<aside> ➡️ This page explains our terms of use. When you use Bount, you're agreeing to all of the rules below.


1. Welcome to Bount

Bount is a marketplace for bounties. Users post incentivized requests (i.e., "bounts") that can be public, private, targeted at specific entities, or open to anyone to fulfill. The reward (i.e., "bounty") attached to the successful fulfillment of the request can be funded (i.e., "backed") by a single user or crowdfunded by many. If a bount is fulfilled to the satisfaction of its backers, the bounty is released to the fulfiller.

By using this web application (the "Site") and services (together with the Site, the "Services") offered by Bount Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors—collectively, "Bount," "we," or "us"), you're agreeing to these legally binding rules (the "Terms"). You're also agreeing to our Privacy Policy, Cookie Policy, and to follow any other rule or guideline on the Site such as refraining from prohibited requests and behavior.

We may change these terms periodically and as needed. If we do, we'll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you through the Site or via email. New versions of the terms will not apply retroactively, and we'll inform you when they go into effect. If you keep using Bount after a change, that means you accept the new terms.

It is expressly prohibited to impersonate anyone else or choose names that are offensive or in violation of someone's rights. If you do not follow the terms or rules of Bount, we reserve the right to suspend or cancel your account at any time.
