The Terms and Conditions set out here explain what you have to agree to do if you use a Bright App Enterprises Limited (“Bright”). product or service, if you visit our websites, if you use our mobile applications, or if you get in touch with us.
It’s important to read the Terms and Conditions because they affect your rights. We try to be as straightforward as we can in these terms, and so we have laid out the most important points here, in the introduction, for you to see. We mean it when we say it’s important to read and understand these terms, and if you have questions, you can always email us at privacy@TheBrightApp.com.
You have to agree to our Terms if you want to use our products or services. We can’t negotiate with each individual member, and so you have to decide if you agree. You can always change your mind.
The products, goods, services, logos, images, ideas, and everything else we create are Bright’s intellectual property. That means you can’t use any of them without our permission.
You can’t use our services or products to harm others, commit crimes, or break contracts. You can only use our services and products in the way we have designed them.
We both agree that, rather than suing one another if something goes wrong, we’ll go to a neutral third party called an arbitrator. They hear from both of us, decide on an outcome, and we both have to accept their decision.
These Sites (as defined below) are owned and operated by Bright App Enterprises Limited (“Bright”), the company that operates the Bright application and website. Bright and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Bright,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) provide a social media service (the “Bright App,” or the “App”) also own and operate certain websites, technology platforms, and other related online and mobile services (including, among other things, our Mobile Applications, as defined below) that reference these Terms and Conditions (collectively, the foregoing described services, websites and other technology, the “Offerings”).

The disclaimer section is very important. This is where we explain what we are not responsible for, and what you can’t make a claim against us for. Please read it very carefully.
You’ll notice that this section is written in all caps. It’s not because we’re shouting at you: some governments (in the United States, for instance) require that disclaimers be written this way.

Bright reserves all rights to change these Terms and Conditions in its sole discretion.

If you continue to use our Offerings after the change is effective, it means you agree to the changes and accept them.
You may not assign rights or obligations under the Governing Documents to anyone else, including by contract or operation of law. The laws of England and Wales apply to all of the Governing Documents, regardless of any conflicts of law provisions. If there is a dispute not covered by the Arbitration Provisions above, you agree to the exclusive subject matter and personal jurisdiction of the courts in England and Wales.
Even if Bright does not exercise a right under the Governing Documents, it does not waive its rights to do so at a later date.
The Parties agree that, if a portion of this or any other Governing Document is found to be invalid by a court of law, then the court should sever that provision and then enforce the rest of the Governing Document as written.
