Access and Use of the Service
Description of the Service:
Photo Sharing through Event Albums: The Service permits users to share photographs taken with their mobile devices in real-time with friends, family or fellow event participants by creating or contributing to photo events (“Events”) through the Service. To create an Event through the Sharezie App, a user (the “Admin”) specifies a time window and a name for the Event and either (a) selects which contacts to invite to view and/or contribute to the Event (“Invited Contacts”) or (b) sets up a code for the Event that recipients may enter into the Sharezie App to view and contribute to the Event. If you are an Invited Contact or other viewer of or contributor to a Event (a “Event participant”), please note that the Admin may modify your ability to view and/or contribute to the Event through the Service at any time.
Each Invited Contact will receive a text message that the Admin has shared an Event with the Invited Contact. An Invited Contact will be able to view the photos uploaded to the Event by the Admin and any other Event contributor(s) through the Service by opening and viewing the Event through the Sharezie App or clicking on the link to the Event in the text message. An Invited Contact selected by the Admin to contribute to the Event will by default automatically opt in through the Sharezie App to contribute photos taken during the applicable time window with the Invited Contact’s mobile device to the Event.
Recipients of codes to Events will be able to view and contribute to the photos in an Event by entering the Event code into the Sharezie App and opting in to join the Event through the Sharezie App.
All photos taken during an Event with the mobile device of the User, an Invited Contact or other Event participant who has agreed through the Sharezie App to become an Event contributor will be automatically uploaded from the user’s mobile device to the Event. If an Invited Contact whom the Admin selects to contribute to the Event or other Event participant does not wish to contribute to the Event for all or any portion of the Event time window, the Invited Contact or other Event participant may choose to opt out as a contributor at any time by becoming entering into “Specator Mode” or “Leaving” the Event. An Invited Contact or other Event participant may also remove any photos that the Invited Contact or the Event participant contributes to the Event through the Sharezie App. For more information on removing photos from the Service taken with and uploaded to the Service from your mobile device, please see the section titled “Removal of Your Content” below.
Once an Event has ended, photos taken during the Event will be collected in an album and made available to the Admin and Event participants to view on the Service. The Admin and Event participants will be able to save photos from the Event to their own devices and share photos with others by (a) sending photos from the Event in text messages, (b) providing the link to the Event on the Service to others or (c) posting photos from the Event on third-party social media services integrated with the Service. If you use the Service to share photos through Events, you acknowledge and agree that Event participants may save and share your photos in this manner and/or forward links to Event or related albums to others, and that Sharezie is not responsible for how Event participants or others may use or further share photos on the Service or otherwise.
Automatic Photo Uploads: Once a user creates or contributes to an Event through the Sharezie App, the user will be able to opt in to have all future photos taken using the camera on the user’s mobile device automatically uploaded to the Service and organized based on when and where they were taken, the people, places, and other visual information in them and other information provided to us. Users may turn off automatic photo uploads and organization at any time by modifying their account settings in the Sharezie App. If a user selects ‘Spectator Mode’, the user will continue to be able to view photos from Events in the Sharezie App.
