Welcome! The following terms govern your use of DataMask by AOL software, applications and services (“Applications”). You may use the Applications only if you agree to these terms.
BY INSTALLING OR USING THE APPLICATIONS, YOU SIGNIFY THAT YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS (THE "AGREEMENT" or “LICENSE”).
This license has the same legal effect as an agreement in writing. If you do not agree, do not install, copy or use the Applications.
1. APPLICATIONS. AOL Inc., SentryBay Corporation and their affiliates and suppliers ("we" or "us") provide the Applications to you under the terms of this Agreement. In this Agreement, we use the term “you” or “your” to mean you as an individual or such entity in whose behalf you act, if any. We may discontinue or change any feature of the Applications at any time and without notice.
2. TERMS. This Agreement plus (a) any supplemental terms posted below and (b) any additional terms that accompany any specific feature, Application or upgrade collectively govern your use of the Applications. We may modify this License if we offer and you accept the download of any new features or updates for the Applications.
3. OWNERSHIP. This is a license of the Applications, not a sale. The Applications and any content and services provided via the Applications are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and by international treaties. We, our licensors and suppliers own all rights in the Applications. Your rights to use the Applications are specified in this Agreement and we retain and reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
4. RIGHT TO USE. During the term of this Agreement, we grant you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicenseable and non-transferable right to install and use one copy of the Application on one computing device for personal and internal business purposes. Each device would require a separate license from us.
5. RESTRICTIONS. You may not: (i) make any copies of the Applications other than the copy that you need to operate the Applications on your devices, (ii) modify or create any derivative works of the Applications; (iii) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms of the Applications, or in any way ascertain, decipher, or obtain the communications protocols for accessing our networks; (iv) use the Applications to develop software or services that access the address space of the Applications or that intercept the proxy; (v) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any of our or our suppliers', licensors’, and distributors' services, accounts, computer systems or networks associated with the Applications; (vi) resell, lease, sublicense or otherwise attempt to transfer rights to the Applications; (vii) remove or alter any trademark, logo, copyright or other proprietary notices, legends, symbols or labels in the Applications; (vii) block, disable, or otherwise affect any advertising, advertisement banner window, tabs, links to other sites and services, or other features that constitute an integral part of the Applications; (ix) incorporate, integrate or otherwise include all or any portion of any of the Applications (including the communications protocols) into any software, program or product that communicates, accesses, or otherwise connects with our services or that interconnects any of our services with any other instant messaging or other online service; (x) use any of our services associated with the Applications in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair such services or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of them; (xi) use the Applications in any way that violates this Agreement or any law; (xii) use the Applications in any way that violates the rights of any third party; (xiii) use the Applications in any way to transmit, directly or indirectly, any unsolicited bulk communications (such e-mails, voice, photos, video, chat or SPIM instant messages); or (xiv) assist any third party to do any of the things described in this paragraph.
We may take any actions or apply any technical remedies to prevent unsolicited bulk communications, viruses or other harmful code from entering, utilizing, or remaining within our computer or communications networks.
7. REGISTRATION. You will need to register with us in order to access and use the Applications. You will need some form of log-in credential authorized by us, such as a username or authorized e-mail address (“User ID”), so that you can access your account. You agree that the AOL Lifestore Terms of Service apply to you when you make a purchase of the Applications. You can get a User ID at www.aol.com or www.aim.com. You must agree to abide by the terms and conditions that apply to your use of your User ID and any interactive online service that you elect to use with the Applications.
8. ACCESS. You must provide at your own expense the equipment, Internet connections and wireless devices or wireless services to access and use the Applications and the products associated with such Applications. We do not guarantee that the Applications will work with all wireless devices or wireless service plans, at all times, or in all geographic locations. When you use the Applications, you may incur certain charges from your wireless carrier according to the terms of your carrier agreement, including without limitation, standard fees for data, messaging and wireless access, SMS and MMS messaging services. Please check with your carrier to verify whether there are any such fees that may apply to you. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COSTS YOU INCUR TO ACCESS OR USE THE APPLICATIONS THROUGH YOUR WIRELESS DEVICE.
9. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES. You are responsible for:
(a) All activities that occur as a result of the use of the Applications through your User ID and devices;
(b) Maintaining the confidentiality of any User ID, passwords or log-in credentials;
(c) Taking reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to confidential information stored in your mobile phone or other wireless device; and
(d) Complying with this Agreement and with any and all applicable laws.
You must notify your wireless carrier immediately if your mobile phone is lost or stolen. We cannot be responsible for what happens if your account information (such as stored User IDs and passwords) becomes known to someone else.
10. SUGGESTIONS. You agree that we may, without limitation and for no compensation, use in any manner all comments, suggestions, complaints and other feedback you provide relating to the Applications.
11. YOUR REPRESENTATIONS. You represent and warrant that you have adequate legal capacity to enter into this Agreement, that you will use the Applications only for lawful purposes, that you will not violate the rights of others or the terms of this Agreement.
12. AUTOMATED UPDATES. We may, but we are under no obligation to, provide updates, patches and fixes (collectively, “Updates”). You may be given the opportunity to choose whether you want all Updates delivered automatically or if you would prefer to be notified when a new Update is ready to be installed, or when we make such Updates available for download. You authorize us to deliver automatically any Update if we believe it is necessary to provide for the continued functionality of the Applications. Your use of the Updates will be governed by this Agreement unless you are asked to agree to new or additional terms at the time of download or installation.
13. PERFORMANCE AND USAGE INFORMATION.
(a) TECHNICAL INFORMATION. Most of the Applications are configured to report back information automatically relating to computer errors arising in connection with use of the Applications, without notice to you. Information on your Applications’ configuration settings may be included. We use these data to diagnose and improve the Applications.
(b) FEATURE USAGE INFORMATION. The Applications may also provide us with anonymous information about use of the Applications’ features. We use this information in the aggregate to improve the Applications and determine which Application features and buttons are most popular and useful to its users.
(c) PERSONALIZATION. You may be asked to provide us with certain information so that we can personalize content presented to you through the Applications. For example, you may be asked for your zip code, which could be used to provide you with relevant local weather and/or news reports.
14. THIRD PARTY OFFERINGS. Your use of any third-party plug-in applications is at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for your use of such plug-ins, and we have no obligation to correct errors or provide Updates for third party applications.
15. TERMINATION. This Agreement automatically terminates if you fail to comply with any of its terms. We may terminate this Agreement and/or the License granted to you under this Agreement at any time in our sole discretion. You may discontinue use of the Applications at your discretion. Upon termination, you must stop all use of the Applications and must destroy all copies of the Applications that are in your possession. All provisions of this Agreement, except for the license grant in Section 3 above, survive the termination of this Agreement.
16. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. You agree that your breach or threatened breach of this Agreement will cause us irreparable injury for which recovery of money damages would be inadequate and that we, therefore, may obtain timely injunctive relief to protect our rights under this Agreement in addition to any and all other remedies available to us at law or in equity.
17. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.
WE AND OUR DISTRIBUTORS PROVIDE THE APPLICATIONS “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS. WE AND OUR DISTRIBUTORS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE APPLICATIONS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR WILL BE ERROR-FREE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY, EFFORT AND COST OF ANY SERVICE AND REPAIR IS WITH YOU.
WE, OUR SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS DISCLAIM ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INTERFERENCE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR ACCURACY, UNLESS SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LEGALLY INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION.
IN ADDITION WE specifically disclaim any representation or warranty for the amount of performance increase or utility provided by the Applications. THE APPLICATIONS will not necessarily increase performance or provide a utility benefit on your computer, and WE MAKE no claim of specific deficiency, defect, or underperformance with respect to your computer. Any claims of performance increases or utility made for THE APPLICATIONS are those of possible or potential improvement or utility, and no representation or warranty is offered that a specific utility or amount of performance increase, if any, will be realized on any particular computer. Each computer is different and the scenarios under which they are used are different, and no claim is made that any one computer or usage scenario shall result in any performance increase or utility benefit from THE APPLICATIONS.
NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY US SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF ANY WARRANTY THAT CANNOT BE DISCLAIMED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. WE, OUR SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS HAVE NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE APPLICATIONS.
IF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY MAY NOT BE DISCLAIMED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THEN SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE YOU ACQUIRED THE APPLICATIONS FROM US OR OUR AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR.
18. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
You can recover from us and our third-party suppliers only direct damages up to the greater of the amount that you paid for the Applications or U.S. $5.00.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR ANY CORPORATE PARENT, SUCCESSORS, AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, AGENTS OR DISTRIBUTORS (COLLECTIVELY, "PROVIDERS ") BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. AOL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF CONTENT PROVIDED BY YOU OR A THIRD PARTY THAT IS ACCESSED THROUGH THE APPLICATIONS AND/OR ANY MATERIAL LINKED THROUGH SUCH CONTENT.
19. NO SUPPORT OR UPGRADE OBLIGATIONS. Except as provided below, you agree that you are not entitled to any support, telephone assistance, corrections, Updates, upgrades, bug fixes and/or enhancements of the Applications from us or our distributors.

21. HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES. The Applications are not fault-tolerant and are not designed, manufactured or intended for use in environments in which their failure could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, or weapons systems ("High Risk Activities"). ACCORDINGLY, WE AND OUR SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS AND DISTRIBUTORS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES. YOU AGREE THAT THE AOL WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS OR DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE APPLICATIONS IN SUCH HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES.
22. U.S. GOVERNMENT END-USERS. The Applications are a "commercial item," as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. § 2.101, consisting of "commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. § 12.212 (Sept. 1995) and 48 C.F.R. § 227.7202 (June 1995).

We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
25. CHOICE OF LAW AND LOCATION FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES. You agree that the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that you may have against us, without regard to Virginia’s conflict of laws rules, and that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will have no applicability.
