de.Social App Terms of Service



de.Social is a decentralized social content platform.

These Terms of Service are a contract between you and de.Social. You agree to these terms by installing or using the de.Social app on any device. If you don’t agree to these terms, don’t use the de.Social app.

Distribution

In order to offer the de.Social app on distribution platforms, such as third party app stores, we must include certain provisions required by those distribution platforms in these terms. The de.Social app is subject to such third party provisions and you agree to all provisions of these terms.

Usage

When created an account, the de.Social app generates a key pair for your account and wallet. Only you have access to your private keys and have full responsible for keeping them safe.

Privacy

We don’t monetize your private user data to advertisers or other third parties. This is exactly what we stand against.

de.Social will never try to access your account, information, or activity on the de.Social app without your consent.

Activity

de.Social is a decentralized service which means you’re fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account.

You’re entirely responsible for the information you submit through the de.Social app, including any harm resulting from that information, and de.Social shall not be liable for any acts or omissions by you.

de.Social will never have access to or control over your keys or wallet assets.

To use the de.Social app, you must be fully able and competent to agree to these terms and to use all services provided on the de.Social app. To use the de.Social app without parental permission, you must meet the minimum age requirements in your country of residence.

Content Moderation

de.Social generally won’t review the content posted by users within the de.Social app, and therefore, we can’t be responsible for any user’s content. Due to the nature of decentralization, de.Social is unable to remove any content from the blockchain. However, de.Social reserves the right to display or not display certain content that appears in the de.Social app and aims to provide the tools for user communities to voluntarily self-regulate their own content.

Please limit certain uses

You agree to use the de.Social app in a way that doesn’t harm or violate the rights of de.Social, de.Social app users, or others in any way.

You agree that you won’t, and you won’t assist others to: (i) gain or try to gain unauthorized access to the de.Social app or any de.Social system; (ii) disrupt the integrity or performance of the de.Social app or any de.Social system; (iii) generate accounts on the de.Social app through unauthorized means; (iv) install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses, or other harmful or destructive code or content; (v) use spam, data mining, or other unsolicited promotional methods, machine generated content, or unethical or unwanted commercial content; (vi) engage in phishing, spoofing, or similar fraudulent acts; (vii) spread misinformation or misleadingly impersonate another person or company; (viii) stalk, bully, harass or abuse another individual in any way; (ix) violate the privacy rights of others; or (x) copy, distribute, sell, license, create derivative works from, or in any other way exploit any copyrighted material, trademarks, or any intellectual property rights of others.

de.Social is decentralized

The de.Social app utilizes a peer-to-peer network that doesn’t rely on any centralized servers from which content can be blocked.

Our services may change

Some or all of the services on the de.Social app may change or be discontinued at any time, including features or support for certain devices and platforms. Any and all new services or features added to the de.Social app are also subject to these terms.

Sometimes we use third party providers

Certain services on the de.Social app may allow you to access, use, or interact with third party products and services, such as websites, blockchain wallet transactions, apps and DApps, support services, and group chat community spaces. When you use any third party service, their terms and conditions, including privacy policies, govern your use of those services, and de.Social shall not be liable for your use of or activities on or with any third party service.

Respect the de.Social brand

de.Social owns all copyrights, domains, trade dress (look and feel), design rights and themes, trademarks, logos, graphics, and other intellectual property rights associated with the de.Social app and the de.Social brand.

If you write articles or blogs, create websites, or talk about de.Social, make sure it’s clear you aren’t speaking for, on behalf of, or under endorsement by de.Social.

To request permission to use our copyrighted material or trademarks, such as logos, please contact info@de.social

We may change these terms

We may modify or replace any part of these terms. You’re responsible for checking our website periodically for any changes. Your continued use of the de.Social app following posted changes to these terms means that you accept those changes.

de.Social makes no warranties

Whenever used in these terms, “representatives” means de.Social affiliates, directors, officers, employees, partners, agents, core contributors, and any other representatives.

The de.Social app is provided on an “as is” basis, and you use any and all services on the de.Social app at your own discretion and risk.

de.Social disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. You understand and agree that de.Social doesn’t have control over, doesn’t warrant, and has no duty to take any action: (i) that any information provided by de.Social is complete, accurate, or useful; (ii) that the de.Social app and de.Social systems will be operational or free from failures, disruptions, errors, or delays, including without limitation processing virtual currency or tokens; (iii) regarding failure of hardware, software, or Internet connections; (iv) that the de.Social app and de.Social systems will be secure, safe, or free from viruses or other malicious code being introduced; (v) that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored in the de.Social app, such as your wallet address, private key, seed phrase, or personal data; (vi) regarding changes to or errors in the Ethereum network; (vii) regarding risks related to cryptographic and cryptoeconomic systems, virtual currencies, SNT, or other tokens, such as change in transaction costs; (viii) regarding legal or regulatory risk, inquiry, or action; (ix) regarding any custodial or fiduciary risk or responsibility, of which de.Social and its representatives have none; or (x) regarding third party content accessed through the de.Social app.

Risks you should know about

You represent and warrant that you understand the inherent risks associated with cryptographic and cryptoeconomic systems and have an understanding of the usage and intricacies of virtual currency and tokens (such as Ether (ETH)), smart contract based tokens (such as ERC 20), and blockchain-based systems. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) de.Social and its representa-tives aren’t responsible for the underlying protocols of open source blockchain based networks, which may be subject to sudden changes in operating rules (such as forks), (ii) such changes may materially affect the de.Social app, and (iii) de.Social may, in our sole discretion, decide not to support a forked network. de.Social and its representatives aren’t responsible whatsoever for any underlying software protocols, whether forked or not.

You acknowledge and understand that cryptographic and cryptoeconomic systems are an emerging technology with inherent risks. For example, advances in technology, such as cryptography or quantum computers, could result in the theft or loss of your tokens or wallet assets. While security is at the forefront of our priorities (which is why many functions on the de.Social app are privacy-mode by default) and de.Social intends to continuously update its security measures, de.Social can’t and doesn’t guarantee full security of the de.Social app, its underlying protocols, or your tokens or wallet assets. de.Social has no ongoing duty to alert you to potential security risks, but you can check our de.Social app security channel for updates when available.

de.Social liability is limited

In no event will de.Social or its representatives be liable under any contract, negligence, strict liability, or other legal or equitable theory for any lost profits, cost of procurement for substitute services, or any special, incidental, or consequential damages related to, arising from, or in any way connected with these terms, de.Social, or your use of any and all services on the de.Social app or de.Social systems, including without limitation use of $SOCIAL or other tokens, even if de.Social or its representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages. These disclaimers and limitations of liability will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

You indemnify de.Social against claims

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless de.Social and its representatives from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of the de.Social app or any de.Social system, including without limitation your violation of these terms.

If you decide to stop using the de.Social app

If, at any time, you no longer agree to these terms, you must stop using and uninstall the de.Social app from all your devices. Be aware that, even after uninstalling the de.Social app from all your devices, messages you sent may remain on the device of the recipient, blockchain transactions you made may remain recorded on the blockchain, and smart contracts you deployed to a blockchain may remain deployed.

Even after you stop using the de.Social app, all provisions of these terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including without limitation warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, dispute resolution, and governing law.
