End User Licence Agreement

1. The Manyverse app

1.1. This agreement applies to your use of the Manyverse app, if you downloaded it from Google Play or Apple’s App Store (the “Manyverse app”). It does not apply if you obtained the software from elsewhere.

1.2. The Manyverse app is Free / open source software licensed under the Mozilla Public License 2.0, and it is also available, in both source and executable forms, at https://www.manyver.se/. Nothing in this agreement attempts to alter or restrict your rights under the Mozilla Public License 2.0.

1.3. By using the Manyverse app, you are entering into this agreement. This agreement applies to the exclusion of any terms you supply, provide, or otherwise attempt to incorporate, and it supersedes all previous negotiations, understandings and representations.

1.4. If you do not agree to this agreement, you are not permitted to download or use the Manyverse app. If you have already downloaded the app and do not agree to this agreement, you must delete the Manyverse app immediately.

1.5. In this agreement, “I” means Andre 'Staltz' Medeiros, one of the developers of the Manyverse app.

2. It is free – use it at your own risk!

2.1. The Manyverse app is available free of charge, and you can download and use it without payment.

2.2. I provide the Manyverse app on an “as is” basis, without warranty of any kind, either expressed, implied, or statutory, including, without limitation, warranties that it is free of defects, merchantable, fit for a particular purpose or non-infringing. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Manyverse app is with you. Should the Manyverse app prove defective in any respect, you assume the cost of any necessary servicing, repair, or correction. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of this agreement. No use of the Manyverse app is authorized under this agreement except under this disclaimer.

2.3. Under no circumstances and under no legal theory, whether tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, shall I, or any of the other developers of the Manyverse app, be liable to you for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses, even if informed of the possibility of such damages. This limitation of liability shall not apply to liability for death or personal injury resulting from my negligence to the extent applicable law prohibits such limitation. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this exclusion and limitation may not apply to you.

2.4. This clause survives cancellation or termination of this agreement.

3. This is an app, not a service

3.1. The Manyverse app lets you communicate via the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol.

3.2. You are responsible for how you use the Manyverse app, what you communicate (i.e. your messages, pictures, files etc.), with whom you communicate using it, and how you do so. You must have any and all licences, rights, or other permissions that you require, for what you do with the Manyverse app. This also means that you are solely responsible for backing up your own content; we do not store your content.

3.3. I am not operating, or providing you with access to, a service. I am not responsible for anything you send or receive, or otherwise see or access, via the Manyverse app, and I have no control over, or visibility of, it.

4. Prohibited uses

4.1. You must not use the Manyverse app to threaten, harass, stalk, abuse, disrupt, or otherwise violate or infringe the rights (including but not limited to copyright, rights of privacy and publicity) of others; or to do anything which is contrary to the law in the country in which you are using the Manyverse app, or which could give rise to either or both civil or criminal liability for you or me (or both).

4.2. In particular, because you have downloaded the Manyverse app from Google Play, you must not use the Manyverse app in a way that breaches any of Google’s content policies, including for uses or content which

  • 4.2.1. facilitates the exploitation or abuse of children;
  • 4.2.2. is harmful or inappropriate;
  • 4.2.3. is deceptive or harmful financial products and services; or
  • 4.2.4. facilitates or promotes illegal activities.

5. Your right to use the Manyverse app

5.1. Nothing in this agreement transfers ownership of the Manyverse app to you.

5.2. If, and only if, you comply with this agreement, I grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable licence for the duration of this agreement to download, install, and use the Manyverse app on a device which you own or control solely for your own personal non-commercial purposes. For the iOS version of the Manyverse app, this licence permits you to use the Manyverse app only on an Apple-branded device, and only as permitted by the Apple’s usage rules set out in Apple’s “App Store Terms of Service”.

6. Feedback, comments and suggestions

6.1. I welcome feedback, comments and suggestions relating to the Manyverse app. You grant me a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable licence under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to do whatever I want with your feedback, comments and suggestions.

6.2. This clause survives cancellation or termination of this agreement.

7. Ending this agreement

7.1. You can stop using the Manyverse app whenever you want, and you don’t have to tell me.

    7.4. Termination of this agreement will not affect any rights, obligations or liabilities of either party that have accrued before termination or that are intended to continue to have effect beyond termination.

  • 8.1.3. your breach of this agreement.

9. Variations

9.1. I can vary this agreement at any time. If I make any changes to the terms of the agreement, I will take reasonable steps to tell you, and I may require you to affirmatively accept the new terms before continuing to use the Manyverse app.

9.2. I am always looking for ways to improve the Manyverse app. Sometimes, this means adding new features. Sometimes, this means taking away or discontinuing features, or changing the way features work. I can make any changes I wish, at any time, without notice to you.

10.1. Neither party will be liable to the other for any delay or failure in the performance of that party’s obligations caused by events outside that party’s reasonable control.

11. Governing law and jurisdiction, and disputes

11.1. This Agreement, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed at all times in accordance with the laws of Finland and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Finland that by law have jurisdiction over such a dispute.
