OF ANY KIND IS EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. IT IS JUST A TOOL TO

YOU ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR SELECTING THE SOFTWARE TO ACHIEVE

Additional Disclaimer and Legal Issues When Using "My Web Server" Feature
It is users responsibility to verify with data source providers the
terms and conditions of fetching and using their data. In general,
data may be for personal use only, and not allowed to be distributed.
The author of HSQuote/HSQuote Plus and his company (HSQ Digital Products)
are not responsible for your use of any websites.
HSQuote Plus only provides a generic automation tool with some examples
of how to create format files. However, the author is not legally obliged
to create any format files for users. It is simply impossible to make
that commitment as there are millions of web pages that have good and
free data sources (see this as good opportunity). Users may purchase and
get registered, if they like the tool (make full use of the 21-day trial).
Once they have purchased, they cannot expect a refund for any reasons
including inability to create format files.
Users may contact the author, however, if they are willing to pay for
the effort to create format files. Each format file will cost US$30
(subject to change without notice), if it can be created with the
existing HSQuote Plus features for that particular web page. It is
not refundable once users have accepted the format file, because
web-page configurations may change or the free services may no longer
exist later. Users are solely responsible for the legal use of the web
pages and data, even if the author helps to create the format files as
the author will not be verifying the legal rights of the access.
Again, users willingness to pay does not make it obligatory for the
author to support it, even though the author will certainly want to,
and will do his best to, help as many people as possible to use this
Whether format files are created by the author or users, errors may
occur. Web-page configurations and contents may change. The HSQuote /
HSQuote Plus tools may have bugs. All these and many other situations
can result in fetching wrong data or generating inaccurate data.
Users should understand these potential risks when using such data
(or any data downloaded from the web sources). HSQ Digital Products,
its employees, the author and data providers will not be responsible
for the accuracy of the data and information, and any loss, however
arising, from the use of, or reliance on this information.
Changes and enhancements will be made to HSQuote Plus and the format
file definition, to make this generic data downloading feature more
robust and cover more types of web pages. It is possible that existing
format files may need to be changed accordingly, though the author will
attempt to make them backward compatible and minimize the change if
absolutely needed. Users may choose not to update to newer versions,
but should not complain about this.
Thank you for choosing HSQuote / HSQuote Plus.
