Terms of Service

Version 2.0. Date: July 1, 2019

Introduction

Welcome to Cooper, a professional messenger application (the “App”) that helps you to make meaningful introductions.

The App is provided to you by Cooper Collective Inc. (“Cooper”, “we”, “us” or “our”) with its office at 548 Market St #71793, San Francisco CA 94104-5401, United States.

Please read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”), the Privacy Policy and the Cookie Policy carefully. By clicking “I accept”, you indicate that you have read and understood the Terms and the Privacy Policy and that you agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree to the Terms or the Privacy Policy, please do not use the service in any way.  

Registration

You must register in order to use the service provided by the App (the “Service”). After providing your email address you receive a verification link to create an account to use the Service.

Service

The Service provides you a profile with your name, company name, profile picture, title, biography, location and links to your public profiles. You can edit your profile using the edit button.

The Service allows you to add contacts from your smartphone address book to create a list of contacts (the “Address Book”). The Address Book contains name, email address, telephone number, title and company name of the contacts. By using this Service you can choose two contacts from your Address Book and invite them via an introduction email to connect with each other.

The Service allows you furthermore to create a specific list of profiles and share the suggested profiles with others and/or users (the “List”). The suggested profiles cannot be contacted directly by others and/or users they are not connected to. The profile on the List contains a name and public available information. By using this Service you can create a List, invite others and/or users to contribute and view the List and request to be introduced to a suggested profile on the List.

Your contacts will not be contacted by us, unless you make the aforementioned introduction.

Contact information

Before submitting contact information, you must make sure you comply with all applicable laws, including laws concerning privacy and you represent and warrant that you are entitled to upload it, share it with others or grant us the rights hereunder.

Contact information you submit may include any information you desire. Please make sure to include only information that you obtained lawfully and that is accurate, complete and up to date. The Services provides you with the opportunity to add contact information and/or edit contact information from the Address Book and the List.
