IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES. These Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your access to and use of any website, mobile application or other online or mobile product or service (collectively, the “Services”) of Swipehouse Inc. (“Swipehouse Inc.,” “we” or “us”), including Fanwave. If you are using the Services on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on such entity’s behalf and that such entity will be responsible for your violation of these Terms. Failure to use our Services in accordance with these Terms may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Services and may subject you to legal action by Swipehouse Inc. and/or severe civil and/or criminal penalties.

We reserve the right to make changes or modifications to these Terms, or any policy or guideline of our Services, at any time and in our sole discretion. If Swipehouse Inc. makes changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, including by revising the date at the top of these Terms. Your continued use of our Services following the posting of changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. Accordingly, you should frequently review these Terms and applicable policies and guidelines to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services.

Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information about how Swipehouse Inc. collects, uses and discloses information about our members. In addition, by accessing or using our Services, you agree to adhere to the Community Guidelines. Please Contact Us with any questions regarding these Terms at [email protected]

MOTIVATION
The whole reason we built swipehouse is to provide the space for individuals to chat with one another and with the people they’d like to meet. We’ve made our terms of use to be reasonable and straightforward. If there are questions, please contact us at [email protected] We hope that you have fun with the product and we look forward to building this product along with this community.

ELIGIBILITY, REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT
By registering to use our Services, you represent that you are at least 12 years old. By registering for an account, you further agree to (a) provide accurate, truthful, current and complete information; (b) maintain and promptly update your account information upon any changes; (c) maintain the security of your account by protecting your login code and restricting access to your account; (d) promptly notify Swipehouse Inc. if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to the Services; and (e) take responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access.

PAYMENT INFORMATION
2.1 We will make every effort to pay you in a time that is reasonable. We fulfill most of our payments though paypal. Delays in payments are usually from the brands we work with.

INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER MEMBERS
3.1 You Have Sole Responsibility When Interacting with Other Members. Our Services provide a platform for members to communicate with one another. We reserve the right to eject members of the community who do not correctly represent themselves or take unsavory actions. Swipehouse Inc. is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other members of our Services. We cannot be responsible for the interactions that you have with other Swipehouse Inc. members, so please use good judgment and keep safety in mind when you use our Services. We will reserve the right to take reasonable actions to provide a safe and fun environment on Swipehouse.

3.2 Identity Verification. We cannot and do not confirm each member’s identity. Although we provide tools intended to assist with identity verification, such as our address verification tool (as described in Section 3.3), you are solely responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others with whom you may interact through our Services. Swipehouse Inc. does not represent or warrant that our tools are sufficient to determine whether it is appropriate for you to interact with another member. Further, we do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Services. We do not investigate or verify any member’s reputation, conduct, morality, criminal background, or any information members may submit to the Services (other than the address-verification tool as described in Section 3.3). We encourage you to take precautions when interacting with other members and be judicious in who you choose to call.
3.3 Our Phone-Number-Verification Tool. Our phone number verification tool is intended merely to confirm the email address a member submits to us. Swipehouse does not verify the identity or good faith of any user.

3.4 Release. Because our Services are merely a platform, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law you release us (and our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which says: “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.”

MEMBER CONDUCT AND CONTENT
The Services include an interactive area where you or other members can create, post or store messages. You are solely responsible for your use of such interactive areas and agree that your use of these areas is at your own risk.

4.1 Member Content Restrictions. You are solely responsible for any Member Content that you submit, post or transmit via our Services.

Enforcement of these Terms, however, is solely in our discretion and the absence of enforcement in some instances does not waive of our right to enforce the Terms in other instances.

Social Media Tools
Swipehouse may offer social sharing features or other integrated tools which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features enables the sharing of certain information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides the social sharing feature.

These cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to information you voluntarily provide to us (e.g., an email address) in a hashed, non-human readable form.
