Last updated: October 3rd, 2023
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ACCESS OUR ONLINE PLATFORMS, REVIEW OUR EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION SERVICES, OR PURCHASE, TEST, OR USE OUR EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION SERVICES ONLINE OUTSIDE OF A FORMAL MSA RELATIONSHIP WITH US. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, DO NOT ACCESS OUR ONLINE PLATFORMS.
IF YOU OR YOUR ORGANIZATION HAVE ALREADY EXECUTED A SEPARATE MSA WITH US, THE PROVISIONS OF THAT MSA WILL GOVERN YOU RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMPANY AND ACCESS RIGHTS TO THE EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION SERVICES. PLEASE SPEAK WITH YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM TO RECEIVE A COPY OF, OR BETTER UNDERSTAND THE RIGHTS AND PROVISIONS IN, ANY SUCH MSA.
We offer our Online Platforms and Employee Recognition Services to help clients (and their staff) create a culture of recognition, meaningful engagement and rewards, and measurable promotion of core values. In furtherance of these goals, our Online Platforms create an interactive, rewards-based system for offering and redeeming awards by employees and staff. If you are visiting our Online Platforms as an employee or on behalf of an organization that has purchased access to the Employee Recognition Services for your use, your rights and access are generally governed by a separate master services agreement executed between your organization and the Company (each, an “MSA”). That said, if you or your organization have not yet formally subscribed to our Employee Recognition Services or executed a separate MSA with the Company, these Terms & Conditions govern your use of the Employee Recognition Services and your relationship with us—both to protect our rights and explain your options with respect to the Online Platforms.
We may revise and update these Terms & Conditions from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them to our Online Platforms, and the changes apply to all uses of the Online Platforms and general requests for Employee Recognition Services made by our customers thereafter. However, any changes or modifications to these Terms & Conditions will not apply retroactively. In addition, changes to these Terms & Conditions will not impact the binding effect of our separate MSA or services agreements with you or any other client, given that these Terms & Conditions are intended to more generally govern access to the Online Platforms (not stand-alone subscriptions or orders under an MSA).
3.1 Right of Access. Our Online Platforms are being made available for your personal use only for browsing, considering our Employee Recognition Services, and communicating with us. Subject to these Terms & Conditions, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, nontransferable, and revocable right of access or license, as applicable, to: (A) download, install, and use the Online Platforms or related applications for your personal use on any mobile device or computer owned or otherwise controlled by you; and (B) test, access, review, and use for your personal use on your mobile device or computer the content, features, functionality, and Employee Recognition Services hosted on our Online Platforms (collectively, the “Right of Access”). The grant of the Right of Access under this Section, however, does not supersede or amend any binding terms between us and you (or your organization) in a separate MSA.
3.2 Availability and Access. From time to time, at our discretion, we may restrict your access to certain portions of the Online Platforms, revoking the Right of Access described in Section 3.1 above. We reserve the right to withdraw or amend any of the offers, Employee Recognition Service details and descriptions, and other material we provide to you on our Online Platforms, at our sole discretion and without notice (subject only to the terms of any stand-alone MSA or binding agreement with you or your applicable organization). We will not be liable to you if for any reason all or any portion of the Online Platforms is unavailable at any time or for any period.
3.3 Modification. The Company reserves the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue any Employee Recognition Services (in whole or in part) or the Right of Access with or without notice to you. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Employee Recognition Services or the Right of Access, or any parts thereof. The Company shall use reasonable efforts to notify you of all modifications, suspensions, and updates to the Employee Recognition Services and these Terms & Conditions.
3.4 Account Responsibilities and Security. If you choose to create an online account with the Company as part of your online requests for Employee Recognition Services or general use of the Online Platforms (outside of an MSA relationship), you are solely responsible for retaining all login information and account names. You acknowledge that your account is personal to you, and you agree not to provide any other person with access to portions of your account containing your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password, or any other breach of security. Please exercise caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your secure information.
We have the right to disable any username, password, or other identifier at any time, at our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if you have violated any provision of these Terms & Conditions.
For the purposes of these Terms & Conditions, “Intellectual Property Rights” means all intellectual property rights worldwide arising under statutory or common law, and whether or not perfected, including, without limitation, all (A) patents, patent applications, and patent rights; (B) rights associated with works of authorship including copyrights, copyright applications, and copyright registrations; (C) rights relating to the protection of trade secrets and confidential information; (D) any other proprietary rights relating to intangible property (other than trademark, trade dress, or service mark rights); (E) divisions, continuations, renewals, reissues and extensions of the foregoing (as and to the extent applicable) now existing, hereafter filed, issued or acquired; and (F) all goodwill associated with any of the foregoing. The Online Platforms (including all content, Service offerings, source code, communications, features, software, text, published works, displays, images, sounds, video, graphics, designs, and online formatting) are owned by the Company, its licensors (if any), or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trade dress, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws. Use of any content or material on the Online Platforms without prior written authorization by the Company is strictly prohibited. We stress that the value of our Employee Recognition Services is based, in large part, on the unique works of authorships, trade secrets, or unique coding and design represented in the business solutions we deliver. As such, we will pursue all necessary action to protect the rights underlying those Employee Recognition Services.
These Terms & Conditions permit you to use the Online Platforms for your personal use (according to Section 3.1 above), including for Employee Recognition Service requests and account access. Accordingly, you must not unlawfully reproduce, distribute, modify, or create derivative works of any of the material on our Online Platforms (including the Employee Recognition Services), except as follows:
By using the Online Platforms, you agree not to delete or alter any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices from copies of materials from the Online Platforms. If you print, copy, modify, download, or otherwise use or provide any other person with access to any part of the Online Platforms in breach of the Terms & Conditions, your right to use the Online Platforms, including any account thereon, will stop immediately and you must, at our option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made.
EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, NO RIGHT, TITLE, OR INTEREST IN OR TO THE ONLINE PLATFORMS OR ANY CONTENT ON THE ONLINE PLATFORMS IS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, AND ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED ARE RESERVED BY THE COMPANY.

We pride ourselves on providing interactive Online Platforms that empower our visitors and client organizations to review the Employee Recognition Services in a professional environment.

If the Online Platforms contain links or plug-ins to other sites and resources provided by third parties (for example, sites where employee rewards may be redeemed), these links and plug-ins are provided for your convenience only and for your voluntary visiting, if you choose to do so. We stress that we have no control over the contents of those third-party sites or resources, and we accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third-party websites linked to our Online Platforms, you do so entirely at your own risk and are subject to the terms and conditions for such websites.

13.2 Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY, ITS AFFILIATES, OR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SITE OR ANY CONTENT ON THE ONLINE PLATFORMS. THIS LIMITATION EXPRESSLY PRECLUDES ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES AGAINST THE COMPANY, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE BY YOU OR US.

14.3 Governing Law. All matters relating to the Online Platforms and these Terms & Conditions, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Utah or any other jurisdiction). Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms & Conditions or the Online Platforms must be instituted exclusively in the federal or state courts of the State of Utah.

14.5 ADA Compliance. As you may already know, organizations that otherwise qualify as places of public accommodation must ensure that their public-facing websites comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (the “ADA”).
