Delaying to Finalize the Tomoni EULA

tomoniAs you have no doubt realized, we have been slightly delayed in the release of Tomoni hybrid v1.0 to the Apple App Store and Google Play.  The easi6 team has been revisiting the Tomoni EULA and making sure that we have fully implemented necessary reporting functions into Tomoni.

Unfortunately, not all users who will download Tomoni will have good and honest intentions in mind.  Consequently, we have been reviewing our policy on malicious content, updating the Tomoni End User License Agreement (EULA), and adding additional reporting functions to Tomoni.

A follow-up blog post will demonstrate the various ways in which you may report malicious content to an easi6 administrator, both from within the app and via email or phone.  Of course, if you come across the upload and/or distribution of any content which you suspect constitutes a serious, felony crime, we urge to also immediately report the content to a lawful authority, like the NCMEC, the FBI, or your local police.

For your convenience, please find the EULA posted below.  It’s rather lengthy (8 pages~); but we welcome you to read it through carefully and provide us with any feedback or concerns that you may have.  Thanks!
