1 Description of Platform; Restrictions
We provide Visitors and Registered Users with access to the Platform as described below.
"Visitors," as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Platform. No application is required for Visitors. Visitors can: (i) view all publicly-available content on the Platform; and (ii) email us. This Agreement governs such Visitors to the extent applicable.
1.2 Registered Contributors, Clients, and Users.
"Registered Customers" are individuals that have completed our Platform registration process and have agreed to contribute personal data in various forms to Delphia via the Platform (the "App Services" ).
"Registered Clients" are U.S. Tax Resident individuals who are eligible under Delphia's eligibility requirements, and who have entered into a separate Discretionary Investment Advisory Agreement with Delphia (USA) Inc. (the "Investment Adviser" ) (which is the Alpaca Customer Agreement if the User became a Registered Client after March 3, 2022, or the Delphia Investment Agreement by Apex if User became a Registered Client after March 3, 2022), pursuant to which the Investment Adviser provides such individuals with investment management advice and services through the access to the Platform (the "Investment Services," and together with the App Services, the "Services" ).
"Users" are Registered Customers or Registered Clients who have subscribed for the Investment Services on the Platform.
Registered Customers and Registered Clients have the ability to: (i) complete surveys, as well as connect social media and other data sources to the Platform; (ii) create, access, manage, and update their own personal accounts on the Platform; and (iii) sign up for alerts and other notifications.
Delphia is not under any obligation to accept any individual as a Registered Customer and may accept or reject any registration in its sole and complete discretion. The Investment Adviser is not under any obligation to accept any individual as a Registered Client and may accept or reject any registration at its sole and complete discretion.
In addition, Delphia or the Investment Adviser may deactivate or suspend any account at any time, including, without limitation, if Delphia or the Investment Adviser determines that a Registered Customer or Registered Client, respectively, has violated this Agreement or the Investment Advisory Agreement.
Each of Delphia and the Investment Adviser reserve the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to deny you access to the Mobile App or the Platform, or any portion of either, without notice and without reason.
Each of Delphia and the Investment Adviser additionally reserve the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to require Users to hold and maintain certain thresholds of PHI in order to obtain access to or utilize the complete capacity of the Mobile App and the Platform (any such requirements, the "Token-Based Restrictions"). To the extent Delphia or the Investment Adviser implement any such Token-Based Restrictions, Delphia or the Investment Adviser reserve the right to allow Users who have subscribed for Investment Services on the Platform prior to the date of implementation of any Token-Based Restrictions continued access to or utilization of the Mobile App and the Platform regardless of their PHI holdings, subject to any additional restrictions that Delphia or the Investment Adviser may implement in its sole and absolute discretion.
For the avoidance of doubt, your access to and use of the Platform, including the Mobile App, shall be governed by this Agreement, and the Investment Services through the Platform and provision of any other investment advisory services shall be governed by the Investment Advisory Agreement, as applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything else in this Agreement to the contrary, in the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Investment Advisory Agreement, the terms and conditions of the Investment Advisory Agreement shall control in respect of the Investment Services you receive.
2 Delphia Investment Accounts
When you become a Registered Client of the Investment Adviser, in addition to the terms in the Investment Advisory Agreement, your use of the Platform is subject to this Agreement. In the event this Agreement conflicts with the Investment Advisory Agreement, the Investment Advisory Agreement shall govern.
2.1 Fees and Charges
Management fees (the "Management Fees") can be found on the Website and in the Mobile App. Special terms and conditions may apply. The Investment Adviser reserves the right to change the Management Fees from time to time subject to the terms of the Investment Advisory Agreement.
Please refer to your Investment Advisory Agreement for more details on fees and charges.
Details on what services are covered by the Management Fees are available at Fees and Charges.
Subject to the terms in the Investment Advisory Agreement, you can discontinue incurring future Management Fees and terminate the Investment Advisory Agreement in respect of your investment account(s) (the "Investment Account" ) managed by the Investment Adviser at any time. Please note that uninstalling the Mobile App or closing your Registered Customer account will not automatically stop your Management Fees, if any, or terminate the Investment Advisory Agreement that applies to your Investment Account(s). You must actively cancel the Management Fees, if any, and terminate your Investment Advisory Agreement. Please contact us at email@example.com to cancel your Management Fees, if any, and terminate your Investment Advisory Agreement and Investment Account(s).

The trademarks, service marks, and logos of Delphia (the "Delphia Trademarks" ) used and displayed on the Platform are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of Delphia. Other company, product, and service names located on the Platform may be trademarks or service marks owned by others (the "Third-Party Trademarks," and, collectively with Delphia Trademarks, the "Trademarks" ). Nothing on the Platform should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use the Trademarks without our prior written permission specific for each such use. Use of the Trademarks as part of a link to or from any site is prohibited unless establishment of such a link is approved in advance by us in writing.

None of the Content may be retransmitted without our express, written consent for each and every instance.
3.2 No Offers or Reliance; No Investment or Financial Advice
Visitors should note that no information set forth in areas of the Platform that Visitors have access to (the "Visitor User Areas" ) should be construed as investment or financial advice. The Visitor User Areas are limited to the dissemination of general information pertaining to Delphia's data collection and investment advisory services, together with access to additional investment-related information, publications, and links. Accordingly, the publication of information on the Visitor User Areas on the Internet should not be construed by any client and/or prospective client/investor as Delphia's solicitation to effect, or attempt to effect, transactions in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, over the Internet.
Delphia is neither a law firm nor an accounting firm, and no portion of the Platform should be interpreted as legal, accounting, or tax advice. To the extent that past performance is available through the Platform, past performance is not indicative of future results, and no representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided.
No material available through the Platform shall be used or considered as an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy the securities or services of any of our affiliated entities. Offers can only be made where lawful under, and in compliance with, applicable law.
Please remember that different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by Delphia), will be profitable or equal to any historical performance levels.
Research Content discussed on the Platform (such as trends) does not constitute investment advice or a recommendation that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person.
Investments discussed on the Platform, if any, may not be suitable for all investors. Investors should make their own investment decisions based upon their own financial objectives and financial resources, and should obtain independent investment, legal, and tax advice before deciding to invest.
Investments discussed on the Platform ultimately may generate positive returns, and other investments made in these asset classes or geographic regions, but not discussed on the Platform, may generate negative returns, or vice versa. It should not be assumed that investments made for any particular account will match the performance or character of the investments discussed on the Platform, or that the returns of any accounts managed by Delphia will equal the performance of the investments discussed on the Platform. Investors may experience materially different results.
3.3 No Inside Information; No Guaranteed Results
Delphia obtains information from a wide variety of publicly-available sources. Delphia does not have, nor does it claim to have, sources of inside or private information. The recommendations developed by Delphia in connection with its services are based upon the professional judgment of Delphia, and Delphia cannot and does not guarantee the results of any recommendations.
3.4 Forward-Looking Statements
The Platform contains certain "forward-looking statements," which may be identified by the use of such words as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "should," "planned," "estimated," "potential," and other similar terms. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, estimates with respect to the financial condition, results of operations, and the success or lack of success of Delphia's investment process or strategy. All are subject to various factors, including, but not limited to, general and local economic conditions, changing levels of competition within certain industries and markets, changes in interest rates, changes in legislation or regulation, and other economic, competitive, governmental, regulatory, and technological factors affecting Delphia's operations that could cause actual results to differ materially from projected results.
3.5 Positions and Recommendations
Certain portions of the Platform may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to, Delphia's (and those of other investment and non-investment professionals) positions and/or recommendations as of a specific prior date. Due to various factors, including changing market conditions, such discussion may no longer be reflective of current positions and/or recommendations. Moreover, no Registered Client should assume that any such discussion serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from Delphia or from any other investment professional.
3.6 Rankings and Rating Services
Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a Registered Client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Delphia is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should they be construed as current or past endorsements of Delphia by any of its Registered Clients. Rankings published by magazines and others generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. Moreover, with regard to any performance information contained on the Platform, directly or indirectly, users should note that past results are not indicative of future results.
3.7 Communications With and Submissions To Us
Although we encourage you to email us, we do not want you to, and you should not, email us any content that contains confidential information. With respect to all emails and communications you send to us, including, but not limited to, ratings, feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, and the like, we shall be free to use any ratings data, ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in your communications for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, the development, production, and marketing of products and services that incorporate such information without compensation or attribution to you.

In connection with any liability arising under this Agreement or related to your use of the Platform or Content: (i) we and our licensors shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages, lost profits, or damages , even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages; and (ii) any direct damages that you may suffer arising under this Agreement or related to your use of the Platform or the Content shall be limited to the total fees that you have paid to us within the six (6) months immediately preceding the events giving rise to any claim.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties. Therefore, some of the above limitations on warranties in this section may not apply to you.
3.9 External Sites
The Platform may contain links to third-party websites ( "External Sites" ). These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by us of the content on such External Sites. The content of such External Sites is developed and provided by others. You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or any content located on such External Sites. We are not responsible for the content of any linked External Sites and do not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such External Sites. You should take precautions when downloading files from all websites to protect your computer from viruses and other destructive programs. If you decide to access linked External Sites, you do so at your own risk.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us and our officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, licensees, licensors, and assigns harmless from and against any damages, liabilities, losses, expenses, claims, actions, and/or demands, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from: (i) your breach of this Agreement or the Investment Advisory Agreement; (ii) your misuse of the Content or the Platform; and/or (iii) your violation of any third-party rights, including without limitation any copyright, trademark, property, publicity, or privacy right. We shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and shall assist you, at your expense, in defending any such claim, suit, or proceeding. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control (at your expense) of any matter that is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting our defense of such matter.
3.11 Compliance with Applicable Laws
We make no claims concerning whether the Platform may be used or the Content may be downloaded, viewed, or be appropriate for use outside of the United States. If you access the Platform or the Content from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. Whether inside or outside of the United States, you are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction.
3.12 Termination of the Agreement
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate this Agreement and your access to all or any part of the Platform, at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Platform at any time without prior notice or liability. Sections 3.3 to 3.17 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
3.13 Controlling Law
This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
3.14 Binding Arbitration
In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement, the Content, or the Platform (each, a "Dispute" ), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ( "FAA" ). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. If either party chooses arbitration, neither party shall have the right to litigate such claim in court or to have a jury trial, except either party may bring its claim in its local small claims court, if permitted by that small claims court rules and if within such court's jurisdiction. Arbitration is different from court, and discovery and appeal rights may also be limited in arbitration. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS' Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS' rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator's award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. As set forth in Section 3.16 below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.
3.15 Class Action Waiver
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. You agree that you may bring claims against us only in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
3.16 Equitable Relief
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of New York, Borough of Manhattan for purposes of any such action by us.
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will insure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.

6 PHI Rewards Program
"Earn" means for a User to be rewarded PHI via Eligible Transactions.
"Eligible Transactions" means certain activities on the Platform which Users engage in on the Platform for which Delphia may distribute PHI, which activities may be amended or modified by Delphia in its sole and absolute discretion pursuant to Section 6.3.
6.2 PHI Rewards Program Overview
As described in further detail in our litepaper, Earned PHI may exist in three states within our ecosystem, each of which is represented on a User's account page as different balanced titled Unclaimed, Withdrawable and Wallet.
- "Unclaimed" PHI is Earned PHI in an Accountholder's Delphia account; these are "credits" that an Accountholder may claim and withdraw as ERC-20 tokens, at the Accountholder's discretion.
- "Withdrawable" PHI is PHI associated with a User's personal Ethereum wallet in the claim smart contract and represents a withdrawable balance that can accrue without having to pay transaction fees until a User withdraws such Withdrawable PHI to their personal Ethereum wallet.
- "Wallet" PHI are PHI in a User's personal Ethereum wallet as ERC-20 tokens. Once in this state, a User has full control over their PHI. Users may move Withdrawable PHI to their personal Ethereum wallet by clicking "Withdraw" which requires the User to sign the transaction and pay applicable gas fees.
PHI may be used to qualify or receive certain benefits that are offered via the Platform. Delphia will not ascribe any monetary value to PHI as part of the PHI Rewards Program nor will Delphia make PHI convertible into cash or any asset at any given time.
Account Termination: Upon an Accountholder choosing to terminate their User account, User shall forfeit all rights to any Unclaimed PHI; provided, that, in no event shall User forfeit any rights to any Withdrawable or Wallet PHI.
Each of Delphia and the Investment Adviser reserve the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to require Users to hold and maintain certain thresholds of Earned PHI in order to obtain access to or utilize complete capacity of the Mobile App and the Platform. To the extent Delphia or the Investment Adviser implement any such Token-Based Restrictions, Delphia or the Investment Adviser reserve the right to allow Users who have subscribed for Investment Services on the Platform prior to the date of implementation of any Token-Based Restrictions continued access to or utilization of the Mobile App and the Platform regardless of their Earned PHI holdings, subject to any additional restrictions that Delphia or the Investment Adviser may implement in its sole and absolute discretion.
Delphia reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to alter, change and/or terminate the PHI Rewards Program, at any time and for any reason upon notice to you.
6.3 Eligible Transactions
Accountholders may Earn PHI for certain Eligible Transactions, which may include but may not be limited to, the Eligible Transactions listed in this Section 6.3. The list of Eligible Transactions and amount of PHI Earned by the User for engaging in such Eligible Transactions are subject to change from time to time in Delphia's sole discretion and without notice.
Accountholders may Earn PHI for the following Eligible Transactions:
- Contribution of Data. Upon connecting each unique data connection, an Accountholder will receive an amount of PHI to be designated from time to time by Delphia in its sole discretion. For each subsequent week in which such unique data connection remains connected to the Platform through the User's account, an Accountholder will receive an amount of PHI to be designated from time to time by Delphia in its sole discretion.
- Participation in Games. See Section 8.
No PHI for Prior Activities. Other than with respect to a User's participation in Games referenced in Section 8 below, Accountholder's shall not be entitled to Earn PHI for engaging in Eligible Transactions prior to January 3, 2023.
6.4 User Representations and Warranties; Prohibited Conduct
- Secondary market(s) for PHI may not exist, and Delphia will have no obligation to facilitate any secondary trading of PHI and does not intend to do so;
- Delphia will not ascribe any monetary value to PHI as part of the PHI Rewards Program, and Delphia will not make PHI convertible into cash or any asset at any given time; and
- Delphia does not guarantee that you will receive any PHI or that any particular benefit for holding PHI will be available at any given time.
- Use the PHI Rewards Program for any illegal purpose in violation of any applicable federal, national, state, provincial and local laws, rules and regulations;
- Interfere with any security-related features of the PHI Rewards Program, including by: disabling or circumventing features that prevent or limit use, printing or copying any content; or reverse engineering or otherwise attempting to discover the source code of any portion of the App Services except to the extent that the activity is expressly permitted by applicable law;
- Perform any fraudulent activity including impersonating any person or entity, claiming a false affiliation or identity, accessing any other account without permission, or falsifying your age or date of birth; or
- Attempt to do any of the acts described above or assist or permit any person in engaging in any of the acts described above.
7 Terms + Conditions for the Referral Program
Delphia may at times offer you the opportunity to refer friends via a referral program (each, a "Referral Program") offered on the Platform.
7.1 Binding Agreement
By using the Platform or participating in the Referral Program, both Users making a referral and those who accept a referral are bound by this Agreement and indicate their agreement to it.
7.2 How the Program Works.
Using the Platform, a User may participate in a Referral Program, that may allow them to receive certain rewards that may be designated by Delphia from time to time in its sole discretion (any such rewards, "Referral Program Awards") by inviting their eligible friends, family members or colleagues that are personally known to the User ("Friends") to register as new Delphia users using a unique referral code ("Referral Program Codes"). Users may refer as many Friends as they like throughout the entirety of the Referral Program. Referral Program Codes must be used for the intended audience and purposes and may not be sold or transferred in any manner or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Delphia. Any Referral Program Rewards are non-transferable, may not be resold, and are not redeemable for cash, cash equivalent or other consideration.
7.3 Referrer Eligibility
Once a User makes a referral with their Referral Program Code, he/she becomes a "Referrer". The Referrer must send the Referral Program Code to his/her Friends in order to become eligible to receive any Referral Program Rewards. Only permanent legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older who have an open investment account on the Delphia Platform, may become a "Referrer" and refer individuals to Delphia under any Referral Program.
7.4 Referred Friend Eligibility
Only tax residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older who can open an investment account on the Delphia Platform may become a "Referred Friend" and be referred to Delphia under the Referral Program. In addition, in order to receive any Referral Program Rewards then designated by Delphia, the Referred Friend (i) cannot be a prior or current, customer, client or User of the Delphia Platform, (ii) must be a first-time User of the Platform as a result of your referral, and (iii) must open an investment account on the Delphia Platform (a "Valid Referral"). For greater certainty, a Referred Friend will be disqualified, and your referral will not be a Valid Referral, and neither you nor your Referred Friend will receive any Referral Program Rewards (if applicable) if Delphia has a record of their name, email, phone number, or device being linked to an existing active or inactive Delphia account.
7.5 Referral Best Practices
While, in theory, a Referrer can refer an unlimited number of Friends using their Referral Program Code, in practice Referrers should only refer Friends that are personally known to them and we reserve the right to disallow referrals where there is no personal connection between the Referrer and the referred.
7.6 Referral Abuse
Referrers cannot refer themselves or create multiple, fictitious or fake accounts with Delphia. No User may use the Referral Program to violate any law, infringe or violate the rights of any third party, or otherwise act in a manner that is deemed harassing, harmful, illegal, hateful, obscene or outside the spirit and intent of the Referral Program. In addition, you may not (i) tamper with the Referral Program, (ii) act in an unfair or disruptive manner, or (iii) use any system, bot or other device or artifice to participate or receive any benefit in the Referral Program. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE REFERRAL PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS.

9 Game Terms - Consensus
Consensus is a game (the "Game") that rewards Users' ability to forecast the unknown.You may participate if you are a User.
9.1 Consensus Overview
If you are a participating User, you will be presented with a series of rounds with questions relating to current events or trends in the market.You will be given the opportunity to signal your beliefs in market trends and current events by submitting answers using PHI given to you. Each game, you will be given a set amount of PHI.
To play the Game you must submit an answer by using a portion of the PHI given to you per round. You can only use the amount of PHI given to you for that specific individual round.The more PHI you put down, the more that can be earned by landing in the winning region. At the end of the game, the User(s) who land in the winning region will earn their share of the pooled PHI.
9.2 Consensus Gameplay
Winning players will earn their share of the token pool for each round they play. Players who use higher amounts of PHI to make their prediction will earn proportionately higher amounts of PHI. For instance, if a player puts down 1 PHI and wins 2 PHI, then a player who puts down 5 PHI would win 10 PHI.
Any amount that is not put down will be added to a User's balance. For example, if a player feels very confident about their answer they might choose to put down 70% of the given PHI to submit an answer. Once a game is over there are multiple potential outcomes:
• Scenario A: Your prediction was right and you land in the winning region resulting in you earning your share of the pooled tokens.
• Scenario B: Your prediction was wrong, you are not in the winning region resulting in you losing the PHI used to make the prediction.
• Scenario C: No majority was found, there is no winning region resulting in each player receiving their PHI back and there are no winnings to share.
9.3 General Terms
a. You do not need to have any PHI in advance to play. You'll be given PHI for each game that can be used to submit an answer. You are only able to submit answers from the PHI given to you for that game.
b. Participants who use more of the given PHI to submit answers will earn proportionately more if they are a winner.
c. Rewards are calculated when the game ends. You can see the end date at the bottom of the question.
d. Once an answer is submitted it may not be changed.
You are over 18 years of age, or such higher minimum legal age of majority as stipulated in the jurisdiction of your residence and are, under the laws applicable to you, legally allowed to participate in the game. However, only Accountholders that satisfy the eligibility requirements set forth in Section 6.2 are eligible to Earn PHI.
Subject to your agreement and continuing compliance with these Game Terms, we grant you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, limited license to access and use the game, solely for your personal, private entertainment and for no other reason. Except for this limited license, these Game Terms do not grant you any right, title or interest in the Game.
You acknowledge and agree that your license to use the Game is limited by these Game Terms and if you do not agree to, or act in contravention of, these Game Terms, your license to participate in the Game may be immediately terminated with or without terminating the rest of the Agreement.
