2.02      Use of Services for Intended Purpose Only. The User shall use the Services and Content for its intended purpose only.

RRTC is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any such dealings.

 

Finally, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary otherwise contained herein, by posting or uploading a Submission through the Services, the User grants RRTC a royalty-free perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, unrestricted, worldwide license to: (i) use, reproduce, store, adapt, translate, modify, make derivative works from, transmit, distribute, publicly perform or display such Submission for any purpose; and (ii) to sublicense to third parties the unrestricted right to exercise any of the foregoing rights. In addition to the grant of the above license, the User hereby (i) agrees to waive all moral rights in any Submission in favour of RRTC; (ii) consents to his or its personal information, including without limitation, name, address, phone number and email appearing as the contributor of any Submission, where applicable, and to the disclosure and/or display of such information and any other information which appears in or is associated with a Submission; (iii) acknowledges and agrees that RRTC is not responsible for any loss, damage, or corruption that may occur to any Submission; and (iv) acknowledges and agrees that any Submission the Licensee provides using the Services will be considered non-confidential.

If RRTC determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that a User has breached or will breach a term or condition of these Terms of Use or that such transaction or communication is inappropriate, RRTC may cancel such transaction or take any other action to restrict access to or the availability of any material that may be considered objectionable, without any liability to the User or any third party. Further, in such event, RRTC may, in its sole and absolute discretion, immediately terminate this Terms of Use Agreement by providing notice to the User.

 

2.05      Industry Analysis. RRTC reserves the non-expiring right to use the textual and numerical statistical portion of all data in RRTC Services and Content at any time to conduct analysis for industry trends as long as the data is not singularly isolated and labeled as the User’s data. In the event that the User’s data is identified as a contributing statistical source, a minimum of two additional sources of data will be combined in the analysis so the User’s data remains unknown.

 

2.06         Prohibiting Access. RRTC and the User agree that the RRTC Services are of special and unique value, and not easily compensated for in the event the User breaches this Terms of Use Agreement. For that reason, RRTC and the User agree that RRTC may be entitled to use legal means such as an injunction to stop the prohibited use of the RRTC Services and Content by the User or others for whom the User is responsible at law.
