2. ABOUT JINGLING AND OPERATION OF THE SITE
Jingling is a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business at 1101 W. 34th St. #362, Austin, TX 78705. We created jinglingapp.com to be a unique “shoppers’ marketplace” where shoppers, rather than merchants, play the most important role in determining what will be offered for sale. Users who have opened Accounts with us as Shoppers can post a public request on the Site seeking to purchase particular goods or services they describe at the time, place and price specified by them. Sellers who create an account with the Service (“Merchants” or “Businesses”) may respond to Shoppers’ requests by submitting offers (“Jingles”) to provide the requested products or services. Shoppers can then choose the Merchant whose offer best meets their needs. Any sales are directly between the Shopper and the Merchant who is the seller of the Item(s) or service(s) sought. The role of Jingling is expressly limited to making the Site available and maintaining the Site. Jingling is an intermediary and not an agent for either the Shopper or the Merchant for any purpose.
4. YOUR JINGLING ACCOUNT
If you decide you want to participate on the Site, you must create an account with Jingling. We will ask you to provide us with identifying information such as your name and address, age, e-mail address, phone number and other authentication information we may need to approve a new account. If you are registering to become a Merchant, you must provide a payment method as well as the other information.
You may register and utilize only one account with Jingling as a Shopper or Merchant. (You must register for and create two separate and unique accounts to participate as both a Shopper and a Merchant on the Site.) You agree that you will not assign or transfer your Account(s) to anyone else without our written approval.

7. WE PROVIDE THE PLATFORM, YOU PROVIDE THE REST
Jingling takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for user content submitted by you or any third-party. Jingling does not warrant the existence, quality, safety or legality of items or services sought or offered for sale, or the truth or accuracy of descriptions of goods, services or any conditions of sale. We do not guarantee the ability of Shoppers to pay or Merchants to sell, or that a Merchant or Shopper will actually complete a transaction or provide payment, goods, services or refunds. We have no role in the transfer of legal ownership from Merchant to Shopper or vice versa. Shoppers need to pay careful attention to any Merchant’s terms of sale, as they will vary. Some Merchants may allow returns and give refunds, but others may not, or it may depend on what is being offered for sale and the price of the item or service. Some Merchants may not allow any returns, or allow returns for only a limited period of time or only give store credit. Jingling does not control and is not responsible for Merchants’ terms of sale.
You acknowledge that Jingling does not as a matter of its ordinary practice pre-screen any User Content submitted by you or other users of the Site but that Jingling (and any of its authorized designees) have the right to and may pre-screen or review after initial submission any of the User Content for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, for compliance with these Terms or applicable laws, or if otherwise desired or necessary, as determined by Jingling in its sole discretion. Jingling shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse, remove, edit, or disable any of your User Content (or any other Site users' User Content) that violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable, as determined by Jingling in its sole discretion, as well as terminate your and any Site user's continued access to or other use of the Site (including, without limitation, access to and/or use of any of the Services, features or functionality available on or through the Site). Jingling does not control or endorse any User Content, and any User Content submitted to the Site does not reflect the opinions, views or policies of Jingling or any of its affiliates. Jingling disclaims any and all liability in connection with any and all User Content, and you agree to waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against Jingling or any of its affiliates with respect to such User Content.
Jingling reserves the right to display advertisements in connection with your User Content and to use your User Content to advertise and promote your User Content or the Site and Service (in whole or in part) or any of Jingling’s products or services. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right or interest in any of the revenue generated from such advertisements. These provisions shall remain in full force and effect in perpetuity notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Site or Service.
8. HOW MUCH DOES USING OUR SERVICE COST?
Use of our Service is free for Shoppers who have registered with us and have approved Accounts, and, of course, for those who are browsing the Site. Every Merchant who registers and is approved for an account will be charged a monthly subscription fee and there may be additional charges per offer and transaction. Payments by Merchants to Jingling will be made through one or more secure third-party payment processors. The credit card information each Merchant provides in their personal or Merchant profile at sign-up is not stored by Jingling, but is stored and used by our third-party credit card processors in order for them to process payments. Fees charged by Jingling may change from time to time, but Jingling will post any proposed fee changes on the Site ten (10) days in advance of implementation. No advance notice is required for temporary promotions. More information about Merchant fees and payment provisions can be found on our [Merchant fee and payment page] on jinglingapp.com.
If you are a Merchant, you agree to pay all applicable fees (including, without limitation, periodic fees for subscription accounts) and related taxes associated with our Service by the payment due date, and to reimburse us for all collection costs and late fees for any overdue amounts. Jingling, at its sole discretion, may pause or terminate user's continued access to or other use of the Site (including, without limitation, access to and/or use of any of the Services, features or functionality available on or through the Site) due to late or non-payment. Late payments are subject to late fees, interest charges on past due amounts and suspension of the use of our Service. If your payment method fails, or your Account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection methods, including but not limited to, charging other methods of payment we have on file for you, and hiring collection agencies and legal counsel, whose fees may also be added to your overdue amounts. We may also report information about your Account to credit bureaus. Your obligation to pay fees continues through the end of the subscription period during which you cancel your subscription. All applicable taxes are calculated based on the billing information you provide us at the time of registration or later. Jingling takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any loss of income, poor customer response or negative outcome due to inability of customers to access Merchants’ business services due to late or non-payment.
We currently provide our mobile services for free to shoppers and there are service-associated fees charged to merchants, but please be aware that your carrier's normal rates and fees, such as text messaging and data charges, will still apply. You provide consent and all rights necessary to enable users to sync (including through an application) their devices with any information that is visible to them on Jingling.
9. RATINGS, REVIEWS AND OTHER INTERACTIVE AREAS
Jingling has included an online feedback system ("Jingling Ratings and Reviews”) as part of jinglingapp.com designed to help our users decide whether to enter into transactions with other users. We urge both Shoppers and Merchants to promptly provide feedback on the Site about their transactions so we can develop a robust and current database of ratings and reviews to help other users. We also encourage Shoppers to review other online rating resources such as the BBB, Yelp and Google to learn as much as possible about the reputation of responding Merchants before they enter into a transaction. Shoppers and Merchants may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification before money and goods/services exchange hands.
You are solely responsible for your use of the Service’s Ratings and Reviews and you agree to use it at your own risk. Jingling takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third-party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is Jingling liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter. As a provider of interactive services, Jingling is not liable for any statements, representations or content provided by its users in any public forum, personal home page or other Interactive Area. Although Jingling has no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the content posted to or distributed through any Interactive Area, Jingling reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen, translate or edit without notice any content posted or stored on this Site at any time and for any reason, or to have such actions performed by third parties on its behalf, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies of and replacing any content you post or store on this Site at your sole cost and expense.
Please be aware that by providing content to the Site, including any reviews, comments, feedback, complaints, questions, photographs or videos, suggestions, ideas or the like contained in User Content, you grant Jingling and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to (a) use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, create derivative works from and publicly display and perform such User Content throughout the world in any media, now known or hereafter devised, for any purpose; and (b) use the name that you submit in connection with such User Content. You acknowledge that Jingling may choose to provide attribution of your comments or reviews at our discretion. You further grant Jingling the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or Jingling’s rights in the User Content by a breach of this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that User Content is non-confidential and non-proprietary.
You agree not to intentionally or knowingly post content about another user or a user’s goods and services that contains personal or contact information or that is materially false, inaccurate or misleading, or constitutes defamation. You also agree not to engage in harassment, threats, stalking, spamming or tampering with another user’s posted content.

12. THE JINGLING PARTNER PROGRAM
Jingling’s service allows Merchants to reply to Shoppers’ requests with customized Jingles in real time or by using Pre-set Jingle™, a feature that responds to shopper requests with pre-set specials, deals or offers. We recognize that many business owners and managers may be too busy to respond to Jingling shoppers, so Jingling is providing a free online training program, the Jingling Partner Program, for people interested in mastering the Jingling application and Site. Individuals who complete the training course may be referred to as “Jingling Partners.” Jingling expects Jingling Partners will be employees of registered merchants or will work as independent contractors with one or more merchants in responding to shoppers’ requests on the Site. Jingling does not control, employ or compensate the Jingling Partners. Jingling Partners negotiate and enter into agreements with merchants on their own, and Jingling does not guarantee or manage these relationships. While Jingling believes Jingling Partners to be reasonably qualified, Jingling makes no warranty or representation as to the same, accepts no responsibility or liability of any kind for such Jingling Partners’ work and expressly acknowledges that the Merchant’s use and reliance on such expertise are at the Merchant’s own risk.
