This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (“Statement,” “Terms,” or “SRR”) derives from the MTN Uganda’s digital platforms Principles, and is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with the Pulse Website & App, its functionalities, MTN products and services, which we call the “Services”. By using or accessing the Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 13 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that help you understand how Pulse works.
Because Pulse provides a wide range of Services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product, or service. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with this SRR, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.
You own all of the content and information you post on Pulse, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, nationwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Pulse (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless you’re content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Pulse, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Pulse, but you understand that we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).
We do our best to keep Pulse safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to keep Pulse safe, which includes the following commitments by you:
Pulse users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
We respect other people’s rights, and expect you to do the same.
You will not post content or take any action on Pulse that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law.
We can remove any content or information you post on Pulse if we believe that it violates this Statement or our policies.
If we remove your content for infringing someone else’s copyright, and you believe we removed it by mistake, we will provide you with an opportunity to appeal.
If you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate.
You will not use our copyrights or Trademarks or any confusingly similar marks, except as expressly permitted with our prior written permission.
You will not post anyone’s identification documents or sensitive financial information on Pulse.
We currently provide all pulse Services free of charge on the MTN Uganda Network.
In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you will update your account information on Pulse within 48 hours to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person who acquires your old number.
We’ll notify you before we make changes to these terms and give you the opportunity to review and comment on the revised terms before continuing to use our Services.
If we make changes to policies, guidelines or other terms referenced in or incorporated by this Statement, we may provide notice on the Site Governance Page.
Your continued use of the Pulse Services, following notice of the changes to our terms, policies or guidelines, constitutes your acceptance of our amended terms, policies or guidelines.
If you violate the letter or spirit of this Statement, or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, we can stop providing all or part of Pulse to you. We will notify you by email, or/and SMS or at the next time you attempt to access your account.
You may delete your account or disable your application at any time. In all such cases, this Statement shall terminate.
You will resolve any claim, cause of action or dispute (claim) you have with us arising out of or relating to this Statement or Pulse in the courts of law of the Republic of Uganda, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such claims. The laws of the Republic of Uganda will govern this Statement, as well as any claim that might arise between you and us, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
If anyone brings a claim against us related to your actions, content or information on Pulse, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to such claim. Although we provide rules for user conduct, we do not control or direct users’ actions on Pulse and are not responsible for the content or information users transmit or share on Pulse. We are not responsible for any offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful or otherwise objectionable content or information you may encounter on Pulse. We are not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user of Pulse.
WE TRY TO KEEP PULSE UP, BUG-FREE, AND SAFE, BUT YOU USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE ARE PROVIDING PULSE AS IS WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT PULSE WILL ALWAYS BE SAFE, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT PULSE WILL ALWAYS FUNCTION WITHOUT DISRUPTIONS, DELAYS OR IMPERFECTIONS. PULSE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS, CONTENT, INFORMATION, OR DATA OF THIRD PARTIES, AND YOU RELEASE US, OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST ANY SUCH THIRD PARTIES. IN SUCH CASES, PULSE’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
