This End User License Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between you and us, SmashQuiz Ltd, a company incorporated in Dublin with registration no. 556616, and governs your use of the application called “SmashQuiz” made available for use on smartphones and other electronic devices (the “App”).
This Agreement governs your use of the App including any updates to, or supplements or replacements for, the App, unless separate terms accompany such updates, supplements or replacements, in which case the separate terms will apply. To use the App, you must accept this Agreement, so please read it carefully.
1 LICENSE TO USE THE APP
1.1 We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, revocable license to use the App for your personal, non-commercial purposes. You may only use the App on a device that you own or control and that is permitted by any applicable usage rules applied by your device’s manufacturer or by the marketplace at which we have made the App available. Any use of the App in any other manner, including, without limitation, resale, transfer, modification or distribution of the App or text, pictures, music, video, data and other content associated with the App is prohibited.
1.2 Except for your data (see section 3), we or our licensors own the intellectual property rights of the App and of the content of the App. Your right to such intellectual property right is limited to what is expressly stated in this Agreement.
1.3 This Agreement is concluded only between you and us and not with your device’s manufacturer or by the marketplace at which we have made the App available. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we are responsible for the App and the content thereof, and not such third parties.
2 ACCEPTABLE USE
2.1 You must not use the App in any way that causes, or may cause, damage to the App or impairment of the availability or accessibility of the App; or in any way which is unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful (including any manner that harasses, abuses, stalks, threatens, defames or otherwise infringes or violates the rights of any other party).
2.2 You must not use the App to copy, store, host, transmit, send, use, publish or distribute any content which consists of (or is linked to) spyware, computer virus, trojan horse, worm, keystroke logger, rootkit or other malicious computer software.
2.3 You must not conduct any systematic or automated data collection activities (including, without limitation, scraping, data mining, data extraction, data harvesting and data traffic sniffing) on or in relation to the App.
2.4 With regard to the competitive functions of the App, you must not use the App in any way that could be deemed dishonest or unfair in order to gain an advantage over other users.
2.5 You represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and that you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
3 YOUR DATA
3.1 In the following, “Your Data” means quiz questions, avatars, text, images, audio material, video material and other information that you submit to the App, for whatever purpose. Your Data does however not include your e-mail address, user ID or password.
3.2 You grant to us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute Your Data in any existing or future media. You also grant to us the right to sub-license these rights and the right to bring an action for infringement of these rights.
3.3 Your Data must not be illegal or unlawful, must not infringe any third party’s legal rights and must not be capable of giving rise to legal action whether against you or us or a third party (in each case under any applicable law).
3.4 We do not guarantee that any quiz questions, preferred modifications or other requests submitted to us are published on or otherwise included in the App. We reserve the right to edit or remove any information submitted to us, or stored on our servers, or hosted or published upon the App.
4 PREMIUM SERVICES
4.1 You may subscribe to premium services made available by us from time to time, subject to any applicable fees (the “Premium Services”). The Premium Services enhances the App by adding additional features not made generally available in the standard version of the App. Any Premium Services subscribed and paid for shall be considered a part of the App, as referred to in this Agreement. In addition, the following terms will apply.
4.2 You acknowledge and agree that we may at any time:
(a) remove features from the Premium Services, without any right for you to receive a refund of fees paid for such Premium Services, unless fundamental features have been removed without replacement of other comparable features;
(b) add new features that are considered Premium Services, that may or may not be subject to additional fees, if you choose to subscribe for such new features;
(c) change existing Premium Services, that may or may not be subject to additional fees (if you choose to subscribe for such new features), and that do not qualify for any refund, unless fundamental features have been removed without replacement of other comparable features.
4.3 Your right to any Premium Service you have subscribed and paid for is limited to the platform and edition of the App for which you have added the Premium Service. It does therefore not include other editions of the App or other applications made available by us or any other party on this or other platforms.

7 LIMITED WARRANTIES
7.1 We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on the App; nor do we commit to ensuring that the App remains available or that the content on the App is kept up to date.
7.2 The App is provided “as is” and you use the App at your own risk. To the fullest extent allowable under applicable law, we disclaim all warranties and conditions, whether express or implied, including any warranties or conditions that the App is merchantable, of satisfactory quality, reliable, accurate, fit for a particular purpose or need, non-infringing or free of defects or errors or able to operate on an uninterrupted basis, or that the use of the application by you is in compliance with laws applicable or that information transmitted in con-nection with the App will be successfully, accurately or securely transmitted.
7.3 In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the marketplace from which you have downloaded the App (such as Apple), and, if applicable, it will refund the purchase price (if any) for the App to you and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, it will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our sole responsibility.
8 NO LIABILITY
8.1 To the fullest extent allowable under applicable law, in no event shall we be liable to you with respect to use of the App; and be liable to you for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages, including, without limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, lost profits, loss, theft or corruption of user information, the inability to use the App or device failure or malfunction.
8.2 Your sole remedy is to cease use of the App. To the fullest extent allowable under applicable law, in no event (but subject to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law) shall the aggregate liability of us, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of or inability to use the App exceed the compensation you have paid, if any, to us for access to or use of the App.

9.2 We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will co-operate in asserting any available defences. In the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property right, we, not the marketplace at which you have downloaded the App, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defence, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.

12.1 We reserve the right to change or modify this Agreement or any other policies referred to herein related to use of the App at any time and at our sole discretion by posting revisions on our website or in the App. Continued use of the App following the posting of these changes or modifications will constitute acceptance of such changes or modifications.
