3.3 The Customer acknowledges that in view of the fact that the Database contains third party data, the data in the Database is provided on an ‘as is’ basis, and no assurance in respect of it is provided (including without limitation any assurance with regard to its correctness, accuracy, completeness, fitness for any purpose, or otherwise).

3.4.1 any modification, variation, configuration or addition to the Service not performed by PCA (for the avoidance of doubt, any issues resulting from the acts or omissions of the Authorised Reseller are to be addressed by the Customer directly with the Authorised Reseller as PCA will not be liable for such issues);

4 The Service
Customer’s Confirmation of Accuracy Of Registration Details
4.1 The Customer confirms that all information which it provides to use the respective Service and any additional information which it provides pursuant to this Agreement, will at the time it is provided (and will continue to) be accurate and complete. If the information becomes inaccurate, incomplete or misleading any time thereafter, then (without prejudice to PCA’s additional rights and remedies), the Customer will promptly update its details in the Account Section, to ensure that its details remain accurate and complete. The Customer also agrees that it will promptly notify PCA in writing if it ceases to use, or changes, its Authorised Reseller.
Customer’s Own Use Only & Audits

4.4 The Customer agrees to provide: reasonable access to the premises, facilities and personnel of the Customer; and reasonable information; to allow PCA or the Licensors to verify that the Customer is using the Service in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the requirements of the Licensors. Furthermore, the Customer acknowledges that PCA may need to provide information in relation to the identity of the Customer and the Customer’s use of the respective Service to the Licensors (and in the case of any data services using data from Ordnance Survey, then the disclosure requirement would also extend to Royal Mail Group plc, for the purposes of this Clause), as a requirement to allow the Customer to use the Licensor’s data, software and materials. The Customer hereby expressly consents to such disclosure by PCA to the Licensors pursuant to this Clause 4.4, and for the respective Licensors to contact the Customer in relation to the Customer’s use of the Licensor’s licensed data, software and other materials.
Account & Technical Changes By PCA
4.5 PCA (acting reasonably) reserves the right to vary the technical specifications of the Service at any time, or change Account Codes or Passwords, giving the Customer as much notice as is reasonably possible.
Visibility Of Records By The Customer
Visibility Of Records By The Supplier
5.1 The Customer acknowledges that PCA will (and the relevant Authorised Reseller may) be able to view certain of the details in the Account Section, together with other information related to the Customer’s use of the Service (including without limitation, the Customer’s Account Code and Licence Key).
6 Password Security
6.1 The Customer shall maintain the confidentiality and security of its Passwords and any Account Code disclosed to it. The Customer shall notify PCA or the Authorised Reseller immediately if it believes that the Account Code or Password has been, or is reasonably likely to be, used in any unauthorised way.
Changing The Details
6.2 If there has been unauthorised use of the Customer’s account which is brought to PCA’s attention, or if the Customer has forgotten the Password, then PCA may issue a new Account Codeor Password to enable continued use of the Service (or alternatively PCA may disable the Customer’s access to the Account Section and any Services, if PCA reasonably believes that the unauthorised use of the Customer’s account is due to the wrongful or negligent acts or omissions of the Customer). This is without prejudice to PCA’s additional rights and remedies against the Customer.
Responsibility For Unauthorised Use
6.3 The Customer agrees that it is liable and responsible for all transactions undertaken using the Account Code or Password. With regard to any unauthorised transactions, these must be promptly reported to PCA, and except to the extent that such transactions have occurred due to the wrongful acts of the Supplier, the Customer accepts full responsibility and liability for such transactions.
Caveat To Limitations And Exclusions Of Liability
7.1 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, nothing in this Agreement shall limit or exclude PCA’s liability for: death; personal injury; fraud; fraudulent misrepresentation; and any liability which may not be lawfully limited or excluded.
7.2 Subject to Clauses 7.1 and 7.12, neither Party shall be liable in any circumstances to the other Party for consequential, special, incidental or indirect losses, or the following losses whether direct, consequential, special, incidental or indirect losses: loss of profits; loss of revenue; loss of turnover; loss of sales; economic loss; loss of business or contracts; loss of anticipated savings or goodwill; loss of software or data; (or any losses arising from a claim by a third party for any of the afore-mentioned losses); whether such losses arise under contract (including without limitation in relation to any deliberate repudiatory and fundamental breaches), statute, tort (including without limitation, negligence), or otherwise. However, Clauses 7.2 and 7.6, do not operate to negate any express refund obligations explicitly stated to be accepted by PCA in Clause 8.14.1.
7.3 Where any software, data, documents or service is expressed to be provided on an ‘as is’ basis, or where PCA has expressly excluded its liability for the respective issue, then subject to Clause 7.1, PCA accepts no liability in such circumstances.
7.4 Subject to Clause 7.1, where any remedy is expressed to be a sole and exclusive remedy, then that respective remedy applies.
7.5 Subject to Clause 7.1, the liability limits in Clause 7.6 apply where:
7.5.1 the liability is not limited or excluded within the scope of any of Clauses 7.2 to 9.2 (inclusive).
7.6 Subject to Clauses 7.1 to 7.5 (inclusive) and 7.12, the aggregate liability of PCA for all claims arising under or in connection with this Agreement (whether arising under contract (including without limitation in relation to any deliberate repudiatory and fundamental breaches), statute, tort (including without limitation, negligence), or otherwise) shall be limited as follows in respect of the issues for which PCA is found liable:
7.6.1 in respect of the totality of all issues with the Services and Service Output, where the causes giving rise to the liability on the part of PCA occur within a particular Year, to a total aggregate amount of that respective Year’s paid amounts by the Customer to the Authorised Reseller (the “Liability Cap”) (for the avoidance of doubt, any amount spent from a Credit whether in the same or a different Year, will not constitute an additional amount of charges for the purposes of this Clause, as the purchase of the Credit counts towards the 'paid amounts' by the Customer to the Authorised Reseller, and therefore spending of Credits does not count, to avoid double-counting)), with such Liability Cap limiting PCA’s collective liability for the totality of all such issues within that Year (and for the avoidance of doubt, if there are two issues within a Year, then the aggregate liability of PCA arising in respect of such 2 issues collectively, would equate to 100% of the charges paid in that respective Year and not 200% of the charges paid in that respective Year); or
7.6.2 in respect of the totality of all liability for collectively all other issues arising under or in connection with this Agreement, which are not limited by Clause 7.6.1, nor limited or excluded by any other provision of this Agreement, to the aggregate amount of £5,000 (the “Additional Liability Cap”).
7.7 If the Customer has not paid any amounts invoiced in a particular Year, but suffers an issue in that Year for which PCA is liable, then for the purposes of Clause 7.6.1, the ‘Liability Cap’ for the current Year will equate to the greater of:
7.7.1 £5,000; or
7.7.2 the total amount paid by the Customer to the Authorised Reseller in the immediately preceding Year.
7.8 The Customer acknowledges that the charges in respect of this Agreement have been calculated on the basis that PCA will exclude and limit its liability as set out in this Agreement, and that the limitations and exclusions of liability in this Agreement are therefore reasonable.
7.9 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary (but subject to Clause 7.1):
7.9.1 the exclusions of liability in Clause 7 prevail; and
7.9.2 PCA’s liability under or in connection with this Agreement will not exceed the limits referred to in Clause 7; and
7.9.3 where the Agreement refers to any limitation or exclusion of liability of PCA, such limitation or exclusion applies whether the respective liability arises under contract (including without limitation in relation to any deliberate repudiatory and fundamental breaches), statute, tort (including without limitation, negligence), or otherwise.
Limitation Time Period
7.10 The Customer acknowledges that any claims which it wishes to pursue against PCA will be raised promptly. The Parties therefore agree that PCA shall not be held liable for any liability in respect of events occurring during the term of this Agreement, where the respective claim is not brought through legal proceedings against PCA within 12 months following the earlier of:
(1) when the event giving rise to the cause of action arose; and (2) termination of the Agreement.
Consequences For Exhaustion Of Liability Limits
7.11 The Parties agree that either Party may terminate the Agreement for convenience, if the Liability Cap or Additional Liability Cap becomes exhausted by the Customer successfully bringing claims against PCA (which are determined by a Court, or agreed between the Parties, as owing) for at least the total amount of the Liability Cap or the Additional Liability Cap. In such circumstances, such termination of itself will not give rise to any additional remedies nor refund rights.
Customer’s Additional Obligations In Respect Of Wrongful Actions
7.12 The Customer agrees that it will be liable for all amounts to (whether arising in respect of any or all of the following circumstances):
7.12.1 PCA and the Licensors in respect of, and relating to, any claim made against, or loss incurred or suffered by, PCA and/or the Licensors where this is wholly or in part attributable directly or indirectly to the Customer breaching any of the provisions of the Third Party Contracts. Furthermore, the Customer agrees that if PCA is required to pay any sums to any third party as a result of the Customer breaching any of the Third Party Contracts, then the Customer will, immediately upon notice, reimburse PCA in full with the amount which PCA has had to pay to such third party as a result;
7.12.2 PCA in respect of any breaches of PCA’s or its third parties’ intellectual property rights (including without limitation, copyright and trademarks); and
7.12.3 PCA for any breaches of the Agreement which are undertaken with the deliberate intention of breaching this Agreement (with the Customer being deemed to be aware of all of the provisions of this Agreement).
8 Term, Termination and Suspension
8.1 The Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and continue in force until it is terminated in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement.
8.2 The licences granted to use the respective Services pursuant to the Agreement ) will be valid for the shorter of the following respective periods:

8.2.3 the termination of the Agreement.
Temporary Suspension Of Service
8.3 PCA may temporarily suspend the Service for emergency or urgent operational reasons, but where reasonably practicable, it will give the Customer advance warning of such suspension.
Suspension For Abnormal Use
8.4 If PCA reasonably believes that the Customer’s abnormal use of the Service or Software Materials is impairing the Service’s performance or resulting in abnormal credit consumption (as reasonably determined by PCA), then PCA may suspend the Customer’s access until the cause of the impairment has been resolved (such suspension will not affect the Customer’s requirement to continue paying the relevant charges for the suspended Service).
Termination Or Suspension by PCA
8.5 PCA will have the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice (however, suspension will occur automatically following email notification if any payment is not made by the respective due date by the Customer) if the Customer fails to comply with any provision of this Agreement (such suspension will not affect the Customer’s requirement to continue paying the relevant charges for the suspended Service, nor will it extend the respective Subscription Period in respect of any credit; termination of the Agreement in such circumstances will also not entitle the Customer to any refund).
8.6 PCA may terminate the Agreement (in whole or in part) immediately upon notice to the Customer at any time, if:
8.6.1 PCA is no longer able to make available the Service (in whole or in part) due to the acts or omissions of the Licensors;
8.6.2 any of the Third Party Contracts terminate for any reason;
8.6.3 the Licensors vary their terms and conditions, requirements, or pricing in a manner which adversely affects PCA or the Customer;
8.6.4 a Licensor claims that the use of the Database in the manner in which they are being used by PCA or the Customer is not permitted; or
8.6.5 The Customer brings PCA or the Licensors into disrepute.
8.7 Without prejudice to Clause 8.6, PCA may terminate the Agreement for convenience on 90 days’ notice to the Customer at any time, and in such event, PCA will provide a pro-rata refund in accordance with Clause 8.14.1.
8.8 The respective Third Party EULA will automatically terminate with immediate effect if the corresponding Third Party Licence is terminated, and consequently the respective Service which was subject to such Third Party Contracts will also automatically terminate immediately. PCA will provide prompt notice of such event to the Customer.
8.9 PCA may terminate the Agreement in whole or in part for convenience at any time upon written notice (with such termination being effective on the date specified in the respective notice), where such termination is necessary for PCA to comply with the Third Party Licences.
Termination By The Customer
8.10 The Customer may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect, if PCA is in material breach of this Agreement (however, where such breach is capable of remedy, the Customer must provide PCA with at least 30 days written notice (with express written reference to its right to terminate the Agreement pursuant to this Clause) allowing PCA to remedy the breach, and only if PCA does not remedy the breach within this time period, may the Customer terminate the Agreement).
Termination By Either Party
8.11 Either Party (the “Terminating Party”) may terminate the Agreement immediately by notice to the other Party (the “Defaulting Party”) if:
8.11.1 the Defaulting Party is unable to pay its debts as they fall due or otherwise becomes insolvent, or if a receiver or an administrative receiver is appointed over any or all of the assets of the Defaulting Party, or if any arrangement, compromise or composition of the Defaulting Party’s debts is proposed or made by the Defaulting Party, or if the Defaulting Party enters or is entered into any proceedings for administration or liquidation or otherwise becomes subject to dissolution proceedings, or if any analogous event occurs in any other jurisdiction in which the Defaulting Party carries out its business;
8.11.2 the Defaulting Party unreasonably discloses any confidential information of the Terminating Party (or of the Licensor); (where any reasonable disclosure is necessary, then the disclosing Party will ensure that any such disclosure is subject to a reasonable duty of confidentiality being accepted by the third party recipient of such confidential information).

8.12 Termination of the Agreement is without prejudice to both Parties’ accrued rights and remedies.
8.13 The provisions of this Agreement which are expressed to, or intended to, survive termination, shall continue in full force and effect.

8.14.2 the Agreement is terminated by the Customer pursuant to Clauses 8.10 or 8.11; then the Customer will be entitled to a pro-rata refund of the amount of Licence Fees at the date of termination of the Agreement, to reflect the extent to which it is no longer able to use the respective Service for the unexpired Subscription Period, with such payment being calculated and determined by PCA acting reasonably. The Customer agrees that this is the sole and exclusive financial remedy of the Customer in such circumstances.
9 Force Majeure
9.1 If either Party is prevented from complying with its obligations due to any event beyond its reasonable control (such event being referred to as a “Force Majeure Event”) (including without limitation, any issues arising from the data, software or documentation supplied by the Licensors), it shall not be in breach of this Agreement nor otherwise liable to the other Party by reason of any delay in performance or non-performance of any of its obligations due to such events. However, this Clause does not excuse the Customer from complying with its payment obligations, nor from compliance with the Third Party Contracts, by itself claiming the benefit of a Force Majeure Event.
9.2 If a Force Majeure Event continues for a period of more than 14 consecutive days, then either Party may terminate the Agreement for convenience during the continuance of such Force Majeure Event. In such circumstances, both Parties acknowledge that there will be no compensation due from either Party to the other for termination in such circumstances.
10 Assignment And Subcontracting
10.1 The Customer may not assign this Agreement (whether in whole or in part) without the prior written consent of PCA (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld).
10.2 PCA may subcontract and assign any or all of its obligations and rights pursuant to this Agreement, without requiring the prior consent of the Customer.
11.1 No variation of this Agreement shall be effective unless it is in writing and is signed by an authorised representative of each Party, although any pricing arrangements tailored to the Customer may be expressly agreed by PCA by email.
11.2 Any discretion exercised by PCA from time to time, to afford the Customer any additional rights or benefits which are not afforded by the Agreement (in circumstances where such additional rights or benefits were the clear and deliberate intention of PCA), will only operate on that occasion and not operate as a variation of the Agreement with regard to any other occasions, unless otherwise expressly stated with the provisions of Clause 11.1 having been complied with.
12.1 If at any time any part of this Agreement becomes void or unenforceable under any applicable law it shall be deemed to be deleted from this Agreement and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall continue unaffected. In such circumstances, the Parties will use reasonable endeavours to substitute the omitted provision with a valid replacement which achieves to the closest extent reasonably and lawfully possible, the intention of the omitted provision.
13.1 No provision of the Agreement shall be waived unless expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement in respect of any rights or remedies, or agreed to be waived by both Parties in writing; however, where a right must be exercised within a specified time period, then that right will be waived if it is not exercised within such time period. If any provision is waived, then that waiver shall operate for that instance only and not future instances, unless agreed otherwise by both Parties in writing.
14 Entire Agreement
14.1 This Agreement (which includes the relevant Third Party Contracts) contains the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement (the “Subject Matter”) and supersedes and replaces all other written and oral communications between the Parties relating to the Subject Matter. Except for the express provisions in this Agreement (and any express provisions contained in any documentation which is expressly incorporated), all other warranties, conditions, terms, representations, statements, undertakings and obligations whether express or implied by statute, common law, custom, usage or otherwise are hereby excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law. The Parties hereby confirm that they have not relied upon any representations, communications or other matters which have not been expressly stated in this Agreement, whether as an inducement to enter into this Agreement or otherwise. This Clause 14.1 operates subject to Clauses 14.2 and 14.3.
14.2 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Agreement, all implied: terms, conditions and warranties, (including without limitation those relating to satisfactory quality and fitness for purpose); whether:
14.2.1 implied by statute, common law, custom, usage or otherwise; or
14.2.2 otherwise sought to be expressly incorporated (including without limitation where sought to be incorporated by any express provision of this Agreement);
are hereby excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law. This Clause 14.2 operates subject to Clause 14.3.
14.3 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, nothing in this Agreement limits or excludes either Party’s liability for fraudulent misrepresentations.
15 Law And Jurisdiction
15.1 This Agreement and any dispute or claim arising in connection with it shall be governed by the laws of England and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts to which the Parties irrevocably submit.
16.1 Any notices to PCA in relation to this Agreement, must be sent in writing to The Legal Department, Postcode Anywhere (Europe) Ltd, Waterside, Basin Road, Worcester WR5 3DA or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices will only be validly served pursuant to this Agreement by the Customer, where the notice has been sent by tracked delivery (which can be used to reasonably demonstrate that the notice was received by PCA) or where receipt of the notice is acknowledged in writing by PCA.

2.3 Afnemer zal de NCB data en/of unieke sleutels niet zodanig aanwenden dat daarmee in strijd wordt gehandeld met het door Cendris kenbaar gemaakt gebruiksdoel van de NCB data, of in strijd handelen met de goede naam van Cendris, Koninklijke PostNL B.V., of van de andere bronleveranciers van het Nationaal Consumenten Bestand waaruit de NCB data worden betrokken.
2.4 Afnemer zal de ter zake van het gebruik van de NCB data geldende wettelijke regels in acht nemen waaronder begrepen doch niet beperkt tot de Wet bescherming Persoonsgegevens en de Telecommunicatiewet alsmede overige wettelijke verplichtingen als nader uiteengezet.
2.5 Behalve indien dit voor dataonderhoud van consumentengegevens noodzakelijk is, mogen de door Cendris verstrekte NCB data niet op enegerlei wijze door Afnemer worden openbaar gemaakt of verveelvoudigd, öpgevraagd”of “hergebruikt” in de zin van de Databankwet (waaronder het opslaan in een geautomatiseerd bestand) of anderszins aan enige derde ter beschikking worden gesteld.
3 Overige wettelijke verplichtingen
3.1 Afnemer staat er voor in dat de door Human Inference geleverde NCB data en unieke sleutels niet door haar zullen worden gebruikt op een wijze:
a) dat daarmee de privacybelangen van de met NAW(T) verrijkte opgenomen natuurlijk personen worden geschaad, bijvoorbeeld doordat het ‘bel-mij-niet’-register of andere wettelijke regels met betrekking tot het ‘bel-mij-niet’-register (zoals het ontdubbelen) niet in acht worden genomen;
b) dat in strijd wordt gehandeld met het door Cendris kenbaar gemaakte gebruiksdoel;
c) welke in strijd is met enige wettelijke bepaling en/of richtlijnen van de DDMA en andere brancheorganisaties.
3.2 Indien Afnemer op grond van artikel 35, lid 2 van de Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens een verzoek ontvangt van een natuurlijk persoon voor het recht van inzage met betrekking tot de herkomst van persoonsgegevens, zal Afnemer dit verzoek onverwijld schriftelijk of telefonisch doorgeven aan Human Inference, om haar in staat te stellen te voldoen aan het recht van inzage van de degene op wie het persoonsgegeven betrekking heeft door direct met de natuurlijke persoon in contact te treden. De benodigde contactgegevens kunnen worden gevonden op de contactpagina van de Human Inference website.
4. Intellectuele Eigendom
4.1 Tenzij uitdrukkelijk anders overeengekomen blijven de intellectuele eigendomsrechten (waaronder begrepen auteursrechten en databankrechten) van alle in het kader van deze Overeenkomst aan een Partij ter beschikking gestelde producten (waaronder software, gegevens en gegevensbestanden) bij de verstrekkende Partij en worden deze niet aan Afnemer overgedragen.
4.2 Met betrekking tot de in artikel 4.1 bedoelde producten wordt aan Afnemer slechts een persoonlijk en niet-overdraagbaar gebruiksrecht verleend; dit recht komt niet (mede) toe aan met Afnemer gelieerde ondernemingen of instellingen.
Afnemer is niet gerechtigd om de producten te kopiëren of op andere wijze te vermenigvuldigen, dan wel deze op welke wijze dan ook openbaar te maken, anders dan overeenkomstig hetgeen daarover in de desbetreffende overeenkomst is bepaald. Voor zover de producten uit gegevens of gegevensbestanden bestaan, mogen deze niet worden "opgevraagd" of "hergebruikt" in de zin van de Automotivedatabankenwet, behoudens voor zover dit noodzakelijk is ter verwezenlijking van het overeengekomen gebruik van die gegevens of gegevensbestanden. De voorgaande beperkingen laten de rechten van de ontvangende Partij, voortvloeiende uit de artikelen 45j en 45k van de Auteurswet 1912 (het toegestane eigen gebruik voor backup- en archiefdoeleinden) onverlet.
4.3 Zonder voorafgaande schriftelijke toestemming is het Partijen niet toegestaan om logo’s, merken, handelsnamen of andere intellectuele eigendommen van elkaar te gebruiken in de communicatie (advertenties en andere reclame-uitingen daaronder begrepen) met derden.
4.4 Onverminderd het bepaalde in de Algemene Voorwaarden van Cendris of Human Inference is Human Inference gerechtigd deze Overeenkomst tussentijds met onmiddellijke ingang en zonder rechterlijke tussenkomst en zonder daarmee tot enige schadevergoeding gehouden te zijn te beëindigen door middel van een daartoe gericht aangetekend schrijven, indien:
a. Afnemer buiten de grenzen treedt van de aan haar toegestane gebruiksdoeleinden dan wel anderszins inbreuk maakt op de (intellectuele eigendoms)rechten van Human Inference of Cendris, en/of
b. Cendris aan haar verplichtingen niet meer kan voldoen op grond van gewijzigde wet- of regelgeving of de uitspraak van een rechterlijke of toezichthoudende instantie.
4.5 Bij alle uitingen, in welke vorm dan ook, die Afnemers initiëren en waarin Cendris en/of Koninklijke PostNL B.V. worden genoemd en/of het logo, een (beeld)merk, (handels)naam, huisstijl of andere uiting van (één van) voornoemde partijen wordt gebruikt, zal Afnemer voordat de uiting wordt geplaatst de schriftelijke toestemming moeten verkrijgen van Cendris. Dit houdt tevens in dat er niet gebeld mag worden namens Cendris en/of PostNL. Afnemers mogen wel vermelden dat Cendris en/of PostNL als één van de bronnen voor haar diensten fungeert.
4.6 In geval van overtreding van één van de bepalingen van artikel 4.2 of 4.3, verbeurt Afnemer (per overtreding) aan Human Inference c.q. Cendris een eenmalige, onmiddellijke en niet voor verrekening vatbare boete van € 50.000,--, alsmede een boete van € 5.000,-- voor elke dag of gedeelte daarvan dat de overtreding voortduurt, één en ander onverminderd het recht van Cendris c.q. Human Inference op vergoeding van de door haar geleden en te lijden schade.
