Your content

Our service includes tool(s) that enable the creation of audio, video or photographic content (the "Original Content"). The Original Content may then be derived into nonsensical data (the "Content") through cryptographic means, when this occurs a cryptographic key (the "Key") is generated.

You retain all ownership rights to the Original Content and the Content that you had to begin with. You accept that Rumuki is not responsible for the storage, or reproducability of the Original Content, and understand that the Content or Original Content may become lost or in-accessible due to events outside of your control.

You accept that the Key may need to be stored on Rumuki servers temporarily in order to facilitate this transfer. Rumuki will take all reasonable measures to ensure the safe transit of the Key.

At times the Content may need to be sent to another device. You accept that this will occur under circumstances and to a device that is either implicitly or explicitly approved by you. You accept that this means the content will be transferred locally via data exchange technologies such as bluetooth or WiFi.

Your safety

  2. Your content.
  3. Your breach of these Terms.

If you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a business or other entity, this indemnity obligation applies to that business or other entity.

Disclaimers

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, WHILE RUMUKI ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE A GOOD USER EXPERIENCE, WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT: (A) THE SERVICES WILL ALWAYS BE SECURE, ERROR-FREE, OR TIMELY; (B) THE SERVICES WILL ALWAYS FUNCTION WITHOUT DELAYS, DISRUPTIONS, OR IMPERFECTIONS; OR (C) THAT ANY RUMUKI CONTENT, USER CONTENT, OR INFORMATION YOU OBTAIN ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES WILL BE TIMELY OR ACCURATE.

RUMUKI TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR ANY CONTENT THAT YOU, ANOTHER USER, OR A THIRD PARTY CREATES, UPLOADS, POSTS, SENDS, RECEIVES, OR STORES ON OR THROUGH OUR SERVICES. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU MAY BE EXPOSED TO CONTENT THAT MIGHT BE OFFENSIVE, ILLEGAL, MISLEADING, OR OTHERWISE INAPPROPRIATE, NONE OF WHICH RUMUKI WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR.

Limitation of liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, RUMUKI AND OUR MANAGING MEMBERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM: (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (B) THE CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES ON THE SERVICES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE, OR ALTERATION OF YOUR CONTENT OR POSTS, EVEN IF RUMUKI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL RUMUKI’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICES EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 USD OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID RUMUKI, IF ANY, IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Arbitration

All claims and disputes arising out of, relating to, or in connection with the Terms or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved informally will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis.

The Arbitration Act 1996 of New Zealand governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of the arbitration, except to the extent that those rules conflict with these Terms.

The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator selected by the arbitration forum. Arbitration will be carried out in Auckland, New Zealand in the English language. Non-appearance-based arbitration may be carried out where the award sought is less than $10,000USD or its equivalent, and upon mutual consent between both parties.

You and Rumuki waive any constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury. You and Rumuki are instead electing to have all claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. If any litigation should arise between you and Rumuki over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, you and Rumuki waive all rights to a jury trial, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.

All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other customer or user. If however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court in which the governing law of these terms reside.

No part of the procedures will be open to the public or the media. All evidence discovered or submitted at the hearing is confidential and not to be discussed, except by written agreement of the parties, pursuant to court order, or unless required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no party will be prevented from submitting to a court of law any information needed to enforce this arbitration agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.

This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Rumuki,

Governing law and venue

These Terms are governed by the laws of New Zealand. And all disputes are to be settled in the applicable courts found in Auckland, New Zealand.

Severability

If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, then that provision will be severed from these Terms and not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Final terms

  1. These terms do not create or confer any third-party beneficiary rights.
  2. If we do not enforce a provision in these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver.
  3. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
  4. These terms make up the entire agreement between you and Rumuki, and supersede any prior arrangements.
