They must be 13 years or older (with certain exceptions listed below),
They must accept and be able to comprehend the Terms of Service,
They must never sue, or threaten legal action on MyWikis. Any legal dispute between MyWikis and its clients or another party must be resolved by arbitration headed by a neutral MyWikis staff member.
Membership can be terminated by Staff and anyone who can effectively stop the user or remove the user from the database, for whatever reason whatever.
Anyone under 13 is welcome to join MyWikis, but must be represented by one who is 13 or older, through a consenting adult who sent a proper notice to the contact email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
MyWikis will not be responsible for anything that happens to any users. It is up to you to use MyWikis' service, and also up to you, the user, to be prepared to incur all costs and to assume all liabilities that occur as a direct or indirect result of using MyWikis' websites and/or services.
By using our services and/or our website, you agree to not sue or file legal action against the Service to collect any profits as a result of any mistakes, financial losses, security breaches, acts of God, or other unfortunate events that might occur due to MyWikis or any of its associates, partners, employees, or other users.
You agree that the Service will attempt to notify you, but is not required to do so, when you have violated any part, or if we have invoked any clauses of our Terms.
MyWikis is not responsible for sensitive subjects posted by other users per Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. There will be no warning and there shall not be a warning anywhere on the MyWikis websites for such material, except here. By using our services and/or our website, you agree to not sue or file legal action against the Service for such content. You also agree that the protection of children from sensitive topics is under the User's liability, never MyWikis' liability.
The Service will not host wikis containing the following content: pornography, sensitive topics (to be determined by the Service), or generally "Not Safe For Work".
Our hosting only guarantees a website for the User, with no guarantee for any extra benefits; the Service will try its best to deliver a working MediaWiki, but there are no guarantees in case of unforseen hardship that prevents this goal from being delivered. The Service may, at any time, terminate your hosting services with us, if deemed appropriate or necessary by the judgement of the Service.
Support is provided to the User by the Service, but the Service makes no guarantee of response to inquiries about the Service, although the Service will make an effort to do so.
For private sites, the Service shall not intentially disclose confidential information of the site, but if this occurs accidentally, Section 3 of this Terms of Service applies.
We don't wish for your wiki's content to be deleted, but if it violates the Terms of Service, is accidentally deleted, violates United States or Texas law, or the Service is unable to continue to host the wiki due to spam or other unrecoverable circumstances, you agree to hold the Service harmless per Section 3 of these Terms.
In addition, if we feel that your wiki's content poses a threat or harm to our business, or if we have another reasonable and valid concern against your wiki's content being hosted, you agree to allow us to remove and expunge said content.
Your wiki may use any appropriate copyleft or Creative Commons license. Copyrighted content is also allowed.
If MyWikis offers an alternative contract for a customer or party, the Terms of Service may be superseded and overridden by that contract. This only applies to the affected customer or party.
MyWikis has the right to revoke access to accessing or editing any of our services or websites at any time.
If one cannot pay with United States Dollars, MyWikis Staff are subject to convert and round to the higher whole number in one's currency, including miscellaneous conversion fees and processing fees processed by authorized third parties (PayPal, etc.).
If one wishes to transfer their content away from MyWikis, they must first fully notify MyWikis Staff or be subject to copyright violation.
At any time any employee who has legal access to MyWikis' databases may view all and any personal information, including passwords, IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, personal information, and more.
MyWikis reserves the right to distribute your information to authorities and our partners who request them.
MyWikis reserves the right to use this information at any time, for legal and meaningful business purposes, without any notice. The Service will not sell this information to third-parties directly; see Section 8 for our disclaimer regarding the sale of information by Google and PayPal and other companies, over which we have no control.
MyWikis reserves the right to give this information to anybody who has a valid reason and has been verified to receive sensitive information.
All forms submitted to the site can be stored in our databases. By submitting forms, you agree that these forms can be stored in our databases.
MyWikis reserves the right to store cookies on your computer. By using our website, you agree that cookies may be stored on your computer at any time without warning.
We use certain Google services, like AdSense and Analytics, on our site, so we may serve you better by earning revenue or collecting relevant data, respectively. We can't control what Google does with your visit data, but the Service itself does not directly sell the User's information to third parties. Other services that the service uses, like Google or PayPal, may decide to do so (unfortunately), but you agree that MyWikis does not have control over this data collection, nor can MyWikis guarantee privacy from the selling of information as a result of these other services's (Google, PayPal, etc.) data collection methods. Payments are handled by PayPal, and what they do with your data is regulated by themselves, as well as any jurisdiction PayPal falls under.
We will never establish a direct link to wholesale buyers or sellers of Big Data. However, our above partners, to be clear, will never be held accountable to this clause. We will always try our best to ensure our users' data is kept private, as we wish as well, but there are certain limits to how private we may keep our users.
