Terms of service

This agreement was written in English (US). To the extent any translated version of this agreement conflicts with the English version, the English version controls.
Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities ("Statement," "Terms," or "SRR") derives from the Namhook Principles, and is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with Namhook, as well as Namhook brands, products and services, which we call the “Namhook Services” or “Services”. By using or accessing the Namhook Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time.
Because Namhook provides a wide range of services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product, or service. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with this SRR, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.
