This Agreement was last updated on August 10th, 2015 and it is effective between you and Whurk as of the date you accept this Agreement.
Whurk provides a web-based tool for activating and managing on-campus brand promotion campaigns (each, a “Campaign”).

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Whurk hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access and use the Services and Whurk Content solely to activate and manage Campaigns.

Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise.
By accessing or using the Services, you agree to not (a) request or instruct members of our WhurkForce to engage in activities that could create liability, violate any local, state, national or international law, or result in any harm or injury to Whurk, our WhurkForce or any third party; (b) contact individual members of our WhurkForce, unless authorized to do so by Whurk; (c) use or attempt to use another user's account without authorization from such user and Whurk; (d) attempt to circumvent any content filtering techniques Whurk employs, or attempt to access any features or areas of the Services that you are not authorized to access; (e) engage in any harassing, intimidating, predatory or stalking conduct; (f) develop any third-party applications that interact with the Services without our prior written consent; and (g) use the Services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose or engage in, encourage or promote any activity that violates the terms of this Agreement.
All fees will be displayed in U.S. dollars. Except as otherwise specified by Whurk, all fees are non-refundable.
You will provide Whurk with valid and updated credit card information in order to process your order. By providing credit card information to us, you authorize Whurk (or a third party payment processor) to (a) charge such credit card for the purchase amount of your order (including taxes, if applicable) and (b) store your payment information. In the event that the credit card information you provide cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, we may suspend or cancel your order immediately.

Confidential Information will not include any information that is in the public domain (other than by breach of this Agreement), is obtained from a third party without any obligation to maintain its confidentiality or is independently developed by the receiving party. Further, this section will not apply to any use or disclosure of Confidential Information that is required by applicable law, legal process or governmental authority or that is made with the express consent of the disclosing party.

No waiver of any term in this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Whurk's failure or delay to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
