Terms of Service
Updating 25 January 2019
1. This Agreement
1.1 The Agreement.
Soul's Face allows you and the other members to give space to the extended community of artists and enthusiasts who conceive art not only as a figurative one, on-line and in the real world. The terms “Soul’s Face,” “we,” “us,” and “our” include Soul’s Face, Inc. and our affiliates. We use the terms “you” and “your” to mean any person using our Platform, and any organization or person using the Platform on an organization’s behalf. We use the word “Platform” to mean any website, application, or service offered by Soul’s Face, including content we offer and electronic communications we send, as well as Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram and any other channels created in the future. We provide our Platform to you subject to these Terms of Service. We use the terms “Terms of Service” and “Agreement” interchangeably to mean this document together with our Usage and Content Policies, Group Policies, Organizer and Leadership Standards, Member Restrictions, Payment Policies, and Trademark Usage Guidelines. Your use of the Platform signifies that you agree to this Agreement. If you are using the Platform for an organization, you agree to this Agreement on behalf of that organization, and represent you have authority to bind that organization to the terms contained in this Agreement. We use the word "organization" to mean any company, group or aggregation of people, with or without legal personality. If you do not or are unable to agree to this Agreement, do not use our Platform. These Terms of Service are an agreement between you and Soul’s Face and not between you and any other member.
1.2 Revisions to this Agreement.
We may modify this Agreement from time to time. When we do, we will provide notice to you by publishing the most current version and revising the date at the top of this page. If we make any material change to this Agreement, we will provide additional notice to you, such as by sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice on our Platform. By continuing to use the Platform after any changes come into effect, you agree to the revised Agreement.
2. Your Account and Membership
Our Platform is available to anyone who is at least 12 years old. You represent that you are at least 12. Additional eligibility requirements for a particular portion of our Platform may be set by any member who has the ability to moderate or manage that portion of our Platform. For example, the eligibility requirements for a Soul’s Face group or Soul’s Face event may be set by the organizers of that group.
2.2 Suspension of Your Account.
We may modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to the Platform if, in our sole discretion, we determine that you have violated this Agreement, that it is in the best interest of the Soul’s Face community, or to protect our brand or Platform. We also may remove accounts of members who are inactive for an extended period of time.
We may delete events deemed unsuitable for our discretion or post containing any form of advertising, always at our discretion.
2.3 Account Information and Security.
When you register, you provide us with some basic information, including an email address and a password. Keep your email address and other account information current and accurate. Also, you agree to maintain the security and confidentiality of your password (or else we may need to disable your account). You alone are responsible for anything that happens from your failure to maintain that security and confidentiality, such as by sharing your account credentials with others. If someone is using your password, notify us immediately.
3. Fees, Payments, and Offers
3.1 Fees Charged by Soul’s Face.
Use of some of the features on our Platform is free, and we charge fees for other features, in particular for the PRO subscription, valid for 12 months. We may in the future implement a new fee, or modify an existing fee, for certain current or future features of our Platform. If we implement a new or modified fee, we will give you advanced notice such as by posting changes on our Platform or sending you an email. You agree to pay those fees and any associated taxes for your continued use of the applicable service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and all transactions are in Euros. All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, state, local, or other taxes. Organizer subscriptions are non-transferable.
3.2 Fees Charged by Organizers.
Organizers may impose fees related to particular portions of the Platform, such as an event fee for a Soul’s Face event. The decision to charge fees and the amount of those fees is at the discretion of those organizers. Soul's Face will never refunds the fees paid to the organizers, for their events. Organizers may have their own refund policies, so long as they are consistent with and do not limit members’ ability to receive refunds under our Payment Policies. Payments made to organizers via the Platform are made through a third-party payment service provider. If a member pays a fee to an organizer via the Platform, the member authorizes the organizer (and the organizer’s applicable payment service provider) to charge the designated payment method for the total amount of the fees, including any applicable taxes and other charges. Among the applicable charges there is a portion due by right to Soul's Face. Moreover, it is possible to purchase packages of tickets for an event, which will limit the value of the fee due to Soul's Face, to be paid one-time purchase. All prices will be specified at the time of the transaction. You should use common sense in deciding whether to make a payment to any organizer. We cannot ensure that organizers will use payments as they promise or as you expect.
3.3 Payments to Soul’s Face.
You are responsible for paying your PRO subscription and any other applicable fees to Soul’s Face on time and through our approved payment methods. If we terminate, suspend, or remove your account in connection with violation of this Agreement, we are not obligated to refund any organizer subscription fees paid to Soul’s Face. You may only pay organizer fees to Soul’s Face using a valid payment method acceptable to us, as specified via the Platform. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the payment method you designate via the Platform. You authorize us and our designated third-party payment processors to charge your designated payment method for the total amount of any fees you owe to Soul’s Face, including any applicable taxes and other charges. If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable to us, your payment may be suspended or cancelled. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our payment processors to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.
3.4 Automatic Subscription Renewals.
Fees for PRO subscription may be billed on a one-time basis. The fees are payable in advance of the applicable period specified via the Platform with no refunds. We will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. By purchasing any feature or other aspect of our Platform for which we charge, you authorize us to keep your payment current by charging your credit card account (or any other means of payment used by you) the applicable fee. While you may cancel auto-renewal or cancel your subscription at any time, you won’t be issued a refund except in our sole discretion.
3.5 Third Party Payment Processors.
A member that uses the Platform to accept payments from other members, must comply with the terms and conditions of the third party provider of the applicable payment service used to receive the payment. Soul’s Face does not provide those payment services, is not a party to your agreement with the applicable third-party provider, and will not be liable or responsible for your use of those third-party payment services.
3.6 Third Party Transactions.
All the users of Soul’s Face may receive offers from third parties, such as discounts, sponsorships, or other benefits. Soul’s Face is not involved in any dealings or payments between you and third parties, and these Terms of Service do not govern such transactions.
4. Your Content and Privacy

Search engines can see public areas of the Platform. Your Content within these areas, such as the name and location that you provide during registration, and your membership in public Soul’s Face groups, may appear in search results.
4.2 Content License from You.
Soul’s Face does not claim ownership of your Content. However, to enable us to operate, improve, promote, and protect Soul’s Face and our Platform, and to ensure we do not violate any rights you may have in your Content, you hereby grant Soul’s Face a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license (including a waiver of any moral rights) to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, publish, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, and create derivative works of, your Content and to commercialize and exploit the copyright, trademark, publicity, and database rights you have in your Content; this on all our Youtube channels, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram and those eventually created in the future. This license doesn’t give us ownership of any of your Content. It simply gives us and members the right to use it on or related to the Platform. This license continues even if you close your account, because it’s necessary for us to operate the Platform. Even the other Soul's Face members can share on their channels your content that you publish, without purchasing the ownership.
