TERMS & CONDITIONS
Thanks for using QuoDeck! We’re happy you’re here. Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before accessing or using QuoDeck. Because this is an important contract between us, we have tried to make it as clear as possible. For your convenience, we’ve presented a short version or a TLDR in a non-binding summary at the start of each section, followed by the full legal terms.
By registering or using our Services, you agree to be bound by the Terms.
If you are using QuoDeck or Websites on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to the Terms for that organization (in which event, “you”, or “your” will refer to that organization), and representing to QuoDeck that you have the authority to bind that organization to the Terms unless that organization has a separate written contract in effect with us (an “Agreement”), in which case the Terms will govern your use of QuoDeck; but if there is any conflict between the Terms and an Agreement, the provisions of the Agreement shall prevail. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT USE QUODECK.
If you have any comments or questions regarding the Terms, or wish to report any violation of the Terms, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. What is this?
1.1. Let’s first introduce ourselves. QuoDeck is a cloud hosted, training platform that helps onboard, train and engage audiences through the use of entertainment mechanics like games and gamification. You add others to the platform to consume training content and information (collectively “Users”).
QuoDeck typically stores the events / logs related to User’s use of the platform and services. QuoDeck also stores Your Content and User Data.
TLDR: We use these basic terminologies throughout these Terms, and they have specific meanings. This section is to clarify what these mean in the context of the Terms you’re reading. Basically, so we are all on the same page!
An “Account” represents your legal relationship with QuoDeck. Your “Personal Account” represents an individual user’s authorization to log in to and use QuoDeck, and serves as a User’s identity on QuoDeck. “Training Platforms” are shared spaces where multiple users can access and consume Your Content, and generate User Data. A Personal Account can be a member of any number of Training Platforms.
“Account-Related Information” means contact information and biographical information about Users and other stakeholders that may be used for marketing, opening new User accounts to use QuoDeck, and to maintain existing accounts.
“Agreement” refers collectively to all the terms and conditions, notices within or referred to in this document (“Terms”), and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that we may publish from time to time on our Website. Most of our site policies are available at http://legal.quodeck.com.
“Beta Previews” means software, services or features identified as alpha, beta, preview, early access, or evaluation, or words or phrases with similar meaning.
“Content” refers to content featured or displayed through the Website, including without limitation code, text, data, articles, images, photographs, graphics, software, applications, packages, designs, features, and other materials that are available on the Website or otherwise available through the Service. "Content" also includes Services. “Your Content” is Content, written or otherwise, created or uploaded by our Users. "Your Content" is Content that you create or own.
“QuoDeck”, “Our”, “Us” and ‘We” refers to QuoDeck Technologies PLC, as well as our affiliates, directors, subsidiaries, contractors, licensors, officers, agents and employees.
“Services” refers to the applications, software, products and services provided by QuoDeck, including any Beta Previews.
The “User”, “You”, and “Your” refers to the individual person, company or organization that has visited or is using the Website or Services; that accesses or uses any part of the Account; or that directs the use of the Account in the performance of its functions. A User must be at least 13 years of age. Special terms may apply for business or government Accounts.
The “Website” refers to QuoDeck’s website located at quodeck.com, and all content, services, and products provided by QuoDeck at or through the Website. It also refers to QuoDeck-owned subdomains of quodeck.com. These Terms also govern product websites, such as gamiquo.com. Occasionally, websites owned by QuoDeck may provide different or additional terms of service. If those additional terms conflict with this Agreement, the more specific terms apply to the relevant page or service.
2. Account Terms
TLDR: Personal Accounts and Training Platforms have different administrative controls; a human must create your account; you must be 13 or over; you must provide a valid email address; and you may not have more than one account with us. You alone are responsible for your Account and anything that happens while you are signed in to or using your Account. You are responsible for keeping your Account secure.
2.1 Account Controls.
Users - Subject to these Terms, you retain ultimate administrative control over your Personal Account and the Content within it.
Training Platforms - The "owner" of a Training Platform that was created under these Terms has ultimate administrative control over that Training Platform and the Content within it. Within the Service, an owner can manage User access to the Training Platforms content. A Training Platform cannot have multiple owners, and is mapped to a single Personal Account designated as an owner of the Training Platform. If you are the owner of a Training Platform under these Terms, we consider you responsible for the actions that are performed on or through that Training Platform.
2.2. Account Requirements
We have a few simple rules for Personal Accounts on QuoDeck
2.3. Account Security
You are responsible for keeping your Account secure while you use our Service. We offer tools such as changing password to help you maintain your Account's security, but the content of your Account and its security are up to you.
2.4. Additional Terms
In some situations, third parties' terms may apply to your use of QuoDeck. For example, you may add videos using YouTube or Vimeo, applications with whom QuoDeck has an integration. Please be aware that while these Terms are our full agreement with you, other parties' terms govern their relationships with you.
If you are a government User or otherwise accessing or using any QuoDeck Service in a government capacity, some additional QuoDeck Terms of Service may apply to you.
If you have signed up for QuoDeck Enterprise, the Master Subscription Agreement applies to you, and you agree to its provisions.
3. User Generated Content
TLDR: You own content you create, but you allow us certain rights to it, so that we can display and share the content on your Training Platform. You have complete control over and responsibility for your content, and the rights you grant us are limited to those we need to provide the service. We have the right to remove content or close Accounts if we need to.
3.1. Responsibility for User-Generated Content
You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.
3.2. QuoDeck may remove Content
We have the right to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any laws or QuoDeck terms or policies. User-Generated Content displayed on QuoDeck Mobile Apps may be subject to mobile app stores' additional terms.
3.3. Ownership of Content, Right to Post, and License Grants
You retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content. If you're posting anything you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you post; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third-party licenses relating to Content you post.
Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other QuoDeck Users — certain legal permissions, listed in Sections 3 (3.4) — 4 (3.6). These license grants apply to Your Content. If you upload Content that already comes with a license granting QuoDeck the permissions we need to run our Service, no additional license is required. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of the rights granted in Sections 3 (3.4) — 3 (3.6). The licenses you grant to us will end when you remove Your Content from our servers.
3.4. License Grant to Us
We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, and share it. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, archive, parse, and display Your Content, and make incidental copies, as necessary to provide the Service, including improving the Service over time. This license includes the right to do things like copy it to our database and make backups; show it to you and other users; parse it into a search index or otherwise analyze it on our servers; share it with other users; and perform it, in case Your Content is something like music or video.
This license does not grant QuoDeck the right to sell or monetize Your Content. It also does not grant QuoDeck the right to otherwise distribute or use Your Content outside of our provision of the Service, except that as part of the right to archive Your Content, QuoDeck may permit our cloud partners to store and archive Your Content.
3.5. License Grant to Other Users
By inviting other Users to your Training Platform, you grant each invited User a non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, display, and perform Your Content through the QuoDeck Service. You may grant further rights if you adopt a paid license for other plans. If you are uploading Content you did not create or own, you are responsible for ensuring that the Content you upload is licensed under terms that grant these permissions to other QuoDeck Users.
3.6. Moral Rights
You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you upload, publish, or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in Section 3.4, but not otherwise.
To the extent this agreement is not enforceable by applicable law, you grant QuoDeck the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service.
4. Intellectual Property

As a user of Beta Previews, you may get access to special information that isn’t available to the rest of the world. Due to the sensitive nature of this information, it’s important for us to make sure that you keep that information secret.
Confidentiality Obligations. You agree that any non-public Beta Preview information we give you, such as information about a private Beta Preview, will be considered QuoDeck’s confidential information (collectively, “Confidential Information”), regardless of whether it is marked or identified as such. You agree to only use such Confidential Information for the express purpose of testing and evaluating the Beta Preview (the “Purpose”), and not for any other purpose. You should use the same degree of care as you would with your own confidential information, but no less than reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of our Confidential Information. You promise not to disclose, publish, or disseminate any Confidential Information to any third party, unless we don’t otherwise prohibit or restrict such disclosure (for example, you might be part of a QuoDeck-organized group discussion about a private Beta Preview feature).
Exceptions. Confidential Information will not include information that is: (a) or becomes publicly available without breach of this Agreement through no act or inaction on your part (such as when a private Beta Preview becomes a public Beta Preview); (b) known to you before we disclose it to you; (c) independently developed by you without breach of any confidentiality obligation to us or any third party; or (d) disclosed with permission from QuoDeck. You will not violate the terms of this Agreement if you are required to disclose Confidential Information pursuant to operation of law, provided QuoDeck has been given reasonable advance written notice to object, unless prohibited by law.
We’re always trying to improve of products and services, and your feedback as a Beta Preview user will help us do that. If you choose to give us any ideas, know-how, algorithms, code contributions, suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or any other feedback for our products or services (collectively, “Feedback”), you acknowledge and agree that QuoDeck will have a royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide, transferable, sub-licensable, irrevocable and perpetual license to implement, use, modify, commercially exploit and/or incorporate the Feedback into our products, services, and documentation.
