Requests for Removal of Links or Cached Materials
Top20Toolbar occasionally receives requests from people
to remove links from its indices. Although Top20Toolbar
reserves the right to address such requests individually,
the general approach that Top20Toolbar takes reflects the
Top20Toolbar's indices consist of information that has
been identified, indexed and compiled through an automated
process with no advance review by human beings. Given the
enormous volume of web site information added, deleted, and
changed on a frequent basis, Top20Toolbar cannot and does
not screen anything made available through its indices. For
each web site reflected in Top20Toolbar's indices, if either
(i) a site owner restricts access to his or her web site or
(ii) a site is taken down from the web, then, upon receipt
of a request by the site owner or a third party in the
second instance, Top20Toolbar would consider on a
case-by-case basis requests to remove the link to that site
from its indices. However, if the operator of the site does
not take steps to prevent it, the automatic facilities used
to create the indices are likely to find that site and index
it again in a relatively short amount of time.
Top20Toolbar stores many web pages in its cache to
retrieve for users as a back-up in case the page's server
temporarily fails. Site owners may block Top20Toolbar from
returning cached versions of their pages by using the
NOARCHIVE meta-tag. Site owners may also request immediate
removal of cached page from the Top20Toolbar Search Service.
Top20Toolbar evaluates such requests for the immediate
removal of cached content on a case-by-case basis and does
not guarantee that every request will be granted.
These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed
in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom, without
giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your
actual state or country of residence. If for any reason a
court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or
portion of the Terms of Service to be unenforceable, the
remainder of the Terms of Service will continue in full
force and effect.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement
between the parties with respect to the subject matter
hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior or
contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or
oral, regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of any
provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if
in writing and signed by Top20Toolbar.
