Terms of Service  

Last Updated: January 28, 2021

Welcome to League of Nova!

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a binding legal agreement between you and League of Nova that govern your use of League of Nova’s website and services, located at http://leagueofnova.com (the “Platform”). When used in these Terms, “League of Nova”, “we”, “us”, or “our” refers to League of Nova Pte. Ltd. Please read this carefully together with our Privacy Policy and Community Guidelines. By accessing this website, we assume you accept these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with these Terms, you should not use the Platform. 

League of Nova provides a platform for Fans to connect with their favourite Personalities, online and offline. In general, both Personalities and Fans are referred to as Members (“Members”) who form our vibrant community. Personalities (“Personalities”) are members who use the platform to share their interests, passions or talents, create meetings to connect with fans, and grow their communities. Fans (“Fans”) are members who use the platform to discover and connect with their favourite Personalities. 

You must be at least 18 years old and register an account to access and use many features of the League of Nova Platform. League of Nova does not control, offer or manage any meetings. League of Nova is not a party to the contracts concluded directly between Personalities and Fans. League of Nova is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member.

Fan Terms

1. Our Mission.

League of Nova is reinventing the way we connect with social media personalities. We believe in the value of authentic conversations beyond likes and follows. From skilful dancers to talented home-bakers to avid photographers, discover and connect with your favourite Personalities, online and offline. 

2. Searching and Submitting Meeting Request on League of Nova.

2.1 Searching. You can search for meetings by using the Explore page. Meetings are arranged in a chronological order, based on the meeting datetime. 

2.2 Submitting Meeting Request. When you submit a meeting request, you are agreeing to all the meeting terms that you have specified in your request. These include meeting date, time, location and contribution amount. The contribution amount is denoted in our virtual credits (“Rubies”). The conversion of the Rubies to Singapore Dollar will be displayed at the point of meeting request. You will be charged the contribution amount when the Personality accepts your request (see Payments in Section 11). 

2.3 Confirmed Meetings. When you receive the meeting confirmation, a contract for the Meeting is formed between you and the Personality.

3. Cancellations, Refunds and Meeting Modifications. 

3.1 Cancellations and Refunds. As a fan, if you cancel up to 5 hours prior to the start of the Meeting, 50% of the contribution amount will be charged. If you cancel within 5 hours of start time, the full contribution amount will be charged. If the Personality cancels, you will be eligible for a full refund.

3.2 Meeting Changes. You can use the platform’s chat or call feature to communicate with the Personality who has accepted your meeting request. Any changes to the initial meeting terms need to be mutually agreed upon between you and the Personality. For example, you may not allow any person to join the meeting unless they are agreed by the Personality. 

4. Your Responsibilities and Assumption of Risk.

4.1 Your Responsibilities. You are responsible and liable for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you invite to join the Meeting. This means you must act with integrity, treat others with respect, and comply with applicable laws at all times. 

4.2 Your Assumption of Risk. You acknowledge that many activities carry inherent risks and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the League of Nova Platform and any Content (as defined in Section 10), including your participation in any Meeting, or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online. 

Personality Terms

5. Creating and Hosting Meetings on League of Nova. 

5.1 Personality. As a Personality, League of Nova offers you the opportunity to express yourself in a creative way, meet fans, grow your community - and earn while sharing your passion. You can connect with your Fans through online content and offline meetings. It’s easy to create a meeting, and you are in control of how you host the meeting - from the meeting date, time, location to the minimum contribution required. 

5.2 Meeting with Fans. When you accept a meeting request, you are entering into a contract directly with the Fan. You are also agreeing to pay League of Nova’s service fee (see Fees in Section 12) for each confirmed meeting. League of Nova will deduct amounts you owe from your payout unless we and you agree to a different method. 

5.3 Independence of Personalities. Your relationship with League of Nova is that of an independent individual and not an employee, agent, joint venturer, or partner of League of Nova.  League of Nova does not direct or control your Meeting, and you agree that you have complete discretion whether and when to create a Meeting, and what the meeting terms are. 

6. Managing Your Meeting.

6.1 Creating and Managing Your Meeting. The League of Nova Platform provides tools that make it easy for you to create and manage meetings. Your profile, photos, videos, stories and meeting terms allow Fans to learn more about you and your experiences, interests, passions or talents. You are responsible for keeping these information accurate at all times.

You are responsible for setting the meeting terms and minimum contribution. You may not collect or accept any additional fees or contributions outside the League of Nova Platform. Do not encourage Fans to create third-party accounts, submit meeting updates, provide their contact information, or take other actions outside the League of Nova Platform in violation of these Terms.

6.4 Your Assumption of Risk. You acknowledge that many activities carry inherent risks and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the League of Nova Platform and any Content (as defined in Section 10), including your participation in any Meeting, or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online.

If the Fan cancels within 5 hours of start time, the full contribution amount will be charged. As a Personality, you can cancel the meeting at any point in time and the Fan will be eligible for a full refund. Frequent cancellations, or no-shows, are a violation of our Terms of Service and may result in suspension or permanent deactivation of your account on League of Nova. 

7.2 Meeting Changes. You can use the platform’s chat or call feature to communicate with the Fan after accepting the Fan’s meeting request. Any changes to the initial meeting terms need to be mutually agreed upon between you and the Fan. For example, you may not allow any person to join the meeting unless they are agreed by the Fan.

General Terms

9. Meeting Updates. 

After the Meeting, Fans and Personalities will have an opportunity to write and post a meeting update. Your Meeting Update may not contain any discriminatory, offensive, defamatory, or other language that violates these Terms. Meeting updates are not verified by League of Nova for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading. 

10. Content. 

League of Nova Platform allows you to interact with other Members online through the use of profile, photos, videos, audio, text, information and other content (collectively, “Content”). By providing Content, in whatever form and through whatever means, you grant League of Nova a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, sub-licensable and transferable license to copy, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publish and otherwise exploit, that Content, without limitation. If Content includes personal information, our Privacy Policy describes how we use that personal information. You are solely responsible for all Content that you provide and warrant that you either own it or are authorized to grant League of Nova the rights described in these Terms. You are responsible and liable if any of your Content violates or infringes the intellectual property or privacy rights of any third party. League of Nova prohibits, among other things, discriminatory, obscene, harassing, deceptive, violent, and illegal content. We reserve the right to remove any content, in whole or part, that violates our Terms of Service, or for any other reason at our sole discretion. In the event of repeated or severe violations, we may suspend or permanently deactivate the account(s) in question.

11. Payments. 

11.1 Third Party Services. League of Nova is not a payment service provider. League of Nova engages with Stripe Payments Singapore Pte. Ltd. (“Stripe”) as our designated payment processor. Stripe services are subject to different terms of service and privacy policies, and Members should review them. 

11.2 Payment Services. League of Nova helps facilitate payments services for Members who host or join Meetings via the League of Nova Platform. These payment services may include (if available) the following (collectively, “Payment Services”): 

  • Collecting payments from Fans, by allowing Stripe to charge the payment method associated with their League of Nova accounts, such as credit card or debit card (“Payment Method”);
  • Effecting payments to Personalities (“Payout”) to the bank account associated with their League of Nova account via PayNow transfer.

11.3 Fan Terms. 

  • Payment Authorization. You allow League of Nova or Stripe to charge your Payment Method, either directly or indirectly, for all contribution amounts due in connection with your League of Nova account. 
  • Timing of Payment. League of Nova generally charges the contribution amount due after the Personality accepts your meeting request. If Stripe is unable to collect the contribution amount due, as scheduled, the requested meeting will be deemed unsuccessful.
  • Meeting Request Status. If a meeting request is unsuccessful either because it is not accepted by the Personality or you cancel the meeting request before it is accepted by the Personality, your Payment Method will not be charged.
  • Your Payment Method, Your Responsibility. League of Nova is not responsible for any loss suffered by you as a result of incorrect Payment Method information provided by you. 

11.4 Personality Terms. 

  • Payment Collection. League of Nova generally collects the contribution amount of a Meeting at the time the Fan’s meeting request is accepted by you, unless noted otherwise.
  • Adding a Payout Method. In order to receive a Payout you must have a valid PayNow mobile proxy linked to your League of Nova account. It is your responsibility to provide and maintain accurate contact and payment information.
  • Timing of Payout. Subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the payments from Fans, League of Nova will generally accrue and initiate Payouts to your selected bank account linked to your PayNow mobile proxy on a fortnightly basis. 
  • Payout. Your Payout for a meeting will be the contribution amount less applicable fees like League of Nova service fees. In the event of cancellation of a confirmed meeting, League of Nova will credit the amount you are due (if any) as provided in the Terms and applicable cancellation policy.
  • Your Payout Method, Your Responsibility. League of Nova is not responsible for any loss suffered by you as a result of incorrect Payout Method information provided by you.

11.5 Refunds. Any refunds or credits due to a Member pursuant to the Terms will be initiated and effected by League of Nova in accordance with these Terms. 

12. Fees. 

To help League of Nova run smoothly and to cover the costs of the products and services we provide, we charge a service fee when a Meeting is confirmed. We charge Personalities who host meetings a 15% service fee. This is calculated based on the contribution amount of the meeting and is automatically deducted from the Personality’s payout. League of Nova reserves the right to change the service fees at any time, and will provide Personalities notice of any fee changes before they become effective. Fee changes will not affect meetings made prior to the effective date of the fee change. If you disagree with a fee change you may terminate this agreement at any time pursuant to Section 14.2.
