Welcome to Nostromo, a product of Digital Natives. We are providing you, your team and your clients an all in one project management tool that helps building your digital products. You’ve decided to work with us and so we created this sweet Terms of Service that will explain what we’re doing so we can serve you to the best of our abilities. We want to be as chilled as possible about this and not impose anything crazy on you. So this is what we basically suggest: have a read and if you want to give it a go just sign up. If you have any question or suggestions for improvements on what to do differently, just ping us an email and let’s work together on it.
Changes to the Terms of Service
Here at Nostromo we are dedicated to serve your and the community’s need which might be changing from time to time. We are evolving both as human beings and as a team hence our product evolves too. With that, every once in awhile we need to change the legal things as well.
We reserve the right to make changes to the Contracts. Please revisit this page from time to time to check out any updates. When we make any material changes to the Contracts, we will make sure to notify you via email. By continuing to use Nostromo’s Service after notifying you about the changes, you are expressing and acknowledging your acceptance of the changes. In case you don’t agree with the changes, please kindly unsubscribe from our services.
Nostromo is an all in one project management tool for teams working on digital products. Here are some of the definitions we collected for you to understand this document better.
Content. While you’re using Nostromo you are creating or uploading content to Nostromo. Contents are any materials that are part of your projects including but not limited to task descriptions, pictures, photos, uploaded files, comments, links and timesheet related information.
User roles. In order to use Nostromo you need to become a user by subscribing to Nostromo. User means anyone who subscribed to Nostromo and has unique user identification for the service. User roles are:
- User is usually a member of your team with access to organisation’s timesheet and projects he/she is added to.
- User in Client role is usually someone from outside your team accessing only projects he/she is added to.

Service is the functionality of Nostromo that you can use when you sign in to our application. It allows you to create teams, projects and tasks and manage these items by uploading Content and using the various built-in functionalities.
Team. Users, clients and admins form a team which is managed by the Admin user(s).
Sign up and Login
If you want to use the Service of Nostromo you need to sign up to create an account and then login each time you want to connect. Just like with any other services.
Your login details may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate accounts for as many people as you would like.
Look, we know it’s highly unlikely, but yesterday we just read on the news that a robot attacked a human. Therefore, you must be a human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted and will be removed manually.

You may terminate your account and the Contracts between you and Nostromo by emailing us at email@example.com. There are couple of things you need to be aware of if you’re deleting your account.
First things first, by deleting your account all your personal data will be deleted. Your team however might need some of your earlier projects, comments and timesheet information.

Bear in mind that if when a team gets deleted, all other team members’ accounts will be terminated as well.
Please bear in mind that your Content might not be removed from our servers at the time of termination. Residual copies of your deleted Content might be kept for backup purposes however we do make sure not to keep them for longer than 14 days after terminating your account.
