This document outlines the privileges you have as a user of Metaformers products, and the responsibilities we mutually uphold in providing you with access to the Metaformers Platform. This agreement is between you, the user, and us, Metaformers, a Virginia corporation.

If you have any questions, please contact info@metaformers.com for clarification. We welcome honest, well-intentioned dialog with our users.

Purpose of Services

Metaformers strives to build stronger communities by leveraging the vision and resources of local nonprofits and their supporters. Metaformers products and services are designed to create efficiency and transparency for the donors, volunteers, and nonprofits that are solving problems in their communities.

Scope of the Agreement

The Metaformers Platform consists of products using the Metaformers.com internet domain and other products developed by Metaformers and linked from the Metaformers.com website. This agreement governs the usage of the Metaformers Platform. Metaformers products may have additional usage agreements that are amendments to this agreement.

Provisions

Security and Access

You are welcome to create an account on the platform if you meet the legal requirements for account ownership in your jurisdiction. As Metaformers is registered in the United States of America, you must be at least 13 years of age. If you are accessing the Metaformers Platform on behalf of a company or other organization you must have authority to represent that organization.

Metaformers will guard your private credentials, such as password, using industry best practices. In the case of a data breach we will move as quickly and transparently as possible to restore access and ensure service continuity and the privacy of our users. You must also protect your account credentials and maintain access to any external accounts used to authenticate to the platform.

Usability

Metaformers products are built on web and mobile technologies. Modern web browsers and mobile operating systems with all updates applied may be required for the site to function as intended. For web applications, cookies, images, and JavaScript should be turned on. We respect the use of privacy protection tools in your browser. We avoid using plugins, extensions, and other installable software when possible.

To improve the reliability of the platform, Metaformers may use aggregated site usage data. Data that uniquely identifies users is not used in performance monitoring.

Honesty

Metaformers will be direct and honest when communicating publicly. This does not mean that opinions, best practices, and technologies do not change. As Metaformers grows and changes as a business we will update this agreement with clarifications when appropriate. We may use other communication platforms such as email and blogs to discuss changes to our business and the Metaformers Platform.

You must also be honest. When working with nonprofits and community organizations there are documents that require accurate information. We may provide a way to use nicknames or to remain anonymous when allowed, but such means are not always practical and their implementation is not guaranteed.

Freedom From Harassment

If you are made to feel uncomfortable by the activities of users, speak up (email info@metaformers.com). Metaformers may chose to take actions to delete, modify, or hide content we deem to be offensive.

Privacy

We do not disclose your data outside of the normal business purposes of Metaformers and as required by law. Metaformers does not participate in marketing programs or otherwise benefit from access to your personal information. When our software requests access to personal information we will clearly state the reason for the data collection. If you are unsure, please contact us for clarification.

Content Ownership

Metaformers does not claim intellectual property rights over content you create on the platform. Your use of the platform does not grant Metaformers any privilege other than its use on Metaformers properties.

Do not post content you do not own, that reveals secrets you are not authorized to share, is malicious in intent, or otherwise causes harm. Posting content to the Metaformers platform does not indicate that the content will survive forever on our platform, or that we are obligated to display it.

Subscriptions

Some features of the Metaformers platform may require a subscription to access. Fees and terms will be agreed upon at the time of your enrollment in the service and those terms will be an amendment to this agreement.

If Metaformers is unable to collect subscription fees, your access to premium features may be revoked. Your cancellation of a subscription will be effective on the first day of the following month. Refunds and credits may be given at the discretion of Metaformers.

No Warranty

Metaformers provides the platform with the hope it can make our communities better. We provide no warranty or guarantee that we can achieve that goal. In fact, Metaformers offers no warranty or guarantee of any kind.

Metaformers provides its products as is. Your choice to use them, and your interpretation of data and the results of its use are completely your responsibility. Metaformers is not responsible for any damages or losses resulting from the use of the Metaformers Platform or content derived from the platform.

WHERE SUCH WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS AND/OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE PROHIBITED BY LAW, WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU, IF ANY, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF MONEY YOU PAID, IF ANY, TO USE THE SERVICE.

(Aside: We try really hard to do the right things, but mistakes happen. We want to focus on innovation and driving down costs for nonprofits and finding ways to strengthen communities. By waiving any warranty claims you help us to keep getting better and moving forward.)
