Welcome to MyWikis ("we", the "Site", the "Host", the "Wiki farm", the "Company", or the "Service"), a wiki and site hosting service. We are represented by the MyWikis staff ("Staff") and are officially operated by MyWikis staff and MyWikis Holdings with its shareholders.
By using our website and/or services, or your website hosted by us (the "wiki", the "site"), you must agree to these terms before usage of our services or website. (Please note any websites under the domains that MyWikis owns, including but not limited to: mywikis.com, mywikis.org, mywikis.net, mywikis.tk are considered "our website".)
We are based in Texas, United States of America. You are subject to Texan and American law when using MyWikis.
This Terms of Service may change at any time. Should the Terms of Service change, the English version dominates, if there are any versions of the Terms of Service in other languages.
If the Terms change, you must agree to the new terms within thirty (30) days or leave the Service by notifying MyWikis through our Ticketed Support System at https://support.mywikis.com.
While you are on our website, you allow us and our business associates to collect personally-identifiable information. We detail our business associates in Section 8 of these Terms.
By using our website and/or our services, you agree not to hack, force entry, send unsolicited requests, run denial of service attacks, threaten, misuse our services in a manner not allowed by MyWikis, etc. to our servers, services, website, employees, etc.
The Service may set cookies and block you from accessing our site.
If one (hereon referred to as a "User") should choose to register for membership, the User must meet the following requirements and agreements:
User must be 13 years or older (with certain exceptions listed below),
User must accept and be able to comprehend the Terms of Service,
User must never sue or threaten legal action on MyWikis. Any legal dispute between MyWikis and a User or another party must be resolved by arbitration headed by a neutral MyWikis staff member.
Membership can be terminated by Staff or by the User's request. If the User threatens, intimidates, or harasses a Staff member, Staff may terminate that User's membership and block access to MyWikis and its associated services.
Anyone under 13 is welcome to join MyWikis, but due to COPPA regulations, must be represented by a consenting adult who sent a proper notice to the contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we strive to protect you and your data, MyWikis ultimately will not be held responsible for anything undesirable 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 wikis under our private plans, the Service shall not intentially disclose confidential information of the site to any third parties. 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 without prior permission.
Your wiki may use any appropriate copyleft, Creative Commons, or a copyright license.
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 or our payment provider can convert and round to the higher whole number in one's currency, including miscellaneous conversion fees and processing fees processed by our payment provider (PayPal, etc.).
If one wishes to transfer their content away from MyWikis, they must first give a thirty-day (30 day) notice to MyWikis in order to receive a content dump of their wiki.
MyWikis is under no obligation to offer a refund. By paying MyWikis through our payment provider, you agree to forfeit your ability to request a refund.
For corporate users only: If you are a representative of a company, you agree that by requesting a wiki through our wiki creation form, we may use your company's brand and logo only for marketing purposes without explicit notice. This applies regardless of whether you initiate payments to us or not. You agree to allow us to use your company's brand and logo indefinitely. You also agree to hold MyWikis harmless as a result of our usage of your brand. If you do not agree with this clause, you must send MyWikis a written notice through our Ticketed Support System, located at https://support.mywikis.com, indicating you would like to opt-out from our marketing. After we confirm you have been opted out, you will no longer be bound by the terms of this clause.
At any time, Staff may view all and any personal information of Users of the Site for the purpose of operating the Service. Staff may not view your personal information with intent to redistribute it or use it for purposes outside the scope of the Company.
MyWikis reserves the right to distribute your information to authorities with proper jurisdiction.
MyWikis reserves the right to use this information at any time internally without any notice to whomever the information belongs. 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 shall not share this information with anyone except our business associates (i.e. businesses with which we conduct business), MyWikis employees, MyWikis contractors, or any associates of MyWikis. Associates of MyWikis include those who have signed a non-disclosure agreement with the Service.
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 unfortunately decide to do so. However, 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 (our "payments provider"), 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, cannot 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.
What personal data we collect:
On our website and support system: your name, your admin username, your email address, your phone number, and your password for the support website.
On our wikis: your username, your wiki account password, your real name (if you choose to provide it), your gender (if you choose to provide it), your email address (if you choose to provide it), your timezone (if you choose to provide it), your IP address, and the content and images (for private wikis).
Source of data: the MyWikis main website, the MyWikis support website, or any of our wikis that store this information.
Who we share it with: Usernames are public unless your wiki is private. Names given on our website and support system are not shared, but may appear if you provide it on our wikis. For all other data, we do not share your data unless required to be disclosed by law enforcement or governmental institutions with jurisdiction over us.
What we do with the data and why we need to use your data:
Your username is used to identify you publicly on wikis. Your password is encrypted so we do not know its original value, but we use it to keep your account safe.
When creating a wiki, your real name is used to address you on our support website. Your email address and phone number are used to contact you about service updates, wiki creation info, or support ticket information.
If you provide your full name on a wiki, it is used to identify who you are among others. Your gender, if provided, is used to address you with the proper pronouns. Your timezone, if provided, is used to give you your local timezone. Your IP address is only collected on our wikis for spam and doppelganger prevention purposes.
Content and images are used for wiki pages and kept securely in databases/filesystems and only accessible by authentication.
How long we keep the data: All data are kept indefinitely unless you request for us to delete it.
Where we store the data and how it is handled: in each application's database or the filesystem, accessible only through proper authentication. It only flows from the database to the website, or to a staff member's computer during inspection. After inspection, the data are destroyed.
Our data protection officer (DPO) is currently our CTO. Staff are trained to keep your data secure. Sub-processors of data are listed under Section 8 as "our relationship with third parties". Data breaches will be reported within 72 hours via our Twitter account @MyWikis and Medium (https://www.medium.com/mywikis), if not other sources too.
You can see all data we have on you (except for the IP addresses the wikis have collected) through your preferences/profile pages on the respective services. You can request for a history of the IP addresses we have tracked you using on our wikis by placing a request on our support system. While we do not use this information actively except for spam prevention or doppelganger account investigations, you may request for us to delete such information.
