Terms of Use

We at GroupTube run a platform called GroupTube and would love you to use it. GroupTube’s service is completely free. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on in your GroupTube chat groups. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear in your group.

If you find a GroupTube group that you believe violates these Terms of Use, please contact us at hello@group.tube.

Our services are not directed to children younger than 13, and access and use of our services is only offered to users 13 years of age or older.

Your GroupTube Account

When you create a group on GroupTube, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your group, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur in the group and any other actions taken in connection with the group. You must immediately notify GroupTube of any unauthorized uses of your group, your GroupTube account, or any other breaches of security. GroupTube will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Responsibility of Contributors

If you operate a group, participate in a group, post content into a group, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, "content"), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using GroupTube, you represent and warrant that your content and conduct do not violate these terms.

In particular, it is not allowed to share the following content in a GroupTube group:

  • Content that shows or advertises illegal activities
  • Content that violates a copyright of others
  • Content that is not appropriate for the youngest member of a group

If you delete content or a group, GroupTube will use reasonable efforts to remove it from GroupTube, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, GroupTube has the right (though not the obligation) to, in GroupTube's sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or group due to prolonged inactivity, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in GroupTube's reasonable opinion, violates any GroupTube policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of GroupTube to any individual or entity for any reason.

Responsibility of Visitors

GroupTube has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to our services, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material's content, use, or effects.

You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. Our services may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights of third parties, or the downloading, copying, or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. GroupTube disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of our services or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.

Content posted on other Websites

We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the websites and webpages to which GroupTube links, and that link to GroupTube. GroupTube does not have any control over those websites and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a non-GroupTube website, GroupTube does not represent or imply that it endorses that website. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. GroupTube disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-GroupTube websites and webpages.

GroupTube permits its users to upload and share their original content while also providing the option to link to external content. Ensure that any content you upload or link to complies with GroupTube's terms of use and privacy policy. If you believe that material uploaded, located or linked on GroupTube violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify GroupTube. GroupTube will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. GroupTube will terminate a visitor's access to and use of the website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of GroupTube or others.
