Terms of Service

The gist:

We run a bot hosting and building platform called Meya.ai and would love for you to use it. Meya.ai offers a basic service for free, and paid plans for advanced features such as analytics, source control and additional bot usage. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your bot as possible and 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 bots.
