If you do not agree to be bound by all of the terms of this Agreement, please do not use the Service.
We may make changes to this Agreement and the Service from time to time. We may do so for a variety of reasons, including to reflect changes or requirements of law, new features, or changes in business practices. The most recent version is the one that applies. If the changes involve material modifications to your rights or obligations, we will notify you at least 30 days in advance (unless we are not permitted to do so under applicable law) by reasonable means, either by notification of the Service or by e-mail. If you continue to use the Service after the changes become effective, you accept the revised Agreement.

Chat&Yamo reserves the right to refuse any Member it deems ineligible, without further justification and without the Member being able to make any claim in this regard. We use a combination of automated systems and a team of moderators to monitor and review accounts and messages for content that violates these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right, in our discretion, to terminate or suspend any account, restrict access to the application or website, or use any operational, technological, legal or other means available to us to enforce the Terms (including blocking specific IP addresses), at any time, without prior notice to you.
Without limiting the foregoing in any way, we expressly reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account without notice (1) for violation of these Terms, (2) because of your conduct on the Application/Website, or your conduct with respect to other users of the Application/Website (including your "offline" conduct), if we determine that your conduct was inappropriate or improper, (3) if we or our affiliates determine that your conduct on other applications/websites operated by our affiliates was inappropriate or improper, or (4) for any other reason we believe may warrant termination. If your account is terminated or suspended, you agree that you will not receive any refunds for any paid services or features.
Chat&Yamo strives to encourage a respectful user experience through features such as double opt-in, which allows members to communicate only after both have indicated their interest in each other. However, Chat&Yamo is not responsible for the conduct of any member online or offline.
You agree to exercise caution in all interactions with other members, especially if you choose to communicate outside of the Service or meet in person. In addition, you agree to review and follow Chat&Yamo's safety tips before using the Service.
You agree not to provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account), nor to transfer or send money to other members.

Chat&Yamo has a zero tolerance policy for this type of content. Although Chat&Yamo reserves the right to review and remove content that violates this agreement, such content is the sole responsibility of the member posting it, and Chat&Yamo cannot guarantee that all content will comply with this agreement.
i. Your content:
You agree that your content must comply with our requirements, as updated from time to time. As your content is unique, you are responsible for it and you undertake to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless in the event of any claim relating to your content.
It is recommended that you do not post any personal contact or banking information on your individual profile page, whether it is your own personal information or that of a third party (such as names, home addresses or zip codes, phone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit cards or other banking information). If you choose to disclose personal information about yourself to other users, whether by e-mail or otherwise, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to be as careful with your personal information online as you would be with a stranger in other circumstances.
Because Chat&Yamo is a public community, your content will be instantly visible to other users of the app/website worldwide - so make sure you're comfortable with your content being shared before you make posts. As such, you agree that your content can be seen by other users and by anyone visiting, participating in or receiving a link to the application/website (people receiving a link to a user's profile or content shared by other Chat&Yamo users). By publishing your content on Chat&Yamo, you acknowledge that you have all the necessary rights and licenses to do so, and you automatically grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual and worldwide license to use your content in any way (publishing, copying, modifying, adapting, translating, reformatting, incorporating into other works, advertising, distributing and making available to the general public, in whole or in part and in any format or medium now known or later developed).
We may assign and/or sublicense the above license to our affiliates and successors without further approval from you.
We have no obligation to store your content - if it is important, make a copy.
ii. Member Content
Other users of Chat&Yamo will also share content via the application/website. The content belongs to the user who posted it and is stored on our servers and displayed on the application/website at the user's request.
You have no right to the content of other users and you may only use their personal information insofar as your use corresponds to Chat&Yamo's objective of allowing people to meet. You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to send spam, harass, stalk or make illegal threats. We reserve the right to terminate your account if you misuse this information.
Member content is subject to the terms and conditions of the Cameroon Copyright Act of 1996.
iii. Our Content
All other text, content, graphics, user interfaces, trademarks, logos, sounds, illustrations and other intellectual property appearing on Chat&Yamo are owned, controlled or authorized by us and are protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights. All rights, titles and interests in our content belong to us at all times.
We grant you a non-exclusive, limited, personal, non-transferable, revocable license to access and use our content, without the right to sublicense, under the following conditions:
From time to time, Chat&Yamo offers paid products and services (integrated purchases) via the Apple Store, Google Play Store, Direct Carrier Billing (DCB), direct billing by Chat&Yamo or other payment platforms authorized by Chat&Yamo.
If you choose to make an in-app purchase, you will be prompted to confirm your purchase with the applicable payment provider, and your payment method (whether it is your card or a third-party account such as Google Play Store, Apple Store, MTN Mobile Money or Orange Money) will be charged for the in-app purchase at the prices displayed to you for the service(s) you selected as well as any sales or similar tax that may be imposed on your payments, and you authorize Chat&Yamo or the third party account, as the case may be, to charge you.
If you sign up for an offer that automatically renews via an integrated purchase, you will still be charged for the subscription until you cancel it. Your subscription will remain active and will automatically renew for an additional equivalent period at the same price as when you first signed up. The card payment information will be stored and used for future automatic card payments in accordance with the contract.
If you wish to change or cancel your subscription, you must go to your Settings on Chat&Yamo and follow the instructions to cancel or terminate your subscription, even if you had previously deleted your account with us or deleted the Chat&Yamo application from your device. Deleting your account on Chat&Yamo or the app from your device does not terminate or cancel your subscription; Chat&Yamo will retain all funds debited via your payment method until you terminate or cancel your subscription on Chat&Yamo or the third-party account, as applicable. If you cancel or terminate your subscription, it will remain active until the end of the term. The subscription in question will therefore not be renewed after it expires.
In general, no fees are refundable, even for partially used periods. We may make an exception if a refund is requested within fourteen (14) days of the transaction date, or if applicable laws in your jurisdiction provide for refunds.
For more information on how Chat&Yamo refunds payments, please see our Refund Policy.
You will have the opportunity to receive emails, text messages, notifications, alerts and other messages related to the App/Website and/or Chat&Yamo services, such as enhancements, offers, products, events and other promotions. After downloading the app, you will be asked to accept or decline the notifications. If you decline, you will not receive notifications. If you accept, the notifications will be automatically sent to you. If you no longer wish to receive them, you can unsubscribe by changing your notification settings on your mobile device.
