Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities ("Statement," "Terms," or "SRR") derives from the All Virtual Social Principles, and is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with All Virtual Social, as well as All Virtual Social brands, products and services, which we call the "All Virtual Social Services" or "Services". By using or accessing the All Virtual Social Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 13 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that helps you understand how All Virtual Social works.

Because All Virtual Social provides a wide range of Services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product or service. To the extent that those supplemental terms conflict with this SRR, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.

  1. 1. Privacy

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

  2. 2. Sharing your content and information

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

    1. 1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, such as 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 licence to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with All Virtual Social (IP Licence). This IP Licence ends when you delete your IP content or your account, unless your content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.

    2. 2. 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).

    3. 3. 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. (To learn more about Platform, including how you can control what information other people may share with applications, read our Data Policy and Platform page.)

    4. 4. When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people not on All Virtual Social, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e. your name and profile picture).

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