5.1 Your Use of the Spota App

The following terms apply to your use of the Spota Apps, including when accessed through or downloaded from any app store or app distribution platform (e.g., the Clover App Market, Apple iTunes and Google Play) any such app store or app distribution platform is referred to below as an “App Provider”.

      • The Terms are concluded between you and Spota, and not with the App Provider. We are responsible for the Spota Apps (not the App Provider).
      • The App Provider has no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Spota Apps.
      • The App Provider will have no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Spota Apps.
      • The App Provider, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of the Terms only as related to your use of the Spota Apps via the app store or app distribution platform and, upon your acceptance of the Terms, the App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms (as related to your use of the Spota Apps via the app store or app distribution platform) against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.

“Post” or “post” means text and/or photos and/or sound and/or video and/or other media that you send to your social network (e.g post to Facebook, post to Instagram, send out on SnapChat, Tweet on Twitter, etc). It is the total on the Content you have created within the Spota App that have then decided to Post to the social networks that you have selected within the Spota App.

The Spota App makes it very clear to you what is going to be posted, before you confirm to post (that is, to send to a social network of your choice). The Spota App may add watermarks over photos but this will be clear and obvious to you, within the App, before you confirm your post.

Spota cannot be held responsible for what other social networks do with your post once it has been sent from the Spota App (i.e. If Facebook wish to add something to the post, then that is up to Facebook and Spota is not responsible).

You should always check your post to the network(s) you have posted to from the Spota App, directly with that social network itself after every time you have posted from the Spota App, to ensure you are happy the post appeared as you intended. You assume responsibility for checking this.

You are in control of your posts and Spota encourages you to post positive comments only. You assume total responsibility for your post, and any outcomes that may arise from this post. For example, if you post a comment that a business and/or person is unhappy with and that business and/or person takes legal action (in any form whatsoever) then you are responsible for this and Spota assumes no responsibility whatsoever. It is your Post, your content and therefore your responsibility.

Spota is about sharing your experience with friends and family. As such we reserve the right to remove claim submissions which do not adhere to our editorial guidelines (eg junk photos, screenshots and other content that does not accurately portray your experience of a service). Spota and it’s partners may also remove claim submissions where it feels you are obviously and immediately deleting the post after you have claimed the deal. Spota’s judgement in this regard is final.
