Explicitly, Data does not include physical samples or biological materials;1.2 “Data Subject” shall mean the person (irrespective of state of health) to whom Data refers and who has been informed of the purpose for which the Data is held and has given his/her informed consent thereto;1.3 “Intellectual Property” means (i) patents, designs, trade marks and trade names (whether registered or unregistered), copyright and related rights, database rights, know-how and confidential information; (ii) all other intellectual property rights and similar or equivalent rights anywhere in the world which currently exist or are recognised in the future; and (iii) applications, extensions and renewals in relation to any such rights;1.4 “Registered User” shall mean a Researcher (or an individual conducting Research under the direct supervision of that Researcher) that is employed by, or holds an appointment with, the Recipient and is bound by confidentiality and non-use obligations in respect of Data and who has signed this Agreement and has received acknowledgement of its acceptance.
