2. Digital Content.
The SEAM Publishing Bookstore. The SEAM Publishing Bookstore and our distribution partners enable you, subject to the restrictions set forth herein, to view, download, display and use on your devices, including but not limited to mobile devices, e-readers, and personal computers (each a “Device”) a variety of digitized electronic content, such as books, journals and other periodicals, and other digital content, as determined by SEAM Publishing (“Digital Content”). SEAM Publishing may change the entities from which you download Digital Content and through which your SEAM Publishing Bookstore Digital Content transactions will be processed from time to time without notice.
Use of Digital Content. Following payment of the applicable fees for an item of Digital Content, for as long as SEAM Publishing and the applicable copyright holder have rights to provide you that Digital Content, SEAM Publishing gives you the non-exclusive right to download, subject to the restrictions set forth herein, copies of the applicable Digital Content to your Devices, and to view, use, and display such Digital Content an unlimited number of times on your Devices or as otherwise authorized by SEAM Publishing as part of the Bookstore for your personal, non-commercial use. If SEAM Publishing or the applicable copyright holder loses the rights to provide you any Digital Content, SEAM Publishing will cease serving such Digital Content to you and you may lose the ability to use such Digital Content. For certain Digital Content, SEAM Publishing may be acting as an agent of the copyright holder (and its agents) in providing such Digital Content to you under the Terms of Service. You acknowledge that such copyright holder (and its agents) shall be the seller(s) of such Digital Content to you under the Terms of Service. Select, copy and paste functions may be available for some Digital Content, and you must use these features within the prescribed limits and only for personal non-commercial purposes.
Restrictions. You may not sell, rent, lease, distribute, broadcast, transfer, or assign your rights to the Digital Content or any portion of it to any third party except as expressly permitted by SEAM Publishing. Provided, however, that nothing in the Terms of Service shall prohibit any uses of Digital Content that would otherwise be permitted under the United States Copyright Act. In addition, you may not remove any watermarks, labels, or other proprietary notices on or in the Digital Content. If you have multiple SEAM Publishing accounts with different user names, you may transfer Digital Content out of an account and into another account, provided you are the owner of each such account and provided SEAM Publishing has enabled a feature of the Bookstore allowing such transfers. You acknowledge and agree that SEAM Publishing may place limits on the number of Devices and/or software applications you may use to access Digital Content and that such limits may be set by SEAM Publishing at any time at SEAM Publishing’s discretion. You acknowledge and agree that SEAM Publishing may record and store the unique device identifier numbers of your Devices in order to enforce such limits.
For certain Digital Content, Creative Commons licensing may exist. In such cases, please refer to the license included in the Digital Content for terms and restrictions of usage.
Digital Rights Management. SEAM Publishing will not use Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) to protect the Digital Content.
