§ 1 Objective Use of myLike
Creating a myLike standard user profile is free of charge – except in case of subscription to paid services (to be released on the website www.myLike.io for further information) – for commercial usage and may be used in connection with the described profile for commercial activities.
As a standard user, you may store information, evaluate and comment on places and services (e.g. hotels, restaurants, physicians), as well as organize the aforementioned in lists and supplement the lists with pictures and videos. The visibility of the evaluated objects can be set up individually and shared with other users internally and externally by myLike. The myLike user can view, search, take over and evaluate approved contents contributed by other users. You can also establish groups or join existing groups. The administered number and size of groups is limited for standard users.
In addition, commercial users have the option to individually configure a recommendation, posted by other users – a so-called myLike – which concerns their business, after being approved by the provider and to supplement it with content (e.g. location – and contact details, images). Friends and followers can be sent information via the news channel (“News”).
The provider enables commercial users to create groups, which can be founded and managed or administered in either open or closed form. This allows the group administrator to create and distribute myLikes, lists and paths within the group (so-called concierge function). Upon request, commercial users can also create a news channel, over which they may send information. The user receives enquiries from other myLike users via his stated email address, as well as information from groups, of which he is a member.
