TIMELY TERMS OF SERVICE
MODIFICATION DATE: September 06, 2016.
Welcome to Timely!
Timely is the creator of a unique open-source application and a web-based application for Event Publishing and Promotion based on one of the world’s oldest social platforms – the calendar. Over 100,000 of our customers are creating, publishing, ticketing, and promoting millions of events from around the world at any given time with our easy-to-use and full-featured software.
Timely’s open-source application – the All-in-One Event Calendar™ – is a WordPress Plugin designed to install on your own hosted website. It provides you with an easy-to-use and full-featured calendar to publish and present events on your website, and promote or share these events with other calendars. The free (“Core”) version of our All-in-One Event Calendar™ provides a beautiful and feature-rich website calendar with that can be upgraded with Add-ons for even more functionality.
Timely-hosted calendars with additional features and more powerful event discovery (curation) and sharing capability are also available and can be embedded on any website (including WordPress websites).
Timely’s web-based application – the Timely CalendarTM – is stand-alone software hosted on our servers that can be embedded on any website (including WordPress sites). The Timely Calendar has many advantages including but not limited to: the ability to use it as a standalone calendar (without a website or app), more powerful sharing capabilities, full SEO recognition, more powerful sharing features, and great performance metrics even when installed on low-cost hosted websites.
