The personal data entered by the user in the App registration form must be true and complete.

a) Unauthenticated Users: they will only have the opportunity to access the App and to search for content and view videos on the App.
b) Authenticated Users: in addition to what is provided for non-authenticated Users, they will have the opportunity to comment and “like” the videos on the App, actively participate in the so-called “Live Battles ” present on the App, follow the Users who fall into the category “influencers“, save their videos and send them private messages.

The contents of the App (excluding the User Contents referred to in point 5 below), such as, by way of example, works, images, photographs, music, sounds and videos, slogans, documents, drawings, figures, texts, logos, trademarks and any other material in any format published on the App, including menus, web pages, the graphics, colors, patterns, tools, fonts and design of the App, the diagrams, layouts, and software that are part of the App, and any element protected by copyright and any other intellectual property right, are the exclusive property of the Company and/or its assignees (hereinafter the Content). Reproduction, in whole or in part, in any form whatsoever, of the App and the Content is prohibited without the express written consent of the Company. The User is therefore only authorized to view the App and the Content and to perform all other acts (including the use of the Services) of temporary, personal and uneconomic use, which are an incidental, an integral and an essential part of the same viewing the App and the Content and all other navigation operations on the App that are performed only for a legitimate use of the App and the Content.
By accepting the Conditions of Use, the User authorizes the Company to publish the User Content that will be provided by the User from time to time, by uploading them to the App.
The User grants the Company a non-exclusive, unlimited, unconditional, sublicensable and transferable license, valid in all countries of the world to the maximum extent possible by law, to reproduce, publish, perform, transmit, transfer to other formats (format shifting), communicate to the public, make available to the public, process and/or edit, re-edit, translate, distribute, commercially exploit, and in any case use all or part of the User Content in any form and manner with reference, among other things – but not exclusively – to the relevant copyrights, intellectual property rights, personality (name, image and voice that the User transmits in relation to the User Content). The rights provided therein are independent of each other, and the exercise of one does not exclude the exercise of the other rights. It is understood that there is no obligation on the part of the Company to exercise all or part of the aforementioned rights. By accepting the Conditions of Use, the User acknowledges and in any case agrees that no compensation or remuneration other or additional to the rights to use the Services and the Content provided under these Conditions of Use is provided for.
The User represents, warrants and undertakes to the Company and its assignees (i) that the User Content entered on the App is original and that he/she is the owner of the relevant copyrights, personality rights, as well as any other rights relating thereto; (ii) that nothing entered is, or could be considered to be, obscene, violent, defamatory, blasphemous, gruesome or liable to upset minors or will, in any case, violate the rights of third parties (such as, by way of example and without limitation, moral rights, image rights, honor, decorum and/or reputation and/or confidentiality, industrial and intellectual property rights, personal data protection rights, publication rights or others) or legal provisions; (iii) to have in any case obtained all the necessary consents and releases from all parties having the right and/or responsibility to provide such permissions with regard to the User Contents and their use by the Company, and (iv) that neither the User Contents nor their use will result in the violation of the personal or property rights of third parties and/or of the law, also having regard to any authorizations or permissions by public authorities or self-regulatory or similar bodies.
In the event that the User is not the sole owner of the rights to the User Content, the User is required to acquire all the documentation attesting to the granting to the User of the necessary authorizations by the entitled parties before entering the said User Content on the App (and to make available to the Company upon request by the latter). With particular regard to the publication of videos and images of minors, the User declares that he/she is the owner or in any case has already acquired the necessary written authorization (which the said User undertakes to make available to the Company upon Company’s request) from the parental authority.
The Company does not provide any warranty in relation to or assume any liability against the risks of deterioration and/or piracy with regard to User Content save to the extent resulting from its own negligent or willful misconduct. The backup or saving of User Content is in any case the responsibility of single Users.
Suspension and deletion of User Content and/or user generated content and/or User registration
The Company does not carry out any control and/or monitoring, nor is it obliged to give prior approval to the User Content entered on the App, and cannot therefore be held liable in any way for the User Content, nor for any errors and/or omissions contained therein, as well as for any direct and/or indirect damages suffered or incurred by Users and/or third parties from their publication on the App. Should, however, the Company become aware of the presence of User Content in violation, even suspected, of these Conditions of Use and/or should the User Content entered on the App be deemed unlawful or inappropriate in the Company sole discretion, the Company may suspend and/or delete all or part of such User Content, the Services and/or the User registration, or permanently prevent the User from using the Services of the App.
In the event that the Company receives a report from a third party that refers to an alleged violation of rights (such as, by way of example and without limitation, industrial and intellectual property rights and/or personality rights) by one or more User Content, the Company reserves the right to promptly suspend and/or delete such User Content and/or the Services and/or the registration of the relevant Users. Alternatively, the Company may, at its sole discretion, send the User concerned an e-mail notifying him/her of the notification, requesting that within 3 (three) days from the sending of the same the User remove the User Content reported, or provide adequate proof of the lawfulness of his/her use of the User Content reported and in any case of his/her rights thereto. Once this period has elapsed, the Company shall be entitled to suspend and/or delete the User Content or the Service and/or the User registration without delay, and to permanently exclude the User from using the Services.

The Company cannot guarantee its users that the App and the Services will operate continuously, without interruption and in the absence of errors or malfunctions due to the connection to the Internet. The Company will make reasonable efforts to ensure continuous access to its App and the Services even though the dynamic nature of the Internet and its content may not allow the App to operate without suspensions, interruptions or discontinuity due to the need to update the App.
Nothing in these Conditions of Use shall exclude or restrict the liability of either party to the other for death or personal injury resulting from negligence or for fraudulent misrepresentation or in any other circumstances where liability may not be so limited under any applicable law.
Links to other websites
The App may contain hyperlinks (the “links“) to other websites that have no connection with the App or the Company.
