Material Terms: As provided in greater detail in this EULA (and without limiting the express language of this EULA), you acknowledge the following:
1.1 Description. Funnychain is an online platform and social media website that allows users to upload and share user-generated content. It is a platform for entertainment content. As used in this EULA, “User” means any user of the Service.
1.2 Eligibility. IN THE UNITED STATES, THE SERVICE IS NOT FOR PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 13. FOR USERS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES, THE SERVICE IS NOT FOR PERSONS UNDER THE AGE FOR WHICH RULES APPLY ON A AGE-BASED BASIS FOR THE COLLECTION OF DATA (“RESTRICTED AGE”). IN ALL CASES, THE SERVICE IS NOT FOR ANY USERS PREVIOUSLY SUSPENDED OR REMOVED FROM THE SERVICE BY FUNNYCHAIN. IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE IN THE UNITED STATES OR THE RESTRICTED AGE IN THE TERRITORY WHERE YOU RESIDE, THEN YOU MUST NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER. Furthermore, by using the Service, you affirm that either you are at least 18 years of age or have been authorized to use the Service by your parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age and entered into this EULA on your behalf. If you are using the Service on behalf of an entity or organization, then you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity or organization to this EULA and you agree to be bound by this EULA on behalf of that entity or organization.
1.3 Changes. As the Service may undergo changes over time, we need the right to modify this EULA to match the changing functionalities of the Service. You therefore agree that Funnychain may change this EULA at any time without prior notice other than posting an updated EULA to the Funnychain website or within our App. Funnychain will endeavor to provide you with prior notice when there are any material changes, and may require that you subsequently take an affirmative action acknowledging agreement to the revised EULA before continuing to access the Service. You may read a current, effective copy of this EULA at any time at https://funnychain.co/terms/ . The revised EULA will become effective at the time of posting on the Service, and your use of the Service after such time will constitute your acceptance of the revised EULA. If any change to this EULA is not acceptable to you, then your sole remedy is to stop using the Service. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences of this Section 1.3, no revisions to this EULA will apply to any dispute between you and Funnychain that arose prior to the effective date of those revisions.
1.4 Consideration. Funnychain currently provides you with access to the Service for free. In return for enjoying this free access, you acknowledge and agree that Funnychain may generate revenues (including, by way of example and not limitation, through the sale of advertising and sponsorships, and the sublicensing of your User Content), increase goodwill or otherwise increase the value of Funnychain from your use of the Service, and you will have no right to share in any such revenues, goodwill or value whatsoever. Funnychain in its sole discretion may eventually charge you fees to access certain features on the Service. Funnychain will provide you with advance notice of any such changes before they take effect.

Nevertheless, all use of the Service and the related Mobile Services must be in accordance with this EULA.

11.1 General. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Funnychain in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Funnychain agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to this EULA or your use of the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to this EULA or your use of the Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this EULA. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS EULA, YOU AND FUNNYCHAIN ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
11.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 12.1 above, nothing in this EULA will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable national, federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
11.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Funnychain and the Terms and any dispute between the parties arising therefrom will be governed the laws of Mauritius, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Funnychain Parties from and against any claims, actions or demands, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from: (a) your breach of this EULA; (b) your access to, use or misuse of Funnychain Content or the Service; or (c) your User Content. Funnychain will provide notice to you of any such claim, suit or proceeding. Funnychain reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this Section if Funnychain believes that you are unwilling or incapable of defending Funnychain’s interests. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting Funnychain’s defense of such matter at your expense.
14.1 Miscellaneous. This EULA is governed by the internal substantive laws of Mauritius without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and Funnychain as a result of this EULA or use of the Service. If any provision of this EULA is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this EULA, which will remain in full force and effect. Failure of Funnychain to act on or enforce any provision of this EULA will not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this EULA. No waiver will be effective against Funnychain unless made in writing, and no such waiver will be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by Funnychain and you, this EULA constitutes the entire agreement between you and Funnychain with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein. The Section headings are provided merely for convenience and will not be given any legal import. This EULA will inure to the benefit of Funnychain’s successors and assigns. You may not assign this EULA or any of the rights or licenses granted hereunder, directly or indirectly, without the prior express written consent of Funnychain. Funnychain may assign this EULA, including all its rights hereunder, without restriction.

Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App. In the event of any failure of any App to conform to any applicable warranty, then you may notify Apple and Apple will refund the purchase price for the relevant App to you; and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App. Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that any App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
