The User discloses and shares data, text, content, and images that affect him/her and his/her children via the Service on his/her own initiative. We will process the User’s personal data in accordance with the Privacy & Cookie Policy. We cannot be held responsible for any infringement of image rights and other intellectual property rights, honour, reputation, or confidentiality regarding the User or his/her children’s privacy that may arise due to the dissemination of information to the extent described in these Terms and our Privacy & Cookie Policy. 

4.2 Code of conduct and approval of audit functions 

Preglife Connect does not tolerate any kind of racism, sexism, or harassment. The equal value of all human beings is a matter of course. Everyone shall enjoy the same rights and opportunities, regardless of gender, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability, sexual orientation, or age. 

Posting on the forum for purely commercial purposes is not allowed, except where it is explicitly stated. 

The quality of the Services expected of both Preglife Connect and its Users means that certain codes of conduct, as regards the conduct of all Users, are complied with by respecting third-party rights and applicable laws and regulations. In order to meet these requirements for individual responsibility and ethics, we allow all Users to report all content (of any format), behaviours, or comments of another User that appears to be in violation of applicable laws and regulations or these Terms, regarding the purpose of the Service, third-party rights, or general morality. 

Therefore, all Users must approve and accept that information that they provide, as well as their behaviour or comments made through the Service, may be reported by other Users and may be subject to moderation and/or control by us in the light of objective criteria. If this report or verification reveals that a User has violated any applicable laws or regulations or has breached their obligations under these Terms and code of conduct, we may exclude that User by deleting his/her Account, in accordance with §5.3, below. Depending on the behaviour or comments made by the User, the moderation team may decide to block all new registrations of the person concerned. 

4.3 Rights that you give us 

Preglife Connect may access, store, and disclose information from your Account and shared content if required by law or in good faith that such access, storage, or disclosure constitutes a legitimate interest, including: (a) following legal processes; (b) executing the agreement; (c) responding to claims that any content infringes the rights of third parties; (d) responding to your customer service requests; or (e) protecting the rights, property, or personal safety of Preglife Connect or any other person. 

Any software that we provide to you can automatically download and install upgrades, updates, or other new features. In many cases, you can adjust these automatic downloads through the device settings.

  • §6, §7, §8, §9, and §10, in their entirety

5.3 Our termination of your Account or deletion of certain content 

Preglife Connect can terminate your Account at any time without prior notice if we believe that you have breached these Terms. 

You also understand and agree that we may monitor or review all content that you publish as part of our Service. We may delete all content, in whole or in part, that in our opinion violates these Terms, applicable law, our code of conduct (see: §4.2) or may damage the reputation of the Service. 

We want to keep the App forum open to development according to our Users’ needs and not overly limit its use; at the same time, we take great care to create a safe and supportive atmosphere. Therefore, we will not tolerate any form of personal attack or other obvious violations of our code of conduct (see: §4.2). This means that we may delete posts that go against the purpose and regulations that we set around the forum – and in severe cases close your Account. 

 

  1. Third Parties and Marketing within the App

6.1 Advertisements and links 

When we allow you to use the Service, you agree that we, our subsidiaries, and our third-party partners, place advertising within the App. 

The Service may include advertisements and promotions offered by third parties and links to other websites or resources. Preglife Connect is not responsible for the availability (or lack thereof) of such external websites or resources. 

We remind you that visits and use of third-party websites are governed by their terms of use and that such visits and uses are made entirely at the User’s own risk. Preglife Connect cannot be held responsible for the terms or actions of such third parties. 

All problems related to a link or advertisement must be reported to us using the contact information in §10 of these Terms. 

6.2 Feedback and suggestions

  1. Personal Data

Personal data belonging to Users is processed in accordance with our Privacy & Cookie Policy. 

 

  1. Applicable Law and Dispute

These Terms shall be interpreted and applied in accordance with Swedish law. If you reside in a country other than Sweden, there may be mandatory consumer protection laws that provide you additional rights in addition to those specified in these Terms and in the Swedish consumer legislation, and in these cases such mandatory provisions take precedence. 

If it is not possible to reach an out-of-court solution regarding a dispute related to these Terms, the issue should instead be taken up in a general court in Sweden, unless the User resides in a country other than Sweden and foreign mandatory consumer protection laws provide a mandatory forum for consumer disputes. 

Furthermore, the User can also submit a complaint to the European Commission’s online dispute resolution platform, found here: http://ec.europa.eu/odr. The European Commission will forward the User’s complaints to the competent national ombudsmen. 

 

  1. Changes to Preglife Connect’s Terms

We may periodically change these Terms as we, for example, add new features and Services, as we improve our current offerings, and as technologies and laws change. You can determine when these Terms were last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page. Any changes will become effective upon our posting of the revised Terms. We may provide notice to you of any changes. This notice may be provided by email, by posting the revised Terms on our Sites or App, or elsewhere in the Services, or by other means prior to the change becoming effective, consistent with applicable laws.
