Warning, Carrot is in alpha! Share your feedback here.
Thank you for using our products and services (“Services”). These are the Terms and Conditions of Use ("Terms") that apply between you and BTC Inc., referred to as "Carrot" or "Company" or "we" or “us” or “our”. You can accept these Terms by: (1) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms where this option is made available to you by Carrot for any Service; or (2) actually using the Services. Please read the Terms carefully -- if you do not agree to these Terms, do not access or use the Services. If you use our Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these Terms on behalf of your organization and represent that you have the authority to do so.
Some of our Services may require additional terms or product requirements (e.g. age requirements). We will make additional terms available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms will become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
We may modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. Carrot will provide notice of changes to the Terms by displaying notices or links to notices through the Services (for example, on this page). Your continued use of the Services will confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the modified Terms, you should discontinue your use of the Services. Please look at the Terms regularly. In these Terms, the the words “including” and “include” mean “including, but not limited to.”
Note that these Terms contain a mandatory arbitration provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis and limits the remedies available to you in the event of certain disputes. Please review the arbitration agreement carefully. By accepting these Terms, you expressly acknowledge that you have read and understand the arbitration agreement.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH CARROT AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Carrot agree: (a) to waive your and Carrot’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, the Services, or the Content resolved in a court; and (b) to waive your and Carrot’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Carrot agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
You and Carrot agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, or the Content is personal to you and Carrot and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and Carrot agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and Carrot agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
You and Carrot agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this arbitration agreement shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
You and Carrot agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within 30 days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to Carrot shall be sent [email protected] Your notice must include: (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Carrot registration and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted; (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with these Terms and will include: (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute; (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and Carrot cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within 30 days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or Carrot may, as appropriate and in accordance with this arbitration agreement, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for above, file a claim in court.
Except for Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Carrot agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or Carrot within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and Carrot will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and Carrot agree that: (a) any arbitration will occur in Davidson County, Tennessee; (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference; and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Tennessee and the United States, respectively, sitting in Davidson County, Tennessee, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have: (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable; and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
The Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either: (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the Rules of JAMS; or (b) waive your opportunity to read the Rules of JAMS and any claim that the Rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Dispute Resolution section by writing to: [email protected] In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with the provisions regarding governing law and venue below.

We have put in a great deal of effort to deliver you Services that we hope you find valuable, but there are certain things we can’t promise about them. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND ANY CONTENT IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, NEITHER CARROT NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS ("CARROT PARTIES”) MAKE ANY WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES OR CONTENT. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” CARROT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT: (1) THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR VIRUS-FREE; (2) THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE ACCURATE OR MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; OR (3) ANY DEFECTS IN THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL BE CORRECTED. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE CARROT PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU FOR ANY: (1) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS OR PROFITS; (2) FINANCIAL LOSSES; OR (3) INDIRECT, SPECIAL CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. THIS WILL BE WHETHER OR NOT THE CARROT PARTIES HAVE BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF CARROT PARTIES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING ACCOUNT BALANCES AND THE CARROT TASKS) OR CONTENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US IN A CENTRALLY CONTROLLED GOVERNMENT-ISSUED CURRENCY TO USE OUR SERVICES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS, NOTHING IN THESE TERMS EXCLUDES OR LIMITS LIABILITY FOR FRAUD, FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION, OR FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
These Terms and your access to and use of the Services will be governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee, U.S.A., without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Tennessee or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of Tennessee and the United States, respectively, sitting in Davidson County, Tennessee.
You can stop using our Services at any time (though we hope you don’t!). Our Services are constantly being updated, and you should revisit these Terms regularly. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate users, reclaim Carrot account usernames without any liability to you, or change, suspend, discontinue or disable access to the Services at any time and without notice at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to terminate your access and use of the Services if you violate these Terms or any policies referenced herein, or if you use the Services in a way that we reasonably believe creates legal liability for us.
If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. Carrot’s failure to enforce a provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms to anyone else, and any such attempt will be void. All of our rights under these Terms are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisitions, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. These Terms control the relationship between yourself and Carrot. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.
The relationship between a User and Company under these Terms is solely that of independent contracting parties. User and its subcontractors are not employees of Company, and will not be entitled to any rights or benefits provided to Company employees, waive any right to them, and promise never to claim them. User has no authority to bind Company and Contractor agrees to not hold itself as an employee, agent, or authorized representative of Company. USER REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS THAT USER: (1) HAS FULL POWER AND AUTHORITY TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND PERFORM OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER; (2) IS AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD; AND (3) WILL COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS IN PERFORMING TASKS UNDER THESE TERMS.
If User undertakes to perform a Task via Company’s Services, User acknowledges and agrees that: (1) User retains the sole right to determine the manner in which a Task is performed, including where a Task is performed, and when a Task is performed; (2) User will provide all devices and other materials that are necessary to complete the Task, and be responsible for the acquisition, cost and maintenance of such devices and materials; and (3) User will not direct or control User generally or in User performance under these Terms or of a specific Task. User may delegate or subcontract any of its obligations under this Schedule. User will remain liable for all subcontracted obligations and all acts or omissions of its subcontractors. User agrees that it will not use scripts, robots, or other automated methods to complete Tasks or query Company's Services.
User retains sole discretion on whether to perform, or not perform, any Tasks that Company makes available to User via the Services or platform. User further acknowledges that: (a) User may engage in any other occupation or business; and (b) Company has no right to restrict User from engaging in any other occupation or business activity.
Company will pay User via increasing User's account balance for the payment amount displayed in each Task received by User upon full completion of the Task (the "User Payment”). The User Payment is a transaction between User and Company for User’s completion of a Task received through Company’s platform. Contractor acknowledges and agrees that the User Payment is the only payment that User will receive in connection with a completed Task.
User is responsible and required to complete all tax registration obligations and calculate all tax liabilities arising from User’s completion of Tasks via Company’s Services. Upon Company’s reasonable request, User agrees to provide all relevant tax information in connection with performing tasks via Company’s Services.
User agrees that any work product created during the performance and completion of a Task is deemed a “work made for hire” for the benefit of Company to the extent permitted by applicable law. To the extent any such rights do not vest in Company under applicable law, User hereby assigns or exclusively grants (without the right to any compensation) all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, to such work product to Company.
