1. What you can do on this Website
We make this Website available to you and others to help everyone better understand our open source projects. In exchange, we need you to make the following commitments:(a) Who can use the Website

The Website is made available free of charge and the Services are available only for informational purposes. We make no representations or warranties of any kind as to the accuracy, currency, or completeness of the information and other materials made available through the Website and are not liable for any decisions you may make in reliance on this content.
3. Limits on Liability
We work hard to provide the best Website and Services we can and to specify clear guidelines for everyone who uses them. Our Website and Services, however, are provided "as is," and we make no guarantees that they always will be safe, secure, or error-free, that they will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections or content will be accurate, current and complete. To the extent permitted by law, we also DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT IN RELATION TO THE WEBSITE, THE SERVICES AND THEIR CONTENT. We do not control or direct what people and others do or say, and we are not responsible for their actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or any content they share (including offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful, and other objectionable content). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties, in which case parts of this disclaimer may not apply to you.
We cannot predict when issues might arise with our Website and Services. Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstance will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms, the Website or the Services, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Website or the Services will not exceed $100.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so therefore depending on the country where you reside some of these exclusions and limitations may not apply to you.
We try to provide clear rules so that we can limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and us. If a dispute does arise, however, it's useful to know up front where it can be resolved and what laws will apply.
For any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms, the Website and/or the Services ("claim"), you agree that it will be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County. You also agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of the State of California will govern these Terms and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
The preceding provision regarding applicable law and venue does not apply if you are a consumer based in the European Union. If you are a consumer based in the European Union, these Terms will be subject to the laws of your country of residence and you may bring a claim in front of those courts.
6. Other important terms
These Terms make up the entire agreement between you and Meta Platforms, Inc. regarding your use of our Services and this Website. They supersede any prior agreements.
If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to enforce any of these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms must be made in writing and signed by us.
You will not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these Terms or your access to and use of the Website or Services.

We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
