Your access to and use of CLO Loan Data provided by Moody’s Analytics, Inc. and its affiliates (“Moody’s”) via the Services is permitted only upon compliance and agreement with the following terms. “CLO Loan Data” consists of certain data in respect of individual loans which constitute collateral for collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), including without limitation the name of the loan, name of the issuer, type of loan, stated spread, maturity date, current principal balance of each loan, unique loan identifier, name of the CLO for which the loan is part of the collateral, and name of the collateral/investment manager for the CLO.
Use of Data. You may access and use the CLO Loan Data for Your own internal business use only, and except as otherwise permitted under a User Agreement between You and Reorg, shall not provide any CLO Loan Data to any other entity (whether or not it is an affiliated company) or to any person employed by (or otherwise acting on behalf of) any other entity. You represent that you are not (i) a vendor which engages in providing data similar in character to the CLO Loan Data to its customers or (ii) a person or entity that is accessing or using the CLO Loan Data on behalf of any such vendor.
Qualified Institutional Buyer. You represent that you are (i) a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in the Securities Act of 1933 or are (ii) an attorney, accountant, advisor or authorized agent of “qualified institutional buyers.”
Intellectual Property. You agree You shall obtain no rights in any Moody’s Intellectual Property, including without limitation the CLO Loan Data. “Intellectual Property” shall mean all forms of intellectual property rights and protections held by Moody’s and may include without limitation all right, title and interest arising under U.S. common and statutory law, and laws of other countries in and to all (a) patents and all filed, pending or potential applications for patents, including any reissue, reexamination, division, continuation or continuation-in-part applications throughout the world now or hereafter filed; (b) trade secret rights and equivalent rights; (c) copyrights, other literary property or authors rights, whether or not protected by copyright or as a mask work; and (d) proprietary indicia, trademarks, trade names, symbols, domain names, URL’s, logos and/or brand names. Moody’s will retain all ownership rights in and to all Moody’s Intellectual Property. You agree to comply with the restrictions on use of the CLO Loan Data and shall take all reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized use, access, copying or disclosure of Moody’s Intellectual Property. You agree to promptly notify Moody’s of known unauthorized use of any Moody’s Intellectual Property. You agree not to contest the validity of the Moody’s Intellectual Property.
Moody’s Trademarks. You are strictly prohibited from using any CLO Loan Data, corporate names, designation logo, trade name, trademark, service name or service mark in any marketing materials, offering circular, prospectus or any securities offering document, without the prior written consent of Moody’s.
Required Affiliate Disclosures. Certain CLO Loan Data may consist of quantitative estimates of default, or may consist of models and data used by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“MIS”) in the credit ratings process or may be designed to indicate what an MIS rating would be based on certain assumptions, financial and portfolio data and/or other variable inputs. However, none of the CLO Loan Data represent or constitute an actual MIS rating, rating action or opinion unless specifically designated as such by MIS, whether or not any of the assumptions or other data are correct, or the ultimate events related thereto differ materially from the factors used as inputs to such products. MIS operates separately and independently from Moody’s, and nothing in this Agreement, or in any other materials prepared by Moody’s, compelled or will compel MIS to assign a particular rating or any revision thereof to any collateral loans included in the CLO Loan Data. You understand that MIS may at any time refuse to issue any rating, or, if already issued, revise or withdraw such rating. You further agree not to represent, imply, or otherwise suggest that any CLO Loan Data constitutes or affects an MIS rating, rating action, or opinion. You acknowledge that (a) any MIS credit ratings and other opinions contained in such CLO Loan Data are, and will be construed solely as, statements of opinion and not statements of fact or recommendations to purchase, hold or sell any securities, (b) each rating or other opinion will be weighed solely as one factor in any investment decision made by or on Your behalf, and (c) You will accordingly make Your own study and evaluation of each security, and of each issuer and guarantor of, and each provider of credit support for, each security that You may consider purchasing, holding or selling.
