Network Creators and their designated administrators have access to both the Network Member Data uploaded or collected on their Social Network(s) and the Kcancer Member Data.
3. Premium Services and Payment
There are two primary ways that we support the Kcancer Platform: through advertising and Premium Services. As a Network Creator, you can purchase one or more Premium Services from us. The categories and prices of our Premium Services are described here and are subject to change from time to time (“Premium Services Policies”). Kcancer may choose to temporarily change the fees for the Premium Services for promotional or new services, and such changes are immediately effective when Kcancer posts the temporary promotional event or new service on the Kcancer Platform. Any changes to fees for Premium Services that are not temporary or promotional will be effective thirty (30) days after we provide you with notice by posting such changes on the Kcancer Platform. The changes shall only apply prospectively to the Premium Services you’ve purchased. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars.
You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with the Premium Services in a timely manner with a valid payment method. You authorize Kcancer to charge your credit card, charge card, debit card, PayPal, or financial institution account (herein “Payment Method”) for all charges to your accounts with Kcancer. Your Payment Method will be charged the current fee for the Premium Service you choose on the date that you click on the “Purchase” button in the ordering process. Today, we only offer recurring payments. You agree that Kcancer may automatically charge the fee to your Payment Method at the beginKcancer of each recurring period. For example, if you choose a Premium Service with a monthly plan, you will be billed every month on the anniversary date of the date you clicked the “Purchase” button. Additionally, we may offer a pre-pay payment option for payment of Premium Services (“Pre-Payment Plan”). If you opt for Pre-Payment plan, your Payment Method will be charged the then-current fee for that Premium Service at the commencement of each renewal period.
You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to Kcancer may be shared by Kcancer with companies who work on Kcancer’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purpose of checking credit, effecting payment to Kcancer and servicing your account. The terms of your payment will be based on your chosen Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution providing such Payment Method. You agree to pay Kcancer all charges incurred under your account for any Premium Service in which you or anyone else who uses your account (including children, family and friends) enroll in accordance with this Agreement and any applicable Premium Services policies. If your Payment Method fails or your account is past due, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your account upon demand, (b) Kcancer may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms (this includes charging other payment methods on file with us) and (c) Kcancer reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your Premium Services or your account with Kcancer, including deletion of your Social Network from the Kcancer Platform.
Except as may be set forth in applicable Premium Service Policies or Section 27 (Termination), any fees charged to your account are non-refundable. You agree to submit any disputes regarding any charge to your account in writing to Kcancer within sixty (60) days of such charge, otherwise such dispute will be waived and such charge will be final and not subject to challenge. Refunds (if any) made pursuant to such dispute, are at the discretion of Kcancer.
You are responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your use of the Kcancer Platform, including, but not limited to, sales, use, or value added taxes.

Generally, Kcancer will consider a Member a repeat infringer if it has received more than two third-party notices of alleged infringement concerKcancer Content or Network Code posted by that Member anywhere on the Kcancer Platform. Kcancer, however, reserves the right to identify and terminate Members under any circumstances it deems appropriate, including after only a single instance of allegedly infringing behavior by that Member. Additionally, if a Network Creator continues to allow its Network Member’s to post Content that is subject to notices of alleged copyright infringement, the Network may (at Kcancer’s sole discretion) be disabled.
Additionally, if you are a Network Creator, you agree to: promptly (and in any event in no more than 24 hours) address (including removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing content for valid DMCA take down notices) any copyright owner’s written notice (including any notices forwarded to you by Kcancer) that specified Content or Network Code posted on Your Social Network infringes that third-party’s rights (including copyrights), provided that the notice substantially complies with the requirements in the DMCA. If you receive a counter-notice from the applicable Member that substantially complies with the requirements of the DMCA instructing you to replace the allegedly infringing Content or Network Code, you agree to replace or cease disabling access to the Content or Network Code not less than ten (10) and no more than fourteen (14) days after receiving the counter notice, provided that the complaiKcancer party has not notified you that it has filed an action against the Member regarding the alleged infringement. You also agree to forward a copy of the counter notice to Kcancer. Kcancer strongly recommends that you consult with a legal professional to confirm your obligations under the DMCA. Kcancer is not providing legal advice to you and nothing in this Agreement is legal advice nor guarantees your compliance with applicable law or regulation. You are solely responsible and liable for complying with all applicable laws, including copyright and privacy laws in connection with Your Social Network.
18. Network Member Data
You must clearly communicate on Your Social Network that Your Social Network uses Kcancer ID authentication (including, on each page on Your Social Network on which information is collected for purposes of Kcancer ID authentication) and that each of Your Network Members will be sharing the data they provide to you with Kcancer. This is for clarity and to ensure Your Network Members are aware of this relationship.
You acknowledge that Kcancer may receive requests from Users or persons authorized to act on behalf of such Users to modify or delete personally identifiable information relating to such Users on Your Social Network. Accordingly, you agree that, within 24 hours of any email request by Kcancer, you will: (a) delete all Network Member Data and other personally identifiable information in your possession or control relating to a particular User as specified by Kcancer; and (b) confirm such deletion in email notice to Kcancer.
Kcancer is not required to keep back-up copies of Network Member Data on the Kcancer Platform once the Social Network or Network Member Data is deleted. Kcancer makes no guarantee that Network Member Data will be safely stored on the Kcancer Platform. To be safe, you should independently back-up Network Member Data.
19. Your Social Network
To enable a great experience for all Users on the Kcancer Platform, if you are a Network Creator, you agree to ensure each Social Network you create or manage does not degrade the performance of the Kcancer Platform. If your Social Network(s) exceed the quotas and limitations set by Kcancer (e.g., storage or bandwidth) as set forth in the Kcancer Platform Policies or otherwise degrades performance of the Kcancer Platform or other services in any way, we may suspend your Social Network(s) at our sole discretion and without notice.
You agree not to harvest any email addresses from Social Networks or the Kcancer Platform for the purpose of sending email in violation of applicable law or otherwise violate the “Acceptable Use and Conduct” provisions of this Agreement.
You also agree not to knowingly collect any information from, or develop any Social Networks that are targeted at children under the age of 13.
You acknowledge that Kcancer may terminate the account of any Member (including Your Social Network Members) in accordance with these Terms of Service.
Your Social Network shall not be designed or implemented in a way that, as determined by Kcancer in its sole discretion, might mislead a User into believing that: (i) he or she is interacting directly with Kcancer when interacting with Your Social Network, or (ii) any of Your Social Network was created by or are endorsed by Kcancer. Because we want you to have as much freedom over your Social Network as possible, Kcancer takes no responsibility for any Content located in Your Social Network and Kcancer has no obligation to monitor such Content or Your Social Network.
