Who Uses MURAL?
There are personal and professional uses for MURAL. Users may want to use MURAL to organize content from various sources and to collaborate with other users. Businesses may be interested in using MURAL to collaborate on projects. Schools may explore using MURAL for educational purposes. These are only some of the possible uses.
There are different account types. The details and pricing for all account types is available at www.mural.co/pricing.
What is MURAL?
MURAL is a robust platform for visual collaboration and group problem solving. In particular, MURAL users are able to integrate content from multiple sources, arrange it freely in a two-dimensional canvas, and share this content with other people.
The MURAL Platforms
MURAL is a service that can be consumed by any of its multiple apps. There are Desktop, Web and Mobile apps. Versions of the desktop app are available for Apple OSX and Microsoft Windows, and mobile versions are available for iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ devices. iPhone and iPad are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc. Android™ platform is a trademark of Google Inc.
Murals (“Murals”) are digital visual containers. They are scrollable and zoomable two-dimensional canvases. Murals can hold pictures, links to web content, links to files/documents, and text which can be arranged freely on the canvas. Each of the elements in a Mural has a link that could be shareable. The Mural itself is shareable as well. The mural creator can invite other people (by email, MURAL username or by creating a special link) to either collaborate or view a mural.
Murals can be organized in Rooms. Typically a team will create a room for a specific project and host all the murals related to that project inside a the room. Users can be invited into a room and room owners can define individual user permissions to create murals inside that room (not necessarily everyone invited to the room is allowed to create murals inside it). All members of a room have access to the murals hosted in the room, but murals might have extra members that are not part of the room (i.e you invite a client to view a specific mural in the room without giving him access to the whole room). An Account administrator is able to define which users have permission to create rooms.
Can Children Use MURAL?
If you are a school outside of the United States, please make sure that you are complying with any laws that apply to the collection and/or sharing of personal information of children before submitting information to the Services or otherwise using the Services.
What are Contributions?
The Services are designed to facilitate collaboration. It is possible for a user to post or submit a wide range of content to the Services (collectively, “Contributions”) and to collaborate with other users on Murals containing such Contributions. Contributions may include, but are not limited to, photos, videos, text, drawings/sketches, Web content (including files or documents from third party online storage services, notes from third party note-taking applications, and links from third party websites), and other materials. Please be aware that you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, any of your Contributions.
Contributions to Murals
When you invite users to Edit, they will be able to access all element previews, add content to a Mural, edit content in the mural, and even delete content in the mural. The activity will be logged and presented in the Activity Feed. Users can also copy and paste content into another Mural.
When you share your mural by creating View only links, users that access that link can only view the content and explore the links/files/documents.
Your Commitment to Our Rules Governing Contributions
When you create or make available a Contribution, you represent and warrant that you:
