1. SERVICES. The Tynt Platform provides services which make link creation in copied and pasted Publisher Content effortless to readers and also, in some cases, enables easy search from copied content. When we refer to Publisher Content we mean web pages, text, videos, images, audio clips, photos, graphics, advertisements, sponsorships and/or other types of content or data served from a Publisher Site. The Tynt Platform is designed to maximize distribution of Publisher Content, drive traffic back to the Publisher Site, and provide Publishers insight into End Users who copy and paste Publisher Content.
2. PUBLISHER USAGE. As a Publisher, we will provide you with customized script that allows you to install the Services on a webpage on your Publisher Site. When you install our script on a web page, you authorize us to use, reproduce, distribute, publicly display and publicly perform the Publisher Content to the extent necessary or desired for us to provide and promote the Services.
3. PUBLISHER ACCOUNTS. If you are a Publisher and want to receive reports or other customized Services that are related to your Publisher Site(s), we may require that you create an Account.

Each registration is for your personal use, or for the use by the company or organization on whose behalf you access the Site and use the Service.
8. NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT FOR PUBLISHER SITES. We are concerned about the privacy of End Users and want to provide them choice regarding the use of their information.
