Section 4: Special License Restrictions For Non-Human Visitors

Non-Human Visitors are prohibited from taxing the resources of the Website beyond what would be typical of a human visitor using a web browser.

U.S. courts have acknowledged that users of "scrapers" or "robots" may be held liable for committing trespass to chattels, which involves a computer system itself being considered personal property upon which the user of a scraper is trespassing.

Some actions of Non-Human Visitors are crimes.

  1. Actions can be classified as as a felony under Chapter 815.01-815.07 of Florida Statutes.
  2. Where applicable incidents will be classified by 18 U.S. Code ยง 1030
  3. Criminal penalities may also apply based on the location of the servers used by non-human visitors.

You further agree that the compilation, storage, and potential distribution of these addresses by Non-Human Visitors substantially diminish the value of these addresses. Intentional collection, harvesting, gathering, or storing email addresses by Non-Human Visitors is recognized under this agreement as a violation of this agreement and expressly prohibited.
