Terms of Service
Welcome to Imeobi!
Imeobi builds technologies and services that enable people to connect with each other, build communities, and grow businesses. These Terms govern your use of Imeobi, Messenger, and the other products, features, apps, services, technologies, and software we offer (the Imeobi Products or Products), except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Products are provided to you by Imeobi, Inc.
We don’t charge you to use Imeobi or the other products and services covered by these Terms. Instead, businesses and organizations pay us to show you ads for their products and services. By using our Products, you agree that we can show you ads that we think will be relevant to you and your interests. We use your personal data to help determine which ads to show you.
We don’t sell your personal data to advertisers, and we don’t share information that directly identifies you (such as your name, email address or other contact information) with advertisers unless you give us specific permission. Instead, advertisers can tell us things like the kind of audience they want to see their ads, and we show those ads to people who may be interested. We provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads that help them understand how people are interacting with their content. See Section 2 below to learn more.
Our Data Policy explains how we collect and use your personal data to determine some of the ads you see and provide all of the other services described below. You can also go to your settings at any time to review the privacy choices you have about how we use your data.

1. The services we provide
Our mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To help advance this mission, we provide the Products and services described below to you:
Provide a personalized experience for you:
Your experience on Imeobi is unlike anyone else's: from the posts, stories, events, ads, and other content you see in News Feed or our video platform to the Pages you follow and other features you might use, such as Trending, Marketplace, and search. We use the data we have - for example, about the connections you make, the choices and settings you select, and what you share and do on and off our Products - to personalize your experience.
Connect you with people and organizations you care about:
We help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that matter to you across the Imeobi Products you use. We use the data we have to make suggestions for you and others - for example, groups to join, events to attend, Pages to follow or send a message to, shows to watch, and people you may want to become friends with. Stronger ties make for better communities, and we believe our services are most useful when people are connected to people, groups, and organizations they care about.
Empower you to express yourself and communicate about what matters to you:
There are many ways to express yourself on Imeobi and to communicate with friends, family, and others about what matters to you - for example, sharing status updates, photos, videos, and stories across the Imeobi Products you use, sending messages to a friend or several people, creating events or groups, or adding content to your profile. We have also developed, and continue to explore, new ways for people to use technology, such as augmented reality and 360 video to create and share more expressive and engaging content on Imeobi.
Help you discover content, products, and services that may interest you:
We show you ads, offers, and other sponsored content to help you discover content, products, and services that are offered by the many businesses and organizations that use Imeobi and other Imeobi Products. Section 2 below explains this in more detail.
Combat harmful conduct and protect and support our community:
People will only build community on Imeobi if they feel safe. We employ dedicated teams around the world and develop advanced technical systems to detect misuse of our Products, harmful conduct towards others, and situations where we may be able to help support or protect our community. If we learn of content or conduct like this, we will take appropriate action - for example, offering help, removing content, removing or restricting access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement. We share data with other Imeobi Companies when we detect misuse or harmful conduct by someone using one of our Products.
Use and develop advanced technologies to provide safe and functional services for everyone:
We use and develop advanced technologies - such as artificial intelligence, machine learning systems, and augmented reality - so that people can use our Products safely regardless of physical ability or geographic location. For example, technology like this helps people who have visual impairments understand what or who is in photos or videos shared on Imeobi. We also build sophisticated network and communication technology to help more people connect to the internet in areas with limited access. And we develop automated systems to improve our ability to detect and remove abusive and dangerous activity that may harm our community and the integrity of our Products.
Research ways to make our services better:
We engage in research to develop, test, and improve our Products. This includes analyzing the data we have about our users and understanding how people use our Products, for example by conducting surveys and testing and troubleshooting new features. Our Data Policy explains how we use data to support this research for the purposes of developing and improving our services.
Provide consistent and seamless experiences across the Imeobi Global Technology Company Products:
Our Products help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that are important to you. We design our systems so that your experience is consistent and seamless across the different Imeobi Global Technology Company Products that you use. For example, we use data about the people you engage with on Imeobi to make it easier for you to connect with them on Messenger, and we enable you to communicate with a business you follow on Imeobi through Messenger.
Enable global access to our services:
To operate our global service, we need to store and distribute content and data in our data centers and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence. This infrastructure may be operated or controlled by Imeobi Global Technology USA, or its affiliates.

2. How our services are funded
Instead of paying to use Imeobi and the other products and services we offer, by using the Imeobi Products covered by these Terms, you agree that we can show you ads that businesses and organizations pay us to promote on and off the Imeobi Company Products. We use your personal data, such as information about your activity and interests, to show you ads that are more relevant to you.
Protecting people's privacy is central to how we've designed our ad system. This means that we can show you relevant and useful ads without telling advertisers who you are. We don't sell your personal data. We allow advertisers to tell us things like their business goal, and the kind of audience they want to see their ads (for example, people between the age of 18-35 who like cycling). We then show their ad to people who might be interested.
We also provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads to help them understand how people are interacting with their content on and off Imeobi. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madrid and likes software engineering) to help them better understand their audience. We don’t share information that directly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us specific permission. Learn more about how Imeobi ads work here.
We collect and use your personal data in order to provide the services described above to you. You can learn about how we collect and use your data in our Data Policy. You have controls over the types of ads and advertisers you see, and the types of information we use to determine which ads we show you. Learn more.

3. Your commitments to Imeobi and our community
We provide these services to you and others to help advance our mission. In exchange, we need you to make the following commitments:
1. Who can use Imeobi
When people stand behind their opinions and actions, our community is safer and more accountable. For this reason, you must:
Use the same name that you use in everyday life.
Provide accurate information about yourself.
Create only one account (your own) and use your timeline for personal purposes.
Not share your password, give access to your Imeobi account to others, or transfer your account to anyone else (without our permission).
We try to make Imeobi broadly available to everyone, but you cannot use Imeobi if:
You are under 13 years old (or the minimum legal age in your country to use our Products).
You are a convicted sex offender.
We've previously disabled your account for violations of our Terms or Policies.
You are prohibited from receiving our products, services, or software under applicable laws.
2. What you can share and do on Imeobi
We want people to use Imeobi to express themselves and to share content that is important to them, but not at the expense of the safety and well-being of others or the integrity of our community. You therefore agree not to engage in the conduct described below (or to facilitate or support others in doing so):
You may not use our Products to do or share anything:
That violates these Terms, our Community Standards, and other terms and policies that apply to your use of Imeobi.
That is unlawful, misleading, discriminatory or fraudulent.
That infringes or violates someone else's rights, including their intellectual property rights.
You may not upload viruses or malicious code or do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working or appearance of our Products.
You may not access or collect data from our Products using automated means (without our prior permission) or attempt to access data you do not have permission to access.
We can remove or restrict access to content that is in violation of these provisions.
If we remove content that you have shared in violation of our Community Standards, we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request another review, unless you seriously or repeatedly violate these Terms or if doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Products; where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
To help support our community, we encourage you to report content or conduct that you believe violates your rights (including intellectual property rights) or our terms and policies.
3. The permissions you give us
We need certain permissions from you to provide our services:
Permission to use content you create and share: Some content that you share or upload, such as photos or videos, may be protected by intellectual property laws.
You own the intellectual property rights (things like copyright or trademarks) in any such content that you create and share on Imeobi and the other Imeobi Company Products you use. Nothing in these Terms takes away the rights you have to your own content. You are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want.
However, to provide our services we need you to give us some legal permissions (known as a ‘license’) to use this content. This is solely for the purposes of providing and improving our Products and services as described in Section 1 above.
Specifically, when you share, post, or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Products, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and application settings). This means, for example, that if you share a photo on Imeobi, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others (again, consistent with your settings) such as service providers that support our service or other Imeobi Products you use.This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems.
You can delete content individually or all at once by deleting your account. Learn more about how to delete your account. You can download a copy of your data at any time before deleting your account.
When you delete content, it’s no longer visible to other users, however it may continue to exist elsewhere on our systems where:
immediate deletion is not possible due to technical limitations (in which case, your content will be deleted within a maximum of 90 days from when you delete it);
your content has been used by others in accordance with this license and they have not deleted it (in which case this license will continue to apply until that content is deleted); or
where immediate deletion would restrict our ability to:
investigate or identify illegal activity or violations of our terms and policies (for example, to identify or investigate misuse of our Products or systems);
comply with a legal obligation, such as the preservation of evidence; or
comply with a request of a judicial or administrative authority, law enforcement or a government agency;
in which case, the content will be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it has been retained (the exact duration will vary on a case-by-case basis).
In each of the above cases, this license will continue until the content has been fully deleted.
Permission to use your name, profile picture, and information about your actions with ads and sponsored content: You give us permission to use your name and profile picture and information about actions you have taken on Imeobi next to or in connection with ads, offers, and other sponsored content that we display across our Products, without any compensation to you. For example, we may show your friends that you are interested in an advertised event or have liked a Page created by a brand that has paid us to display its ads on Imeobi. Ads like this can be seen only by people who have your permission to see the actions you've taken on Imeobi. You can learn more about your ad settings and preferences.
Permission to update software you use or download: If you download or use our software, you give us permission to download and install updates to the software where available.
4. Limits on using our intellectual property
If you use content covered by intellectual property rights that we have and make available in our Products (for example, images, designs, videos, or sounds we provide that you add to content you create or share on Imeobi), we retain all rights to that content (but not yours). You can only use our copyrights or trademarks (or any similar marks) as expressly permitted by our Brand Usage Guidelines or with our prior written permission. You must obtain our written permission (or permission under an open source license) to modify, create derivative works of, decompile, or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us.

4. Additional provisions
1. Updating our Terms
We work constantly to improve our services and develop new features to make our Products better for you and our community. As a result, we may need to update these Terms from time to time to accurately reflect our services and practices. We will only make any changes if the provisions are no longer appropriate or if they are incomplete, and only if the changes are reasonable and take due account of your interests.
We will notify you (for example, by email or through our Products) at least 30 days before we make changes to these Terms and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect, unless changes are required by law. Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our Products.
We hope that you will continue using our Products, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to be a part of the Imeobi community, you can delete your account at any time.
2. Account suspension or termination
We want Imeobi to be a place where people feel welcome and safe to express themselves and share their thoughts and ideas.
If we determine that you have clearly, seriously or repeatedly breached our Terms or Policies, including in particular our Community Standards, we may suspend or permanently disable access to your account. We may also suspend or disable your account if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights or where we are required to do so for legal reasons.
Where we take such action we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review, unless doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Products; or where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
You can learn more about what you can do if your account has been disabled and how to contact us if you think we have disabled your account by mistake.
If you delete or we disable your account, these Terms shall terminate as an agreement between you and us, but the following provisions will remain in place: 3, 4.2-4.5.
3. Limits on liability
We work hard to provide the best Products we can and to specify clear guidelines for everyone who uses them. Our Products, however, are provided "as is," and we make no guarantees that they always will be safe, secure, or error-free, or that they will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. To the extent permitted by law, we also DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. We do not control or direct what people and others do or say, and we are not responsible for their actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or any content they share (including offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful, and other objectionable content).
We cannot predict when issues might arise with our Products. Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstance will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms or the Imeobi Products, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
We try to provide clear rules so that we can limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and us. If a dispute does arise, however, it's useful to know up front where it can be resolved and what laws will apply.
If you are a consumer, the laws of the country in which you reside will apply to any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms or the Imeobi Products, and you may resolve your claim in any competent court in that country that has jurisdiction over the claim. In all other cases, you agree that the claim must be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County. You also agree that you submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of the State of California will govern these Terms and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
These Terms (formerly known as the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities) make up the entire agreement between you and Imeobi Global Technology Company. regarding your use of our Products. They supersede any prior agreements.
Some of the Products we offer are also governed by supplemental terms. If you use any of those Products, supplemental terms will be made available and will become part of our agreement with you. For instance, if you access or use our Products for commercial or business purposes, such as buying ads, selling products, developing apps, managing a group or Page for your business, or using our measurement services, you must agree to our Commercial Terms. If you post or share content containing music, you must comply with our Music Guidelines. To the extent any supplemental terms conflict with these Terms, the supplemental terms shall govern to the extent of the conflict.
If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to enforce any of these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms must be made in writing and signed by us.
You will not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent.
You may designate a person (called a legacy contact) to manage your account if it is memorialized. Only your legacy contact or a person who you have identified in a valid will or similar document expressing clear consent to disclose your content upon death or incapacity will be able to seek disclosure from your account after it is memorialized.
These Terms do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights. All of our rights and obligations under these Terms are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise.
You should know that we may need to change the username for your account in certain circumstances (for example, if someone else claims the username and it appears unrelated to the name you use in everyday life). We will inform you in advance if we have to do this and explain why.
We always appreciate your feedback and other suggestions about our products and services. But you should know that we may use them without any restriction or obligation to compensate you, and we are under no obligation to keep them confidential.
We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.

5. Other terms and policies that may apply to you
Community Standards: These guidelines outline our standards regarding the content you post to Imeobi and your activity on Imeobi and other Imeobi Products.
Every day, people use Imeobi to share their experiences, connect with friends and family, and build communities. We are a service for people to freely express themselves across countries and cultures and languages.
We recognize how important it is for Imeobi to be a place where people feel empowered to communicate, and we take seriously our role in keeping abuse off our service. That’s why we’ve developed a set of Community Standards that outline what is and is not allowed on Imeobi. Our policies are based on feedback from our community and the advice of experts in fields such as technology, public safety and human rights. To ensure that everyone’s voice is valued, we take great care to craft policies that are inclusive of different views and beliefs, in particular those of people and communities that might otherwise be overlooked or marginalized.
REITERATING OUR COMMITMENT TO VOICE
The goal of our Community Standards has always been to create a place for expression and give people a voice. This has not and will not change. Building community and bringing the world closer together depends on people’s ability to share diverse views, experiences, ideas and information. We want people to be able to talk openly about the issues that matter to them, even if some may disagree or find them objectionable. In some cases, we allow content for public awareness which would otherwise go against our Community Standards – if it is newsworthy and in the public interest. We do this only after weighing the public interest value against the risk of harm and we look to international human rights standards to make these judgments.
Our commitment to expression is paramount, but we recognize the internet creates new and increased opportunities for abuse. For these reasons, when we limit expression, we do it in service of one or more of the following values:
Authenticity: We want to make sure the content people are seeing on Imeobi is authentic. We believe that authenticity creates a better environment for sharing, and that’s why we don’t want people using Imeobi to misrepresent who they are or what they’re doing.
Safety: We are committed to making Imeobi a safe place. Expression that threatens people has the potential to intimidate, exclude or silence others and isn’t allowed on Imeobi.
Privacy: We are committed to protecting personal privacy and information. Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves, and to choose how and when to share on Imeobi and to connect more easily.
Dignity: We believe that all people are equal in dignity and rights. We expect that people will respect the dignity of others and not harass or degrade others.
Our Community Standards apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of content. They’re designed to be comprehensive – for example, content that might not be considered hateful may still be removed for violating a different policy. We recognize that words mean different things or affect people differently depending on their local community, language, or background. We work hard to account for these nuances while also applying our policies consistently and fairly to people and their expression. In the case of certain policies, we require more information and/or context to enforce in line with our Community Standards.
People can report potentially violating content, including Pages, Groups, Profiles, individual content, and comments. We also give people control over their own experience by allowing them to block, unfollow or hide people and posts.
The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person's history on the platform. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if they continue to violate our policies, we may restrict their ability to post on Imeobi or disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety.
Our Community Standards are a guide for what is and isn’t allowed on Imeobi. It is in this spirit that we ask members of the Imeobi community to follow these guidelines.
Please note that the English version of the Community Standards reflects the most up to date set of the policies and should be used as the master document.
Commercial Terms: These terms apply if you also access or use our Products for any commercial or business purpose, including advertising, operating an app on our Platform, using our measurement services, managing a group or a Page for a business, or selling goods or services.
Imeobi Commercial Terms
The Imeobi Terms and these terms (the “Imeobi Commercial Terms” or “Commercial Terms”) apply to access or use of the Imeobi Products (or Products), including Imeobi Business Tools, for any business or commercial purpose (except where we state that separate terms (and not these) apply to such access or use of a Imeobi Product). This includes, but is not limited to, buying ads, selling products, developing apps, managing a group or Page for a business, or using our measurement services.
You agree that you will ensure that any third party on whose behalf you access or use any Imeobi Product for any business or commercial purpose (except, again, where we state that separate terms (and not these) apply to such access or use) is bound by the Terms, these Commercial Terms and any applicable supplemental terms, and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that third party to such terms.
These Commercial Terms require the resolution of most disputes between you and us by binding arbitration on an individual basis; class actions and jury trials are not permitted.
Note: we have updated the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, including changing its name to the Imeobi Terms of Service. For purposes of these Commercial Terms, references in existing terms or agreements to (i) “the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities,” “Statement,” or “SRR,” shall now mean the Imeobi Terms or Terms and (ii) “Imeobi” (when used to refer to our products and services) or “Imeobi Services” or “Services” shall now mean Imeobi Products.
Licenses: As described in “The permissions you give us” section in our Terms, you grant us a license to content that is covered by intellectual property rights (like photos or videos) you share, post, or upload on or in connection with our Products. For any access or use of the Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes, that license applies to content you or someone on your behalf (such as your agency that places an ad for you or your service provider that manages your Page content for you) makes available on or in connection with any Imeobi Product.
You also will ensure that you own or have secured all rights necessary to grant the licenses and rights you (or someone on your behalf) grant to us under the Commercial Terms and any applicable supplemental terms, including permission to display, distribute and deliver your content within Imeobi Products.
Compliance with law: You represent and warrant that your access or use of Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes complies with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. You further represent that you will restrict access to your content and apps in accordance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, including geo-filtering or age-gating access where required.
In addition to and without limiting the requirements about who can use the Imeobi Products under our Terms, if you are located in a country that is subject to embargo under the laws of the United States (or under similar laws applicable to you) you may not engage in commercial activities on Imeobi Products unless authorized by applicable laws. If you are on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals (or an equivalent lists), you may not engage in commercial or business activities on the Imeobi Products (such as advertising or payments). You also may not access or use the Imeobi Products if you are prohibited from receiving products, services, or software under applicable law.
Limits on liability: In addition to and without limiting the scope of the “Limits on liability” section in our Terms, you agree that we are not responsible for the actions, services, content, or data of third parties and you release us, our directors, officers, employees, and agents from any claims and damages, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any claim you have against any such third parties.
If you are a California resident, you agree to waive California Civil Code § 1542, which says:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to any access or use of the Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes, the Terms (for any access or use of the Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes), or these Commercial Terms shall not exceed the greater of one hundred dollars ($100) or the amount you have paid us in the past twelve months.
Indemnification. If anyone brings a claim, cause of action, or dispute against us related to your services, actions, content or information on Imeobi or other Imeobi Products or your use of any Imeobi Products, you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to any such claim, cause of action, or dispute.
If you reside outside the US or your business is located outside the US: You agree that any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against us that arises out of or relates to any access or use of the Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes must be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County, that you submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of the State of California will govern these Commercial Terms and any such claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
If you reside in the US or your business is located in the US: You and we agree to arbitrate any claim, cause of action, or dispute between you and us that arises out of or relates to any access or use of the Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes (“commercial claim”). This provision does not cover any commercial claims relating to violations of your or our intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, copyright infringement, patent infringement, trademark infringement, violations of the Brand Usage Guidelines, violations of your or our confidential information or trade secrets, or efforts to interfere with our Products or engage with our Products in unauthorized ways (for example, automated ways).
We and you agree that, by entering into this arbitration provision all parties are waiving their respective rights to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING COMMERCIAL CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. You may bring a commercial claim only on your own behalf and cannot seek relief that would affect other parties. If there is a final judicial determination that any particular commercial claim (or a request for particular relief) cannot be arbitrated in accordance with this paragraph’s limiations, then only that commercial claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other commercial claims (or requests for relief) remain subject to this paragraph.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. All issues are for an arbitrator to decide, except that only a court may decide issues relating to the scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision or the interpretation of the prohibition of class and representative actions.
If any party intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other party with notice in writing. This notice of dispute to us must be sent to the following address:
Imeobi Global Technology LLC.
3607 Buffaloe Rd.
Raleigh, NC 27604
The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by these Commercial Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties will agree to another arbitration provider or the court will appoint a substitute. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in other arbitrations in which you are not a party. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any evidentiary submissions made in arbitration will be maintained as confidential in the absence of good cause for its disclosure. The arbitrator’s award will be maintained as confidential only to the extent necessary to protect either party’s trade secrets or proprietary business information or to comply with a legal requirement mandating confidentiality. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA Rules, except that we will pay for your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if your commercial claim for damages does not exceed $2,500 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
If you do not wish to be bound by this provision (including its waiver of class and representative claims), you must notify us as set forth below within 30 days of the first acceptance date of any version of these Commercial Terms containing an arbitration provision. Your notice to us under this subsection must be submitted to the address here:
Imeobi Global Technology LLC.
3607 Buffaloe Rd.
Raleigh, NC 27604
All commercial claims between us, whether subject to arbitration or not, will be governed by California law, excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, except to the extent that California law is contrary to or preempted by federal law.
If a commercial claim between you and us is not subject to arbitration, you agree that the claim must be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County, and that you submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim.
If any provision of this dispute resolution provision is found unenforceable, that provision will be severed and the balance of the dispute resolution provision will remain in full force and effect
Updates: We may need to update these Commercial Terms from time to time, including to accurately reflect the access or uses of our Products for business or commercial purposes, and so we encourage you check them regularly for any updates. By continuing any access or use of any Imeobi Products for business or commercial purposes after any notice of an update to these Commercial Terms, you agree to be bound by them. Any updates to the Disputes section of these Commercial Terms will apply only to disputes that arise after notice of the update takes place.

Advertising Policies: These policies specify what types of ad content are allowed by partners who advertise across the Imeobi Products.
Understanding Our Policies
Our Advertising Policies provide guidance on what types of ad content are allowed. When advertisers place an order, each ad is reviewed against these policies. If you think your ad was mistakenly disapproved, please let us know.
Common Points of Confusion
To help you build a compliant and user-friendly ads experience we've highlighted some common areas of confusion.
Sexually Suggestive Content
2. The Ad Review Process
Before ads show up on Imeobi, they’re reviewed to make sure they meet our Advertising Policies. Typically most ads are reviewed within 24 hours, although in some cases it may take longer.
What We Consider
During the ad review process, we'll check your ad's images, text, targeting, and positioning, in addition to the content on your ad's landing page. Your ad may not be approved if the landing page content isn't fully functional, doesn't match the product/service promoted in your ad or doesn't fully comply with our Advertising Policies.
What Happens After an Ad is Reviewed?
After your ad is reviewed, you'll receive a notification letting you know if your ad is approved. If it’s approved, we'll start running your ad and you can see your results in the Ads Manager.
3. Steps to Take if Disapproved
Edit Your Ad
If your ad isn't approved for not fully complying with our policies, you can edit it and resubmit for review. To edit your ad:
Check the email address associated with your advertising account. If your ad doesn't get approved, we'll send you an email with details that explain why.
Using the information in your disapproval email, you can edit your ad and create a compliant one. Check this page for editing steps.
Save your edited changes. Once you save your changes, your ad will be resubmitted for review.
Appeal the Decision
If you can't edit your ad or feel it was a mistake that it wasn't approved, you can request a review of the decision in Account Quality.

Understanding Our Policies
Self-Serve Ad Terms: These terms apply when you use self-serve advertising interfaces to create, submit, or deliver advertising or other commercial or sponsored activity or content.
Self-Serve Ad Terms
The following terms (the “Self-Serve Advertising Terms” or “Self-Serve Ad Terms”) apply to your use of Imeobi Products (such as the self-service advertising interfaces and APIs) for creation, submission and/or delivery of any advertising or other commercial or sponsored activity or content (collectively, the “Self-Serve Ad Interfaces”) and any order you place through the Self-Serve Ad Interfaces (“Order”).
You can target your desired audience by buying ads to be delivered on Imeobi, our publisher network, or any place we serve ads.
When you place an Order, you will tell us the type of advertising you want to buy, the amount you want to spend, and your bid. If we accept your Order, we will deliver your ads as inventory becomes available. When serving your ad, we use best efforts to deliver the ads to the audience you specify or to achieve the outcome you select, though we cannot guarantee in every instance that your ad will reach its intended target or achieve the outcome you select.
Your ads must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and guidelines, as well as our Advertising Policies. Failure to comply may result in a variety of consequences, including the cancellation of ads you have placed and termination of your account.
We may reject or remove any ad for any reason.
You will pay for your Orders in accordance with the following:
You will comply with our Community Payments Terms to the extent applicable;
You will pay all amounts specified in each Order you place, along with any applicable taxes. The amount you owe for each Order will be calculated based on our tracking mechanisms.
By placing an Order, you authorize us to obtain your personal and/or business credit report from a credit bureau, either when you place an Order or at any time thereafter.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your advertising account, and you understand that you will be charged for any Orders placed on or through your advertising account.
If you are making direct debit payments, you agree that we can charge you any amount that falls within the range you agreed to upon signup. We will notify you in advance if any charge will exceed the agreed-upon range.
You can cancel an Order at any time, but your ads may run for 24 hours after you notify us, and you are still responsible for paying for all ads that run.
The amounts we charge you may be subject to and include applicable taxes and levies, including without limitation withholding taxes. You are responsible for bearing and remitting any taxes that apply to your transactions. You will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any claim arising out of your failure to do so.
If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may take additional steps to collect past due amounts. You will pay all expenses associated with such collection, including reasonable attorneys' fees. Past due amounts will accrue interest at 1% per month or the lawful maximum, whichever is less.
We may allow you to purchase ads with an “Advertiser Balance,” which is a pre-paid balance that can be used solely to purchase ads on Imeobi. Advertiser Balances are only for business or commercial purposes. Advertiser Balances are non-refundable except where required by law. Imeobi is not a bank and does not offer traditional banking services; accordingly, Advertiser Balances do not earn interest, are not deposit obligations, and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, or any other entity or insurance scheme, whether governmental or private.
You will fall under one of two categories depending on your payment method: invoiced or non-invoiced client. Invoiced clients are those to whom Imeobi extends a credit line and issues invoices on a periodic basis for payment in accordance with the applicable invoicing terms. Non-invoiced clients are those who make payments at the time of purchase itself. In its sole discretion, Imeobi may classify clients as invoiced clients based on factors such as ad spend and creditworthiness.
From time to time, we need to test improvements to our audiences and delivery systems, which could impact your advertising. Our testing is designed to improve the effectiveness of your advertising performance. We reserve the right to test when we believe it will be beneficial for advertiser performance.
We will determine the size, placement, and positioning of your ads.
Scheduling of delivery is subject to availability and may not be continuous.
We do not guarantee the reach or performance that your ads will receive, such as the number of people who will see your ads or the number of clicks your ads will get.
We cannot control how clicks are generated on your ads. We have systems that attempt to detect and filter certain click activity, but we are not responsible for click fraud, technological issues, or other potentially invalid click activity that may affect the cost of running ads.
Our license to deliver your ad will end when we have completed your Order. You understand, however, that:
Once displayed, ads are public information. Ads may be re-shared and accessed outside of the targeted audience (including from the IMeobi Page running the ads or within Imeobi Products). If users have interacted with your ad, your ad may remain on our Products (e.g., shared until the users delete it or visible to users through their account tools).
If your ad is a political ad, Imeobi may display (at no cost to you) and provide access to the ad content and creative, and information about the ad campaign (such as total spend and delivery data) for a period of seven (7) years from the completion of your order.
You consent that Imeobi may disclose your advertising content, and all information associated with your advertising, to a governmental entity or body if Imeobi believes that disclosure would assist in a lawful investigation.

Imeobi Platform Policy
1. Build a quality product
Develop your app with your personal account. Do not create a fake account to manage your app. If applicable, ensure that your Business Manager account is up to date and accurate.
Build an app that is stable and easily navigable. Be sure your app insights reflect a positive experience.
Ensure that your app’s content (including ads and user-generated content) meets our Community Standards.
Follow our Advertising Policies for your app name, icons, and description.
Keep your app or bot’s description and categorization up-to-date.
Don’t include promotional content in your app’s icon (ex: don’t overlay your icon image with “new”, “sale”, “update” or any type of notification jewel)
Don’t confuse, deceive, defraud, mislead, spam or surprise anyone.
Keep your app’s negative feedback below our thresholds.
Follow any instructions we include in our technical documentation.
Apps with minimal utility that provide predictions, assessments, or similar outputs to the user, may not be allowed on Platform. For example, apps that provide (or claim to provide) users with assessments of personality, personal attributes, character traits, behavioral tendencies, or whose core functionality otherwise involves making predictions about who the user is, may not be allowed.
2. Give people control
Obtain consent from people before publishing content on their behalf.
Use publishing permissions to help people share on Facebook, not to send people messages from your app.
Don’t prefill any content in captions, comments, messages or the user message parameter of posts unless (a) it is a single hashtag in a post shared through our Share Dialog (but not via our APIs), (b) it was created by the person using your app, or (c) it was created by a business whose employees use your app to administer the business’s presence on Imeobi.
Delete all of a person’s data you have received from us (including friend data) if that person asks you to, unless you are required to keep it by law, regulation, or separate agreement with us. You may keep aggregated data only if no information identifying a specific person could be inferred or created from it.
Obtain consent from people before using their data in any ad.
Obtain adequate consent from people before using any Imeobi technology that allows us to collect and process data about them, including for example, our SDKs and browser pixels. When you use such technology, provide an appropriate disclosure:
b. How users can opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting and where a user can access a mechanism for exercising such choice.
In jurisdictions that require informed consent for the storing and accessing of cookies or other information on an end user’s device (such as the European Union), ensure, in a verifiable manner, that an end user provides the necessary consent before you use Imeobi technologies that enable us to store and access cookies or other information on the end user’s device.
Obtain consent from people before you give us information that you independently collected from them.
Provide meaningful customer support for your app, and make it easy for people to contact you.
If people come to your app from the Imeobi app on iOS, give them an option to go back to the Imeobi app by using the Back to Imeobi banner provided in our SDK.
If people come to your app from the Imeobi app on Android, don’t prevent them from going back to Imeobi when they press the system back button.
3. Protect data
Protect the information you receive from us against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, don't use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance.
Only show data obtained from a user access token on the devices associated with that token.
Only use friend data (including friends list) in the person’s experience in your app.
If you cache data you receive from us, use it to improve your app’s user experience and keep it up to date.
Don’t proxy, request or collect Facebook usernames or passwords.
Keep private your secret key and access tokens. You can share them with an agent acting to operate your app if they sign a confidentiality agreement.
Don't use a service provider in connection with your use of Platform unless you make them sign a contract to: (a) protect any user data you obtained from us (that is at least as protective as our terms and policies), (b) limit their use of that user data solely to using it on your behalf to provide services to your app (and not for their own purposes or any other purposes), and (c) keep it secure and confidential. You must ensure they comply with our terms and policies (and are responsible for their non-compliance).
Keep Imeobi user IDs within your control. You can only share them with service providers who help you build or run your app. Ensure that they keep the user IDs secure and confidential and comply with our policies (ex: see, 3.7). If you need an anonymous unique identifier to share with service providers, use our mechanism.
Don't sell, license, or purchase any data obtained from us or our services.
Don't directly or indirectly transfer any data that you receive from us (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, data broker or other advertising or monetization-related service. By “indirectly” we mean you aren’t allowed to, for example, transfer data to a third party who then transfers the data to an ad network.
Don't put Imeobi data in a search engine or directory, or include web search functionality on Imeobi.
If you are acquired by or merge with a third party, you can continue to use our data only within your app.
If you use friend data from Imeobi to establish social connections in your app, only do so if each person in that connection has granted you access to that information.
Don't use data obtained from Imeobi to make decisions about eligibility, including whether to approve or reject an application or how much interest to charge on a loan.
If you implement or have previously implemented (on your own behalf or on behalf of a third party) any Imeobi Tools / Imeobi Business Tools (as defined in our standard terms for such Imeobi Tools /Imeobi Business Tools (“Imeobi Business Tools Terms”), you acknowledge that the Imeobi Business Tools Terms apply in connection with your usage of Platform, including for optimization of Platform and/or the related Imeobi Company Product.

You may not price an item differently based on a user’s electronic value Balance.
You may allow users to import your in-game virtual currency or items from your website or other platform that the user is connected to, but you must adhere to the following:

You may not utilize Imeobi Payments to sell virtual currency or other stored-value items that can be used outside of the app where the transaction was completed, and must not allow users to cash out, redeem, or otherwise receive anything of value in exchange for anything purchased using Imeobi Payments. In addition, you may not accept electronic value from a user in one app and then deliver or transfer the purchased item to the user in another app without our prior authorization.

. You may not offer any items, virtual currency, or services on or through Imeobi that require consent or other rights from any third party unless you have obtained all such rights.

Except with our prior authorization, you may not administer a promotion on Imeobi in which a user's purchase of in-game items or virtual currency contributes to or results in eligibility to win any prize of value. To request permission, please contact us and include an opinion letter from your legal counsel that explains why your game does not constitute gambling and instead is a lawful activity in all jurisdictions where the promotion is available to users.
Non-disclosure . You will not use or disclose any user’s payment information obtained from us for any purpose other than to complete the transaction for which the information was obtained.
Other terms apply . You may offer supplemental terms and conditions in conjunction with your sales; however they may not conflict with Imeobi terms or policies. You must comply with Imeobi’s Brand Asset Guidelines .
Developer Balance . Developers using Imeobi Payments will have a Developer Balance with Imeobi. Whenever you complete a sale on our platform, Imeobi will credit the proceeds from that sale, less our service fee, to your Developer Balance. Imeobi will earn a 10% service fee, plus any applicable sales tax or VAT, in connection with each Imeobi Payments transaction on our platform.
Nature of Service . Imeobi is not a bank and does not offer banking services. You will not earn interest on your Developer Balance. Developer Balances are not deposit obligations and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, or any other entity or insurance scheme, whether governmental or private. All Developer Balances are held and expressed in United States Dollars; if your transaction was in a different currency, proceeds from the sale will be converted at the time of the transaction according to the day’s published exchange rate before being credited to your Developer Balance.
Payout . We will redeem your Developer Balance according to the following rules:
We can redeem your Developer Balance only if we have your current banking information and any other information we need to make the payment on record, including, if required, identification and tax and business formation documentation. A list of our current payout methods is posted on our site .
We will make Developer Balance redemption payments only to the account entered by the developer in the Payout Information field of the Developer’s [Company Settings](/settings?tab=payments)
Imeobi will redeem your Developer Balance approximately 21 days following the end of the bimonthly period (either the 1st through 15th of the month or the 16th through the end of the month) in which the transaction occurred, except as otherwise set forth herein.
Developer Balances will be redeemed only in United States Dollars.
If a Developer Balance redemption payment for any given pay period would be less than One Hundred United States Dollars ($100.00), we will roll payment over to the next month, unless your account is being deactivated or deleted, or if it has been one year since either your last redemption payment or your first use of Imeobi Payments or Credits.
We may delay payout related to any investigation we are conducting, but in no case longer than 180 days after the transaction.
We may withhold from redemption any Developer Balance or portion thereof that was earned due to any breach of any Imeobi terms or policies by you, or that was transferred based on fraudulent or illegal transactions, or that was alleged by a user to have been transferred without his or her consent, or that resulted in returned, undelivered, rejected, or defective goods or services or transactions.
We may deduct from payout any amounts for which you are past due to Imeobi on any payment in connection with any Imeobi program.
If you owe Imeobi an amount exceeding your Developer Balance, we may charge or debit a payment instrument registered with your account to cover the amount owed. Your failure to pay fully any amounts owed to Imeobi on demand will be a violation of these Terms, and you will be liable not only for the amount collected but also for Imeobi’s costs associated with collection, including without limitation attorney fees, court costs, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
As further described in Section 3.9 of these Terms, it is your responsibility to remit all duties, taxes (including without limitation sales tax and VAT) and other fees that apply to your transactions, including the redemption of any Developer Balance. Imeobi complies with tax and legal informational reporting requirements in various jurisdictions.
Discrepancies . If Imeobi makes a redemption payment to you in error, you are liable for the full amount of that payout. You agree to reverse the payment associated with that redemption or to permit Imeobi to reverse the payment. You must provide written notification of any disputed payout within 30 days of receipt of the associated payment. Failure to do so constitutes a waiver by you of any claim relating to the payout.
Abandoned Property . If we are unable to pay you because you have not provided valid payment information or, where required, valid identification information, we may terminate your ability to maintain your Developer Balance to the extent permissible by law, and process any remaining Developer Balance in accordance with applicable law.

Payment credentials. For your convenience, we allow you to fund your transactions using a number of different sources, like credit cards and debit cards, Bank Transfer, and other payment methods.
Authority. When you provide a payment credential to us, you confirm that you are permitted to use that payment credential. When you fund a transaction, you authorize us (and our designated payment processor) to charge the full amount to the payment credential you designate for the transaction.

We may also use certain payment card updater services, whose availability varies by issuer, to ensure we have the most up-to-date information about payment credential we store.
Authorization. If you pay by credit or debit card, we may obtain a pre-approval from the issuer of the card for an amount, which may be as high as the full price of your payment. Your card will be charged at the time you initiate a payment, or shortly thereafter. If you cancel a transaction before completion, this pre-approval may result in those funds not otherwise being immediately available to you.
Failed payments. If your transaction results in an overdraft or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.
You may at some point encounter an app or feature that does not support the payment method you would prefer to use; however, you can select a different type of payment instrument (such as credit or debit card, or Google pay).
