Charisma.ai Terms of Service
Effective Date: 10/05/2021
Welcome to Charisma.AI, brought to you by Charisma Entertainment Limited.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. BY INSTALLING, USING OR ACCESSING THE CHARISMA.AI PLATFORM, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO INSTALL, USE OR ACCESS THE PLATFORM.
These Terms of Service govern your use of:
- (a) our storytelling platform located at https://charisma.ai and downloadable as an app (“Platform”);
- (b) any services, features and content accessible or downloadable from the Platform (“Service”); and
- (c) any other digital or online product or service we have made available to you and you have licensed, downloaded or otherwise accessed.
These Terms of Service incorporate our Privacy Notice and our Values and Content Guidelines which you must also read. When we say “these Terms”, we mean all three documents read together.
If you download our app from a third party app store, you may also be subject to the terms and policies of that app store which may include additional terms relating to your use of our app and Service. If there is any conflict between that app store’s terms and policies and these Terms, these Terms win.
1. You must be at least 13 years old
By accessing the Platform, you confirm to us that:
- (a) you are aged 13 or older,
- (b) you understand and agree to these Terms, and
- (c) if you are between the ages of 13 and 18, your legal guardian has reviewed and agrees to these Terms.
2. Sometimes things change
Sometimes we need to make changes to these Terms and to the Platform and the Service. If we make any changes, we will post a clear notice on the Platform. We may also (but do not have to) inform you by email or push notification and/or ask you to confirm your acceptance. You should therefore check updates on the Platform regularly as, each time you access it, you are agreeing to the current Terms.
We can change these Terms but you cannot. If at any time you do not wish to accept our Terms, you must delete your account and cease accessing and using the Platform and Service.
We can also change how the Platform operates and change the Service provided through the Platform. We will not make any fundamental changes without giving you enough notice to decide if you want to keep using the Platform and the Service.
Provided we give you notice, you are not entitled to a refund of any fees you have paid on your account.
3. Registering your account
You can browse the Platform without registering but, to play, create and edit stories, you will need to register an account with us. When you register, you will need to provide certain personal information which we will process in line with our Privacy Notice.
You confirm that all information you provide to us is true and up-to-date and that you will keep it up-to-date.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for any activities conducted through it. So make sure your keep your access details and passwords safe and let us know immediately if you suspect someone else has access to your account.

The Platform enables you to upload storylines, characters, text, graphics and audio which the Service will then turn into an interactive story which other people can enjoy via the Platform and associated app. The Service includes certain tools to allow you to manipulate and adjust your content and use of such tools is entirely at your own discretion. Provided your content complies with our Values and Content Guidelines we will not pre-moderate it.
You alone are responsible for your content in the form you upload it and in the form you approve the Platform displaying it.
Notwithstanding any of the above, we have the right to remove your content from the Platform at any time and for any reason.
