E. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change this Agreement from time to time.

You agree that we may notify you of modifications to the Agreement by posting them on the App, and that your use of the App after the effective date of the Agreement (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the new Agreement. Therefore, you should review this Agreement, and modifications thereto, before using the App. The Agreement will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Agreement, and will apply to your use of the App from that point forward.

V. Rights

A. Family Picture Will does not claim ownership of any content that you post on or through the App. Instead, you hereby grant to Family Picture Will a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the content that you post on or through the App, subject to the Privacy Policy in Part XV of this Agreement, including but not limited to sections C ("Sharing of Your Information") and D ("How We Store Your Information").

B. The App is supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that Family Picture Will may place such advertising and promotions on the App or on, about, or in conjunction with your content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.

C. You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored, content, or commercial communications as such.

D. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the content posted by you on or through the App or otherwise have the right to grant the rights and licenses set forth in this Agreement; (ii) the posting and use of your content on or through the App does not violate, misappropriate or infringe on the rights of any third party, including, without limitation, privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademark and/or other intellectual property rights; (iii) you agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owed by reason of content you post on or through the App; and (iv) you have the legal right and capacity to enter into this Agreement in your jurisdiction.

E. Although it is Family Picture Will’s intention for the App to be available as much as possible, there will be occasions when the App may be interrupted, including, without limitation, for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and/or equipment.

F. Family Picture Will reserves the right to remove any content from the App for any reason, without prior notice. Content removed from the App may continue to be stored by Family Picture Will, including, without limitation, in order to comply with certain legal obligations, but may not be retrievable without a valid court order. Consequently, Family Picture Will encourages you to maintain your own backup of your content. In other words, Family Picture Will is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the App for the purposes of content backup or storage. Family Picture Will will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the App, or the loss of any content.

H. Except as otherwise described in the Privacy Policy in Part XV, as between you and Family Picture Will, any content will be non-confidential and non-proprietary and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of content. You acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Family Picture Will is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other type of special relationship, and that your decision to submit any content does not place Family Picture Will in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public, including with regard to your content. None of your content will be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Family Picture Will, and Family Picture Will will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any content you provide.

I. It is Family Picture Will’s policy not to accept or consider content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials other than those we have specifically requested and to which certain specific terms, conditions and requirements may apply. This is to avoid any misunderstandings if your ideas are similar to those we have developed or are developing independently. Accordingly, Family Picture Will does not accept unsolicited materials or ideas, and takes no responsibility for any materials or ideas so transmitted. If, despite our policy, you choose to send us content, information, ideas, suggestions, or other materials, you further agree that Family Picture Will is free to use any such content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials, for any purposes whatsoever, including, without limitation, developing and marketing products and services, without any liability or payment of any kind to you.

VI. Service Access and Speed

Service speed may vary depending on your online or Internet service provider, location, line quality, inside wiring, Internet traffic, and other factors beyond our control. You acknowledge and agree that you must provide for your own access to the Internet and pay any service fees associated with such access, and that you must provide all equipment necessary for you to make such connection to the Internet, including a computer and modem.

You may not have full access to the App if the Internet connection for your Internet service provider is down or inaccessible, or if you provide incorrect information.  If your Internet service provider terminates your service, your access to the App may be limited or denied.  Family Picture Will is not responsible for any such limitation or denial, or for any long-distance, toll, or other charges or fees you incur while you use the App.

a. Information Users Provide Directly

Your username, password and e-mail address when you register for a Family Picture Will account. Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., first and last name, picture, phone number). This information allows us to help you or others be “found” on Family Picture Will.

For example, we may send you App-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the App, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of App-related e-mails.

b. Analytics Information

We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the App. These tools collect information sent by your device or our App. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual user.

c. Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit the App, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Family Picture Will and provide features to you. We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

d. Log File Information

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device. When you use our App, our servers automatically record certain log file information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the App.

e. Device Identifiers

When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our App, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Family Picture Will. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the App and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the App may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

f. Metadata

Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with user content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of user content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their user content, comments or other data. This makes your user content more searchable by others and more interactive.

B. How We Use Your Information

In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use information that we receive to: help you efficiently access your information after you sign in; remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the App; provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing; provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our App; develop and test new products and features; monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; diagnose or fix technology problems.

Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the service under reasonable confidentiality terms.

We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties.
