HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your personal information is primarily used for the creation of a Emrals user account profile. We also use your personal information to enhance your user experience, maintain your user profile, understand how our Service is used, and protect the security of Emrals.

WHEN DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will never sell, rent, or trade any information that you provide us or share any of your information with any third parties, except as provided below.
We may disclose personal information in response to service of legal process, such as a court order, summons, subpoenas, or as permitted or required by law when we reasonably believe it is necessary or appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms of Service.
We may disclose potentially personally-identifying information to employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that: (i) need to know your personal information in order to provide services available on Emrals; and (ii) have agreed not to disclose your information to others. Some of these employees, contractors, or affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. By using Emrals, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Customers using certain browsers have the ability to activate a “Do Not Track” signal. Users are not tracked over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore Emrals does not currently respond to the “Do Not Track” signal.

INTERNATIONAL USERS & VISITORS
26 W 61st Street #402
New York, NY, 10023
EFFECTIVE DATE: March 15, 2015
Emrals is an online platform for connecting users. We let you post photos of physical areas that require cleanup and also attach a value of Emrals digital currency to the cleanup task. When a user cleans the area up and submits their own photo of the cleaned area, the Emrals digital currency transfer from one user to the other. Sometimes, a third party will be required to confirm the cleanup. If so, that party will also receive some portion of the allotted Emrals digital currency.
Everything below this section constitutes a legally binding contract and we encourage you to read it. These are the main points, in plain English:
ACCEPTANCE OF AGREEMENT
We reserve the right to revise and amend this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. Any changes to this Agreement will be posted on http://www.emrals.com/ or in the legal section of our mobile application. If you are a registered user of Emrals, we will attempt to notify you of material modifications to this Agreement when you log onto Emrals. However, you should periodically check this Agreement for any modifications. If you do not agree to any modifications to this Agreement, your sole remedy is not to use Emrals.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RISKS (INCLUDING DIGITAL CURRENCY RISKS)
Emrals provides an online platform: (i) for a user to upload a picture of an area requiring cleanup, and to attach an Emrals digital currency value for completing the cleanup project; (ii) for a user to upload a picture of a completed cleanup project; and (iii) for users to transfer Emrals digital currency upon the completion of a cleanup project to others.
Use of Emrals carries with it risk. Cleanup tasks, involving cleaning garbage and other items may result in serious injury. EMRALS ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INJURY RESULTING FROM A USER PERFORMING A CLEANUP TASK. EMRALS USERS SHOULD USE CAUTION AND WEAR PROPER PROTECTION WHENEVER PERFORMING A CLEANUP TASK. EMRALS FURTHER REMINDS ITS USERS TO DECLINE AN AREA IF DOING SO WOULD BE DANGEROUS.
Emrals digital currency is a cryptocurrency and its use also carries significant risks not generally shared by official currencies backed by central governments. Unlike the dollar, pound, euro, yen, and other currencies, cryptocurrencies are built using open source technologies that are backed only by technology and trust. There is no central bank that can take corrective measures to protect the value of cryptocurrencies in a time of crisis. The value of cryptocurrencies may collapse because of unexpected changes imposed by developers of the open source software, a government regulation or prohibition, or the creation of superior or competing alternative currencies. The value of cryptocurrencies might also collapse because of technical problems, security issues, as well as other risks not specified in this Agreement. It is possible that Emrals digital currency will have no value.
By using Emrals, you affirm that you will assume all financial risks and other hazards. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT HOLD US RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSSES INCURRED AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF EMRALS DIGITAL CURRENCY.
In order to use Emrals, you must be over the age of 18 and must create a user account by providing your first and last name, email address and creating a username and password. By creating a user account, you represent and warrant that:
You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your account and are obligated to take full responsibility for your own use of Emrals and of any third party use of your account information. We are not responsible, and will not be liable for, any losses, damages, or causes of action arising from your failure to protect and safeguard your account or password. Moreover, you cannot transfer your Emrals account or any rights to your Emrals username.

You acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Agreement provides you any rights or ownership in our copyrights, trademarks or trade secrets (“IP Rights”). The IP Rights are our exclusive property and this Agreement does not transfer any IP Rights to you or vest any IP Rights in you.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use Emrals so long as we permit you to use Emrals and do not terminate your account. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to (and agree not to allow any third party to):
Emrals permits users to post photos of areas requiring cleanup as well as photos the same areas after they are cleaned. However, you are solely responsible and liable for any content that you upload, post, or otherwise provide to Emrals. You agree to use Emrals in a lawful manner and agree:

All fees are transacted through PayPal and subscriptions are handled through Stripe. Other than purchasing, you may obtain Emrals digital currency by performing cleanup tasks.
We reserve the right to adjust pricing in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Agreement, any price changes to the Emrals services will take effect following an email notice to you.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION

In the event of termination of your account, the provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect.
You agree that Emrals, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate its operation -- or your use -- of the Service (or any services or portions thereof), and may remove and discard any information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials, that you, or any other user of Emrals, uploads, posts or transmits to or through Emrals (the “User Content”), for any reason. In the event you fail to comply with the Terms, your right to use Emrals will automatically terminate. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of Emrals, your access to Emrals or any removal of any User Content from Emrals.

WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF EMRALS OR YOUR DECISION TO ENTER INTO ANY DIGITAL CURRENCY TRANSACTION.
USE OF EMRALS DOES NOT CREATE A FIDUCIARY RELATIONSHIP
We are not a registered investment advisor nor a broker-dealer and do not serve as a consultant or personalized advisor. As such, we assume no fiduciary obligations to you, and you specifically disclaim and waive the formation of a fiduciary relationship with us. We encourage you to get personal advice from a professional investment advisor and to make independent investigations before deciding to: (i) purchase any digital currency; or (ii) engage in any digital currency transaction.
It is your sole responsibility to determine whether, and to what extent, any taxes apply to any transactions associated with your receipt or transfer of a digital currency, and/or to the digital currency transactions you conduct using Emrals, and to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct amounts of taxes to the appropriate tax authorities. Your transaction history is available through your Emrals account. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TAXES INCURRED ON ANY GAINS.
