"By “Third-Party Viewer,” we mean any third-party software client on
any device that logs into our servers that support Second Life.
Third-Party Viewers include software for viewing Second Life, any chat
clients, utilities, bots, and proxies as well as applications that may
not be listed in our Viewer Directory."
