Governing Law

For the US Residents

These Terms of Use by HookupGeek shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

HookupGeek’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use will remain in effect. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between HookupGeek regarding HookupGeek’s Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements HookupGeek  might have between us regarding the Service.

In addition, the activities of HookupGeek, as one part, and the users/readers/visitors, as another part, are to be based on the following legal regulations and laws applicable throughout the USA, namely,

    1. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA):
      • Section 104 of the Copyright Act “establishes the conditions of eligibility for protection under U.S. law for works from other countries under the treaties by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), including the WIPO Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (to secure any other except written information such as including YouTube video channel but not limited to).”
      • Section 102(b) of the DMCA “amends section 104 of the Copyright Act and adds new definitions to section 101 of the Copyright Act in order to extend the protection of U.S. law to those works required to be protected under the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT).”
      • Section 512(b) of the DMCA “limits the liability of service providers for the practice of retaining copies, for a limited time, of material that has been made available online by a person other than the provider, and then transmitted to a subscriber at his or her direction. The service provider retains the material so that subsequent requests for the same material can be fulfilled by transmitting the retained copy, rather than retrieving the material from the original source on the network.”
      • Section 512(d) of the DMCA “relates to hyperlinks, online directories, search engines and the like. It limits liability for the acts of referring or linking users to a site that contains infringing material by using such information location tools.”
    2. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (“COPPA”) 15 U.S.C. 6501-6508 makes it necessary to:
      • notify parents of their information practices;
      • provide parents access to their child’s personal information;
      • obtain verifiable parental consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of children’s personal information;
      • let parents prevent further maintenance or use or future collection of their child’s personal information;
      • not require a child to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity;
      • maintain reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information; and
      • prevent children under 18 years old from visiting the website by HookupGeek (which goes in compliance with Child Online Protection Act).
    3. Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), also known as a Synthetic PPA, or Contract for Differences (without, along with all or one of the following Connecticut General Statute § 53-450, Maryland Code Article 27 § 583, Michigan Law § 445.1712):
      • responsibility of illegal usage of HookupGeek’s exclusive Youtube Video or the whole YouTube channel by HookupGeek;
      • the VPPA does not preempt state law. That is, states are free to enact broader protections for individuals’ records.
    4. First Amendment to US Contitution that governs the legality of any adult content.

In compliance with FOSTA/SESTA, HookupGeek.com has never and will never be involved in any affairs related directly or indirectly to human trafficking and terrorism. We do not tolerate any negative social phenomena harming human life.

HookupGeek does not conduct any commercial activity (including promotion and sale of adult content, sex toys, and any other form of adult industry manifestation).

Changes To These Terms of Use

HookupGeek exclusively reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms of Use at any time. If a revision is material, HookupGeek will not try to provide any period notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service exclusively provided by HookupGeek, including the current terms of Use of the Service and Privacy policies elaborated by HookupGeek and based on the current legislation, legal norms and regulations, and laws.

Miscellaneous

You may not use and/or export and/or re-export any Content and/or any copy and/or adaptation of such Content, or any product or service offered on the Site both now and in the future, in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including without limitation United States export laws and regulations.

If any of the provisions of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and HookupGeek with regard to your use of the Site, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and HookupGeek with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled. Other than as provided in a purchase agreement you enter into with HookupGeek, HookupGeek  will not accept any counter-offers to these Terms of Use, and all such offers are hereby categorically rejected. HookupGeek’s failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver by HookupGeek of any provision or any right it has to enforce these Terms of Use, nor shall any course of conduct between HookupGeek and you or any other party be deemed to modify any provision of these Terms of Use. The current HookupGeek’s Terms of Use shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.
