This IP Licence ends when you delete your IP content or your account, unless your content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
We may change or discontinue any of our Services. We don't promise to store or keep showing any information and content that you've posted.

Choyr does not warrant that your donations will be used for any particular purpose and shall not be responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding the recipient cause's use of any donation you may make or for any misuse or non-use of such donations by the recipient cause. Choyr shall have no liability to donors whatsoever for any use or misuse of donations. If you have any doubts as to how the money will be spent then you should contact the recipient directly to seek reassurance. After donations are made, all further dealings are solely between the donor and such recipient.
Choyr charges a small transaction fee on every donation made on the website. The fee is currently up to 5% of the gross donation. Donations are also subject to third party payment processing fees.
We work constantly to improve our services and develop new features to make our products and services better for you and our community. As a result, we may need to update these Terms from time to time to accurately reflect our services and practices. We will only make changes if the provisions are not appropriate anymore or if they are incomplete, and only if the changes are reasonable for you in consideration to your interests. Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you of the changes and the choices you have (for example, by email or through our Products). Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our products and services. We hope that you will continue using our services, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to be a part of Choyr, you can delete your account at any time.
Both you and us may terminate this Contract at any time with notice to the other. On termination, you lose the right to access or use the Services. The following shall survive termination:

WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY OF DATA, AND NONINFRINGEMENT); (B) DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR ERRORS, AND (C) PROVIDE THE SERVICE (INCLUDING CONTENT AND INFORMATION) ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS.
SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW CERTAIN DISCLAIMERS, SO SOME OR ALL OF THESE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER LAW (AND UNLESS CHOYR HAS ENTERED INTO A SEPARATE WRITTEN AGREEMENT THAT OVERRIDES THIS CONTRACT), CHOYR AND ITS AFFILIATES (AND THOSE THAT CHOYR WORKS WITH TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR OTHERS FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, OPPORTUNITIES, REPUTATION, PROFITS OR REVENUES, RELATED TO THE SERVICES (E.G. OFFENSIVE OR DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS, DOWN TIME OR LOSS, USE OF, OR CHANGES TO, YOUR INFORMATION OR CONTENT).
If anyone brings a claim against us related to your actions, content or information on Choyr, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to such claim. Although we provide rules for user conduct, we do not control or direct users' actions on Choyr and are not responsible for the content or information that users transmit or share on Choyr. We are not responsible for any offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful or otherwise objectionable content or information that you may encounter on Choyr. We are not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user of Choyr.
If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it not enforceable, you and us agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract. To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of this Contract is binding and other translations are for convenience only. This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.
If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that we have waived its right to enforce this Contract. You may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that we may assign this Contract to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third party beneficiaries to this Contract.
We reserve the right to change the terms of this Contract and will provide you notice if we do and we agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you don't agree to these changes, you must stop using the Services.
You agree that the only way to provide us legal notice is at the addresses in the section "How to contact us".
You agree that the laws of England, excluding conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services.
