Terms of use and end user license agreement for wips.Com extensions and add-ons ("extension service").


Please read the following agreement and privacy policy carefully before downloading and using the extension service software. If you download and use this software, you will be bound by the terms of this agreement, including the privacy policy.


Note: all terms apply both to the extension service as well as to the wips.Com website(s), where applicable.


Acceptance of terms


This agreement governs your use of wips.Com's software, website, and information.


Wips.com Internet Corp. ("Wips.com") offers free downloadable software ("Wips.com extensions and add-ons" or "Extension service") that allows users to receive enhanced information about Web pages, websites and products while browsing the Web. Wips.com's software, the information provided by Wips.com through its own website and from third parties, and any other Wips.com product or service is referred to collectively as the "Service."


Any person who wishes to use Wips.com's Service must agree to the terms and conditions of this Website Terms of Use and End User License Agreement, which includes the Wips.com Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Agreement"), as well as all other policies and guidelines incorporated by reference in this Agreement. The Agreement is a binding agreement between you and Wips.com.


By downloading or installing, registering for, or using the service, you agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this agreement and all policies and guidelines incorporated by reference. Please read this agreement carefully. If you do not wish to be bound by this agreement, do not indicate your acceptance, and do not use wips.Com's service.

Changes to this agreement

Wips.Com may change any of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement, including the privacy policy and other policies and guidelines governing the service, at any time in its sole discretion. Notice of material changes to this agreement will be posted on wips.Com's website or on the service before they become effective. You are responsible for reviewing the notice and any applicable changes.


You agree that your continued use of the service following any changes to this agreement and after the changes take effect will constitute your acceptance of such changes.


If you do not agree to future changes to this agreement, do not continue to use the service after the effective date of such changes and uninstall all wips.Com software.

Anonymous information collected and stored by Wips.com service

For more details about Wips.com's anonymous data collection and data use practices, see Wips.com's Privacy Policy, which is a part of this Agreement.

Making Websites Invisible to Wips.com

Wips.com believes that persons who make information available on the Web do so with the expectation that such information will be publicly and widely available and will be indexed by information location tools such as search engines. Wips.com further believes that making links to publicly accessible Web pages available from our Service is legally permissible and consistent with the common, customary expectations of those who make use of the Web.


If access to a particular website is restricted, we may remove the link to that site from the Service at the site operator's request. If, however, the operator of the site does not take steps to prevent it, the automatic software used to create Wips.com's Service is likely to find it and index it again. For instructions for configuring a site to make it "invisible" to Wips.com's automatic indexing software, please contact us on info@wips.com.

User and other third party content

"Reviews" are postings authored by you or another user of the Service through the "Reviews Feature" on Wips.com's Services. You are responsible for anything you post in any Review. All Reviews must be accurate and truthful. You may not post in any Review material that you know or reasonably should know to be false or materially misleading, or that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, abusive, harassing, threatening, or otherwise objectionable, or that is solely commercial in nature, or that invades a person's privacy, infringes another person's intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates any law or regulation.


Wips.com is not responsible for, and does not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of, any opinion, advice, statement, recommendation or other information included in any Review posted on the Service. Any reliance by you on any such opinion, advice, statement, recommendation or other information in a Review shall be at your sole risk.


Without limiting the foregoing, Wips.com retains the right but not obligation in its absolute and sole discretion to screen, edit, or delete any Review or other content displayed, uploaded to, distributed, or otherwise published through the Service and to prevent or restrict access to the Service for any reason, including to purge Reviews, or take any other action to restrict access to or availability of material.

Anti-spam policy and acceptable use

While we encourage you to refer friends, family, colleagues, and others to use the Service, you may do so only through methods that are consistent with the terms and conditions of your own Internet service provider as well as prevailing standards of acceptable Internet use and behavior. In particular, you may not use the Service, name, trademarks, or other intellectual property of Wips.com in conjunction with the sending of unsolicited email, or cause to be used Wips.com's equipment, network connectivity, or other resources to originate, deliver, relay, or otherwise transmit unsolicited email messages. You may not engage in any of these prohibited activities by using the service of any other provider, third-party agent, remailing service, or address forwarding service, in such a way that Wips.com's network addresses or Wips.com-hosted Web or email services are in any way identified as being associated with the sending of unsolicited email. Other prohibited methods of advertising or promoting your involvement with Wips.com include multiple postings of messages to Usenet newsgroups, mailing lists, chat rooms (including IRC, AIM, ICQ, or other interactive chat services) or other online forums. Incidents of "spamming" or similar inappropriate behavior should be reported to us.

Access to wips.Com's service

To use the Service, you must provide all your own equipment to establish a connection to the Internet and provide for your own access, including paying any fees.

Other websites to which wips.Com's service link or refer

The Web changes constantly and no technique can ever index all pages accessible on the Web. As a result, Wips.com cannot guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the websites or URLs to which Wips.com's Service link or refer.


Further, the process of including websites in Wips.com's Service is largely automatic. Wips.com does not screen the websites included in the Service, and these other websites are maintained by persons over whom Wips.com exercises no control. For these reasons, Wips.com assumes no responsibility for the content of any website or URL included in the Service and is not responsible for errors or omissions or for offensive or objectionable content contained on any website or URL included in the Service.


Wips.com occasionally receives requests to change or remove websites listed in the Service. Wips.com reserves the right to address such requests on a case-by-case basis, and our editors will review and seriously consider the new suggestions that people enter.

Illegal, unauthorized, or fraudulent content or activities

The Service may be used only for lawful purposes and in a lawful manner. You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.


Wips.com has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any Review, activity, and content associated with the Service. Wips.com may investigate any reported violation of its policies and take any action it deems appropriate, including terminating your access to the Service without notice. Wips.com may report any activity it suspects violates any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties. To cooperate with governmental requests, to protect Wips.com's systems and users, to ensure the integrity and operation of Wips.com's business and systems, or in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, Wips.com may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate, including user contact details, IP addressing and traffic information, posted content, and Web usage paths. By using the Service you expressly consent to the foregoing use and disclosure.
