5. Limited License
FoxTalk Ltd grants you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use the site (the "License"). The license is subject to your compliance with the terms of this agreement. You agree not to resell or make available the site to any other person.
To avoid any doubt, you will be liable and bound by any unauthorized use of the site, in violation of this section.
The license granted hereunder shall terminate if you fail to comply with any term or condition of this agreement and all rules and guidelines for each service. You agree that FoxTalk Ltd, in its sole discretion and with or without notice, may terminate your access to all or parts of the services, close tasks and remove and discard any information or content within a this service.
This site may offer links to other websites that are provided or controlled by third parties. Such link to a site or sites is neither an endorsement or an approval nor a sponsorship or an affiliation to such site, its owners or its suppliers. FoxTalk Ltd recommends you make sure you understand the risks associated with the use of such sites before retrieving, using or purchasing via the Internet.
Links to these sites are provided solely for your convenience and you agree not to hold FoxTalk Ltd responsible for any loss or damage due to the use or reliance on any content, products or services available on other sites.
When you create a task the payment you make to offer a reward for that task includes a site fee of 1% (also called listing fee). This site fee is collected for the service of displaying the task on this site for a maximum of 40 days.
If after 40 days noone attempted to submit a solution for your task the reward will be paid back to you minus the listing fee and minus a miner fee which is used to send the amount back to you.
If you cancel the task before the end of the 40 days period the 1% listing fee still applies but lazyfox.io will usually pay this listing fee back to you if (and only if) no user applied for this task yet as a non-binding act of goodwill.
You are aware that in conflict situations a variable part of the task's reward will be paid to other users who vote on the validity of the solution.
The maximum percentage of possible fees for such a scenario will be displayed to the task creator during task creation and after the task's creation for everyone in the task view as a "notary fee".
If one or some of your tasks or your behavior violates the terms written in this agreement (see section 8. and 9.) lazyfox.io reserves the right to apply a contractual penalty amounting to 20% of your created task's rewards before canceling them.
8. Prohibited Tasks & Task Cancellation
FoxTalk Ltd reserves the right to cancel any task at any time. The fee paid to list the task on this site may be refunded back to the creating user upon cancelling, but FoxTalk Ltd reserves the right to not refund the fee in case (but not limited to when) it contains prohibited content such as described in the following.
Prohibited task are:
- tasks containing content that is offensive and/or promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual
- tasks that threaten, harass or advocate harassment of another person (this includes "doxing")
- tasks that exploit people in a sexual or violent manner
- tasks that include a photograph or any other personal information of another person without that person's consent
- tasks that promote an illegal or unauthorized copy of another person's copyrighted work, such as providing pirated music, movies or computer programs or links to them, or providing information to circumvent manufacture-installed copy-protect devices
- tasks that involve the transmission of "junk mail", "chain letters", or unsolicited mass mailing, instant messaging, "spimming" or "spamming"
- tasks that involve any manipulation of other social media or reputation platforms
- tasks that further or promote any criminal activity or enterprise or provide instructional information about illegal activities including, but not limited to making or buying illegal weapons, violating someone's privacy, or providing or creating computer viruses
All tasks that imply/expect a solution from another user that contains any of the above points are also prohibited.
9. Prohibited Behavior
This site aims to be an open community of people helping each other. The following behavior will in our opinion not lead to this desired outcome and is therby prohibited:
- the creation of multiple accounts per person
- the creation (spamming) of multiple very similar tasks. This will be judged on a case by case basis but as a rule of thumb: do not create the same task more than 3 times while noone started solving it. After a task has a solving user you are always free to recreate it.
- creating tasks with the main purpose of gaining reputation: Of course gaining reputation is a legitimate goal on this platform but it is prohibited to create fake tasks with no actual intend to receive a meaningful solution just for the sake of gaining reputation.
If we think that your tasks were created for that purpose we reserve the right to reduce your reputation or in extreme cases ban your account. To make it possible for lazyfox.io to detect such cases it is required that solutions are available for at least 3 months after the task was archived.
That means if an answer contains external links to e.g. file uploads, these file uploads must be available for at least 3 months after the task was archived or lazyfox.io may assume that they do not actually contain any valid solution.
As the gained reputation scales linearly with the task's reward amount tasks with high rewards will be judged more critically regarding this. You should for example not be too concerned with creating "not so meaningful" tasks in a reward range of $0.10 - $10 as long as you do not spam them.
But tasks with e.g. rewards of $200 might be examined more closely for reputation farming attempts as they reward task participants with more reputation. Unless in extreme cases users will typically be warned before any action is taken.
10. Conflict Resolution
Upon submission of a task solution the task's creator has the choice to accept or not accept the given solution. You agree that when you created a task and neither accept or reject a given solution within 7 days or more then it can be accepted automatically on your behalf by the site. In the case of you discarding the task's solution a conflict resolution mechanism will be triggered. During that conflict resolution other users of this site will state whether they deem the task's solution acceptable or not. These users are sometimes called notaries on this site.
You understand that these decisions of other users merely act as a recommendation to this site on how to decide what to do with the received payment. You agree that in its sole discretion this site can decide to either pay the reward back to the creator or solver or (partially) to any other user involved with the task as a notary or in cases of a task that is prohibited according to this agreement apply the contractual penalty and only pay out the remainder.
You also understand that the default behavior will be that this site follows the recommendation of the deciding users. You have no right to further challenge the final decision and have to accept it regardless of whether or not the decision could objectively be deemed correct/sufficient. You can start a task investigation in extreme cases which will still not change the outcome of the decision but might have consequences for users participating in that decision.
When you are taking part in a conflict resolution as a deciding user be aware that while some decisions might be subjective lazyfox.io expects from you to not purposefully make bad decisions in bad faith. Additionally if you were randomly invited to vote on the validity of a task's solution you are not allowed to collude (this includes all forms of communication) in any way with other randomly invited users. This site reserves the right to reduce the reputation of users in such cases or even delete their accounts.
11. Account Security
You understand that if you lose control over your account by either not being able to provide a correct password or someone else changing your password for an account that you did not secure there will be no possibility for you to recover that account.
You agree to act responsibly and secure your account by providing a signed message with your payout address' private key if your account is of greater importance to you.
You understand that as soon as you secured your account your ability to control that account ultimately relies on your ability to control the private key of your account's payout address and noone else's ability to change that payout address by having access to this private key too.
You understand and agree that lazyfox.io will make no exceptions to recover accounts compromised due to lost control of the users private key or password. You are responsible to backup and appropriately secure the information needed to access your account (including your password and more importantly your payout address' private key).
You understand and agree that the account's password can be reset by providing a message signed with the account's payout address' private key.
To participate in this site's acitivties you'll have to provide a Bitcoin Cash payout address. FoxTalk Ltd will use this payout address to make payments to you. You understand that payments to this address could happen at any time, even after you switched to a new payout address (e.g. could but does not have to happen for tasks that were created before you changed that address).
You agree that the payout address must be one to which's private keys you have exclusive access to. Do not use addresses such as an exchange deposit address that you do not control. You are also aware and agree that when you sign up via signature (for example but not limited to Badgerwallet) your payout address will be set to the address signing the signature and all the rules stated to payout addresses within this agreement apply to it.

If due to downtime you're not able to submit a task's solution on time this is a risk that solely lies on you. It is your responsiblity to mitigate this risk by submitting solutions ahead of the time they're due. When creating a task you agree that FoxTalk Ltd might add bonus solving time at its sole discretion for cases (but not limited to) where the site had (significant) down times.
