7. How the Service Works.
a. Generally: The DareHero Service allows Users to dare other Users from their personal network or from the whole community to take certain actions (a “Dare”). By way of example, here’s how the Service works:
User A sends a Dare to User B to tell a joke to a stranger (the “Required Action”). If User B accepts the Dare s/he can upload a response video to demonstrate her/his active participation. If User B rejects the Dare, s/he can still like or comment on the video.
b. Dares are Not Contracts; Dares are Not Wagers; Unwilling Participants.
You acknowledge and agree that Dares are not contracts and that an acceptance, rejection, or non-response to a Dare does not create a binding agreement between you and any other User.
You acknowledge and agree that Dares are not wagers, and that DareHero forbids any activity on the Service that could be construed as gambling. THE SERVICE MAY NOT BE USED FOR ANY FORM OF GAMBLING. Violations of this section may result in disciplinary action, including without limitation suspension of your account.
You acknowledge and agree that no User is required to take any action in response to a Dare from you; and that you are not required to take any action in response to a Dare from anyone else.
You agree that if, at any time, any User requests that you refrain from contacting them, whether regarding a Dare or otherwise, that you will immediately cease communications with them. Violations of this subsection may result in disciplinary action, including without limitation the suspension of your account.
c. Blocking users
In case a user exhibits any of the below behaviors directed at another person, whether it's a user on the site or not, you may block the user. Blocking a user will disable any further communication on the site between you and the targeted user and will additionally hide their existing videos and comments while you are logged into your account. The targeted user will also be unable to view your videos or comments while logged in. Your subscription to each other, if active, will be deleted. Please note the person whose user you blocked may still view your videos and comments if they are not logged in, but will be unable to post responses or comments.
Violent threats involving physical safety or well-being
Exposing private information, whether it's in written form or imagery (e.g. contact information, financial account information, a government-issued ID or ID number, an unauthorized photo or video of you)
Posting spam in the comments
Directing hate against a protected category (e.g. race, religion, gender, orientation, disability)
You may also report the user at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will examine the reported violations and take appropriate action.
d. Unblocking users
To unblock a user visit your account to view your blocked list and select the user you wish to unblock. This will reestablish full communication between you and the targeted user, including the ability to view videos and post responses and comments. Please note if you were subscribed before, you need to subscribe to their account again.
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while you use the Websites and/or Service. You may terminate your membership and/or subscription at any time via a link on your "Account" page. Alternatively, you may terminate your membership and/or subscription by contacting us at email@example.com. If you resign or cancel your membership and/or subscription to DareHero, to help DareHero analyze and improve the Service, you may be asked to provide a reason for your resignation/cancellation. DareHero may terminate your membership and/or subscription for any reason. All decisions regarding the termination of accounts shall be made in the sole discretion of DareHero. DareHero is not required to provide you notice prior or subsequent to terminating your membership and/or subscription. DareHero is not required, and may be prohibited, from disclosing a reason for the termination of your account. Even after your membership or subscription is terminated, this Agreement will remain in effect. All terms that by their nature may survive termination of this Agreement shall be deemed to survive such termination.
9. Modifications to Service
