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.

Our shortened URLs

Our shortened URLs could redirect anywhere, you follow them at your own risk and V.af 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

The short version: V.af 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.

The long version: we provide V.af as a free service - as such it carries no warranty of any kind. V.af and its staff and owners are not liable for any loss or problem you might suffer due to using the service. This includes losses in the event that the service stops operating, is unavailable or slow, suffers data loss, or any other issue which might be considered detrimental to you.

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 V.af (and our other URL shorteners) temporarily or permanently. In cases of severe abuse or illegal usage we may report this to the relevant law enforcement agencies.
