Terms of Service Summary: Here’s an attempt at briefly and concisely summarizing some key points of these Terms of Service in non-legal-jargon.
- You are responsible for using our system in a responsible manner, including uploading only data you should be uploading, abstaining from malicious or illegal behavior, protecting your password, respecting the integrity of the system, and respecting its users and its creators (that’s us!).
- After your trial, you’ll be billed yearly or you can also pay a one-off lifetime license. You can cancel anytime you’d like. If you cancel, your account is archived by default. You can tell us to delete your data, if you don’t want it archived.
- As the creators and curators of the system, we can change, add, and remove things, and we can also limit, throttle, suspend, or discontinue your account if it is deemed necessary.
- You acknowledge that we cannot guarantee 100% up-time for the service, and we cannot guarantee 100% security of your data (No-one can offer this level of guarantee)
