Terms of Service

February 8th, 2022

Welcome to Privee!

These Terms of Use (or "Terms") govern your use of Privee, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply, and provide information about the Privee Service (the "Service"), outlined below. When you create a Privee account or use Privee, you agree to these terms.

We agree to provide you with the Privee Service. The Service includes all of the Privee products, features, applications, services, technologies, and softwares that we provide. Our mission is to provide you with a better, healthier social media experience.

Who can use our Services

  • You must be at least 13 years old.
  • You must not be prohibited from receiving any aspect of our Service under applicable laws or engaging in payments-related Services if you are on an applicable denied party listing.
  • If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and have the authority to bind such entity to these Terms, in which case the words “you” and “your” as used in these Terms shall refer to such entity.
  • We must not have previously disabled your account for violation of law or any of our policies.

Account Responsibility

Users are solely responsible for protecting their accounts from access by others.

While it is acceptable for users to maintain multiple accounts, Privee can and may track multiple shared accounts from a single or multiple computers as one account in terms of TOS violations. If the TOS is violated severely enough to warrant the banning of one account, all known accounts shared between a single or multiple users who use those computers may also be banned for the actions of the violating account at Privee’s discretion.

Should a user be temporarily blocked from the site based on violations of the Terms, user will not have access to their account until the ban period ends. Attempts to bypass the account ban by creating new accounts may result in extensions of the ban and permanent removal from the platform. Permanent bans will result from users "hacking" their way onto the site using Proxy IP addresses.

Privacy Policy

Please review our Privacy Policy, which also governs your use of the Services, for information on how we collect, use, and share your information.

Content on our Services

You are responsible for your use of the Services and for any Content you provide, including compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others.

You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that might be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. All Content is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We do not take responsibility for such Content.

We reserve the right to remove Content that violates the User Agreement (Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, Community Guidelines, and other relevant platform policies) including, for example, copyright or trademark violations or other intellectual property misappropriation, impersonation, unlawful conduct, or harassment.

  • Your incorporated audio, photos and videos are considered part of the Content (subject to intellectual property rights)
  • However, we need certain legal permissions from you (known as a “license”) to provide the Service.

Using the Service

Privee is a subscription based service. In order to use it, you must pay a monthly fee unless otherwise noted (e.g., discounts and promotions offered by Privee). We reserve the right to change this monthly fee at our discretion. Likewise, you can cancel your payment and use of Privee at any time. Note, canceling your subscription does not result in deletion of your account. If you want to permanently delete your account, you may do so in the app.

Our Services may change from time to time, at our discretion. We may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services or any features within the Services to you or to users generally. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time. We can also remove any content or information you share on the Service if we believe that it violates these Terms of Use, our policies (including our Community Guidelines), or we are permitted or required to do so by law.

We can refuse to provide or stop providing all or part of the Service to you immediately to protect our community or services, or if you create risk or legal exposure for us, violate these Terms of Use or our policies (including our Community Guidelines), if you repeatedly infringe other people's intellectual property rights, or where we are permitted or required to do so by law. 

We can also terminate or change the Service, remove or block content or information shared on our Service, or stop providing all or part of the Service if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts on us. 

If you believe your account has been terminated in error, contact us at support@priveelabs.com with subject line “Accidental account termination”. 

If you delete or we disable your account, these Terms shall terminate as an agreement between you and us, but this section and the section below called "Our Agreement and What Happens if We Disagree" will still apply even after your account is terminated, disabled, or deleted.

The Services are Available “As-Is”

Your access to and use of the Services or any Content are at your own risk. You understand and agree that the Services are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The “Privee Entities” refers to Privee Labs Inc., its parents, affiliates, related companies, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors. Without limiting the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Privee Entities disclaim all warranties and conditions, whether express or implied, of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. The Privee Entities make no warranty or representation and disclaim all responsibility and liability for: (i) the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security or reliability of the Services or any Content; (ii) any harm to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or any Content; (iii) the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any Content and other communications maintained by the Services; and (iv) whether the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from the Privee Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty or representation not expressly made herein.

Privacy and Release of Information.  

Under normal circumstances, Privee will never release your provided information to any third party without your consent. However, in cases of Terms violations or illegal activities, we reserve the right to forward any and all known information about you and your accounts to your ISP (including libraries, schools, and places of employment), email service provider, your ISP account owner (if someone else is actually paying for it), and any parties whose copyright has clearly been infringed by your actions, or requests from law enforcement authorities.

Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Privee Entities shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, or any loss of profits or revenues, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any loss of data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from (i) your access to or use of or inability to access or use the services; (ii) any conduct or content of any third party on the services, including without limitation, any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of other users or third parties; (iii) any content obtained from the services; or (iv) unauthorized access, use or alteration of your transmissions or content. In no event shall the aggregate liability of the Privee Entities exceed the greater of one hundred U.S. dollars (U.S. $100.00) or the amount you paid Privee, if any, in the past six months for the services giving rise to the claim. The limitations of this subsection shall apply to any theory of liability, whether based on warranty, contract, statute, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, and whether or not the Privee Entities have been informed of the possibility of any such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

Links to Other Websites.  

The Site may contain links and pointers to other websites that are maintained by third parties.  Such links do not mean that we endorse these third-party sites or any materials they contain. Of course we do not control, and thus are not responsible for, the availability, accuracy, privacy policy, or currency of such third-party sites or any information, content, products or services accessible from such third-party sites.

Indemnity.  

You agree to indemnify and hold us, our officers, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents, service providers, suppliers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorney fees and court costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of Materials you submit, post or make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your violation of the Terms, your breach of any of the representations and warranties in these Terms, or your violation of any rights of another person or entity.

General

We may revise these Terms from time to time. The changes will not be retroactive, and the most current version of the Terms, which will always be at joinprivee.com/tos, will govern our relationship with you. We will try to notify you of material revisions, for example via a service notification or an email to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

The laws of the State of California, excluding its choice of law provisions, will govern these Terms and any dispute that arises between you and Privee. All disputes related to these Terms or the Services will be brought solely in the federal or state courts located in San Francisco County, California, United States, and you consent to personal jurisdiction and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.

If you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of California (excluding choice of law).

In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Privee’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms are an agreement between you and Privee Labs Inc. If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at support@priveelabs.com with subject line “Terms of Service”.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING, (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION), TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND PRIVEE THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION ‎17 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION.
