Any and all fraudulent activities on an Account or with Services.
Each Member of the Services, including you, is responsible for the content that the Member transmits, and the consequences of its use or submission.
You are permitted to open only one (1) Account. Only one Account is allowed per Member. Multiple accounts held by the same individual are subject to immediate closure and we reserve the right to seize any funds or cryptocurrencies (including ASK coins) gained as a result of holding multiple Accounts. Furthermore, you shall not permit another person to access the Services via your Account without the express authorization of Permission.
Permission users may have the opportunity to earn ASK coins or other cryptocurrency “rewards” by using the Permission Platform to provide data, including data provided directly by you, data collected based on your use of Permission, or data provided by an external source that you have opted in to the Permission Platform. You may earn from connecting accounts, allowing us and/or our business partners to collect data, answering survey questions, and other activities, all as specified through the Platform, and all on an anonymous basis, i.e., not identifying you personally to third parties. You get to be the “agent” for your data, and to be rewarded for this data, according to the Terms stated herein. Rewards earned through qualifying actions taken by a user will be stored in the user’s account wallet and recorded against the user’s account.
The amount of rewards you earn is determined by a dynamic algorithm based on variables of both user and merchant behavior. Permission may in its sole discretion alter this algorithm, which may result in a decrease in the amount of rewards in your account.
Permission has the sole discretion to determine when to distribute your rewards to your account. Distribution of rewards to your account may be subject to identification requirements.
Rewards may be redeemed as specified through the Platform at the time a user seeks to redeem rewards, currently including for cash through PayPal and/or in exchange for gift cards, and according to any applicable terms set forth on the Platform. Without limiting the preceding sentence, we may impose requirements or conditions prerequisite to redeeming rewards, restrictions on how many rewards may be redeemed at any time or over a period of time and such other rules conditions or restrictions as we deem prudent in our sole discretion. You represent and warrant that you will comply with all such rules, conditions and restrictions.

If you are a parent or legal guardian of a Minor, you hereby agree to bind the Minor to these Terms and to fully indemnify Permission and hold it harmless if the Minor breaches any of these Terms.
