USER GENERATED CONTENT
Spy is set up to display content generated by users (“User Generated Content”). We don’t review, and cannot review, all of the content accessible via Spy, and cannot therefore be responsible for it. We don’t endorse any content uploaded, or believe such content to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. Spy may (but hopefully won’t) display content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. Each user chooses, and is responsible for, the content that is uploaded via Spy, and your access of User Generated Content is solely at your own risk.
If you submit content to or via Spy, you agree to the following:
you will only upload content that you own or are permitted to upload having obtained the necessary license or permission to use it, as well as the right to sublicense the content to us, without limitation;
you grant us a revocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide and transferable license to use, edit, modify, truncate, aggregate, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, perform, and otherwise fully exploit the content you upload to Spy, including the right to sub-license use of the content, in any medium or method, whether now known or hereafter devised;
you will not post or distribute any content which infringes any intellectual property (“IP”) rights or any other party’s right to privacy, publicity rights or contractual rights;
you agree not to assert your “moral rights” (rights of authorship and rights not to have your work treated in a derogatory manner) in any content uploaded via Spy;
you will not upload another person’s sensitive personal data without their consent;
you will not upload any content which you know is false, or is defamatory, libellous, deceptive, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, pornographic, profane, hateful or racially or ethnically objectionable, unlawful, obscene, harmful, offensive, misleading or inappropriate, or contains or depicts nudity or sexual activity; and
you will not upload any spam (unsolicited advertising material), or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third-party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third-party sites.
If we become aware of any breach of these terms, we may modify, withdraw or refuse to display the relevant content at any time in our discretion and/or withdraw your right to use Spy.

Spy is not directed at children under 13. If you become aware that your child has been using Spy without your consent, please contact us at email@example.com. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13. If we become aware that a child has provided us with personal data, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account. If you become aware that your child under 13 has provided any of our partners with personal data without your consent, you may elect to notify such partner directly and request that it remove or destroy any personal information in its possession concerning your child. Spy cannot be responsible for ensuring that our partners remove or destroy such personal information. However, Spy requires its partners to agree to remove or destroy such personally identifiable information if requested to do so.
THIRD PARTY SITES AND APPS
Spy will enable you to access other apps and sites. Even though these apps and sites are accessible via Spy, they are not owned or controlled by us. As a result, we are not responsible or liable for, and you release us from, any loss or damage incurred by you as a result of, with regard to such third party apps and sites, what you experience, the content you access, what impact that content has on you, or any dealings between you and these third parties or the failure of third party apps or sites to function properly.
PRICING AND PRODUCT PURCHASES
Spy endeavors to make all published pricing correct. Occasionally, content on Spy may contain incorrect information, whereby a product is listed at an incorrect price, due to typographical errors or error in pricing information provided by the merchant.
While Spy enables third parties to list their products, no transactions are carried out on the Spy platform. Accordingly, Spy is not a party to any resulting transactions nor assumes any responsibility for any purchases arising out of or in connection with our App or Site. Please do not take our listings to imply any kind of endorsement of these offerings or of any of these businesses or individuals, or the content of their websites.
ADVERTISING AND COOKIES
Spy may deliver advertising in the form of banners, paid links, coupons, promotions, sponsorship graphics or other means to you via our App, Site or via other third-party services and websites (“Advertising”). We may use “cookies” (as outlined in our Privacy and Cookies Policy) to improve our service, to make your experience more personalized, and to make advertising more relevant to you. Our Advertising may be contextual, that is related to your location, your use of the App over time, or based on other information you have provided to Spy or has been provided to us by third parties or is ascertainable from your user profile.
If you experience a problem with Spy, please report it to us. We may occasionally restrict your access to Spy to carry out repairs, maintenance or to introduce new functionality or services, but we will try to keep disruption to a minimum.
