Welcome to spyn! Thank you for using our service. spyn is a software platform intended to help its users find players, coaches, venues for sports and to help them participate in sporting events and competitions. We may extend our Service to include other activities with the intention to provide our users a rich experience. spyn is developed, registered and owned by Atzos Ventures Pvt Ltd, a company having its registered office at ‘Karnavats’, Plot 84-85, Sector 8A, CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai. Henceforth in this document, spyn (the service) refers to the software platform while AVPL refers to ‘Atzos Ventures Pvt Ltd’ (the entity).
Our policies are important to enhance usefulness and longevity of our service, and are hence binding on all users of our service. Please read and understand them carefully. We may modify them hence check them regularly. Also, when applying our policies, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, or documentary considerations, or when there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action.
You may e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Accuracy of information
We intend to help you find players and coaches that match your sport and skill. Currently our matching is based on skills reported by users themselves and reviews from other users – both of which are subject to personal opinion. However, we cannot and do not handpick users. In case any users that spyn suggested or you searched on spyn do not turn out as expected, AVPL shall not be held liable for any claims. AVPL shall not be liable for damages caused due to misrepresentation or hiding of facts by users. AVPL also cannot guarantee the accuracy and completeness of any information uploaded by users.
We want to help you find the right venues / facilities to engage in sport that provide you the greatest value. We shall endeavor to bring to you the most important and relevant information about these venues. However, rules, timings, coaches, circumstances keep changing. Hence we recommend you to contact the venues to verify the data before committing to any action. We cannot guarantee the accuracy and completeness of the information that is provided on spyn.
Personal discretion in user interactions
AVPL cannot verify the profiles of all the players that choose this platform. We do not check user backgrounds, their intentions or integrity. Hence for you own safety, we recommend you to verify profiles of unknown / new players before indulging in any sport together. It is recommended that users ensure their personal safety while contacting or meeting strangers / users through this service. For example, if fixing up a match with a stranger, chose a venue which is safe and trusted. AVPL shall not be liable for claim to any damages arising out of the conduct of any of its users and suggested venues.
You can upload content like pictures and post your thoughts, reviews, comments. You retain any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content through spyn, you give us (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Service), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Service, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Service (for example, for a player review you have added). Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Service.
Our automated algorithms analyze your content and usage history to provide you personally relevant information, such as customized search results, player suggestions, tailored advertising and offers. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.
If you have a spyn Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on spyn (such as likes, reviews you write and comments you post) in our Service, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts.
If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Service, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.
