General Registration & Participation Requirements
- Registration is open to all residents (those aged 18+ years old or 13+ years old with parental consent).
- Notification with respect to Children's Privacy (individuals user 13 years old): In response to concerns about protecting children's privacy online, Congress enacted the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), which sets forth rules and procedures governing the ways in which web sites may collect, use and disclose any personal information for children under the age of 13. In accordance with the company policy and COPPA regulations, we DO NOT: request or knowingly collect personally identifiable information online or offline contact information from users under 13 years of age; or knowingly use or share personal information from those under 13 years of age with third parties.
- Only one account per member is allowed. Multiple accounts per household are allowed. You are welcome to refer your family, friends, and others; but cannot refer yourself. Members found to have duplicate accounts will have their accounts closed and forfeit any points earned. Only the account owner may use their account. No account can be shared.
- You must provide accurate, truthful, and valid information during all stages of membership. This applies to each and every interaction with instaGC staff members, instaGC website, and/or instaGC advertisers or partners, including, but not limited to: personal information, location, messages, emails, third-party signup information, and reward cashouts. Members found to have registered with or updated profile with fake/invalid information may have a point deduction applied.
- You may not use a proxy or otherwise attempt to mask or reroute connection. Using a proxy/VPN is not permitted.
- Harassment or bullying of anyone is not allowed. Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.
- You agree to not exploit, distribute, or publicly inform other members of any error, miscue, or bug that gives an unintended advantage; violate any applicable laws or regulations; promote or encourage any illegal activity including, but not limited to, hacking, cracking or distribution of counterfeit software, bots, cheats, or hacks for the Services.
- You may have your account cancelled by using the Support System. If you cancel your account, you will forfeit all rewards in your account. In addition, any pending offer credits and/or requested/pending payments will be removed and forfeited. If you decide to come back and want to participate, your cancelled account would be reopened.
General Offer Requirements & Terms
- You must complete your own offers. You must use your own and valid information (no initials) and at no time should you use someone elses information. All of the information you enter while attempting an offer must be 100% valid and truthful. Anyone using fraudulent information will have their account suspended and points removed.
- All email addresses created must be real/valid and cannot be a disposable/temporary email address. You do not have to use the same email address as registered with on the site in order to complete offers. If an offer requires you to confirm email address, it must be confirmed. Please note that not all offers may state to confirm email address while it still needs to be confirmed to receive credit.
- Points from any offer, survey, or task valued at 225+ points are frozen for an estimated time frame of 2-5+ days. Points from credit card (CC), shopping, or trial offers are frozen for an estimated time frame of 7-14+ days. You may not cancel a CC/trial offer as soon as credit is received. Depending on the length of the trial offer, you should test/try it out within that time frame. The frozen point process begins once an offer has been credited to your account. Points are released at instaGC's discretion.
- Unless otherwise stated, offers are available for first-time customers only. You will not be credited for completing an offer if you have completed it in the past, through instaGC, any other website, completion of or participation in offers, interactions with advertisers, or with the advertiser directly. If you do attempt and receive credit for the same offer, your credit will be removed and returned back to the advertiser.
- You should only attempt/complete offers that you are genuinely interested in as not all offers are guaranteed to credit. In addition, if an offer redirects to another site that has nothing to do with the name or description of the offer, it is recommended to not attempt that offer as it is most likely expired, but not yet removed from the system, as no credit would be given for completing it.
- For CC/purchase/trial offers - some advertisers have fraud preventive measures in place to not have offers credit where a gift/prepaid card is used. While the transaction may go through on their side and money spent from the gift/prepaid card, credit may not be given. Complete CC/purchase/trial offers at your own discretion.
- instaGC does not control offer crediting. The tracking and crediting of offer completions is done via cookies and tracking pixels that report to the advertising agencies, not instaGC. You should ensure that your web browser is set to allow all cookies in order to be properly credited for offers that you attempt. In addition, you should ensure your anti-virus and/or anti-spyware software does not automatically override your web browser's cookie settings. You should only attempt/complete offers that you are genuinely interested in as not all offers are guaranteed to credit. There is no guarantee that a member will receive credit for an offer attempt. You may re-attempt an offer, at a later time, if no credit is given initially. In addition, if an offer redirects to another site that has nothing to do with the name or description of the offer, it is recommended to not attempt that offer. In those instances the offer is likely capped, expired, or unavailable. Attempts made on redirecting offers would result in no credit for completing it. instaGC cannot be held responsible for owing payment to any member for any offer not credited.
- In cases of no credit for an offer attempted, at no time should you contact instaGC's direct advertisers. However, you may contact the specific third-party area from where an offer was attempted (example: Matomy Money, Peanut Labs, Radium One) to inquire about a missing credit. Depending on the circumstance involved, you may be blocked from certain offer walls due to our discretion.
- Non-Use and Nondisclosure. Information and content made available to you in the Services may contain trade secrets or other confidential or proprietary information of suppliers or licensors. You must hold in strict confidence and not disclose to any other person any information and content that you access or learn in connection with your participation in any survey, project, questionnaire, or other market research activity related to the Services. You must not use any such information or content for any purpose other than your participation in the Services in accordance with this Agreement. You hereby agree to notify instaGC immediately if you learn of or suspect any use or disclosure of, or access to, any such information or content other than as specifically authorized in this Agreement.
