Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Copyright Policy

Terms of Use

March 1st, 2015

This terms of use agreement (the "Agreement") governs your use of the collection of digital content (the "Collections") available through TREVENTUS’s digital library system “NainuwaTM”. When accessing NainuwaTM, you will be presented with the terms of use agreement. Please do not use NainuwaTM, if you do not agree to these terms.

Access to NainuwaTM’s Collections is free and is granted for demonstration purposes only. TREVENTUS, at its sole discretion, may provide you with a password to access certain Collections, provided that you complete any required application process and provide accurate information in your application. You may use your password only to access the Collections in ways consistent with this Agreement — no other access to or use of the NainuwaTM Site, its Collections, or TREVENTUS’s services is authorized. You agree not to interfere with the work of other users or TREVENTUS personnel, servers, or resources. Further, you agree not to recirculate your password to other people or organizations. Please report any unauthorized use of your password promptly to office@treventus.com. You acknowledge that you have read and understood TREVENTUS’s Privacy Policy and agree that TREVENTUS may collect, use, and distribute information pursuant to that policy.

TREVENTUS endeavoured to ensure that NainuwaTM contains only copyright-free material. Despite immense efforts, some of the content available through NainuwaTM may be governed by local, national, and/or international laws and regulations, and your use of such content is solely at your own risk. You agree to abide by all applicable laws and regulations, including intellectual property laws, in connection with your use of NainuwaTM. In particular, you certify that your use of any part of NainuwaTM’s Collections will be limited to noninfringing or fair use under copyright law. If a Creative Commons or other license has been declared for particular material on NainuwaTM, to the extent you trust the declaration and declarer (which is rarely TREVENTUS), you may use the content according to the terms and conditions of the applicable license. In using the NainuwaTM site, Collections, and/or services, you further agree (a) not to violate anyone's rights of privacy, (b) not to act in any way that might give rise to civil or criminal liability, (c) not to use or attempt to use another person's password, (d) not to collect or store personal data about anyone, (e) not to infringe any copyright, trademark, patent, or other proprietary rights of any person, (f) not to transmit or facilitate the transmission of unsolicited email ("spam"), (g) not to harass, threaten, or otherwise annoy anyone, and (h) not to act in any way that might be harmful to minors, including, without limitation, transmitting or facilitating the transmission of child pornography, which is prohibited by federal law and may be reported to the authorities should it be discovered by TREVENTUS.

You agree that we may contact you from time to time with surveys or other questions regarding your opinions about and uses of NainuwaTM, as well as with information we believe may be of interest to you. We encourage you to respond to these surveys because we value your input, which will assist us in improving NainuwaTM.

While we collect publicly available Internet documents, sometimes authors and publishers express a desire for their documents not to be included in the Collections. If the author or publisher of some part of NainuwaTM does not want his or her work in our Collections, then we may remove that portion of the Collections without notice.

TREVENTUS may immediately terminate this Agreement at its sole discretion at any time upon written notice (including via email) to you. Upon termination, you agree that TREVENTUS may immediately deactivate any password it has issued to you and bar you from accessing the Collections or the Site.

TREVENTUS may modify this Agreement from time to time, and your continued use of the Collections and/or the Site constitutes your acceptance of any and all modifications. TREVENTUS will attempt to notify you of substantial modifications via the email address that you have registered with us, if any.

Because the content of the Collections comes from around the world and from many different sectors, the Collections may contain information that might be deemed offensive, disturbing, pornographic, racist, sexist, bizarre, misleading, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable. TREVENTUS does not endorse or sponsor any content in the Collections, nor does it guarantee or warrant that the content available in the Collections is accurate, complete, noninfringing, or legally accessible in your jurisdiction, and you agree that you are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that may be applicable to the viewing of the content. In addition, the Collections are provided to you on an as-is and as-available basis. You agree that your use of NainuwaTM and its Collections is at your sole risk. You understand and agree that TREVENTUS makes no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, currency, completeness, reliability, or usefulness of the content in the Collections, that the NainuwaTM site or its Collections will meet your requirements, that access to the Collections will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected. We make no warranty of any kind, either express or implied.

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless TREVENTUS and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, damages, costs, and/or actions (including attorneys’ fees) arising from your use of the TREVENTUS services, the NainuwaTM site, or its Collections. You agree that this Agreement is governed by Austrian law and that any suit arising from this Agreement will be brought in Vienna, Austria, and you further agree that on the election and reasonable notice of either party any litigation shall be referred to arbitration pursuant to the Austrian Code of Civil Procedure. In addition, you agree that should any provision in the Agreement be found invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable, that provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Under no circumstances, including, without limitation, negligence, shall TREVENTUS or its parents, affiliates, officers, employees, or agents be responsible for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising from or in connection with the use of or the inability to use the NainuwaTM Site or its Collections, or any content contained on the NainuwaTM Site or in its Collections, or resulting from unauthorized access to the Collections or your transmissions of data, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, use, data, or other intangibles, even if TREVENTUS has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above may not apply to you. This Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and other policies posted on NainuwaTM constitute the full and complete agreement between you and TREVENTUS and are not intended to inure to third-party beneficiaries.

We welcome your input. Please contact us with any comments or questions at office@treventus.com.

Privacy Policy

March 1st, 2015

TREVENTUS is committed to making NainuwaTM’s constantly growing collection of digital content (the "Collections") freely available to customers for purposes of demonstrating the functions of their digital library NainuwaTM. While TREVENTUS endeavors to enforce its Terms of Use and maintain standard computer security, it is important for those who visit the site ("customers") to be aware of the open nature of NainuwaTM.

TREVENTUS may make changes to this policy from time to time and will notify you of such changes by posting an updated date in the Terms, Privacy, and Copyright link at the bottom on the NainuwaTM Web site (the "Site"). Your continued use of NainuwaTM and/or the Collections constitutes your acceptance of any changes to the Privacy Policy concerning, but not limited to, both previously and prospectively collected information.

What personal Information may TREVENTUS have on its Computers and Systems?

Because NainuwaTM uses standard Web logging in its Web servers, our Web server may automatically recognize the domain name of each Visitor, each Visitor’s IP address, what Web page the Visitor requests, and the time of the request, along with a variety of information supplied by the visitor’s browser. See www.microsoft.com and www.mozilla.com for information about the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, and see www.apache.org for details about Web logs.

In addition, TREVENTUS may collect the email addresses and messages of those who communicate with it via email or who enter email addresses in forms.

TREVENTUS may collect personally identifying information when a customer registers for access to the Collections, including the customer’s name, address, telephone number, and email address, and the customer’s proposal for using the Collections.

TREVENTUS may use "cookies" to track Users' activities on the Site and in the Collections. Cookies are small files that a server transfers to the hard drive of someone who visits a site and that the server can access when the person returns to the site.

It is possible that the computers at TREVENTUS could become compromised by others and that the information on TREVENTUS’s computers could be collected and disseminated without the knowledge or consent of TREVENTUS. While TREVENTUS endeavors to block "crackers" from breaking into its machines, TREVENTUS is not responsible or liable for any such unauthorized uses of NainuwaTM or its data.
