Thanks for choosing Censtats! This document outlines the Terms of Service. It's written in a more human language than other policies you might find, because we (SecretKeys LLC, owners of Censtats) believe it's important to understand this stuff. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Censtats is a service provided by SecretKeys LLC. This document was last updated . By using Censtats, you hereby agree to these terms, so please read them carefully.
By using Censtats, you agree that you aren't using it for anything illegal, and that you've ensured it's all good to go in whatever jurisdiction you live or operate in.
You agree not to misuse Censtats or any of it's associated APIs. Poking around is one thing, but repeated misuse and/or anything that could be construed as malicious intent will be blocked. Using Censtats gives you no rights to the intellectual property of Censtats itself.
Some Censtats pages (for example, our blog) may display or link to content that is not necessarily co-signed by us. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law.
But that doesn't necessarily mean that we review and catch all instances of said content, so please don’t assume that we do.
Censtats is constantly being improved upon. Sometimes bugs come up, and they get fixed. It's entirely possible that a feature could end up being removed, changed, or otherwise altered in some way. While we reserve the right to do this, there will always be a heads up thrown that this is happening if it significantly alters functionality.
Censtats is provided using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care, and the goal is that you benefit from using it. However, there are certain things that are not promised about the service:
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, Censtats DOES NOT MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, I DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. SERVICES PROVIDED "AS IS".
