NodeRun Terms of Service
These Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) are a contract between you, the user, and Profound Logic, a corporation with its principal place of business at 4 Executive Circle, Suite 100, Irvine, CA 92614. Profound Logic is the sole owner of the NodeRun product (“NodeRun”). Profound Logic operates NodeRun.com (the “NodeRun Site”), the development IDE, and the Spaces creation service therein. By using the NodeRun Site and any services accessible from the NodeRun Site, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service or any part thereof, your only remedy is to not use the NodeRun Site or any services or products offered on the NodeRun Site or on any other platform, including mobile applications, offered by NodeRun (collectively, the “Service” or “Services”). VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE TERMS OF SERVICE BELOW WILL RESULT IN THE TERMINATION OF YOUR RIGHT TO USE THE SERVICE, AND ANY ACCOUNT THAT YOU MAY HAVE CREATED AS PART OF THE SERVICE. YOU AGREE TO USE THE SERVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK. NodeRun reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
In other words: By creating a NodeRun account and using the community site and IDE, you are agreeing to follow the terms as outlined on this page.
