This Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) sets forth terms and conditions for acceptable access and use of RStudio, Inc.’s (“RStudio”, “we” or “us”) websites and services (collectively, a “Services”) by authorized customers and their users (collectively, “Users”) and supplements any written agreement between RStudio and a User. This AUP is not meant to be exhaustive, but sets forth examples of conduct deemed by RStudio to be inappropriate, improper or harmful to RStudio’s network and Services and thereby prohibited. The restrictions set forth in this AUP shall apply to a User’s employees and any other person or entity that is provided access to the RStudio Services directly or indirectly by a User (the “Affiliates”). By accessing or using the Services, each User acknowledges that it is authorized to enter into this AUP and has read, understood and agrees to comply with the terms of this AUP, will cause its Affiliates comply with this AUP, and will be responsible for violations of this AUP by its Affiliates. If User does not agree to this AUP, then do not use the Services.
We reserve the right to modify this AUP from time to time in our sole discretion without notice; such changes will take effect upon the posting of such revised terms on this website. Accordingly, we recommend that Users check this AUP periodically. A User’s continued access or use of the Services after the posting of such revised terms constitutes the User’s agreement to comply with and to be bound by such revised terms. In the event of any conflict between this AUP and any other policy or agreement referenced herein, this AUP shall govern in the absence of specific language to the contrary in such policy or agreement.
Posting, uploading, sharing, submitting, or otherwise providing content that:
In this AUP, the term “content” means: (1) any information, data, text, software, code, scripts, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or other materials that you post, upload, share, submit, or otherwise provide in any manner to the Services and (2) any other materials, content, or data you provide to RStudio or use with the Services.
Without affecting any other remedies available to us, RStudio may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend a User’s account or access to the Services without notice or liability if RStudio (in its sole discretion) determines that a User or its Affiliates has violated this AUP and reserves the right to cooperate with legal authorities and third parties in the investigation of alleged wrongdoing. RStudio shall not be liable for any damages of any nature suffered by any User, Affiliates, or any third party resulting in whole or in part from our exercise of our rights under this AUP. User agrees to indemnify RStudio for any and all damages, claims, suits, costs or expenses asserted against or incurred by RStudio related to or in connection with a violation of this AUP by User or its Affiliates.
The Services are developed and controlled by RStudio in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA. User agrees that this AUP and User’s use of the Services will be governed by the laws of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA, without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of laws. User expressly agrees that the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or action arising out of or relating to this AUP or User’s or its Affiliate’s use of the Services shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and User further agrees and submits to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action. Those who choose to access this site from locations outside of Massachusetts are responsible for compliance with all applicable local laws. If RStudio takes action against User as a result of User’s or its Affiliate’s violation of this AUP, RStudio will be entitled to recover from User, and User agrees to pay, RStudio’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in connection with such action, in addition to any other relief granted to RStudio. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by User or its Affiliates of the terms and conditions hereof shall not constitute a wavier of our rights with respect to such breach or subsequent breaches
