User Guidelines

Effective Date: October 12, 2017


The Places2Note team works hard to provide you with a service that makes you happier and more productive. We strive to give you a great experience by offering essential apps, making sure that your data is protected and being fully transparent about our data handling practices. In return, we ask that you respect the Places2Note Service and other users, and follow these rules about what not to do when you’re using the Service. Please remember that when you agreed to our Terms of Service (including these Guidelines), you agreed that you are responsible for any and all conduct and Content under your account.

You agree that when you use the Service: 

You won’t use Places2Note to back up your hard drive or do other things It’s not intended for.

Places2Note is designed and built around a core set of productivity-enhancing use cases. Things like collecting places, image capture, collaboration and discussion, and sharing content —the core activities that support the modern way we work together (otherwise known as “Intended Uses”). Places2Note is not designed for cloud backup, file synchronization, or file storage/archiving (“Unsupported Uses”). Examples of Unsupported Uses include systematically backing up a hard drive, storing a media library, automatically archiving emails or files, or maintaining large quantities of files for storage-only purposes. Using Places2Note for these purposes may result in you and/or other users having a significantly degraded Places2Note experience. The quality of your Places2Note experience depends on using Places2Note for its Intended Uses.

You won’t use Places2Note for anything illegal or promote illegal activities. 

So don’t do things like post instructions on how to assemble bombs; promote harm to any person, group of people (or animals, for that matter), or any governmental or legal entity; or stalk or harass anyone. This also means don’t violate laws or regulations applicable to you or the use of the Service. You, and not Places2Note, are responsible for complying with any laws or regulations applicable to the data in your account.

You won’t violate our users’ rights. 

Don’t invade another’s privacy, and don’t use someone’s personal data for commercial purposes or in some other manner that violates their rights or applicable laws. This also means you shouldn’t upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that you don’t have a right to transmit under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (e.g., inside information, confidential information learned or disclosed as part of employment relationships or under nondisclosure agreements). 

You won’t annoy or scam our users. 

Don’t upload, post or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or promotional materials. So no spam, no pyramid schemes, and definitely no “I got kidnapped and need you to wire me $1,000” schemes. Don’t try to solicit users’ passwords or personal information. This also means no engaging in commercial activities within the Service or on behalf of Places2Note without our prior approval (e.g., displaying a banner designed to profit you or any other business or organization or displaying banners for services that provide cash or cash-equivalent prizes to users in exchange for hyperlinks to their web sites). And don’t use the Service as a forwarding means to another website. 

You won’t violate IP rights. 

Don’t upload, post or transmit Content that infringes the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property or proprietary rights of another party.

You won’t mess with our service. 

Don’t ruin this for everyone. Don’t upload, promote or distribute software viruses or any other kind of computer code, files or programs that attempt to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment. Don’t interfere with our servers or networks connected to the Service. Don’t try to disguise the origin of any Content transmitted through the Service. Unless Places2Note has given you its prior approval, don’t access or attempt to access the Service by any means other than through the interface provided by Places2Note (including through the use of scripts, web crawlers or the like). And don’t use the Service in a manner that could lead to the interruption of access to the Service for others. 

You won’t attempt to copy or resell our service. 

Don’t try to reproduce Places2Note or otherwise try to exploit any part of, use of or access to the Service. In addition, don’t attempt to prevent or impair the full and complete display of advertisements or other messaging within the Service. 

You won’t pretend to be someone you’re not. 

Just be yourself. And in particular, don’t pretend to work at or be affiliated with Places2Note or Ltd. if that’s not true. 

You won’t exceed the scope of your authorized use. 

Don’t access or use features that you don’t have a right to use; don’t mess around with other users’ Content if they haven’t given you permission to do so. 

You won’t use Shared Places or the Places2Note Communities to post objectionable content. 

Don’t upload, publish or display Content that contains nudity, sexually graphic material or material that is otherwise deemed explicit by Places2Note; that Places2Note deems threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, obscene, invasive, hateful or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; or that Places2Note determines is in conflict with your obligations under applicable local law or these User Guidelines.


While we hope that all users of the Places2Note service comply with these Guidelines, we must caution you that, notwithstanding these Guidelines and the requirements in our Terms of Service, you may be exposed to offensive, indecent or objectionable Content when using the Service. We expect that you understand this and, accordingly, you use the Service at your own risk.

If you encounter any of the prohibited uses listed above, or any other objectionable content, you may contact us at

Thanks for helping to make Places2Note a great experience for everyone!
