PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to us, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to us must be addressed to: Legal Counsel, social4money Inc., P.O. Box 1061, Norwalk, CT 06854 USA. If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written notice to an email address you have previously provided to us, if available. A notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. Arbitration forms can be downloaded from www.jamsadr.com. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after we receive notice that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000 or the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “JAMS Rules”), except to the extent that the JAMS Rules are inconsistent with this Agreement or the class action waiver described below. The arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the JAMS Rules or the mutual agreement of the parties and shall follow New York law in adjudicating the Dispute. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, subject to the limitations set forth herein. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the Dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a location determined by JAMS and not more than 100 miles from your home. If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the JAMS Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules. In the event that the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of submitted documents, the arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator, unless extended by the arbitrator. Except as expressly set forth herein, the award of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules.
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and we both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, or efforts to interfere with our service or engage with our service in unauthorized ways (for example automated ways. In the event a court or arbitrator having jurisdiction finds any portion of this Agreement unenforceable, that portion shall not be effective, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain effective. No waiver, express or implied, by either party of any breach of or default under this Agreement will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

social4money Dollar award rates for advertisement are calculated based on the number of users that view a particular advertisement specifically related to content that you create and post on your profile page and the ad rate for any particular advertisement. Advertising rates will vary based on among other items, the brand, product type, merchant, logistics provider or other participating partner, the amount of data you share, the geography in which an advertisement is viewed and the conversion rate from the advertisement. In addition, not all advertisements pay in all geographies and not all users who view an ad are viewed as a qualified viewer for that advertisement.
All social4money Dollar award rates are determined net of social4money platform costs and expenses. In addition, we also have the right to deduct reasonable fees, charges and other applicable deductions and costs. The amount of costs, expenses, fees, charges and other applicable deductions and costs may vary depending on the manner in which you elect to receive your social4money Dollar awards, the country, state or territory you live, applicable tax requirements, whether you are the primary creator or receiving social4money Dollar awards based on creators you refer to the social4money platform and other factors such as copyright or other costs related to your content.

The amount of any social4money Dollar award will be determined by us in our reasonable discretion, and in some cases may be based on estimates or assumptions which we determine to be fair and reasonable given each individual circumstance. In this regard, due to the payment terms from advertisers and affiliate commissions, a portion of your social4money Dollar awards may be held until the final settlement and determination of amounts received by us. We will review this periodically and adjust your social4money Dollar awards accordingly.

social4money COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
By participating on the social4money platform you are becoming a member of a community that depends on the goodwill and responsible behavior of each of our users. social4money is a place where users can share their creativity and experiences, connect with followers, friends and family, and participate in communities.
OUR COMMITMENT TO NEUTRALITY
Our Community Guidelines apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of content. We recognize that words can be interpreted or affect people differently and we try to account for these differences and apply our policies consistently and fairly. While we have a content moderation team working 24/7, we may not always detect content and behavior that violates these standards which means that enforcement may be limited or delayed in some instances. We rely heavily on our users to help alert us and to report content which may violate our terms and guidelines. Users can report potentially violating content. Users also have the ability to control their own experience by not accepting friend requests and blocking or unfollowing people and posts.
The consequences for violating our Community Guidelines vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person's history on the platform. We may warn someone for a first violation, but if multiple violations occur we may take additional action including restricting a user’s ability to post on social4money for a period of time or even disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm, a direct threat to public safety, or a violation of law.
We aim to prevent potential harm that may be related to content on social4money. We remove posts, comments and messages that we become aware of that incites or facilitates serious violence. We also remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety. We also try to consider the language and context in order to distinguish casual statements from content that constitutes a credible threat to public or personal safety. In determining whether a threat is credible, we may also consider additional information like a person's public visibility and the risks to their physical safety.
2. Dangerous Individuals and Organizations
In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we do not allow any organizations or individuals that proclaim a violent mission or are engaged in violence to have a presence on social4money. This includes organizations or individuals involved in the following: Terrorist activity; Organized hate; Human trafficking; Organized violence or criminal activity. We also remove content that expresses support or praise for groups, leaders, or individuals involved in these activities.
3. Organized Harm and Crime
In an effort to prevent and disrupt offline harm and copycat behavior, we prohibit people from facilitating, organizing, promoting, or admitting to certain criminal or harmful activities targeted at people, businesses, property or animals. We allow people to debate and advocate for the legality of criminal and harmful activities, as well as draw attention to harmful or criminal activity that they may witness or experience as long as they do not advocate for or coordinate harm.
We do not allow symbols that represent any of the above organizations or individuals to be shared on our platform without context that condemns or neutrally discusses the content. We do not allow content that praises any of the above organizations or individuals or any acts committed by them. We do not allow coordination of support for any of the above organizations or individuals or any acts committed by them. We do not allow content that praises, supports, or represents events that social4money designates as terrorist attacks, hate events, mass murders or attempted mass murders, serial murders, hate crimes and violating events.
4. Fraud and Deception
In an effort to prevent fraudulent activity that can harm people or businesses, we remove content that purposefully deceives, willfully misrepresents or otherwise defrauds or exploits others for money or property. This includes content that seeks to coordinate or promote these activities using our services. We also do not allow people to misrepresent themselves on social4money, use fake accounts, artificially boost the popularity of content, or engage in behaviors designed to enable other violations under our Community Guidelines. This policy is intended to protect the security of user accounts and our services, and to create a space where people can trust the people and communities they interact with.
5. Regulated Goods
To encourage safety and compliance with common legal restrictions, we prohibit attempts by individuals, manufacturers, and retailers to purchase, sell, or trade non-medical drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, and marijuana. We also prohibit the purchase, sale, gifting, exchange, and transfer of firearms, including firearm parts or ammunition, between private individuals on social4money. Some of these items are not regulated everywhere; however, because of the borderless nature of our community, we try to enforce our policies as consistently as possible. Firearm stores and online retailers may promote items available for sale off of our services as long as those retailers comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We allow discussions about sales of firearms and firearm parts in stores or by online retailers and advocating for changes to firearm regulation. In addition, we reserve the right to prohibit the purchase, sale, gifting, exchange, and transfer of any other regulated goods, such as endangered species and their parts.
6. Suicide and Self-Injury
While we want social4money to be a place where people can discuss and raise awareness about issues of importance and seek support from others, we don’t allow people to intentionally or unintentionally celebrate or promote suicide or self-injury, or identify, negatively target or makes fun of victims or survivors of suicide or self-injury. We define self-injury as the intentional and direct injuring of the body, including self-mutilation and eating disorders. We remove any content that encourages suicide or self-injury (this includes memes or illustrations as well as any self-injury content which is graphic). With respect to live streaming, we may leave the content up for a period of time so long as it is still talk and not action because experts believe that the longer someone is talking to a camera, the more opportunity there is for a friend or family member to call emergency services.
7. Child Exploitation, Abuse and Nudity
We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children/minor. A child/minor is defined as anyone less than 18 years of age. Prohibited content includes photos, videos, arranging real world sexual encounters, implied sexual acts or poses or any other sexually implicit content. Prohibited content also includes acting or failing to act, causing injury, death, emotional harm or other risk of serious harm to a child/minor. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and emotional abuse. When we become aware of apparent child exploitation, we report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in compliance with applicable law. We know that sometimes people share nude images of their own children with good intentions; however, depending on the image we may remove these images because of the potential for abuse or reuse by others.
Harassment happens in many different forms, from making threats to releasing personally identifiable information, to sending threatening messages, and making unwanted malicious contact. This kind of behavior is not acceptable on social4money. We distinguish between public figures and private individuals because we want to allow discussion, which often includes critical commentary of people in the news or who are public figures or have a large public audience. Context and intent matter, and we allow people to share and re-share posts if it is clear that something was shared in order to condemn or draw attention to bullying and harassment.
9. Human Exploitation
We remove content that facilitates, coordinates or promotes the exploitation of humans, including human trafficking. Human trafficking is the exploitation of humans in order to force them to engage in commercial sex, labor, or other activities against their will. We also do not allow content that facilitates, coordinates or promotes human smuggling as the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders.
Privacy and the protection of personal information is very important for social4money. We work hard to safeguard your personal identity and information and we encourage users not to post personal or confidential information about yourself or of others. We may remove content that shares, offers or solicits personally identifiable information or other private information that we believe could lead to physical or financial harm, including financial, residential, and medical information, as well as private information obtained from illegal sources. We recognize that the safety of our users extends to the security of their personal information and accounts and our services. We do not allow attempts to gather sensitive user information through the abuse of our platform and products.
11. Hate Speech
Hate speech is violent or dehumanizing speech, harmful stereotypes, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation. Hate speech creates an unsafe environment of intimidation and exclusion and in some cases may promote real-world violence. Accordingly, we do not allow hate speech on social4money. Hate speech includes attacks on people based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, serious disease or disability, age, immigration status or other discriminatory reasons. Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others or in an empowering way. We allow this type of content but expect users to clearly indicate their intent. Where the intention is unclear, we may remove the content.
12. Graphic Content
We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) when communicating news or current events, to help people raise awareness about issues or for educational purposes.
13. Nudity and Sexual Activity
We restrict the social4money of nudity or sexual activity. This includes uncovered images of female breasts, genitalia or anus, or content depicting sexual acts. We default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the social4money of nudity or sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes. We also restrict sexually explicit language because some audiences within our global community may be sensitive to this type of content and it may impede the ability for people to connect with their friends and the broader community. However, we understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons. Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding, and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.
We try to limit the spread of spam because we do not want to allow content that is designed to deceive, or that attempts to mislead users to increase viewership. This content creates a negative user experience, detracts from people's ability to engage authentically in online communities, and can threaten the security, stability, and usability of our services.
