Thank you for visiting the Phanes Group website. By accessing this website (the “Website”) you agree to follow the terms and conditions set out on this page.

Use the Website Appropriately

Do not try to interfere with the Website’s security features, stop other people from accessing it, or damage or vandalise the information on it. We take these matters seriously and will refer them to law enforcement.

Everything on our Website is protected by copyright law. Accessing and viewing the content we provide does not give you any ownership or rights in it. This means that you cannot use content you find on our Website in any way unless you get written permission from the person that owns it, which in most cases is Phanes Group. That includes logos, charts and pictures as well as any text on the Website or in a file we provide on the Website.

If you want to request permission to use something from our Website, you can contact us here. We’ll do our best to get back to you quickly and accommodate your request. If the content you want to use is owned by someone else, we’ll let you know that as well.

Content on the Website

Most of the content on the Website belongs to Phanes Group. Some of the content we provide, however, may come from other sources. Content on our Website that is not provided by Phanes Group is the sole responsibility of the person or group that provided that content. If you’re not sure whether a specific piece of content is being provided by Phanes Group or some other party, contact us here and we’ll let you know.

When we provide content not owned by Phanes Group, either on our own Website or in a link to another website not owned by Phanes Group, it is because we wanted to provide you with information that might be relevant to your interests in Phanes Group. It does not mean that the views in this content are Phanes Group’s. Likewise, if we reference a company, product or service that is not provided by Phanes Group on our Website, it’s intended to be informative and does not mean that Phanes Group endorses or recommends it.

What We Collect from You When You Visit the Website

We collect two kinds of information when you visit the Website.

First, we collect any information you voluntarily provide to us. For example, if you fill out the web form on our Contact Us page, we collect that information.

Secondly, we automatically collect some information from you that’s related to how you’re accessing the Website. For example, we collect the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the domain you use to access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, the pages you visit, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site, as well as other similar features that are useful to us in providing the best possible content to you. This information is not shared with anyone beyond the support staff for this Website, except when required by law or other law enforcement authorities, and is used only as a source of anonymous statistical information.

By using the Website, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you make available to us by way of your use of the Website, as outlined above, and for our other reasonable business purpose.

Limitation of Our Liability

We provide the Website to you on an “as is” basis. We don’t give you any warranties or guarantees about how the Website will work, the availability of the Website, or whether you can get results from the Website. Likewise, none of the third parties that provide any of the content on the Website is liable for any acts or damages that arise out of your use, or inability to use, the Website either.

If you violate the Terms of Use and another person or entity brings a legal claim against Phanes Group, its portfolio of companies, its affiliates, or their respective officers, directors, owners, agents, information providers or copyright owners (together, the “Phanes Group Parties”) as a result of your violation, you are required to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Phanes Group Parties for that legal claim.

About These Terms of Use

By using the Website, you agree to the Terms of Use on this page. If you don’t agree with these Terms of Use, don’t use the Website.

We may change these Terms of Use from time to time, and any changes to these Terms of Use become effective from their publication on the Website, so please check this Terms of Use page regularly. If you do not accept any such changes, then you must cease using the Website.

We reserve the right to end your use of the Website at any time, for any reason, without notice or liability to us. If you violate any of the Terms of Use, and we don’t take action right away, that doesn’t mean we accept your conduct or agree to not take action in the future.

If there is any dispute between you and Phanes Group about or related to the Terms of Use, the laws of the United Arab Emirates (and, as applicable, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi) will apply to the dispute. If there is any dispute, it will be settled before the Abu Dhabi civil courts. Of course, if you break the law by attempting to tamper with or disrupt the Website, that will be handled by law enforcement and the criminal courts.

If you have any questions about the Terms of Use, contact us here and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
