Playio Terms of Service
Updated 2023. 01. 26
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Please read these terms and conditions (this “Agreement” or these “Terms”) carefully. This Agreement is effective when the User continues with the Playio Service during the Playio account creation process by using one of the following methods: email, Google, or Facebook. By doing so, the User agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
The Services offered by Playio under the Terms consist of the Playio website and the mobile application (the "App"), which offers rewards to Users in exchange for downloading, reviewing, and/or using games suggested in the App (the "Services").
ACCOUNT & ELIGIBILITY
Some of the Services require that you sign up for a User account. Only one (1) User account may be set up per User. Only users 12 years or older are permitted to register for a User account. Transferring or selling a User account to third parties for their own purposes is not permitted. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (a) all information you submit to Playio are truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of all such information; (c) you will uphold and respect these Terms at all times; (d) your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation; (e) you will safeguard your account information, supervise it, and be completely responsible for any use of Account by you and anyone other than you. Your account may be deleted without warning at Playio’s sole discretion if we believe that you violate any of these Terms.
Some of the Services that we provide require that you enable the "Display of Other Apps" option. Enabling this option will allow us to better understand the types of games you prefer to play so that we can suggest to you other similar games. You will receive a notification if you need to enable this option.
Some of our Services that we provide allow for a “Guest” or “Continue as Guest” option allowing restricted access to the Service. We reserve the right to modify restrictions applied to certain features when accessing the Service through a Guest option. You will not have full, unrestricted access to all features of the Service without completing a sign up for a User account.
RULES OF USER CONDUCT
Our App contains a social feature allowing the User to interact with other User(s). All Users are subject to our Community Guidelines detailing the rules of user conduct with respect to interacting with other Users on our App. Playio reserves the right to restrict User access to the social feature or indefinitely ban a User account for violation of our Community Guidelines.
The User may only set up one account in the App. It is prohibited to create multiple accounts or transfer or sell a User account to third parties. You are not allowed to use a virtual private network (“VPN”), proxy or any other means to obscure the true source of traffic when using the Services. You are not allowed to use any other electronic means such as an internet bot or web robot (“Bot”) to generate automated views, clicks or conversions or employing any misleading practices such as repeated manual clicks to artificially inflate user activity and/or revenues when using the Services. Any User activity that uses a VPN, proxy or Bot will be considered as fraudulent activity and will be blocked by our fraud prevention system. The use of a VPN, proxy or Bot can cause your device to be permanently blacklisted and your User account to be either suspended or terminated.
Playio reserves the right to indefinitely ban any user found to be using an auto-clicker program or any similar software that allows a user to falsify data relating to their phone's input, or that allows them to appear to be using their phone when in reality they have left it idle.
Playio reserves the right to indefinitely ban any user found to be accessing the application through an emulator of any kind, regardless of the platform on which the emulator is being used.
Playio reserves the right to ban any account associated with software that can be used to modify games, or software that can unlock in-game content for free that would otherwise need to be purchased.
Playio reserves the right to ban any account associated with disposable email addresses that automatically forward messages to an alternate address, or that can automatically visit and open verification links that are sent to them.
Playio reserves the right to nullify all Gems earned on any account that has been banned, and to disable the redemption of rewards on all banned accounts, regardless of the reason for which the account was banned.
Playio reserves the right to indefinitely ban any user found to be using a rooted device or any device for which the user has been granted root access or privileged control. Rooted devices are not supported devices and may at any time be blocked from us.
Playio reserves the right to reject any gift card purchase request issued from an account associated with a rooted device, or from any account banned for fraudulent activity.
Playio reserves the right to permanently ban any user account created by an individual under the age of 18.
Playio reserves the right to ban any account that appears to be using, downloading or accessing the app fraudulently. This includes but is not limited to users who download the App through a means other than the Google Play store, users with privileged control over their devices, users with suspicious third-party firmware on their device, users manipulating their IP address, users unable to complete the face verification or phone verification processes for fraud verification purposes, users using software that makes them appear active when they are idle, users accessing the app from an emulator of any kind, or any user attempting to fraudulently earn Gems through any means other than playing games.
It is prohibited to access the Playio application on any device other than an Android mobile phone or tablet and doing so can result in an account ban or rejection of an order.
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while you use the Services and/or have a Playio account (the “Term”). You may stop using the Services at any time, for any reason, by uninstalling the App from your mobile device. Playio may terminate or suspend your account at any time without notice if Playio reasonably believes that you have breached this Agreement. After your account is terminated, this Agreement will terminate, except for the provisions of the sections labelled “Payment & Fees”, “Intellectual Property”, “No Liability”, “No Warranty”, “Indemnity”, “Severability, Force Majeure, Entire Agreement & Headings”, “Representations and Warranties”, and “Governing Law and Language”.
Upon termination of this Agreement, User shall discontinue its use of the Services. However, termination of this Agreement by Playio shall not limit User's obligation to pay any outstanding fees, if applicable, nor restrict Playio from pursuing any other remedies available to it, including injunctive relief.
User agrees that following termination of User’s account and/or use of the Services, Playio may immediately deactivate User’s account and delete User data and accumulated rewards. User further agrees that Playio shall not be liable to User nor to any third party for any termination of User access to the Services or deletion of User data. The foregoing shall not apply if such termination or deletion is attributable to Playio’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
PAYMENT & FEES
User agrees to pay to Playio any fees for each Service that User purchases, uses, or subscribes to in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented by Playio for such Service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method selected by the User at the moment of purchase. Playio refunds as prescribed in the applicable law, and for more details, please refer to the respective webpage for sales.
Playio offers points, used as virtual currency in the Playio apps and referred to as “Gems” and “Coins”, to Users in exchange for testing, reviewing and/or using the mobile games listed in the App. Playio does not reward for time spent in App but rather for real game playtime. Leaving the App open does not constitute game playtime. Users can redeem Gems for different rewards offered by Playio, such as gift cards, gift certificates, prepaid cash cards, in-game items or content codes (collectively “Rewards”). The Rewards cannot be redeemed for cash or in any way resold, exchanged or returned for a cash refund, unless required by law. Rewards may be redeemed in countries where applicable merchants and services are available. Playio is not responsible for any valid Reward which user is unable to redeem due to their age, situation, or country of residence. Playio is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or malfunctioning Rewards except when it is caused by gross negligence or willful misconduct of Playio.
Upon redeeming a reward from our Shop, you will be prompted to provide a phone number, which is linked to your user account to ensure the uniqueness of your user registration within the mobile application. If you do not want to redeem a reward from our Shop, you can use all other features of the mobile application without providing your phone number.
Playio reserves the right to delete without notice any account which has been inactive for a consecutive period of one hundred eighty (180) days. An account is deemed inactive when: (i) no Gems have been redeemed or credited; (ii) no new referral sign-ups have occurred using the account’s referral link; (iii) there has been no access or attempt to access the Services. If the account contains any Gems, Coins or Rewards, they will be considered void without notice.
During the Term, Playio grants User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use the Services on the terms set forth in this Agreement. User agrees that all rights, title, and interest in and to all the intellectual property rights in the Services, and all modifications, extensions, scripts and other derivative works of the Services provided or developed by Playio are owned exclusively by Playio or its licensors. All rights not granted to User in this Agreement are reserved by Playio.
User shall not (i) create an Account or access the Service if they are under the age of 18; (ii) decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer or attempt to reconstruct or discover any source code, underlying ideas, algorithms, file formats or programming or interoperability interfaces of or used by the Services, by any means whatsoever; (iii) distribute viruses or other harmful or malicious computer code via or into the Services; (iv) engage in any conduct that disrupts or impedes a third party’s use and enjoyment of the Services; (v) remove any product identification, copyright or other notices from the Services; (vi) sell, lease, lend, assign, sublicense, grant access or otherwise transfer or disclose the Services in whole or in part, to any third party; (vii) use the Services for time-sharing, service bureau or hosting purposes or otherwise use, resell, sublicense, distribute or transfer or allow others to use the Services to or for the benefit of third parties; (viii) modify or incorporate into or with other software or create a derivative work of any part of the Services; (ix) use the output or other information generated by the Services for any purpose other than as contemplated by this Agreement; (x) use the Services for any use other than User’s internal business use; (xi) use unauthorized modified versions of the Services, including without limitation, for the purpose of building a similar or competitive product or service or for the purpose of obtaining unauthorized access to the Services; or (xii) use the Services in any way that is contrary to applicable local, state/provincial, federal and foreign laws, including without limitation those relating to privacy, electronic communications and anti-spam legislation. Playio retains all title to, and, except as expressly licensed herein, all rights to the Services, all copies, derivatives, and improvements thereof and all related documentation and materials.
The Services contain copyrighted material, trademarks, and other proprietary information, including, but not limited to, text, software, photos, video, graphics, music and sound, and the entire contents of the Services are copyrighted as a collective work under copyright laws. Playio owns a copyright in the selection, coordination, arrangement, and enhancement of such content, as well as in the content original to it. User may not modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale, create derivative works, or in any way exploit, any of the content, in whole or in part. Except as otherwise expressly permitted under copyright law, no copying, redistribution, retransmission, publication, or commercial exploitation of downloaded material will be permitted without the express permission of Playio and the copyright owner. In the event of any permitted copying, redistribution or publication of copyrighted material, no changes in or deletion of author attribution, trademark legend or copyright notice shall be made.
Playio and User shall each retain in confidence all information received from the other party pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement that the disclosing party identifies as being proprietary and/or confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential ("Confidential Information"), and will make no use of such Confidential Information except as necessary to fulfill their respective obligations under the terms and during the term of this Agreement. Playio may collect some Confidential Information from User which includes, without limitation, their name, email address, age, gender, profile picture, social media profiles and payment information. The restrictions set forth above will not apply to (i) information previously known to the receiving party without reference to the disclosing party's Confidential Information, (ii) information which is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party, (iii) information that is independently developed by either of the parties, or (iv) information required to be disclosed pursuant to applicable law.
THIRD PARTY SERVICES
Playio may recommend, provide you with access to, or enable third party software, applications, products, services, or website links (collectively, “Third Party Services”) for your consideration or use. Such Third-Party Services are made available only as a convenience, and download, purchase, access, or use of any such Third-Party Services is solely between you and the applicable third-party services provider (“Third Party Provider”). Any use by you of Third-Party Services offered through the Services or the App is entirely at your own risk and discretion, and it is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions and/or privacy policies applicable to such Third-Party Services before using them. Under no circumstances shall Playio be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive, extraordinary, exemplary, or other damages whatsoever, that result from any Third-Party Services or your contractual relationship with any Third-Party Provider. These limitations shall apply even if Playio has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
Playio works to keep the services bug-free and safe but the user agrees to use the services at user’s own risk. Playio is providing the services “as is” and “as available” without any representations and warranties, express, implied, or statutory, not expressly set out in these terms, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. In addition, neither Playio, its affiliates nor any of their respective employees, agents, mandataries, third party content providers or licensors make no representation, warranty, or guarantee regarding the reliability, timeliness, quality, suitability or availability of the services or any services or goods requested through the use of the services, or that the services will be uninterrupted or error-free.
All games featured in the Discover Weekly section of the app are recommended based on similar games that a user has installed on their device. The featured games are not hand-picked or vetted by Playio, and downloading these games carries the same risk as downloading any other game directly from the Google Play Store. Playio accepts no responsibility for any unintended consequences of selecting a game from the discover weekly playlist.
In no event shall Playio or its respective suppliers or affiliates be liable for any special, indirect or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever resulting from loss of use, data or profits, or any damages or loss arising from the services provided by third party providers, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other civil liability action, arising out of or in connection with the use of any software, program or platform provided as part of the services except in the case of intentional or gross fault.
To the extent your data is used for research purposes, the limitation of liability clause above and the indemnity clause below are waived with respect to any harms suffered or liabilities incurred as a result of such research activities.
User agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Playio, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, and mandataries from and against all claims and expenses, including without limitation, attorneys' fees (collectively the “Costs”), to the extent that such Costs are attributable to any breach by User, of any representations, warranties, or other obligations set forth in this Agreement or arising out of the use of the Services by User.
GOVERNING LAW AND LANGUAGE
These Terms of Service shall be construed in accordance with the laws applicable in the province of Seoul, South Korea, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. User hereby agrees, for any dispute or controversy arising under or in connection with this Agreement or resulting from the Services or Corporation’s website shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in Seoul (South Korea).
The parties to this Agreement confirm that it is their wish that: (1) this Agreement and all other related documents be prepared in Korean; (2) any litigation or dispute resolution proceeding be held in Korean; and (3) any litigation or dispute resolution document or court filing be drafted in Korean only.
SEVERABILITY, FORCE MAJEURE, ENTIRE AGREEMENT AND HEADINGS
If one or more of the provisions of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unaffected. Neither party shall be deemed in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of its performance under this Agreement (other than payment obligations) by reason of any act of God, fire, natural disaster, accident, act of government, shortage of materials or supplies, failure of transportation or communication or of suppliers of goods or services, or any other cause to the extent it is beyond the reasonable control of such party. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written, electronic, or oral communications, representations, agreements, or understandings between the parties with respect thereto.
