Welcome to AppDog (hereinafter the "Site," "Us," "Our" or "We"). The following terms and conditions and any other policies, notices, rules or guidelines posted on the Site govern your use of the Site. Because these Terms and Conditions contain legal obligations, please read them carefully.
This site operates an promotion program where consumers can receive a gift after fulfilling participation requirements. Gifts may require some or all of the following participation requirements: a purchase; agreement to receive, activate and use a credit card or fund a loan; enroll in a free trial program; and/or become a member of a program that will result in recurring charges ("Sponsor Offers"). Some gifts require that you complete one or more Sponsor Offers that require a purchase. We reserve the right to substitute any gift with another gift of similar value or to provide the cash equivalent of any gift at Our sole discretion.
PLEASE NOTE: We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify or otherwise alter these Terms and Conditions at any time. Unless otherwise indicated, amendments will become effective immediately. Please review these Terms and Conditions periodically. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes and/or modifications will constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms and Conditions and the reasonableness of these standards for notice of changes. For your information, this page was last updated as of the date at the bottom of these terms and conditions. You can obtain a printed copy of the most current Terms and Conditions by writing to us at the address set forth in the notice provision below.
a. To be eligible to participate in the our gifts program, you must be at least 18 years of age at the time of registration and reside in the continental United States, Alaska or Hawaii. Only one gift per household and there must be no other accounts in your household. Corporations or other business entities are not eligible to participate.
b. Eligible participants must comply with the following rules and requirements ("Program Requirements") in order to receive a gift: (i) establish and maintain only one account, and that account must be registered to a unique e-mail address; (ii) provide valid and truthful information as requested by the Site or a participating advertiser; (iii) have cookies enabled; and (iv) access a required advertiser?s site through the Site.
c. By using this site, you represent that you will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for restricting access to your computer. You also agree to be responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with your responsibilities and obligations under these Terms and Conditions. By entering any information on this Site, you represent and warrant that you: (i) are at least 18 years of age as of the date of registration; (ii) are using your actual identity; (iii) have provided only true, accurate, current and complete information; (iv) will maintain and promptly update the information that you provide to keep it true, accurate, current and complete, and provide documentation of such information; and (v) are a bona fide consumer using the Site solely for your own enjoyment and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third parties or for any other purpose.
d. Users of the AppDog services shall not tamper, hack, spoof, copy, or otherwise defraud the service. Violation may result in the termination of your account, and any product(s) purchased may be revoked. Furthermore, AppDog reserves the right to prosecute users to the full extent provided by law.
a. In order to successfully complete the AppDog requirements and receive your gift, you must initiate the completion of the third-party offer ("advertiser offer") from within the AppDog transaction process ("AppDog Transaction Process"). Any transactions that do not originate from within the AppDog site will not be tracked by our advertising partners and you will not be credited for your gift selections.
b. We expect you to fully understand and comply with the instructions and restrictions explicitly stated during the AppDog Transaction Process. Unless stated otherwise, offers may only be completed once per person/once per household or be limited to new members only. In the event that you attempt to complete an offer more than once, you shall not be eligible to receive your paid app, and your AppDog account may be permanently revoked.
c. Depending on the advertising offer completed, there may a delay in receiving your iTunes gift due to a delay in reporting of offer completion to AppDog from the third-party. The times specified in the AppDog Transaction Process for order fulfillment are estimates only. In cases where the delay exceeds the estimated completion time, you may submit proof of the completed advertiser offer(called a "receipt") for manual review. If approved by AppDog you will be manually credited with your free product/service. AppDog in its sole discretion has the right to accept or deny any such receipts and is not obliged to provide any reasons for its decisions. Receipts submitted 45 days after the offer was initiated will not be considered.
d. AppDog does not warranty, guarantee, or offer any support for the product(s) purchased through the AppDog Transaction Process nor the product(s) or service(s) received when completing the third-party offer.
e. You may not sign up for an advertiser offer with the intent to immediately cancel or return the item or service from the advertiser. A "quick cancellation" is considered to be fraudulent, and may void your order and iTunes gift. AppDog may, at its discretion, suspend or revoke your right to use the AppDog service if you are found to have engaged in such activity.
We may, at Our sole discretion and for any reason or no reason at all, terminate any account and deny any gift without prior notice for (a) any violation of any provision of these Terms or Conditions; (b) aiding in or promoting circumvention of the our gifts program, including, but not limited to, using any account to accrue a free gift for a third party or using a third party's account to accrue a free gift for yourself; (c) acting against the business interests or reputation of the Site; (d) otherwise acting unlawfully in relationship to the Site or the gifts program; (e) our reasonable suspicion of any of the activity listed in 5(a)-(d); or (g) any other reason at our reasonable discretion. If your account is terminated, you may not re-enroll or join under a new account without our prior written authorization. You may cancel your membership at anytime by sending an Email.
