The License you grant to Swapp

In order to enable Swapp to operate the Service, we must obtain from you certain limited license rights to process your Content so that technical actions we take in operating the Service are not considered legal violations. For example, copyright laws could prevent us from processing, maintaining, storing, backing-up and distributing your Content, unless you give us these rights. Accordingly, by using the Service and uploading Content, you are granting Swapp a license to display, perform and distribute your Content and to modify (for technical purposes, e.g., making sure content is viewable on smart phones as well as computers and other devices) and reproduce such Content to enable Swapp to operate the Service. You also agree that Swapp has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.

 

You agree that these rights and licenses are royalty free, worldwide and irrevocable (for so long as your Content is stored with us), and include a right for Swapp to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom Swapp has contractual relationships related to the provision of the Swapp Service, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to or disclose your Content to third parties if Swapp determines such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations.

 

If you elect to use any third party service or application that is integrated with Swapp, you also agree that the licenses granted to Swapp in the preceding paragraph shall apply to Content that is submitted or uploaded through such third party service or application. If the third party service or application you elect to use would access or extract Content, you grant Swapp the right and license to enable third party access to and extraction of your Content. Swapp does not assume any responsibility for, or liability on account of, the actions or omissions of such third party applications or service providers.

This applies whether the Content is kept private, shared or transmitted using the Service or any third party application or services integrated with the Swapp Service.
