These Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) are between you and Influence Mobile, Inc.  and its corporate affiliates (collectively “the Company”), for the use of Software and other related sites and applications owned and operated by the Company (collectively referred to as the “Software”)  whether or not you have registered a unique end-user account (an “Account”) at the Software.  YOU MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE AND A RESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR CANADA TO USE THE SOFTWARE.  ONE PLAYER ACCOUNT MAY BE SET UP PER DEVICE (i.e. ONE UNIQUE FACEBOOK OR EMAIL ACCOUNT PER DEVICE, BUT THERE CAN BE MULTIPLE APPS INSTALLED).  BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR OTHERWISE USING THIS SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ANY THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT ACCESS, DOWNLOAD, AND/OR USE THE SOFTWARE. THE TERM “SOFTWARE”, AS USED IN THIS AGREEMENT, ALSO INCLUDES ANY UPDATES, UPGRADES AND BUG FIXES/PATCHES TO THE SOFTWARE THAT MAY BE MADE FROM TIME TO TIME.

THE TERMS OF USE INCLUDE A CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND A WAIVER OF JURY TRIALS, AND REQUIRE BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES.

THE TERMS OF USE LIMIT THE REMEDIES THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.

The terms and conditions set forth in these Terms of Use, as well as our Privacy Policy and any Additional Terms(defined below), constitute the entire agreement between the Company, by and on behalf of its subsidiaries and affiliates, and users and members of the Software. By using the Software, you signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Use at any time without further notice. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms of Use on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the Terms of Use’s effective date. If we make any material changes, and you have registered for an Account with us, we may also send an email to you at the last email address you provided to us pursuant to these Terms of Use.  Any changes to the Terms of Use will be effective immediately for new users of the Software and will be effective thirty (30) days after posting notice of such changes on the Software for existing users, provided that any material changes will be effective for users who have an Account with us upon the earlier of thirty (30) days after posting notice of such changes on the Software or thirty (30) days after dispatch of an email notice of such changes to Registered Users (as defined below). The Company may require you to provide consent to the updated Terms of Use in a specified manner before further use of the Software is permitted. Your continued use of Software after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use.    If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms of Use, please do not use or access Software.  It is your responsibility to regularly review these Terms of Use.

Additional Terms

We may post additional terms, official rules, or agreements that apply to certain services, applications, activities, and features we offer or provide at or about the Software (“Additional Terms”), and you may be subject to such Additional Terms when you access those services, applications, activities and/or features. If the Terms of Use are inconsistent with the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms shall control with respect to such services, applications, activities and/or features.

Accounts

You are required to create an Account and become a Registered User to use the Software to have access to all the features of the Software. For the purposes of these Terms of Use, a “Registered User” is a end user of the Software who has registered an Account on the Software or have a valid account on the social networking service, such as Facebook, through which the user has connected to the Software. An Account is typically created by providing us with (a) your email address, a unique password and other required information or (b) by clicking the applicable “Facebook®” button on the login or registration pages; doing so will automatically create an Account that is linked to your Facebook profile (if you have one) and you understand that we will incorporate relevant personal information found on your Facebook profile as part of your Account.

In registering for the Software, you agree to (1) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (including but not limited to full legal name and address) prompted by the Software’s registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (2) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you have given a false name, address, or any other requested information, the account will be terminated.  You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree that you shall monitor your Account to restrict use by minors, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of the Software by minors. You may not share your Account or password with anyone, and you agree to (a) notify the Company immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or any other breach of security; and (b) exit from your Account at the end of each session. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or the Company has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, the Company has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Software (or any portion thereof). You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself. You agree that you shall not have more than one Account per platform or social networking service at any given time. You agree not to create an Account or use the Software if you have been previously removed by the Company, or if you have been previously banned from using the Software.

If you download the app from any source other than Apple’s “App Store” or Google, Inc’s “Google Play”, your account will be terminated.  You agree to use only the most current version of the Software.  If the Company, at their sole discretion, deems your app to be outdated your account will be terminated.  You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services through any automated means (including, without limitation, use of scripts or web crawlers) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file present on the Services.

 

Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions

Any sweepstakes, contests or promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) that may be offered via any of the Software may be governed by Additional Terms, which may set out eligibility requirements, such as certain age or geographic area restrictions, terms and conditions, and details governing how your personal information may be used. It is your sole responsibility to read all Additional Terms to determine whether or not you want to or are eligible to participate, enter or register in or for the Promotions. By participating in a Promotion, you will be subject to the Additional Terms and you agree to comply with and abide by such Additional Terms and the decisions of the sponsor(s) defined therein. The Third Party Outlets are in no way associated with the Company’s Promotions.  Promotions are awarded on a first-come, first-serve and while-supplies-last basis. If a winning item is unavailable, out of stock, has changed in price, or for whatever reason cannot be provided to you, the Company may, at its sole and absolute discretion, award you a reward of equal or greater value to the original item(s).

Daily/Hourly Sweepstakes Eligibility:

A player (throughout all of their downloaded apps) is eligible to win 1 time per day, twice in 4 days, and three times within 8 days.  A win expires on day 9 and adjusts the wins accordingly.

A winner of any Promotion has 7 (seven) days to confirm eligibility and any information necessary to fulfill the Promotional item.  The Promotional win will be forfeited after 7 days if we do not receive the necessary information.  The Company will make two attempts to contact a Player to notify them of a win.  These attempts will be made via email and also in app.  If a Player does not furnish the Company with authentic and reliable contact information, the Company bears no responsibility for notifying the Player and the win will be forfeit.

Rewards Programs

Overview. The Company may offers reward programs under which you have the opportunity to earn points that are redeemable for rewards (“Rewards Programs”). Not all of the Software offer Rewards Programs, however, and Rewards Programs may include Additional Terms that apply to your participation in activities allowing you to earn points (singularly “Activity” and collectively “Activities). The Company may limit your ability to participate in a Rewards Program in its sole and absolute discretion, and may void any points, rewards, or potential rewards you may have earned or accumulated in a Rewards Program, including (without limitation) if you do not comply with these Terms of Use. You agree to abide by the final and binding decisions of the Company regarding a Rewards Program and your participation in it. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or cancel all or a portion of a Rewards Program, including any points you may have accrued, at any time without notice, and for a duration to be determined in our sole and absolute discretion, including (without limitation) indefinite suspension or cancellation.

Earning Points. Points can be earned in a Rewards Program by participating in certain Activities, as described at or about the applicable Software. If you choose to participate and follow the instructions associated with an Activity, upon satisfying all of the requirements of the Activity, you will be awarded the points associated with completing that Activity.  At our sole discretion points may not be awarded, points may be removed or your account terminated if the location status of the device is disabled.  Any use of software designed to mask, hide, change, spoof, or in any way redirect identity or location will result in the termination of the account. There may be limitations on Activities and rewards, so please be sure to review all applicable Additional Terms before deciding whether or not you would like to participate. For example, we reserve the right to request receipts of completed purchases prior to or after the awarding of points in order to verify with the applicable merchant that such purchases are valid. The Company will only reward points on purchases which we can verify and are paid a commission.  Some of the limitations on Activities and rewards include (without limitation), our right to change or limit your ability to participate in certain Activities or the Rewards Program itself; our right to change or limit the allowable frequency of Activities; our right to change or limit the number of points you can earn for a given Activity; our right to change or limit the number of points you can earn during a given time period; our right to change the Activities or rewards available, or the number of points required for a particular reward.

Redeeming Points. You may redeem points you have earned for rewards offered in a Rewards Program pursuant to the applicable Additional Terms. Supplies may be limited. Rewards are awarded on a first-come, first-serve and while-supplies-last basis. If you attempt to redeem points for a reward and the Company determines that the reward is unavailable, out of stock, or for whatever reason cannot be provided to you, the Company may, at its sole and absolute discretion, award you a reward of equal or greater value.  The Company may at its sole discretion issue a credit, reversal, or refund of points but under no circumstances is obligated to do any of the previous; in other words, once you order a reward, the Company is under no obligation to cancel the reward or return the reward for a refund of points.  The Company may also, at its sole and absolute discretion, deduct extra points should the requested reward increase in price, be subject to tax, shipping, or any other fee.  Points earned are only redeemable within the Rewards Program in which they were earned. Points are not your personal property, and are not descendible, may not be inherited, bartered or sold to any third party. The only way to use points is to redeem them for Rewards Program rewards through the Prize Tab in the related Company Software.

Products made available for rewards are not the responsibility of the Company and the Company makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, as to the condition, suitability, quality, fitness, and/or safety of the reward.  The Company is not responsible for the legality of the reward in the location which you choose to have the reward shipped.  You are solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and any other costs or expenses of accepting and using the reward. Some rewards may have eligibility requirements and the Company reserves the right to verify your eligibility qualifications prior to fulfilling any reward.

Delivery. Rewards and Promotions will only be mailed to the U.S. postal address you provide when you submit a request for redemption. NO PO BOXES.  Processing times may vary. Rewards or Promotions that are undeliverable for whatever reason (including, without limitation, because the address was input incorrectly, the delivery service will not deliver to the address provided, or any other reason ) will not be re-sent and are forfeited, and the points will not be refunded.  The Company will make only one attempt to fulfill a reward or Promotion.  The Company takes no responsibility if the reward or Promotion is lost in transit, delivered to an incorrect address, delivery has been confirmed and the player claims to not have received an item, or for any other reason a reward may be claimed to not be received.

Inactive Accounts. Accounts that have not been logged into for sixty days or more are deemed inactive and points/rewards earned in these accounts are null and void with the exception of points created by the approved use of a paid point booster.  After six months inactive, the points earned with a paid point booster will be converted into a gift card of the Company’s choosing and the account will be closed.  Only points created by the approved use of the paid point booster will be awarded any monetary value.  This value will be determined by the Company’s current redemption metric at the time of the account closure and is not a guaranteed value.  Points created by the use of a paid point booster by fraudulent or automated means (including, without limitation, use of scripts, web-crawlers, bots, or unconfirmed/non-commissioned purchases) will have no value and are not eligible for any award/reward regardless of the means used to accrue the points.  Points/Rewards are nontransferable and are void if a transfer is attempted.  Points and/or rewards may not be bartered or sold. Points and/or the accounts are not transferable upon death or as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law.

Tax Matters. You acknowledge and agree that we do not have the ability, in every instance, to determine whether or not the Rewards you earned or redeemed are considered reportable taxable earnings in your jurisdiction. You are therefore responsible for any and all tax liability arising from or associated with your use of the Software, including liability arising from your accrual of points, rewards, winning of Sweepstakes, or your redemption of points for gift cards or other items. As a condition of your continued use of the Software, we may require you to provide necessary tax information if our records show that you are required to report your earnings to the appropriate regulatory entity. We encourage you, and it is your responsibility, to seek advice of a tax expert in order to determine the tax consequences of your activities on the Software.

Waiver and Indemnification. By participating in a Rewards Program and/or Activity, you agree: (a) to be bound by these Terms of Use and any applicable Additional Terms and by all applicable laws and decisions of the Company, which shall be binding and final; (b) to waive any rights to claim ambiguity with respect to these Terms of Use and applicable Additional Terms; (c) to waive all of your rights to bring any claim, action, or proceeding against the Company in connection with the Software, any Rewards Program, or any Activity; and (d) to forever and irrevocably agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless each of the Company and its officers, directors, employees, and agents from any and all claims, lawsuits, judgments, causes of action, proceedings, demands, fines, penalties, liability  costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable outside attorneys’ fees) that may arise in connection with: (i) the Software, any Rewards Program, or any Activity, including but not limited to your participation or inability to participate in any Rewards Program or Activity, (ii) typographical or printing errors in the Additional Terms or any Rewards Program materials, (iv) any change in any prize (or any components thereof) due to unavailability, or due to reasons beyond Company’s control, (v) any interruptions in or postponement, cancellation, or modification of any Rewards Program or Activity, (vi) human error, (vii) incorrect or inaccurate transcription, receipt or transmission of any entry into or participation in an Activity, (viii) any technical malfunctions or unavailability of the Software or any telephone network, computer system, computer online system, computer timing and/or dating mechanism, computer equipment, software, or Internet service provider, or mail service utilized by Company or by you, including the inability to participate in any Activity or earn points due to bugs, errors and other technical glitches, (ix) interruption or inability to access the Software or any online service via the Internet due to hardware or software compatibility problems, (x) any lost/delayed data transmissions, omissions, interruptions, defects, and/or any other errors or malfunctions, (xi) any late, lost, stolen, mutilated, misdirected, illegible, delayed, garbled, corrupted, destroyed, incomplete, undeliverable or damaged entries in any Rewards Program or activity, (xii) lost, late, stolen, misdirected, damaged or destroyed prizes (or any element thereof), or (xiii) the negligence or willful misconduct by you.  COMPANY IS not responsible for any injury or damage, whether TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER person or TO ANY property, related to or resulting from YOUR participation in any ACTIVITY and/or ACCEPTANCE OF any Prize. By participating in any Challenge, you expressly assume all liability and responsibility for your participation and agree that participation is solely at your own risk.

Subject to your rights under any Consumer Law referred to below and to the maximum extent permitted by law, and unless restricted or prohibited by law, in no event will the Company, its directors, managers, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, be liable to you or any third person for any special, direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever including any lost profits or lost data arising from your use of the Software, the Services or other materials or content on, accessed through or downloaded from the Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including without limitation negligence), or any other legal theory, and whether or not the Company has been advised of the possibility of these damages. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction. You specifically acknowledge that the Company shall not be liable for user submissions or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party and that the risk of harm or damage from the foregoing rests entirely with you.

The Company will not be liable for the termination of the Rewards Programs on any account whatsoever including (without limitation) any awards, points, prizes or credits in a member’s favor at the time of termination. Sometimes when you use our Services, you may use a service or download a piece of software, or purchase goods, provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person concerned. If so, these terms do not affect your legal relationship with these other companies or individuals.

You agree that we are not responsible for the loss of any points, prizes, awards or credits, regardless of monetary value, in the event there is any change in the value of each point or reward (as determined in Company’s sole discretion), data or server error, computer and/or network system error or failure, criminal act, vandalism, cyber attack, or any other events, including, but not limited, to those which make it commercially unreasonable for us to determine the value of any account or accounts.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify and hold the Company, and each of its directors, managers, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, action, cause of action, application, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with (i) your use of and access to the Software and the Services; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Use; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; (iv) any claim that one of your user submissions caused damage to a third party; (v) any tax consequences related to your use of the Software and/or (vi) any content you post or share on or through the Service.

Arbitration Agreement. Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully.  It is part of your contract with Company and affects your rights.  It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.  

Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms of Use and any applicable Additional Terms (“Terms”) or the use of any product or service provided by the Company that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement.  This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.

Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution.  Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief.  A Notice to the Company should be sent to: Influence Mobile, P.O. Box 969, Kirkland, WA 98033].  After the Notice is received, you and the Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally.  If you and the Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding.  The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.

Arbitration Rules Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section.  If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider.  The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator.  Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00 ) may  be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief.  For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules.  Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise.  Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you initiate an arbitration in which you seek less than $500 in damages and comply with the Terms, including the Notice Requirement, the Company shall reimburse you for your AAA filing fee, and shall pay all administration and arbitrator fees up to a total amount of $500.   If the Arbitrator grants you an award, the company will reimburse your attorney’s fees.

Additional Rules for Non-appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration.  The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.

Time Limits.  If you or the Company pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.

Authority of Arbitrator.  If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and the Company, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and the Terms.  The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded.  The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have.  The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and the Company.

Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.  ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.

Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law.  This Paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.

SeverabilityIf any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

Right to Waive.  Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted.  Such waiver shall not waive or effect any other portion of this Agreement.

Survival of AgreementThis Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Company.

Small Claims Court.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or the Company may bring an individual action in small claims court.

Emergency Equitable Relief.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration.  A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.

Courts.  In any circumstances where the foregoing Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within King County, Washington, for such purpose.

Governing Law.  The Terms of Use and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Washington, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.  The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
