Welcome

These Cisco Web Site Terms of Use ("Terms") govern all cisco.com web pages ("Site").

By accessing, visiting, or otherwise using the Site, you agree to be bound by the Terms.

Your Use of Our Site

When using our Site, you must always comply with Cisco's Acceptable Use Policy. For the purposes of these Terms, "Services" means Site and "You" means you.

You must also comply with all applicable laws, including federal, state, and local laws, the laws of your jurisdiction, and laws regarding the transmission of technical data.

Cisco's Online Privacy Statement, including our Cookie Policy, describes how we will protect your privacy and handle your personal information when using our Site. By using the Site, you agree that Cisco can use such information in accordance with this policy.

Do not use the Site to advertise, promote, endorse, or market, directly or indirectly, any third party commercial products, services, solutions, or other technologies.

In order to access certain services or features of our Site, you may be required to create an account, profile, or download Cisco software. We may also offer access to certain services and features of the Site to you for a fee. In those situations, or when using other Cisco products and services as part of the Site, additional Cisco terms or requirements may apply and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us. In the event of any conflict between such additional terms and these Terms, the additional terms control.

If you violate these Terms, your access to the Site may be terminated immediately and without notice.

If any portion of the Site requires you to open an account or create a user profile, the information you provide must be truthful and accurate. You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another user at any time or to disclose your password to any third party. You must notify Cisco immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or of any breach in security.

We may, in our sole discretion, (i) reject or remove anything you post, (ii) restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to any or all of the Site, or (iii) cease to provide and maintain the Site, at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability. Upon doing so, we may retain or delete any information or content that you provided.

Cisco or its licensors own and retain all rights in such Software Content, including all applicable intellectual property rights.

Nothing in these Terms grants any right or license to Software Content.

We do not claim any ownership rights in any text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, software, works of authorship, or other materials that you upload or otherwise provide to our Site (collectively, "User Content"). However, you grant to Cisco a worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute your User Content for the limited purpose of providing the Site and all related services. You also agree that any other user of this Site may access, view, store, and reproduce your User Content for such user's personal use or otherwise in connection with use of the Site.

You may intend for some of your User Content to be generally available as Software Content on our Site. In those cases, in addition to the permissions that you grant above, you must also specify a license that provides other users with sufficient rights to use your work as intended, such as an open source or Creative Commons license. For guidance on how to choose an appropriate free software license, this is a helpful third party resource: https://choosealicense.com/.

You cannot post, modify, distribute, or reproduce in any way copyrighted or other proprietary materials without obtaining the prior written consent of the copyright owner of such materials. We may terminate an account and/or deny access to any user who is alleged to have infringed the copyright or proprietary rights of another.

All User Content is considered nonconfidential and public. Please do not submit any confidential or private information.
