Last Updated on: Nov 6th, 2018

These terms and conditions (this “Agreement”) govern the relationship between Jewel Studio Co. (“BeTickled”, “we”, “our” or “us”), a Delaware corporation, and you (“Respondent”, “you” or “your”), concerning any surveys and polls that are made available to you by us or on our behalf (each a “Survey”), through our BeTickled app, on our betickled.com website, or sent through email, mobile text message, through a third-party site or other means (the app and those websites together are the “Sites”).

  1. Provision of the Sites and Responding to Surveys
    • BeTickled shall issue Respondents with a Survey. Respondents will be invited to complete the survey and may, at the discretion of BeTickled, receive an incentive in exchange for completing the Survey fully and in accordance with the requirements of the Survey and this Agreement (an “Incentive”). Incentives may include entry to a prize draw, free membership to BeTickled app for a certain time period, membership fee discounts to BeTickled app, or some other incentive which BeTickled deems appropriate at its sole discretion.
    • You must claim your incentives within 30 days from notification by us after completion of survey or you forfeit all rights to such incentives immediately at the end of 30 day period and BeTickled shall declare any accumulated or offered Incentives due to you as null and void, and prevent you from receiving them. We would notify you within reasonable time of your qualification to such incentives using email provided to us by you in the survey form.
    • We process information about you in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You agree to ensure that all data or information you provide to us shall be accurate and complete.
    • BeTickled reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify, suspend, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, a Survey or the Sites or any part thereof, or Respondent’s access to any of them, including where an Incentive has been offered.
    • Where the Respondent breaches any provision of this Agreement, BeTickled may declare any accumulated or offered Incentives due to you as null and void, and prevent you from receiving them.
    • Respondent acknowledges and agrees that BeTickled is not obliged to maintain the availability of the Sites or Surveys. BeTickled will use reasonable endeavors to process your completed Surveys, but may be prevented from doing so by matters beyond its control that may result in the loss or deletion of, or failure to receive, process, or store any Respondent Content (including Survey or poll results or responses): Respondent Content is defined in section below.

  5. Limit on Liability
    • The material contained in Surveys, displayed on our Sites or otherwise supplied to you is provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties as to its accuracy. We do not warrant that the functions contained in the Sites or any materials or content contained therein will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Sites or the servers that deliver the Sites will be corrected, or that the Sites or those servers are made available free of viruses or other harmful components.
    • We are not obliged to provide you with Surveys to participate in or contribute to, and we have the absolute right to exclude you from participation in any Survey.
    • Our maximum liability to you in respect of any Survey is the particular Incentive that we agree to provide to you for your participation in that Survey. Only properly and fully completed Surveys that meet the requirements of this Agreement and the relevant Survey will qualify for such an Incentive. The Incentive will be subject to all availability and other qualifications that we notify to you at the time.
    • We will not be liable to you if we are delayed in or prevented from complying with our obligations under this Agreement by anything you should do or should have done, or as a result of events or things that we cannot reasonably control.
    • We are not liable for business losses. So, we won’t have liability to you for any loss of revenue (other than Incentives owed to you) or profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

  6. Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
    • This Agreement (and any non-contractual obligations relating to or connected with this Agreement) is governed by California law. You and we each agree that the California courts have the jurisdiction for any disputes that arise in connection with this Agreement.

  7. Severability and Waiver
    • If any of these terms of use are determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any state or country in which these terms of use are intended to be effective, then to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from these terms of use and the remaining terms shall survive and continue to be binding and enforceable.
    • Any waiver by us in writing of any of your obligations hereunder, or any failure to insist upon strict compliance with any obligation shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to any subsequent or other failure of yours.

  8. Assignment
    • Respondent may not assign this Agreement without BeTickled’s prior written consent, which may be withheld in BeTickled’s sole discretion. BeTickled may assign this Agreement at any time to the successor in interest in connection with a merger, consolidation or for any corporate reorganization of BeTickled, but will not do so in such a way as to reduce any guarantees you are given under this Agreement.

  9. Entire Agreement
    • This Agreement is intended to contain your entire agreement with us relating to Surveys and Sites; we believe it to be fair and reasonable. It replaces all earlier agreements and understandings with you relating to them, except for any fraud or fraudulent representation by either of us.
