The LoveChain Terms of Use – General

 

The LoveChain is a social media platform utilising blockchain technology created, operated and managed by The LoveChain Pty Ltd ACN 631 780 786 (“LoveChain”).  It gives users an immutable platform to record, celebrate and share their love of significant others.  The LoveChain builds technologies and services that enable people to connect with each other, build communities and grow businesses. On the LoveChain users will contribute to the creation of a diverse ecosystem which is powered by the LOVR rewards token. These rewards can be exchanged for discounts and goods and services with merchant partners of the platform contributing to the creation of memories that are everlasting. 

These Terms of Use govern your use of the LoveChain website and platform, LOVR rewards tokens, other products, features, apps, services, technologies and software that we offer (“Products”) except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Products are provided to you by The LoveChain Pty Ltd. 

We don’t charge you to use the LoveChain or the other products and services covered by these Terms of Use. Instead, businesses and organisations pay us to show you ads for their products and services. By using our Products, you agree that we, if you elect to do so, 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. 

On the LoveChain you have the ability to post and share with the World videos created by you by uploading them onto the LoveChain website and platform. Our Terms of Service – Image Content explains how we use and manage things such as photographs, images or videos that you upload onto the LoveChain for the World to see.

The LoveChain Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and store your personal information and data to determine some of the advertisements that you see and provide all of the other services described below. You can also manage your privacy settings by reviewing the privacy choices you have selected about how we can use your data.

  1. How our services are funded 

It does not cost a user to use the LoveChain. Instead of charging a user to be on the Platform, you can agree that we can show you advertisements that businesses and organisations pay us to promote on and off the Platform.   

Basing the LoveChain on a decentralised network is important primarily as it satisfies the objective of giving members ownership of their data. Further, since privacy continues to become a concern for social media users generally limitations around the type and volume of advertisements need to be addressed in a way which improves the user experience. With the LoveChain Platform users can decide the extent of their interaction with the Platform and the amount of advertisements that they are exposed to.  We collect and use your personal data in order to provide the services described above for you. You can learn about how we collect and use your data in our Privacy Policy.  You have controls over the types of advertisements and advertisers you see, and the types of information we use to determine which advertisements we show you. 

Other ways in which the LoveChain supports the services it provides to you is by:

  1. receiving a commission from our merchant partners each time a transaction is made with one of our merchant partners in the LoveChain marketplace on the Platform; and/or
  2. receiving transaction and merchant fees each time a transaction is made within the LoveChain marketplace on the Platform.

  1. Disclaimers; No Warranties 

The Platform and any content, information or other materials made available in conjunction with or through the Platform are provided “as is” and without warranties of any kind either express or implied, to the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law. The LoveChain, and its licensors and partners, disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of proprietary rights. The LoveChain and its licensors and partners do not warrant that the features and functionality of the Platform will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Platform or the servers that make available the features and functionality thereof are free of viruses or other harmful components.  Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstances will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms of Use or the LoveChain Platform, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. 

Certain jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the foregoing disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you might have additional rights. 

We do not control or direct what people and others do or say, and we are not responsible for their actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or any content that they share (including offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful and other objectionable content).

The LoveChain reserves the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us and you agree to cooperate with our defence of these claims.

 

  1. Limitation of liability and damages 

Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, will the LoveChain or its affiliates, contractors, employees, agents or third-party partners or suppliers, be liable to you for any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages that result from or relate to the Platform, including your use thereof, or any other interactions with the LoveChain, even if the LoveChain or a LoveChain authorised representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event will the LoveChain or its affiliates, contractors, employees, agents or third-party partners or suppliers total liability to you for any or all damages, losses, and causes of action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or use of the Platform exceed the amount of USD$50,000.  Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusion may not apply to you, in which case, the LoveChain’s liability will be limited to the extent permitted by law. 

 

  1. Disputes 

The LoveChain endeavours to limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and us. If a dispute does arise, however, it’s useful to know up front where it can be resolved and what laws will apply. 

If you are a consumer, the laws of the country in which you reside will apply to any claim, cause of action or dispute that you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms of Use, and you may resolve your claim in any competent court in that country that has jurisdiction over the claim. In all other cases, you agree that the claim must be resolved in the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales, Australia and you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales for the purpose of litigating any such claim and any courts which have jurisdiction to hear appeals from any of those courts and you waive any right to object to any proceedings being brought in those courts. 

You also agree that he laws of the State of New South Wales will govern these Terms of Use without regard to conflict of law provisions. 

  1. Claims 

You agree, aside from any applicable law that says otherwise, that any cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms of Use or the Platform must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arises. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. 

 

  1. Updating our Terms of Use 

We work constantly to improve the LoveChain Platform and as a result, we may need to update these Terms of Use from time to time to accurately reflect our services and practices. We will only make changes if the provisions are no longer appropriate or if they are incomplete, and only if the changes are reasonable and take due account of your interests. 

The changes to our Terms of Use will be effective thirty (30) days after we notify you of the changes by either sending you an email to the email address associated with your account or through the Platform user interface giving you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect, unless changes are required by law. Once any updated terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use the LoveChain Platform. 

We hope that you will continue using the LoveChain Platform, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms of Use and no longer want to be on the LoveChain Platform, you can delete your account at any time.

  1. consent to receive communications from the LoveChain in an electronic form; and 
  2. agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. 

The foregoing does not affect any rights you may have which cannot be waived under applicable law.

 

  1. General provisions

  1.  These Terms of Use make up the entire agreement between you and the LoveChain regarding your use of our Platform and any services associated with the Platform. They supersede any prior agreements.
  2. Some of the services on our Platform that we offer are also governed by supplemental Terms. If you use any of those services, supplemental terms will be made available and will become part of our agreement with you. For example, if you post and share with the World videos created by you by uploading them onto the LoveChain website and platform, then you will be bound by the LoveChain’s Terms of Service – Image Content which explains how we use and manage any video that you upload onto the LoveChain for the World to see. These will also form part of these Terms of Use. 
  3. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, than that provision will be deemed severed from these Terms of Use and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions which will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to enforce any of these Terms of Use, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms of Use must be made in writing and signed by us. Further, a waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use will not in any way be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms of Use. 
  4. You will not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use to anyone else without our consent.
  5. You may designate a person (called a legacy contact) to manage your account if it is memorialised. Only your legacy contact or a person who you have identified in a valid will or similar document expressing clear consent to disclose your content upon death or incapacity will be able to seek disclosure from your account after it is memorialised.
  6. These Terms of Use do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights. All of our rights and obligations under these Terms of Use are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise.
  7. You should know that we may need to change the username for your account in certain circumstances (for example, if someone else claims the username and it appears unrelated to the name that you use in everyday life). We will inform you in advance if we have to do this and explain why.
  8. We always appreciate your feedback and other suggestions about our Platform and services. But you should know that we may use them without any restriction or obligation to compensate you, and we are under no obligation to keep them confidential.
  9. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
