Terms of Use

VERSION 1.1

The website located at www.postr.co.nz (the "Site") and the Postr Android application are copyrighted work belonging to Postr Media Ltd (“Postr", "us", "our", and "we"). Postr Media Ltd provides a mobile application (the "App", and collectively with the Site and all services provided through the Site and App, the "Services") that allows businesses to deliver advertisements to the App user's smartphone lock screen ("Advertisement") and compensates users with money (“Pocket Money”) and / or making charitable contributions to participating non-profit organizations. Certain features of the Services, may be subject to additional guidelines, terms, or rules, which will be posted on the Service in connection with such features. All such additional terms, guidelines, and rules are incorporated by reference into this Agreement.

THESE TERMS OF USE ("AGREEMENT") SETS FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS FOR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. THESE TERMS OF USE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE, FROM TIME TO TIME IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR SERVICES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT) AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT). YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, THE APP, OR SERVICES OR ACCEPT THE AGREEMENT IF YOU ARE NOT AT LEAST 14 YEARS OLD. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT ACCESS AND/OR USE THE SERVICES.

ACCOUNTS

1. Account Creation. In order to use certain features of the Site and the App (e.g., to use the Services), you must register for an account with Postr Media Ltd (“Postr Account") and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the applicable registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate and (b) you will provide us updates and maintain the accuracy of such information. You may delete your Postr Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions within the Services. Postr Media Ltd may suspend or terminate your Postr Account in accordance with Section 13 in USER INFORMATION.

2. Account Responsibilities. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Postr Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Postr Account. You agree to immediately notify Postr Media Ltd of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Postr Account or any other breach of security. Postr Media Ltd cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.

3. Account Limitations. We do not allow users to create multiple accounts using a single device. An individual may earn up to but not exceeding three cents of Pocket Money per every thirty minutes using the App when an Advertisement appears on the lock screen and is swiped at least once, either to unlock the phone or to engage with an Advertisement. Swiping daily wallpapers does not earn the user any Pocket money. An individual who creates multiple accounts to make money using the Services or one who earns more than three cents in one half-hour slot is considered to have breached Postr Media Ltd's Terms of Use, and Postr Media Ltd has the right to shut down his or her account. The Services are only available for use in New Zealand. All usage outside of New Zealand is not eligible to redeem Pocket Money.

4. Advertisements on your lock screen. When you download the App, Postr Media Ltd will display Advertisements on the lock screen of your mobile phone. By moving the “Postr" ring symbol to the engagement or unlock sign, you may earn Pocket Money in accordance with Section 3 above. Each time you earn Pocket Money, we place the Pocket Money in your Postr Account. You can redeem your Pocket Money in accordance with Section 5 below. Some of the Advertisements may be subject to additional terms and you agree to abide by those terms. The determination of what Advertisements you see, whether you have earned any Pocket Money and what products and services you may receive by redeeming your Pocket Money will be made entirely by us – and we do not guarantee that you will receive any Advertisements or Pocket Money.

5. Redeeming Pocket Money. After the 29th day of the month following any month of accruing Pocket Money, and when the cash out screen within the Services (the "Cash Out Screen") becomes available within the services, you can go to the Cash Out Screen and redeem the Pocket Money accrued in the previous month as long as the accrued money is equal to or greater in value of NZ$1.00. A bank fee of $0.20 will apply to all cash outs to your bank account. This bank fee will be deducted from your total cash out amount. While we reserve the right to modify the way that you can redeem Pocket Money, as of the Effective Date of this Agreement, you can redeem your Pocket Money by going to the part of the Services called the Cash Out Screen at the times when the Cash Out Screen becomes available as stated above. At the Cash Out Screen you can redeem your Pocket Money by distributing money to your own bank account or, by making a distribution to one of our partner charities listed within the “Donate” section within the Services. No bank fee will apply to donations made from your account. The Pocket Money remain the property of Postr Media Ltd, not you, at all times prior to the time that you successfully redeem your Pocket Money through the Services. We may elect to invalidate any Pocket Money at our discretion and if we do so, you will no longer be able to redeem the Pocket Money.

6. Closing Your Account. If you elect to close your Postr Account and you have accrued Pocket Money that is equal to or greater in value of NZ$1.00 in your Postr Account, we will ask you to redeem your balance prior to closing your Postr Account based on the terms stated in Section 5 above. If we terminate your Postr Account, or you fail to properly distribute your Pocket Money before closing your account, or if at the time of closing your account the Pocket Money in your Postr Account is valued at less than NZ$1.00, we may elect to invalidate that Pocket Money and you will no longer be able to redeem this.

7. Taxes. Postr Media Ltd complies with all tax reporting requirements. If the money distributed from your Postr Account exceeds applicable reporting requirements, we will report the distributions as income to the appropriate taxing authorities. You will be solely responsible for any and all tax liability arising out of your receipt of money from your Postr Account.

8. Inactivity. We value your continued participation in our Service. If, however, your Postr Account is inactive for an extended period of time, we may be required to remit the value of the Pocket Money in your Postr Account.

9. Privacy. We respect your privacy and, under most circumstances, will not pass on your personal details to third parties. If, however, you choose to donate your Pocket Money to one of the partnering charities of Postr within the services, we will provide your email address to the charity to which you have donated your Pocket Money. We will do so in order to give the charity to which you have donated your Pocket Money the ability to send you a receipt for a tax deductible donation, whether you require a receipt or not.

FAQ's

Q: How does this work?

A: Good question. You download the app, tell us what you're interested in and we'll serve ads to match your interests to your lock screen. You'll be able to make around $30 a month once we're fully booked with ads. For more info check out our video here http://postr.co.nz/about.html

Q: Are you guys making the app for iOS?

A: Thanks for your question. Initially we will launch on Android only but we're planning to build an iOS app soon.

Q: Are you guys making the app for Windows phones?

A: Initially we will launch on Android only but we're might launch and app for Windows phones some time down the track.

Q: If an ad is displaying on the lock screen, but my phone is asleep, does that still count towards the payments?

A: No, if you're phone is asleep or if you only check the time without swiping, you won't get paid. You will get paid as long you see an ad and swipe right to unlock OR swipe left to engage.

Q: How many times can I get paid each day?

A: You will get paid once per half hour if there is an ad on your lock screen as long as you swipe your phone at least once.

Q: Regarding 'cash out date' - how does this work?

A: You can cash out after the last day of the month following the month in which you've earned pocket money. For example, money earned in June may be cashed out on July 31st.

Q: Does the full amount have to be cashed out on that date?

A: No, you can cash out or donate partial amounts as long as the amount exceeds $1.

Q: Can my earned cash be carried over to the next month?

A: Yes, you don't have to cash out on the cash-out date and you may carry your earned money over to the next month.

Q: Does money earned ever 'expire'?

A: No, the money does not expire as long as you are actively using the Postr app to serve content to your lock screen. If your Postr Account is inactive (ie. you deinstall the app) for an extended period of time we may close your account, in which case the money would expire.

Q: How do I deactivate Login?

A: You can simply uninstall the app to deactivate your account.

Q: Where am I able to view the terms of use after signing up?

A: Terms of Use are in the footer here http://postr.co.nz/about.html#3rdPage

Q: Is there somewhere where we can easily view a basic outline of how the app works?

A: The app video can be seen here http://postr.co.nz/about.html

Q: Can I cash out with PayPal?

A: PayPal is currently not available, but you can cash out straight into your bank account.

Q: In terms of Clause 6 'Payment' in the Terms of Use – what fees are involved?

A: The only fee on Postr is a NZ 20 cents bank charge at cash out. Clause 6 in the Terms of Use is also an indemnification clause that protects us from further bank charges. It means that if your bank charges us for making a deposit into your bank account, we will ask your bank to refund that charge to us. In any normal scenario, this wouldn't apply as banks usually don't charge for accepting a deposit.

Q: How safe is it to provide my bank account details to guys?

A: We can't do withdraw any money with your bank account details alone, this is why organisations like the IRD make their bank account details publicly available. We can only use your bank account details to make a deposit INTO your account.

Q: How much mobile data does the app use?

A: The app uses minimal data - maximum around 20mb per month.

Q: Does a cash out have to be over a certain value before I can cash out?

A: Yes, the minimum cash out is $1.

Q: I have to swipe my own existing lock screen and then the app lock screen. Why does Postr duplicate my lock screen?

A: Unfortunately Android/Google do not let us use the native Android lock screen. This is why you're getting the double up. If you want just the Postr lock screen we recommend you disable your native lock screen in your phone's settings. We are looking into security integration solutions to prevent the double up in the future.

Q: Does Postr offer rewards for referring friends?

A: Yes, our Brand Ambassador program rewards chosen Postr brand ambassador's $1 for each sign up via unique referral code. If you're interested in becoming an ambassador, please send an email to info@postr.co.nz with 'Brand Ambassador' in the subject line.
