Terms and Conditions
Welcome to the Quoala website, mobile application, and proprietary software that connects individual employees (as used herein, “Employees”) with their employers and provides a centralized anonymized system for all matters relating to feedback about the workplace (collectively, the “Service”). The Service enables registered companies and their account administrators (“Company” or “Administrator”) to collect and view all matters relating to feedback in one centralized Service for purposes of facilitating constructive and anonymized communication and improving the workplace for employers and employees. These Terms apply to any user of the Service, whether as an Employee, Company or Administrator, or other users of Quoala (any such user, “you”).
Quoala may modify the Terms from time to time, and each modification will be effective when it is posted on the Service. We will notify you of substantive modifications to these Terms the first time you access the Service following any such modification, and you agree to be bound to any changes to the Terms through your continued use of the Service.
You warrant that you are either (a) an authorized administrator of a legitimate legal entity, or (b) an individual either more than 18 years of age, an emancipated minor, or otherwise possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the Terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms. In any case, you affirm to be over the age of 13, as the Services are not intended for children under 13.

Guidelines, Rights, and Remedies
Feedback Ownership and License to Use
Each User acknowledges and agrees that:
(a) all information, data, text, vocal recordings, sound, or other materials the User or any third party (service provider, contractor, or other) authorized by the User uploads, collects, communicates, or transmits using the Services are the sole responsibility of the applicable User;
(b) the User owns or has the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorizes Quoala to collect and process the feedback the applicable User provides to the Service in accordance with these Terms.
Any feedback uploaded to the Service is processed by the Service using our proprietary AI tool and converted into meaningful insights we call “Potential Insight Packets,” or PIPs. We will not share raw transcripts of feedback with the Company. We will only share aggregated PIPs with the Company after we have received and processed feedback from a requisite minimum number of Employees and aggregated and anonymized such feedback into aggregated PIP reports. Any such feedback is only visible to the Company on an anonymized, aggregated basis or as expressly authorized by the Employee or as necessary for us to provide the Services in accordance with these Terms. Quoala reserves the right to purge any feedback from its databases at any time and from time to time without notice in accordance with its document retention policies. In addition, Quoala may disable a User’s account and access to use the Services and Quoala may recover any losses, damages, costs or expenses incurred by Quoala resulting from or arising out of a User’s non-compliance with any provision of these Terms.
By submitting ideas, suggestions, documents, and/or proposals ("Contributions") to Quoala through its feedback tools, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) your Contributions do not contain confidential or proprietary information; (b) Quoala is not under any obligation of confidentiality, express or implied, with respect to the Contributions; (c) Quoala shall be entitled to use or disclose (or choose not to use or disclose) such Contributions for any purpose, in any way, in any media worldwide; (d) Quoala may have something similar to the Contributions already under consideration or in development; (e) your Contributions automatically become the property of Quoala without any obligation of Quoala to you; and (f) you are not entitled to any compensation or reimbursement of any kind from Quoala under any circumstances.
