TAGG Terms of Service
In some instances, both these Terms and separate terms of service or guidelines setting forth additional conditions may apply to a service or product offered via the App (“Additional Terms”). Should this happen, the Additional Terms are incorporated by reference into these Terms. The Additional Terms are generally intended to be supplemental to these Terms, but to the extent there is an express conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise and/or unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law.
Your permission to use the App, Site and/or Services is conditioned upon your agreement that you:
- are 18 years of age or older or are using this with parental consent and guidance
- will comply with these Terms;
- are able to form a binding contract with us;
- are not prohibited by law from accessing our App, Site and/or Services or have not previously been banned, terminated or otherwise denied access to our App, Site and/or Services by us;
- are not acting on behalf of a person whose access to our App, Site and/or Services has been previously terminated or otherwise denied by us;
- will not impersonate another user of the App, Site and/or Services.
The communications between you and TAGG are always electronic. You consent to receive communications from TAGG in an electronic form. You agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing.
You will need to register with your Facebook, Twitter or email account when you download the app (“Account”) in order to use TAGG. No other person or entity may access the App or use the Services through your Facebook, Twitter or email credentials and you are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use. Individuals and entities whose privilege to access the App or use the Services has previously been terminated by TAGG may not register for an Account, nor may you designate any of those individuals to use your Account on your behalf.
TAGG relies on Facebook, Twitter and email credentials to know whether users accessing the App and using our Services are authorized to do so. If someone accesses our App or Services using your Facebook, Twitter or email credentials, we will assume that you are the one who has accessed the App using your credentials. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the App or use of the Services through your Facebook, Twitter and email credentials. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your credentials are being used without permission.
“TAGGing Your Purchase”
When you visit any of TAGG’s participating businesses you may TAGG your purchase, either by asking the cashier for a QR code to scan or submitting a picture of your receipt. If you choose to scan a QR code, the cashier will validate your purchase by providing a QR code to be scanned within the app to process the donation from the business to the Organization of your choice. Once the validation is complete you will be asked to share your good deed on Facebook and/or Twitter and TAGG will make a post on your behalf. If you choose to take a picture of your receipt, the receipt will be submitted to TAGG for approval.
Business Rewards & Donations
Businesses can do increased donations (over the standard 5%) at any given time. They are time specific and determined by the business. Businesses can create business rewards to thank users for continuing to come to their business and using TAGG. It’s up to the business’s discretion the dollar amount required before a reward is given, what the reward is, any limitations and expiration.
TAGG will reward users when certain milestones are reached, by making an additional donation to the user’s Organization of choice.
