Terms & Conditions / User Agreement


Effective Date: June 07, 2021
Last Modified: June 08, 2021
Sites Covered: https://X4Tube.com/


Introduction

Welcome to Our Site’s User Agreement (hereinafter “Agreement” or “Terms and Conditions.”) The provisions of this Agreement will govern Your use of Our Site(s) and the Services contained therein. You should therefore take some time to read the Agreement carefully. Our Site is different from many other websites on the Internet as it contains advertisements, communications, and links posted by independent third parties, over which We exert no control and with which there is not necessarily any direct association. We do not get involved in any disputes that may develop between Our advertisers and others, and We do not facilitate communication between third parties. Therefore, You are urged to use Your own good judgment and common sense when responding to such advertisements, as We are not responsible for any interactions occurring between Our Users and Our advertisers. Federal law protects sites like Ours from civil claims, so We encourage You to independently research any information found in Our advertisements, before making any decisions. We hope that You thoroughly enjoy Our services, and anticipate that You will find Our Site useful and informative. Should You have any questions or comments regarding Our Site, or its policies, please feel free to contact Us via help@X4Tube.com. The laws of Your individual city, county, state, province or nation may regulate the activity discussed or promoted by the Site, or by third parties communicating on the Site. Check Your local laws before taking part in any such activities.

2.2.3 Community User – Upon completing the Registration, You may choose to become a Community User by submitting a photographic image containing Your face and handwritten text of Your username and “X4Tube.com.” This option is available to all Users and is offered for the sole purpose to allow Users to verify their identity. However, should the Site verify the identity of a particular User, this verification does not reflect or have any bearing on such User’s reputation. Verified Users are in no way endorsed by the Site or its agents and have not been subjected to any form of a screening process except as described above in this provision. Therefore, We specifically disclaim any and all liability associated with any communication, both online or offline, with a Verified User.

The Site is not responsible for the activities of any third party or the content of any third party site, including a third party’s use of cookies or any other information (such as IP address, browser type or operating system) collected when You click through links on the Site to their sites or view advertisements. Links to such third party sites are not to be taken as an endorsement by the Site of the third party site or any products promoted, offered or sold on the third party site, or as an indication that such sites are free from computer viruses or anything else that has destructive properties.

No waiver of any term of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and the Site's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The Site reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time and without notice, and it is Your responsibility to review these Terms and Conditions for any changes. Your use of the Site following any amendment of these Terms and Conditions will signify Your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms.

 No waiver or action made by Us shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent default of the same provision of this Agreement.
