The VIP Ladder is comprised of various Web pages, Kali servers and VIP clubs operated by the VIP Ladder or its affiliates (collectively, the "VIP Ladder"). The VIP Ladder is offered to you on condition of your acceptance without modification of these terms, conditions, and notices contained herein. Your use of the VIP Ladder constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices. Your use of a particular VIP Ladder service may also be subject to additional terms outlined elsewhere in this agreement.

In the event that any of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein conflict with the other terms and guidelines contained within any particular VIP Ladder service, then these terms shall control.

MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE

Your continued use of the VIP Ladder constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.

MEMBER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, AND SECURITY
If a particular VIP Ladder service requires you to open an account, you must complete the registration process with current, complete and accurate information as prompted by the applicable registration form. You then will choose a user name and be assigned a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify the VIP Ladder immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. The VIP Ladder will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge. However, you could be held liable for losses incurred by the VIP Ladder or another party due to someone else using your account or password. You may not use anyone else's account at any time, without the permission of the account holder.

PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL USE LIMITATION

By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:

  5. Upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy of publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents to do the same.
  6. Upload files that contain viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer or property of another.
  7. Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Service specifically allows such messages.

Some of the above types of impermissible behavior are discussed in more detail below:

  • Offensive Communication
    The VIP Ladder is a community-oriented service composed of many different communities of people. If you use vulgar or abusive language online, even if masked by symbols or other characters, or engage in other impermissible behavior, you may either receive a warning, or be temporarily suspended from access to the VIP Ladder, or your access may be terminated immediately and you may be subject to civil liability and/or investigation and prosecution by law enforcement.
  • Harassment
    Harassment occurs when a VIP Ladder user targets another individual or entity to cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention, or other discomfort. The VIP Ladder does not condone harassment in any form and may suspend or terminate the access of any user who harasses others. You may have a disagreement with someone's point of view, but personal attacks, or attacks based on a person's race, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disablement or other such affiliation, are prohibited. If you have a disagreement with someone's point of view, address the subject, not the person. This provision shall not be construed to prohibit actions against fictional characters or other fictional entities in the context of normal game play.
  • Graphic Files
    The VIP Ladder prohibits the transfer or posting on the VIP Ladder of sexually explicit images or other content deemed offensive by the VIP Ladder.
  • Impersonation
    This may involve the portrayal of another person or entity, such as the impersonation of VIP Ladder staff. Users must avoid the portrayal of VIP Ladder staff or other persons in all forms of online communication, including, but not limited to, user names, user profiles, voice, text or graphic chat and message postings. Any impersonation with or without deceptive, harmful or defamatory intent is not prohibited.
  • Disruption
    This includes purposefully interfering with the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room. Room disruption may occur by repeatedly interrupting conversation between Users, by acting in such a way as to antagonize, harass or create hostility in a chat room, using a "bot" program during chat sessions that sends or replies automatically, or by making commercial postings, solicitations or advertisements.
  • Chain Letters and Pyramid Schemes
    Transmission of chain letters and pyramid schemes of any kind is not allowed on the VIP Ladder. This material places an unnecessary load on the VIP Ladder and is considered a nuisance by many users. Certain chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal. Letters or messages that offer a product or service based on the structure of a chain letter are a waste of resources and are not permitted on the VIP Ladder.
  • Advertising and Solicitation
    You may not use the VIP Ladder to send unsolicited advertising, promotional material, or other forms of solicitation to other Users. You may not use the VIP Ladder to collect or "harvest" User names without the express prior permission of those Users. The VIP Ladder reserves the right to block or filter mass email solicitations on or through the VIP Ladder.
  • Improper Use of Proprietary Materials
    Use of material which is subject to the rights of any person or entity without the express permission of the rights holder is prohibited and will result in the termination of your access and possible civil and/or criminal liability.
  • Spamming
    Your access may be in jeopardy if one or more of the following offenses are reported: a) Posting frequent and/or annoying messages in a chat session; b) Posting an off-topic message to a mailing list (as defined by the mailing list's rules); c) Sending unsolicited mail or messages to more than 25 people. If repeated spamming occurs, we reserve the right to terminate your access to the system or the mailing list in question, as appropriate.

The VIP Ladder has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, the VIP Ladder reserves the right to review materials posted to a Communication Service and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. The VIP Ladder reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.

The VIP Ladder reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as the VIP Ladder deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in the VIP Ladder's sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service. The VIP Ladder does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, the VIP Ladder specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service. Managers and hosts are not authorized VIP Ladder spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of the VIP Ladder.

Materials uploaded to a Communication Service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination, you are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.

If you witness any conduct that violates the VIP Ladder's usage guidelines, you may log the offensive behavior and contact support@vipladder.com. The VIP Ladder will handle information you provide in its sole discretion, and may decide to take no action.

MATERIALS PROVIDED TO THE VIP LADDER OR POSTED AT ANY VIP LADDER WEB SITE
