3 CREATION OF AN ONEKEY WEB AUTHENTICATION ACCOUNT AND ACCESS TO PORTAL
3.1 Conditions for Obtaining the Identifier and Password
The process for creating and registering an account to access the Portal (a “Onekey Web Authentication Account”) is as follows:
1. The User can either (i) insert his/her healthcare professional card into a card reader (if available) in order to automatically fill out the form (and then complete the form if certain fields remain blank), or (ii) fill out the entire registration form available on the Portal. The User shall provide the requested mandatory information, while ensuring that it is accurate and complete;
2. IQVIA then checks all of the information provided by the User and may, in its sole discretion, independently verify the accuracy and completeness of such information by reference to a third party;
3. IQVIA then in its absolute discretion verifies whether on the basis of the submitted information, the User meets the conditions for creating an Onekey Web Authentication Account.
If the above conditions are met, the User receives via email a hypertext link together with his/her identifier and a modifiable password that will allow for activation of his/her Onekey Web Authentication Account. Thereafter, using his/her identifier and password and subject to these Terms, the User will be able to access and use the Portal.
3.2 Security of the Identifier and Password
The connection identifier and password for each User are strictly personal and confidential, and may not be used by anyone except the relevant User to which they are assigned. Every User is personally responsible for his/her connection identifier and password, and must therefore ensure their security and confidentiality. In case of loss or theft of his/her identifier and/or password, the User undertakes to so inform IQVIA as quickly as possible.
3.3 Modification of the Information Granting Access to the Portal
Users acknowledge and agree that the creation of an Onekey Web Authentication Account is contingent on the User's status. Consequently, Users shall promptly inform IQVIA of any modification of his/her status or professional situation that is likely to impact the access rights granted to the User herein.
3.4 Loss of Portal Access Right
IQVIA reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to deactivate an identifier or password in its absolute discretion, including in circumstances where (but not limited to):
3.4.1 the User has provided IQVIA with inaccurate, false or otherwise misleading information at the time of registration;
3.4.2 the User has not promptly provide an update in connection with his/her change of status in accordance with paragraph 3.3 above;
3.4.3 the change in the User's status no longer entitles the User to use an Onekey Web Authentication Account (in IQVIA’s absolute discretion);
3.4.4 the identifier and/or password has been communicated to a third party or a third party has been allowed to access the Portal using another User’s then current web session; or
3.4.5 the User has made fraudulent or otherwise unlawful use of the Portal.
3.5 Publisher web sites
3.5.1 Users acknowledge and agree that IQVIA has no control over any website owned or operated for or on behalf of a Publisher. IQVIA therefore disclaims any and all liability or responsibility for any content or services provided on or through any Publisher web site, or any User’s use or reliance on such content or services.
3.5.2 Each Publisher is responsible for its own web site. Hence, each Publisher may in its sole discretion determine who will be authorised to access its web site, on the basis of the status of the Users and by means of the Onekey Web Authentication connection identifier and password. The Users acknowledge and agree that IQVIA is not involved in this decision and therefore IQVIA shall not be held responsible for any User’s inability to access any web site of a Publisher. In order to challenge any such web site access refusal, the User should therefore directly liaise with the web site's Publisher.
