We may change the content, format or update frequency of the ABA Information or the ABA Site at any time for any reason.
Either party has the right to terminate this Agreement by giving notice to the other. Your license to use the ABA Information or access the ABA Site is revoked immediately upon termination of this Agreement.
3. Ownership and Use Rights and Obligations.
We own all right, title and interest in and to the ABA Information. We grant to you a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, license during the term to use any ABA Information solely for your internal business purposes (the “Permitted Business Purposes”).
