If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Better Stack, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms. The Website is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old.
Your Better Stack Account
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and credentials, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account.

The Website is provided for a fee as set forth on the Website. Unless agreed otherwise, all fees shall be paid within 15 days from receipt of an invoice. Amounts not paid when due shall be subject to a late payment charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is lower. All payments required by this Agreement are exclusive of any taxes, duties, tariffs, levies and withholdings (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes), and you agree to be responsible for the payment of all such charges. Should any payment for the Website be subject to withholding tax by any government, you will reimburse us for such withholding tax.
Responsibility of Contributors
If you post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content and you agree to hold Better Stack harmless against all claims, civil or criminal, resulting from the Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
- the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
- if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
- you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
- the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
- the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
- the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Better Stack has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Better Stack’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any Content that, in Better Stack’s reasonable opinion, violates any Better Stack policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in Better Stack’s sole discretion.
