Non-Human Visitors include, but are not limited to, web spiders, bots, indexers, robots, crawlers, harvesters, or any other computer programs designed to access, read, compile or gather content from the Website automatically. Non-Human Visitors are restricted from taxing the resources of the Website beyond what would be typical of a human visitor.
Furthermore, as specified by the “no-email-collection” flag in the header pages within the Website and/or the contents of the robots.txt file, email addresses on this site are considered proprietary intellectual property of the author of the Website.

By continuing to access the Website, You acknowledge and agree that each email address the Website contains has a value not less than US $500 derived from their relative secrecy. You further agree that the compilation, storage, and potential distribution of these addresses by Non-Human Visitors substantially diminish the value of these addresses. Intentional collection, harvesting, gathering, or storing email addresses by Non-Human Visitors is recognized under this agreement as a violation of this agreement and expressly prohibited.
