Free Service

Dream to Learn is free. Our planned business model is to put tasteful and relatively inconspicuous ads on Dream to Learn pages (initially using Google AdSense to offset server and operating costs).

  1. If desired, you will be able to buy an optional monthly subscription that will turn off the ads.
  2. Users who are contributing a lot to Dream to Learn will also get ads turned off.
  3. Aside from the presence/absence of ads, our intention is for there to be no difference in the service for those who are paying and those who are not paying. That is, we are trying to avoid a so-called "freemium" business model, with the following possible exception:
    • because there are real costs associated with storage and bandwidth, we may limit the amount of storage and bandwidth available on non-paying accounts.

Safety

We do our best to keep Dream to Learn safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to keep Dream to Learn safe, which includes the following commitments by you:

  1. You will not post unauthorized commercial communications, such as spam, on Dream to Learn.
  2. You will not collect users' content or information, or otherwise access Dream to Learn, using automated means, such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers.
  3. You will not engage in unlawful multi-level marketing, such as a pyramid schemes, upload viruses, attempt to gain access to unauthorized areas or accounts.
  4. You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user or community. You will not post content that is: hate speech, violent, threatening, or pornographic; If in doubt, a good test is – would the conversation or content be welcome in a public library or university cafeteria?
