Please read them carefully, because they contain important disclosures and information regarding terms of sale, among other terms that may affect your legal rights
(1) Your Acceptance of the Terms
- These Terms constitute a binding legal agreement (“Agreement,” though we may use “Terms” interchangeably with “Agreement” herein) in electronic form between you (“you,” “your” and/or “yourself”) and Hooked, Inc. and its successors, subsidiaries, affiliates and family of brands (“Hooked,” “HOOKED” “we,” “us” and/or “our”).

- In some instances, both these Terms and separate terms of service or guidelines setting forth additional conditions may apply to a service or product or a benefit offered via the Sites ("Additional Terms"). The Additional Terms are incorporated by reference into these Terms. The Additional Terms are generally intended to be supplemental to these Terms, but to the extent there is an express conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise and/or unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law.
(2) Electronic Communication
The communications between you and Hooked are electronic. You consent to receive communications from Hooked in an electronic form. You agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing.
(3) Your Privacy
(4) Certain Conditions Placed on Your Use of the Sites and Service
Your permission to use the Sites and/or Services is conditioned upon your agreement that you:
Will comply with these Terms
Are able to form a binding contract with us;
Are not prohibited by law from accessing our Sites and/or Services or have not previously been banned, terminated or otherwise denied access to our Sites and/or Services by us; are not acting on behalf of a person whose access to our Sites and/or Services has been previously terminated or otherwise denied by us;
Will not impersonate another user of the Sites and/or Services
(5) Your Account
You will need to register by creating an account with Hooked (either by registering directly with us or by allowing a Hooked application to connect through your Facebook profile) (an “Account”) in order to obtain access to certain Services, including Offers, or Hooks, and to utilize the HOOKED virtual wallet.
If you choose to create an Account, you agree to provide only accurate, complete registration information, and you will keep that information up-to-date if it changes. When you register, you will obtain unique log-in credentials (a “User ID”).
Access to the Hooked Site and Services is not authorized by any other person or entity using your User ID and you are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use. Individuals and entities whose privilege to access the Site or use the Services has previously been terminated by Hooked may not register for an Account, nor may you designate any of those individuals to use your Account on your behalf.
Hooked relies on User IDs to know whether users accessing the Site and using our Services are authorized to do so. If someone accesses our Site or Services using a User ID that we have issued to you, we will rely on that User ID and will assume that access has been made by you. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Site or use of the Services by persons using your User ID.
If you believe your User ID is compromised in any way, please notify us immediately. If you become aware that your User ID is being used without authorization please notify us immediately.
(6) Offers: Hooked provides consumers with Hooks
A Non-Voucher Offer: Hook.
HOOKED has proprietary technology that allows a Merchant to create and distribute to HOOKED consumers a non-voucher type offer via the web or the mobile phone. This type of offer, typically of limited duration, is created on the HOOKED Merchant Portal, and then distributed as a notice of a “right” to obtain certain goods or services at a discount. I.E. Joe’s Bar will make available its $6 Nachos Appetizer for $3. Only good from 4 p.m. CDT to 6:30 p.m.
The Consumer is not buying a voucher.
The Consumer is receiving notice of an offer to acquire time sensitive, and probably, with restrictions, certain goods or services. In order to redeem and claim the offer made via the Hook technology, it will generally be necessary for the Consumer to show the sponsoring Merchant the offer on their mobile device when they enter the immediate proximity of the Merchant Location. If the Consumer is not immediately adjacent to , or within the sponsoring HOOKED Merchant Hook location, the HOOKED application will not allow the Consumer to unlock and claim the offer.
The HOOKED Consumer is not making a purchase of any type in response to the receipt of a Hook notice from a local Merchant on the HOOKED application. The transaction that occurs, if it occurs, is transacted directly with the Sponsoring Merchant.
(7) Other Services
In addition to our great Offers, and the benefits provided through the HOOKED services, we may from time to time offer some other products and services to our HOOKED consumers. We will set forth any terms specific to those products or services at the point of purchase or subscription under the exact same terms and conditions that apply to our HOOKED Merchants.

(17) Arbitration of Disputes Governed By Arbitration
This agreement and any arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) as a court, and must follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes.
The AAA’s rules are available at http://Hooked.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. We will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims totaling less than $1,000. For larger claims, payment of those fees will be governed by the AAA’s fee schedule for Consumer Arbitration Costs.
You and Hooked may be able to recover attorney’s fees in arbitration as you/we would in court if they are available under applicable law. For any claim that could otherwise be brought in small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, a telephonic hearing. If the claim exceeds what can be recovered in a small claims court, and the arbitrator deems a face-to-face hearing is appropriate, the hearing will be conducted in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location that is convenient to you.
A decision by the arbitrator (including any finding of fact and/or conclusion of law) against either you or Hooked shall be confidential unless otherwise required to be disclosed by law or by any administrative body and may not be collaterally used by either you or us in existing or subsequent litigation or arbitration involving any other person or Hooked customer.
We both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement, unauthorized access or trespass to computer networks or any other misuse, misappropriation or theft of intellectual property rights.
We also each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.
The arbitral tribunal shall have the power to rule on any challenge to its own jurisdiction or to the validity or enforceability of any portion of this agreement to arbitrate. If any part of this arbitration provision is held unenforceable, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the unenforceable provision were not contained. If, however, the class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entire arbitration provision shall be null and void. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial and agree that we shall litigate exclusively in the courts located in Delaware.

(18) Indemnity, Reservation of Right, Release
- You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Hooked and its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to Hooked; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms or this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including, without limitation, any copyright, property or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that any User Content submitted by you causes damage to a third-party.

- You agree to waive California Civil Code Section 1542 (if you are a California resident), and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction (if you are a resident of such jurisdiction), which states: "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."
(19) Applicable Law
- By using our Services, you agree to these Terms and you further agree that any claim or dispute between you and Hooked that arises out of this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Delaware, without regard to conflict of law principles, except that the arbitration provisions contained herein shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
