We recommend keeping a copy of these Terms of Use and all incorporated terms for reference. They are a legal agreement between you and Onyx and can only be modified with Onyx's consent. We may amend these Terms of Use from time to time. Every time you wish to use the Edge Platform, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.

7. Intellectual Property Rights

The Deliverables, including the reports and strategic data, any information, data or other materials made available to you and all designs, text and graphics on the Edge Platform and the selection or arrangement thereof, along with all software and databases forming part of the Edge Platform and/or provided by Onyx (together, the "Materials") are owned by and are confidential to Onyx or its licensors, and are protected by copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights throughout the world.

You must not reproduce or modify paper or digital copies of any Materials in any way and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequences or any graphics separately from any accompanying text.

All copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights in the Materials are and shall remain vested in Onyx or its licensors, and except as expressly provided or granted to you or the Customer by Onyx pursuant to an MSA or otherwise, you or the Customer will not acquire any right, title or interest in or to the Materials and no such rights are or shall be implied.

More generally, by accessing the Edge Platform, you warrant and represent that you have taken all requisite actions and obtained all necessary third party consents and licences to enable you to: (a) receive the benefit of the Edge Services and (b) fulfil your obligations under the MSA.

Where any of the Materials contain or have affixed to them trade marks, trade names, notices or other proprietary marks of Onyx or its licensors, you may not alter, obscure, remove, interfere with or add to any of the said trade marks, trade names, notices or proprietary markings.

You may use the Materials provided within the context of the Edge Services in accordance with the terms of the MSA. If you wish to use such Materials for other purposes, you may only do so if you have first obtained Onyx's prior written consent (which Onyx may withhold in its absolute discretion). You may be held responsible for any infringement of Onyx's intellectual property rights that arise out of or are connected with your granting any unauthorised user access to Deliverables, the Edge Services or other Materials made available on the Edge Platform.

For all other Materials made available on the Edge Platform, you may view such Materials for your own personal and private use provided that they are not altered or changed in any way and are not used, in whole or in part, in any other publication, in whatever medium. Otherwise, the Materials on the Edge Platform may not be downloaded, printed, stored, copied, reproduced, transmitted or otherwise made available on any network or in any other medium, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of Onyx.

Where the Materials comprise any software, you may not decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any object code of such software, save to the extent expressly permitted by Section 50B of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (Decompilation incidentally or into a higher level language).

 

8. Third Party Content

The Edge Platform may enable or assist you to access the website content of, correspond with, and purchase products and services from, third parties via third-party websites and by doing so, you are acting solely at your own risk. Onyx makes no representation, warranty or commitment and shall have no liability or obligation whatsoever in relation to the content or use of, or correspondence with, any such third-party website, or any transactions completed, and any contract entered into by you, with any such third party. Any contract entered into and any transaction completed via any third-party website is between you and the relevant third party, and not Onyx. We recommend that you refer to the third party's website terms and conditions and privacy policy prior to using the relevant third-party website. Onyx does not endorse or approve any third-party website nor the content of any of the third-party website made available via the Edge Platform.

You are solely responsible for all use of your user name and password to access the Edge Platform, and must ensure they are kept confidential at all times. You may not share the user name and password with or transfer them to any third party, including any other employees of the Customer.

Please notify Onyx immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your login details or any other breach of security regarding access and use of the Edge Platform that becomes known to you.

Access and use of the Edge Platform and the Edge Services are limited to the authorised users and locations as specified in the MSA. You have no independent right to access and use the Edge Platform, and your right to access and use the Edge Platform will cease when your employment with the Customer terminates, or when the Customer terminates its MSA with Onyx. You and the Customer shall be responsible for notifying Onyx of the termination of your employment, and for any unauthorised use of Edge by you after your employment with the Customer ceases.

You must ensure that any remote working or third party software used on your computer systems when accessing the Edge Platform or receiving the Edge Services do not result in a conflict or breach of these Terms of Use. You will be responsible for ensuring that the Edge Platform is compatible with any end-user licence terms that apply to such software.

 

11. Viruses

Onyx does not guarantee that the Edge Platform will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.

You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programs and platform in order to access the Edge Platform. You should use your own virus protection software.

You must not misuse the Edge Platform by knowingly introducing viruses, trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to the Edge Platform, the server on which the Edge Platform is stored or any server, computer or database connected to the Edge Platform. You must not attack the Edge Platform via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack. By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. Onyx will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use the Edge Platform will cease immediately.

  • as a result of any breach by you of these Terms of Use;
  • on expiry or termination of the MSA for any reason;
  • for business or operational reasons; or
  • if, in Onyx’s reasonable opinion you bring Onyx’s reputation into disrepute.

Following termination for any reason you must:

  • promptly destroy or (at Onyx’s direction) return all Materials and/ or Deliverables held in your possession to Onyx; and
  • comply with the post-termination obligations in the MSA.

 

14. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use of use, their subject matter and their formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by the laws of England and Wales. Both parties agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts, except that Onyx may pursue injunctive relief or similar to enforce the provisions of these Terms of Use of use in any appropriate forum.

 

15. General

To the extent that you access and use the Edge Platform, you acknowledge that you are bound by the terms of the MSA which has been entered into by yourself or the Customer.

Any legal notices to Onyx must be sent by first class post (receipt requested) or confirmed by e-mail to the address set out under section 16 below.

Failure by Onyx to enforce a right in these Terms of Use or the MSA does not result in a waiver of such right.

If any provision in these Terms of Use of use is deemed to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the rest of these Terms of Use of use will remain in full force and effect.

These Terms of Use of use, together with the MSA, website terms, privacy notice and cookie policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and Onyx relating to your use of the Edge Platform, and supersede all other or previous agreements and understandings between you and Onyx.
