Terms of Service
Last Updated: May 14, 2020
IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS OUR APPLICATION/WEBSITE OR PARTICIPATE IN OUR SERVICES.
1. Our legal relationship
We created the TVCO application (“Application”) and the website at tvco.app and associated webpages and subdomains (“Website”) in order to facilitate a community among viewers of events, television programs, and other content. Our Terms and Conditions of Service (the “Terms”) govern your access and use of our Application/Website and participation in our Services and apply to (i) casual visitors to our Website and (ii) individuals who download the Application and/or participate in the Services (“Registered Users”). For purposes of these Terms, the terms “Company,” “Some Whatever,” “TVCO,” “we,” “us,” and "our" refer to Some Whatever LLC doing business as (“d/b/a”) TVCO.
2. Your Account
2.1. Protecting Your Account. We may make the Application and certain areas of the Website accessible only to Registered Users. If we do so, we will treat anyone who is using your account as “you.” We will provide this user with all of the rights and privileges that we provide to you, and we will hold you responsible for the activities of any person using your account. Since we allow for signing up and logging in to your account through Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging on your mobile device, we recommend that you exercise precautions to safeguard your mobile device and your account information from unauthorized use or access by third-parties, and that you refrain from disclosing your mobile phone number and your account information to anyone who might “pretend” to be you with respect to the Website and your participation in the Services. We also ask that you notify us immediately if you suspect that someone is using your account in this or any inappropriate manner. We are not responsible or liable for any damage or loss related to any unauthorized access or use of your account.
2.2. Adopting a Username. You shall not adopt a username that impersonates or otherwise suggests some relationship or affiliation with another person or entity. We reserve the right to require changes to any username that violates this policy in our sole discretion.
2.3. Consent to receive SMS text messages. The registration process provides Registered Users with the ability to establish an account through Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging, which allows them to gain access to certain areas of the Website and Application that are accessible only to Registered Users. By becoming a Registered User, you consent to receiving a SMS text message from us as part of the registration process.
2.4. Age Eligibility. YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD TO USE OUR APPLICATION/WEBSITES AND SERVICES. The content on our Application is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY, and we do not permit anyone under the age of 18 (or the applicable age of majority in a user's jurisdiction) from downloading, registering, accessing, or otherwise using our Application and any related Services.
3. Ticketed Events
3.1. Events. As part of the Services TVCO may offer certain live and pre-recorded broadcasts and other content for purchase and consumption on the Website/Application (“Events”). If you purchase a ticket to an Event, you are purchasing a limited, non-transferable, revocable license to watch or otherwise participate in the Event. A ticket is not redeemable for cash. Events may include functionality such as the ability to comment in a live chat room or send virtual gifts and tips (“Additional Functionality”). TVCO may make available any or all Additional Functionality on some of its platforms (mobile and/or web) and not others. TVCO may introduce new Additional Functionality or discontinue any or all Additional Functionality in its sole and absolute discretion.
3.2. Event Providers. TVCO acts as an agent to those who provide these Events, such as artists, artist representatives, fan clubs, venues, and promoters ("Event Providers"). We generally sell tickets on behalf of these Event Providers, though in some instances we may organize or provide our own Events or own a small number of tickets as part of our relationship with an individual Event Provider. In all cases, we handle the transaction and payment collection for Events. Tickets obtained from unauthorized sources are immediately void and do not grant you a license to access or view the Event.
3.3. Purchasing a Ticket. When purchasing tickets, you will be required to provide your mobile phone number. We ask for your mobile phone number because Events are hosted by TVCO, which requires authentication via an SMS message. See Section 2 (Your Account) for more information. You will pay all charges incurred by you or any users of your account and credit card (or other applicable payment mechanism) at the price in effect when such charges are incurred (including any applicable taxes). Tickets purchased on our Website may be subject to a per ticket service fee and/or a per order processing fee. You may only use credit or debit cards that belong to you or to people who expressly authorize you to use such payment methods. If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect (whether because of an error in a price posted on the Website or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, or for any other reason), then we will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether the error occurred because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this Website or third-party vendor. We will not be liable for any other expenses that you, or anyone else, incurs in connection with errors of this nature. When purchasing tickets, please place an order using only one browser window. Looking up tickets using multiple browser windows could result in losing your tickets, errors occurring during the purchase process, or timer expiration on the purchase. All ticket prices for events that occur in the United States are stated in U.S. Dollars. If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm whether or not your order has been placed. It is possible that only you (not us) may be aware of problems that may occur during the purchase process. We will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation. If you have any questions about how to purchase an Event ticket or encounter any issues with a purchase, please review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or contact us at [email protected]
3.4. Delivery of Tickets. Tickets are assigned to you using your mobile phone number. To access the Event, log in to the TVCO Application using the same mobile phone number you used when purchasing a ticket. You may receive an SMS text message with a code, in which case you will be required to enter the code on the Application in order to access the Event. If you have any questions about how to access an Event, please review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or contact us at [email protected]
3.5. Refund Policy; Ejection. Before purchasing tickets, carefully review your Event. The purchase of an Event ticket is non-refundable and non-returnable except in our sole and absolute discretion. Occasionally, Events are canceled or postponed. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you to inform you of refund procedures for that Event ticket. If an Event is canceled, we will issue you a refund to the credit card, debit card, gift card or the method of payment used to make your purchase. You agree to comply with our Terms and all of the Event Providers' applicable rules, policies, terms and conditions as may be provided for each Event (“Event Provider Rules”). We and Event Providers reserve the right, without refund of any amount, to refuse admission to, or eject, any person whose conduct is deemed disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language, or who fails to comply with our Terms and the Event Provider Rules. Breach of our Terms or Event Provider Rules will terminate your license to attend the event without refund.
3.6. Recording; Likeness; Publicity Rights. You agree that the Event for which you purchase tickets is a public event, that your appearance and actions at the Event are public in nature, and that you have no expectation of privacy with regard to your actions or conduct at the Event. In addition to the rights you grant us throughout these Terms, you grant permission to us, the Event Provider(s), our partners, licensees and assigns, including but not limited to our brand and media partners, to utilize your name, image, likeness, acts, poses, plays, appearance, movements, and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the Event (regardless of whether before, during or after the broadcast or performance) for any purpose, in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to, you or anyone acting on your behalf.
3.7. Ticket Limit. When purchasing tickets, you may be limited to a specified number of tickets for each Event (“Ticket Limit"). This policy is in effect to discourage unfair ticket buying practices. Multiple accounts may not be used to circumvent or exceed published ticket limits. We reserve the right to cancel any or all orders and tickets, in addition to prohibiting your ticket purchase abilities, without notice to you, if you exceed or attempt to exceed, the posted Ticket Limit.
3.8. Unlawful Resale of Tickets; Promotions. Unlawful resale (or attempted resale), counterfeit or copy of tickets is grounds for seizure and cancellation without compensation. Certain maximum resale premiums and restrictions may apply in some states and we cannot be responsible for providing legal advice regarding resale or pricing of tickets. You are responsible for complying with all applicable ticket resale laws. In addition, we reserve the right to restrict or deny ticket purchasing privileges to anyone that we determine to be, or has been, in violation of our Terms. Tickets may not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written authorization is given by us. Any attempt to sell or transfer tickets, except as expressly permitted by us, will result in an automatic termination of your ticket license.
3.9. Account Accuracy. All information on accounts and orders must be valid. Orders that are placed, or attempted to be placed, using an account in which any information entered is found to be false, misleading, incorrect, incomplete or cannot be verified as belonging to the account holder, such as name, address, email address, phone number, IP address, or other, are subject to cancellation, at any time. Furthermore, we may cancel your order and sell your tickets to another customer without further notice. Orders are subject to credit card approval. You agree not to conceal, or attempt to conceal, your location via a VPN or other software.

8. Fan Points
8.1. Fan Points. Registered Users can buy TVCO Coins and use those TVCO Coins for the benefit of another Registered User (a "Broadcaster") by, for instance, boosting comments, co-hosting a live broadcast (guest star), and sending animations and other virtual gifts. Broadcasters earn points (“Fan Points”) every time a Registered User uses TVCO Coins for the benefit of such Broadcaster. The Broadcaster will then be able to convert Fan Points into United States Dollars (“USD”), or redeem Fan Points for USD, via PayPal. Fan Points are virtual tokens that are licensed to you. Each Fan Point is, in effect, a limited, non-exclusive, personal, royalty-free, non-transferable and non-assignable license of a virtual token through which the Application enables Broadcasters to monetize their experience using the Application in a manner permitted by our Terms.
8.2. PayPal. Subject to the other terms and conditions herein, Broadcasters may convert Fan Points into USD, or redeem Fan Points for USD, by selecting the “CASH OUT” option within the Application.

We do not promise that TVCO Coins will be reflected as any guaranteed number of Fan Points, or that Fan Points can be used to redeem any guaranteed sum of money, or any money at all. The coversion rate of Fan Points to USD will be determined by us, in our sole and absolute discretion, and the conversion rate is subject to change at any time. The amount of USD you will receive may be based in part on the type of virtual gifts you receive (whether they be animations, boosted comments, a guest star, or something else), the amounts of such gifts, and the popularity of your content, to be determined in our sole and absolute discretion.
8.4. Validity of Fan Points. Fan Points do not expire, but the Company may, in its sole discretion, extend or revise all, or revoke earned Fan Points in the event of fraudulent or illegal activity or other violation of the Terms. The Company may, in its sole discretion, elect to cancel the Fan Points program. If, however, you have a balance of Fan Points and the Company elects to cancel the Fan Points program or you terminate your use of the Application, the Company may, in its sole discretion, permit you to cash out any Fan Points remaining in your account. The Company is the final authority on your qualification for Fan Points and reserves the right to deduct Fan Points from your account at any time if Fan Points were credited in error. The Company reserves the right to deactivate or terminate your TVCO account under the following circumstances:

8.6. All Fan Points of a Registered User will expire automatically upon deletion or termination of such User’s account for any reason.
8.7. FAN POINTS ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
