Users shall abide by the appropriate conditions when using contents which are subject to additional fees and periods of use.

In such cases, users who posted their contents have to allow other users to perform any editing in relation to the submitted contents.
Users shall maintain the rights regarding their submitted contents just as before, and the Platform shall not acquire any rights to such contents. However, if the submitted contents are visible, not just to the user’s “friends” but to all the other users, the users who post these contents shall grant the Platform a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense such content to other third parties working together with us), for an indefinite period, to use (after modifying such content, if the Platform believes it necessary and proper) such content for services and/or promotional purposes.

Terms of Sales
iQ Credits (the “Credits”) will be provided to users by the means specified by the Platform, such as redemption of gift cards, special offers, and the like. Details regarding the payment methods, units, and all other conditions regarding the Credits will be decided by us and displayed accordingly within our Services.
Credit cannot be exchanged or used for any other purposes other than the ones offered by the Services. The number of Credits required for receiving the offered services, contents, and the like will be decided by the Platform and displayed accordingly within the Services. Once users initiate the process of exchanging the credits for contents or services, refunding and cancellation may or may not be available according to applicable laws.
The Platform reserves the right to modify or cease, at our own discretion, the whole or part of the Service at anytime without any prior notice to the Users.
Once Credits are added to users’ accounts, they are non-refundable in any means, including cash, prepaid card, etc. – unless the Platform terminates the said accounts or explicitly agree, or required by any applicable laws. Credits cannot be exchanged among users or different accounts on the Platform. We reserve the right to carry out any appropriate measures in case of violation.
Users shall use our Services at their own risk, and shall bear all responsibility for actions carried out and their results upon the Services. We may take measures that we consider necessary and appropriate if we acknowledge that a user is using the Services in a way which violates these Terms. However, we shall not be responsible for correcting or preventing such violation towards users or others.
Disclaimer of Exemption of Liability
In the case where we have suffered loss/damage or have been charged an expense (including but not limited to lawyer’s fees) directly or indirectly (including but not limited to cases where we have been sued for damages by a third party) due to a user violating applicable laws or the Terms while using our Services, the user shall immediately compensate us upon our request.
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care, but there are certain things that we do not promise about our Services. We do not guarantee, in any explicit or implied way, that the Services (including these Terms) do not have factual defects or legal defects (including safety, reliability, accuracy, completeness, validity, fitness for specific purpose, safety-related fault, error or program mistake, infringement). We shall not be obligated to correct such defects before providing the Services, and shall assume no responsibility for any damage incurred to the users due to the Services.
About These Terms
We may modify the Terms and separate terms whenever we deem necessary, without providing prior notice to the users. All changes regarding these Terms and separate terms will be effective immediately upon being posted on an appropriate location within the website operated by us. Users shall be deemed to have granted valid and irrevocable consent to the modified Terms and separate terms by continuing to use the Services.
We will not notify users of modified Terms individually, and hence users must review these Terms regularly for updates and the separate terms when using our Platform. Changes in Terms will apply retroactively unless we post notice of terminating those Terms. If you do not agree to the modified Terms for our Services, you should discontinue your use of our Services.
