awe.sm is a service provided by us folks here at Snowball Factory, Inc. to track how your content is shared. Currently we only offer paid plans at different monthly prices depending on features and volume of usage. We have designed awe.sm to give you as much control and ownership of your content and data as possible. However, we need to impose some restrictions on how you use awe.sm in order to insure the highest quality service for all of our customers. In particular, make sure that you or your users are not sharing any of the prohibited items listed below through awe.sm (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).
If you find an awe.sm-powered link that you believe violates our terms of service, please contact email@example.com.
(The below Terms of Service are largely based on those of WordPress.com, which the nice people at Automattic were kind enough to make available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. So, you are welcome to repurpose them for your own use. But if you do, be a good sport and shout out the team at Automattic with a link to WordPress.com somewhere on your site.)
Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Service. By completing the registration process and/or accessing or using any part of the Service, you (either an individual or a legal entity that you represent as an authorized employee or agent) ("you" or "You") are stating that you are eligible for an account to access the Service (an "Account") and that you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, then you may not access the Service in any form. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Snowball Factory, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms. The Service is available to individuals who are at least 13 years old.
