OKStream.com Terms of Service

Welcome to OKStream. OKStream offers you the services, applications and software distributed by OKStream on the condition that you agree electronically to the following terms.

BY REGISTERING OR USING OKSTREAM, YOU SIGNIFY ELECTRONICALLY THAT YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS (THE “AGREEMENT”). YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE THAT YOU MAY HAVE WITH OKSTREAM WILL BE RESOLVED IN CALIFORNIA.

If you do not agree to these terms, do not use OKStream.


1. This Agreement


This Agreement governs your registration, access and use of the software, application code, upgrades, and services offered by or through OKStream, including without limitation: use and/or ownership of any chat rooms on OKStream, use of OKStream discussion boards, games, text, video, audio messaging applications, communications platforms, widgets, application programming interfaces or other products or services distributed by OKStream on behalf of its affiliates and third party licensors (collectively the “Service”). The term “you” means any person or entity ordering and/or using the Service, as well as any person or entity acting on behalf of such person or entity in relation to ordering and/or using the Service. The terms (a) “User(s)” means subscribers and users of the Service, including all persons or entities you make the Service available to through your site, community, network or system and (b) “User Application(s)” means any product developed by you that is based upon, incorporates, references or interacts with the Service, including without limitation, the Service’s Web sites, online services or application code.

2. About OKStream


The Service provides communication platforms and other applications. OKStream acts only as a forum and technical interface between and among Users and may offer a variety of applications and widgets from OKStream, its affiliates and selected third party licensors to help Users enhance their communities and Web sites. OKStream does not verify the qualifications of Users, nor does it evaluate, control or monitor in any ongoing manner exchanges between users. You understand and agree that you use OKStream at your own risk. You must use your own judgment in evaluating the qualifications of and statements made by Users. Any opinions expressed by a User are of those of the User alone, and are not to be attributed to OKStream. OKStream cannot and does not assume responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, safety, timeliness, legality or applicability of anything said or written by any User. There are risks of dealing with underage persons, or persons acting under false pretenses. Authentication on the Internet is difficult and, accordingly, OKStream cannot and does not confirm that each User is whom they claim to be or that they can deliver services or make payments. OKStream cannot control the information provided by Users. Users’ information might be offensive, harmful, untimely, inaccurate and/or deceptive and, accordingly, you agree to exercise caution, discretion and common sense when using the Service.

Information, advice, opinions or comments expressed by any User via the Service are not intended to substitute for informed professional advice. You acknowledge that OKStream does not offer or provide professional services, including without limitation, medical, legal or financial advising. You should not use the Service for emergency purposes or to seek or provide diagnosis or treatment of medical, psychiatric or psychological problems, or as a substitute for face-to-face professional consultation. If you have a medical or psychiatric emergency, call your physician or emergency service immediately. OKStream is not a referral service and OKStream does not endorse or recommend the use of any professional services. You must use your judgment to determine when it is necessary to consult with a provider who is local, licensed in your state or country, available in person, or otherwise possesses qualities required to properly diagnose or advise you, especially in areas of expertise such as medicine, law, accounting, psychological counseling, investment, tax or other financial advice, requiring government or regulatory licensing or certification, or for high risk activities.

You understand and agree that OKStream is partially supported by advertising. OKStream displays advertisements and promotions on or through the Service, including, its software applications and you agree that neither you nor any User shall obscure or obstruct with the placement, display or functionality of such advertisements. The manner, mode and extent of advertising by OKStream on the Service are subject to change at OKStream’s sole discretion.


3. Modifications to Agreement and to the Service


OKStream reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify or discontinue all or any aspects of the Service at any time and without notice to you.

OKStream reserves the right to add new products and offerings, and to change the terms of existing programs at any time, including paid programs. These modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the service, product offerings, price, or administration of the program. Not all products are available for all platforms, clients, or browsers. OKStream will announce any change in the price of the program on its website prior to any such change taking effect.

OKStream may modify this Agreement, its pricing, product offering, and any guidelines and policies posted on the Service at any time. You assume all responsibility in reviewing this Agreement, any notices that we may send you electronically, and the pricing and product information periodically at www.OKStream.com so that you will be apprised of any changes.

BY CONTINUING TO USE THE SERVICE AFTER OKSTREAM POST CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE SIGNIFYING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE NEW TERMS. YOU MUST DISCONTINUE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR USE OF THE SERVICES IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT.


4. Additional Terms


Certain offerings, features or areas on the Service, and certain subscription or fee-based services, may be subject to additional or separate terms, licenses, guidelines, policies and standards with OKStream or OKStream’s licensors.

20. Warranty Disclaimer


THE SERVICE AND ALL RELATED SITES, SERVICES OR GOODS OBTAINED THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITH NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, OKSTREAM, ITS PARENT, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, RESELLERS AND DISTRIBUTORS (THE “OKSTREAM GROUP”) DISCLAIM IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT THE SERVICE IS MERCHANTABLE, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, ACCURATE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NEED, OR NON-INFRINGING. THE OKStream GROUP DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING ANY SUPPORT SERVICES, WILL BE EFFECTIVE, RELIABLE, ACCURATE, MEET YOUR TASTES, OR MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. THE OKStream GROUP DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE (EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH THIRD-PARTY NETWORKS) AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY OKStream REPRESENTATIVES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. You may have additional consumer rights under your local laws that this contract cannot change. You use the Service at your own risk.


21. Limitation of Liability


YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH THE SERVICE OR OKStream IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR TO CANCEL ANY SUBSCRIPTION THAT YOU MAY HAVE WITH THE SERVICE. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE OKSTREAM GROUP’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SERVICE EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF SERVICE FEES THAT YOU PAID DURING THE LAST SIX MONTHS FOR THE SPECIFIC SERVICE AT ISSUE.

THE OKStream GROUP SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. THESE EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO ANY CLAIMS FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF THEY KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, THE OKSTREAM GROUP’S LIABILITY IN SUCH STATE OR JURISDICTION IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.


22. Indemnification


YOU AGREE TO DEFEND, HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY THE OKSTREAM GROUP, AND ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM AND AGAINST ANY LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO YOUR AND YOUR USERS’ USE OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICE THROUGH YOUR USER APPLICATIONS), INCLUDING ANY LIABILITY OR EXPENSE ARISING FROM ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL), SUITS, JUDGMENTS, LITIGATION COSTS AND ATTORNEY’S FEES, OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED.


23. Release and Waiver


To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release, and waive all claims against the OKStream Group and its employees, agents, and representatives from any and all liability for claims, damages (actual and consequential). Costs and expenses (including litigation costs and attorneys’ fees) of every kind and nature, arising out of or in any way connected with use of the Service. If you are a California resident, you waive your rights under California Civil Code 1542, which states “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to existing his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Residents of other states and nations similarly waive their rights under applicable and/or analogous laws, statutes, or regulations.


24. Injunctive Relief


You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, your breach or threatened breach of this Agreement shall cause us irreparable damage for which recovery of money damages would be inadequate and that OKStream, therefore, may obtain timely injunctive relief to protect its rights under this Agreement in addition to any and all other remedies available at law or in equity.


25. Third Party Services


If ordering merchandise and/or services from anyone other than OKStream, through any commercial service offered via an official OKStream partnership or affiliate, via OKStream, all transaction terms including but not limited to purchase terms, payment terms, warranties, guarantees, maintenance, and delivery, are solely between you and the seller of the merchandise or services. OKStream makes no warranties or representations whatsoever with regard to any goods or services provided by the seller of the merchandise or services and shall not be liable for the costs or damages arising, either directly or indirectly, from the products or services or from the actions or inactions of the Seller.

If you access OKStream applications on third party sites, you understand and agree that OKStream does not control or endorse such sites or services and that OKStream is not responsible or liable for any activities on those third party sites. Also, your use of OKStream applications offered on these third party sites are subject to the privacy policies that apply to such third party sites.


26. Links to Other Web Sites
