Food Quirk User Agreement

Updated April 11, 2022

These terms and conditions create the full agreement between Food Quirk and you (the “Terms”).  Please read the Terms carefully.  To confirm your understanding and acceptance and agreement to be bound by the Terms, click “Agree”.

Food Quirk is a distinct online community.

This User Agreement and your conduct make that possible.

Hello, Quirks and people of the Internet! This Food Quirk User Agreement (“Terms”) applies to your access to and use of the websites, mobile apps, widgets, APIs, emails, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) provided by Food Quirk, Inc. (“Food Quirk,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).

Remember Food Quirk is for fun and is intended to be a place for your entertainment, but we still need some basic rules. By accessing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use our Services.

Please take a look at Food Quirk’s Privacy Policy and Community Guidelines, too—it explains how and why we collect, use, and share information about you when you access or use our Services and the conduct that is required for use of the site.

1. Your Access to the Services

Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to create an Account or otherwise use the Services. Additionally, you must be over the age required by the laws of your country to create an account or otherwise use the Services, or we need to have received verifiable consent from your parent or legal guardian.

If you are accepting these Terms on behalf of another legal entity, including a business or government entity, you represent that you have full legal authority to bind such entities to these Terms.

2. Your Use of the Services

Food Quirk grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited license to use and access the Services solely as permitted by these Terms. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you by these Terms.

Except as permitted through the Services or as otherwise permitted by us in writing, your license does not include the right to:

  • license, sell, transfer, assign, distribute, host, or otherwise commercially exploit the Services or Content;
  • modify, prepare derivative works of, disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer any part of the Services or Content; or
  • access the Services or Content in order to build a similar or competitive website, product, or service.

We reserve the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Services (in whole or in part) at any time, with or without notice to you. Any future release, update, or other addition to functionality of the Services will be subject to these Terms, which may be updated from time to time. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services or any part thereof.

3. Your Food Quirk Account and Account Security

To use features of our Services, you may be required to create a Food Quirk account (an “Account”) and provide us with a username, password, and certain other information about yourself as set forth in the Privacy Policy.

You are solely responsible for the information associated with your Account and anything that happens related to your Account. You must maintain the security and confidentiality of your Account.  Food Quirk is not responsible for any losses arising from the unauthorized use of your Account.  Please contact Food Quirk ([email protected]) if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your Account without your permission. We recommend that you use a strong password that is used only with your Account.

You will not license, sell, or transfer your Account without our prior written approval.

4. Your Content

The Services may contain information, text, links, graphics, photos, videos, or other materials (“Content”), including Content created or submitted to the Services by you or through your Account (“Your Content”). We take no responsibility for and we do not expressly or implicitly endorse, support, or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any of Your Content.

By submitting Your Content to the Services, you represent and warrant that you have all rights, power, and authority necessary to grant the rights to Your Content contained within these Terms. Because you alone are responsible for Your Content, you may expose yourself to liability if you post or share Content without all necessary rights.

You retain any ownership rights you have in Your Content but, except to the extent prohibited by law, you hereby grant to Food Quirk the following license to use that Content:

When Your Content is created with or submitted to the Services, you grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, license to use, copy, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, distribute, store, perform, and display Your Content and any name, username, voice, or likeness provided in connection with Your Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed anywhere in the world. You also agree that we may remove metadata associated with Your Content, and you irrevocably waive any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to Your Content.

Any ideas, suggestions, and feedback about Food Quirk or our Services that you provide to us are entirely voluntary, and you agree that Food Quirk may use such ideas, suggestions, and feedback without compensation or obligation to you.

Although we have no obligation to screen, edit, or monitor Your Content, we may, in our sole discretion, delete or remove Your Content at any time and for any reason, including for violating these Terms, violating our Policies, or if you otherwise create or are likely to create liability for us.

5. Third-Party Content, Advertisements, and Promotions

The Services may contain links to third-party websites, products, or services, which may be posted by our users (“Third-Party Content”) as a post, in a comment, in a direct message, or within a profile. Third-Party Content is not under our control, and we are not responsible for any third party’s websites, products, or services. Your use of Third-Party Content is at your own risk and you should make any investigation you feel necessary before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such Third-Party Content.

The Services may not be used to conduct a promotion, including advertisements, a contest or sweepstakes (“Promotion”).
