MathJax CDN Terms of Service

Intended Relationship. MathJax software is made available through a content distribution network (MathJax CDN) by MathJax Sponsors to facilitate the use of high-quality, accessible, reusable mathematics notation in web pages. The MathJax CDN enables users to take advantage of MathJax software without installing or maintaining the software themselves.

Acceptance of Terms. MathJax CDN services are provided subject to the following Terms of Service (TOS). By accessing and using the MathJax CDN, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provision of the TOS.

Modification of Terms. MathJax Sponsors may make changes to the TOS from time to time. When these changes are made, MathJax Sponsors will make a new copy of the Terms of Service available at:

http://www.mathjax.org/download/mathjax-cdn-terms-of-service/

You understand and agree that if you use the MathJax CDN after the date on which the TOS have changed, MathJax Sponsors will treat your use as acceptance of the updated TOS.

Modifications to Services. MathJax Sponsors reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, MathJax CDN services (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that MathJax Sponsors shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of MathJax CDN services.

Provision of Services. MathJax Sponsors seek to provide the best possible experience for all MathJax CDN users. Pursuant to that goal:

  • You acknowledge and agree that MathJax Sponsors may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing access to the MathJax CDN (or any features thereof) to you or to users generally at the sole discretion of the MathJax Sponsors, without prior notice to you.
  • You acknowledge and agree that while MathJax Sponsors may not currently have set a fixed upper limit on the volume of data transferred, such fixed upper limits may be set by at any time, at MathJax Sponsors discretion.
  • MathJax Sponsors will attempt to notify users providing domain and email information via email to cdn-notify@mathjax.org before making changes that may affect your access to the MathJax CDN, or changes to the TOS.

Use of Services.

  • You agree to use the MathJax CDN only for purposes permitted by the TOS and applicable laws, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States or other relevant countries).
  • You agree not to access (or attempt to access) the MathJax CDN by any means other than through the interface that is provided by MathJax Sponsors, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement.
  • You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the MathJax CDN (or the servers and networks which are connected to the MathJax CDN). You agree not to sell, trade, resell access to the MathJax CDN service.
  • You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that MathJax Sponsors have no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the TOS and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which MathJax Sponsors may suffer) of any such breach.

Limitation of Liability. YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT MATHJAX SPONSORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF MATHJAX SPONSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES) RESULTING FROM: (i) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE MATHJAX CDN SERVICES; (ii) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES; OR (iii) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE MATHJAX CDN SERVICE.

    Very detailed.

    Perhaps it may be helpful to have a simplified version for someone reading programming.reddit.com a lot – like whether it is fine to use MathJax for personal use in your blog and so on (of course provided that you follow the license too).

  • Michael

    What Markus said. Yes.

  • Clinton

    These terms do not seem to limit what you use it for rather than how you use it. Don’t use it in a way not consistent with your local laws. Only use officially documented means of access. Don’t use MathJax in a way that prevents other users from using it. Don’t believe that MathJax will be around forever and without limits.

    Thus, you can use MathJax for almost any conceivable kind of web page: Personal website, blog, course website, etc, etc. Note that this is only my interpretation, and that I have no relationship to MathJax other than being a satisfied user.

  • Wolfenstein

    I am still going to download and put it on my own server. That way there will be no bandwidth drain from my part.

  • Peter Krautzberger

    That’s very considerate of you. We like to encourage people to use the CDN. It’s easy to get started, we can guarantee it’s up to date and it helps us understand who uses MathJax.

  • RMF Runyan

    Thanks for this. I’m going to have to play around with it and figure out how to use it. I have grown tired of making PNG images of equations. Now that I have a little more free time, I can actually try and learn this thing.

    Thanks.

    These terms mean that MathJax CDN can stop free access to MathJax at any time, so that all your pages which use MathJax stop working.
    Why does anyone find this acceptable?

  • mathjax

    Hi,

    MathJax is open source software, licensed under the Apache License v2. This means that we actually cannot stop free access to MathJax. You are always free to host your own copy of MathJax in private or public.

    However, for practical reasons, we cannot promise that this CDN service will exist for eternity. That being said, we hope we can offer the CDN service for as long as the MathJax project exists.

    If you have any other questions regarding MathJax or our CDN service, feel free to contact us.
