You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, its affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of the Terms of Use or your use of the App, including, but not limited to, your User Contributions, any use of the App's content, services, and products other than as expressly authorized in the Terms of Use or your use of any information obtained from the App.

 

Arbitration, Class-Action Waiver, and Jury Waiver

Except where prohibited by applicable law:

  1. The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Terms of Use (including any alleged breach thereof), or the Service, regardless of the date of accrual and including past, pending, and future claims, shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association under the Consumer Arbitration Rules. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against Company in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction in the county in New York County, New York. Such arbitration shall be conducted by written submissions only, unless either you or Company elect to invoke the right to an oral hearing before the Arbitrator. But whether you choose arbitration or small claims court, you agree that you will not under any circumstances commence, maintain, or participate in any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding against Company.

  2. By accepting this Terms of Use, YOU GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert any claims between you and Company (except for matters that may be properly taken to a small claims court and are within such court’s jurisdiction). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING, including, without limitation, any future class actions.

  3. If you assert a claim against Company outside of small claims court, your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, and the arbitrator shall determine all claims and all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. The same is true for Company. Both you and Company are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can generally grant the relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

As you decide whether to agree to this Terms of Use, here are some important considerations:

  • Arbitration is a process of private dispute resolution that does not involve the civil courts, a civil judge or a jury. Instead, the parties’ dispute is decided by a private arbitrator selected by the parties under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration does not limit or affect the legal claims you as an individual may bring against Company. Agreeing to arbitration will only affect where those claims may be brought and how they will be resolved.

  • Arbitration is generally considered to be a more rapid dispute resolution process than the judicial system, but that is not always the case. The Arbitrator will typically determine whether Company or you will be required to pay or split the cost of any arbitration with Company, based on the circumstances presented.

  • IMPORTANT: THERE MAY BE IN THE FUTURE, LAWSUITS AGAINST COMPANY ALLEGING CLASS AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF, WHICH IF SUCCESSFUL, COULD POTENTIALLY RESULT IN SOME MONETARY OR OTHER RECOVERY TO YOU.

  • You will be precluded from bringing any class or representative action against Company.

WHETHER TO AGREE TO THIS TERMS OF USE IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION. IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE, AND YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND TO CONSULT WITH OTHERS — INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO AN ATTORNEY — REGARDING THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DECISION, JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN MAKING ANY OTHER IMPORTANT BUSINESS OR LIFE DECISION.

 

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

All matters relating to the App and the Terms of Use and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction).

 

Limitation on Time to File Claims

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE TERMS OF USE OR THE APP MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

 

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by the Company of any term or condition set out in the Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

 

If any provision of the Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

 

Entire Terms of Use

The Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy constitute the sole and entire Terms of Use between you and Company regarding the App and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, Terms of Uses, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the App.
