1.1 The terms of this EULA apply to the App(s) or any of the services accessible through the App(s) (Service(s)), including any updates or supplements to the App(s) or any Service(s), unless they come with separate terms, in which case those terms apply. If any open-source software is included in the App(s) or any Service(s), the terms of an open-source licence may override some of the terms of this EULA.

1.2 We may change these terms at any time by notifying you of a change when you next start the App(s). The new terms may be displayed on-screen and you may be required to read and accept them to continue your use of the Service(s).

1.3 From time to time updates to the App(s) may be issued through the Appstore. Depending on the update, you may not be able to use the Services until you have downloaded or streamed the latest version of the App(s) and accepted any new terms.

1.4 You will be assumed to have obtained permission from the owners of the mobile devices that are controlled, but not owned, by you and described in condition 2.2(a) (Devices) and to download or stream a copy of the App(s) onto the Devices. You and they may be charged by your and their service providers for internet access on the Devices. You should check with your mobile or internet service provider for details of data and internet usage charges. You accept responsibility in accordance with the terms of this EULA for the use of the App(s) or any Service(s) on or in relation to any Device, whether or not it is owned by you.

1.5 The terms of our privacy policy from time to time (Privacy Policy), available here for the App(s) are incorporated into this EULA by reference and apply to those Services that are not specified in condition 1.1 as having separate privacy policies. Additionally, by using the App(s) or any Service(s), you acknowledge and agree that internet transmissions are never completely private or secure.

1.6 By using the App(s) or any of the Service(s), you consent to us collecting and using information about your activity within the app to improve our products and to provide any Service(s) to you. All information about your activity within the app is collected by systems which are designed with your privacy in mind. App does not retain any personal data about you, but we use Google services to provide some features and those services collect some data in order to perform their function such as:

  • Technical specs of your device are gathered and stored temporarily to enable the Firebase Dynamic Links function on iOS devices.

  • Device "Instance IDs" are collected to enable push notifications to be delivered using the Firebase Cloud Messaging service if the feature is enabled. These are retained for a maximum of 180 days.

  • Geolocation services are used to monitor the geographical location of users. This is restricted to the country and region (e.g county in UK) of users only and is used solely to ensure that you are presented with the most relevant information for your location and to monitor activity by region/area. For more information on this, please see condition 1.9 below.

(more information is available here)

1.7 The App(s) or any Service(s) may contain links to other independent third-party websites (Third-party Sites). Third-party Sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse their content or their privacy policies (if any). You will need to make your own independent judgement regarding your interaction with any Third-party Sites, including the purchase and use of any products or services accessible through them.

1.8 Any words following the terms including, include, in particular or for example or any similar phrase shall be construed as illustrative and shall not limit the generality of the related general words.

1.9 Certain Services on the App(s) ensure that you are always presented with the most relevant information for your region and will make use of location data sent from your device at time of installation. If you use these Services, you consent to us and our affiliates’ and licensees’ transmission, collection, retention, maintenance, processing and use of your location data and queries to provide and improve location-based services. You may stop us collecting such data at any time by turning off the location services settings for the App(s) on your Devices, which will also disable such region-relevant Services.
