You may not mirror the Site.
You may not use the Site for any purpose that is unlawful or dangerous.
You may not use the Site in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Site, or any network connected to the Site, or unduly interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Site.
Spidering, data-mining, scraping, or probing the Site, or otherwise attempting to abuse the service, is not only a violation of these terms but may also constitute violation of federal and state laws concerning unauthorized access to computer systems.

Contributing Data through the Site
You may use the Site and submit material strictly on a volunteer basis. No monetary compensation will be tied to any submissions. To the extent that a prize or reward may be offered, Wolfram reserves the right to withhold or deny the prize or reward due to ineligibility or for any other reason at Wolfram's discretion.
No anonymous contributions are allowed. You must use your real name when registering for the Site. Upon registering and applying to use the Site, your application will be processed and reviewed by Wolfram. Wolfram reserves the right to reject any application for any reason at Wolfram's discretion.
If your application is approved, you will be able to log in with your Wolfram ID. You may not share your login information with anyone else or allow anyone else to use the Site with your username and password.
You may download this file in Microsoft Excel format. We do not provide you with the software for opening the files; you are responsible for obtaining any necessary software licenses associated with the files with which you choose to work.
Once you download a file, you will have 14 days to work with it. If the time allocated is other than 14 days, it will be specified in the project detail view. If the project is not completed within the allocated time frame, the project will be made available to other volunteers.
By downloading and working with Wolfram's data files, you acknowledge that both the data and database are proprietary information owned by Wolfram and should be treated accordingly. All of the data you gain access to in Wolfram's data files is strictly confidential and should not be shared in any public or private forum whatsoever. You are also forbidden from using the data in any way other than to complete projects for the Site. You may not use the data to start your own database, and you may not discuss the data on any website.
