Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hey Conference grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Hey Conference reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

The design of the HeyConference Service along with HeyConference created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, except Status Submissions and Conferece/Event information submission (as defined below), and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to Hey Conference, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Europe and foreign laws and international conventions. The Service is provided to you AS IS for your information and personal use only. Hey Conference reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Service other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of Status Submissions of third parties obtained through the Service for any commercial purposes.
A. The HeyConference Service allows HeyConference users to submit status text, Conference/Event related information, profile photos and other communications submitted by you, as well as the automatic submission of your "last seen" status (collectively, the "Status Submissions"). These Submissions may be hosted, shared, and/or published as part of the HeyConference Service, and may be visible to other users of the Service who have your mobile phone number in their mobile phone and which you have not expressly blocked and/or participanting in the same Event/Conference as you. For clarity, direct messages, location data and photos or files that you send directly to other HeyConference users will only be viewable by those HeyConference user(s) or group(s) you directly send such information; but Status Submissions and Conference/Event related information submission may be globally viewed by HeyConference users that have your mobile phone number on their smartphone or have registered in the same Event/Conference or are in your list of Favourite Contacts. A good rule of thumb is if you don't want the whole world to know something or see something, don't submit it as a Status Submission to the Service. The submission of your 'last seen' status is done on an automatic basis. As clarified in the following section, you retain your ownership rights in your Status Submissions. You understand that whether or not such Status Submissions are published, Hey Conference does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
B. You shall be solely responsible for your own Status and Conference/Event Information Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because HeyConference is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of HeyConference, and HeyConference makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Hey Conference to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status/Conference/Event data Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the Status/Conference/Event data Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status/Conference/Event data Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status/Conference/Event data Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service. To be clear: you retain all of your ownership rights in your Status/Conference/Event data Submissions, but you have to have the rights in the first place. However, by submitting the Status Submissions or Conference/Event status information to HeyConference, you hereby grant HeyConference a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission in connection with the HeyConference Service and Hey Conference's (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the HeyConference Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status and Conference/Event information on the HeyConference Service a non-exclusive license to access your Status/Conference/Event data Submissions through the Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a Status Submission and Conference/Event information from the HeyConference Service.
C. In connection with Status Submissions and Conference/Event information, you further agree that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Hey Conference all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Hey Conference or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (v) impersonate another person; (vi) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vii) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (viii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
D. Adult content must be identified as such. Hey Conference does not endorse any Status Submission or Event/Conference information submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Hey Conference expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission. Hey Conference does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights via its Service, and Hey Conference will remove all content and Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission if properly notified that such content or Status Submission or Conference/Event information submission infringes on another's intellectual property rights. Hey Conference reserves the right to remove content and Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission without prior notice. Hey Conference may also terminate a user's access to the Service, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason, including being annoying. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a Status Submission and Conference/Event information submission removed from the Service more than twice. An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized Hey Conference employees, agents, subagents, superagents or superheros. Hey Conference also reserves the right to decide whether content or a Status Submission and Conference/Event information submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. Hey Conference may remove such Status Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
E. You understand that when using the HeyConference Service you will be exposed to Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission from a variety of sources, and that Hey Conference is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission, and that such Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission are not the responsibility of Hey Conference. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Status Submissions and Conference/Event information submission that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Hey Conference with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold Hey Conference, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the HeyConference Service.

YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE HEYCONFERENCE SERVICE SHALL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
