Terms of Service
An Introduction to GrannyMaster’s Terms of Service
Welcome to GrannyMaster! Here is a quick summary of the highlights of our Terms of Service:
Our vision is to provide a platform that provides best-in-class learning experience with access to high-quality educational content on any subject of your choice. The GrannyMaster platform offers a place to seek information about various subjects and also help others who are seeking information, by creating educational content in your area of expertise. This empowers people to help each other and to better understand the core concepts of various subjects.
You own the content that you post; you also grant us and other users of the GrannyMaster platform certain rights and license to use it. The details of these licenses are described in section 3(3) below.
You are responsible for the content that you post. This includes ensuring that you have the rights needed for you to post the content and that your content does not violate the legal rights of another party or any applicable laws.
You can repost any content that is made available free of cost on GrannyMaster elsewhere, provided that you attribute the content back to the GrannyMaster platform, and do not use automated tools. However, all paid content is proprietary and is protected by copyright laws.
We do not endorse or verify content posted by users. While we do have sense check mechanisms to weed out unreliable and inaccurate information to verify the publishing quality of the educational content, our content and materials are provided to you “as is” by the content creators. You are solely responsible for your own use of the GrannyMaster platform. While we strive to ensure that the content created or provided by registered users on the platform is accurate and error free, we recommend independent judgment from users on content that could be subjective and liable to change with time.
We offer tools for you to give feedback and report complaints. If you think that any information in the content provided on the platform is incorrect, or that someone has violated your intellectual property rights, other laws, or GrannyMaster’s policies, you can initiate a report by sending an email to support@GrannyMaster.in.
We are pleased that you want to join the GrannyMaster platform and encourage you to read the full Terms of Service.
