Acceptance of Agreement
By joining the Web Hits 2 Go Traffic Exchange system, you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions in this document, and agree to provide complete and accurate information about your yourself to us.
We reserve the right to alter or amend this agreement at any time, and to place the revised agreement at this same location .
Description of Service
Basic membership is free: A Web Hits 2 Go membership is a free service provided by us to bring internet traffic to the web pages indicated by you. The only requirements for this service are:
A verifiable email is provided - we will send an email containing a code which we must receive back, to verify the identity of the member.
Membership is limited to 1 membership per person.
We reserve the right to reject a membership application for any reason.
We reserve the right to 'ban' a member who has, repeatedly and/or deliberately violated any of our policies.
Internet Traffic: Traffic is defined as a 'visit' or 'hit' to a web page, performed by a member of our system, using a browser of their choice. Traffic is delivered on an as-available basis. No guarantee is made as to the rate at which traffic can be delivered to a site. Each visit incurs a cost of 1 credit to the member.
Credits: A credit enables a member to receive a visit to one of their listed sites. Credits may be purchased or earned. Credits are earned through auto surfing, manual surfing, and referral of other members. Credits have no cash redemption value, and can only be used through the Web Hits 2 Go site. Unused credits do not accrue interest.
Referral of other members: We provide a link that a member can use to bring other people into our system. If a visitor joins our system after visiting through a member link, the member providing the link will be credited with a referral. This will result in the referrer receiving some percentage of credits earned by the newly referred member. Referral credits are provided for the duration of the membership of the referrer.
Inter-member email: Members are permitted to send, through a form on our site, 1 text-based email per week to members they have referred if the referred member allows the receipt of such emails. At no time will the referred member's email be exposed to the referrer. The referrer may optionally disclose their email to the recipient. Once a message has been sent, any member receiving the email can use the same form to respond to the originator. This is a specialized service, designed to facilitate inter-member communications.
Enhancing a membership: A membership can be enhanced on a month-to-month basis for a fee. The fee is not prorated, and is not refundable. Enhancements come in the form of package deals, providing mechanisms to earn more credits per hour than an un-enhanced membership. For a discussion of membership enhancements, their costs and benefits,
Conditions of Use
By using this service, you agree that you will not attempt to undermine the integrity, appearance, or reputation of our site.
Termination of Agreement
Either party may terminate this agreement, with or without cause. For you to terminate the agreement, simply log in and select "close account" in the member's area. If we choose to terminate the agreement, you will be notified by email to your verified address, along with the reason for termination.
In the event of account termination, unused credits are discarded, and referral credits are removed. Members who you referred will be given to your 'upline' referrer, or moved to the 'free agent' pool, where other members can buy them into their downline. Membership fees are not refundable, but if you have opted for the 'automatic monthly payment', it will be stopped by us as of the date of your account's termination. If you are accidentally charged a membership fee after account termination, we will refund it promptly.
Limitation of Liability and Warranty
You agree that use of the service is entirely at the user's own risk. Services are provided "as is", without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied. This includes without limitation any warranty for Information, Services, Uninterrupted access, or products provided through or in connection with our service. This also include without limitation the results obtained through our service. We disclaim any warranties concerning the availability, accuracy, or content of information, products or services. We disclaim any warranties of Merchantability or Fitness for a particular purpose.
This disclaimer applies to any damages or injury caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, deletion, delay of any kind, computer virus, theft or destruction, negligence, unauthorized access to our site, or any other cause of action. You acknowledge that we are not liable for defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of other customers or third parties, and that the risk of injury rests entirely with you.
Neither Web Hits 2 Go, nor any of its agents, affiliates, or content providers shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of use of our services, or inability to gain access to or use our services, or out of any breach of any warranty. Customer acknowledges that the provisions in this section apply to all content on the Web Hits 2 Go web site.
Information presented by Web Hits 2 Go, regardless of the mode of communication (web, wireless, email) is copyright Web Hits 2 Go. We place no claim on websites that are listed or displayed, but we treat the information as we present it as copyrighted material, as well as the software we use to present it with.
All trademarks appearing on the service are trademarks of their respective owners.
For purposes of this policy, Web Hits 2 Go users are divided into three separate categories:
Visitors: People who come to our site and look around, but don't join
Members: People who sign up for our Traffic Exchange service
Referred members: People who sign up 'beneath' an existing member, or who are bought into a downline.
These policies are subject to change. Most likely, we will add new user classes, where the user will be notified in advance that they are 'opting in' to an email list, and be given the choice to 'not opt in', or to subsequently 'opt out'.
Information collected on Visitors
No personal/private information will be stored about individuals using our search system to find websites.
We will be collecting some information about:
What browser types are accessing the website
How they arrived at this website (i.e.: who/what referred them here)
What part of the world they are connecting from (i.e.: Kansas, Texas, Britain, .com, .net, .org)
This information will be kept as statistical measure only, so we can learn how to better tailor our services for our users.
If the visitor came through a 'referral link', we will attempt to store a cookie on their browser that indicates who referred them. This is to provide credit to the referrer if the visitor joins.
Information collected on Members of our free services
When a person fills in the Join form, we require, store and record their name and electronic mail address, along with the ip address and reported host name of the terminal making the request.
When that person logs in to use our services, we store a temporary electronic 'cookie' on their browser to maintain session information while they are using the service. If they elect 'automatically log me in', we will also store their user name and password in a cookie on their browser.
There is a single, weekly mailing of to all Web Hits 2 Go members who have been active in the past week. It will contain a statistical summary of the past week's activity within their account.
Users who wish to be removed from the list may simply revisit the service area and cancel their membership, and their email will be removed from our database. "Opt out" instructions will also be placed at the bottom of each message sent.
We will not sell, rent, or otherwise distribute any email addresses from our databases*.
Information collected on Referred members
When a person joins Web Hits 2 Go after having been referred by another member, the originating member is notified (in their weekly email) of the member id and handle (if provided) of their 'referral'.
A referred member also has the option to allow the receipt of email from their 'upline'. We offer an incentive (a better visit to credit ratio on autosurf) if they agree to this. This allows their referrer to send them emails through Web Hits 2 Go . The referrer does NOT receive the email address, and must use a form on our site to send a note to the referred member.
The referrer's address may be displayed to the referred member if such an email is sent, so they may respond directly. This is an option to the referrer as to whether or not to display their email address when 'emailing their downline'.
*: "our databases" refers to the email and or physical contact information we have for Web Hits 2 Go members. We will not share this information unless presented with a legal subpoena for governmental inquiry.
