Terms & Conditions


Welcome to the ICC Digital Library. ICC provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms and Conditions. When using the ICC Library, you are deemed to agree to these terms and conditions at all times.


ICC Digital Library is a joint initiative by ICC, ICC Services and Coastline Solutions which provides users with fully searchable access to a rich collection of on-line resources published by the International Chamber of Commerce and ICC Entities (the "Service").
Additional resources will be added to the Service over time as they become available. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that ICC, ICC Entities assume no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any information.
Under this Agreement, a subscriber is granted a nonexclusive, revocable, nontransferable license to access the ICC Library over the Internet via the Subscribing User or Institution’s Internet Protocol addresses (IP addresses). In the case that the subscriber is an institution (“Subscribing Institution”), the authorized users must be employees, faculty, staff, and/or students officially affiliated with the Subscribing Institution and authorized clients of the Subscribing Institution’s library facilities.
A subscriber may not make ICC Library content and resources available electronically to anyone other than another Subscriber. ICC asks that any Institutional Users agree to make reasonable efforts to take appropriate action if they become aware of any misuse of the ICC Library subscription that would violate the terms of the agreement.


You are entirely responsible for all content that you upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via the Service. Under no circumstances will ICC or ICC Entities be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content in the Service.

You agree to not use the Service to:

  • upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
  • impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, an ICC, ICC staff member or Coastline Solutions employee;
  • upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party;
  • upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam" or any other form of solicitation;
  • upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment;
  • interfere with or disrupt the Service or servers or networks connected to the Service, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to the Service;
  • collect or store personal data about other users.

You acknowledge that ICC does not pre-screen content, but that ICC shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or move any content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, ICC shall have the right to remove any content that violates the terms and conditions or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content.

ICC or ICC Entity reserves the right to suspend or terminate access to the ICC Library without prior notice if Subscriber or an authorized user of a Subscribing Institution violates any term of this Agreement.


As part of your registration to access the service you must provide certain information about yourself and/or your organization. We are committed to keeping this information private, and ICC, ICC Entities and Coastline Solutions will not share your information with any third party without your consent.
We will use your personal information only for the purposes of providing the service to you. We will communicate with you by e-mail, mail or telephone as necessary to provide you updates on the Service, or in relation to your subscription.


Subscriber’s sole and exclusive remedy for damages and/or loss in any way connected with this subscription to the ICC Library shall be limited to the amount of the subscription fee.


ICC, Coastline or ICC Entities reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue temporarily, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that ICC, Coastline or ICC Entities shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of parts of the Service.
Both ICC, Coastline and the customer may terminate the subscription at the end of a subscription year by written notice sent to the address below 30 days before the end of the subscription year.
You may terminate your subscription to ICC at any time provided that you can clearly show consistent failure to access the service resulting from failure in the delivery of the service by ICC. A request for termination must be submitted in writing to Coastline Solutions and ICC at the address given on the website of the Library. Upon approved termination Coastline Solutions will refund you the equivalent amount of any remaining full quarters of your subscription.
You agree that ICC or Coastline, in its sole discretion, may terminate your username and password or use of the Service, if ICC or Coastline believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the terms and conditions. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these terms and conditions may be effected without prior notice.


This Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between the parties.
The Subscriber may not assign or transfer its rights under this agreement.
In the event that any provision of this Agreement be held to be void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect and are to be read and construed as if the void or unenforceable provisions were deleted in the original text.
