2. User Responsibility
You are solely responsible for your use of historious. Because historious merely serves as a repository of information, user-posted content does not represent the advice, views, opinions or beliefs of Stochastic Technologies, and historious makes no claim of accuracy of any user-posted material. historious allows for the posting of links to and content of third-party websites. The linked websites' content, business practices and privacy policies are not under the control of historious, and historious is not responsible for the content of any linked or retrieved website or any link contained in a linked website. The inclusion of a link on historious does not imply any endorsement by or any affiliation with historious. In accessing historious 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 historious. In posting or authorizing the retrieval of the content of websites on historious, you agree that you have authorization to do so. You understand that posting or instructing historious to retrieve unauthorized conent, or the creation of bookmarks in historious for purposes of specifically boosting exposure of a site in historious and/or search engines is a breach of these historious Terms, that historious views such entries as spam and that historious reserves the right to take appropriate action to restrict such entries up to and including termination of your access to historious. historious may delete the content or account of inactive ("inactive" meaning users who have not logged in to their account for a period of more than a month), non-paying users, with no prior notice.
3. User-Posted Content
By posting content, you are granting permission to historious and others to access and use it in connection with historious and otherwise in connection with its affiliates' businesses. In the case of third-party content, you affirm that you have the appropriate permission to duplicate that content. 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 content with one of several possible licenses. Your use of a license in connection with your content does not affect historious' right to access and use it in connection with historious or otherwise in connection with its affiliates' businesses.
historious does not provide legal services, and therefore, providing you with the ability to attach a license agreement to your compilation of links does not create an attorney-client relationship. The license agreements and all related information are provided on an "as is" basis. historious makes no warranties whatsoever regarding the license agreements and the information provided, and disclaims all liability for damages, including without limitation, any general, special, incidental or consequential damages, resulting from their use. historious will include this license label in making your content accessible to others, but any enforcement of your chosen license terms remains your sole responsibility.
historious is explicitly not responsible for the manner or circumstances by which third parties access or use public content and is under no obligation to disable or otherwise restrict this access. historious provides you with the ability to retrieve and remove your posted content and your personal information from historious. This ability does not extend to copies that others may have made or to copies that historious may have made for backup purposes.
4. Feeds and API
historious provides access to portions of historious via RSS feeds and an API; for the purposes of these historious Terms, such access constitutes use of historious. historious asks that you use these features respectfully, as outlined in the documentation. You may not use these or any other features or historious itself to allow the display of a substantial portion of the historious database or reproduce, duplicate or copy historious. historious reserves the right to change these features at any time and to disable access to the feeds and the API at any time for any reason.

HISTORIOUS PROVIDES THE SITE AND SERVICES "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY. HISTORIOUS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, INFORMATION ACCURACY, INTEGRATION, INTEROPERABILITY OR QUIET ENJOYMENT. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.
You understand and agree that you use historious at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damages that arise from such use. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL HISTORIOUS OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (HOWEVER ARISING, INCLUDING BY NEGLIGENCE), INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES RELATED TO USE, MISUSE, RELIANCE ON, INABILITY TO USE AND INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, OR TERMINATION OF THE SITE OR SERVICES, DAMAGES INCURRED THROUGH ANY LINKS PROVIDED ON THE SITE AND THE NONPERFORMANCE THEREOF AND DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, SALES, DATA, GOODWILL OR PROFITS, WHETHER OR NOT HISTORIOUS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF SUCH POSSIBILITY. YOUR ONLY RIGHT WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISSATISFACTION WITH HISTORIOUS SHALL BE TO TERMINATE USE OF HISTORIOUS. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions may not apply to you.
historious and you are independent entities, and nothing in the historious Terms, or via use of historious, will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between historious and you.
These historious Terms supersede any previous agreement related to your use of historious and represent the entire agreement between historious and you with regard to your use of historious. These historious Terms are governed by the laws of the United Kingdom without reference to conflict of laws principles. If any provision of the historious Terms is adjudged to be illegal or unenforceable, the continuation in full force of the remainder of the historious Terms will not be prejudiced, and the illegal or unenforceable provision of the historious Terms shall be severed accordingly. Any notices may be sent to historious in English at historious' support address.
