Terms of Service
By signing up and actively using the PTCShare program, you agree to all terms and conditions set forth in this membership agreement. PTCShare may, at any time, choose to edit, add and/or delete portions of this agreement and impose changes without prior notification of its members. We will endeavor to send out a notice to all our members regarding the new terms and/or terms which have changed. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate your PTCShare account. Your continued participation in PTCShare following our posting of a change in policy notice or new agreement on our site will constitute your binding acceptance to the change. You agree and acknowledge that you will review this agreement on a regular basis and you further agree that upon logging in and viewing the site you are deemed to have reviewed and accepted the latest revisions/modifications to this membership agreement.
    • You must be 16 years of age or older to participate in PTCShare. PTCShare is open to US and International members and is void where prohibited by local governing laws.
    • You may not sign-up multiple times with different email addresses. Your computer must not be shared with another individual that has an existing PTCShare account. PTCShare is limited to one account per household.
    • You will use your username / password combination to access your account and it is your responsibility to keep this information confidential. You may change this information by logging into your account and following the "My Account" link. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your PTCShare account including authorization by you to any third party individual who may use your account. Any unauthorized access to your account should be reported immediately.
    • Should PTCShare detect any instances of fraud, system abuse, defamation, harassment, foul language, inappropriate conduct in our forum or helpdesk or any type of account activity deemed to be inappropriate or illegal in the sole discretion of PTCShare, these actions may result in member termination and possible legal action as well as forfeiture of any earned commissions not yet disbursed to you from PTCShare. In the event that you have taken inappropriate actions in attempting to cheat, steal, lie or any action that would violate the PTCShare User Agreement or the User Agreement of any 3rd party company that PTCShare has a partnership agreement with, PTCShare can at it's own discretion turn over any and all evidence, information, personal data and logs to said 3rd party for possible prosecution or investigation.
    • Inactive Account Maintenance Fees: Up to $0.001 shall be deducted, once each server day, from each cash balance you maintain at PTCShare, if the user is considered inactive (not viewed any ads for 14 days). Maintenance fees will continue until each balance is zeroed. If you are holding funds in both your Earnings Balance and PerfectMoney balance for example, then a separate maintenance fee shall apply to each.
    1. Inactivity:
      • Only 'active' accounts shall be ellegible to receive paid advertisements. If your account should go to inactive status, you will not receive any further paid advertisements until such time that you click on an activation ad. Which will credit your account with 7days of 'active' status. You can accumulate up to a maximum of 21days of ‘Active Status’ in advance. Any additional activation ads clicked from that point onwards, will just reset your Active Status to 21days. Any account balances and Bonus Ad Points shall remain in-tact during any period of inactivity. Users can re-activate their account at any time, simply by clicking on an activation ad.
      • Paid Advertisements are issued to active user accounts for a limited period of 18hours. If the user does not interact with the advertisement in that time, it shall be 'recycled' and re-issued to another user. Thereby if you do not click on the advertisements issued to you within the stated time frame, you shall forfeit any earning potential held therein. Additionally, you will forfeit the quantity of "Bonus Ad Points" that are consumed by the delivery of that ad to your account, irrelevant of whether you interact with the ad or not. Furthermore, any ads you fail to interact with will count towards the ad delivery quota guaranteed by the purchase of any "Recycler Pro Upgrades".
    2. Bonus Ad Points:
      • Bonus ad points are required to take delivery of "Bonus Paid Ads". Each Bonus Ad Point your account holds entitles you to receive up to $0.0005 worth of paid advertisements, as soon as any are available to be issued. With each bonus ad issued to your account, irrelevant of whether you interact with it or not, the corresponding quantity of Bonus Ad Points will be deducted from your Bonus Ad Points balance. Once this balance reaches zero, you will no longer be ellegible to receive any further paid ads. Furthermore, the total quantity of Bonus Ad Points held within your account serves as a limit to the maximum value paid advertisements your account can receive. So if there are paid ads in circulation that are greater in value than the total of your available Bonus Ad Points balance. Then your account shall not be ellegible to receive them until such time that you increase your Bonus Ad Points balance.
    3. Bonus Ad Points Daily Tax:
      • Inactive accounts (not viewed any ads for 14 days), shall incur a bonus ad point tax, and have their BAP balances reduced by up to 100 BAP each server day, until their accounts are zeroed. This is designed to mop up inactive accounts, and to balance the sustainability of the business at scale; specifically regarding the BAP that is given away for 'free' via our daily BAP Ads.
    4. Recycler Pro Upgrades
      • PTCShare offers a non-refundable Premium Membership upgrade for the cost of $0.05. Upgraded, active users, with sufficient Bonus Ad Points, shall receive priority in receiving recycled paid ads over non upgraded, active users, with sufficient Bonus Ad Points. This paid upgrade remains valid until such time that a total of at least $1.00 worth of "recycled ads" have been delivered to your account. At which point you can purchase a new upgrade to repeat the process. Recycler pro upgrades only guarantee delivery of the paid ads to your account, if you don't interact with them within 18hours of each ad being issued to your account, then you will not gain any financial benefit from purchasing this upgrade option. There is no time limit for the amount of time it may take to deliver the $1 worth of ads to your account.
    5. Super User Upgrades:
      • Users have the option to buy an upgrade for their account, that will give their account priority in receiving the 10x 1% value ads that are created with each new bulk ad campaign purchased that server day. These 10 x 1% ads are issued at the end of the server day, for all purchases made during the previous day. Ads are issued at random between all currently active Super User upgraded accounts, provided those accounts are both active and have sufficient Bonus Ad Points to receive the paid ads.
    6. There are two upgrade options:
      • $2.99 upgrade will deliver the 10x 1% ads created with all ad purchases between $1 and $50.
      • $19.99 upgrade will deliver the 10x 1% ads created for all ad purchases $50+.
      • Upgrades last 7days. In the event that your upgrade doesn't deliver at least $2.99 or $19.99 worth of paid ads respectively, your upgrade will automatically extend for an additional 7days. And will continue extending for 7days at a time until such time that the minimum ad quota is delivered. There is no maximum amount of ads this upgrade can deliver. By upgrading your account to super user, this will override your ad filter for any 1% ads that target your account.
    7. Ad Filter:
      • PTCShare offers users the ability to purchase a lifetime upgrade for their account in the form of an ad filter. This will block low value ads from potentially flooding your account, and consuming your Bonus Ad Points unnecessarily (if you don't want to waste your time interacting with them, and subsequently leaving them to recycle). You can set the ad filter between $0 and $1. All ads of a value below your filter setting will simply not be issued to your account, with the exception of any "Micro Ad Packs" you request from your Paid Ads page, and also any '1% ads' issued to you as a result of a Super User upgrade purchased from your My Account page. Be aware that purchasing the ad filter will in no way increase the value of ads your account will receive. All it does is block any low value ads that were otherwise going to be issued to you.
    8. Ad Filter:
      • PTCShare offers users the ability to purchase a lifetime upgrade for their account in the form of an ad filter. This will block low value ads from potentially flooding your account, and consuming your Bonus Ad Points unnecessarily (if you don't want to waste your time interacting with them, and subsequently leaving them to recycle). You can set the ad filter between $0 and $1. All ads of a value below your filter setting will simply not be issued to your account, with the exception of any "Micro Ad Packs" you request from your Paid Ads page, and also any '1% ads' issued to you as a result of a Super User upgrade purchased from your My Account page. Be aware that purchasing the ad filter will in no way increase the value of ads your account will receive. All it does is block any low value ads that were otherwise going to be issued to you.
      • In order to set the ad filter above $0.01, you will require 50,000 BAP to be available in your account at the time of purchase. This is to protect users from purchasing a filter setting that is too high for their proven value. That would likely result in few / no ads ever being issued to your account. If you would like to change your ad filter setting, you can buy it again at any time, and the new setting will override any existing value. Furthermore, if you have made an error with your ad filter setting, you can contact support within 30days of your last ad filter purchase, and we will adjust the setting for you free of charge.
    9. Account Selling/Renting:
      • PTCShare does not allow you to sell or rent your account. In the event you attempt to sell or rent your account, the account will be limited with no access. PTCShare is free to join and the selling or renting of your account to make a profit from your activities here is strictly prohibited.
    10. Sponsor Changes:
      • The changing of or removing an affiliate sponsor is not permitted.
    • Nothing in this Agreement creates any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between you and PTCShare. You understand that you do not have authority to make or accept any offers or make any representations on behalf of PTCShare. You may not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that would contradict anything in this section. You are solely responsible for the reporting and payment of any taxes for money earned from PTCShare Advertisers and/or PTCShare.
    • PTCShare will not be liable for lost profits, lost business opportunities, or any other indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages arising out of or related to this Agreement or PTCShare, even if PTCShare has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Furthermore, PTCShare aggregate liability arising under this Agreement will not exceed the amount of the total fees paid or payable to you under this Agreement. The provisions of this section survive termination or expiration of the Agreement. We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the member program or any services or other items advertised through PTCShare (including, without limitation, warranties of fitness, merchantability, non-infringement, or any implied warranties arising out of a course of performance, dealing, or trade usage).

    • PTCShare may now, or hereafter from time to time, contain links to third-party web sites. We do not control, investigate, monitor or check such web sites, we are not responsible for the computer programs available from, content in or opinions expressed at such web sites, and we do not investigate, monitor or check.

If you decide to leave the site and access any third-party web site, you do so at your own risk.
    • You hereby represent and warrant to us that this member Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by you and constitutes your legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against you in accordance with its terms; and that the execution, delivery and performance by you of this member Agreement are within your legal capacity and power; have been duly authorized by all requisite action on your part; require the approval or consent of no other persons; and neither violate nor constitute a default under the provision of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree to which you are subject or which is binding upon you, or the terms of any other agreement, document or instrument applicable to you or binding upon you.
    • PTCShare may retain and use all information you provide, including but not limited to site demographics and contact and billing information. You agree that PTCShare may transfer and disclose to third parties personally identifiable information about you for the purpose of approving and enabling your participation in the program, including to third parties that reside in jurisdictions with less restrictive data laws than your own. PTCShare may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. PTCShare disclaims all responsibility, and will not be liable to you, however, for any disclosure of that information by any such third party. PTCShare may share non-personally-identifiable information about you, including site URLs, site-specific statistics and similar information collected by PTCShare, with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. In addition, you grant PTCShare the right to access, index and cache the site(s), or any portion thereof, including by automated means.
    • Members may earn by visiting the advertiser websites after they have logged into their PTCShare account. Members may also have the opportunity to earn by referring new members to PTCShare when affiliate promotions are in effect. PTCShare will announce start and end dates for any affiliate promotions offered either by email notification or notification posted on the website. Members can earn a percentage of advertising revenues collected by PTCShare.
    • Members will be paid all earnings via their method of choice, as selected from our Cashier. Each payment method has it's own minimum cashout amounts, and fees as stated. These are subject to change at any time.
    • PTCShare may without warning increase or decrease our prices for account upgrades, ad pack purchases and other advertisements. In the event that we decrease our pricing, PTCShare will not offer a refund for the difference in pricing to any member who made a purchase at the higher price.
    • You may not promote your referral links through unsolicited emailing (i.e. SPAMMING), newsgroup postings, job sites, classified ad sites or any other method of mass communication. Failure to comply will result in immediate termination of your membership with PTCShare, and may result in legal prosecution. PTCShare strictly enforces anti-Spamming laws. Spamming is a federal crime. Any member caught Spamming will not only have their account terminated immediately and lose any past, present and future earnings, but shall also be held liable for spamming as we shall cooperate with any authorities and investigations that may arise from the spamming incident. PTCShare may fine your account up to $50 per spam email or posted website that is reported to us.
    • Websites containing malicious script or code, excessive pop-ups, or viruses are prohibited. In summary, and without being exhaustive, no sites promoting the follow shall be submitted to PTCShare:
      Adult Content or Sexually Themed Material
      Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia
      Tobacco Sales
      Discriminatory Practices
      Hate / Violence Sites
      Weapons Sales
      Pharmaceutical Sales
      Illegal Downloads including movies, MP3, software etc.
      PTCShare reserves the right to reject advertisements at our sole discretion. No refunds will be issued if your ad campaign is cancelled for promoting malicious or illegal content. And a discressionary fine of up to 10,000 Bonus Ad Points may be deducted from any offending purchases.
    • All purchased "Bulk Ad" Campaigns will have their purchased visits delivered within the shortest time possible. This is unpredictable as it depends on many unknown factors, such as amount of active users, overall ads in circulation and general user activity. Ad purchases are final and non refundable. Bulk Ad Campaigns will deliver random active PTCShare users to your website ASAP. The same user may visit your website multiple times. We are not responsible for any periods of downtime with your website, and we will deliver users to a blank page if your website is not working. Users will enter a captcha at the top of the ad view page to confirm their visit. Bulk ad purchases shall add 2360 Bonus Ad Points per dollar spent, to the advertisers account. These points can unlock various rewards / additional advertising opportunities within PTCShare, for active users. But hold no fixed cash value, and cannot be redeemed directly for cash.
    • Advertisers may request corrections to their active ad campaigns, by submitting a support ticket on our 'Contact Us' page. Any attempt, whether successful or not, to chargeback an active / delivered ad campaign, shall result in an instant account ban. Forfeiting all the value in your account, prohibiting you from future ad purchases with PTCShare, and your contact information shall be added to our blacklist and shared publically in the form of a fraudulent user database.
    • Multiple registrations shall be grounds for immediate termination of all involved accounts. Registering multiple accounts from the same IP address or from the same computer also constitutes fraud. Any use of Internet bots, also known as web robots or simply bots would be ground for immediate termination of your PTCShare account. Bots are software applications that run automated tasks over the internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human editor alone. PTCShare may file charges for recovery of any earnings received from multiple registrations or any other type fraud or abuse outlined within this membership agreement. This conduct will result in the forfeiture of any PTCShare earnings you have generated. It is agreed between the member and PTCShare that determining the specific dollar amount of damages sustained to the reputation of PTCShare as a result of the fraudulent actions of either our advertisers or our members would be in some cases difficult to prove. PTCShare takes seriously our obligation to protect our advertisers to be sure they are getting the true value of their investment dollars. For that reason, any breach of this agreement would automatically result in liquidated damages of $1500 in addition to any actual damages sustained by PTCShare. PTCShare reserves the right in their discretion to suspend an account upon investigation and conclusion that a fraudulent or deceptive act is occurring or likely to occur.
    • PTCShare does not allow the use of anonymizer or proxy servers to access our system. PTCShare can at its own discretion block any member who knowingly accesses our system with an anonymizing, VPN or proxy server. We can and will suspend any account found to violate this policy. All funds in your PTCShare account are immediately forfeited if your account is suspended for violating this policy.
    • In the event that you issue a chargeback on a transaction you completed while logged into your PTCShare account, PTCShare will suspend your account. A transaction is defined as a purchase that you knowingly made for an advertisement or upgrade. PTCShare may at its discretion take you (the member who issued the chargeback) to small claims court to recover fees associated with the chargeback, including travel expenses incurred to file the necessary court paperwork. PTCShare records all user activity while you (the member) are logged in. This includes the IP address that you accessed your account from, browser, and all clicks and pages accessed during your login. This information may be used to prove you did indeed authorize the transaction(s) in question. If you wish to have your account "unsuspended" you must agree to pay the initial transaction cost plus a $20 chargeback fee. Under no circumstances will PTCShare reinstate an account that has issued a chargeback until such chargeback and initial transaction fees are paid.
