Unless otherwise stated, the content provided through the Services, including on the Site and the Platform, is for information purposes only.

4. Intellectual Property
All content made available through the Services (including text, reports, graphics, videos, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads, data compilations, and software, as well as the design selection and compilation of that content into one, coherent website) is the property of Coalition or its licensors and protected by international copyright laws and treaties. Reproduction of the content of any of the Services without the written permission of Coalition is prohibited.

Coalition does not warrant or represent that your use of materials from its Services will not infringe on the property rights of third parties.

Using our Services does not confer upon you any ownership interest in any aspect of the Services or the content you access (other than your User Content, as defined below), which shall remain with us and our respective licensors. Any unauthorised use is in violation of these Terms and automatically terminates the licence granted by Coalition for your use of the Services and may also violate applicable laws.

You hereby represent and warrant that the information you provide to Coalition upon registration (including information provided through any other third-party Linked Accounts (e.g., Google, [insert]), as defined in Section 10 below), and at all other times, will be true, accurate, current, and complete.
If you are issued an account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account user ID and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account user ID or password. Unauthorised access or use of such portions of the Services that require an account user ID and password is prohibited. You agree that you will notify Coalition immediately if you believe that a third-party has obtained your user ID or password, or if you believe that any unauthorised access or use may occur or has occurred by contacting our Support team, available at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Coalition is solely responsible for the Platform, including all Services provided via the Platform (other than those provided under Clause 14 in relation to Insurance which are performed solely by Coalition Risk Solution Ltd) . If you download a mobile version of the Platform via the App Store or Google Play, Apple Inc. or Google, Inc., respectively, those providers shall be a third-party beneficiary to these Terms. You acknowledge and agree that your access to the Platform using these third-party applications also shall be subject to the usage terms set forth in the applicable third-party beneficiary’s terms of service. You will comply with all applicable restrictions, requirements, and rules that govern applications downloaded through the application store through which you obtained the Platform (for example, the App Store or Google Play). You acknowledge that Apple Inc. and Google, Inc. have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Platform.

Certain software code that may be incorporated into or distributed with the Platform or otherwise with the Services may be licensed by third-parties under various “open-source” or “public-source” software licences (collectively, the “Open Source Software”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, the Open Source Software is not licensed under these Terms and instead is separately licensed pursuant to the terms and conditions of their respective open-source software licences. You agree to comply with the terms and conditions of such open-source software licence agreements.
10. Linked Accounts and Third-Party Websites
A. Linked Accounts
Coalition may, now or in the future, allow you to link your account on the Platform to your account(s) on third-party services, such as social networking sites ("Linked Accounts"). If you link your account on the Platform to a Linked Account, you are authorising Coalition to store and use your access credentials to access your Linked Account on your behalf as your agent to integrate your experience with the Platform with content, information, and features available through such Linked Account. This may include importing the contacts, preferences, interests, or "likes" of the Linked Account, and/or pushing updates regarding your use of the Services out to your Linked Accounts.
B. Linking to the Platform or the Site
Upon linking to the Platform or Site pursuant to the Terms, you will be granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free licence to use Coalition’s name solely for providing an underlined, textual link from your website to Coalition’s Platform or Site. Without specific, written consent from Coalition, you are not permitted to link to an internal or subsidiary page of the Site or Platform that is located one or several pages down from the Home Page (“deep link”), or bring up present content of the Site within another website (“frame”). Linking, accessing, or using a third-party service through the Platform in this manner may be subject to additional terms established by the applicable third-party, and it is your sole responsibility to comply with such third-party terms.
C. Links from the Platform or the Site to Third-Party Websites
The Platform or Site may contain links to third-party websites, applications, advertisers, services, special offers, or other events or activities (“Third-Party Service”) that are not owned or controlled by us. These Third-Party Services are provided "AS IS" and are governed by their own terms of service and privacy policies as set forth by the third-parties that provide them. In most cases, Coalition is not affiliated with those Third-Party Services, does not endorse them, has no control over them, and assumes no responsibility and/or liability for the content, privacy policies, or practises of any Third-Party Service. In addition, we will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any Third-Party Service.
11. Web Scan
Users of our Site may utilise Coalition’s free automated service to scan and monitor devices and domains which they specify (“Web Scans”). These Web Scans are conducted to ascertain the compliance of network devices and applications with certain published security standards and to disclose potential security vulnerabilities that may be present. Security audits may be performed with the assistance of Coalition employees or its appointed contractors and may from time to time include additional probing and validation beyond the scope of Coalition’s automated scanning system. In certain cases, the exploitation of a vulnerability and/or minimal extraction of data from the target server may be conducted to support Coalition’s security audit findings, or to illustrate a vulnerability to you. Security audits typically include, but are not limited to, port scanning and port connections, evaluating services by checking versions and responses to certain requests, and crawling websites to perform testing of forms, application responses, or to confirm the existence of certain files.
The reports generated from the Web Scans are meant to be taken as preliminary and indicative only, and should not be used as a substitute for a comprehensive security audit. They are based on limited information gathered using the methodology described above, and we do not guarantee that these reports will be fully accurate, complete, or suitable for your purposes. Further limitations are set out in the paragraph titled “Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability” below.
By utilising the service, you certify that you are authorised to act on behalf of the owner or licensee of, or are the authorised representative of an individual, business, or other legal entity having contractual usage rights granted by an ISP or Web Host owning or licensed to use, any and all Internet Protocol addresses (the “IPs”) and the associated computer hardware, network, storage, input/output or electronic control devices, or software installed on such devices (the “Devices”) to which you direct the Web Scans to be performed.
12. User Content
