our vision

We seek to be the largest audiovisual heritage captured from the point of view of all and that houses the history of humanity. To be the most complete family, social and universal album.

Provide a powerful tool to easily navigate our digital memory of a personal, social and universal nature.

Allow future generations to know where they come from and that they themselves perpetuate history.

Build something like a time machine...

general rules

  1. Each user gets 7 GB of free storage.

  2. All photos will be uploaded and can be viewed in high quality.

  3. The location and time metadata of the photos is necessary to order them.

  4. The privacy of our users is essential, we do not share data.

  5. Each one decides who to share their photo with and can delete it or revoke access.

what do we do with the data?

Privacy is a fundamental part of our DNA and for this reason we have established certain rules to protect users, for example, it is not possible to tag someone on our platform. We do not apply "face detection" or "activity tracking" to our users content nor will we share your activity with third parties. Only the photos you make public can help generate anonymous metrics systems, LifeBites is first and foremost a private social network.

Any collection of information such as concentration of photos in a specific place and time, to establish criteria of interest, will be compiled anonymously.

about public content

All the content you make public can be seen by everyone. Your contacts will be able to know that it is your photo and see the exact location of it. For those who are not your contacts it will be anonymous and they will not be able to see the exact location.

For all the content that you make public, its storage space will not be at your expense, we will pay for it, and therefore, we can establish editorial criteria if the material is considered inappropriate or violates our Terms and Conditions. In this case, the photo will have limited visibility only to your contacts and you will not be able to make it public again.

By making a public photo you are granting us a use license assignable to third parties and/or for the collection of usage metrics. We do not seek to commercialize your photo, but rather we are interested in spreading it if they are newsworthy and relevant to the socio-cultural historical development.

You can always change the visibility of the photo and make it private again and withdraw the license of use that will be effective from the moment you decide to change it but will not grant a retroactive revoke of the license once distributed.

EVENTS.png

events

All user events, that you create or that you are invited to, each user will always own their photo and can withdraw from the event whenever they want. In this case, the storage of the image will be the responsibility of the author of the image. If you share a photo to an event, everyone with access to the event will be able to see your photo. This will apply only to photos that you decide to share to the event, those that you keep private or shared between contacts can only be seen by who you decide and they still will be able to watch them ordered within the event.

The photos you share do not add to the storage quota of your contacts since you are not giving them the photo, but rather sharing an access link to it that you can always revoke whenever you want.

For public events, everyone will be able to watch them. If you decide to share a photo to the event, the storage cost will not be at your expense, therefore the event administrator will pay for the storage of your photo and may remove it from the event if it considers it to be against its editorial line. As compensation for paying us for the storage of your photo, we will provide them with significant anonymous metrics of their events so they can better understand how they operate and what was liked the most. In no case will they monitor your activity nor will know who the author of the images is.

reporting system

We want to be a platform that saves history, in all its forms. As is known, part of our history has moments that are not entirely "luminous", but still with historical relevance. For this reason, we have established a reporting system so that the user can report content with 3 different criteria that we will review with the highest possible reaction speed.

If the content is considered to fall within any of these criteria, we will change its visibility to private and it will not be able to be shared publicly on the platform again. We will save it to prevent it from being republished. We believe in moderation between users and we want to offer the necessary tools so that they can do it with the least possible effort.

  1. Attempts against my person: You cannot defame or directly affect a person in a bad way.

  2. Inappropriate content: If it does not correspond to an image of historical value and/or is of a personal nature.

  3. Violent content: If it is an image that represents an act and/or extreme violence.

suggested usage criteria

When you upload a photo, think about whether it really represents something of historical value... imagine seeing those images 10 years in the future. Try not to upload duplicate images or images that look very similar... choose the one you consider best. 

Do not publicly upload personal content or content from private spaces, make public only what really corresponds to being seen by the whole world.
