This User Agreement (“Agreement”) outlines the terms of service that govern Journey Lane’s (“our”, “we”, “us”) relationship with Users and others who interact with us, which we call the “Journey Lane Services” or “Services,” and includes this User Agreement and the Journey Lane Data Policy. By using or accessing the Journey Lane Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time.
Our Users’ privacy is very important to us. As a result, Journey Lane’s mission is to provide them a safe, secure, and private environment where they can plan, organize, remember and share their most meaningful and memory – worthy moments. Our Users value their time and only want to share their experiences and memories with those that matter the most to them. We recognize that modern social media has diluted the richness of personal experience by driving the constant need for feedback, so we created a private and functionally – rich “Experience Media” environment for Users who believe as we do. Please refer to our Data Policy for additional information. As a responsible User of Journey Lane, and for the sake of the safety and positive experience of all Journey Lane Users, you agree to the following:
1. Service Eligibility
To create a standard or premium Journey Lane account (“Account”) or to use the Services associated with those accounts, you agree that you must be 13 years of age or older. However, if local law requires that you must be older than 13 years of age in order for Journey Lane to lawfully provide the Services to you, then the Minimum Age is that older age.
Because Journey Lane is a closed network “Experience Media” service and not an open “Social Media” environment, we provide limited functionality for Users less than the age of 13. Accounts of Users that are less than 13 years of age will be limited in functionality to view only, with the exception of media uploading and journal entry. Such Users will not be able to invite Connections or create Journeys or Events. Accounts for individuals less than 13 years of age must be approved by that child’s parent or legal guardian. All requests for Connections must also be approved by that child’s parent or legal guardian. As a parent or legal guardian of a child whose Account you have approved, you agree to their Use of Journey Lane and agree to monitor their Content for legal and social responsibility.
2.Membership and Account Security
You are solely responsible for anything that happens through your Account unless you close it or report misuse. You agree to the following relating to registering and maintaining the security of your Account:
You will not create an Account for anyone other than yourself unless the parent or legal guardian of a child less than 13 years of age.
You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.
If creating a Journey Lane ID and password (as opposed to using Google or Facebook to log in), you agree to choose a strong and secure password.
You will not share your password, provide your Account, or do anything that might jeopardize the security of your Account.
You will not transfer your Account or any part of your Account to another person.
You will follow the law.
If you purchase any of our paid Services (“Premium Services”), you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes. Failure to pay these fees may result in the termination of your subscription. You also agree to the following:
Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location.
Taxes are calculated based on the billing information that you provide at the time of the purchase.
Should you choose to not continue “Premium Services”, your Content will continue to be stored in Journey Lane and will be available to you within the confines of the functionality allowed within the standard service provided up and until your Account is deleted.
Should you choose to upgrade to “Premium Services” again, your previous Content, unless deleted, will be available in its entirety.
Journey Lane is not responsible for any costs that may be incurred for the services external to Journey Lane that are required to use Journey Lane (for example, network charges, mobile usage charges, etc.).
