This "Terms of Service" was written in English (US). To the extent any translated version of this agreement conflicts with the English version, the English version controls.
The products and services ("Services") of this website, adb.ug, (collectively referred to as the "Site" in these Terms of Service) is owned and operated by AdBug Inc. ("we", "us", "our", or "AdBug"). By using and accessing our Site, you ("You", "User" or, "End User") agree to these Terms of Service (collectively, the "Terms of Service" or "Agreement").
Don't misuse our Services. For example, don't interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services unless otherwise mentioned. Don't remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not AdBug's. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don't assume that we do.
In respects to becoming a member of this Site and using our Services, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (are at least 18 years old) and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the USA or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form (such information being the "Registration Data"), (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete and (c) agree to create only one account per person. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or AdBug has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, AdBug has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof).
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials ("Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that you, and not AdBug, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via our Services. AdBug does not control the Content posted via our Services and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using our Services, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will AdBug be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via our Services.
You agree to NOT use our Services for the following:
You acknowledge that AdBug may OR MAY NOT pre-screen Content, but that AdBug and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to PRE-SCREEN, refuse, or move any Content (or Account) that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, AdBug and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content or Accounts that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content or Accounts, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content or Accounts created by AdBug or submitted to AdBug, including without limitation information in AdBug message boards, and in all other parts of the Service.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online. If you think somebody is violating your copyrights and want to notify us, you can immediately contact us reporting this infringement through our contact page or by sending us an email to [email protected]. We require that you send us the report in English, and properly detailed with your full name, contact information, link leading/displaying to the infringement, description of copyrighted work, sworn statements, date, signature and all other assisting details. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we only accept copyright complaints from content owners or someone officially authorized to act on their behalf. If you have legal questions about the DMCA (the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site, http://www.copyright.gov), please consult your own legal counsel.
Our Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
With respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of AdBug, the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Service solely for the purposes of providing and promoting the specific Service which such Content was submitted or made available. This license exists only for as long as you elect to continue to include such Content on the Service and will terminate at the time you remove or adBug removes such Content from our Services.
"Publicly accessible" areas of our Services are those areas of AdBug that are intended by AdBug to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of our Services would include SdBug news and resources that are open to both members and visitors. However, publicly accessible areas of our Services would not include portions of AdBug that are limited to members, AdBug Services intended for private communication such as private messages, or areas off of AdBug such as portions of World Wide Web sites that are accessible through via hypertext or other links but are not hosted or served by AdBug.
Payments from AdBug are made through Payza ('http://www.payza.com') or Payoneer ('http://www.payoneer.com/').
Funds withdrawn will normally be processed on Friday of every week. For example, if you request for a withdrawal Sunday and Thursday, it will be processed on the Friday of that week; if requested on Friday itself, it will be processed on the next Friday.
Pending Balance: is the amount pending review before it is made available for withdrawal. We hold this amount to make sure that all the traffic delivered through our portals was legitimate and bounded by our terms of service. The pending balance will clear as soon as our staff validates your earning, which may be as fast as an hour to as late as 5 business days.
First Withdrawal: Pending balance will be held for a period of 5 business days before it is transferred to your available balance. This hold is made as a precautionary safety measure and will only be made prior to your first withdrawal.
Your earnings are based on what we charge our advertisers for demographically for their advertisement. You can always take a look at how much you earn by visiting our Pay Rates page.
