You acknowledge, consent and agree that Woobo may access, preserve and disclose your User Account information, other information relating to you, and information you provide to Woobo, in a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with any requirement of law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce or investigate a potential violation of these Terms; (c) detect, prevent or otherwise respond to fraud, security or technical concerns; (d) protect the rights, property or safety of Woobo, its Users, or the public against harm, or (e) respond to your requests for customer service.
We may suspend or terminate your User Account or your use of the Woobo Site and Services at any time, for any reason or for no reason, including in the event that you violate these Terms, we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us, or we believe that your actions may cause losses to, or legal liability for, you, other Users of the Services, or us. Suspension and/or termination may include restricting access to and use of the Site and Services, including the Woobo Toy.

We do not permit infringing activities on the Woobo Site or Services. If we suspect or find that any User has infringed the intellectual property rights of us or third parties, we reserve the right to immediately terminate that User’s access to the Woobo Site and Services. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Woobo may have at law or in equity.
Even while your use is suspended and after it is terminated, these Terms will remain enforceable against you. All of the terms and conditions of the Terms, except those Terms granting a license to you to use the Site and Services, survive any termination of these Terms.
If you wish to terminate these Terms, stop further collection or use of your child’s Personal Information, including Voice Commands, or to delete your email address, you may choose to permanently delete your User Account by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that, by permanently deleting your User Account or the Parent App, you will disable the functionality of the Woobo Toy. To reinstate functionality at a later date, you may set up a new User Account using a different email address.
LICENSES GOVERNING THE PARENT APP AND VOICE COMMANDS
Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth in the Terms, Woobo grants you a nonexclusive, non-transferable and revocable license to use the Parent App to set up your User Account and enable you and your child to use the Site and Services. The terms of this license will also govern any upgrades provided by Woobo that replace and/or supplement the original Parent App, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.
You agree not to do, or to authorize or permit any third party to do, any of the following: (i) copy, reproduce or distribute the Parent App; (ii) sell, license, rent, assign, lease, lend, redistribute or sublicense the Parent App; (iii) modify, port, translate, or create derivative works of the Parent App; (iv) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive, reconstruct, identify or discover any source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms of the Parent App by any means (except as and only to the extent any of these restrictions are prohibited by applicable law); (v) use the Parent App for commercial use; (vi) knowingly take any action that would cause the Parent App to be placed in the public domain; and (vii) remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notice or labels on or in the Parent App. If you violate any of the restrictions set forth in the Terms, your right to use the Parent App will immediately cease and you may have infringed Woobo’s copyright and other rights, which may subject you to prosecution and damages. Woobo reserves all rights not expressly granted in the Terms, and no licenses are granted by Woobo to you under the Terms, whether by implication, estoppel or otherwise, except as expressly set forth in the Terms.
You and your child can interact with the Woobo Toy by pressing its ear and speaking to it. The Woobo Toy’s ear will light up with a blue LED light when it is listening to you or your child. You acknowledge and agree that when you or your child interact with the Woobo Toy by pressing its ear and speaking to it, Woobo may capture Voice Commands (the “Voice Commands”) of such interactions.
You agree that Woobo and its service providers may use, transcribe and store any such Voice Commands and the voice and any speech data captured therein to provide and maintain the Services. This includes the use, storage, processing, converting, transcribing, analyzing or reviewing of the Voice Commands (along with text and transcriptions derived from the Voice Commands) to provide, maintain, analyze and improve the functioning of our speech processing services, to develop, test or improve our voice recognition technology, develop artificial intelligence algorithms, improve the relevancy of results provided by our Services, and for other research and development purposes.
We do not use Voice Commands or their content, including any Personal Information that may be captured therein, to contact children or to advertise to them.
Woobo will not use the information contained in any Voice Commands for any purpose except as set forth above. Because audio files containing the voice of a child constitute Personal Information under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Woobo obtains parental consent from you as the authorized User Account holder for your children’s use of the Services using parental email, which is an approved method under COPPA. Without such consent, the Woobo will not be enabled to collect audio and therefore the Woobo Toy will not be fully functional and interactive.
You acknowledge and agree that you (on behalf of yourself and your child) release and discharge Woobo, its affiliated entities, and each of their respective administrators, directors, officers, employees, agents, sponsors and advertisers (collectively, the “Woobo Parties”) from all liability to you and your child for any claims that the use of the Voice Commands by the Woobo Parties and the use of the transcripts or other text derived from Voice Commands by the Woobo Parties as authorized by you in these Terms violates any of your rights, including intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy. Further, you (on behalf of yourself and your child) covenant not to sue Woobo Parties with respect to the creation or use of any Voice Commands, or of any transcripts or other text derived from any Voice Commands as authorized in these Terms. You also acknowledge and agree that neither you nor your child will be entitled to any additional compensation for the use of any of the Voice Commands or transcripts by Woobo or any party on its behalf as authorized under these Terms.
Although we use reasonable efforts to ensure that the content that is featured or displayed on the Woobo Site that we create and/or provide, including but not limited to the Woobo Toy’s voice interactions (the “Editorial Content”) is accurate, appropriate and informative, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness or appropriateness of the Editorial Content. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any Editorial Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in such Editorial Content, any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of your use of or reliance on such Editorial Content, or the use of any product, method or service reviewed or discussed in such Editorial Content.
