5b. Your Use of the Spota Service, the Spota Cost and payment
By registering to become a Spota Business, you agree that all Spota Member information is owned by Spota. All customer data gathered through the Spota Apps is owned by Spota. You also understand that Spota cannot guarantee that a Spota Member will redeem the reward that you have granted them, after they have claimed it on the Spota App. You understand you will be charged the agreed Spota Cost regardless of whether the Spota Member comes in and redeems the reward and/or offer, or not. For example, any Spota Member may Spota your business; thereby sharing a message via any Spota Channel thus claiming the reward/offer you have pre-arranged with the Service, but the Spota Member may never physically come in to redeem the reward and/or make a purchase; they are under no obligation. You understand that you will be charged the Spota Cost regardless of this fact. You will be charged the Spota Cost as soon as a Member has Spota’d you; that is shared a post status to any or all of their social networks and thus been awarded the reward automatically by the Spota App. You understand that Spota accepts no responsibility for the content/message that the Member has posted about you or your business, or that Spota guarantees it will appear for any length of time. Spota does not filter messages that users post and cannot be held liable for any negative messages that are shared from Spota Users. The Spota Users are in full control of these messages and they go to their own social networks. Spota cannot stop users deleting posts on their networks after they have received the reward from you and Spota assumes no responsibility for this and is not responsible for tracking or monitoring it as it happens within the Spota users private social network.
You understand that Spota does not guarantee which Spota Channel the Spota User will use to communicate a message about your business or how your business name and/or location is be included; the Spota App may try and have your business name in the text, as a watermark over the image, or any other method that Spota deems suitable as promotional material for your business. The rules with social networks and their API’s are always changing and Spota cannot be responsible for guaranteeing that these API’s (ability to link to the social networks) are available, or what rules Spota may have to abide by. Spota reserves the right to add or remove any Spota Channel for your business and the Service in general, at any time. For example, a Spota User may chose to send their message via Facebook OR Twitter OR email OR text message, etc. The message may be in the form of a text-based message AND/OR a photo AND/OR a video, or other media. The various Spota Channels available will likely change over time. Your Spota Cost is per Spota and may not vary depending on which channel the Spota User has chosen to send a message by.
You will need to attach valid payment details to your account and are responsible for ensure the accuracy of these. You understand that we will charge you, periodically (monthly), the debt that has built within your Spota account from people Spota’ing your business and receiving the reward(s) from you. The total amount will be recalculated daily and each day will be a total of the number of Spota’s that day multiplied by the Spota Cost – for example, 10 (ten) Spota Members have Spota’d you business that day and your Spota Cost is GBP£0.50 per Spota – your total charges for that day would be 10x£0.50 = GBP£5.00. The total amount for that day (GBP£5.00) would be added to the total amount so far that month and we will take payment from you with the details you provided, at the end of that month, unless other agreed timeframe with you. Spota will provide you with your payment time details both upon signing up AND you can review this at anytime from within your Business Dashboard, under Your Spend and by clicking to your payment details – you will see “Payment Date: DD/MM/YYYY” indicating when your new payment date is. The amount above this is your running total for that period that we will charge you. You should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any issues or queries with this. By using the Service, you agree to these payment terms.
You may leave the Spota Service at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or closing your account within your Spota Dashboard. You will only be charged for Spota’s up until the moment you requested to leave.
Late Payment Terms
You agree to provide payment on the date that is shown within the Your Spend area of your Spota Business Dashboard. This is on a monthly basis unless otherwise agreed in writing between yourself and Spota.
If your payment method fails or you have not got your payment details saved with us by the payment date / due date, we will attempt to contact you to resolve the issue. We may try to take payment a second or third time over the next 30 working days. After 30 working days of the debt not being settled by you with Spota, we reserve the right to charge interest on this debt at the rate of 5% per month.
Protecting Spota Users Information
We are committed to protecting our users’ information. The Service may present you with specific Spota user information that you may find helpful.

The Spota Cost for your account will be displayed to you under “Your Spend” at the top of you Business Dashboard. You are able to set a daily budget and Spota agrees that regardless of your Spota Cost, the daily amount we charge you (regardless of how often we collect payment) will not exceed the daily budget limits that you set. The Spota Cost particular to your business can be changed by us at any time and by continuing to use the Service, you agree to any changes. We will do our best to contact you using any of the official contact information you provided upon registration, and give you at least 5 business days warning of any changes to your Spota Cost.
