- The prices per minute or price per view payable by Members and which also constitute the base for counting amounts earned by me as described above are subject to change at Website Operator’s own discretion and upon prior notification to me. In case of substantial change in the amount of available price to charge, I shall have the possibility to terminate the present Services Agreement upon reception of such change; otherwise if I continue providing services through the Websites it shall be considered as tacit acceptance to such changes.
- Credit card fraud is a crime, and Website Operator will do everything in its power to help local and international agents to trace people committing such felonies. Website Operator will NOT pay any fees in case of fraudulent purchases. The purchases MUST originate from the owner of the credit card or have permission from the owner for using their credit cards. The Website Operator team does everything in its power to minimize the percentage of fraudulent purchases. If you know of ANYONE committing such activities please notify us, so that you can help us protect our Websites.
- The breach of the current Agreement may effect a warning from the Customer Service staff. The second occasion may effect a $5 penalty that would be deducted from the Broadcasters earnings on all further occasions $10 will be deducted from the Broadcasters earnings.

Scheduled Private & Group Sessions
- By scheduling a Private or Group Session (the “Special Session”), the Broadcaster agrees to be present at the indicated time. Failure to do so may result in the removal of certain features and/or benefits or any other penalties that may be deemed appropriate by the Website Operator.
- Special Sessions may not be canceled within 12 hours of the indicated session starting time.
Canceling any Special Session without justified cause will result in increasingly escalating penalties which will be applied as follows:
- - First offense: official warning
- - Second offense: 24 hours suspension
- - Third offense: feature deactivation
- A Group Session may be canceled if the amount of sold tickets does not meet the minimum threshold 12 hours before the indicated session starting time.
- Broadcasters must be online on DoclerCam 15 minutes before the Special Session’s starting time. A Broadcaster has 90 seconds to initiate manually the Special Session. If the Special Session is not started by the Broadcaster within this timeframe, such session will automatically start after 90 seconds.
- If the Broadcaster is not online on DoclerCam at the time the Special Session should start, such session is automatically canceled and the ticket purchased tickets are refunded to the members. Additionally, the Broadcaster may receive one of the aforementioned penalties.
- Sessions automatically end and Broadcasters do not need to manually close them. It is recommended that the Broadcasters periodically check the timer, so as to be always aware of the upcoming end of a session.
- This Services Agreement shall be effective as from the date when the Broadcaster registers a Channel on the Website and accepts this Services Agreement and shall remain in force until duly terminated by either party in full compliance with the terms and conditions expressly set forth in this Services Agreement.

- Website Operator may make changes to this Agreement, in such case it undertakes the duty to inform me of such changes before they enter into force.

- Either party may terminate this Agreement, at any time, based on any reason, upon prior and express notice given in writing (like email) to the other party with a minimum antecedence of 5 (five) business days. The Website Operator may terminate this Agreement immediately in case of serious violation of its terms by the Broadcaster, without prior notice.
- In accordance with the DMCA notice procedure implemented hereto and the intellectual property and other applicable laws in the world (as the case may be), the Website Operator has adopted a policy to immediately terminate without notice any Broadcaster’s account if the Broadcaster is determined by the Website Operator to be a “repeat infringer”. A repeat infringer includes, without limitation a Broadcaster who has been notified by the Website Operator of infringing activity violations more than twice and/or who has had their Content (live streams / uploads / Free or Private Broadcasts / VOD) removed from the Website more than twice. The Website Operator may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Website and/or terminate the Broadcaster’s account, if said Broadcaster infringes any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement. In addition, the Website Operator accommodates and does not interfere with standard technical measures used by intellectual property rights owners to protect their material.
- If any term or provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable to any extent under any applicable law by court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of this Services Agreement will not be affected thereby, and each remaining term and provision of this Agreement shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
