The Publizz app (a solution from Byelex Sales B.V.) provides a fun and innovative way to incentivize people to read news articles and earn virtual currency at the same time. These terms are relevant for the users who read these articles.
Prior to using our Services, you acknowledge and agree that:
You may only use our Services as permitted by law, including all applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the REGULATION (EU) 2021/821.
You are responsible for all uses of Bitcoin (via off-chain, lightning network, or on-chain transaction) you may receive from the Publizz app through the Services. You are responsible for any taxes due with respect to your use of the Services and any payments we make to you. We do not intend to create a partnership with you for any tax or other purpose.
Unless otherwise indicated, the Services are the property of Publizz and using the Services does not grant you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services. These Terms do not grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, others’ content in the Services, or Publizz branding or logos used in our Services. Please do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services. We love hearing feedback, but do note that we may use any feedback to improve our Services without any additional obligation to you.
In addition, our Services may enable you to earn Bitcoin via account balance or withdrawal as payment for completing a task (e.g. reading an article) via the Publizz app. When you withdraw or earn an account balance via the Services, this is not a peer-to-peer transaction and you are transacting solely with the Company. All redemptions or withdrawals of your account balance are not cancellable and not refundable, except as set forth: (1) in these Terms; (2) our official Publizz app refund policy made available with the applicable Publizz App Service; or (3) as required by law. An account balance does not constitute a personal property right and has no monetary value.
You may need a Publizz app account to use some of our Services. By creating an account, you agree to: (1) provide accurate, complete, and current information; and (2) protect your account by keeping your sign in link confidential. You agree that you will not create more than one Publizz app account to access the Services. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Publizz app account. If you learn of any unauthorized access to your account, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
By using the Services, you may access Content that is owned by third parties. The Publizz app has no responsibility or liability for your access or use of third-party Content that is made available to you through the Services, including whether you acquire the Content through a peer-to-peer transaction with a third party, Content is made available to you via Publizz App Service, or by redeeming an account balance. While we are not obligated to review Content, we may remove or refuse to provide access to Content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. The Services and Content may not be available in all jurisdictions, and we may restrict use of all or a portion of the Services and Content in certain jurisdictions.
From time-to-time, we may provide you access to alpha, beta or other pre-release versions of our Services. We will designate when a Service is in beta or pre-release by including the designation “alpha”, “BETA”, or a similar designation, in or near the product description. When a Service is in beta or pre-release, the Service is still in development and is not ready for general commercial release. Such Service may contain bugs, errors and defects, and you should not expect the Service to perform in the same way as a fully launched, commercial service. You acknowledge that we do not guarantee the full commercial introduction of any beta or pre-release Service.
We respond to notice of alleged copyright infringement according to the process set out in the European Union’s Copyright Directive. Please see the DIRECTIVE (EU) 2019/790 for the requirements of a proper notification. Such notices should be sent to email@example.com We reserve the right to delete content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of infringers.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Publizz and its affiliates, officers, agents and employees from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to: (1) your use of or inability to use the Services (including acccess to your account balance or the Publizz app task) or Content; (2) any Content you provide or offer to provide; (3) any peer-to-peer transaction you have with other users; or (4) your violation of these Terms. Although we provide an Acceptable Use Policy for using our Services, we cannot control and take no responsibility for users’ actions and Content.
We have put in a great deal of effort to deliver you Services that we hope you find valuable, but there are certain things we can’t promise about them. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND ANY CONTENT IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, NEITHER PUBLIZZ APP NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS (“PUBLIZZ PARTIES”) MAKE ANY WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES OR CONTENT. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” PUBLIZZ DOES NOT WARRANT THAT: (1) THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR VIRUS-FREE; (2) THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE ACCURATE OR MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; OR (3) ANY DEFECTS IN THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE CORRECTED. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE PUBLIZZ PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU FOR ANY: (1) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS OR PROFITS; (2) FINANCIAL LOSSES; OR (3) INDIRECT, SPECIAL CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. THIS WILL BE WHETHER OR NOT THE PUBLIZZ PARTIES HAVE BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF PUBLIZZ PARTIES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING ACCOUNT BALANCES AND THE PUBLIZZ APP TASKS) OR CONTENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US IN A CENTRALLY CONTROLLED GOVERNMENT-ISSUED CURRENCY TO USE OUR SERVICES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS, NOTHING IN THESE TERMS EXCLUDES OR LIMITS LIABILITY FOR FRAUD, FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION, OR FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY GROSS NEGLIGENCE. ADDITIONAL TERMS APPLY AND MAY BE FOUND IN OUR GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE ABOVE.
You can stop using our Services at any time (though we hope you don’t!). Our Services are constantly being updated, and you should revisit these Terms regularly. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate users, reclaim Publizz app account usernames without any liability to you, or change, suspend, discontinue or disable access to the Services at any time and without notice at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to terminate your access and use of the Services if you violate these Terms or any policies referenced herein, or if you use the Services in a way that we reasonably believe creates legal liability for us.
If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. BTC’s failure to enforce a provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms to anyone else, and any such attempt will be void. All of our rights under these Terms are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisitions, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. These Terms control the relationship between yourself and BTC/Bitcoin Black Friday. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
