Sponsor Terms or Use

These Terms were last modified July 1st, 2015

1. About Us and Our Services

FeverSocial Limited, and its related companies, collectively, we call “FeverSocial”, provides software, websites and other online services to enable its Sponsors to operate sweepstakes, contests, Promotions and other market data gathering activities, collectively called Promotions or Services, through various forms of social media (Sites). FeverSocial Promotion Software and Services are designed to allow Sponsors to gather personally identifiable information from individuals who choose to enter a particular Promotion together with anonymous data regarding the Promotion itself. Individuals who participate in Promotions or Service are called Entrants or Users. FeverSocial gathers this data for use by the Sponsors for various marketing purposes, including targeted marketing of its products.  To learn more about FeverSocial’s privacy policy, please visit http://feversocial.com/privacy-policy.

1.2 Fees; Charges; Taxes. Fees and any other charges for the use of FeverSocial Services are described on the Site at: http://feversocial.com/pricing. Fees may change from time to time. If we change them, we will give you at least 30 days’ notice before implementing the change. If they do change, your continued use of our Services after the change indicates your agreement with the new fees and charges after the effective date of the change. Any change to fees and other charges will not be applicable to the billing period in which the change occurs. You are responsible for all taxes applicable to the fees, if any, in any applicable jurisdiction.

Fees paid to FeverSocial for products and service offered on the Site, unless otherwise specified in writing, are non-refundable. If your use of the Site is terminated by us because of your breach of these Terms, we will retain fees and charges paid by you for your use of the Site. If we terminate your use of the Site for any reason other than your breach of these Terms, we will refund your subscription fee on a pro rata basis.

2. About You

If you register for an account with FeverSocial, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information as may be prompted by any registration forms we provide (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of your password; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to FeverSocial, and to keep Registration Data accurate, current and complete; and (d) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the Registration Data and any other information you provide to FeverSocial. You are responsible for all activity on your FeverSocial account, and for all charges incurred by your FeverSocial account.

3. Users and Entrants

Users and Entrants to Promotions and Services are bound by the contents of the FeverSocial User Agreement (http://feversocial.com/user-terms) which also specifies rules of conduct to be followed by FeverSocial and its Sponsors in order that we and you can take advantage of our contractual rights specified in the FeverSocial User Agreement. While you may provide your own Website’s terms of service agreements for Users and Entrants, you acknowledge you have read and understood the FeverSocial User Agreement and that anyone utilizing FeverSocial software, websites and other online services to access Sponsor’s websites is also covered by the Terms of Service contained in the FeverSocial User Agreement.

4. Our Technology and Data Usage

4.1 FeverSocial collects personally identifiable information for the use of its client Sponsor and to assist the Sponsor in the administration of the Promotions. Such use may include notifications related to the Promotion, assistance to the Sponsors with prize fulfillment and marketing analysis, submission of information to third-parties selected by the Sponsor. FeverSocial limits access to all personally identifiable information gathered within its organization and data is never shared outside of the company, with the exception of the Sponsor of the Promotion and designated administrators of the Sponsor, or to comply with governmental or legal requests, except via direct authorization by the Client in the case of a joint sponsorship marketing or Promotions campaign or other Client Sponsor authorized activity. Personally identifiable information collected from different Sponsor Promotions is never shared with anyone other than the Sponsor on whose behalf the information was collected, (except as limited above) and the information belongs to that Sponsor and is to be used solely in accordance with that particular Sponsor’s Privacy Policy. If individual Users or Entrants desire to “opt out” of the receiving marketing or other information from your Website that User or Entrant’s action will be handled in accordance with your Privacy Policy. FeverSocial requires, and you agree, to use the data which FeverSocial collects on your behalf in accordance with generally accepted privacy standards for both offline and online data which includes your provision of an “opt out” method for individuals who have provided personally identifiable information. You are responsible to secure and maintain the data FeverSocial collects on your behalf when such data is in your possession.

4.2 FeverSocial’s proprietary Promotion technology also has the ability to collect data other than personally identifiable information for various kinds of Promotions it facilitates online. FeverSocial may collect information about the User/Entrant’s computer configuration, such as browser type, operating system, or ISP domain name. FeverSocial may collect information about the site the User/Entrant last visited prior to the Promotion or about User/Entrant activity during its visit to the Promotion site. This information may be used by FeverSocial to administer the technical and operational aspects of this site, and may include using User/Entrant IP address to help diagnose problems with our server. User/Entrant IP addresses may also be used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. FeverSocial may use a cookie, a piece of data stored on the User’s hard drive containing information about the User, to assist in performing some or all of these activities and also to limit Entrant’s ability to play a Promotion more times than allowed, if such a restriction applies to your Promotion.

4.3 From time to time, you and FeverSocial may agree to allow FeverSocial to offer Entrants to a Promotion an opportunity to “opt-in” to receiving marketing information from FeverSocial and third party Sponsors. Typically, your agreement to allow third party Sponsors to receive-participate in Promotions will require you be granted reciprocity to participate in that Sponsor’s Promotions. In such cases, on the Promotion registration page, a FeverSocial “opt-in” question will appear clearly explaining to potential Entrants and Users that by checking the box they will be agreeing to share their personally identifiable information with FeverSocial for such limited purposes. When individuals “opt-in” to receive information from FeverSocial, they are agreeing to receive email and other notices from FeverSocial, including marketing messages, surveys, special offers and notices about other Promotions. Such notices may come from FeverSocial itself or its Sponsors, including you.

4.4 You are forbidden from requesting anyone to submit personal medical information, social security/personal identification information, payment card details, or financial information in FeverSocial Promotions or Services.

5. Promotions and Media

Sponsors distribute Promotions and other media utilizing tools/ services offered on the Sites by FeverSocial and Entrants and Users may enter or engage with such Promotions and media. As a Sponsor, you acknowledge and agree that FeverSocial merely facilitates the distribution of Promotions and media and understand that the Site provides no safeguards ensuring that your Promotions and media comply with any law, rule, regulation or policy. You are responsible for Promotions and media distributed through the Site and for ensuring that such Promotions and media comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. You are responsible to provide the official rules of the Promotion including any applicable privacy policy, and any additional information or links provided in the Sponsor’s terms of use. Entrants are required to agree to the Sponsor’s terms of use including all linked terms, conditions, and policies before entering any Promotion. You acknowledge that FeverSocial is not responsible or liable for the failure of any User or Entrant, (or any third-party) to comply with the rules, terms, conditions, policies, and applicable laws, rules, or regulations governing any of your Promotions. You acknowledge and agree that FeverSocial is not liable for the content of any Promotion or media distributed through your Site. In the event that Users provide you with personally identifiable information, you acknowledge and agree that FeverSocial is not responsible or liable for Sponsor’s use or distribution of information provided by Users. You further agree to hold harmless FeverSocial and its parent companies, affiliates, and subsidiaries; and their respective officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, representatives, professional advisors, and contractors from any and all claims, losses, liability, damages and/or costs (including attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from your use of the Service. Your agreement to hold us harmless includes, without limitation, all of your claims related to the posting or removal of Content, User Content, or entries to or from the Site.

6. Intellectual Property Rights

6.1 The content on the Website and the Services, except all User Submissions (as defined below), including without limitation, the text, software, scripts, graphics, pictures, photos, sounds, music, videos, interactive features and the like (“Content”) and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein (“Marks”), are either owned by or licensed to FeverSocial or the Sponsors, and are subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under international laws and conventions. FeverSocial reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Website and its Content. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Content other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of User Submissions obtained through the Website for any commercial purposes.

6.1 FeverSocial will endeavor to enforce your intellectual property rights and copyright protections from infringement by Users and Entrants as set out in the Terms of Service of the FeverSocial User Agreement but you recognize FeverSocial has limited ability to do so. FeverSocial will process and investigate proper notices of alleged copyright or other intellectual property infringement related to your Content on its websites or servers and will respond appropriately, following the guidelines of the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act and other applicable intellectual property laws. Where appropriate, and regardless of the merits of the alleged infringement, our response may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice from you, or about your site, we may notify the owner or administrator of the affected Site or Content so that he or she can make a counter notification. FeverSocial will, following appropriate investigation, terminate or disable access by repeat infringers. Claims of alleged copyright or other intellectual property infringement must be in writing and directed to FeverSocial’s designated agent.

FeverSocial’s designated agent may be contacted at:

7. FeverSocial’s and Third Parties’ Websites and Services

7.1 These provisions for Service apply to all Users and Entrants of the FeverSocial websites and/ or the Sponsor’s services and websites, collectively, the Sites, including Users who are also contributors of user submitted content, information, and other materials or services on the websites and/or the services.

7.2 Promotion content may contain links to Sponsor websites and/or third party websites that are not owned or controlled by FeverSocial and, in order to access some features of the Promotion which are provided by, with or through a Sponsor or third party, Users and Entrants may have to create an account with such Sponsor or third party and/or enter into a separate commercial relationship with such entity. Users and Entrants are informed that FeverSocial has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, terms of use, privacy policies, or practices of any Sponsor’s or third party’s websites or services. Users and Entrants are also informed that, in addition, FeverSocial is not able to censor or edit the content of any third party website or service, and its ability to control the content of a Sponsor’s website is limited by the terms of our Subscription Agreement with you. Accordingly, we encourage Users and Entrants to be aware when they access some features of a Website or Services which are provided by, with or through a Sponsor or a third party, to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third party’s website and service that they access. You agree to undertake these responsibilities for maintaining the content of your Promotion Website, to comply with Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations for advertising and marketing on the Internet and to monitor the content of any social media that you link to your website.

8. User and Entrant Submissions

8.1 Through its Website, FeverSocial supports the submission by Entrants, Users and other users of content, which may include videos, text, graphics, pictures, photos, or other communications (collectively, “User Submissions”), and also supports the hosting, sharing, and/or publishing of such User Submissions. To the extent your Site accepts User Content it is with the understanding the User is responsible for its own User Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. In connection with User Submissions, Users affirm, represent, and warrant that: (a) Users own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize FeverSocial to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all User Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the User Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Website and these Terms of Service; and (b) Users have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the User Submission to use the name and likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person included in a User Submission in order to enable inclusion and use of the User Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Website and the Promotions and Services. FeverSocial cannot and does not represent User submissions will comply with such provisions and FeverSocial does not have the ability to ensure such compliance.

8.2 You understand that when using the Website and/or the Services, you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that FeverSocial is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Submissions. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against FeverSocial with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold FeverSocial, its owners/operators, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the Site.

9. Providing a Reliable and Secure Service

9.1 We strive to maintain a reliable and secure environment for your Promotion activities. However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable; the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use the Site, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability. In particular, Sponsors who choose to accept information on this Site or pay for Services offered through this Site, accept these risks to the security of that information.

9.2 Instantaneous traffic-the Sponsor is allocated a peak traffic of 100 concurrent users for all promotions at any given time. If the Sponsor’s promotion causes disruption to FeverSocial’s platform due to high instantaneous traffic, FeverSocial reserves the right to pause the promotion(s) without the Sponsor’s consent. If you anticipate instantaneous traffic (ie due to your large fan base or media ad purchase) higher than the allocation, please contact us at least five working days in advance to discuss support plans and fees.

10. Links to Other Sites

The Site contains links to third-party Web sites (“Third-Party Sites”) and third-party content (“Third-Party Content”) as a service to those interested in this information. Third Party Sites include social network platforms, User, Entrant and Sponsor sites, payment processors and other payment intermediaries that you may use in connection with your use of the Site. If you use links to Third-Party Sites, any Third- Party Content or service provided there are at your own risk. FeverSocial does not monitor or have any control over, and makes no claim or representation regarding, Third-Party Content or Third-Party Sites. FeverSocial provides these links only as a convenience, and a link to a Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content does not imply FeverSocial’s endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content. FeverSocial accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of, Third-Party Content, Third-Party Sites, or Web sites linking to the Site. When you leave the Site, our terms and policies are no longer applicable. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third-Party Site, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third-party.

13. Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless FeverSocial from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims and proceedings arising out of your use of the Site, from your Agent(s)’ use of the Site and from the use of the Site by any person to whom you give access to your account (such as staff), including any Sponsor provided Content that infringes the rights of any third-party, including the intellectual property rights of any third-party.

14. Applicable Law and Venue

PLEASE NOTE: This Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute. The Site is controlled by FeverSocial Limited, a Hong Kong registered company. You and FeverSocial both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to the Site. Therefore, you and FeverSocial explicitly agree that all disputes, claims or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site will be governed by the laws of Hong Kong. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms; (b) the Site or Content; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or Promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Site or Content (collectively, a “Claim”) will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (1) claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (2) claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to Promotions or advertising); (3) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and (4) claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

Sponsors who access or use the Service from foreign jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of that foreign jurisdiction, including, but not limited to those related to sponsoring contests, drawings, sweepstakes or other forms of Promotions found on the websites.

15. Termination/Modification

FeverSocial reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, or any policy or guideline of the Services, at any time and in its sole discretion. If we do so, we will notify you by means identified in this Agreement. If you do not agree with the changes, you can cancel your account with us without further obligation, except any amount due, if applicable. Unless otherwise specified, any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the FeverSocial Website, and your continued use of the Services after such time will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. You should, from time to time, review the Agreement and any policies and documents incorporated in them to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of our Services. The Agreement will always show the “last modified” date at the top. If you do not agree to any amended Agreement, you must stop using the Services. If you have any questions about the Agreement, please email us at Sponsor Support at support@FeverSocial.com.

Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, FeverSocial reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your right to use or access the Site, or any portion thereof; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Site or Content; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Site or Content.

16. Inactive Accounts; Termination of Agreement

You and FeverSocial may terminate this Agreement and your use of the Site at any time. If you terminate your use of the Site, if applicable, you must pay the fees applicable for the balance of the then current billing period. When your FeverSocial account is terminated, your Content may, shortly thereafter, not appear on the Site. You acknowledge and agree that FeverSocial has no obligation to migrate or provide assistance in migration of data from the Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, FeverSocial support may help Sponsors with the transfer of any stored data upon request. After thirty (30) days from the date of termination, FeverSocial takes no responsibility for stored data and reserves the right to delete all remaining data. If these provisions expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 5, 12, 13 and 14 contain explicit provisions limiting and shifting FeverSocial’s liabilities and any representation or warranty you make in this Agreement shall survive indefinitely.

17. General Terms

17.1 Notification Procedures and Changes to these Terms. FeverSocial may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, “push” mobile notification, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by FeverSocial in our sole discretion. FeverSocial reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms and our Privacy Policy. FeverSocial may, in its sole discretion, modify or update these Terms from time to time, and so you should review this page periodically.

17.3 Entire Agreement/Severability. These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with FeverSocial in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and FeverSocial concerning the Service. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.

17.4 No Waiver. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and FeverSocial’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
