SourceForge.JP reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, SourceForge.JP or any Service thereon (or any part thereof). SourceForge.JP shall not be liable to any user or other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance except as expressly provided herein.

2. NO UNLAWFUL OR PROHIBITED USE

If you violate any of these Terms, your permission to use the SourceForge.JP website automatically terminates.

3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE; NO WEB ACCESS

SourceForge.JP is a website owned and operated by OSDN Corporation("OSDN), for the purpose of fostering software development and content creation under Open-Source Initiative ("OSI")-approved licenses or other arrangements relating to software and/or content development that may be approved by SourceForge.JP (the "Purpose"). SourceForge.JP currently offers users access to a rich collection of on-line resources for Open Source software development and content creation, including various communications tools, source code control and project management tools, online forums, personalized content and branded programming through its network of properties (collectively, the "Services"). To use the Services, each user must independently obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access Web-based content, and pay any and all service fees or equipment costs associated with such access.

4. REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS

If required by SourceForge.JP, each user must: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information on the Service's registration form (collectively, the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data as necessary. If, after investigation, we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any user's information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we may suspend or terminate that user's account and prohibit any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof) by that user other than as expressly provided herein.

Each user will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service's registration process and is wholly responsible for maintaining the confidentiality thereof and wholly liable for all activities occurring thereunder. SourceForge.JP cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from a user's failure to comply with this Section, including any loss or damage arising from any user's failure to (a) immediately notify SourceForge.JP of any unauthorized use of his or her password or account or any other breach of security and (b) ensure that he or she exits from his or her account at the end of each session.

SourceForge.JP handles user Registration Data in accordance with the SourceForge.JP Privacy Statement.

5. CONTENT

All information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or any other materials whatsoever (collectively, "Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that the user, and not SourceForge.JP, is entirely responsible for all Content that he or she uploads, posts, emails or otherwise transmits via SourceForge.JP or any Service. No user shall transmit Content or otherwise conduct or participate in any activities on SourceForge.JP and/or any Service which, in the judgment of SourceForge.JP, is likely to be prohibited by law in any applicable jurisdiction, including laws governing the encryption of software, the export of technology, the transmission of obscenity or the permissible uses of intellectual property.

SourceForge.JP will not pre-screen or review Content, but SourceForge.JP reserves the right to refuse or delete any Content of which it becomes aware that it reasonably deems not to fulfill the Purpose. In addition, SourceForge.JP shall have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse or delete any content that it reasonably considers to violate the Terms or be otherwise illegal. SourceForge.JP, in its sole and absolute discretion, may preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or judicial or governmental mandate or as reasonably determined useful by us to protect the rights, property or personal safety of SourceForge.JP, its users and the public. SourceForge.JP does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. Under no circumstances will SourceForge.JP be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, liability for any errors or omissions in any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via SourceForge.JP or any Service thereon.

Each user, by using SourceForge.JP or any Service, may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Each user must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content.

6. LICENSING AND OTHER TERMS APPLYING TO CODE AND OTHER CONTENT POSTED ON SOURCEFORGE.JP:

With respect to text or data entered into and stored by publicly-accessible site features such as message boards and bug trackers, the submitting user retains ownership of such SourceForge.JP Public Content; with respect to publicly-available statistical content which is generated by the site to monitor and display project activity, such content is owned by SourceForge.JP. In each such case, the submitting user grants SourceForge.JP the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such Content (in whole or part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, all subject to the terms of any applicable approved license.

With respect to Content posted to private areas of SourceForge.JP, i.e., private SourceForge.JP development tools or SourceForge.JP Mail, the submitting user may grant to SourceForge.JP or other users such rights and licenses as the submitting user deems appropriate.
