Terms and Conditions

Last updated 12 Feb 2020

Submarine Two is developed and maintained by Julian (@insanj) Weiss. Any inquiries should be sent to submarineforios@gmail.com. All agreements are available online at http://submarineforios.com/legal.html as well as in the Submarine Two app.

The following text meets the minimum requirements specified by Apple as of 2020 Jan 9, available online at http://apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/dev/minterms/, http://developer.apple.com/app-store/review/guidelines/#legal.

By using Submarine Two, you (the End-User) are subject to Reddit's Privacy Policy and User Agreement as well as any other services or websites you use within the app. In addition, by using an Apple device and the Apple App Store, you are subject to the App Store Terms and Conditions available at: https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html.

Submarine Two offers an autorenewing subscription called Pro Mode (stylized "✭ Pro Mode") available at two lengths:

In version 2.0.0 of Submarine Two (the first published on the App Store) purchasing either of these will remove the 5 item restriction on the Submarine Two Dock. In version 2.1.0 of Submarine purchasing either of these will opt the user into Push Notifications. By doing this, the user is agreeing to allow Submarine Two to authenticate using its own servers and independently check the user's Reddit inbox for unread content. To provide this capability, the 3rd party services Heroku and OneSignal are used. Only if the user has signed up for Pro Mode will these services be used.

To revoke Submarine Two's access to your Reddit account, or prevent Heroku or OneSignal from being used in connection with your Reddit account or Apple device, you can revoke permission for Submarine Two to use your Reddit account in the Reddit settings at any time.

By purchasing Pro Mode, the user is agreeing to the End User Agreements and Privacy Policies for Heroku and OneSignal available as of 12 Feb 2020 here:

Subscriptions automatically renew unless cancelled within 24 hours of current period end. Manage your plan in iTunes Account Settings after purchase. By purchasing Pro Mode, you are agreeing to the Licensed Applicaiton User License Agreement available at: https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/dev/stdeula/.
