Preciate’s free services are offered exclusively to individuals who have cell phones within countries we have activated for service. Preciate, Inc. is the controller of the personal data provided to Preciate, Inc. through any of its websites, feedback channels and within the Preciate app.

 

Eligibility of Use

To use Preciate’s Services, you agree that you have not been banned or restricted from using the Preciate App or any of its Services and you are the older of 16 years or the minimum age of local law which would allow Preciate to lawfully provide its Services to you without parental consent.  This is inclusive of the use of personal information. Additionally, creating a profile on behalf of others or creating accounts with false information is strictly forbidden.

 

Preciate Profile

Registered Members have profiles on the Preciate app. You agree that you are responsible for activity on your profile unless you contact Preciate and report fraud or close your account.  You further agree that to help ensure the safety of your profile, you will choose a strong password which you will not share with others. Additionally, you will not transfer any part of your account whether to another individual or to an entity.

 

Communication to You by Preciate

You agree that we will communicate with you within the app, via push notifications (if enabled), via SMS text or via other contact information you provide to Preciate. You agree that it is your responsibility to ensure your contact information is kept accurate, for instance your cell phone number is changed if necessary in order for Preciate to keep you informed of material changes to this agreement and the Privacy Policy.

 

Communication Between You and Others

Preciate allows you to review the recognitions you have both sent and received as well as the validations you have both sent and requested. All of your recognition badges, whether sent or received, are made public to be seen by Registered Members, Non-registered Members and Preciate staff.  Any free text provided in recognitions and validations given to you, you may keep private. Any free text in recognitions and validations provided by you may be made public at the recipient’s full discretion. Once you have given a badge or sent free text, you acknowledge that you have no right of ownership of the content.

 

Content

You agree that you will only provide content, whether about yourself or others, that is truthful and you will not provide content that will violate the privacy of others or the intellectual property rights of any individual or entity.

Preciate reserves the right to remove any content it deems, at its sole discretion, objectionable or harmful to another individual or the Preciate network.

Preciate reserves the right to reformat or translate any information within the app.

While you own the content of your record of achievements and the content you submit to your profile, you do not own the content that you create about others. You grant Preciate and our affiliates a worldwide non-exclusive, transferable license to use, copy, distribute, publish and analyze your content and any content you provide to the application (whether or not you own it) without compensation or further notice.  

That said, there are limitations to these licenses as follows:

  1. You may end the license for any specific free text written about you by keeping it private within the app.

  2. You may close your account at any time by contacting feedback@preciate.org, however this exception is null and void where (1) the content was already accessed by a third party and (2) the content retention is required for compliance or legal reasons

Any feedback or communication you have with Preciate will be recorded and you agree that it may be shared with others without any consideration or compensation to you.

 

Service Standards

You acknowledge that Preciate may change or discontinue any of its Services at any time and Preciate further does not guarantee the storage of your information or the continued display of your information, your profile or your record of achievements. Preciate is not obligated, except to the extent required by law, to provide you with a copy of the content that you or others provide.

 

Bad Actors

You agree that Preciate is not responsible for others’ content or information and Preciate is not always able to prevent bad actors within our Services.  You acknowledge and agree that Preciate is not responsible for such bad actors or their actions.

 

Other Apps

By connecting with the Preciate app, you are authorizing the use of third-party apps or sites that Preciate has deemed necessary to provide its Services. These third-party apps and sites have their own legal terms and privacy policies and were chosen, in part, because their philosophy on Terms of Use and Privacy are similar to Preciate’s. Except to the limited extent it may be required by applicable law, Preciate is not responsible for these other sites and apps – use these at your own risk. Please see our Privacy Policy.

 

Rights of Use

Preciate reserves the right to limit or terminate your use of any of its Services, including the number of recognitions you may give or receive, the number of validations you may request or the number or names of Moments you may create. Preciate reserves the right to restrict, suspend, or terminate your account entirely if Preciate believes that you may be in breach of this Contract or any applicable law or are using the Services for ill-gain or with the objective or effect of causing harm to an individual or entity.

 

Intellectual Property Rights

Preciate reserves all of its intellectual property rights in the Services, logos, trademarks and content. Using the Preciate app or interacting with any of its websites does not grant you any right of ownership to our content or intellectual property.

 

Recommendations

We will use the information and data that you and others provide, as well as information about your use of Preciate, to make recommendations for content and features that may be useful to you. For example, we use data and information about you to recommend participating in specific “Moments.”  Completing your profile and keeping it accurate and up-to-date helps us to make these recommendations more relevant to you.

WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY OF DATA, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT); (B) DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR ERRORS, AND (C) PROVIDE THE SERVICE (INCLUDING CONTENT AND INFORMATION) ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.

SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW CERTAIN DISCLAIMERS, SO SOME OR ALL OF THESE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

OFFENSIVE OR DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS, DOWN TIME OR LOSS, USE OF, OR CHANGES TO, YOUR INFORMATION OR CONTENT).

THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS PART OF THE BASIS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND PRECIATE AND SHALL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS OF LIABILITY (E.G. WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, LAW) AND EVEN IF PRECIATE AND THOSE THAT PRECIATE WORKS WITH TO PROVIDE ITS SERVICES HAVE BEEN TOLD OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF THESE REMEDIES FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THESE LIMITS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

You and Preciate agree that the laws of the State of Texas, U.S.A., excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services. You and Preciate both agree that all claims and disputes can be litigated only in the federal or state courts in Dallas County, Texas, USA and you and Preciate each agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts.

If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you agree to allow the severing of that portion of the Contract and the other sections of the Contract remain in tact and in force.

This Contract is the only agreement between you and Preciate regarding the Services and supersedes all prior written or verbal agreements for the Services.

Lack of effort to enforce any section of this Contract is not a waiver of of Preciate’s right to enforce such section. You may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your Registered User status) to anyone without Preciate’s express written consent. However, you agree that Preciate may assign this Contract to its affiliates or a party that acquires Preciate, Inc. without your consent.
