Terms of use

Welcome to the user agreement (the "Agreement" or "Terms of Use") for jupyeah.com. This Agreement describes the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our services available under the domain and sub-domains of www.jupyeah.com (the “Site”) and all services offered by JupYeah Association ("JupYeah").

By using the Site in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you (the "user" or "you") agree to be bound by this Agreement, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. This Agreement applies to all users of the Site, including without limitation users who are givers, takers, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, do not use or access our services.

You must read, agree with and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and the Privacy Policy, which include those terms and conditions expressly set out below and those incorporated by reference, before you may become a member of the Site. We strongly recommend that, as you read this Agreement, you also access and read the information contained in the other pages referred to in this document, as they may contain further terms and conditions that apply to you as a jupyeah.com user.

  1. 1. JupYeah is a Venue

    1.1 JupYeah acts as a venue for users who comply with JupYeah’s policies to provide and take goods without monetary transactions involved. JupYeah is not directly involved in the transaction between givers and takers. As a result, JupYeah has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of givers to provide items or the ability of takers to receive items. JupYeah will pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users but cannot ensure that a taker or giver will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, JupYeah does not transfer legal ownership of items from the giver to the taker.

    1.2 JupYeah may use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the personal information provided by users when they register on the Site but cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. JupYeah encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

    1.3 You agree that JupYeah is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on JupYeah. You use the JupYeah service at your own risk.

    1.4 In the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release JupYeah (and our staff, subcontractors and all affiliated parties) from claims for your demands and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed.

    1.5 We do not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe exchange when using the Site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underaged persons or people acting under false pretense. By using this Site, you agree to accept such risks and jupyeah.com is not responsible for the acts or omissions of users on the Site.

    1.6 Jupyeah.com reserves the right to monitor and edit, modify or delete any materials which JupYeah in its sole discretion determines to violate this Agreement or to be in any other way offensive or contrary to any jupyeah.com policy, either written or unwritten. Jupyeah.com further reserves the right to use posted materials for its own purposes for marketing, communication, advertising, or any other purpose at the sole discretion of JupYeah. You agree not to use jupyeah.com for the posting of any material that is illegal, threatening, sexually explicit, pornographic, obscene, infringing on intellectual property rights, injurious to third parties, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable.

  2. 2. Membership Eligibility

    2.1 JupYeah's services are available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. JupYeah may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer access to or use of the Site to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Site is revoked in such jurisdictions. Individuals under the age of 18 must at all times use JupYeah's services only in conjunction with and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age. In this case, the adult is the user and is responsible for any and all activities.

    2.2 No individual should have more than one single account at any time. JupYeah has the right to limit an individual to one account when it deems it necessary to protect its users from fraud, or the risk of fraud.

    2.3. Accounts must be registered only by the individual seeking membership. Registration of accounts in a name other than the registrant's, fictitious or real, is expressly prohibited. Such use constitutes fraud and may give rise to criminal prosecution and substantial damages. JupYeah prosecutes fraud to the fullest extent of the law.

    2.4 You agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content. In addition, you must abide by JupYeah's policies as stated in the Agreement and on any pages published on this Site (if applicable to your activities on or use of the Site) as well as all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on the Site by JupYeah, each of which is incorporated herein by reference and each of which may be updated by JupYeah from time to time without notice to you.

    In addition, some services offered through the Site may be subject to additional terms and conditions promulgated by JupYeah from time to time; your use of such services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into this Agreement by this reference.

    2.5 Keep your password secure. You are fully responsible for all activity, liability and damage resulting from your failure to maintain password confidentiality. You agree to immediately notify JupYeah of any unauthorised use of your password or any breach of security. You also agree that JupYeah cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to keep your password secure. You agree not to provide your username and password information in combination to any other party other than JupYeah without JupYeah's express written permission.

    2.6 You must keep your account information up-to-date and accurate at all times, including a valid email address. To give and take items on JupYeah you must provide and maintain authentic personal information such as valid phone number and email address.

    2.7 You may not transfer or sell your JupYeah account and User ID to another party.

    2.8 JupYeah's services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended JupYeah members. JupYeah reserves the right, in JupYeah's sole discretion, to cancel unconfirmed or inactive accounts. JupYeah reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.

  3. 3. Services

    3.1 Joining JupYeah is free. Changes to the Terms of Use and JupYeah's services are effective after JupYeah provides you with at least fourteen (14) days' notice by posting the changes on the Site. However, JupYeah may choose to temporarily change the Terms of Use and JupYeah's services for promotional events (for example, pop-up swaps); such changes are effective when JupYeah posts the temporary promotional event on the Site. JupYeah may, at JupYeah's sole discretion, change some or all of JupYeah's services at any time.

    3.2 JupYeah may terminate a listing or your account at JupYeah’s sole discretion at any time. If you have a question or wish to dispute such termination, contact JupYeah.

Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the offering of that item.

Givers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable page policies. JupYeah reserves the right to request that a giver modify a page policy.

    4.4 All transactions are binding. The giver is obligated to ship or deliver in person the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the taker in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the taker fails to meet the terms of the giver's listing (such as preferred delivery method), or (b) the giver cannot authenticate the taker's identity.

  5. 5. Prohibited, Questionable and Infringing Items and Activities

    5.1 You are solely responsible for your conduct and activities on and regarding to JupYeah and any and all data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links (together, "Content") that you submit, post, and display on JupYeah.

    6.1 JupYeah does not claim ownership rights in your Content.

You agree to allow JupYeah to store or re-format your Content on JupYeah and display your Content on JupYeah in any way as JupYeah chooses. JupYeah will only use personal information in accordance with JupYeah's Privacy Policy.

    6.2 As part of a transaction, you may obtain personal information, including email address and shipping information, from another JupYeah user. Without obtaining prior permission from the other user, this personal information shall only be used for that transaction or for JupYeah-related communications. JupYeah has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any JupYeah user to your email or physical mail list. For more information, see JupYeah's Privacy Policy.

    6.3 By posting Content on JupYeah, it is possible for an outside website or a third party to re-post that Content. You agree to hold JupYeah harmless for any dispute concerning this use. If you choose to display your own JupYeah-hosted image on another website, the image must provide a link back to its listing page on JupYeah.

    6.4 JupYeah considers any unsolicited suggestions, ideas, proposals or other material submitted to it by users via the Site or otherwise (other than the Content and the tangible items transferred on the Site by users) (collectively, the "Material") to be non-confidential and non-proprietary, and JupYeah shall not be liable for the disclosure or use of such Material. If, at JupYeah's request, any member sends Material to improve the site (for example to website support), JupYeah will also consider that Material to be non-confidential and non-proprietary and JupYeah will not be liable for use or disclosure of the Material. Any communication by you to JupYeah is subject to this Agreement. You hereby grant and agree to grant JupYeah, under all of your rights in the Material, a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable right and license to incorporate, use, publish and exploit such Material for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, including but not limited to documentation, or any product or service, without compensation or accounting to you and without further recourse by you.

The prevailing party in any arbitration or other proceeding arising under this Agreement shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred in connection therewith. Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Hong Kong. Use of the Site is not authorised in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Agreement, including without limitation, this section. You and JupYeah agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Site (including, but not limited to, any services provided or made available therein) or this Agreement must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

    Should you have a dispute with one or more users, or an outside party, you release JupYeah (and JupYeah's staff, affiliates and contractors) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. JupYeah encourages users to report user-to-user disputes to the local law enforcement, postmaster general, or a certified mediation or arbitration entity, as applicable.

    9.3 JupYeah, for the benefit of users, may try to help users resolve disputes.
