Flayvr Media, Ltd. (“us”, “our”, “we”) offers an exciting mobile application to spice up online experiences by sharing photos, videos and other content or media (the “Application”). These Terms of Service (these “ Terms”) govern your use of the Application. As used herein, “You” or a “User” could mean any individual that registers to use or uses the Application (whether to create or to view a Flayvr) or accesses the Application. A “Flayvr” means a collection of photos, videos and other content or media, where the collection is created by the Application.

Please read these Terms carefully. By using the Application or viewing a Flayvr, you signify your assent to both these Terms and our privacy policy, which is available here (the “Privacy Policy”). Changes may be made to these Terms from time to time. Your continued use of the Application will be deemed acceptance to amended or updated terms. If you do not agree to any of these Terms, please do not use the Application.

Login and Account

You do not currently need an account to use the Application. Even so, Users may access the Application using “Facebook Connect” or a Google account in order to use certain functionality provided by the Application. We may in the future allow you to use other social network or login services, such as “Twitter login” in our sole discretion. In addition, in the future we may allow or require you to create a separate account in order to use or access the Application. We reserve the right to refuse to allow a User to access the Application or open an account for any reason, all at our sole discretion.

You should not reveal your login or account information to other users. We will not ask you to reveal your password or login information. If you forget your password, you can request to have a new password sent to your registered e-mail address. Your account is at risk if you let someone use it inappropriately and your account is subject to termination if you or anyone using your account violates these Terms.

You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your login information or password. You are fully and solely responsible for the security of your computer system and all activity on your account or with your login information, even if such activities were not committed by you. We will not be liable for any losses or damage arising from unauthorized use of your account, login information or password, and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless for any improper or illegal use of your account or login information, including any mail sent, content posted and any charges and taxes incurred, unless you have notified us via e-mail to support@flayvr.com that your account or login information has been compromised, and have requested us to block access to it. This includes illegal or improper use by someone to whom you have given permission to use your account or login information.

By using the Application, you attest that you are at least 13 years old. If you are under 18 years of age, you confirm that you have the permission of your parents or guardian to use the Application, and that your parent or guardian has agreed to these Terms.

Termination of Use

You agree that we may for any reason, in our sole discretion and without notice, cease to allow you to use the Application and remove any Content (as defined below) associated with your account. Grounds for such termination may include (i) extended periods of inactivity, (ii) violation of the letter or spirit of these Terms, (iii) fraudulent, harassing or abusive behavior or (iv) behavior that is harmful to other users, third parties, or our business interests.

If we believe, in our sole discretion, that a violation of these Terms or any illegal or inappropriate behavior has occurred, we may take any other corrective action we deem appropriate. We reserve the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms or illegal and inappropriate behavior on the Application. We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or behavior of anyone believed to have violated these Terms or to have engaged in illegal behavior on the Application. Any suspension, termination, or cancellation shall not affect your obligations to us under these Terms (including but not limited to ownership, intellectual property, indemnification, and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination, or cancellation.

We reserve the right to change, update or cease to offer the Application at any time. Use of the Application is currently free, but we may begin charging for use of the Application or any part thereof at any time in our sole discretion.
