End User License Agreement
This agreement is made between 12948231 Canada Inc., a Canadian federal corporation (“Us”, “We”, or “Our”) that is the operator of WhaleRoom.org and its associated ecosystem (“WhaleRoom”), and you, an individual person (“You” or “Your”).
Chat Rooms and Minimums
WhaleRoom permits You to join “rooms” to interact with other holders of the applicable cryptocurrency/tokens (“Digital Assets”), provided that You prove cryptographically that You possess at least the stated minimum quantity (e.g. using Metamask). If You choose to make use of a room with a minimum quantity of Digital Assets then You must be the owner of the corresponding account used to prove the specified quantity. Additionally, You must be of the age of majority in Your jurisdiction and at least 13 years old.
WhaleRoom does not require a paid membership to use it, but You may choose to do so in order to gain the benefit of additional features, status, etc. If You have purchased a membership with particular terms, rights, conditions, features, privileges, etc., then those terms shall apply to Your use of WhaleRoom, notwithstanding any term of this agreement. Extra features of WhaleRoom (e.g. third-party research and analysis tools) are only for Your use (and may not be redistributed or shared). Lifetime memberships are valid for the lifetime of Whaleroom, but We may choose to stop offering lifetime memberships at any time. We reserve the right to stop offering certain membership programs at any time.
Your use of WhaleRoom is contingent on following the rules for WhaleRoom:
- Be reasonable. Do not harass other users, threaten anyone, or act in a way that’s inconsistent with the WhaleRoom community that You are a part of.
- Be considerate. Rooms are only for members. Do not share screenshots or messages from rooms with non-users.
- Be respectful. Do not post content that is deliberately shocking or offensive such as sexually explicit materials, racist messages, or other disruptive content.
- Be kind. Be respectful of Our moderators and other staff who are trying to create a great experience for WhaleRoom users.
- Follow the law. Do not use WhaleRoom for illegal conduct or use it in a way that is illegal under the laws of Canada or under the laws of the place where You access WhaleRoom from.
- Do not advertise or promote your own products or services inside rooms unless you are an official room owner or moderator. You will be muted after one warning.
We are not responsible for user-generated content. Any content that You use in connection with WhaleRoom must be either Your own creation or be content for which You have the global right to make use of it in connection with WhaleRoom. All content that You post or create shall remain Your own, other than being licensed to Us for the purpose of displaying it within WhaleRoom. You agree that We may also redistribute Your user-generated content, transform it, store it, and use it for any other purpose that is common to chat systems or is technically required for the functioning of WhaleRoom, on a sublicensable, royalty-free, worldwide basis.
You are responsible for Your user-generated content. You agree to release Us from any liability regarding user-generated content and indemnify Us against any claims made in relation to user-generated content that You submit to WhaleRoom.
WhaleRoom is connected to a peer-to-peer participation system (“P2P System”) that involves staking and other complex blockchain functionality that You may make use of. If You choose to engage with the P2P System then You shall do so at Your own risk and with the understanding that We have no control over the P2P System as it is an autonomous smart contract-based system that is running on the Ethereum network. Any claims made by Us regarding the P2P System are summaries of the functionality and may not be relied upon because the actual rules of the system are encoded into the programmatic rules of the P2P System. We do not guarantee any of the functionality of the P2P System and do not receive any of the Digital Assets that You may use with the P2P System, all of which flows to other users of the P2P System.
Blockchain transactions are typically irreversible and You must take care to use the P2P System carefully to avoid accidentally losing Digital Assets. We strongly recommend that You test any transactions with small amounts of Digital Assets before using the P2P System to its full extent.
