It’s pretty simple. If you want to make use of the service that we have spent so long crafting then you must agree to respecting Pebbls and abiding by these terms. There isn’t anything underhand or sneaky in here but if you don’t agree with any of the details below please do not continue using our services, app, and website – perhaps find another super cool travel blogging platform (good luck with that 😉).
We are not going to be harvesting your data or passing on your contact details – we promise. The data that you provide will be used for the sole purpose of offering you the best possible experience while using Pebbls.
In the text below we’ll be using some wording such as “you” and “your” – this means we are talking about you, the person who will be using Pebbls. When we refer to “we”, “our” and “us”, this is referring to the creators of the Pebbls platform. We also use the terms “post”, “posts”, and “content” – this refers to anything that you, or another user, may add to Pebbls including location data, photos, videos, and text.
We are based on the beautiful little island of Guernsey and as such any disputes of these terms and conditions will be contested under Guernsey law. Our data is stored within secure data centres in the UK.
Pebbls is a project of passion. Like geeky, adventurous artisans we have spent considerable time carefully sculpting and re-sulpting every beautiful line of code of Pebbls. This means that we, and those third parties whose code we have incorporated into Pebbls (such as Leaflet JS for the map viewer), own the intellectual property of all materials on Pebbls. Any content uploaded to Pebbls, such as text, photos and videos, remain the ownership of its original creator. Any content uploaded by you must be your own work and not be in breach of any copyright infringement – this includes any soundtracks or audio that you may use within your videos – you can find plenty of royalty free soundtrack resources by using your favourite search engine.
Please do not:
Republish material from Pebbls.
Sell, rent or sub-license material from Pebbls.
Reproduce, duplicate or copy material from Pebbls.
Redistribute content from Pebbls.
This agreement is valid from 19th April 2021.
We do not moderate or filter content before it is posted to Pebbls and so it might happen that a user posts content which is inappropriate or against Pebbls’ guidelines. These posts are not representative of our views or opinions and we have no control over what users choose to post. We do however have the facility for users to report for review any content that they feel is inappropriate, against our guidelines, or in breach of law. We will remove any content that we deem inappropriate and the offending user may be permanently banned from Pebbls and reported to the appropriate authorities. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, Pebbls shall not be liable for the posts or for any liability, damages or expenses caused and/or suffered as a result of any use of and/or posting of and/or appearance of the content on Pebbls.
We wish to keep Pebbls a safe and friendly place and so we reserve the right to monitor all content and to remove anything which can be considered inappropriate, offensive or causes breach of these Terms and Conditions.
We have plenty of other things to be doing with our time though so don’t leave all of the responsibility on us. When posting to Pebbls you agree that:
Your posts do not invade any intellectual property right, including without limitation copyright, patent or trademark of any third party.
The posts do not contain any defamatory, libelous, offensive, indecent or otherwise unlawful material which is an invasion of privacy.
The posts will not be used to solicit or promote business or custom or present commercial activities or unlawful activity.
