Plain English Terms of Use

This is a plain English summary of our Terms of Use Agreement, however it is by no means a substitute for reading and understanding the real thing!

By using Forekast in any way, you promise that you actually can agree to our Terms of Use Agreement and are old enough to get into a PG-13 movie without having to sneak in.

Basically, you agree:

  • To not break the rules of the actual Terms of Use.
  • To not post bad stuff (illegal, private, confidential, offensive, deceptive, derogatory, etc.).
  • Not to post images or content that belongs to someone else without their consent.
  • To be responsible for everything you do.
  • That we are not responsible for anything you do.
  • To assume responsibility if we’re sued because of something you did. 🙄
  • To not break the law somehow (unless it's a really stupid one like carrying an ice cream cone in your back pocket).
  • To not SPAM.
  • To not hack into Forekast and rearrange all the furniture.
  • To not try to get or use other Forekast user accounts.
  • That you own everything you post, but give license to Forekast to use it however it wants.
  • That we can change our Terms anytime.
  • That we can view, edit, or delete your account or content for violating our Terms.

If you see anything on our site that shouldn't be there because it violates our policies or for any other reason, please let us know by emailing us at [email protected].

Thanks everyone! 🚀
