Terms of Use

This agreement will govern all aspects of use by those seeking to be a part of RepItSocial
(“the Company”). It underscores pertinent information about the scope of the Company
so that users can make an informed choice. When a user creates or uses a RepItSocial
account, he or she agrees to be bound by the following conditions.

Scope of RepItSocial
At last, there is a forum for those of color. The mission of RepItSocial is: To be the BIPOC
(Black, Indigenous, People of Color) social media app through which the whole of the
BIPOC Diaspora is linked together in one central hub, built to inspire, empower,
support, and connect our people. RepItSocial will accomplish this mission through its
product offerings, features, applications, services, technologies, and software.

RepITSocial pledges to:

(1) Afford personalized opportunities to inspire, connect, share, and learn.
RepItSocial gives its user base a platform to affirm its BIPOC culture through
posting shared experiences as content contributors on the app in the form of
videos, photos, and blogs and encourages a melding of the various cultures as it
links users by their categories of interest – regardless of the flag they REP. Just as
each culture is a mix of peoples, colors, and ethnicities, so too is the platform as it
offers a unique hybrid mix that combines elements of Instagram, YouTube, and
Tik Tok to create a unique user experience.

(2) Foster an uplifting haven.
In many respects, RepItSocial casts a spirit of adventure. By design, the app
showcases the incredible talents and contributions of the BIPOC community.
Every post is an opportunity to celebrate inclusion and anything to the contrary,
will not be permitted. A zero-tolerance policy of infractions will be maintained at
all times. Constant vigilance will ensure the removal of objectionable content
and/or abusive users. Bad behavior will result in profile deletion for violating this
communal trust.

(3) Connect users with relevant products and services.
RepItSocial unabashedly tailors the user experience for maximum relevance.
Internal data, as well as input from third-party sources, are marshalled to target
ads, offers and other sponsored content which is germane to the user.

RepItSocial also isn’t responsible for services and features offered by other people or companies, even if user accesses them through our Service.
  • The responsibility for anything that happens on the Service (also called “liability”) is limited as much as the law will allow. If there is an issue with our Service, the Company can’t know what all the possible impacts might be. User agrees that RepItSocial won’t be responsible (“liable”) for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect,
    exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to the Terms, even if the Company acknowledges they are foreseeable. This includes when the Company deletes user content, information, or account. Aggregate liability arising out of or relating to the Terms of Use will not exceed the greater of $100 or the amount user has paid the Company in the past 12 months.
  • User agrees to defend (at Company request), indemnify and hold RepItSocial harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with the Terms of Use or user’s use of the Service.

Disputes.

  • Except as provided below, user and the Company agree that any cause of action, legal claim, or dispute between user and the Company arising out of or related to the Terms of Use or RepItSocial (“claim(s)”) must be resolved by ARBITRATION on an individual basis.
  • Class actions and class arbitrations are not permitted; user and the Company may bring a claim only on user’s own behalf and cannot seek relief that would affect other RepItSocial users.
  • If there is a final judicial determination that any particular claim (or a request for particular relief) cannot be arbitrated in accordance with this provision’s limitations, then only that claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other claims (or requests for relief) remain subject to this provision.
  • The American Arbitration Association will administer all arbitrations under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. User and the Company expressly waive a trial by jury.
  • The following claims don’t have to be arbitrated and may be brought in court: disputes related to intellectual property (like copyrights and trademarks), violations of the Platform Policy, or efforts to interfere with the Service or engage with the Service in unauthorized ways (e.g., automated ways). In addition, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a court to decide. This arbitration provision is
    governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
  • Any user can opt out of this agreement within 30 days of the date that the user agreed to the Terms of Use. To opt out, user must send his or her name, residence address, username, email address and phone number used for the RepItSocial account, and a clear statement that user wants to opt out of this arbitration agreement and terminate account. Correspondence must be sent: Rep Social, LLC. ATTN: RepItSocial, 5016 Rushlight Path, Columbia, MD

  • Any Notice of Dispute sent to the Company should be mailed to RepItSocial, LLC., ATTN: RepItSocial Arbitration Filing, 5016 Rushlight Path Columbia, MD 21044. Before the Company commences arbitration, it will send user a Notice of Dispute to the email address assigned to the RepItSocial account, or other appropriate means. If the Company is unable to resolve a dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Dispute is received, user or the Company may commence arbitration.
  • The Company will pay all arbitration filing fees, administration and hearing costs, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration it brings if provided with a Notice of Dispute within the allotted time. For all other claims, the costs and fees of arbitration shall be allocated in accordance with the arbitration provider’s rules, including rules regarding frivolous or improper claims.
  • For any claim that is not arbitrated, user agrees that it will be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Maryland or a state court located in Howard County. User agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim.
  • The laws of the State of Maryland, to the extent not preempted by or inconsistent with federal law, will govern the Terms of Use and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
