Terms and Conditions
Last Updated: 5 June 2023
These Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") govern your relationship with the Chaptter mobile application (the "Service" or “Chaptter”) operated by WEGLUE S.L. ("us", "we", or "our").
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using our Chaptter mobile application.
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
Our Service is intended to be used by groups of Users who are closely related to each other by personal links and trust relations. Illustrative examples may comprise members of a family or a group of close friends.
Our Service provides a long-term content storage solution to organize, share and easily access content of personal nature such as videos and photos. Users can access that content inside of the Service or can download or export their Content to their local devices or other services and applications.
Our Service allows to arrange, combine, edit, and modify individual pieces of Content posted by one or more Users to form so called “chapters”, which can themselves be exported and shared with other Users or externally to the Application.
Our Service allows Users to set up, manage and/or join groups of Users who can post, link, store, share and otherwise make available to other users certain information, text, videos, graphics, or other material ("Content").
Our Service incorporates messaging features including but not limited to the exchange of text messages among members of a group in the form of Chats. These messaging features are intended to facilitate the exchange of Content by Users and they do not constitute the primary function of the Service.
You acknowledge that it constitutes an essential feature of our Service that other Users of the groups to which you post Content will have the possibility to visualize, edit, alter, export and share your Content, which includes making your Content, or edited versions of your Content, available to other persons, either inside the Chaptter application or through other external channels.
To use Chaptter, you must register by creating an Account.
You must be at least 16 years old to use the Service.
You can create an Account directly with Chaptter by registering with an email address.
You are identified by other users with your Name, Family Name and a profile Picture. You are not allowed to provide intentionally misleading identification data.
You shall abstain from including usernames from other social networking or similar online services, domain names or web URLs in your public profile unless explicitly requested to you by the Service.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Service and for any activities or actions that occur under your password, whether your password is with our Service or a third-party service.
You are not authorized to sell, transfer, license or assign your account, or any account rights, to any other third party.
With the exception of people or businesses that are expressly authorized to create accounts on behalf of their employers or clients, you agree that you will not create an account for anyone other than yourself.
You shall abstain from accessing the Service, or trying to access the Service, through an Account that does not belong to you.
Creating and Joining Chapters
A “chapter” is essentially a content collection (typically a list of photos and videos) that can be reproduced as a video and can be accessed by one or more Users.
Upon joining a chapter, you acknowledge that the user acting as Administrator (the User that has set up the chapter) has full powers to manage the Users belonging to that chapter as well as the Content that is associated to it. Administrators can, among other functionalities, invite Users to the chapter, remove/ban Users from the chapter, remove pieces of Content, or even entirely remove the chapter and its associated content.
As chapter Administrator, you can invite other Users to join your chapter by direct invitation (inside the application) or through an external invitation link, or invitation code. Depending on the configuration of each chapter, other users that have joined the chapter may as well invite other users to join.
Invitation links and invitation codes are intended to be distributed to Users or potential Users in a targeted manner. We advise Administrators to abstain from advertising Chaptter invitation links or invitation codes in a highly public and/or uncontrolled manner, for example by posting them on the public internet.
You shall abstain from trying to get connected to chapters to which you have not been invited to. In the event that you, either inadvertently, by accident or on purpose, join a chapter to which you have not been invited to, you shall leave that chapter immediately upon becoming aware of the circumstance.
You are responsible for the Content that you upload to the Service, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness.
By uploading Content to the Service, you acknowledge that such Content becomes instantly and automatically accessible to all current and future members of the chapters to which you have posted such Content. You acknowledge that Users who are or may become members of the Groups to which you have posted Content may edit, modify, combine, export and share your Content. Chaptter will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Content that you post to the Service by these Users.
You retain any and all of your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Service and you are responsible for protecting those rights. You represent and warrant that: (i) the Content is yours (you own it) or you have the right to use it and grant us the rights and license as provided in these Terms, (ii) your Content is not subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Chaptter, and (iii) the posting of your Content on or through the Service does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person.
You are not allowed to upload violent, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing or hateful content via the Service.
You are not allowed to upload Content of commercial or advertising nature without express, written consent from us, or unless you post such Content through dedicated platforms or channels established for this purpose by Chaptter.
You also acknowledge that the Internet may be subject to breaches of security and that the submission of Content or other information may not be secure.
You acknowledge that we may, at our sole discretion, prevent your Content from being displayed to other Users, including without limitation in case that some other User or Users have reported such Content as inappropriate or offensive.
In case that your Content is reported as inadequate or offensive by other User or Users, we reserve the right to prevent the reported Content from being displayed to other Users according to automatic rules and algorithms without having to examine ourselves the nature of the Content. In such cases, your reported Content will not be automatically removed from our Servers and will remain accessible to you. Repeated posting of Content deemed to be inappropriate or offensive by other Users may constitute a breach of these Terms and may lead to Termination of the Service.
Handling of your Content by other Users
Unless otherwise stated by you, other Users belonging to the same chapters that you do will have the possibility to export, edit and share the content that you post to those chapters.
If you prefer that Users belonging to certain chapters that you have joined do not have the possibility to export, edit or share your Content, you can indicate this circumstance by establishing the adequate Privacy Settings within the Service. You acknowledge that these Privacy Settings do not constitute a warranty that other Users may not have access to your Content or bring your Content out of the application and into the public domain through different means, including without limitation the manipulation of their local devices, the capture of your Content while being displayed, the interception the data communication between their devices and our Servers or any other technical means.
You acknowledge that even if you remove the Content from our Service, external copies that may have been produced by other Users before the removal of the Content, including without limitation local copies cached in their devices or copies already exported outside the Service, fall entirely outside our control.
Handling Content of Other Users
Exercise common sense and your best judgment if you intend to post or make public Content that belongs, or partially belongs, to other Users. Please consult with those other Users before publicly posting their Content if you have doubts on whether they may prefer their Content not to be posted publicly.
Interacting with other Users - Conduct Guidelines
You are solely responsible for your interaction with other users of the Service, whether online or offline. You agree that Chaptter is not responsible or liable for the conduct of any User.
You are expected to behave respectfully, responsibly and prudently when interacting with others, including when you submit or post Content or any personal or other information.
You acknowledge that Chaptter does not verify or grant any warranty, explicit or implied, about the identity of its Users. In particular, Chaptter does not carry out a verification that the names and pictures of our Users correspond to their true identities.

In the case that you experience unwanted or what you deem as inadequate behavior from other User or Users, you may employ the range of functionalities incorporated in our Service to protect you from such behaviour. These functionalities include blocking other Users, removing Users or inadequate Content from chapters (in case that you are Group Administrator), reporting Content as inadequate or offensive and withdrawing from unwanted Groups.
Chaptter reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other Users. In the event that you experience serious offenses through our Service, we encourage you to rely on local authorities and/or organized associations to protect your rights.
