To sum up the legal jargon below: 

Life Lapse does require an email address to access our free app. I ask for emails so I can send tutorials & keep you in the loop with updates on the app, giveaways, contests & more. I do not spam you. If you don't want to give your email address, I understand, however, you will not be able to access the app & I'll be sad to see you go. I do not sell your email address to other companies.  The emails are collected and sent through a third party platform that is GDP compliant. 

Life Lapse cannot access what you are creating and does not own the videos you create with it. As a Canadian based company, I pride myself in being polite. If you share your videos on social media, I get pretty excited and will likely comment and ask "Hey, thanks for using Life Lapse, Love this video, mind if I regram and credit you?". If your video is REALLY kick-ass, I contact the user and offer payment if I want to use the video in marketing ads. Because even though I'm making zero dollars from this app right now, I have the integrity to pay people for their content and let's be honest, it's 2018 and it wouldn't take long for a business that is doing shady sh*t to get exposed on social media. The rights are no different than every other app out there - Instagram, Facebook, etc. 

If you have any questions regarding the terms of use, please feel free to reach me directly at hello@lifelapseapp.com. 

Cheers - Sarah Boland, Founder & CEO.
