We (the folks at IdeaForm) run a Portfolio hosting service called 4ormat.com and would love for you to use it. Our service is a paid monthly subscription. Our service allows you to create your own Portfolio website (each, a “Portfolio”), and is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your Portfolio as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your Portfolio or get linked to from your Portfolio (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).
You can check our Spotlight to get a sense of the types of Portfolios that are welcome on our service (or not!). If you find a 4ormat.com Portfolio that you believe violates our terms of service, please check our complaints page.
Your 4ormat.com Account and Site. If you create a Portfolio on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and Portfolio, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the Portfolio. You must not describe or assign keywords to your Portfolio in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and IdeaForm may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause IdeaForm liability. You must immediately notify IdeaForm of any unauthorized uses of your Portfolio, your account or any other breaches of security. IdeaForm will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Responsibility of Contributors. If you operate a Portfolio, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes graphics, text, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
By submitting Content to IdeaForm for inclusion on your Portfolio, you grant IdeaForm a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Portfolio. If you delete Content, IdeaForm will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Portfolio, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, IdeaForm has the right (though not the obligation) to, in IdeaForm’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in IdeaForm’s opinion, violates any IdeaForm policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in IdeaForm’s sole discretion. IdeaForm will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Payment and Renewal.
By using any of the services available on 4ormat.com you agree to pay IdeaForm the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated on the Website for those services, and any taxes applicable to those fees. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day your trial period ends and will cover the use of those services for the subscription period indicated. Subscription fees are not refundable. The fees for using our services will not change during your subscription period, but are otherwise subject to change at any time. If we change our fees, we will give our accountholders at least 30 days’ notice by email to the email address provided to us in their account information.
Unless you notify IdeaForm before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel your Portfolio and your account with us or we give you such notice, your subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such subscription (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Portfolios can be canceled at any time by contacting IdeaForm at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By linking to a non-4ormat website or webpage, IdeaForm does not represent or imply that it endorses such website or webpage. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content.
