2. User Conduct
Your engagement with AWRD.GG, including any linked content and projects provided in Beta format, is bound by the following guidelines:
2.1 Content Authenticity and Integrity
Users are strictly prohibited from uploading, sharing, or promoting misleading, false, or deceptive content. This includes content to unfairly earn badges, points, or any other rewards.
The acquisition of badges, points, or any rewards through deceptive means or content is strictly prohibited. Awardable reserves the right to revoke or delete such rewards or impose other penalties for violations.
2.2 NSFW Content & Awardable's Discretion
While AWRD.GG allows for the submission of Not Safe For Work (NSFW) content, such content is subject to further review and scrutiny by our team.

Our platform allows users to upload and share various forms of media and content, including but not limited to, images, videos, audio, and text. You, as the user, retain all ownership rights to the content you upload. However, by uploading content to our platform, you grant us a comprehensive, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, communicate, publish, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, and create derivative works from your content for promotional, redistribution, or other platform use.
5.2 Ownership Rights
You, as the creator of the content, will continue to hold all rights to your content. This means that you may use your content in any other way you choose outside of our platform, and you may also grant others permission to use your content outside of our platform.
5.3 User Obligations
By uploading content to our platform, you represent and warrant that you have all necessary permissions, licenses, and authorizations to grant us the license described in this section. You also represent and warrant that your content does not infringe on any third-party rights, including but not limited to, intellectual property rights, privacy rights, and publicity rights.
5.4 Platform Use
We may use your content for various purposes, including but not limited to, promotion, advertising, and marketing of our platform. We may also use your content to improve our platform and create new features.
You may terminate this license at any time by deleting your content from our platform. However, any content that has already been used or shared by us may continue to be used by us even after termination.
6.1 Definition and Usage
Points are a proprietary feature of Awardable, serving as a virtual currency within our community-based loyalty rewards system. All registered users of our platform can create and distribute unique, custom-branded "Points". These Points can be utilized to access various forms of content and experiences within the Awardable platform. It is important to note that Points are not equivalent to real currency, do not accrue interest, and hold no intrinsic value in real-world currency.
6.2 Acquisition and Usage of Points
There are multiple ways for users to acquire Points within the Awardable ecosystem. A user can gain Points by (i) purchasing or receiving them directly from Awardable, (ii) subscribing to a membership plan that offers a monthly stipend of Points, (iii) trading Points with other users, or (iv) other methods that Awardable might introduce in the future.
6.3 Limited License for Point Usage
Purchasing or acquiring Points only grants users a limited, non-transferable, revocable license to use these Points within the parameters defined by Awardable. This includes (i) use in connection with Awardable services, (ii) use for personal entertainment purposes, and (iii) use in ways expressly permitted under the applicable Awardable Terms. The license to use Points may be revoked if a user violates the Awardable Terms, if their account is suspended or terminated, or if these User Terms or services are terminated.
6.4 Know Your Customer (KYC) and Compliance
Users who intend to sell their Points are required to complete the KYC process, which is a testament to our commitment to comply with all relevant laws and regulations, and maintain the integrity and security of our platform. By undergoing the KYC process, users agree to adhere to local, state, and federal tax laws as applicable. Failure to comply may result in actions including, but not limited to, termination of the user's account.
6.5 Revenue and Payments
For each transaction involving the sale of Points, Awardable retains a commission of 30% of the transaction amount. The remaining 70% is disbursed to the creators, subject to any necessary withholdings and deductions. Payments are managed through Stripe, our trusted partner for payment processing.
6.6 Subscription Cancellation
Users have the ability to cancel their subscriptions at any time through the “Cancel subscription” option located on the billing tab of the settings page. It is important to note that users will still be charged for the current billing period, even after cancellation.
6.7 Termination of Points
Points do not have an expiry date and cannot be revoked by the creator once they have been issued. However, Awardable reserves the right to discontinue and invalidate any custom-branded Points if they are found to be in violation of our terms or any laws.
6.8 Fraud and Money Laundering
Awardable enforces a zero-tolerance policy towards fraudulent activities and money laundering. Any attempts to exploit our platform for such illicit activities will be dealt with firmly, resulting in actions including immediate account deletion and reporting to the relevant authorities.
6.9 Age Requirement
To use Points, a user must be at least 18 years of age, unless otherwise stipulated by local or national laws. By creating Points, the user represents and warrants that they meet this age requirement.
6.10 Non-Refundability of Points
Unless required by law, all payments for Points are final and non-refundable.
6.11 Changeability of Points
Awardable reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to make alterations to Points at any time. This includes, but is not limited to, limiting the number of Points a user may acquire or reducing the purchase price of Points.
6.12 Financial Transactions
Only users who have reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction or state of residence are permitted to engage in financial transactions on Awardable, such as purchasing Points or subscribing to premium services.
6.13 User Responsibilities
6.14 Chargeback Policy
If you notice charges on your credit/debit card, PayPal, or other payment account that you did not authorize, please contact Awardable Support before disputing any charges directly with your payment processor. Once a charge has been disputed with your payment processor, Awardable cannot issue a refund due to prohibitions under the payment provider’s dispute process. Awardable reserves the right to suspend any account with unauthorized charges or to restrict an account’s ability to purchase Points, engage in trades, and/or purchase virtual content.
6.15 Prohibition of Selling Points Outside the Platform
Users are strictly prohibited from selling or trading Points for fiat currency or any other consideration outside the Awardable platform. Any attempts to circumvent our fees, policies, or terms, whether through creative structuring of transactions, third-party agreements, or other means, will result in immediate actions including, but not limited to, suspension, termination, legal action, or other remedies as deemed appropriate.
6.16 Restriction on API Usage for Fiat On-Ramps or Off-Ramps
Use of the Awardable API to create fiat on-ramps or off-ramps for Points is expressly prohibited. Awardable will take all necessary actions, including but not limited to legal action, suspension, or termination of the user's account if such activities are detected.
6.17 Prohibition on Money Laundering
Any use of our API or Points system to facilitate money laundering, including but not limited to creating, transferring, or redeeming Points in a manner that contravenes applicable anti-money laundering laws, is strictly forbidden. Violation of this policy will result in immediate action, including account termination and reporting to the relevant authorities.
6.18 Containment, Removal, and Reporting of Violations
Awardable reserves the right to contain, remove, and report any activities or content that violate these Terms or any applicable laws. The response to violations will depend on the severity and may include immediate escalation to legal authorities, suspension or termination of the user's account, and other actions as appropriate.

10. Links to Other Websites and Apps
Users of AWRD.GG must exercise caution when accessing links to external, third party websites, applications, and features provided for their convenience.

Furthermore, users are advised to be wary of unsolicited requests for personal information or payment, particularly if they appear to come from AWRD.GG or other trusted sources. Such requests may be part of social engineering schemes designed to deceive users into revealing sensitive information or making unauthorized payments.

14. Limitation of Liability
By using the AWRD.GG platform, you agree to assume responsibility for any potential liabilities, damages, or losses arising from your use of our platform and services. This section outlines the limitations of our liability in relation to various situations, including but not limited to platform misuse, intellectual property infringement, geolocation misuse, negligence, hate speech, and illegal content.
As a user of Awardable, you agree to maintain safe and appropriate contact with other users and individuals online and in the real world. You agree not to harass, threaten, or violate the legal rights of others. You shall not attempt to gain or gain access to any property or location where you do not have permission or the right to be, and shall not engage in any activity that may result in injury, death, property damage, nuisance, or liability of any kind. If you have any dispute with a third party related to your use of our Services, you hereby release AWRD.GG (including our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential), whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected to such disputes.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, AWRD.GG SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, AWRD.GG (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON AWRD.GG, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; OR (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM AWRD.GG.
IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US, IF ANY, IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR OTHERWISE LIMIT THE APPLICABILITY OF SOME OF THE LANGUAGE ABOVE. ACCORDINGLY, IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND THE LIABILITY OF AWRD.GG SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
This limitation of liability shall survive the termination or expiration of these Terms. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless AWRD.GG and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, and agents from any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, or expenses arising from or related to your use of the platform, including but not limited to platform misuse, intellectual property infringement, geolocation misuse, negligence, hate speech, or illegal content.

In the event of termination, you may no longer have access to information on AWRD.GG, and you shall immediately cease and desist all activities and rights granted to you under these Terms. Termination shall be without prejudice to your accrued rights and/or liabilities. Any provisions in these Terms which, by their nature, would be intended to survive termination or expiration of these Terms, shall survive the termination or expiration of these Terms, including without limitation, those provisions which expressly survive such termination or expiration.
16. Data Use Agreement
We provide certain creators on our platform with the ability to download limited user data, specifically, usernames, handles, or email addresses associated with the platform that the creator is utilizing. This data pertains specifically to the account used for badge collecting verification. No other user data, such as other usernames or connected accounts, is included in this download. This functionality is intended to promote user engagement and enhance the overall platform experience.
All users must opt-in to allowing their data to be shared with anyone. By default, all users are set to the most elevated privacy settings.
By downloading user data from our platform, creators agree to the following:
- The downloaded data, limited to usernames, handles, or email addresses associated with the platform used for badge collecting verification, shall be used solely for outreach and engagement with the badge collectors. Any other use of the data is strictly prohibited, unless explicit consent is obtained from the user.
- Creators shall not share, sell, or otherwise disclose the downloaded data to any third party without the explicit consent of the user.
- Creators shall respect the privacy and rights of the users whose data is downloaded and shall take all reasonable measures to secure the data and prevent unauthorized access or misuse.
- Creators shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations pertaining to data protection and privacy in their respective jurisdictions.
- Creators must inform their badge collectors about the use of their data and obtain their explicit consent before using their information for outreach or other purposes.
- Creators understand and agree that any misuse of the data may result in termination of their access to our platform and may subject them to legal action.
- Creators indemnify and hold harmless our platform against any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses incurred as a result of the unauthorized or unlawful use of the downloaded data.
- This agreement is subject to the laws of [Your Jurisdiction], and creators agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in [Your Jurisdiction] for any dispute arising out of this agreement.
17. Dispute Resolution
Please read the following arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with AWRD.GG (“Disputes”) and limits the manner in which you can seek relief therefrom. The Arbitration Agreement survives termination or expiration of these Terms.
17.1 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
We are always interested in resolving Disputes amicably and efficiently, and most User concerns can be resolved quickly and to the User’s satisfaction by contacting customer support at [email protected]. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (a “Notice”). The Notice to us should be sent to [email protected] (the “Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If we and you do not resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received by us, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.
17.2 Agreement to Arbitrate
After the pre-arbitration dispute resolution process, you agree that any and all remaining Disputes that have arisen or may arise between you and us, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof), the NFTs, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, and any threshold questions of arbitrability of the Dispute, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that (a) you may assert individual claims in small claims court within the scope of its jurisdiction, if your claims qualify and (b) you or we may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The United States Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
17.3 Arbitration Procedures
You agree that any Dispute will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Consumer Arbitration Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the Consumer Arbitration Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and threshold arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement or the Dispute. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by the arbitrator. If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the Consumer Arbitration Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Consumer Arbitration Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
17.3 Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of relief sought is more than US$10,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, we will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules.
17.4 ARBITRATION OPT-OUT
YOU MAY OPT OUT OF RESOLVING DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION BY EMAILING US AT [email protected] WITHIN 30 DAYS OF FIRST ACCEPTING THE THESE TERMS, AND TELLING US YOU WOULD LIKE TO OPT OUT OF MANDATORY ARBITRATION, OTHERWISE YOU SHALL BE BOUND TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME, YOUR MAILING ADDRESS, YOUR EMAIL, AND YOUR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER IN THE EMAIL. IF YOU OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, WE WILL ALSO NOT BE BOUND BY ARBITRATION.
17.5 Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S); EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the section entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of the section above entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms will continue to apply. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and the Terms shall be enforceable as so modified.
