The site at and all other Web sites owned or operated by Soccermetrics Research, LLC (“Soccermetrics”), are referred to as the “Site.”

By accessing and viewing this Site, and by using the content, materials, and services available on this Site, you are agreeing to be bound by these Website Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms and Conditions”), all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.

If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site.

(2) License to Use Website

Soccermetrics and/or its licensors own the data, content, software, graphics, artwork, and other material for the Site (the “Content”) as well as the selection, arrangement, organization, and enhancement of the Content (also, the “Content”) for this Site.  Unless otherwise stated, this Site and Content are owned or licensed by Soccermetrics and are (c) 2009-2013 Soccermetrics Research, LLC or third party
licensors.  All rights reserved.

You, the visitor, may may download one copy of these online materials, and you may print one copy of these materials for non-commercial and personal use, provided that you include a complete copy of this entire page.  Any use, reproduction, or distribution of this Site or Content without advance
written consent of Soccermetrics Research, LLC is prohibited.

If you believe that Soccermetrics or any user of this Site has infringed your copyright in any material way, please notify us at [email protected].

(3) Trademarks

All trademarks, service marks, and logos appearing on the Site (the “Marks”) are proprietary to Soccermetrics or its licensors, except as otherwise indicated herein.  All other Marks not owned by Soccermetrics are the property of their respective owners, who may or may not be affiliated with, connected to, or sponsored by Soccermetrics.  Use or misuse of these Marks without advance written consent of Soccermetrics or the respective Mark’s owner is expressly prohibited.  You shall not use any mark in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers as to source or sponsorship of your goods and services, or in any manner that disparages, tarnishes, dilutes, or discredits Soccermetrics. Further, to the extent that third party Marks used on this Site are the property of their respective owners, any mention on the Site should not be construed as a challenge to said Mark’s status or ownership. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

(4) Teachers and Search Engines

Notwithstanding other terms of this agreement, Soccermetrics grants the right to teachers to print pages from the Site for distribution to students, provided that proper attribution is given to the URL on the Site where the material originated.

Soccermetrics also grants the operators of search engines permission to use robots to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly-available searchable indexes of the materials, but not caches or archives of the materials. Except as specifically provided in this paragraph, you agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, robots, spiders, offline readers, or like devices, that accesses the Site in a manner which sends more request messages to the Site server in any given period of time than a typical human would normally produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line Web browser to read, view, and submit materials.  Soccermetrics reserves the right to revoke the exceptions granted in this clause, either generally or in specific cases, as well as the right to deny service to any user found violating the provisions of this clause.

(8) Site Communications

Soccermetrics welcomes your feedback and suggestions about how to improve our services, products, and this Site. Ideas, suggestions, and inventions are often considered by the person submitting them to be of a proprietary nature and to have value.

It is only prudent, therefore, in fairness to both the person submitting an idea, suggestion, or invention, and Soccermetrics, that they reach a prior understanding in respect to the basis on which Soccermetrics will receive and give consideration to the idea, suggestion, or invention. As such, unless you have contacted Soccermetrics in advance to memorialize the confidentiality of disclosures or submissions of ideas, suggestions, or inventions from you, Soccermetrics will accept the submission on a NONCONFIDENTIAL BASIS.

Accordingly, unless you have entered into a specific written understanding with Soccermetrics regarding your submission, Soccermetrics recommends that your content not contain any third party proprietary or confidential information.

Further, unless otherwise agreed in a writing between Soccermetrics and you, Soccermetrics is free to use for any purpose whatsoever and shall own any ideas, concepts, know-how, techniques, and suggestions contained in any communications you send to this Site, including, but not limited to, creating and marketing products or services using such information.

(9) Weblog Comment Policy

The Site contains weblogs that allow for comments from visitors.  Soccermetrics believes that comments add to the quality of the site by permitting reader feedback and contribution to the topics presented on the weblog. You are free to disagree with what is posted, even strongly, but Soccermetrics requests that you do so in a respectful, rational, and civil manner. Comments will not be deleted for disagreeing with Soccermetrics and its weblog authors.  However, comments will be edited or deleted for the following:
