To create an account on the Service and use it, the User must be at least 16 years old. By creating an account, the User certifies and guarantees that the User:
The User is responsible for keeping the login credentials used to access the Service confidential and is solely responsible for all activities that occur under those access credentials. If the User suspects that an unauthorized/unwanted party has gained access to their account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
Connus reserves the right to introduce new products, features, and enhancements to the Service, as well as to remove existing features. In the event that these modifications do not have a direct impact on the User’s rights or obligations, Connus may implement them without prior notification. Connus retains the right to modify specific features within the Service. The User has the option to terminate their account at any time for any reason by following the instructions provided in the Service. However, any purchases made through the User’s mobile device platform (e.g. App store, Google Play) must be managed by the User to prevent additional billing. If the User breaches the Agreement, Connus reserves the right to terminate their account at any time without prior notice, and no refunds will be issued upon termination. Following deactivation of the account, the Agreement will cease to apply, except for the provisions outlined in Section 4, Section 5, and Sections 12 through 17, which will continue to apply to both the User and Connus.
Connus aims to promote a respectful user experience through features for example ‘double opt-in’, which allows users to communicate only if they both express interest in each other. However, Connus is not responsible for the behavior of Users on or off the Service. Users must exercise caution in all interactions with other Users, especially when communicating outside of the Service or meeting someone in person. Users must not share financial information (such as credit card or bank account information) or transfer/send money to other users unless there is a valid VAT number and an agreement to work together. Users are solely responsible for their interactions with other users. Connus cannot conduct criminal background checks on users or investigate their backgrounds. Connus has the right to conduct background investigations if deemed necessary.
Connus grants the User a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use the Service worldwide. This license is for the sole purpose of allowing the User to use the Service as intended by Connus and as permitted under this Agreement. Therefore, the User agrees not to:
By creating an account, the User grants Connus a worldwide, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, right and license to host, store, use, copy, display, reproduce, adapt, edit, publish, modify and distribute any information the User has given Connus or authorizes Connus to view through Facebook and/or Instagram or other social media platforms, as well as any information the User posts, uploads, displays or otherwise makes available (collectively, “Post”) through the Service or sends to other Users (collectively, “Content”). Connus’ right to use the Content is non-exclusive, except for derivative works created by use of the Service. For example, Connus would have an exclusive right to screenshots of the Service that contains the Content. In addition, the User authorizes Connus to act on its behalf regarding infringement of use of its content by other Users or third parties. This allows Connus to prevent the Content from being used outside of the Service. Connus’ right to use the Content is subject to the User’s rights under applicable laws (e.g. laws governing the protection of personal data to the extent that the Content contains personal data as defined by those laws) and is intended for the purpose of servicing and operating, developing, providing, and improving the Service and researching and developing new features. The User agrees that the Content posted or authorized for Connus to post may be viewed by other Users and may be viewed by persons visiting or using the Service (such as persons receiving shared content from other Connus Users). The User agrees that all information provided when creating its account, including information derived from its social media accounts, is accurate and truthful. The User has the right to post relevant content on the Service and grants the right to Connus as described above. The User understands and agrees that Connus may monitor or review the Content the User posts. Connus may remove any Content, in whole or in part, that in its sole discretion violates this Agreement or may damage Connus’ reputation. The User agrees to be respectful and friendly when communicating with Connus’ customer service representatives. If Connus believes that the User’s behavior toward its customer service
representatives or other employees is threatening or abusive at any time, Connus reserves the right to terminate the User’s account immediately. As compensation for using Connus, the User agrees that Connus, its subsidiaries and third party partners, may place advertising on the Service. By submitting suggestions or providing feedback to Connus regarding the Service, the User agrees that Connus may use and share such feedback for any purpose without compensation. The User agrees that Connus may access, retain and disclose its account information and content if required to do so by law or when it is sincerely believed that such access, retention or disclosure is reasonably necessary, such as: (i) to comply with legal process; (ii) for compliance with this Agreement; (iii) to respond to claims that Content violates the rights of other users or third parties; (iv) to respond to the User’s requests for customer support; or (v) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Connus, the Company or another person.
By using the Service, the User agrees that it:
Connus reserves the right to investigate and/or terminate the User’s account, without refund of any transaction, if it has violated this Agreement, misused the Service or behaved in a manner Connus considers inappropriate or illegal, including actions or communications occurring on or off the Service.
While Connus retains the right to review, evaluate and remove content that violates this agreement, the User who posts such content is solely accountable for it, and Connus cannot guarantee that all Content will comply with this Agreement. In the case the User comes across any Content on Connus that violates this Agreement, kindly report it within the Service or at email@example.com.
Connus provides two options for Users who wish to utilize the Service to its fullest.
Connus offers services through the App store, Google Play or other platforms authorized by Connus (each, a “Software Store”) or a webplatform. If the User chooses to make a transaction, the User’s account info will be used in order to send an official invoice of this transaction via e-mail. All prices communicated through Connus are excl VAT. The VAT will be visible on the invoice send by
email. Connus has the right to change the prices at any time. Every invoice must be paid immediately starting from the date of the invoice.
Additionally, the user can collaborate with Connus for an influencer marketing campaign, and the details of this campaign can vary for each user. If the User wants to work with Connus for this kind of service, the User’s account info will be used in order to send an official invoice of this transaction via e-mail. All prices communicated through Connus are excl VAT. The VAT will be visible on the invoice send by email. Every invoice must be paid within 14 days starting from the invoice date.
In the case of non-payment, Connus reserves the right to increase the invoice amount, without notice to the user, with an interest of 30% per month from the due date and a damages clause of 40% with a minimum of 500 euro. If the User chooses to make a transaction through the Service, the User agrees to pay Connus all invoices for the agreed prices for the Service it has selected, as well as any sales or similar taxes that may apply to these payments. Connus may correct billing errors or errors made when payment requests have already been made or payment has been received. If the User initiates a refund or otherwise reverses a payment made through its payment method, Connus may terminate the User’s account immediately. Generally, no refunds are available and no refunds or reimbursements will be made.
Connus only provides the ability to filter and start a conversation with relevant users. Connus is not responsible when a collaboration between Users is not established in the end or when a collaboration does not end well between Users. Users itself are solely responsible for the development of a collaboration. If a User has paid to have a conversation with another User but the collaboration is not established, Connus can not be held responsible.
If the User believes that its work has been copied and posted on the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with the following information:
Notices of copyright infringement should be sent to the Company’s Copyright Agent by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Connus will terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.
