REGISTRYOFFICE TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: 22 January 2020
RegistryOffice AS, a Norwegian Limited Company, (“we”, “us”, “our”, “RegistryOffice”) provides this online website available at www.registryoffice.global (the “Portal”). The Portal provides reports and tools related to the RegistryOffice Services (the “Services”) provided to you by RegistryOffice under separate agreement. The RegistryOffice Agreement and any Service Appendices for the Services (the “RegistryOffice Agreement”) are incorporated herein by reference and form part of the following terms and conditions (“Terms”). The Terms govern your access to and use of the Portal and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and RegistryOffice.
You acknowledge and agree that by accessing or using the Portal you agree to these Terms. Furthermore, by accessing or using the Portal you are indicating that you have the legal capacity to agree to these Terms and that you understand and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, then you have no right to access or use the Portal and you should instead leave our website.
If you are accessing the Portal on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to you and that company or other legal entity.
1.1 You are required to sign a contract in order to use the Portal. You agree that all information provided by you is accurate, complete and up-to-date and that you will inform RegistryOffice of any material changes for so long as you access or use the Portal. RegistryOffice reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account and your right to use the Portal if any information provided during the contract process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. Other than as permitted by these Terms, you may not use the account(s) of others, or allow others to use your account, and you are responsible for preventing such unauthorised use.
1.2 You agree that we rely on your log in credentials to confirm whether users accessing or using the Portal are authorised to do so. If a user accesses the Portal using account credentials that were issued to you, we will rely on that and will assume that you personally are accessing the Portal. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Portal or use of the Portal by persons using your credentials. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your credentials are being used without authorisation.
2.1 The Portal is provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either express or implied. Without limiting the foregoing and to the extent permissible by applicable law, RegistryOffice expressly disclaims all warranties, express or implied, regarding the Portal, including any implied warranty of quality, availability, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quiet enjoyment or non-infringement, and any warranties arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade. You hereby agree to release RegistryOffice from any and all damages or claims in any way connected with the Portal. RegistryOffice makes no warranty that the Portal will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from RegistryOffice or through the Portal, will create any warranty not expressly made herein.
2.2 These Terms do not create any partnership, employment, agency or other relationship between the parties.
3.1 RegistryOffice reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Portal or to modify these Terms, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Portal or provide you with notice of the modification. By continuing to access or use the Portal after we have posted a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Portal.
4. Intellectual Property
4.1 You acknowledge and agree that all copyright, trademarks, database rights and all other intellectual property rights in all material or content supplied as part of the Portal shall remain at all times vested in us or our licensors. You are permitted to use this material only as expressly authorised by us or our licensors and in connection with your use of the Portal.
