It is also very likely that you will store data in the cloud, especially if you expect to store a large amount of user-generated content. It is important to use a serious cloud storage provider and ensure that its storage protocols comply with local data protection laws. If they will take any of these acts in violation of your conditions, be sure to exclude liability for the terms and conditions of sale. It is customary to include a “suspension” or “end” clause in which you can terminate the provision of your application services to a user at any time if they violate your terms and conditions or disturb other users. This may seem to abdicate the responsibility that can put both apps in breach of Google Play or Apple policies. If neither service violates these conditions, it is because they give themselves a wide margin of appreciation to ban users and terminate their accounts. This type of abusive behaviour is offensive, but often requires a specific mention. Google Play and the Apple App Store are committed to preserving their respectable environments, so all developers who use their platform must have policies to manage that content. Your terms and conditions of sale must not only specify the rules for users to have standards of conduct, but you must also give the reasons for their application. In the end user license agreement and the terms of use (a combined agreement), there is no doubt about what is prohibited. The Aaptiv agreement describes offensive content and provides an email address to which users can submit reports: Apple explicitly mentions “moral harassment” when it deals with user-generated content in its policy.

It recognizes that this is a potential problem before entering its monitoring requirements for developers: it makes the terms and conditions of use indispensable when it comes to an application or website that allows user-generated content. Developers need a way to monitor content and at least a general termination clause to be able to impose rules by deleting content or banning users. Create a DMCA process when you encourage users to create content. What is user-generated content? Some examples of user content may be text, for example. B in a collaborative history writing site; Images in an image-sharing app; Cards or changes in a game or pins on a Pinterest card. These terms of use of user-generated content (“UGC terms of use”) describe the following conditions: including Personalized Beauty Discovery, Inc., a Delaware company d/b/a IPSY and its associated companies (IPSY) may use the content you have created and published publicly, as specified and described in the message that IPSY sent you via the social media platform referring to these terms of use of the UGC. Such content is called “user-generated content.” User content is a unique problem because users are more discreet and many developers don`t check content in advance. User-generated content covers a wide range of content: blogs, wikis, chat articles, chats, tweets, podcasts, digital images, videos, audio files, advertising and any other form of user-generated and posted media are covered by “user-generated content.” Especially in the areas of intellectual property, the legal conditions to which your users must consent may differ from the terms and conditions of sale.
