Welcome to the Armenian Social Network!

These Terms of Use (or “Terms”) govern your use of the Armenian Social Network, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply, and provide information about the Armenian Social Network Service (the “Service”), outlined below. When you create an Armenian Social Network account or use the Armenian Social Network, you agree to these Terms.

The Armenian Social Network Service is provided to you by Tun Online Armenian School. These Terms of Use therefore constitute an agreement between you and Tun Online Armenian School.

The Armenian Social Network Service

We agree to provide you with the Armenian Social Network Service. The Service includes all of the Armenian Social Network products, features, applications, services, technologies and software that we provide to advance our mission: To strengthen and build the Armenian culture. The Service is made up of the following aspects:

  • Offering personalised opportunities to create, connect, communicate, discover and share. Features to help you create, connect, share, grow your presence and communicate with people on and off The Armenian Social Network, for the purpose of making new friends, improving your speaking proficiency, building business connections and discovering how other Armenians live.
  • Fostering a positive, inclusive and safe environment.
    We develop and use tools and offer resources to our community members that help to make their experiences positive and inclusive. We also have teams and systems that work to combat abuse and breaches of our Terms and policies, as well as harmful and deceptive behaviour. We use all the information we have – including your information – to try to keep our platform secure. We may also share information about misuse or harmful content with law enforcement. Learn more in the Privacy Policy.
  • Providing consistent and seamless experiences across other Meta Company Products.
    The Armenian Social Network is part of Tun Online Armenian School, which means we share technology, systems, insights and information, including the information that we have about you (learn more in the Privacy Policy) in order to provide services that are better, safer and more secure. We also provide ways to interact across both products, such as a single login, and have designed systems to achieve a seamless and consistent experience for you.
  • Ensuring access to our Service.
    To operate our global Service, we must store and transfer data across our systems around the world, including outside of your country of residence. The use of this global infrastructure is necessary and essential to provide our Service. This infrastructure may be owned or operated by Tun Online Armenian School or their affiliates.
  • Connecting you with brands, products and services in ways that you care about.
    We use data from The Armenian Social Network and Tun Online Armenian School, as well as from third-party partners, to show you ads, offers and other sponsored content that we believe will be meaningful to you. And we try to make that content as relevant as all your other experiences on The Armenian Social Network.
  • Research and innovation.
    We use the information we have to study our Service and collaborate with others on research to make our Service better and contribute to the well-being of our community.

How our Service is funded

You can choose either a free, or paid membership with the Armenian Social Network. The paid membership includes premium features, such as video chat.

By using the Service covered by these Terms, you acknowledge that we can show you ads that businesses and organisations pay us to promote on and off the Armenian Social Network.

We show you relevant and useful ads without telling advertisers who you are. We don’t sell your personal data. We allow advertisers to tell us things such as their business goal and the kind of audience they want to see their ads. We then show their ad to people who might be interested.

We also provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads to help them understand how people are interacting with their content on and off The Armenian Social Network. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers to help them better understand their audience. We don’t share information that directly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us specific permission.

You may see branded content on The Armenian Social Network posted by account holders who promote products or services based on a commercial relationship with the business partner mentioned in their content.

The Privacy Policy

Providing our Service requires collecting and using your information. The Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and share information. It also explains the many ways in which you can control your information. You must agree to the Privacy Policy to use The Armenian Social Network.

  • You agree that we can download and install updates to the Service on your device.

Additional rights we retain

  • If you select a username or similar identifier for your account, we may change it if we believe it is appropriate or necessary (for example, if it infringes someone’s intellectual property or impersonates another user).

  • We may remove or edit your Content: Although we have no obligation to monitor any Contributions, we shall have the right to remove or edit any Contributions at any time without notice if in our reasonable opinion we consider such Contributions harmful or in breach of these Legal Terms. If we remove or edit any such Contributions, we may also suspend or disable your account and report you to authorities.

Content removal and disabling or terminating your account

  • We can remove any content or information that you share on the Service if we believe that it violates these Terms of Use, our policies, or we are permitted or required to do so by law. We can refuse to provide or stop providing all or part of the Service to you (including terminating or disabling your account) immediately to protect our community or services, or if you create risk or legal exposure for us, violate these Terms of Use or our policies, if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights or where we are permitted or required to do so by law. We can also terminate or change the Service, remove or block content or information shared on our Service or stop providing all or part of the Service if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts on us. If we take action to disable or terminate your account, we will notify you where appropriate.
  • Content that you delete may persist for a limited period of time in backup copies and will still be visible where others have shared it. This paragraph, and the section below called “Our agreement and what happens if we disagree”, will still apply even after your account is terminated or deleted.

Our agreement and what happens if we disagree

Our agreement.

  • If any aspect of this agreement is unenforceable, the rest will remain in effect.
  • Any amendment or waiver to our agreement must be in writing and signed by us. If we fail to enforce any aspect of this agreement, it will not be a waiver.
  • We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.

Who has rights under this agreement.

  • This agreement does not give rights to any third parties.
  • You cannot transfer your rights or obligations under this agreement without our consent.
  • Our rights and obligations can be assigned to others. For example, this could occur if our ownership changes (as in a merger, acquisition or sale of assets) or by law.

Who is responsible if something happens.

  • We also don’t control what people and others do or say, and we aren’t responsible for their (or your) actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or content (including unlawful or objectionable content). We also aren’t responsible for services and features offered by other people or companies, even if you access them through our Service.
  • Our responsibility for anything that happens on the Service (also called “liability”) is limited as much as the law will allow. You agree that we won’t be responsible (“liable”) for any lost profits, revenues, information or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms. This includes when we delete your content, information or account.

How we will handle disputes.

If you are a consumer, the laws of the country in which you reside will apply to any claim, cause of action or dispute that you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms (“claim”), and you may resolve your claim in any competent court in that country that has jurisdiction over the claim. In all other cases, you agree that the claim must be resolved exclusively in Australian courts, that you submit to the personal jurisdiction of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of Australia, and more specifically, the state of New South Wales, will govern these Terms and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Without prejudice to the foregoing, you agree that, in its sole discretion, we may also bring any claim that we have against you related to efforts to abuse, interfere or engage with our products in unauthorised ways in the country in which you reside that has jurisdiction over the claim.

Unsolicited material.

We always appreciate feedback or other suggestions, but may use them without any restrictions or obligation to compensate you for them, and are under no obligation to keep them confidential.

Updating these Terms

We may change our Service and Policies, and we may need to make changes to these Terms so that they accurately reflect our Service and Policies

Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the Services from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Legal Terms from time to time. We will alert you about any changes by updating the ‘Last updated’ date of these Legal Terms, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Legal Terms to stay informed of updates. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Legal Terms by your continued use of the Services after the date such revised Legal Terms are posted.

  • You have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in your Contributions to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of your Contributions in any manner contemplated by the Services and these Legal Terms.


We may offer products and services for purchase (“Purchase”). If you choose to make an Purchase, you acknowledge and agree that additional terms, disclosed to you at the point of purchase, may apply, and that such additional terms are incorporated herein by reference.

You may make a Purchase through the following payment methods (“Payment Method”): (a) making a purchase through a third-party such as the ApplePay and Google Pay (“Third Party”), or (b) paying with your credit card, debit card, or PayPal account, which will be processed by a third-party processor. Once you have made a Purchase, you authorise us to charge your chosen Payment Method. If payment is not received by us from your chosen Payment Method, you agree to promptly pay all amounts due upon demand by us.


To avoid charges for a new subscription period, you must cancel, as described below, before the end of the then-current subscription period.

Canceling Subscriptions. If you purchased a subscription directly from us, you may cancel or change your Payment Method via your user portal. If you purchased a subscription through a Third Party, you may need to access your account with that Third Party and follow their instructions to change or cancel your subscription. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of the period you last paid for, but (i) you will not (except as set forth in the subsection entitled “Refunds” below) be eligible for a prorated refund, (ii) your subscription will not be renewed when that period expires and (iii) you will then no longer be able to use the Premium Services or Purchases enabled by your subscription.

Because our Services may be utilised without a paid subscription, cancelling your subscription will not necessarily remove your profile from our Services. If you wish to fully terminate your account, you must complete this as a separate step.


These Terms commence on the date you accept them (as described in the preamble) and continue until terminated in accordance with the terms herein.

In the event that we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have breached any portion of these Terms, have misused the App, or have otherwise demonstrated conduct which we regard as inappropriate or unlawful (whether on or off the App), we reserve the right to: (a) warn you via email (to any email addresses you have provided to us) that you have violated the Terms; (b) delete your User Content; (c) discontinue your Account; (d) discontinue your subscription(s) without refund; (e) notify and/or send your User Content to and/or fully cooperate with the proper law enforcement authorities for further action; and/or (f) pursue to any other action which we deem to be appropriate. You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in our sole discretion and that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your Account.

Termination of these Terms or your Account includes the removal of access to your Account, and all related information and content associated with or inside your Account.

If your account is terminated by you or by us for any reason, all provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive, shall survive termination of these Terms, including, without limitation, the Arbitration Agreement, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers and limitation of liability. Your information will be maintained and deleted in accordance with our Privacy Policy.


Digital and subscription products are exempt from returns or refunds, due to their nature. However, customer satisfaction is important to us, so please contact us if you have any issues or concerns, and we will do our best to remedy them for you.

Please be aware that if you subscribe to services for a term (the “Initial Term”), then the terms of your subscription will be automatically renewed for additional periods of the same duration as the Initial Term at the then-current fee for such services, unless you cancel your subscription.

If you cancel your paid subscription, you will continue to have access to the Service until your next renewal date. If you fail to make payment for your paid subscription, your access will be revoked immediately, until such time as payment has been made.


These Terms, which we may amend from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between you and us. The Terms supersede all previous agreements, representations and arrangements between us (written or oral), excluding the Privacy Policy. Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

We have taken reasonable steps to ensure the currency, availability, correctness and completeness of the information contained on the Armenian Social Network and provides that information on an “as is”, “as available” basis. We do not give or make any warranty or representation of any kind about the information contained on the Armenian Social Network, whether express or implied.

You accept that the Armenian Social Network will not be provided uninterrupted or error free.

The communications between you and us may take place via electronic means, whether you use the App or send emails, or whether we post notices in the App or communicate with you via email or social media. For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from us in electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy if it were to be in writing. The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights.

If, for any reason, any of the Terms are declared illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court of a competent jurisdiction, then to the extent that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from the Terms and the remainder of the Terms shall survive, remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.

No failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege under the Terms shall operate as a waiver of such right or acceptance of any variation of the Terms and nor shall any single or partial exercise by either party of any right, power or privilege preclude any further exercise of the right or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.
