Terms of Service


Effective date: October 14th, 2017

Welcome to Upvote Coin (“Upvote Coin”) website located at upvotecoin.com (the “Site”). Please read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and our Privacy Policy (Upvote Coin Privacy Policy) carefully because they govern your use of our site, products, upvotecoin website, services and applications (the “Services”).

1. Agreement to Terms

By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.

2. Privacy Policy

Please refer to our Privacy Policy (Upvote Coin Privacy Policy) for information on how we collect, use and disclose information from our users. You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Services is subject to our Privacy Policy.

3. Changes to Terms or Services

We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore.

Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion. For example, we may remove a feature that users don’t use very often. We will notify you of significant changes to the Services that may affect you by sending you an email or posting on the Services.

4. Who May Use the Services

You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older and capable of forming a binding contract with Upvote Coin and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.

5. Registration

To use certain features of the Services you need to create an account (“Account”. As part of the Account registration process, you may be requested to provide information about yourself in order to use the Services. It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. We may use the information you provide in addition to information about you that is publicly available on the Internet—such as posts on any third-party social networking service, such as Facebook or Twitter (each, an “SNS Account”), that the privacy settings on and terms governing our access to such SNS Account permit us to access—in order to auto-generate parts of your Account profile. As noted below, you can terminate your Account at any time.

Certain features of the Services may permit or require you to link your Account with one or more SNS Accounts. If you do so, the Services will provide you with the functionality permitted by the settings on such SNS Account.

You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

Individuals who create an Account for the Services or not (which include you and third party Account holders) are collectively referred to as “Users” throughout these Terms.
