Shareholder Exchange Terms of Service

ICCR maintains a proprietary collaborative platform that extensively documents shareholder engagement actions on environmental, social and governance issues (the "Exchange").  ICCR members actively suggest examples of shareholder advocacy actions to include on the Exchange, which is not always public information.  Access to the Exchange is personal to each member that is expressly given login credentials to the Exchange by ICCR, and may not be shared with third parties without express written permission from ICCR.

ICCR grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license (the “License”) to use and access the Exchange and all information, services and resources contained therein, in accordance with the terms and conditions of your Membership Agreement, for the limited purposes of shareholder engagement and advocacy, including but not limited to measuring the impact of and assessing gaps in such advocacy and informing your investment decisions, all in furtherance of ICCR’s mission to build a more just and sustainable world by integrating social values into corporate and investor actions.

The Exchange is proprietary to ICCR.  Access to the Exchange does not transfer ownership of the Exchange or its contents.  You acknowledge that the Exchange and its contents are intended for use by ICCR members in furtherance of ICCR’s mission.  You agree not to disclose the Exchange’s contents or any information contained therein to the public or external third parties, except for the limited purposes of shareholder engagement and advocacy.

The License does not include the right to sell or make commercial use of the Exchange or its contents, or to make any derivative use of the Exchange or its contents.  You shall not download or copy the Exchange or its contents for the benefit of a third party, or use any data mining, robots, spiders, scrapers, or other data gathering and extraction tools to access, download, or copy the Exchange or its contents.  You shall not use, redistribute or transfer content contained in the Exchange for any commercial purpose, including but not limited to the republication or sale of information, services, or resources contained therein.  For the purposes of this Agreement, “commercial purpose” does not include informing investment decisions or making investments.

You agree not to use the Exchange in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Exchange or ICCR’s platform, computer systems or networks.

You shall not use the Exchange or its contents for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Membership Agreement.

You agree that any use of the Exchange or its contents in violation of the License, its terms and conditions, the Membership Agreement, or the norms and mission of ICCR, constitutes a breach of the Membership Agreement and is grounds for termination of membership.

Except where expressly provided otherwise, the Exchange, and all content provided on or through the Exchange and/or through hyperlinks found through the Exchange, are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis.  ICCR expressly disclaims all warranties or representation of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement with respect to the site and all content provided on or through the Exchange.  ICCR makes no warranty that: (a) the Exchange will be available on an uninterrupted, secure, error-free basis or that defects on and to the Exchange will be corrected, (b) the Exchange or content will meet your requirements or expectations; (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Exchange or any content provided on or through the Exchange will be accurate or reliable.  The Exchange could contain typographical errors, technical inaccuracies or other incorrect information.  Any content accessed, downloaded or otherwise obtained on or through the use of the Exchange is used at your own discretion and risk. 

In no event shall ICCR nor its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, licensors and/or other third parties mentioned on the Exchange be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive, consequential or other damages, or damages for business interruption, loss of profits, revenue, data or data use, incurred by you or any third party, or any other intangible losses, whether in an action in contract or tort, arising from your access to, or use of, the Exchange or any content provided on or through the Exchange or related services, content or information contained within the Exchange, and/or any hyperlinked website.  This limitation applies (a) whether the alleged claims or damages are based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory and (b) regardless of whether or not ICCR has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
