Spoofing of data, opening multiple accounts, or use of this web site in any manner that could disrupt or overburden is not tolerated. Abuse may result in blockage and removal of all associated content. There is no fixed limit on number of redirects/day/link. Above 2k redirects/day is a gray zone. In general, this free site is not the place for high volume projects. Other services are available for that. Please contact us before launching if you are unsure.
URL shortening is a tool for managing web addresses. Users can make simplified addresses that essentially become links to other web pages. A link does not indicate Zionly's endorsement of or affiliation with that website. A redirect or link is simply a shortcut. Linking is not the same as hosting material. No data or files outside of the Zionly domain are ever stored or hosted on our servers. Zionly is not responsible for the content of external sites or resources that are redirected by our service. As a user of our service if you make a link, you are responsible for what you do with it! refer to Article 1 | Article 2| Article 3
Zionly only provides the technology to shorten web addresses. A short URL by itself holds no content. It simply forwards the browser on to an external web page. Short URLs are links to other websites... all created and shared by users of our service. Zionly is not the source of any content or the sharing. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy of external websites or user-generated content. We don't send out promotional emails, SMS texts, or newsletters of any kind - so there is nothing to unsubscribe. If you received spam containing the Zionly domain, regretfully it was the work of abusers! Such as bulk email campaigns or attempts to hide malware or phishing behind a Zionly link. Please send us the link so that abuse of our service can be investigated.
We reserve the right to amend or change these policies, terms and conditions at any time and without prior notice.
