The Full Terms of Service
Discovering Coffee. (“Discovering Coffee”, or “us”, “our”, “we”, “Discovering Coffee”) provides a mobile application (the “App”) for discovering independent and specialty coffee shops (“Coffee Shops”). These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access and use of the App, our website (the “Site”), located at www.DiscoveringCoffee.com, and other services that we may provide (collectively, the “Services”). “User” or “you” means an individual or entity end user of the Services.

Discovering Coffee allows you to access and use the Services, subject to these Terms, for your own personal use. You may not use the Services in connection with any other commercial endeavor. You may not create more than one account per individual or mobile device, and you may not access any account other than your own. Discovering Coffee may, in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Services or any part thereof without notice.
Use of and access to the Services is void where prohibited by law. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (a) any and all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (c) you either are 18 years of age or older, or else have the permission of your parents or guardians to use the Services and (d) your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation or any obligation.

By registering through a Facebook account you represent and warrant that such account is yours and you have all right to provide us with the information in such account according to the terms and conditions of those services. We may terminate your use of the Service without notice if others use your account inappropriately by others, or if you or anyone using your account violates these Terms. If your account is terminated, you may not rejoin the Service again without our express permission. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. You are fully and solely responsible for the security of your computer system, mobile device and all activity on your account, even if you were not aware of or did not authorize such activities. Discovering Coffee will not be liable for any losses or damage arising from unauthorized use of the Service, and you agree to indemnify and hold Discovering Coffee harmless for any improper or illegal use of the Service, and any charges and taxes incurred, unless you have notified us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org that your account has been compromised. We do not police for, and cannot guarantee that we will learn of or prevent, any inappropriate use of the Services.

We reserve the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms or illegal or inappropriate use of the Services.
You may request termination of your Discovering Coffee account at any time and for any reason by sending an email to email@example.com. Any suspension, termination, or cancellation shall not affect your obligations to Discovering Coffee and its licenses under these Terms (including but not limited to ownership, indemnification, and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination, or cancellation.
The availability and selection of eats or other items will vary from Coffee Shop to Coffee Shop.

“Personal Information” means information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, telephone number, e-mail address, or information about activities directly linked to a person, such as that person’s location. Examples of the Personal Information that we collect from you include your name, location, and e-mail address. It is your voluntary decision whether to provide us with any such Personal Information, but if you refuse to provide such information we may not be able to register you to use the Services.

We also collect Personal Information when you make use of the Services or contact us for any other reason. We also collect the location of your mobile device when the Services are operating. If you log in to the Services through Facebook Connect, or another social network, we may also receive personal information about you from those networks.
How We Use Information
Except as expressly set forth herein, we will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your explicit permission, except when required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order. We may use Personal Information internally – for example, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to make Discovering Coffee more useful, to customize Discovering Coffee and personalize its content for you.
In addition, by analyzing all information we receive, including all information concerning users, we may compile statistical information across a variety of mobile applications and users (“Statistical Information”). Statistical Information helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires. Statistical Information is anonymous and we will not link Statistical Information to any Personal Information. We may share such Statistical Information with our partners, without restriction, on commercial terms that we can determine in our sole discretion.
How we Protect Information
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We will delete any information provided to us by a user upon the receipt of a written (including via email) request by such user.
Third Party Sites and Applications
Portions of the Services (including, without limitation, advertisements) may involve linking to or using web sites or applications belonging to third parties.

We have no control over third-party sites or applications, and all use of third-party sites or applications is at your own risk. Additionally, Discovering Coffee cannot accept responsibility for any payments processed or submitted through such third party sites or applications, or for the privacy policies of any such sites. Discovering Coffee is not responsible for content or available by means of such sites or applications. Discovering Coffee does not endorse any products or offered by third parties and we urge our users to exercise caution in using third-party sites or applications.

In providing the Services, we may use subcontractors that are located in countries other than your own, and send them information we receive. For example, we may send your information to any countries outside Israel, the United States or the European Union. All our subcontractors will be subject to non-disclosure and non-use obligations. Nevertheless, the level of protection for personal and other information varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Protections in jurisdiction in which we operate may not be as extensive as your country of residence or business.
We may transfer our databases containing your Personal Information if we sell our business or part of it.
