Terms of Service
Thanks for using Paperplane.io!
Please read these Terms carefully. By using Paperplane.io or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms. This is a legal agreement.
Let's start with some basics. Here are a few definitions that should help you understand this agreement. Paperplane.io (“Paperplane” or the “Service”) is a web hosting service offered through the URL www.paperplane.io (we’ll refer to it as the “Website”) that allows you easily manage static website content with Dropbox or GitHub. Paperplane.io is owned and operated by Supermatter, LLC, an Indiana limited liability corporation (“Paperplane,” “we,” or “us”). Paperplane has employees, independent contractors, and representatives ("our Team"). As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you're a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”).
In order to use Paperplane, you must:
- be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts;
- complete the registration process;
- agree to the Terms; and
- provide true, complete, and up to date contact information.
By using Paperplane, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use Paperplane in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Paperplane may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you sign up for Paperplane and continues as long as you use the Service. Clicking the button and entering your username means that you’ve officially “signed” the Terms. If you sign up for Paperplane on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.
Closing Your Account
You or Paperplane may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving Notice to the other party. We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, we'll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment. We won’t refund or reimburse you if there’s cause, like a violation of these Terms. Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your emails from our Website.
Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to, whether or not you authorized the use. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only reset your password.
We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships, and we don't arbitrate disputes over who owns an account. You won't request access to or information about an account that's not yours, and you'll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on the content of the emails in that account, and if multiple people or entities are identified in the content, then we'll rely on the contact information listed for that account.
We have 1 monthly plan, offered for $9 per month. This price may be changed from time to time. If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is due for the full month. Payments are due for any month on the same date, or the closest date in that month, to the day you signed up with us and made your first monthly payment (the "Pay Date"). If the Term ends before that payment is due, you’ll still be required to make one payment at the higher level.
As long as you’re a Member or have an outstanding balance with us, you'll provide us with valid credit card information and authorize us to deduct the monthly charges against that credit card. You’ll replace the information for any credit card that expires with information for a different valid credit card. Anyone using a credit card represents and warrants that he or she is authorized to use that credit card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card and won’t be rejected. If, for some reason, we’re unable to process your credit card order, we’ll try to contact you by email and suspend your account until your payment can be processed. Sorry, we don’t accept checks, Bitcoins, steaks, stickers or other methods of exchange. US Dollars only, please.
We’ll give you a refund for a prepaid month if we stop providing our Services to you for a reason that's not laid out in these Terms. You won’t be entitled to a refund from us under any other circumstances. We may offer a refund if a Member applies for one based on the requirements posted on the Website.
We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website and/or sending you a notification by email.
Proprietary Rights Owned by Us
You shall respect our proprietary rights in the Website and the software used to provide Paperplane (proprietary rights include patents, trademarks, service marks, and copyrights).
Proprietary Rights Owned by You

Rules and Abuse
You promise to follow these rules:
- You won't use Paperplane to share songs, videos, or other large binary files

Compliance with Laws
You represent and warrant that your use of Paperplane will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. You’re responsible for determining whether our Services are suitable for you to use in light of any regulations like HIPAA, GLB, EU Data Privacy Laws, or other laws. If you're subject to regulations (like HIPAA) and you use our Service, then we won't be liable if our Service doesn't meet those requirements.
Intentionally left blank. Did you get this far?
Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you assume full responsibility for any loss that results from your use of the Website and the Services, including any downloads from the Website. We and our Team won’t be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages under any circumstances, even if they’re based on negligence or we’ve been advised of the possibility of those damages. Our total liability for all claims made about the Service in any month will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the month before.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the material on the Website and the Service as is. That means we don’t provide warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses (including attorney fees) that result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a "Limitation of Liability" or other provision. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses (including attorney fees) that result from third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms.
If we file an action against you claiming you breached these Terms and we prevail, we’re entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees and any damages or other relief we may be awarded.
If you violate these Terms then we may seek injunctive relief (meaning we may request a court order to stop you) or other equitable relief.
If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.
We and our Team aren’t responsible for the behavior of any advertisers, linked websites, or other Members.
The Fine Print
You may not assign any of your rights under this agreement to anyone else. We may assign our rights to any other individual or entity at our discretion.
Choice of Law
We won’t be held liable for any delays or failure in performance of any part of the Service, from any cause beyond our control. This includes, but is not limited to, acts of God, changes to law or regulations, embargoes, war, terrorist acts, riots, fires, earthquakes, nuclear accidents, zombie apocalypse, floods, strikes, power blackouts, volcanic action, unusually severe weather conditions, and acts of hackers or third-party internet service providers.
Even if this Agreement is terminated, the following sections will continue to apply: Proprietary Rights Owned by Us, Proprietary Rights Owned by You, Compliance with Laws, Limitation of Liability, No Warranties, Indemnity, Choice of Law, Severability, and Entire Agreement.
If it turns out that a section of this Agreement isn’t enforceable, then that section will be removed or edited as little as necessary, and the rest of the Terms will still be valid.
Amendments and Waiver
Amendments or changes to these Terms won’t be effective until we post revised Terms on the Website. That aside, additional terms may apply to certain features of the Service (the "Additional Terms"). The Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when you activate the feature. Where there’s a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control. If we don’t immediately take action on a violation of these Terms, we’re not giving up any rights under the Terms, and we may still take action at some point.
No Changes in Terms at Request of Member
Because we have so many Members, we can’t change these Terms for any one Member or group.
You’ll provide all documents and take any actions necessary to meet your obligations under these Terms.
Notification of Security Breach
In the event of a security breach that may affect you, we’ll notify you of the breach and provide a description of what happened.
Any notice to you will be effective when we send it to the last email or physical address you gave us or posted on our Website. Any notice to us will be effective when delivered to us along with a copy to our legal counsel: Attn. Legal Department, Supermatter, Box 2950, Indianapolis, IN, 46206, or any addresses as we may later post on the Website.
