Feedster allows organizations and individuals to harness the rich quantity of information available in today's ever growing selection of RSS feeds and weblogs. Feedster, developer of the most powerful news search engine, offers the easiest and most robust way to take advantage of this timely content. Feedster allows users to subscribe to their favorite weblogs and customized updates through MyFeedster and/or through Feedster generated email alerts. To accomplish this, our users create their own subscriber accounts. To fulfill the purpose of this site, some personal information we ask for is used for communication purposes to our subscribers.
The feeds displayed as search results or linked to by Feedster are developed by people over whom Feedster exercises no control. The search results that appear from Feedster's indices are indexed by Feedster’s automated system and Feedster cannot and does not screen the sites before including them in the indices from which such automated search results are gathered. A search using Feedster may produce search results and links to feeds that some people find objectionable, inappropriate, or offensive. We cannot guarantee that a Feedster search will not locate unintended or objectionable content and assume no responsibility for the content of any site included in any search results or otherwise linked to by Feedster.
Other properties and services indexing Feedster’s content (feeds) are required to receive approval by Feedster prior to initiating any activity involving the content supplied by Feedster.

Requests for Removal of Links or Cached Materials
Feedster occasionally receives requests from people to remove links from its indices. Although Feedster reserves the right to address such requests individually, the general approach that Feedster takes reflects the following principles:
Feedster'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, Feedster cannot and does not screen anything made available through its indices. For each web site reflected in Feedster'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, Feedster 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.
Feedster 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 Feedster 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 Feedster Search Service. Feedster 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. The steps necessary to remove cached pages, and to prevent a site from being cached and/or included in the indices are described in the Feedster Help and FAQ accessible from the home page of this site.
These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, 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 Feedster.
