Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein have the following meaning:
- "End User", "you" or "your" means the user of this Site.
- "Tippr" "we" or "our" means Tippr LLC.
- "Site" means this Web site.
- "Web" means the World Wide Web of the Internet.
The right to use this Site is personal to End-User and is not transferable to any other person or entity. End User shall be responsible for protecting the confidentiality of End User's password(s), if any. End User acknowledges that, although the Internet is often a secure environment, sometimes there are interruptions in service or events that are beyond the control of Tippr, and Tippr shall not be responsible for any data lost while transmitting information on the Internet. While it is Tippr's objective to make the Site accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, the Site may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance. You understand and acknowledge that due to circumstances both within and outside of the control of Tippr, access to the Site may be interrupted, suspended or terminated from time to time.
Tippr shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature on the Site, including, but not limited to, content, the products and services offered on the Site (collectively, the foregoing shall hereinafter be referred to as the "Services"), hours of availability and equipment needed for access or use, without notice. Further, Tippr may discontinue disseminating any portion of information or category of information, may change or eliminate any transmission method and may change transmission speeds or other signal characteristics.
We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Site or the Services or any portion of the Services.
We also reserve the right (but do not assume the obligation), in our sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post, or remove any material that you post or submit for posting, and to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to the Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability.

12. Term and Termination.
13. Linking to Site.
You are permitted to link to the home page of our Web site at Tippr.com and, unless we indicate otherwise, to deep link to internal pages of our Web site on which the Services are provided. You are permitted to utilize any widgets, code generation, short linking service or other linking tools provided on the Service for the purpose of sharing content as part of the Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, framing of the Services as part of any other Web site or service, or any other manner of incorporating all or any portion of our Services or the Services Content (as defined below) as part of another Web site or service, is not permitted without our prior written consent.
14. Third Party Content.
Tippr, similar to an Internet Service Provider, is a distributor (and not a publisher) of content supplied by third parties and End Users. Accordingly, Tippr has no more editorial control over such content than does a public library, bookstore or newsstand. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, or any other end users are those of the respective author(s) or distributors) and not of Tippr. Neither Tippr nor any third-party provider of information guarantees the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any content, nor its merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose. (Refer to Section 17 above for the complete provisions governing limitation of liabilities and disclaimers of warranty.)
In many instances, the content available through this Site represents the opinions and judgments of the respective information provider, end user, or other user not under contract with Tippr. Tippr neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made on Tippr by anyone other than authorized Tippr employee spokespersons while acting in official capacities. Under no circumstances will Tippr, its shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, or representatives be liable for any loss or damage caused by an end user's reliance on information obtained through Tippr. It is the responsibility of End User to evaluate the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice, etc., or other content available through Tippr.
Tippr contains links to third party Web sites maintained by other content providers. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by Tippr of the contents on such third-party sites and Tippr hereby expressly disclaims any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party Web sites. If End User decides to access linked third-party Web sites, End User does so at its own risk. Unless you have executed a written agreement with Tippr expressly permitting you to do so, you may not provide a hyperlink to the Site from any other website. Tippr reserves the right to revoke its consent to any link at any time in its sole discretion.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
15. Mobile Services.
The Services may include certain services and features that are available via your mobile phone or other mobile device, including the ability to receive Tippr messages (hereinafter, the "Mobile Services"). We may charge for Mobile Services. In addition, your carrier's normal messaging, data, and other rates and fees will apply. You should check with your carrier to find out what plans are available and how much they cost. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. Therefore, you should check with your carrier to find out if the Mobile Services are available for your mobile devices, and what restrictions, if any, may be applicable to your use of such Mobile Services. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you (including, without limitation, by way of third-party messaging services) regarding Tippr and other entities by SMS, MMS, text messages, or other electronic means to your mobile device, and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your Tippr account information to ensure that your Tippr-related messages are not sent to the person who acquires your old number.
16. Sharing Services.
Our Services may include services and features whereby users can share with others, or post to their profiles or other portions of the Services, videos, articles, and other Services Content, and links to information, content, materials, and software applications (collectively, "Content") on third-party sites and services (such features, "Sharing Services"). You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Sharing Services and all links, and Content that you share through the Sharing Services are subject to, and must comply fully with, this Agreement.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE REMEDIES FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE AND THAT, WITHOUT THESE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS, YOU WOULD HAVE PAID A HIGHER FEE FOR THE USE OF THE SITE.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms or to your use of the Services must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be barred forever.
For Florida residents purchasing Vouchers where the Merchant (as defined below) is a healthcare provider: The patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed for payment for any service, examination or treatment that is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free, discounted fee or reduced fee service, examination or treatment.

19. Notice and Assignment

Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by email).

This Agreement may not be assigned by you without the prior written approval of Tippr but may be assigned without your consent by Tippr to (i) a parent or subsidiary, (ii) an acquirer of assets, or (iii) a successor by merger. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void.
We may provide you with means to provide feedback, suggestions, and ideas, if you choose, about the Site, our products and Services ("Feedback"). You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, use the Feedback you provide to us in any way, including in future modifications to the Services.

21. Liquidated Damages
You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify for certain violations of these Terms, if it becomes necessary for Tippr to pursue legal action to enforce these Terms, you will be liable to pay Tippr the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of Tippr's damages for the specified breaches of these Terms:
a. If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of these Terms without Tippr's express written permission, you agree to pay Tippr three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct.
b. If you violate Section 10, without Tippr's express written permission, you agree to pay Tippr one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each day on which you engage in conduct that violates the terms of Section 10.
c. If you send unsolicited email advertisements to Tippr End Users or through Tippr's computer systems, you agree to pay Tippr twenty five dollars ($25) for each such email.
Otherwise, you agree to pay Tippr's actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, Tippr retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in these Terms, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of this Agreement or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in these Terms, or any combination thereof.
II. TERMS OF SALE
By placing an order for a voucher (the "Voucher") for a Merchant's good or service, you make an offer to Tippr to purchase the Voucher(s) you have selected on the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement and the Voucher. For example, the final sale of a Voucher may be conditioned on a certain number of end users of the Sites offer to purchase the Voucher. The sale of the Voucher will not be final until such conditions (if any) are satisfied.
You are required to create an account, including the establishment of a password, in order to purchase a Voucher. An account is required to use the Site. You are responsible for all activity occurring when the Site is accessed through your account and you shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with your use of the Site. You shall: (i) notify Tippr immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; and (ii) keep all of your profile information current. You will be responsible and liable for all communications and actions that take place through the use of your account, including without limitation, any actions that occur without your authorization. Accordingly, it is your responsibility to take appropriate actions immediately if any password has been stolen, leaked, compromised or otherwise used without proper consent.
The Voucher you purchase is redeemable for goods or services by the seller of such goods and services, hereinafter defined as "Merchant." The Merchant, not Tippr, is the seller of the goods and services that is the subject of the Voucher and the Merchant is solely responsible for redeeming any Voucher you purchase. For clarity, Tippr sells the Voucher that can be redeemed in connection with your purchase of the goods or services from Merchant.
Terms and Conditions for Restaurant-Specific Vouchers
For this section, Restaurant shall be defined as a Merchant who offers food and beverage for sale in its regular business operations, and is making such food and beverages available to purchasers of certain Vouchers (each a "Restaurant-Specific Voucher").
- Redemption frequency is determined by restaurants, and shall be contained in the Restaurant-Specific Voucher offer on Tippr.
- Use of Restaurant-Specific Vouchers for alcoholic beverages is at the sole discretion of the restaurant subject to applicable law. Restaurant-Specific Vouchers may have statutory limitations on the amount of the Voucher value that can be redeemed for alcoholic beverages. Compliance with state statutes or codes is the responsibility of the Restaurant, and the Restaurant agrees to comply with all state laws pertaining to the same. Our sole role in the transaction is as a marketing agent for the Voucher, and the applicability and compliance with any relevant statute or code is solely determined and consummated by the Restaurant, and we have no role in such determination or action taken on the part of the Restaurant.
- It is at the discretion of the Restaurant to determine whether Tippr's Restaurant-Specific Voucher can be combined with any other restaurant certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions.
- Restaurant-Specific Vouchers cannot be used for taxes, tips or prior balances, unless permitted by the Restaurant and is permitted by applicable law.
- Restaurant-Specific Vouchers are valid for dine in only unless otherwise stated on the Restaurant-Specific Voucher.
- The issuing of restaurant credit is at the sole discretion of the restaurant unless otherwise required by law.
- Neither Tippr, nor the Restaurant is responsible for lost or stolen Restaurant-Specific Voucher.
- Reproduction, sale or trade of a Restaurant-Specific Voucher is prohibited unless done so in compliance with the law.
- Any attempted redemption of a Restaurant-Specific Voucher not consistent with this Agreement will render the Restaurant-Specific Voucher void.
- The Restaurant-Specific Voucher expires on the date specified on the Restaurant-Specific Voucher, except that the Merchant may continue to redeem the unused cash value you paid for the Restaurant-Specific Voucher (which is usually less than the original face value of the Tippr) to the extent required by applicable law.
- If you redeem the Restaurant-Specific Voucher for less than its face value, you will not be entitled to a credit, cash or new Restaurant-Specific Voucher equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed, unless otherwise required by law. You will only be entitled to a continuing redemption value as noted above if the amount that you paid for the Restaurant-Specific Voucher exceeds the amount you redeemed. For example, if you paid $20 for Restaurant-Specific Voucher which entitles you to purchase $50 of product by February 1, 2010 and you make a purchase for $40 on January 30, 2010, you will not be entitled to a credit or cash equal to the difference between the $50 face value and the amount you redeemed. You will not have any redemption value either because the amount you redeemed is more than what you paid for the Restaurant-Specific Voucher.
Terms and Conditions for Non-Restaurant-Specific Vouchers
- Vouchers purchased on the Site may be applied only to merchandise sold by Merchant, and may not be applied to shipping or handling charges.
- Limit one (1) certificate per redemption. Only one certificate can be used per order unless otherwise specified by Merchant.
- The issuing of credit is at the sole discretion of the Merchant unless otherwise required by law.
- Neither Tippr nor the Merchant is responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers.
- Vouchers cannot be combined with any other gift certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by Merchant.
- Reproduction, sale or trade of a Voucher is prohibited unless done so in compliance with the law.
- Any attempted redemption not consistent with this Agreement will render the Voucher null and void.
- The Voucher (including, but not limited to, any discounts) expires on the date specified on the Voucher, except that the Merchant may continue to redeem the unused cash amount you paid for the Voucher (which is usually less than the original face value of the Voucher) to the extent required by applicable law.
- If you redeem the Voucher for less than its face value, you will not be entitled to a credit, cash or a new Voucher equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed, unless otherwise required by law. You will only be entitled to a continuing redemption value as noted above if the amount that you paid for the Voucher exceeds the amount you redeemed. For example, if you paid $20 for a Voucher which entitles you to purchase $50 of product by February 1, 2010 and you make a purchase for $40 on January 30, 2010, you will not be entitled to a credit or cash equal to the difference between the $50 face value and the amount you redeemed. You will not have any redemption value either because the amount you redeemed is more than what you paid for the Voucher.
- Redemption of Vouchers for alcoholic beverages may be limited by state and federal law, compliance with which is the responsibility of the Merchant. By redeeming any Voucher for alcoholic beverages, you swear and affirm that you are over the age of 21, and you acknowledge that the person receiving a shipment of alcoholic beverages as a result of such redemption is over the age of 21. Further, you agree that any alcohol purchased upon redemption of a Voucher is intended for personal consumption and not for resale. If you do not agree with these conditions you may not purchase Vouchers for alcoholic beverages.
Additional Terms and Conditions for All Tippr Vouchers
All Vouchers printed from the Site or any website associated with Tippr are promotional vouchers that are offered to you below their face value and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the participating Restaurant or Merchant. The Merchant is the seller of the goods or services which you are purchasing.
The holder and issuer of a Restaurant-Specific Voucher is the Restaurant. The holder and issuer of all other Vouchers is the Merchant. As a holder and issuer of the Voucher, the Restaurant or Merchant shall be fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of a customer, caused in whole or in part by the Restaurant or the Merchant, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Vouchers. All Vouchers (including Restaurant-Specific Vouchers) are redeemable in their entirety only and may not be redeemed incrementally.
According to the laws of the respective states in which you purchased your Voucher, and in which you wish to redeem your Voucher at the Merchant, the Merchant is responsible for allowing you to redeem your Voucher for the cash value based on the money you actually paid for your Voucher (i.e. if you paid $20 for a Voucher which gives you $50 of value to the Merchant, the cash value that you paid is $20, not $50), for a period of time that may extend beyond the expiration date on the Voucher. While the expiration date on the Voucher dictates the last date that you can use your Voucher at Merchant for the promotional offer which is stated on the Voucher, state laws (which vary state-by-state, and which are generally made available by each State on the web) may provide that the Merchant is responsible for honoring the cash value that you paid for your Voucher for a period of time beyond the expiration date stated on the Voucher. If applicable, this is a statutory provision which applies to the Merchant, and it is the sole responsibility of the Merchant (and in no way the responsibility of Tippr, as Tippr is not the Merchant, has no obligations of the Merchant, and is merely selling the promotional voucher on behalf of the Merchant) to comply with such applicable laws and statutes which may govern the Merchant.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, If you have gone to the Merchant and the Merchant has refused to redeem the cash value of your expired Voucher, and if applicable law entitles you to such redemption, then please contact Tippr, explain your situation in writing, and Tippr will refund the purchase price of the Voucher in either U.S. Dollars or credit for purchases of future Vouchers from Tippr.
Tippr and its Merchants reserve all rights and remedies against you to the extent you violate these Terms of Sale, including without limitation counterfeiting Vouchers or otherwise engaging in fraudulent conduct.
