Terms of Service

Thanks for using Elin! These terms of service ("Terms") cover your use and access to our services, client software and websites ("Services"). Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your information. By using our Services, you're agreeing to be bound by these Terms, and to review our Privacy Policy. If you're using our Services for an organization, you're agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.

Your Permissions

When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your content and images and so on ("Your Stuff"). Your Stuff is yours. These Terms don't give us any rights to Your Stuff except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.

We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Stuff, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Some of our features may require our systems to access, store and scan Your Stuff. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.

Your Responsibilities

Please be aware that content in the Services may be protected by others' intellectual property rights. Please don't copy, upload, download or share content unless you have the right to do so. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers.

We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms. With that said, we have no obligation to do so. We aren't responsible for the content people post and share via the Services.

Please safeguard your password to the Services, make sure that others don't have access to it, and keep your account information current.

Finally, our Services are not intended for and may not be used by people under the age of 13. By using our Services, you are representing to us that you're over 13.

Paid Accounts

You can pay to access paid features (turning your account into a "Paid Account"). We'll automatically bill you from the date you convert to a Paid Account and on each periodic renewal until cancellation. You're responsible for all applicable taxes, and we'll charge tax when required to do so.

You may cancel your Paid Account at any time but you won't be issued a refund.

Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it's cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you don't pay for your Paid Account on time, we reserve the right to suspend it.

We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of these changes via a message to the email address associated with your account.

Termination of Accounts

You're free to stop using our Services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you're not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others' use of the Services.

Modification of the Terms

We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account, posting on our blog or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

Privacy Policy

Elin values the privacy of our users and makes all reasonable efforts to protect it. This Privacy Policy covers the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that may be collected when you use Elin, such as when you use our services or communicate with the Elin Support team. Please read the following to learn more about what information we collect, what we do with that information, and how we may use your personal information.

Information Collection and Use

We collect certain personal information because we want to provide the best possible service. It enables us to deliver product announcements, service updates and special offers as well as provide convenient and personalized user access and improve the features and usability of our products. Unregistered users may still be able to use certain Elin services, in which case no personal information is collected.

We collect information for internal business purposes in a number of situations, including but not limited to: personal information such as name and e-mail address; geographic information such as where you use your devices to improve our understanding of our customer needs; tracking information about your visit, including IP address, cookies and the pages you request to analyze trends and administer the site; aggregate information from multiple users without personally identifying individuals, which we may share with our partners to improve understanding of customer needs and provide relevant services.

Public Information

Certain parts of the Elin website and services are open to any online viewer, such as documents designated as "public." Any information that you post in these locations can be read, collected and used by anyone, and could enable others to send you unsolicited messages. Our service enables you to determine whether or not to post personal or otherwise sensitive information to publically accessible areas of our site, and so you should carefully consider how you use the services. Elin is not responsible for any publication or use of any personal information you choose to post in these locations.

Information Disclosure to Third Parties

We do not share, sell, rent or otherwise distribute information you enter in Elin to others, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We may share your information with others outside of Elin under the following circumstances:

  • We have your explicit consent to share the information;
  • We need to share your information to fulfill your product or service request, such as backing up your data in a third party file storage service like Dropbox;
  • We have a good faith belief that sharing or otherwise permitting access, disclosure, use or preservation of such information is reasonably necessary in order to comply with our legal obligations;
  • We believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or potential threats against persons or property.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are small data files that a website you visit may save on your device that usually includes an anonymous unique identifier. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your personal information. Our service uses cookies for user authentication, keeping track of your preferences, promotional campaigns that require user identification, keeping track of our audience size and traffic patterns, and in certain other cases.

Depending on which browser you use, you can normally configure your browser to accept cookies, reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being used. However, if you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to use our service that require you to sign in or take full advantage of our features.

We may allow third party business partners that display advertisements on some of our web pages to maintain their own cookies on your computer. These business partners do not have access to our cookies and their use is subject to their own privacy policies.


Our website and service may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policy or other practices employed by websites linked to, or from, our website nor the information or content contained therein. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us.

Data Ownership

You own the data you put into Elin. By putting your information into Elin, you do not grant us any special rights with regard to that information.

Data Security

We're committed to protect your information. We do the following to make sure your information is secure:

  • Your password is protected by encryption and only you have access to it;
  • Your personal information and data stored in our systems is protected by various physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. Our employees do not monitor or view your personal information or content stored in our service, but it may be viewed if we learn that our Terms of Service may have been violated and confirmation is required, or we otherwise determine that we have an obligation to review it;
  • Our service uses standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions. SSL encryption is a technology used by thousands of leading online services such as banks, email providers and remote backup services. However, this is not a guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, altered or deleted due to firewall or other security software failures.

If we learn of a security system breach we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the e-mail address that you supplied during registration or posting a notice on our website.

International Users

Personal information collected by us may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Elin maintains facilities, and by using this website, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

If Elin should ever sell its assets, merge with another entity or file for bankruptcy, information collected from this web site and in the operation of the services may be transferred as assets of Elin.
