    Yahoo Axis Software License and Service Terms

    Welcome to Yahoo. Yahoo provides Yahoo Axis under these Software License and Service Terms (the “Terms”), which incorporate the Yahoo Terms of Service (“TOS”) set forth below.

    1. Acceptance of Terms

    Yahoo Axis is comprised of Software and Services, as those terms are used under the TOS. To use the Software and Services, you must agree to the Terms. You may not use the Software or Services if you do not accept the Terms. You accept the Terms (a) by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where Yahoo makes this option available to you in the user interface for the Software or Service; or (b) by actually using the Software or Services, in which case, you understand and agree that Yahoo will treat your use of the Software or Services as acceptance of the Terms. Yahoo may update these Terms from time to time without individual notice to you. You can review the most current version of these Terms by clicking the applicable links in Section 8, below.

    By accessing, using and continuing to use the Software or Services, you represent and warrant that you are permitted to do so under applicable law. You are solely responsible for using the Software or Services in compliance with any and all applicable law. If you are in a jurisdiction where download or use of the Software or Services is prohibited or restricted, or if you are below the applicable legal age required to use the Services, click “cancel” and do not download or use the Software or Services. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Software or Services will be subject to these Terms, which you agree to by continued use of the Services.

    2. Privacy Policy

    Your access to and use of the Services constitutes acceptance of, and is subject to, the Yahoo Privacy Policy. Your registration data and other information about you are also subject to the Yahoo Privacy Policy. You agree to the collection and use of your data or information about or related to you in accordance with the Yahoo Privacy Policy, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing and use by Yahoo or its affiliates. You can review the most current version of the Yahoo Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the Privacy Policy link in Section 8, below.

    3. Use of Software

    a. You may install or download and use Software, and any authorized updates provided by Yahoo, in object code form, on a device owned or controlled by you for your own personal, non-commercial use. You are only permitted to access the Services through the Software strictly as authorized in these Terms.

    b. If applicable, all Software provided to the U.S. Government pursuant to solicitations issued on or after December 1, 1995, is provided with the commercial rights and restrictions described herein. If the Services and related documentation are supplied to or purchased by or on behalf of the United States Government, if applicable, then the Services are deemed to be "commercial software" as that term is used in the Federal Acquisition Regulation system. Rights of the United States will not exceed the minimum rights set forth in FAR 52.227-19 for "restricted computer software." All other terms and conditions of these Terms apply.

    c. From time to time, Yahoo may automatically download the latest version of the Software or Services and notify you when it’s ready to install. If you wish to update the Software or Services, you must agree to the then current Terms.

    d. All rights not expressly granted to you under this Section are reserved by Yahoo or their respective third party licensors. These Terms grant you no right, title or interest in any intellectual property owned or licensed by Yahoo, including, without limitation, the Software, Services and Yahoo trademarks.

    4. Restrictions on Use

    You MUST NOT, and will not allow any third party to:

    a. Copy, decompile, reverse engineer, reverse assemble, disassemble, decrypt, modify, rent, lease, loan, distribute, or create derivative works (as defined by the U.S. Copyright Act) or improvements (as defined by U.S. patent law) to the Services or Software, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or protocols in the Services or Software;

    b. Obtain or attempt to obtain unauthorized access to the Services or the Yahoo network;

    c. Incorporate the Services or the Software, or any portion thereof, into any other service, software, hardware, or other technology manufactured or distributed by or for you;

    d. Use the Services in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with these Terms or the TOS;

    e. Sell, lease, loan, distribute, transfer, sublicense, reproduce, duplicate, copy, trade or exploit the Services or access thereto or derive income from the use or provision of the Services, whether for direct commercial or monetary gain or otherwise, without Yahoo's prior, express and written permission.

    5. Content

    The Software or Services may include links or access to other web sites, content, or resources. Yahoo may have no control over any web sites or resources, which are provided by companies or persons other than Yahoo. You acknowledge and agree that Yahoo is not responsible for the availability of any of these resources or external sites, and does not endorse any advertising, products or other materials on or available from these web sites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that Yahoo is not liable for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of the availability of those sites or resources, or as a result of any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy or existence of any advertising, products or other materials on, or available from, these web sites or resources.

    6. Suspension or Termination

    a. Yahoo may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Software or Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or content. Yahoo may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Yahoo Software or Services, without notice or liability. You acknowledge and agree that if Yahoo disables access to your account, you may be prevented from accessing the Services, your account details, or any files or other content contained in or associated with your account.

    b. Your license to the Software continues until it is terminated by either you or Yahoo. You may terminate the license to the Software by discontinuing use of and by destroying all copies of the Software. In addition, this Software license terminates if you violate any of these Terms, Yahoo publicly posts a written notice of termination on Yahoo's web site, Yahoo sends a written notice of termination to you, or by any other manner stated in the TOS. If your license terminates, you agree to cease any and all use of the Software and Services, their components, and any third-party data.

    7. General

    These Terms, including the TOS, and all documents incorporated within constitute the entire agreement between you and Yahoo as it relates to your use of Yahoo Axis, and supersedes any prior version of these Terms, if any, between you and Yahoo with respect to these Software and Services. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other Yahoo services (including charged services), affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software. These Terms will continue to govern your use of the Software and Services unless you agree to other terms with a Yahoo company that specifically state that they supersede the previously agreed version of the “Yahoo Axis Software License and Service Terms.” In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and the TOS, these Terms control.
