Terms & Conditions

We've tried to make our terms as clear and easy to read as possible, so don't expect pages of legalese!

Forbidden activities

wpu.ir may NOT be used creating shortened URLs that:
  • Are used in commercial email
  • Are used for unsolicited advertising (spam) including email, forum posts, SMS messages and spam posts/messaging on social networks such as Facebook or Twitter
  • Link to malicious content (phishing, viruses, trojans, adware, any other malware)
  • Link to any form of pornography
  • Link to other URL shortening or redirection sites or scripts (these "chains" of links are often used to hide malicious usage)
  • Link to material that infringes copyright
  • Link to material we consider unethical including but not limited to "get rich quick" schemes, pyramid schemes, paid "self help" schemes, dubious competitions, sites requiring users to fill out paid surveys and sites with a model that encourges users to spam others (e.g. "Sign up 10 members to get X free")

URL rejection and removal

We can reject URLs when they are submitted or later remove, disable or redirect shortened URLs for any reason. Our intention is only to do this where they violate our terms or the spirit of fair usage, or we have reason to suspect they do (e.g. if they appear on a blacklist we consult). We're only human and mistakes are occasionally made - we can reinstate disabled shortened URLs if we think it's appropriate to do so.

Excessive usage

We need to keep wpu.ir fast and responsive for everyone so we limit the amount it can be used to levels we consider reasonable. See our usage limits page for the current limits. Users may not open more than 5 concurrent connections to wpu.ir at any time. For automated scripts or programs using our API a specific code is returned for excessive use (see our developer documentation) and your application should wait before retrying your request. If it doesn't do this and continues to hammer you may get blocked.

Our shortened URLs

Users who create wpu.ir shortened URLs cannot later delete them or modify their destinations (this helps to prevent abuse). Our shortened URLs could redirect anywhere, you follow them at your own risk and wpu.ir is not responsible or liable for content you visit.

Data usage

We do not share any information with third parties unless explicitly stated in our privacy policy. We do not collect or store any information other that required to provide you with the service and to provide us with site usage statistics.

Warranty and liability

wpu.ir is free. We'll do our best to maintain it but we might have problems or things might break. If they do, we don't owe you anything.

Violation of our terms

If you violate our terms, depending on the severity of the abuse, we may disable shortened URLs you have created or block you from using wpu.ir (and our other services) temporarily or permanently. In cases of severe abuse or illegal usage we may report this to the relevant law enforcement agencies.
