Veke User Agreement

This Veke User Agreement (“Terms”) applies to your access to and use of the websites, mobile apps, widgets, APIs, emails, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) provided by Veke Corporation (“Veke,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).

Veke is for fun and is intended to be a place for your entertainment, but we still need some basic rules. By accessing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use our Services.

1. Your Access to the Services

No one under 13 is allowed to use or access the Services. We may offer additional Services that require you to be older to use them, so please read all notices and any Additional Terms carefully when you access the Services.

By using the Services, you state that:

  • You are at least 13 years old and over the minimum age required by the laws of your country of residence to access and use the Services;

  • You can form a binding contract with Veke, or, if you are over 13 but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, that your legal guardian has reviewed and agrees to these Terms;

  • You are not barred from using the Services under all applicable laws; and

  • You have not been permanently suspended or removed from the Services.

If you are accepting these Terms on behalf of another legal entity, including a business or government entity, you represent that you have full legal authority to bind such entity to these Terms.

2. Privacy

Veke’s Privacy Policy explains how and why we collect, use, and share information about you when you access or use our Services. You understand that through your use of the Services, you consent to the collection and use of this information as set forth in the Privacy Policy.

3. Your Use of the Services

Subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with these Terms, Veke grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited license to: (a) install and use a copy of our mobile application associated with the Services that is obtained from a legitimate marketplace on a mobile device owned or controlled by you; and (b) access and use the Services. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you by these Terms.

Except and solely to the extent such a restriction is impermissible under applicable law, you may not, without our written agreement:

  • license, sell, transfer, assign, distribute, host, or otherwise commercially exploit the Services or Content;

  • modify, prepare derivative works of, disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer any part of the Services or Content; or

  • access the Services or Content in order to build a similar or competitive website, product, or service.

We are always improving our Services. This means we may add or remove features, products, or functionalities; we will try to notify you beforehand, but that won’t always be possible. We reserve the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Services (in whole or in part) at any time, with or without notice to you. Any future release, update, or other addition to functionality of the Services will be subject to these Terms, which may be updated from time to time. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services or any part thereof.

4. Your Veke Account and Account Security

To use certain features of our Services, you may be required to create a Veke account (an “Account”) and provide us with a username, password, and certain other information about yourself as set forth in the Privacy Policy.

You are solely responsible for the information associated with your Account and anything that happens related to your Account. You must maintain the security of your Account and immediately notify Veke if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your Account without your permission. We recommend that you use a strong password that is used only with your Account.

You will not license, sell, or transfer your Account without our prior written approval.

5. Your Content

The Services may contain information, text, links, graphics, photos, videos, audio, streams, or other materials (“Content”), including Content created with or submitted to the Services by you or through your Account (“Your Content”). We take no responsibility for and we do not expressly or implicitly endorse, support, or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any of Your Content.

By submitting Your Content to the Services, you represent and warrant that you have all rights, power, and authority necessary to grant the rights to Your Content contained within these Terms. Because you alone are responsible for Your Content, you may expose yourself to liability if you post or share Content without all necessary rights.

You retain any ownership rights you have in Your Content, but you grant Veke the following license to use that Content:

When Your Content is created with or submitted to the Services, you grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, and sublicensable license to use, copy, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, distribute, store, perform, and display Your Content and any name, username, voice, or likeness provided in connection with Your Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed anywhere in the world. This license includes the right for us to make Your Content available for syndication, broadcast, distribution, or publication by other companies, organizations, or individuals who partner with Veke. You also agree that we may remove metadata associated with Your Content, and you irrevocably waive any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to Your Content.

Any ideas, suggestions, and feedback about Veke or our Services that you provide to us are entirely voluntary, and you agree that Veke may use such ideas, suggestions, and feedback without compensation or obligation to you.

Although we have no obligation to screen, edit, or monitor Your Content, we may, in our sole discretion, delete or remove Your Content at any time and for any reason, including for violating these Terms, violating our Content Policy, or if you otherwise create or are likely to create liability for us.

6. Third-Party Content, Advertisements, and Promotions

The Services may contain links to third-party websites, products, or services, which may be posted by advertisers, our affiliates, our partners, or other users (“Third-Party Content”). Third-Party Content is not under our control, and we are not responsible for any third party’s websites, products, or services. Your use of Third-Party Content is at your own risk and you should make any investigation you feel necessary before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such Third-Party Content.

The Services may also contain sponsored Third-Party Content or advertisements. The type, degree, and targeting of advertisements are subject to change, and you acknowledge and agree that we may place advertisements in connection with the display of any Content or information on the Services, including Your Content.

If you choose to use the Services to conduct a promotion, including a contest or sweepstakes (“Promotion”), you alone are responsible for conducting the Promotion in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to creating official rules, offer terms, eligibility requirements, and compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations which govern the Promotion (such as licenses, registrations, bonds, and regulatory approval). Your Promotion must state that the Promotion is not sponsored by, endorsed by, or associated with Veke, and the rules for your Promotion must require each entrant or participant to release Veke from any liability related to the Promotion. You acknowledge and agree that we will not assist you in any way with your promotion, and you agree to conduct your Promotion at your own risk.

7. Things You Cannot Do

When using or accessing Veke, you must comply with these Terms and all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Please review the Content Policy (and, where applicable, the Broadcasting Content Policy), which are incorporated by this reference into, and made a part of, these Terms and contain Veke’s rules about prohibited content and conduct. In addition to what is prohibited in the Content Policy, you may not do any of the following:

  • Use the Services in any manner that could interfere with, disable, disrupt, overburden, or otherwise impair the Service;

  • Access, search, or collect data from the Services by any means (automated or otherwise) except as permitted in these Terms or in a separate agreement with Veke (we conditionally grant permission to crawl the Services in accordance with the parameters set forth in our robots.txt file, but scraping the Services without Veke’s prior consent is prohibited); or

  • Use the Services in any manner that we reasonably believe to be an abuse of or fraud on Veke or any payment system.

We encourage you to report content or conduct that you believe violates these Terms or our Content Policy. We also support the responsible reporting of security vulnerabilities. To report a security issue, please email contact@veke.co.

8. Moderators

Moderating a Veke community is an unofficial, voluntary position that may be available to users of the Services. We are not responsible for actions taken by the moderators. We reserve the right to revoke or limit a user’s ability to moderate at any time and for any reason or no reason, including for a breach of these Terms.

If you choose to moderate a Veke community:

  • You agree to follow the Moderator Guidelines for Healthy Communities;

  • You agree that when you receive reports related to a Veke community you moderate, you will take appropriate action, which may include removing content that violates policy and/or promptly escalating to Veke for review;

  • You are not, and may not represent that you are, authorized to act on behalf of Veke;

  • You may not enter into any agreement with a third party on behalf of Veke, or any Veke communities that you moderate, without our written approval;

  • You may not perform moderation actions in return for any form of compensation, consideration, gift, or favor from third parties;

  • If you have access to non-public information as a result of moderating a Veke community, you will use such information only in connection with your performance as a moderator; and

  • You may create and enforce rules for the Veke communities you moderate, provided that such rules do not conflict with these Terms, the Content Policy, or the Moderator Guidelines for Healthy Communities.

Veke reserves the right, but has no obligation, to overturn any action or decision of a moderator if Veke, in its sole discretion, believes that such action or decision is not in the interest of Veke or the Veke community.

Veke respects the intellectual property of others and requires that users of our Services do the same. We have a policy that includes the removal of any infringing material from the Services and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our Services who are repeat infringers.

Please see 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3) for the requirements of a proper counter notification.

10. Paid Services and Payment Information

Veke is a subscription membership. When you purchase a Veke account, you expressly agree that you are authorizing recurring payments, and that payments will be made to Veke by the payment method and at the recurring intervals (monthly or annually) you have agreed to, until the subscription is canceled by you or by Veke.

You can manage your Veke account subscription and Payment Information by accessing your Account’s user settings or via your mobile app. We automatically process your Payment Information on the calendar day corresponding to the start of your subscription. If your subscription starts on a day not contained in the next month, you will be billed on the last day of that month. Mobile renewal processing dates may vary subject to any additional third-party terms. If your Payment Information is declined, you must provide new Payment Information or your Veke subscription will be canceled. If you provide new Payment Information and are successfully charged, your new subscription period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.

You can cancel your Veke account any time. Your subscription automatically renews (each month or year) unless you cancel at least 24 hours before your subscription period ends. To cancel your subscription, follow the instructions in your Account’s user settings. If you purchased your Veke subscription using your Apple ID, you can cancel your subscription through your device’s Account Settings or in the Manage Subscriptions section of the Apple App Store. If you purchased your Veke account subscription using Google Play, you can cancel your subscription by visiting the Subscriptions section of Google Play. Your subscription will remain active from the time you cancel until the end of your current billing period, and you will not receive a refund or credit for any remaining days in your current billing period. You acknowledge at the end of your subscription, you will lose access to all features associated with your Veke account including, without limitation, any features enabling you to save or store limited-time Virtual Goods exclusive to your Veke account.

11. Virtual Goods

Virtual Goods are virtual currency or items, including Veke coins and awards. Virtual Goods have no monetary value (i.e., are not a cash account or equivalent) and do not constitute currency or property of any type). Users have no property, proprietary, intellectual property, ownership, or monetary interest in promotional or purchased Virtual Goods, which remain Veke digital content subject to these Terms (including, without limitation, the limited license set forth in Section 3 of the Veke User Agreement). Virtual Goods are non-refundable and non-transferable between Accounts. Virtual Goods awarded to other users will not be returned (e.g., if you award another user, you cannot take the Virtual Goods back). You may not sell, barter, or trade any Virtual Goods, or offer to sell or trade any Virtual Goods. Any such attempted transfer will be null and void.

Veke may modify its Virtual Goods at its sole discretion, and such modifications may make some or all Virtual Goods more or less common, desirable, effective, or functional. The number of Virtual Goods required to use other Virtual Goods (e.g., Coins needed to award another user) may be increased or decreased, any Virtual Good may be withdrawn, and restrictions on any Virtual Good redemption may be imposed at any time, even though such changes may affect the value or utility of the Virtual Good, or the ability to obtain certain Virtual Goods.

Veke does not guarantee that the Virtual Goods will continually be offered for any particular length of time. Veke may modify, suspend, or terminate Virtual Goods for any or no reason, in its sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability. In accumulating Virtual Goods, users may not rely upon the continued availability of any Virtual Goods.

12. Paid Services Obtained Through Third Parties

If you obtain a Veke account subscription or Virtual Goods via a third party (e.g., Google Play, Apple App Store), that purchase may be further subject to the third party’s terms as agreed between you and such third party. For Paid Services purchases obtained via a third party, your billing relationship will be directly with the applicable third party. Any fees charged for your Virtual Goods or Veke account subscription will be billed by the applicable third party using the payment information you have provided to such third party.

13. Intellectual Property

The Services are owned and operated by Veke. The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, data, computer code, products, services, trademarks, and all other elements of the Services (“Materials”) provided by Veke are protected by intellectual property and other laws. All Materials included in the Services are the property of Veke or its third-party licensors. You acknowledge and agree that you shall not acquire any ownership rights whatsoever by downloading Materials or by purchasing Veke Premium or Virtual Goods. Except as expressly authorized by Veke, and subject to Veke’s Brand Guidelines, you may not make use of the Materials. Veke reserves all rights to the Materials not granted expressly in these Terms.

14. Indemnity

Except to the extent prohibited by law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Veke, its affiliates, and their respective, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, third-party service providers, and licensors (the “Veke Entities”) harmless from and against any claim or demand made by any third party, and any related liability, damage, loss, and expense (including costs and attorneys’ fees) due to, arising out of, or in connection with: (a) your use of the Services, (b) your violation of these Terms, (c) your violation of applicable laws or regulations, or (d) Your Content. We reserve the right to control the defense of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims.

15. Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability

Nothing in these Terms will prejudice the statutory rights that you may have as a user of the Services. Some countries, states, provinces or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation of liability as stated in this section, so the below terms may not fully apply to you. Instead, in such jurisdictions, the exclusions and limitations below shall apply only to the extent permitted by the laws of such jurisdictions.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, LEGAL, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE OR COMPUTER SYSTEM, OR RESULTING LOSS OF DATA. IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE VEKE ENTITIES EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100) OR ANY AMOUNT YOU PAID VEKE IN THE PREVIOUS SIX MONTHS FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SECTION WILL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING THOSE BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE VEKE ENTITIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF ANY REMEDY SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
