ASKfm Terms of Use

Click here for Terms of Use effective before October 11, 2016.

Effective Date: October 11, 2016

These Terms of Use (the “TOU”), govern your access to and use of the website and/or mobile application that link to these TOU (the “Services”) that are operated by Europe Limited (“ASKfm,” “we”, “our”, or “us”) and you agree to only access or use the Services in compliance with the TOU.

If there’s anything you don’t understand in the TOU (or anywhere else on the Services), please contact us using the contact information below.

If you are under the age of majority in your country, and are not an emancipated minor (in countries that permit this) you must have your parent’s or guardian’s consent to enter into these TOU and to use the Services and by using of the Services you acknowledge that you have received such consent.

1. Your Acceptance of the TOU

By accessing or using the Services (whether or not you are a registered member), you, your heirs, and assigns (collectively, “you”) are entering into a binding legal agreement with Europe, Ltd., an Irish company with registration number 551873 and its registered office is at 6th Floor, South Bank House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Ireland is a member of the European Union, so the ASKfm is subject to Irish and EU law.

By accessing, using, registering for or receiving any of the Services, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of these TOU and to the ASKfm Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy, which are incorporated herein by reference. If you do not accept and agree to the TOU then you must not access or use the Services.

2. Eligibility and Registration

a) Age Requirements. By accessing or using the Services, you affirm that you are either over the age of majority in your country, an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with the terms and conditions in the TOU. In any case, you affirm that you are at least 13 years old. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to access or use the Services. If we become aware that you are using the Services even though you are under 13 and not permitted to do so, we will deactivate your account and attempt to block you from accessing the Services.

b) Compliance with Laws. You are responsible for making sure you follow all laws and regulations in the country in which you live when you access and use the Services. By using the Services, you are confirming that you have not been convicted of, nor are you subject to any court order relating to, assault, violence, sexual misconduct or harassment.

c) To use some parts of the Services, you may be required to register for an account with ASKfm by providing certain information, including your name, email address, and a password. You agree to provide true and accurate information and to update it as necessary to keep it accurate. If you provide us with false information, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account. You may also be able to register to use the Services by logging into your account with your credentials from certain third party social networking sites (e.g., Facebook). You confirm that you are the owner of this social media account and that you are entitled to disclose your social media login information to us. You authorize us to collect your authentication information, and other information that may be available on or through your social media account consistent with your applicable settings and instructions.

Only you are allowed to access your account. You must keep your password confidential and, other than sharing it with your parent or guardian if you are a minor, you should not tell anyone your password or let anyone else access your account. (Parents and guardians might also find some useful information here). Sharing your password might lead to all of your posts, messages and personal information being leaked or someone impersonating or pretending to be you. If you don’t keep your password confidential or give it to anyone other than your parent or guardian, we are not responsible for anyone accessing or using your account, including reading or sending messages from it. If you think that someone else might be using your account, you must let us know immediately using the contact information below. You should also immediately change your password. We may terminate your account or block you from accessing the Services if you break the rules on keeping your password secure.

To provide you with ease of access to your account, we may implement technology that enables us to recognize your device and provides you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype your password when you revisit the Services.

Non-registered users are able to access only the parts of the Services that are publicly available and do not enjoy all of the privileges of being a registered member. They are, however, subject to the TOU.
