nRelate Terms of Service

About These Terms

Welcome to nRelate! nRelate LLC (“nRelate,” “We,” “Us,” and “Our”) allows websites and other platforms to show their users more relevant content – made available from their own sites or from third party content owners. This content includes a wide range or articles, product reviews, videos and blog posts. The content usually appears in “thumbnail” form at the bottom or side of a page, and has a link that identifies the content as being placed with our help. Our mission is to help websites, applications and other services use their free space to show content that is both relevant and interesting, while also subsidizing their own (usually free) content.

These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are an agreement between you (the “User,” “You”) and us (nRelate), which you are accepting online by accessing our platform or this website (the “Website”).
