     Term and Conditions
Please read the OTAMate Technology Ltd 'Terms and Conditions' covering all aspects of Service and Use.


The Service is based in the UK, aimed at UK residents and intended for access and use by UK residents only. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any future developments or new features, including the release of new website properties, shall be subject to the Terms.

All Users are hereby licensed to use Phonewebcam and to download and use our client software and connect to our servers for the sole purpose of using Phonewebcam, subject to their compliance with these Terms.

  •   To use the PC applications, you must provide all equipment, including a computer and modem or other access device necessary to establish a connection to the World Wide Web, and pay any service fees associated with such access.
  •   To use the Phonewebcam Viewer, you must have a Java-enabled handset with internet connection, and pay any operator charges associated with such access.

You understand and agree that the Service is provided on an "AS-IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis, and at your own risk. OTAMate Technology assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery, failure to store or unauthorized access to any User Content.

You must not misuse any of our customer service facilities. You must not deliberately enter false information into any of the forms on our Site, or in Phonewebcam products.

Where a third party service or content provider ("Provider") is identified as providing a particular service or application forming part of the Service then you may also be contracting directly with such Provider and your access to and use of that service or application may be subject to additional terms and conditions.

Parental guidance
