Welcome to Hiiobi.com! We are offering financial benefits for paying attention to ads, and will offer other financial empowerment products as things develop.

Terms of Use

Hiiobi Terms & Conditions​ – _ – Much Love & Respect ​

 

  1. Scope & Glossary Terms 

 

​These Terms & Conditions are part of a binding legal contract (“Terms of Use”) between you (“you” or “User”) and Hiiobi Corporation (“we” or “us”) governing your use of Hiiobi services through the Hiiobi Mobile Application (“App”) and Hiiobi.com (“Website”). ​Please send any questions you have to Aidan@Hiiobi.com.

 

We wish this didn’t have to be a contract and that it could be shorter, but this is a contract and is necessary for many reasons. By clicking “Agree”, using our App or Website in any way, or doing any combination of those three actions, you are agreeing to be bound by these our Terms of Use. We do not charge any fees if you simply browse our Website, but you are required to accept our Terms of Use each time you do.

 

YOU MUST BE AN ADULT OF LEGAL AGE OF MAJORITY IN THE COUNTRY IN WHICH YOUR ACCOUNT IS REGISTERED.

 

In order to accept this Agreement, use the Services, and receive Participant Payments, you must be at least 18 years of age if you reside in the United States, or the legal age of majority in the country where you reside, or have parental consent and be at least 14 years of age (“Minimum Age“). The Services are not intended for users under the Minimum Age. If you are under the legal age of majority, your parent or legal guardian must consent to this agreement and Hiiobi Corporation’s Privacy Policy.

By clicking the “I AGREE” button yourself (or “ACCEPT”), you affirmatively represent that (a) you are at least the Minimum Age; (b) you have the consent of your parent(s) to use the Services if you are under 18 years of age; (c) you have all the applicable rights and authority to grant Hiiobi Corporation the rights granted herein; and (d) you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by our Terms of Use and the Hiiobi Corporation Privacy Policy. If you are not at least the Minimum Age, do not have parental consent, or you do not agree to our Terms of Use and the Hiiobi Corporation Privacy Policy, you may not use the Website, App or Services. If your are the parent of a child under the age of 18, you also affirm that you accept this agreement on behalf of your child, you accept all legal and financial responsibility and liability for their actions, and you consent to our practices for handling the personal information of your child as described in the Hiiobi Corporation Privacy Policy.

 

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE OUR TERMS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE WEBSITE OR APP NOW. YOUR REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE WEBSITE OR APP, OR ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, CONTENT, OR OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE APP OR WEBSITE, IS TO STOP USING THE WEBSITE OR APP AND/OR THOSE PARTICULAR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH OUR TERMS OF USE BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THE APP OR WEBSITE.

 

If you are an Advertiser, you agree to provide payments in exchange for our Verified Views and understanding levels of particular video Advertising Content provided by you, as set forth in your separate Advertising Agreement with us.

 

Great effort has been made to keep this very understandable and short where possible, but for legal reasons, a lot of this has to be very detailed to confirm things like what nation’s laws we follow and to make it very clear what we do and do not offer to Users and Advertisers. You are not permitted to use the service, App, or Website if you do not understand the terms of our Terms of Use. As with any other website or app’s Terms & Conditions or other agreement, it is important to read this document fully to avoid any misunderstanding of what we offer and promise.

 

There is a Glossary at the bottom of this page defining certain terms that we want to make especially clear, and those defined terms are capitalized any time they come up in our Terms of Use (which is why Advertisers is capitalized above, for example). If a word is capitalized in one sentence and not in the next, that just means the word isn’t being used in the exact same way in the second sentence.

 

  1. Eligibility For Payment

 

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) of the US Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United​ States.

 

To be eligible to receive Participant Payments from Hiiobi You must not be listed on OFAC’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, OFAC’s Consolidated Sanctions List, and must not otherwise be subject to any legal restrictions on your ability to receive Participant Payments from Hiiobi for the seconds you spend watching and responding to the video Advertising Content We present to You. If You are eligible to receive Participant Payments from Hiiobi You can opt to donate your Participant Payments rather than receiving them. If You are not eligible to receive Participant Payments from Hiiobi, we reserve the right to direct any Participant Payments that would have been paid to you to charitable causes instead, at our sole discretion. You assume full responsibility under our Terms & Conditions for determining whether You or Your nation is affected by a regulation that would prevent you from being legally permitted to receive Participant Payments from Hiiobi. If we become aware that a legal restriction affects you in this way (such as through an international bank’s rejection of the transaction request), Your Participant Payments will simply be routed to charitable causes, at our sole discretion.

 

  1. Third Party Sites and Information

 

The Website and App may link you to other sites on the Internet or otherwise include references to information, documents, software, materials and/or services provided by other parties. These sites may contain information or material that some people may find inappropriate or offensive. These other sites and parties are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such sites. Neither Hiiobi nor any of its affiliates will be liable for any errors in content or omissions in any third party links, nor responsible for any losses or damages of any sort incurred as a result of your participation with, use of, or reliance on the third party links, including any goods, products, or services offered by such third party links. The mere inclusion of such a link or reference is provided merely as a convenience and does not imply endorsement of, or association with, the Website or App or party by us, or any warranty of any kind, either express or implied. If Hiiobi does endorse or is associated with a business that is linked to from our website, we will clearly and conspicuously disclose the nature of our endorsement or connection to that business.

 

Neither Hiiobi nor any of its affiliates will be liable for any errors or omissions in any Advertising Content, nor responsible for any losses or damages of any sort incurred as a result of your participation with, use of, or reliance on the Advertising Content, including any goods, products, or services offered by such third party Advertising Content.

Any minor using our Website or App may do so only after they have had a parent or legal guardian read and agree to our Terms of Use, so that the parent or guardian can set boundaries as they see fit, which may or may not include setting browser restrictions to make sure the wrong type of video is not played. Doing that could lead to videos or music being unavailable, for which we take no responsibility.

 

  1. Description Of The Service 

 

Hiiobi maintains a Website and App on which a User can view and interact with videos to (without donating or paying anyone) earn Participant Payments (as provided in these Terms Of Use), bring about donations to Eligible Organizations, and learn more about charities listed on our Charity Index. In the process, Users can discover great projects and resources that make communities healthier and stronger, and these may not be well advertised elsewhere. Hiiobi also provides information on legislative action resources and opportunities locally and around the world. We will sometimes only tell a User about a particular resource when we think it will at the very least not irritate them, and at our discretion, we may present information differently or present different information based on who we are speaking with. This is why it is strongly recommended for Users to complete our Interest Index. We guarantee that we will do our best to provide resources and information that are of best fit and as interesting as possible for each User, and cannot guarantee that we will send the same information to everyone. We want to be up front about that so it isn’t a surprise if you don’t fill out the Interest Index and then receive a video or message that you don’t like as a result.

 

Our Advertisers pay for Verified Views, and are able to offer a higher payment when we can provide targeted ads that were confirmed to have been seen and understood. After watching one of our videos, a User must correctly answer one or more multiple choice questions about it, confirming they saw and understood the video. After the correct answer is provided by the User, that User may be eligible to receive a Participant Payment from us, as provided herein, or direct a Donation in the amount of the Participant Payment to be made to an Eligible Organization.

 

We are very transparent about how our accounting is done, and our books are published quarterly on Hiiobi.com. Payments from Advertisers for Verified Views are split as follows:

 

35% is saved for tax payments to prevent changing tax rates from impacting the other cash flows below – the remainder left after paying taxes is then split evenly between the four cash flows below (25% to each).

 

40% goes to the User or to our network of charities if the User cannot or doesn’t want to receive the payment.

 

15% is available to Hiiobi to cover our operating and growth expenses and to fund extra donations at our discretion.

 

10% goes to the network of charities

 

There are six bank account statements we provide when releasing our numbers. The first account simply receives and records the inbound Advertiser payments (or any other revenue earned by Hiiobi) and the splitting of those payments into four other accounts. When an Advertiser makes their upfront payment, that is moved in a 35/40/15/10 split to four bank accounts which each receive and record the payments made for Participant Payments, taxes and savings leading up to tax payments, Hiiobi expenses, and donations. Any time we are donating part of our expense budget, that payment is moved into a sixth account for receiving and recording these additional donations so that they are easy to separate from the statement showing Hiiobi expenses.

 

We ask that Users complete the Interests and Use Index (that is optional but highly recommended) and allow us to collect and store information about them, which is necessary for bringing the highest possible payment offers from our Advertisers. Our collection and use of your Personally Identifiable Information is subject to the Hiiobi Privacy Policy [Hiiobi.com/privacy-policy], the terms of which are incorporated by this reference. It is a requirement that Users answer our follow up questions correctly to confirm they understood the video they saw. Beyond this, we don’t ask anything of our Users. This is built to help communities and people.

 

We ask that Advertisers provide payment for our Service in advance, with the understanding that payments to charities and Users are not made until we have Verified Views. Custom terms may be offered for particular agreements with Advertisers, so we require that Advertisers agree to a separate Advertiser Agreement along with our Terms of Use that names and describes in detail the particular Advertiser and ad campaign (including the time frame and how many times the Advertiser has run a campaign with us before).

 

Our mission in life is to help improve quality of life around the world. We ask that Users provide honest answers to any questions we or our Advertisers ask (multiple choice or not), keeping in mind that your honest feedback and attention is what they (and we) are paying for, and offers may not come to you as often if you are not providing honest feedback when asked for it. Collaborating with us and our Advertisers fully is what allows us to bring donations to charities without running a traditional fundraising campaign, while bringing those benefits to Users at the same time.

 

You understand and agree that temporary interruptions of the services available through the Website or App may occur as normal events. You further understand and agree that we have no control over third party networks you may access in the course of the use of the Website or App, and therefore, delays and disruption of other network transmissions are completely beyond our control.

 

You understand and agree that the services available on the Website or App are provided “AS IS” and that we assume no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.

 

  1. Payment Terms 

 

Payments from Advertisers are due on the dates established on their Advertiser Agreement and Advertiser Preference Index.

 

Participant Payments due to Users are processed as soon as commercially reasonably by automated means when our resources and cyber security infrastructure allow for that to be done safely, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and in a cost effective way, if and only if a User agrees to be paid by automated means. If transaction costs are too high a portion (as determined by Us, in our sole discretion) of the overall payment amount (example: our bank suddenly has to charge fifty cents per transaction for some reason), we will work to change banks if we can get a better offer without too much of a hassle, and might require that a minimum earning threshold (say, $5 for example) be reached before a payment is sent out (to avoid wasting money on transaction costs/bank fees). When it’s within the scope of what our payment processing system can do, we will tell you over email the expected date the payment should post to your account with your financial institution or other structure for receiving payments, including crypto-currencies. If your payment preference as noted in your Interests Index is anything other than automatic electronic payments, we cannot speculate on the time that payment will take to process due to factors outside of our control (the post office, for example). If your payment is not received for any reason, we will resolve that as quickly as possible as soon as we are aware of it by requesting that either our or your financial institution investigate for potential fraud after we confirm that the financial information we have for you is correct.

 

We care deeply about account security. We will request the payment method preference of a User in their Interests Index, and may (over email) request confirmation of the payment preference before we send the payment, just in case that has changed at all. Before sending payments to any User, we will verify that they in fact control the account or system for receiving payment. There are multiple ways we can accomplish this, and we may use more than one verification method for a single User if one method is deemed insufficient for any reason at any time. Typically we will send tiny temporary payments to your bank account and have you confirm the amounts over email so that we know you own and/or have access to the account – the payments are then refunded to Hiiobi or left in your account to cover part or all of our first payment to you. We will take any other steps we deem worthwhile to verify that you own and/or have access to the account in question. We may take further steps to verify that, include but not limited to contacting the bank servicing that account to obtain verification for us, or having you tell your bank to confirm for us in writing (including over email) that you own the account in question. See the Dispute Resolution section of this contract for an overview of how we handle any disputes, including attempts to defraud or otherwise harm Hiiobi.

 

Donation payments to Eligible Organizations are processed as quickly as commercially reasonably, by automated means when our resources and cyber security infrastructure allow for that to be done safely (and in a cost effective way), only if that organization is an Eligible Organization and agrees among other things to be paid in by automated means (as noted in their individual Charity Preference Index). If the Eligible Organization has a payment preference (as noted in their individual Charity Preference Index on our records) that is anything other than an automatic electronic payment, we cannot guarantee the time that payment will take to process due to factors outside of our control (the post office, for example). If a Donation to an Eligible Organization is not received by the Eligible Organization for any reason, we will request that either our financial institution or the financial institution used by the applicable Eligible Organization investigate for potential fraud after we confirm that the financial information we have for the applicable Eligible Organization is correct.

 

If we determine that an Eligible Organization is no longer eligible to receive Donations, we reserve the right to disburse any Donation that would have been made to such Eligible Organization instead to one or more other Eligible Organizations, in our sole discretion.

 

In no event will bill a User for our services. Only an Advertiser can be billed for our services. A User may only become an Advertiser by agreeing to a separate Advertiser Agreement.

 

  1. Guarantee Limitation

 

To limit the ability of others (including competitors when and if they establish themselves as such) to negatively affect our charitable impact and potential, we do not provide a guarantee within this these Terms of Use for Users. For Advertisers, we offer our guarantee that we will, in good faith, do everything commercially reasonable to provide Verified Views in as timely a manner as we can once we have been paid for them, with the explicit condition that factors outside of our control are exactly that – outside of our control – so message and Verified View delivery time may be impacted by, for example, availability of internet connections in a given area (for avoidance of doubt: this example is not an exhaustive list of things that are outside of our control). We make an effort in good faith using our cyber security infrastructure to ensure all Users are verifiable as individuals and not bots or any sort of software, and that they are in fact viewing and understanding the ads we deliver. While we don’t provide Personally Identifiable Information to Advertisers, we can verify that our Users are all separate by showing their collective data which confirms that they are not duplicate profiles but doesn’t reveal their actual identities. Please see the Hiiobi Privacy Policy for details on how we secure our data.

  1. Right Of Hiiobi To Modify Terms of Use At Any Time 

 

Hiiobi reserves the rights to modify the terms of these Terms of Use in its entirety at any time without prior notice to you. We built these terms to avoid revisions where we can since we’d prefer to not modify them, but we will at some point have to modify them to address changes in our structure or changes in the laws surrounding what we do (for example, if a particular bank account becomes un-insurable or costly to insure because it’s too large, the system we use to make our financial activities transparent would have to be modified; a new account or accounts would be needed beyond the initial six accounts). Any modifications will be posted to the Website and App with an explanation of the change(s) we are making and reasons for the changes – we will never update these Terms of Use without making reasons for the change(s) available on our Website and App. Hiiobi.com/terms-of-use is the webpage on which we will always have the most recent version of these Terms of Use available. Your continued use of the Website or App after such modifications will constitute your acknowledgement of the modified Terms of Use and agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Terms of Use.

  1. Term And Account Termination (Users).

 

By accepting these Terms of Use you agree will remain in effect for as long as you use the Website, App, or Services. A User cannot terminate their account themselves, but can hand it over (“Assign”) to our network of charities at any time by requesting to do so at any time – that request must come from the email address we have on file for the given User and must be sent to Aidan@Hiiobi.com. A User who has handed their account over to our network of charities can still use the account to generate cash flow for charities, but can not receive funds from it. If we terminate your account for violations of these Terms of Use (including but not limited to attempting to defraud Hiiobi or attempting to damage the reputation of Hiiobi), we can decide whether your account is being entirely eliminated or whether it can still be used to generate cash flow for charities. Anyone formerly holding an account that is then entirely eliminated may not attempt to create a new account or receive payments from Hiiobi. Hiiobi can terminate an User’s account, or terminate a User’s access to the Website or App at any time for any reason.

 

 

  1. Term And Account Termination (Advertisers) 

 

Our contracts with our Advertisers are individualized and have their own account termination terms. In all cases, Hiiobi can terminate an Advertiser’s account at any time for any reason.

 

Termination of Use

 

You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Website or App with or without notice and for any reason, including, without limitation, breach of these Terms of Use.

Upon termination or suspension, regardless of the reasons therefore, your right to use the services available on the Website or App immediately ceases, and you acknowledge and agree that we may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Website or App. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claims or damages arising out of any termination or suspension or any other actions taken by us in connection therewith. Your liability for any unpaid fees shall survive any termination.

 

Any provision of these Terms of Use that should, by its nature, survive termination of these Terms of Use or a User or Advertiser account will survive its termination. Such provisions include, but are not limited to sections 1-2, 5, 7-9, 11-18, 20, 24.

  1. ​Limitation Of Spec Work & Requirements For Verifying A Spec Work Offer 

 

“Spec Work” refers to work that is done for free (with no payment required either during the course of the Spec Work being completed, or with no payment required at all) with the hope that a given client will come back to do business again. Hiiobi does not do Spec Work for anyone under any circumstances other than the very rare scenario noted in this section of these Terms of Use entitled “​Limitation Of Spec Work, Requirements For Verifying A Spec Work Offer”. If you as an Advertiser or potential Advertiser think we have offered to do Spec Work for you, you may be required to verify that this was offered by forwarding the initial Spec Work offer email (which has to have been sent from Aidan@Hiiobi.com)  to Aidan@Hiiobi.com and providing a copy of the written individual agreement that was offered to you, which has to include a section explicitly stating how many ads you are funding in the event that we deliver on our end of the Spec Work offer, when those will be paid for, and how soon you will be paying for the Spec Work. If you don’t have an email from Aidan@Hiiobi.com offering Spec Work, or if the supposed email from Aidan@Hiiobi.com turns out to have not been sent by Hiiobi, it is not a real Spec Work offer and will be treated as an attempt at fraud (to gain advertising Service from Hiiobi without payment).

Privacy Policy

HIIOBI PRIVACY POLICY
Hiiobi Corporation understands the importance of your privacy on the Internet. That is why we believe it is important to let you know how we use the information collected through our Website and App. The following is our policy regarding Internet privacy and usage. In accordance with our standard privacy policy, the security of your personal information is solely protected by Hiiobi Corporation. Only authorized staff members have access to specific areas of consumer information.
A. Collection and Use of Personal Information
You can visit our Website and App without revealing any personal information about yourself or telling us who you are. We do not collect personal information, such as your name, address, phone number or email address while you browse. We do, however, gather information in aggregate on how this site is used, such as the number of visitors to the site, length of each visit and which pages are most commonly used to enter and exit the site.
However, we may collect and store any personal information you enter on our website or provide to us in some other manner such as if you choose to receive Participant Payments from us. This includes Personally Identifiable Information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We use a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Additionally, we provide areas on our Website and App where you can upload Advertising Content about yourself and your organization. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Use. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting.
Although our website is a general audience site, we restrict the use of our service to individuals age 18 and above. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 14.
Hiiobi Corporation does not sell, rent, loan, trade or lease any personal information collected at our site.
B. With whom we share your information
We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. We may share personal information with:
• Service providers: We may share your personal information, which may include your name and contact information (including email address) with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulfilling orders or payments, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting our website functionality, and supporting features offered through our website. We may also share your name, contact information and credit card information with our authorized service providers who process credit card payments. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
• Advertisers: To generate as much cash flow as possible for our Users and our network of charities, we allow our Advertisers to get their messages in front of specific types of Users with specific expressed interests. We will only share Personally Identifiable Information with an Advertiser if you have told us you want to learn more about a particular topic and wish to receive information from our Advertisers about it (to provide the information through a partner, we’d obviously have to give your email address to a partner(s) in that scenario).
For example, an Advertiser can ask that we show their music video to rap fans, but an Advertiser cannot obtain a list of rap fans or any kind of a “profile” on a personally identifiable individual from us. Advertisers can only target categories of viewers, which allows them to get their messages in front of people who are likely interested in them.
• Other Situations. We also may disclose your information, including personal information:
o In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
o When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements or policies.
o In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
We may share non-personal information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our website and on websites of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.

Other information is collected to bring value to Advertisers, our network of charities, and to Users like you, and that is necessary to bring the optimal cash flows we want to bring to our stakeholders, including you.
