Terms & Conditions

Last updated: 2/19/2018

Proceed with caution. Channels is new and we offer no guarantees whatsoever. Any investment in time or money you make in Channels could be lost at any time. We may choose to discontinue Channels at any time. Any balance and content we are holding for you could be lost.

Our guiding principle: We operate with a high ethical standard and we expect every community member to do the same. We will protect the integrity of the platform ruthlessly.

Channels is only for those at least 18 years of age, or those who are at least 13 years of age under the direct supervision of a parent or legal guardian.

By using Channels, you agree to do so at your own risk and agree not to hold Channels, Hivepoint, or any of its employees or investors liable for any direct or indirect loss you may incur or damage you may suffer.

We cannot be held responsible for harm resulting from content posted by others on Channels. We may or may not verify the identity of authors who post content, so consumers must be cautious about its origin.

You must use your real identity on Channels. This can be an individual or a bona fide organization.

You may not use any copyrighted material when posting on Channels unless you own that copyright or have permission to use it.

You may not use artificial means to drive traffic to your content or engage others to do this. That includes the use of bots, work automation services (such as Amazon Mechanical Turk, Clickworker, CrowdFlower, JobBoy, or any similar service), or other means that we deem inappropriate at our discretion.

You may not directly or indirectly offer rewards to others as a way to drive traffic to your content.

Clickbait is prohibited -- even in promoted cards. We may block cards and/or ban users who direct readers to certain sites containing malware or inappropriate content, or for the sole purpose of driving traffic to that site.

You may not promote your content (on Channels or elsewhere) in any misleading way.

You may not post any sexually explicit, violent, or other content that is in appropriate. We will determine what is appropriate at our sole discretion.

You may not post content whose sole purpose is to solicit money or donations from others.

You are solely responsible for your content.

Channels does not store your keys or password on our system. Therefore, if you lose these, we may not be able to help you retrieve them. You may optionally provide your email address when registering, in which case we may be able to assist you in recovering your account, but make no guarantees. If you provide your email address, your account may only be as secure as is your email account.

ChannelCoin is an intangible digital asset. The value of ChannelCoin tokens can be changed at any time at our discretion without advance warning.

We are not responsible for determining, collecting or paying any income or sales taxes. Depending on your jurisdiction, it is up to you to determine whether any such taxes are relevant and to report and pay them accordingly.

You may only use Channels if it is legal within your jurisdiction.

You acknowledge that Channels collects a share of the tokens paid by consumers to card authors. We reserve the right to change these fees (currently 10%) and to add other fees at any time without advance notice.

We provide no guarantees about the reliability of the platform and will not be held responsible for bugs and errors in its operation.

We will not share any information you provide us with any third party other than as part of this service itself (such as attaching the author's identity to cards).

We will do our best to protect information you share with us.

We reserve the right to change any aspect of Channels at any time without notice.

We have complete discretion to determine, without justification, when you are not complying with our terms of service and may take any action we deem appropriate including, but not limited to, blocking content, banning accounts, closing accounts, disabling payments, withholding payouts. We may do this with or without notice to you.
