Your use of the Licensed Material:
- for the avoidance of doubt, Section 2(a)(1)
grants You the right to extract, reuse, reproduce, and Share all or a
substantial portion of the contents of the database for NonCommercial purposes
- if You include all or a substantial portion of the database
contents in a database in which You have Sui Generis Database Rights, then the

of this Public License or use of the Licensed Material, even if the Licensor
has been advised of the possibility of such losses, costs, expenses, or
damages. Where a limitation of liability is not allowed in full or in part,
this limitation may not apply to You.

above shall be interpreted in a manner that, to the extent possible, most
closely approximates an absolute disclaimer and waiver of all liability.

Similar Rights licensed here. However, if You fail to comply with this Public
License, then Your rights under this Public License terminate automatically.

is cured within 30 days of Your discovery of the violation; or
- upon express reinstatement by the Licensor.
- For the avoidance of doubt, the Licensor may also offer the
Licensed Material under separate terms or conditions or stop distributing the
Licensed Material at any time; however, doing so will not terminate this Public

remaining terms and conditions.
