Our Growave App Privacy Notice describes our collection and use of personal data in connection with your access to and the App use.

These Terms and any policies, including our Privacy Notice for the App and any operating rules published on the Growave website (https://www.growave.io) regarding relationships with the Merchants, constitute the entire legally binding agreement and understanding between Merchants and Growave governing their use of the App (“Agreement”).

When you use the App, you with this declare and warrant that:

  • you have read, understand, and hereby agree to be legally bound by and to comply with these Terms in full;
  • you are an individual with full legal capacity, which means you have reached the legal age and are not restricted otherwise (otherwise, you can use the App exclusively with the involvement of a parent or guardian);

  • according to your local jurisdiction, you are eligible to enter into the Agreement and have no restriction to use the App;

Growave Services

The App provides the following functionality (“Services”):

  • User-Generated Content (Instagram shoppable galleries) – enables Merchants to collect, organise and use the content that may include, without limitation, text, videos, photographs and other user-generated content created or otherwise supplied by your customers, end-users or parties with whom the Merchants interact (“End-User”) on their website, social media services, and third-party websites.
  • Loyalty and Referrals – enables Merchants to provide End-Users with the ability to:
  • earn loyalty points from you and apply applicable point balances to purchases;
  • earn an incentive when the End-User refers a third-party purchaser to the Merchants (“Loyalty and Referrals”). Your content in the context of loyalty and referrals includes information related to an End-User’s participation in a loyalty or referral program (for example, the number of the End User’s loyalty points).
  • Reviews – enables the Merchants to invite End-Users to write Reviews. “Reviews” are the content that may include, without limitation, opinions, product or service ratings or reviews, articles, written expressions, in any form or media, and/or any works of authorship created by the End-User, you or any other third party and may include any reviews that are imported through the App from third-party websites.
  • Wishlist – enables the Merchants to engage with End-Users by utilising the products they add to wishlists. With this tool, the Merchants let customers save their favourite products to their wishlist with easy access.
  • Social login – enables the Merchants to offer End-Users auto-login through social networks accounts to enter and sign-up on your website.

The payments will be charged monthly or annually (depending on chosen subscription plan) after the end of the trial period. The exact term of charging is defined according to Shopify's policies.
