Patternator Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

V2.00, Last Updated April 24, 2018

These terms of service govern your use of the Patternator software, licensed to you by Bazaart Ltd. You can decide to reject these terms of service, and that you do not agree to them. However, if you do so then you shall have no right to use the software or services.

We develop a software for photo manipulation. When using the software, we may use your content or provide you access to content that we licensed from our partners, and allow you to use third party services to order physical products. You own all the rights for your works, but if you do not have a specific permission to use an image, we can’t provide you with that permission.

Please note that all information is saved locally, and if you close the application without saving, or quit the application, all your creations will be lost, except those who were submitted for third party use .

The content we licensed from third parties is provided with a license (as detailed in the full terms below). If you import content using photos from your own device, you are required to receive the permission from the copyright holders. This means that we don’t claim any ownership of your images.

We allow you to share content you create through our application, however, to do some actions we may require you to purchase a premium subscription.

Please take note that when using our services some information may be processed by third parties: photos may be processed by image processing services, statistical information may be collected by our service providers and technical information may be collected for improving the service.

Lastly, this service is made on an AS-IS basis; we can’t be held liable for any damage: not if your phone heats up and blows, not if your data is lost and not if your photos are published on the web publicly.

Please take the time to read the full terms of service, as they are the final and definite agreement we have.

This means that you cannot use a cellphone you received from the workplace in order to install this application without your employer’s consent; (iii) you are not a sex offender, nor have you been convicted with any violent crime or any crime against your children.
  2. There Is No Signup. We respect your privacy; we don’t store information we don’t need. In order to provide you with the services, we don’t need your personal information.
