1. General rules and definitions

Mymerhaba.com ("my merhaba") is a website owned, designed and managed by Armas Iletisim, Pazarlama, Internet, Egitim ve Servis A.S Istanbul-Turkey ( “Armas” ). This page states the membership terms and conditions (the "Terms" or the "Agreement") for this website. Please read this page carefully. In choosing to use the “my merhaba” web and email service (the "Service"), you agree to be bound and abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement between you and “Armas”. The terms of this Agreement cover all uses made by you of the Service, both directly through “my merhaba" and through the Service's affiliate partners ("Affiliate Partners").

Any references herein to “my merhaba” shall be deemed to refer to mymerhaba.com and/or Armas, as applicable.

1.2 “my merhaba” is a registered trademark of Armas Iletisim, Pazarlama, Internet, Egitim, Servis A.S. Istanbul-Turkey or its affiliates. All rights reserved. These and other “my merhaba” graphics, logos and service marks and trademark may not be used without prior written consent of Armas or its affiliates, as the case may be. All other trademark, product names, company names and logos appearing on "my merhaba" are the property of their respective owners.

“Armas” may change, add, or remove portions of this Agreement at any time, but if it does so, it will post such changes on the "Service", or send them to you via email or postal mail.

1.4 If any of these rules or any future changes are unacceptable to you, you may cancel your subscription by sending email to: [email protected] merhaba.com see section 11.1 regarding termination of the Service). Your continued use of the Service now, or following the posting of notice of any changes in these operating rules, will indicate acceptance by you of such rules, changes or modifications.

1.5 “Armas” may change, suspend, or discontinue any aspect of the “Service” at any time, including the availability of any “Service” feature, database, or content. “Armas” may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the "Service" without notice or liability.

1.6 Most of the "my merhaba" service is intended for adults, and you must be eighteen (18) years or older to use the "Service" except the section prepared especially for kids and teens.

2. "Service" content and member submissions

2.1 The Content of the "Service" consists of all materials published in the "Service" (including but not limited to text, documents, news articles, photographs, images, illustrations, audio clips, graphics and video clips). The “Service” and its Content are intended for your personal, non-commercial use only. Neither “Armas” nor the author of any Content in the “Service” is liable for any delays, inaccuracies, errors or omissions in the “Service” or its Content, or for any damages arising there from.

2.2 The “Service” and its Content are protected under Turkish laws. The Content is owned or controlled by “Armas” or the party, which created the Content. You are the copyright holder of all Content created by you and posted on the "Service". You agree not to modify, publish, transmit, reproduce, create new works from, distribute, perform, display, or in any way exploit the "Service" (including software) or any Content not authored by you except as explicitly provided in Section 2.3 of this Agreement. Some Content in the "Service" may contain additional copyright notices or restrictions and you agree to abide by them.

2.3 You may download or copy the Content and other downloadable items displayed on the "Service" for personal use only, provided that you maintain all copyright and other notices contained therein. Copying or storing of any Content for other than personal use is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from “Armas”, or the copyright holder identified in the copyright notice contained in the Content. You may create or add to an Interaction and forward Interactions to other "my merhaba" members subject to the rules in Section 3 of this Agreement.

2.4 You agree that any Content created by you and published on the “Service” may be copied, edited, removed, reused, modified, published, transmitted and displayed in all media by “Armas”, the “Service”'s Affiliate Partners and their successors, assigns and licensees, and you hereby grant to those entities the right to do so. In addition, you waive any moral rights you may have in with respect to the Content being altered or attributed in a manner not agreeable to you.

3. Interactions

3.1 Interactions are those portions of the "my merhaba" "Service" (including but not limited to question-and-answer exchanges, discussions, chat and commentary) where members post Content for public display in the "Service" ("Interactions"). You shall not upload to, or distribute or otherwise publish in any Interaction any libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, gratuitously sexual, abusive, harassing or otherwise illegal material.

3.2 a) Be courteous. You agree that you will not threaten or verbally abuse other members, use defamatory language, or deliberately disrupt Interactions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages or "Spam."

b) Use respectful language. The "my merhaba" "Service" is as helpful and reliable as the people in it. Like any community, it flourishes only when its members feel welcome and safe. You agree not to use language that abuses or discriminates on the basis of race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual preference, age, region, disability, etc. Hate speech of any kind is grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the "Service".

c) Use appropriate language. Some Interactions may deal with sensitive topics. While “Armas” encourages open exchanges, even about adult-oriented issues, members are asked to consider the different ages and sensitivities of the entire community while participating in the "my merhaba" "Service".

d) Debate, but don't attack. In a system full of opinions and preferences, people always disagree. “Armas” encourages active Interactions and welcomes heated debate in the “my merhaba” “Service”. But personal attacks are a direct violation of this Agreement and are grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the "Service".

e) Remember that member participation is what makes the "my merhaba" "Service" valuable. If you post information other members consider unsuitable or disrespectful, people will leave your Interactions and you will lose the opportunity to connect with other members and share your knowledge.

3.3 The Interactions shall be used only in a non-commercial manner except for the areas of "Classified Ads" and "Product Show Case". You shall not, without the express approval of "Armas”, distribute or otherwise publish in the “Service” any Content which contains (i) offers to buy or sell goods or services; (ii) advertising; or (iii) commercial solicitations of any kind. Examples of prohibited solicitations include efforts to obtain funds or services from members and attempts to recruit members to participate in research studies, polls, surveys or lawsuits.

3.4 THIS "SERVICE" DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL, LEGAL OR FINANCIAL ADVICE. All the Content of the "Service", including all Interactions, are for informational purposes only. The "Service" is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical, legal or financial advice. You should never disregard professional advice because of something you've received from or read in the "my merhaba" "Service".

3.5 All "my merhaba" members are free to offer recommendations about products and services, including their own or their employer's. However, if you are discussing or recommending a product or service with which you have a professional affiliation, you must state that affiliation. "Armas” reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to remove messages that it deems to be advertisements by nature of their content, format, tone or use in the “Service”. Members disregarding this policy may have parts or all of their access to the “Service” restricted without notice.

3.6 You are solely responsible for the Content you post in the “Service”. However, while “Armas” does not and cannot review every Interaction in the “Service” and is not responsible for the Content of these Interactions, “Armas” reserves the right to delete, remove, or edit Interactions that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable.
