Terms of Service
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AGREEMENT CAREFULLY
We are PRIVATE VR, Inc., a Delaware corporation. We welcome you to our online community. To participate in the community, we ask that you register with our Service so that we can continue to work together to create a safe and healthy adults-only platform.
The Content carried by our Services is not appropriate for minors and is not intended to be accessible to or by minors. Some of the Content carried by our Services may be of a mature or explicit nature. Accordingly, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to access our Services. By accessing our Services, you certify that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age. You agree to take all reasonable precautions necessary to ensure that your use of our Services is not directly or indirectly accessible or exposed to minors, or to adults who have not consented to access the Content carried by our Services. You are solely responsible for all activities conducted through your subscription account. You many not permit another individual to use your account, and you remain liable for any use of your account.
The Content carried by our Services originates primarily from third parties, which may include other Subscribers and/or webcam models over whom we exercise no control. In using our Services, you may be exposed to Content that you may deem objectionable and, in this respect, you use our Services at your own risk. In order to adhere to and respect local community standards, we may utilize mechanisms which filter out explicit sexual content in some geographic areas. In addition, there are commercially available programs and software, that can be used to limit access to Content that you deem objectionable.
If you experience Content that you find objectionable, inappropriate, or offensive, we want to hear about it so that we can take appropriate action.
1. Customer Care
A. All transactions that occur on our Services are final. We maintain a "Subscriber is Always Right" policy and want to hear from you if you are dissatisfied with our Services in any way. We do not provide refunds for transactions on or through our Services, i.e. we have a no refunds policy; however, we encourage you to contact us so that we may discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
B. You may cancel your subscription online at any time by emailing our customer care center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Your Privacy
3. Your Subscription Account
A. You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, and current account information. You further agree to only provide account information over which you have direct control and authorization, and not to provide account information belonging to any third party. Failure to provide accurate and authorized account information, or provision of false or unauthorized account information, shall constitute a breach of the TOS and may result in immediate termination of your subscription. You may also be subject to civil and criminal liability.
B. Upon registering as a Subscriber, you will choose a password and a screen name. You may not select or use a screen name of another actual person (unless it is also your actual name), a name in violation of a third party's Rights, or a screen name that we deem, in our sole discretion, offensive or otherwise inappropriate. We own all screen names utilized on our Services and license your screen name to you, via a non-exclusive, royalty-free, universe-wide license, in perpetuity. You may not use your screen name in violation of the TOS or in ways we deem inappropriate. We reserve the right to revoke any such screen name. Subscribers who have had their subscription with us terminated are not allowed to access our Services without our prior express written permission.
4. Charges and Billing Practices
A. All fees charged on or through our Services, with the exception of nominal payment account re-authorization charges as set forth below, will be prominently displayed prior to you incurring a charge. All fees that may be charged to access Content uploaded or made available by webcam models may be independently set by those webcam models. Per-minute prices are tabulated by the minute and may be rounded up or down to the whole minute. If you are granted future use credits by our Services for any reason, such credits are applicable toward charges independently set by webcam models or toward other, non-subscription based fees. For billing inquiries please contact us by emailing us at email@example.com, and mentioning “Billing Inquiry” in the subject line.
B. You agree to pay all amounts due for any fees or charges you incur while using our Services. Each time you incur a fee on our Services, you authorize a charge or debit to any payment method that you have provided us. You agree that we may, at our option, accumulate charges incurred during a billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle. This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your bank or card issuer. Further, you agree that we may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charges. If your subscription account is canceled or terminated, you agree to pay any outstanding balance(s) incurred. You must notify us of any perceived discrepancies within thirty (30) days of the time that the charges first appear on your account statement. Otherwise, they will be deemed acceptable by you for all purposes, including resolution of inquiries made by your financial institution. You are responsible for all charges and fees associated with access to Content or use of our Services, including, but not limited to, bank fees or surcharges as well as access fees imposed by other internet service providers.
C. From time to time, in order to validate the continued creditworthiness of our Subscribers and to protect the integrity of our payment processing systems, our Services may transmit re-authorization charges of up to $9.99 USD on payment methods that you have provided us. All such re-authorization transactions will be fully refunded to you by automatically deducting such amounts from subsequent fees incurred by you on our services, or upon your request via via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
D. You may elect to enter into recurring subscriptions on or through our Services, including without limitation VIP subscriptions, HD Pass subscriptions, and/or subscriptions to specific webcam model FanClub services. The billing associated with these subscriptions will ordinarily recur monthly (or at other designated intervals) on the anniversary of the date upon which you created your subscription. However, the exact billing date may vary in any given billing cycle due to weekends, holidays, the number of days in a given month, or other commercially reasonable factors.
