1. Usage License

C. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “automated bookmark systems or software,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., that access the website in a manner that sends more request messages to Article Ted’s servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Article Ted grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials thereon, but not caches or archives of such materials.

2. User Responsibility
You are solely responsible for your use of the Site and Services. Because Article Ted merely serves as a repository of information, user-posted content does not represent the advice, views, opinions or beliefs of Article Ted, and Article Ted makes no claim of accuracy of any user-posted material. Article Ted allows for the posting of links to third-party websites. The linked websites’ content, business practices and privacy policies are not under our control, and we are not responsible for the content of any linked website or any link contained in a linked website. The inclusion of a link on the Site or Services does not imply any endorsement by or any affiliation with Article Ted. In accessing the Site and Services or following links to third-party websites you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive or inappropriate. You agree that your only recourse is to stop using the Site and Services.
By posting content, you are granting permission to us and others to access and use it in connection with the Services, the Site and otherwise in connection with our business. You can mark content as private to restrict access and use to those users to whom you explicitly grant access. For publicly accessible content, you can label your compilations with one of several possible licenses. It is important to note that you can only copyright the compilation itself, not the individual links that make up the compilation. Please also note that just because your compilation does not have a license agreement attached to it does not mean that it is public domain. For a compilation to be classified as such, it must be explicitly labeled as belonging to the public domain. Your use of a license in connection with your compilation does not affect Article Ted’s right to access and use it in connection with the Services, the Site or otherwise in connection with our business. Article Ted will save your bookmarks and other information (together the “Contents”) for you and will provide you access thereto. You will be solely responsible for your posted Contents. In connection with your Contents, you agree that you will not: (1.) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material; (2.) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Article Ted or any third party; (3.) submit links or bookmarks that are unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (4.) post advertisements or solicitations of business: (5.) offer or provide services whose subject matter is pornographic. The same applies to sending Emails. Likewise, reference to political activities, political party meetings, demonstrations, fliers or petitions, as well as the propagation of political symbols is prohibited. Furthermore, Contents which insult, belittle, or in other negative ways affect other users or members are also prohibited. If you violate any of these restrictions, Article Ted is authorized to deny or delete your Content, delete your web-account pages and their links, and/or cancel your account without prior notice. Article Ted may do so in its sole discretion without any obligation to investigate. You will be liable to Article Ted for all direct and indirect damages for any violation of the above mentioned restrictions. You agree to indemnify Article Ted from all claims by third party resulting from your violation of the above restrictions.
