    These Terms of Use are a legal agreement (this “Agreement”) between you or the entity you represent (“you” or “your”) and Perlu, LLC (“Perlu,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) establishing terms and conditions under which you shall access and use our services (the “Perlu Service”) at Perlu.com and its subdomains (the “Website”), which Perlu Services include a social network and online service for our users who are “influencers” and/or “brands”, for purposes of communication, collaboration and establishment of business opportunities by and among such influencers and brands. All influencers and/or brands which register for the Perlu Service are referred to herein collectively as “Members” and individually as a “Member”.

    BY USING THE PERLU SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 13 UNDER WHICH YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT AND AGREE NOT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN CLASS ACTIONS CLAIMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE PERLU SERVICE.

    By clicking the “I Agree” button or by otherwise using or registering an account for the Perlu Service, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age.

  2. The Perlu Service

    The Perlu Service is being made available to you to enable you to become part of a community of online influencers and brands with whom you can communicate and share ideas and materials. You will have the ability to create a public profile that will be available to other Members to enable such Members to communicate with you. The Perlu Service will be updated over time thereby adding additional user benefits that may be made available to you.

  3. Access Rights; Members

    The Perlu Service is being made available to you to enable you to become part of a community of online influencers and brands with whom you can communicate and share ideas and materials. You will have the ability to create a public profile that will be available to other Members to enable such Members to communicate with you. The Perlu Service will be updated over time thereby adding additional user benefits that may be made available to you.

    1. Registration

      Upon registration for the Perlu Service, whether you are an influencer or brand, you shall become a Member and be granted access to the full Perlu Service. Not all features of the Perlu Service will be available to unregistered users (“Visitors”), and features of the Perlu Service may be changed or removed at any time with or without notice. When you register for the Perlu Service you shall register with your real name and only use an image as part of your profile that is your likeness. You hereby acknowledge that we reserve the right to disable any user account with a profile which we believe (in our sole discretion) is false or misleading (including a profile that impersonates a third party).

    2. Login Credentials

      Perlu will issue to you, or enable you to establish, for you and each other user from your organization who you designate, a username and password for access and use of the Perlu Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all such login credentials and for all use of the Perlu Service using such login credentials. You must immediately notify Perlu of any unauthorized use of your login credentials or any other breach of security known to Client.

  4. Interactions and Arrangements with Other Members

    You and other Members may enter into collaborative or other arrangements arising from the introduction or connections between you and such other Members on the Perlu Service (“Member Transactions”). The Perlu Service enables you and other Members to propose and agree to the terms and conditions of Member Transactions from time to time. Perlu does not guarantee that any such Member Transactions are binding or that any Member will honor their commitments. Any Member Transactions or other interactions or information sharing between you and any other Members through the Perlu Service or which arise from your use of the Perlu Services are solely at your risk. Perlu does not guarantee that any arrangements established between you and any other user or third party will be binding or that any Member will honor any obligations. Complaints about the behavior of Members may be provided to info@perlu.com, but Perlu is under no obligation to resolve or arbitrate any disputes between Members.

  5. Fees; Payments; Commissions; No Circumvention

    1. Fees; Payments

      You shall pay fees for your use of the Perlu Service, as such fees are set forth on the Website from time to time, unless otherwise agreed in writing by you and Perlu. You acknowledge and agree that such fees will include fees per Member Transaction and/or a commission on all fees or value exchanged between you and another Member in any and all Member Transactions greater than a threshold per transaction, at a rate and threshold set forth on the Website when you enter into the applicable Member Transaction, unless otherwise agreed by you and Perlu. You and Perlu agree that such threshold shall be USD$3000.00 per Member Transaction and such commission rate shall be 25% unless otherwise agreed by the parties from time to time.

    2. Payment Processor

      Payments will be handled through a payment processor selected by Perlu from time to time. The initial payment processor shall be Stripe, though Perlu may change such payment processors from time to time. All fees paid through the payment processor shall be subject to a processing fee as set forth on our Website from time to time, which shall initially be 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction. Such fee and all other fees and commissions will be automatically added to your charges by the payment processor. If you share your credit card or other information via a third party payment processor using the Perlu Service, then you do so at your own risk and you must assess and accept the terms and conditions of that third party payment processor applicable to their payment processing services.

    3. Commissions; No Circumvention

      You agree and acknowledge that per transaction fees and commissions on Member Transactions are a fundamental term of this Agreement in exchange for the benefits you receive from the Perlu Service. Such commission obligations will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. You agree that you shall not circumvent the commissions or other fees hereunder by establishing any Member Transactions outside of the Perlu Service; you further agree to report to Perlu any and all consideration you pay or receive pursuant to any Member Transaction, except to the extent such consideration is clearly established and recorded on the Perlu Service.

PERLU AND ITS LICENSORS AND PARTNERS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY OF THE PERLU SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE PERLU SERVICE OR THE SERVERS THAT MAKE AVAILABLE THE FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY THEREOF ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.

  12. Indemnification

    You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Perlu and its affiliated companies, and each of their officers, directors and employees, harmless from any claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, (any of the foregoing, a “Claim”) arising out of or relating to your use or misuse of the Perlu Service, breach of this Agreement or infringement, misappropriation or violation of the intellectual property or other rights of any other person or entity or any Member-Owned Materials you post on our Perlu Services, provided that the foregoing does not obligate you to the extent the Claim arises out of Perlu’s willful misconduct or gross negligence.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, IN WHICH CASE PERLU’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF PERLU OR ITS AFFILIATES, CONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, OR THIRD PARTY PARTNERS OR LICENSORS TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE PERLU SERVICE EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS.

  14. Arbitration

    1. Agreement to Arbitrate

      This Section 13 is referred to herein as the “Arbitration Agreement.” The parties that any and all controversies, claims, or disputes between you and Perlu arising out of, relating to, or resulting from this Agreement, shall be subject to binding arbitration pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Arbitration Agreement, and not any court action (other than a small claims court action to the extent the claim qualifies and other than claims for injunctive or other equitable relief). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

    2. Class Action Waiver

      THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).

    3. Procedures

      Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's (“AAA”) rules and procedures (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of this Agreement as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions in Section 12.

    4. Venue

      The arbitration shall be held in Syracuse, New York or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Perlu may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on each party, but subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by either or both parties unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.

    5. Governing Law

      The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Perlu Service users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving you to the extent required by applicable law.

    6. Costs of Arbitration

      Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. Each party will be responsible for all other fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees.

    7. Confidentiality

      All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

    8. Severability

      If a court decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement other than Section 13.2 is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court decides that any of the provisions of Section 13.2 is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of this Agreement will continue to apply.

  15. Notice and Take Down Procedures; Copyright Agent

  17. Miscellaneous

    Perlu may make modifications, deletions and/or additions to this Agreement (“Changes”) at any time. Changes will be effective: (i) the later of (A) thirty (30) days after Perlu provides notice of the Changes, whether such notice is provided through the Perlu Service user interface, is sent to the e-mail address associated with your account or otherwise and (B) the expiration of any subscription period to which you have committed, through the Website or otherwise, to use the Perlu Service; or (ii) when you opt-in or otherwise expressly agree to the Changes or a version of this Agreement incorporating the Changes, whichever comes first. Under this Agreement, you consent to receive communications from Perlu electronically. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Perlu Service that is not subject to arbitration under Section 13 shall be filed only in the state or federal courts in the State of New York (or a small claims court of competent jurisdiction) and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of this Agreement shall in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Perlu without restriction. This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except in a writing, signed by both parties, or by a change to this Agreement made by Perlu as set forth herein. Note for Children. The Perlu Service is not for persons under the age of 18. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use the Perlu Service.

  18. Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy, as may be updated by Perlu from time to time in accordance with its terms, is hereby incorporated into this Agreement, and you hereby agree to the collection, use and disclosure practices set forth therein.
