To make it easier for you to get the gist of each paragraph, we provide a short summary after each paragraph which however, is not legally binding.

The registration information you provide must be accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the TOS, which may result in termination of your HO account.
You may not use the name of another person or entity or a name that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you without appropriate authorization, or a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.

By signing up and using HassleOFF for your private events you need to be of legal drinking age or have the consent from a legal guardian to do so, as there is a fair chance that you will see advertisement for alcohol or gambling.

HassleOFF may suspend or delete your account if you don’t behave appropriately. You need to do a lot of shit for us blocking you though. On the other hand, you may delete your HassleOFF account at any time as well, even though we hope this will never happen. We’ll send you an email containing a list of data we have deleted. It’s basically everything (except the final email sent to you) as we are not interested in any of your data.
4. Description of service
The service, the Site and the app allow you to set up and edit private events. You may choose a title, activities, date and time, and a location for the event. Additionally, you may add items to the event that will be needed. The final step in event creation is inviting guests. You may choose as many guests as you like from your built-in address book on your mobile device when using the app, your Facebook friends and generally from the list of people you have had shared past events with. On the web app you may also enter email addresses of your friends to invite them as well.
Other users can also create private events and choose to invite you. Upon receiving such an invitation you may accept the invitation and choose one or more of the available options for the event. In case the person that created the event included items to bring to the event, you may also assign yourself to bring one or multiple items to the event.
Your access to and use of the Services may be interrupted from time to time as a result of equipment malfunction, updating, maintenance or repair of the Services or any other reason within or outside the control of HO.

HO may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Site, the app and the Services without notice or liability.
You can create events and invite your friends from your address book, Facebook friends (given you connected or signed up with your Facebook account). By accepting our terms of services you allow HO to use Facebook as an invitation channel to let your friends know you invited them to a particular event. Note: We do not copy your address book to our servers, as we are not interested in the data of your contacts. Each time you select a name of from your address book we only take this data and see if this contact details are associated with another account.
