If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this web site are protected by applicable copyright and trade mark law.

2. Use License

  1. Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the materials (information or software) on Encyclopedia Mythica's web site for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:
    1. modify or copy the materials;
    2. use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
    3. attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on Encyclopedia Mythica's web site;
    4. remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
    5. transfer the materials to another person or "mirror" the materials on any other server.
  2. This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by Encyclopedia Mythica at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.

3. Disclaimer

The materials on Encyclopedia Mythica's web site are provided "as is." Encyclopedia Mythica makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, Encyclopedia Mythica does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its Internet web site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.

4. Limitations

In no event shall Encyclopedia Mythica or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on Encyclopedia Mythica's Internet site, even if Encyclopedia Mythica or a Encyclopedia Mythica authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

5. Revisions and Errata

The materials appearing on Encyclopedia Mythica's web site could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. Encyclopedia Mythica does not warrant that any of the materials on its web site are accurate, complete, or current. Encyclopedia Mythica may make changes to the materials contained on its web site at any time without notice. Encyclopedia Mythica does not, however, make any commitment to update the materials.

6. Links to Other Web Sites

Encyclopedia Mythica may contain links to third-­party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by Encyclopedia Mythica. Encyclopedia Mythica ​has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that Encyclopedia Mythica shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.

The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Encyclopedia Mythica of the web site. Use of any such linked web site is at the user's own risk. We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third­party web sites or services that you visit.

7. Site Terms of Use Modifications

8. Termination

Encyclopedia Mythica may terminate or suspend access to our Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.

9. Governing Law

Any claim relating to Encyclopedia Mythica's web site shall be governed by the laws of the Netherlands without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.
