Terms of Service

Posted August 1st , 2014

We [Notesmartly Inc] [NS] created a productivity platform service called Notesmartly [NS]. We would love for you to use it. Our service is free mostly, and we offer paid upgrades for advanced features. We designed Notesmartly™ to give you as much control and ownership over what you do with your documents as possible. But yet, be responsible in what you publish.

Make sure that none of the prohibited items make way into your public documents or get linked to from your public documents. Prohibited items are things like spam, viruses or hate content. You can store most "objectionable" things in private with no problem except for spam and viruses. It's once it goes public that there's a possibility of you running into trouble. We just need to protect our-self but we have no ill intentions. Promise if you find a Notesmartly hosted public post that you believe violates our terms of service, please contact us at legal@notesmartly.com. (We’re using the wordpress.com terms of service as a template for ours. We have used it as a template and replaced it with our content. It’s under a Creative Commons Share like license which means it's alright. If you liked our variation of it, feel free to use it. If you do, we'd appreciate a link back and so would wordpress.com.)
