Terms of Use

Agreement to Terms of Use

Please read through these Terms of Use before becoming an extinction fighter with Edge Pledge.

We have tried to keep our Terms of Use easy to understand. Although we have tried our best to do this, in some parts our Terms of Use may still read like a legal contract. There's a good reason for this. Our Terms of Use do form a legally binding contract between you and Edge Pledge. Please read them carefully.

By accessing the Edge Pledge Website (“Website”) or Edge Pledge Application (“Application”) (referred to together in this document as "Website/Application"), you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use and Edge Pledge's privacy policy located here (https://www.edgepledge.com/privacy) as amended from time to time ("Privacy Policy").

If you don’t agree with the Terms of Use, you must not use our Website/Application.

Edge Pledge reserves the right to change these Terms of Use at any time. Such changes will be effective immediately upon posting to the Website/Application. It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Use periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Website/Application will be deemed to be your acceptance of any amendments to these Terms of Use.

To receive a copy of these Terms of Use, please email us at sam@edgepledge.com.

The Edge Pledge experience

Before living happily ever after, the hero has to confront fiery dragons and wicked warlocks in the course of a quest. The joy is in the journey; the challenge taken. You are the hero and we are your trusty steed.

At Edge Pledge we don’t want to leave these experiences up to chance.

We want you to experience deep enjoyment that is long cherished.

We want you to talk about your experience, come back again for more challenges and encourage others.

By setting challenges for yourself and others we believe you will experience enjoyment, a moving forward in life and a sense of novelty and accomplishment.

We want you to complete life affirming challenges which make you feel strong, alert, in effortless control and at the peak of your abilities.

Be a great person

We want you to be a great person when you’re on our Website/Application and preparing for, completing and celebrating your challenges.

To do this, we have prepared some principles to guide you:
● We only support challenges and experiences that are life giving and positive.
● Nominate challenges unto others as you would nominate challenges unto yourself.
● Be super positive, encouraging and also know how to have a laugh.
● We don’t support, and you must not engage in or nominate, challenges that:
− may possibly lead to death, injury, pain or suffering;
− may possibly cause material harm to the environment;
− may possibly cause material harm to Australia’s engendered native wildlife;
− may possibly constitute a breach of law in any Australian state or territory;
− may possibly disrespect Indigenous Australians as the traditional custodians of the environment

If you are under 18 years of age at the date of using the Website/Application, you must have a parent's or legal guardian's consent to do so.
