Terms and Conditions

Welcome to Virtabook!

VirtaBook builds technologies and services that enable people to connect with each other, build communities and grow businesses.  except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Products are provided to you by virtabook, Open Source Social Network.

We don’t charge you to use Virtabook or the other products and services covered by these Terms. Instead, businesses and organisations pay us to show you ads for their products and services. By using our Products, you agree that we can show you ads that we think will be relevant to you and your interests. We use your personal data to help determine which ads to show you.

We don’t sell your personal data to advertisers, and we don’t share information that directly identifies you (such as your name, email address or other contact information) with advertisers unless you give us specific permission. Instead, advertisers can tell us things such as the kind of audience that they want to see their ads, and we show those ads to people who may be interested. We provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads that help them understand how people are interacting with their content. 

 Our mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To help advance this mission, we provide the products and services described below -: 

Provide a personalised experience for you:

Your experience on Virtabook is unlike anyone else's: from the posts, stories, events, ads and other content that you see in News Feed or our video platform to the Pages that you like and other features that you might use, such as Trending, Marketplace and search. We use the data that we have – for example, about the connections you make, the choices and settings you select, and what you post and do on and off our Products – to personalise your experience. 

Connect you with people and Groups that you care about:

We help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses and others that matter to you across the Virtabook Products that you use. We use the data that we have to make suggestions for you and others – for example, groups to join, events to attend, post like or send a message to, shows to watch and people who you may want to become friends with. Stronger ties make for better communities, and we believe that our services are most useful when people are connected to people, groups and other etc that they care about.
