You shall be solely responsible for your own Baks/Comments Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because Bakfy is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of Bakfy, and Bakfy makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that:
(i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Bakfy to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and
(ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service.

In connection with Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not:

(ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Bakfy or any third party;
(iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;

Ability to Accept Terms of Service
You affirm that you are either at least 18 years of age as Bakfy is not intended for non-adults and capable (both mentally and physically) of using the application. You totally understand the risks associated with using Bakfy, as mentioned above and in no case would consider Bakfy responsible for any mental/physical/intellectual/or any other kind of personal or collateral damage.
We strongly suggest students using Bakfy to not use it during classroom hours or in any way which may hamper your studies. However, neither Bakfy nor its users hold any responsibility regarding any kind of bad influence or any kind of unsound effect on a user. Also Bakfy agrees to use names of institutions for creating groups where users can interact. The use of any other kind of propriety material or information by Bakfy is liable for punishment. However, Bakfy does not hold any responsibility for the same being done by any user. All the user information is completely anonymous and Bakfy does not share user information with 3rd party under any influence, but Bakfy reserve the right to share the user information with 3rd party under critical circumstances and/or legal cases. Bakfy is a social platform to connect all students of a college and we hope the users find it useful. Also, Bakfy would take necessary steps to authenticate users and make sure that users of a particular group at Bakfy actually belong to that group. But Bakfy is not responsible for any dilution in this regards. Users are requested to report to Bakfy if they feel certain person doesn't belong to a particular college or institution.
Bakfy reserves the right to modify the terms of service at any time. So we recommend the users to revisit the terms of service agreement to stay aware of the changes. It can be accessed at our website (www.bakfy.me). Your continued use of the Bakfy Service constitutes your agreement to this Terms of Service and any amendments.
