2. Privacy Policy and Registration

All information received by us from your use of Catalyzt will be used by Cartezia in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

On registration, you must provide Cartezia with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to update and maintain changes to that information on the applicable Catalyzt registration pages. This is particularly important if you subscribe to receive any Paid For Services. Cartezia is entitled to rely on any information you provide to us.

Each registration is for a single user only. On registration, you will choose a user name and password ("ID"). Cartezia does not permit any other person sharing your ID or access through a single ID being made available to multiple users on a network. Cartezia may cancel or suspend your access to Catalyzt if you do this without further obligation to you.

You are responsible for all use of Catalyzt made by you or anyone else using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify Cartezia immediately by e-mailing us at info@cartezia.com. We recommend that you do not select an obvious user password (such as your name) and that you change it regularly.

If you provide Cartezia with an email address that will result in any messages Cartezia may send you being sent to you via a network or device operated or owned by a third party (e.g. your employer or college) then you warrant that you are entitled to receive those messages. You also agree that Cartezia may refrain from sending messages to you without notifying you.

If you register with Catalyzt or if you subscribe to Catalyzt Subscription Service (see Section 9 below) then you may choose to use Catalyzt’s "Remember me" log in feature that enables you to be logged in automatically to Catalyzt whenever you visit without having to manually log in each time. However, we recommend that you do not enable this feature on any computer that is or may be used by anyone other than you in order to prevent unauthorized access by third parties to both your subscription details and features of Catalyzt personal to you.

3. Discussion Forums

Catalyzt includes discussion forums and blogs that allow interaction between users and between users and Catalyzt Authors ("Forums"). While Catalyzt does not control the information/materials posted to Forums by users (the "Messages"), it reserves the right (which it may exercise at its sole discretion without notice) to delete, move or edit the Messages and to terminate your access to and use of the Forums and you waive any moral rights that you may have in regard to the Messages.

You must comply with any rules posted by Catalyzt on a Forum. You may not:

  • post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages containing any form of advertising or promotion for goods and services or any chain Messages or "spam";
  • post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages with recommendations to buy or refrain from buying a particular security or which contain confidential information of another party or which otherwise have the purpose of affecting the price or value of any security;
  • post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages that are unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, indecent, infringe copyright or other rights of third parties or which contain any other form of illegal content;
  • disguise the origin of any Messages;
  • impersonate any person or entity (including Cartezia employees or Forum guests or hosts) or misrepresent any affiliation with any person or entity;

  • restrict or inhibit any other user from using the Forums.

You are solely responsible for the content of your Messages. By submitting messages to any Forum you agree to indemnify Cartezia from all claims, costs and expenses (including legal expenses) arising out of any Messages posted or published by you that are in breach of this Section 3.

The Forums contain Messages submitted by users over whom Cartezia has no control. Cartezia cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any Messages. Some users may breach these terms and conditions and post Messages that are misleading, untrue or offensive. You must bear all risk associated with your use of the Forums and should not rely on Messages in making (or refraining from making) any specific investment or other decisions.

Catalyzt Authors (who will be clearly identified as such) will also contribute material to the Forums in order to stimulate discussions and ensure the smooth running of the Forums. The Forums may also contain messages from special guests selected by Catalyzt. The opinions of those Catalyzt authors and special guests are their own and are not necessarily endorsed by Cartezia. They should not be considered by you as professional advisers.

By submitting Messages to any Forums you are granting Cartezia a worldwide perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to reproduce, modify, translate, make available, distribute and sub-license the Message in whole or in part and in any form or media. This may include personal information such as your user name and alias and your expressions of opinion. Cartezia reserves the right to contact you by e-mail with regard to your use of the Forums.

It is not possible for Cartezia to fully and effectively monitor when Messages may infringe the copyright of a third party or other third party rights.

If you believe that a Message infringes any legal rights that you may have, you should notify Cartezia immediately with specific details by contacting us at info@cartezia.com.
