As used in this Agreement, "We" means EDailyNews, "You" means the applicant, "Site" means any means for viewing the links electronically, including, but not limited to World Wide Websites, intranets or extranets, "Links" means the links, headlines, source names, and associated data delivered by EDailyNews as a part of the Service, and "Publishers" refers to the creators of the articles to which we link.

1.3. The Service is a fee based service and is only available to organizations that have entered into a license agreement with EDailyNews; however, certain charitable organizations ("Charities") that have been approved by EDailyNews may be granted access to the Service free of charge. See 2.1 below

1.4. This Agreement does not apply to access to our Showcase News Portal which is governed by a separate and independent Terms and Conditions Agreement.

2. Use of Service.

2.1.
At EDailyNews's sole discretion, certain Charities may be granted use of the Service in any properties or applications, including web sites, intranets, extranets and software.

For purposes of this Agreement, Charities generally include organizations which are certified as tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code, registered as a charitable organization with the Charity Commission for England and Wales, or certified as a charitable organization under equivalent laws in other jurisdictions. Please note that governmental organizations and educational institutions are generally not considered to be Charities under this Agreement, unless otherwise expressly noted by EDailyNews.

To be considered for eligibility as a Charity, qualified applicants should complete this form and submit to EDailyNews for review. An applicant will only be deemed a Charity under this Agreement upon written approval of EDailyNews.

2.2.
You acknowledge that the Service contains links, descriptions and other material (collectively, the "Links") that are protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights of EDailyNews Technologies and third-party content providers.

2.3.
You may not modify any of the Links, in whole or part. Specifically, You must display the Links as headline hyperlinks that connect via a EDailyNews url to the corresponding full-text article on the site where the article is published. The Links will only display each headline during the day or days such headline appears on the Publisher's Site and You may not otherwise display such headlines on Your Site at any other time. You shall not be entitled to frame an article from a Publisher's Site or any part thereof within the Your Site and You shall ensure at all times that each of the Links on Your site, when clicked, will not open in a frame. You agree that You will at all times conspicuously designate the Publisher as the source of the news content.

2.4.
You may not copy, publish, transmit, reproduce, distribute, redistribute, display, or in any way exploit any of the Links, in whole or in part, except as expressly permitted in this Agreement.

2.5.
You may not sell, license, sublicense, assign, transfer or otherwise economically exploit any of the Links, in whole or in part, to any party regardless of that party's commercial status. If you are interested in reselling the Links, please contact Enterprise Sales at sales@EDailyNews.com .

2.6.
You may not use software programs to test the validity of the Links, or any other software programs that use the Links to view the original article of the Publisher, except as expressly permitted in this agreement or with prior written permission of EDailyNews.

2.7.
You may reproduce the Links on pages not powered directly by EDailyNews, provided, however that the text of the headline and the link through the EDailyNews domain remain unmodified, and the source attributed remains intact. You are not authorized to copy the text from any article, without the express permission of the Publisher.

2.8.
You may write commentary around the Links, and sell advertising on the page which contains the Links but you shall be solely liable if such commentary and/or advertising violates or infringes on the rights of any Publisher.

2.9.
The Links may not be used on Sites which We determine to be unsuitable. Unsuitable Sites include those that:

  • promote sexually explicit materials
  • promote violence and/or illegal activities
  • promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
  • modify the names of publishers or fail to give proper source attribution without publisher permission
  • otherwise violate intellectual property rights

2.10.
EDailyNews Intellectual Property.

a. The Links on the Service contain a link to the original publishers' sites via an intermediate link through the EDailyNews domain. You may not delete, disable, modify or hide this intermediate link to the EDailyNews Site without written permission from EDailyNews.
b. You must credit EDailyNews for use of the Service via a hyperlink to the EDailyNews web site at the bottom of any EDailyNews Links. If the service does not include a default hypertext link to the EDailyNews Site, you must attribute the credit by adding a EDailyNews logo link, available in our Media Kit. The logo should appear either directly above or below your EDailyNews Links, and should link viewers to http://www.EDailyNews.net

3.2.
The Service contains links to Sites on the Internet which are owned and operated by Publishers (the "External Sites"). You acknowledge that EDailyNews is not responsible for the availability of any External Site. You should contact the site administrator or Webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or the Links located on such External Sites.

3.3.
While we will make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the currency, accuracy and availability of the Service, we make no representation that the operation of the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free, and We will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors. You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your Site.

Further, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from all claims, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) relating to the use of the Service on your Site other than in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

3.5.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH STATES, THE LIABILITY OF EDailyNews, THE PUBLISHERS, THIRD PARTY LINKS PROVIDERS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENTS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

4. Reasonable Access.

In the interests of performance to EDailyNews's entire user base, you agree to access the Service a maximum of once an hour for any single feed via any method other than javascript via a referring page. If you are using a program that cycles through a list to grab more than one feed, there must additionally be at least 1 minute between each individual call to the Service.

EDailyNews reserves the right to block your access to the Service if you are using it in excess of this provision or otherwise unreasonably within the sole discretion of EDailyNews.

We may also choose to use commercially reasonable efforts to notify all users under this Agreement via any email addresses you provide to EDailyNews. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR CONTINUED UTILIZATION OF THE SERVICE FOLLOWING ANY CHANGE WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE.

5.2.
Termination of Service. EDailyNews reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to restrict, suspend or terminate your access to all or any part of Links on the Service at any time for any reason without prior notice or liability.
