Terms of Service
The following Terms of Service as published on our website ("Terms") govern your access to and use of the Ceo.Care application and website (the "Service"), and any video, sound, text, graphics, or other materials sent, received, stored or otherwise appearing in the Service (collectively referred to as "Content").
Basic description of the Service
Ceo.Care is a web based video conversation service that allows you to have video conversations with others in the browser simply by having individual participants typing in the same URL in the browser window. Typing in the same URL will make the participants appear in the same room where you can talk to each other with voice and text chat and see each other with transmitted video. You do not have to install any software or plugins to use Ceo.Care. You also do not have to register or log in to use the service.
Video and sound communicated in Ceo.Care, is only seen by the people who are present in a room at the time the content is communicated. It is not disclosed to anyone who are not present in a room. You should be aware that by default a room is open, so anyone who knows the url can enter the room simply by typing the URL in the browser. If anyone enters a room you are present in, you can see them in the room. You can prevent others from entering a room by locking the room. When a room is locked, only room owners and member key holders can enter a room.
Chat messages communicated in a room can be seen by people who are present in the room when the message is sent and by people who enter the room during the same chat session. A session ends when there are no people in a room any more. At this time, all messages sent in the chat session will be deleted and can no longer be viewed by anyone.
You can claim a room as your own room. This will give you control over the room, and give you the ability to customize it for your own communication needs. When you claim a room, you enter your email address or phone number. You will then get a link that provides access to the owner privileges for the room. In some countries, you need to create a profile to claim a room. Any time you need to log in we will send a one-time code to your registered email or phone number. Room owners can customize a room e.g. by setting the background image in the room and by using other customisation options that is or may be provided in the service in the future. Only room owners can set the lock for rooms that have been claimed and the lock will be retained when everyone has left the room. Only room owners are able to enter the room when it is locked without asking someone inside the room to let them in. A crown symbol will be shown on the video feed of a room owner to make it apparent who is the owner.
In the countries where we allow profile creation, you will also have a contact list. People you talk to who also ave a user will automatically be added to your contact list. You can invite people to talk by clicking on them in the list. You can also invite someone with a pre-filled SMS by entering their mobile number. It is possible to upload your phone contacts through the iPhone app. When you click someone in the contact list we will send a notification which includes your name and room URL. Notifications are sent via SMS, email, iPhone app or Chrome extension, depending on the receiving user's settings. People who visit your unlocked room when you are not there can click a button to ask you to join.
We retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
You understand that through your use of the Services you consent to the following collection and use of this information.
Voice and video communicated in a room is not stored anywhere in our system. Chat messages might be stored in our system to be able to provide a chat message history for a room.
When you claim a room we collect room code and email address. This information is stored and subsequently used to give access to the claimed room. Room code is not stored in clear text in our system. In some countries we require that you create a profile to be able to claim a room. In the profile, we store your photo (not required), name, and at least one of the following: phone number or email address. Your display name and profile picture will be visible to people you talk to as it will appear in their contact list. Your contact information will not be visible to other users.
In countries where the contact list function is available, you will be visible in other users’ contact lists after you have talked to them.
When you customize a room by setting the background image of a room, the image will be stored in the service. The uploaded image will be accessible to people who enter the room when the room isn't locked.
The Content stored in the Service will be stored securely with one or more of our subcontractors, and may also be temporarily stored in other locations to facilitate the transmission of the Content to and from your devices. We will ensure that any use of subcontractors located abroad is done in compliance with applicable law.
Should you choose to deregister with our services we will delete all your Content.
All communication between your browser and Ceo.Care is transmitted over an encrypted connection (SSL). Video and audio transmitted in the service is sent directly between the participants in a room and is encrypted (SRTP) with client generated encryption keys. In some cases, due to NAT/firewall restrictions, the encrypted data will be relayed through our server.

Currently, an application fee or subscription fee is charged for the Service by the Host signing up on Ceo.Care. The fee is determined by the Host themselves and Ceo.Care is providing the platfrom to collect fees on Host’s behalf.
