Such Content may originate from us, you, other users or third parties, as well as from collaborative editing.

As a Registered User you can engage with other Users by following their activities, commenting on, or sharing their Content. You will be presented with the activities and Content of Users you follow as well as other Content we believe you may be interested in according to your account preferences.
Our messaging feature allows you to chat with other Registered Users, either privately or in a group. Likewise, other Users can communicate with you. If you do not want a certain User to send you messages, you may block that user via the Service.
At any time, you may change your personal preferences and the way you use the Service, by using the tools provided therein and on your personal account, as may be available from time to time.

Consultations. Registered Users may also engage with other users in order to seek their consulting services, as further described within the relevant sections of the Service (“Consultations” and “Consultants”). We encourage you to treat any Content posted on or through the Service and the Consultations with caution and discretion. We are not responsible, do not guarantee and make no representation or judgment as to the Content and Consultations, such as to the safety or effectiveness of following the advice or recommendations included in the Content or the Consultations, or the Content’s or Consultations’ accuracy, helpfulness (or rated helpfulness), adequacy to your age or needs, legality, appropriateness, authenticity, validity, truthfulness, morality, uses that third parties may make, or as to any offerings, dealings, transactions or interactions made by or between you and third parties in connection with the Content or the Service. The relevant Consultant is solely responsible for the accuracy, adequacy, completeness, credibility, authenticity, validity, integrity or legality the Consultations and the services they offer. We are not liable for it.
The inclusion of any Content on or through the Service does not constitute our endorsement, sponsorship, recommendation or encouragement to suggest, or comply with any advice, engage in any interaction, activity, transaction or dealings with any third party, or an authorization or representation of our affiliation with any third party.

Any and all communications and interactions between you and third parties, including Consultants, and all consequences resulting from the above, are strictly between you and such third party. We are not liable for it. Other than facilitating the interaction for Consultations, we are not actively involved in those communications, interactions, dealings, engagements and transactions.


WHEN YOU USE THE SERVICE TO SUBMIT CONTENT, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT:

  • You are the rightful owner of all rights to such Content, or are lawfully licensed by all the rightful owners to submit to, and post such Content on, the Service;
  • You are lawfully entitled to grant us the rights and licenses in and to such Content, as contemplated by these terms;
  • You lawfully obtained the consent of all individuals depicted, shown or referred to in the Content, to include them in the Content and to use that Content for the purposes and in the manner contemplated by these Terms. With respect to minors depicted, shown or referred to in the Content, you lawfully obtained the consent of their parents or legal guardians, as well as such minors’ approval;
  • Creating the Content, submitting it to and posting it on the Service, does not infringe any rights of third parties, including intellectual property rights, privacy rights and publicity rights.

Subject to our Privacy Policy, (and except as provided in the following paragraph) by submitting or posting Content to or on the Service, you grant us a perpetual, royalty-free, free-of-charge, worldwide, non-exclusive, sub-licensable and transferrable license, to use such Content commercially. This includes, among others, copying, distributing, posting and making derivative works of the Content, for our publicly posting and utilizing such Content for business purposes, on any platform, including in connection with commercial ads or promotions, in original, derived, or modified form (the “License”). You further waive all moral rights and rights of attribution with respect to your Content. We may, at any time, in our sole discretion and without prior notice to you, remove, edit, modify, or reclassify any Content you submitted to the Service, without any liability to you.

Your individual contributions to a timeline on the Service are integrated with the timeline contributions by other users and by our innovative timeline algorithm. These sources together create an aggregated and crowdsourced timeline (”Aggregated Timeline”), and as a result, your timeline contributions become an inseparable and indivisible part of the Aggregate Timeline. In these circumstances, splintering the ownership of the Aggregated Timeline into numerous users is impractical. Greater benefits arise in having the timeline centrally managed by Wisdo, rather than snippets scattered across numerous users.

With that in mind, we will fully and exclusively own all intellectual property rights in and to all Aggregated Timelines, including their steps and phases. You irrevocably assign to us all intellectual property rights you may have in and to all Aggregated Timelines. You further waive all moral rights and rights of attribution with respect to your contribution to any Aggregated Timeline.

Use of the App is free of charge, except for the Consultations or other services within the App that may be subject to fees at the rates and schemes as posted on the relevant pages of the Service ("Fee-Based Services"). Fee-Based Services can only be paid through the payment methods we establish from time to time. We may also, at any time and in our sole discretion, change a free-of-charge feature to a fee-based feature, in which case we will inform you about it.

Consultants who offer Consultations through the Service will be entitled to receive payment for the Consultations only if and when a User signs-up to, and actually pays for, the Consultations.

We will charge Consultants who offer Consultations through the Service commission at the rates and schemes presented during registration. A Consultant may receive and withdraw payments for the Consultations Users have paid for according to the terms and conditions presented during registration. In the event of Consultant’s withdrawal, any applicable transaction fees and taxes will be deducted from the US Dollar value of the Consultant’s account balance.


The Consultant is solely responsible for reporting such income to the relevant taxation authorities, and paying all taxes applicable to the payout, as required by the applicable tax laws. If we request from a Consultant, he or she will promptly complete and submit to us all tax forms, tax certificates or tax authorizations we deem necessary, under the applicable tax laws. Payments accumulated in the Consultant’s account are non-transferable and non-assignable. Consultants are not entitled to any interest or linkage differentials on payments accumulated in their account. Failing to Pay. Failing to settle your payments due for Fee-Based Services will entitle us to terminate these terms or block your access to the App, without regard to any other remedies available to us under applicable law.

Regardless of your place of residence or where you access or use the Service from, these Terms and your use of the Service will be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel, excluding any otherwise applicable rules of conflict of laws, which would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of Israel.
The competent courts located in the Tel-Aviv-Jaffa district will have exclusive and sole jurisdiction over any dispute, claim or controversy arising from, or in connection with, the Service and its use, and with respect to any matter relating to the validity, applicability, performance or interpretation of these Terms.

Ad Policy

+

Sometimes, Wisdo will feature endorsed, sponsored, or promoted content. This could include posts where:

  • A third party (person, organization or company) has arranged directly with us to feature their brand, message, or product in our content.
  • The post includes a message that appears to reflect the opinions, beliefs, or experiences of that sponsor or content creator.
We will always be 100% transparent with these posts. They will be clearly labeled as sponsored or promoted, so you will know every single time this type of content appears.
Full transparency is the right thing to do – and we have a legal obligation not to mislead our members, which we take extremely seriously. We comply with all relevant laws, regulations and industry codes.
Wisdo also requires anyone who creates sponsored content for us to respect the following principles and guidelines (in addition to meeting all relevant legal requirements):
  • The “truth-in-advertising principle”. Endorsed content will always be honest and not misleading. Sponsored or endorsed posts should reflect the honest opinion of the content creator and will not be used to make any illegal claims.
  • Disclosure. There may be times where a content creator and the marketers of a product or service may have a personal or business relationship. For example, if the content creator was paid or given a gift to create the post, we will tell you so.
  • Clarity. We won’t hide or bury any disclosures. You’ll see them in clear, unambiguous language that’s prominently placed and easy to understand.
These disclosures will be:
  • Close to any claims or endorsed content.
  • Written in an easy-to-read font.
  • In a shade that stands out against the background.
  • For video content, on the screen long enough to be noticed, read, and understood.
  • For audio content, read at a pace that is easy for users to follow and in words that ordinary users will understand.
If you need further information, please read the FAQs on online disclosures, issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). You can also send us questions anytime at wearewisdo@wisdo.com

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the subject matter herein, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous negotiations and oral representations, agreements and statements.
These Terms may only be modified by written amendment duly executed by us, in accordance to the “CHANGES TO THE TERMS” clause above. No waiver, concession, extension, representation, alteration, addition or derogation from the Terms by us, or pursuant to the Terms, will be effective unless consented to explicitly and executed in writing by our authorized representative.
Failure on our part to demand performance of any provision in the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any of our rights under the Terms.

Notwithstanding the provisions of the Israel Assignment of Obligations Law-1969, we may assign these Terms in their entirety, including all right, duties, liabilities and obligations therein, upon notice to you and without obtaining your further specific consent, to a third-party, upon a merger, acquisition, change of control or the sale of all or substantially all of our equity or assets, whereby virtue of such assignment, the assignee assumes in our stead, all right, duties, liabilities and obligations hereunder.
The section headings in the Terms are included for convenience only and shall take no part in the interpretation or construing of the Terms.
If any provision of the Terms is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable by a competent court, then the provision shall be performed and enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law to reflect as closely as possible, the original intention of that provision, and the remaining provisions of the Terms shall continue to remain in full force and effect.
