You must agree with the terms on this page to use the site (gchat.simon.codes) and the services it provides. Changes to the contents of this page will be published here and sent to your login email. Past versions of this page are available on request.

We'll start with definitions used in the rest of the page:

  • "free trial" means a period of 7 days after account activation where you may use the site for free
  • "the fee" means a $2 charged monthly
You agree that your account and/or autoresponses may be disabled if they:
  • consume an unreasonable proportion of the site's resources (for example, receiving thousands of messages per day)
  • are used for harassment or any illegal purpose
  • are connected to a Google account we have reason to suspect does not belong to you
  • You agree that:
  • the site and/or services may be periodically unavailable for short periods of time
  • we do not provide refunds (instead, we offer a free trial)
  • we may retry failed attempts to collect the fee
