Terms of Service
Last Updated on May 24, 2018. These terms and conditions are effective immediately for those registering accounts after that date. These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of Qmoo’s application and any websites and mobile applications that link to or reference these Terms (“App”). By accessing or using the App, you are agreeing to these Terms and concluding a legally binding contract with Qmoo AB, a company incorporated in Sweden (“Qmoo”). Do not access or use the App if you are unwilling or unable to be bound by the Terms.
“You” and “your” refer to you, as a user of the App. A “user” is someone who accesses, browses, crawls, scrapes, or in any way uses the App. “We”, “us”, and “our” refer to Qmoo.
“Content” means text, images, photos, audio, video, location data, and all other forms of data or communication. “Your Content” means Content that you submit or transmit to, through, or in connection with the App, such as ratings, reviews, compliments, invitations, check-ins, messages, and information that you publicly display or displayed in your account profile. “User Content” means Content that users submit or transmit to, through, or in connection with the App. “Qmoo Content” means Content that we create and make available in connection with the App. “Third Party Content” means Content that originates from parties other than Qmoo or its users, which is made available in connection with the App. “App Content” means all of the Content that is made available in connection with the App, including Your Content, User Content, Third Party Content, and Qmoo Content.
Changes to the Terms of Service
We may modify the Terms from time to time. You understand and agree that your access to or use of the App is governed by the Terms effective at the time of your access to or use of the App. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will notify you by posting a notice on the App prior to the effective date of the changes. We will also indicate at the top of this page the date that revisions were last made. You should revisit these Terms on a regular basis as revised versions will be binding on you. Any such modification will be effective upon our posting of new Terms. You understand and agree that your continued access to or use of the App after the effective date of modifications to the Terms indicates your acceptance of the modifications.
We may translate these Terms into other languages for your convenience. Nevertheless, the English version governs your relationship with Qmoo, and any inconsistencies among the different versions will be resolved in favor of the English version.

Responsibility for Your Content
You alone are responsible for Your shared Content. You assume all risks associated with Your Content, including anyone’s reliance on its quality, accuracy, or reliability, or any disclosure by you of information in Your Content that makes you personally identifiable. You represent that you own, or have the necessary permissions to use and authorize the use of Your Content as described herein.
