Campfire Terms of Service
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are between you and Campfire, Inc. (“Campfire”). These Terms govern your access to and use of our Campfire services, including our Campfire mobile application (“App”), our websites, including the website located at https://www.campfire.cool (collectively, the “Services”).
1. Basic Terms
This is a contract between you and Campfire. You may use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with Campfire and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so. You represent that your are 13 years of age or older or if you are under 13 years of age, you are using the Service under the supervision of your parent or legal guardian. If you are under 13 years, your parent or legal guardian must review and agree to this Agreement.
Agreement to Terms
You must read and agree to these terms before using the Services. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service. By accessing or using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. The Services that Campfire provides are always evolving and the form and nature of the Services may change from time to time without prior notice to you. In addition, Campfire may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
If you want to use the Services you’ll have to create an account and become a registered user (“User”). It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your account. We reserve the right to force forfeiture of any username for any reason. Campfire cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the user account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your account, whether or not you know about them.
The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Campfire on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Campfire granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Campfire and its subsidiary, third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others.
3. Using the Services
The Services enable you to participate in group video chats with other Users. When you use the App, you will be able to join a video chat with a User with whom you are connected on the Services (each a “Connection”). You can add Connections by inviting them to connect on the Services.
Once you are in a video chat, your Connections and any other participants’ Connections are able to join the same video chat session. If you wish to limit your video chat to your direct Connections, you can lock your video chat session. If you do not lock your video chat session, a friend of someone with whom you are video chatting may join that current video chat session, with or without an invite from you and whether or not you know him or her. However, if a User that isn’t your Connection is about to join a video chat session you are in, you’ll receive a notice that such a participant who is not your friend is joining the session. The Services may also suggest that you invite a Connection that you and one or more participants in a video chat session have in common to join a video chat session.
If you choose to import your personal contacts from your mobile device we will access your personal contacts in order to identify Users that you may know that are using the Services.
We may offer you the opportunity to invite your Connections or other contacts to join your group video chats or otherwise enjoy the Services. If you choose to invite one or more of your Connections or contacts using text messaging (SMS) or another communications app, we may suggest content for the message. Those messages will be sent from the native SMS application on your device. If you choose to send such invitations, you represent to Campfire that the recipients of such invitations have consented to receive such messages from you, and that those recipients do not consider such messages unwanted or unsolicited. You may incur additional charges when you send invitations via text messaging.
4. Content On the Services

Content includes, without limitation, User Content.
All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We may, but are not required to monitor or control the Content posted via the Services and we cannot take responsibility for such Content.
