You acknowledge that, by using INGENIARIUS Communication Features, you may be exposed to messages, information, data, text, software, graphic files, or other materials, whether in written, verbal, electronic, digital, machine-readable or other form (“User Content”) that you might find objectionable.
INGENIARIUS DOES NOT TOTALLY CONTROL USER CONTENT AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE ITS ACCURACY, INTEGRITY OR QUALITY. You understand that any User Content shared through the Auction House or appearing on INGENIARIUS Communication Features is the sole responsibility of those persons transmitting such User Content. This means that you, and not INGENIARIUS, are entirely responsible for all User Content that you transmit. Under no circumstances will INGENIARIUS be liable for any errors or omissions in any User Content or for any loss or damages of any kind incurred as a result of the access to, downloading, viewing, use of or inability to use any User Content sent through or appearing on any INGENIARIUS Communication Features.
INGENIARIUS has no obligation to monitor or supervise INGENIARIUS Communication Features and/or User Content, and expressly disclaims any representation that we will monitor or supervise such features and/or User Content. However, we expressly reserve the right, but not the obligation, in our sole discretion, to monitor, edit, block or remove any User Content, in whole or in part, sent through or appearing on any INGENIARIUS Communication Feature and you have no expectation of privacy in any content in any of the INGENIARIUS Communication Features. Without limiting the foregoing, INGENIARIUS and its designees shall have the right to block or remove, in whole or in part, any User Content that is in violation of this Terms of Service, is illegal, infringing or otherwise offensive or objectionable.

As long as you comply with this Terms of Service, and it has not been terminated, INGENIARIUS grants you a personal, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to enter, use, perform and display INGENIARIUS CLOUD and its contents. An exception is made to all the data retrieved using any INGENIARIUS device installed in the user account (“INGENIUM”).

You represent that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age and are either accepting this Terms of Service on behalf of yourself or on behalf of your minor child. You may not transfer, sell, or share your Account with anyone, unless you are a parent or guardian, in which case you may permit your minor child to use the Account. You are liable for all activities conducted through the Account.
4. Establishing an Account and Access to INGENIARIUS CLOUD
INGENIARIUS CLOUD is an online could platform that must be used over the Internet on any browser, and you are wholly responsible for acquiring and paying for your own Internet access along with all necessary equipment, servicing, repair or correction incurred in maintaining the use of INGENIARIUS CLOUD and related services.
An INGENIARIUS account (“Account”) is required to access all INGENIARIUS CLOUD features, including INGENIARIUS Communications Features and INGENIUM applications. To create an Account, you must provide the typical information: your name, date of birth, mailing address, valid email address and password. You must provide truthful and accurate information. As your name can be seen by others using INGENIARIUS Communications Features, if INGENIARIUS finds your name to be offensive or improper, it may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change or ask you to change your name, block such user registration, remove the name from all aspects of INGENIARIUS CLOUD, and/or suspend or terminate your Account. In particular, you may not use the name of another person, or a name which infringes a third-party’s trademark, copyright, or other proprietary right. You may not use a name which may mislead others to believe you to be an agent of INGENIARIUS, or which INGENIARIUS deems at its sole discretion to be vulgar or otherwise offensive.
Besides the information stated above, you will need an INGENIARIUS KEY to conclude the process and validate the registration. Each INGENIUM is associated to one or more INGENIARIUS KEY(s). Meaning that only if you have access to an INGENIUM and associated INGENIARIUS KEY you may access INGENIARIUS CLOUD. Each INGENIARIUS KEY has the same properties of a one-time password (OTP), being valid for a single login registration or INGENIUM installation.
After registration, and to access INGENIARIUS CLOUD, you will be required to provide your login ID (your verifiable email address) and password (collectively referred to as “Login Information”). You may not share the Account or the Login Information with anyone other than as expressly set forth herein. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Login Information, and you will be responsible for all uses of the Login Information, whether or not authorized by you. In the event that you become aware of, or reasonably suspect of any breach of security, including, without limitation, any loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of the Login Information, you must immediately notify INGENIARIUS by emailing to us. You are solely responsible for all activity on your Account. You should not reveal your Account password to others. INGENIARIUS will not ask you to reveal your password.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU SHALL HAVE NO PROPERTY INTEREST IN THE ACCOUNT, AND YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ALL RIGHTS IN AND TO THE ACCOUNT ARE AND SHALL FOREVER BE OWNED BY AND INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF INGENIARIUS. INGENIARIUS does not recognize the transfer of Accounts incorporated into or part of INGENIARIUS CLOUD, including, without limitation, any items (except INGENIUM data), in-cloud currency (“NUMMUS”), or any other content or information therein (“Non-User Content”). You may not purchase, sell, gift or trade any Account or any Non-User Content incorporated into or part of INGENIARIUS CLOUD, and any such attempt shall be unacceptable. The only trading mechanism accepted by INGENIARIUS is the in-cloud Auction House, using the appropriate features provided by INGENIARIUS CLOUD.
5. Paid Services
You may need to pay fees to access and acquire licenses to use certain items, gain access to certain INGENIUM features or participate in certain activities. You must have an Account and pay applicable fees by using in-cloud currency NUMMUS to benefit from such features.
In order to obtain NUMMI (plural for NUMMUS), you may be required to provide us or a third-party payment service provider designated by INGENIARIUS with your credit card information and other information related to any type of payment and transaction. If your use of INGENIARIUS’s service, purchase or subscription is subject to use or sales tax or fees charged by third-party service providers, INGENIARIUS or the third-party payment service provider may charge for any such taxes and fees. As the account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes and all purchases made via your Account.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART.
Certain items have an expiration date, while others have no expiration date. Each item that you acquire will be included in your Account, until the date when the service ends.
INGENIARIUS reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may terminate your Account but INGENIARIUS will not refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before your termination of your Account and INGENIARIUS will not prorate fees for any subscription or items, which has not been expired before the termination.
REGARDLESS OF THE CONSIDERATION OFFERED OR PAID IN EXCHANGE FOR ITEMS, YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN THE ITEMS. YOU, HOWEVER, CAN BENEFIT FROM THESE ITEMS AT WILL.

7. Equitable Remedy
8. Dispute Resolution and Governing Law
If a dispute arises between you and INGENIARIUS, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and INGENIARIUS agree to resolve any claim or controversy at law or in equity that arises from or relates to this Legal Agreement or our service (a “Claim”) in accordance with one of the subsections below.
8.1. The Legal Agreement and the relationship between you and INGENIARIUS shall be governed, in all respects, by the laws of PORTUGAL.
8.2. You and INGENIARIUS agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in COIMBRA, PORTUGAL, except as provided in subsection 8.3 below regarding optional arbitration. Notwithstanding this, you agree that INGENIARIUS shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
8.3. For any Claim, excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, where the total amount of the award sought is less than ten thousand Euros (€10,000.00), the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the Claim in a cost-effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. A party electing arbitration shall initiate it through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses, unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
8.4. All Claims you bring against INGENIARIUS must be resolved in accordance with this Dispute Resolution Section. All Claims filed or brought contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a Claim contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section, INGENIARIUS may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to one thousand Euros (€1,000.00), provided that INGENIARIUS has notified you, in writing, of the improperly filed Claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the Claim.
9. Force Majeure
INGENIARIUS is not liable for any failure to perform its obligations if such failure results from Acts of Gods (including, but not limited to, fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane or other natural disaster), wars, acts of terror, riots, government sanctions, embargos, accidents, labor disputes, strikes, interruption of or failure to receive materials, energy, electricity or Internet service, or any other thing beyond INGENIARIUS’s reasonable control.
This EULA constitutes and contains the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior oral or written agreements, provided, however, that this EULA shall coexist with, and shall not supersede, the Terms of Service. To the extent that the provisions of this EULA conflict with the provisions of the Terms of Service, the conflicting provisions in the Terms of Service shall govern. The provisions of Sections 2, and 4-10, shall survive the termination of this EULA for any reason. If any provision of this EULA is found to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be severed and the remainder of this EULA shall be given full force and effect.

When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on INGENIARIUS CLOUD, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure.

9. Other Agreements That Govern Your Use of INGENIARIUS CLOUD
Rules of Conduct - Revision 1.0 (09-10-2014)
The rules of conduct are “ten commandments” that we ask you to follow while on INGENIARIUS CLOUD. Ignorance of these rules does not excuse violation of them. Violations may result in temporary suspensions or permanent destruction of your account. Our employees will use their discretion to interpret if any action warrants moderation, whether it is mentioned here or not.

INGENIUM - Related Content - Revision 1.0 (09-10-2014)

INGENIARIUS wants to foster robust community activities and encourage our users’ efforts to trade datasets that may be used for scientific and professional purposes.
2. Unlimited Rights
INGENIARIUS grants you a personal unlimited right to enter, use, perform and display all INGENIUM-Related Content a given user may have legal access to (e.g., scientific publications, datasets, and others).

For sponsors, the text “Sponsored by” must be clearly displayed for a reasonable duration, to avoid confusion.
4. Auction House Trading
All INGENIUM-Related Content can be traded at INGENIARIUS CLOUD Auction House, providing a source of income of in-cloud currency NUMMUS - NO REAL MONEY IS DIRECTLY USED IN THE AUCTION HOUSE. Only data acquired by a GOLD INGENIUM can be traded at the Auction House. The Auction House rules are as follows:
a) To list an item in the Auction House, this can be made inside the specific INGENIUM application by right-clicking on the data, or directly on the GOLD level option of the INGENIUM slot;
b) Selecting an item will bring up a new window that will allow you to select a price (in NUMMI) and add any other additional information (e.g., scientific paper, preview images and description of the dataset, among others). THE SAME AS USER CONTENT, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE QUALITY AND RELIABILITY OF THE DATA YOU SHARE. Upon selecting a price and listing the item, you will be charged 5% of the listing price. This fee will not be returned under any circumstance, even if the listing is later removed;
c) Once the data is placed in the Auction House, it will be relocated to a new folder called “Your AH [Selling]”, thus being LOCKED unless two things occur: 1) the user cancels the biding, paying an additional NUMMI fee of 10% over the listing price; 2) the biding reaches to an end without any bidder;
d) If the data is successfully sold, it will remain LOCKED and relocated to “Your AH [Sold]”. REMEMBER THAT BY DOING SO YOU SHARE THE SAME RIGHTS OVER THAT INGENIUM-Related Content WITH THE BUYER. Note that LOCKED data can be used normally as any other data with the exception that it cannot be removed from the folder (except deleted), nor placed in the Auction House
e) Once the data is sold, the NUMMI can be collected from the Auction House at any time.
a) To purchase an item in the Auction House, this can only be made on the GOLD level option of the INGENIUM slot;
b) Once an item is selected, you have two options to purchase it. The first is to use “BID” to make an offer on the item. When selected, you have the option to offer the seller any amount of money above the listing price. You will then receive the item if the biding reaches to an end and you were the one offering the higher bid.
c) The second option is to use the “BUY NOW” option to purchase an item immediately. This option is available at all times. Once this is selected, there is only one confirmation screen to confirm that you really wish to purchase the item at the cost of the highest bid made so far, and the transaction will be made. There is a penalty for using this option, however. AN EXTRA 25% OF THE ITEM PRICE WILL BE CHARGED AS A SERVICE FEE WHEN USING THE “BUY NOW” OPTION.
d) Once the data is successfully purchased, it can be collected from the Auction House at any time. REMEMBER THAT BY ACQUIRING DATA YOU SHARE THE SAME RIGHTS OVER THAT INGENIUM-Related Content WITH THE SELLER. The data will go directly to the GOLD INGENIUM you wish. The data will be relocated to “Your AH [Bought]” folder of that specific INGENIUM data. Data can be relocated by you at any time, as any other unlocked data.
