The buddhify.com website, the buddhify Android application and the buddhify iOS application (collectively “buddhify“) are run by the nice people at Mindfulness Everywhere Ltd (“Mindfulness Everywhere“). We created buddhify because we wanted to fill a gap – that of a fresh and accessible way for people to be introduced to meditation. To that end, it’s important all our users and fans act in a way that’s encouraging, nurturing and friendly. It is unacceptable to use the service for stuff like spam, viruses, or hate content, or anything that might hurt buddhify, Mindfulness Everywhere or anyone else. If you find someone who’s behaving in a bad way, please report it to via http://buddhify.com/contact

It’s quite a lot of legal chat but we have to put it here so thank you for your patience.
