Content that members provide( << Member Content>>) (this category includes content provided by our merchant partners and other users of the app and/or website); and
Content that you upload and provide ( << Your content>>).
In spite of the fact that we want our users to be able to express themselves as much as possible, there are some contents that are restricted which:

is obscene, pornographic, violent or otherwise may offend human dignity;

This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies, or the law.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
a. Our content
When a Service requires or includes downloadable software, this software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available. Some Services may let you adjust your automatic update settings.
bixr grants each user of the Service, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable license to use, modify and reproduce the content, under the following conditions:
you shall not use, reproduce, modify, distribute or store any content for commercial use, without prior written permission from blixr, or from the copyright holder;

redistribute content from blixr (unless content is specifically made for redistribution);
hyperlinking to our content;
you shall use our Content for lawful purposes only.
This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by blixr, in the manner permitted by these Terms. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer, or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions, or you have our written permission.
b. Member Content
Member Content belongs to the user who posted the content and is stored on our servers and displayed via the app at the direction of the user providing the Member Content.
You do not have any rights in relation to other users' Member Content, and you may only use other blixr users' personal information to the extent that your use of it matches blixr’s purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your account if you misuse other users' information.
c. Your Content
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give blixr (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to blixr). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service.
Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
Our automated systems analyse your content (including communications) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.
If you have a blixr account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on blixr or on third-party applications connected to your blixr account in our Services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your blixr account.
You acknowledge and agree that if you contribute, provide or make available any Content to the Service, you hereby grant blixr a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable right and license to access, use, reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, based on Your Content, in whole or in part, in any media, for the purpose of operating the Service.
5. blixr’s role
a. Listing Service
Unless otherwise stated in the contract between blixr and the Experience Organiser (the Merchant), blixr is not the organiser or owner of the events listed for sale or registration on the Service.
blixr provides the Service, which allows Experience Organisers to list and promote their events, but all sales are, by default and in origin, made by the respective Organiser listed on the applicable event page.
blixr also acts as the Organiser’s limited agent solely for the purpose of using its third party payment providers to collect payments made by customers on the Service, with respect to an event and passing such payments through to the applicable Organiser.
It is the Organiser’s sole obligation to ensure that any event page posting on the Service and the nature and conduct of the underlying event meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described in any event page posting are actually delivered in a satisfactory manner.
b. Payments from Customers
All payments made by Customers to attend the Experience of Organisers will be made through the blixr applications. blixr may use third party payment processing partners to process the transaction as Organiser’s limited payment agent.
For Merchants, blixr operates a commission model and is in line with the selected Service Plan via the Merchant Dashboard. The selected Service Plans are governed under this Agreement.
