The Site and App are together referred to herein as the "Services."

"Collective Content" means, collectively, Netizaar Content and Member Content.
"Content" means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, information or other materials.
“NetCoin(s)” means the virtual currency, which Members may use to pay for contents and services offered by the company; which may or may not be free of charge.
"Netizaar Content" means Content that Netizaar makes available through the Services, including any Content licensed from a third party, but excluding Member Content.

Certain areas of the Services and certain Collective Content (and your access to or use of certain Services or Collective Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept such additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Services or certain Collective Content, the terms and conditions for such specific area will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Services or that Collective Content, as applicable.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY DOWNLOADING THE APP, ACCESSING THE SITE, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION BY DOWNLOADING OR POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON THE SERVICES), YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY, THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED TO USE THE SERVICES (WHETHER ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR VIA THE APP). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES OR ANY COLLECTIVE CONTENT.
Netizaar reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Services, in whole or in part, or to modify these Terms, at any time.

If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to entirely cease using the Services and any and all Collective Content.
Using the Netizaar Services
You can use the Netizaar Services to make advice queries and seek professional or personal relationship analysis. Our Services exist to provide you with entertainment and amusement opportunities as well as provide access to the subjective wisdom owned and contributed by Netizaar users.
As a Member, you may invite friends to join Netizaar. You may do so by selecting friends from the list of your SNS friends, which is available to you via the Services and/or accessing your address book via your mobile device.
The Services may also include some or all of the following features for use by users: (i) rating and creating reviews of Members based on a variety of factors (each such review, a "Review") via the Review feature of the Services; (ii) sharing Reviews with Members and friends not yet on Netizaar via SMS; (iii) seeing their rankings and statistics; and (iv) updating and managing profiles; (v) earning NetCoins through some of the above activities on Netizaar for future spending on, but not limited to, Netizaar.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEMBER CONTENT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, RATINGS AND REVIEWS) ASSOCIATED WITH THE REVIEW FEATURE OF THE SERVICES IS BASED UPON INFORMATION PROVIDED BY MEMBERS AND IS NOT BASED ON THE VIEWS OR INPUT OF NETIZAAR AND/OR ITS EMPLOYEES.
If you or your friends from both of your phone contacts and SNS services who register for the Services, you agree and understand that (i) your Netizaar profile (which may include your name, SNS profile picture, Netizaar Review numerical and qualitative rating, and certain other Personal Information you submit via the Services or SNS) will be publicly viewable via the Services; and (ii) Members may rate and review you and share such Reviews as contemplated by the Services and subject to these Terms. The Services currently allow Members to review any friend who shown repeated connection from both their phone contacts and SNS services and may or may not have registered for the Services. Please note that if any Reviews were written about you (despite you may or may not having been registered for the Services), such Reviews will become publicly available via the Services without your registration, and all the provisions under these Terms concerning Reviews will apply upon registration.
You acknowledge that our Services are intended to provide fun and entertainment. If a Review about you or any other feature of the Services is causing you severe distress, we encourage you to contact a mental health professional or reach out to someone else you trust for support. You can also delete your Profile (and any Reviews) by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to access certain features of the Services and to post any Member Content on the Services, you must register to create an account ("Account") and become a Member.
You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your SNS, Account and mobile phone password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Netizaar of any unauthorized use of your Account.
Members may post Member Content only about friends who are within their own real-world communities and not about individuals who might bring discredit to or harm the reputation of the Netizaar community.
We reserve the right to deny access to the Services to anyone who does not meet our minimum security requirements via their SNS registration.
The Services are intended solely for persons who are 14 or older. Any access to or use of the Services by anyone under 14 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are 14 or older. You hereby commit to inform us immediately should you become aware that a person under 14 is either using the Services or has been the subject of a Review available for viewing on the Services.

License granted by Member
We may, in our sole discretion, permit Members to post, upload, publish, submit or transmit Member Content.
By making available any Member Content on or through the Services, you hereby grant to Netizaar a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, view, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast and otherwise exploit such Member Content (i) on, through or by means of the Services and (ii) for Netizaar's promotional and commercial purposes. In the event that Netizaar uses or otherwise exploits your Member Content for its promotional or commercial purposes, Netizaar will only use or exploit your Member Content in a manner that does not identify you individually (i.e. your name and identifying information will be removed from the applicable Member Content). For example, Netizaar may share Member Content contained in Reviews, such as comments and feedback from friends (with individual identifying information removed), with third parties or provide or license such Member Content to third parties in order to promote the Services. Netizaar does not claim any ownership rights in any Member Content, and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit any Member Content.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all Member Content that you make available on or through the Services. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all Member Content that you make available on or through the Services or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant the rights in such Member Content, as contemplated under these Terms; and (ii) neither the Member Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the Member Content or Netizaar's use of the Member Content (or any portion thereof) on, through or by means of the Services, will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You acknowledge that uploading or posting information about other individuals might encroach on the data protection rights of those individuals. Accordingly, Members who upload photographs or information about other individuals should do so only with the express consent from the individual who is the subject of the photograph or information.
You also acknowledge that we reserve the right in our sole discretion and without further notice to you, to monitor, censor, edit, remove and/or delete (in whole or in part), any and all Member Content that you post on the Services at any time and for any reason (including without limitation, any Member Content that violates the section below entitled "General Prohibitions").

The following applies to any App Store Sourced Application:
You acknowledge and agree that (i) this Agreement is concluded between you and Netizaar only, and not Apple, and (ii) Netizaar, not Apple, is solely responsible for the App Store Sourced Application and content thereof.

You and Netizaar acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the App Store Sourced Application or your possession and use of that App Store Sourced Application infringes that third party's intellectual property rights, as between Netizaar and Apple, Netizaar, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any action to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights will be the state and federal courts located in the State of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
You agree to comply fully with all U.S. and foreign export laws and regulations to ensure that neither the Services nor any technical data related thereto nor any direct product thereof is exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of, or used for any purposes prohibited by, such laws and regulations. By using the App Store Sourced Application, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Netizaar's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Netizaar may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications by Netizaar permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, ("Notices",) will be in writing and given by Netizaar (i) via email (in each case to the address that you provide); or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
You and Netizaar agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Netizaar are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Netizaar otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Netizaar otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Netizaar submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator's Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Netizaar will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Netizaar will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if Netizaar changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of Netizaar's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Netizaar in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Netizaar to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Netizaar. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
