  1. Intellectual property rights
    • The database right, copyright and all possible other intellectual property rights as well as similar rights to protect information relating to MyHolmatro and the related documentation vest exclusively in Holmatro. Nothing in these Conditions of Use serves to transfer all or part of such rights.
    • Holmatro guarantees towards the user that MyHolmatro and the use granted to the User does not infringe intellectual property rights or similar rights held by third parties and that it is fully competent to grant the rights referred to in these Conditions of Use. Holmatro indemnifies the User against losses resulting for the User from an alleged infringement of such third-party rights, subject to the condition that the User notifies Holmatro immediately of such an alleged infringement and, if Holmatro so wishes, leaves the defence against such an allegation entirely to Holmatro and provides all cooperation and information requested in that connection.
    • In case of an infringement or an alleged infringement as referred to in the second paragraph or if there exists in Holmatro’s opinion a considerable chance that such an infringement could occur, Holmatro will have the right to replace or alter MyHolmatro in such a manner that the infringement is ended as a result thereof and that the functional characteristics of MyHolmatro are prejudiced as little as possible. The User will have the right to dissolve this Agreement if an infringement as referred to in the second paragraph is established in a final court order that is enforceable in the country where the User has his place of business and it becomes clear that replacement or modification is not possible without material prejudice to the functional characteristics or the possibilities of use of MyHolmatro.
    • This obligation to indemnify lapses if the alleged infringement is related to (i) materials made available by the User to Holmatro for the purpose of use, modification, processing or incorporation, or (ii) changes made by the User to MyHolmatro or other materials or that the User had third parties do to MyHolmatro or other materials.

  • These Conditions of Use enter into force on the day on which the User consented expressly to these Conditions of Use.
  • The parties have agreed that for as long as MyHolmatro is updated continuously, for example by entering new products or removal of old products, such will constitute a substantial modification of MyHolmatro, which means that a new database right with a new term of 15 years arises each time.
  • Holmatro has the right at all times to remove, alter or suspend the User’s account without notification. Holmatro removes the account in any event if the User violates these Conditions of Use.

When his user account ends, the User will not be entitled to a back-up copy of the data entered by him.

The User will cooperate in the inspection and if so desired provide Holmatro with the necessary information, documents, codes or other information required for the inspection.
