Key terms
3. Rights and Limits
3.1. Your License to GBSN RESEARCH
You retain ownership of all content, feedback, and personal information you provide to us, but you grant us a non-exclusive license to use it.

We will honor the choices you make about who sees your information and content, including how it can be used for advertising.

You own the content and information that you submit or upload to the Catalogg website and Services, and by doing so, you are only granting GBSN RESEARCH and our affiliates the following non-exclusive license:

A global, transferable, and sublicensable right to use, copy, alter, distribute, publish, and process information and content provided by you through our Services and the services of others, without further consent, notice, or compensation to you or others. These rights are limited in the following ways:

You may terminate this license for specific content by deleting it from the Services or closing your account, except (a) if you shared it with others as part of the Service and they duplicated, re-shared, or stored it, and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove it from backup and other systems.
Without your explicit permission, we will use your content in ads for Catalogg’s products and services to third parties (including sponsored content). We also have the right to serve ads near your content and information without compensation to you or others, and your social actions may be visible and incorporated with ads, as stated in the Privacy Policy. If you use a Service feature, we may mention that with your name or photo to promote that feature within our Services, subject to your settings.
We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your content beyond the Services. If you choose to share your information as public, we will enable a feature that allows other Members to embed that public post onto third-party services, and we enable search engines to make that public content findable though their services. If you use a Service feature, we may use your name or photo to promote that feature within our Services, depending on your preferences.
If we want to provide others the right to publish your content outside of the Services, we will get your consent first. If you want to make your information public, we will enable a feature that allows other Members to embed that public post on third-party services, as well as search engines to make that public content searchable through their services.
While we may edit and format your content (for example, by translating or transcribing it, changing the size, layout, or file type, or removing metadata), we will not affect the meaning of your expression.
Because you own your content and information and we only have non-exclusive rights to it, you are free to share it with others, including under the terms of a Creative Commons license.
You and GBSN RESEARCH agree that if the content contains private information, it is subject to our Privacy Policy.

You and GBSN RESEARCH agree that we may access, store, process, and utilize any information and personal data you submit in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and your preferences (including settings).

By submitting suggestions or other feedback about our Services to Catalogg, you accept that GBSN RESEARCH may use and share such input for any reason (but is not required to do so) without compensation to you.

You guarantee that you will only provide information and content that you have the legal right to share, and that your Catalogg profile will be truthful.

You agree to provide only content or information that does not infringe the law or the rights of others (including intellectual property rights). You also agree that the information on your profile will be accurate. In some countries, GBSN RESEARCH may be compelled by law to delete certain information or content.

3.2 Service Availability
We reserve the right to change or discontinue any Service at any time, as well as to adjust our rates in the future.

We have the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any of our Services. To the extent permitted by law, we may also change our rates prospectively with fair notice.

We make no promises to save or continue to display any information or material that you’ve posted. Catalogg is a search engine, not a storage service. Except as required by applicable law and as indicated in our Privacy Policy, you agree that we have no responsibility to store, maintain, or provide you with a copy of any content or information that you or others submit.

You use the content and information submitted by users on our Services at your own risk.

Others may provide their own products and services through our Services, and we are not liable for their actions.

We cannot always prevent this use of our Services, and you agree that we are not liable for any such exploitation. You also acknowledge the possibility that you or your organization will be erroneously linked with content about others when we or third-parties learn that you or your organization has released new information.

GBSN RESEARCH may help connect Members who supply services (data sellers) with Members who are looking for services (data buyers).

Key Terms
4. Disclaimer and Limit of Liability
4.1 No Warranty
This is our legal disclaimer for the quality, safety, and reliability of our Services.


4.2 Exclusion of Liability
These are the limits of legal liability we may have to you.



4.3 Basis of the Bargain; Exclusions
The limitations of liability set forth in this Section 4 are part of the bargain between you and GBSN RESEARCH and shall apply to all claims of liability (e.g., warranty, tort, negligence, contract, and law), even if GBSN RESEARCH or its affiliates has been advised of the possibility of such damage, and even if these remedies fail their essential purpose.

These limitations of liability do not apply to liability for death or personal injury, or for fraud, gross negligence, or intentional misconduct, or in cases of negligence where a material obligation has been breached, a material obligation being one on which you may reasonably rely, but only to the extent that the damages were directly caused by the breach and were foreseeable at the time this Contract was signed.

5. Termination
We can both terminate this Contract, but some rights and responsibilities remain.

Both you and GBSN RESEARCH may terminate this Contract at any time by providing the other with written notice. You will no longer be able to access or use the Services after the agreement is terminated. The following provisions will survive termination:

Any amounts owing by either party prior to termination remain unpaid.

6. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
In the unlikely event we end up in a legal dispute, you and GBSN RESEARCH agree to resolve it in Portuguese courts using Portuguese law.

This section does not deprive you of any mandatory consumer protections under the law of the country where you have your permanent residence, where we direct Services to you.

7. General Terms
Here are some important details about the Contract.

If a court having jurisdiction over this Contract rules that any portion of it is unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should amend the terms to make that part enforceable while still carrying out the Contract’s intent. If the court is unable to do so, you and we agree to seek the court to strike that unenforceable provision while continuing enforcing the remainder of this Contract.

This Contract (including any additional terms given by us when you use a feature of the Services) is the exclusive agreement between us about the Services and supersedes all earlier agreements for the Services.

If we do not take action to enforce a breach of this Contract, it does not indicate that GBSN RESEARCH has relinquished its right to do so. Without our consent, you may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your membership or use of the Services). You acknowledge, however, that GBSN RESEARCH may assign this Contract without your consent to its affiliates or a party that purchases it. This Contract has no third-party beneficiaries.
