    currently looking at the sometrics business terms and policies I read their documents and have a view at their services.

    While I do that I started to write the documents in some easier to read language without changing anything of what they describe.

    It makes it easier to read, understand and safes time to read it.

    I thought to post what I see while getting into that.
    Maybe someone can find some useful information to determine if he wants to use the service or not.

    I use this thread for that.
