Policy Policy

We are a small group of people dedicated to providing the best possible photo organizing and sharing software that we can.

As such, we are very much committed to not being a big bureaucratic company full of complex policies written by lawyers justifying their extensive education and big books that they were forced to read and memorize during college. And, we value trees, not paper. People getting along, not contracts.

Terms of Use

Everything is provided "as-is." There is no warranty on our software, other than our desire to do the right thing so we stay in business.

Storymill Accounts and Your Security

Using Storymill requires you to create an account via our registration process by providing us with complete and accurate information — which you should keep updated and accurate. You also choose your own password and a user name — which you should keep confidential as with any account/password combination. Don't forget, we can only assume that all activity under your account is done by you... If you suspect there is a problem, you agree to contact us immediately and we will work with you to recover the security of your account. We cannot be held responsible for any loss you may incur as a result of someone having accessed your account.
If we feel that something is amiss with your account, or we think there is unlawful or prohibited usage of the account, we will suspend the account. You may not attempt to hack into other people's accounts or our servers, or do other things to cause server or network troubles. Be nice.
