You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. You understand and agree that you will not obtain, as a result of your use of Vibes, any right, title, or interest in or to such content delivered via Vibes or in any intellectual property rights (including, without limitation, any copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, or other rights) in the content. We reserve the right to terminate your Account if you misuse other users' information.
You Must Have Rights to the Content You Post.

Vibes contains content from users and other Vibes licensors. Except as provided within these Terms, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any content appearing on or through Vibes.
You may not display any personal contact or banking information in conversation starters, whether in relation to you or any other person (for example, names, home addresses or postcodes, telephone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit card or other banking details, social media handles). If you do choose to reveal any personal information about yourself to other users, whether via email or otherwise, it is at your own risk. We encourage you to use the same caution in disclosing details about yourself to third parties online as you would under any other circumstances.
Vibes strives to encourage a respectful user experience through our (1) code of conduct, which is integrated into the onboarding experience of every user, (2) our unique moderation system, which is seamlessly integrated into the experience of using the App, and (3) double opt-in, which only allows users to communicate if they have both indicated interest. However, we are not responsible for the conduct of any user on or off of the App. You agree to use caution in all interactions with other users, particularly if you decide to communicate off the App or meet in person. You agree that you will not provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account information), or wire or otherwise send money, to other users. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users. You understand that Vibes does not conduct criminal background checks on its users or otherwise inquire into the background of its users. Vibes makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of users. Vibes reserves the right to conduct – and you agree that Vibes may conduct – any criminal background check or other screenings (such as sex offender register searches) at any time using available public records.
As Vibes is a public community, Your User Content will be visible to other users of the App, so make sure that you are comfortable sharing Your User Content before you post. As such, you agree that Your User Content may be viewed by other users and any person visiting, participating in or who is sent a link to the App (e.g. individuals who receive a link to a user’s profile or shared content from other Vibes Users).
We have the right to remove, edit, limit or block access to any of Your User Content at any time, and we have no obligation to display or review Your User Content.
VI. COPYRIGHT POLICY
Tell us if you think a user has violated your copyright using Vibes, or if you think someone incorrectly reported that you violated his or her copyright.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on Vibes infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a "Notification of Claimed Infringement" requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on Vibes are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
Identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on Vibes;
Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to Vibes should be sent to Successful Business Co, Inc., 584 Castro #782, San Francisco, CA 94114 (firstname.lastname@example.org). Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
