You should read the complete legally binding terms of service further down the page, but here are the most important things according to us:
The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) and the Registration form and Member form (together the “Agreement”) govern the relationship between StageZero Oy (hereinafter “StageZero”) and you regarding the use of the StageZero websites and applications (hereinafter “Platform”) provided to enable you to participate in the provisioning of content (defined below in section 2) to StageZero.
StageZero provides the Platform through which the Users may earn in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties by producing Content through the Platform for StageZero’s and various other parties’ use.
Subject to the User’s acceptance of these Terms, the User may download, access or otherwise use the Platform. These Terms affect the User’s legal rights and obligations, so if the User does not agree to the Terms, the User may not access or use the Platform.
The User must be at least 16 years old to use the Platform. By downloading, logging in or otherwise using the Platform, the User represents that they are age 16 or older. If the User is not old enough to have authority to agree to these Terms in the User’s country or territory, the User represents that their parent, legal guardian or legal representative has reviewed and agreed to these Terms and has given the User permission to access, use and provide Content through the Platform and given the parental consent for the processing of personal data in relation to information society services when required so in applicable law.
StageZero can make changes to these Terms at any time in accordance with these Terms, and the continued use of the Platform for the provision of Content shall confirm the User’s acceptance of the updated Terms.
When the User accesses the Platform through a mobile network, the User’s network or roaming provider’s messaging, data and other rates and fees will apply. Downloading, installing or using the Platform may be prohibited or restricted by the User’s network provider and some or all parts of the Platform may not work with the User’s or network provider or device.
Once the User has accepted these Terms, the User may begin providing data such as speech recordings, pictures, opinions, annotations, and other data, which will be submitted on the Platform by the User (hereinafter "Content"). For the Content provided to StageZero, StageZero may, at its discretion, issue to the User in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties as set out on the Platform. When the Content is provided and submitted to StageZero, StageZero will review the Content with regard to the quality of the data (for example the sound and speech recording provided). Only Content which has data matching the description of the task will be counted. As an example, should the Content provided by the User consist of a blank recording or a recording where there are only inaudible sounds, this shall not be accepted. StageZero will have sole discretion on whether it accepts the Content provided or not, and whether StageZero issues to the User in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties.
Following StageZero accepting the Content, StageZero shall issue a payment in accordance with the terms set in Clause 8 below and subject to the Content provided being quality Content.
Under these Terms the User is given a license to use the Platform and provide Content. The license remains in effect until terminated by the User or by StageZero. The User may use the Platform only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
Should the User wish to cancel their license to use the Platform and provide Content, said User may do so at any time by uninstalling or deleting any applications relevant to the Platform and/or ceasing to use the Platform. The User acknowledges and accepts that the cancellation of the license is their sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute related to using the Platform and providing Content.
StageZero may, without prior notice, alter the Platform; stop providing the Platform or features of the Platform; or create usage limits for the Platform. StageZero may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend access to the Platform without notice and liability for any reason, including but not limited to, if in StageZero’s sole determination the User has violated any provision of these Terms.
Without prejudice to any other terms set forth in these Terms, the license will automatically terminate without notice from StageZero if the User in any way breaches any provision of these Terms.
Upon termination in accordance with these Terms for any reason, access to the Platform shall be ceased. The termination of the license to use the Platform for any reason shall not release the User from any liabilities or obligations set forth in these Terms which (a) have expressly been stated as surviving any such termination or expiration, or (b) remain to be performed, or by their nature would be intended to be applicable following any such termination or expiration.
Without limiting any other remedies, StageZero may limit, suspend, terminate, modify, or delete access to the Platform or parts thereof, if the User fails to comply, or if StageZero suspects such failure, with the Terms, or for any actual or suspected illegal or improper use of the Platform or provision of Content other than in accordance with the instructions provided by the Platform for said Content creation, without notice. The User may lose, as a result of termination or limitation of the right to use the Platform, the right to any or all in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties, at StageZero’s sole determination, and StageZero is not obligated to compensate the User for any rewards earned prior to the point of termination.
By accepting these Terms and providing the Content in exchange for in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties, the User accepts and agrees to assign to StageZero all right, title and interest in the Content (including the right to make modifications, alter and right to assign), and any copy, translation, modification, derivation and/or development thereof shall vest in, and be the sole and exclusive property of StageZero. For the avoidance of doubt, it is recorded here that in consideration of the exclusive rights of StageZero, StageZero shall have the sole right to copy, amend, modify, develop, sell, sublicense and assign the Content.
All rights, title and interest in and to the Platform (including the related software and media), the design of the Platform and associated content including text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein as well as any other intellectual property rights ("StageZero Property") are owned by or licensed to StageZero, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Finnish and foreign laws and international conventions. Except as expressly provided in the Terms, StageZero does not grant any express or implied rights to use StageZero Property.
The Users are hereby granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to access and use the StageZero Property and Platform only in connection to the provisioning of the Content in accordance with these Terms. Any other use of the Platform, and/or StageZero Property other than as specifically authorized in the Terms, and any use of the Platform other than in accordance with the directions provided for the tasks that appear in the Platform is prohibited, and will terminate the license to use the Platform or continue to provide the Content. For avoidance of doubt, no Users have the right to make use of, copy, save or retain, share, sell or otherwise solicit any material, StageZero Property or Content included on the Platform, unless specifically allowed.
The Platform is provided by StageZero "as is". To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, except as provided above, StageZero makes no warranty or representation, either expressed or implied with respect to the Platform, its quality, performance, correctness, non-infringement or fitness for a particular purpose. As a result, the Platform is provided "as is" and "as available" and the User is assuming the entire risk as to its quality and performance.
The User agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless StageZero, its affiliates, licensors, partners and subcontractors from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising from or related to the User’s use of the Platform, breach of these Terms or portion hereof, or any act or omission by the User relating to the Platform or Content. StageZero reserves the right to assume its own defense and/or control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by the User hereunder.
The User understands and acknowledges that StageZero will not be liable for any network related problems attributable to the operation of the Platform and that network configuration changes may affect the system's performance.
The User hereby acknowledges and agrees that StageZero shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with or arising from the User’s use of the Platform, as set forth herein, including any physical or software damage to the User’s devices. The User’s only right or remedy regarding any problems or dissatisfaction with the Platform is to uninstall the Platform or applications associated with the Platform and to discontinue the use of any webpages included in the Platform.
StageZero shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, lost profits, data or for business interruption arising out of the use of or inability to use the Platform, even if StageZero has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The liability of StageZero is in such case limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
Some jurisdictions may not allow (some) limitations of liability. In such cases, said limitations may not apply to the User in such jurisdiction.
The fee for provisioning of the Content shall be earned as set out in Clause 2, subject to the Content being accepted as quality Content by StageZero. Both parties shall bear and duly pay any taxes or levies imposed on them under the applicable laws that they incur.
Should StageZero not accept any or all Content provided, the full amount of in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties earned based on the Content provided will be decreased in accordance with the amount of unacceptable Content.
For the avoidance of doubt, StageZero is only obligated to give in-app currencies or rewards from 3rd parties so long as the User provides the Content in accordance with these Terms and grants all rights to the Content to StageZero as agreed in these Terms. StageZero has the right to recover the rewards provided, due to any breach of these Terms, non-provisioning of Content or requested deletion of Content.
The Platform may contain links to websites operated by third parties or feature content which is made available by third-party services and enable the User to access and use certain third-party services. Use of any websites operated by third parties, third-party services and/or content in third-party services shall be, in addition to these Terms, subject to the relevant third-party service provider’s terms and conditions applicable to use of such third-party services or the applicable license(s) under which any such content is made available. StageZero assumes no responsibility for such third-party services and/or content in third-party services.
StageZero shall comply with applicable data protection laws when processed any personal data under these Terms and commits to implement necessary technical and organizational measures in order to ensure safety of personal data. “Personal data” shall have the meaning defined in the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
StageZero shall have no obligation to provide support or maintenance for the Platform under these Terms. StageZero may, at its sole discretion, provide limited customer support in the Platform.
StageZero shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of StageZero, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond StageZero’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, epidemics, pandemics, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
These Terms do not affect any of the User’s statutory rights that under applicable law cannot be limited or excluded. If any particular provision of these Terms shall be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall not be affected or impaired.
If any User does not comply with these Terms, and StageZero does not take action right away, it does not mean that the User is not fully obligated to perform User obligations in the future, or that StageZero is giving up any rights, such as taking action in the future.
StageZero may assign or delegate its rights and obligations under the Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time without the User’s consent. The User may not assign or delegate rights or obligations under the Terms without StageZero’ prior written consent.
StageZero reserves the right to change any fees or in-app currencies or rewards made available through 3rd parties related to the provision of Content at any time, and the right to change, modify, add or remove portions of the Terms any given time. The Users should check the Terms regularly, an updated version can be found under https://stagezero.ai/terms-of-service/. The Users will be deemed to have accepted such changes by continuing to use the Platform. StageZero will, however, notify of changes by notice in the Platform of any substantial changes to the Terms. Further, if at any point the User does not agree to any portions of then-current version of the Terms or any other StageZero policy, rules or codes of conduct relating to the use of the Platform or provision of the Content, the User’s right to use the Platform and provide Content shall immediately terminate, and the User must immediately stop using the Platform and providing Content.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws in force in Finland. The official text of these Terms or any notices given or accounts or statements required hereby shall be in English.
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Service or these Terms, shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Finland Chamber of Commerce by one (1) arbitrator appointed according to the aforementioned rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English (or Finnish if both parties mutually so agree) language in Helsinki, Finland.
