General Use and Restrictions

Subject to Licensee's acceptance of, and compliance with, the terms of this Agreement, the Mathematica License Agreement, and any relevant Site License, WRI grants Licensee a non-exclusive license to use the Software to integrate the power of Mathematica into one or more specific-use Public Internet Sites by linking Licensee's Interface to the Software. This Agreement expressly disallows use of the Software in conjunction with any Private Internet Site or Intranet Site. This Agreement expressly disallows use of the Software in conjunction with any for-profit or government site.

The term of this license runs concurrently with Licensee's subscription to Premier Service. Additional details are listed on the applicable License Certificate and the relevant Site License (if any).

This license terminates in the event that Licensee receives a license to use an upgraded version of the Software in place of this license, which upgrade, as well as any other improvement, enhancement, or the like, WRI is under no obligation to provide.

A Site that delivers Mathematica itself to Users is prohibited by this Agreement. This Agreement allows Licensee to present to Users of Licensee's Sites the power of specific or derivative capabilities of Mathematica through an Interface specialized for the use of those capabilities, so long as the content is not that of the Mathematica user experience itself.

Licensee may not use the license granted hereunder in connection with any Site operated for or resulting in direct commercial gain; use of the license granted hereunder for such purposes is a violation of this Agreement and may result in its immediate termination.

Specific Use Restrictions and Site Requirements

Licensee may not create a Site in which the User can type in arbitrary, open-ended calculation requests, in Mathematica syntax or in any other syntax or means of specification, and have those requests carried out by the Software. In addition, Licensee may not aggregate multiple Sites with incremental functionality in order to re-create the Mathematica user experience or any significant portion thereof. In other words, Licensee may not offer Licensee's Users through multiple Sites a level of functionality that would violate this Agreement if offered through a single Site. In no event may Licensee allow Users to bypass such restrictions or otherwise access the Software directly.

Licensee may not replicate, in whole or in part, the "look and feel" of Mathematica with Licensee's Interface. Licensee's Interface may not be composed of a combination of visual, design, or functional elements that could reasonably be expected to cause confusion between Mathematica and Licensee's Interface among Users of Licensee's Site. The criteria for assessing compliance with this restriction will be set and applied at WRI's sole discretion. WRI agrees to exercise that discretion reasonably.

Within sixty (60) days of executing this Agreement, Licensee agrees to provide WRI with the name(s) of the manager, systems administrator, and/or webmaster responsible for monitoring or maintaining any Site that utilizes the license granted by this Agreement. Licensee will provide telephone numbers and email addresses for each such person. It is Licensee's responsibility to ensure that this information is updated; the supplying of this information and its accuracy are conditions for maintaining the ongoing validity of this Agreement.

Licensee agrees to provide a web link supplied by WRI on any Site covered by this Agreement. WRI will supply Licensee with a graphic and hypertext link to a server operated by WRI that Licensee will display on all pages that supply input to or receive output from the Software, such link to include the phrase "Powered by webMathematica". This banner shall appear in reasonably close proximity to the input or output displays. In addition, Licensee agrees to permit WRI to use the name and/or URL of Licensee's Site in promotional materials.

Inspection of Sites

When a Site becomes available to Users, Licensee agrees to notify WRI of the URL or IP address of that Site as soon as possible after the Site "goes live".

WRI reserves the right to determine at any time during the term of this Agreement, based on inspection of Sites, whether a particular Site is in compliance with the terms of this Agreement. If WRI determines that a Site is not in compliance, whether through flaws in intent, design, or implementation, remedies will be suggested to bring that Site into compliance with this Agreement. In the event that a nonconforming Site remains nonconforming after WRI has allowed a reasonable amount of time to permit Licensee to implement appropriate remedies, WRI reserves the right to terminate this Agreement with ten (10) days' notice to Licensee.

Licensee agrees that ongoing operation of an unlicensed or nonconforming Site would cause WRI irreparable harm. Licensee agrees to, at WRI's request, render inaccessible any Site covered by this Agreement whose compliance is subject to dispute or legal action, for the duration of the dispute. In consideration thereof, if such a Site is ultimately found to be conforming or is made to conform, WRI will extend the duration of any time-limited license or service contract by the amount of time that Licensee's affected Site was rendered inaccessible to Users, regardless of the status of the Agreement.

Online Services and Data

WRI reserves the right to restrict access to, add, update, modify, or remove collections of data based on availability, or otherwise at WRI's discretion. You agree all data access and use, whether by You in developing an application or by Users of Sites or related services You provide via the web or in other ways, will not access or use the data collections in such a manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the servers providing such data. Data provided through WRI's data services constitutes protected intellectual property and may not be copied, distributed, used to construct a database, stored (in whole or in part) in databases for access by You or any third party including Users of services facilitated by You, or provided or distributed through any database services containing all or part of such data. Access to the data services is provided to You at WRI's discretion, and may be terminated or restricted at any time.

Additional functionality in Mathematica allows You to access Wolfram|Alpha® data from within the Software. In addition to the general Online Services and Data terms and restrictions listed above, data and other results obtained through the Wolfram|Alpha functionality are subject to the Wolfram|Alpha Terms of Use. Your use of this functionality indicates Your acceptance of these terms.

Proprietary Rights

This Agreement does not grant Licensee any right, title, or interest in any intellectual property rights embodied in or associated with Mathematica or the Software, nor any right to copy, modify, loan, lease, or sublicense the Software. Under no circumstances may Licensee decompile the object code portion of the Software to a source code version.

Licensee agrees that lending, renting, sublicensing, decompiling, or otherwise allowing unauthorized copying, alteration, or use of the Software, whether or not such unauthorized use is intended or reasonably foreseeable, shall constitute contributory infringement of WRI's proprietary rights, including copyright and trade secret rights.

Limited Warranty and Disclaimer

WRI warrants that the Product shall be free from defects in the physical or download media for a period of ninety (90) days following the date of purchase when used under normal conditions. You acknowledge that WRI shall provide, as Your sole remedy for breach of this warranty, another copy of the physical media. The foregoing warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied.

WRI does not warrant that the Product is free from all errors and/or omissions, and in fact it may contain them. Except as specifically set forth above, the Product is provided "as is". WRI makes no representations or warranties, express, statutory, or implied, with respect to the Product or the Software or data accessed thereby, including, without limitation, any implied warranties of merchantability, interoperability, or fitness for a particular purpose, all of which are expressly disclaimed. WRI does not warrant that the functions contained in the Product will meet Your requirements or that the operation of the Product will be uninterrupted or error free.

WRI, and its agents, representatives, and independent contractors, shall not be obligated to provide or liable, under any circumstances, for providing information on or corrections to errors and/or omissions discovered at any time in the Product, whether or not they were aware of the errors and/or omissions.

WRI does not recommend the use of the Product for applications in which errors and/or omissions could threaten life, injury, or significant loss. Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so this may not apply to You. This warranty gives You specific legal rights, and You may also have other rights that vary from state to state. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Illinois in the United States of America without effect to any choice of law provisions.

Limited Damages

In no event shall WRI or its agents, representatives, and independent contractors be liable for any lost profits, lost use, lost benefits, or any consequential, indirect, incidental, special, or punitive damages, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, even if they have been advised of the possibility of such damages. WRI's cumulative liability to You or any other party for any loss or damages resulting from any claims, demands, actions, or otherwise arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall not exceed the license fee paid for the Product. Some states do not allow certain limitations of damages, so the above limitations may not apply to You.

Licensee may not assign or transfer any rights or obligations under this Agreement without prior written approval from WRI.

Notices must be sent via certified mail to the other party at the address set forth below, or such other address as a party may designate by notice in writing to the other.
