Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, Cengage Learning hereby grants you, for the licence term specified on your Order or otherwise disclosed as part of the ordering process ("Licence Term") unless terminated as provided herein, a limited, non-sublicencable, nontransferable licence to use for your own personal, noncommercial use (subject to the restrictions noted below) the Online Content obtained by you through the Service. These Terms of Service do not convey to you an interest in or to the Online Content, but only a limited right of Service revocable in accordance with the terms hereof. You shall not, except as expressly provided for herein: (i) remove any proprietary notices and/or language from the Online Content; (ii) sell, distribute, download, or publicly display the Online Content to anyone, including but not limited to others in your organisation, without our express prior written consent, which may be withheld for any reason; or (iii) make any modifications to the Online Content. The Online Content may contain or be accompanied by digital rights management technology or similar security technology designed to protect digital information against piracy and other misuse. You acknowledge and agree that such technology is not a defect in the Online Content. Such technology is designed to restrict your access to and usage of the Online Content as follows:

  • The licence and access to Online Content obtained by you is limited in duration to two years unless a different Licence Term is specified in your Order. The Online Content may contain embedded time clocks or similar security devices that disable your ability to access and use the Online Content after the expiration of the Licence Term, even if the Online Content is stored locally/offline.
  • Online Content obtained through the Service may be accessed by you from two computers at any time. If you try to access any such Online Content from a third computer, you will be denied access unless you "deauthorise" one of your two previously authorised computers.
  • The Online Content cannot be forwarded to and/or shared with others.
  • Standard "right-click" mouse functions may be disabled, so that Online Content you are viewing online cannot be copied, pasted or saved as another file.
  • If the Online Content has a corresponding print version, such Online Content is functionally equivalent to its corresponding print version. However, in some cases, individual items have been removed for ease of internet delivery.

You must not circumvent, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise tamper with any of the security technology contained in or accompanying the Online Content. Such security technology is provided in part by our suppliers and vendors. From time to time, the Software you use to download Online Content may directly connect to an internet site operated by us or one of our suppliers in order to upgrade the security technology contained in or accompanying the Online Content. By registering for, using, and/or by downloading Online Content from the Site, you acknowledge and consent to the use of such security technology and the automatic upgrading of such security technology.

Portions of the Online Content may include items provided by our Affiliates, and you grant to such Affiliates the right to protect their interests under these Terms of Service and agree that such Affiliates are benefited by the provisions of these Terms of Service.
