13. Users in the European Union

If you’re a user in the European Union, you should know that myScoop is the controller of your personal information. Here is some additional information we would like to bring to your attention:

Your country only allows us to use your personal information when certain conditions apply. These conditions are called “legal bases” and, at myScoop, we typically rely on one of four:

13.1. Contract.

13.1. One reason we might use your information is because you’ve entered into an agreement with us. (E.g. when you purchase a Scoop and accepted our Payment Privacy, we need to use some of your information to collect payment and make sure we show your information to the right people at the right place and time).

13.2. Legitimate interest.

13.2.1. Another reason we might use your information is because we have—or a third party has—a legitimate interest in doing so. (E.g. we need to use your information to provide and improve our services, including protecting your account, delivering your Scoops, providing customer support, and helping you with content we think you’ll like). Because most of our services are free, we also use some information about you to try and show you ads you’ll find interesting. An important point to understand about legitimate interest is that our interests don’t outweigh your right to privacy, so we only rely on legitimate interest when we think the way we are using your data doesn’t significantly impact your privacy or would be expected by you, or there is a compelling reason to do so.

13.3. Consent.

13.3.1. In some cases we’ll ask for consent to use your information for specific purposes. If we do, we’ll make sure you can revoke your consent in our services. Even if we’re not relying on consent to use your information, we may ask you for permission to access data like contacts and location.

13.4. Legal obligation.

13.4.1. We may be required to use your personal information to comply with the law, like when we respond to valid legal process or need to take action to protect our users. Our policy has to notify Scoopers when we receive legal process seeking their account information.

13.4.2. If you live in the European Union.,you are a consumer and habitually reside in a territory within the European Union, the laws of your territory will apply to any claim you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms of Use, and you may resolve your claim in any competent court in your territory that has jurisdiction over the claim. In all other cases, you agree that the claim must be resolved in a competent court in the United Kingdom that has jurisdiction over the claim and that the laws of the United Kingdom will govern these Terms of Use, without regard to conflict of law provisions.

 

14. Guidelines for using myScoop

We aspire to boost Scoopers’ creativity to vlog differently, empower them to become indispensable sources, maintain their copyrights, and get paid for their original mobile content.

Here are some important guidelines for using myScoop.

Copyrights & Recognisable People or Properties

You must have written permission from an individual or property owner allowing the use of that person's likeness or property (for example, a private home, a place of business) for commercial purposes. It is also common, that many places that require ticketed access (zoos, museums, sporting events) do not permit shooting for commercial reasons without consent. Upon reports from concerned people, myScoop will delete content that's a violation in these regards.

Under myScoop’s Terms of Use and Community Guidelines, you can only post content on myScoop if it doesn’t violate the intellectual property rights of another party. The best way to help make sure that the content you post to myScoop doesn’t violate copyright laws is to only post content that you’ve created yourself. Make sure the content you submit doesn't contain copyrighted or trademarked materials. Upon reports from concerned people, myScoop will delete content that's a violation of the exclusive rights of a creator. This also includes less obvious elements present in a file – branded clothes, logos on drinks and food, technology brands, etc. When shooting, make sure they're not visible.

Abusive Behaviour and Hateful Conduct

Putting into consideration that context matters when evaluating abusive behaviour and determining appropriate enforcement actions. Factors we may take into consideration include, but are not limited to whether (i) the behaviour is targeted at an individual or group of people, (ii) the report has been filed by the target of the abuse or a bystander, (iii) and/or the behaviour is newsworthy and in the legitimate public interest.

Abuse: You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behaviour an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.

Hateful Conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious belief, age, disability, or serious disease.

Hateful Imagery and Display Names: You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behaviour, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.

Adult Content

We prohibit accounts that promote or distribute pornographic content, even as a joke. Breastfeeding and other depictions of nudity in non-sexual contexts are accepted.

Child Sexual Exploitation

You may not promote child sexual exploitation. As we have zero-tolerance child sexual exploitation policy that instantly makes us reach law enforcement forces to take the needed actions to stop it.

Nudity or Sexually Suggestive Content Involving Minors 

Never post, save, or send nude or sexual content involving people under the age of 18 years old — even of yourself. This includes adding sexual drawings or captions to a Scoop, even as a joke.

Illegal Content 

Don’t use myScoop for any illegal activity.

Invasions of Privacy

Don't take Scoops of people in private spaces, like someone’s home, a bathroom, dressing room, or locker room, without their knowledge and consent. If someone is in your Scoop and asks you to remove it, please do.

Threats & Violence

Never threaten to harm a person, group of people, or property. Don't post Scoops of gratuitous violence.

Harassment & Bullying

We don’t tolerate bullying or harassment on myScoop, even as a joke. Don’t Scoop with the intention of making someone feel bad. If someone blocks you, it’s not okay to contact them from another account.

Impersonation

Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not, include, but not limited to your friends, family, celebrities, brands, or other organizations.

Hate Speech

Don't post content that demeans, defames, or promotes discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or serious disease.

Terrorism

We prohibit content that promotes terrorism. This includes, but is not limited to threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes. 

Spam

Everyone hates spam. Don't create misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails in order to increase views. It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages. We have zero tolerance for spam, misleading metadata, and scams. Spam accounts will be banned immediately without any prior warning. 

Misusing Missions

Camera missions on myScoop are available to help you grab mobile videos or photos from places you do not present in. Don't create misleading or illegal descriptions. The description has to comply with the laws and public policies of the selected location. Don't subject the safety of your scooper to any kind of risk. Make sure that the location you are selecting is totally safe to access and shooting is permitted. Don't use myScoop missions for any illegal purposes, including but not limited to espionage activities. It's not okay to send large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive missions to scoopers. Don't send missions to scoopers to ask for nudes, even as a joke. We have zero tolerance for misusing missions. 

Suicide or Self-harm

You may not promote or encourage suicide or self-harm. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self-harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person and providing resources such as contact information for local mental health associations. 

Harassment & Cyber bullying

You are not allowed to post abusive videos and/or comments on myScoop. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.

Right of Reply

You have the right to defend yourself against public criticism in the same venue where it was published on myScoop. This allows any individual or legal body that has been named or designated in any media on myScoop to publish their version of the facts. They only need to register a free account on myScoop, in case they do not yet exist, and click the REPLY icon located under the scoop.

Violations

We respect other people’s rights, and you must do the same. So, if you find any Content to be abusive or infringing, you must immediately inform myScoop via email on contact@myscoop.co.

The complaint must contain: i) a description of the Content, ii) a description of where on the Platform the Content can be localized, iii) a legal proof of your point of view, iv) and your contact information.

Also, if you are not a User, yet, found any violation that infringe the above Guidelines or directly infringe your personal privacy, copyrights, etc... (E.g. you or your property has been captured by a Scooper without your approval), please don’t hesitate in contacting us on contact@myscoop.co.

If you violate the above Guidelines, we may, remove the offending content, terminate your account, or notify law enforcement. If your account is terminated or suspended for violating our Terms of Use or these Guidelines, you may not use myScoop again, and you may not be able to cash out your myScoop wallet. Please take these Guidelines seriously and honour them in the spirit in which they are intended. We will do our best to enforce them consistently and fairly, and ultimately, we’ll try to do what we think is best in each situation.
