Duodecim EBM Guidelines Subscription and License Terms

Definitions

In these Subscription and License Terms, the term “Licensee” refers to: (i) an individual purchasing an EBM Guidelines subscription, either on his or her own behalf or as agent for a corporation or other entity or organization; or (ii) an individual consenting to this Agreement as a condition of using EBM Guidelines through a subscription purchased by a hospital, medical school, library or other institution (“Institution”), where the individual is employed by or affiliated with the Institution.

License

Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd. in consideration of payment of the applicable subscription fee grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license and right to use and access the EBM Guidelines database and software (the “Licensed Materials”) in accordance with the applicable subscription terms:

Individual subscription

An individual subscription permits one individual to access and use the Licensed Materials by using his or her unique user name and password to access the Licensed Materials from any location via the Internet.

Institutional subscription

An Institutional Subscription permits individuals who are employed by or affiliated with the relevant institution to access and use the Licensed Materials at any Internet-connected computer validated for such use by Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd., but only for the clinical, educational or research purposes of the Institution.

Ownership

The Licensed Materials, including without limitation all copyrights and other intellectual property rights therein, are the sole and exclusive property of Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd. or its suppliers.

Permitted uses

Licensee may print out individual articles containing only insubstantial portions of the most current version of the Licensed Materials, but only for 1) Licensee’s personal clinical, educational or research use; 2) teaching healthcare professionals; or 3) consulting with individual colleagues, provided that any printed articles include a source reference to EBM Guidelines and its copyright notice. Licensee is not permitted to print substantial portions of the Licensed Materials.

Prohibited uses

Except as expressly permitted by these Terms, any copying, distribution or modification of the Licensed Materials is strictly prohibited. No part of the Licensed Materials may be copied for resale or other commercial use. No part of the Licensed Materials may be reverse engineered or included in other software. Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd. reserves the right in its sole discretion to change and or cancel an individual’s username and password or to disable an IP address without notice in the event of multiple concurrent logins, excessive search quantities or excessive download traffic volumes. Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd. reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate the license to use the Licensed Materials if the user fails to comply with any term or condition in these terms.

Subscription term

Licensee has obtained the right to use and access the Licensed Materials for a specific limited period of time, i.e., the subscription period for which Licensee has agreed to pay subscription fees. At the end of this period, the license and associated rights, such as technical support, will expire automatically, unless Licensee has renewed the subscription on EBM Guidelines’ then-current terms.

The software should never replace informed medical judgement and diagnosis by a competent licensed physician. The responsibility for all decisions rests solely with the licensee. Furthermore, Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd has no control over the conditions under which the licensee uses the software, and Duodecim Medical Publications Ltd therefore does not and cannot warrant any performance or results.
