Scrum Social Terms and Conditions
Hey, welcome to Scrum Social’s Terms and Conditions of Use (these “Terms”). This is a contract between you and Scrum Social App and we want you to be aware of yours and our rights before you use the Scrum Social application (“App” or “Scrum Social”). Please take some time to read these Terms before enjoying the App, because once you access, view or use the App, you will be legally bound by these Terms.
If you have any questions about these Terms or our App, please contact us at: email@example.com
1. Scrum Social rules
Before you can use our App, you will need to register for an account (“Account”). In order to create an Account you must:
- sign in through your Facebook, Google or Apple account, or by providing your first name, date of birth, and phone number;
- be at least 18 years old; and,
- be legally permitted to use the App in your country.
You cannot use another user’s Account without her permission.
You cannot create duplicate Scrum Social accounts in addition to your original account, unless Scrum Social requests you to do so for technical reasons.
Scrum Social App Limited reserves the right at its sole discretion to terminate or suspend any Account, or make use of any operational, technological, legal or other means available to enforce the Terms (including without limitation blocking specific IP addresses), at any time without liability and without the need to give you prior notice.
2. Types of content
There are three types of content that you will be able to access on the App:
- content that you upload and provide (“Your Content”);
- content that members provide (“Member Content”); and
- content that Scrum Social App Limited provide (“Our Content”).
We don’t allow certain content on Scrum Social
We want our users to freely communicate on Scrum Social, but we have to impose restrictions on certain content that:
- contains language which could be deemed offensive or is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm, or annoy any other person;
- is obscene, pornographic, or otherwise may offend human dignity;
- is abusive, insulting, or threatening, or which promotes or encourages racism, sexism, hatred, or bigotry;
- encourages any illegal activity including, without limitation, terrorism, inciting racial hatred, or the submission of which in itself constitutes committing a criminal offence;
- is defamatory or libellous;
- relates to commercial activities (including, without limitation, sales, competitions, and advertising, links to other websites or premium line telephone numbers);
- involves the transmission of “junk” mail or “spam”;
- contains any spyware, adware, viruses, corrupt files, worm programmes, or other malicious code designed to interrupt, damage, or limit the functionality of or disrupt any software, hardware, telecommunications, networks, servers, or other equipment, Trojan horse or any other material designed to damage, interfere with, wrongly intercept or expropriate any data or personal information whether from Scrum Social or otherwise;
- itself, or the posting of which, infringes any third party’s rights (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights and privacy rights);
- shows another person which was created or distributed without that person’s consent; and/or
- breaches the terms of our Community Guidelines.
We operate a zero-tolerance policy for this kind of content.
To guarantee a safe environment for all, you must also comply with our Community Guidelines, when engaging with the Scrum Social community section.
We have a moderation team that reviews Your Content and Member Content to ensure that it complies with these Terms. Our moderation tools and team of moderators may remove any of Your Content that they consider breaches our Community Guidelines, restrict or prohibit your access to the App, and/or delete your Account, if in their reasonable opinion, you breach any of the restrictions in these Terms or the Community Guidelines.
As Your Content is created by you, you are responsible and liable for Your Content and will indemnify, defend, release, and hold us harmless from any claims made in connection with Your Content.
You may not display any personal contact or banking information on your individual profile page whether in relation to you or any other person (for example, names, home addresses or postcodes, telephone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit card or other banking details). If you do choose to reveal any personal information about yourself to other users, whether via email or otherwise, it is at your own risk. We encourage you to use the same caution in disclosing details about yourself to third parties online as you would under any other circumstances.
Scrum Social is a public community, so Your Content will be visible to other users of the App all around the world. Please make sure you are comfortable sharing Your Content before you post it, particularly insofar as it relates to your children. As such, you agree that Your Content may be viewed by other users, including Scrum Social Pros, and any person visiting, participating in or who is sent a link to the App. By uploading Your Content on Scrum Social, you represent and warrant to us that you have all necessary rights and licences to do so, and automatically grant us a non-exclusive, royalty free, perpetual, worldwide licence to use Your Content in any way (including, without limitation, editing, copying, modifying, adapting, translating, reformatting, creating derivative works from, incorporating into other works, advertising, distributing and otherwise making available to the general public Your Content, whether in whole or in part and in any format or medium currently known or developed in the future).
We may assign and/or sub-licence the above licence to our affiliates and successors without any further approval by you.
We have the right to remove, edit, limit or block access to any of Your Content at any time, and we have no obligation to display or review Your Content.
Other members of Scrum Social around the world will also share content via the App. Member Content belongs to the user who posted the content and is stored on our servers and displayed via the App at the direction of the user providing the Member Content.
Some users sharing Member Content will be identified as ‘Scrum Social Pros’. These are individuals that have established themselves as an expert in their field, or have undertaken specialist training in a field of expertise, and may include doctors, nurses, therapists and sleep consultants.
We try to ensure only appropriately qualified experts are recognised as Scrum Social Pros, but we do not independently verify the identity or credentials of Scrum Social Pros.
Scrum Social Pros provide Member Content for general information purposes only. You should not rely solely on opinions or advice given by Scrum Social Pros, or appearing in other Member Content. Member Content is no substitute for professional advice, so you should always speak to a professional with respect to any questions you may have regarding your physical or mental health, and do not disregard any professional advice you have received. We are not responsible for, and will not be liable for, any loss or damage caused by your reliance on any advice or Member Content provided by users, including Scrum Social Pros.
You do not have any rights in relation to other users’ Member Content, and you may only use other Scrum Social users’ personal information to the extent that your use of it matches Scrum Social’s purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other users’ information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your Account if you misuse other users’ information.
The rest of the content on Scrum Social belongs to us. Any other text, content, graphics, user interfaces, trademarks, logos, sounds, artwork, and other intellectual property appearing on Scrum Social are owned, controlled or licensed by us and are protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property law rights. All right, title and interest in and to Our Content remains with us at all times.
We grant you a non-exclusive, limited, personal, non-transferable, revocable, license to access and use Our Content, without the right to sublicense, under the following conditions:
- you shall not use, sell, modify, or distribute Our Content except as permitted by the functionality of the App;
- you shall not use our name in metatags, keywords and/or hidden text;
- you shall not create derivative works from Our Content or commercially exploit Our Content, in whole or in part, in any way; and
- you shall use Our Content for lawful purposes only.
We reserve all other rights.
3. Restrictions on the app
