Lighthouse Independent Media Pte Ltd (‘LH”) reserves the right to change the terms of this Agreement. Changes will be posted on the ITNews Asia website (www.itnews-asia.com). If any of these changes are unacceptable, you may terminate your subscription as described below under “Term and Termination.” Use of ITNA following the posting of any changes to these terms and conditions constitutes acceptance of those changes by the User.
ITNA contains two types of content:
Use of ITNA
LH hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use ITNA for the fees and under the terms described in this Agreement. Only one person at a time may access ITNA using the User’s screen name and password without the prior consent of LH.
Fees are determined by the extent of use. The User may not disseminate any portion of ITNA through electronic means, including mail lists or electronic bulletin boards, without the prior consent of LH. Consent for special arrangements regarding electronic distribution may be obtained from LH.
Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement, ITNA may not be reproduced, transmitted, or distributed without LH’s permission. The User may not commingle any portion of ITNA with any other information and shall not edit, modify, or alter any portion. All of ITNA’s own content is either the property of LH or is licensed to LH. The User shall honour all reasonable requests by LH to protect LH’s proprietary interests in ITNA.
Changes to User Agreement
ITNA reserve the right to change, alter, replace or otherwise modify the User Agreement at any time.
The User’s Content
The User grants to LH the non-exclusive right to use all material entered into ITNA by the User (other than third-party material transmitted through private electronic mail) in any of LH’ print or electronic publications.
Users entering material into ITNA are responsible for the content of that material. LH takes no 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 ITNA. However, LH retains the right, which it may or may not exercise in its sole discretion, to review, edit, or delete Other Content which LH deems to be illegal, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate.
You may not input or distribute any material through ITNA that is promotional in nature, including solicitations for funds or business, without the prior written authorization of LH.
The User agrees to indemnify LH from all damages, liabilities, costs, charges and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which LH, their affiliates, employees, and authorized representatives may incur as a result of either: (i) the User’s breach of this Agreement; or (ii) material entered into ITNA with the use of the User’s screen name or password. LH reserves the right to assume the exclusive defence and control of any such matter for which the User has agreed to indemnify LH in which event the User shall have no further obligation to indemnify concerning that particular matter.
No warranties/Limitations on liability
LH makes no guarantees or warranties as to the accuracy or completeness of or results to be obtained from, accessing and using ITNA’s own content, the other content, nor any material that can be accessed (via a direct or indirect hyperlink or otherwise) through ITNA. LH shall be liable to the user or anyone else for any inaccuracy, delay, interruption in service, error or omission, regardless of cause, or for any damages resulting therefrom. In no event will LH nor any of their third-party licensors be liable for any indirect, special or consequential damages, including but not limited to, lost time, lost money, lost profits or goodwill, whether in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, and whether or not such damages are foreseen or unforeseen concerning any use of ITNA. User agrees that all demands of whatever kind assessed against LH or any of its third-party licensors arising out of relating to use of ITNA shall not exceed the total amount the user paid to LH for use of ITNA during the previous twelve (12) months (or if you have subscribed for fewer than twelve (12) months, during the time since the user’s subscription began).
Term and Termination
This Agreement will continue until terminated by either LH or you. The Agreement can be terminated by either party by notifying the other party by telephone or electronic mail of the decision to terminate.
LH may discontinue or change ITNA, or its availability to you, at any time.
ITNA reserves the right to qualify subscribers to a complimentary subscription. ITNA also reserves the right to suspend the complimentary subscription at any given time during the one-year period.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to ITNA and supersedes any and all other agreements, oral or in writing, with respect to ITNA. The failure of LH to insist upon strict compliance with any term of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver with regard to any subsequent failure to comply with such term or provision. This Agreement is personal to you, and you may not assign your rights or obligations to anyone. If any provision in this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. This Agreement, your rights and obligations, and all actions contemplated by this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Singapore, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within Singapore.
