TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Socible is a social networking app designed for meeting people who share interests with you, near you. Our primary focus will be on providing a simple, fast and effective journey that will empower you to create new experiences and establish new friendships. These Terms explain how Socible supplies the services offered through its mobile application (the “App”). The App is intended to be a fun place to visit, but it is also important that we keep it a friendly and safe environment for all of our users. You agree that you will only use the App in accordance with these terms and conditions (the “Terms”). As stated above, the Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you as the user (“you”) and Salim Shabbir Rupawala (“we” or “us”) as the owner of the App. You will always be able to find a copy of these Terms on the App itself, but you might want to print off a copy for your records.
Anyone can download the App from the Apple App Store but in order to use its functions, you must register. If you do decide to register, you do so of the basis of these Terms.
The App is a meeting place for adults only. This is because under English law, children are not capable of entering into legally binding contracts such as these Terms.
By registering as a user, you confirm that you are over 18 years of age and are therefore able to enter into and be bound by the Terms. You also confirm that you have not been convicted of, nor are subject to any court order relating to assault, violence, sexual misconduct or harassment.
Please bear in mind that these Terms may change from time to time, but we will of course notify you to let you know if and when we update these Terms. If you continue to use the App after that, you will have accepted the new version of the Terms.
When you register to use the App, you will be asked to create an account by connecting to the App either through your Facebook or Google+ account. If you do not have or are not willing to create a Facebook or Google+ account, you will not be able to register to use the App.
Registering in this way will allow us to access your first name, last name, email address and profile picture. You can supplement your profile with further information about yourself, or change your details by accessing your profile and updating the relevant information.
You should not let anyone else access the App through your account. If you do, we are not liable for any unauthorised access to the App.
You will be able to post all kinds of things on the App, including photographs, messages and other content (“Content”). You are solely responsible and liable for all activities carried out through your use of the App and for securing and backing up your Content.
You agree that you will not post Content or use language which:
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
When you post Content of any nature to the App, you confirm that you either own the intellectual property rights in that Content, or if those rights belong to someone else, you have their express permission to use it and post it to the App.
By posting or sending Content to other users through the App, you give us permission to reuse that Content on a non-exclusive basis anywhere in the world. This will enable us, without charge, to store, edit, copy, modify, adapt, translate, re-format, advertise, distribute other otherwise make available to the general public such Content, whether in whole or in part.
You may revoke this permission at anytime by deleting the App. We will then remove your Content from the App as soon as possible, and from our servers over a reasonable period of time, as we determine.
You agree not to infringe our intellectual property rights or post content that infringes the intellectual property rights of others, whether they are users of the App or not.
Where you post Content that infringes the intellectual property rights of someone, we may delete that Content immediately should we be contacted by somebody complaining about it. We will contact you to let you know we have done this. We 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 their right to privacy or any other law.
Just as you own the Content which you post to the App, we own the framework and content of the App itself. You acknowledge that all intellectual property rights in the App belong to us, and that you have no rights in, or to the App, other than the rights to use each of them in accordance with these Terms. This includes all text, graphics, user interfaces, trademarks, logos, sounds and artwork on the App.
Except as expressly set out in these Terms, you agree not to copy, adapt, vary or modify the App or make any alterations to, or modifications of the whole or any part of the App or permit the App or any part of it to be combined with, or become incorporated in any other programs.
ACCESS TO THE APP
We cannot guarantee that the App will be up and running at all times. Naturally, we have to carry out maintenance to the App when we are adding a new feature or function, or alternatively when there is a fault or circumstances which are beyond our control.
We reserve the right under these Terms to suspend, withdraw, amend or modify or vary the App without notice and without incurring any liability to you.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform or for the delay in the performance of any of our obligations under these Terms. This might include a failure of an internet service provider to deliver notifications or emails to you, for instance.
You can terminate your registration at any time by accessing the ‘Settings’ section of the App and choosing the ‘delete account’ button. Once your registration is deleted, we have the right to delete any Content that you have submitted to the App.
TERMINATION OF YOUR ACCOUNT
If you act in way which is not consistent with the purpose of the App or these Terms, we may terminate your registration immediately.
We may also terminate your registration, if at our discretion, we consider it to have become inactive. Generally this will be where you have not used the App for a year or so, but it may be less and there may be other factors which we take into account.
We will try (but we are not obliged) to notify you if your access to the App is to be or has been terminated.
The App may contain links to other sites, resources and purchase opportunities which are provided by third parties. These links are provided for your information only.
If you access these links, you may be directed to third party sites. These sites will have their own terms and conditions and privacy policies which may be different to our Terms.
We have no control over third party sites or resources and we therefore don’t accept any responsibility for them, including (but not limited to) the third party site’s compliance with any applicable laws or regulation.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Nothing in these Terms excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by English law.
There are however certain types of liability that we are permitted by law to limit or exclude. Therefore, to the extent permitted by law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms which may apply to our App or any content on it, whether express or implied. We will not be liable to you or any third party for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expense (including loss of profits, data, business or goodwill) that you might suffer as a result of using the App, however that loss, damage or expense might arise.
You acknowledge that the App has not been developed to meet your individual requirements and is for domestic and private use only. You agree not to use the App for any commercial, business or resale purpose and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity.
We hereby exclude liability for any virus, infection or other harm caused to your systems through your use of the App or when following links to websites run by other people.
If you act in a way that upsets other users, you are responsible for the consequences. We expressly disclaim any and all responsibility and liability for your conduct or the conduct of any other user of the App, and expressly disclaim any liability for content uploaded by you or by any other user.
These limitations and exclusions of liability will survive the termination of your registration (see below), which in turn would terminate our contract with you.
If we are sued as a result of your use of the App, we have the right to defend or settle the relevant claim as we see fit. If we ask you to, you will co-operate fully and reasonably as required by us in defending any claim.
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify us from and against any third party claims, damages (actual and/or consequential), actions, proceedings, demands, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including our legal fees) suffered or reasonably incurred by us as a result of, or in connection with your use of the App, the uploading or submission of Content to the App by you, or your conduct, other than in accordance with these Terms or any applicable law or regulation.
Your use of the App is at your sole risk. We do not guarantee that our site will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.
You must not misuse our site by knowingly introducing viruses, trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to our site, the server on which our site is stored or any server, computer or database connected to our site.
COMMUNICATION BETWEEN US
We will send this information to you in the form of notifications via the App or an email to the email address which you provided to us when you registered to use the App. It is therefore important that you keep your email address with us up to date. The law of England and Wales requires us to send you certain information in writing, so you accept that information we provide to you via electronic means, is indeed “written” for this purpose.
If you wish to contact us in writing, or if any condition of these Terms requires you to give us notice in writing, you can send this to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We prefer to use email for all communications, but you can send us a letter by post to our trading address which can be found at the bottom of this page.
If you have any complaints about the use of Socible or have any evidence to suggest that another user breaches these Terms, please do let us know so that we can take appropriate action. Our email address is email@example.com.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations. You may only transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that does not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
These Terms set out the entire agreement and understanding between us and you in relation to our use of the App and supersedes all previous agreements, representations and arrangements between us (either oral or written). Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.
Each paragraph of these Terms operates separately. If at some point in the future, a court or competent authority finds that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
Finally, the terms are subject to and governed by English law and any dispute that arises from our relationship with you or your use of the App will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
