SpeedCurve Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

This is a legally binding contract between you and SpeedCurve Limited. Please make sure you read it, because it is important. We’ve tried to make it as clear as possible, but we welcome your feedback to support@speedcurve.com if you have suggestions or questions.

1. Definitions

We’re going to use some shorthand to make this easier to read. When we say "site," we mean speedcurve.com and the services offered through that site. When we say "we," "us," or "our," we mean SpeedCurve Limited. When we say "your content," we mean any text, sound, graphics or other material which you post, upload, or otherwise share on the site; similarly, when we say "SpeedCurve content," we mean the copyrightable text, sound, graphics, and other material owned by SpeedCurve Limited. And when we say "terms," we mean these terms of service.

2. Accepting these terms

Please read these terms before using the site. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not register for the site. If we make material changes to these terms, we’ll let you know either through the site or via email (at the email address you provide). If you do not agree to those changes, you may cancel your account. If we do not hear from you within ten days, the revised terms will apply to you.

3. Privacy policy

When you register with the site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information, including your name, email address and URLs for your website. We will store your personal information, but will not share it with any third parties, except as necessary to provide the services offered, to monitor usage, and to improve the service. For example, we may store your personal information along with your files and data on a third party server such as Amazon Web Services; or we may use a third party analytics tool like Google Analytics to learn how you are using SpeedCurve, and how we can improve that experience. We also use your personal information to send you notifications about the service and to respond to customer support requests.

We will never share your personal information with advertisers or send you promotions for unrelated services.

We will also aggregate user information and perform statistical analyses of the collective behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics, and to analyze how to improve our service. We may share this information with third parties (such as Google Analytics), but such aggregate information does not contain personal information. In addition, we may compile and disclose aggregate information about our users for promotional or other purposes. For example, we might want to disclose that a certain percentage of our users are located within a particular geographic area or work most frequently in the mornings.

We use session and login cookies, which help us keep track of when a person is logged in and determine the content and features people use. We will also capture login timestamps, and usage statistics.

We will communicate with you via email, to the email address you provide to us. Some communications, such as emails informing you of new features, may be unsubscribed to via the unsubscribe link in the email. If you would like to cease all communications from us, please send an email to support@speedcurve.com
