Please read these Terms of Service ("Terms", "Terms of Service") before using Artworld (“Service”). Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms, and constitutes a legal contract between Artworld (referred to herein as “we,” “us,” and “our”), and the user of the Service (“you”). By accessing or using the Service you are demonstrating your agreement to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the Terms then you do not have permission to access or use the Service. Unless otherwise defined in our Terms of Service, the terms used here have the same meanings as defined in our Privacy Policy. All information we obtain in connection with your use of the Service will be treated according to the provisions of our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated as part of these Terms. Your use of the Service indicates your acknowledgement and acceptance that your information will be governed by such Policy.

1. Artworld v.1 Disclaimer

THE SERVICE IS BELIEVED LIKELY TO CONTAIN AS-YET UNDISCOVERED BUGS AND DEFECTS, THAT COULD RESULT IN A CRASH. THE SERVICE SUGGESTS FOR USERS TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICE. YOU ARE ADVISED TO SAFEGUARD IMPORTANT DATA, TO USE CAUTION AND NOT RELY IN ANY WAY ON THE CORRECT FUNCTIONING OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICE AND/OR ACCOMPANYING MATERIALS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL RISKS FOR ACCESSING AND USING THE SERVICE, AND THAT THE SERVICE IS BEING PROVIDED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR ASSURANCE WHATSOEVER CONCERNING ITS RELIABILITY, STABILITY OR PERFORMANCE, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. IF YOU ARE UNWILLING TO ACCEPT THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH USING THE SERVICE, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE SERVICE AT THIS EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT.

2. Rights to Use the Service

By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app. You are not allowed to copy, or modify the app, any part of the app, or any Artworld trademarks. You are not permitted to attempt to extract the source code of the app, translate the app into other languages, or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trademarks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, belong to Artworld.

Artworld is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

Artworld app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, in order to provide our Service. It is your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that Artworld will not work properly.

Subject to these Terms, Artworld hereby grants you a nontransferable, nonexclusive license right to access and use the Service. Except for this license, Artworld retains all rights, title and interests in the Service. This license is subject to the following additional specific conditions:

(i)this license enables you to install and use the Service on one or more computing devices solely for the purpose of providing evaluation testing of the Service with third-party services and software we identify as being compatible with the Service;

(ii)This license, and your rights to access and use the Service, including all Service software provided to you, ends upon the termination of this Agreement;

(iii)the Service is for your personal use only and you shall not sell, lease, transfer or otherwise make the Service available to third parties. We would appreciate you directing any person interested in evaluating the Service to contact us directly at: info@artworld.app

You are prohibited from making any copy of the Service software, or record any images of the Service being used. You agree not to cause or permit the disassembly, reverse compilation or reverse engineering of the Service software, except as otherwise permitted by law notwithstanding this prohibition.

3. Content

Our Service allows you to post, link, store, share and otherwise make available certain information, text, graphics, videos, or other material ("Content"). You are responsible for the Content that you upload and use in the Service, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness. It is also solely at your election to contribute Content.

By posting Content on or through the Service, you represent and warrant that:

(i) the Content is yours (you own it) and/or you have the right to use it and the right to grant us the rights and license as provided in these Terms;
(ii) that the posting of your Content on or through the Service does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person or entity;
(iii) you consent to the sharing of this content with the users of the app. We reserve the right to terminate the account of anyone we believe to be acting in a manner that conflicts with this warranty.

Except for the license right you grant to us in these Terms, you retain any and all of your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Service and you are responsible for protecting those rights. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for Content you post on or through the Service.

By uploading Content into the Service, and as necessary for us to provide the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual license and sub-license, which we may use for promotional and outreach purposes. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of improving the operation and reach of our Services.

You may share Content found on or through the Service for non-commercial purposes, whether in part or in whole, without express advance written permission from us.

15. Exclusions

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of British Columbia, Canada, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. We shall, however, have the right to seek relief in any court of competent jurisdiction in order to protect our proprietary rights in the Service.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Service.

17. Changes

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
