XLoad Terms of Service
Last revised: January 18, 2019
1. TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
The following terms and conditions govern your access to, and use of, the XLOAD smartphone and mobile device application (the “Application”), and your use of the xload.io website (the “Site”) and all content, products, promotions, Services and functionality available at or through the Application and the Site (collectively, the “Services”). The Services are owned and operated by XLD PTE LTD., a corporation duly organized and existing under Singapore Laws (“XLOAD”, “we”, “us” or “our”).
The XLOAD Application allows users to earn digital credits called “XLD” by using the application and completing tasks under the “Earn XLD” button on the application. XLD can be used to purchase prepaid airtime from any operator in any country in the world listed on the application. The XLOAD application allows users to top-up or send airtime to any prepaid number in the world.
The XLOAD application contains several tasks such as, but not limited to watching rewarded videos, completing “offer wall” tasks, and referring other users (collectively, “Content”). Consumers who have downloaded and installed the application receive an amount of XLD as determined by XLOAD (collectively, “End Users”, and each, an “End User” , also “you”). As further described below, at XLOAD's sole and absolute discretion, XLOAD compensates End Users with XLD, depending on both usage of the application and number of tasks completed. The Services offered are subject to the terms and conditions contained herein and in all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time through the Services by XLOAD (collectively, this “Agreement”).
By clicking on or pressing “agree” during the sign-up process, or by accessing or using any other part of the Services, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, which form a legally binding contract between you and XLOAD.

4. LIMITED LICENSE
Subject to your compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and in consideration of your undertakings stated in this Agreement, XLOAD grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to
download, install, and use the Application to use on a single mobile device,
receive and use XLD as defined and provided in Section 5, and
use the Services, in each case for your personal purposes but not for commercial resale, sublicensing, time-sharing or services bureau usage.
All rights not expressly granted to you by the foregoing sentence are reserved by XLOAD. You may not interfere with the Services in any way, or copy, modify, distribute or reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble Application or the Services, or make any derivative works based on the Application or the Services (including any customization, translation, or localization). Your compliance with the requirements in this Section 4 is a condition to, and material inducement and consideration for, our granting you the right to access and use the Application and the Services. Any unauthorized use or other activity by you in violation of this Agreement will cause the licenses granted to you by XLOAD in this Section 4 to terminate automatically.
This Agreement does not transfer from XLOAD to you any XLOAD or third party intellectual property, and all rights, title and interest in, to, and under, such property will remain solely with XLOAD or such third party, as applicable. All rights not expressly granted in this Agreement are reserved to XLOAD. The following marks: XLOAD, xload.io, the XLOAD logo, XLD, and all other trademarks, services mark, graphics and logos used or displayed in connection with the Services are trademarks or registered trademarks of XLOAD or XLOAD's licensors.

5. END USER ACCOUNTS
If you sign up for the Services, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account. You must not use another person's XLOAD account or share your password with another person. When creating your account, you must provide accurate, current and complete information. You agree to immediately notify XLOAD of any unauthorized usage of your account or login credentials or any other breaches of security. XLOAD will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. Our current policy limits you to the use of one email address and mobile number per XLOAD account. You may change your mobile number at any time as long as the new number passes verification. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries regarding account suspension and recovery.
When you download the XLOAD Application, you will be prompted to register for an End User Account, and XLOAD will begin displaying the Content both as notifications on your lockscreen and as an interstitial pop-up after unlocking your mobile phone. After that, all of your interactions with XLOAD will be recorded, stored in our servers, and associated with your End User Account. Among other things, your End User Account will keep track of your XLD and XLD balance (“Rewards”), your transaction options, and your transaction history.
By using and completing tasks within the XLOAD Application, you will be able to accrue and receive XLD. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO ACCRUE, RECEIVE AND STORE REWARDS WHEN SIGNED INTO YOUR END USER ACCOUNT.
When you are using the XLOAD Application, your Rewards will be reflected in your End User Account. Depending on the current value of a XLD, which will be determined at XLOAD's sole and absolute discretion, you may, from time to time, redeem them for prepaid load/credit.
Rewards obtained via the Application are provided to you under a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable and non-assignable license. Rewards may not be transferred or resold in any manner, including by means of any direct sale or auction Services. You are, however, allowed to redeem your personal Rewards to top-up another person's prepaid balance, as long as you provide his/her mobile number on the transaction screen. You have no property interest, right or title in or to the Rewards appearing or originating in the Application, or any other attributes associated with use of XLOAD or its Application. Any Rewards balance shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license.
XLOAD DOES NOT PROMISE OR GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY NUMBER OF REWARDS OR THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY AMOUNT OF CONTENT IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, OR ANY AMOUNT OF VALUE, MONETARY OR OTHERWISE, WHEN YOU REDEEM YOUR XLD.
As noted, each time you receive Rewards, we place the Rewards in your End User Account. Your ability to receive and redeem Rewards is conditioned on your compliance with the Agreement. You may access your End User Account to modify your account settings or to review your Reward balances and XLD transaction choices. You may log in through Facebook Connect or by entering your email address and password with the Application.
You may log into your End User Account to redeem your accumulated XLD. While we reserve the right to modify when and how you can redeem XLD at any time in our sole and absolute discretion, as of the “Last Updated” date of this Agreement set forth below (the “Effective Date”), you can redeem your XLD by simply clicking the “Buy Load” button of your End User Account interface (accessible through the Application).

9. UPDATES and AMENDMENTS
From time to time, the Application may automatically download and install, or may prompt you to download and install, updates from XLOAD. These updates are designed to improve, enhance and further develop the Application and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new software modules or completely new versions. You agree to such updates as part of your continued use of the Application. While you may refuse to download and install updates, doing so may cause your access to the Application and/or the Services to be disabled.
We are constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for our users. You acknowledge and agree that the form, features and/or nature of the Application and the Services which we provide may change from time to time without prior notice to you. We may also cease or discontinue providing the Application or the Services, or support or upgrades for the Application, at any time.
XLOAD reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to amend or update any part of the Agreement by posting the amended or updated Agreement on the Site or making it available through the Application. Your continued use of or access to the Services following the posting or distribution of any changes to the Agreement constitutes acceptance of those changes.
XLOAD may terminate your access to all or any part of the Services, or block or disable your access or use of the Application, at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately.
XLOAD may terminate your access to all or any part of the Services, stop displaying Content on your mobile phone, or block or disable your access or use of the Application, if
XLOAD believes that you have breached any provision of the Agreement (or have acted in manner which shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Agreement);
XLOAD is required to do so by law ;
XLOAD is transitioning to no longer providing the Application to users in the state or country in which you are resident or from which you use the Application; or
XLOAD believes that your use of the Application may infringe or violate the rights of a third party or subject XLOAD to civil or criminal liability or reputational harm.
Termination will result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your account and any Rewards earned prior to such date. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination of this Agreement, such as ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, and miscellaneous terms, shall do so.
Your use of the Services is at your own risk. The Services are provided on an “as is” or “as available” basis, without any warranties of any kind. XLOAD and its officers, employees, representatives and agents disclaim all warranties, express or implied, in connection with the Services or your use thereof including, any and all warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, security, freedom from viruses, and non-infringement of intellectual property or proprietary rights.

3. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
XLOAD collects Personal Information in connection with our application. When we use the term “Personal Information” we are referring to information that can be used to identify an individual and may include your name, password, email address, Facebook profile picture, mobile number, and your in-app behavior. If you do not complete the account sign-up process, Xload will not be able to display the Content on your screen and you will not be able to collect or redeem XLD. The application allows End Users to access “Facebook Connect” to sign up and log in to the Application. Should you choose to use the Facebook Connect feature, XLOAD may collect certain information about you from your Facebook account, which will be specified at the time you first agree to sign in using Facebook Connect. You can edit privacy settings for posts that appear on Facebook or disconnect the Facebook Connect service by using the privacy tools provided through Facebook. Please note that the application may provide links to third party sites, such as links to the websites of Clients and other third-party organizations, businesses, and merchants who have agreed to make the Content and offers available to End Users through XLOAD. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or the content of websites owned by others that may be linked from the application. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of service of those websites so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share any Personal Information.
4. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
5. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may also disclose your Personal Information to Clients, with your express opt-in consent, where such sharing is required to deliver products or application that you have requested (including but not limited to facilitating your receipt of XLD and Products). In addition, we may disclose Personal Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our Site, marketing of our products and application, conducting audits, and performing web analytics). We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to
enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the application, including investigation of potential violations thereof,
comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request,
protect the rights, property or safety of us, our End Users or other third parties,
prevent a crime or protect national security, or
detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
6. ACCESSING AND UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you use our application, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request, provided that, it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or for which access is not otherwise required.
7. INFORMATION SECURITY
We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. For example, industry-standard encryption (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure a.k.a. “https”) is used to protect communications between our servers and our End Users' web browsers and mobile devices. We also use an in-house authentication server. For example, once one of our links is used it will no longer be accessible. This is done to prevent fraudulent activity from occurring. However, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security at all times.
8. SOCIAL MEDIA AND OTHER ONLINE FORUMS
Please note that when you post messages or profile content on social media and other online forums that we may make available on our Site or Application, such content is viewable by third parties and the public in general. Accordingly, you should exercise discretion with regard to the extent of Personal Information you post on our Site or Application and you should not post highly confidential or sensitive information. XLOAD is not responsible for acts of third parties who view your Personal Information (such as sending you unsolicited messages).
