Moola Terms of Service
Last Updated: September 3, 2019
Welcome to Moola (the “Moola App”), an app operated by MOOLA INC. (“Moola”, “we”, “our”). Moola, the Moola App, and related functions and services are provided to you subject to your compliance with the following Terms of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”).
Please read through these Terms carefully. Your use or continued use of the Moola App will indicate your agreement to these Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the Terms, you may not use the Moola App, and you should delete it from your device now.
Description of Services
The Moola App currently offers gift card services (described in this section 1 and further in section 5).
The Moola App allows you to enter and store your gifts cards and loyalty cards (each, a “Card”) issued from merchant stores (the “Merchants”). You can do this by either selecting a Merchant from our pre-existing list of Merchants (the “Listed Merchants”), or by using your camera phone to upload a photo and enter the barcode of a Card that is issued from a non-Listed Merchant. You can use the Moola App to use or redeem or collect points on your Card in connection with purchases from the Merchant named on such Card. You can purchase gift cards from the Moola marketplace (the “Marketplace”).
In connection with the services described above, and subject to the permissions you give us, we have may design the Moola App to provide you with additional supplemental services, such as the contact information and locations of Listed Merchants.
The services described in this section, along with any other future services that we design for the Moola App, are collectively, the “Services”.
All aspects of the Services are subject to change or elimination at Moola’s sole discretion. Moola reserves the right to interrupt the Services with or without prior notice for any reason or for no reason. You agree that Moola will not be liable to you for any interruption of the Services, delay or failure to perform.
License to Use the Services
Subject to these Terms, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable, license to use the Moola App and the Services for your personal, non-commercial use only. Moola reserves all rights to the Moola App, the Services and the Moola Content (defined below) not expressly granted herein. Moola may terminate this license at any time for any reason or for no reason.
2. MEMBER ACCOUNTS
You may register for a single account (a “Member Account”) if you are an individual over the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside. You may also register for a Member Account on behalf of a company in good standing, provided that you have the authority to enter into contracts on behalf of such company. By creating a Member Account, you are representing that you have the legal right and capacity to enter into and be bound by this Agreement. You are also promising to comply with these Terms and all applicable local, provincial, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations for so long as you maintain your Member Account and use the Services.
To access the Services, you will need to register a Member Account and become a “Moola Member”. When creating your Member Account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Member Account, and you must keep your password and PIN (if applicable) secure.
You may control your Member profile and how you interact with the Services by changing the settings in the Moola App. In your settings, you may choose to access the Moola App through your fingerprint instead of a PIN. By enabling Touch ID, every person with an enrolled fingerprint on your device will have access to your Member Account. Fingerprints are only stored on your device and we do not see or store your fingerprint information during the authentication process.
By providing Moola with your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Services-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail.
You may never use another Member’s account without permission or create more than one account. Moola will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Member Account by you or anyone else. You are responsible for safeguarding your mobile device and for all transfers and/or transactions, including those performed with Touch ID. If you think someone has gained access to your Member Account, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, you agree that you will not:
(i) create another account if we’ve disabled your Member Account;
(ii) buy, sell, transfer, rent lease or allow access to your Member Account without our prior written consent; or
(iii) log in or try to log in to access your Member Account or the Services through unauthorized third party applications.
Termination or Suspension of Member Accounts
Moola may permanently or temporarily terminate, suspend or Member Account or otherwise refuse to permit your access to the Moola App or Services without notice or liability for any reason, including if in Moola’s sole determination, you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason.

The Moola App allows you to enter and store your gift cards and loyalty cards as set forth in Section 1 of this Agreement. For each gift card or loyalty card that you enter or store on the Moola App (each, a “Card”), you represent and warrant the following:
i) the Card is a valid gift card or loyalty card of the Merchant named on such Card;

The terms of your transaction with any given Merchant are solely between you and the Merchant, and Moola will not be liable for any failure of the Merchant to accept or process your Card, or for any issues whatsoever arising from any transactions between you and the Merchant, including any failures or errors with scanning your Card through the Moola App.
You may purchase gift cards (each, a “Purchased Card”) through the Marketplace.

We are not the issuers of the Purchased Card, and assume no liability for the Purchased Card. All transactions are final. There are no refunds or exchanges. If you do not receive your Purchased Card within 24 hours, you should immediately contact Moola with your reference number.
