2/ Our Application
2.1 / Proper functioning, security and accessibility
You can be assured that we offer a user-friendly Application that is safe for every User. We therefore take all reasonable measures necessary to ensure the proper functioning, security and accessibility of our website. Nevertheless, we cannot provide every User with absolute guarantees and Users must consider our measures a best-efforts obligation.
Every use of the Application shall, at all times, take place at the User’s own risk. This means that we shall not bear any liability for any loss or damage arising from disruptions, interruptions, harmful elements or defects to the website, regardless of whether this is attributed to force majeure or unusual causes.
We are entitled to at all times limit and/or temporarily interrupt access to our website, in part or entirely, without the need to provide any advance notice. We shall, in principle, only do this if circumstances so warrant, but this is not an absolute condition.
2.2 / Content on the Platform
The content of the Application is, for the lion’s share, determined by our Users. We take great care regarding the information on our Platform, which means that we take all measures required to keep our Platform as complete, accurate and up-to-date as possible. In line with this, we may make any changes, additions or deletions to the Platform and its contents at all times.
Nevertheless, we cannot provide any guarantees with regard to the quality of the information on our Platform. The information may therefore not always be complete, sufficiently accurate and/or useful. We are therefore not liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage suffered by a User due to the information contained on our website.
Should any content on our Platform constitute a violation of applicable legislation and/or a violation of the rights of third parties and/or is simply found to be unacceptable, we kindly request that you notify us of this to enable us to take suitable measures. This shall enable us is to delete this information, in whole or in part.
Some of the content on our Platform can be downloaded, and every download from our Platform shall, at all times, take place at the User’s own risk. We cannot be held liable for this action, and any loss or damage arising from a loss of data or damage to the computer system shall fall under the full and exclusive responsibility of the User.
2.3 / What we expect from you as a User
The User also bears a certain amount of responsibility with regard to the manner in which we offer our Application. This means that the User shall be obliged at all times to refrain from any actions that could have a detrimental impact on the proper functioning and security of the website and on its use. The website may, for example, not be used to circumvent our business model and/or for the large-scale collection of information from other Users.
It is therefore advisable to refrain from using our Application for the distribution of content that could cause damage to other Users of the Application, for example hazardous software such as computer viruses, malware, worms, trojans and cancelbots. This extends to the distribution of unsolicited and/or commercial messages via the Application, such as junk mail, spam and chain letters.
We reserve the right to take all action needed for the purpose of recovery, for us and for our Users, both at the judicial and extrajudicial level. The User is solely and entirely liable in the event that his/her actions and/or behaviour effectively cause any damage to the Application and to the other Users. In that event, the User shall indemnify Social Seeder against all possible claims arising from such a situation.
3/ Links to other websites
The content of our Platform may contain a link, hyperlink or framed link to third-party websites or other forms of electronic portals. A link neither automatically construes a relationship between us and such a third-party website, nor that we, implicitly or otherwise, are in agreement with the content of this website.
We maintain no control over these third-party websites and are not responsible for the secure and proper functioning of the link and its ultimate destination. The moment a User clicks on the link he/she leaves our Platform and can no longer hold Social Seeder liable for any loss or damage whatsoever.
As these third-party websites do not offer the same guarantees as Social Seeder we advise Users to carefully read the General Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statements of these other websites.
4/ Intellectual property
Creativity deserves to be protected, as does our Platform and its content. This protection is provided through intellectual property rights and is granted to all entitled parties, i.e. Social Seeder and third parties. Content is meant to be understood as the very broad category of photos, videos, text materials, ideas, notes, sketches, articles and so forth. All this content is protected by copyrights, software rights, database rights, drawing and design laws and other applicable intellectual and other property rights. The technical nature of our Application itself is protected by copyright, software rights and database rights. Every trade name, every brand and every distinctive mark we use on our Application is equally protected by the applicable trade name rights or trademark rights.
Every User is granted a limited right to access, use and copy our Platform and its content. This right thus granted is non-exclusive, non-transferable and can be used solely within a personal, non-commercial framework. We request that our Users refrain from making use of and/or amending the intellectual property rights as described in this Article without the consent of the entitled party. Social Seeder attaches considerable value to its intellectual property rights and has taken all possible measures to guarantee their protection. Every infringement of existing intellectual property rights shall be subject to prosecution.
5/ Processing of personal data
The information provided by the User is mandatory to grant the User’s access to our Platform. For this reason it is critical that these details are correct. Providing incorrect or false personal details shall be considered an infringement of these General Terms and Conditions. The personal details of the User shall be processed exclusively in accordance with the applicable Privacy Statement published on our website.
6/ General provisions regarding the General Terms and Conditions
We reserve the right to modify, expand, limit or terminate our Platform and the accompanying services at all times, without any prior notice to the User being required and without this being subject to any form of compensation for loss or damage.
If we, in addition to the above, discover any infringement of our General Terms and Conditions by the User, we shall have the right to take all possible disciplinary or remedial measures. This entitles us at all times to delete or modify the content and/or data of a User, in part or in full, deny the User access to the website, and delete his/her User profile. No prior notice shall be required for any of the above. Such measures may never lead to our liability being called into question, nor to any form of compensation for loss or damages.
These general terms and conditions shall be administered and interpreted exclusively in accordance with Belgian law. Any disputes relating to or arising from the use of Social Seeder or agreements concluded with Social Seeder shall be brought before the competent courts of Mechelen.
If the validity of one or more of the above provisions of these General Terms and Conditions is compromised in any way, this shall not affect the validity of any of the other provisions of this agreement. In such a case we shall have the right to modify the relevant provision into a valid provision that reflects the meaning and nature of the original provision.
The titles used in our legal documents are always and exclusively for illustrative purposes. The User shall as such not derive any legal value from them.
