You agree that You may not upload or otherwise transmit on or through the Service Content that is subject to any third-party rights unless any holder of such rights has given express authorization for distribution through the Services.
You agree that any Content You submit does not create an obligation for ImagineBC to provide You any payment or other remuneration.
ANY USE OF THE SERVICES IN VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WILL BE REGARDED AS AN INFRINGEMENT OF IMAGINEBC’S COPYRIGHT RIGHTS IN AND TO THE CONTENT
You may not, under any circumstances, modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, adapt, translate, transfer, buy, auction, rent, lease, loan or sell any Content, or other materials appearing in or generated by the Services, or any information obtained from the Services, whether provided by ImagineBC, third parties, or other users, without the prior express written consent of ImagineBC.

7. Rules of Conduct
By way of examples and not as limitations, You agree that You may not access the Services to:

(b) Use the Services in any manner other than as an individual user (i.e., not as a corporation or other entity).
(c) Remove, alter, conceal any copyright, trademark, patent or other proprietary rights notices contained in the Services and/or the Content.
8. Reputation Score
Each user will receive a score representing their trust-worthiness and reputation within the ImagineBC Community (the “REPUTATION Score”). The REPUTATION Score will be calculated using ImagineBC’s proprietary algorithm taking into consideration a variety of factors selected solely by ImagineBC. Your REPUTATION Score will change over time based on these factors, which may include information You provide and Your activity on the application. Your REPUTATION Score may also be impacted by changes to the algorithm and factors selected by ImagineBC. You understand that this algorithm and these factors are subject to change at ImagineBC’s sole discretion and ImagineBC is not liable to You for any impact resulting from Your REPUTATION Score.
As further set forth in ImagineBC’s Smart Contract Policy, You may receive money from time to time based on Your use of the Service or use by users that You invited to the Service. You may also deposit money into an account to be used within the Service. Funds received or deposited will be held in $USD within a bank account and will be associated with You. You will be able to check the balance of these funds and to transfer or withdraw these funds all from within the Service. The Service may also provide You the ability to connect Your Account with a separate bank account.
A certain minimum portion of Your Account funds balance must be held within Your Account, once that amount has been initially earned or deposited, to allow for certain functionality within the Service, including for micropayments under $0.01 USD (a “Digital Balance”). The Digital Balance minimum amount will initially be $5.00 USD, but this amount will be subject to change at ImagineBC discretion. While the Digital Balance may not be withdrawn while Your Account is active, it does belong to you and may be withdrawn upon termination of Your Account.
ImagineBC makes no claims regarding the taxability of any transactions you may make on the Platform. As between you and ImagineBC, you are solely responsible for the calculation and payment of any taxes (including income, sales, VAT, or other taxes) that may be owed to any national, state, or local government entity in connection with your use of the Platform.
Terminated Accounts and Abandoned Funds
If Your Account is terminated, ImagineBC will attempt to transfer any remaining balance of funds in Your Account (including the Digital Balance) to any corresponding bank account or to an account that You provide for remaining balance transfer as part of the Account termination process. If You do not have a corresponding bank account tied to Your Account and do not provide a bank account for transfer of available funds upon termination, then ImagineBC will attempt to contact You through the Service messaging functionality to complete the termination and funds transfer process. If You do not respond to such contact attempts and fail to provide an account for funds transfer after a significant duration of time (but not earlier than twelve (12) months following Account termination), then any funds or credits tied to Your Account may be deemed abandoned by You and retained by ImagineBC, subject to any applicable federal, state and provincial laws.
You acknowledge that ImagineBC will from time to time contact You through messages within the Service. ImagineBC will only have access to Your e-mail address for limited temporary use when You choose to provide such information as part of the onboarding identity verification and password reset processes. At all other times, ImagineBC will not retain access to Your e-mail address and therefore can only contact You via messaging functionality within the Service. If you wish to not receive any communication from ImagineBC You may terminate Your Account as described in Section 15 (Termination and Survivability).
The Services are controlled and operated by ImagineBC from its offices within the United States. ImagineBC makes no representation that Content and other materials available through the Services are appropriate or available for use in any other locations. Those who choose to access the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
Termination and Survivability
These Terms of Service are effective until terminated. ImagineBC may terminate these Terms of Service with or without notice to You by terminating Your Account as set forth in Section 3 (Use of Services). You may terminate these Terms of Service and Your Account by terminating Your Account within the application and/or by withdrawing all of Your available balance including any Digital Overflow Balance. If You choose to terminate Your account then You agree to not, and You will not be permitted to, create a new Account within twelve (12) months following termination.
The provisions of Sections 5 (Ownership of Content), 6 (Limitations), 10 (Terminated Accounts and Abandoned Funds), 15 (Termination and Survivability), 17 (Disclaimer of Warranty; Limitation of Liability), 18 (Indemnity), and 19 (Jurisdiction and Choice of Law) shall survive any termination of these Terms of Service.

ImagineBC is not responsible for Linked Services, for the business practices or privacy policies of the Linked Services, or for the collection, use or disclosure of any information by the Linked Services.
