Limitations on Use:
The Securities Class Action Clearinghouse (SCAC) is a free public database and website designed to support corporate board members, executives, regulators, policy makers, journalists, lawyers, scholars, and the broader community in their understanding and awareness of securities class action litigation. Users of the SCAC can register to receive weekly email notices about recently-filed securities class action complaints and news in the area of securities class action litigation (“Email Notifications”).
Subject to the terms of this Terms of Service, with proper attribution, you may use the SCAC for your personal, non-commercial research or analysis.
Any unauthorized or prohibited use of any content may subject you to civil liability, criminal prosecution, or both, under applicable federal, state, local laws, or applicable foreign laws, rules, regulations, and treaties.
The SCAC provides users the option to register and access the service through a unique username and password (the “User ID”) that is for your personal, non-commercial use only. If you access the SCAC with a User ID, you agree as follows:
As part of the registration process, which may be necessary to obtain access to the SCAC, certain registration information may be provided to the SCAC, Stanford University, and its authorized employees, contractors, vendors, and agents. You represent that your registration information is accurate and truthful. You shall promptly inform the SCAC of any updates to your registration information in order to keep it true, accurate, and up to date. Each registration is for a single user only. The SCAC reserves the right to deny creation of your account based on the SCAC’s inability to verify the authenticity of your registration information.
The User ID may be used by you to gain access to the SCAC only for so long as you are authorized to access and use the SCAC in accordance with these Terms of Service.
Only you may access the SCAC through the User ID.
You agree to treat the User ID as confidential and not to disclose such User ID, either directly or indirectly, to any person.
You shall not use a User ID that the SCAC, in its sole discretion, deems offensive or inappropriate.
You are fully responsible for all usage and activity of the SCAC, including, but not limited to, any use of the User ID.
Registration and the creation of a User ID are meant solely as a convenience for users and confer no copyright, trademark, or other rights to the user. The SCAC reserves the right to terminate or suspend your access to the SCAC at its discretion.
