Stigen Terms of Service

Hej!
Welcome to Stigen’s Terms of Service. Please read this carefully before using our services, because this is a contract between you and Incredible Department 2033 AB the owner of Stigen (“Stigen”, “we or “us”), applicable when you use our sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content provided by Stigen, globally, in existence now or in the future. Pew.

First, we believe that the world is not mapped yet. That our personal place stories are being lost in the current quest to automate everything.
Stigen’s mission is to provide everyone with simple tools that allow them to map their own world and to share their place stories with others.
That’s what we’re doing. But first, read this legal text carefully so you don’t feel tricked in any way. Hugs.

And please, if you have any questions whatsoever feel free to email us at any time, hej@stigen.co, and we’ll do our very best to help.

These terms are a binding agreement

We may modify these Terms at any time

We can change these Terms at any time. If the changes are minor, we’ll let you know before the changes go into effect. The notice will designate a reasonable amount of time (the “Notice Period”) after which the new terms will go into effect. If you don’t agree to the new terms, please request a deletion of your account within the Notice Period. If you do not delete your account within the Notice Period, your content and use of the site will be subject to the new terms going forward.

If you paid through the Google Play or iTunes store you may change your Payment Method through the corresponding store account. No refunds or credits will be provided by Stigen other than as set forth in these Terms. If your payment provider determines that there are fraudulent charges on your account resulting from use of your Payment Method at the Services please contact us straight away hej@stigen.co

Fees

In order to access certain functionality of Stigen you may be required to pay Enthusiast membership fees. Enthusiast membership fees along with any required taxes may be paid on a monthly or annual basis. All membership fees are payable in advance.

You agree to pay the membership fees and other charges you incur in connection with your Stigen account whether on a one-time or subscription basis. Stigen reserves the right to increase membership fees any associated taxes or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable advance notice.

Cancellation

If you signed up through the Google Play or iTunes store you may cancel your Stigen Enthusiast membership by downgrading through the corresponding store. The cancellation of a membership will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle.

When your Enthusiast membership ends your account will remain and become a free membership. You can renew your subscription at any time without opening a new accountalthough the Enthusiast membership fees may have increased. You can delete your account at any time.

Your content

By posting content to Stigen, you give us permission to use your content to provide what we think is a good Stigen experience, including, without limitation, storing, displaying, reproducing, and distributing your content. This may also include other user’s reposting or saving your content within Stigen or through the Stigen services.

We promise to never sell your content to third parties without your explicit permission.
By publishing on Stigen, you agree to allow others to view your content.
We don’t pre-screen user content, but we have the right (though no obligation) to refuse, remove or delete any content you post to Stigen for any reason.

When removing maps from your library or removing spots from your maps we delete all content associated with it except the spots name and geographic position as this is used as a reference in different scenarios (for example when a Visitor have checked off a spot that is later removed, we still need to reference this spot on the Visitor's timeline).

You are free to request a complete deletion of your content from us at any time, though there may be a delay in removing it from public view due to operational requirements. If you request a deletion of your account or content, it may be permanently unrecoverable.



Note also that when you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, or repost it, making your content part of a social conversation that can’t later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others. It’s the internet after all. We hope you understand.

You’re responsible for the content you submit to Stigen and assume all risks associated with it, including anyone else’s reliance on its accuracy, or claims relating to intellectual property or other legal rights. By posting, you represent that you own or have the necessary rights to post the content on Stigen, and that doing so doesn’t conflict with any other licenses you’ve granted.

We may modify our Services at any time

We may change, end, or restrict access to any aspect of the service, at any time, without notice. Why? We try to make Stigen better everyday. Sometimes features flop or things get broken and we need to fix them.

Stigen Privacy Policy

We all need privacy. This policy is here to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have.

If you wish to have any information provided to us exported or deleted, we will do our best to help. Please ping us hej@stigen.co

We collect information when you give it to us

When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, geographical positions, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using Stigen on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to Stigen, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

We get technical information when you use our products

Log data
When you use Stigen, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited that had Stigen features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Stigen, and cookie data.

Cookie data
Depending on how you’re accessing our products, we may use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Stigen account or your browser) or similar technologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preferences or other Stigen settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit Stigen. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Stigen account (including personal information about you, such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not.

Device information
In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Stigen on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. This to design Stigen to work on any type of device for more people. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Stigen and our users. Our main goal is to get everyone outside and explore the surrounding landscape or city.

We also use the information we collect to offer you interesting content, including:
Suggesting maps, spots or places you might like.
Showing you promoted maps you might be interested in.

How and when do we share information?

When you create public content on Stigen, like maps, spots, paths, areas, comments, photos, videos, etc, anyone can view it. You may also provide us with profile page information that anyone can view.

If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Stigen; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy.

We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, advertisers, or others. For example, we may tell an advertiser on Stigen how many people interacted with content they shared, or the percentage of people who click on content after viewing it.
