HiTalk offers users with mobile devices calling and messages services transacted through a licensed application for mobile devices. Our Licensed Application is licensed, not sold, to You for use only under the terms of this license, unless a product or service is accompanied by a separate license agreement, in which case the terms of that separate license agreement will govern, subject to Your prior acceptance of that separate license agreement. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to You.
1. Scope of License
This license granted to You for our Licensed Application is limited to a non-transferable license to use the Licensed Application on any mobile device that You own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in our Terms and Conditions (the “Usage Rules”). This license does not allow You to use the Licensed Application on any mobile device that You do not own or control, and You may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple mobile devices at the same time. You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute or sublicense the Licensed Application. You may not copy (except as expressly permitted by this license and the Usage Rules), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Licensed Application, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open sourced components included with the Licensed Application). Any attempt to do so is a violation of our rights. If You breach this restriction, You may be subject to prosecution and damages. The terms of the license will govern any upgrades provided by us that replace and/or supplement our Services, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.
2. Consent to Use of Data
You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to technical information about Your mobile device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to You (if any) related to the Licensed Application. We may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify You, to improve our Services offered to You.
The license is effective until terminated by You or us. We will terminate your rights under this license without notice if You fail to comply with any term(s) of this license. Upon termination of the license, You shall cease all use of the Licensed Application, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Licensed Application.
In the course of using the Licensed Application You may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Nevertheless, You agree to use our Services at Your sole risk and we shall not have any liability to You for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable. You agree not to exploit the Services in any unauthorized way whatsoever, including but not limited to, trespass or burdening network capacity. You further agree not to use our Services in any manner to harass, abuse, stalk, threaten, defame or otherwise infringe or violate the rights of any other party, and that we are not in any way responsible for any such use by You, nor for any harassing, threatening, defamatory, offensive or illegal messages or transmissions that You may receive as a result of using our Services.
We make no representation that our Services are available for use in any particular location. To the extent You choose to access our Services, You do so at Your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws, including but not limited to applicable local laws. We reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to our Services at any time without notice. In no event will we be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to our Services. We may also impose limits on the use of or access to our Services, in any case and without notice or liability.
Any calls placed or messages sent (international, national or local) to non-HiTalk users, are subject to charges depending on your local service provider’s rates and plans. Before placing any calls or sending any messages to non-HiTalk users we recommend you check with your local service provider regarding their rates and plans. HiTalk is NOT responsible for any charges or fees incurred from any calls placed or messages sent.
