Legal and Service Information

tl;dr: We respect your privacy and just ask you be nice in return.

This document applies to all Netsyms Technologies products and services.  This document should be considered our Terms of Service agreement.  If a product or service specifies extra conditions, those also apply.  If a product or service has conditions that contradict this document in part or in whole, the product-specific terms take precedence over this document.  If you receive official correspondence from Netsyms Technologies directing you on additional terms and conditions, consider them part of this document.  This document is enforced and followed with respect to all users worldwide, no matter their race, nationality, or other conditions.

You have to agree to these to have an account with us.  If you don't agree, immediately terminate use of all our services and products and contact us.  We may be able to grant you an exception for your particular scenario.  Otherwise, we will assist you in deleting your accounts and information.

Some content is banned.  We don't have to give you space on our servers if we don't want to.  If we find objectionable content, it will be removed.  Examples of such content: pornography, hate speech, pro-abortion or pro-gay "marriage" propaganda, illegal or illicit activities, and questionable drug use.  We may remove such content without warning, although we will usually give you an opportunity to retrieve it before it is permanently deleted.  If you have doubts about your content falling foul of this clause, contact us and we will decide.  You should also read our beliefs.  This applies to any content that passes through or resides on any of our servers.  There is no point complaining if we don't allow certain content, we will just ban you and/or report you to authorities if you persist.

We only store the information essential to your use of our services.  We don't like companies tracking us any more than you do.  We only store data you give us (plus opt-out analytics, see below), such as files you upload, data you submit in a form, and your computer's IP address.  Under normal conditions, we keep server logs no longer than one month.  Netsyms services may store cookies on your machine to keep you logged in to the services.  Cookies may also be used for analytical purposes, so we can see how our services are being used.  If you do not wish us to track your service usage, enable Do-Not-Track in your web browser or click here.  If you wish to have your personal information removed from our systems, or wish to close your account(s), contact us and we will be happy to assist you.  Note, however, that information removal can possibly render you unable to use our programs.  We are not responsible if your information removal results in a loss on your part, whether financial or otherwise.  You may request a copy of part or all of your data by opening a support ticket.

Your personal data is safe with us.  We will never sell your information to anybody, not even our own grandma.  Never ever.  Sometimes we do take a peek to make sure everything goes smoothly for all our users, but we never tell anyone else.  We like to think we handle your data better than Google or Facebook.  Again, if you ever want something removed and you can't find a button to do it, contact us at the address above.

Source Code.  You may request source code of any of our applications.  We would prefer if you only use the source code for educational or non-profit use.  Before you ask us, check our Git server, which we use for many of our apps.  To request source code, contact us.

Online Services.  We are not responsible in any way for the activities of users on our online services.  Please contact us if a user is affecting the well-being of the service or other people.  Include all relevant information, detailing everything you can about the incident.  You may also contact us for other issues regarding conduct.  We may or may not reply, but appropriate action will be performed at our discretion.  If you are misusing, abusing, or putting a large amount of strain on our systems, we will ask you to stop or to pay a small usage fee.  If you disregard our requests, we reserve the right to terminate your account.

Physical Services.  We do not offer a warranty on physical goods, except as required by law.  We can try to contact the vendor we purchased the goods from for a refund or exchange.  If we physically break your computer because we screwed up, we will fix that for free.  You should always backup your data, even if there is no problem.  Because of that, we offer no guarantee that your digital data will be intact, especially if we are installing an operating system or cleaning a virus infection.  Again, keep backup copies of your important files.

Don't sue us.  We are not liable if bad stuff happens, even if it's our software's fault. Bugs happen. Or, in lawyer-speak:
Netsyms Technologies’ digital products and services are provided by the copyright holders and contributors "as is" and any express or implied warranties, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are disclaimed. In no event shall the copyright holder or contributors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of these digital products and services, even if advised of the possibility of such damage.
