Sharing things openly and transparently helps a lot of people. With this being our first startup and all, we’re so grateful when that happens. In our research on crafting our terms of service we figured that it makes sense to minimize re-inventing the wheel. Gladly, we discovered the cool people at Editorially. They kindly released their very readable, plain-English version under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license so other services (like ours) can benefit from their learning and work. We adapted their terms of service to create our own version – it works perfectly well. So a big uthanku to Editorially. (Check out their blog post on Writing a better terms of service … sure it’s not the most riveting topic but worth looking at).
