This Amendment applies to U.S. Government users of the Site and Services (“You”).

The reason for this Amendment is that You, as a U.S. Government entity, are required when entering into agreements with other parties to follow applicable federal laws and regulations, including those related to ethics; privacy and security; accessibility; federal records; limitations on indemnification; fiscal law constraints; advertising and endorsements; freedom of information; and governing law and dispute resolution forum.

Hypothes.is and Agency (together, the “Parties”) agree to modify the Hypothes.is’s standard Terms of Service, available at https://hypothes.is/terms-of-service/ (the “TOS”) to accommodate Agency’s legal status, its public (in contrast to private) mission, and other special circumstances. Accordingly, the TOS are hereby modified by this Amendment as they pertain to Agency’s use of the Hypothes.is Site and Services.

A. Government entity: “You” within the TOS shall mean the Agency itself and shall not apply to, nor bind (i) the individual(s) who utilize the Hypothes.is Site or Services on Agency’s behalf, or (ii) any individual users who happen to be employed by, or otherwise associated with, the Agency. Hypothes.is will look solely to Agency to enforce any violation or breach of the TOS by such individuals, subject to federal law.

B. Public purpose: Agency shall use the Hypothes.is Site and Services solely in furtherance of Agency’s public purpose. Any requirement(s) set forth within the TOS that use of the Hypothes.is Site and Services be for private, personal and/or non-commerci
