Locye allows you to openly share with the people around you - as yourself or anonymously. The content you post on Locye is therefore very likely to be visible to members of the public in your area and beyond.
By using our Services, you agree to comply with the Terms, which may be amended from time to time in accordance with the section titled "Amendments" below.
We greatly value your privacy. However, since Locye is intended for publicly sharing your content with the people around you and beyond, there are inherent limitations to the level of privacy that can be afforded without limiting the Services' ability to achieve this principal goal. Nevertheless, we make every effort to enhance your privacy wherever we can.
Below are important disclosures about how you can use Locye to share with others, how we collect and can use your content as well as other information:
We encourage you to use the above information to make prudent decisions.
Locye allows you to post anonymously or with your identity. We allow this in order to enhance your freedom of expression so that you can share more freely with the people around you. For anonymous posts, we have designed Locye so that your identity is concealed from other users.
For the vast majority of our users who use Locye in compliance with the Terms expressed in this document, the level of anonymity provided by Locye's anonymous posts feature is more than sufficient for their intended lawful use.
Locye gives you the option to post content that will automatically self-erase after a day.
We have made efforts to make such collections difficult; however, we make no guarantees, expressed or implied, that your content will always automatically delete after 24 hours.
4. Sharing Your Content
You own and are responsible for all of the content you share on Locye.
For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Locye (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or if it is automatically deleted due to Locye's ephemerality policies.
When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a multi-stage process. You understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be available to others during this period.
When you publish content on Locye, you are allowing everyone, including people off of Locye, to access and use that information, and when posted as yourself, to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
Your feedback about Locye is welcome; however, we may use your feedback without any obligation to compensate you for it just as you have no obligation to offer them.
We do our best to keep Locye safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to keep Locye safe, which includes the following commitments by you:

If we remove your content for infringing someone else's copyright, and you believe we removed it by mistake, we will provide you with an opportunity to appeal.
