Communication with Company.
During Your participation in the Program, Company or a Vendor may contact you by email, text, or telephone. Any texts sent to You by Company will be for informational purposes only and related to Your participation in the Program. For example, Company may remind you of a scheduled Program appointment by sending You a text message. By providing Your telephone number below, You consent to Company sending you texts in connection with the Program. You may request Company to stop contacting you at any time by replying to Company’s email or text with your request to stop these communications. If contacted by telephone, You may verbally request Company to cease communications with You. If you have provided Your email address or any other information to Glu not in connection with the Program and You wish to stop receiving emails, submit your request by email to email@example.com.
During Your participation in the Program, You may receive information in tangible or intangible form relating to and/or including: any released or unreleased Company Product(s) (including, without limitation, any product names, titles, designs, ideas, concepts, scripts, and schedules), the marketing or promotion of any Company Product or Company’s business policies or practices, and information received from others that Company is obligated to treat as confidential (collectively, the “Confidential Information”). Further examples of Confidential Information include, but are not limited to, information relating to the development or distribution of released or unreleased versions of a Company Product, technologies and/or services, and any other non-public information disclosed by Company. You agree (a) to hold all Confidential Information in trust and confidence, (b) to treat the Confidential Information with the same degree of care as You treat Your own confidential and proprietary information, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, to prevent the use, sharing, dissemination or publication of the Confidential Information by anyone else, (c) to refrain from reverse engineering, decompiling or disassembling any software code and/or hardware devices disclosed by or otherwise provided by Company to You, (d) to use the Confidential Information solely as necessary to participate in the Program, and (e) to notify Company immediately on discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information to or by anyone else or any other breach of this Agreement by You. In the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information, You will cooperate with Company in every reasonable way to help Company regain possession of the Confidential Information and prevent its further use or disclosure. The Confidential Information may be considered material, non-public information under federal and/or state securities laws, and You could be found to be in violation thereof if You take advantage of the Confidential Information by (i) trading in Company securities, or (ii) furnishing information to others in connection with the trading of such securities.
During the Program, You may from time to time provide to Company or a Vendor suggestions, comments, ideas or other information regarding Confidential Information or Company Product(s) (“Feedback”). All Feedback is Company property, and You hereby assign all rights, title and interest in and to Feedback to Company. You shall not assert any rights of any kind in or to the Feedback. Company is free to use, disclose, reproduce, distribute, license or otherwise exploit in perpetuity any Feedback You provide as it sees fit, entirely without restriction or payment of any kind to You.
You understand that Your participation in the Program is strictly and entirely voluntary. Depending on the duration and extent of Your participation, Company may, but is not obligated to, provide non-cash compensation in the form of gift cards and/or rewards within Company Product(s) (i.e., in-game rewards). However, in the event Your participation is unsuccessful or incomplete in any respect, Company is not obligated to provide any compensation to You; also, compensation may not be awarded depending on the type of study. Either You or Company may terminate Your participation in the Program at any time. Company may terminate the Agreement by email at the email address You provide below. You may terminate this Agreement by sending an email to Company at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This Agreement, together with the Program FAQs, sets forth the entire agreement with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements between Company and You concerning such subject matter, whether written or oral. All sections of this Agreement except Sections 1, 2, 6 and 7 will survive any termination of this Agreement. Any modifications to this Agreement must be made in writing and signed by both parties. Any failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision.

You may not assign this Agreement or any of the rights granted in it. Monetary damages may not be a sufficient remedy for unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information. As such, Company is entitled, without waiving any other rights or remedies, to such injunctive or other equitable relief against You or others in breach of this Agreement as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction. This Agreement and all matters arising out of or relating to it shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to its principles of conflicts of law, and federal laws as applicable.
