1. About Us
We provide an online platform as a service (PaaS) that enable individuals and organizations to run voting events.
3. How It Works
Users of our online platform are either “Administrators, and/or Event Organizers” or “Participants.” “Administrators” are the individuals or organizations who create the voting events. Administrators use our platform through a separate Services Agreement. Organizations or individuals who vote by casting ballots (“Ballots”) are “Participants”. Participants pay a fee to cast ballots by buying a voting bundle. Administrators or Event Organizers must sign a separate Services Agreement for an account.
Subject to these Terms, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to access and use our online platform as a service (PaaS), as agreed and signed by both parties on a separate Services Agreement.
