1.1 Upon your entrance into the Subscription Agreement, LDM grants you the right to access the Online Services and Materials on the single computer or mobile device from which you agreed to the terms and conditions of the Subscription Agreement (the “Single Authorized Computer”). Only you, your employees or contractors using the Single Authorized Computer (each, an “Authorized User”) are eligible to access and use the Online Services and Materials. To be clear, each computer or mobile device on which you want to access the Online Services and Materials must be separately licensed by you. Authorized Users are granted a nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable, limited right to access through the Single Authorized Computer and use for research, information, and communication purposes the Online Services and Materials made available to you. The rights granted to each Authorized User are as follows:
(a) The right to electronically display Materials retrieved from the Online Services for the Authorized User's individual use. Under no circumstances may an Authorized User provide access to the Online Services or Materials to a third party, including through the internet, an intranet or other types of networking communication like LANs, WANs or other mobile devices;

5. PURCHASES, INVOICES AND PAYMENTS
5.1 Payment for use of Online Services may be made by immediate, monthly or annual debit against the valid credit card provided by you at the time of registration or thereafter (in which event the extension of credit and payment shall be as defined between you and the credit card issuing bank or finance institution); or by invoice pursuant to LDM's credit policies and conditions as contained in this Section 5.
5.2 Payment for use of Online Services by credit card for monthly and annual service subscriptions will automatically renew and debit your credit card at the beginning of the next monthly or annual period as applicable (typically, the 1st day of the month in the case of monthly subscriptions and January 1 for annual subscriptions) following the initial purchase date, and will continue thereafter at the beginning of each new month (or January 1 for annual subscriptions) until the service is terminated by you, or LDM, pursuant to the Subscription Agreement. Similarly, accounts billed on a periodic basis pursuant to LDM's credit policies will continue to accrue charges monthly and/or annually for subscription services purchased until the service is terminated pursuant to the Subscription Agreement.
5.3 All credit requests are subject to review, and acceptance or rejection by LDM, which decision is final in its sole discretion.
5.4 By purchasing any of the Online Services whether by use of an accepted credit card or pursuant to the issuance of credit by LDM, you agree, warrant and represent the following: (i) any credit information you supply is true and complete; (ii) you are authorized to use the credit card offered for payment; (iii) to pay all amounts accrued to your account, as invoiced, at the rates and prices in effect at the time of the accrual of said charges, together with applicable sales tax or other required fees or surcharges, including but not limited to finance charges unpaid invoices.

6.1 These General Terms and Conditions may be changed from time to time as described below or by written agreement. Charges and payment terms may be changed in accordance with the terms of your Price Schedule; all other provisions of these General Terms and Conditions may be changed by LDM immediately upon notice to you. If any changes are made to these General Terms and Conditions, such changes will: (a) only be applied prospectively; and (b) apply to all similarly situated LDM customers using the Online Services. You may terminate the Subscription Agreement upon written notice to LDM if any change to these General Terms and Conditions is unacceptable to you. For termination to be effective under this Section 6.1, written notice of termination must be provided to LDM within 45 days of the effective date of the change. Continued use of the Online Services following the effective date of any change to these General Terms and Conditions constitutes acceptance of the change but does not affect the foregoing termination right. Except as provided above, the Subscription Agreement may not be supplemented, modified or otherwise revised unless signed by duly authorized representatives of both parties. Furthermore, the Subscription Agreement may not be supplemented, modified or otherwise revised by email exchange even if the email contains a printed name or signature line bearing signature-like font.

6.2 LDM may terminate this Subscription Agreement and your and each Authorized User’s access to the Online Services at any time for convenience upon notice to you. You may terminate the Subscription Agreement at any time in accordance with this Section 6.2. The effective date of termination shall be 10 days after the receipt of written notice of termination, unless a later date is specified in the notice. LDM may suspend or discontinue providing the Online Services without notice and pursue any other legal remedies if you fail to comply with any obligations under these Terms and Conditions or the Subscription Agreement. By way of example only, and not by way of limitation, your failure to pay invoices on a timely basis or a violation of Section 2.1 or 2.3, shall be grounds for LDM to suspend or discontinue providing the Online Services.
6.3 All notices and other communications hereunder shall be in writing or displayed electronically in the Online Services by LDM. Notices shall be deemed to have been properly given on the date deposited in the mail, if mailed; on the date first made available, if displayed in the Online Services; or on the date received, if delivered in any other manner.

6.4 The failure of LDM, or any third party supplier of Materials to enforce any provision hereof shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such provision or of the right to enforce it at a later time.
6.5 Neither you nor any Authorized User may assign your rights or delegate your duties under the Subscription Agreement to access and use the Online Services and Materials without the prior written consent of LDM, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

If you have entered into a fixed price amendment with LDM but LDM is unable to provide you with some of the Materials in your subscription due to your non-cooperation, LDM may restrict your access in order to comply with applicable law but will be under no obligation to reduce your monthly commitment. In the rare case that LDM is unable to provide you with access to any of the Materials available in the Online Services, LDM will terminate the Subscription Agreement and any applicable fixed price amendment without fine or penalty to you. Finally, you also agree that during the term of the Subscription Agreement LDM may perform periodic reviews of your use of regulated data in order to comply with regulatory, data security, privacy and license restrictions, and that the reviews may include, but are not necessarily limited to, asking you to verify your permissible purpose for accessing such data. You agree to cooperate with LDM in any such review and to promptly produce all records and documentation reasonably requested by LDM for this purpose.
6.7 If anyone third party should access or use regulated data in an unauthorized manner (a "Security Event"), then the following provisions will apply: (a) if required by applicable law, you will notify the individuals whose information has potentially been accessed or used that a Security Event has occurred; (b) you will notify any other parties (including but not limited to regulatory entities and credit reporting agencies) as may be required by law; (c) the notification will not reference LDM or the product through which the regulated data was provided, nor will LDM be otherwise identified or referenced in connection with the Security Event, without the express written consent of LDM; (d) you will be solely liable for all claims that may arise from a Security Event caused by someone using the Single Authorized Machine, and you will indemnify LDM for any third party claims directed against LDM that arise from such Security Event; and (e) all such notifications and indemnity claims related to your Security Event will be solely at your expense.
6.8 These Terms & Conditions and the Subscription Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including but not limited to CPLR Section 901, regardless of the law that might otherwise apply under applicable principles of conflicts of law.
6.9 The Subscription Agreement will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If any provision of the Subscription Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable to any extent, then (a) such provision will be interpreted, construed and reformed to the extent reasonably required to render it valid, enforceable and consistent with its original intent and (b) such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of the Subscription Agreement.
6.10 Where applicable, each affiliated company of LDM and each third party supplier of Materials has the right to assert and enforce the provisions of the Subscription Agreement directly on its own behalf as a third party beneficiary.
6.11 The Web Site may contain advertising and sponsorship. Advertisers and sponsors are responsible for ensuring that material submitted for inclusion on this Web Site is accurate and complies with applicable laws. LDM cannot and will not be responsible to you or any Authorized User for the illegality of or any error or inaccuracy in advertisers' or sponsors' materials or for the acts or omissions of advertisers and sponsors.
6.13 The Subscription Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to its subject matter and replaces and supersedes any prior written or verbal communications, representations, proposals or quotations on that subject matter.
