Use of Public User Submissions
We may use your Public User Submissions in a number of different ways in connection with the Platform, Service and Haveyoubeenhere’s business as Haveyoubeenhere may determine in its sole discretion, including but not limited to, publicly displaying it, reformatting it, incorporating it into marketing materials, advertisements and other works, creating derivative works from it, promoting it, distributing it, and allowing other users to do the same in connection with their own websites, media platforms, and applications (“Third Party Media”).
By submitting User Submissions on the Platform or otherwise through the Service, you hereby do and shall grant Haveyoubeenhere a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, copy, edit, modify, reproduce, analyse, distribute, prepare derivative works of, create a photo album of, display, translate, perform, and otherwise fully exploit the User Submissions in connection with the Platform, the Service and Haveyoubeenhere’s (and its successors and assigns\’) business, including without limitation for redistributing part or all of the Platform (and derivative works thereof) or the Service in any media formats and with any Authorised Users through any media channels (including, without limitation, third party websites and feeds).
You also hereby do and shall grant each Authorized User, including Third Party Media, a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Platform and the Service, and to use, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, create and order a photo album of, display and perform such User Submissions in connection with their use of the Platform, Service and Third Party Media. For clarity, the foregoing license grant to Haveyoubeenhere does not affect your other ownership or license rights in your User Submission(s), including the right to grant additional licenses to the material in your User Submission(s), unless otherwise agreed in writing with Haveyoubeenhere.

Deletion of User Submissions
When you delete your User Submissions, they will be removed from the Service. However, you understand that any removed User Submissions may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period (but following removal will not be shared with others) or may remain with Users who have previously accessed or downloaded your User Submissions.
Aggregated Pools of Information
Data collected by Haveyoubeenhere by analysing User Submissions and the general behaviour of Users, including visits to geographical locations and venues, is collectively referred to as, "Collected Data."
We may access and include your Collected Data in a pool of data used by Haveyoubeenhere to generate and provide estimates of travel trends and behaviour (e.g., amount of visits to a certain location, popularity trends for locations or venues), including across demographics and geographies, to subscribers of Haveyoubeenhere Travel Intelligence and/or to other Users. Subscribers to Haveyoubeenhere Travel Intelligence and/or other Users never receive your specific set of Collected Data in an identifiable form. You hereby acknowledge and consent to the use of your Collected Data in this manner by using Haveyoubeenhere. Except as described herein, your specific set of Collected Data will not be provided to a third party in an identifiable form without your consent, unless we conclude that it is required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, implement a change of control transaction, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

Conditions of sale
Eligibility and Credit Card Terms
To order any Haveyoubeenhere or other products, Users must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable age of majority in their jurisdiction. You will be required to give us a valid credit card number (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer then accepted by us) or debit card, and associated payment information at the time you order Haveyoubeenhere or any other products hereunder, including all of the following:
• Your name as it appears on the card
• The credit card type
• The date of expiration of your credit card
• Billing address
• Any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your credit card.
Haveyoubeenhere does not accept cash or checks, although it reserves the right to change this policy in the future. Your credit card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Haveyoubeenhere invoices the credit card for all amounts due and payable. By providing Haveyoubeenhere with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Haveyoubeenhere is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Haveyoubeenhere as a result of your purchase of any products. You agree to immediately notify Haveyoubeenhere of any change in the credit card used for payment hereunder or in any associated information. Haveyoubeenhere reserves the right, at any time, to change its prices and billing methods for products sold, either immediately upon posting on the Service or by e-mail delivery to you.
Any credit issued to you by Haveyoubeenhere has no cash value and is not exchangeable as cash. Haveyoubeenhere credit may be redeemed towards future purchases using your Haveyoubeenhere account, and your Haveyoubeenhere credit will be automatically applied in the checkout process. Haveyoubeenhere credit is valid for 1 year from the date of last purchase, or if the User has not purchased, from the date of registration as a Haveyoubeenhere User. If your Haveyoubeenhere credit expires, it will be removed from your Haveyoubeenhere account.
Haveyoubeenhere Coupon Codes
Haveyoubeenhere may offer you promotional coupon codes (“Coupon Codes”), which give you a discount when buying services. Any Coupon Code issued to you by Haveyoubeenhere has no cash value and is not exchangeable as cash. Haveyoubeenhere Coupon Codes may be redeemed towards future purchases using your Haveyoubeenhere account, and you can enter your Coupon Code at the last step of the checkout process. Only one Coupon Code can be used per order. Coupon Codes are valid until the date mentioned on the Coupon Code, or otherwise until 6 months after you have first received the code. Coupon Codes cannot be applied to shipping and processing, taxes, previous purchases or other products on the Haveyoubeenhere Platform. Additional charges may apply for import taxes, unless otherwise specified. We reserve the right to change or cancel the terms and/or value of Coupon Codes at any time without notice.
Fees and Charges
You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your orders and purchases (including any taxes imposed on your orders and purchases, including, but not limited to, applicable shipping fees, sales, use or value-added taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Fees charged for goods and services may change at any time without advanced notice. Haveyoubeenhere may automatically charge and withhold such fees and charges for orders to be delivered to addresses within any jurisdictions that it deems is required. When you order products for overseas delivery, shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the products arrives at the destination that you specified. Any charges for customs clearance shall be borne by you, as Haveyoubeenhere has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). You agree that you are the importer of record for goods and services you order and you shall comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Such notification shall be sent to the following email-address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

We reserve the right to reject any order without the obligation to assign any reason for so doing.

The order confirmation will contain details of your order, the price and an estimate of the delivery time for the order. It is your responsibility to contact us and notify us of any error or mistake with the order as soon as reasonably practicable. Failure to do so may lead to the incorrect order being sent out to you.
