Terms & Conditions for the Supply of Services: a summary

When you register to use Inngot's services, you will be asked to accept a set of terms and conditions. The main terms can be summarised as follows:

Commencement, term, suspension and termination:
You can cancel at 30 day's notice. Subscriptions are not refundable, but outstanding enquiry credits are. Inngot has certain rights to suspend access to its services, for instance if your registration is found to be untruthful, and can terminate your agreement under certain circumstances, for instance if you defame or infringe another's IP or do not pay sums when due.

Payments and charges:
Inngot may review its charges by giving you prior notice via this website. Some services (principally enquiry credits) expire after 12 months.

Your use of the Services:
You agree not to rely on the information provided by Inngot when entering into any commercial agreement. You must ensure that your registrations are truthful, accurate and up-to-date. If another user questions the veracity or ownership of your IP, you agree to co-operate promptly with Inngot to resolve the issue.

Inngot's obligations:
Inngot seeks to maintain a 24/7 service other than during planned periods of downtime.

Intellectual property:
You agree that Inngot owns the copyright and other IP rights in the Services.

Information disclosure and "Fair Use" policy:
You agree that Inngot may show your contact details to other users when they make enquiries on the database. Inngot will not normally show your identity to companies you search, but will use anonymised information about your enquiries to create insights on search activity generally. You must not "trawl" the entire database, and you must exercise caution over your display settings.

The Terms and Conditions also contain clauses to cover liability, Force Majeure and other standard aspects such as notice provisions, assignments and variations.

Privacy & Security

Inngot takes the privacy and security of its customers and their intellectual property very seriously, and only collects, stores and uses your information for defined purposes. Inngot does not sell your personal information and only shares it with your consent, and as required by law. Please read the sections below to find out more about the measures we take to ensure that sensitive data is appropriately protected.

Data Protection

Inngot is registered as a Data Controller under the Data Protection Act 1998 ("DPA"). You can view all the purposes for which Inngot is registered to use personal information by visiting www.ico.gov.uk

Data collected by Inngot chiefly concerns companies and their innovations, which are not covered by data protection legislation. However Inngot also collects and uses information relating to named contacts within organisations, and private individuals can also register innovations with Inngot. In these cases, DPA legislation may apply.

In the ordinary course of business, an enquiry into an intellectual asset registered on the Inngot database will reveal details of the originating company or individual together with their contact details. This is in accordance with the requirements of most customers, who register with Inngot in order to draw attention to their intellectual property and assert their identity as its originator. However, if you wish any or all of the information to be hidden from third parties - for instance, because your development of the intellectual property is at a sensitive early stage - you have the option to suppress your personal data. This suppressed status will then be applied to all enquiries until you change it, except where Inngot is required to disclose information on its customers as a matter of law.

Apart from data held on subscribers, Inngot may collect several kinds of information from visitors who use the pre-registration, press room and contact facilities hosted on this website. Occasionally Inngot may contact such visitors to survey opinions and to provide updates on its own products and services. If you do not have an account with Inngot and you wish to be removed from such mailings, please e-mail donotmail@inngot.com. We will delete your records from our lists and notify you to confirm that we have done so.

All personal and business information you provide is held securely. Subscribers to Inngot can update personal and business information at any time via the secure logon facilities provided, and for most users this is the most quick and convenient way to check personal data being held on Inngot's systems. However, if at any time you wish to request a copy of any personal data held by Inngot, you can exercise your right to do so by writing to:

Encription & online payment processing

Inngot uses the industry standard security measure of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt data. This functionality is supported by recent versions of all popular web browsers. SSL is used on all pages where sensitive data is required (including all credit/debit card information, e-mail addresses, passwords and other personal data). This measure makes it extremely difficult to read the data you enter in the unlikely event of its wrongful interception.

SSL encryption is based on use of a "key" with two different parts - one private, the other public. Once a secure session is established, your web browser reads the public key provided by Inngot and uses it to encrypt your personal information. After the data has been encoded in this way, it is only readable using the private key, which is held securely by Inngot.

An unbroken key or closed padlock icon will appear in the bottom border of most browsers to indicate that SSL security is in operation. Clicking on the icon will display the digital certificate associated with the secure connection. The digital certificate is intended to confirm the identity of the remote computer to which you are sending your details.

If you are concerned about possible theft or unauthorised viewing of confidential or personal information while you are communicating with the Inngot website, it is recommended that you review the security preference settings of your chosen web browser. Among other facilities, all popular browsers provide facilities for you to receive an alert or notification if a site's identification is invalid, if your browser is about to change between secure and insecure transmissions, or if you attempt to send a transmission over an unsecured connection.

Inngot does not retain any credit or debit card data after your payment has been successfully authorised.

Cookie policy

Cookies are very small text files consisting of unique numbers. They are generally produced if a web server does not detect a unique session ID. If you allow cookies, they are stored in a dedicated directory on your hard drive, and do not expire at the end of your session.

Inngot's website is designed to be visited frequently. Accordingly, some functionality on the Inngot website uses cookies - for instance, to make it easier for repeat visitors to navigate directly to an appropriate web page. Cookies can also be used to save you time and effort by automatically authorising repeat access to certain pages on every visit.

Use of this technology does not mean that Inngot automatically knows any information about you, and is designed solely to tell Inngot that you have visited the website previously, so that you can be provided with improved functionality. If you accept a cookie you will only receive it once: if you do not accept a cookie when offered, Inngot's web server will try to send you one with every page request.

Inngot may use more than one type of cookie. Temporary cookies help to maintain the user session and tell the Inngot server which page should be pulled up next, while log file cookies provide insights into how visitors move around the Inngot website, which pages are used frequently and which are less popular, enabling the site to be optimised.

Apart from cookies, your Internet Protocol (IP) address is used to establish a "session" with Inngot's servers for the delivery of services. Inngot may also store IP addresses and associate them with individual customers in order to enhance your browsing experience, typically by making it easier for you to access your preferred pages.

However, neither cookies nor IP addresses are used by Inngot as a substitute for user login and password routines. Even if someone else has access to your computer, the presence of cookies will not enable other users to access sensitive data.
