ONLINE SERVICE AGREEMENT
Dated: July 2014
Section 1 Description of Services
Microsoft Translator delivers automatic translations into a specified language, and other language-related functionality (the "Service"). Microsoft provides access to the Service by means of the Microsoft Translator application programming interface (the "API") to allow software applications, websites or other interfaces developed to utilize the Service to interact with the Service (the "Application"). An Application does not include an interface that emulates the functionality or is substantially similar to the API. You may subscribe to use the API for your Applications to interact with the Service by way of the Microsoft Windows Azure Marketplace Service (the "Marketplace Service"). The Marketplace Service is an online market place located at https://datamarket.azure.com where Marketplace Services, catalogues, data, applications, software, sites, information, materials, content and updates are made available to you. The Marketplace Service is governed by the terms of the Microsoft Windows Azure Marketplace Service Agreement (the "Marketplace Service Agreement").
Section 2 Acceptance of Terms
By creating an account or accepting this contract, you represent that you are at least 18 years old or have reached the age of "majority" where you live, if that is not 18 years of age. If you are under 18 or have not reached the age of majority, your parent or legal guardian must set up an account on your behalf and accept this contract. Please note that Microsoft does not provide warranties for the Service. This contract also limits our liability. These terms are in sections 10 and 14. Please read them carefully.
Section 3 License
During the term of your subscription and subject to your compliance with this contract, Microsoft provides you a non-exclusive, nontransferable, nonsublicensable, worldwide license to:
use the API and access the Service to embed the API and underlying content into the Application so that the Application can interface directly with the Service;
use the API and access the Service to host and present results from the Service on the Application; and
use the documentation, media, and other materials made available by Microsoft from time to time for use with the Service and API solely in support of you exercising your rights in this license.
Microsoft will provide you with the means for obtaining unique access credentials to access the Service through the API solely for the purposes stated in this license. You are solely responsible for: (a) keeping your access credentials confidential; and (b) any and all activities that occur under your access credentials. You must promptly notify Microsoft of any unauthorized use of your access credentials or any other breach of security. Microsoft will not be liable for any loss that you incur if someone else uses your access credentials, either with or without your knowledge. However, you could be held liable for losses incurred by Microsoft or another party if someone else uses your access credentials.
Section 4 Microsoft Marks
During the term of your subscription, you will provide attributions to the Service as outlined on http://www.aka.ms/TranslatorAttributionGuide.
Section 5 Modifications
Microsoft may change the Service or delete features of the Service at any time and for any reason. For any changes or deletions that Microsoft has reason to know may disrupt your use of the Service, Microsoft will provide six (6) months' notice by posting the relevant information on the developer support forum at http://www.aka.ms/TranslatorForum regarding such changes or deletions. Other than as provided in Section 8, or if required to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation, or legal process, Microsoft will not cancel, suspend or terminate your use of the Service during the term of your subscription.
