Bilateral Linkages Database

Terms and Conditions

I have read the following terms and conditions

What is a Database User License Agreement ?

This document ("License Agreement") is an important legal document which creates important rights and obligations upon you, as well as APEC. You must carefully read this document.

If you agree with what this document says, and you agree with the rights and obligations upon you set out below, then you will need to click on "I AGREE" below, and you will be taken to either the Key Indicators Database or the Bilateral Linkages Database (both are referred to as "the Database") depending on which database you have selected.

If you do not agree with what this document says, then you should click on "NO THANKS" below.

Is your access to the Database for your own personal purposes, or is your access on behalf of someone else, such as your employer?

If your access to the Database is for your own personal purposes, then if you agree with the terms and conditions set out below, you will be asked to click on "I AGREE" below.

If your access to the Database is on behalf of your employer, and you have authority from your employer to enter into this License Agreement, then if your employer agrees with the terms and conditions set out below, you will be asked to click on "I AGREE" below.

However, if your access to the Database is on behalf of your employer, but you do not have authority to enter into this License Agreement, or you are unsure whether you do, then you must not click on "I AGREE" below, and instead you should arrange for a person with authority to do so instead.

If your access to the Database is on behalf of another person or organisation, then you must not click on "I AGREE" below, and instead you should arrange for an authorised representative of that person or organisation to do so instead.

Who is "you"?

In the remaining terms and conditions:

1. if "I AGREE" is clicked on behalf of an employer or another organisation, "you" means that employer or other organisation, and the person warrants and represents to APEC that the person has authority to enter into the License Agreement, and that doing so does not exceed the person’s express or actual authority to bind the employer or the other organisation, and

2. if "I AGREE" is clicked on your own behalf, "you" means the person that clicks on "I AGREE".

Grant of Licenses

APEC grants to you a non exclusive license to access the Database on one occasion only. If you need to access the Database on further occasions, you will be navigated back to this page and asked to agree to its terms on each occasion.

APEC also grants to you a non exclusive license to use and reproduce the economic indicators ("the Data") that you download from the Database for your own purposes, including reproducing the Data in any analytical reports that you generate, and including other means of representing or communicating the Data, such as in tables, graphs and charts. This license is perpetual, and worldwide, but subject to the further conditions below.

Copyright

APEC does not own the Data, but APEC has licenses in place from the owners of the Data upon terms that enable APEC to grant on-licenses to you, upon the terms of this License Agreement, including the restrictions below.

There are various owners of different parts of the Data including the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development / The World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, United Nations and others.

Things you may do

You may include the Data in your own analytical reports that you generate.

You may save the Data on a computer or other storage device or mechanism.

Things you must not do

While you can reproduce the Data in your own analytical reports that you generate, you must not republish the Data with the Data being of itself the "end product". Any republication of the Data as the "end product" will need a separate license from the original provider of the Data to APEC, without which that owner’s copyright will be infringed by you.

You must not grant sub-licenses to other persons in relation to the Data.

You must not assign this License Agreement to another person. This License Agreement is personal to you.

Termination

If you breach any of the terms of this License Agreement, APEC can terminate this License Agreement by written notice to you.

No liability

APEC makes no warranties whatsoever with respect to the Data or the Database. Specifically, APEC excludes any warranty that the Data or Database are accurate or complete, fit for your purpose, or any purpose, merchantable, or that they are suitable for you or the uses for them that you may have or intend. You release APEC and its employees from any liability or any loss or damage whatsoever to you arising from your use of the Data or the Database. Specifically, you release APEC and its employees from any liability for any financial or consequential loss arising from your use of the Data or the Database.

Governing Law

This License Agreement is made and entered into and subject to the laws of the Republic of Singapore.
