YouMail has updated our terms of service, and we will be notifying all our users by e-mail over the next few days. These changes are designed to reflect how both the YouMail service and the law have changed over the past few years.  We also wanted our terms to be as clear and readable as possible, even though there are lawyers and legal language involved.

Please read it carefully, as this stuff matters, and by continuing to use YouMail after April 15th, 2013, you are explicitly agreeing to these terms.   If you don’t agree, just delete your account and don’t use YouMail any more. We’ll miss you, but we’ll understand.

We also wanted to highlight one really important change. We’ve clarified exactly what “inactive” means, since we automatically delete inactive accounts.  Deleting an account means the voicemails, call history, greetings, contacts, and more, all disappear, forever.

Fortunately, to be “active” and keep your YouMail account, you need only do one of the following at least once every 90 days.

Any account that is “inactive” based on this definition as of April 15th will be deleted and its contents removed.

The good news is that you can still get the YouMail service even if you are not wearing shoes or a shirt.
