PaidWorkout is not responsible for: any incorrect, invalid or inaccurate entry information; human errors; technical malfunctions; failures, including public utility or telephone outages; omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone system or network, computer online systems, data, computer equipment, servers, providers, or software (including, but not limited to software and operating systems that do not permit an entrant to participate in a Challenge), including WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY INJURY OR DAMAGE TO ANY ENTRANT’S or any other person’s property, computer or video equipment relating to or resulting from participation in a Challenge; inability to access the Website or the mobile applications, or any web pages that are part of or related to the Website or mobile applications; theft, tampering, destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries and/or images of any kind; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, postal issues, computer or electronic malfunction or traffic congestion on telephone lines or transmission systems, or the internet, or any service provider’s facilities, or any phone site or website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors, or any combination thereof.

If for any reason a Challenge is not capable of running as originally planned, or if a Challenge, computer application, or website associated therewith (or any portion thereof) becomes corrupted or does not allow the proper carrying out of a Challenge in accordance with the Terms of Use or applicable Challenge rules, or if infection by a computer (or similar) virus, bug, tampering, unauthorized intervention, actions by entrants, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes of any kind, in the sole opinion of PaidWorkout corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of a Challenge, PaidWorkout reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual implicated in such action and/or to cancel, terminate, extend, modify or suspend the Challenge, and select the winner(s) from all participants in the Challenge. If such cancellation, termination, modification or suspension occurs, notification will be posted on the Website or on the mobile applications.

ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR MOBILE APPLICATIONS OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY CHALLENGE IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, PAIDWORKOUT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

All entries become the property of PaidWorkout and will not be acknowledged or returned.

To be eligible to enter any Challenge or receive any prize, the Authorized Account Holder may be required to provide PaidWorkout with additional documentation and/or information to verify the identity of the Authorized Account Holder, and to provide proof that all eligibility requirements are met. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of an Authorized Account Holder, PaidWorkout will, in its sole and absolute discretion, utilize certain information collected by PaidWorkout to assist in verifying the identity and/or eligibility of such Authorized Account Holder.

Participation in each Challenge must be made only as specified in the Terms of Use. Failure to comply with these Terms of Use will result in disqualification and, if applicable, prize forfeiture.

Where legal, both entrants and Challenge winners consent to the use of their name, voice, and likeness/photograph in and in connection with the development, production, distribution and/or exploitation of any Challenge or the Website and mobile applications.

PaidWorkout reserves the right to move entrants from the Challenges they have entered to substantially similar Challenges in certain situations determined by PaidWorkout in its sole discretion.

CHALLENGE PRIZES AND PROMOTIONS

Prizes will only be awarded if a Challenge is run. PaidWorkout reserves the right to cancel Challenges at any time. In the event of a cancellation, all entry fees will be refunded to the customer except as specifically provided in these Terms of Use.

Guaranteed prizes are offered in connection with some of the Challenges offered by the Website and the mobile applications.

OTHER LEGAL RESTRICTIONS

CHALLENGE OF SKILL

Challenges offered on the Website and mobile applications are challenges of physical skill. Winners are determined by the objective criteria based on the physical activity level of each user. PaidWorkout analyses fitness activity of each individual based on several metrics including calories burned, time spent exercising and steps per day; from this information we apply an algorithm to determine an “Activity Score” which is a measure of how active a user has been in any given time period. The more active a user is, the higher their score will be and therefore the higher that user’s rank in a Challenge. The Challenges may not be used for any form of illicit gambling. PaidWorkout highly encourages users to utilize a supported wearable device such as an Apple Watch, Fitbit or Garmin that allows for the constant tracking of steps, calories and minutes being active (a “Wearable”). The use of a Wearable will greatly improve a user’s statistics and Activity Score. However, those users without a Wearable or supported Wearable will have a small number of steps and calories added to their daily Activity Score to compensate for normal activity levels that would have otherwise been captured by a supported Wearable. 

CHALLENGE STATISTICS AND LIVE SCORING

All ‘live’ statistics and other information provided through the PaidWorkout Website and mobile applications are offered for informational purposes while a users Activity Score will be used to determine the winners of Challenges, all scores displayed on the system may not be complete until the Challenge is over. Activity Scores displayed on the system can be inaccurate for several reasons including but not limited to loss of internet connection by a participant or failure to sync a wearable device. In this example, once internet connectivity is restored from a user their Activity Score will be recalculated which may result in a dramatically different score. PaidWorkout shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in Activity Score information.

CHALLENGE RESULTS

Challenge results and prize calculations are based on the final Activity Scores of each user in a Challenge at the completion time of such Challenge. Once Challenge results are reviewed and finalized, prizes are awarded. You will not be permitted to dispute results and winners which is confirmed in the sole determination of PaidWorkout. 

PRIZES

At the conclusion of each Challenge, prizes will be awarded by 12:00 NOON EST on the following day except in circumstances where technical failure, inability of PaidWorkout to verify your compliance with these Terms, or other reasons prevent such timely payout. Challenge prizes are listed in Personal Profile section of the Website and Mobile Application. A winner will also by notified by electronic means of their winning. Prizes won are added to the winning participants account balance. In the event of a tie, prizes are divided evenly amongst the participants that have tied.  

PRIZE PAYOUTS

Challenge prize payouts will be published with the creation of each new Challenge. PaidWorkout reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the Challenges (or any portion thereof) should virus, bugs, unauthorized human intervention, or other causes corrupt administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper operation of the Challenge (or any portion thereof) warrant doing so. Notification of such changes may be provided by PaidWorkout to its customers but will not be required. 

PAYMENT AND WITHDRAWAL OF PRIZES

Winners are posted on the Website and on the mobile application.

Before making any payment, PaidWorkout may require that an entrant complete and execute an affidavit of eligibility in which, among other things, the entrant is required to represent and warrant that the entrant is eligible to participate in a Challenge, is otherwise in compliance with this Agreement and, potentially, is required to provide documentation or proof of eligibility and compliance. If PaidWorkout requests that an entrant completes and executes such an affidavit and the entrant fails to do so within seven (7) days, or PaidWorkout otherwise determines that the entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is not in compliance with these Terms, PaidWorkout reserves the right to terminate the entrant’s Account and withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with such account. In such a situation, PaidWorkout may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant Challenge in a manner consistent herewith.

Users may withdraw their cash prize awards as well as cash deposits by using the “Withdrawal” option on the Website and the mobile application. Users may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and forms of identification including but not limited to a Driver’s License, Proof of Residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by PaidWorkout in order to complete the withdrawal of prizes. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prizes. Disqualification or forfeiture of any prizes may also occur if it is determined any such entrant did not comply with these Terms of Use in any manner.

Checks for withdrawal requests are processed within 14 business days, with the exception of any such requests coming from persons physically located in Iowa, which will be processed within 5 days, and are sent via U.S. Mail. PaidWorkout may choose to provide a check or wire transfer of cash prizes over $5,000 rather than using the electronic cash payout functionality of your Wallet. 

Promotional deposits, credits, referral credits and other bonuses may not be withdrawn from a PaidWorkout account as cash and must be used by the user.

All taxes associated with the receipt of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of Challenges is challenged by any legal authority, PaidWorkout reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.

No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted, except that PaidWorkout reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value or greater if the advertised prize is unavailable. All prizes or merchandise given to a user are awarded “as is” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).

Any withdrawal requests, after approved by PaidWorkout, will be credited back to the same credit card or method of payment used to deposit funds on the Website. PaidWorkout will only release withdrawals to a different credit card or other payment method other than that which was used to make deposit(s) after the aggregate amount of such deposit(s) has already been released back to the credit card(s) or payment method(s) used for the deposit(s).

TERMINATION AND EFFECT OF TERMINATION

In addition to any other legal or equitable remedy, PaidWorkout may, without prior notice, immediately revoke any or all of your rights granted hereunder. In such event, you will immediately cease all access to and use of the PaidWorkout Website and any mobile application. PaidWorkout may revoke any password(s) and/or account identification issued to you and deny you access to and use of the Website or any mobile application. Any such action shall not affect any rights and obligations arising prior thereto. All provisions of the Terms of Use which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

If we terminate or suspend your Account, your license to use any software or content provided in connection with the Account is also terminated or suspended (as applicable). If your Account is terminated, PaidWorkout has the right to immediately delete all data, files, and other information stored in or for your account without further notice to you.

Some of the Services may allow you to submit or transmit audio, video, photos, text, or other materials (collectively, “User Submissions”) to or through the Services. When you provide User Submissions, you grant to PaidWorkout, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully sub-licenseable license to use, distribute, edit, display, archive, publish, sublicense, perform, reproduce, make available, transmit, broadcast, sell, translate, and create derivative works of those User Submissions, and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information where part of a User Submission, in any form, media, software, or technology of any kind now known or developed in the future, including, without limitation, for developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in your User Submissions.

In addition, you agree that any User Submissions you submit shall not contain any material that is, in the sole and absolute discretion of PaidWorkout, inappropriate, obscene, vulgar, unlawful, or otherwise objectionable (hereinafter, “Prohibited Content”). Posting of any Prohibited Content, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies available to PaidWorkout, may result in account suspension or termination.

We respect your ownership of User Submissions. If you owned a User Submission before providing it to us, you will continue owning it after providing it to us, subject to any rights granted in the Terms of Use and any access granted to others. If you delete a User Submission from the Services, our general license to that User Submission will end after a reasonable period of time required for the deletion to take full effect. However, the User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available. If your User Submission is shared with third parties, those third parties may have retained copies of your User Submissions. In addition, if we made use of your User Submission before you deleted it, we will continue to have the right to make, duplicate, redistribute, and sublicense those pre-existing uses, even after you delete the User Submission. Terminating your account on a Service will not automatically delete your User Submissions.

We may refuse or remove a User Submission without notice to you. However, we have no obligation to monitor User Submissions, and you agree that neither we nor our parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, or agents will be liable for User Submissions or any loss or damage resulting from User Submissions.

Except as provided in the Privacy Policy, we do not guarantee that User Submissions will be private, even if the User Submission is in a password-protected area. Accordingly, you should not provide User Submissions that you want protected from others.

You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to PaidWorkout the license above and that none of your User Submissions are defamatory, violate any rights of third parties (including intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy), or violate applicable law.
