Yahoo Maktoob Terms of Service
Terms of Service Update
12 May 2017
If you haven’t heard, Yahoo plans to sell its operating business to Verizon. We anticipate the completion of the transaction to occur in June 2017. At the completion, the Yahoo operating business will join the Verizon family of companies, and Yahoo Holdings, Inc. will be offering the Yahoo services you love and enjoy.
In connection with this proposed transaction, Yahoo is updating its terms of service to reflect the Yahoo Holdings, Inc. name and to add the following sentence to Section 29: “Yahoo may freely assign the TOS and all of the policies and other documents incorporated or referenced in it (including all rights, licenses, and obligations under it or them), in whole or in part and without notice.”
These updated terms are effective immediately for any new user registrations. For existing users, they will automatically be effective on June 8, 2017, unless you cancel your Yahoo account(s) before then.
That’s it! We look forward to continuing to deliver your favorite products and services.
- ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo") welcomes you. Yahoo provides the Services (defined below) to you subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at:https://policies.yahoo.com/xa/en/yahoo/terms/utos/index.html. By accessing and using the Services, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provision of the TOS and other documents incorporated herein. In addition, when using particular Yahoo owned or operated services, you and Yahoo shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such Services, which may be posted and modified from time to time. All such guidelines or rules (including but not limited to our Spam Policy) are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS. Yahoo may also offer other services that are governed by different Terms of Service. In such cases the other terms of service will be posted on the relevant service to which they apply.
You are solely responsible for using the Services in compliance with any and all applicable law. If you are in a jurisdiction where download or use of the Services is prohibited or restricted or if you are below the applicable legal age required to use the Services, please click "cancel" or close your browser, as applicable, and do not download or use the Services. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Services, including the release of new Yahoo properties, shall be subject to this TOS which you agree to by continued use of the Services.
- DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Yahoo provides users with access to a rich collection of resources, including, without limitation, various communications tools, forums, shopping services, search services, personalized content and branded programming through its network of properties which may be accessed through any various medium or device now known or hereafter developed (collectively, the "Services" unless otherwise noted). You understand and agree that the Services may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for Yahoo to provide the Services. You also understand and agree that the Services may include certain communications from Yahoo, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the Yahoo Newsletter, and that these communications are considered part of your membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.
You understand and agree that the Services are provided "AS-IS" and that Yahoo assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Services, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Services.
You further understand and agree that access and use by you of some of the Services may be subject to payment of certain fees. You are responsible for payment of such fees to Yahoo.
- PROCESSING THE TRANSMISSION OF SERVICES
You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Services, including your Content (as defined in Section 8 below), may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
- MATURE CONTENT ON SERVICES
Please be aware that Yahoo has created certain areas on the Services that contain mature content. You must be at least 18 years of age to access and view such areas.
- YOUR REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS FOR SERVICES
In consideration of your use of the Services, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (the "Registration Data"); (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete; and (c) comply with the Terms of Service set forth herein. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Yahoo has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Yahoo has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). Yahoo is concerned about the safety and privacy of all users, particularly children. For this reason, parents of children under the age of 13 or who are not of the legal age to contract under applicable law and who wish to allow their children access to the Services must create a Yahoo Family Account. When you create a Yahoo Family Account and add your child to the account, you certify that you are at least 18 years old and that you are the legal guardian of the child/children listed on the Yahoo Family Account. By adding a child to your Yahoo Family Account, you also give your child permission to access many areas of the Services. Please remember that the Services are designed to appeal to a broad audience. Accordingly, as the legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the Services areas and/or Content (as defined in Section 8 below) are appropriate for your child. You understand and agree that Yahoo shall not be responsible or liable for any use or access by your child of any inappropriate or mature Services areas and/or Content.
Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable Content.
- MEMBER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD AND SECURITY ON YAHOO MAKTOOB

If you violate this Section, or otherwise cannot validate your account to Yahoo, you acknowledge and agree that your account may be permanently inaccessible to you and that all data associated with the account may not be retrievable. Yahoo does not guarantee that you will have permanent access to your data used with the Services, or that it will provide copies to you in the event data is deleted or lost. Yahoo encourages you to properly back up your data. Yahoo cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 7.

As a result, and also as a result of Yahoo's network architecture and business practices and the nature of electronic communications, even communications that seem to be intrastate in nature can result in the transmission of interstate communications regardless of where you are physically located at the time of transmission.

"Publicly accessible" areas of the Services are those areas of the Yahoo network of properties that are intended by Yahoo to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Services would include Yahoo Answers and portions of Yahoo Groups and Flickr that are open to both members and visitors. However, publicly accessible areas of the Services would not include portions of Yahoo Groups that are limited to members, Services intended for private communication such as Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Messenger, or areas of the Yahoo network of properties such as portions of World Wide Web sites that are accessible via hypertext or other links but are not hosted or served by Yahoo.
