Welcome to Mobee, a service operated by Hooky, Inc. ("Mobee," "we," or "us"). Our service ("Service") enables our customers ("Mobee Customers") to deploy Mobee's network of geographically distributed workers (the "Mobee Users") to collect and verify data requested by such customers as part of what we define below as Missions.
However, this Agreement does not apply to any individual using the Service in his or her capacity as an employee, agent or representative of a Mobee Customer.
Please review the following terms carefully (this "Agreement"). This Agreement is an electronic contract that sets out the legally binding terms of relationship between Mobee and you. THESE TERMS WILL GOVERN YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES. BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, USING THE SERVICES AND COMPLETING MISSIONS, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS.
Mobee reserves the right to change this Agreement, and any additional terms at any time, effective upon making the modified provisions available on the Services or by notifying Mobee Users directly. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Agreement. Continued use of the Services and/or the Mobee Mobile Application after any such changes are made to this Agreement shall constitute your consent to such changes. Mobee does not and will not assume any obligation to notify Mobee Users of any changes to this Agreement, or the creation or modification of any additional terms.
Use of the Services is permitted only by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable Law. Without limiting the foregoing, you must be at least 18 years old to become a Mobee User. If you do not qualify, please do not submit an application to become a Mobee User.
Capitalized terms are defined as set forth below or elsewhere in the Agreement.
means the deliverables specified in a Mission for delivery by a Mobee User to Mobee for provision to a Mobee Customer, including images, photographs and information.
means a notice of a Mission provided by Mobee to one or more Mobee Users displayed on t, which includes a description of the services to be provided by the Mobee Users and the associated Deliverables (the "Mission"), the date by which the Mission must be completed (the "Mission Completion Date") and the rewards associated with the Mission (the "Reward"). Once a Mobee User has accepted a Mission Request pursuant to Section 2, the Mission Request will become a "Mission Engagement".
means the mobile application provided by Mobee to you under a separate license Agreement through which you can view, accept or reject Missions and provide Deliverables in connection with the Service.
For any Mission Engagement, you agree to use your best efforts to perform the Mission such that the Deliverables are satisfactory to us and the Mobee Customers. By accepting a Mission Request, you are entering into a binding legal agreement with Mobee to provide the Deliverables for the Reward specified in the Mission Request. Do not accept a Mission Request unless you are sure that you understand what you are being asked to deliver.
In order to accept Missions, you may be required to become a Registered User. For purposes of these Terms, a "Registered User" is a User who has registered an account on the Service ("Account") or has a valid account on the social networking service ("SNS") through which the User has connected to the Services (each such account, a "Third Party Account"). If you access the Service through an SNS as part of the functionality of the Service, you may link your Account with Third Party Accounts by allowing us to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to grant Mobee access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein) without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Mobee to pay any fees or making Mobee subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers. By granting Mobee access to any Third Party Accounts, you understand that Mobee will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account ("SNS Content") so that it is available on and through the Service via your Account. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Mobee’s access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Services. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Account and your Third Party Accounts at any time by accessing the "Settings" section of the Website. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. Mobee makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or noninfringement and Mobee is not responsible for any SNS Content.
By accessing and using the Service through the Mobee Mobile Application you acknowledge and agree that you may receive certain communications from us and you agree and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for all fees you may incur from the provider or carrier of the mobile services that you use, including for data. When you use the Service, our Mobee Mobile Application may pull your location-based information from your mobile device. You hereby authorize us and our Mobee Mobile Application to take such action.
Mobee shall pay the Reward for each Mission within fifteen (15) days after the Mobee Customer’s acceptance of the Deliverables associated with the Mission, provided that Mobee may deduct any payment processing fees it incurs from the amount of the Reward. Rewards will be in the denomination and currency of Mobee’s choosing (including gift or other stored value cards issued and redeemed by third parties). Mobee will not pay you the Reward for a Mission if the Mobee Customer rejects the Deliverables associated with that Mission or if you otherwise breach this Agreement. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and for all expenses incurred by you in connection with performing the Missions or otherwise performing your obligations under this Agreement. We may be obligated by law to obtain tax information from you and/or provide certain information to government authorities. If we request tax information from you and you do not provide it, we may (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold your Rewards until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Mobee is not involved in, and has no responsibility for, the redemption of Rewards.
Nothing in this Agreement is intended or should be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship between Mobee and you or between the Mobee Customer and you. You will take no position with respect to or on any tax return or application for benefits, or in any proceeding directly or indirectly involving Mobee that is inconsistent with your being an independent contractor (and not an employee) of Mobee. You are not the agent of Mobee or the Mobee Customer and you are not authorized, and must not represent to any third party that you are authorized, to make any commitment or otherwise act on behalf of Mobee or the Mobee Customer. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
You are not entitled to or eligible for any benefits that Mobee may make available to its employees, such as group insurance, profit-sharing or retirement benefits. Because you are an independent contractor, Mobee will not withhold or make payments for social security or payroll taxes of any kind, make unemployment insurance or disability insurance contributions, or obtain workers’ compensation insurance on your behalf, nor you will be entitled to any of the foregoing. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, you are reclassified as an employee of Mobee, or any affiliate of Mobee, by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of Labor, or any other federal, state or foreign agency as the result of any administrative or judicial proceeding, you agree that you will not, as the result of such reclassification, be entitled to or eligible for, on either a prospective or retrospective basis, any employee benefits under any plans or programs established or maintained by Mobee. In addition, you waive any and all rights, if any, to participation in any of the fringe benefit plans or programs including, but not limited to, health, sickness, accident or dental coverage, life insurance, disability benefits, severance, accidental death and dismemberment coverage, unemployment insurance coverage, workers’ compensation coverage, and pension or 401(k) benefit(s) provided by Mobee to its employees.
You are solely responsible for filing all tax returns and submitting all payments as required by any federal, state, local, or foreign tax authority arising from the payment of Rewards to you under this Agreement, and you agree to do so in a timely manner. If applicable, Mobee will report the Rewards paid to you under this Agreement by filing Form 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service as required by law. You will regularly report amounts paid to Consultant with the appropriate taxing authorities, as required by law.
You will comply with all applicable federal, state, local, and foreign laws governing self-employed individuals, including laws requiring the payment of taxes, such as income and employment taxes, and social security, disability and other contributions.
You agree that you will use the Service and Mobee Mobile Application to provide the Deliverables for each Mission to Mobee as described in each Mission Details & Instructions page on or before the applicable Mission Completion Date.
You agree that the Deliverables will be the sole and exclusive property of Mobee. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally assign to Mobee all right, title and interest worldwide in and to the Deliverables and all intellectual property rights thereto, including but not limited to all copyrights, moral rights, and similar rights of every kind and nature. If any intellectual property rights, including moral rights, cannot (as a matter of law) be assigned by you to Mobee, then (a) you unconditionally and irrevocably waive the enforcement of such rights and all claims and causes of action of any kind against Mobee with respect to such rights, and (b) to the extent you cannot (as a matter of law) make such waiver, you unconditionally grant to Mobee an exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, fully-paid license, with the right to sublicense through multiple levels of sublicensees, under any and all such rights to reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, digitally transmit and otherwise use the Deliverables in any medium or format, whether now known or hereafter discovered, and to exercise any and all other present or future rights in the Deliverables. At Mobee’s request, you will (i) cooperate and assist Mobee both during and after the term of this Agreement, in perfecting, maintaining, protecting and enforcing Mobee’s rights in the Deliverables, and (ii) execute and deliver to Mobee any document deemed necessary or appropriate by Mobee in its discretion to perfect, maintain, protect or enforce Mobee’s rights in the Deliverables or otherwise carry out the purposes of this Agreement. You hereby irrevocably designate and appoint Mobee and its duly authorized officers and agents as your agent and attorney-in-fact to act for and on your behalf to execute, deliver and file any and all documents with the same legal force and effect as if executed by you, if Mobee is unable for any reason to secure your signature on any document needed in connection with the actions described in this section. You acknowledge that this appointment is coupled with an interest.
During the term of this Agreement and at all times thereafter, you will (a) hold all Confidential Information in strict trust and confidence, (b) refrain from using or permitting others to use Confidential Information in any manner or for any purpose not expressly permitted or required by this Agreement, and (c) not disclose or permit others to disclose any Confidential Information to any third party without obtaining Mobee’s express prior written consent on a case-by-case basis. "Confidential Information" means any and all information related to Mobee’s or any Mobee Customer’s business (including trade secrets, technical information, business forecasts and strategies, marketing plans, customer and supplier lists, personnel information, financial data, and proprietary information of third parties including Mobee Customers) that Mobee considers to be confidential or proprietary or Mobee has a duty to treat as confidential. Any Missions or Mission Requests are Confidential Information and cannot be disclosed to third parties.
You will protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner as you protect your own confidential or proprietary information of a similar nature, and with no less than reasonable care.
You will not attempt to reverse engineer, de-encrypt, or otherwise derive the design, internal logic, structure or inner workings (including algorithms and source code) of the Mobee Mobile Application, any other software, products, models, prototypes, or other items provided by Mobee that use, embody, or contain Confidential Information.
Your obligations under Sections 6.1 and 6.2 will terminate with respect to any particular information that you can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, (a) you lawfully knew prior to Mobee’s first disclosure to you, (b) a third party rightfully disclosed to you free of any confidentiality duties or obligations, or (c) is, or through no fault of you has become, generally available to the public. Additionally, you will be permitted to disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is expressly approved in writing by Mobee, or is required by law or court order, provided that you immediately notify Mobee in writing of such required disclosure and cooperate with Mobee, at Mobee’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure, including filing motions and otherwise making appearances before a court.
Return. Upon Mobee’s request and upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement, you will promptly (a) return to Mobee or, if so directed by Mobee, destroy all tangible embodiments of the Confidential Information (in every form and medium), (b) permanently erase all electronic files containing or summarizing any Confidential Information, and (c) certify to Mobee in writing that you have fully complied with the foregoing obligations.
You represent and warrant that you are not subject to any contract or duty that would be breached by entering into or performing your obligations under this Agreement, or any Mission Engagement, or that is otherwise inconsistent with this Agreement, or any Mission Engagement.
You represent, warrant, and covenant that:
(a) You will not, in the course of performing any Mission, infringe or misappropriate, and neither the Deliverables nor any element thereof will infringe or misappropriate, any intellectual property right or other of any other person, including rights of privacy and publicity; (b) All Deliverables and all elements thereof are your original works and you have all rights necessary to grant the rights set forth in this Agreement; Neither the Deliverables nor any element thereof will be subject to any restriction, mortgage, lien, claim, pledge, security interest, or encumbrance when delivered by you to Mobee; (d) You will not grant, directly or indirectly, any right or interest in any Deliverable to any other person; (e) You have full right, power, and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement without the consent of any third party (including any of your current or former employers); (f) The Deliverables will fully conform to the specifications, requirements, and other terms in the applicable Mission Engagement and this Agreement, and will be of a professional and workmanlike quality. In the event of a breach of this warranty, without limiting any other rights or remedies Mobee may have, you will promptly replace the Deliverables at no additional charge to Mobee
You will indemnify and hold harmless Mobee and its affiliates, employees, and agents from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, and other expenses (including attorneys’ and expert witnesses’ costs and Rewards) arising from or relating to any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, or obligation in this Agreement, or any Mission Engagement, by you or any intentional misconduct or negligence by you in performing any Mission.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK, AND THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. ALL MISSION ENGAGEMENTS ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
IN NO EVENT WILL MOBEE BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT. MOBEE’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (A) TEN DOLLARS ($10.00) AND (B) AGGREGATE AMOUNT OF REWARDS OWED BY MOBEE FOR MISSIONS PERFORMED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE SIX-MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE OCCURRENCE OF THE FIRST CLAIM TO GIVE RISE TO LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor" and you waive any other similar provision of the laws of any other applicable jurisdiction.
Mobee may terminate this Agreement and/or any Mission Engagement, in whole or in part, at any time with or without cause for its convenience, effective upon one (1) day notice to you, in which case Mobee is obligated to pay you Rewards earned by you through the effective date of termination or expiration. Mobee may withdraw any Mission Request at any time prior to your acceptance thereof pursuant to Section 2. Reasons for termination include, but are not limited to, creation of multiple accounts, reverse engineering, misuse of Mobee, etc.
Effective upon fifteen (15) days prior written notice to Mobee, you may terminate this Agreement at any time if there are no unperformed Missions as of the effective date of termination. You must complete all outstanding Mission Engagements.
Sections 3, 4, 5.1, 6, 8, 9, 10.3, and 11 will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. Termination or expiration of this Agreement will not affect either party’s liability for any breach of this Agreement such party may have committed before such expiration or termination.
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to any conflict of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. You irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Delaware for any suit or action arising from or related to this Agreement, and waive any right you may have to object to the venue of such courts. You further agree that these courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any such suit or action initiated by you against Mobee.
If any dispute, controversy or claim arises between the parties under, out of, or in relation to this Agreement, including any dispute concerning the formation, construction, interpretation, or breach of this Agreement or a party’s performance of its obligations hereunder ("Dispute"), the parties shall attempt in the first instance to resolve the Dispute through mutual good faith consultation. If the Dispute is not resolved in this manner within forty-five (45) days of a party’s notice of a Dispute, then any party may serve a notice on the other party requiring the Dispute to be submitted to arbitration as follows:
11.2.1 Any Dispute (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with this Agreement where the total amount of the award sought is less than five thousand U.S. Dollars (US$ 5,000.00) may be resolved in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. Such arbitration shall be initiated through an established alternative dispute resolution provider ("ADR Provider") that offers arbitration as set forth in this section and under the rules of such ADR Provider, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with this Agreement. The party demanding arbitration will propose an ADR Provider and the other party shall not unreasonably withhold consent to use such ADR Provider. The ADR Provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English; c) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and d) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney Rewards) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the Rewards and costs of the ADR Provider.
11.2.2 Any other Dispute (including whether the claims asserted are arbitrable) shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "Rules") and shall be administered by the Boston, Massachusetts office of JAMS (the "Administrator"). To the extent there is any conflict between the provisions set forth in this section and any procedural or other rules issued by the Administrator, this section will control. The location of the arbitration will be Boston, Massachusetts USA. The Dispute(s) shall be submitted to a single arbitrator ("Arbitrator") chosen by the parties or selected by the parties from a list of potential arbitrators provided by the Administrator. The Administrator shall provide such list to the parties 10 days after request by either party. Should the parties be unable to agree on a choice of arbitrator within 10 days after receipt of the list from the Administrator, then the Administrator will select the Arbitrator. The arbitral proceedings, and all pleadings and written evidence will be in the English language. Any written evidence originally in a language other than English will be submitted in English translation accompanied by the original or true copy thereof. The English language version will control. Each party shall bear its own attorney’s fees, costs, and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Administrator and the Arbitrator; provided, however, the Arbitrator shall be authorized to determine whether a party is the prevailing party, and if so, to award to that prevailing party reimbursement for its reasonable attorneys’ Rewards, costs and disbursements (including, for example, expert witness Rewards and expenses, photocopy charges, travel expenses, etc.), and/or the Rewards and costs of the Administrator and the Arbitrator. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The Arbitrator will not have authority to award damages in excess of the amount, or other than the types, allowed by Section 9 of this Agreement. Judgment on the award of the Arbitrators may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The Arbitrator also shall be authorized to grant any temporary, preliminary or permanent equitable remedy or relief it deems just and equitable and within the scope of this Agreement, including, without limitation, an injunction or order for specific performance. The arbitration award shall be final and binding upon the parties without appeal or review except as permitted by California law or United States Federal law.
11.2.3 By using the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration provision. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Mobee (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may proceed directly to any court of competent jurisdiction to seek protection or enforcement of its intellectual property rights and/or to seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief.
If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
This Agreement and your rights and obligations under this Agreement may not be assigned, delegated, or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, by you without Mobee’s express prior written consent. Any attempted assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Mobee may assign this Agreement or any of its rights under this Agreement to any third party with or without your consent.
Mobee may give any notice required by this Agreement by means of a general notice on the Service, electronic mail to your email address on record with Mobee, or by written communication sent by first class mail or pre-paid post to your address on record with Mobee. Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of forty-eight (48) hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or twelve (12) hours after sending (if sent by email). You may give notice to Mobee, addressed to the attention of Prahar Shah. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Mobee by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the following address: 45 School Street, Boston, MA 02108
Mobee’s remedies for any breach of this Agreement by you will include damages, injunctive relief, specific performance, and restitution. You acknowledge that any breach of this Agreement by you would cause irreparable injury to Mobee for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and, therefore, Mobee will be entitled to injunctive relief (including specific performance). The rights and remedies provided to each party in this Agreement are cumulative and in addition to any other rights and remedies available to such party at law or in equity.
All waivers must be in writing and signed by the party to be charged. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
Time is of the essence in the performance of the Missions and your other obligations under this Agreement.
This Agreement is the final, complete, and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior or contemporaneous communications and understandings between the parties. Except as permitted herein, no modification of or amendment to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party to be charged.
In the event that you provide Mobee with any feedback regarding the Service or the Mobee Mobile Application, including without limitation, any flaws, errors, bugs, anomalies, problems with and/or suggestions for the Service or the Mobee Mobile Application ("Feedback"), you hereby assign to Mobee all rights in the feedback, including but not limited to, the right to use such feedback and related information in any manner we deem appropriate.
Mobee reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Mobee Mobile Application or the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Mobee shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Mobee Mobile Application or the Service.
