In such case, all possible earnings are forfeited and Blv.Me has no financial or any other obligation to the account holder or any associated third parties.

You acknowledge, consent and agree that Blv.Me may access, preserve, and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Blv.Me, its users and the public.

You understand that the Service and software embodied within the Service may include security components that permit digital materials to be protected, and use of these materials is subject to usage rules set by Blv.Me and/or content providers who provide content to the Service. You may not attempt to override or circumvent any of the usage rules embedded into the Service. Any unauthorized reproduction, publication, further distribution or public exhibition of the materials provided on the Service, in whole or in part, is strictly prohibited.

Submitted Content

Blv.Me does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make available for inclusion on the Service. However, with respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Service, you grant Blv.Me the following world-wide, royalty free and non-exclusive license(s), as applicable:

- With respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of Blv.Me, the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Service solely for the purposes of providing and promoting the specific Service which such Content was submitted or made available. This license exists only for as long as you elect to continue to include such Content on the Service and will terminate at the time you remove or Blv.Me removes such Content from the Service.

- With respect to data you make available for inclusion on publicly accessible area of the Service, the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Service solely for the purpose for which such Content was submitted or made available. This license exists only for as long as you elect to continue to include such Content on the Service and will terminate at the time you remove or Blv.Me removes such Content from the Service.

"Publicly accessible" areas of the Service are those areas of Blv.Me that are intended by Blv.Me to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include Blv.Me news and resources that are open to both members and visitors. However, publicly accessible areas of the Service would not include portions of Blv.Me that are limited to members, Blv.Me services intended for private communication such as private messages, or areas off of Blv.Me such as portions of World Wide Web sites that are accessible through via hypertext or other links but are not hosted or served by Blv.Me.

Payments

Unless stated otherwise, Blv.Me will pay its members once a month, based on the leads they have generated and the earnings of new members they have referred to the Service. Payments do not need to be requested and they are sent directly to our members on due date.
If a member's payout information is not valid, payment will not be sent, but held, until the user updates their account with valid payout information. Blv.Me is not responsible for non-payments, in case you do not fully comply with this section of our terms. Minimum payment threshold is different for each of the available payment methods. As long as a member has entered their valid payment details, this threshold can be found on user's payment information page. If a member has not reached this minimum payout threshold within a month's period, their earnings will automatically be transferred to their next payment.
Third-party services may charge you a fee for every amount of money you receive. You agree that Blv.Me will always send you the full amount you have earned using the Service and is not responsible for any of these additional charges regarding the funds transfer, including but not limited to fees applied by local banks, e-wallets and other payment processors.
Default payment schedule is NET30, which means that payments occur approximately 30 days after the end of the month when the leads were generated. Early payments can only be sent out to publishers who earn over $3000 per month.
Payment failure: If a payment fails and the payment amount is returned to Blv.Me by the used payment processor, full payment amount is re-added to member's account balance. However, Blv.Me publishers are solely responsible for the information they provide Blv.Me with. Therefore, if a payment fails due to false information provided by the member, any costs related to the payment failure are deducted from member's account balance.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold Blv.Me, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Content you submit, post, transmit or make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another.

No resale of Service

You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service (including your Blv.Me account), use of the Service, or access to the Service.

Modification of Service

Blv.Me reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Blv.Me shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

Account Suspension, Deactivation, Termination

You agree that Blv.Me may, under certain circumstances and without prior notice, immediately terminate your Blv.Me account and access to the Service. In this case, all user's possible earnings will be forfeited and Blv.Me will have no financial or any other obligation to this user or any third-parties associated with this Blv.Me account. Cause for such termination shall include, but not be limited to, (a) breaches or violations of the TOS or other incorporated agreements or guidelines, (b) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (c) a request by you (self-initiated account deletions), (d) discontinuance or material modification to the Service (or any part thereof), (e) unexpected technical or security issues or problems, and (f) extended periods of inactivity. Termination of your Blv.Me account includes (a) removal of access to all offerings within the Service, including but not limited to Blv.Me member dashboard, (b) deletion of your password and all related information, files and content associated with or inside your account (or any part thereof), and (c) barring further use of the Service.
