Terms of Use

TOKYO TOUCH TIME’s TERMS OF USE:

By accessing or otherwise interacting with our servers, services, website, or any associated content/postings (together, “TTT”), you agree to these Terms of Use (“TOU”) (last updated August 10, 2021). You acknowledge and agree TTT is a private site owned and operated by Tokyo Touch Time. If you do not agree to the TOU, you are not authorized to use TTT. We may modify the TOU at any time in our sole discretion. You are responsible for periodically checking for changes and are bound by them if you continue to use TTT. Our privacy policy, and all other policies, site rules, and agreements referenced below or on TTT, are fully incorporated into this TOU, and you agree to them as well.

LICENSE. If you agree to the TOU and (1) are of sufficient age and capacity to use TTT and be bound by the TOU, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable license to use TTT in compliance with the TOU; unlicensed use is unauthorized. You agree not to display, “frame,” make derivative works, distribute, license, or sell, content from TTT, excluding postings you create. You grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, unlimited, worldwide, fully paid/sublicensable license to use, copy, display, distribute, and make derivative works from content you post.

USE. Unless licensed by us in a separate written or electronic agreement, you agree not to use or provide software  or services that interact or interoperate with TTT, e.g. for downloading, uploading, creating/accessing/using an account, posting, flagging, emailing, searching, or mobile use. You agree not to copy/collect TTT content via robots, spiders, scripts, scrapers, crawlers, or any automated or manual equivalent (e.g., by hand). Misleading, unsolicited, and/or unlawful postings/communications/accounts are prohibited, as is buying or selling accounts. You agree not to post content that is prohibited by any of TTT’s policies or rules referenced above (“Prohibited Content”). You agree not to abuse TTT’s flagging or reporting processes. You agree not to collect TTT user information or interfere with TTT. You agree we may moderate TTT access/use in our sole discretion, e.g., by blocking, filtering, re-categorizing, re-ranking, deleting, delaying, holding, omitting, verifying, or terminating your access/license/account. You agree (1) not to bypass said moderation, (2) we are not liable for moderating or not moderating, and (3) nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate, or not. Unless licensed by us in a separate written or electronic agreement, you agree not to (i) rent, lease, sell, publish, distribute, license, sublicense, assign, transfer, or otherwise make available TTT or our application programming interface (“API”), (ii) copy, adapt, create derivative works of, decompile, reverse engineer, translate, localize, port or modify the App, the API, any website code, or any software used to provide TTT, (iii) combine or integrate TTT or the API with any software, technology, services, or materials not authorized by us, (iv) circumvent any functionality that controls access to or otherwise protects TTT or the API, or (v) remove or alter any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices. You agree not to use TTT or the API in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law.

LIQUIDATED DAMAGES. You further agree that if you violate the TOU, or you encourage, support, benefit from, or induce others to do so, you will be jointly and severally liable to us for liquidated damages as follows for: (A) collecting/harvesting TTT users’ information, including personal or identifying information – $10 per violation; (B) publishing/misusing personal or identifying information of a third party in connection with your use of TTT without that party’s express written consent – $1,000 per violation; (C) misrepresenting your identity or affiliation to anyone in connection with your use of TTT – $1,000 per violation; (D) posting or attempting to post Prohibited Content – $80 per violation; (E) posting or attempting to post Prohibited Content in any paid section of TTT – the price per post applicable to that section of TTT; (F) sending an unauthorized/unsolicited email to an email address obtained from TTT – $35 per violation; (G) using TTT user information to make/send an unauthorized/unsolicited text message, call, or communication to a TTT user – $500 per text/call/communication; (H) creating a misleading or unlawful TTT account or buying/selling a TTT account – $30 per violation; (I) abusing or attempting to abuse TTT’s flagging or reporting processes – $1 per violation; (J) distributing any software to facilitate violations of the USE Section – $1,100 per violation; (K) aggregating, displaying, framing, copying, duplicating, reproducing, making derivative works from, distributing, licensing, selling, or exploiting TTT content for any purpose without our express written consent – $3,400 for each day you engage in such violations; (L) requesting, viewing, or accessing more than 1,000 pages of TTT in any 24-hour period – $0.25 per page during the 24 hour period after the first 1,000 pages; (M) bypassing or attempting to bypass our moderation efforts – $40 per violation. You agree that these amounts are (1) a reasonable estimate of our damages (as actual damages are often difficult to calculate), (2) not a penalty, and (3) not otherwise limiting on our ability to recover under any legal theory or claim, including statutory damages and other equitable relief (e.g., for spam, we can elect between the above liquidated damages or statutory damages under the anti-spam statute). You further agree that repeated violations of the USE section will irreparably harm and entitle us to injunctive or equitable relief, in addition to monetary damages.

DISCLAIMER & LIABILITY. To the full extent permitted by law, Tokyo Touch Time, and its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, affiliates, and successors in interest (“TTT Entities”) (1) make no promises, warranties, or representations as to TTT, including its completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, propriety, security or reliability; (2) provide TTT on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis and any risk of using TTT is assumed by you; (3) disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including as to accuracy, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement, and all warranties arising from course of dealing, usage, or trade practice; and (4) disclaim any liability or responsibility for acts, omissions, or conduct of you or any party in connection with TTT. TTT Entities are NOT liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, incidental, special, punitive, or other losses, including lost profits, revenues, data, goodwill, etc., arising from or related to TTT, and in no event shall such liability exceed $100 or the amount you paid us in the year preceding such loss. Some jurisdictions restrict or alter these disclaimers and limits, so some may not apply to you.

CLAIMS & INDEMNITY. Any claim, cause of action, demand, or dispute arising from or related to TTT (“claims”) will be governed by the internal laws of Tokyo, Japan, without regard to conflict of law provisions, except to the extent governed by Japanese law. Any claims will be exclusively resolved by courts in Tokyo, Japan (except we may seek preliminary or injunctive relief anywhere). You agree to (1) submit to the personal jurisdiction of courts in Tokyo, Japan; (2) indemnify and hold TTT Entities harmless from any claims, losses, liability, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that arise from a third party and relate to your use of TTT; and (3) be liable and responsible for any claims we may have against your officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, or any other party, directly or indirectly, paid, directed or controlled by you, or acting for your benefit.

MISC. Unless you have entered into a separate written or electronic agreement with us that expressly references the TOU, this is the exclusive and entire agreement between us and you, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral. Users complying with prior written licenses may access TTT thereby until authorization is terminated. Our actions or silence toward you or anyone else does not waive, modify, or limit the TOU or our ability to enforce it. The USE, LIQUIDATED DAMAGES, and CLAIMS & INDEMNITY sections survive termination of the TOU, and you will remain bound by those sections. If a TOU term is unenforceable, it shall be limited to the least extent possible and supplemented with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of the parties. The English version of the TOU controls over any translations.
