Uploading content to our App

Whenever you make use of a feature that allows you to upload content to our App, or to make contact with other users of our App, you must comply with the Content Standards set out in our Acceptable Use Policy below.

You warrant that any such contribution does comply with those standards, and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty.

Any content you upload to our App will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. You retain all of your ownership rights in your content, but you are required to grant us and other users of the App a limited licence to use, store and copy that content and to distribute and make it available to third parties.

We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any content posted or uploaded by you to our App constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy. We will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any content posted by you or any other user of our App.

We have the right to remove any posting you make on our App if, in our opinion, your post does not comply with the content standards set out in our Acceptable Use Policy below.

The views expressed by other users on our App do not represent our views or values.

You are solely responsible for securing and backing up your content.

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

This Acceptable Use Policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access the App and applies to all users of, and visitors to, our App.

Prohibited Uses

You may download and use our App only for lawful purposes. You may not download and/or use our App:

  • In any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation.

  • In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.

  • For the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way.

  • To send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our Content Standards detailed below.

  • To transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam).

  • To knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, automatic scraping robots, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer, mobile device or tablet code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer, mobile device or tablet software or hardware.


    You also agree:

  • Not to reproduce, duplicate, copy or re-sell any part of our App in contravention of the provisions of these Terms of Use.

  • Not to access without authority, interfere with, damage or disrupt:

  • any part of our App;

  • any equipment or network on which our App is stored;

  • any software used in the provision of our App; or

  • any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.


Interactive Services

We provide interactive services on our App, including, without limitation:

  • Chat rooms.

  • Profile pages.

  • Rating of other users ("Interactive Services").

  • Other users search.


Where we do provide any Interactive Service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our App, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our App, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a user in contravention of our Content Standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an Interactive Service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.

Content Standards

These Content Standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our App ("Contributions"), and to any Interactive Services associated with it. You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
