Terms of Service

These Terms of Use are a legal document designed to protect your ("you", "your" or "user(s)") rights and the rights of Markus Bodner ("the Developer"), with regards to the Bold Shows service, software, documentation, and incidental intellectual property ("Bold Shows"). Using Bold Shows constitutes acceptance of these terms — if you do not consent to the terms, please contact the Developer to have your account canceled and further charges against your credit card stopped.

Human readable summary: You should read this whole document, because it is a contract and you are bound by the whole contract. However, we like having plain language which summarizes some of the important terms:

  • You pay us yearly for Bold Shows. We give you the first 7 days for free.
  • We get to terminate this agreement at any time, for any reason. (Basically, if some bad apple is in danger of spoiling everyone’s use of the service, we need the legal cover to shoot first and ask questions to their lawyers later.)
  • We’ll happily refund any payment you make within 14 days of you making it, and you can cancel your use of the service at any time. These are your only guarantees that the service will be to your liking. If something goes wrong, we’ll refund your money but we won’t pay you anything you haven’t paid us.
