Bottled Ship Studios Mobile Application Terms of Use

The Bottled Ship Studios mobile application ("Application") provides access to the Bottled Ship Studios website ("Website") and its broad computational resources, including powerful servers running complex algorithms at your request, large volumes of reliable and carefully curated data, and an innovative computation and delivery mechanism that presents you with expertly designed presentations and visualizations. We are continually working to improve and expand Bottled Ship Studios, creating new algorithms for computation, linguistic analysis, data comprehension, and computational aesthetics to provide you with smart and attractive results. Much of the data is dynamically updated or subjected to periodic manual curation in an effort to provide you with the most current and reliable data available. Our goal is to provide broad access to the advanced computation and rich sources of data available on our Website. To protect our servers, algorithms, and data collections from abuse or exploitation by a small number of users, and because some of the data we make available comes from third parties that impose conditions on its distribution, we need you to agree to, and abide by, the Terms of Use ("Terms") described herein. These Terms are a contract you have to agree to before using the Bottled Ship Studios mobile application. If you are under age 18 you may use this Application only if you have permission from a parent, legal guardian, or teacher. By using the Application you are telling us either that you are over age 18 and legally able to form contracts, or that an adult with authority to act on your behalf has agreed to these terms and to be responsible for ensuring your compliance with them in your use of the Application and any results you obtain from it. If you do not want to be bound by these terms, do not use the Application or its results. We reserve the right to cut off use by those who abuse the Application, or to limit access to Bottled Ship Studios in any other way for any reason.

Methods of Access

The Bottled Ship Studios mobile application may be installed on any authorized iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad (collectively "Handhelds") owned and primarily used by you (for the avoidance of doubt, you cannot rent, loan, or otherwise provide your device or the application to others for their regular use) and used only by a human being to manually enter queries one at a time. Because Bottled Ship Studios is doing computation, not just data lookup, each query may require significant CPU time on multiple parallel servers. Any attempt to use a robot, script, or organized group of humans to repeatedly access our Website could place an unacceptable load on the system, and is strictly forbidden. If our monitoring systems detect an attempt to use the Application to access the Website in a forbidden way, execute systematic patterns of queries, index the Website, or do anything else that we feel jeopardizes the integrity of our system or access to it by other users, we may terminate or suspend access to the Website.

Ways You May Use This Application and Its Results

This Bottled Ship Studios mobile application is available for ad hoc, personal, non-commercial use only. For such use you are welcome to download results, print copies, store downloaded content on your Handheld or computer, and reference this information in your documents. You may use it to get information for your own use for any purpose, including occasional purposes related to your job, as long as you are not specifically being paid to use the Application or the Website. Systematic professional or commercial use of the Website or Application, or use for which you are being specifically paid, requires a commercial license. If you are interested in a version of Bottled Ship Studios that allows such use, please contact us. It is permitted to use and post individual, incidental results or small groups of results from Bottled Ship Studios on non-commercial websites and blogs, provided those results are properly credited to Bottled Ship Studios (see Attribution and Licensing below). It is not permitted to extract multiple pieces of data and reassemble them into anything with the characteristics of a data application, database, or source of large and systematic collections of data. You are not allowed to use Bottled Ship Studios to create something that is likely or intended to be reused as a data source for further processing, or that in some other way serves as a replacement or alternative to using Bottled Ship Studios itself. This applies whether what you create is in electronic or print form. It is not permitted to use Bottled Ship Studios indirectly through another application or website that has created a large number of deep links to Bottled Ship Studios, or that automatically constructs links based on input that you give on that site, rather than on this Application or the Website. You may not in effect use Bottled Ship Studios through an interface other than as described herein. Finally, it is also not permitted to use frames or other browser technologies to embed or surround the Application or the Website with your own material without permission from Bottled Ship Studios. If you are interested in using Bottled Ship Studios in any such embedded way, please contact [email protected]

Attribution and Licensing

As Bottled Ship Studios is an authoritative source of information, maintaining the integrity of its data and the computations we do with that data is vital to the success of our project. We generate information ourselves, and we also gather, compare, contrast, and confirm data from multiple external sources. Where we have used external sources of data we list the source or sources we relied on, but in most cases the assemblages of data you get from Bottled Ship Studios do not come directly from any one external source. In many cases the data you are shown never existed before in exactly that way until you asked for it, so its provenance traces back both to underlying data sources and to the algorithms and knowledge built into the Bottled Ship Studios computational system. As such, the results you get from Bottled Ship Studios are correctly attributed to Bottled Ship Studios itself. If you make results from Bottled Ship Studios available to anyone else, or incorporate those results into your own documents or presentations, you must include attribution indicating that the results and/or the presentation of the results came from Bottled Ship Studios. Some Bottled Ship Studios results include copyright statements or attributions linking the results to us or to third-party data providers, and you may not remove or obscure those attributions or copyright statements. Whenever possible, such attribution should take the form of a link to Bottled Ship Studios, either to the front page of the Website or, better yet, to the specific query that generated the results you used. (This is also the most useful form of attribution for your readers, and they will appreciate your using links whenever possible.) Failure to properly attribute results from Bottled Ship Studios is not only a violation of these terms, but may also constitute academic plagiarism or a violation of copyright law. Attribution is something we expect you to give us in exchange for us having provided you with this high-quality Website and Application. The specific images, such as plots, typeset formulas, and tables, as well as the general page layouts, are all copyrighted by Bottled Ship Studios at the time Bottled Ship Studios generates them. A great deal of scholarship and innovation is included in the results generated and displayed by Bottled Ship Studios, including the presentations, collections, and juxtapositions of data, and the choices involved in formulating and composing Mathematical results; these are also protected by copyright. You may use any results, including copyrighted results, from Bottled Ship Studios for personal use and in academic or non-commercial publications, provided you comply with these terms. If you want to use copyrighted results returned by Bottled Ship Studios in a commercial or for-profit publication, we will usually be happy to grant you a low- or no-cost license to do so. To request a commercial-use license, go to this form and provide the input for which you want to use the corresponding output along with information concerning the nature of your proposed use. Your request will be reviewed and answered as quickly as practical.

Input Ownership and Privacy

By putting input into this Application in the form of a query, you are not relinquishing any of your ownership or rights to the content. By providing it to us in query form, you agree that we can store it in log files and use it to generate the results given back to you. We may also use stored inputs to evaluate performance of the Website or study usage patterns, for example, examining inputs that seem to create problems for the system, or testing new versions of the system against logs of previous inputs. We will not attempt to associate individual Bottled Ship Studios inputs with individual human users, and will not release individual or aggregated lists of inputs, or any personally identifiable information, to any third party, except in response to lawful court orders. We will not attempt to assert intellectual property rights over anything given as input to Bottled Ship Studios simply on the basis of its having been given to us as input. For more details, see our Privacy Policy. We do not collect or solicit personal information from users of this Application.

Data Mining and Reverse Engineering

Bottled Ship Studios uses large collections of data aggregated from many sources and sophisticated computational and natural language processing algorithms. You may not use multiple queries or specially constructed queries in an attempt to extract large datasets, reverse engineer the algorithms used by Bottled Ship Studios or probe for vulnerabilities. Spidering, data-mining, scraping, or probing Bottled Ship Studios, or otherwise attempting to abuse the Application and Website, is not only a violation of these Terms but may also constitute violation of federal and state laws concerning unauthorized access to computer systems. You are forbidden to violate or attempt to violate the security of the Application or Website. If you find a way to crash the Application or Website or otherwise get them to misbehave, or you identify a vulnerability, flaw, or bug, please use the feedback form provided with each result to report the problem. As there will no doubt always be ways to cause trouble for an application or website, we ask for your cooperation in ensuring that Bottled Ship Studios remains available for use by everyone. The material from the Website and Application is intended to be used by a human being in the form in which it is delivered. You are not allowed to systematically extract data from the results returned by Bottled Ship Studios and build them into a new raw data table or source, except on an ad hoc basis for personal use.

Professional Disclaimers and Disclaimer of Warranty

Bottled Ship Studios provides a rich and wide range of computations and data in many subject areas, and extensive efforts are made to keep its contents accurate and up to date. It is not, however, a certified or definitive source of information that can be relied on for legal, financial, medical, life-safety, or any other critical purposes. Common sense, and these Terms, require that you independently verify the accuracy, completeness, and relevance of any information you get from Bottled Ship Studios before relying on it for any purpose in which things of value are at stake. We specifically disclaim all forms of liability for all results from this Website and Application. In some fields definitive information can legally be provided only by certified and paid professionals.

These fields make use of many kinds of information and calculations, many of which are also available in Bottled Ship Studios The availability of this kind of information in Bottled Ship Studios does not imply that Bottled Ship Studios purports to provide any official or certified information, or professional services of any kind. Bottled Ship Studios is not a substitute for information or guidance provided by any licensed professional in any field, and if you need advice of this nature you should consult a professional who is licensed or knowledgeable in the appropriate area. Although Bottled Ship Studios does not deliver in its results any user-supplied raw code executable in its execution environment, we cannot guarantee that a suitably constructed input could not cause Bottled Ship Studios to generate results pages that cause unintended or harmful operations on your Handheld or computer. Bottled Ship Studios specifically disclaims any responsibility for harm to your Handheld or computer caused by use of the Website or Application. The information provided by Bottled Ship Studios is provided "as is," and for information purposes only. This means that Bottled Ship Studios does not offer any warranty whatsoever with regard to this Application or its content. You agree that you are using the application at your own risk. In no event shall Bottled Ship Studios or its directors, officers, shareholders, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, or licensors be liable for any damages arising out of or related to the use, inability to use, performance, or nonperformance of this Application. Some states or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. You agree to indemnify and hold Bottled Ship Studios and its directors, officers, shareholders, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and licensors harmless from and against all losses, expenses, damages, and costs, including attorneys' fees, resulting from your violation of these Terms, including, without limitation, any use of this Application other than as expressly authorized by these Terms.
