Friended

Terms of Service

FRIENDED TERMS OF USE
Welcome to Friended from Foundermark, Inc. (“Friended,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) operates the app Friended (the “App”) as well as a number of related services, including our mobile application (collectively, the “Services”). The following terms and conditions (the “Terms of Use”) form a binding agreement between you and us, whether or not you only register as a “Member” or subscribe to particular features of the App as a “Subscriber”, where "you" or “your” refers to the person accessing or using the App or Services.

The focus of our App and Service is to let You answer questions that are used to connect you with like-minded people to chat with.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING THE APP OR USING THE SERVICES YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY. YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SITE OR ACCEPT THE TERMS IF YOU ARE NOT AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS APP. If You do not agree to all of these terms, our lawyers are unwilling to let us provide You with the App or Services, and You have to cease access to the App and Services immediately. And, just so we get this out of the way early . . . Your use of the App or any other Friended software licensed through a third party distributor such as the Apple iTunes Store, Android Market or BlackBerry App World is also governed by the applicable current end user license agreement which is made available through the third party distributor with the understanding that if there is a conflict between any provision in these Terms of Use and the end user license agreement, the conflicting provision in these Terms of Use will prevail.

We may at our sole discretion change, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Use at any time on a going-forward basis. It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Use for changes prior to use of the App, and in any event your continued use of the App following the posting of changes to these Terms of Use constitutes your acceptance of any changes. 

1. USERS. You currently may become a member of Friended (“Member”) for free. Certain areas of the App or Services, including, but not limited to, chatting, posting or answering questions through the Services, may be restricted to Subscribers only. In the event you provide us with information on the App or Services, you agree to only provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information. If we believe or suspect that your information is not true, accurate, current or complete, we may deny or terminate your access to the App or Services (or any portion thereof). Members agree not to attempt to access Subscriber areas of the App. 

a. Top Users. We may list certain Members and/or award designations based on the volume and/or types of Content they provide on the App. Any such listing or designation is in our sole discretion, and we reserve the right to revoke such status or designation at any time.

2. MEMBERSHIP. To become a Member, you must log-in through Facebook which provides your “Account Credentials”, which you may not transfer to or share with any third parties. If someone accesses our App or Services using your Account Credentials, we will rely on those Account Credentials and will assume that it is really you or your representative who is accessing the App and Services. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account Credentials and all activities that occur under or in connection with your Account Credentials. Without limiting any rights which we may otherwise have, we reserve the right to take any and all action, as it deems necessary or reasonable, to ensure the security of the App and your Account Credentials, including without limitation terminating your access, changing your password, or requesting additional information to authorize activities related to your Account Credentials. You agree to be responsible for any act or omission of any users that access the App or Services under your Account Credentials that, if undertaken by you, would be deemed a violation of these Terms of Use. In no event and under no circumstances will Friended be held liable to you for any liabilities or damages resulting from or arising out of (i) any action or inaction of Friended under this provision, (ii) any compromise of the confidentiality of your Account Credentials, and (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of your Account Credentials. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your Account Credentials are being used without authorization.

3. SUBSCRIPTIONS. The app is free to download and use. We currently offer optional subscription packages. Prices are in U.S. dollars, may vary in countries other than the U.S. and are subject to change without notice.

You are not authorized to use any such Marks. Ownership of all such Marks and the goodwill associated therewith remains with us or those other entities.

5. RULES REGARDING CONTENT.

We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to review any Content, and to investigate and/or take appropriate action against you in our sole discretion if you violate or we suspect that you are violating this Section or any other provision of these Terms of Use or otherwise create liability for us or any other person. Such action may include removing or modifying your Content, terminating your Account, and/or reporting you to law enforcement authorities. We may not always be able to enforce these rules and you may be exposed through the App or Services to Content that violates our policies or is otherwise offensive. You access the App and Services at your own risk. We are merely acting as a passive conduit for such distribution and we take no responsibility for your exposure to Content on the App or through the Services whether it violates our content policies or not.  

All of the foregoing disclaimers apply to any Content posted on the Services by Members. In no event will we take any responsibility for any Content provided by a Member, and we make no warranty, representation, endorsement, or guarantee regarding, and accept no responsibility or liability for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of any Content provided by any Member or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein.

7. FEEDBACK. In the event that you provide us any ideas, thoughts, criticisms, suggested improvements or other feedback related to the App or the Services (collectively “Feedback”), you agree we may use the Feedback to modify our Services or create new Services and that you will not be due any compensation, including any royalty related to the product or service that incorporates your Feedback.

This is true whether you provide the Feedback on the App or through any other method of communication with us, unless we have entered into a separate agreement with you that provides otherwise.

8. SOCIAL NETWORKS. In using certain Services, you authorize us to act on your behalf to access and interact with social networking Apps such as Facebook and Twitter (any such App, a “SN App”) to retrieve information from, and/or submit information to, such SN Apps at your request. We will not collect your username and password, and we will instead store the unique authorization code (or a “token”) provided to us by the SN App to access it on your behalf. You can revoke our access to an SN App at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on that App. You should note that an SN App may change or amend its guidelines and our access to it at any time, and we cannot guarantee that our Services will always include a connection to such SN App.

9. MODIFICATIONS TO THE APP OR SERVICES. We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the App or Services with or without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the App and/or Services. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse will be to cease access to the App or Services. Continued access to the App or Services following notice of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and satisfaction with the App or Services as so modified. You agree that we, in our sole discretion, may immediately terminate your access to the App and Services at any time, for any reason, in our sole discretion. YOU AGREE THAT WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PARTY FOR ANY TERMINATION OF YOUR ACCESS TO THE APP OR SERVICES.

10. PRIVACY. We know that your privacy is important. For this reason, we have created a privacy policy that describes our collection, use and disclosure practices regarding any personal information that you provide to us. Though you may make a lot of information available on the App, the security of your personal information remains important to us. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take reasonable steps to help ensure the safety of your personal information. However, you understand and agree that such steps do not guarantee that the App and the Services are invulnerable to all security breaches or immune from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities. Friended reserves the right to cooperate with local, state, provincial and national authorities in investigations of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of your personal information. We may also report to other organizations about improper or unlawful user activities and this reporting may include disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals conducting such improper or unlawful activities. 

11. THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND OTHER WEBAPPS. Content from other Members, suppliers, advertisers, and other third parties may be made available to you through the App and/or the Services. Because we do not control such content, you agree that we are not responsible for any such content. We do not make any guarantees about the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of the information in such content, and we assume no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content made available by other users, advertisers, and other third parties or violation of any third party rights related to such content.

We provide these links for your convenience only and we do not control such apps. Our inclusion of links to such websites or apps does not imply any endorsement of the materials on such third party properties or any association with their operators. The App and Services may contain links to websites or apps that are operated by us but which operate under different terms of use. It is your responsibility to review the privacy policies and terms of use of any other apps you visit. YOU AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH ANY WEBAPPS, CONTENT, MATERIALS, OR PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTY, including other MEMBERS. 

12. RELEASE. To the extent permitted under applicable laws, you hereby release Friended from any liability related to: (a) any incorrect or inaccurate Content posted on the Services, whether caused by any user of the Services, any Member or any Verified Expert, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Services; (b) the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user of the Services, any Member or any Verified Expert; (c) any loss or damage caused by Content posted on the Services or transmitted by and to Members, or any interactions between users of the Apps, any Member or any Verified Expert, whether online or offline; and (d) any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, Apps user or Member communications. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

13. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. THIS APP AND SERVICES AND ALL CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE APP AND SERVIES ARE PROVIDED BY FRIENDED “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. FRIENDED MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THIS APP OR THE SERVICES, OR THE CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE APP AND SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND ACCURACY. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE APP AND SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. We make no warranty that the App, App or Services will meet your requirements, or that the App and/or Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free; nor do we make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of the App or Services, or that defects in the App or Services will be corrected. You understand and agree that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer or loss of data that results from the download of any material and/or Content. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us through the App, Services, or otherwise will create any warranty, representation or guarantee not expressly stated in these Terms of Use.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY WILLING TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE APP AND SERVICES IF YOU AGREE TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS OF OUR LIABILITY TO YOU AND TO THIRD PARTIES. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, LOST OPPORTUNITIES, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO, OR THE INABILITY TO USE OR TO ACCESS, THE APP OR THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, WARRANTY, STATUTE OR OTHERWISE.

WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND OTHER MEMBERS, NOR, IN ANY EVENT, WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY MEMBER.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. TO THE EXTENT THAT WE MAY NOT, AS A MATTER OF APPLICABLE LAW, DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR LIMIT LIABILITIES, THE SCOPE AND DURATION OF SUCH WARRANTY AND THE EXTENT OF OUR LIABILITY WILL BE THE MINIMUM PERMITTED UNDER SUCH APPLICABLE LAW. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WE OR OUR LICENSORS BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY DELAY OR FAILURE IN PERFORMANCE RESULTING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FROM ACTS OF NATURE, FORCES, OR CAUSES BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INTERNET FAILURES, COMPUTER EQUIPMENT FAILURES, TELECOMMUNICATION EQUIPMENT FAILURES, OTHER EQUIPMENT FAILURES, ELECTRICAL POWER FAILURES, STRIKES, LABOR DISPUTES, RIOTS, INSURRECTIONS, CIVIL DISTURBANCES, SHORTAGES OF LABOR OR MATERIALS, FIRES, FLOODS, STORMS, EXPLOSIONS, ACTS OF GOD, WAR, GOVERNMENTAL ACTIONS, ORDERS OF DOMESTIC OR FOREIGN COURTS OR TRIBUNALS, OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THIRD PARTIES. Some states do not allow exclusion of implied warranties, so these exclusions may not apply in individual cases. You may have additional rights that vary from state to state. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.

15. INDEMNIFICATION.

19. GENERAL TERMS. You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws.
