You may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit or distribute in any way any material from the Service including code and software. You may download material from the Service for your personal, non-commercial use only, provided you keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices.

As part of our Service, Waynet, Inc. agrees to provide you with information and other computer services subject to these Terms of Service. You agree to use our service in accordance with these Terms. Upon notice published on this site, or such other notice as may be given, Waynet, Inc. may amend or modify these Terms of Service, or impose new conditions on use, at any time. Your use of this service after such notice, shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of the new Terms.

License to Waynet, Inc.

By posting messages, uploading files, or otherwise providing any material to us for display on the Service , you are granting Waynet, Inc. a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to:

  1. Use, copy, sublicense, adapt, transmit, publicly perform or display any such communication.
  2. Sublicense to third parties the unrestricted right to exercise any of the foregoing rights granted with respect to the communication.

The foregoing grants shall include the right to exploit any proprietary rights in such material, including but not limited to rights under copyright, trademark, service mark or patent laws under any relevant jurisdiction.

Privacy Policy

When you respond to a request by Waynet, Inc. for personal information (for example, your name and e-mail address), we reserve the right to use the information that you give us and to disclose it to third parties in aggregate form (a survey tally for example).  However, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used.  When you email us, your message may be forwarded on to the appropriate party who can best answer your question.

In addition to the uses noted above, visitors who supply us with personal information as part of an online survey or posting may receive a phone call from us for confirmation purposes or, when indicated, for an interview by a reporter.

Waynet, Inc.'s web servers automatically collect information about which pages are visited and the domain name (e.g., aol.com) of visitors, but not any information that personally identifies a visitor. This information is used for internal review, to tailor information to individual visitors and for traffic audits. Having aggregate information about visitors helps us build a better site and fulfill our educational mission.

As you know, Internet technology is developing at a dazzling pace. For those of us in the online business, that means we need to maintain the flexibility to change our plans. We may find it necessary to change our privacy policy in the future. If we do decide to change the policy, we will post changes as soon as they go into effect.
