Thank you for your interest in Open Citrination, the open, cloud-based, artificial intelligence platform service for materials and chemicals located at citrination.com and developed by Citrine Informatics, Inc. (“Citrine”) solely for academic, non-profit, or non-commercial use. Your access to and use of Open Citrination and its related services are governed by, and are conditioned upon, your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Open Citrination Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations.

You may not use Open Citrination for any commercial or for-profit purposes, except as expressly provided in these Terms. For example, employees of a university may use Open Citrination to perform academic research, but may not use Open Citrination to perform work as a contractor on projects for a commercial, for-profit company that is not an Authorized Entity (as defined below). Please contact Citrine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about access and use of Citrination, the version of the platform service for commercial or for-profit purposes.

Please note that Citrine may modify these Terms at any time, in its sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the updated Terms on Open Citrination or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use Open Citrination. If you continue to use Open Citrination after we have posted updated Terms, you are agreeing to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, you may not use Open Citrination anymore. Because Open Citrination is evolving over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Open Citrination service, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
