This End User License Agreement (“Agreement”) is between you and Cowabinga LLC, developers of PICSII, and governs use of this app made available through the Apple App Store. By installing the PICSII App, you agree to be bound by this Agreement and understand that there is no tolerance for objectionable content. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are not entitled to use the PICSII App.
In order to ensure PICSII provides the best experience possible for everyone, we strongly enforce a no tolerance policy for objectionable content. If you see inappropriate content, please use the “Report an Issue” feature (screen display to enter text and submit).
This Agreement is between you and PICSII only, and not Apple, Inc. (“Apple”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that Apple and its subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement and Apple has the right to enforce this Agreement against you. PICSII, not Apple, is solely responsible for the PICSII App and its content.
PICSII may collect and use information about your usage of the PICSII App, including certain types of information from and about your device. PICSII may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to measure the use and performance of the PICSII App.
- Limited License
PICSII grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the PICSII App for your personal, non-commercial purposes. You may only use the PICSII App on Apple devices that you own or control and as permitted by the App Store Terms of Service.
Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Application is your “Submission.” Submissions are viewable by other users. In order to display your Submissions on the Application, and to allow other users to enjoy them (where applicable), you grant us certain rights in those Submissions.
For all Submissions, you hereby grant Cowabinga a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Application, as described in more detail below.
If you share a User Submission only in a manner that only certain specified users can view (for example, sharing pictures only with your followers) (a “Limited Audience User Submission”), then you grant Cowabinga the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Limited Audience User Submission for the sole purpose of making that Limited Audience User Submission accessible to such other specified users, and providing the Services necessary to do so. Also, you grant such other specified users a license to access that Limited Audience User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Application.
If you share a User Submission publicly on the Application and/or in a manner that more than just you or certain specified users can view, or if you provide us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Application] ([each of the foregoing, a “Public User Submission”), then you grant Cowabinga the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Submission for the purpose of making that Public User Submission accessible to all PICSII users and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with the Application and/or otherwise in connection with Cowabinga’s business. Also, you grant all other users of the Application a license to access that Public User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Application.
You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sub-licensable, irrevocable, and worldwide.
Finally, you understand and agree that Cowabinga, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Application to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
- Age Restrictions
By using the PICSII App, you represent and warrant that (a) you are 17 years of age or older and you agree to be bound by this Agreement; (b) if you are under 17 years of age, you have obtained verifiable consent from a parent or legal guardian; and (c) your use of the PICSII App does not violate any applicable law or regulation. Your access to the PICSII App may be terminated without warning if PICSII believes, in its sole discretion, that you are under the age of 17 years and have not obtained verifiable consent from a parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian and you provide your consent to your child’s use of the PICSII App, you agree to be bound by this Agreement in respect to your child’s use of the PICSII App.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. The PICSII App does not collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, do not send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Objectionable Content Policy
Content may not be submitted to PICSII, who will moderate all content and ultimately decide whether or not to post a submission to the extent such content includes, is in conjunction with, or alongside any, Objectionable Content. Objectionable Content includes, but is not limited to: (i) sexually explicit materials; (ii) obscene, defamatory, libelous, slanderous, violent and/or unlawful content or profanity; (iii) content that infringes upon the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity or other personal or proprietary right, or that is deceptive or fraudulent; (iv) content that promotes the use or sale of illegal or regulated substances, tobacco products, ammunition and/or firearms; and (v) gambling, including without limitation, any online casino, sports books, bingo or poker.
