Use of Accessengineering

All of the AccessEngineering owned content is either the property of Publisher or is licensed to Publisher and is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. The User shall honor all reasonable requests by Publisher to protect Publisher's proprietary interests in AccessEngineering. During the term of your subscription to AccessEngineering, Publisher hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use AccessEngineering for the fees and under the terms described in this Agreement. For individual subscriptions, only one person at a time may access AccessEngineering using the User's screen name and password. No User may share or distribute to a third party any screen name or passwords. You may access and use materials from the AccessEngineering site for your own research or study only. You may not otherwise copy, transmit, rent, lend, sell, or modify any materials from AccessEngineering or modify or remove any proprietary notices contained therein, or create derivative works based on materials from AccessEngineering. You may not engage in systematic retrieval of Content from the AccessEngineering to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection, compilation, database or directory without prior written permission from Publisher.

Publisher reserves the right to terminate the User's subscription at any time if the User downloads or prints out a substantial portion of AccessEngineering. The User may not disseminate any portion of AccessEngineering through electronic means, including mail lists or electronic bulletin boards and agrees not to restrict or inhibit any other User's access to, or use of, AccessEngineering. Except for the limited rights granted User herein, all rights in the AccessEngineering materials are reserved by Publisher and User acquires no right, title or interest in any such materials.

Other Content

The User grants to Publisher the perpetual, non-exclusive right to use all material entered into AccessEngineering by the User (other than third-party material transmitted through private electronic mail) in any of Publisher's print or electronic publications.

Users entering material into AccessEngineering are responsible for the content of that material. Neither Publisher nor the Publisher Designated Online Providers have any responsibility for Other Content, including the content of any messages or information posted by Users or others, or for the content of information accessible via direct or indirect hyperlinks from AccessEngineering. However, Publisher retains the right, which it may or may not exercise in its sole discretion, to review, edit, or delete Other Content which Publisher deems to be illegal, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate.

You may not input or distribute any material through AccessEngineering which is promotional in nature, including solicitations for funds or business, without the prior written authorization of Publisher.

The User agrees to indemnify Publisher and the Publisher Designated Online Providers from all damages, liabilities, costs, charges and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, which Publisher, its affiliates, employees and the Publisher Designated Online Providers may incur as a result of either: (i) the User's violation of this Agreement; or (ii) material entered into AccessEngineering with the use of the User's screen name or password. Publisher reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any such matter for which the User has agreed to indemnify Publisher or the Publisher Designated Online Providers.
