Terms of Use

We know. You’ve seen this a million times before, and your finger is poised to scroll at supersonic speeds to the bottom and get this thing over with. We’re just as bored as you. But this is important.

We’ve created these terms of use in a simple, straight forward format. This is a legal document; it’s important to know what you are agreeing to. By using this website, you are agreeing to these terms of use. The terms of this agreement are subject to modification from time to time, and the effective date of the current terms is set out at the end of the page. We will inform you if anything within this agreement changes. It is also important that you read our Privacy Policy; by agreeing to these terms, you are affirming that you have read, understood, and agree to our Privacy Policy.

Thanks for your time!

LEGAL AGREEMENT

This is a legally binding agreement between you and the Company. This agreement dictates how you are allowed to use this website and how you interact with the Company and Formli and all websites operated by Formli (collectively, “Formli”).

This agreement and the terms of use it contains apply both to your use of such websites and to any other services Formli may provide (such as assistance in creating content or placing advertisements of messages).

WHO CAN USE FORMLI

Users of Formli (or other websites or services of Formli) need to be over the age of 13. If anyone over 13 but under the age of 18 wishes to use this website, their legal guardian needs to set up their account, approve their usage of the site, and be present when they use it. If you are a foreign national without legal permanent resident status in the U.S. (ie. a green card holder), you are not permitted to buy or place political messages through our website or other services. Political messages are any messages that express advocacy for the election or defeat of a candidate for political office. Any ad that solicits funds for a political campaign or committee are also forbidden for Foreign Nationals. If you are a citizen of Cuba, Iran, Sudan, the Crimean Region, Syria, North Korea or any entities that are the target of U.S. or European Union sectoral sanctions, you are not permitted to use this website or other services for any purpose. If you are subject to legal restrictions on your activities, you are responsible for assuring that your use of our websites and services complies with those restrictions. For example, if you are a non-profit organization, you are responsible for assuring that your use of this website is consistent with applicable limitations on political activities.

Formli allows you to create and place advertisements and messages on other websites and provides agency services. Make sure you don’t make messages or behave in any way that would violate the terms of service or advertising policies of such other websites. The platforms that may be accessible through Formli and whose policies must not be violated include Bing, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, Spotify, and Twitter. Bing’s advertising policies can be found here. Facebook’s advertising policies can be found here. Google’s advertising policies can be found here. LinkedIn’s advertising policies can be found here. Pinterest’s advertising policies can be found here. Snapchat’s terms of service can be found here. Spotify’s advertising policies can be found here. Twitter’s advertising policies can be found here. Any platforms that we provide access to in the future will also have terms of service that you will need to look over before you make messages, place advertisements, or use their websites.

HOW TO ACT

Formli puts power in the user’s hands. It is important that all users of our websites and services behave responsibly and respectfully. Any illegal activity, harassment or abuse, publishing or unauthorized use of personal information, unauthorized use of any photographs or other content, fraudulent claims or schemes, impersonation, username stealing/selling/squatting, intellectual property infringement, spam, malware distribution, claims of endorsement by Formli, degradation, unauthorized data mining, or unauthorized penetration testing is forbidden. If you do any of these things we have the right to ban you from our websites, discontinue providing any other services to you, and pursue any legal action we deem appropriate.

CREATING MESSAGES

Formli allows you to create and place messages on other websites. While we want to facilitate your creation of effective advertisements, we are not responsible for their content or success. Formli is not responsible for and cannot be sued over any lack of advertisement effectiveness; we are not responsible for any negative backlash that your ad may receive; we are not responsible for any lost revenue or public scrutiny that may come about because of your ad. Additionally, we are not responsible for the timeliness of your advertisement; your ad will not run until after it has passed our and the review process of the platforms on which it is placed. We reserve the right to block any or all messages. You are responsible for assuring that the content of any messages you create or place is accurate, complies with any legal restrictions on your activities (see Section Two and Section Four above and Section Thirteen below), and does not violate anyone else’s rights (see Section Twelve below).

WHAT WE STAND FOR

We offer users the ability to communicate their ideas through an extremely effective medium. While we stand for free speech and discourse, we by no means endorse or condone any or all of the views that are propagated through our websites. We do not screen and review all content; if something you believe is objectionable or inappropriate is placed through our website, please report it to us so that we can review and potentially remove it. However, we are not liable for any damages caused by content created or used by users, whether or not caught by our review process. Further, content removal and user banning is something that we want to do judiciously; it may take time for us to decide whether or not to do this. Our websites allow users to “share” that they have used our website on various social media/websites.

ACCOUNT ACTIONS

As long as you are an eligible user (see Section Two above) and you follow these terms of service, you are free to create and use an account on Formli. Information that you provide us about you needs to be accurate and complete. If you provide false, misleading or incomplete information, we can remove your account. Purchasing and selling of accounts is forbidden. If you lose access to your account, contact us and we will do what we can to help you. If we are unable to grant access to a lost account, we are not responsible. If you wish to delete your account, contact us and we will do so.

SERVICES

Formli offers supplementary agency services. These are services offered beyond the base use of the platform, may be subcontracted, and as noted above are subject to the same terms as the base use of the platform, unless otherwise provided in a separate agreement specifically covering such services. Where such services include assistance in creating advertisements and messages, you remain responsible for their content, success and compliance with any applicable laws or regulations (see Section Five above).

SMS

Experience by Formli is an SMS outbound, customer service, and chatbot-enabled service that allows for interactive digital experiences on the web and through texting. By opting in, you may receive informative, instructive, or question-based messages.

You can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text "STOP" to 330330. After you send the SMS message "STOP" to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from us. If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time and we will start sending SMS messages to you again.

If you are experiencing issues with the messaging program you can reply with the keyword HELP for more assistance, or you can get help directly by emailing talk@formli.com.

Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.

As always, message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. Message frequency may vary. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
