Terms & Conditions

Welcome to Gingerbook! 

It’s great to have you here. By using Gingerbook, you agree to these Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) and the other policies that we link to here and on the Platform.

These Terms (and the policies we link to) apply to your use of our website (https://gingerbook.com/), apps, and any other software or features provided in connection with our services (collectively the “Platform” or “Gingerbook”). When we say “we”, “our” or “us” in these Terms, we’re referring to Gingerbook Pty Ltd and our group companies. 

 

Please read these Terms carefully and reach out if you have any questions. If you don’t agree with them, please don’t use Gingerbook. 

 

Your account

To create an account and become a Gingerbook user, you must be at least 18. If you’re creating an account on behalf of someone else, you must have their permission to do so. You’re responsible for your account and using it in a lawful way. 

When you create an account, you agree to comply with these Terms and that you’re (i) over 18, and (ii) legally able to enter these Terms with us. You must provide us with accurate info about yourself — if anything changes, please let us know so we can update your details.

 

If you’re using Gingerbook on behalf of a business or individual, you agree that you’re authorized by them to act and agree to these Terms on their behalf.

 

You’re responsible for anything that happens to your account, so keep your login details and password safe and don’t share them with anyone. If you think your account has been compromised, please contact us immediately. 

 

You must not assign or transfer your account to someone else, or use your account (or allow it to be used by anyone) in a way which in our reasonable opinion, causes damage to Gingerbook or our reputation, or infringes another’s rights or applicable laws and regulations.

 

Your username

The username you choose must be appropriate for everyone and cannot infringe on someone else’s rights.

We know the username you choose is very important to you. But it’s also important that your username is appropriate for all audiences and doesn’t infringe anyone’s rights, including intellectual property rights (such as copyright and trade marks) (“IP Rights”). 

 

You can’t use the name of another person (such as a celebrity), brand, or company, have a username that is offensive, vulgar or obscene, or create an account with a username that you have no connection with just to profit from it in the future (known as “Domain Squatting”). 

 

If any of these issues occur over your username, we’ll consider the circumstances reasonably and may require you to change it (and we may reassign it to someone else). If you refuse, we may suspend or cancel your account. If someone claims that your username infringes their IP Rights, they’ll need to complete an Intellectual Property report and you’ll have the chance to then issue a Counter-Notice. 

 

If you’ve not signed in or added new links or had any traffic to your account in the last 6 months we may reclaim or reassign your username (but never without contacting you first).

 

Your content — what is and isn’t allowed

We love the variety of content that our users post on Gingerbook! However, we want to ensure that everyone who visits the Platform can do so safely. That’s why we have our Community Standards.  

Our Community Standards set out what content is and isn’t allowed on Gingerbook, so please make sure you follow them, otherwise, we may suspend or permanently remove your account.

 

When we talk about your “content”, we mean the text, graphics, videos, links, and any other materials you add to your Gingerbook profile. You’re responsible for your content and you warrant that:

 

  • it’s yours or if you’re using third-party content, you have all of the rights needed to post it on Gingerbook (and to let us use it in accordance with these Terms);
  • none of your content will violate the privacy, publicity, IP, or other rights of anyone else;
  • your content will not (i) be misleading or deceptive, intended or designed to misinform, or likely to misinform a reasonable person, (ii) cause either of us to break any laws or legal obligations, and (iii) bring us into disrepute or damage our reputation; 
  • your content doesn’t contain any viruses or other harmful code, files, or programs designed to interrupt or damage the functionality of the Platform or any other software, hardware or device; 
  • you will not use, or authorize others to use, automated scripts or other scraping tools to collect information from your profile or the Platform;
  • you won’t post any unauthorized advertising, solicitations, or endorsements on Gingerbook; and
  • all of your content complies with the Community Standards. 

 

Since laws and regulations differ from country to country, we may ban content that might be legal in some countries, and to take whatever action we think necessary, including removing content or restricting access to it or the Platform. 

 

Your content — what we can do with it

We love your content and want to show it off. When you post content on Gingerbook, you give us the right to display, use, and share it.

 

When you post content on your profile, you grant us a license to (i) use, publicly display, distribute, modify, adapt and create derivative works of such content; and (ii) use your name, image, voice, photograph, likeness and any other personal attributes in the content; on the Platform and in our marketing in all media (such as our social channels and any other advertising). This license is worldwide, royalty-free, and perpetual, which means we can use your content anywhere in the world, without paying you fees, for as long as we like. You agree that you have all third-party rights necessary to post the content on Gingerbook and to grant us this license. 

 

You’ll retain all of your rights to your content. But keep in mind that your content will be publicly accessible, and may be used and re-shared by others on Gingerbook and across the internet. 

 

Please don’t share personal info that you don’t want visible to the world, and never post social security numbers, passport details, or similar info that could cause harm in the wrong hands. You may only post personal info relating to others where you have their consent and have kept a record of it.

 

We don’t have to monitor the accuracy, reliability, or legality of your content, but we may choose to do so. We may modify, remove or restrict access to content at any time in line with these Terms or apply a sensitive content warning to content that we deem unsuitable for all audiences.
