Services "AS IS"
We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can't guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WRITE! AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some states don't allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Write!'s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Retro United Ltd. may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
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.
What do we mean by "personal information?"
For us, "personal information" means information which identifies you, like your name, email address, or activities you do with Write!. Any information that falls outside of this is "non-personal information." If we store your personal information with information that is non-personal, we will consider the combination as personal information. If we remove all personal information from a set of data then the remaining is non-personal information.
How do we learn information about you?
We learn information about you when:
You give it to us directly (e.g., when you write to our UserVoice or the contact us form);
We collect it automatically through Write! beta users (e.g., when Write! crashes, it automatically sends crash reports to our servers, including the information about your PC's state at the moment of crash);
You create an account, providing us with your email address.
Notice that we DO NOT collect any information from the app itself. We do not read your texts and do not share them with third parties. Your texts are encrypted and untouchable.
What do we do with your information once we have it?
When you give us information, we will use it in the ways for which you've given us permission. Generally, we use your information to help us provide and improve our application for you.
What Data We Collect From You
We collect IP addresses, cookie identifiers, website activity, and email addresses.
How We Use This Data

This data may be used by third parties to target advertising on other sites based on your your online activity.
In order to opt out of receiving targeted advertising, read the instructions at the DAA opt-out site www.aboutads.info.
How do we store and protect your personal information?
We are committed to protecting your personal information once we have it. We implement physical, business and technical security measures. Despite our efforts, if we learn of a security breach, we'll notify you so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We also don't want your personal information for any longer than we need it, so we only keep it long enough to do what we collected it for. Once we don't need it, we take steps to destroy it.
We may need to change this policy and our notices. The updates will be posted online. If the changes are substantive, we will announce the update through Write!'s usual channels for such announcements such as blog posts or social media accounts. Your continued use of the product after the effective date of such changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
