Widget and Widget Content
Generally, widgets are tools that you may place on your website, which allow visitors to your website to access and view content on or from another website. A widget is generally defined as a software element providing content or access to content, including feeds and data, which you can add, remove, resize, and reposition. Graphic, text, and search widgets may be comprised of static elements, such as trademarks, images, and icons, and dynamic elements, which include, but are not limited to, photographs, images, ratings, reviews, reports, questions, summaries, text, active links or other source identifiers, and employee or employer related information or other similar materials.
The GreatSchool Widget is a small software module operating within or connecting to GreatSchools’ environment and appearing on a device, website or platform of your designation, which provide you with access to a variety of information and Services. You acknowledge and agree that this module may, without limitation, display GreatSchools’ logos, images and text that link to the GreatSchools website, located at http://www.greatschools.org (the “Site”) or to information and other content located on the Site, search boxes or forms that return or link to information from or on the Site, and attribution, branding or advertising for GreatSchools and third party products (collectively, “Widget Content”).
