1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

a.      Description.  SHAREIO is a new social network content promotion service (the “Service”) allowing you to purchase, view, or listen to content as a member of the audience (“Audience”) posted to the Service by other Service users (“Creator”) whereby such User Content is hosted externally by a hosting or storage service, which is the External Services. In some roles, you are a member of the Audience and at other times, you are a Creator. A Creator “posts” content to the SHAREIO system by inputting into their account on the SHAREIO system a Universal Resource Locator (URL) that references a third party External Service where the Creator hosts their content and uploading to the SHAREIO Service a thumbnail image file and descriptive text, referred to as the Promotional Content to be used by the SHAREIO system to promote the User Content to the Audience in the manner specified by the Creator by means of the Creator’s selections input into the Service.

b.      Eligibility.  THE SHAREIO SERVICE IS NOT FOR PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 13 OR FOR ANY USERS PREVIOUSLY SUSPENDED OR REMOVED FROM THE SERVICE BY SHAREIO.  IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN YOU MUST NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.  Furthermore, by using the Service, you affirm that either you are at least 18 years of age or have been authorized to use the Service by your parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age and entered into this EULA on your behalf.  If you are using the Service on behalf of an entity or organization, then you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity or organization to this EULA and you agree to be bound by this EULA on behalf of that entity or organization.

c.      Changes.  As the Service is likely to undergo many changes over time, SHAREIO reserves the right to modify this EULA as it sees fit, including, without limitation, to match the changing functionalities of the Service.  You therefore agree that SHAREIO may change this EULA at any time without prior notice other than posting an updated EULA to the SHAREIO website or within its App. SHAREIO will endeavor to provide you with prior notice when there are any material changes, and may require that you subsequently take an affirmative action acknowledging agreement to the revised EULA before being permitted to access the Service.  You may read a current, effective copy of this EULA at any time at https://support.shareio.com/article/terms-of-use.  The revised EULA will become effective at the time of posting on the Service, and your continued use of the Service after such time will constitute your acceptance of the revised EULA.  If any change to this EULA is not acceptable to you, then your sole remedy is to stop using the Service.  Notwithstanding the preceding sentences of this Section 1.c, no revisions to this EULA will apply to any dispute between you and SHAREIO that arose prior to the effective date of those revisions.

d.      Consideration.  You as a Creator may post content to the SHAREIO service in order to sell access to other users in the Audience and thereby receive revenue for such content access. However, in the event you, as a Creator, post Content that is sold to another user in the role of the Audience, SHAREIO has the right to charge a first transaction fee. In addition, you may use the System to authorize a user to further promote your posted Content and such user may be paid for such promotion in a manner provided by the Service and selected by you, and in such an event, SHAREIO has the right to charge a second transaction fee. You acknowledge and agree that SHAREIO may generate service revenues (separate from your revenues for authorizing access to the content), increase goodwill or otherwise increase the value of SHAREIO from your use of the Service, and you will have no right to share in any such service revenues, goodwill or value whatsoever.  SHAREIO in its sole discretion may eventually charge you fees to access certain features and functions on the Service.  SHAREIO will provide you with advance notice of any such pricing changes before they take effect.

c. Methods of Payment.   Content purchases made through SHAREIO can only be made using an approved payment mechanism (e.g., debit and credit cards).  We use one or more third parties to process payments for orders, including Stripe (“Payment Processors”).  Payment Processors may require you to agree to their own terms and conditions and as a condition of using the Service you agree to comply with such agreements.  We are not liable for any problems or disputes that you may have with such Payment Processors. You authorize SHAREIO and our Payment Processors to charge you for all sums for the purchases that you make on the Service and pay you for any sales of access to Content or promotion thereof, as applicable.

d.      Taxes.  When you are a buyer of Content, you are solely responsible for the payment of any taxes and fees arising out of such transaction.  You agree to indemnify and hold SHAREIO harmless from any claims by any taxing authority arising out of your purchase of Content on or through the Service.


e.      Refunds and Exchanges.  ALL SALES OF CONTENT USING THE SERVICE ARE FINAL, and SHAREIO does not offer refunds for any purchased Content.  


f.      Cancellation of Payments and Purchases.  Payments and purchases may not be cancelled by you, except as required by law.  However, SHAREIO reserves the right to refuse or terminate any purchase or attempted purchase at any time in its sole discretion.  You understand and agree that if you authorize a payment transaction with your credit card, debit card or other payment method, but your charge is rejected for any reason, there may be a hold on your use of that transaction amount for several days.


g.      Disputed Charges.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY DISPUTES REGARDING ANY CHARGE TO YOUR ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARDS FOR PURCHASES USING THE SERVICE (BUT NOT ANY EXTERNAL SERVICES) IN WRITING TO SHAREIO WITHIN 60 DAYS OF SUCH CHARGE, OTHERWISE SUCH DISPUTE IS DEEMED WAIVED AND SUCH CHARGE WILL BE FINAL AND NOT SUBJECT TO CHALLENGE.
