We developed trumpet to make it easy to collaborate with customers and understand how your customers are engaging with your content.
Our belief has always been that if we can do this at scale, we can play an influential part in improving the experience for millions of people online. This belief has driven us to reduce the friction of signing up for our service and also fuels our desire to make it easy to get value from our product.
So far our approach has worked however, not everything is perfect. Given the rate of change online, its tremendous growth, and the ease of publishing, it’s not practical for trumpet to know all of its users nor the exact nature of their business. While we believe the majority of people on this planet are good-natured, our product might be used in ways we never intended. It’s also conceivable that some accounts will not be using trumpet as we had intended or in line with our Terms of Service.
The intent of this Policy is to make it clear to anyone who uses trumpet (free or paid) what behavior or content is not acceptable for sites using our service. We will take action against sites that are discovered to be in violation of this Policy.
If the content on your website contains information that is conducting or promoting any of the below, or if you intend to leverage trumpet to do any of the below, please don’t sign up for trumpet. If you already have an account—whether free or paid—you must stop using trumpet on the offending site or cancel your account.
The following constitutes behavior and content that are NOT acceptable uses of trumpet:
Sites performing, promoting, suggesting, or soliciting illegal activities.
Harassment, bullying, defamation, stalking, and threats.
Hateful content. A website using trumpet must not contain content that meets the following criteria nor can a trumpet account be used to do any of the following:
Promote or condone hate, violence, or discrimination against people based on race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition, veteran status, or other forms of discriminatory intolerance.
Promote or support organisations, platforms or people that: (i) promote or condone such hate; or (ii) threaten or condone violence to further a cause.
Child exploitation, sexualization, or abuse. We don’t tolerate any activities that create, disseminate, or otherwise cause child abuse.
Sites selling counterfeit goods; or sites allowing, performing or facilitating any infringement of third party intellectual property rights.
Malware or spyware. This includes using trumpet to inject, infect, spread, etc. malware or spyware.
Phishing or otherwise attempting fraud. It is not okay to lie about who you are or who you affiliate with to steal from, extort, or otherwise harm others.
Spamming. No one wants unsolicited emails, text, or other communication.
Violence, or threats thereof. This includes activities on your site that qualify as a violent crime where you live, or in the UK where trumpet is based, or if you are leveraging trumpet to plan, conduct, assist, commit, or threaten this kind of activity.
Any actions that do not support the privacy rights of an individual. This includes capturing, selling, or sharing personal data without their consent.
It’s foreseeable that a customer's use of trumpet may extend to new areas not currently documented in this Policy. When and if this occurs we will take the same action of investigation and enforcement to determine if a site/account is acting against the spirit of this Policy. We reserve the right to do this as needed. When a situation like this occurs we will use our Core Values to guide our final decision and update this Policy if appropriate.
Do you know of a site that is violating this Policy? Or do you suspect a site might be violating the Policy? If so, please contact us so we can investigate. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share as much as you are comfortable with about the site, the content or behavior you are reporting, and how you found it. In addition to the URL, sending us screenshots is helpful since content can quickly be removed or changed.
Someone on our team will respond within two business days to let you know we’ve begun investigating. We will also contact you with the outcome of our investigation (unless you ask us not to, or we are not allowed to under law).
Bad refund policies are infuriating. You feel like the company is just trying to rip you off. We never want our customers to feel that way, so our refund policy is simple: If you’re ever unhappy with trumpet for any reason, just contact us and we'll take care of you.
If you were just charged for your next month of service but you meant to cancel, we’re happy to refund that extra charge.
If you forgot to cancel your account a couple months ago and you haven’t used it since then, we’ll give you a full refund for a few back months. No problem.
If you tried trumpet for a couple months and you just weren’t happy with it, you can have your money back.
If you forgot to cancel your account a year ago, and there’s been activity on your account since then, we’ll review your account usage and figure out a partial refund based on how many months you used it.
If we had extended downtime (multiple hours in a day, or multiple days in a month) or you emailed customer service and it took multiple days to get back to you, we’d issue a partial credit to your account.
At the end of the day, nearly everything on the edges comes down to a case-by-case basis. Contact us, tell us what's up, and we'll work with you to make sure you’re happy.
*This policy applies to any product created and owned by Trumpet Software Limited.
We want satisfied customers, not hostages. That’s why we make it easy for you to cancel your account.
Account owners can cancel their paid trumpet plan within their account settings.
Our legal responsibility is to account owners, which means we cannot cancel an account at the request of anyone else. If for whatever reason you no longer know who the account owner is, contact us. We will gladly reach out to any current account owners at the email addresses we have on file.
If you have a paid trumpet account, you can cancel your subscription and keep using your account until your paid period expires. Then the account will be automatically cancelled and will be downgraded to trumpet's Free Plan and you will lose access to all paid features. You can then chose to delete your account permanently.
We’ll permanently delete your account data 30 days after cancellation from our servers and logs, and within 60 days from our backups. Retrieving data for a single account from a backup isn’t possible, so if you change your mind you’ll need to do it within the first 30 days after cancellation. Data can’t be recovered once it has been permanently deleted.
We won’t bill you again once you cancel. We don’t automatically prorate any unused time you may have left but if you haven’t used your account in months or just started a new billing cycle, contact us for a fair refund. We’ll treat you right.
We may cancel accounts if they have been inactive for an extended period:
For frozen accounts: 180 days after being frozen due to billing failures
For free accounts: after 365 days of inactivity
We also retain the right to suspend or terminate accounts for any reason at any time, as outlined in our Terms of Service. In practice, this generally means we will cancel your account without notice if we have evidence that you are using our products to engage in abusive behaviour.
