You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc. or “load testers” that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the Praxis servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a Praxis application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed.

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Service and your use of the Praxis Service. We don’t support or encourage illegal consumption of alcohol or tobacco, so there.
