At any time, we may moderate or curate these spaces accordingly as as we see fit for any reason(s).

184.108.40.206 Shared Pets and Links [contents]
When sharing a widget pet, a shared link may only be used once. You should use in care in sharing your widget pet. Once shared, a shared widget pet cannot be unshared. The only way a link may be removed is if the linked user chooses to delete their MyWidgetPet™ account or the shared pet. Of course, you may always delete any widget pet on your device and account at any time.
220.127.116.11 Privacy & Shared Content Disclaimer [contents]
WidgetPet Friends™ play may feature shared user generated content spaces (e.g. messages, photos) with your associated care buddies. We believe this personal content between you and your associated care buddies should be private. We use end-end encryption, and all associated such contents when stored in databases are protected and encrypted at rest. Only you and your care buddies own the keys to this content. We only see details like the the user’s alias or profile ID content was created by, date stamps, etc. or “meta-data” properties for purposes of facilitating the Service, database indexing, etc.
Given the end-end encryption of private content (e.g. Messages, Memories) in these shared spaces, we have the limited ability to moderate any private care buddy shared play spaces. Any content you share or post should be appropriate for WidgetPet and should not be offensive, illegal, graphically obscene, etc. – WidgetPet is not the place for such content. Any content you post or share may persist indefinitely. You are always responsible for what you share. Shared content visibility may be dependent on various conditions, and all content may not always display. Inappropriate content may be automatically flagged or filtered. You have the ability to remove any content you create and share yourself. You may also report others’ content if you deem inappropriate, or in violation of these Terms. If we see content has been reported, please know we still cannot know what the content necessarily is, as we described above, and if we choose to remove such we are doing so based on the good faith assumption of the reporting users’ judgement. By posting or sharing content you understand and give H’Appile Interactive/Lumos Apps permission to moderate and remove any content for any reason in our sole discretion. Users’ content that is frequently reported, appear to be spamming or abusing the shared play space, etc. may be deemed as a violation of these Terms also and result in user restriction(s).

WidgetPet coins are not real currency or assets and have no monetary value or worth outside of WidgetPet. Similarly, WidgetPet coins are non-transferable and cannot be removed or transferred from WidgetPet to any other device or app.
5.5. Custom User Photo Backgrounds [contents]
You may choose to use a custom photo or image from your photo library as your widget pet’s widget home background, etc. Since photos may be personal and special to you, we always keep photos private and local to your device — these are always yours and only you retain rights to them. We do not collect or have access to any of your photos or images you share in the app in any way.
5.6. MyWidgetPet™ & Account [contents]
MyWidgetPet™ is our premier subscription service featuring many great features of WidgetPet. With MyWidgetPet you may create a login and “alias” tied to your profile and to enable use of shared play environments with friends, etc. Please note, your alias is public and may be viewed in shared play spaces and should be appropriate for such. Certain aliases may not be allowed, and we always reserve the right to moderate any aliases we deem not appropriate for the Service in our sole discretion. Aliases may only be changed periodically. You always have the right to delete your MyWidgetPet™ account at any time. A MyWidgetPet™ account is not necessary to use other “non-shared play” features of the MyWidgetPet™ service (e.g. Memories™, ad-free play). Your MyWidgetPet™ account is not the same as the overall MyWidgetPet™ subscription. Any subscription must be managed on your device and through the App Store, please refer to section 7 for details on specifically managing.
5.7. Augmented Reality and WidgetPet Memories™ [contents]
The App may offer augmented reality (AR) experiences. You may be promoted to share camera permissions or access on your device to enable these game play experiences. In some cases the App may use Apple’s “TrueDepth” front facing camera api for tracking or updating movement (e.g. placing your widget pet on your shoulder or in your hand, and tracking gestures, etc). We never collect, store, share, transmit, etc. any tracking data from AR sessions. This is only used real-time by the App for enhancing your AR experience while playing.
Additionally, we believe any captured memories and or photos are personal and should remain private or be shared only when you choose. Therefore, any memories or photos you capture in the App using the AR features (e.g. WidgetPet Memories™) are only stored locally in the App’s container on your device by default. If the functionality exists, and you have enabled, you may optionally choose to also share your memories in the Service with other Care Buddies on the same widget pet as described previously in 18.104.22.168.
5.8. Push Notifications [contents]
The Service may employ an optional push notification feature using Apple’s Push Notifications Service to provide notifications to you. Examples of notifications may include updates like when your widget pet needs care, is missing you, etc. We always try to carefully tailor notifications to keep them as relevant and meaningful as possible, however we make no guarantee of availability or success of any push notifications at any time.
You are responsible for managing the push notification settings on your device and can grant or revoke authorization at any time in the settings on your device. Push Notifications are designed to be only displayed if your devices’ settings allow. In some cases, the App may also provide additional means of controlling notifications. We are not responsible for unwanted or nuisance push notifications you receive for any reason; this includes as a result of your failure to disable or turn off notifications on your device and/or in the App, degraded api or server performance, bugs, etc.

You and H’Appile Interactive/Lumos Apps agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all disputes, controversy, complaint, or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, its enforcement or interpretation, or because of an alleged breach, default, or misrepresentation in connection with any of its provisions, shall be (1) first subject to a pre-arbitration period of 14 days of informal good-faith conversation between disputing parties to reach a suitable resolution or remedy complaint, and only then if a dispute still exists at the end of this period shall it proceed solely to (2) final and binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association(“AAA”) in Erie County, Pennsylvania and/or France in accordance with the AAA Rules for Commercial Arbitrations “AAA Rules”. The arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of the parties; if none, then by striking from a list provided by AAA and subject to the AAA Rules. The period of informal resolution (1) shall commence only once all involved parties are adequately notified of the dispute or matter at hand (either via certified mail or written/recorded acknowledgement), and then shall only continue to accrue while discussions are active. Notice may be provided to us via the details in section 33. Any communication(s) or requests during the informal period shall be responded to within 24 hours, and if not, accrual of the informal period shall pause until material response is received by the opposing party. A response must be material and cannot simply be to advance the period (1), e.g. must be “in good-faith”. UNTIL THE CONCLUSION OF THE INFORMAL RESOLUTION PERIOD (1) NO FORMAL LAWSUIT, CLAIM, OR ACTION MAY BE BROUGHT BY ANY PARTY.
Any arbitration (2) shall result in a written decision setting forth the essential findings and conclusions, which shall be final and binding upon the parties and shall be the exclusive remedy for all Arbitrable claims. The arbitrator shall have only such authority to award equitable relief, damages, costs, and fees as a court would have for the particular claim(s) asserted. The party prevailing in any such arbitration shall be entitled, in addition to all other relief, to reasonable attorneys’ fees relating to such arbitration. The non-prevailing party shall be responsible for all costs of the arbitration, including but not limited to, the arbitration fees, court reporter fees, etc.
THIS CLAUSE WILL NOT PRECLUDE ANY PARTY FROM SEEKING PROVISIONAL REMEDIES AND/OR THE ENFORCEMENT OF ANY POST ARBITRATION AWARD (WITH RESPECT TO ALL MATTERS OF SUBSTANTIVE LAW).
