We've designed our web sites to be useful, informative and fun. We hope we've succeeded — and we hope you'll let us know how we can make them even better.
All we ask in return is that you abide by the Terms and Conditions that follow. Please read them carefully, because by using our web sites you agree to them. If you do not agree to them, please do not use our web sites.
Except as expressly provided below, you agree not to reuse material from www.mccain.com or from any other web site operated by McCain.
In particular, you agree not to copy, distribute, republish, upload, post or transmit anything unless you receive our written consent first. The only exceptions are as follows:
As a member of the public, McCain grants to you a limited license to display on your computer, print, download and use the underlying HTML text, audio clips, video clips and other content that is made available to you on our web sites, for personal, informational, non-commercial purposes only, provided that:

Normal exceptions regarding the reproduction and redistribution of content authorized for release to the media apply.
You agree that you will not use any McCain content in a way that suggests any association, affiliation or endorsement between you or your products and those of McCain.
