Welcome to ChatMemoir!
These terms of service ("Agreement") govern your use of the ChatMemoir Application ("ChatMemoir" or the "App") which is a registered trademark of Bodaty, LLC, ("Bodaty"), and the services, products, features, apps, technologies, and software integrated and used therein, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply.
The “Bodaty Terms of Service” applies to your use of Bodaty's products and services. Your use of ChatMemoir is therefore subject to the Bodaty Terms of Service. Since ChatMemoir uses deyaPay (the payments service and accounts system offered by Bodaty), your use of ChatMemoir is also subject to the terms relevant to deyaPay and deyaPay Account Services, “Bodaty deyaPay Payments Terms of Service.” In addition, the following notice describes our terms that are specific to ChatMemoir. All of these terms and related privacy policies can be found at https://ChatMemoir.com/policy.html.
Bodaty may amend these Terms at any time by posting a revised version on Bodaty's website or through the ChatMemoir App.
By using ChatMemoir you expressly certify that you are over 16 years old, and have verified the same through the age verification services utilized when you purchase the ChatMemoir App. If you are under 16 years old, your parent or legal guardian must provide consent. You are prohibited from using ChatMemoir if you are under 13 years old.
1. Our Services
Our mission is to give people the power to learn from their grandparents (and other family and friends) and share their wisdom and love. ChatMemoir provides a mechanism to record your biography and share it with grandchildren (and others), who can ask to view it through ChatMemoir application. To help advance this mission, we provide the Products and Services described below to you:
- Empower you to communicate about what matters to you: There are many ways to communicate with friends, family, and others about what matters to you - for example, sharing biographies, autobiographies, status updates, photos, videos, and stories with ChatMemoir. We also have developed and continue to explore new ways for people to use technology to create and share more expressive and engaging content through ChatMemoir.
- Provide you with the optional ability to enhance and improve the biography created through the ChatMemoir phone app, by giving you access to request and buy (at an additional charge) the services of a Personal Writer/Biographer who can start where the app finished and edit the biography with their human insight and abilities as writers.
- Combat harmful conduct and protect and support our community: People will only build community on ChatMemoir if they feel safe. We employ dedicated teams around the world and develop advanced technical systems to detect misuse of our Products, harmful conduct towards others, and situations where we may be able to help support or protect our community. If we learn of content or conduct like this, we will take appropriate action - for example, offering help, removing content, blocking access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement. We share data with other Bodaty Services when we detect misuse or harmful conduct by someone using one of our Products.
- Use and develop advanced technologies to provide safe and functional services for everyone: We use and develop advanced technologies - such as conversational user interfaces, artificial intelligence, and machine learning systems - so that people can use our Products safely regardless of physical ability or geographic location. For example, technology like this helps people who have visual and other impairments understand what is in content shared on ChatMemoir. We also build sophisticated network and communication technology to help more people connect to the internet in areas with limited access. And we develop automated systems to improve our ability to detect and remove abusive and dangerous activity that may harm our community and the integrity of our Products.
- Research ways to make our services better: We engage in research and collaborate with others to improve our Products. One way we do this is by analyzing the data we have and understanding how people use our Products.
- Provide consistent and seamless experiences across the Bodaty Company Products: Our Products help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that are important to you. We design our systems so that your experience is consistent and seamless across the different Bodaty Services that you use. For example, we use data about the people you engage with on ChatMemoir to monitor safety and to make it easier for you to connect with them, and we enable you to communicate with your community. Another example is how we seamlessly integrate with deyaPay, Bodaty's payments system, to provide an easy, fluid and convenient payments experience for our customers when your share content in ChatMemoir.
- Enable global access to our services: To operate our global service, we need to store and distribute content and data in our data centers and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence.
