This page describes FreeLists, a Service of Avenir Technologies, LLC., including "FreeLists", "us," "we," and "our." We describe what the Service is, how it's used, how the service is terminated, and what is expected of you as a user of the Service. By using the Service you agree to these Terms.
FreeLists provides a mailing list (sometimes called "group") functionality where by one or more subscribers "posts" (sends an email) to an address at the Service that results in emails further being sent to other subscribers who have opted to receive the communications. It might be thought of as a giant, automated Cc: list. Lists take the form of both newsletters (one-way) and discussion fora (many-to-many).
Our customers self-manage thousands of such lists. Their subscribers (list members) must opt-in and consent to receive the content posted.
Posted content is public. We archive everything as a means of growing public knowledge.
The Service is not a marketing service, platform, or conduit. We don't participate in advertising, lead generation, analytics, or any form of tracking. We aren't an e-commerce platform. We don't provide "leads" or "contacts." We don't send SPAM.
The Service is not commercial. Though we do our best to provide a reliable offering, we provide no warranty for fitness of the service, express or implied -- see below. The Service is provided free of charge.
As a list participant (subscriber), which includes list administrators, you are required to:
ADDITIONALLY, as a list owner, administrator, or moderator, you are required to:
The Service is provided as is without any guarantees or warranty.

IN NO EVENT WILL FreeLists BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS, PROCEEDINGS, LIABILITIES, OBLIGATIONS, DAMAGES, LOSSES OR COSTS IN AN AMOUNT EXCEEDING THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO FreeLists UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHICH IS ZERO.
Use of the Service is at the user's risk.
The list administrator is welcome at any time to discontinue use of the Service by contacting us.
Any subscriber is free to terminate Service at any time by unsubscribing. Unsubscribing prevents future uses of the Service and contact from it but does not remove any of the data you may have sent to it for public storage. You may request this be deleted -- you have a right to be forgotten -- please contact us if this is the case.
We reserve the right to terminate Service to any subscriber or list administrator at any time and without notice for any violation of the terms of the Service, any violation of the spirit of the terms, or in any sitation that we deem to be damaging to the Service or its other users by which termination would be the most appropriate course of action.
All such decisions are at our discretion and are final.
In the regular course of an evolving business this policy may change at any time. Please review this policy periodically.
