Please read these Terms & Conditions, Amazon.com Privacy Notice, and the Amazon.com Conditions of Use (collectively, the "Agreement") before using the Amazon Silk browser software and related services (collectively, "Amazon Silk"). By choosing a browser operating mode and installing, using, or accessing Amazon Silk, you accept and agree to be bound by this Agreement. If you don't want to be bound by the Agreement, exit the browser and do not install, use, or access Amazon Silk.
Amazon Silk optimizes and accelerates the delivery of web content by using Amazon's cloud computing services. Therefore, like most Internet service providers and similar services that enable you to access the Web, the content of web pages you visit using Amazon Silk passes through our servers and may be cached to improve performance on subsequent page loads.
Amazon Silk routes secure (SSL) web page requests directly from your computer to origin servers so they do not pass through Amazon servers. Using the experimental streaming viewer will route content for the Flash-enabled site through Amazon's servers if the cloud accelerator feature is enabled.
Amazon Silk also temporarily logs web addresses -- known as uniform resource locators ("URLs") -- for the web pages it serves. We do not associate these URLs with your identity, and we generally do not keep this information for longer than 30 days.
You can also choose to operate Amazon Silk in basic or "off-cloud" mode. Off-cloud mode allows web pages generally to go directly to your computer rather than pass through our servers. Amazon Silk in off-cloud mode still delivers a fast browsing experience, but does not take advantage of Amazon's cloud computing services to speed up web content delivery.
If you use Amazon Silk on a Kindle device, your device may send crash reports to Amazon. These reports may contain identifiers such as IP or MAC addresses. We may use these crash reports to help us troubleshoot the browser and improve its performance.
In case of any termination, you must cease all use of Amazon Silk, including the Software. Amazon may also terminate your right to use Amazon Silk at any time, and in such event may modify it to make it inoperable.
