Quack Terms of Service
Last Updated: 7 February 2019
Welcome to Quack’s Terms of Service. Please read these Terms of Service carefully, as they constitute a legally binding agreement (“Agreement”) between you as user (“you”) and the Quack Group (“we”, “us” or “our”). The Quack Group operates Quack and includes, but is not limited to, Quack App Limited, Social Online Payments Limited (a company incorporated in Ireland under company number 496494) and Social Online Payments, Inc. (a company incorporated in Delaware under company number 5214252).
This Agreement applies to and governs your use of (i) the Quack app (the “App”), (ii) www.quackapp.com and all corresponding subdomains, webpages and websites associated with the foregoing URL (the “Site”); and (iii) any other content, applications, features, products and services offered by us that refer to this Agreement (collectively, and together with the App and the Site, the “Services”). This Agreement applies whether you are accessing the Services via a personal computer, a browser, a wireless or mobile device or any other technology or device (each, a “Device”). This Agreement does not cover other services, platforms, applications, websites or any corresponding content, features, promotions or activities made available by any other company, person or entity, unless specifically stated.
By using the Services, downloading the App, completing the registration process or clicking or checking the “Let’s Go” or similar button, you understand, acknowledge and agree that (a) you have read and agree to be legally bound by this Agreement and (b) you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Quack.
Your use of, and participation in, certain Services may be subject to, and you will comply with, additional terms (e.g., software licenses, program terms, etc.) (“Additional Terms”), and such Additional Terms will either be listed in this Agreement made available on the Services or provided to you in connection with your use of or access to same. We may also distribute guidelines for user conduct, documentation related to user support or similar materials (“User Documentation”) via the Services; your use of the Services is subject to, and you will comply with, the User Documentation. The User Documentation, and the Additional Terms are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference as though fully set out herein. To the extent that there is a conflict or inconsistency between this Agreement and the User Documentation, this Agreement will govern. To the extent that there is a conflict or inconsistency between this Agreement and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will govern.
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while you access or use the Services, unless terminated earlier in accordance with the terms herein. You may terminate your use of or registration for the Services at any time by closing your User Account (as defined below) in accordance with our then-applicable requirements. Quack may terminate your use of or registration for the Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation, and without liability or obligation to you or any third-party, including in the event that you have breached this Agreement, or if we are required to by applicable law. In the event of any termination, you will still be bound by your obligations under this Agreement (including, but not limited to, any Additional Terms), such as any indemnifications, warranties, grants and limitations of liability.
From time to time, we may amend this Agreement in our sole discretion. In addition to posting any amended Agreement publicly on the Services, we may also, to the extent required by applicable law, distribute amended terms directly to users. Your failure to terminate your User Account following any such amendment shall constitute your acceptance of the Agreement as amended. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes.
By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (i) you are 13 years of age or older and acknowledge and agree that features, activities and other aspects of the Services or certain jurisdictions may be subject to heightened age or other eligibility requirements (e.g., purchases, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, rewards programs, etc.); (ii) your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law, rule or regulation; and (iii) you will make timely and satisfactory payment for any products or services purchased by you. If you provide information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Quack suspects that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Quack has the right to suspend or terminate your registration (in whole or in part) and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof), in its sole discretion, with or without notice to you, and without liability or obligation to you.
4. User Registration; Responsibility for Account.
4.1 User Registration.
4.2 Responsibility for Account.
You may only have one User Account and are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your User Credentials, and you will be responsible and liable for any access to or use of the Services by you or any person or entity using your User Credentials or Device, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by you or on your behalf, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent, including, but not limited to, any Fee-Based Services (as defined herein). It is therefore critical that you do not share your User Credentials with anyone. You agree to immediately notify Quack of any unauthorized use of your User Credentials, User Account or Device, or any other breach of security, including, but not limited to, in the event your Device is lost or stolen. It is your sole responsibility to (i) control the dissemination and use of your User Credentials, User Account and Device; (ii) update, maintain and control access to your User Credentials, User Account and Device; and (iii) cancel your User Account on the Services. We reserve the right to deny access, use and registration privileges to anyone if we believe there is a question about the identity of the person trying to access any account or element of the Services. Quack will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 4 or any other provision of this Agreement.
5. Device Phone Numbers, Address Book and Related Access and Communications.
6. Third-Party Platforms.
Some of the Services may be dependent on or interoperate with third-party platforms and services (e.g., Twitter, Apple, YouTube, Google Play, PayPal, etc.) (each, a “Third-Party Platform”) and may require that you be a registered member of such Third-Party Platforms and provide certain account credentials and other information in order to access or use such Services. Such Third-Party Platforms, in addition to providing application hosting, content distribution, support and other related services, may provide us with certain additional information about you. No Third-Party Platform through which you gain access to the Services will furnish any maintenance or support with respect to the Services, nor will they address any third-party claims related to your use of the Services. You acknowledge and agree that (i) when you use Third-Party Platforms, their own terms and privacy policies will govern your use of those platforms and services and (ii) the third-party from whom you received the license for the App or the Services (e.g., the Apple App Store, Google Play, etc. (and its subsidiaries)) is a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement and will have the right to enforce it.
7. Notifications; Location-Based Features.
The Services may make use of push notifications and other forms of communications to provide alerts, notifications and other information and, as part of your use of the Services, you may be asked to accept or deny push notifications or other similar alerts depending upon your Device and its corresponding settings, parameters, features and functionalities. If you reject, deny or disable push notification or similar functionality, then you will not receive any push notifications and may not be provided with access to features and functionalities of the Services. If you accept push notification or similar functionality, push notifications will be automatically sent to you. If you no longer wish to receive push notifications on your Device from the Services, then you must disable same by using the settings on your Device.
7.2 Location-Based Features.
The Services may require certain location data from you prior to your access, or on an on-going or continuous basis, in order to enable certain features of the Services (e.g., registration, determining and updating your city, searching contacts by city etc.) or to otherwise allow you to access certain content, products, services, information and other materials (“Located Content”). In order to make Located Content available to you, the Services will determine your location using one or more points of data, reference or information associated with, among other things, your Device (e.g., GPS, beacons, device software, and other points of data etc.). If you have set your Device to disable location features or other location determining or assisting software, you may be unable to access entirely or the Services may not be able to determine your location and you may not be able to use the Services or access Located Content. If you have enabled location features, then Quack will automatically update the city location in your profile when you open the App in a new location.
8. Personal Information.
9. Proprietary Rights.
Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Quack grants you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to download, install and use a copy of the App on a single Device that you own or control and to run such copy of the App solely for your own personal purposes. Furthermore, with respect to any application accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store (an “App Store Sourced Application”), you will only use the App Store Sourced Application (i) on an Apple-branded product that runs the iOS (Apple’s proprietary operating system) and (ii) as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service.
As between you and Quack, Quack owns, solely and exclusively, all right, title and interest in and to the Services and all content, materials and information contained or made available on, through or in connection therewith (“Content”), and the App, Services, the Site and Content are protected, without limitation, under applicable copyright, trademark and other intellectual property law rights.

Moreover, the framing or scraping of or in-line linking to the Services or any Content contained thereon and the use of web crawler, spidering or other automated means to access, copy, index, process or store any Content made available on or through the Services other than as expressly authorized by us in writing in advance is prohibited.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT PRODUCT OR SERVICE SPECIFICATIONS AND OTHER INFORMATION HAVE EITHER BEEN PROVIDED BY THE APPLICABLE THIRD-PARTY VENDORS OR COLLECTED FROM PUBLICLY AVAILABLE SOURCES AND WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY SUCH INFORMATION. ACCORDINGLY, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO MAKE WHATEVER INVESTIGATION YOU FEEL NECESSARY OR APPROPRIATE BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH ANY TRANSACTION WITH ANY OF THESE THIRD PARTIES AS SAME IS CONDUCTED AT YOUR SOLE RISK. FURTHER, WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CREDIT CARD AND OTHER PERSONAL DATA) YOU MIGHT BE REQUESTED TO GIVE ANY SUCH THIRD-PARTY, AND YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY CLAIM AGAINST US OR OUR AFFILIATES WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH TRANSACTION. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSISTING YOU IN CORRECTING ANY PROBLEM YOU MAY EXPERIENCE WITH GOODS AND SERVICES PURCHASED THROUGH A THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER, EVEN IF THE GOODS OR SERVICES ARE ACCESSED WITHIN, THROUGH OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES. WE CANNOT ENSURE THAT YOU WILL BE SATISFIED WITH ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THAT YOU PURCHASE FROM ANY THIRD-PARTY OPERATIONAL SERVICE PROVIDER AS THOSE ARE OWNED AND OPERATED BY INDEPENDENT ENTITIES. IN SOME CASES, YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO DIRECT CUSTOMER SERVICE ISSUES RELATED TO GOODS OR SERVICES TO THE RELEVANT THIRD-PARTY OPERATIONAL SERVICE PROVIDER.
18.3 No Warranty of Timeliness or Availability.
You further understand and acknowledge the capacity of the Services, in the aggregate and for each user, is limited. Consequently, some messages and transmissions, including, but not limited to, User Content, may not be processed in a timely fashion or at all, and some features or functions may be restricted or delayed or become completely inoperable. As a result, you acknowledge and agree that Quack assumes no liability, responsibility or obligation to transmit, process, store, receive or deliver transactions or User Content or for any failure or delay associated with any User Content and you are hereby expressly advised not to rely upon the timeliness or performance of the Services for any transactions or User Content. Some jurisdictions do not allow for the exclusion of certain warranties or certain limitations on damages and remedies, accordingly some of the exclusions and limitations described in this Agreement may not apply to you.
18.4 Limitation of Liability.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, QUACK, ITS AFFILIATES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, LICENSORS, OPERATORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, ADVERTISERS AND SUPPLIERS, WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL QUACK’S LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (I) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU DURING THE THREE MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT(S) GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY HEREUNDER; OR (II) $100 USD.
THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY HEREIN IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN AND REFLECTS A FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK.
