PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING AND MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS AND LIMITS REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF CERTAIN DISPUTES.
Anifie makes 3D avatar from Users’ photos, allowing our Users to dive into our 3D world from our mobile application (the “ App ”) while interacting with other Users via chats, dance, and gesture. Anifie’s 3D world offers real time, live events (“ Events ”) to Users such as music concerts, dance performances, lectures, and the like. Users can also use Anifie to generate animated video of their avatars and edit the video produced by adding texts, augmented reality filters, and music. In addition, Anifie allows Users to purchase motions, AR filters, virtual goods, and music. Anifie allows the owners (“ Influencers ”) of the intellectual property (“ IP ”), which includes motions (“ Motions ”), music (“ Music ”), virtual goods (“ Virtual Goods ”) and other visual and audio content (collectively, “ Visual and Audio Content ”), to upload their Influencer’s IP to Anifie, allowing them to profit under revenue share arrangements once users purchase the use of the IP. The content created by the Users, with or without Influencer’s IP, can be shared on Anifie, on other social networks, and via text messaging platforms. Anifie can stream real time, live, virtual events (“ Events ”) such as virtual shows, where Users can interact with other Users via voice chat and texts and can participate in the event via realistic avatars with or without Influencer’s IP. In addition, Anifie can stream, distribute, and use non-real time content stored from the live event and can also stream, distribute, and use any other content provided by the IP owner.
