    2. Where Customer is expressly permitted by this Contract to reproduce a Licensed Product or any part thereof, it shall identify CAPA as the source of the information.

  5. Fees
    1. Customer shall pay the Fees in cleared funds in accordance with the payment terms stated in the Order Form. All invoices issued by CAPA for the Fees shall be paid in full within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. CAPA shall have no liability whatsoever if Customer pays the Fees (or any portion thereof) into any bank account other than the bank account specifically designated by CAPA to Customer for payment. In particular, CAPA shall not be liable for any loss, damage, cost, claim or expense suffered or incurred by Customer arising out of or in connection with third party fraud, including, without limitation, false change of bank account communications, identity theft and other scams. Payment of the Fees into CAPA’s designated bank account only shall satisfy Customer’s payment obligations under this Contract. To the extent that Customer receives any communication notifying Customer of a change in CAPA’s designated bank account, CAPA is required to verify the authenticity of the same directly with CAPA.
    2. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy it may have, if CAPA does not receive the Fees into CAPA’s designated bank account in cleared funds by the due date for payment, CAPA shall be entitled to: (i) suspend or terminate access to the Licensed Products, (ii) accelerate payment for future instalments and renewals, and/or (iii) charge interest on such overdue sum from the due date of payment at the annual rate of 4% above the base lending rate from time to time of HSBC Bank Australia Ltd, accruing on a daily basis and being compounded quarterly until payment of the overdue sum is made, whether before or after judgement.

To the extent that a valid certificate is not provided, or to the extent that CAPA is unable to recover the withholding taxes, the amount of the Fees shall be increased by an amount necessary to compensate for the withholding taxes (including, without limitation, any amount necessary to “gross up” for withholding taxes levied on the increase itself).
    4. Except as expressly provided in this Contract, all Fees are non-refundable.

Each username is unique to the Authorised User and may not be shared or transferred with any third party. Each username must be a corporate email address belonging to the Authorised User; generic email address names (such as sales@, info@, etc) will not be accepted. Customer is solely responsible for the security of any passwords issued by CAPA for accessing the Licensed Products. CAPA may cancel or suspend such passwords in the event of a breach of this Contract including, without limitation, if CAPA reasonably believes a login is being used by more than one person or by anyone other than the Authorised User. Customer must notify CAPA immediately of any unauthorised use of any usernames or passwords, or any other breach of security regarding access to the Licensed Products, that comes to Customer’s attention.
    2. New Products, Changes and Discontinuation. CAPA databases and other products are constantly being updated, potentially resulting in changes to the nature of the Licensed Products delivered (including, where required, as a consequence of any applicable laws or regulations). CAPA may replace, update, amend, suspend or discontinue any Licensed Products from time to time without notice. If a Licensed Product is discontinued, CAPA may in its sole discretion either (i) provide Customer with an alternate CAOA product, or (ii) refund a pro rata portion of the Fees due to the discontinuation of the relevant Licensed Product (which pro rata refund is CAPA’s sole liability due to such discontinuation).
    3. Availability. CAPA cannot guarantee that your access to the Licensed Products via any login will operate continuously or without interruption and CAPA does not accept any liability of its temporary unavailability. CAPA will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that all Licensed Products are available to Customer and its Authorised Users during the Term, except for any downtime for scheduled or emergency maintenance which shall be kept to a minimum.
    4. Malware. CAPA does not guarantee that any Licensed Products will be free from infections, viruses, malware and/or other code that has contaminating or destructive properties. Customer is responsible for implementing sufficient procedures, security measures and virus checks to satisfy its particular requirements for its access to and use of the Licensed Products.

Each party acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for its own processing of personal data in connection with this Contract (and, where applicable, the parties agree that each party acts as a data controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679)). Each party shall: (i) only process personal data in compliance with, and shall not cause itself and/or the other party to be in breach of, Data Protection Law, and (ii) act reasonably in providing such information and assistance as the other party may reasonably request to enable the other party to comply with its obligations under Data Protection Law. If either party becomes aware of a Reportable Breach relating to the processing of personal data in connection with this Contract, it shall: (i) provide the other party with reasonable details of such Reportable Breach without undue delay, and (ii) act reasonably in co-operating with the other party in respect of any communications and/or notifications to be issued to any data subjects and/or supervisory authorities in respect of the Reportable Breach.

    2. CAPA will issue a renewal notice and invoice ninety (90) days before the commencement of each Renewal Period which will notify you of the amount of the renewal Fees payable in respect of the Licensed Products.

    4. CAPA may terminate this Contract without liability immediately at any time by written notice to Customer if CAPA is required by any law or instructed by any financial institution to cease trading with certain individuals/entities and/or in certain geographical locations. In the event that CAPA terminates this Contract pursuant to this clause 8.4, any portion of the Fees already paid shall be refunded (where legally permissible) and Customer shall be released from paying any further portion of the Fees.

Subject to clause 10.5, CAPA shall not be liable for any indirect, consequential, special, incidental or punitive loss or damage, loss of actual or anticipated profits or income, loss of business, loss of opportunity, loss of goodwill, loss or corruption of data or any other type of economic loss or damage, whether caused by negligence, intentional act, accident, act of God or otherwise, and (iii) CAPA’s (and any member of the CAPA Group’s) maximum aggregate liability to Customer under this Contract, howsoever arising, shall be limited to the total amount of the Fees paid by Customer.
    2. CAPA agrees to indemnify Customer against all claims, causes of action, judgments, damages, fines or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from a third-party claim that the Customer’s use of the Licensed Product(s) in accordance with the Permitted Use infringes any third party’s intellectual property rights.

    2. Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit any liability which cannot be excluded or limited by law.

The rights and remedies under this Contract are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.
    6. If any provision of this Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision under this clause 11.6 shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Contract.
    7. Unless it is expressly stated otherwise, this Contract does not give rise to any rights for a third party to enforce any term of this Contract.
