Foundbite is an online community that allows users to share and explore the sights and sounds of the world, as well as being able to view what other people have uploaded nearby or on the other side of the world.

Foundbite allows you to post Content. You retain all rights, and are solely responsible for, the Content you post on Foundbite.

To make a long story short: all content you post to Foundbite is still yours.

other users and your content

You grant Foundbite and its users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, share, modify, create derivative works, perform and distribute your Content on Foundbite solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing and using the Foundbite Service. We reserve the right to remove or modify Content at any time, including Content we find to violate our policies and these Terms.

The licence granted to Foundbite includes the right to use your Content fully or partially for promotional reasons and distribute your Content to other parties, web sites, applications and other entities, provided such Content is attributed to you.

In summary: By using Foundbite you're allowing your fellow users to share your content and giving us permission to use it within the service and to promote the app to others. We won't sell your content.

storage of your content

If you choose to remove Content from Foundbite or if your account is deactivated or terminated we may retain your Content for the purposes of backup or archival. Foundbite and its users may continue to retain and continue to use, store, display, preform and distribute your Content that has been shared through Foundbite.

Simply: Copies of content may remain after you have deleted them, but we'll try to remove them as soon as we can.

your feedback

We love to hear from users and are always open to suggestions as to how we can make Foundbite utterly amazing. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or competition from you. By accepting your submission, Foundbite does not waive the right to use other feedback or ideas known to us previously.

Straight up: You can't give us ideas on how to improve Foundbite then charge us for them.

user conduct

All content submitted to the Service is the sole responsibility of the account holder from which such Content originates. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Foundbite, are entirely responsible for content you post or otherwise submit to the Service.

Foundbite does not control user content and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. Foundbite takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Content that you or any other user or third party posts or transmits using our Service. By using the site you understand that you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.

As conditions of use, you promise not to post Content to the service that is unlawfully or contrary to these Terms, or any other purpose not reasonably intended by Foundbite. As an example, but not as an exhaustive list, you should not use Foundbite to:

  • Abuse, threaten, impersonate or intimidate another person.
  • Post any Content that is libellous, defamatory, pornographic, abusive, offensive, obscene or that infringes any copyrights or right of another person.
  • For any reason use these services contrary to the laws of the jurisdiction you are in.
  • To create or submit unwanted "spam".
  • To post copyrighted content that doesn't belong to you.
  • To promote or sell the content of another person.
Essentially: If you act like a nice human being and not like an idiot you'll be fine.

copyright

We take copyright very seriously and respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to address and respond rapidly to any concern that Content posted on the site infringes the copyright or intellectual property of any person ("Infringement"). When we believe an Infringement has taken place we'll take appropriate action under the relevant intellectual property laws and these Terms, including removing or disabling access to the infringing Content and/or terminating user accounts.

To notify us of any potential copyright issues please send the details of the alleged infringement to hello@foundbite.co.

In brief: We respect copyrights, you should follow suit.

security

We care greatly about security and while we work hard to protect the security of our users and content we can't guarantee unauthorised third parties will be able to defeat our security measures. If you suspect a breach has occurred please notify us immediately.

Simply: you can help us keep Foundbite secure - having a strong password always helps!

termination

Foundbite may terminate or suspend the licence or any time, with or without cause or notice to you.

To the point: We have the right to refuse service to anyone.

limitation of liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Foundbite entities shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, or any loss of profits of revenues, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any loss of data, use, good-will, or other intangible losses, resulting from (i) your access to or use of or inability to access or use the services; (ii) any conduct or content of any third party on the services, including without limitation, any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of other users or third parties; (iii) any content obtained from the services; or (iv) unauthorised access, use or alteration of your transmissions or content.

In no event shall the aggregate liability of Foundbite exceed the greater of one hundred pounds sterling (GBP £100.00) or the amount you paid Foundbite, if any in the past six months for the services giving rise to the claim.

In a nutshell: We're doing all we can to make Foundbite awesome, however things can go wrong. We're not liable for various things but please contact us if you think we are and we'll talk.
