   As of July 10th, 2013  
  Please read this agreement carefully before using the services offered by IFTTT Inc. ("IFTTT"). By using the website ifttt.com (the "Site") and other features, services or applications (including without limitation mobile applications (“Mobile Apps”)) offered by IFTTT (collectively, the "Service"), you agree to be bound by these terms of use (the "Terms of Use" or "TOU"). If you disagree with any of the terms below, you will not have a right to use the Service. The individual who accepts these terms and conditions, must be aged 18 years or older. You certify to IFTTT that if you are an individual (i.e., not a corporation) you are at least 18 years of age. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use the Service and access the Site, and take full responsibility for the selection and use of the Service and access of the Site. These Terms of Use are void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Site and use the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions. 

 IFTTT reserves the right, at its discretion, to update and change, from time to time, these Terms of Use. IFTTT may change these Terms of Use by posting a new version on the Site. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Service after such change constitutes acceptance of such changes. 

 The purpose of the Site and Service is to create statements that link content between devices and social networking and other sites including Twitter, Facebook, and others, as well as mobile applications. This Agreement applies to all users of the Site and Service including users who create channels or statements, APIs, or use other services on the Site, Service and Mobile Apps. The Service is accessed by you ("User" or "you") under the following terms and conditions. 

 Access To The Site And Service 

 Subject to the terms and conditions of this TOU, IFTTT may offer to provide the Service, as described more fully on the Site, solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. The Service shall include, but not be limited to, any services IFTTT performs for you, as well as the offering of any materials displayed or performed on the Site or the Service (including, but not limited to text, graphics, images, illustrations, audio clips and video clips, also known as the "Content"). IFTTT may change, suspend or discontinue the Service including any Content for any reason, at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or content. IFTTT may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service without notice or liability. 

 IFTTT will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Site and Service are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. However, there will be occasions when the Site and/or Service will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment. Every reasonable step will be taken by IFTTT to minimize such disruption where it is within IFTTT's reasonable control. You agree that IFTTT will not be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance or lack of availability of the Site or the Services. 

 You shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to, access the Site or otherwise use the Service, including, without limitation, mobile phones, modems, hardware, software, data plans, and long distance or local telephone service. You shall be responsible for ensuring that such equipment or ancillary services are compatible with the Service. 

 As a condition to using the Service or in order to create certain statements through the Service, you may be required to supply IFTTT with certain registration information, including registration information for mobile phones, other mobile devices, or third party sites or services you access through IFTTT. You shall provide IFTTT with your own accurate, complete, and updated registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of this TOU, which may result in immediate termination of your access to and/or use of the Site or Service. You may not (i) select or use as your username a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; or (ii) use as your username a name subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization; or (iii) use as your username a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene. IFTTT reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel a username in its discretion. You shall not use another user's account or any other person's registration information for the Service, any other mobile phones or other mobile devices, or any third party services you access through the Service, without that person's permission. 

 Subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms of Use, you may use the Site and the Service and any updates provided by IFTTT (in its sole discretion). Your right to use the Site and Service continues until it is terminated by either party. You may terminate by discontinuing use of all or any of the Site or Service. IFTTT may terminate at any time for any reason. Your use terminates automatically if (i) you violate any term of these Terms of Use, (ii) IFTTT publicly posts a written notice of termination on the Site, (iii) IFTTT sends a written notice of termination to you, or (iv) IFTTT ceases providing access to the Site or the Service to you. For purposes of clarity, termination of use does not constitute termination of this TOU. 

 Any communication by you to IFTTT is subject to this TOU, and you grant to IFTTT all rights to use and incorporate such contents in the Site or the Service or its documentation.
