Terms and conditions

Access to and use of this Internet site (the 'Site') is provided subject to these terms and conditions. Please read these terms carefully, because use of the site constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.

Under no circumstances may you share your user name and password for the Site with another person.

The Site provides a range of information concerning computer hardware and related products, including without limitation product descriptions, channel and marketing information and editorial commentary (collectively, the 'Information'). Although Canalys attempts to provide Information that is useful, Canalys cannot possibly ensure the accuracy of all of the Information at all times, and you should not rely on the Information in situations where its inaccuracy would cause you to suffer any significant loss.

The information is provided by Canalys 'as is' and 'with all faults.' Canalys makes no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the accuracy, completeness or suitability of the information, either express or implied, including without limitation any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.

Canalys shall not be liable under any circumstances or under any legal theory for any direct, indirect, punitive, special, incidental or consequential damages that may be suffered by you or any other user of the site in connection with or as a result of the information or the products, regardless of how such damages may arise and even if Canalys has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages.

Canalys has a liberal policy with regard to the re-use of information that it provides to its clients, whether within reports, databases, presentations, e-mails or any other format. A client may circulate Canalys information to colleagues within his or her organization worldwide, including wholly-owned subsidiaries, but not to a third party. For the avoidance of doubt, sharing of information is not permitted with organizations that are associated with the client by a joint venture, investment or common shareholding. If you wish to share information with the press or use any information in a public forum then you must receive prior explicit written approval from Canalys.

Canalys reserves the right to deny Site access, without warning, to any individual or organisation it believes has behaved inappropriately, which includes, but is not limited to, illegal re-distribution of content, password sharing, posting of offensive, illegal, potentially libelous or deliberately false or misleading comments or profile information, or otherwise attempted to interfere with the smooth running of the Site.
