Terms & Conditions

Welcome to ISVWorld.com.

We apologize for asking you to read and accept the terms and conditions below. However, please do read these terms carefully before accepting them. By continuing to use the site you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

Acceptance of Terms

When you check the box "I have read and agree with the ISVWorld terms and conditions of use" you agree to be bound by these terms. If you do not agree to all of the terms in the agreement, please close the website in your browser. These terms may be updated from time to time. If you continue to use the product (as defined in paragraph 2) thereafter, your continued usage and/or participation constitutes acceptance of the changes and an agreement to be bound by the new terms, as amended. If you do not agree to the changes, you agree to discontinue your use of the product. You can always review the most current version of this agreement at any time at: http://www.isvworld.com/about/terms-and-conditions.

ISVWorld.com (the "Site") is operated by ISVWorld BV ("ISVWorld" or "we" or "our"). Subject to and without limiting the terms of your obligations under any legally binding contract pertaining to the subject matter hereof ("Contract") between ISVWorld and you (“subscriber”) or between ISVWorld and your employer or a party for whom you perform services ("you and the party to any such Contract being a "Client"), by using this Site you agree to each of the terms of use set forth herein, including any additional terms and conditions applicable to specific areas or content on the Site ("Terms and conditions of use").

ISVWorld reserves the right to modify these “terms and conditions of use” at any time without explicit notice to you until your next login. Your continued use of the Site after any such changes constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by these “terms and conditions of use” as modified.

Subscription Terms and Fees

A new subscription will become effective immediately upon completion of the online order form, reception of the subscription payment and agreement to our Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy. Payments for the first contract will be calculated starting from the first day of the month following receipt of the order form and will be effectively for twelve months as of that date. Subsequent renewals will all be invoiced 1 month prior to the (next) year that the invoice covers. Any negotiated discounts apply to the first year subscription only.

The subscription and this agreement will remain in effect thereafter for successive years so long as annual subscription fees are paid. Either party may terminate this agreement by at least 60 days written notice prior to the next renewal date to the other party. Termination will then be effective on the next renewal date.

The annual fees for this subscription will vary by type of subscription, number of named users and type of services. We will always publish a current Subscription Fee Schedule on our website. Fees may be raised or lowered annually (and are applicable to the next renewal term) by the published inflation rate in the Netherlands + 2%. Increases of fees beyond that will require written notice from ISVWorld to the subscriber, given at least three months before the renewal date.

Subscription renewals must be paid on or before the renewal date or we reserve the right to suspend our services to you until the amounts are paid in full. As a result the subscription and user accounts will be blocked until all amounts are paid in full. If any charges are not received from you by the due date, then at our discretion such charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.

The subscriber shall be responsible for all costs associated with establishing access to the ISVWorld database, including but not limited to any telecommunications or other charges imposed by carriers, proprietary network operators and Internet access providers, or licenses for browser software, if any. The Subscriber shall also be responsible for all costs associated with printing from the database, and for any taxes relating to the Subscriber's or authorized Users' use of the database. ISVWorld reserves the right to add customer names to their customer list, but will always request explicit approval from a customer if it likes to use a customer as a reference or in connection with additional materials or information.

Third Party

The Subscriber is not permitted to provide a third party with any of the ISVWorld Content unless:

  • Such third party is a company operating marketing and lead generation campaigns; and
  • Such third party has entered into a marketing services processor agreement with ISVWorld, available here; and
  • Such Content is solely used by such third party for marketing and lead generation campaigns on behalf of the Subscriber’s organization; and
  • No more Content is provided than is strictly necessary for that purpose; and
  • Such third party shall enter into an effective and enforceable agreement with the Subscriber that, inter alia, shall contain the obligation of such third party to:
    1. a. Solely use the Content provided for marketing and lead generation campaigns on behalf of the Subscriber’s organization; and
    2. b. Disclose the Content no further than is necessary for such purpose; and
    3. c. Immediately delete all Content in as far such Content is not necessary or not necessary anymore for marketing and lead generation campaigns on behalf of the Subscriber’s organization and/or upon termination of the agreement under which such marketing is performed; and/or upon termination of the agreement between ISVWorld and Subscriber; and
    4. d. Keep the Content secret and use all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to the Content.

In the event of a breach of any of the obligations in the preceding provision by Subscriber and/or in the event of a breach of the obligations sub a up to and including d by such marketing company (regardless whether or not any enforceable agreement between the Subscriber and such marketing company exists), the Subscriber shall, by virtue of law, without any action being required, forfeit to ISVWorld an immediately payable penalty in the amount of EUR 10,000.-- for each breach and EUR 2,000.— for each day a breach isn’t cured, all without prejudice to ISVWorld’s other rights, including its right to claim compensation of its actual damages and to claim compliance in any way with the obligations concerned.

ISVWorld might add content to the Content designed solely to enable ISVWorld to control the permitted use of the Content. Unless and in as far the Subscriber shall prove otherwise, any unpermitted use of such content shall constitute full prove of unpermitted use of all Content.

Access to the Database

Access to the ISVWorld database shall be controlled by ISVWorld through the use of username/password combinations for named users, is strictly named users only and will be controlled a/o through IP addresses. The Subscriber shall be responsible for verifying the status of named users and updating access lists when necessary. The main subscriber and other named users in the organization he or she represents shall always cooperate with ISVWorld in the enforcement of existing security procedures and the implementation of additional security procedures as they are developed. ISVWorld works with named users, not with concurrent users. Hence, each User License enables access to the product by 1 (one) named user representing a single client user. If a named user had to be removed from the access list he can be replaced by a new user, but he can never be added back in.

Suspension or Termination of Access

In the event of a material breach of this Agreement by the Subscriber and this breach is not repaired within the 30-days notice by ISVWorld that such breach has occurred, the Subscriber shall immediately cease using the product and the contract shall be terminated.

Returns Policy

Due to the nature of the products, refunds cannot be granted.

Scope of Subscription License

The subscription includes authorized access for authorized named users by means of username/password combinations. Authorized named users must be employees, faculty, staff, consultants or students officially affiliated with the subscriber, or authorized clients of the subscriber’s facilities.
An authorized named user may not make ISVWorld available to anyone other than another authorized named user, whether by permitting access through his or her terminal or computer, or by other similar or dissimilar means or arrangements.

All authorized named users are solely responsible for all security, and all use (including unauthorized use) of ISVWorld provided to its username/password combination, and will undertake reasonable and appropriate methods to enforce the terms of access. Enforcement must not violate the privacy and confidentiality of other authorized users.

ISVWorld encourages its clients to use its data and market intelligence for internal information and communications purposes. The use of graphics and the quotation of individual sentences and paragraphs in your company's internal documents and communications does not require permission from ISVWorld, but it must provide the following attribution, "Source: ISVWorld".

We encourage our users to maximize their commercial benefits of ISVWorld, but unless explicitly agreed in writing, the Subscriber or users may not utilize the ISVWorld database for commercial purposes such as reselling or (re-) publishing of data or information. This is not limited to the sale of materials, fee-for-service use of the database, or bulk reproduction or (re-) distribution of materials in any form; nor may the Subscriber impose special charges on other authorized users for use of the database.

The Subscriber shall use reasonable efforts to protect the database from any use that is not permitted under this Agreement, and shall notify ISVWorld of any such use of which it learns or is notified. In the event of a violation, the Subscriber agrees to consider the imposition of further restrictions on access to the database. The Subscriber understands that Internet browser software is required to access the ISVWorld database. Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 5+ and Chrome 11+ are the supported browsers.
