Right to Use the RStudio Service.
You understand that we use third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Service.

Availability of the RStudio Service; Eligibility to Use the RStudio Service.
You have the right to access and use the RStudio Service as it exists on any given day and RStudio has no other obligation with respect to updating, improving, maintaining, or making available the RStudio Service. Further, RStudio reserves the right, any time and from time to time, to update, modify, revise, replace, refuse access to, suspend or discontinue the RStudio Service, temporarily or permanently, partially or entirely, with or without notice.

You acknowledge that if you wish to protect your transmission of data and/or files to RStudio, it is your responsibility to use a secure encrypted connection to communicate with and/or utilize the RStudio Service.
“Your Application(s)” as used in this Agreement means the computer application written using the R computer programming language that you upload to RStudio’s or its third party hosting providers’ computer systems via the RStudio Service and permit other RStudio Users or the general public to access and use Your Application in accordance with the license terms applicable to Your Application. You agree to make any license terms applicable to Your Application available to Users of Your Application by linking or otherwise prominently displaying such terms to Users when they first access or use Your Application.
RStudio does not claim ownership of Your Application; however, you hereby grant RStudio a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid up, transferable and non-exclusive license, as applicable, to (i) access, use, copy, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display Your Application and any analyses, data, or other information that you submit to the RStudio Service in connection with providing the RStudio Service to you and your Users and (ii) to internally access, copy and use Your Application to review the underlying source code of Your Application and to test and evaluate Your Application, including without limitation, with your permission, conducting load testing and validation of Your Application.
If you choose to, you can share Your Applications, and any analyses, data, or other information that you submit to the RStudio Service, with the general public, or with specific individuals or Users you select to the extent the RStudio Service supports such functionality. If you decide to share Your Application, and/or any analyses, data, or other information that you submit to the RStudio Service, you are giving certain legal rights, as explained below, to those individuals who you have given access. RStudio has no responsibility to enforce or police, or aid you in enforcing or policing, the terms of the license(s) or permission(s) you have chosen to offer. RSTUDIO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISUSE OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF YOUR APPLICATIONS AND /OR ANY ANALYSES, DATA, OR OTHER INFORMATION THAT YOU SUBMIT TO THE RSTUDIO SERVICE BY THIRD PARTIES.
If you choose to upload data to an application you are using via the RStudio Service, you acknowledge and agree you are giving certain legal rights to the licensor of the application to process and otherwise use your data. Please carefully review any license terms accompanying any application to which you submit your data for the legal rights which you are giving the application licensor. Further, RStudio does not claim ownership of your data; however, you hereby grant RStudio a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid up, transferable and non-exclusive license, as applicable, to use and copy your data in connection with making your data available to the application (and the licensor of such application) to which you have submitted your data. You acknowledge and agree that even if you remove your data from the RStudio Service, your data may have been downloaded by, and remain accessible to, the licensors of those applications to which you submitted your data. Accordingly, do not submit data which you desire to remain confidential or which you wish to limit the right to access or use. You should never submit to the RStudio Service any data which consists of personally identifiable information, credit card information, or protected health information, as such terms are defined by relevant laws, rules, and regulations. RSTUDIO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONFIDENTIALITY, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, LOSS, MISUSE OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF ANY DATA YOU SUBMIT TO THE RSTUDIO SERVICE OR ANY APPLICATION MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE RSTUDIO SERVICE.
Types of Accounts; Price Changes; Payments; Refunds; Upgrading or Downgrading Your Plan. RStudio allows you to share, without charge, up to that number of Your Applications and analyses as is set forth under the free plan entitlements applicable to the RStudio Service (the “Free Plan”). You acknowledge and agree that with respect to the Free Plan, RStudio’s branding will appear with Your Applications or analyses. One person may not maintain more than one free account.
RStudio also offers paid plans under which you would be entitled to additional features and capabilities, subject to your payment of the applicable fees to RStudio when you place your order for a paid plan as set forth at www.rstudio.com/products (a “Paid Plan”). The RStudio branding will not appear in Your Applications or analyses under a Paid Plan and Paid Plans may have additional features and functionality which are not available to you under the Free Plan as described in the plan entitlements applicable to your plan. All fees for Paid Plans are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. ALL PAID PLAN PURCHASES ARE FINAL AND NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN FOR UNUSED PORTIONS OF YOUR INITIAL OR ANY RENEWAL PAID PLAN SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD.
If you upgrade from the Free Plan to any Paid Plan, we will immediately bill you using the credit card you have provided.
For monthly payment plans, the RStudio Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. For annual payment plans, the RStudio Service is billed in advance on an annual basis and is non-refundable. ALL PAID PLANS WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR SUCCESSIVE MONTHLY OR ANNUAL PERIODS, AS APPLICABLE, UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL DATE.
The RStudio Service will prorate subscription changes. If a monthly subscription is upgraded or downgraded during a given month, the prorated additional charges or the credit will be applied at the next billing cycle. For subscription changes between different intervals, a credit is applied for the unused portion of the old plan, and a charge is generated for the new plan thereby resetting the billing cycle. Note that if we charge for the new plan, and that payment fails, the plan change will not go into effect.
Prices of all Paid Plans are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us; provided, however, that, if you are currently a Paid Plan subscriber, we will honor your existing Paid Plan price for the greater of the remainder of your subscription period or 90 days from the date of our notice. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the RStudio website for the RStudio Service or as otherwise provided under the Notifications and Service Messages section below.
You are solely responsible for properly cancelling your account. You may cancel or downgrade your Paid Plan account by visiting your “Account” page and selecting “Downgrade” or “Cancel”. Cancellation of a Paid Plan will downgrade your account to the Free Plan. The cancellation or downgrade of a Paid Plan will go into effect immediately. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, cancellation refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made. Cancellation of your Free Plan will result in the deletion of all information and data from your account and such information and data cannot be recovered after cancellation of your Free Plan.
RStudio, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the RStudio Service, or any other RStudio Service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the RStudio Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the deletion of all information and data in your account. RStudio reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN RSTUDIO AND YOU.
The foregoing limitation of liability shall:

Governing Law and Arbitration. Except for any disputes relating to intellectual property rights, obligations or any infringement claims, any disputes with RStudio arising out of or relating to the Agreement (“Disputes”) shall be governed by the law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts regardless of your country of origin or where you access the RStudio Service, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods.
Any Disputes shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration under the rules and auspices of the American Arbitration Association, to be held in Boston, Massachusetts, in English, with a written decision stating and legal reasoning issued by the arbitrator(s) at either party’s request, and with arbitration costs and reasonable documented attorneys’ costs of both parties to be borne by the party that ultimately loses.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may obtain injunctive relief (preliminary or permanent) and orders to compel arbitration or enforce arbitral awards in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If you are involved in a Dispute as a consumer without any commercial interests related to the Dispute, we will agree to conduct arbitration proceedings in a major City in your State if travel to Boston would constitute an undue burden for you, and we will advance any arbitration fees that exceed what you would have had to pay for court proceedings (if you substantiate and represent to us in a written statement what court proceedings would have cost) provided that you shall refund such amounts if we ultimately prevail in the arbitration.
