copyright law. It is our policy, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, to disable and/or
terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the
copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that your work has been copied
and posted on the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our copyright
agent with the following information: an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the
person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; a description of the copyrighted
work that you claim has been infringed; a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is
located on the Service; your address, telephone number, and email address; a written statement by you
that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent,
or the law; a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is
accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on such copyright owner’s behalf that
fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be
deemed to confer upon us actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or
acts are evident. Our copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as

SUPPLY YOU WITH ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICE AGAIN).
The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in the United States. We make no representations
that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the
Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with
all applicable national, state, local or other laws, statutes, directives, rules, regulations, and all
interpretations or orders of any government, administrative or regulatory authority or court, including but
not limited to those related to export and import of software, technical information or services. You may
not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign
person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all
materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in
the United States.
15. Release and Indemnification.
You agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless us, our parents,
subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, members, officers, employees, agents and third party licensors, from and
against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, claims and expenses, including, without limitation,
attorneys’ fees, with respect to (i) your access, use or misuse of, or reliance upon, the Service, (ii) your
actual or alleged violation or breach of this Agreement or rights of another, (iii) Content provided,
modified, or adapted by you or through use of your account, and/or (iv) your acts or omissions. You
agree to cooperate fully with us in the defense of any claim that is the subject of your obligations
hereunder. For the avoidance of doubt, this section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
16. California Waiver.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which
says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist
in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his
settlement with the debtor."
17. Term and Termination.
This Agreement is effective until terminated by us or you. We shall have the
right to terminate this Agreement including, without limitation, your right to access and use the Service, at
any time in our sole discretion and without advance notice to you. The licenses granted herein by us shall
automatically terminate without advance notice if you fail to comply with any material provision of this
Agreement. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by deleting your user account on the Service
and discontinuing use of any and all parts of the Service. Upon termination of this Agreement for any
reason, you shall immediately cease using the Service.
18. Governing Law and Venue for Disputes.
This Agreement, and your relationship with us under this
Agreement, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict or choice
of laws provisions. Except for any dispute related to us protecting our intellectual property rights, any
dispute with us, or our parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents or affiliates,
arising under or in relation to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively through final, binding, non-
appealable arbitration in accordance with the American Arbitration Association rules in English, in front of
one arbitrator with at least ten years experience in the area of the dispute. Each party shall equally bear
the fees associated with such arbitration unless the arbitrator finds such to be an undue hardship on you
and in that case, we shall bear the entire cost of the arbitration fees, excluding your attorneys’ fees. You
may participate in such arbitration by mail and phone to the fullest extent allowed by the rules and the
arbitrator. The arbitrator shall not issue a written opinion along with the judgment. For a dispute related to
us protecting our intellectual property rights, we may opt to use the federal or state courts located in New
York County, New York (and courts with appellate jurisdiction therefrom), except with respect to imminent
harm requiring temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in which case we may seek such relief in any
court with jurisdiction over the parties. You understand that, in return for agreement to this provision, we
are able to offer the Service at the terms designated, and that your assent to this provision is an
indispensable consideration to this Agreement. You hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of the
courts and arbitration proceedings described above.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us, our officers,
directors, employees, agents or affiliates, arising out of or relating to your use of the Service or this
(i) YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY; and
(ii) YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE
ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO
PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT INVOLVING
ANY SUCH DISPUTE.
If any provision in this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable or contrary to applicable
law, such provision shall be construed, limited, or altered, as necessary, to eliminate the invalidity or
unenforceability or the conflict with applicable law, and all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain
20. No Assignment, Sublicense or Transfer; Export.
You may not assign, sublicense, or transfer this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent. Any such attempted
assignment, sublicense, or transfer will be null and void and we, in our sole discretion, shall have the right
to immediately terminate this Agreement. Any software or technology obtained from us, including the
Mobile Software, originates in the United States, and is subject to United States export laws and
regulations. Such software and technology may not be exported or reexported to certain countries or
those persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports from the United States. In addition, software
and technology obtained from us may be subject to the import and export laws of other countries. It is
your responsibility to comply with all U.S. and foreign export and import laws and regulations.
You agree that we may communicate with you electronically. Such electronic
communications may consist of email, notices posted on the Service, and other communications. You
agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications we send to you electronically
will satisfy any requirement that such communication be in writing and, to the extent intended, such
communication will be an enforceable and binding term or amendment to this Agreement.
22. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between the
parties relating to its subject matter. All provisions that should by their nature survive the termination of
this Agreement shall survive the expiration of this Agreement including, without limitation, the rights and
licenses you have granted hereunder, indemnities, releases, disclaimers, limitations on liability, provisions
related to choice of law, no class action, and no trial by jury. Any waiver of or promise not to enforce any
right under this Agreement shall not be enforceable unless evidenced by a writing signed by the party
making said waiver or promise. NO VENDOR, DISTRIBUTOR, DEALER, RETAILER, AGENT, SALES
PERSON, OR OTHER PERSON IS AUTHORIZED BY US TO MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT OR TO
MAKE ANY WARRANTY, REPRESENTATION, OR PROMISE THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN OR IN
ADDITION TO THE WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR PROMISES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH
IN THIS AGREEMENT.
