Qwiki, Inc. - Privacy Policy, Copyright (DMCA) Policy, Terms of Service

Thank you for your interest in Qwiki, and for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our terms and policies:

Privacy Policy

Overview

Qwiki, Inc. ("Qwiki" or "we") provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our practices and policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from you.

Information We Collect

We may collect information about you and your use of our website, and any products, software, data, content, and services offered on, from or through our website and/or mobile application(s) (collectively, the "Service"). We may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, IP address, UDID or other applicable device identifier, content stored on your device and related meta data, demographic and biographical information as well as other information. The following sections describe some of the ways in which we may collect information:

Registration and Use

We may provide you with the opportunity to register or subscribe with us. If you register or subscribe, you may provide information to us and we collect a wide variety of information about you. Such information may include personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, IP address UDID or other applicable device identifier, demographic and biographical information and other information. When you use the Service to submit content, we will collect any personally identifiable information that may be included therein (such as your likeness), as well as a variety of meta data associated with the particular content file (such as creation data, originating software application, location data, and the like).

Log Files

Like many websites, we may automatically gather certain information about our Service traffic and store it in log files. We may also use third parties to gather such information. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/ exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

Cookies

We may use cookies to keep track of some types of information while you are using our Service. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We may also use cookies to automatically collect information about your online activity on our Service, for example, which web pages you browsed, which links you clicked on, or which searches you conducted on our Service. If you choose to decline our cookies, you assume all responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality or access.

Information from Linked Accounts.

The Service may enable you to link your account on the Service with your account on certain third party services (such as Facebook or Twitter) ("Linked Accounts"), and we may obtain information, including personal information, from such Linked Accounts. By linking a third party Linked Account to your account on the Service, Qwiki will have access to certain information on your Linked Account. Information from Linked Accounts that may be accessed and stored includes profile information, friends lists, and other information you have access to through your Linked Account, for example your Facebook friends' listed interests, in each case provided that you and such other users have configured such accounts to make such information available to third parties in this manner.

Web Beacons (Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags)

We may employ and our third party partners may employ a software technology called web beacons, also referred to as clear GIFs or pixel tags, that help manage content on the Service by tracking what content is effective. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users in order to further personalize our Service for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We also may include web beacons in advertisements or promotional or other e-mail messages or to determine whether messages have been opened or acted upon. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

How we use your information

In general, we may use information that we collect about you to: (i) provide, improve and customize the Service to you and others; (ii) conduct research and analysis about your activities on the Service, including your use of, or interest in, different parts of our Service, or products or services offered by third parties; (iii) provide customer support and manage your account; (iv) provide you information via e-mail, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about the Service or products or services offered by us or third parties; (v) monitor surveys, discussion boards, forums and/or chat rooms provided to you on the Service from us or a third party; (vi) verify your eligibility and deliver prizes in connection with contests; (vii) develop and provide content and advertising from us or third parties customized based on your activity and/ or interests; (viii) enforce this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Service and other applicable terms and conditions; (ix) manage our business; and (x) perform functions and activities as otherwise described to you at the time of collection of information.

Correspondence

We may send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions. We may also use your name and email address to send newsletters to you. We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our Service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.

Customer Service

We may communicate with you in response to your inquiries and to manage your account. We may communicate with you by email or telephone.

Profile

We may store information that we collect through cookies, log files, web beacons, and/or third party sources to create a "profile" of your preference and activities. We may tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to improve and customize our Service and provide tailored promotions and marketing offers for you. We may purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database, to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our profiles, we may tie this information to the personally identifiable information we have.

How We Share Information

Your Content

Fundamentally, the Qwiki Service is a way for you to share content. Any information that you include within materials you publish through the Service, such as by creating Qwikis and publishing them through linked accounts on social networking sites or distributing via email, will be made available to other users who have access to such materials, and Qwiki does not and cannot control how such users subsequently use such information and materials. We urge you to carefully consider the content of such materials, and if you choose to include personally identifiable information about yourself or others in such materials, you do so at your sole risk. We may now or in the future offer certain features that enable you to set certain privacy options for your mateirals, but no security measures are impenetrable or perfect, and we cannot and do not warrant that such options or features will prevent unauthorized access or use of your personal information. Additionally, even after information posted on the Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Service.

Aggregate Information (Non-Personally Identifiable)

We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. This information does not identify individual users and may be used to develop the Service and to target content and advertising.

Third Party Advertisers

Advertisements may be offered through our Service by our advertising partners. We may share usage, traffic and other information with our advertising partners for the purpose of targeting advertisements through the Service. Our advertising partners may use cookies and web beacons on the Service, which allow them to recognize a user's cookie when a user uses the Service and to measure advertising effectiveness.

Service Providers

We may share your personal information with our authorized service providers that may be associated with us to perform functions on our behalf. These functions may include providing customer service, performing business and marketing analysis, supporting and improving the functionality of our Service, and providing or maintaining contests, surveys and other features offered through our Service. These service providers may have access to information about you, including personally identifiable information, that they need to perform their functions.

Business Partners

We may partner with third parties to offer you surveys, contests, products and services through our Service. When you participate in such surveys or contests, or purchase such products and services, you authorize us to share information about you, including personally identifiable information, with such third parties. If you have any questions or concerns regarding how such third parties use your information, please consult the applicable third party's privacy policy. You agree that we will not responsible or liable for any loss or damage incurred in connection with our partnership with such third parties, their activities on our Service, and the sharing of your information with such third parties.

Legal

We reserve the right to, and you acknowledge and agree that we may, disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe, in our sole discretion, that disclosure is reasonable to protect our or a third party's rights; to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us or the Service; to assist in investigation, prosecution, prevention, or taking other action regarding illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing, or suspected illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect a user's or a third party's health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened; or in connection with an actual or proposed corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, consolidation, asset sale, divestiture, or insolvency proceeding involving all or part of our business or assets.

Abuse Victims

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Service, we reserve the right, but have no obligation, to disclose any your information, including personally identifiable information, if in our sole discretion, we suspect or have reason to suspect, that the information involves a victim of physical, psychological or other abuse, including without limitation elder abuse, child abuse, spousal abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. If we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion, that some information should be disclosed to authorities, we reserve the right to do so. Such authorities may include law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, or court officials. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we have the right to make such disclosure in our sole discretion.

Links to Other websites

The Service may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by Qwiki. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Service and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected from you by us.

Age Restrictions

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13, and if we become aware that we have obtained personal information from users under the age of 13, we will purge such information from our database.

Outside the United States

Any information we collect may be transferred to, stored and processed in servers located in the United States and other countries around the world. This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information on Service from residents of the United States. If you are using our Service from outside the United States, you hereby acknowledge that your information may be transferred out of your country, and stored and processed in the United States and other jurisdictions where our servers may be located, and agree to such transfer, storage, and processing. Other countries may have more comprehensive data protection and privacy laws than those of the United States. By using the Service, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.

In the Event of Merger or Sale:

In the event that all or a portion of Qwiki or its assets is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, regardless of the form or circumstances underlying such transaction, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

Changes in this Privacy Policy

Qwiki may, in its sole discretion, from time to time, modify or revise this Privacy Policy without notice, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. The most current version of this Privacy Policy can be viewed at our website. Once posted, our amended Privacy Policy will take become effective on a going forward basis as provided in the Terms of Service, except that (i) unless you agree otherwise, we will use your personally identifiable information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when we received that information and (ii) if you do not agree with any changes to the Privacy Policy, you may terminate your account and cease use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service after revised Privacy Policy has become effective indicates that you have read, understood and agreed to the current version of the Privacy Policy.

Warranty Disclaimer

THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT SHALL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, QWIKI, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, THE CONTENT, AND YOUR USE THEREOF. QWIKI MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE SERVICE OR THE CONTENT AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (I) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES, (II) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF OUR SERVICE OR THE CONTENT, (III) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS, (IV) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM OUR SERVICE, (IV) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TIME-BOMBS, WORMS, CANCELBOTS, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH OUR SERVICE OR THE CONTENT BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (V) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICE. QWIKI DOES NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISED OR OFFERED BY A THIRD PARTY THROUGH THE SERVICE OR FEATURED IN ANY BANNER OR OTHER ADVERTISING, AND QWIKI WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO OR IN ANY WAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.

Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Qwiki, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected to (i) any User Content you submit to the Service, (ii) your access to or use of the Service, or the Content, or (iii) your violation of these Terms of Service.

Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT SHALL QWIKI, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF USE, OR COSTS OF OBTAINING SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONTENT, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF QWIKI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES.

IN NO EVENT SHALL QWIKI'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONTENT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100). THIS LIMITATION IS CUMULATIVE AND NOT PER CLAIM.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES, OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, YOU AGREE THAT BECAUSE SUCH WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND DNA GAMES, AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND QWIKI, QWKI'S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT QWIKI WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.

Assignment

These Terms of Service will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns, provided that you may not assign or transfer these Terms of Service, by operation of law or otherwise, without Qwiki's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms of Service, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Qwiki may freely assign these Terms of Service.

Dispute Resolution

a) Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Qwiki in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Qwiki agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Qwiki are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

b) Exceptions. Notwithstanding subsection (a), we both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.

c) Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Qwiki will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Qwiki.

d) Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). Qwiki's address for Notice is: Qwiki, Inc., 113 Spring Street #3, New York, NY 10012. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but If we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Qwiki may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Qwiki shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any; provided that if our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Qwiki shall pay you the greater of (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, and (ii) the greatest amount offered by Qwiki in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award.

e) Fees. In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Qwiki will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $5,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York, provided that if the claim is for $5,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Qwiki for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

f) No class actions. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Qwiki agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

g) Modifications. In the event that Qwiki makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Qwiki's address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Qwiki's address for Notice, in which case your account with Qwiki shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject shall survive.

h) Enforceability. If only Subsection (f) of this Section or the entirety of this Section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in the "General" Section, below, shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.

General

These Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its principles of conflicts of law. To the extent that any lawsuit is permitted hereunder, each party expressly consents to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the Southern District of New York to resolve any dispute arising from these Terms of Service and waives any defense of inconvenient or improper forum. These Terms of Service do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. Neither party is authorized to assume or create any obligation or responsibility on behalf of, or in the name of, the other or to bind the other in any manner. Notices delivered under these Terms of Service must be given in writing (such as, via email) and will be effective when received. These Terms of Service (including the Content Policy, Publisher Terms of Service, and our Privacy Policy, and any other policies and guidelines promulgated by Qwiki from time to time) hereby, supersede all previous communications, understandings and agreements (whether oral or written). The headings and captions used in these Terms of Service are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting these Terms of Service. If any part of these Terms of Service is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Qwiki's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
