These TOS constitute a binding agreement between HIPA and you governing your use of HIPA. By using HIPA, you agree to be bound by all of the TOS, regardless of whether you use HIPA to post any of your own content or to view content posted by other people including the Company.
HIPA reserves the right, at our sole and absolute discretion, to modify these TOS at any time. Your continued use of HIPA after HIPA modifies the TOS will mean you agree to the TOS as modified. If you do not agree to any modification, you should stop using or accessing HIPA immediately. It is your responsibility to return to this page on a regular basis to view any updates or modifications to the TOS.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS WHICH INCLUDE VARIOUS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, AND A DISPUTE RESOLUTION CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS HOW DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED.
People who register at www.HIPA.Life for the HIPA Service become “Members”.
We are not an internet service provider; in order to use the HIPA Service, you must have internet access and all the necessary hardware, software (and skills) required for email and web usage.
Where prohibited, membership to the Service is considered void. To be eligible for membership registration, access and usage of Services on this Site, you must be 18 or older and that you agree to and to abide by all of these TOS; otherwise any such membership registration, access and usage of Services on this Site is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these TOS and may be terminated by the Company at any time upon discovery of unauthorized or unlicensed use. Anyone below the age of 18 seeking to book a session with a Provider must get their parent or guardian to register and book on their behalf. It is the responsibility of parents / guardians to keep their children safe when they are online.
You must register and confirm your membership registration prior to using any of the services on the Site. You undertake to register for the HIPA Service using accurate and current information about yourself – including your correct name, email address and any other mandatory details.
During registration, you may select your preferred and unique ‘Username’ which will be associated with your HIPA membership. This Username can be used as a method of directly linking to your profile and for any other uses which we may make available for Usernames. We maintain a reserved list of keywords which may not be used as HIPA Usernames. This list is updated from time to time, and accordingly we reserve the right to revoke the use of a Username previously selected by a member if we feel the Username is inappropriate, or that it is a special keyword which is required for other business uses, or for other reasons; we are under no obligation to disclose to you our reasons for revoking your use of a specific Username.
During registration, you may also indicate your preferred login password. You are obliged to keep this password secret. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and you will hold HIPA harmless for any damage arising from a third party accessing HIPA using a password you disclosed. HIPA shall not disclose the password to any third party and HIPA shall not ask for your password at any time.
By completing the registration process, you consent to enter the agreement to use the services of the Site. HIPA accepts this offer by activating the membership for the use of services on the Site. The agreement takes effect with the aforementioned acceptance by HIPA.
Each User is entitled to register with HIPA only once, and the User may only establish one (1) user profile. You may not register for a User account on behalf of an individual other than yourself, or register for a User account on behalf of any group or entity unless you are duly authorized to do so.
You may not use or attempt to use another’s account, service or system without authorization from the Company, or to create a false identity on the Service or the Site.
It is technically impossible for HIPA to determine with absolute certainty whether a particular user registered with HIPA is in fact the person he or she represents to be. Therefore, HIPA assumes no liability for the actual identity of a user. Each user is solely responsible for checking the actual identity of another user.

You agree that HIPA will not be liable or be held liable, under any circumstances whatsoever and in any way, for any errors or omissions, loss or damage of any kind whatsoever that may have been incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted or otherwise transmitted via HIPA, and you hereby release absolutely and without reservation HIPA and its directors, officers, shareholders and employees therefrom.

HIPA reserves the right to preserve and disclose Content posted to or transmitted via HIPA if reasonably necessary in order to:

You agree not to use or launch any automated system or scripts, including but not limited to any “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers”, that access the HIPA Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the HIPA Service’s web and database servers in a given period of time than a real human user can reasonably produce in that period by using a conventional web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, HIPA grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the Site for the sole purpose of creating publicly-available and searchable indices of the Content, but not caches or archives of such Content. HIPA reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases at its sole and absolute discretion.
7. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
The content of the HIPA Service, except all User Submissions (as defined in point 8. below), interactive features and the like (together the “Content”) and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein (together the “Marks”) and all copyright subsisting therein, are owned by or licensed to HIPA, and are protected by Malaysian and foreign laws and international conventions. With the exception of specific User Submissions made by you personally, as between you and HIPA all intellectual property rights subsisting in and in relation to User Submissions (including, without limitation, compilations of User Submissions) are owned by HIPA. You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security related features of the HIPA Service or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any Content.
8. USER SUBMISSIONS

You retain full ownership of all of your Content and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with your Content.
By publishing your Content on HIPA, you grant HIPA a temporary license to “rebroadcast” your Content. This license is necessary to enable us to show your Content to other members and visitors to the Site.
By publishing Content in your workspace on the Site you grant HIPA a world-wide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub licensable and non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid license to reproduce, modify, distribute, transmit, publicly perform and publicly display the Content (as well as permit others – including without limitation HIPA’s co-brand, content and syndication partners – to do the same) reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise.
This license exists only for as long as the Content remains published in your workspace on the Site and only for as long you remain a HIPA member, except that you grant HIPA a continuing perpetual license and right to maintain a copy of your profile and Content for archival purposes. This archival copy is not posted publicly on the HIPA system; it is maintained solely so that HIPA may recover content and restore accounts (in case of errors or system failure) or required for cooperation with law enforcement in order to make the HIPA service safer. Except for this license for archival purposes, in the event that you remove the Content from your workspace on the Site or in the event that your membership is terminated, this license shall expire either immediately or upon termination of any promotional or marketing activities ongoing at the time.
9. RESPONSIBILITY FOR USER CONTENT AND ANY OTHER DATA OR INFORMATION
HIPA does not make any warranties or representations regarding any data and/or information provided or made available by any user on the Site or on any external websites linked to them.

The User may report any activities of any other user which violate applicable laws and/or any of the terms and conditions of these TOS by using the contact form available at the Site.
10. DATA TRANSMISSION SECURITY
You acknowledge that HIPA has no control over the communications infrastructure or the communications lines used to access HIPA because these are provided for by a third party public utility and, as such, the security of transmissions to and from HIPA is not the responsibility of HIPA.
HIPA recognizes that any data provided by the User to HIPA is extremely important to the User, and HIPA shall therefore be reasonable and sensitive in handling such data. HIPA shall comply with all applicable legal provisions regarding data protection (Malaysian Data Protection Laws, European Data Protection Directives and any other applicable data protection legislation). In particular, HIPA shall not provide or otherwise disclose any personal data of the User to any third party without permission except when asked to assist and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in their investigations.
No Site Content may be modified, copied, distributed, framed, reproduced, republished, downloaded, scraped, displayed, posted, transmitted, or sold in any form or by any means, in whole or in part, without the Company’s prior written permission, except that the foregoing does not apply to your own Content that you have legally posted on the Site. Provided that you are eligible, you are granted a limited license to access and use the Site and the Site Content and to download or print a copy of any portion of the Site Content to which you have properly gained access solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided that you keep all copyright or other proprietary notices and uses intact. Except for your own Content, you may not upload or republish Site Content on any Internet, Intranet or Extranet site to incorporate the information in any other database or compilation, and any other use of the Site Content is strictly prohibited. Such license is subject to these TOS and does not permit the use of any data mining, robots, scraping or similar data gathering techniques or extraction methods. Any use of the Site or the Site Content other than as specifically authorized herein, without the prior written permission of Company, is strictly prohibited and in violation of these TOS and can and will terminate the license granted herein.

This license is revocable at any time without notice and with or without cause.
12. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
HIPA fully respects and is fully committed to protecting the intellectual property rights of third parties; as such, you are prohibited to post, modify, distribute, or reproduce in any way any copyrighted content, belonging to others without first obtaining their written consent. If you believe that someone has copied your work and posted it on HIPA in a way that constitutes a copyright infringement, please read the section on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) for more information on how to report infringement of your copyright.
Upon receiving proper notice of copyright infringement HIPA will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and notify the site owner accordingly. HIPA may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, terminate the accounts of Users who may be repeat infringers.
HIPA reserves the right to terminate your use of HIPA at any time and remove any infringing Content if you infringe the copyright rights of others, regardless of whether or not you are a repeat infringer.
HIPA, HIPA.Life, and other Company graphics, logos, designs, page headers, buttons, icons, scripts and service names are registered trademarks, trademarks or trade dress of the Company in Malaysia and/or other countries. The Company’s marks may not be used, including as part of trademarks and/or as part of domain names, in connection with any product or service that is not the Company’s, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or in any manner whatsoever that disparages or discredits the Company.

In particular, you should be aware that HIPA does not generally pre-screen or monitor content contributed by Members (such as User Submissions).
16. ADDITIONAL SERVICES
HIPA or its affiliates may offer new or additional services through the HIPA Service from time to time. Your use of any such services may be subject to additional terms and conditions, or rules of use, which you must comply with, and potentially additional fees (which you must pay). Any failure by you to comply with a material provision of the terms or rules governing those services, or to pay any relevant additional fees, will be considered as a violation of the TOS and in breach of this Agreement.
17. OPERATION OF HIPA SERVICES
HIPA reserves the right to withdraw or modify one or more aspects of the HIPA Service where we have legal or technical reasons to do so (including technical difficulties experienced by HIPA internally or on the Internet in general). There may be times when the HIPA Service becomes unavailable for various reasons, whether on (i) an unscheduled basis, because of technical problems (in which case we will use reasonable skill and care to overcome the problems we encounter, where they are within our control); or ii) a scheduled basis (which we will make every effort to conduct at times that are reasonably convenient to the majority of the Membership, in our reasonable discretion). For security or any other reasons, we may at times require you to change your Username and/or Password or other information which facilitates access to the HIPA Service.
18. MISUSE OF HIPA SERVICES AND TERMINATION OF MEMBERSHIP
HIPA reserves the right (i) to suspend or terminate any Member’s access to the HIPA Service, in whole or in part, and/or (ii) to remove at will, or require the Member to remove, any Content posted on the HIPA Service, if the respective Member or Content is deemed to be in breach of any provision of this Agreement. Any Member whose access has been suspended or terminated are prohibited from re-registering for, or re-accessing, the HIPA Service without our prior consent. However, there may be times when determined users whose Membership has been terminated or suspended re-register as Members, in breach of their obligations under this Agreement; we cannot prevent that. You are, at all times, responsible for everything which is done on or through the HIPA Service while your Membership account is logged on to the HIPA Service, or through your email address(es).
HIPA and the Community work together to keep the Site and Services working properly and to keep the Community safe. If you see anything on the HIPA Service which appears to be a violation or in breach of this Agreement, then please contact us to inform us of it by emailing us. We do not generally monitor material contributed by Members placed on the HIPA Service, and we are thus reliant upon users to alert us of any Content which is in breach of this Agreement. You agree that upon termination or suspension of your access to the HIPA Service under any provision of this Agreement, we may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your HIPA Service account and/or bar any further access to such files or the HIPA Service.
Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to the Site, delay or remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep Users off the Site if we deem that they are being a nuisance by creating problems with possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies and this TOS. We also reserve the right to cancel and delete unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time which timing shall be at the sole and absolute discretion of the Company.
19. USER ACCOUNT
Every registered member on HIPA.Life has a personal account that tracks all transactions and earnings in USD. The balance of this account MUST match the full audit trial that can be verified. In the event that a User’s Account Balance has been attained fraudulently by whatever means, the account will be suspended and withdrawals will not be allowed. Any fraudulent activities associated with any user account will be suspended immediately and reported to the authorities. Transfer of account balance between user accounts is strictly prohibited.

The laws of Malaysia will govern the Terms of Service and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and the Company or any of our affiliates, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. The HIPA Service is controlled and offered by HIPA from its legal jurisdiction in Malaysia. HIPA makes no representations that the HIPA Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the HIPA Service from other jurisdictions do so of their own preference and are responsible for compliance with local law.
