Effective Date: 5/28/2023
- Use of the Service
You may not do any of the following in connection with the Service or other users:
- Use the Service in any manner that could interfere with, disrupt, negatively affect or inhibit other users from fully enjoying the Service or that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the functioning of the Service.
- Use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose or to engage in, encourage or promote any activity that is unlawful or that violates these Terms.
- Circumvent or attempt to circumvent any filtering, security measures, rate limits, or other features designed to protect the Service, its users, or third parties.
- The Company's Rights
As between you and the Company, all information, materials, and content of the Service, including text, graphics, data, formatting, graphs, designs, HTML, look and feel, photographs, music, sounds, images, software, videos, designs, typefaces, source and object code, format, queries, algorithms, and other content are owned by the Company or used with permission. The Company reserves all rights not expressly set forth in these Terms.
Any suggestions, comments, or other feedback you give us about the Service (the "Feedback") will constitute our confidential information. We are free to use, disclose, reproduce, license, distribute, and exploit this Feedback as we see fit, without compensation to you or any obligation or restriction due to any intellectual property rights or otherwise.
Except as required otherwise by applicable law, the Service and any other service and content included on or otherwise made available to you through the Service are provided to you on an "as is," "as available" basis without any representations or warranties of any kind. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim and exclude any and all other warranties, conditions, and representations (express or implied, oral or written), and all other terms that may be implied into these Terms by law, with respect to the Service and content included on or otherwise made available to you through the Service.
- Limitation of Liability
To the extent not prohibited by law, in no event will the Company be liable to you or any third party for any direct, incidental, special, indirect, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of property, physical losses, death, or any other damages or losses arising out of or related to these Terms, the Service, and/or third-party services or materials, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, warranty, tort, including negligence, whether active, passive, or imputed), product liability, strict liability, or other theory, even if the Company has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation may not apply to you.
For any loss or damage that is not excluded under these Terms, the total liability of the Company and its directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and investors will not exceed USD$100.
You will defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless from and against any actual or threatened suits, actions, proceedings (at law or in equity), claims, damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, penalties, interest, and disbursements) arising from or related to your conduct with respect to the Service or violation (or alleged violation) of these Terms or the rights of any third party by you.
- Changes to the Service
The Company reserves the right in our discretion to review, improve, change, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service and/or any features, information, materials, or content on the Service with or without providing notice to you. The Company will not be liable to you or any third party for any changes or discontinuance of the Service or any part of the Service.
- Consent to Electronic Communications
By using the Service, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding your use of the Service, and that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that the communications be in writing. To withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice, please notify us at email@example.com.
- Suspension and Termination
The Company may suspend or terminate your rights to access or use the Service for any reason or for no reason at all and with or without notice at the Company's discretion. All of the terms of these Terms (excluding the license grant) will survive any termination or suspension.
- Governing Law; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH THE COMPANY AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM THE COMPANY.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without resort to any conflict of law provisions.
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or the Service, you and the Company agree to consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing your mutual interests, try to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If we do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then either of us may, by notice to the other demand mediation under the mediation rules of the American Arbitration Association in Los Angeles, California. We both give up our right to litigate our disputes and may not proceed to arbitration without first trying mediation, but you and the Company are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and the Company will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
If settlement is not reached within 60 days after service of a written demand for mediation, any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association before a single arbitrator in San Francisco, California. The language of all proceedings and filings will be English. The arbitrator will render a written opinion including findings of fact and law, and the award and/or determination of the arbitrator will be binding on the parties and their respective administrators and assigns and will not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be otherwise assessed, and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys' fees and expenses by the arbitrator. It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings will be concluded within 90 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit only if failure to do so would unduly prejudice the rights of the parties. Failure to adhere to this time limit will not constitute a basis for challenging the award. It is the intent of the parties that the arbitration decision will be kept confidential by the parties and the arbitrator, subject to statutory requirements of disclosure.
Enforcement of these Terms is solely at EZLitter Inc's discretion. Failure to enforce any part of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of their right to enforce the same or other part of these Terms in other instances. If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unlawful, void, or otherwise unenforceable (including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations above), then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The section headings of these Terms are for reference purposes only and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
These Terms (and the other policies and terms referred to above) make up the entire agreement between you and EZLitter Inc regarding the Service, and they supersede any prior agreements that may have been made.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please email EZLitter Inc at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to:
EZLitter Inc. 1401 N Shoreline Blvd Mountain View, CA 94043 United States
