Third Party Service
Your use of any third-party service provider in connection with the Services, including, but not limited to (i) payment service providers such as PayPal; and (ii) social media technology providers such as Instagram and Facebook is governed by such third-party service provider’s then applicable terms and conditions and, to the extent that you make use of a third-party provider in connection with the Services, you hereby agree to abide by such terms. Any fees charged by a third-party service provider in connection with your use thereof shall be your sole responsibility.
Peersway may terminate or suspend any and all Services and/or your user account immediately, without prior notice or liability, including without limitation if you breach the Terms, provided, however, that if any Fees have accrued but not been paid to you, then you shall remain entitled to payment of such Fees unless such suspension or termination is made due to your breach of these Terms or the terms of a specific Campaign. Upon termination of your account, your license to use the Site and Services will be revoked and your right to use the Site and/or Services will immediately cease.

By submitting Social Media Content to Peersway for approval in connection with a Campaign and/or by posting Social Media Content to a Social Media Account in connection with your participation in a Campaign, you shall be deemed to have transferred, assigned, granted, conveyed, assigned, set over unto and relinquished ownership of the Social Media Content and all intellectual property rights associated therewith to Peersway, provided, however, that you shall be deemed to have been granted by Peersway a license to post such Social Media Content to the designated User Social Media Accounts in connection with your participation in such Campaign. You hereby acknowledge that Peersway shall be entitled to sell or assign the right to use the Social Media Content to any third-party in its full discretion.

The Security of the Site
Peersway maintains reasonable safeguards and personnel policies that are designed to guard the Site, the Services, our systems and our users’, business partners’ and others’ information. For example, for the security of your online visit to the Site, Peersway may make use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and/or authentication procedures.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while Peersway strives to protect your information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any content you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personal information, Peersway will notify you as necessary so you can take appropriate protective steps. Unless you indicate otherwise, we may notify you under such circumstances using the email address you provided to us when you registered with the Site.
When you visit the Site, use the Services or send emails to Peersway, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from Peersway electronically. Peersway may communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that Peersway provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Site Is for Use in Canada
Conflict With Other Agreements
These Terms are in addition to, and do not nullify, any other agreement between you and Peersway or any other applicable terms and conditions found on the Site. In the case of any direct conflict between these Terms and any other agreement between you and Peersway, the provisions of such other agreement shall prevail but only to the extent applicable to the conflicting provisions. You agree to comply with all rules or restrictions that are posted on the Site.
Void Where Prohibited by Law
Peersway administers and operates the Site and Services from its location in Ontario, Canada. Although the Site and Services are accessible worldwide, not all features, products or services discussed, referenced, provided or offered through or on the Site and/or Services are available to all persons or in all geographic locations, or appropriate or available for use outside Canada. Peersway reserves the right to limit, in its sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any feature, product or service to any person or geographic area. Any offer for any feature, product or service made on the Site is void where prohibited. If you choose to access the Site from outside Canada, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.
Resolution of Disputes
If a dispute arises out of, or in connection with this Agreement, the parties agree to first meet to pursue resolution through negotiation.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms and you have no authority of any kind to bind Peersway in any respect whatsoever. The failure of any party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Peersway shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder, where such failure results from any cause beyond Peersway’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). Peersway may transfer, assign or delegate the Terms and its rights and obligations without consent.
Any of these Terms which by its nature should survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability, shall survive termination and continue in full force and effect except to the extent expressly set out in these Terms.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any of these Terms shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other of these Terms and any such invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed to be severable.
Governing Law and Language
