Introduction

These Terms of Service set forth the conditions under which Appsfire Services (as described herein) are provided.

Appsfire develops the Appsfire SDK (SDK) which you may integrate in your mobile app for the purpose of engaging and communicating with your app’s users (Engagement) and/or for the purpose of generating revenues via ad placements (Monetization). Integration of the SDK should be made according to the documentation which is accessible via the Appsfire dashboard (Dashboard) available on Appsfire.com (Site) - altogether, the Services.

By using the Services, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions contained herein (the “Terms of Service”) which may be updated by Appsfire from time to time without prior notice. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions contained in these Terms of Service, you may not access or otherwise use the Services.

We may, in our sole discretion, modify these Terms of Service with or without your notice. By continuing to access and use the Services after these Terms of Service have been modified, you are agreeing to such modifications.

You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract, or that if you are registering on behalf of an entity, that you are authorized to enter into, and bind the entity to, these Terms of Service and register for the Services. Appsfire may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time.

Service Use and Termination

In order to use the Services, you are required to register with Appsfire and enter your email address which will be used by Appsfire for all future communication including maintenance announcements, Service modifications, payout updates etc. and so it is required that you enter a valid email address to which you have constant access.

These Terms of Service are effective as long as or until terminated either by you or by Appsfire. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time, provided that you discontinue any further use of the Services. Appsfire also may terminate or suspend these Terms of Service, at any time, without notice, and accordingly deny you access to the Services, for any reason, including without limitation, if in Appsfire's sole discretion you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service or your use is harmful to the interests of Appsfire and/or our business partners. Altering, modifying or changing the visual design or functionality of Appsfire Engagement Services on the Publisher App from the way it is presented on the SDK documentation would be regarded as a misuse of Appsfire SDK for that matter. Appsfire reserves the right to immediately terminate the Services and revoke any payouts if Publisher acts, via our Services or regardless, in a manner which contradicts applicable law and standards.

If you are using Appsfire services to monetize your apps with ads, Appsfire reserves the right to immediately pause your use of the services in the case of not satisfying performance of ads in your inventory, until the parties have put in reasonable efforts to improve performance to an acceptable level, at Appsfire’s discretion.

Appsfire reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Appsfire shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the Services.

Publishers who utilize the Appsfire Monetization Services (by distributing Appsfire Ads) are exempt from payment.

Payout terms - Monetization Services

Payouts by Appsfire to Publishers distributing Appsfire Ads, are made on a monthly schedule and according to the Payout Grid. Each month, typically by the 7th day of that month, Appsfire calculates the Monthly Report for the preceding month, and makes a payment if Balance is above US$500. The Payout Grid and its terms are subject to change by the Appsfire team from time to time.

You agree that any payments that may become due to you (as described in these Terms of Service and on the Site) are specifically conditioned upon Appsfire's receipt of full payment from the applicable advertiser. If Appsfire does not receive the applicable payment in full from any such advertiser, Appsfire shall have no liability or responsibility to you (and you hereby release Appsfire) with respect thereto.

You agree that Appsfire, in its sole discretion, will utilize, on your app, whatever parts of inventory it sees fit according to its own considerations and optimization calculations. Appsfire shall not be liable for any payment based on (i) any fraudulent impressions generated by any person, robot, automated program or similar device or for fraudulent impressions similarly generated on any advertisements, as reasonably determined by Appsfire; (ii) impressions commingled with a significant number of fraudulent impressions or fraudulent clicks described in (i) above; (iii) any breach of these Terms of Service by you, (iv) if the Publisher’s app, at any time, infringes the law and in particular any copyright or registered trademark or (v) if the Publisher App is no longer distributed in Apple’s App Store or Google Play Store

You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your use of the Services.

Dashboard

Privacy

By using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, and you agree to be bound by, the terms of our Privacy Policy.

Appsfire does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Should your Mobile Properties be directed to children under the age of 13 or should you collect information from children under the age of 13 (further collectively referred as “Children’s Content”), we require you at all times to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), as amended from time to time. We require you to use the tools available in the Appsfire Services to designate users of your Mobile Properties that are under 13 or who have otherwise opted-out of personal information collection. Should you choose not to designate such users, we will assume that such users are not under the age of 13 or have not opted-out of personal data collection. Appsfire will not actively monitor your Mobile Properties for Children’s Content and compliance with COPPA, therefore, we disclaim liability for your failure to properly designate users through the Appsfire Services and your failure to honor your obligations set forth herein.
