These Unity Pulse Additional Terms (“Pulse Terms”) govern your participation in and access to the Unity Pulse Platform and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and Unity. These Pulse Terms supplement and incorporate the Unity Website and Communities Additional Terms and the Unity Terms of Service (together with the Pulse Terms are the “Site Terms”).
By accessing, using, or participating in the Unity Pulse Platform, or accessing any materials or content made available to you via the Unity Pulse Platform, you agree that you understand these Site Terms and accept all terms and conditions of these Site Terms. If you do not or cannot accept these Site Terms, you may not access or participate in the Unity Pulse Platform. The Site Terms are the sole and exclusive terms applicable to your access, use, or participation in the Unity Pulse Platform. The Unity Pulse Platform is one of the Communities referred to in the Unity Terms of Service. Any capitalized terms not defined in these Pulse Terms have the same meaning as in the Site Terms.
1. UNITY PULSE PLATFORM
1.1 Platform. The Unity Pulse Platform, a Feedback rewards program, is accessible through an online software platform owned or licensed by Unity (“Platform”). You may be invited to participate in certain Activities through email and/or a Platform notification system (“Invitation”). All Invitations are sent at the sole and exclusive discretion of Unity and Unity is under no obligation to send you an Invitation. “Activities” are opportunities to provide Feedback to Unity with respect to its current and potential products and services and may include but are not limited to surveys, roundtable discussions, polls, interviews, and discussion board participation. Activities are subject to confidentiality obligations as outlined in the Confidentiality section of these Pulse Terms.
2.1. General. In addition to any restrictions set forth in the Site Terms and in these Pulse Terms, to access and participate in the Unity Pulse Platform, you represent and warrant that you (a) 18 years of age or older; and (b) Unity reserves the right to verify your identity and eligibility qualifications, at any time throughout the duration of your participation in the Unity Pulse Platform, to our complete satisfaction (by requesting photocopy of your government issued identification documents or other proof as we may require) prior to providing you with any of the benefits of the Unity Pulse Platform including but not limited to Points and rewards.
2.2. Government Officials. Government Officials may access and participate in the Unity Pulse Platform but are prohibited from redeeming any rewards through the Rewards Program. As used herein “Government Official” means any individual who is employed by a government body, regulatory agency, or any company which is owned or controlled by the government.
3. YOUR ACCOUNT
3.1. Account Creation. In order to access the Unity Pulse Platform, you must register for an “Account” on the Platform. To create an Account, you will be required to log in via your Unity ID or create one if you do not already have one. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Unity reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete.
3.2 Your Account Profile. Your Account Profile will be used by us to determine which Activities are the best fit for you so we can maximize the Invitations you qualify to receive. Your “Account Profile” will consist of your activities with Unity or its Affiliates, your responses to an initial survey after registration is completed for creation of your Account, and your responses from participation in Activities on this Platform.
3.3 Unauthorized Use. You are responsible for safeguarding your username and password. You agree not to disclose your username or password to any third party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Unity of any unauthorized use of your Account at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3.4 Inactive Accounts. Unity reserves the right to deem your Account inactive if you fail to access your Account, either by logging in or earning and redeeming Points, for one year or more. Inactive Accounts may be terminated as Unity’s sole and absolute discretion.
4. THE REWARDS PROGRAM
4.1 Program. Unity may offer a rewards program in association with completion of Activities made available through the Unity Pulse Platform (“Rewards Program”) under which you may have the opportunity to earn points (“Points”), which are redeemable for rewards (“Rewards”). In Unity’s sole and absolute discretion, Unity may (i) limit, suspend or terminate your ability to participate in the Rewards Program; and/or (ii) void points, rewards, and potential rewards you have earned or accumulated in the Rewards Program if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have not complied with the Unity Pulse Platform Terms or Site Terms. You agree to abide by the decisions of Unity with respect to your participation in the Rewards Program. Unity reserves the right to modify, suspend, or cancel all or a portion of the Rewards Program, including any points you may have accrued, at any time without prior notice to you.
4.2 Points. Points can be earned through participation in certain, but not all, Activities, as described in the Invitation. If you choose to accept an Invitation and choose to participate in and follow the instructions related to the applicable Activity, upon completion of all of the requirements of the Activity, you will receive the Points associated with that Activity, provided that Unity is able to track and validate your completion of the applicable Activity. For avoidance of doubt, Unity will not be responsible for, nor will Unity be obligated to award Points with respect to any Activity that is not properly recorded, tracked and/or deemed approved under Unity’s policies, procedures and systems. Unity reserves the right to change or limit (i) your ability to participate in Activities; (ii) the frequency of your participation; (iii) the number of Points you can earn during a given time period or for a certain Activity; (iv) the number of Points required for a particular reward. Activities and rewards may be subject to additional terms, so please be sure to review all applicable additional terms. Points may expire if unredeemed for a period of 2 years and Unity may remove such expired Points from your Account without any further obligation or compensation to you. Points awarded have no cash value.
4.3. Redemption of Points. You may redeem Points you have earned for rewards through the Platform. Rewards may be limited in number and availability. If you try to redeem Points for a reward that is determined by Unity to be unavailable, out of stock, or cannot be provided to you for some other reasons, Unity may, at its sole and absolute discretion, provide you with a reward of equal or greater value. Redeemed rewards are non-cancellable and as such, no credit, reversal, or refund of Points will be issued for any reason once Points have been redeemed. You may receive rewards via the email address provided upon Account creation or mailing address as may be requested for a particular reward. Undeliverable or unclaimed rewards may be forfeited and Points will not be refunded.
4.4. Non-Transferable. Points are non-transferable (by way of assignment, sale, transfer upon death, by operation of law, or otherwise), and are void if any such transfer is attempted.
4.5. Compliance. Unity is committed to the highest possible standards of ethics and business conduct. Any Points or Rewards provided pursuant to the Rewards Program are for bonafide participation in legitimate feedback Activities and in no way intended to improperly influence any person or company for Unity's benefit.
5. LICENSES AND OWNERSHIP
5.1. Feedback. We encourage and welcome you to provide Feedback. You may submit Feedback by emailing email@example.com and participation in Activities. You acknowledge and agree that all Feedback will be the sole and exclusive property of Unity and you hereby irrevocably assign to Unity and agree to irrevocably assign to Unity all of your right, title, and interest in and to all Feedback, including without limitation all worldwide patent, copyright, trade secret, moral and other proprietary or intellectual property rights therein. At Unity’s request and expense, you will execute documents and take such further acts as Unity may reasonably request to assist Unity to acquire, perfect, and maintain its intellectual property rights and other legal protections for the Feedback. As used in these Pulse Terms, “Feedback” means any feedback, comments, reviews, ratings, suggestions, or any content, materials, data or information that you provide to Unity, about existing and potential Unity products and services, through your access, use, and participation in the Unity Pulse Platform.
5.2. Disclaimer. Your use of other Unity software, products, or services will be subject to each of their separate terms and conditions.
5.3. Ownership of Platform and Platform Content. Unity and/or its licensors retain ownership of the Platform and all information, content, and materials made available in relation thereto (“Unity Content”), including all associated intellectual property rights. Unity reserves all rights to the Unity Content not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
5.4. Unity Name and Marks. These terms do not grant you any rights with respect to Unity’s trademarks, service marks, logos, or other designations of origin (“Trademarks”). You must use Unity’s name in compliance with our “Guidelines for Using Unity Trademarks” available at /legal/branding_trademarks (the “Guidelines”).
5.5 Representations and Warranties. You represent and warrant that (i) any Feedback provided by you to Unity by you is your original work or you obtained it in a lawful manner; and (ii) our and our sublicensees’ use and exercise of the rights and licenses granted pursuant to these Pulse Terms will not infringe or violate any rights of any third party.
To the extent any non-public information about Unity or its affiliates is shared or made available to you through your access, use, or participation in the Unity Pulse Platform, you agree that you will keep such information strictly confidential, not disclose it to any third party, and not use it for any purpose other than as permitted in the Unity Pulse Platform in accordance with these Site Terms. Your ability to participate in certain Activities may be predicated on execution of additional confidentiality agreements.

Further, your permission to use or participate in the Unity Pulse Platform will automatically terminate immediately upon any failure by you to comply with the Site Terms.
