UnlockMe is operated by UME.
These Terms govern your use of the Website, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Website whether part of UnlockMe. By registering with and using UnlockMe, you hereby accept and agree to be bound by and abide by these Terms. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Service, you must not access or use the Website.
Any information given on the Website including responses to “frequently answered questions” is not legally binding on UME is informative only and does not form part of the Terms.

All changes are effective immediately from the time UME posts them, and apply to all access to and use of the Website thereafter. By continuing to use UnlockMe, you agree to the Terms as modified or as they currently appear.

All transactions and interactions regarding User Content on UnlockMe are between Users. Except when UME acts as the agent of a Creator to receive payment for the Creator from a Fan (as further described in clause 1.8), at no point will UME be a party to or be responsible for any transaction or interaction between Users.
Where UME receives payment from a Fan to view User Content uploaded by a Creator or utilize Fan Interaction, UME receives such payment on behalf of the Creator and not the Fan.

From time to time, UME may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to Users.
How It Works
UnlockMe is a social media platform that lets you create a User profile, which in turn allows you to:
upload User Content to be viewed by other Users or Fan Interaction to be used by other Fans; and/or
pay to view another User’s User Content or use another User’s Fan Interaction.
To become a User you must register and create a User Account on UnlockMe. You must provide a valid email address, a username, and a password or a valid Twitter account. It is a condition of your use of the Website that all the information you provide on the Website is correct, current, and complete.
If you wish to view User Content you will need to provide details of a payment card to a Payment Provider. Your payment card information is stored by the Payment Provider.
If you elect to input two or more payment card details onto your User Account if payment of the Revenue from the first card is rejected because the payment card is no longer valid then the other payment card(s) will be used to collect full payment of the Revenue.
If you are a Creator and wish to receive payment of Commissions, you will need to include onto your User Account Payout Options and upload a valid form of ID. You may also need to submit additional legal information, such as a W-9 if you are resident in the United States of America. The exact information required will depend on your country of residence. Amounts due to you as a Creator from Fans will be paid to you by one of our Payment Providers in accordance with your Payout Options. With the exception of Creators wishing to receive payment by direct bank transfer from FIL, UME does not store any data disclosed by you when you register your Payout Options with the Payment Provider. Section 4 further describes the payment processes.
By registering on UnlockMe, you confirm that:
all User Account registration and profile information is truthful and accurate and any User Content you provide is your own and does not infringe the intellectual property rights or any other proprietorial rights of a third party;
if you previously had a User Account with UnlockMe, your old User Account was not terminated or suspended by UME for violation of the Terms of Service;
you register on UnlockMe for your own personal use and you will not sell, rent or transfer your User Account to any third party; and
UME reserve the right, at any time, to verify the information which you provide to UME as well as your compliance with the Terms. If UME is unable to verify this then UME reserve the right to suspend your account.
you will not use any third-party payment processors to accept payments for subscriptions, or any other service, via UnlockMe.
You are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur on your account and you are responsible for keeping your login details confidential and secure. You agree not to disclose these details to any other person or entity and immediately notify UME at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe someone has used or is using your account without your permission or if your account has been subject to any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you log out of your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to access, view or record your password or other personal information.
UME reserves the right to disable any user name, password, or another identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by FIL, at any time and at UME's sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in UME opinion, you have violated any provision of the Terms.
Subscriptions, Purchases, and Payment of Revenue
UME will procure that Payment Providers ensure that Creators will receive the Commission from UME with the difference between the Revenue and Commission being a management fee (which will include Incentive Payments) levied by UME and payments due to the Payment Providers. The management fee is for providing, maintaining and operating the Website. The Commission will be 87% of the Revenue generated by Fans paying to view User Content uploaded by you or use Fan Interaction.
In order to view User Content or utilize Fan Interaction on UnlockMe, you must first add a payment card to your account and then click the 'Subscribe' button on the relevant Creator’s profile. Your payment card details will be passed to a Payment Provider which will take payment from your payment card and pay it into UME's account.
Depending on your use of UnlockMe the Payment Provider will take monthly payments or will take payments for ad hoc purchases such as Fan Interaction. However, you may cancel the monthly payments at any time by turning off the 'Auto-Renew' switch located under the relevant Creator’s User Content profile or by contacting UME at email@example.com. If you cancel your monthly payments you will continue to be permitted to view the Creator's User Content until the end of the existing billing period, after which no further payments will be taken from your payment card and you will no longer be able to view the relevant Creator’s User Content.
UME receives the Revenue and holds the Commission on behalf of the relevant Creator, and not on your behalf as a Fan. Once UME has received payment from you as a Fan you have no further liability to the relevant Creator and the Creator shall allow you as a Fan to view the User Content or utilise Fan Interaction.
UME will take payment of the Revenue from the Fan and hold the Commission in UME's capacity as the agent for the Creator.. Any purchase of the right to view User Content or to use Fan Interaction which is subsequently subject to a Refund or Chargeback may result in the User’s account being immediately and permanently excluded from UnlockMe. The Refund or Chargeback amount may be removed from the earning Creator's income. The Creator may be alerted to the Fan Refund or Chargeback.
A Fan can prepay an amount to UME known as Wallet Credits which the Fan can later use to view User Content/access Fan Interaction on the terms contained within this agreement.
Wallet Credits are non-transferable; any unused Wallet Credits cannot be withdrawn.
Purchases on the Website cannot be divided; if a Fan attempts a purchase that is greater than the amount of remaining Wallet Credits, the Fan’s connected payment card will be charged the full amount.
Wallet Credits are subject to a maximum amount as determined by FIL, from time to time.
Should you wish to deactivate your UnlockMe membership then you may do so in your User Account section or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a Fan then any account deactivation will take place as soon as reasonably possible. You will no longer be charged or have access to User Content or Fan Interaction. Any subscriptions will be deleted and cannot be subsequently renewed.
If you are a Creator then you can only deactivate your membership when your last Fan Subscription has expired, and you have withdrawn any balance on your account.
If a User is both a Creator and a Fan then the account will be deactivated in two stages (Fan and then Creator).
You will receive an email confirmation upon the successful deletion of your account.
