Please read these Terms carefully because they are a binding agreement between You and Netvillage, (“Netvillage”,"Company", or “We”). This Agreement applies to all customers, visitors, and others who access our Service and those that access the mobile app our Service creates (“Users”).
Generally speaking, our
responsibility to each of our customers is to act reasonably and we
expect the same from our customers. Websites crash, the Internet
crashes, non-delivery of messages or any force majeure could occur
without notice. Also Apple or Google could decide an app is no longer
'viable' to be in their stores or change policy that would remove an
App. Basically things happen and we'll make reasonable efforts to fix
stuff and keep the lights on. But we can't guarantee anything, and we
aren't responsible for stuff that happens, with our service our
someone else's. Specifically, our Products and all included content
are provided on an "as is" basis without warranty of any
kind, whether express or implied. In fact, we specifically disclaim
any and all warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for
a particular purpose, and non-infringement, and any warranties
arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade. The entire risk
as to the quality and performance of the software is with you. Think
of it this way, we are building the best service we can for you but
we can't promise it will be perfect. We're not liable for various
things. If you think we are, let's try to work it out like
And for your part we expect you to be reasonable as well, not using our service for sending out spam, child porn, running guns, drugs, etc., you know the drill. And we won't force you into an iron-clad long term contract, if you're not happy we don't want to keep you. And the same goes in reverse, if we're not happy, we are able to move on as well.
We'll also upload your app to the app stores for you, but your accounts on the App Stores will be your accounts, not ours. So you're not locked into us, but you'll have to pay Apple/Google a yearly fee for the privilege (currently at $99 or $25 respectively). We'll provide you with the information you need to login and manage your own account or we can help as needed. The fees for the first year are paid through by us. After that you are responsible for paying them directly yourself, but we will send you a reminder before they are due, so your app remains active.

That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
· the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
· if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
· you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
· the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
· the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
· the Content is not pornographic, libelous or defamatory, does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
· your mobile application is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
· your mobile application is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company; and
· you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials.
Meaning, if you push stuff to your customers that gets you in trouble, that's on you, not us.
1.3 By submitting Content to Snaplets for inclusion on any services or applications provided by Snaplets, you grant Snaplets a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your mobile application. If you delete Content, Snaplets will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Service, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Snaplets has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Snaplets’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in Snaplets’s reasonable opinion, violates any Snaplets policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Service to any individual or entity for any reason, in Snaplets’s sole discretion. Snaplets will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

At times We upgrade our network and hardware. We also take steps to make sure the connections remain stable and reliable. Occasionally this will require "downtime" to the network. We will, whenever possible, notify you about this downtime ahead of time. We will always to the best of our ability perform routine maintenance at the most convenient time for all parties
