Statement of Rights and Responsibilities


This agreement was written in English (US). To the extent any translated version of this agreement conflicts with the English version, the English version controls. Since /Goose works in conjunction , through and above Social Networks, we derived the following paragraphs from the most diffused Social Network related scripts, making changes as appropriate in order to comply as much as possible with their policies. Analogous effort was made tryng to comply to the italian law and the relevant EU laws.

Date of Last Revision: November 15, 2014.

This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities ("Statement," "Terms," or "SRR") is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with /Goose and underlying other Social Networks. By using or accessing /Goose, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with the relevant Section below. /Goose will not intentionally do anything in contrast to the policies of the underlying Social Networks.

/Goose tries to be fair with all the Social Networks in anyone's set and will not impose additional policies to them since it works on their public API - please refer to each Social Network for their current policies. Any data eventually cached within /Goose mobile App is retained within the granted period of time given by each Social Network individual policy. /Goose own data pertaining to the registered /Goose End User is retained until the End USer is deregistered.

1. Privacy

Your privacy is your most precious resource over time and you should care on it when using Social Networks. /Goose does not weaken the underlying Social Networks privacy since it works on their official API. /Goose own data is limited and will maintained within our /Goose Data Use and Retention Policy.

2. When you delete IP content, if it is residing as well on /Goose, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer.
