URL shortening is a tool for locating information. We only provide links to things. linking is not the same as hosting material. No content or materials are ever stored or hosted on our networks. As such we are not responsible for the content of external sites or resources that are redirected by our service. We make a serious effort to police abuse, however, all links are user-generated. As a user of our service if you make a link, you are responsible for what you do with it!

There are no guarantees that it will be available at any given time, and no guarantees that the site or service will not be subject to interruptions. All direct or indirect risk related to use of this site is borne entirely by you, the user.
• Shorte.info only provides the technology to shorten web addresses. A short URL has no content. It simply forwards the user on to another web page. These short URLs are links to other websites... all created and shared by users of our service. Shorte.info is not the source of any content or the sharing. We don't send out promotional emails, SMS texts, or newsletters of any kind - so there is nothing to unsubscribe. If you received spam containing the Shorte.info domain, regretfully it was the work of abusers! Such as bulk email campaigns or attempts to hide malware or phishing behind a Shorte.info link. Please send us the link so that abuse of our service can be investigated.
