SETTING UP AN ACCOUNT 
In order to use the mobile application (“the App”) , you will need to create an account (“Account”) by registering. As we said above, you need to be over 18 years old, and it must be permissible to use the App legally in your country or other applicable jurisdiction where you live. When you create an account you may be asked to provide certain personal information about yourself, to create a username, and a password.  You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information about your Account. 
When you create your account please:

  • Use correct personal information (please avoid false usernames) 

  • create accounts for yourself or for people who give you permission

  • Create a username without the intent to impersonate someone else

  • Avoid a username subject to rights of another without appropriate authorization

  • Refrain from offensive, vulgar, obscene or otherwise poorly selected user names

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading or violates any of the restrictions stated above, or otherwise violates our Terms. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account, and agree to notify us if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. You are responsible for activities that occur under your Account.

You can link your Account to various webmail, social networking, and other online accounts. You may only link your own accounts. We will access and retrieve your account information from these sites on your behalf (in some cases, by using your username and password) to make certain information or services available to you through the Service. By linking your other accounts, you expressly authorize us to access, display and use your account information from those third party accounts, on your behalf as your agent and permit us to access, use and, in some cases, store your account information to accomplish the foregoing.

TERMINATING AN ACCOUNT 
We hope that you stay with us, but in the event you decide to leave we want to tell you what will happen. If you want to delete your information and your account, please contact us(legal@SocialMama.us) with a request that we delete your account and information. We will take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records and as otherwise required by law. 

USING THE APP
We allow you to access, view and share updates and information with your friends and other users through our App. As long as you comply with these Terms, you have the right to download and install a copy of the App to your mobile device, and to access and use the Service, for your own personal use. 

 

You may not: 

  1. copy, modify or distribute the App for any purpose

  2. transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, rent or otherwise distribute the App or the Service to any third party 

  3. decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, or create derivative works of the App or the Service

  4. make the functionality of the App or the Service available to multiple users through any means 

  5. use the Service in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with these Terms.

 

The following terms apply to any App accessed through or downloaded from any app store or distribution platform (including, but not limited to the Apple App Store and Google Play) where the App is made available (each an “App Provider”). You acknowledge and agree that:

These Terms are concluded between you and SocialMama, and not with the App Provider, and that SocialMama (not the App Provider), is solely responsible for the App. The App Provider has no obligation to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect to the App. In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the App Provider, and the App Provider will refund the purchase price for the App to you (if applicable) and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the App Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App. Any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of SocialMama. The App Provider is not responsible for addressing any claims you have or any claims of any third party relating to the App or your possession and use of the App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.

In the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of that App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, SocialMama will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms.

 

The App Provider, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms as related to your license of the App, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, the App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as related to your license of the App against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. You must also comply with all applicable third party terms of service when using the App.
