We do not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the version that you have installed on your device.

SHARING YOUR CONTENT AND INFORMATION

 

You own all of the content and information you post on Voxxy App, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:

 

  • If you are not a Verified Voice: For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and audios (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Voxxy App (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

 

  • If you are a Verified Voice: we will always ask via an email to the email associated with your account for your express permission to use your content - individual voice notes, a number of voice notes, or all voice notes - in advertising, media and for other business uses. Should we not receive a response within three working days it will be assumed that you are content for us to use the content. In our use of the content you will be granting us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use. If you wish to come to another arrangement regarding your content, please contact info@voxxyworld.com.

 

  • When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).

 

  • When you use an application, the application may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information. 

 

  • When you publish content or information, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people of Voxxy App, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture), with the exception of content Verified Voices publish behind subscription paywalls. This will only be accessible to users subscribing to that Verified Voice. 

 

  • We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Voxxy App, but you understand that we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).


 

SAFETY AND COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

 

We want Voxxy to be an enjoyable and humane place for us to come together. To us this is absolutely paramount, which is why we do our best to keep Voxxy App safe, but we cannot guarantee it and we need your help. So, in using Voxxy you make the following commitments:

 

  1. You will not bully, intimidate, harass, or threaten violence against any user.

  2. You will not post content that: is hate speech, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence, or contains sounds associated with graphic or gratuitous violence; promotes terrorism or violent extremism 

  3. You will not post content in any way associated with child exploitation or slavery

  4. You will not use Voxxy App to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory, including buying or selling illegal goods or services. 

  5. You will not encourage or promote self harm or suicide 

  6. You will not post unauthorised commercial communications (such as spam) on Voxxy App.

  7. You will not collect users' content or information, or otherwise access Voxxy App, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our prior permission.

  8. You will not engage in unlawful multi-level marketing, such as a pyramid scheme, on Voxxy App.

  9. You will not upload viruses or other malicious code.

  10. You will not solicit login information or access an account belonging to someone else.

  11. You will not do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working or appearance of Voxxy App, such as a denial-of-service attack or interference with page rendering or other Voxxy App functionality.

 

In the initial iteration of Voxxy, Voxxy team members will be manually monitoring the platform and investigating reports of any content that may fall into the above categories. Should you identify any such content, please use the report function on the app or inform us via an email to info@voxxyworld.com​. 


If it’s identified that you have posted content that Voxxy deems falls within the above categories, Voxxy reserves the right to delete your account. If you subscribe to Verified Voices and have your account deleted you will be charged that month’s subscription fee for each Verified Voice to which you subscribe; but payments will cease to be taken after that month.

In later iterations of Voxxy, Voxxy will seek to complement our manual searching of content with AI aimed at identifying content that breaches our appropriate content policy. Voxxy will stay engaged with the debate around how social media mitigates against users being exposed to harmful content, and we assure our users that we will strive to make Voxxy the safest place it can possibly be. It’s as important to you as it is us. 

And should you wish to block any other user you have the right and ability to do that on Voxxy. If you are blocked you will still be able to hear voice notes posted by the user that blocked you, but you will not be able to comment on them or interact with that user in any way.

 

REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT SECURITY

 

App users should provide their real names and information to assist with the security of Voxxy. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

 

  1. When registering on the app you will not provide any false personal information, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without their permission or without expressly stating that it is a parody / podcast / business account. 

  2. You will not create more than one personal account.

  3. If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission.

  4. If you are under 18 you declare that you have the express permission of a responsible parent or guardian over 18 to use the app.

  5. You will not use app if you are a convicted sex offender.

  6. You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.

  7. You will not share your password (or in the case of developers, your secret key), let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account.

  8. You will not transfer your account (including any Page or application you administer) to anyone without first getting our written permission.

  9. If you select a username or similar identifier for your account, we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe it is appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user's actual name).

SUBSCRIPTIONS 

 

Voxxy is a free to use service, with the exception of when users choose to access content Verified Voices have put behind a paywall. 


To access such content users will have to buy ‘credits’ through monthly subscriptions. The subscription options users have are: 


£0.99/ month = 1 credit in app /month

£1.99/ month = 2 credits in app /month

£4.99/ month = 5 credits in app /month

£9.99/ month = 10 credits in app /month

£19.99/ month = 20 credits in app /month

£29.99/ month = 30 credits in app /month

£49.99/ month = 50 credits in app /month

£99.99/ month = 100 credits in app /month


Verified Voices will choose what content they put behind a paywall and how many credits are required to access this content. Verified Voices will be able to charge 1, 2, 5 or 10 credits per month. The amount of credits a Verified Voice charges will be clearly displayed on their profile page. 


Verified Voices will be able to increase their monthly credit cost but, due to difficulties around refunding users, they will, at least initially, not be able to decrease the monthly cost. This will be amended in later iterations of Voxxy.  


Users can subscribe and unsubscribe to Verified Voices paid for content whenever they want. They will pay the credits for the month ahead up front and if they choose to unsubscribe that month they will continue to have access to the Verified Voices’ content until the end of that payment period, at which point they will no longer have access to the paid for content and they will stop paying the credits required. 


If a user cancels their subscription outside of the app, via Apple settings for example, then all of their subscriptions in app will automatically be cancelled and their number of credits available will be reset to 0. The user will continue to have access to the Verified Voices’ content until the end of that payment period.


If a user decreases their subscription plan to below what’s required to cover their current subscriptions the user will be notified that they will need to choose which subscriptions to keep, the total cost of which shall be lower than or equal to their new subscription plan cost. 


If a Verified Voice increases their subscription cost then subscribers will be notified that they are no longer subscribed to that Verified Voice and be given the option to resubscribe at the higher cost.


In paying for credits on Voxxy users declare they have ownership of and / or permission to use their chosen payment method.

 

MONETISATION 

 

All Verified Voices on Voxxy have the option to monetise by introducing a subscription paywall. Verified Voices accept that this process works as follows:

 

  • Verified Voice sets the monthly subscription cost to 1, 2, 5 or 10 ‘credits’ per subscriber (see SUBSCRIPTIONS above for what these are worth in monetary terms).

  • Transfers will be made direct to the Verified Voice’s account on a monthly basis

  • Baseline 85%. Verified Voices on Voxxy from the start will receive 85% of subscription income* (Verified Voices joining later will earn 75%)   

  • If within two months the Verified Voice gets 0.5% of their Twitter or Instagram (whichever is higher) subscribing to their Voxxy, or 5% following their Voxxy, they’ll receive an extra 5% of their total subscription income.

  • If within two months the Verified Voice gets 1% of their Twitter or Instagram (whichever is higher) subscribing to their Voxxy, or 10% following their Voxxy, they’ll receive an extra 10% of their total subscription income.

  • If a Verified Voices recommend another Verified Voice who joins as a result of the recommendation, the original Verified Voice will receive 5% of the new Verified Voice’s Voxxy subscription income

  • The Top 5 Voxxy Verified Voices within two months of launch date (based on subscriptions) will receive 100% of their income.


*when discussing subscription income this means subscription income minus any processing / VAT fees
