Welcome to eXandria. This page explains the terms by which you may use our online services, website, and software provided on or in connection with the service (collectively the “Service”).
eXandria allows you to:
In order to complete your registration, you will be asked to provide eXandria with personal information (sex, nationality, birth year). This information will be used by eXandria to cluster book reviews by users characteristics. When reading the reviews of a book, users will be able to use filters to display only book reviews posted by an identified group of users (by age, nationality and sex).
You do not have to register in order to visit eXandria. You do have to register in order to access certain features of the Service, including posting book reviews, commenting on other members' reviews, cataloguing books. For these functions you will need to register with eXandria and create a Member account. Your account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion.
You may never use another Member’s account without permission.
When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, including your personal information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify eXandria immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although eXandria will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you shall be liable for the losses of eXandria or others due to such unauthorized use.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement, eXandria grants you permission to use the Service for your personal, non-commercial purposes only. You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Service in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated "scraping"; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc., to access the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the eXandria servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser; (iii) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Service; (iv) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (v) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Service; (vi) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information, including account names and email addresses, from the Service; (vii) using the Service for any commercial solicitation purposes; (viii) using any information obtained from the Service in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person, or in order to contact, advertise to, solicit, or sell to any Member without their prior explicit consent, (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Service; or, (xi) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service. Exandria may permanently or temporarily terminate, suspend, or otherwise refuse to permit your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in eXandria’s sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
