Terms & Conditions
Widgety is designed to save you time, but if we’re honest, nobody has the time to thoroughly read the Terms & Conditions – even though we know we should. So, here’s our synopsis version – so you know what you’re signing up to.
- Your content is just that, it’s your content. However, you’re giving us permission to share anything you add to Widgety.
- If there’s anything you don’t want shared, let us know, and we’ll take it down immediately.
- As it is your content, if you want to remove anything, you can at any time and you don’t have to give us any notice.
- We’ll do our very best to let you know where exactly your content goes: who’s embedded it, how many views you’ve got, how many people are following your Place.
- If you’re borrowing content, you’re safe in the knowledge that you’ll only ever receive the content you want. We won’t feed you any of this ‘Featured’ content, and there aren’t any ‘Suggested’ Places to worry about. Search for, find, and embed the content you choose.
- When you sign up to Widgety, you’re free to come and go as you choose. We don’t have a minimum sign up period or anything like that. You’re not tied to us in any way.
- We find that the internet is becoming more and more intrusive by the day, and we’re proud to be a little different. We don’t have any adverts, we don’t datamine, and we won’t sell your information – ever. That’s a promise.
THE SMALL PRINT
YOUR CONTENT & YOUR PERMISSIONS

SHARING YOUR CONTENT
Our Services let you share Your Content with others, so please think carefully about what you share.
