Terms of Service (07.03.2017)
Squader UG („Squader“, „our“, „we“) provide the user with a platform which is used to find public or private parties in a defined perimeter.
Please read our Terms of Service carefully. You agree to our Terms of Service by installing our app.
1. Features of Squader
Squader gives the user the opportunity to create a profile and then search within a radius of up to 30 miles for public or private parties created by other squad users.
Each user can create their own parties, deciding whether the party should be public or private. When the user creates a private party, the address is initially hidden. The other users then have the opportunity to apply as a guest at the party. The party address is shown to the user when he has been confirmed as a guest by the host.
Each party has a bulletin board on which the organizer can leave information and which allows users to exchange information about the party.
After each party the guests and the host have the opportunity to rate the other guests and the host in the form of a “thumbs up” or “thumb down”.
The user can create a friend list. Party invitations can be sent directly to users on the friend list. In addition, messages can be sent to all friends.
2. User profile creation
After the installation of Squader, the user is authenticated by his Google-account. No further registration is required within the app. After the first start of the app, however, the user can create his own profile. Only with this profile is the user visible to other users.
The user must choose a profile name. The profile name does not have to be the real name of the user. The profile name may not contain any abusive, obscene, racially or ethnically offensive parts.
The user can upload a profile picture. To do this, the application must allow access to the photos stored on the mobile device. The profile picture does not have to be a picture of the user himself. The user may only use such images which do not affect the personality rights of third parties or the intellectual property of third parties, such as copyrights and trademarks. Furthermore, the profile picture may not contain any abusive, obscene, racially or ethnically offensive parts.
The user has the possibility to post further information about himself in his profile. All this information must be true. It is forbidden to post any abusive, obscene, racially or ethnically offensive texts.
The user must be at least 18 years old to use Squader (or such greater age required in your country for you to be authorized to use our Services without parental approval).
If the user violates the terms for profile creation and design, Squader reserves the right to block the user profile.
3. Party creation
Each user has the possibility to create their own parties. The creation of parties for third parties is expressly forbidden.
The party can have a name. The name of the party may not contain any abusive, obscene, racially or ethnically offensive parts.
The user has to create a party description. In this, the user has to specify what exactly is planned, in which location the party takes place, where the user has to ring etc. The party description has to be true.
The user must specify the address under which the party takes place, the date and time of the party. All information must be true.
If the user wants to organize a public party, he can do so by placing a checkmark in the box next to the “public” note. Afterwards, a note appears that the party’s address is immediately visible to every user when the party is saved. Once a party has been marked as public, it can be deleted as long as no guests already entered the party.
To complete the party creation, the user must press the save button. Only then is the party visible to other users.
