DataCrowd reserves the right to change any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and/or any Policies governing the Site, at any time, at its sole discretion. Any changes will be effective upon posting of the Agreement or Policies on the Site and may be made without any other notice of any kind. You are at all times responsible for reading and understanding each version of this Agreement and the Policies.

01. Registration

a. Registration: When you register with the Site or the App, you will be asked to provide us with, at a minimum, your name and a valid email address. Users may also be asked to provide demographic information and certain tax information upon request. You agree to provide us with true and accurate information, and to update that information to the extent it changes in any way. When registering or updating your information, you will not impersonate any person or use a name that you are not legally authorized to use.

b. Passwords and Account Use: You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy and security of your password. You may not disclose your password to any third party (other than third parties authorized by you to use your account) and are solely responsible for any use of or action taken under your password on the Site. If your password is compromised, you must change your password.

02. DataCrowds's Role

DataCrowd provides a venue for third party Clients and third party Users to enter into and complete transactions. DataCrowd and its Affiliates act strictly as a liaison between Clients and Users. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the Services, the ability of Users to provide the Services to Clients' satisfaction, or the ability of Clients to pay for Services. We are not responsible for the actions of any Client or User. We do not conduct any screening or other verification with respect to Clients or Users, nor do we provide any recommendations. As a Client or an User, you use the Site and the App at your own risk.

03. Your Use of the Site and App

a. Clients in General: Upon completion of Services to Clients' reasonable satisfaction, Clients must reward Users for their Services. As a Client, you agree that upon your approval of the Services performed by a User, rewards will be remitted to the User (as described in Section 4 below). After you have approved the applicable Services, you are not entitled to any refund of your reward for such Services. If a Client is not reasonably satisfied with the Services, the Client may reject the Services. As a Client, you will be charged a fee for your use of DataCrowd in connection with each request for Services. Please review the applicable DataCrowd Fees contained in the Policies for all applicable fees associated with your use of the Site pursuant to this Agreement. All fees are in U.S. dollars unless stated otherwise. The DataCrowd Fees may vary in the future. You agree to pay the amounts set forth in the DataCrowd Fees from time to time on the terms set forth herein and therein, and to check the fees and terms each time you use the Site. You acknowledge that Users are agreeing to perform Services for you as independent contractors and not employees. If you have any questions about your obligations to comply with local laws and regulations pursuant to Section 6, you should seek independent legal advice. Further, you agree that you will only accept work product from Users that has been submitted through the Site.

b. Users in General: You may only register once as a User with Shelfie. You may only access your User account from one device at any given time. Users may perform Services for any Client in accordance with the specifications submitted by the Client. However, if the Services do not meet the Client's reasonable satisfaction, DataCrowd may reject the Services and repost the specific request on behalf of the Client. As a User, the Client for whom you provide Services is your Client, and as such, you agree that the work product of any Services you perform is deemed a "work made for hire" for the benefit of the Client, and all ownership rights, including worldwide intellectual property rights, will vest with the Client immediately upon your performance of the Service. To the extent any such rights do not vest in Client under applicable law, you hereby assign or exclusively grant (without the right to any compensation) all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, to such work product to the Client. As an User you are performing Services for a Client in your personal capacity as an independent contractor and not as an employee of the Client or of DataCrowd. You specifically acknowledge and agree to the following: (i) you will not use robots, scripts or other automated methods to complete the Services; (ii) you will submit all work product through the App only, and not directly to a Client, or to DataCrowd; (iii) you will provide Clients for whom you perform Services with any information reasonably requested by them in connection with your performance of such Services; (iv) you are responsible for, and will, comply with all applicable laws and registration requirements, including those applicable to independent contractors and maximum working hours regulations; (v) this Agreement does not create an association, joint venture, partnership or franchise, employer/employee relationship between Users and Clients, or Users and DataCrowd; (vi) you will not represent yourself as an employee or agent of a Client or DataCrowd; (vii) you will not be entitled to any of the benefits that a Client or DataCrowd may make available to its employees, such as vacation pay, sick leave, insurance programs, including group health insurance or retirement benefits; and (viii) you are not eligible to recover worker's compensation benefits in the event of injury. If you have any questions about your obligations to comply with local laws and regulations pursuant to Section 5, you should seek independent legal advice.

c. Listing and Promotions Generally: As a Client or User, you may not sell, offer for sale, request, purchase, or provide any Service that violates applicable law or is prohibited by the Policies. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, DataCrowd will have the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the content, appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of the Site (including the right to redesign, modify, remove and alter the content, appearance, design, navigation, functionality, and other aspects of the Site and/or any page thereof and any element, aspect, portion or feature thereof, from time to time).

d. Information and Feedback: You must supply accurate and complete information for all Services in accordance with our data requirements, as may be designated by us from time to time, including in the Policies. You recognize and agree that DataCrowd will implement mechanisms allowing us and others to track your requests for, or your performance of, Services and rate your performance as a Client or User, and DataCrowd reserves the right to collect feedback regarding your performance and to post such feedback on the Site. You may not take any actions that may undermine the integrity of the feedback system. You agree that submission of any information, feedback, content, data or other materials (collectively, "Materials") is at your own risk, and thatnone of DataCrowd, its Affiliates, Clients or Users has any obligations (including without limitation obligations of confidentiality) with respect to such Materials. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to submit the Materials. You hereby grant to DataCrowd and its Affiliates a royaltyfree, nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute, adapt, modify, reformat, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially or noncommercially exploit in any manner, any and all Materials, and to sublicense the foregoing rights, in connection with the operation and maintenance of the Site. For avoidance of doubt, if you are a Client, and if you create any tests, specifications, criteria lists or other programs for use on the Site to evaluate or otherwise select Users, they will be considered Materials for purposes of this Agreement and may be used and/or referenced by us or other Clients and Users pursuant to the license granted above.

e. Customer Service. DataCrowd will be responsible for and will have sole discretion regarding all customer service issues relating to use of the Site, App and their features.

f. Disputes between Clients and Users. Your use of the Site and App is at your own risk. Because DataCrowd acts as a liaison between Clients and Users, DataCrowd will be involved in resolving any disputes between participants related to or arising out of the Services or any transaction, only to the level deemed necessary by DataCrowd.


4. Reward Service

DataCrowd or its Affiliates will process all rewards made by Clients to Users (the "Reward Service"). Client rewards made through the Reward Service are received by DataCrowd or its Affiliates on behalf of Users, and may be disbursed only in accordance with the terms outlined below.

a. Prepaid Jobs. Each Client must prepay for work they intend on acquiring through the Services by funding DataCrowd’s Prepaid Jobs ("Prepaid Jobs") with a credit card via PayPal or via funding a prepaid account. Prepaid Jobs are subject to the DataCrowd Prepaid Jobs Terms and Conditions. Prepaid Jobs are maintained in a single Prepaid Job account for you solely for use of the Services. The amount of Prepaid Jobs funded must be at least equal to the total amount that will be owed to Users upon completion and acceptance of the Services and any amounts payable to DataCrowd in connection with Client's use of the Site. If the Prepaid Jobs are purchased with proceeds from a bank account, the Prepaid Jobs may not be available for use for up to four (4) days before such funds are available for disbursement to an User's Reward Account (defined below). After Client's acceptance of the Services, the Reward Service will debit the amount owed to each User from the Client's Reward Account, and credit each User's Reward Account that amount.

b. Jobs on Credit. Clients may request to be billed for work they intend on acquiring through the Services. Jobs on Credit are subject to the DataCrowd Jobs on Credit Terms and Addendum. Purchase orders are required prior to jobs being processed with terms of 0% net 30. The amount of Jobs billed must be at least equal to the total amount that will be owed to Users upon completion and acceptance of the Services and any amounts payable to DataCrowd in connection with Client's use of the Site. After Client's acceptance of the Services, the Reward Service will debit the amount owed to each User from the Client's Reward Account, and credit each User's Reward Account that amount.

c. Disbursement of Funds to Users: When Users register with the App they are automatically registered with DataCrowd. A rewards account ("Rewards Account") will automatically be established in conjunction with their registration on the Site. Users may disburse funds from their Rewards Account by the following method, at their option: (i) to GiftCards. See our FAQs for more information. Funds will only be disbursed in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including without limitation the United States Patriot Act and the regulations of the Office of Foreign Assets Control. DataCrowd is under no obligation to disburse funds from an User’s Rewards Account more than two years after the original transaction date, if no request for such disbursement exists. After two (2) years a twenty (20) percent service fee per month will be assessed on the account. We reserve the right to cancel your Rewards Account for any reason.

d. Restrictions and Limitations: We reserve the right to terminate or suspend any Rewards Account, or to delay the availability of any Prepaid Jobs, transfer or disbursement of any amounts, in each case for any reason in our sole discretion, including, without limitation, if we believe that a Client or User is in violation of this Agreement. As a security measure, we reserve the right to restrict the transfer to Users of any amounts held in a Client's Prepaid Job account for up to three (3) Business Days (as defined below) following any purchase. Other than a credit to an User's Rewards Account for Services rendered by such User, amounts held in Rewards Accounts cannot be transferred to other Clients or Users. If DataCrowd terminates this Agreement because you have violated the Policies then (i) any Services that have been completed by Users but not yet accepted by you will be deemed accepted and the applicable rewards will be remitted to the Users and deducted from your Prepaid JOBS balance and (ii) your remaining Prepaid Jobs balance (if any) will become the property of DataCrowd.

e. Our Liability: We (and our Affiliates) act only in the capacity of a rewards processor in facilitating the transactions between Clients and Users, and are not otherwise involved in the actual transactions. We will only be responsible for initiating purchases of Prepaid Jobs and the transfers or disbursements at the direction of Clients and Users. We will be entitled to rely on the instructions of Clients and Users without any further inquiry or liability whatsoever. We will not be liable if we are not able to complete a transaction for any reason, including, but not limited to,

·If any system or equipment was not working properly and you knew or had been advised about the breakdown before you initiated the transaction;

·If you do not have enough available funds in your Prepaid Job account or in your Rewards Account to complete the applicable transaction

·If circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, power outages, fire, flood, mechanical or systems failure) prevent the proper execution of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions we have taken;

·If your transaction is intercepted by legal process or other encumbrances restricting transfer, or your participation in the Site has been terminated or suspended for security purposes;

·If we are unable to confirm your identity or have reason to believe that the transfer requested is unauthorized; or

·If you have not provided us with correct, current and complete information.

f. Statements and Account Balances: All purchase of any Prepaid Jobs, making rewards to an User or other rewards transaction occurring with respect to a Rewards Account will be reflected on the Site. In addition, you may access your transaction information (your "Activity History") online in the "Clients," and "View Transaction History" (or equivalent) areas of the Site at any time. You may access this feature only with a browser that is compatible with the Service, including any security features that are part of the Service. Interest will not be paid on Prepaid Jobs or any amounts held in Rewards Accounts.

g. Transaction Errors: If you believe that any reward transaction initiated by us (or our agent) is erroneous, or if you need more information about any such transaction, you should contact us as soon as possible.

05. Compliance with Laws

a. Taxes: You agree that it is your responsibility to determine any and all taxes and duties, including without limitation, sales, use, transfer, value added, withholding and other taxes and/or duties assessed, incurred or required to be collected, paid or withheld for any reason in connection with any request for, or performance of Services, or your use of the Site, or otherwise in connection with any action, inaction or omission of you or any of affiliate of yours, or any of your or their respective employees, agents, contractors or representatives ("Taxes") and to collect, withhold, report, and remit correct taxes to the appropriate tax authority, and to otherwise be responsible for the collection and payment of any and all Taxes.

DataCrowd Privacy Notice

Updated: August 06, 2014

DataCrowd understands that you are concerned about how your personal information is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will be careful and sensible with your information. This notice describes the Privacy Policy applicable to DataCrowd LLC and its services. By visiting the DataCrowd Website and utilizing the Application, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

01. What Personal Information About Users Does DataCrowd and Shelfie Gather?

The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve your experience in the Application. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Provide:

We receive and store any information you enter on the DataCrowd website, successor websites, App or give us in any other way. Specifically, to register with the DataCrowd Site and App, you must provide us your name and email. You may also be required to provide other personal information before or after completion of work such as credit card information, demographic information, or tax information. You can choose not to provide certain information, however, as a result you might not be able to participate in all work or incorporate some of the application. We use the information that you provide for ensuring that you receive information specific to you, responding to your requests, customizing the Site for you, improving our Site, and communicating with you.

Automatic Information:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses the DataCrowd Site.

Email Communications:

By registering on the DataCrowd Site and App, you will receive emails from DataCrowd and/or its Affiliates. As a DataCrowd Site participant, it will be necessary for us to communicate with you to provide essential operational, status and transaction updates as well as notices in connection with your account and other information relevant to your participation and use of the Site (collectively Core Communications). You may not opt out of such Core Communications, and you agree to your receipt of Core Communications via email and/or other communication methods provided by you in your account registration. If we send noncore Communications such as newsletters we will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe to them.

02. Does DataCrowd Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. Information collected from jobs (taking “Shelfies”) is sold to Clients.

Consent:

By accepting the DataCrowd Participation Agreement, you expressly consent to our use of your information as outlined in this Privacy Notice.

Participants:

As a Client or User of services through the DataCrowd Site and Shelfie App, we may share certain information in order to facilitate the service relationship and to improve the Site and App.

Users:

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include analyzing data, processing rewards, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Promotional Offers:

We may send offers to selected groups of Shelfie users on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your personal information. If you do not want to receive such offers, we will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe to them.

Business Transfers:

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy additional services or business units. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any preexisting Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the user consents otherwise). Also, in the event that DataCrowd or substantially all of its assets are acquired, user information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of DataCrowd and Others:

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Participation Agreement and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of DataCrowd, our users, or others. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from users for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

03. Participation Agreement, Notices and Revisions

If you choose to visit DataCrowd, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Notice and our Participation Agreement, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Delaware. If you have any concern about privacy at DataCrowd, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Participation Agreement will change also. We may email periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of user information collected in the past without the consent of affected users.

04. How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
