BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, AND CALL.ME’S PRIVACY POLICY, WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT https://www.call.me/legal/privacy-policy/.

2. Call.Me Service

These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Call.Me Service. Information provided by our users through the Call.Me Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by Call.Me. Call.Me has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites. In addition, Call.Me will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site. By using the Service, you expressly acknowledge and agree that Call.Me shall not be responsible for any damages, claims or other liability arising from or related to your use of any third-party website.

 

3. Call.Me Access

  1. Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, Call.Me hereby grants you permission to use the Service, provided that: (i) your use of the Service as permitted is solely for your personal use, and you are not permitted to resell or charge others for use of or access to the Service, or in any other manner inconsistent with these Terms of Service; (ii) you will not duplicate, transfer, give access to, copy or distribute any part of the Service in any medium without Call.Me’s prior written authorization; (iii) you will not attempt to reverse engineer, alter or modify any part of the Service; and (iv) you will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.
  2. In order to access and use the features of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you will have to provide Call.Me with your email address and mobile phone number. You expressly acknowledge and agree that in order to provide the Service, Call.Me may periodically access your contact list and/or address book on your mobile device to find and keep track of mobile phone numbers of other users of the Service. When providing your mobile phone number, you must provide accurate and complete information. You hereby give your express consent to Call.Me to access your contact list and/or address book for mobile phone numbers in order to provide and use the Service. We do not collect names, addresses, just mobile phone numbers and email addresses. You must notify Call.Me immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your mobile phone and/or email account. Although Call.Me will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of Call.Me or others due to such unauthorized use.
  3. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc. or “load testers” such as wget, apache bench, mswebstress, httpload, blitz, Xcode Automator, Android Monkey, etc., that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the Call.Me servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a Call.Me application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Call.Me grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Call.Me reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. While we don’t disallow the use of sniffers such as Ethereal, tcpdump or HTTPWatch in general, we do disallow any efforts to reverse-engineer our system, our protocols, or explore outside the boundaries of the normal requests made by Call.Me clients. We have to disallow using request modification tools such as fiddler or whisker, or the like or any other such tools activities that are meant to explore or harm, penetrate or test the site. You must secure our permission before you measure, test, health check or otherwise monitor any network equipment, servers or assets hosted on our domain. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including phone number, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service for any commercial solicitation or spam purposes. You agree not to spam, or solicit for commercial purposes, any users of the Service.

 

4. Intellectual Property Rights

The design of the Call.Me Service along with Call.Me created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, except Status Submissions (as defined below), and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein (“Marks”), are owned by or licensed to Call.Me, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Slovak Republic and foreign laws and international conventions. The Service is provided to you AS IS for your information and personal use only. Call.Me reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Service other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of Status Submissions of third parties obtained through the Service for any commercial purposes.

 

5. User Status Submissions

  1. The Call.Me Service allows Call.Me users to submit status text, profile photos and other communications submitted by you, as well as the automatic submission of your “last seen” status (collectively, the “Status Submissions”). These Status Submissions may be hosted, shared, and/or published as part of the Call.Me Service, and may be visible to other users of the Service that are connected to you – are in your contact list. For clarity, direct messages, audio, video, photos or files that you send directly to other Call.Me users will only be viewable by those Call.Me user(s) or group(s) you directly send such information; but Status Submissions may be globally viewed by Call.Me users that are connected to you. Currently, we have no method of providing different levels of visibility of your Status Submissions among users connected to you – you acknowledge and agree that any Status Submissions may be globally viewed by users that are connected to you, so don’t submit or post status messages or profile photos that you don’t want to be seen globally. The submission of your ‘last seen’ status is done on an automatic basis. As clarified in the following section, you retain your ownership rights in your Status Submissions. You understand that whether or not such Status Submissions are published, Call.Me does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
  2. You shall be solely responsible for your own Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because Call.Me is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of Call.Me, and Call.Me makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Call.Me to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service. To be clear: you retain all of your ownership rights in your Status Submissions, but you have to have the rights in the first place. However, by submitting the Status Submissions to Call.Me, you hereby grant Call.Me a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Status Submissions in connection with the Call.Me Service and Call.Me’s (and its successor’s) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Call.Me Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status on the Call.Me Service a non-exclusive license to access your Status Submissions through the Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a Status Submission from the Call.Me Service.
  3. In connection with Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Call.Me all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Call.Me or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (v) impersonate another person; (vi) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vii) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (viii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
  4. Adult content must be identified as such. Call.Me does not endorse any Status Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Call.Me expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Status Submissions. Call.Me does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights via its Service. Call.Me reserves the right to remove content and Status Submissions without prior notice. Call.Me may also terminate a user’s access to the Service, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a Status Submission removed from the Service more than twice. Call.Me also reserves the right to decide whether content or a Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. Call.Me may remove such Status Submissions and/or terminate a User’s access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.

 

  1. Call.Me permits you to link to materials on the Service for personal purposes only. Call.Me reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the Call.Me Service at any time.

The Service is controlled and offered by Call.Me from its facilities in the Slovak Republic. Call.Me makes no representations that the Call.Me Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Call.Me Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.

 

8. Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Call.Me, its parent corporation, officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Call.Me Service; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that one of your Status Submissions caused damage to a third party.

These Terms of Service shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the Slovak Republic, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.

These Terms of Service, together with the Privacy Policy at https://www.call.me/legal/privacy-policy/ and any other legal notices published by Call.Me, including, but not limited to an end user license agreement, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Call.Me concerning the Call.Me Service. If any provision of these Terms of Service is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Call.Me’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If you do not agree to the revised Terms, your only recourse is to discontinue the use of the Call.Me Service.

Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
