Metaformers Platform Usage Agreement
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com). Metaformers may chose to take actions to delete, modify, or hide content we deem to be offensive.
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.
