Terms of use

Welcome to Moments!

These Terms of Use (or “Terms”) govern your use of Moments (the App, the Service), except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. When you create a Moments account or use Moments, you agree to these Terms.

The Moments App

We agree to provide you with the Moments Service. The Service includes all of the Moments products, features, applications, services, technologies, and software that we provide to advance Moments's mission: To help you enjoy your life to the fullest and to let you share it with the people you care about. The Service is made up of the following aspects:

Allowing you to record moments of your life, share them with others and view them in the future.

The social network scene has become increasingly conrtent-focused and, in our opinion, no longer serves a social purpose. We want to give you the opportunity to enjoy your life and to share it with the people you care about, as well as to view your favorite moments later on. This means allowing you to store pictures, video, audio, and text as well as location and time data in the Service, and to share it with others.

Enhancing your memories with filters, recaps and other features.

We believe that profile pictures, bios and the content of a public profile in a social network are not representative of that user. We want to offer ways to let you decide how you want your history to be, as well as to recommend some of them. We do this by letting you use filters on pictures and videos that you upload and by using your existing ones to provide recommendations about how they might come together (e.g. by providing a recap of your last year's best moments). You can learn more about how we use your data for this purpose in our Data Policy.

Developing features and technologies that help us improve the experience for our users.

Storing and analyzing usage data is key to Moments to understand how you use the App and how we might improve it for you. We use technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence to interpret the data and to devise new, exciting features for you. You can learn more about how we use your data for this purpose in our Data Policy.

Creating a safe environment that lets everyone enjoy their best moments.

We develop and use tools that help us protect users against harmful behavior. While we do not hold responsibility for the content that you upload to the Service, we retain the right to remove anything that violates the Terms of Use. You can find what violates these Terms in the What you can't do section in this document. You can learn more about how we use your data for this purpose in our Data Policy.

Ensuring access to the Service

To operate the Service, we may need to store and transfer data across our systems around the world, including outside of your country of residence. The use of this global infrastructure might be necessary and essential to provide the Service.

How we are funded

Moments is currently funded by the team's own economic resources. We don't sell your personal data to third parties in order to fund Service. The App is free to use and will include the option to buy assets in exchange for currency in the future.

Your commitments

In return for our commitment to provide the Service, we require you to make the below commitments to us.

Who can use Moments

We want our Service to be as open and inclusive as possible, but we also want it to be safe, secure, and in accordance with the law. So, we need you to commit to a few restrictions in order to be part of the Moments community.

  • You must be at least 14 years old.
  • You must not be prohibited from receiving any aspect of our Service under applicable laws or engaging in payments related Services if you are on an applicable denied party listing.
  • We must not have previously disabled your account for violation of law or any of our policies.
How you can't use Moments

Providing a safe and open Service for a you and the people around you requires that we all do our part.

  • You can't do anything unlawful, misleading, or fraudulent or for an illegal or unauthorized purpose.
  • You can't violate (or help or encourage others to violate) these Terms or any of our policies.
  • You can't do anything to interfere with or impair the intended operation of the Service. This includes attempting to disrupt the Service's performance, performing cyberattacks on your or any other users' data or purposefully flooding any support or appeals channel, among anything else that we might consider harmful to Moments.
  • You can't attempt to create accounts or access or collect information in unauthorized ways. This includes creating accounts or collecting information in an automated way without our express permission.
  • You can’t sell, license, or purchase any account or data obtained from us or our Service. This includes attempts to buy, sell, or transfer any aspect of your account (including your username); solicit, collect, or use login credentials or badges of other users; or request or collect Instagram usernames, passwords, or misappropriate access tokens.
  • You can't store someone else’s private or confidential information without their explicit permission or do anything that violates someone else's rights.
  • You can’t modify, translate, create derivative works of, or reverse engineer our products or their components.
Permissions you give us

By agreeing to these terms, you give us a set of permissions that we need in order to run the Service.

  • We do not claim ownership of your content, but you grant us a license to use it. Nothing is changing about your rights in your content. We do not claim ownership of your content that you post on or through the Service and you are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want. However, we need certain legal permissions from you (known as a “license”) to provide the Service. When you share or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights (like photos or videos) on or in connection with our Service, you hereby grant to us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and application settings). This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems. You can delete content individually or all at once by deleting your account. You can learn more about how we use your data in our Data Policy.
  • You agree that we can download and install software updates to the Service in your device.
Additional rights we retain
  • If you use content covered by intellectual property rights that we have and make available in our Service (for example, images, designs, videos, or sounds we provide that you add to content you create or share), we retain all rights to our content (but not yours).
  • You can only use our intellectual property and trademarks or similar marks with our prior written permission.
  • You must obtain written permission from us or under an open source license to modify, create derivative works of, decompile, or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us.
Content removal and disabling or terminating Your Account
  • We can remove any content or information you upload to the Service if we believe that it violates these Terms of Use, our policies, or we are required to do so by law. We can refuse to provide or stop providing all or part of the Service to you (including terminating or disabling your access to Moments) immediately to protect our community or services, or if you create risk or legal exposure for us, violate these Terms of Use or our policies, if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights, or where we are required to do so by law. We can also terminate or change the Service, remove or block content or information shared on our Service, or stop providing all or part of the Service if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts on us. In some cases when we remove content, we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request another review, unless you seriously or repeatedly violate these Terms or if doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems, or products; where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons. If you believe your account has been terminated in error, or you want to disable or permanently delete your account, consult our Help Center.
  • When you request to delete content or your account, the deletion process will automatically begin no more than 30 days after your request. It may take up to 90 days to delete content after the deletion process begins. While the deletion process for such content is being undertaken, the content is no longer visible to other users, but remains subject to these Terms of Use and our Data Policy. After the content is deleted, it may take us up to another 90 days to remove it from backups and disaster recovery systems.
  • Content will not be deleted within 90 days of the account deletion or content deletion process beginning in the following situations: where your content has been used by others in accordance with this license and they have not deleted it (in which case this license will continue to apply until that content is deleted); or

    • where deletion within 90 days is not possible due to technical limitations of our systems, in which case, we will complete the deletion as soon as technically feasible; or
    • where deletion would restrict our ability to:
      • investigate or identify illegal activity or violations of our terms and policies (for example, to identify or investigate misuse of our products or systems);
      • protect the safety and security of our products, systems, and users;
      • comply with a legal obligation, such as the preservation of evidence; or
      • comply with a request of a judicial or administrative authority, law enforcement or a government agency;
    • in which case, the content will be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it has been retained (the exact duration will vary on a case-by-case basis).
  • If you delete or we disable your account, these Terms shall terminate as an agreement between you and us, but this section and the section below called "Our Agreement and What Happens if We Disagree" will still apply even after your account is terminated, disabled, or deleted.

Some additional notes on the Terms and our agreement
Our agreement
  • If any aspect of this agreement is unenforceable, the rest will remain in effect.
  • Any amendment or waiver to our agreement must be in writing and signed by us. If we fail to enforce any aspect of our agreement, it will not be a waiver.
  • We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
  • We will use reasonable skill and care in providing our Service to you and in keeping a safe, secure, and error-free environment, but we cannot guarantee that our Service will always function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. Provided we have acted with reasonable skill and care, we do not accept responsibility for: losses not caused by our breach of these Terms or otherwise by our acts; losses which are not reasonably foreseeable by you and us at the time of entering into these Terms; any offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful, or otherwise objectionable content posted by others that you may encounter on our Service; and events beyond our reasonable control.
  • The above does not exclude or limit our liability for death, personal injury, or fraudulent misrepresentation caused by our negligence.

If a claim or dispute arises out of or relates to your use of the Service as a consumer, both you and us agree that you may resolve your individual claim or dispute against us, and we may resolve our claim or dispute against you, in any competent court in the country of your main residence that has jurisdiction over your claim or dispute, and the laws of that country will apply without regard to conflict of law provisions.

Unsolicited material

We always appreciate feedback or other suggestions, but may use them without any restrictions or obligation to compensate you for them, and are under no obligation to keep them confidential.

Updating the Terms

We may change our Service and policies, and we may need to make changes to these Terms so that they accurately reflect our Service and policies. Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you (for example, through our Service) at least 30 days before we make changes to these Terms and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect. Then, if you continue to use the Service, you will be bound by the updated Terms.

If you do not want to agree to these or any updated Terms, you can delete your account through the settings within the App.
