Your LocaleData Account
If you use our Services, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and projects, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the projects. You must not use your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and LocaleData may change or remove any account or project that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause LocaleData liability. You must immediately notify LocaleData of any unauthorized uses of your project, your account, or any other breaches of security. LocaleData will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Responsibility of Contributors
If you manage a project, contribute to a project or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, "Content") you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
- the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
- if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
- you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
- the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
- the Content is not spam, is not machine or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
- the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
- your project is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
- your project is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company; and
- you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by LocaleData or otherwise.
By submitting Content to LocaleData for inclusion on your project, you grant LocaleData a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your project.
If you delete Content, LocaleData will use reasonable efforts to remove it from LocaleData, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, LocaleData has the right (though not the obligation) to, in LocaleData’s sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or project due to prolonged inactivity, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in LocaleData’s reasonable opinion, violates any LocaleData policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of LocaleData to any individual or entity for any reason. LocaleData will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Payment and Renewal
General Terms. Optional paid services may be available (any such services, an “Upgrade”). By selecting an Upgrade you agree to pay LocaleData the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for an Upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated. These fees are not refundable.
Automatic Renewal. Unless you notify LocaleData before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Upgrades can be canceled at any time.
Responsibility of Visitors

You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our Services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors.
