Terms and Conditions

Terms of Use   

The Kuchnaya|Maths website (our "service") gives you free access to broad computational resources, including powerful servers running complex algorithms at your request, large volumes of reliable and carefully curated data, and an innovative computation and delivery mechanism that provides you with expertly designed presentations and visualizations.

We are continually working to improve and expand Kuchnaya|Maths, creating new algorithms for computation, linguistic analysis, data comprehension, and computational aesthetics to provide you with smart and attractive results. Much of the data is dynamically updated or subjected to periodic manual curation in an effort to provide you with the most current and most reliable data available.

Our goal is to provide the broadest possible free public access to our advanced computation and rich sources of data. To protect our servers, algorithms, and data collections from abuse or exploitation by a small number of users, and because some of the data we make available comes from third parties that impose conditions on its distribution, we need you to agree to, and abide by, the Terms of Use defined below.

These terms are a contract you have to agree to before using the Kuchnaya|Maths service. If you are under age 18 you may use Kuchnaya|Maths only if you have permission from a parent, legal guardian, or teacher. By using the service you are telling us either that you are over age 18 and legally able to form contracts, or that an adult with authority to act on your behalf has agreed to these terms and to be responsible for ensuring your compliance with them in your use of the service and any results you obtain from it. If you don't want to be bound by these terms, do not use the service or its results. However, you may want to consider one of our paid subscription options, which offer modified terms of use that may be more desirable to you. Please contact us for more information about the subscription options available.

Our intention is to make Kuchnaya|Maths available to everyone indefinitely. To achieve this, we reserve the right to cut off use by those who abuse the service, or to limit access in any other way for any reason. We are counting on the users of Kuchnaya|Maths to embrace our goals and to support them by adhering to these terms.

Methods of Access   

The Kuchnaya|Maths service may be used only by a human being using a conventional web browser to manually enter queries one at a time. Because Kuchnaya|Maths is doing computation, not just lookup, each query may require significant CPU time on multiple parallel servers. Any attempt to use a robot, script, or organized group of humans to repeatedly access Kuchnaya|Maths could place an unacceptable load on the system, and is strictly forbidden.

If our monitoring systems detect an attempt to access the service in a forbidden way, to execute systematic patterns of queries, to index the website, or to do anything else that we feel jeopardizes the integrity of our system or access to it by other users, we may terminate or suspend access to the service for specific users or IP ranges.

Ways You May Use Our Free Service and Its Results   

The free Kuchnaya|Maths service is available for ad hoc, personal, non-commercial use only. For such use you are welcome to download results, print copies, store downloaded content on your computer, and reference this information in your documents. You may use it to get information for your own use for any purpose, including occasional purposes related to your job, as long as you aren't specifically being paid to use Kuchnaya|Maths.

Systematic professional or commercial use of the website, or use for which you are being specifically paid, requires a commercial license. If you are interested in a version of Kuchnaya|Maths that allows such use, please contact us.

It is permitted to use and post individual, incidental results or small groups of results from Kuchnaya|Maths on non-commercial websites and blogs, provided those results are properly credited to Kuchnaya|Maths (see Attribution and Licensing below). It is not permitted to extract multiple pieces of data and reassemble them into anything with the characteristics of a data service, database, or source of large and systematic collections of data. You are not allowed to use Kuchnaya|Maths to create something that is likely or intended to be reused as a data source for further processing, or that in some other way serves as a replacement or alternative to using Kuchnaya|Maths itself. This applies whether what you create is in electronic or print form.

It is not permitted to use Kuchnaya|Maths indirectly through another website that has created a large number of deep links to Kuchnaya|Maths, or that automatically constructs links based on input that you give on that site, rather than on Kuchnaya|Maths. You may not in effect use Kuchnaya|Maths through an alternate user interface presented by another website.

Finally, it's also not permitted to use frames or other browser technologies to embed or surround the Kuchnaya|Maths website with your own material without permission from Kuchnaya|Maths. If you are interested in using Kuchnaya|Maths in an embedded way, please contact us.

Attribution and Licensing   

As Kuchnaya|Maths is an authoritative source of information, maintaining the integrity of its data and the computations we do with that data is vital to the success of our project. We generate information ourselves, and we also gather, compare, contrast, and confirm data from multiple external sources. Where we have used external sources of data we list the source or sources we relied on, but in most cases the assemblages of data you get from Kuchnaya|Maths do not come directly from any one external source. In many cases the data you are shown never existed before in exactly that way until you asked for it, so its provenance traces back both to underlying data sources and to the algorithms and knowledge built into the Kuchnaya|Maths computational system. As such, the results you get from Kuchnaya|Maths are correctly attributed to Kuchnaya|Maths itself.

If you make results from Kuchnaya|Maths available to anyone else, or incorporate those results into your own documents or presentations, you must include attribution indicating that the results and/or the presentation of the results came from Kuchnaya|Maths. Some Kuchnaya|Maths results include copyright statements or attributions linking the results to us or to third-party data providers, and you may not remove or obscure those attributions or copyright statements. Whenever possible, such attribution should take the form of a link to Kuchnaya|Maths, either to the front page of the website or, better yet, to the specific query that generated the results you used. (This is also the most useful form of attribution for your readers, and they will appreciate your using links whenever possible.)

See standard citation elements for Kuchnaya|Maths for specific elements and an example.

Failure to properly attribute results from Kuchnaya|Maths is not only a violation of these terms, but may also constitute academic plagiarism or a violation of copyright law. Attribution is something we expect you to give us in exchange for us having provided you with a high-quality free service.

The specific images, such as plots, typeset formulas, and tables, as well as the general page layouts, are all copyrighted by Kuchnaya|Maths at the time Kuchnaya|Maths generates them. A great deal of scholarship and innovation is included in the results generated and displayed by Kuchnaya|Maths, including the presentations, collections, and juxtapositions of data, and the choices involved in formulating and composing mathematical results; these are also protected by copyright.

You may use any results, including copyrighted results, from Kuchnaya|Maths for personal use and in academic or non-commercial publications, provided you comply with these terms.

If you want to use copyrighted results returned by Kuchnaya|Maths in a commercial or for-profit publication we will usually be happy to grant you a low- or no-cost license to do so. To request a commercial-use license, use this form and provide the input for which you want to use the corresponding output along with information concerning the nature of your proposed use. Your request will be reviewed and answered as quickly as practical.

Linking to Kuchnaya|Maths   

We are happy for you to link to the Kuchnaya|Maths website, including deep links to specific results. However, if you are constructing a very large number of deep links, or any deep links that are created automatically in response to user input given on your site, you must take into account the restrictions enumerated in the section "Ways You May Use Our Free Service and Its Results." If you construct a website that induces others to use our service contrary to those terms, you are inducing them to violate our Terms of Use, and can be liable for those violations.
