Status TAG Terms of Chat Service Agreement
These Terms of Service (this "Agreement") set forth the terms and conditions governing the use of the services provided by Status TAG Inc. ("Status TAG," "we," or "us") through its mobile application (collectively, the "Service"). We urge you to carefully review this Agreement. By indicating your acceptance of this Agreement or by using the Service in any manner, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with Status TAG. You represent that you are of legal age and possess the capacity to enter into binding agreements. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions, you must refrain from using the Service.
IMPORTANT: ARBITRATION CLAUSE - This Agreement includes an arbitration clause, which means certain disputes must be resolved through arbitration, rather than in court or through a jury trial. Please read this Agreement thoroughly.
1. Nature of the Service
General: The Service facilitates user access to both general Chat and Live Crowd Chat features, encompassing text-based chat interactions enriched with emojis. The general chat feature enables user-to-user messaging, while the Live Crowd Chat feature permits real-time conversations with other users present in the same hangout zone.
Privacy Settings: It is important to note that both the General Chat and Live Crowd Chat features come equipped with individual privacy settings, offering users complete control over who can initiate conversations with them.
Children: The Service is not intended for users under the age of 12+, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 12+. If you are under 12, you are prohibited from registering as a User or providing personal information to Status TAG.
To utilize the Chat Services, users must create a user account on Status TAG by logging in through preferred methods and subsequently providing the required profile information. Additional information may also be requested. Users affirm and warrant that the information provided is accurate, current, and complete. Users are responsible for their account creation, registration on Status TAG, and all Service usage employing any User credentials issued or chosen by them. The confidentiality of all such credentials and passwords is the user's responsibility.
3. Our Ownership Rights
The Service, including all elements of the Status TAG website and mobile applications (collectively, "Our Property"), is the property of Status TAG or its licensors. All software, algorithms, functionality, inventions, concepts, text, images, sound, music, videos, marks, logos, compilations, content, and technology employed for the provision of the Service or otherwise embodied in, displayed through, or provided directly or indirectly via the Service, are considered "Our Property." This includes formats, templates, methodologies, rules, algorithms, and software used to create Your Content (as defined in this Agreement). Unless expressly permitted otherwise by this Agreement, any use, copying, creation of derivative works, transmission, posting, linking, deep linking, framing, redistribution, sale, decompilation, modification, reverse engineering, translation, or disassembly of Our Property is strictly prohibited. Users acknowledge that Our Property has been developed and maintained by Status TAG at significant time and financial expense. Unauthorized use or disclosure of Our Property for commercial gain would cause Status TAG significant harm for which damages would be inadequate, and users consent to Status TAG obtaining injunctive relief without the need to post a bond to prevent any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement. Violation of this paragraph may result in criminal or civil penalties.
The marks "Status TAG," and any associated logos, whether registered or unregistered, are trademarks or service marks of Status TAG or its licensors. Users are prohibited from using these marks, or any other marks or logos owned by Status TAG, in any manner likely to cause confusion or that disparages or discredits Status TAG.
In order to operate and provide our Services, users grant Status TAG a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, create derivative works of, display, and perform the information, including content, uploaded, submitted, stored, sent, or received on or through our Services. The rights granted under this license are solely for the purpose of operating and providing our Services, which includes displaying users' profile pictures and bios, transmitting their messages, and storing undelivered messages on our servers for up to 30 days while delivery is attempted.
