The gist:

We (the folks at A New Mind) run a company (A New Mind for I.T Est) and a social business (A New Mind) and would love for you to use it. Our service is free, and we will offer paid plans for advanced features. Our service is designed to give you tools and features that will improve education and research as possible as possible while encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your content.

If you find any of our websites that you believe violates these Terms of Service, please visit our contact us page and feel free to send us the claim.
