THE JOURNAL OF PHILOSOPHY ONLINE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE FOR INSTITUTIONS
By accessing and/or using The Journal of Philosophy Online, the Licensee accepts and agrees to abide by the following terms and conditions of use:
The Journal of Philosophy Online consists of an electronic archive (the "Journal of Philosophy Online") containing “Content.” Content includes all articles, book reviews, and other copyrighted materials. The Journal of Philosophy Online is designed to permit the Licensee to access such Content for the limited purposes herein. The Journal of Philosophy hereby grants the Licensee a limited, nonexclusive license to access and use the Content during the Licensee's subscription period, and to use the Content, solely in accordance with these Terms and Conditions of Use (the "License"). The Licensee may not sublicense, assign, or transfer the License, and any attempt at such sublicense, assignment, or transfer is void. The subscription period is that period covered by the volumes and issues paid for regardless of the actual date of publication or date of payment for additional Online access.
Authorized Use: The Licensee may not sublicense or authorize access (by sharing passwords or by other means) to anyone who is not an Authorized User. "Authorized Users" are persons designated by the Licensee who have agreed to access the Journal of Philosophy Online through the Licensee's “Secure Network” in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of Use. A Secure Network here means a network which is only accessible to Authorized Users whose identity is authenticated at the time of login and periodically thereafter: a cache server or any server which can be accessed by unauthorized users is not a secure network for these purposes. The Licensee may provide access to only the following categories of individuals: those individuals who have a current official or unofficial affiliation with the Licensee (as part of the academic, library or research staff or as a student), or individuals who do not have a current official or unofficial affiliation, but who are using a library while physically on the Licensee's premises and using terminals located in its network. The Licensee's “Site” for purposes of access to the Journal of Philosophy Online is a single geographical site from which Authorized Users as defined above can access the Journal of Philosophy Online through terminals or computers linked to a secure server or network located at the site and designated for access in the registration materials provided by the Licensee. The Licensee agrees to provide to the Journal of Philosophy a list of valid registered IP addresses for its Authorized Users who will access Content through a secure server or network at the site. If the Licensee occupies more than one geographical site (for example, if the Licensee is a multi-campus University) the Licensee must obtain a separate License for each geographical location from which it wishes to provide access to the Journal of Philosophy Online. For these purposes, the IP address of a cache or other server or network which is publicly accessible is not a valid IP address. The Licensee agrees to notify the Journal of Philosophy promptly of any change to its list of valid IP addresses.
Access to Content: The Licensee may not distribute, make available, and/or attempt to make available, any of the Content in The Journal of Philosophy (whether alone or incorporated into other materials) to persons and/or entities other than other Authorized Users. Content may not be incorporated into an unrestricted database or website, or made available to others (electronically or otherwise), whether that Content is alone or incorporated into other materials. Access to the Content on the Journal of Philosophy Online continues only while a current subscription is maintained and paid for. If the subscription and License period ends, access to the Content is discontinued.
Permitted Uses: The Journal of Philosophy grants the Licensee the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to allow Authorized Users to access and use its Content during the Subcription Period by means of the Licensee's Secure Network for the purposes of research, teaching, and private study and for no other purposes. An Authorized User may view, search, retrieve, display, and print single copies of Content for such approved purposes. The Licensee may establish links to facilitate access to Content by Authorized Users only
Prohibited Uses: The Licensee may not: (a) use the Journal of Philosophy Online, or use, display, reproduce, or distribute its Content for fee-for-service or fee-for-Content use, course-packs, electronic reserves, or make any use, display, performance, reproduction, or distribution that exceeds or violates these Terms and Conditions of Use; (b) distribute and/or make available Content in The Journal of Philosophy Online to persons other than as expressly permitted herein; (c) provide and/or authorize access to the Journal of Philosophy Online, such as through the sharing of passwords, to persons or entities other than Authorized Users; (d) download or print, or attempt to download or print, substantial portions of the entire run of the Content available online; (e) use the Content to stock or replace library print holdings; (f) incorporate the Content into print or electronic materials that are for purchase or are disseminated for any commercial purposes (such as by a scholarly or commercial press); (g) use (including reproduce, distribute, perform, or display) the Journal of Philosophy Online or its Content in any way that is not authorized under this Agreement and that infringes on intellectual property rights therein; (h) make any adaptation or modification of, or any derivative work from, Content; (i) attempt to override, circumvent, or disable any software protections employed in the Online Archive; (j) modify, obscure, or remove any copyright notice or other means of identification included in the Journal of Philosophy Online Content, or authorize others to do so. The Licensee agrees to take reasonable steps to advise all Authorized Users of the terms and conditions of this site License and alert them that they may not use the Content for any prohibited use or otherwise reproduce, redistribute, retransmit, republish, or otherwise exploit the Content accessed through the Licensee's access to the Journal of Philosophy Online.

Jurisdiction: This Agreement shall be interpreted and construed according to, and governed by, the laws of the State of New York or United States Federal law, as applicable, excluding any such laws that might direct the application of the laws of another jurisdiction, and venue shall lie exclusively in the federal and state courts of the United States, excluding any such laws to the contrary.

Severability: If any provision or provisions of this License shall be held to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable, or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be in any way affected or impaired thereby. A waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of other breaches of the Agreement.
