Greetings! This is V LIVE.

1. Welcome to V LIVE!
We would like to provide you with basic information on the use of our services that you need or want to know about through the V LIVE Terms of Use (hereinafter referred to as the “Terms”). The Terms describe the rights, meanings, responsibilities, and other matters between WEVERSE COMPANY Inc. (hereinafter referred to as the “Company”) and members (hereinafter referred to as “members” or “you”), and the Company posts the Terms within its service for your easy access. The Company is committed to continuously providing reliable services and hope to bring our service closer to you through the Terms provided.

2. The definitions and interpretations used in the Terms are as follows, and the Terms are revised after prior notice.
The "service" refers to all V LIVE and V LIVE related services that can be used regardless of devices (including various wired and wireless devices such as PCs, TVs, and portable devices). "You" refers to customers who sign a user agreement with the Company and use the service provided by the Company. "Content" refers to informational texts, photos, videos, and various types of files and links including codes, characters, audio, sounds, images, and videos that you posted on the service while using the service.
In addition, the Company posts the Terms on a link or a linked page within the service so that you can easily see them and may revise the Terms to the extent that they do not violate the relevant laws. When the Company revises the Terms, the reason for the revision and the date of application will be specified and announced within the service for at least seven days along with the current Terms. However, if a change in the Terms is unfavorable to you, we not only notify you of the change within the service for a certain period but also notify you individually by electronic means such as email.
If you did not explicitly reject the details of the revised Terms announced by the Company, the Company considered it as your consent to the revised Terms as you did not explicitly express rejection although the Company had announced or notified that no explicit rejection is deemed your consent to the revised Terms. Without your consent to the application of the revised Terms, the Company cannot apply the details of the revised Terms, and in this case, you can terminate the user agreement. However, if there are special circumstances in which the existing Terms cannot be applied, the Company may terminate the user agreement with you. Even if a part of the Terms is determined to be inapplicable, the rest will remain in effect.

3. The Terms and Community Guide complement each other.
The Company may have separate individual service terms or Community Guide. For matters or interpretations not specified in the Terms, separate Community Guide, related laws, or commercial practices will apply.

The following are the rights you have on V LIVE.

4. You can become a member of V LIVE, modify your information, or request for service termination at any time.
The user agreement is concluded when the person who wants to become a member (hereinafter the “applicant”) agrees to the details of the Terms and applies for membership, and the Company approves the application. In principle, the Company approves the service use upon the application of an applicant. The applicant becomes a member from the time the user agreement is concluded upon the Company's approval and can freely use the service under the Terms. However, the Company may not approve the following cases or terminate the user agreement afterward. The first is a case in which the applicant previously lost his or her membership status under the Terms, but a case if the person received approval for re-application for membership is an exception. The second is a case when an applicant entered false information or did not enter the information required by the Company. The third is a case in which approval is not possible due to reasons attributable to the applicant, or the application was made in violation of related rules. Fourth, users under the age of 14 are not eligible to sign up for VLIVE and VLIVE-related services. In addition, if the Company lacks sufficient service-related equipment, or if there is a technical or business problem, approval may be withheld.
In the event that the Company does not approve or reserves the membership application for the above reasons, the Company, in principle, will notify the applicant of this. The user agreement is concluded when the Company marks the completion of an application in the application process. The Company may grant you an activity level by classifying the members by level according to the service policy to differentiate usage by subdividing the time of use, the number of use, and the service menu, etc.
In addition, you can view and modify your personal information at any time through the settings in the service, and if there is a change in the information entered at the time of application, you must modify your profile to notify the change. The Company is not responsible for any disadvantages caused by you not notifying the Company of changes in your information.
Finally, you can request for termination of the user agreement at any time via the account deletion page in the service, and the Company will process your request immediately under the relevant laws and regulations. If you terminate the agreement, all of your data will be destroyed immediately upon termination, except when the Company shall retain member information in accordance with relevant laws and privacy policies, and the destroyed data cannot be recovered.
If you terminate the agreement, any items uploaded to your account that can identify you, such as the profile picture, will be deleted. However, posts that are reposted or uploaded on public bulletin boards are not deleted as they are shared or scrapped by others, so please delete posts that you can delete before withdrawing your membership.

At the same time, there are rules that you must follow on V LIVE.

The operator of each channel can set the level and authority for members based on their activity, payment for premium services, or according to their internal policies. Depending on the level and authority set for the members, there may be differences in content and bulletin boards that members can access, and this standard is entirely up to the settings of the channel's operation team.

7. Unfortunately, you may be restricted from using the service
The Company promises to value your content that contains a variety of information and opinions but does not check and manage all content. If your content violates the relevant laws, the Terms, and Community Guide, it may be blinded, deleted, or unregistered.
If the content you created during your service activities contains information that violates the relevant laws, the right holder may request the suspension of posting of the content in accordance with the procedures set by the relevant laws, and the Company handles them under the relevant laws. Even if there is no request from the right holder, if there is a reason for the infringement of the right to be recognized, or if it violates the Company's policy and relevant laws, a temporary measure or deletion/restriction of access to the content may be taken under the relevant laws.
The Company may restrict the use of the service in the form of warning, temporary suspension, or permanent suspension if you violated the obligations of the Terms or interfered with the normal operation of the service. However, in the case of providing an illegal program and interfering with operations, illegal communications and hacking, distribution of malicious programs, exceeding authorized access, and mechanical activities, the Company may immediately impose a permanent suspension for any activity that bypasses the Company's technical measures to prevent abuse of the service, such as abnormal service use or attempting a method prohibited by the service. When you are permanently suspended, all benefits obtained through the use of the service will also lapse, for which the Company does not compensate. Details and procedures related to usage restrictions are determined in Community Guide.
If your service use is restricted or the user agreement is terminated, the Company will notify you according to the notification method set forth in [2.] above, and at this time, you may file an objection according to the procedure set by the Company.
