1. Scope

Guilford Publications, Inc. (“Publisher”) grants the subscribing institution or subscribing individual ("Licensee") and, where the subscription is paid for by a library or institution, its Authorized Users non-exclusive and non-transferable online access to specific Guilford periodicals (the “Licensed Materials”) for research and private study subject to the terms and conditions of this License, and subject to users having a valid paid subscription to a specific periodical title, which includes online access, or for which the online access fee has been paid.

Authorized Users are defined as current members of the faculty and other staff of the Licensee (whether on a permanent, temporary, contract or visiting basis) and individuals who are currently studying at the Licensee’s institution, who are permitted to access the Secure Network from within the Library, and persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses of the Licensee that are administered from the Licensee’s site or campus, but not those persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses with a separate administrative staff. Authorized Users may also be members of the general public who are permitted to use the Licensee’s library or information service and access the Secure Network but only from computer terminals within the Library Premises.

Licensee agrees that Guilford may use and share information in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Subject to these Terms, the Privacy Policy and any applicable laws and regulation, Licensee hereby authorizes and consents to the collection, storage, sharing, and use by Guilford and its affiliates, partners and agents, of any information or data that Licensee or Authorized Users provide to Guilford and its affiliates, partners and agents.

2. Duration

Access shall commence at the beginning of the subscription period for each title and shall automatically terminate at the end of the subscription period, unless the subscription is renewed or online access fees are paid.

On termination of this license, the Publisher shall provide continuing access for Licensee or--where the access to the Licensed Materials is granted by payment of a subscription by a library or an institution--its Authorized Users to those volumes and issues of specific titles which were published and paid for within the subscription period, for a period of not less than ten (10) years.

Nothing in this License shall in any way exclude, modify or affect any of the Licensee’s rights under Copyright Revision Act 1976 as amended subsequently provided that such rights are exercised in accordance with Section 108 of the Act and with the guidelines developed by the National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works (CONTU Guidelines) and published in U.S. Copyright Office Circular 21.

Irrespective of the cause or form of action, the Publisher’s aggregate liability for any claims, losses, or damages arising out of any breach of this License shall in no circumstances exceed the Fee paid by Licensee to the Publisher under this License in respect of the Subscription Period during which such claim, loss or damage occurred. The foregoing limitation of liability and exclusion of certain damages shall apply regardless of the success or effectiveness of other remedies. Regardless of the cause or form of action, the Licensee may bring no action arising from this License more than six (6) months after the cause of action arises.
