Terms of Service

 

INTRODUCTION

This is an agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and Stealz, Inc. (“Stealz” or “we”). Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.

These terms along with the Privacy Policy discussed below are called the “Terms,” and they govern your access to and use of the Stealz website or mobile application (the “Application”) and any related interactive and informational services made available to consumers (the “Services”), on any media platform. Together, the Application and the Services are called the “Platform.”

This Agreement constitutes a binding legal agreement between you as a user of the Platform, and Stealz as the provider of the Platform. Your access to and use of the Platform requires your compliance with this Agreement and the Terms.

By downloading the Application, or accessing and/or using any portion of the Platform, you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

LICENSE

Subject to your compliance with the Terms, you may download and install one (1) copy of the Application to your supported device, as well as access and use the Services, solely for your own personal and non-commercial use.

You may not:

copy, modify or distribute the Application for any purpose;
transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, rent or otherwise distribute the Application or the Services to anyone else;
reverse-engineer, decompile or create derivative works of the Application or the Services;
make the functionality of the Application or the Services available to multiple users through any means;
use multiple accounts for any single individual user; or
use the Services in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with the Terms.

No other licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by Stealz or its licensors.

MESSAGING

While we generally try to avoid push notifications and messages, as part of the Services we provide, you may receive occasional push notifications, text messages, picture messages, alerts, emails, or other types of messages directly sent to you outside or inside the Application (“Push Messages”). You have control over the Push Messages settings and can opt in or out of these Push Messages through the Services, with the exception of infrequent important service announcements and administrative messages. Please be aware that messaging fees may apply depending on the message plan you have with your wireless carrier.

REGISTRATION

In order to access certain features of the Services, you have to create a file with us (an “Account”). Even if you do not register with a username and/or password, we still need to create an Account for you in order to customize your Application experience and show you more relevant information. To create an Account and participate in the Platform, you must be at least 13 years of age or older at the time of registration. If you are younger than 18 years of age, then you also need to ensure your parent's consent to your using the Services and redeeming rewards.

If you register, you will be asked to choose a username and a password. You agree not to disclose your password to anyone else and that you will be solely responsible for any activities or actions taken under your Account, whether or not authorized by you. Please notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or your Account. We are not liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with these requirements.

You agree that the information you provide us will be true, accurate, current and complete. By creating an Account you consent to the use of: (i) electronic means to complete the Terms and to provide you with any notices given pursuant to the Terms; and (ii) electronic records to store information related to the Terms or your use of the Services.

PRIVACY

Our goal is to make the Platform as useful and rewarding for you as possible. In order to do that, we need to collect and process information from you when you use the Platform.

We will collect certain personally identifiable information from you as set forth in more detail in our Privacy Policy, which is part of the Terms. When you use the Platform, Stealz has access to your usage of the Platform as you send and receive Content and in many cases will monitor your usage. By accessing and using the Platform, you agree that we may collect, use, and disclose certain information you provide during your access to or use of the Platform, as set forth in the Privacy Policy.

As part of providing you the Platform we may need to provide you with certain infrequent service communications, such as non-advertisement service announcements and administrative messages (“Service Communications”). These Service Communications are considered part of the Services and your Account and you will not be able to opt-out from receiving them.

PAYMENT

The use of the Services and Applications is currently made available to users free of charge; however, while it is not currently intended, we reserve the right to charge a fee for using the Services at any time. If we begin charging a fee for your continued access to the Services, we will give you at least 15 days prior notice so you can opt out of the Services. If you choose to opt out of the Services, Stealz may revoke any or all points, bonuses and/or other awards in your Account after the prior notice period.

CONTENT

Certain portions of the Platform may allow you to post or upload text, graphics, images, and other content for display or publication through the Services (“Content”). By submitting Content to Stealz, you hereby grant Stealz a worldwide, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Content in connection with the Services and Stealz's (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Platform (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby do and shall grant each Business User a non-exclusive license to access or receive Content through or from the Platform and the Services related to that specific Business User, and to use, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform such Content. Additionally, you hereby grant Stealz and any third-party Business User the non-exclusive right to use your name, likeness, images and biographical information in its discretion in association with your content. Based on your settings, if you publish images or other such content through the Services they may be viewed by and shared with other users, for example, on social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

You agree not to:

submit material that violates anyone else's proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, or can be considered spam or junk mail;
knowingly publish false or inaccurate information;
submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;
post advertisements, “pyramid schemes,” chain letters or other solicitations; or
impersonate another person.

Stealz does not endorse any Content or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and we expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with any Content. We reserve the right to decide whether Content is appropriate and complies with the Terms, and may remove such Content and/or terminate your access for uploading material in violation of the Terms at any time without prior notice. We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting, publishing, or otherwise making available Content or other materials that are believed to violate the Terms. We also reserve the right to reclaim user accounts on behalf of businesses or individuals that own a legal claim or trademark on the user’s name.

It is Stealz's policy to terminate your access to the Services if you infringe the copyright rights of others, upon receipt of proper notification to Stealz by the copyright owner or the copyright owner's legal agent.

Without limiting the foregoing, if you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our Copyright Agent with the following information:

an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Services;
your address, telephone number, and email address;
a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

CONTESTS AND SWEEPSTAKES

From time to time Stealz may offer contests or sweepstakes that are governed by a separate set of rules (“Rules”). The Rules may include eligibility requirements, additional terms and conditions, information about how your personal information might be used, and other requirements or information. Before you decide to enter one of the contests or sweepstakes, you agree to read the applicable Rules. By participating in a contest or sweepstake, you will be subject to those Rules and you agree to comply with them. Restrictions

The Platform may be used and accessed for lawful purposes only. You agree not to, and to not encourage or conspire with anyone else to, engage in any conduct that is inconsistent with the purposes, intent and spirit of the Platform, or otherwise “game the system.” You also agree to abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws and regulations in connection with your use of the Services.

In addition, you agree not to do any of the following:

use the Services to collect or store personal data about other users without their express permission;
upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any viruses, worms, or other computer code that may interrupt, destroy, limit the functionality of, or interfere with access to the Services in any way;
circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Services or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any Content;

inaccurately represent the value of a referral or promo code award to any individual; or,
encourage or instruct any other individual to do any of the foregoing.

Stealz expressly reserves the right to retroactively reverse any rewards or benefits granted to you for any such prohibited conduct, or based on any material violation of the Terms. You agree to provide your full cooperation and prompt repayment under such circumstances. Stealz shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether you have engaged in prohibited conduct. Stealz's determination shall be final and unreviewable, and you waive any and all rights you may have to challenge that decision.

SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION

You may terminate your Account at any time and for any reason by deleting your account via the Application or by sending Stealz notice via email to tos@getstealz.com as described above.

Upon any termination by you, your Account may no longer be accessible. Any termination request will be handled within 30 days of receipt of such a request by Stealz. Any suspension, termination or cancellation will not affect your obligations to Stealz under the Terms (including but not limited to ownership, indemnification and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination or cancellation.

We may immediately terminate or suspend your access to the Services and remove any material (including any Content provided by you) from the Services or our servers, in the event that you breach the Terms, at our sole discretion and without prior notice to you. We also reserve the right to terminate the Services or your access at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to the need to conduct maintenance or if we discontinue any portion of the Services. Upon termination, all licenses and other rights granted to you under the Terms will immediately cease. We will not be liable to you or any other person for termination of the Services or termination of your use of the Services.

Upon any termination or suspension, any information (including Content) that you have submitted to the Services may no longer be accessed by you. Furthermore, we will have no obligation to maintain any information stored in our database related to your Account or to forward any information to you or any other person.

EXCLUSIONS

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

BUSINESS USERS

If you are a business owner, your business may participate in the Services and Platform (as a vendor, rather than a user) by paying the applicable fee to Stealz (becoming a “Business User”). Each Business User is bound by all of the terms of this Agreement. Additionally, as a Business User you further agree not to cancel use of the Service without first providing Stealz with written notice a minimum of thirty (30) days before cancellation. Stealz retains the right to modify or terminate the Services for any Business User at any time for any reason.

As a Business User, you acknowledge that there cannot be a guarantee that communications or payment transactions conducted online will be absolutely secure. You further acknowledge that there may be system failure that may limit your ability to use the online payment services. You agree to assume all risk and liability arising from your use of our online payment services, including the risk of breach in the security of the communications or transactions you conduct with Stealz online. OUR ONLINE PAYMENT SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. For purposes of identification, payments, and marketing, you agree to provide Stealz with current, accurate, complete, and updated information required for registration and/or online payment, including legal name, address, telephone number(s), and applicable payment data (e.g., credit card or bank account number). You agree to notify Stealz immediately of any changes in your registration data. Proceeding with the registration process indicates your intent to comply with these terms and conditions. By accepting these terms and conditions, you acknowledge that Stealz may initiate an ACH debit or credit card debit to the payment account(s) that you have provided, including a pre-authorization transaction.

As a Business User, you agree to give Stealz a limited and nontransferable license to use your business information (such as your company logo) for purposes of marketing and for providing the Services, both online and in print. In addition, you will release, hold harmless and indemnify Stealz from any and all claims and liabilities relating to your business information, including that such business information infringes on the intellectual property rights of any third party. As a Business User, you receive a non-exclusive license to access or receive Content through or from the Platform and the Services related to and relevant to your business, and to use, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform such Content. YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT PHOTOS AND CORRESPONDING CAPTIONS POSTED BY USERS ARE MADE TO THOSE USERS’ INDIVIDUAL FACEBOOK WALLS AS WELL AS THE FACEBOOK WALL OF YOUR BUSINESS, AND YOU AGREE THAT STEALZ, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR THE CONTENT.

GENERAL

The Terms shall be governed by North Carolina law, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be finally settled by arbitration in Wake County, North Carolina. The prevailing party in any arbitration or other proceeding arising under the Terms will be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses and attorneys' fees. Judgment may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator.

The Terms are the entire agreement between you and Stealz concerning the Platform, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications between you and Stealz with respect to the Platform. If any provision of the Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of the Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Stealz's failure to assert any right or provision under the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate any or all of the Platform at any time, or modify the Terms without notice. All modified terms and conditions will be immediately effective as of the date the modified Terns are posted on the Stealz website and will apply to all Accounts and customers enrolled in the Platform. If any modified terms and conditions are not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease using the Services, and if applicable, terminate or cancel your Account. By continuing to access or use the Application and/or the Services after we have posted the new terms and conditions on the site, you agree to be bound by such changes. Customers will be notified by email or in the Application or through other available means if the Platform is suspended or cancelled. Notice of cancellation will also appear on the Stealz website.

If you have any questions about the Terms, please contact us at tos@getstealz.com

We hope you will enjoy Stealz's Platform!

OVERVIEW OF STEALZ

Stealz is a photo-sharing punch card application that customers use at local businesses. A customer can earn points 4 ways: (i) making a purchase, (ii) posting a picture relevant to a participating local business to their Facebook Timeline, (iii) tweeting a picture relevant to a participating local business to their Twitter Profile, and (iv) following the business' Twitter account (can only be completed one time per business). These pictures are posted on both a user’s personal Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as the business’s Facebook page. All pictures that are posted are external to our application, and therefore a user is responsible for the respective Facebook and Twitter terms of service and privacy policies when they upload a photo.

POINTS: STRUCTURE AND DETAILS

By downloading this Application, you agree to the following terms and conditions regarding Points:

All points earned through making purchases and posting pictures are redeemable for deals at the respective business. Businesses pay Stealz a fee via check or credit card to use our service. Their customers can download the Application for free. We provide a business with analytics such as the number of customers using Stealz, the frequency of their visits, and the amount of pictures uploaded to Facebook and Twitter.

The points are void where prohibited, restricted or taxed or if obtained through unauthorized channels; subject to all specified terms and conditions; not exchangeable or refundable for cash; and not valid with any other offer. The value of the point systems used by Stealz varies across the Platform, and Stealz reserves the right to change a customer’s points up or down in its discretion.

PHOTO SHARES FROM WITHIN THE APP

By downloading this Application, you agree to the following terms and conditions regarding Photo Shares:

ORIGIN: Photo must be taken at the respective business, after making a purchase; Photo must verify or indicate in some way that user is at the business for which they are visiting by depicting relevant people, food, or business’s interior/exterior.
APPROPRIATENESS: Photo may not include any inappropriate features, spanning but not limited to nudity, profanity, or images of restrooms.
OVERALL QUALITY: Photo must be clear, and include relevant people, food, or business’s interior/exterior; Photo may not be blurry, blank, all one color, or depict the floor/empty wall alone.
REDUNDANCY: Photo must be completely unique to each particular visit and may not be a photo that has been previously shared through the Application on a prior visit; Photo must always be related to and taken at the business for which the user is visiting.

HOW TO REGISTER

The Platform is not available to individuals who are younger than 13 years old. If you are younger than 18 years of age, then you need to ensure your parent's consent to your participating in the Platform. There is no cost to register in the Platform. To register, download the Stealz Application to your phone, and follow the instructions to create a Stealz account (“Account”). You need a unique valid email address to create an Account, and you can only have one Account. Once you have provided the required information and acknowledged compliance with the Terms, you will be enrolled in the Platform and become a customer.
