GoFish Cam Mobile App Terms of Service
TERMS OF SERVICE – GOFISH CAM, INC.
Updated Aug. 11/20
The Company is pleased that you, the user (the “User”), are interested in using the Company’s mobile app (the “App”).
Below are the terms and conditions (the “Terms”) which govern your use of the App. The Company enters into a contract with you upon and subject to these Terms when you register to use the App, and the Company hereby is informing you of that fact.
By registering and using the App, you are agreeing to each and every one of these of these Terms, are acknowledging that you have read and understand them and are agreeing to comply with and be bound by them.
If you do NOT so agree, then you must discontinue your use of the App.
- By using the App, User represents to the Company and acknowledges that User is at least 13 years of age. If user had not reached the age of majority in User’s state/Province, User’s parent or legal guardian acknowledges that, on behalf of User and personally, he/she is permitting User to open an account on the App, to use the App and to undertake each and every action which the minor User undertakes in relation to the App. User represents that User is not a person who is barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction, that is to say, that User does not appear on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or face any other similar prohibition. Finally, User agrees that User has read, understands in full and will comply with these Terms and will comply with all applicable local, state, Provincial, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations.
- By submitting and uploading one or more videos to the App, User (or, if the User is a minor in his/her State/Province/territory, his/her parent or legal guardian on behalf of such Minor) thereby grants the Company the right in its sole discretion, but not the obligation, to copy, edit, use, sell, assign or otherwise transfer in any manner the video(s), in whole or part, along with the User’s name, and likeness and any statements made by or attributed to the User, to any person, firm or corporation and in any and all media (including the Internet), now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity and throughout the universe, for any purpose the Company in its sole discretion may determine, all without further notice, review, approval or compensation, and releases the Company and every director, officer, employee, agent, manager and user of the Company and the App from any and all liability with respect thereto. In addition, User grants the Company a licence to create derivative works from, promote, exhibit, broadcast, syndicate, sublicense, publicly perform, and publicly display content User submits and uploads to the App, for any purpose the Company in its sole discretion may determine, all without further notice, review, approval or compensation, and releases the Company and every director, officer, employee, agent, manager and user of the Company and the App from any and all liability with respect thereto.
- If User is using the App on behalf of a business, User represents to the Company that User is authorized to grant all the licences set out in these Terms and has the power to, and does agree to these Terms on behalf of that business.
- The Company grants to User the right to use the App pursuant to these Terms. User understands and agrees that any software the Company provides on the App is provided in the Company’s sole discretion and the Company may alter, eliminate, supplement, upgrade and change, in the Company’s sole discretion, and feature(s) of that software. The Company in its sole discretion may suspend or stop the App’s operations at any time and without prior notice to User. User may not copy, modify, sell, in any manner transfer or distribute any part of the App or its software and User may not reverse engineer the software, in whole or part or try to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit these restrictions or User has the Company’s written permission to do so, which permission the Company may withhold in its sole discretion.
- The Company has the right to terminate or modify or add to these Terms at any time in its sole discretion without notice to User. The Company in its discretion may stop providing service to User or impose further limits and conditions on User in relation to use of the App. The Company may deactivate User’s account due to prolonged inactivity. User may terminate User’s use of the App at any time and for any reason by deleting User’s account. Irrespective whether the Company terminates these Terms or the User terminates User’s use of the App, both User and the Company will continue to be bound by the provisions of paragraphs 2, 4, 5, 6, 8-11 and 14-21 of these Terms.
- User understands and agrees that while the Company is not obliged to do so, it may access, review, screen, and delete User’s content at any time and for any reason, including if the Company believes in its sole judgment that the content violates these Terms. User alone is responsible for the content User creates, uploads, posts, sends, or stores in or using the App. If User has suggestions for the Company, User agrees that the Company may use any such suggestion, in whole or part, without any compensation to User.
- GoFish Cam Profile is our data-storage service that helps you to reminisce. By agreeing to these Terms, User automatically enables GoFish Cam Profile. Once enabled, GoFish Cam Profile will remain enabled for as long as User maintains User’s App account but User can always turn off certain GoFish Cam Profile features through Settings. User’s content in GoFish Cam Profile might become unavailable for any number of reasons, including without limitation, an operational glitch or a decision by the Company to terminate User’s account. The Company recommends that User keep a separate copy of the content saved to GoFish Cam Profile. Note that GoFish Cam Profile may not be able to accommodate User’s storage needs, and the Company has the right to set storage limits for GoFish Cam Profile and to change these limits from time to time in the Company’s discretion. As is the case generally with the App, User’s use of GoFish Cam Profile may take up space on User’s device and may incur mobile data charges. User may not resell or otherwise transfer any GoFish Cam Profile features such as using GoFish Cam Profile to operate User’s own file-storage or distribution service for other people.
- User must not use the App or the content on the App in any way which is not permitted by these Terms. For example, User Services or the content on the Services in ways that are not authorized by these Terms. User is not permitted to assist any other person in doing that. User may not use the App in a manner such as to infringe upon someone else’s rights of publicity, privacy, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual-property right, bullies, harasses, or intimidates, defames, spams or solicits other users of the App. User also agrees not to use any intellectual property [trademarks, copyrighted material] which does not belong to User and not to copy, archive, download, upload, distribute, syndicate, broadcast, perform, display, make available, or otherwise use any portion of the App or the content on the App except as set forth in these Terms, including any commercial use of the App, the App’s content or the App’s tools without the Company’s express written consent, which the Company may withhold in its absolute discretion.
- The Company respects the copyrights of others.
If a User is a copyright owner or an agent thereof and have a good faith belief that any Third Party Submission or other content on the App infringes User’s copyright(s), User may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing the Company’s designated copyright agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):

Counter-Notice to a Notice to the Company of Alleged Copyright Infringement
If a user believes that the user’s Third Party Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing any copyright, or that the user has the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in user’s Third Party Submission, the user may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Company’s Copyright Agent:
- The user’s physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that the user has a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
