This is all the boring legal stuff, you can go back to the app if you like.

Terms of Service

By using the ch.eer.io service, you agree to be bound by these terms. If you don't want be bound by these terms, you can delete your account and all your data will be removed. I won't think less of you.

I reserve the right to make any changes to these terms at any time, but I promise not to screw you over, so there's that.

ch.eer.io notifies you of messages that have been posted to App.net. I don't filter, read, or otherwise censor those messages. You might get something embarrassing popping up on your phone while your mom is holding it. There's nothing I can do about that other than to recommend you don't let your mom use your phone.

ch.eer.io simply routes messages from App.net to your phone. As such you agree not to hold me responsible if someone uses App.net to distribute your copyrighted young adult vampire novella that you spend all last Wednesday working on, and those messages happen to be delivered via ch.eer.io. Also, YA vampire novellas are so last year. Werewolves are where it's at.

It's possible that on some future April Fool's Day, I'll send unexpected instructions to your phone via a push message. By continuing to use this site you agree to do whatever it says. Don't ask me what it'll be, I don't know yet.

When you create an account on ch.eer.io I store most of your profile information (all the public stuff the App.net API tells me about you) in a file on my server, along with your ch.eer.io preferences. I promise to read all of this data so I'll know as much as possible about you, just in case we meet someday, but I probably won't get to it for awhile. Sorry.

I'd appreciate it if you don't do anything bad to the ch.eer.io servers, they're self conscious and don't take criticism well. I also don't guarantee any level of service, because quite honestly the servers run mostly on soda crackers and stale cheese, and could stop delivering messages at any time. Obviously I can't be held responsible for that kind of thing. That said I try and keep both items in reasonable supply and will make reasonable attempts to keep them alive.

I reserve the right to refuse access to anyone who does bad things or continually proves themselves to be exceedingly foolish. Also scientologists, because they generally fit both criteria. Tom, you're right out. Sorry.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold me harmless for all the stupid things I say, as well as anything bad that might happen to you while using ch.eer.io. For example, say you're crossing the street and your phone buzzes with a ch.eer.io notification, and when you stop in the middle of the road to read it you get yelled at by a taxi. Yup, I don't cover that. You'll have to deal with the verbal abuse yourself. Indemnification, baby.

These terms are governed by the laws of decency and humanity. The good kind. Not the Hitler type.

This text combined with human decency constitute the entirety of out agreement. So basically what I told you when we were alone in the elevator last week isn't binding. Really sorry, but it was an awkward situation and lying was the easiest way out.

Don't be a dick™.

Privacy Policy

When you sign up on ch.eer.io, I request your data from App.net. If they send me info back I store it on my server, along with your preferences, which may include your email address if you specify it when using services like Boxcar. I use this information to pull data from the App.net API and to send it to a push provider (like Pushover). I promise not to share it with anyone else (it'll be our secret). When you delete your account I delete that data on you and stop sending you push messages.

Obviously I need to share the contents of the push messages with the push apps (eg: Boxcar, Pushover, etc) who in turn likely share it with the push service provider (eg: Apple, Google, etc). So if you're planning on some kind of world takeover maybe don't use ch.eer.io. It's possible that Jony Ive reads those messages and will find out about your romantic interludes, but I doubt it (he's been pretty busy lately). I don't read any of the messages flying through the server (unless I'm debugging, in which case I promise to misread them very quickly, so you're protected) and I don't store them longer than the time it takes to pass them on to the next hop in the chain.

Apache logs things, like your IP address, browser string, etc. But, like, every website on the planet does this. If it worries you, you should really be using TOR or something. Seriously.

I use cookies (both kinds of cookies) to keep track of who you are while you're adjusting settings on the ch.eer.io site. But they're short lived (both kinds of cookies) and disappear shortly after you leave the site. This is why you need to log in every time you visit.

I think that's about it. If I missed anything or you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for reading, I know these legal things are tedious.

Back to the app...
