We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we'll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications. It's important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site, you are agreeing to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don't agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you can't use the Services anymore.
You may use our services only if you can form a binding contract with MooChat, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, your legal guardian has reviewed and agrees to these Terms. If you use MooChat on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) "you" includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are authorized to grant all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms and bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity's behalf. Some of our Products may be software that is downloaded to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically upgrade those Products, and these Terms will apply to such upgrades.
Subject to these Terms and our policies, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Products. MooChat may terminate or suspend this license at any time, with or without cause or notice to you.
You are responsible for any information, opinions, messages, comments, photos, videos, graphics, sounds and other content or material that you submit, upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available on or through the Services (each a “Submission”) and through the Services available in connection with the Services. We reserve the right to retain your Submissions, even after they have expired from view within the App or even after you have deleted them. However, you agree that we have no obligation to retain any Submission for any period of time, nor shall we be responsible or liable to you or any third party for any lost content or losses related to the expiration or deletion of a Submission.
If you operate a group, post material to one, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Service (any such material, "Content"), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. By using the Service, you assume responsibility for your use of the Service and agree not to use it in ways not explicitly authorized by MooChat. You represent and warrant that you own and control all of the rights to the Content that you share using the Service, or you otherwise have the right to post or share the Content on the Service; and represent and warrant that the use and posting of the Content you supply does not violate the Terms, will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity, and will not otherwise create any harm or liability of any type for us or for third parties.
Using our services means that you will: comply with all applicable laws and regulations; not infringe on the intellectual property or privacy of others; only share Content that is not pornographic, libelous or defamatory, does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party; fully comply with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have completed all acts necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms; ensure that the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content; ensure that the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain commercial content; ensure that the Content is not being sent in connection with any unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing); comply strictly with any carrier agreements and terms associated with your mobile device; and not attempt to disrupt the Service.
By using MooChat and submitting Content to a group, you grant us a world-wide, royalty-free, perpetual, fully sub-licenseable and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content in connection with the Service. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, MooChat has the right (though not the obligation) to, in its sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in MooChat's opinion, violates any MooChat policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Service to any individual or entity for any reason, in MooChat's sole discretion. (iii) remove you from and deny access to any chat group. This may include modifying or stopping the Service in its entirety.
You understand that by using any of the Services, You may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language, and that the results of any search or entering of a particular URL may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Nevertheless, You agree to use the Services at Your sole risk and that the Application Provider shall not have any liability to You for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
Certain Services may display, include or make available content, data, information, applications or materials from third parties (“Third Party Materials”) or provide links to certain third party web sites.

Neither the Application Provider, nor any of its content providers, guarantees the availability, accuracy, completeness, reliability, or timeliness of stock information or location data displayed by any Services.
You agree that any Services contain proprietary content, information and material that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright, and that You will not use such proprietary content, information or materials in any way whatsoever except for permitted use of the Services. No portion of the Services may be reproduced in any form or by any means.

Consent to Use of Data: You agree that Application Provider may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to technical information about Your device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to You (if any) related to the Licensed Application. Application Provider may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify You, to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to You.
Consent to receive periodic messages from MooChat. As part of the Service, MooChat sometimes causes administrative messages to be sent to members of the group. For example, upon a new member joining to a group, MooChat informs group members about the new member.
We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your content and account, MooChat cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security measures. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account.

THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION ON CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
