Raven Live App may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Creator Fund Terms, at any time and at its sole discretion. Raven Live App will endeavor to provide notice to the Creator of any Program modifications; provided, however, that Raven Live App is not responsible for the Creator’s failure to receive notice of changes, and Creator agrees to review the Policies and any updated Creator Fund Terms to ensure that Creator is familiar with the most recent version of such Creator Fund Terms and Policies. Creator’s continued participation in the Program following the public posting of updated Creator Fund Terms to the Creator shall constitute the Creator’s acceptance of the updated Creator Fund Terms. If Creator does not agree to any updated Creator Fund Terms or Policies, Creator may terminate their participation in the Program at any time.
The failure of Raven Live App to exercise any rights granted herein upon the occurrence of any of the contingencies set forth in these Creator Fund Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such rights. The creator may not assign, transfer, or delegate any rights or obligations contained in these Creator Fund Terms. Raven Live App may assign these Creator Fund Terms at its option without prior notice to Creator.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is necessary, we will try to provide at least 30 days' notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a necessary change will be determined at our sole discretion.
