Google makes no representations about the performance, quality, content, or continued availability of any Script or Add-on.

While we do record the user email address of those who use Stim8, we do not record any other personally identifiable data. Email addresses are not shared with any other third party.

Stim8 does request for access to both GMail and Google Drive. These permissions are only used to manage the estimate spreadsheet document itself and provide functionality related to building and optionally sharing the estimate. We do not access any emails or other documents outside of the estimate process. At this time, Google does not offer a more granular security/access model to only utilized specific functions within this areas.

Use, Obligations and Support

At this point in time we are committed to offering this Stim8 tool ("the Service"), however we assume no legal responsibility for its misuse by end users, nor do we make any guarantees of its quality or reliability. Because Stim8 utilizes Google Sheets and the estimation data exists only within the spreadsheet and the end-user’s Google account, the potential failure of this tool generally poses no privacy risk, but we cannot offer a 100% guarantee of this.

While we make every effort to ensure its functionality, Stim8 is ultimately software where things may break and need to be fixed from time to time. We welcome all users of our tools as partners in their development and refinement, but we ask that you engage with us with the following norms when seeking our support:

Do not expect to get free consulting services on how to use Stim8 or general product development or software implementation practices. Please do not ask for us to consult beyond the time required to troubleshoot something that is not functioning as expected unless you are proposing to pay us for this time.

Stim8 is a tool that provides the means to estimate both effort (hours) and cost (currency). The Service is being made available as a tool to help enhance these processes. However, we are not responsible for any issues arising from the use of any data provided by the Service. You as the end user are ultimately responsible for the data used to plan and operate your business.

We do offer pricing plans to provide additional features and enhanced support. The goal of those pricing plans is to make Stim8 a sustainable service. Please remember that the Service is linked to and in some cases limited by the infrastructure provided by Google. Changes by Google on this infrastructure might change the product and the features the Service can provide.

In addition to all other terms and conditions contained herein, you shall not and shall not permit others to:

  • copy, modify, adapt, translate or otherwise create derivative works of the Service;
  • reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Service;
  • rent, lease, sell, assign or otherwise transfer rights in or to the Service;
  • remove any proprietary notices or labels from the Service;
  • use, post, transmit or introduce any device, software or routine which interferes or attempts to interfere with the operation of the Service;
  • use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose or engage in illegal or deceptive trade practices;
  • or otherwise use of the Service in violation of any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws);
  • use the Service for High Risk Activities;
  • process or store any content on or through the Service that is subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations maintained by the Department of State.

This list of prohibitions provides examples and is not complete or exclusive.
