2 RPX Service
Changes to the Service
RPX reserves the right to modify or stop the Service (or any part thereof), either temporarily or permanently, at any time or from time to time, with or without prior notice to you. Without limiting the foregoing, we may post on our website or via the Service notice of such changes to the Service. It is your responsibility to review our website for any such notices.

Limitations on Use
You agree to use the Service only for purposes as permitted by these Terms and in accordance with any applicable law, regulation, or generally accepted practice in the applicable jurisdiction.
RPX may provide you with an individual user ID (each a “User ID”) for access to certain parts of the Service. A User ID may only be used by the individual to whom it is issued.
If you received a User ID with access to RPX Insight, the following additional terms will apply to your use of that User ID:
- You may only use such User ID while you are employed by the company for which RPX authorized your access to the RPX Insight website.
- As between you and the company with which you are employed, such company will have full control over your User ID, and RPX may, in its sole discretion or at the request of such company, at any time terminate your ability to access those aspects of the Service that can only be accessed through a User ID. If such company ceases to be a member of RPX or you cease to be employed by such company, we may terminate your ability to access those aspects of the Service that can only be accessed through a User ID.
- In limited circumstances, RPX may provide an attorney with a User ID with access to the RPX Insight website when that attorney acts as outside legal counsel in patent-related matters for the company for which such User ID was authorized by RPX. If you are an attorney to whom such a User ID is issued, you may use the User ID, and any Content that you access through the User ID, only for the benefit of such company and in the course of performing services for such company (and such use will be deemed “internal use” for purposes of Section 5 below).
If you are an attorney that has been provided with a User ID with access to the RPX Insight website in connection with your position as outside legal counsel in patent-related matters for a company for which such User ID was authorized by RPX, as between you and the company for which RPX authorized your access to the RPX Insight website, the company will have full control over the User ID, and RPX may, in its sole discretion or at the request of the company, at any time terminate your ability to access the RPX Insight website. If the company ceases to be a member of RPX, or if you cease to act as outside legal counsel in patent-related matters for the company, RPX may terminate your ability to access the RPX Insight website. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, in no event may you use the User ID to access the RPX Insight website, or any Content that you access through the User ID on the RPX Insight website, for the benefit of any person or entity other than the company for which your User ID was authorized by RPX.
Upon receiving your User ID, you will be required to select a password. Please choose a strong password and do not reveal your password to others. You agree that you are responsible for keeping your password confidential and secure, and further understand that you (together with your company if you are an individual who registers for a User ID for the RPX Insight website) are solely responsible and liable for any activities that occur under your User ID. Each company will be responsible for all activity that occurs under each of its employee’s and attorney’s User IDs for the RPX Insight website. If you suspect or become aware of any unauthorized use of any User ID, or if you become aware that any employee or attorney with an active User ID ceases to be employed or engaged by the company for which such User ID was authorized by RPX for the RPX Insight website, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You agree that all information you provide to RPX during the registration process (“Registration Data”) will be accurate, complete and current information, and that you will maintain and update the Registration Data as needed to keep it accurate and current.
