HIS Terms & Conditions

HIS Subscription Product Terms

These HIS Subscription Product Terms and the Order confirming Customer’s subscription to any HIS Subscription Product (together the “Agreement”) form a binding contract between Newmarket International, Inc. (“NI”) and the business entity named on the Order (“Customer”) and govern NI’s provision of, and Customer’s use of, the HIS Subscription Products and all market intelligence information provided by NI in conjunction with the HIS Subscription Products (“HIS Information”).

NI may revise these HIS Subscription Product Terms from time to time at NI’s discretion by placing revised HIS Subscription Product Terms on the Web Site and providing notice to Customer as described in Section 10.   The revised HIS Subscription Product Terms will become effective and replace previous versions upon the next renewal of the Customer’s Subscription Term.

1.                SCOPE OF AGREEMENT AND LICENSE GRANT.  Use of HIS Subscription Products and HIS Information is licensed, not sold. Subject to compliance with this Agreement, NI grants Customer, for the Subscription Term, a nontransferable, nonexclusive right to access the HIS Subscription Products described in the Order online at https://www.knowland.com/amadeus-terms (“Web Site”). HIS Subscription Products and HIS Information may only be used by Customer’s sales and catering staff who are authorized by Customer to access HIS Subscription Products on Customer’s behalf (“Authorized Users”) for the internal business purposes of Customer’s property(ies) at the location(s) specified in the Order (“Property”). Each Authorized User must have a unique user ID and password combination for using HIS Subscription Products (“User Account”). Multiple individuals shall not share a User Account. Any reproduction and/or distribution of HIS Information or any derivative works thereof outside of the Property or use for any purpose other than operation of the Property is strictly prohibited.

2.     SUBSCRIPTION TERM.  Except as otherwise provided in an Order, the Subscription Term will commence on the Effective Date and continue for an initial term of 12 months.  Thereafter, the Subscription Term will automatically renew for successive annual renewal terms until either party elects not to renew by providing the other party at least thirty (30) days advance written notice of its election not to renew.  Either party may terminate the Subscription Term if the other party is in material breach of this Agreement if the breach remains uncured thirty (30) days from the non-defaulting party providing written notice specifying the breach.  Termination of the Subscription Term automatically terminates Customer’s license to access and use HIS Subscription Products and HIS Information. Customer will immediately discontinue use of HIS Subscription Products and, at NI’s option, return or destroy all HIS Information.

3.    FEES AND PAYMENT.     The Subscription Fees and invoicing terms for the initial term will be specified on the Order. Subscription Fees for each renewal term will be at NI’s prevailing rates at the time of renewal.   NI will invoice all fees for renewal terms annually in advance and payment will be due prior to commencement of the renewal term.  Except as required to resolve warranty claims all Orders are non-cancellable and all Fees are nonrefundable.  All sales will be billed in U.S. dollars unless otherwise specified in the Order.   Undisputed past due amounts bear interest at 1.5% per month or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less.   All fees are exclusive of, and Customer will pay, all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, excluding taxes based solely on NI’s income.

4.     RESTRICTIONS  AND  SUSPENSION.    Customer shall not: i) remove or alter any copyright notices or other proprietary legends contained in the HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information; ii) disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer HIS Subscription Product; iii) create Internet “links” to HIS Subscription Product; iv) reproduce, distribute, “frame”, or “mirror” any part of HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information other than as permitted pursuant to Section 1; v) access or copy HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information in order to develop or provide a similar or competitive product or service; vi) make HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information accessible or available to any third party; or vii) use HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information in violation of any law or regulation.  Customer is responsible for all activity occurring through its User Accounts. Customer shall promptly notify NI of any known or suspected breach of security (including unauthorized use of User Accounts) or use of HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information in breach of this Agreement.  NI may monitor HIS Subscription Products activity and suspend any User Account(s): i) where applicable Fees have not been paid; ii) which NI reasonably believes are not authorized or are being used in violation of this Agreement, including any activity harmful or potentially harmful to the HIS Subscription Products or unauthorized dissemination of HIS Information.  NI will promptly notify Customer of any suspension and will work with Customer in good faith to resolve the issues which prompted suspension. Customer will not receive a refund or credit for any period of suspension.  NI reserves the right to assess a reconnection fee in the event the suspension results from Customer’s failure to pay the applicable fees or Customer’s intentional violation of this Agreement. Suspension is without prejudice to other remedies available to NI for any Violation of this Agreement by Customer.

5.     NEWMARKET RIGHTS, INFORMATION, AND PRIVACY.  NI and its third party licensors own all right, title and interest in: i) HIS Subscription Products (including all software, text, graphics, images, audio and visual information, online tutorials, documents, specifications, and other content) and all HIS Information and all intellectual property embodied therein; and ii) any recommendations, suggestions,  enhancement requests,  ideas,  or  other  information related  to  NI’s  products  or  services. Customer is responsible for acquiring and maintaining computer systems and telecommunication services necessary to access and use HIS Subscription Product.

6.     ACCESS.  Customer grants NI the right to access the public areas of Client’s properties for purposes of collecting reader board information.  Information collected by NI from Customer’s reader boards and other information in plain view within the public areas of Customer’s property are NOT subject to NI’s privacy policy.

7.     WARRANTIES.   NI warrants that HIS Subscription Products will perform substantially in conformance with the online help documentation under normal use and circumstances.  NI does not warrant that HIS Subscription Products will be secure or free of viruses or other harmful components, or operate without interruption.  NI does not warrant that HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information will be error-free or achieve any results expected by Customer.  EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESSED WARRANTIES DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION, NI DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

8.     LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.   NI will be liable only for actual direct damages incurred by Customer as a direct result of NI’s gross negligence, willful misconduct, or failure to exercise reasonable care in providing HIS Subscription Product.  NI has no liability for any indirect, consequential, or punitive loss, damage or expense, including any loss of data, revenue, profits or use, even if advised of the possibility of such loss or damage.  Except for NI’s liability pursuant to Section 9, in no event will NI’s aggregate liability exceed the fees paid, or payable, by Customer during the one (1) year period preceding the event giving rise to the liability.

9.     INFRINGEMENT INDEMNIFICATION.   NI will defend or settle, at its own expense, any action brought against Customer alleging HIS Subscription Products or Customer’s use of HIS Subscription Products infringes any patent, copyright or other proprietary right enforceable in the United States.  NI will pay all costs and damages finally awarded in any such action.  NI’s obligations under this section are subject to Customer: i) providing prompt written notice of the claim; ii) granting NI sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim; iii) not performing any action prejudicial to NI’s ability to defend the claim; and iv) providing cooperation and information reasonably requested by NI, at NI’s expense.  NI has no liability for any claim based on use of HIS Subscription Products or HIS Information: i) in violation of this Agreement; or ii) in combination with other software, hardware or materials not provided or specified by NI.  If operation of HIS Subscription Products is enjoined despite NI’s commercially reasonable efforts to procure rights to continue operating HIS Subscription Products or modify HIS Subscription Products to make it non-infringing, NI may terminate the Subscription Term and issue a refund of a prorated portion of the Subscription Fee that is applicable to the portion of the Subscription Term following termination.  This Section states NI’s entire liability for any claim of infringement of any intellectual property rights of any kind.

10.   MISCELLANEOUS.  NI may provide notices to Customer by emailing it to the email address or by mailing it to Customer’s postal address, in each case as recorded in NI’s account information.  Notices to NI must be sent by mail or courier to Newmarket International, Inc. 75 New Hampshire Avenue, Portsmouth NH 03801, attention CFO.  Notices sent by email will be effective 24 hours after emailing unless NI receives notice that the email was not delivered.  Other Notices are effective upon receipt.  This Agreement may not be assigned by Customer without the prior written consent of NI, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.  NI may assign this Agreement with advance written notice to Customer.  Any purported assignment in violation of this Section shall be void. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the United States and of the State of New Hampshire, excluding its conflict of law rules.   Any disputes regarding this Agreement or HIS Subscription Products shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of courts within New Hampshire.   The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. Except for timely payment of Fees, neither party shall be responsible for any failure to perform its obligations if performance is prevented or delayed by force majeure conditions or any cause beyond its reasonable control.   Nothing in this Agreement creates any agency, fiduciary, joint venture or partnership relationship between NI and Customer. The failure of NI to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
