Terms of Service
Last modified: May 14, 2012
Thank you for using our products and services (hereinafter referred to as “SERVICES”). The Services are provided by India Parenting Pvt. Ltd. & all of its current & future allied ventures within it (hereinafter jointly referred to as “IPGROUP")
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
Using our Services
You are required to follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Attempting to access our Services using methods other than the provisioned interface are strictly prohibited. You may use our Services only as permitted by law. We reserve the right to suspend or cease our Services to you in case of non-compliance with the abovementioned.
By using our Services, you agree that you will not have the right to ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content accessed by you. Content from our Services may not be used unless you obtain authorization from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. You are not permitted to use any branding or logos associated with or used in our Services.
Some content displayed by our Services may not belong to the IP Group. This content is solely the responsibility of the entity that makes it available. The IP Group may assess content to determine whether it violates our policies, is illegal and expressly reserve our rights to remove or refuse to accept and/or publish content that we believe to be non-compliant with our policies and/or the law. The IP Group does not assess all content.
Pertaining to your use of our Services, we may send you announcements, administrative messages and other information. You may opt out of these communications should you wish to.
You may need an Account in order to access some of our Services. You may create your own Account, or your Account may be assigned to you by us. In the case of the latter, the administrator may be able to access or disable your Account.
Privacy and Copyright Protection
Your Content in our Services
You own all of the content and information submitted by you on IPGROUP Services.
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 our products (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.
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).
When you use an application, your content and information is shared with the application. 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.
When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people outside of IPGROUP Services, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e. your name and profile picture).
We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about IPGROUP Services, 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).
IPGROUP is not liable for loss of any data caused by unforeseen circumstances.
Should you wish to move your data from IPGROUP, we are not liable to provide this data to you in any format.

You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.

About these Terms
We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the terms regularly. Where required, we will post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We will post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective as soon as they are posted, particularly those made for legal reasons. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between IPGROUP and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we do not take immediate action, it does not imply that we are giving up our rights including but not limited to taking action in the future.
If any one term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
