Effective Date: October 10, 2016.
TERMS OF AGREEMENT:
In order to download the App, register with the App, use the App or Services (defined below) or view associated Linked Webpages, you must be at least thirteen (13) years of age. No users under the age of thirteen (13) are permitted to download, register with, or use the App or Services except under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian who has downloaded and registered with the App and has read and agrees to this Agreement.
THE APP AND SERVICES:
The App allows Registered Users to send personalized virtual gifts to Recipients via text messaging (the “Services”). In order to create and send your personalized virtual gift, Registered Users will be permitted to upload a picture or image to the App or record a voice message through the App as a gift, create and add certain customized features to your gift, select a Recipient, and send the gift to the Recipient as a text message. The App creates a text message on your mobile device containing a webpage link to your personalized virtual gift stored on RBM’s secure services. Once you send the text message, the Recipient will be able to click on the webpage link and view your personalized virtual gift.
You will first be required to provide a promotional code or pay a fee through an in-app purchase. All payments made while using the Services through the App are completed via the in-app purchase associated with the respective app store from which you downloaded the App, such as Google Play Store or Apple iTunes App Store. When sending your personalized virtual gift via text message on your mobile device, standard text messaging and data rates may also apply.
In order to download the App and use the Services, you will be required to register with the App (“Registered Users”). Registering with the App requires you to provide your name, email address and a password. Only persons at lease thirteen (13) years of age are permitted to register with the App. In the event you are not at least thirteen (13) years of age, your parent or guardian must register with the App by providing their name, email address and password and such parent or guardian may authorize you to use the App under their direct supervision.
You may access personalized virtual gifts sent to you (“Recipient”) by a Registered User of the App. Recipients may access their gift by clicking on the link provided in the text message sent by the Registered User. The link directs the Recipient’s web browser to a Linked Webpage stored on RBM’s secure servers (“Linked Webpages”). The Linked Webpage then allows the Recipient to acknowledge and open the gift through the Linked Webpage. Recipients are not required to register with the App before viewing their personalized virtual gifts.
