Terms of Service

Last updated: Feb 18, 2022

By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app. You’re not allowed to copy or modify the app, any part of the app, or our trademarks in any way. You’re not allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the app, and you also shouldn’t try to translate the app into other languages or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trademarks, copyright, database rights, and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to StartMob.

StartMob is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

The StoryPad app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, to provide our Service. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the StoryPad app won’t work properly or at all.

The app does use third-party services that declare their Terms and Conditions.

You should be aware that there are certain things that StartMob will not take responsibility for. Some app features will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection may be Wi-Fi or provided by your mobile operator, but StartMob cannot be held responsible for the app not working to its full potential if you do not have Wi-Fi access and do not have your data. the allowance remains.

If you are using the app outside of a Wi-Fi area, you should be aware that the terms of the agreement with your mobile operator will still apply. As a result, your mobile operator may charge you data charges for the duration of your connection when accessing the application, or other third-party charges. When using the App, you are responsible for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the App outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off roaming data. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you are using the app, please note that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer to use the app.

Likewise, StartMob cannot always take responsibility for how you use the app, i.e. you need to make sure that your device remains charged - if it runs out of battery and you cannot turn it on in order to use the service , StartMob cannot accept responsibility.

Regarding StartMob's liability for your use of the app, when you use the app, it is important to remember that while we strive to keep it up to date and correct, we rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. StartMob is not responsible for any damages, direct or indirect, that you incur as a result of relying entirely on this functionality of the application.

At some point, we may want to update the application. The app is currently available for Android - system requirements (and any additional systems we choose to extend the app's availability to) may change and you'll need to download updates if you want to continue using the app. StartMob does not promise that it will always update the application to suit you and/or work with the version of Android installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept app updates when they are offered to you. We may also terminate the provision of the application and terminate its use at any time without notifying you of the termination.
