Terms and Conditions for SpirE-Journal Subscription


This Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use govern your use of SpirE-Journal and unless other terms and conditions expressly govern, any other electronic services from Spire Research and Consulting that may be made available from time to time (each, a “Service”).

By clicking on the “I AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITION” on the sign-up page, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. You are hereby notified that your continued use of a Service is subject to many of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as explained below.

1) SpirE-Journal

You may print or download the articles for your personal, non-commercial use, provided you do not remove or alter any copyright, trademark, or any other proprietary notices. You may not retrieve the data to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection, compilation, database, or directory without written permission from Spire Research and Consulting; nor may you publish any content or its portions online. All other rights are reserved.

2) Subscription

Upon successful subscription of SpirE-Journal, you will receive a confirmation email which requires you to validate your email address. We may cancel your subscription immediately at our reasonable discretion or if you breach any of your obligations under these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to refuse to accept any application for a subscription for any reason.

3) Copyright

a) The text, graphics, images, video, metadata, design, organization, compilation, look and feel, advertising and all other protectable intellectual property (the “Content”) available through the Services are our property and are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. Unless you have our written consent, you may not sell, publish, distribute, retransmit or otherwise provide access to the Content received through the Services to anyone, including, if applicable, your fellow students or employees, with the following exceptions:

(i) You may occasionally distribute a copy of an article, or a portion of an article, from a Service in non-electronic form to a few individuals without charge, provided you include all copyright and other proprietary rights notices in the same form in which the notices appear in the Service, original source attribution, and the phrase “Used with permission from Spire Research and Consulting”, as appropriate. Please consult the Spire Research and Consulting website if you need to distribute an article to a larger number of individuals, on a regular basis or in any other manner not expressly permitted by this Agreement.

(ii) While you may download, store and create an archive of articles from the Service for your personal use, you may not otherwise provide access to such an archive to more than a few individuals on an occasional basis. The foregoing does not apply to any sharing functionality we provide through the Service that expressly allows you to share articles or links to articles with others. In addition, you may not use such an archive to develop or operate an automated trading system or for data or text mining.

b) You agree not to rearrange or modify the Content. You agree not to create abstracts from, scrape or display our content for use on another web site or service. You agree not to post any content from the Services to weblogs, newsgroups, mail lists or electronic bulletin boards, without our written consent.

c) You agree not to use the Services for any unlawful purpose. We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your access to a Service if, in our opinion, your use of the Service may violate any laws, regulations or rulings, infringe upon another person’s rights or violate the terms of this Agreement. Also, we may refuse to grant you an account that impersonates someone else, is protected by trademark or other proprietary right law, or is vulgar or otherwise offensive.
