User Agreement

Welcome, and thanks for using AVIANTURE services and app! By using or accessing our products and services, you're agreeing to our terms, so please take a few minutes to read over the User Agreement below.

Note: You are entering into a legally binding agreement.

Introduction

Last revised on November 1st, 2017

We are a social network and online platform for professionals.

Purpose

Our mission is to connect aviation professionals and aviation enthusiasts worldwide, keeping them in touch with the industry’s latest news and offering opportunities to network, look for opportunities and create ones, socializing with like-minded people from the same industry and sharing experiences to better the aviation industry.

When you use our Services, you are entering into a legal agreement and you agree to all of these terms.

You also agree to our Privacy Policy, which covers how we collect, use, share, and store your personal information.

You agree that by clicking “Join AVIANTURE”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (including AVIANTURE, our related mobile apps, developer platforms, premium services, or any content or information provided as part of these services, collectively, “Services”), you are entering into a legally binding agreement (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company).

This “Agreement” includes this User Agreement and the Privacy Policy, and other terms we may ask you to review at the time you first use certain features, as may be amended by AVIANTURE from time to time. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do NOT click “Sign Up” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services.

Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Agreement applies to both.

Obligations

Service Eligibility

Here are some promises you make to us in this Agreement:

You're eligible to enter into this Agreement and you are at least our “Minimum Age.”

To use the Services, you agree that:

  • You must be the “Minimum Age” or older;
  • You will only have one AVIANTURE account, which must be in your real name;
  • You are not already restricted by AVIANTURE from using the Services.

“Minimum Age” means (a) 18 years old for the People's Republic of China, (b) 16 years old for the Netherlands, (c) 14 years old for the United States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia and South Korea, and (d) 13 years old for all other countries. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for AVIANTURE to lawfully provide the Services to you (including the collection, storage and use of your information) then the Minimum Age is such older age. The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 13.

  • Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees.

Notices and Service Messages

You are okay with us using our website, mobile app, and email to provide you with important notices. Also, you agree certain additional information can be shared with us.

Messages and Sharing

When you share information, others can see, copy and use that information.

Our Services allow messaging and sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, slide deck, links to news articles, job postings, Messages, discussions and blogs. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other members or, if public, by visitors. Where we have made settings available, we will privilege the choices you make about who can see content or information.

Note that other activities, such as applying for a job or sending a Message, are by default private, only visible to the addressee(s).

We are not obliged to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice.

Rights and Limits
