Terms of Service (“Terms”)

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”) carefully before using the https://paperqa.com/ website (the “Service”) operated by PaperQA (“us”, “we”, or “our”).

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all authors, visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.


Our Service allows you to post, link, store, share and otherwise make available certain information, text, graphics, videos, or other material (“Content”).

You understand that all information publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Service is the sole responsibility of the person by whom such content was submitted. We will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any content. When necessary and/or appropriate, as when another User reports inappropriate content to us, we may delete, modify, or reformat any materials, content, or information submitted by you. We do not endorse and have no control over any content submitted to the Service. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of any Member Submission. You acknowledge that all content accessed by you in connection with your use of the Service is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss to any party resulting from your access to or your inability to access such content.

You are responsible to ensure that the use or other exploitation of any submissions by you does not violate or infringe the rights of any third party, including but not limited to any publicity rights, privacy rights, patent, contract rights, copyrights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights. Except in the case of Member Submissions containing content exclusively in the public domain, you represent and warrant, and can demonstrate to our full satisfaction upon request that (1) you have full authority to act on behalf of any and all owners of any right, title, or interest in and to any content in your Member Submissions to use such content as contemplated by these Terms, and (2) you own or otherwise control any and all rights or licenses required in order to submit or share all content in your Member Submissions and you consent to the use of such content as contemplated by these Terms.

If you have chosen to make your information publicly available, you understand that Member Submissions may be shared with third parties in connection with your use of the Service, and that we cannot and do not control any such third parties. For further information, please contact [email protected] Much of the content you post is available to be viewed or downloaded by Visitors.

Changes to the Service

We reserve the right to modify the Service or to offer services different from those offered at the time of the User’s registration at any time.

Modifications that only have a minor impact on the functionality of the Service are not considered changes to the Service as described in this section. This applies in particular to changes of a purely graphical nature and to a change of layout and/or placement of features.

Changes to these Terms

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. Changes will be determined at our sole discretion and a notice will be made available for the Members. New terms shall be effective thirty days from the date of such notice. Members who have not yet accepted the new terms before the effective date will be told that if they continue to use the Service thereafter they will be deemed to have accepted the new terms. In our notices, we will inform you of the main changes to these Terms, your right to object and the importance of the deadline to object. You are obliged to check your account regularly for a notice about changes to these Terms. If you do not agree with the new terms, you may terminate your agreement with PaperQA at any time by disabling your account.

Term, Termination 

You may terminate the contractual relationship at any time without cause by simply disabling or deleting your account. PaperQA is entitled to immediate termination at any time without cause.

No warranty and release

The Service is provided “as is” and we disclaim any and all representations and warranties, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose, or non-infringement. We do not promise any specific results, effects, or outcome from the use of the Service.

We do not represent or warrant that the Service and the data and information provided are accurate, up-to-date, complete, or reliable. We are not responsible or liable for any damage, disadvantage, or loss of profit, whether material or immaterial, that is caused by the usage or non-usage of the Service. This does not apply to damages, disadvantages, and loss of profit that are caused by us intentionally or recklessly. Some laws do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability, so these limits may not apply to you. However, if you are a resident of the State of New Jersey, these limitations and exclusions do apply to you.

If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.


The method of payment may be different depending on the country in which you reside. Payments will be made once you have at least 50 USD in your PaperQA account. In case of account termination, any unprocessed balance will not be payable.

Links To Other Web Sites

Our Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by PaperQA. PaperQA has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that PaperQA shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.
