Terms of Service

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Uchi, LLC provides the following App and Website services (i.e. platform) to you subject to these Terms of Use hereforth known as Terms of Service (“TOS”), which may be updated periodically without notice. Failure to comply with these TOS may result in account revocation.

2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Uchi is a mobile app service that allows its registered users to communicate with other members of their Uchi Network using various proprietary and non-proprietary means (herein referred to as “Uchi”, “the Service” or “the Platform”). The Service can be updated through a mobile app store or a web browser. Once registered with Uchi, each user receives their own private area to post text, data, messages, information, music, sound, photography, graphics, and video in order to communicate with one or more members of their network (“the Content”). Content postings may be available for viewing by all or designated network members. This Content may reside on Uchi’s servers or on the servers of a third party, and is subject to the Uchi’s Privacy Policy.

3. ACCOUNT STRUCTURE

All accounts are created free of charge. The Service is provided with no requirement for payment information. Additional features, within the Service, are available which may require a fee. These are known as In-App Purchases. Uchi does not directly collect payment. Only third-party payment methods will be used to collect payment (e.g. Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, etc.).

All accounts are subject to applicable law including the Children’s Online Protection Privacy Act (COPPA) which restricts children under the age of 13 from registering. Uchi requires that a member be at least 13 years old to register for an account.

By registering, you hereby agree to these TOS and this account structure, and to Uchi’s right to change, modify, or otherwise discontinue any type of account and/or its respective services.

4. YOUR REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS

Account registration and verification is required in order to create an Uchi account. During registration, all users are required to provide accurate, complete and current information about themselves in all required fields. Should any of your own information change after submitting it to Uchi, you are hereby required to update that information as soon as possible. Should Uchi have reason to believe your personal information is not complete, current, or accurate, your account may be subject to suspension or termination.
