WELCOME TO STREAMRIOT!
Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services are provided by StreamRiot (“SR”). At times SR may also be referred to as “we”, “us”, or “StreamRiot.com”. The person who is viewing or interacting with this site we’ll refer to as “you”, “hey you”, or where appropriate “noob” (only when you’re a 404 brain error).
This Terms of Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is our contract between you and us. It tells you what you can and can’t do and what we can and can’t do with you. By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms so please read them carefully.
StreamRiot.com is a custom developed bad ass multi-livestream media player and website. Our “Riot Player” is method of displaying multiple livestreams on a single media player. We make the greenbacks by: (1) partnerships developed with professional e-Sports teams and organizations to embed our Riot Player (2) telling you about people that have paid us to talk about them; and (3) selling advertising space. Unless you’re the tax man we don’t have to work for free. So if you you’re buying from us, you’ll pay for what you order when you order it. And because we’re the Batman to your Robin, it’s up to us whether we’ll run your ad or not, and like a terrible video game, we may eject you.
ELIGIBILITY – 100% HUMANS ALLOWED
In order for our relationship to become totally legit, you can’t be from Mars, you can’t be a goldfish or under the age of 18. Basically, this website and our Services are for big kid adult humans only. For real little buddy, if you’re not a big boy or big girl yet, keep it moving and when you’re eighteen you can come back. Otherwise, as part of this fabulous Agreement, you hereby attest, pinky square and spit shake that you’re at least 18 and older.
If you ever got suspended or kicked out of the club by us, then you’re not eligible either. We suppose you can send an email to us why you want us back in your life but we’re not promising we will.
JACKED-UP THINGS YOU CAN’T DO
We like you and we want you to like us too. If you follow the rules we can be BFF’s for life. The most obvious, don’t misuse our Services. Seriously. If you’ve misplaced your awesome-sauce and violate our policies or if we suspect misconduct, we’ll suspend or stop providing our Services to you.
Our Services display some content that we don’t own or produce. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may check it out to make sure it’s legal and doesn’t violate our policies, and we might remove or refuse to display content that would make us look like death warmed over, or potentially endanger our company and brand. This does not necessarily mean that we review content, so don’t assume that we do.
The internet is full of nutty things and since we can’t physically hire a body guard for StreamRiot.com, we expect the following:
• Don’t hijack our content, replicate codes and try to embed anything from StreamRiot.com;
• Don’t Spam, or use this site to sell your treasures without our permission. This isn’t the classifieds;
• Don’t give us viruses or other virtual diseases and don’t try and hack your way into our computers or servers;
• Don’t post hateful and useless comments on our blog or anywhere else on the website;
• Don’t be a machine or robot. Meaning, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interfaces and instructions we’ve
• Don’t discriminate, defraud, impose hate, or act like a jackass. Really…don’t even try cause we’ll ban you;
• Don’t post or upload things that you’re not supposed to or don’t have permission for;
• Don’t remove, obscure, or attempt to block any legal notices or pretty much anything displayed on our site or intended as part of our Service;
• Don’t be a tool and use our branding or logos without permission;
• Don’t do other things that we don’t like, which is up to us.
As long as you follow the rules we’ll be cool. But if you break rules, we’ll kick you out or haul your ass to court. Oh, and if for any reason we neglect to enforce against one person it doesn’t mean we’ve granted any kind of waiver to enforce our rights at any time for the same or different offenses.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY – WE OWN THIS ISH SON
Don’t jack our stuff. By stuff, we mean our phenomenally kick-ass content including the Riot Player, Manager, pictures, videos, sounds, logos and branding material (we also refer to this stuff as our “Content”). We worked really hard to develop all this stuff and we’re pretty sure it’s covered in our sweat and tears. You can’t just come to our virtual house (StreamRiot.com) and copy, distribute, display, disseminate or reproduce ANY information on our website or the site itself without permission.
Our Content is protected by every freaking law you can think of. Straight up. This includes US Copyright Law 17 U.S.C. Section 107. Bottom-line; don’t steal our stuff, content or ish. It’s the law.
If you’re giving us content for our site, you’re giving your best Scout’s Honor swear that it’s yours and/or you have the rights and permissions to use it in the way you’re using it. If you jack someone else’s “stuff” and try and pass it off to us like “oh hey bro, no worries, it’s totally cool if you use this” then you’re going to pay for anything and everything bad that happens to us, our employees, our advertisers, partners, the company’s miniaturized winged polar bear (we roll that tough around here), or our agents.
“StreamRiot,” “Riot Player” and “Riot Manager” are trademarks used by us, StreamRiot, to uniquely identify our badassical business. You agree not to use our trademarked phrases, our trade dress, or copy the look and feel of our website or its design, without our prior written consent. You agree that this paragraph extends beyond the governing law on intellectual property law, and includes prohibitions on any competition that violates the provisions of this paragraph, or any violation of unwritten Shyriiwook convention.
REVOCATION OF CONSENT
Sacrificed a goat to us you have? Decided we graciously let you use our copyright and/or trademark, now that you have. Yessssss. So our Yoda impression may not be awesome but you know what is? If we have given prior written consent for your use of our protected material, we could revoke that consent at any time. Brand protection bro.
At our request, we may require that you take immediate action to remove from website(s), display(s), circulation, publication(s), or other dissemination, any of the marks, copyrighted content, or other materials that we previously consented for your use.
So don’t use the terms “StreamRiot,” “Riot Player” or “Riot Manager” to sell exploding plush Valentine bears to minors or your ex. It would look really bad for us and our lawyers might go apeshit. It would force us to withdraw our consent for your use of our intellectual property.
YOU DON’T LIKE IT? DON’T BLAME US
Hang out with us, and you’ll be exposed to some rad, live produced Content from a variety of sources. We’re not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, or intellectual property rights no matter how beast or boring it is. And because responsibility is tough, we’re also not responsible for any Content you may find inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
SR doesn’t endorse any Content, opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed and we officially remove ourselves from any liability.
YOUR STREAMRIOT ACCOUNT AND INFORMATION
THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS & SHARING
You can take a short cut when signing up or signing in to our Services through Facebook or Twitter. If you choose this method, we might use some of that information to provide help with your account. You’re also giving us the thumbs up, a-ok, yes, go for it, acknowledgement to possibly publish information regarding your use of SR to that account. We’re not a-holes so we won’t actually post at-will on your behalf. That would be crazy. You can however, share and post your activities from StreamRiot to your social media yourself. Feel relieved.
Our site may have links to third party websites that we have no control over, such as YouTube, Twitch Facebook, and Twitter. We have no responsibility over this content which means you have to take up any issues you have with those sites with their owners. Leave us out of it.
DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (DMCA)
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
SR is registered in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). And like calling the pest control agents, our liability is completely exterminated. Meaning, it’s pointless to try and take us to court if some random outsider uses StreamRiot.com to violate your copyright.
If you do feel like your copyright has been violated let us know by sending us a message to: takedown@StreamRiot.com. Send a detailed description and not some lame phrase like “I like dolphins.” That’s cool bro, but we don’t read minds here so include the following:
• Your full name
• The name of the party (person, company, website etc) whose copyright has been violated, if different from your name
• The name and description of the work that is being infringed
• The URL from our website that displays the violation
Then copy and paste this fantastic sentence into your message:
I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. The information in this notification is accurate and I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You have to sign the notice, and if you send it by e-mail, an electronic signature works just fine.
SR may allow you to post content. If we do, you agree to only post in accordance to this Agreement and to remain responsible for anything that you post. Did you think we were going to hold your hand and babysit you and your content?
By posting your content you’re giving us the right to use that content how we please. Seriously, we can take your content and chop the crap out of it, put it on a giant billboard in Nevada, and even make money off of it without giving you a cent. We’ll send you a thank you card though and you can’t be a taker-backer either. That means this “license” lives on forever and everr and everrr and everrrr… it’s irrevocable. But wait, there’s more! Pat, tell em what they’ve won! Responsibility. For us. If some ish goes down, and anything bad happens because of something you submit, you agree to pay us, cover our legal bills and any other bills (like filling up our gas so we can get to court) that may result because of your bad behavior. After all that, we’re going to revoke your account(s), turn our backs and hope something epic plays out like you crying out “Nooo…Don’t leave me…!” as we walk away in slow motion with an army of dudes and painted six packs.
Milk makes you grow big and strong and we have a tall glass to drink from. We’re constantly changing and improving our Services which we reserve the right to do so whenever we damn well please. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we could decide to just hibernate or jump ship.
You are free and clear to stop using our Services; although we’ll be sorry to see you. In some circumstances we might choose to stop providing Services altogether.
If we do decide to break up with you by discontinuing our Service, we’ll give you reasonable advance notice pack up your information and get out of our house.
U MAD BRO? GONNA LAWYER UP?
We have a whole team of lawyers and they’re combat ready for anything. This includes business disputes between us and you, to a full-scale hostile alien invasion while the movie, The Planet of the Apes materializes before all of humanity. Shit just got real. Luckily we’re incredibly well adjusted people so we prefer to resolve things like proper individuals. If a problem is troubling you, you agree to first come to us and while we drink tea, you’ll tell us about this problem of yours. There’s a good chance we may talk about this problem for long time, and if neither side is happy with the result then we can get more gritty and rock-em sock-em in Court. The Court must be in the Golden State of California, and will be decided based on California law. Any law that applies or controls this contract is based on California law. YEA DOG, you just got hometurfed bro. We need a common location to resolve disputes and you’re agreeing to our home-field advantage being California. Oh and loser pays the winners attorneys’ fees and costs, and any other expenses incurred to resolve the fight, dispute or lawsuit. Womp Womp.
SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD….AGREEMENT
Sometimes, people mutually agree to stuff that courts just won’t uphold. That shouldn’t affect the intent of our contract, though, so you agree that if a judge declares a portion of these Terms of Service of no effect, the rest of the Terms of Service will stay in effect.
INDEMNITY WE LOVE
You agree to indemnify and hold StreamRiot innocent, harmless, and dear to your heart as if we were your own kin, for any claims by you or any third party which may arise from or relate to this Agreement or the provision of our Service to you, including any damages from shark attacks, panda bears and those caused by your use of our website or acceptance of the offers contained on it. You also agree to your new duty as Captain Optical by defending us against glitter getting into our eyes and against such claims, and we may require you to pay for an attorney(s) of our choice in such cases. You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements.
In the event of a claim such as one described in the above paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.
You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we might otherwise be when the result of event(s) is/are beyond our control. What does that mean? Well a few unlimited examples include zombie attacks, acts of God, riots, labor issues, rabid moose invasions, hordes of psycho cats, mail carrier issues, re-makes of the ALF show, communication fails, infrastructure collapse or any other event(s) beyond our control.
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, we’re allowed to point fingers at each other because neither of us realized the error but made an agreement anyways. In that case, we forgive you for your dummy ways. In such cases, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
Should two or more provisions of this Agreement be found to conflict with each other’s operation, StreamRiot shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT ME??
WE’RE SORRY ABOUT THIS CAPS-LOCK BUSINESS. WE HAVE TO DO IT BECAUSE SOME OLD DUDE SAID WE HAD TO. WE PROMISE WE’RE NOT YELLING AT YOU. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING US FROM ANY LIABILITY THAT WE MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO YOU IN RELATION TO OR ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES, FOR REASONS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FAILURE OF OUR SERVICE, NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER TORT. TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW RESTRICTS THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY, YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY LIABLE TO YOU FOR THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF DAMAGES THAT THE LAW RESTRICTS OUR LIABILITY TO, IF SUCH A MINIMUM EXISTS.
EVEN IF SOMETHING TERRIBLE AND CATASTROPHIC HAPPENS LIKE THE MAYAN’S MISTAKING 2013 FOR 2033 AND THE WORLD COMES TO AN END OR ALIENS DESTROY EARTH INBETWEEN THAT, YOU CAN’T SUE US OR ANYONE THAT’S CONNECTED WITH US. BECAUSE WE’RE IN CALIFORNIA, AND YOU MIGHT BE IN CALIFORNIA TOO, WE HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THIS SWEET ASS LAW THAT SAYS IF YOU GIVE UP YOUR “GENERAL” RIGHTS TO CLAIMS YOU DON’T HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHTS TO CLAIMS THAT YOU COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN ABOUT (UHHHH..?) WELL SURFS UP DUDE, YOU’RE GIVING THOSE RIGHTS UP BECAUSE THIS IS A CONTRACT AND WE JUST TOLD YOU. DON’T BE MAD. SO WE’RE DISCLAIMING ALL WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING, WHETHER OR NOT WE KNEW OR LOST OUR PSYCHIC ABILITIES AND IT SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. WE’RE KING AND QUEEN OF THE CASTLE BUDDY SO WHEN YOU COME INTO OUR SITE, YOU PLAY BY OUR RULES AND IF WE END UP BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMETHING WE’RE NOT GOING TO PAY YOU A HALF A PENNY MORE THAN WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST WEEK, OR $50 WHICH EVER IS SMALLER. IF YOU’RE FROM ONE OF THOSE BONKER ASS STATES THAT SAY YOU CAN’T HAVE PROVISIONS LIKE THIS IN A CONTRACT, OR THAT WE CAN’T LIMIT WHAT WE PAY THEN OUR DAMAGES ARE LIMITED TO THE TEENIEST TINIEST AMOUNT ALLOWED BY LAW. YESSSSS.
WELCOME, ANNYEONG HASAEO, GUTENTAG, NEI HO, BONJOUR, HOLA……If you’re outside of the United States of America, we’re going to be transferring your information from our country to yours. And you’re agreeing with this transfer by virtue of having visited and used our site. Unless you’re from North Korea, then…well…..how the hell did you get internet access!?
(MORE YELLING) YOU AND STREAMRIOT AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE STREAMRIOT SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Headings to these sections and the humorous (we hope) terms throughout this Agreement, are meant to be for entertainment purposes only and have no binding effect.
We can transfer our rights and obligations in this agreement whenever we want. Just because we don’t tie someone down and throw old fish and stale marshmallows at them for violating any section of this Agreement does not mean we’re waiving our right to enforce our Agreement, it just means we’ve cut someone some slack. This doesn’t mean we’ll do the same for you or anyone else. Tisk tisk, but we do what we want because we’re the honey badgers of multistreaming media.
Follow the law, have some fun and don’t be a tool.
