By downloading and/or using the IdiomConnect™, IdiomCreate™, or Idiom Event Preservation Platform™ apps and software, (Idiom Products & Services a/k/a Idiom P&S) these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app or any Idiom P&S.
1. User Rights & Responsibilities
You may not copy, modify or duplicate any part of the Idiom P&S or copy, modify, alter or duplicate any of the Idiom trademarks, database rights, copyrights, icons, logotypes or graphic elements. These are proprietary intellectual properties owned by Idiom Publishing Inc., (Idiom) as is the source code for all of the Idiom P&S. You also shouldn't try to translate the app into other languages, or make derivative versions.
1.A. You should be aware that there are certain things that Idiom Publishing Inc. will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the IdiomConnect™, IdiomCreate™ apps and templates are stored in cloud servers and will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider. Regardless, Idiom Publishing Inc. will not take responsibility for the Idiom P&S not working at full functionality if you don't have access to Wi-Fi, a secure internet connection or you don't have any of your data allowance left.
1.B. If you're using the Idiom P&S outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing any Idiom services or products (including the Idiom apps), or other third-party charges. In using the Idiom P&S, you're accepting and assuming responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the Idiom P&S outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you're using the Idiom P&S and apps, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the Idiom P&S and apps.
1.C. There's more. Idiom Publishing Inc. cannot take responsibility for the way you use your device (example; smartphone) or the IdiomConnect app. You need to make sure that your device is functional and stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can't turn it on to avail the Idiom P&S, Idiom Publishing Inc., cannot accept responsibility.
2. Our Commitment
Idiom Publishing Inc. is committed to providing you with Idiom P&S that are useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or its services, at any time and for any reason. Once you purchase the IdiomConnect™ app, we will never charge you for the use of the IdiomConnect™ app.
The Idiom P&S stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, (Personal Profile) in order to provide our Services. It's your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the Idiom P&S secure.
4. Idiom Publishing will not sell or distribute any of your personal information!
4.A. We have tried to use plain language to make our policies understandable. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the forward-looking EU generated privacy protection regulations. Idiom intends to comply with applicable data protection regulations and is committed to GDPR compliance across its relevant services effective June 11. 2019.
4.B. We suggest that you do not remove software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your connectivity device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone's security features and it could mean that the Idiom P&S won't work properly or at all.
5. User-Generated Content
The Idiom P&S may contain information, text, links, graphics, photos, videos or other materials (Content) including User-Generated Content submitted prior to or after publication. The Company encourages you to update your page on a regular basis and chronical your life events.
5.A. By submitting User-Generated Content prior to or after publication to the Idiom P&S, you represent and warrant that you have all rights, power and authority necessary to grant rights to such User-Generated Content contained within these terms. Because you alone are responsible for Your User-Generated Content, you may expose yourself to liability if you post or share Content without all necessary rights.

Nor will Idiom Publishing tolerate the use of any explicit language concerning sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or religious beliefs. Any of the above referenced negative content actions may constitute a "cause" of action that could result in a suspension of service (see below, Static Suspension of Service).
6. Static (Read Only) Suspension of Service
6.A. Our policy is simple and straightforward:
You have purchased and Idiom agrees that your purchase will be perpetually available as an individual IdiomConnect™ End User License Agreement or an IdiomCreate™ design license, and we want you to continue using and enjoying the Idiom P&S.
Suspension of Idiom P&S for "Cause".
6.B. "Cause." Under no conditions, should you, for any reason, attempt to post User-Generated content deemed to be socially unacceptable (language, video or photographic).
6.C. Purchasers of IdiomCreate™ template software (staff/advisors) may be made aware of User-Generated and User-Submitted Content that is determined to be objectionable or socially unacceptable content prior to publishing. Staff/advisors are strongly encouraged to refuse to publish such content and identify the submitter. All User-Generated and User-Submitted Content is subject to internal review and determination by Idiom P&S purchaser (staff/advisor) as to its suitability for publication. Objectionable User-Generated and User-Submitted content repeatedly submitted by identified users may constitute "Cause".
Idiom Publishing Inc. objects to the posting of any socially objectionable content and the Company realizes that there are variances in what may constitute "socially unacceptable or objectionable content." Idiom Publishing Inc. strongly suggests that prior to publication, staff/advisor and committee teams carefully review and delete all content that could be considered socially unacceptable or objectionable.
Post publication by the purchaser, Idiom Publishing Inc. may take any and all steps to continue to monitor, identify and remove socially unacceptable or objectionable content. Specific objectionable content should be reported via email to Idiom Publishing Inc.'s "Offensive Content Review" committee.

7.B. Idiom recognizes that certain Idiom P&S purchasers (Account Holder) may not be the actual "Users" of Idiom P&S.
