THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE
We provide users (“you”, “your” or “User(s)”) with services, delivered via the BlogAtom website (“site”, “website”) (currently located at https://blogatom.com), future mobile applications and/or any other platform or media through which we make such services available from time to time, that allow you to read blogs that you are already interested in, as well as find new blogs that may be of interest to you, and receive recommendations of blogs from BlogAtom (collectively, the “Services”). All Users must have registered and created an account with BlogAtom and have a “BlogAtom Profile” in order to use our Services.
