PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND INCLUDES WAIVER OF A TRIAL BY JURY IN A COURT AND OF THE ABILITY TO BRING ANY CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS.
Overview; Notice of Claim and Required Informal Dispute Resolution Process
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination, or breach thereof, or your use of the Services, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution, through first contacting Customer Support and then through the Informal Dispute Resolution Process described below. If these informal efforts do not resolve the concern or issue, as explained in more detail below, we each agree to resolve any dispute between us through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
If you have any concerns about, or experience any issue with, the Services, most user concerns or issues can be resolved by contacting our Customer Support team at email@example.com. Before initiating the Informal Dispute Resolution Process (as described below) or any arbitration or court proceeding pursuant to this Section, you must first contact our Customer Support team to address your concerns or issues. Most disputes can be resolved that way.
If you have any concern or dispute that Customer Support cannot resolve, you agree to then try to resolve the dispute informally (the “Informal Dispute Resolution Process”) and in good faith by contacting us and providing a written notice of claim (the “Notice of Claim”) to the address provided below for Service of Process or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Notice of Claim must provide us with an individualized and detailed description of the nature and factual basis of your individual, personal claim(s), and the relief you seek, including the specific amount of any monetary relief you seek and the basis for your calculation of that relief. Your Notice of Claim may only include your individual personal claim(s) and may not be combined with a Notice of Claim for other individuals. After submitting your Notice of Claim, you then agree to meet and confer by email, telephonically, or by videoconference (such as Zoom), in good faith regarding your individual claim before taking any further action.
If any dispute related to your Notice of Claim cannot be resolved through the Informal Dispute Resolution Process within sixty (60) days of our receipt of the Notice of Claim, this Section explains how you and we agree to resolve it. As explained in more detail below, we each agree to resolve any dispute between us through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. You understand and agree that you and we are giving up the right to sue in court and the right to have a trial before a judge or jury.
This Section applies to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If any competent authority deems any portion of this Section illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect.
If any competent authority determines that applicable law precludes the arbitration of any claim, cause of action, or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action, or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action, or requested remedy, will be severed from this Agreement to Arbitrate (as described below), and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. If a claim, cause of action, or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action, or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action, and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
Agreement to Arbitrate; Exceptions
If we cannot resolve our dispute through customer support, YOU AND WE AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN US IN INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION, INCLUDING CLAIMS CONCERNING ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US, YOUR DECISION TO DOWNLOAD CANDLESTICK, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, ANY USER CONTENT OR YOUR ACCOUNT. This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly, and applies to all legal claims under any legal theory (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory), and applies to any disputes or claims that you assert or that arise even after you stop using the Services or delete your account for the App, stop using the App, or delete the App application from your mobile device. This Agreement to Arbitrate also applies to any claims that are currently the subject of a purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. You and we agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of the terms or formation of this contract, including whether any dispute between us is subject to this Agreement to Arbitrate (i.e., the arbitrator will decide the arbitrability of any dispute) and whether all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.
An arbitration is a proceeding before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and provides more limited discovery. It follows different rules than court proceedings, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND WE ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND THE RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
This Section, however, does not apply to the following types of claims or disputes, which you or we may bring in court in accordance with Section 16 above:
(1) claims of infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, including such claims seeking injunctive relief; and
(2) claims for preliminary injunctive relief for violations of Sections 3 and 8 herein.
This Section does not prevent you from bringing your dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agencies that can, if the law allows, seek relief from us for you. Also, any of us can bring a claim in small claims court either in Santa Clara County, California or the county where you live, or some other place we both agree on, if such claim meets all the requirements to be brought in that court.
The Federal Arbitration Act applies to this Section. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (including Rule 1(g) of those Rules that provides for arbitration through the submission of documents only/desk arbitration where no disclosed claims or counterclaims exceed $25,000), as modified by these Terms. The Rules are available at https://adr.org/. The arbitrator will be bound by these Terms.
To start an arbitration proceeding, use the form on AAA’s website (https://adr.org/) or call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Any arbitration under this section that is required to take place in person will take place pursuant to the Rules, which provide that face-to-face proceedings be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances.
If your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your filing fee promptly upon being notified of the filing, or pay it for you if you are unable to pay it and we receive a written request from you. Also, if your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your share of the arbitration costs, including your share of arbitrator fees, at the conclusion of the proceeding, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous or your costs are unreasonable as determined by the arbitrator. If you seek more than US$25,000, the arbitration costs, including arbitrator compensation, will be split between you and us according to the Rules. Irrespective of the amount you seek, neither party shall be entitled to have their attorneys’ fees or costs paid by the other party, provided, however, that either party may seek to recover their attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration if the arbitrator determines that the other party’s claims (or counterclaims) are frivolous or the other party’s costs are unreasonable.
For non-US Users:
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination or breach thereof, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. If they do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by any party to the other(s), any unresolved controversy or claim shall be settled by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”) (www.icdr.org) in accordance with the provisions of its International Arbitration Rules. The place of arbitration shall be in London, England. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor its representatives may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of Candlestick. The European Union also operates an online dispute resolution platform which can be found at www.ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
Class Action and Representative Action Waiver
For disputes arising between us and you, or any other user, you and we agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis. NEITHER YOU NOR WE CAN BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT COMBINE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIM INTO A SINGLE CASE, AND CANNOT PRESIDE OVER ANY CONSOLIDATED, CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, UNLESS WE BOTH AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING. NONETHELESS, IF ANY PORTION OF THIS CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WAIVER IS DEEMED UNENFORCEABLE OR INVALID, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL HAVE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE ANY AND ALL REMEDIES AUTHORIZED BY LAW.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION.
Service of Process

Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. We may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction.

Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by our duly authorized representative. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If any provision of the Terms is for any reason held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of the Terms shall be unimpaired and shall remain in full force and effect.

You may use the Candlestick Services (the “Services”) only if you are 18 years or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.
You may not use our Services if you are not allowed to receive products, including services or software, from the United States, for example if you are in a country embargoed by the United States or if you are on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals. Candlestick assumes no financial or legal responsibility for actions completed through misrepresentation of age by users or such legal guardians of users.
Participation in Rewards Programs.
Candlestick has established relationships with mobile game developers, advertisers and partners (collectively, “Partners”) to provide users with a variety of ways to earn rewards (“Rewards”) for watching advertisements (“Earning Activities”). Earning Activities are made available to users based on a variety of factors, including demographic information, physical location and participation level when viewing ads with Candlestick. Candlestick and its Partners make no guarantee regarding the amount of Rewards that may be earned or available for users to earn at any time.
Rewards are deemed successfully completed once you have fully and properly satisfied all of the requirements as specified by the Earning Activity, and that Candlestick and/or its Partners are able to verify your participation. Candlestick reserves the right to verify your identity prior to crediting or allowing redemption of any Rewards. For avoidance of doubt, Candlestick shall not be responsible for, nor obligated to grant Rewards in which (1) your account or identity is not verified, (2) participation is not validated, and/or (3) Earning Activities are not successfully completed.
Redeeming Rewards - Minimum Cash Request.
Users may only redeem accumulated Rewards by requesting a payout via the Candlestick app. No re-crediting, reversal, or refund of Rewards will be issued for any reason after such Rewards have been successfully redeemed. For avoidance of doubt, once you order and receive a Reward, you may not reverse or cancel the transaction nor return the redeemed Rewards for a refund or re-crediting of Rewards to your Account. The only way to use Rewards is to redeem them for cash in the form of US Dollars.
Requests made for cash payouts are facilitated by our third party service provider, Tilia LLC, and may take up to 48 hours to process. Such transactions are subject to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by that provider, including, without limitation, identity verification and assessment of applicable fees on a per transaction basis for payouts. By using the payout function of the Candlestick app, you agree to Tilia’s Terms of Service, Users must have at least $1 USD posted to their accounts in order to request a cash payout. The minimum amount to request a cash payout may be no less than $1 USD. If you do not accrue a $1 balance in your account, you will not receive any payments and the balance will expire one year from the last Earning Activity to the extent permissible by applicable law. If you plan to discontinue or cancel the app, we recommend waiting until you accrue at least a $1 balance and then discontinue usage after you receive the payout for that amount. Candlestick reserves the right to modify the minimum thresholds for redeeming rewards.
You are responsible for any and all tax liability arising from or associated with your use of the Services, including liability arising from your accrual or redemption of cash or other items. Candlestick will require you to provide necessary tax information about yourself prior to receiving payment when requesting payment greater than $300 at one time or cumulatively during a calendar year. Candlestick will file a 1099 tax form for any user who earns $600 or greater in one calendar year from Candlestick.
