Please make sure to review the new Terms of Service before the effective date.
Latest revision: July 1st, 2017
WinMiner is an intermediate service and software (“Service”) which aims at rewarding owners of computers and processing power systems (“Computer Owners”) for their unused computing power by matching computing power tasks assigned by third parties (“Task”) and their payouts to such Computer Owners.
WinMiner runs each Task on its own computing farm testing its requirements and payout before running it on Computer Owners systems. The list of Tasks used by WinMiner is detailed at in the settings section of the WinMiner software. While WinMiner cannot take responsibility for the Tasks, it does NOT install on computers of Computer Owners any Tasks that were found by WinMiner during the testing stage to act maliciously. Pursuant to these Terms, Computer Owner will be compensated for using the Service based on the output that was generated by the Task from his/her personal computer.
You must be at least  years of age in order to use the Service and by using the Service you confirm that you comply with this requirement.
You agree to provide WinMiner with full and accurate information including but not limited to, personal, payment, and system information as may be required by WinMiner (collectively, “Account Information”).
If any information provided by you, at any time, is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, WinMiner has the right to terminate your use of the Service and to not make any accrued, current or future payments to you pursuant to or in connection with the Service. You acknowledge and agree that you must: (a) provide for your own access to the World Wide Web and pay any service fees and telephone charges associated with such access, and (b) provide all equipment necessary for you to make such connection to the World Wide Web. By using the Service, you agree that use of the Service is entirely at your own risk.
By agreeing to these Terms, you are stating that you have the necessary authority over the resources you are committing to the Service. If it is determined by your employer, your institution or WinMiner, that you did not have such authority, WinMiner may discontinue your use of the Service, in addition to any remedy available to it by law.
WinMiner reserves the right to withhold or cancel any and all payments hereunder if there is evidence or suspicion of fraud, material misstatements or omissions in any application, or if there is insufficient or incorrect information which makes it commercially impracticable to complete the payment transaction, or for any other reason which at our sole discretion deem significant enough to warrant such a cancellation of payment.
WinMiner reserves the right to cancel payments and/or deactivate accounts that are discovered to be false, inaccurate or fraudulent in any way, or which are based on or include false, inaccurate or fraudulent Account Information. By furnishing Account Information to WinMiner, you expressly authorize WinMiner (and its agents) to use such Account Information in accordance with WinMiner’s applicable policies. You expressly represent and warrant to WinMiner (and its agents) that you have the right to provide all such Account Information to WinMiner. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that WinMiner may terminate your use of the Service without prior notice if you engage in any conduct or activities that WinMiner at its sole discretion believes violate any of these Terms, violate the rights of WinMiner, or is otherwise inappropriate for continued use of the Service. In such event, you further acknowledge and agree that WinMiner may terminate any and all accrued, current and future payment obligations to you in connection with the Service.
Furthermore, WinMiner may choose to terminate and discontinue the Service for you or in general, at any time, in its sole discretion.
