ICCBBA's Commitment to Registered and Licensed Facilities
ICCBBA will provide documentation of all updates and extensions to ISBT 128 to each Registered and Licensed Facility as they become available. ICCBBA maintains a Website (http://www.iccbba.org) through which updates and extensions are first published. Licensed facilities may self-select a password to gain access to the password protected area of the ICCBBA Website in order to obtain these updates and extensions. ICCBBA attempts to make certain that all data in ICCBBA databases are accurate, and will immediately make available any corrections. Data provided in the Facility Identification Number and Manufacturer Identification Code tables can only be as accurate as the most recent information provided to ICCBBA.
ICCBBA's Grant of License
What a Licensed Facility May Do
Use ISBT 128 and any other material to which ICCBBA owns the copyright (data identifiers, data structures, databases, access to the password protected area of the ICCBBA Website).
What a Licensed Facility May Not Do
Make copies of any item marked as "Copyright © (year[s]) ICCBBA." without express written permission, with the single exception that one copy per licensed facility may be downloaded and stored for local access (copies are always available in the password protected section of the ICCBBA Website).
Share ICCBBA materials with others who are not licensed users of ISBT 128.
ICCBBA provides no warranty that the use of ISBT 128 is suitable for any particular purpose and the selection, use, efficiency and suitability of ISBT 128 is the sole responsibility of the Licensed User.
ICCBBA's liability is limited solely to those items listed in the section "ICCBBA's Commitment to Registered and Licensed Facilities." Under no circumstances shall ICCBBA's liability exceed the current annual license fee, and ICCBBA will in no circumstances be liable for any damages whatsoever, including without limitation damages for loss of data, business or goodwill or any other consequential losses of any nature arising from the use of ISBT 128.
This License Agreement is considered to be terminated in any year in which the annual license fee as established by the ICCBBA Board of Directors has not been paid thirty (30) days after the date stipulated on the fee invoice. When this License Agreement is terminated all documentation and databases supplied to the Licensed User must be returned to the ICCBBA office at its currently published address.
Any controversy arising out of this License Agreement shall be settled by non-binding mediation in the first instance and, should that prove non-satisfactory, by arbitration in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in which state ICCBBA is incorporated, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association.
Except for United States Licensed Users that are supported by state funds, any action with respect to this License Agreement must be brought in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in which state ICCBBA is incorporated.
