Violations & Law Enforcement

If you fail to comply with these terms of service, we may suspend or remove your account at our sole discretion. If your actions were illegal, we may also report you to the authorities. We will provide your information to third parties when required to do so by law.

Money

Use of the service is currently free, and the hosting costs are supported by sales of the iPhone app. As the hosting costs continue to grow, we may need to introduce a "freemium" model in the future, where basic accounts are free, and people can pay for accounts that support larger decks or extra features.

Changes

If we make significant changes to these terms, we will notify you via a message on the website, a message when you sync, or via an email, and you may be required to agree to the updated terms to continue to use the service.

Transfer

In the event of a company acquisition, restructure, or bankruptcy, we may transfer these rights and obligations to the new legal entity.
