It’s been two years since HipChat joined the Atlassian family, and we’re bigger and better because of it. Of course, when a product grows this quickly there are always lots of big changes going on. We need to rewrite certain bits of code to make them faster, change the way our servers run to make them more reliable, improve the way our team is organized so we can keep it productive, and implement new ways to support our users.
The Atlassian terms will be effective starting May 27, 2014 for free accounts and new purchases. For existing subscriptions, the new agreement will take effect on your first renewal after this date. If your subscription is set to auto-renew, and you are not willing to accept the terms of the new agreement, please make sure to cancel prior to your next renewal.
Adopting the Atlassian terms will bring HipChat in line with the other Atlassian products you might be using and will help us stay focused on building a great product for you. If you have any questions you can direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
