Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies
Memory is a self-service platform with user generated content. Courses are created by users, and Memory makes no effort to ensure they are of high quality or accurate. They may be described inaccurately, or unavailable, and we may experience delays in updating any requests to modify information. You expressly agree that any such offer of a product or service does not constitute a legal offer capable of attracting legal consequences.
We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including text content, product images, names of course or their descriptions. We reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions in courses at any time without prior notice. Section “Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies” is without prejudice to existing statutory rights.
MEMORY.com is a product under rapid development. No guarantees are offered towards stability or availability. Whilst we typically have less than 0.01% down time, we cannot guarantee against outages at any give time.
In the unlikely event that MEMORY.com close unexpectedly without notice, we can no longer offer website availability. In this circumstance, we will make every effort to ensure you can export all of your content.
Results are not guaranteed
At various stages, Memory makes claims about the quality of its service. These are judged by studies on the methodology used by Memory and user feedback. Whilst the results stated are often typical of spaced repetition learning methods, results are not guaranteed and your own results may vary. Memory offers no warranty against you using the service and not achieving results as expected. All claims about results or learning speed are indicative only.
Memory offers a test/exam mode for many courses automatically. Exams on Memory are dynamically generated and may not be of comparable difficulty to the exam you are participating in. For this reason, Memory offers no indication that by being successful in this mode you will also be successful when using your chosen subject.

If your course is set to public mode, content should not be plagiarised from copyrighted material, and we reserve the right to remove any offending content. Note that public mode is the default setting and this must be updated by editing your course settings if you wish to make it private.
Memory gets thousands of new questions entered into our public system per day from users - and from time to time receives offensive content. We use automated tools to try go detect offensive content, and when it is detected it is removed. Courses with inappropriate content will be flagged and set as private to their creator, or if found to be extremely inappropriate they will be removed. Automated tools are not infallible and you may notice content that you find offensive on the site. In this case, please report it using either the feedback, contact us buttons, or email email@example.com. Please note there may be a delay of up to 2 weeks whilst this is reviewed.

User generated content may not always be traceable if the user created it whilst is in guest mode.
Memory.com offers the functionality for users to mark their course as unlisted. We do our best to ensure that web robots such as Google do not index or store a link to the course in their search engines, but we offer no warranty against this.
Memory.com offers the functionality for users to password protect their courses.
