2.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by emailing you using the details that you have provided to us.
2.4 “Writing” includes emails. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
3. Our contract with you
3.1 How we will accept your registration. You need to register to use the services and we need to accept that registration before there is a contract between us. Our acceptance of your registration will take place when we email you to accept it and at that point a contract for the provision of our services to you will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we cannot accept your registration. If we are unable to accept your registration, we will inform you of this. This might be, for example, because the service is unavailable or because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for.
3.3 We only make our services available in the UK. Our Platform (as defined below) is solely for the promotion of our services in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept registrations for our services from addresses outside the UK.
4. Details of the services
4.1 Description of the service. We make available our web-based platform that delivers advertisements as digital video clips on behalf of an advertiser (“Advertisers”) to registered users, such as yourself, and then pay a fee to the applicable registered user in respect of the advertisements that registered user has viewed to completion (the “Platform”). The Platform also provides an option for registered users to donate the fees they have earned to a charity. The charities available for that donation may vary from time to time, but please contact us if you would like us to try and include a particular charity.
4.2 Viewing Advertisements to completion. You will only be deemed to have viewed an Advertisement to completion where the Platform registers this (“Completed Views”). The Platform will automatically notify you on screen that it has registered a Completed View. Please do not try to fast forward, skip or in any way affect or falsify your viewing of the Advertisements as the Platform will identify this and automatically identify the Advertisement as not being viewed to completion and will be unable to register any Completed View in respect of that Advertisement. Subject to paragraph 4.4, fees are only earned in respect of Completed Views. The fees are calculated and paid to you as described in paragraph 5, below. Please contact us if you think that there is a problem with the Platform registering an advertisement having been viewed to completion and we will investigate.
4.3 Number of Advertisements. We do not guarantee to make any particular number of Advertisements available to you. The availability of Advertisements is dependent on what Advertisers make available and the demographics of their requested target audience. We endeavour to match this to our appropriate registered users. However, we do limit the maximum number of Advertisements that will be issued to you per week. This is currently 5 Advertisements, but we may change this from time to time. We will try and let you know where we make any such change.
4.4 Availability of the services. We will endeavour to make the service available to you once you are registered with us, but we do not guarantee its availability and we may withdraw the service at any time. We will endeavour to provide you with advance notice of this. We may also need to suspend the services from time to time, for example, if there are technical problems or if we need to carry out any maintenance or make changes.
4.5 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the services is delayed by an event outside our control then we will aim to let you know as soon as possible and we will try and take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. We will not be liable for any delays caused by such an event.
4.6 Content of Advertisements. While we ask all Advertisers to comply with certain rules about the content of their Advertisements, we will not have any liability to you in connection with that content and you choose to view them at your own risk.
4.7 Rules in relation to using the services. You must at all times comply with the rules that apply to you registering for the service and then using the service. These rules are set out in Annex 1 to these terms and conditions. We may disable your login details and password and freeze your account, suspend the service and/or end this contract at any time if you do not comply with any of those rules.
4.8 Where we need to contact you. If we need to contact you then we will usually do so by email. We will send you emails to notify you of Advertisements that are available to be viewed, to provide you with updates on your account and annual statements, and to update you on any changes to the services, and any new features or new charities.
5. Calculation and payment of fees
5.1 Calculating the fees. You will earn a fee of £0.40 for every Completed View up to a maximum of five (5) per week. We will keep a record of all Completed Views and the amount in your account and you will be able to see this when you log in. Once the total amount in your account is £5.00 or more then you may request for this to be paid to you or for it to be donated to a charity selected by you on your behalf.
5.2 Payments of fees to you. Where you request any of those fees to be paid to you then we will arrange to do this within 30 days via PayPal or by bank transfer into a bank account nominated by you. You must tell us which you would prefer. The payment of the fees will be deemed to have been made to you when the fees are either (a) cleared funds in your bank account, or (b) cleared funds in your PayPal account.
5.3 Taxes. You are responsible for any taxes that are payable on the fees earned by you.
5.4 Changes to the fees. We may at any time make changes to the amount of the fees payable to you or the way in which they are to be paid to you. However, we will give you 30 days’ advance notice of any such changes by either emailing you or posting the notice on the Platform.
5.5 What to do if you think a payment is wrong. If you think a fee calculation or payment is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will investigate it.
5.6 Donations to charity. If you wish to donate the fees that you have earned to charity then you must select the charity from the available options and confirm this to us. We will allocate your donation to your selected charity and will make the payment, together with other donations received from other users, promptly after the end of each month. . If you wish for gift aid to be added then you will need to complete the relevant online form that we make available to you and we will provide you with confirmation by email, which you should retain for your records. Details of the donations you have made will be viewable on your account dashboard page.
