Detailed Terms of Use


These Terms of Use tell you about our public services, our relationship to you as a user, and the rights and responsibilities that guide us both. We want you to know that we host an incredible quantity of educational and informational content, some of which is contributed and made possible by users like yourself. Generally we do not monitor, or delete content. This means that editorial control of the blog or content you post is in the hands of you. We merely host those contents.

The community contributes to and helps govern our sites.

Legal responsibility

You are welcome to join as a contributor, editor, or author, but you should follow any policies that govern the site as a whole and the respective sections or pages. Please be aware that you are legally responsible for all of your contributions, edits, and re-use of the website content under any applicable laws (which may include the laws where you live or where you view or edit content).

Usually we write an article after learning from various sources over a period of time and hence some of the sentences, examples etc. might be similar or same to other materials available.
