WRI is the sole owner of the Product with the exception of the portions licensed by WRI from third-party owners. WRI is the holder of the Intellectual Property Rights in the Product, including, without limitation, such aspects of the Software as its code, structure, sequence, organization, "look and feel", programming language and compilations of command names, descriptors and data. Use of the Product, unless pursuant to the terms of a license granted by WRI or as otherwise authorized by law, is an infringement of Intellectual Property Rights.

Notwithstanding the obligation to provide acknowledgment stated above, no other right to use the names, marks or other distinctions of the Product or WRI is granted.

General Use and Restrictions

Subject to Your acceptance of and compliance with the terms of this Agreement, the Mathematica License Agreement, and any relevant Site License, WRI grants You a non-exclusive license to use the Software to integrate Mathematica and the Wolfram Language into one or more specific-use Public Internet Sites by linking Your 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 Your 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 You receive 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 You to present to Users 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.

You 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

You may not create a Site in which Users can type in arbitrary, open-ended calculation requests, in any syntax or means of specification, and have those requests carried out by the Software. In addition, You 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, You may not offer Your Users through multiple Sites a level of functionality that would violate this Agreement if offered through a single Site. In no event may You allow Users to bypass such restrictions or otherwise access the Software directly.

You may not replicate, in whole or in part, the "look and feel" of Mathematica with Your Interface(s). Your 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 Your Interface(s) among Users of Your Site(s). 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, You agree 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. You will provide telephone numbers and email addresses for each such person. It is Your 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.

You agree to include a graphic and web link, supplied by WRI and including the phrase "Powered by webMathematica", on all Site pages that supply input to or receive output from the Software. This graphic and link shall appear in reasonably close proximity to the input or output displays. In addition, You agree to permit WRI to use the name and/or URL of Your Site(s) in promotional materials.

Inspection of Sites

When a Site becomes available to Users, You agree 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, WRI will suggest remedies 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 You to implement appropriate remedies, WRI reserves the right to terminate this Agreement with ten (10) days' notice to You.

You agree that ongoing operation of an unlicensed or nonconforming Site would cause WRI irreparable harm. You agree 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 Your affected Site was rendered inaccessible to Users, regardless of the status of the Agreement.

Online Services and Data

Certain Product functionality may require the Software to access collections of data available through external servers. WRI makes no warranty that access to such data will be uninterrupted or that the data itself will be error free. WRI reserves the right to restrict access to, add, update, modify or remove collections of data based on availability, Your service subscription or otherwise at WRI's discretion. You agree all data access and use shall be limited per the Specific Use Restrictions above, and agree not to access or use data collections in such a manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the servers providing such data. You agree to only access collections of data through the intended Software interface. Data provided through WRI's online 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 User or other third party, or provided or distributed through any database services containing all or part of such data. Access to the online services is provided to You at WRI's discretion, and may be terminated or restricted at any time.
