Wolfram|Alpha Widget Terms of Use

  • Acceptance of Terms

    Subject to these Wolfram|Alpha Widget Terms of Use (the "Terms"), Wolfram Alpha LLC ("Wolfram|Alpha"), a Delaware company, hereby grants you ("You") a personal, worldwide, non-assignable, non-exclusive license to access the Wolfram|Alpha website ("Website") via a Wolfram|Alpha Widget ("Widget" or "Service"). By using the Service You agree to comply with, and to be bound by, these Terms.

    Should You object to any provision or condition of these Terms, or any subsequent modifications thereto, or become dissatisfied with the Service in any way, You should immediately discontinue the use of the Service and will have no other recourse against Wolfram|Alpha.

    These Terms may be updated by Wolfram|Alpha, and Wolfram|Alpha will undertake reasonable efforts to notify You of such changes. However, You understand and agree that You are solely responsible for reviewing these Terms from time to time. The most current version of these Terms will be available at http://products.wolframalpha.com/api/widgetterms.html. Any continued use of a Widget by You after such amended Terms have been posted, or information regarding such amendment has been sent to You, shall be deemed Your consent and agreement to such amended Terms.

  • Description of Services

    2.1 Service. Wolfram|Alpha will provide results ("Results") from the Website that will be displayed, or otherwise used within, a Widget.

    2.2 Methods of Access. A Widget may only be used by a single human being using a conventional web browser to manually enter queries one at a time. Any attempt to use a robot, script, or organized group of humans to repeatedly access or interface with the Service is strictly forbidden.

    If Wolfram|Alpha monitoring systems detect an attempt to access the Service in a forbidden way, to execute systematic patterns of queries, to index or scrape data, or to do anything else that might jeopardize the integrity of the Website, or access to it by other users, Wolfram|Alpha may terminate or suspend access to the Service for specific users or IP ranges.

    2.3 Prohibitions. You will not:

    2.3.1 interfere or attempt to interfere in any manner with the proper workings of a Widget, or take any action that adversely affects the functionality or performance of the Website or services provided by Wolfram|Alpha;

    2.3.2 circumvent or render ineffective any IP-address-based functionality or restriction;

    2.3.3 sell, lease, lend, convey, redistribute, or sublicense to any third party all or any portion of a Widget, the Website, or the Results without the express written permission of Wolfram|Alpha;

    2.3.4 compromise the integrity of any Results made available through a Widget;

    2.3.5 cache, store, retain, or in any way compile any copies or portion of any Results by any means;

    2.3.6 use a Widget to intentionally encourage or promote copyright infringement or the exploitation of copyright-infringing materials;

    2.3.7 decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer a Widget or the Website;

    2.3.8 use any means to scrape or mine the data or other content associated with a Widget or the Website;

    2.3.9 infringe upon Wolfram|Alpha's or any third party's intellectual property or privacy rights;

    2.3.10 alter or block any component of a Widget, including but not limited to copyright notice, logos, digital watermarks, links, images, or sponsor content.

    2.4 Disclaimers. Results and information from a Widget and the Website are not certified or definitive authority that can be relied on for legal, financial, medical, life-safety, or any other critical purposes.

    2.5 Caching. Unless part of a written agreement to the contrary, You are prohibited from caching Results.

    2.6 Wolfram|Alpha Content Limitations. You understand that Results are provided as-is, and that not all of the data on the publicly available Website is accessible through a Widget, including but not limited to licensing and third-party restrictions and limitations.

  • Further Legal Provisions

    3.1 Compliance with Laws. You are responsible for complying with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, third-party rights, and Wolfram|Alpha policies, and shall not use a Widget in a manner that violates them or that is deceptive, unethical, false, or misleading.

    3.2 No Implied Rights. Except as expressly granted herein, Wolfram|Alpha grants You no other intellectual property rights or other propriety rights. Wolfram|Alpha, its corporate affiliates, and its applicable licensors retain all intellectual property rights (including all patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and other proprietary rights) in and to all Widgets and their documentation and content, all Wolfram|Alpha websites and all Wolfram|Alpha services and content in connection therewith. Any license rights granted herein are not sublicensable, transferable, or assignable unless otherwise stated herein or with the express written permission of Wolfram|Alpha.

    3.3 Indemnification. You shall indemnify, defend, and hold Wolfram|Alpha and its agents, affiliates, and licensors harmless from any claim, costs, losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising out of or in connection with any claim, action, or proceeding (any and all of which are "Claims") by a third party because of Your use of a Widget in any manner that fails to comply with Your duties associated with any provision of these Terms.

    3.4 Termination. Any rights or licenses contained in these Terms will terminate automatically without notice if You fail to comply with any provision of these Terms. Wolfram|Alpha reserves the right to terminate the Service or any portion or feature of the Website for any or no reason and at any time without liability to You.

    3.5 Modification. Wolfram|Alpha may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms at any time and in its sole discretion. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR SOLE RECOURSE IS TO CEASE USE OF THE SERVICE. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF A WOLFRAM|ALPHA WIDGET FOLLOWING POSTING OF A CHANGE NOTICE OR NEW AGREEMENT ON THE WOLFRAM|ALPHA SITE WILL CONSTRUE BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE. Any modifications by You to these Terms shall be made in writing and executed or acknowledged by both parties.

    3.6 Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy for Wolfram|Alpha also applies to Widgets. Please view the privacy policy at http://www.wolframalpha.com/privacypolicy.html. Two specific points to note:

    1. Wolfram|Alpha does not collect any personal information outside of a Widget when placed on an external site; and

    2. Wolfram|Alpha does not control, and is not responsible for, the content or privacy policy of any external site that uses a Widget.

    3.7 Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability. Wolfram|Alpha makes no warranties, other than those specifically indicated in these Terms, to You or to any third party. Acceptance of these Terms indicates that You have read and understand all disclaimers of warranty and limitations of liability contained herein. Wolfram|Alpha shall have no obligation or liability with respect to any claim, suit, or proceeding based upon any use of a Widget. WOLFRAM|ALPHA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO A WIDGET, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, INTEROPERABILITY, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. IN NO EVENT SHALL WOLFRAM|ALPHA BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR ANY MATERIALS OR SERVICES FURNISHED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF WOLFRAM|ALPHA HAS BEEN ADVISED, KNOWS, OR SHOULD KNOW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL WOLFRAM|ALPHA'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR ANY MATERIALS OR SERVICES FURNISHED HEREUNDER EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT THAT WAS ACTUALLY PAID TO WOLFRAM|ALPHA BY YOU UNDER THESE TERMS AS OF THE DATE SUCH CLAIM AROSE. THE LIMITATIONS STATED IN THIS SECTION APPLY WHETHER THE ASSERTED LIABILITY OR DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BREACH OF WARRANTY), TORT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE GROUND. EACH OF THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IS INTENDED TO BE ENFORCEABLE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY OTHER EXCLUSIVE OR NON-EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THESE TERMS FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THIS SECTION STATES WOLFRAM|ALPHA'S EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION, AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM, SUIT, OR PROCEEDING.

    3.8 Release. You hereby release and covenant not to sue Wolfram|Alpha, its corporate affiliates, or any of their officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, licensors, licensees, assigns, or successors for any and all damages, liabilities, causes of action, judgments, or claims (a) pertaining to any intellectual property You develop that is based on, uses, or relates to a Widget or the Website; and (b) which otherwise may arise in connection with Your use of, reliance on, or reference to a Widget or the Website.

    3.9 Miscellaneous. These Terms are governed by Illinois law, except for Illinois's conflicts of laws principles, and all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Wolfram|Alpha content and services shall be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Champaign County, Illinois, USA, and You and Wolfram|Alpha consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. These Terms, and any documents referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default. Unenforceable provisions will be modified to reflect the parties' intention, and remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full effect. You shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of Your rights or delegate Your obligations hereunder and any such attempt is null and void. You and Wolfram|Alpha are not legal partners or agents, but are independent contractors.
