These Terms form a legally binding contract between you, Bloom and Ready App One LLC, which is the owner of the Bloom app. Please read these Terms carefully.
In order to use our Services, you are required to accept these Terms that were presented to you when you first open the Bloom app or when we make any changes to the Terms. If you do not accept the Terms, you cannot use the Services.
No one under 13 is allowed to create an account or use the Services.

The services should not be used for business and commercial purposes. If you want to use the services for business or commercial purposes please contact us at email@example.com and make a request.
You must create an account to use the Services. Creating an account is done inside the app. Here is some important information for you to know regarding your account:
In order to use the Services you need to pick a username. Your username will be displayed when you use the app. Currently, there is no way to change your username.
We reserve the right to review all usernames and change them at our discretion or delete your account if your username is found to be imitating another business, brand or person.
We reserve the right to give your username to another user who already has that username or identity established as a business, brand or personality. If this happens, we will change your username to a temporary username and allow you to pick a new username. If you were found to be imitating said entity, your account will be deleted.
An active phone number is required to create an account. We ask you to verify your phone number so we know it is yours. Your phone number is never revealed to other users on Bloom. If you have any issues with your account and phone number, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can send an invitation to people in your contacts to use Bloom. In order to do that, we ask for your permission to access your contacts. Invitations are sent via text message, so you agree to any charges your carrier may charge you for sending those text messages.
If you allow access to push notifications, you can receive push notifications notifying you of things such as when someone sends you a message or follows you.
It is your responsibility to maintain safe and responsible practices to maintain the security of your account. This means creating a strong and unique password (preferably different from any other apps, websites or services you use). If your account has been hacked or you feel something suspicious is happening please contact us at email@example.com.
In order to use location services, Bloom may access your location data on your iOS or Android smartphone and to store some of that location data. You will have to give Bloom permission before it can access your location data. You can remove the location permission in the Settings of your iOS or Android smartphone.
You understand that under normal conditions, Services will work as expected but the accuracy of the location data can vary based on several factors such as your network coverage, wifi connection, your location in the world (or other planets), etc. This may affect how accurate your Services will be.
You understand that the location data of your smartphone is only used to (i) get your location when you upload a photo or video, (ii) get your location when viewing some posts and (iii) determine how far away a post is from your location.
Bloom does not use your location data to track you in real-time. Bloom does not store any real-time location data on you.
The maps we show in the app are native maps to iOS and Android respectively. Your location displayed on those maps comes from iOS and Android APIs respectively.
Our Services let you create, upload, post, send, receive and store different types of content. When you do that, you retain any ownership rights in that content you had to begin with. However, you grant us a license to use that content.
Posts or content you upload that is visible by everyone is “Public Content”. For all other content you submit to the Services other than Public Content, you grant Bloom and our affiliates a worldwide, solar system-wide, sublicensable, royalty-free, and transferable license to use, store, host, display, modify, adapt, reproduce, edit, distribute and publish that content. This license is for the limited purpose of developing, providing, operating, improving, promoting and improving the Services and for researching and developing new ones.
Because Public Content is inherently public and chronicles matters of public interest, the license you grant us for this content is much broader. For Public Content, you grant Bloom, our affiliates, and our business partners all of the same rights you grant for non-Public Content, as well as a perpetual license to create derivative works from, exhibit, promote, broadcast, syndicate, publicly display, publicly perform Public Content in any form, any way and in any and all media or distribution methods (either now known or later developed). To the extent it’s necessary, when you create, appear in, post, upload or send Public Content, you also grant Bloom, our affiliates, and our business partners the unrestricted, worldwide, solar system-wide, perpetual right and license to use your name, likeness and voice, including in connection with commercial or sponsored content. This means that (in addition to other things) that you will not be entitled to any compensation from Bloom, our affiliates, or our business partners if your name, likeness, or voice is conveyed through the Services, either on the Bloom app or on any of our business partner’s platforms.
We may also screen, review access,, and delete your content at any time and for any reason, including to provide and develop the Services or if we think your content violates these Terms in any way.. However, you alone remain responsible for the content you create, post, upload, send, save or store through the Service.
The Services may contain advertisements. In consideration for Bloom letting you access and use the Services, you agree that Bloom, our affiliates, and our third-party partners may place advertising on or throughout the Services. Due to the fact that the Services contain content that you and other people on the platform provide us, advertising may sometimes appear near your content or not.
Bloom grants you a personal, worldwide, interplanetary, royalty-free, non-assignable, non-exclusive, revocable, and non-sublicensable licence to use and access the Services. This licence is for the sole purpose of letting you enjoy and use the Services’ benefits in a way that the Terms outlined here allow.
The app may be automatically downloaded and installed for upgrades, updates or new features. These are controlled by your operating system on your iOS or Android device. You understand it is your responsibility to manage these Settings of your smartphone device.
You may not modify, copy, distribute, sell, lease, or hack any part of our Services, nor may you reverse engineer or try to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit these restrictions or you have our explicit, written permission to do so.
