The new social application for creators and promoters of ideas.
By using this website (the “Site”), this application (the ”App”) and services
(together with the Site, the App, the “Services”) offered by HappyChain
(together with its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives,
consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “HappyChain,”
“we,” or “us”), you’re agreeing to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”).
Rules on the Site/App, as well our Trust & safety section.
We may change these terms from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site/App or by sending you an email. New versions of the terms will never apply retroactively — we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using HappyChain after a change, that means you accept the new terms.
HappyChain is an online multilevel crowdfunding platform for people and
entities (“Creators” and/or “Contributors”, collectively “Users”) seeking to raise
funds for their own Projects and to contribute to the Projects of others.
Project Creators can offer rewards in the form of tangible items or intangible
services (collectively, "Perks") to Contributors.
Contributors who joined a Project can keep parts of the funds raised from the other contributors who joined the Chain in the next levels.
Users under 18 years of age are not eligible to use the Services in real money (“Cherry” items). Users between the ages of 13 and 17, can use the Services in free money (« Peanuts » items) with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old, provided such parent or legal guardian also agrees to be bound by the Terms and agrees to be responsible for such use of the Services. Users suspended from using the Services are not eligible to use the Services. HappyChain reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Project, Contribution, or the Services at any time for any reason without notice or liability.
To use HappyChain’s functions, you’ll need to register, choose an account
name, a picture and set a password. When you do that, the information you
give us must be accurate and complete. Don’t impersonate anyone else or
choose names, picture that are offensive or that violate anyone’s rights. If you
don’t follow these rules, we may cancel your account.
You’re responsible for all the activity on your account, and for keeping your password confidential. If you find out that someone’s used your account without your permission, you should report it to email@example.com.
You can terminate your account at any time sending the request at firstname.lastname@example.org. All provisions of this agreement survive termination of an account, including our rights regarding any content you’ve already submitted to the Site/App. (For instance, if you’ve launched a project, deleting your account will not remove the project from the Site.)
Creators are not permitted to create a Project to raise funds for illegal activities,
to cause harm to people or property, or to scam others. If the Project is claiming
to do the impossible or it's just plain phony, don't post it. Users must comply
with all applicable laws and regulations in connection with their Projects,
including offering Perks and using Contributions. Creators shall not make any
false or misleading statements in connection with their Projects.
Creators must not: (1) include threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libellous, or profane content in any Project, or content that is invasive of another’s privacy; (2) impersonate any person or entity, including any employee or representative of HappyChain, or (3) infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity, or other right of any other person or entity, or violate any law or contract.
Electoral campaigns are also prohibited on HappyChain.
Contributors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Creators and Projects to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Contributions are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of the Contributor. HappyChain does not guarantee that Contributions will be used as promised, that Creator will deliver Perks, or that the Project will achieve its goals. HappyChain does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, morality or legality of any Project, Perk or Contribution, or the truth or accuracy of User Content posted on the Services.
Creating an account on HappyChain is free.
Users can use free items (“Peanuts”) to Create or Contribute a Project which
not involved real money.
In order to Create or Contribute a real money Project, Users can use a Voucher (green Cherry) or buy red Cherry items. HappyChain apply 5% fee on all funds (Cherry items) raise by Creators and Contributors. To collect your funds, you must sell your items (red Cherries), so our payment partner can apply payment processing fees between 3% to 5% according your location.
We will not collect any fees without giving you a chance to review and accept them. If our fees ever change, we’ll announce that on our Site/App. Some funds pledged by Users are collected by payment providers. Each payment provider is its own company, and HappyChain isn’t responsible for its performance. You’re responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of HappyChain.
HappyChain is partner with other companies for payment processing. When you
back or create a project, you’re also agreeing to the payment processor’s terms
