Terms of Use, Privacy, Payment, Legal Claims & Report

Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities ("Statement," "Terms," or "SRR") derives from the MyGeez Principles, and is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with MyGeez, as well as MyGeez brands, products and services, which we call the “MyGeez Services” or “Services”. By using or accessing the MyGeez Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 13 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that help you understand how MyGeez works.

Because MyGeez provides a wide range of Services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product, or service. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with this SRR, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.

  1. Privacy
    Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Data Policy to make important disclosures about how you can use MyGeez to share with others and how we collect and can use your content and information. We encourage you to read the Data Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.
  2. Sharing Your Content and Information
    You own all of the content and information you post on MyGeez, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
    • For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with MyGeez (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
    • When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
    • When you use an application, the application may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information. (To learn more about Platform, including how you can control what information other people may share with applications, read our Data Policy and Platform Page.)
    • When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of MyGeez, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
    • We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about MyGeez, but you understand that we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

  • Sharing With Third-Party Partners and Customers
    We work with third party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to people around the world.
    Here are the types of third parties we can share information with about you:
    • Advertising, Measurement and Analytics Services (Non-Personally Identifiable Information Only).
    • We want our advertising to be as relevant and interesting as the other information you find on our Services. With this in mind, we use all of the information we have about you to show you relevant ads. We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information like name or email address that can by itself be used to contact you or identifies who you are) with advertising, measurement or analytics partners unless you give us permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or installed an app after seeing an ad, or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25 year old female, in Madrid, who likes software engineering) to these partners to help them understand their audience or customers, but only after the advertiser has agreed to abide by our advertiser guidelines.
    • Please review your advertising preferences to understand why you’re seeing a particular ad on MyGeez. You can adjust your ad preferences if you want to control and manage your ad experience on MyGeez.
  • Vendors, service providers and other partners.
    We transfer information to vendors, service providers, and other partners who globally support our business, such as providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our Services are used, measuring the effectiveness of ads and services, providing customer service, facilitating payments, or conducting academic research and surveys. These partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Data Policy and the agreements we enter into with them.
  • How can I manage or delete information about me?
    • You can manage the content and information you share when you use MyGeez through the Activity Log tool. You can also download information associated with your MyGeez account through our Download Your Information tool.
    • We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data to provide products and services.
    • You can delete your account any time. When you delete your account, we may delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates. If you do not want to delete your account, but want to temporarily stop using MyGeez, you may deactivate your account instead. Keep in mind that information that others have shared about you is not part of your account and will not be deleted when you delete your account.
  • How do we respond to legal requests or prevent harm?
    We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of our Services. Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made with MyGeez, may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.

    MyGeez may share information internally within our family of companies or with third parties for purposes described in this policy.
  • How will we notify you of changes to this policy?
    We’ll notify you before we make changes to this policy and give you the opportunity to review and comment on the revised policy before continuing to use our Services.

      If you fund a payment by debit or credits card and your transaction, including renewals, results in an overdraft or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.
    • Incompatibility.
      You may at some point encounter an app or feature that does not support the payment method you would prefer to use – for example, if an item or feature that you wish to purchase is priced in local currency, you won’t be able to use Credits as a payment method; however, you can select a different type of payment instrument (such as credit or debit card, or mobile operator billing).
    • Mobile billing.
      Mobile operator billing is another payment method we have made available for your convenience. If you use mobile billing as a funding instrument, you consent to the following applicable risks and other terms:
    • By choosing the mobile billing payment method, you agree that we and your mobile operator may exchange information about you in order to facilitate completion or reversal of payments, resolution of disputes, provision of customer support, or other billing-related activity.
    • You are responsible for any charges, fees, changes to your mobile plan service or billing, alterations to your mobile device, or any other consequence that may arise out of your use of mobile billing.
    • If you use mobile billing, you are bound not only by these Terms, but also by the terms and conditions of your mobile operator.
    • If you have questions about any charges or fees that appear on your mobile phone bill, you may contact your mobile provider’s customer service division.
    • Sometimes, use of mobile billing in a funding transaction may lead to charges that, for various technical reasons beyond our control, cannot be refunded to you. In these cases, we have the right, but not the obligation, to issue you a courtesy credit to your electronic value Balance.
  3. Actions We and You May Take.
    • Our right to cancel.
      We may cancel any transaction if we believe the transaction violates these Terms or the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, or if we believe doing so may prevent financial loss. We may also cancel any electronic value accumulated, transferred, assigned, or sold as a result of fraudulent or illegal behavior.
    • Payment limitations.
      In order to prevent financial loss to you or to us, we may place a delay on a payment for a period of time, or limit funding instruments for a transaction, or limit your ability to make a purchase, or deactivate your account.
    • Sharing of information.
      In order to prevent financial loss to you or to us, we may contact your funding instrument issuer, law enforcement, or affected third parties (including other users) and share details of any payments you are associated with, if we believe doing so may prevent financial loss or a violation of law.
    • Duty to notify us.
      If you believe that an unauthorized or otherwise problematic transaction has taken place under your account, you agree to notify us immediately, so that we may take action to prevent financial loss. Unless you submit the claim to us within 30 days after the charge, you will have waived, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all claims against us arising out of or otherwise related to the transaction
    • Agreement to pay.
      When you purchase advertising or promoted posts on or through MyGeez, you agree to pay all amounts specified in the order, along with any applicable taxes.
    • Tax liability.
      The amounts charged to you by us, whether through your credit card or otherwise, may be subject to and include applicable taxes, including without limitation withholding taxes. It is your responsibility to remit any taxes that apply to your transactions. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any claim arising out of your failure to do so.
  4. Notices and Amendments to These Terms.
    • Notice to you.
      By using the MyGeez service, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically any important information regarding your purchases or your account. We may also provide notices to you by posting them on our website, or by sending them to an email address or street address that you previously provided to us. Website and email notices shall be considered received by you within 24 hours of the time posted or sent; notices by postal mail shall be considered received within three (3) business days of the time sent.
    • Amendment guidelines.
      We may update these Payments Terms at any time without notice as we deem necessary to the full extent permitted by law. The Payments Terms in place at the time you confirm a transaction will govern that transaction.
  5. Additional Terms
    • “Us”. Without limiting Section 8.1, above, the following are the entities to which “us,” “we,” “our,” or “MyGeez” refer:
