5.4 Bonus Bucks
“Bonus Bucks” are a form of Service credit, where, upon receipt by a User, allows a User to accumulate Gemiplay Points at an accelerated rate (“Accelerated Earning”) while consuming Content (i.e., streaming media content) on the Service only.

8. Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright or Other Intellectual Property Infringements
8.1 Respect of Third Party Rights
Gemiplay respects the intellectual property of others and takes the protection of intellectual property very seriously, and we ask our Users to do the same. Infringing activity will not be tolerated on or through the Service.
8.2 Repeat Infringer Policy
Gemiplay’s intellectual property policy is to (i) remove or disable access to material that Gemiplay believes in good faith or upon notice from an intellectual property owner or his or her agent, is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available through the Service; (ii) remove any User Content uploaded to the Service by “repeat infringers”; and (iii) terminate the accounts of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances. Gemiplay considers a “repeat infringer” to be any User that has uploaded User Content or Feedback (as defined in Section 18) to or through the Service and for whom Gemiplay has received more than two takedown notices compliant with the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 512 with respect to such User Content or Feedback. Gemiplay has discretion, however, to terminate the Account of any User after receipt of a single notification of claimed infringement or upon Gemiplay’s own determination.
8.3 Procedure for Reporting Claimed Infringement
If you believe that any content made available on or through the Service has been used or exploited in a manner that infringes an intellectual property right you own or control, then please promptly send a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” containing the following information to the Designated Agent identified below. Your Notification of Claimed Infringement may be shared by Gemiplay with the User alleged to have infringed a right you own or control, and you hereby consent to Gemiplay making such disclosure. Your communication must include substantially the following:
- 8.3.1 A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the work(s) that has/have been allegedly infringed;
- 8.3.2 Identification of works or materials being infringed, or, if multiple works are covered by a single notification, then a representative list of such works;
- 8.3.3 Identification of the specific material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Gemiplay to locate the material;
- 8.3.4 Information reasonably sufficient to permit Gemiplay to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
- 8.3.5 A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
- 8.3.6 A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You should consult with your own lawyer and/or see 17 U.S.C. § 512 to confirm your obligations to provide a valid notice of claimed infringement.
8.4 Designated Agent Contact Information
Gemiplay’s designated agent for receipt of Notifications of Claimed Infringement (the “Designated Agent”) can be contacted at:
E-mail: [email protected]
8.5 Counter Notification
If you receive a notification from Gemiplay that material made available by you on or through the Service has been the subject of a Notification of Claimed Infringement, then you will have the right to provide Gemiplay with what is called a “Counter Notification.” To be effective, a Counter Notification must be in writing, provided to Gemiplay’s Designated Agent through one of the methods identified in Section 8.4 and include substantially the following information:
- 8.5.1 A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
- 8.5.2 Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- 8.5.3 A statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- 8.5.4 The subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the Nepal, then for any judicial district in which Gemiplay may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under Section 8.4 above or an agent of such person. A party submitting a Counter Notification should consult a lawyer or see 17 U.S.C. § 512 to confirm the party’s obligations to provide a valid counter notification under the Copyright Act.
8.6 Reposting of Content Subject to a Counter Notification
If you submit a Counter Notification to Gemiplay in response to a Notification of Claimed Infringement, then Gemiplay will promptly provide the person who provided the Notification of Claimed Infringement with a copy of your Counter Notification and inform that person that Gemiplay will replace the removed User Content or Feedback or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days, and Gemiplay will replace the removed User Content or Feedback and cease disabling access to it not less than 10, nor more than 14, business days following receipt of the Counter Notification, unless Gemiplay’s Designated Agent receives notice from the party that submitted the Notification of Claimed Infringement that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the User from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Gemiplay’s system or network.
8.7 False Notifications of Claimed Infringement or Counter Notifications
The Copyright Act provides that: [a]ny person who knowingly materially misrepresents under [Section 512 of the Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512)] (1) that material or activity is infringing, or (2) that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by a service provider, who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of [Gemiplay] relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it. 17 U.S.C. § 512(f). Gemiplay reserves the right to seek damages from any party that submits a Notification of Claimed Infringement or Counter Notification in violation of the law.
9. Term and Termination
Gemiplay may terminate your Account at any time for a breach of these Terms with or without notice. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if your Account has any Gemiplay Points associated with it, then prior to termination of your Account, Gemiplay may communicate with you about the termination and possible loss of your Gemiplay Points. You hereby consent to our communicating with you in such circumstances and as otherwise set forth in these Terms.

13. Force Majeure
Gemiplay will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation herein if the delay or failure is due to unforeseen events that are beyond Gemiplay’s reasonable control, such as, by way of example and not limitation, strikes, blockade, war, terrorism, riots, natural disasters, epidemic, or governmental action, in so far as such an event prevents or delays Gemiplay in fulfilling its obligations hereunder.

15. Third Party Services
The Service may contain content or information about content, products, and services provided by third parties, and links (including, but not limited to, advertisements of apps) to third party content or web sites (“Third Party Services”).

16. Dispute Resolution
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Gemiplay in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Gemiplay agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms.YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND Gemiplay ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
Despite the provisions of Section 16.1 above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of law; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and Gemiplay will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Gemiplay. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
16.4 Notice; Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail or electronic mail within the applicable statute of limitations period (“Notice”). Gemiplay’s address for Notice is: Gemiplay ,Nepal. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Gemiplay may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Gemiplay must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by Gemiplay prior to selection of an arbitrator, then Gemiplay will pay you the highest of the following: (X) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (Y) the last written settlement amount offered by Gemiplay in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (Z) $15,000.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, then Gemiplay will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Chicago, Illinois, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Gemiplay for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
16.6 No Class Actions
YOU AND Gemiplay AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (OTHER THAN CLAIMS WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS SECTION 17). Further, unless both you and Gemiplay agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
16.7 Modifications to this Arbitration Provision
Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, if Gemiplay makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Gemiplay’s address for Notice, then you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Gemiplay’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Gemiplay. If you do not send such written notice, then your continued use of the Service following any such change means that you have consented to such change.
If Section 16.6 above is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 16 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 16 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described directly below will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service.
17. Governing Law; Choice of Forum
The laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern these Terms and your use of the Service. Your use of the Service may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws; provided, however, that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any provision of these Terms. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
While we are continually working to develop and evaluate our own product ideas and features, we know we don’t have all the answers. We therefore welcome your feedback, comments, and suggestions. If you choose to contribute by sending Gemiplay or our employees any ideas for products, services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, refinements, technologies, content offerings (such as audio, visual, games, or other types of content), promotions, strategies, or product/feature names or any related documentation, artwork, computer code, diagrams, or other materials (collectively “Feedback”), then regardless of what your accompanying communication may say, the following terms will apply, so that future misunderstandings can be avoided. Accordingly, by sending Feedback to Gemiplay, you agree that:
- 18.1 Gemiplay has no obligation to review, consider or implement your Feedback, or to return to you all or part of any Feedback for any reason;
- 18.2 Feedback is provided on a non-confidential basis, and Gemiplay is not under any obligation to keep any Feedback you send confidential or to refrain from using or disclosing it in any way; and
- 18.3 You irrevocably grant Gemiplay perpetual and unlimited permission to Use the Feedback and derivatives thereof for any purpose and without restriction, free of charge and without attribution of any kind, including by making, using, selling, offering for sale, importing, and promoting commercial products and services that incorporate or embody Feedback, whether in whole or in part, and whether as provided or as modified.
19.1 Entire Agreement; Variation
These Terms set forth the entire agreement between Gemiplay and you with respect to the Service. These Terms supersede and govern all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into these Terms. No usage of trade or other regular practice or method of dealing between the parties will be used to modify, interpret, supplement, or alter these Terms. Except as set forth in Section 1.2, these Terms may be changed only by a written amendment signed by an authorized agent of each party.
If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, then such provisions will be modified, or, if not possible, severed, to reflect the fullest valid, legal, and enforceable expression of the intent of the parties and the remainder of these Terms will not be affected thereby.
19.3 Relationship of Parties
Nothing herein will be deemed to create an employer-employee relationship between Gemiplay and you, nor any agency, joint venture, or partnership relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the right to bind the other to any obligation, nor have the right to incur any liability on behalf of the other.
No delay, omission, or failure to exercise any right or remedy provided herein will be deemed to be a waiver thereof or an acquiescence in the event giving rise to such right or remedy, but every such right or remedy may be exercised, from time to time as may be deemed expedient by the party exercising such remedy or right.
The Section headings are provided merely for convenience and will not be given any legal import.
Neither these Terms nor any of the rights granted to you herein may be assigned or transferred by you, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the express prior written permission of Gemiplay and any attempt to do so will be null and void. This means that in the event you dispose of any device on which you have installed the App, such as by sale or gift, you are responsible for deleting any the App from your device prior to such disposition. However, Gemiplay may assign or transfer these Terms at any time without your permission. These Terms will inure to the benefit of our successors and assigns.

Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Service. In the event of any failure of the Service to conform to any applicable warranty, then you may notify Apple and Apple will refund the purchase price for the relevant Service to you; and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Service.
