Effective on April 9, 2019
Connector Street’s mission is to create a closer, more interconnected world.
Table of Contents:
You agree that by clicking “Join Connector Street”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Connector Street. If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not join the app and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.
This Contract applies to ConnectorStreet.com, CStreet.app, Connector Street-branded apps, and other Connector Street-related sites, apps, communications and other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services. Registered users of our Services are “members” and unregistered users are “visitors.” This Contract applies to both members and visitors.
1.2 Members and Visitors
When you register and join the Connector Street Services you become a member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a visitor.
We may make changes to the Contract.
2.1 Service Eligibility
Here are some promises that you make to us in this Contract:
You’re eligible to enter into this Contract and you are at least our “Minimum Age.”
The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16.
To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age.” Persons under the age of 16 are not eligible to use our Services; (2) You may only have one Connector Street account which must be in your real name; and (3) You are not already restricted by Connector Street from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16. “Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if the law requires that you must be older in order for Connector Street to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent then the Minimum Age is such older age.
2.2 Your Account
You will keep your password a secret.
You will not share an account with anyone else and will follow our rules and the law.
Members are account holders. You agree to: (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential; (3) not transfer any part of your account; and (4) follow the law and the golden rule. That is, be kind to others and do not misuse the Services for illegitimate purposes. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse. As between you and others, your account belongs to you.
There is no cost associated with Connector Street. If, at some time in the future, certain premium services are offered at a fee and you sign up to receive these services, you agree to pay the fees associated with such services.
2.4 Notices and Messages
You’re okay with us providing notices and messages to you through our websites, apps, and contact information. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss out on important notices.
You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Services, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number). You agree to keep your contact information up to date.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF CONNECTOR STREET AND ITS AFFILIATES (AND THOSE THAT CONNECTOR STREET WORKS WITH TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES) EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE FOR ALL CLAIMS, AN AMOUNT THAT IS GREATER THAN US $500.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS PART OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND CONNECTOR STREET AND SHALL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS OF LIABILITY (E.G. WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, LAW) AND EVEN IF CONNECTOR STREET OR ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN TOLD OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF THESE REMEDIES FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

7. General Terms
Here are some important details about the Contract.
If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract.
To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of this Contract is binding and other translations are for convenience only. This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.
If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that Connector Street has waived its right to enforce this Contract.
