As of August 14, 2019
Please read the following terms of service ("Agreement" or "Terms of Service") before you install the Superego application or use any of the products or services we provide through our application, software or website (all of which are referred to collectively herein as the "Superego", "we," "us," or "our”). The Terms of Service constitute a binding legal agreement, which govern your use of Superego via any platform or device. By installing the Superego application, visiting our website or installing or using any services provided by Superego, you are accepting these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not install our application, access our website or use any of our products or services. This Agreement includes the following provisions:
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Superego allow you to provide monetary payments to content providers across devices and platforms to express appreciation for quality content. As a condition to your use of the Superego, you agree not to use Superego to infringe any intellectual property rights. We reserve the right, at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, to terminate the accounts of, and block access to Superego to, any users who infringe any copyrights or other intellectual property rights.
By participating in the Program or otherwise accessing or using the Website, you hereby acknowledge and agree that (a) Superego makes no representation, warranty, covenant or guarantee that any funds you tip to a Creator via the Website will be refunded in whole or in part, (b) given your financial situation, you will tip only those amounts on the Website that you can afford to. Tips made via the Website are philanthropic in nature and, as such, are not intended as, and cannot be considered as, an investment in a financial instrument or security. Tips made via the Website are not cancellable or refundable by the User.
Superego will hold amounts due and payable to Creators separate from Superego’s general funds, in a deposit account established to hold funds for the benefit of Content Providers. Superego will not use such amounts for Intertime’s general operating expenses; however, Superego reserves the right to retain (a) interest on funds while such funds are held in a User Funds Account. The process of disbursement to a Creator in a particular country may vary. Currency and other national or local regulations may require a different funding structure in some countries.
You acknowledge that providing Tips to Creators does not constitute a charitable donation, and therefore you are not eligible to receive a tax deduction for any payments provided via Superego.
If the content you’ve tipped is owned by an entity that is located in a country that is subject to embargo under the laws of the United States (or under similar laws applicable to you), we will not disperse tips to these entities and will instead split allocated tips among your other tipped Creators. We reserve the right to refuse disbursing tips to Creators. If done so, we will split allocated tips among your remaining tipped Creators and notify you of the reason why.
Your access to and use of Superego is subject to this Agreement and all applicable laws and regulations. You may not: (1) modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create any derivative works based on Superego; (2) distribute, license, transfer, or sell, in whole or in part, any of Superego or any derivative works thereof; (3) market, rent or lease Superego for a fee or charge, or use Superego to advertise or perform any commercial solicitation; (4 ) use Superego to promote or distribute in any way files that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer; (5) interfere with or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Superego, any transactions being offered in connection with the Superego or any other activities conducted by us, disrupt our website or any networks connected to Superego, or bypass any measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Superego; (6) use any robot, spider, scraper, or other automated means to access our website or proprietary work for any purpose without our prior written permission; (7) use the Superego to collect or harvest personal information about other users of the Superego; (8) impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity; (9) use the Superego, or any other services, products, or downloads available in connection with Superego for illegal purposes.
Usage of Superego services does not provide any license or other grant of right to use any Superego or third-party patent, copyright, trademark, service mark, trade secret or other intellectual property rights. You may be subject to civil and criminal penalties, including without limitation monetary damages, if you violate the terms of this Agreement or infringe any third party’s legal rights.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account. You may not share your password or other account access information with any other party, temporarily or permanently, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account, Registration Data or passwords, as the case may be. We reserve the right to refuse service and/or terminate user accounts in our sole discretion.
If you choose to submit any message, feedback or data, including, but not limited to, any ideas, comments, suggestions or questions regarding any product or service on Superego, such information shall be deemed to be non-confidential. We shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such information and shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute the information to others without limitation. Further, we shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing and marketing products and services incorporating such ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques. Superego enable users to share, save or post information or materials, or to communicate with or otherwise share information with other users or persons. You agree not to share, save, submit, publish, display, disseminate, or otherwise communicate any defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, threatening, offensive, indecent, illegal or otherwise objectionable material, or any material that violates any federal, state, or local law in the United States or anywhere else in the world. You are solely responsible for all information which you share, save, submit, publish, display, disseminate or otherwise communicate through Superego, even if a claim should arise after termination of service. You agree that all such content, messages and other communications shall not be deemed to be private or secure, and that any such content, messages and communications can be read by the operators and/or other agents of Superego, whether or not they are the intended recipients.
To use our service you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Local tax charges may vary depending on the Payment Method used. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each subscription period. The subscription fee will be charged to your last payment method. When you cancel, we will stop charging your account the following billing cycle. Each billing cycle is four weeks, so your access will continue for the remainder of the current four-week period. We do not issue refunds for subscriptions.
We reserve the right to charge for use of our services that are currently available free of charge. We will provide users with notice of any material change to the terms and conditions applicable to the subscription service, including any pricing changes, at least thirty days prior to such change taking effect. Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our service. We hope that you will continue using our service, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to use the service, you can delete your account at any time.
If we determine that you have clearly, seriously or repeatedly breached our Terms or Policies, we may suspend or permanently disable access to your account. Where we take such action we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review, unless doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or products; where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
Superego welcomes its Users' active participation. However, there may be occasions when a User becomes "inactive" for an extended period of time – i.e., a User does not Tip a Creator for an extended time period. Therefore, Superego has implemented a Website feature pursuant to which you may instruct Superego in advance as to how you wish any remaining balances in your account to be handled in the event your account were to become inactive for a period of 3 or more consecutive months – namely, whether in such a case of User inactivity, you (i) wish to automatically tip the same content providers as the last active cycle, i.e. tip the content providers who you had tipped the last cycle you were active or (ii) wish for Superego to accumulate tips (after expenses) to be dispersed next time you tip. If you have not selected a preference, we will automatically default you to option ii.
The content, products and services available via Superego may include materials from non-affiliated third parties. We may participate in joint marketing and other service offerings with third parties and our website contains links to third-party sites. Superego also integrates, only at your request, with third-party software applications that may provide you with an opportunity to install the Superego application or use the Superego from or through their websites or such third parties may request to access or use your Superego user account or other information so that they can customize the services that they provide to you. For example, if you are on a third-party website, you may be provided with the opportunity to install Superego. The third parties that contract with us are independent, and are not our agents. Such links are provided for your convenience only. We do not control, and are not responsible for, the content of, or products or services available through, any third-party websites, including without limitation the websites that offer videos, articles or other content that you choose to save to Superego. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating any third-party content. You understand and agree that we do not warrant and shall not be liable for any third-party materials or websites. You also agree that you will not use any third-party content or materials in a manner that would infringe or violate the rights of any other party and that we are not in any way responsible for any such use by you.
If you have developed a software application and are interested in integrating such application with the Superego, you must get approval. Please email email@example.com for additional information.
INTERTIMES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, OUR APPLICATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND WEBSITE) ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITH ALL FAULTS. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY, ADEQUACY, SUITABILITY, FUNCTIONALITY, AVAILABILITY, OR OPERATION OF THE INTERTIMES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR USE OF THE INTERTIMES, AND WE DO NOT WARRANT THE PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED THROUGH YOUR USE OF INTERTIMES. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR USE OF INTERTIMES AND FOR ANY LOSS OF OR ERRORS IN ANY DATA OR INFORMATION. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING THROUGH COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WE NEITHER WARRANT NOR REPRESENT THAT YOUR USE OF INTERTIMES WILL NOT INFRINGE THE RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTIES, NOR THAT INTERTIMES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR ACCESS OR USE, NOR THAT OPERATION OF INTERTIMES WILL BE ERROR FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN ADDITION, YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
THERE ARE INHERENT RISKS IN RELYING UPON, USING, OR RETRIEVING ANY INFORMATION FOUND ON THE INTERNET, AND WE URGE YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THESE RISKS BEFORE USING INTERTIMES OR ANY WEBSITE THAT PROVIDES YOU WITH ACCESS TO INTERTIMES. YOUR USE OF INTERTIMES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. NEITHER INTERTIMES NOR ANY OF ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATES, NOR ANY OF THEIR EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS, SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF DATA OR INFORMATION OF ANY KIND, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOST PROFITS, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, COST OF COVER OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE INTERTIMES TECHNOLOGIES, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to indemnify and hold Superego harmless Superego, its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, and their officers, directors, employees, agents, distributors and licensees, from and against any judgments, losses, deficiencies, damages, liabilities, costs, claims, demands, suits, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees and expenses) incurred in, arising out of or in any way related to your breach of this Agreement, your use of the Superego, or any of your other acts or omissions.
By using any of the Superego, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Service and any dispute of any kind that might arise between you and us.
ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF INTERTIMES WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO THIS AGREEMENT.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. AN ARBITRATOR, HOWEVER, MAY AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AS A COURT WOULD. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT, AND ALLOWS FOR MORE LIMITED DISCOVERY THAN IN COURT. THE ARBITRATOR WILL DECIDE ALL ISSUES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ISSUES RELATING TO THE SCOPE AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.
Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to any access or use of the Facebook Products for business or commercial purposes, the Terms (for any access or use of the Facebook Products for business or commercial purposes), or these Creator Terms shall not exceed the greater of one hundred dollars ($100) or the amount you have paid us in the past twelve months.
WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
We understand your concerns about privacy. We want you to understand what types of information we collect and what may happen to that information if you install the Superego, visit the Superego or use Superego.
You are not required to create a user account or provide any personal information in order to visit the Superego website. You are required to create a user account, however, to use our application. During registration, you are required to provide a name, password and valid email address.
If you choose to share any articles, videos, or other content with another person, we will ask you to provide a valid email address for that person. We may also ask you to provide your username and password for third party websites in order to access the articles and information published on such sites. We also collect information if you contact us for support or help, submit an application or otherwise communicate with us. The information which you supply to us enables us to customize and enhance the services we provide to you. In addition, it helps us communicate with you about our news, events, promotions and new products.
If you choose to subscribe to our subscription service, our third party payment processors will collect and handle your credit card and related payment information. Such third party processors’ use of your personal information is governed by their respective privacy policies.
In addition to the information that you provide to us when you register for a user account, we collect information about the URLs, titles and content of the web pages and other information you browse and tip. The types of information we collect includes your browser type, device type, time zone, language, and other information related to the manner in which you access Superego. If you are on a mobile device, we collect the advertising identifiers provided by Apple on iOS and by Google on Android. You can change this identifier in your device settings. We also collect information about your use of Superego so that we can provide our services. For example, as a part of providing Superego syncing features, we sync information about the items that you save and view within Superego so that your list, tags, scroll position, and other account and usage information may be synced across all of your devices.
In addition to the methods described above, we may also collect information using cookies or other technologies when you access our website or use Superego. You may decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features, you may be required to enter your password more frequently during a session, and you may be unable to install or use certain Superego Cookies and other technologies make our Superego easier to use and help us customize and personalize the services we provide based on your interests and activities.
We may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (individually or collectively "Pixel Tags") in connection with emails that we send to our users in order to collect usage data. We use Pixel Tags, other technologies and the information we collect to count users who have visited certain pages on our Website, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.
We use your personal information to respond to your requests and perform our contract with you. We may do this, for example, by using your contact information to respond to your inquiries, to provide customer support and to supply any products or services you have requested. In addition, if you choose to use Superego to share content with another person, we will use the recipient's email address or user account information to provide that service, but we will not use that email address for any other purpose.
We also have a legitimate business interest to operate and improve our services such as tipping process, creating feeds and making such content and recommendations available to you on any device that you use to access the Superego. We also use non-identifying, aggregated information to analyze the manner in which Superego are used, which also allows us to improve our services. The aggregated information we use includes the manner in which articles, videos, or content has been accessed, saved, tipped, and shared. We may use aggregated information to offer a list of top creators and content, to make recommendations to our users, to report on usage and trends, to improve the products and services that we offer, or to develop new products and services.
Except as set forth below, we do not share any personally identifiable information unless you expressly agree that we may do so.
If you choose to make the content you save publicly available, we may share that information with others in accordance with the options you select. In addition, if you choose to use Superego to share articles, videos, or other content with another person, we will send an email on your behalf to that person with a link to the content that you have chosen to share.
We also share aggregated, non-personal data and related usage information, which does not contain any personal information which can identify you or any other individual user, with third parties, including content providers, website operators, advertisers and publishers. For example, we may share with a content provider a list of the most tipped articles on Superego based on an analysis of aggregated, anonymous user data, but we would not share with such content provider any personal information regarding such users.
We may work with trusted third parties, including internal service providers, to facilitate one or more aspects of the products and services that we provide to you and to conduct research related to Internet usage, and we may provide some of your personal information directly to these third parties. For example, as discussed above, we may use a third party payment processor to process payments for our paid subscription service. These parties are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide to them for any other purpose other than those discussed above, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses.
In the event that we or certain of our assets are acquired, user information may be included among the transferred assets. Although we strive to protect the personal information of our users, we will release personal information if required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about you from a government or related to a lawsuit. We will notify you when we are asked to hand over your personally identifiable information in this way unless we are legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we will only release your personally identifiable information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary or appropriate under applicable law. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's request to disclose your information.
We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you services, manage our business or as required by law or contract.
We have agreements with third parties and have adopted other security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorized alteration of the information under our control or under the control of our service providers. Your personally identifiable information is protected by utilizing both online and offline security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your information is stored. Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain free from security issues. In the event of a security breach involving your personal information, we will make any legally required disclosures to you in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with the legitimate interests of law enforcement, or any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Superego. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your username, password, credit card information or national identification number in an unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
You can access, correct, or delete your personal information and export your data from your Superego Profile. You can also view and control which third party services, if any, you want to connect to your Interimes account.
As part of our default settings to share saved and recommended content, we send emails to our users. You may opt-out of receiving these, and updates on our service and your use, by using the unsubscribe feature on any of our email correspondence or from your account settings. We will try to communicate with you only according to your instructions, although it may take some time to process your request.
If you have questions about any of the provisions described above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the street address listed above.
