Terms of Service

Last revised on March 1 st , 2016

  1. The Gist

    TheCore Inc. operates the TheCore service, which we hope you use. If you use it, please use it responsibly. If you don’t, we’ll have to terminate your account. For paid accounts, you’ll be charged on a monthly basis. You can cancel anytime, but there are no refunds. You own the source code that you provide to TheCore and you’re responsible for keeping it safe. You expressly understand and agree that your use of the service is at your sole risk and that the service is provided “as is” and “as available.”.
    The Terms of Service, TheCore itself, and our prices can change at any time. We’ll warn you 30 days in advance of any price changes. We’ll try to warn you about major changes to the Terms of Service or TheCore, but we make no guarantees.
    That’s the basic idea, but You must read through the entire Terms of Service below and agree with all the details before You use any of our sites (whether or not you have created an account).
