Salvanote Terms of Service

Last updated: 25 Feb 2019

Terms of Service ("Terms")

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”) carefully before using the Salvanote Mobile App (“App”) and/or websites on the salvanote.com domain (“Website(s)”) (together known as the “Service”), operated by Salvanote Pty Ltd (“us”, “we”, “our”, “Salvanote”).

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, administrators, and others who access or use any part of the Service.

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.

In order to use the Salvanote Service, you need to (1) be 18 years or older, or be 13 years or older and have your parent or guardian’s consent to these Terms, (2) have the power to enter a binding contract with us and not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws. You also promise that any registration information that you submit to us is true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times.

Good Faith

You promise to act in good faith at all times in your use of the Service, and in any representations you make about the Service, whether public or private, in whatever form.

Termination

We may terminate or suspend access to the Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.

All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

Subscriptions

Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”), the terms of which are described separately in the Subscription Agreement.

Content

Users may post, upload, or otherwise contribute content to the Service (which may include, for example, pictures, text, messages, video, audio, information, documents, and/or other types of content) (“User Content”). For the avoidance of doubt, “User Content” includes any such content provided to the App or Websites, as well as any other part of the Service.

You promise that, with respect to any User Content you produce, you own or have the right to post/send such User Content, and:

  1. when the User Content is provided in a message in the App:
    Such User Content, or its use by you or the message recipient(s), does not violate these Terms, or User Guidelines, or any other rights set forth in applicable law, or the intellectual property, publicity, personality, or other rights of others or imply any affiliation with or endorsement of you or your User Content by us without express written consent from us and/or the individual or entity holding those rights.
  2. when the User Content is provided via our Website(s):
    such User Content, or its use by us as contemplated by these Terms or other agreements, does not violate these Terms, or User Guidelines, or any other rights set forth within these Terms, applicable law, or the intellectual property, publicity, personality, or other rights of others or imply any affiliation with or endorsement of you or your User Content by us or any entity or individual without express written consent from us and/or such individual or entity.

Salvanote may, but has no obligation to, monitor, review, or edit User Content provided via our Websites. In all cases, we reserve the right to remove or disable access to any User Content for any or no reason, including User Content that, in our sole discretion, violates the Terms. We may take these actions without prior notification to you or any third party. Removal or disabling of access to User Content shall be at our sole discretion, and we do not promise to remove or disable access to any specific User Content.

You are solely responsible for all User Content that you post or send. Salvanote is not responsible for User Content nor does it endorse any opinion contained in any User Content.

YOU AGREE THAT IF ANYONE BRINGS A CLAIM AGAINST SALVANOTE RELATED TO USER CONTENT THAT YOU POST/SEND, THEN, TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER LOCAL LAW, YOU WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD SALVANOTE HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND EXPENSES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES AND COSTS) ARISING OUT OF SUCH CLAIM.

Rights You Grant Us

In consideration of the rights granted to you under the Terms, you grant us the right (1) to allow the Service to use the processor, bandwidth, and storage hardware on your Device in order to facilitate the operation of the Service, (2) to provide information and Content to you.

If you provide feedback, ideas or suggestions to us in connection with the Service or Content (“Feedback”), you acknowledge that the Feedback is not confidential and you authorise us to use that Feedback without restriction and without payment to you. Feedback is considered a type of User Content.

Excluding direct private messages sent within the App to parties not directly representing Salvanote, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid, worldwide license to use, reproduce, make available to the public (e.g. perform or display), publish, translate, modify, create derivative works from, and distribute any of your User Content in connection with the Service through any medium, whether alone or in combination with other Content or materials, in any manner and by any means, method or technology, whether now known or hereafter created. Aside from the rights specifically granted herein, you retain ownership of all rights, including intellectual property rights, in the User Content. Where applicable and permitted under applicable law, you also agree to waive and not enforce any “moral rights” or equivalent rights, such as your right to be identified as the author of any User Content, including Feedback, and your right to object to derogatory treatment of such User Content.

You understand, agree, and accept that Salvanote will make reasonable efforts, although it has no obligation to maintain, support, upgrade, or update the Service, or to provide all or any specific content through the Service. Salvanote and/or the owners of any Content may, from time to time, remove any such Content without notice. This section will be enforced to the extent permissible by applicable law.
