We are Urban Engines. You are you.
If you agree to and abide by the terms, you can use our services on your devices for your personal use only.
If we change these terms, we’ll let you know, and if you still use the services, it means you are OK with them.
You can use the services anonymously, but for some features, like posting content, you need to create an account. You can create an account through us or through a connected third-party. Either way, you’re responsible for your account.
If you give us feedback on our services, through comments or email, for example, it means we can incorporate it into our services without credit or compensation to you.
It's up to you to use your common sense, obey laws, and use the services safely and responsibly, especially when you're driving. Among other things, this means no typing, swiping, or glancing at our stuff while you're operating a vehicle. We mean it.
If you submit content to the services, like information, pictures, etc., we don’t claim ownership of that. The content you contribute is your responsibility. You need to make sure you have permission to post it — and that we can use it in our services — for your protection and ours.
If you want to remove content you can, but we cannot guarantee that or be responsible for copies that may still be accessible on our Services or elsewhere on the web.
When you agree to use our services and we give you a limited license to do so, you agree to use them well. This means we hope you enjoy them. It also means you won’t use them to break any laws, you won’t try to steal stuff or take stuff apart — generally, you agree not to be a jerk and not ruin it for us or for everyone else. If you don’t use our services well, we may suspend or terminate your account, or get the appropriate authorities involved. You are also responsible for the costs if we get sued because of your use of our services.
You agree to use our services “as is,” which means we don’t make any promises or guarantees about how or whether they will work, and there are significant limits to the damages you can recoup from us. And yes, according to the law we are supposed to shout this section in all caps at you because in theory you will notice it and understand it better instead of your eyes glazing past it.
Through our services, you may access and/or interact with third parties, such as app stores and other websites, for which we are not responsible. In addition, their terms of service may be different and you are responsible for your compliance with them.
Either of us can end this arrangement at any time if we’re not happy, but certain terms here we’ve agreed to will still be in effect.
These are some standard legal terms of the contract. If we have to use these, we’ve got problems. We ask that you please contact us before resorting to legal recourse like arbitration, the procedure for which is also described in here.
Do you have a question, feedback, or a problem? Please contact email@example.com.
Do we have a problem? Here is our process for resolving it from a legal standpoint.
Disclaimer: These are not our Terms of Service. This is just a handy reference for understanding our Terms of Service and its key terms. This document has no legal value, and its contents do not appear in the actual license. Please read the full Terms of Service for the exact terms that apply.
By using any of the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to these Terms, do not use the Services.
We may modify these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on our website or such other URL as we may choose from time to time, the “Site”) or through other communications. It’s important that you review the modified Terms because if you continue to use the Services after we’ve let you know that the Terms have been modified, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms then you may no longer use the Services. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
If you want to use certain features of the Services (such as submitting User Content, as described below) you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the Services or through your account with certain third party social networking services such as Facebook (each, an “SNS Account”). If you choose the SNS Account option we’ll create your Account by extracting from your SNS Account certain personal information such as your name and email address and other personal information that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access.
It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information to keep it accurate, complete, and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

You and Company agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Company otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Dispute Resolution section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Dispute Resolution section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/
Unless you and Company otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Company submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the Limitation of Liability section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Company will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Company will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Changes to Terms or Services section above, if Company changes this Dispute Resolution section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the Last Updated date below or in the date of Company’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Company in accordance with the provisions of this Dispute Resolution section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

Urban Engines' privacy-related goal is to maintain your trust and confidence when we handle information. We strive to achieve this with clear communication, meaningful choice, and responsible information stewardship.
When you use our services, we use information about you and other users to make those services work beautifully and efficiently for you and all our users. We receive that information about you in two ways when you use our services:
No one can guarantee it, but we try very hard to keep your data secure.
Your data may not reside in the same country where you are.
If you click on third party sites, they may get your data, and they may have different policies than ours.
We only share your personal information we have in the following circumstances:
You give your consent to this sharing.
We need to provide it for legal reasons or to prevent harm.
We use aggregated data to improve our existing services and build new ones. We share this data externally publicly, and with our partners to let them know how we are doing.
When you create an account we collect certain personal information, such as your full name, email address, and password. We may collect other personal information, such as your age, gender, occupation, or transit card or device number(s), should you supply that to us. In addition, if you sign into our Service using a third party, such as Facebook or Twitter (each an “SNS Account”), we may gain access to other personal information that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to use. We don’t receive or store passwords for any of your SNS Accounts.
When you use a location-enabled Service, we may collect, process, and store information about your location. For example, we may use GPS signals sent by your mobile device. We also may use other techniques for determining location, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation or using sensor data from your device.
Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as "Log Data"), including both account holders and non-account holders (either, a "User"). Log Data may include information such as a User's Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a User was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a User clicked on and other statistics. We use this information to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to improve and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users' needs and preferences. We also use the IP Address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your devices using mechanisms such as browser web storage (such as HTML 5) and application data caches.
When you use an electronic device like a tablet, PC, or phone to access our Services, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your device, which uniquely identify it. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system, or other software, or data sent to the device by applications or other services. We may also collect your phone number if you provide it in order to send SMS notifications available to you when you use our Services.
Some of our Services allow you to take photos, make comments, tag your location (“Markers”), and create other materials to post to the Services (“User Content”). You can share your piece of User Content publicly, or keep it private. It is important to remember that once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be indexable by search engines or re-shared by others. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, and potentially on other websites, applications, and services (“Third Party Services”).
We want to make our Services work beautifully and efficiently for you and all other users — both now and in the future. We may use your information to help you access and use our Services more easily and to develop and provide you valuable new products and features. Some of these features may include personalized content or offers of interest to you, such as incentives.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, including any updates or changes to them. We may also use your information to update you on our partners’ services. If you wish to opt out of marketing messages, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use information collected from cookies and your device information to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our Services. For example, by saving your settings or favorite locations, we’ll be able to have those available to you the next time you visit.
We will not share personal information or User Content outside of the Company except as described below:
We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of the Company when we have your consent to do so.
Information that we collect from our users is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your personal information and User Content may be disclosed or transferred to the third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
We may share personal information with companies, organizations, government or law enforcement officials, or individuals outside of the Company if we believe that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of information is reasonably necessary: (i) to enforce our Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; (ii) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process, or enforceable governmental requests, such as subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (iii) to protect our property, rights, and safety and the property, rights, and safety of third parties or the public as required or permitted by law; and (iv) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical, including detection, prevention, or other management of fraud, security, or technical issues.
We may use anonymized, aggregated, non-personally identifiable information that we collect through our users' use of the Services to maintain and improve our Services as well as build new services and applications. We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners. For example, we may share usage trends with industry analysts.
We work hard to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to your personal information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure.
We will retain your data and User Content for as long as you use the Services or as otherwise in compliance with applicable law. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our Services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems as required by law.
You can stop all collection of information by the mobile applications easily by uninstalling them, deleting your accounts on our website and not accessing them. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network. You can also request to opt out via email, at email@example.com.
Our Services are not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information and User Content of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
