Negotiated Terms of Service Agreements

Illustrated stock image of a signed agreement documentBefore you decide to use one of the free digital tools below, seek the advice of your agency Terms of Service (TOS) Point of Contact (POC) to be sure your agency has already signed a federal-compatible TOS, that the product supports your broader agency mission and goals, and that the TOS is legally appropriate for use by your agency. See complete implementation guidance on the main Terms of Service page.

Here’s the list of tools that have federal-compatible Terms of Service agreements. Keep in mind that even though a tool may be on the list, your agency may not have agreed to the TOS for that tool. The federal government doesn’t endorse, sponsor or recommend the products or services on this site or consider them to be superior to any other products or services.
