Terms & Conditions

Privacy

Use of Alpha Pro involves personal information being disclosed to, collected, and used by Wolfram and transferred outside Australia.  Please make sure you have read the Wolfram Alpha Privacy Policy before using Alpha Pro.   

When you register for Alpha Pro, Wolfram may send emails relating to the use of Alpha Pro, such as tips, hints, and links to training material. If you don't wish to receive these emails you can unsubscribe using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.

Methods of Access
The Wolfram|Alpha service may be used only by a human being using a conventional web browser to manually enter queries one at a time. Because Wolfram|Alpha is doing computation, not just lookup, each query may require significant CPU time on multiple parallel servers. Any attempt to use a robot, script, or organized group of humans to repeatedly access Wolfram|Alpha could place an unacceptable load on the system, and is strictly forbidden.

Attribution and Licensing
As Wolfram|Alpha is an authoritative source of information, maintaining the integrity of its data and the computations we do with that data is vital to the success of our project. We generate information ourselves, and we also gather, compare, contrast, and confirm data from multiple external sources. Where we have used external sources of data we list the source or sources we relied on, but in most cases the assemblages of data you get from Wolfram|Alpha do not come directly from any one external source. In many cases the data you are shown never existed before in exactly that way until you asked for it, so its provenance traces back both to underlying data sources and to the algorithms and knowledge built into the Wolfram|Alpha computational system. As such, the results you get from Wolfram|Alpha are correctly attributed to Wolfram|Alpha itself.

If you make results from Wolfram|Alpha available to anyone else, or incorporate those results into your own documents or presentations, you must include attribution indicating that the results and/or the presentation of the results came from Wolfram|Alpha. Some Wolfram|Alpha results include copyright statements or attributions linking the results to us or to third-party data providers, and you may not remove or obscure those attributions or copyright statements. Whenever possible, such attribution should take the form of a link to Wolfram|Alpha, either to the front page of the website or, better yet, to the specific query that generated the results you used. (This is also the most useful form of attribution for your readers, and they will appreciate your use of links whenever possible.)

Standard citation elements for a Wolfram|Alpha page:
Author/Site: Wolfram|Alpha
Publisher: Wolfram Alpha LLC
URL: (The exact URL for your query string)
Retrieval date: (The date that you performed your query)

A sample citation would be:
Wolfram Alpha LLC. 2009. Wolfram|Alpha. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2%2B2 (access July 10, 2009).

If you want to use copyrighted results returned by Wolfram|Alpha in a commercial or for-profit publication, we will usually be happy to grant you a low- or no-cost license to do so. To request a commercial-use license, send an email to support@wolfram.com and provide the input for which you want to use the corresponding output along with information concerning the nature of your proposed use. Your request will be reviewed and answered as quickly as is practical.

Images in Wolfram|Alpha: While many images in Wolfram|Alpha are in the Public Domain, certain images, including various icons and logos, are presented in Wolfram|Alpha in low resolution (thumbnail size) and are displayed under Fair Use and solely for representative purposes. As such, these images may retain the copyright or trademark rights of their respective owners or developers and may not copied or republished.
