PLEASE CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE USING COUNTR.
These terms and conditions of service (“TOS”) govern your use of Countr, which is comprised of www.countr.com and any related applications (including web browser extensions and mobile applications)(“Platform”) and includes their respective internet-based services, features, content, and functionality (“Service” or “Services”).

Company and its licensors, suppliers, affiliates, agents, directors, officers, employees, representatives, successors, and assigns (referred to collectively with Company as “we,” “us,” or “our”) may, at our sole discretion and at any time discontinue this Platform in whole or in part or may prevent or restrict your use of the Platform or any Service, in each case with or without notice to you.
By accepting these terms and conditions, or by using the Platform, you acknowledge and agree to be legally bound by these TOS which incorporate by reference our Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”). If you do not agree to these TOS, please do not use the Platform.
We reserve the right to change these TOS at any time for any reason and without notice, and such modifications shall be deemed effective immediately upon posting of the modified terms. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these TOS, and if you continue to use the Platform after we post any changes to these TOS, you are deemed to have accepted those changes.

2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PLATFORM AND SERVICES
Countr provides you with a personalized, fully-integrated and streamlined shopping experience based upon the information you share and can earn you incentives for your online shopping actions and social behavior. The Platform and Services help you achieve this in two ways: (i) by allowing you to make purchases directly from online merchants through one streamlined check out process and (ii) to analyze your information provided and collected through the Platform and Services, including social history and purchase history, to create a measure or score representative of your clout as an online consumer (“Countrweight”). Your Countrweight is calculated by applying proprietary algorithms to the information that we collect about you through your use of the Platform and Services. Our information collection and use is subject to our Privacy Notice.
Countr uses your Countrweight to suggest items and merchants that may be of interest to you and to allow you to leverage your data and purchasing history to get special promotional offers, rewards, discounts, and benefits from participating merchants. You acknowledge that changes the Platform, Services, our algorithms, or your information may result in a change in your Countrweight, and that we are not liable to you or any third party for any modification of our algorithms, Platform, Services, or your Countrweight.

27. WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

28. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
These TOS, our Privacy Notice, and any other terms and conditions of service on the Platform constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and the Company with respect to the Platform and Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Platform and Services.
