11. Uploading content and data to the services
11.1 If you are a Manufacturer, you must register all stones for a given box within ten (10) days of receipt of the relevant box. Whenever the diamond changes form, you must upload and/or update the relevant data. For example, through the splitting and polishing process you must upload more information through the Data Integration Tool, data of which will be appended to the diamond. Where a stone is split into multiple pieces the resulting “child” stones are provided with new individual IDs which are linked to the parent, thus preserving the chain of traceability.
11.2 Tracr reserves the right to conduct (and/or engage a third party service provider to conduct) independent verification checks of management systems and production processes for any reason, from time to time (including but not limited to investigate and/or support any provenance claim made in connection with stones registered on the Tracr Platform, with the DTC provenance, including but not limited to Pipeline Integrity standards, and participation in the annual Pipeline Integrity programme, for all relevant Pipeline Integrity Entities which is a requirement of all Participants registering diamonds with DTC provenance on Tracr as of 1 January 2023).
11.3 You retain all of your ownership rights in any content or data (including but not limited to any content, information or data, images or text) that you upload via and to the Services and/or Tracr Platform (Participant Content), but you grant us and our service providers a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable licence to use, reproduce, store, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and copy Participant Content in connection with the Services and so that we can provide the Services and further develop the Services including the conduct of internal testing. You warrant that the Participant Content which concerns a physical diamond asset which you upload to the Services relates to a physical diamond asset which you legally own and which is a natural untreated diamond. Unless expressly agreed otherwise by Tracr in writing, the owner of the physical diamond asset and related Participant Content shall be the party to whom the Tracr Platform is provisioned.
11.4 When you submit Participant Content to the Tracr platform it is registered as a digital asset on the Tracr ledger. Following submission of the Participant Content to the Tracr Platform, the subsequent transfer of the digital asset is managed by Tracr. Tracr uses its reasonable endeavours to assure accuracy, validity, and consistency of the original data at the point of their submission to the Tracr Platform by the Participants (including by only accepting certain files from certain systems). However, you acknowledge and agree that Tracr is unable to fully verify the accuracy and/or validity of the original Participant Content at the point of their submission to the Tracr Platform. You represent and warrant that any/all Participant Content will be lawful, accurate, valid and complete at the point of their submission by the Tracr platform in order to create the digital asset. No representation or warranty (express or implied) is therefore given by Tracr as to the accuracy, validity or completeness of the data at the point of their submission by the Participant to the Tracr Platform in order to create the digital asset.
11.5 You are responsible for taking appropriate action to secure, protect and backup your accounts in connection with the Services and/or your Participant Content in a manner that will provide appropriate security and protection.
