"Non-human visitors" include, but are not limited to, web spiders, bots, indexers, robots, crawlers, or harvesters. Such non-human visitors are restricted from taxing the resources of this website beyond what would be typical of a human visitor.

Because of their potential for abuse, in consideration for access to the site, non-human visitors are required to read and observe the industry-standard restrictions as set forth in the robots.txt file

As specified by the "no-email-collection" meta-tag and the robots.txt file, email addresses on this site are considered proprietary intellectual property of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. These email addresses are provided for human visitors alone, and have value in part because they are only accessible to said human visitors. Intentional collection, harvesting, gathering, or otherwise storing email addresses by non-human visitors is recognized under this agreement as theft or diminution of value of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's intellectual property and expressly prohibited.
