Welcome to Find Your Tennis (FYT), a networking site where members can meet, organize tennis practices, matches and tournaments, find and book tennis courts and keep in touch with other people in the tennis community (FYT Services).

Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
Sharing Your Content and Information
You own all of the content and information you post on FYT, and you control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
- For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with FYT Services (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
- When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
- When you use an application, your content and information is shared with the application. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information.
- When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of FYT, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
- We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about FYT and FYT Services, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).
We do our best to keep FYT and FYT Services safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to do that, which includes the following commitments:
- You will not send or otherwise post unauthorized commercial communications (such as spam) on the FYT website.
- You will not collect users' content or information, or otherwise access the FYT website, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our permission.

- You will not upload viruses or other malicious code on the FYT website.
- You will not solicit login information or access an account belonging to someone else.

- You will not do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working of the FYT website and/or FYT Services, such as a denial of service attack.
- You will not facilitate or encourage any violations of these Terms of Service.
Registration and Account Security
FYT users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

- You will not transfer your FYT account (including any page or application you administer) to anyone without first getting our written permission.
- If you select a username for your FYT account we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate to do so (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user's actual name).
Protecting Other People's Rights
We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same.
- You will not post content or take any action on the FYT website that infringes or violates someone else's rights or otherwise violates the law.

- You will not use our copyrights or any confusingly similar marks, without our written permission.
- You will not post anyone's identification documents or sensitive financial information on the FYT website.
- We currently provide our mobile services for free, but please be aware that your carrier's normal rates and fees, such as text messaging fees, will still apply.
- In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you will update your account information on the FYT website within 48 hours to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person who acquires your old number.
