Statement of Rights and Responsibilities:

This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (“Statement,” “Terms,” or “SRR”) is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with Clubface. By using or accessing Clubface, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 14 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that help you understand how Clubface works.

 

I. Privacy – Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Data Use Policy to make important disclosures about how you can use Clubface to share with others and how we collect and can use your content and information.  We encourage you to read the Data Use Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.

II. Sharing Your Content and Information –

 

You own all of the content and information you post on Clubface, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:

 

I. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Clubface (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

 

II. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).

 

III. When you use an application, the application may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you.  We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information.

 

IV. When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Clubface, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).

 

V. We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Clubface, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

Clubface Advertising Guidelines

Advertising Philosophy

 

At Clubface, we believe that ads should contribute to and be consistent with the overall user experience. The best ads are those that are tailored to individuals based on how they and their friends interact and affiliate with the brands, artists, and businesses they care about. These guidelines are not intended to serve as legal advice and adherence to these guidelines does not necessarily constitute legal compliance. Advertisers are responsible for ensuring that their ads comply with all applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.

 

1. General

i. Our Advertising Guidelines consist of advertising content criteria, community standards, and other applicable requirements.

 

ii. The Ad Guidelines, as well as our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, apply to all ads and commercial content (“ads”) served by or appearing on Clubface (including ads purchased under AAAA/IAB Standard Terms and Conditions).
