At the end of the period during which Receiving Party was allowed to use the Content, the Receiving Party shall immediately and on their own initiative return all Content to Tecnotion.

3.7.    Receiving Party shall impose the same or stricter obligations and prohibitions on that third party as set out in these Terms and shall be fully liable towards Tecnotion for any damages suffered by Tecnotion resulting from any failure (or omission) of the third party to fulfill these obligations and / or prohibitions.

This includes, but is not limited to, performing any filings and/or registrations and/or entering into any formal procedures and/or any other act in regards to the Content which could limit Tecnotion’s possibilities to fully and freely exploit the Content as she sees fit.

5.       Liability

5.1.    Tecnotion shall in no way be liable for any damage suffered by Receiving Party as a result of the use of, or in any other way connected to the Content, unless the damage is the direct result of Tecnotion’s intent or gross negligence.
