In spite of the aforementioned, and in compliance with applicable law, TUENTI may make exceptions and allow persons under 14 years of age to register in the private social platform Tuenti, if and only when TUENTI receives adequate parental authorization signed by the father, mother, and/or legal guardian of the minor that would like to register and access the Service, along with all necessary documentation for verifying the authenticity and validity of the authorization—for example, a copy of the official valid ID of the father, mother, and/or legal guardian, proof of parental relationship (birth certificate, “Libro de Familia” or equivalent), along with a copy of the official valid ID of the minor, if one exists.

You must also be aware that, to be able to use the TUENTI Service, you must receive an invitation in your email and/or mobile phone from a friend or contact that is already a TUENTI user or you must request an account through one of the secure alternative options established by TUENTI.

PROFILE USE AND INFORMATION

You expressly accept that the Service and all features associated with TUENTI’s private social platform are offered exclusively for personal use and that it is expressly prohibited to use them for any economic or commercial gain without first receiving authorization from TUENTI.

With the exception of cases expressly provided for in these Terms of Use and without prejudice to the advertising, communication, and sponsorship tools that TUENTI may provide, it is PROHIBITED for any corporate entity – whether a business, association, or any other type of corporate or juristic entity – to have a Profile.

Access to the Service necessarily implies that you provide certain personal information to TUENTI and, inasmuch, that you accept our Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy. Providing false information is expressly prohibited; you must identify yourself with your real name and truthful personal information. If TUENTI becomes aware of false information related with a Profile, we may delete the Profile or rectify the information in accordance with these Terms of Use.

All information provided to TUENTI must be accurate and up to date at all times.

Access to the Service and use of a Profile implies your commitment and obligation to their adequate use, in accordance with these Terms of Use and applicable laws, whether national or international, along with the principles of good faith, general decency, and public order, and a commitment to diligently follow any additional instructions that TUENTI may give you in relation to the access and use that you exercise. You are fully responsible for your use of the Profile.

RESPONSIBILITIES

You are obligated to make reasonable use of the Service, website, and the contents therein, along with the mobile applications offered by TUENTI, according to the purposes and possibilities for which they are designed, respectively.

In relation to the Service, TUENTI acts solely as an intermediary that makes its technological platform available for use, assuming only those responsibilities derived from due prudence that fall within applicable law. TUENTI does not assume any responsibility, direct or indirect, for improper, fraudulent or illegal use of the Service, website, mobile application, or contents therein.

TUENTI will take all reasonably possible steps to supervise the legality of the contents, images, comments, opinions, and other information shared and communicated through the Service, website, and/or mobile applications offered by TUENTI. However, given that it is impossible for us to maintain absolute control over the aforementioned, you will be solely responsible for the information, images, comments, opinions, allusions, and all other content of any type that you communicate, store, transmit, or exhibit on your Profile.

Specifically, TUENTI is not to be considered responsible editor, and we expressly declare that the opinions that may be transmitted by users through the Service are not endorsed by or representative of TUENTI; the issuer of any and all information is fully and solely responsible for all consequences its transmission may bring about.

We reserve the right to limit the publication within the Service of content, opinions, information, comments, images, and drawings—through the installation of filters designed for this purpose—that users might bring to our attention. The aforementioned does not imply any responsibility or obligation whatsoever on TUENTI to control the contents that may be transmitted through the Service, but rather the willingness to avoid, to the extent that it is reasonably possible, the use of the Service to transmit content, comments, or opinions on the Internet that may be considered defamatory, racist, sexist, xenophobic, discriminatory, pornographic, violent, that violate in any way general decency, public order, or are clearly illicit or illegal.

If TUENTI or an entity that is sponsoring/collaborating on an event, promotion, contest, or activity made available through the Service becomes aware of any anomaly or fraudulent activity, or suspects that a participating user is attempting to prevent or hinder the natural development and execution of such activities, TUENTI or the collaborating entity can unilaterally remove said participating user, eliminate the event, contest, promotion, or activity, and/or nullify the prize related to such events or activities, without warning.

In the application of the aforementioned, TUENTI reserves the right to deactivate or delete any Profile automatically and without warning; in case of such deactivation or deletion, the user has no right to any compensation.

IMPERSONATION

If TUENTI has reason to believe that you are using a Profile to impersonate another person or entity through the creation of a Profile, we will verify your identity and, upon verifying that you are impersonating a third party, we will delete your Profile. Likewise, if TUENTI is unable to adequately verify your identity, your Profile will be deleted.

If you are aware of a false Profile or have reason to believe that someone is using a Profile to impersonate a third party, do not hesitate to contact us using this form or report the Profile using the “Report” option that TUENTI makes available throughout the website.

TUENTI, through these Terms of Use and as owner of the Service, grants you a limited, temporary and revokable license, which may not be sublicensed, and is for strictly personal use of the Service. As a noted exception to said license, it is absolutely prohibited to reproduce, distribute, publicly communicate, modify, or exploit all or part of the content (images, texts, design, indexes, forms, videos, etc.) that forms part of the website, along with the databases and software necessary for its visualization or use, without having first received TUENTI’s express written consent for such activities.

Consequently, TUENTI reserves all rights not expressly granted to the user within these Terms of Use.

All exploitation or economic gain, whether direct or indirect, whole or partial, of the content (images, texts, design, indexes, forms, etc.) that makes up the website and/or mobile applications provided by TUENTI is absolutely prohibited without having first received TUENTI’s express written consent for such activities. If TUENTI detects that the current license has been violated, TUENTI will delete your Profile without regard for secondary consequences that may be caused by said violation.

USERS’ PROFILE CONTENTS

Upon publishing content (statuses, photos, files, text, video, sounds, drawings, logos, or any other material) on your Profile, you maintain all rights to the content and grant TUENTI a limited license to reproduce and publicly communicate it, and to add information and make necessary modifications to adapt it to the technical requirements of the Service. This authorization is global and nonexclusive (you can grant other licenses for the same content to other persons or entities outside of TUENTI) as long as you have a Profile and with the exclusive objective of allowing TUENTI to provide the Service outlined in these Terms of Use.

The aforementioned license will be null and void at the moment you remove your content from the Service or deactivate your Profile. From the moment that either of these occurs, TUENTI will terminate the communication of your content as quickly as possible.

Under all circumstances, each user is solely responsible for the content that is published or shared in their status field and, inasmuch, for all consequences that may be derived from such publication, expressly relieving TUENTI of all responsibility in this regard.

NOTIFICATION OF RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

TUENTI works to protect each person’s or entity’s rights.

  • Similarly, through this feature, users of the Service will be able to publish, share (with registered users of the private social Tuenti platform as well as with unregistered third parties) comments, references, photos and diverse content related to leisure sites and companies such as restaurants, bars, vendors, pubs, museums, etc.

  • Users can create Standard, or Premium TUENTI Pages. Standard Pages are those which can be created directly from the Tuenti platform for a place to share with friends. Premium Pages are Pages that allow brands and advertisers, insitutions and public figures to have stronger interaction with users. A TUENTI team will be responsible for prior validation of the Page.
  • TUENTI doe not censure opinions or comments as long as they are respectful and polite. However, if TUENTI detects comments or content prohibited by our Terms of Use and/or Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy, or illicit content, it will be eliminated immediately.

  • Users that are administrators of TUENTI Pages and/or claim to be rightful owners of the Page assure that they they bear all rights and permission necessary to administer said TUENTI Page.

TERMS OF USE FOR TUENTI’S CHAT SERVICE

The chat or instant messaging service provided by TUENTI allows the user to, both through the TUENTI website and the mobile applications, exchange instant messages of text and/or multimedia content with their network of friends and contacts in the private social network Tuenti, using the mobile or landline data network that the user has contracted with their telecommunications service provider.

To that effect, the following distinction must be kept in mind:

  • “Contacts” are the users of the private social network Tuenti that form part of the network of contacts of a given user. These contacts can only send chat messages to the user and see the basic identifying information on the user’s Profile (full name and, if available, Profile Photo), but cannot access the complete Profile on the private social network Tuenti. Consequently, contacts do not have access to the content shared by the user in their Profile, such as statuses, photos, or locations published by the user in their wall, among other information.
  • “Friends” are the users of the private social network Tuenti that form part of the network of friends of a given user. Friends can send chat messages and have access to the information in a user’s Profile in the private social network Tuenti, according to the configuration of the user’s privacy options and the information shared in the Profile.

The user has options for managing their list of contacts for chatting, their list of friends, blocked users, etc.

TUENTI acts solely as an intermediary with regard to the messages and/or content that are exchanged among users through the chat or instant messaging service, especially keeping in mind that TUENTI is not able to control or review the content published by users in said messages. Inasmuch, the user is fully and solely responsible, before TUENTI and third parties, for the texts and/or multimedia messages that the user sends or shares with other users.

Without prejudice to the aforementioned, the user agrees to not include information or content in the messages sent through the various features of the private social network Tuenti for the purpose of commercial gain, nor information or content that may be in violation of the rights of TUENTI and/or a third party, of the law, of good conduct, and/or of these Terms of Use.

EVENTS AND PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Your Profile includes a “My Events” space, where you can post information about any personal event you would like (birthday party, etc.). You can also invite your network of friends within the private social network Tuenti to participate in your personal events.

Apart from users’ personal events, TUENTI may also carry out different types of promotional activities. To give an example, there are activities called “Sponsored Events”, carried out by TUENTI’s partnering professionals or businesses. These events work in exactly the same way as the personal events with the exception that, in these events, TUENTI invites you to participate due to the partnership between TUENTI and the entity carrying out the event. The same guidelines for use of the Service, as outlined in these Terms of Use, are applied to the participation in these events. When you indicate that you are going, or that you might go, to one of these events, be aware that other users of the Service that can see the event, whether they have accepted the invitation or not, can see your indication that you are going, or might go, to the event.

The participation in possible events, contests, promotions, or any other activity provided by the Service and organized by TUENTI and/or TUENTI’s partnering entities implies your acceptance of the particular terms of each event, contest, promotion, and/or activity. The participation in these events, contests, promotions, and/or activities may be subject to additional requirements (age, place or country of residence, etc.), and the awarding of prizes to the winners of any activity organized by TUENTI and/or TUENTI’s partnering entities may be subject to the fulfillment of specific conditions or requirements.

Inasmuch, when TUENTI’s sole function is that of intermediary, all possible complaints or lawsuits related to the events, contests, promotions, and/or activities organized by TUENTI’s partnering entities must be handled directly with the responsible entity. TUENTI is not responsible, directly or indirectly, for any mistake, error, or failure related to the events, contests, promotions, and/or activities organized by said entities and made available as part of the Service.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR INTERACTION WITH OTHER USERS

You are fully and solely responsible for your interactions with other users throughout the Service. TUENTI does not control your personal relationships. However, we do recommend that you are careful when choosing your contacts and friends and the people you choose to add to your networks. And of course, if someone harasses, bothers, or intimidates you, communicate the problem to us so that we can take the necessary actions.

TUENTI will not be held responsible for any conflict that you may have with another user and/or that does not imply a violation of these Terms of Use by either/any of you; for example, the buying or selling of products among users.  TUENTI is not responsible or obligated to act in such cases, but reserves the right to mediate in conflicts that may arise.

ADVERTISING

You understand and accept that the Service includes advertisements, and that, inasmuch, you can access third-party advertising from your Profile that TUENTI and/or other entities provide through the Service.

INVITATIONS, OTHER FORMS OF ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, PASSWORD RECOVERY, AND OTHER NOTIFICATIONS

TUENTI provides a notification service that informs you, via email, of activity and updates on your Profile and throughout your network of friends in the Service. You can choose whether or not to receive these notifications from the “Settings” section of your Profile on the website.

This notification service does not affect communications that TUENTI may send you to:

  • Recover your password, if you forget it and request a new one.
  • Send you new invitations that you can, in turn, use to invite people to register in the Service.
  • Send you confirmation and/or security codes for accessing the Service.
  • Change the email address associated with your account.

You understand and agree that the stated types of communication, and others similar to these, are a necessary part of the Service.

As a user of the Service, you can send requests for other people to form part of your network of contacts or friends on the private social network Tuenti by simply sending an invitation to their email address or mobile phone through the automated invitation service provided by TUENTI. The invitation is simply a tool that TUENTI makes available to you for the purpose of offering other people the opportunity to register as a user on the private social platform Tuenti and maintain contact with you.

In line with the aforementioned, and if you so desire, you can send the following types of invitations and requests through the website and/or your mobile device using a TUENTI mobile application that offers this function, by email and/or SMS, depending on whether the user is already registered in the private social platform Tuenti, and depending on whether you want to request that the person form part of your network of contacts or your network of friends:

  • Invitation to persons not registered in the private social network Tuenti: The user can send an registration invitation, offering the recipient the opportunity to register as a user of the Service and to form part of the user’s network of contacts or friends within the Service.
  • Requests to users already registered in the private social network Tuenti: The user can also send requests to persons that are already registered in the Service so that said persons can form part of the user’s network of friends or contacts in the Service.

If the user decides to use the mobile application provided by TUENTI to send the aforementioned invitations and/or requests, said application will automatically complete the text fields in the mobile device’s email and/or SMS applications.

Sending an invitation does not imply that your contact or friend is automatically registered in the Service. The recipient must first accept the invitation you send them and fulfill the registration requirements set forth by TUENTI.

TUENTI will not store the information you provide in the invitation nor the email or phone number you provide. You will be fully responsible for any conflict or complaint that arises related to the invitation from TUENTI.

When you send an invitation to join TUENTI, you are fully responsible to the recipient of the invitation for any complaint that the recipient might make against TUENTI, relieving TUENTI of any and all responsibility related to the invitation.

When you use an alternative option established by TUENTI to become a user of the Service, TUENTI reserves the right to request specific personal information for the purpose of sending confirmation codes and verify your registration.

Remember that the information requested by TUENTI is designed to securely manage your registration for the Service. To that end, you must follow the established instructions for the request, verification, and registration of an account. Providing said information does not imply the automatic registration in the Service, nor that we will use that information for any other purposes than those stated here.

Likewise, all users that desire to use the mobile application provided by TUENTI will be required to verify their mobile phone number during the registration process in the application. To that end, the user must introduce their mobile phone number in the established form within the mobile application provided by TUENTI. TUENTI will then send an SMS with a confirmation code to the number provided, which the user must introduce in the application to complete the verification process.

USE OF LINKS

The use of any technical, logical, or technological resource through which someone, whether or not a user of the Service, might benefit directly or indirectly, with or without commercial gain, from the Profiles or contents of the website IS ABSOLUTELY PROHIBITED.

You cannot insert or publish any link, hyperlink, frame, or similar resource that redirects to a URL related to TUENTI’s content and/or Profiles on any website, blog, forum, TUENTI Profile or that of any other social network. If TUENTI detects a link or similar resource that potentially violates the intimacy, honor, or image rights of any user, TUENTI will take actions to eliminate this link and, when TUENTI deems it appropriate, communicate the activity to the appropriate authorities.

TERMS OF USE FOR MOBILE ACCESS TO TUENTI

All provisions outlined in these Terms of Use apply equally to the access to and use of the Service from mobile phones and/or devices, whether from the website and/or TUENTI mobile applications.

Regarding mobile access, we do not charge any price or fee for your access to the Service from your mobile device or for downloading or using TUENTI mobile applications. However, your mobile service provider will apply the data transfer rates and fees stipulated for the services you have contracted with them. Consequently, your use confirms your understanding and acceptance that your mobile service provider may charge you for Internet access, text messages, and/or other activity using the Service through a mobile network.

Thus, we recommend that you check with your mobile service provider about the prices and fees that may apply when you download a mobile application provided by TUENTI and/or you use the Service from your mobile device, along with any restrictions that may apply. Remember that you are fully and solely responsible for paying the bills and/or any costs you may incur as a result of accessing the Service from your mobile phone or device, based on the rates you have contracted with your service provider.

TUENTI takes no responsibility for the restrictions that your mobile service provider may place on the Service or that may prevent the Service from working properly. Inasmuch, you are responsible for knowing if your mobile service provider, your contracted rates, and your mobile device are adequate for accessing the Service and/or using the mobile applications made available by TUENTI.

TUENTI does not accept any responsibility for errors or interruptions in the telecommunications network used by your mobile service provider, nor for loss or damage to your mobile device. In case of such events, you are solely responsibility for contacting your mobile service provider immediately to avoid incorrect or unauthorized use of your mobile device. Likewise, TUENTI does not accept any responsibility related to errors, incompatibilities, and/or damage to your mobile device that may be caused by the download and/or use of TUENTI’s mobile application(s).

It is important to remember that there are many features and services available through the website of the private social network Tuenti that are not available through m.tuenti.com, m.tuenti.es, or the TUENTI mobile applications.

TUENTI offers mobile applications to users free of charge for download and exclusively personal use without commercial gain.

TUENTI VOIP TERMS OF USE

The telephone Internet or Voice over IP service offered by TUENTI to its users (henceforth “Tuenti VoIP”), is a service meant for exclusive personal use by the user, not interoperable with traditional telephone services or “telephone service available to the public” (STDP), that permits the exchange of calls to be placed through the Internet to contacts and friends using the Service.

While Tuenti VoIP allows for the sending and receiving of calls among users of the private social Tuenti platform, this service does not replace or substitute users’ traditional phone service or STDP (landline or mobile). Among the main differences between Tuenti VoIP and traditional telephone services is that through Tuenti VoIP, calls cannot be placed to landline telephone numbers, mobiles, telephone information numbers, or to Emergency Service numbers such as 122, but rather only to users of Tuenti VoIP that have all of the necessary technical and software means. Therefore, users should have alternate means of ensuring their ability to make and handle calls to aforementioned Emergency Services, if necessary.

Users that wish to make use of Tuenti VoIP must have the necessary software, equipment and/or means for its proper use and operation such as access to broadband Internet and a compatible mobile device. Thus, in order to use Tuenti VoIP, users must use an Internet connection contracted with their respective Operator whether it is mobile or a fixed data network.

In this regard, TUENTI does not charge for access to Tuenti VoIP with your mobile device or for the download and use of TUENTI mobile applications, but your telephone Operator may apply a tariff that you have contracted for the sending and receiving of data. Consequently, by using Tuenti VoIP, you state that you accept and understand that your telephone Operator may charge you for the required connection and consumption of data as a result of the use of Tuenti VoIP.

As TUENTI wishes to promote the responsible and sensible use of our VoIP service, we have established a fair usage policy for this service with the objective of preventing possible fraud, excessive and/or abusive use that can negatively affect the quality of the service and/or that of other users. For this reason, we ask that Tuenti VoIP not be used excessively or in an unreasonable way and that it always be used for personal and private purposes, and never for commercial and/or advertising purposes.

For informational purposes only, excessive or unreasonable use is understood to be that which is significantly above the average use of users of Tuenti VoIP, according to statistics obtained by TUENTI in this regard. In order to carry out this measurement, TUENTI will always use objective parameters based on the use of each user individually, make of the Tuenti VoIP service. If TUENTI should detect that the use of a user of Tuenti VoIP is excessive, we will contact the user and, in extreme cases, cancel the Service of that user.

The Tuenti VoIP service is offered to users without any type of guarantee since TUENTI cannot guarantee the quality of the service or that it will be available at all times and without errors or interruptions, and the user does not have the right to make claims against TUENTI regarding this matter. For example, the quality of the conversations held among users through Tuenti VoIP may be affected by factors beyond TUENTI such as the Internet connection contracted by each user, geographical location at the time of the call, and/or the battery level of each mobile device. At the same time, please keep in mind that some operators may restrict or limit the use of VoIP services on their own networks.

Therefore, TUENTI will not be held responsible for any interruptions, dropped calls, malfunctions, or delays related to the Tuenti VoIP service arising from a failure or defect caused by one of the one of the aforementioned causes for which TUENTI has no control such being that they are of force majeure.

Although the service may be accessible outside of Spain, it may have certain restrictions, may not operate properly, or may not be available in all countries. You understand and accept that it was designed to be used by individuals that meet the current Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, in any country or jurisdiction in which its use is not contrary to any local laws or regulations in force at all times.

The user is solely responsible for the use of Tuenti VoIP at all times for which s/he must commit to the proper use of it, always in compliance with these Terms of Use, current national and international legislation, as well as the principles of good faith, morality, and public order. The user will always be solely responsible for using Tuenti VoIP in accordance with the laws that apply in their country of residence. To this end, the user agrees not to use Tuenti VoIP for commercial, illegal or fraudulent purposes or those that are objectionable in any way and may be contrary to the rights of TUENTI, other users, and/or affected third parties.

The content of the conversations held will be the sole responsibility of the user placing such calls and, for this reason, this user will be held responsible to TUENTI and third parties for the calls made to other users. TUENTI is merely an intermediary regarding calls and communication exchanged among users of the Tuenti VoIP service and therefore, TUENTI will not control or monitor the content of the conversations transmitted through the service, nor will it assume any responsibility for the content of such communication among users beyond that which is statutorily required, if any.

Finally, with respect to the collection and treatment of users’ personal data such as data traffic and call history on VoIP that may arise from the use of the Tuenti VoIP service, this will be done by TUENTI in strict compliance with the provisions of rules on data protection and in accordance with TUENTI’s Privacy and Data Protection Policy.

If you decide not to share this information with the persons included in your network of friends on the private social platform Tuenti, your information will remain private and only visible to you.

Additionally, you can control who sends you private messages within the private social platform Tuenti based on these three categories:

  • Only friends. You will only receive private messages from the people that you have accepted as friends.
