The purpose of our site is to provide a platform for both consumers and businesses to easily share addresses. By using our Site you can create a custom URL that is easy to remember and share. The custom URL can be shared with others and allow you to personalize certain aspects of it. We may also allow others to utilize our API (within reason) for certain commercial purposes.
Before launching into the do's and don'ts of our Site, it is important to remember one thing: we can't be responsible for the accuracy or for any errors in any locations that may be displayed or created. Maps change, and while we do our best to make changes we can’t guarantee this. So its important that if you're using Addy to get somewhere... use common sense... don’t drive over a cliff and try and hold us liable.
In addition, certain aspects of our Site may require you to register. We may allow you to register via Facebook Connect or another API. Either way, when you register or any time you provide information to us you must be truthful. Being truthful means you will also continue to update any information when needed. Lastly, you will not allow anyone else to use your account unless we have given it the A-Ok.
