Terms of Service

Terms of service


By accessing or using the Service, this means you agree to be bound by all the terms below. Nomagic reserves the right to update and modify these terms from time to time.

In a nutshell (TL;DR version)

Our engagements


Respecting your privacy is the foundation of Nomagic, which we believe implies the exclusive use of Free/Libre Software.

Nomagic pledges to honour the following commitments to its users:

  • Never engage in data-monetization activity.
  • Exclusive use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in the choice of services, and wherever it is possible.
  • If data is collected, it will be exclusively for internal statistical analysis and will be subject to anonymisation, without involving any third-party.
  • We do not scan your data, and rely on you to have a reasoned and respectful usage of our services.

While we will take care of updating our services and maintaining our infrastructure, we cannot ensure that a service will always be available. If the project related to a service were to be abandoned, we would have to eventually stop making the service available for security purpose. If that was to happen, we would be looking for another FOSS alternative to replace the retired service.

Your engagements


As a user, you pledge to:

  • Not use Nomagic services and/ or infrastructure to conduct any fraudulent activity, externally or internally.
  • Respect the law (good or bad)
  • Have a fair and respectful use of our Service.

{ .note .warning } Users who would contravene to those rules will be susceptible to get their account locked in or deleted (including its content) without any warning. Nomagic remains the sole judge of this notion of “abuse” in order to provide the best possible service to all its users.

Service level

Our services target private individuals and small and medium associations.

  • We will always try our best to keep everything working and provide fixes and support to keep our services running. We have monitoring and weekly backups in place to achieve just that.
  • However, Nomagic cannot be held on to any obligation of result.
    • This includes restoring data, no matter the origin of the data loss. Furthermore, Nomagic’s backups do not allow data restoration of a specific user.
    • It is essential that you backup / synchronise any important data outside of Nomagic.



Would you wish to stop using our services, you are free to leave at anytime. This will need to be confirmed by mail or ideally via PGP-signed email (for proof of identity).

The metadata will be removed progressively during backup rotations.

Upon departure, the user is responsible for backing up his/her own data before they are removed from the live system. Ideally this should be done before handing over the withdrawal request. If help is required to retrieve specific data, contact us through support [at] nomagic [dot] uk using your main Nomagic email address (required), and we will assist however we can.


Nomagic reserves the right, at any time, to modify or interrupt, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice.

Nomagic will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or interruption of service.
