Terms of Use

Modified August 22, 2012

Our Services

We provide a text-editing interface to existing cloud storage intended to allow developers to code using a browser as their editing environment.
  • We do not store your files. Your files can be stored in your cloud solution and your browser's localStorage and DOM. We cannot be responsible for loss of data in either your cloud or browser. Please save often and keep a backup copy of the data on your cloud if possible.
  • We relay files and can access your cloud. Our servers must act as a middle-man in order to interface the web application with your cloud.

Privacy Policy

We ask that you review the terms of our Privacy Policy, so that you are aware of how we collect and use your information. Because our services are used by people all over the world, personal information that we collect may be stored and processed in the United States of America or any other country in which we or our agents maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside your country.

Third-party Websites and Resources

You are solely responsible for your use of any third-party websites or resources. Although we interface with third-party websites and resources, we do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for their availability, reliability, accuracy or the related content, products, or services (including, without limitation, any viruses, loss of data, or other disabling features), nor do we have any obligation to monitor such third-party content.

Restrictions

  • While you are free to alter functionality in the user-interface of the web application through browser extensions, you may not alter the way file operations (located at /cgi-bin/file-op.py) are performed. File Operations interface with your cloud and use lots of our resources. Specifically, you may not use file operations to perform batch (bulk) operations to files. All file operations should be triggered by user interface actions similar to the default methodology.
  • You may not use this service for illegal activities. This includes, but is not limited to, copyright infringement, tampering with unauthorized computer systems, intentional disruption of services, transferring any illegal files or information, or developing software designed to do anything illegal.

Termination

Though we hope you will stay and continue to use our services, you can stop using our services any time. In certain (hopefully unlikely) circumstances it may be necessary for us to to terminate part or all of our services, terminate these Terms of Use, block your account or access, or ban you as a user. If your account or access is blocked or otherwise terminated for any reason, your data should be available in the your cloud solution directly. We reserve the right to suspend or end the services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. Even after your use and participation are banned, blocked or otherwise suspended, these Terms of Use will remain in effect with respect to relevant provisions.

Disputes and Jurisdiction

If you seek to file a legal claim against us, you agree to file and resolve it exclusively in a state or federal court located in Illinois. You also agree that the laws of the State of Illinois and, to the extent applicable, the laws of the United States of America will govern these Terms of Use, as well as any legal claim that might arise between you and us (without reference to conflict of laws principles). You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, the courts located in Illinois in any legal action or proceeding relating to us or these Terms of Use.

To ensure that disputes are dealt with soon after they arise, you agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you might have arising out of or related to use of our services or these Terms of Use must be filed within the applicable statute of limitations or, if earlier, one (1) year after the pertinent facts underlying such claim or cause of action could have been discovered with reasonable diligence (or be forever barred).

Disclaimers

We hope to provide a useful service to developers. We provide these services on an "as is" and "as available" basis, and we expressly disclaim all express or implied warranties of all kinds, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We make no warranty that our services will meet your requirements, be safe, secure, uninterrupted, timely, accurate, or error-free, or that your information will be secure.

We are not responsible for the content, data, or actions of third parties, and you release us, our directors, officers, employees, and agents from any claims and damages, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any claim you have against any such third parties. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through or from our services creates any warranty not expressly stated in these Terms of Use.

Any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through your use of our services is done at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material. You agree that we have no responsibility or liability for the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any content or communication maintained by the service. We retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time with or without notice.

Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the types of disclaimers in this section, so they may not apply to you either in part or in full depending on the law.

Limitation on Liability

We will not be liable to you or to any other party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses, regardless of whether we were advised of the possibility of such damage. In no event shall our liability exceed one thousand U.S. dollars (USD 1000.00) in aggregate. In the case that applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you, although our liability will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Modifications to these Terms of Use

Because it may be necessary to modify these Terms of Use from time to time, we may provide notice of such modifications. However, we ask that you please periodically review the most up-to-date version of these Terms of Use. Your continued use of our services after the new Terms of Use become official constitutes an acceptance of these Terms of Use on your part. For the protection of the us and other users like yourself, if you do not agree with our Terms of Use, you cannot use our services.

Other Terms

These Terms of Use do not create an employment, agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between you and us. If you have not signed a separate agreement with us, these Terms of Use are the entire agreement between you and us. If there is any conflict between these Terms of Use and a signed written agreement between you and us, the signed agreement will control.

You agree that we may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms of Use, by email. If in any circumstance, we do not apply or enforce any provision of these Terms of Use, it is not a waiver of that provision.

These Terms of Use were written in English (U.S.). While we hope that possible translations of these Terms of Use are accurate, in the event of any differences in meaning between the original English version and a translation, the original English version takes precedence.

If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms of Use is found unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and all other provisions of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect.
