Last Updated: 14 July 2014
Pact, Inc. (Pact) owns and operates the website http://www.pactapp.com (the Site). Pact also develops, operates and distributes certain software applications (Apps), which include hosted applications and applications for mobile devices. The Site and the Apps, together with all content, forums, information sharing functions (including the ability to post User-generated content, User Content), tools, transactions and other services available at the Site or by using the Apps, are collectively referred to as the Service. Except certain aspects of the Service that may be available to Public Users, the Service is provided only to Clients (as such terms are defined below).
The following are the current terms and conditions for any and all use of the Service. The Service is offered subject to acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein (Terms of Service). The Terms of Service shall be deemed to include all other operating rules, policies and procedures that are referred to herein or in any App or that may otherwise be published by Pact at the Site from time to time (collectively, Policies), including without limitation, the following Policies:
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF SERVICE, OR IF YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE OR AUTHORIZED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT, THEN DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY APP OR OTHERWISE ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE IN ANY MANNER. COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS, DOWNLOADING ANY APP OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING ALL OR ANY PART OF THE SITE OR SERVICE WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE AND CREATE A LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE CONTRACT UNDER WHICH YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS OF SERVICE, WITHOUT MODIFICATION.
Pact reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace the Terms of Service (including any Policy), in whole or in part, at any time. Pact will use reasonable efforts to notify Users of any material change at least 30 days in advance of the effective date of any change. Change notices will be communicated by postings at the Site, via the Apps or, in the case of Clients, Pact may also attempt to notify Clients by electronic mail. In any case, Users should periodically check the Terms of Service for changes. Continued use of the Service following any such notice of any change to the Terms of Service shall constitute User's acceptance of those changes. The Terms of Service may not otherwise be amended, except by a written agreement executed by User and Pact.
Pact may modify, suspend or terminate the Site, any App or other aspect of the Service, in whole or in part, at any time.
As used herein, the term User means you. You may also become a Client, as provided below.
The Service is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You hereby represent and warrant to Pact that you meet the foregoing qualifications. If you do not so qualify, you are prohibited from accessing, using or registering for the Service. In any event, Pact will not collect personally identifiable information from any person that is actually known to us to be under the age of 13. If Pact becomes aware that a person under 13 has provided personally identifiable information, it will take reasonable steps to remove such information and terminate the respective account.
Users include all registered and unregistered users that access or use the Site, any App or other aspect of the Service. Each User that properly completes the registration process shall be considered a Client for the purposes of the Terms of Service. Users that do not complete the registration process, or whose registration is not accepted, shall be considered Public Users. Public Users will have limited access to the Service, if at all.
Pact may refuse to offer or continue offering the Service to any person for any reason or no reason and may change its eligibility criteria from time to time.
To become a Client, the User must complete the registration process by providing Pact (or its service providers, like payment processors) with current, complete and accurate information, as more specifically required by the then current registration procedures. By way of illustration and not limitation: to register, prospective Clients may be required to specify a username and password, and to provide your name, address, zip code, legitimate electronic mail address and certain additional information (such as, for example, your preferred contact method, health and fitness goals and goods and services that may be of interest); in order to obtain certain aspects of the Service, Users may also elect to provide access information related to his or her accounts at social networking sites (such as, for example, Facebook); and in order to obtain certain Transaction services (such as, for example, in order to establish Pacts), Users will be required to provide detailed information about your Authorized Payment Method for billing purposes and your Authorized Reward Method for Rewards purposes. Clients shall maintain and update their registration data from time to time, to ensure that it is always current, complete and accurate. Users may apply for registration at http://www.pactapp.com. At its sole discretion, Pact may refuse to accept any User's application to register as a Client.
At this time, Clients must specify a valid credit card or verified PayPal account that will be used to make payments to Pact (the Authorized Payment Method); and Clients must specify a verified PayPal account that will be used to receive Rewards from Pact (the Authorized Reward Method). In the future, Pact may discontinue supporting any particular payment method or it may support additional payment methods (such as, for example, Google Wallet or Amazon Payments).
Upon acceptance, Pact will provide access credentials to the Client. Each Client is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his or her access credentials and other account information, and will be solely liable for any and all activities under Client’s account. Client agrees to notify Pact immediately of any unauthorized use of Client's account or any other breach of security.
Multiple Service accounts are prohibited. Any individual User may only register for and maintain 1 Service account. In addition, Service account may be associated with only one Authorized Payment Method and one Authorized Reward Method.
Pact will use social networking account information only for the purpose of providing the Service to the applicable Client, and Pact will not otherwise attempt to obtain information from (or post information using) such accounts without Client’s permission.
The Service may include the ability for Clients to incentivize their health and fitness goals (such as for example, goals regarding exercise, nutrition and weight loss programs) and/or purchase other goods and services (collectively, Products) from Pact, or from Site Affiliates or other third parties. Each Client agrees to strictly comply with and be bound by all requirements (including without limitation, any payment requirement or restriction on copying, redistributing or reselling any Product) that may be specified in respect of the purchase or sale of any Product (Transactions). Pact is only responsible for Products and corresponding Transactions where Pact provides the Products (Direct Products) to the User (Direct Transactions), and has no liability for Products or corresponding Transactions where any Site Affiliate or other third party provides the Products (Indirect Products) to the User (Indirect Transactions).
As a result of its limited role as an intermediary in Indirect Transactions, Pact has no control over the validity, quality, risk or legality of any Indirect Product or the terms and conditions of any Indirect Transaction. Therefore, each Client agrees, in connection with any use of the Service related to any Indirect Transaction and any Indirect Product: (a) to release Pact (and its licensors and suppliers) from any and all claims, demands, damages and liabilities, of any type and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such use of the Service by such Client (including any disputes arising therefrom); and (b) to attempt to settle any disputes directly with the counter-party in any Indirect Transaction.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable and then current Pact Policy (which are described below), Pact offers Clients the ability to incentivize their health and fitness goals (such as for example, goals regarding exercise, nutrition and weight loss programs) by establishing separate contracts with Pact (collectively, Pacts). Using the Service, each Client may establish a GymPact contract pursuant to the GymPact Policy (which is available at http://pactapp.com/legal/gympact), Veggie Pact contract pursuant to the Veggie Pact Policy (which is available at http://pactapp.com/legal/veggiepact) and/or Food Log Pact contract pursuant to the Food Log Pact Policy (which is available at http://pactapp.com/legal/foodlogpact).
Depending on whether or not the Client complies with his or her commitments made through the applicable Pact, and subject to the other terms and conditions of the applicable Pact Policy, the Client may be obligated to pay certain Service Fees to Pact or, subject to the terms and conditions of its then current Rewards Policy (which is available at http://pactapp.com/legal/rewards), the Client may be eligible to obtain Rewards from Pact.
Pact has no knowledge of Client’s medical conditions or fitness. Accordingly, Client agrees to be responsible for determining (alone or in consultation with a healthcare professional) whether his or her participation in any Pact might pose any adverse health risk.
Except as expressly provided otherwise in the Terms of Service, Pact and each User is solely responsible for all of its costs and expenses related to the Service (including without limitation, the costs and expenses incurred by User in performing any Pact).
At this time, Users may access the Site, download Apps and use the Service without charge; except, however, Clients that enter into Pacts are obligated by the payment terms required by the Pact. In the future, Pact may decide to charge for downloading Apps or accessing certain other features of the Service (or to change the price charged for such features), in which case Users will be notified of that change in accordance with Section 2. In that event, should User elect to download such Apps or access or subscribe to such features, User hereby agrees to pay all applicable fees, in the amounts, at the times and subject to the other payment terms described on the Service. Such fees may be specified on a recurring basis (e.g., subscription fees), non-recurring basis (e.g., one-time fees) or episodic basis (e.g., fees due upon occurrence or non-occurrence of certain events).
The fee to consummate any Transaction and receive the corresponding Product will be established by Pact (in the case of Direct Transactions, including Pacts) or by the Site Affiliate or other third party (in the case of Indirect Transactions). User hereby agrees to pay Pact (or the Site Affiliate or other third party, as applicable) all fees arising out of each Transaction he or she enters into, in the amounts, at the times and subject to the other payment terms specified for such Transaction.
Unless specified otherwise, all amounts payable hereunder shall be paid when due in US dollars, in immediately available funds by the Authorized Payment Method that you specified, in full without set-off, counterclaim or deduction. Any amount not paid when due shall bear a late payment charge until paid at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less. If any payment is past due, Pact (or the Site Affiliate or other third party, as applicable) shall have the right to take whatever action it deems appropriate (including without limitation, suspending or terminating User's ability to access, use and/or benefit from the Service, Product or Transaction). User agrees to reimburse Pact for all reasonable costs (including attorneys' fees) incurred in collecting payments. All payments to Pact (or the Site Affiliate or other third party, as applicable) are exclusive of federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes), and User agrees to bear and be liable for the payment of all such charges (excluding taxes based upon the payee's net income).
In the event of a disputed charge, User should contact Pact first and attempt to resolve the matter with our Customer Service representatives, who can be reached by using our members-only contact form at http://www.pactapp.com/contact/form.
All refund requests must be made by User to Customer Service within one month after the date of the disputed charge. If any hold or charge-back is made to your Authorized Payment Method without first contacting Customer Services, then Pact has the right to suspend the User’s account indefinitely, until the dispute is resolved.
The Site may include generally available or Client-controlled areas, which may include discussion forums, where Users may post User Content of interest to them (including without limitation, information related to any Transaction and corresponding Products). Discussion forums may be available to Public Users. User's ability to participate in any forum shall be subject to any eligibility criteria and other rules specified for such forum, and each User agrees to strictly comply with and be bound by all such requirements.
The Site, Apps, Pacts and all other aspects of the Service are provided to Users only for their personal, non-commercial use. Any unauthorized use of the Service (including without limitation, using any App, engaging in any Transaction or accessing any other aspect of the Service for which the User is not authorized, or any commercial use not related to a Transaction, such as, for example, reselling any content, information, App or Product to third parties) is expressly prohibited. Each Client is solely responsible for all acts or omissions that occur under his or her account, username or password, including Transactions and User Content posted to or transmitted via the Service.
As a condition of use, User hereby promises that he or she will not use the Service for any purpose (including without limitation, raising money or advertising or promoting any product, service or venture) that is unlawful or prohibited by the Terms of Service, or any other purpose not reasonably intended by Pact. In connection with using the Service, User agrees to abide by all applicable local, state, national and international laws, regulations and rules. Without limiting the foregoing, Users shall not use the Service for the purpose of money laundering, bid rigging, price fixing or other unlawful collusion, price signaling or exchange of competitively sensitive data or information.
By way of example, and not limitation, User agrees not to upload, post, submit or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any User Content (including text, communications, software, photographs, videos, sound recordings, data or other information), or take any other action, using any registration process, communications service, discussion forum, directory, survey, feedback, App or other service available on or through the Service that, in any manner:
User agrees that he or she shall perform all of his or her payment and other obligations in respect of any Transaction entered into in connection with using the Service (including without limitation, pursuant to any Pact).
User agrees not to establish or maintain more than 1 Service account. If Pact has reason to believe that any User has established or maintains more than 1 Service account, or has associated more than 1 payment method or Rewards method with such User’s Service account, or has attempted to do so, then Pact may, at its sole discretion, immediately suspend or terminate such User’s account(s), Pact(s) and/or access to the Service. Pact reserves the right to recover from any User the amount of any Rewards credited or paid to such User where Pact has reason to believe such Rewards accrued in connection with any violation of this provision (including without limitation, by deducting the amount of such Rewards from User’s account balance, by charging the amount of such Rewards to User’s Authorized Payment Method or by initiating legal action against User).
Pact may, at its sole discretion, immediately suspend or terminate any User's access to the Service should his or her conduct fail (or appear to fail) to strictly conform to the Terms of Service in any respect, including without limitation, to any provision of this section or any Policy.
Pact has no obligation to monitor the Service or any User's use thereof. However, Pact reserves the right at any time and without notice to monitor, review, retain or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request or investigation (including without limitation, any inquiry from law enforcement).
Pact does not undertake to pre-screen, authenticate, validate, monitor, moderate or edit any User Content. However, Pact and its agents have the right, at their sole discretion, to remove at any time any User Content that, in Pact's sole judgment, does not comply with the Terms of Service or otherwise appears illegal, harmful, objectionable or inaccurate. Pact is not responsible for any failure or delay in removing any such content.
User shall not post any confidential content or other information that he or she desires or is obligated to keep secret.
Because Pact does not review the substance of User Content or other communications via the Service, User must be careful in dealing with or relying on other Users to avoid fraud. User acknowledges that information provided by other Users may, despite the prohibitions set forth in the Terms of Service, be illegal, harmful, inaccurate or deceptive. Authentication of the true identity of Internet users is difficult, and so Pact cannot and does not confirm that any User is the person who they claim to be.
The Service may permit Users to access the Service (including downloading Apps) from, and to link from the Service to, and to cause the Service to inter-operate with, other mobile apps, services and websites (including without limitation, to, from and with the mobile apps, services and websites of Site Affiliates). These other mobile apps, services and websites are not under Pact's control, and User acknowledges and agrees that Pact is not responsible for the accuracy, effectiveness, timeliness, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of the content or function of such mobile apps, services and websites. Any such access, link or inter-operation does not imply endorsement of the other mobile app, service or website by Pact or any association with its operators. Different terms and conditions apply when Users are accessing and using such other mobile apps, services and websites.
Currently, the Service permits Clients to sync GymPacts with exercise and fitness programs tracked by RunKeeper, MapMyFitness, Jawbone UP, Fitbit and Moves, and to sync FoodLogPacts with weight loss programs tracked by MyFitnessPal. Such connections may change, from time to time, without prior notice or requirement to update this list.
Any dealings by Users with advertisers and other vendors (collectively, Site Affiliates) via the Service, or participation in promotions, including the delivery of and the payment for goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings or promotions, are solely between the User and the applicable Site Affiliate or other third party. Pact is not responsible or liable for any part of any such dealings or promotions.
User acknowledges and agrees that the Site, Apps, Service and all content and other materials created by or for Pact and made available on the Site or via the Service are protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets or other proprietary rights and laws, and Pact (and its licensors) shall own and retain all rights, title and interests (including without limitation, all intellectual property and proprietary rights) therein and thereto.
Unless and only to the extent expressly authorized by Pact, User agrees not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works of the Site, Apps, Service or such content and other materials. However, unless the Service otherwise restricts the Client from doing so, Client may download a copy of each App and print or download a reasonable number of copies of the content and other materials from the Site solely for the Client's personal, non-commercial purposes; provided, that Pact (or the applicable User, in the case of User Content) retains all copyright and other intellectual property and proprietary rights embodied therein. Systematic retrieval of data or other content from the Site by any User to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection, database or directory is strictly prohibited without Pact's express prior written permission.
IMPORTANT: If User desires to make any use of any App or Site content for any purpose other than personal, non-commercial purposes, then User shall first secure permission from the owner of that content.
User shall not directly or indirectly (a) use any App or any content and other materials from the Site in specifying, designing or implementing any software, platform, website or service that is similar to (or that replicates any functionality of) the Site, any App or other aspect of the Service or (b) disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer or otherwise try to discover any source code or underlying organization, structures, ideas or algorithms of any App or Service platform (except and only to the extent these restrictions are expressly prohibited by applicable statutory law).
Reproducing, copying or distributing any App or content, materials or design elements from the Site for any other purpose is strictly prohibited without Pact's express prior written permission. Attempting to access or use the Site, Apps, Pacts, Service or content and other materials for any purpose not expressly permitted in the Terms of Service is prohibited.
If User provides Pact with any description of errors or difficulties encountered in using the Service, or any assessment of the functions and performance of the Service, or suggested modifications, improvements and extensions to the Service (collectively, Feedback), then User agrees to assign and does hereby assign to Pact all rights, title and interests (including patent rights, copyright rights and all other intellectual property and proprietary rights throughout the world) in and to all Feedback.
By uploading, posting, submitting or otherwise distributing User Content of any kind to Pact, the Site or via any App or other aspect of the Service, User hereby:
IMPORTANT: User agrees not to contribute any User Content unless User has all of the rights (including rights from the copyright owner) necessary to grant Pact the use license, and to satisfy all of the warranty requirements, described above.
Pact may terminate any User's access to or use of all or any part of the Service (including without limitation, any App or Pact) at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately.
If Client wishes to terminate his or her Service registration and account, Client may do so at any time by going to Settings in the App and choosing "Delete account". Accounts cannot be deleted in the middle of an active Pact; those accounts will be deleted the following week. Please be advised that your Pacts and your Service account are not terminated simply by deleting Apps from your mobile device. Your Pact(s) can only be terminated by following the process described in the applicable Policy, and your Service registration and account can only be terminated by following the process described above in this provision.
Upon any termination, all rights and obligations of the parties shall cease and User shall immediately cease using the Service, except that (a) all obligations that accrued prior to the effective date of termination (including without limitation, all obligations to pay Service Fees) and all remedies for breach of the Terms of Service shall survive, (b) Pact will reasonably cooperate with any terminated User in completing any Transaction entered into prior to termination and (c) the provisions of Sections 14 – 27 shall survive. After termination, Pact has no obligation to maintain any content in Client's account, to make any payment to Client pursuant to any Pact or to forward any unread or unsent messages to Client or any other User or third party.
Pact does not offer or provide any kind of medical advice, health insurance or other healthcare service, including without limitation, any counseling, testing, evaluation, prescription, procedure or therapy related to exercise, nutrition, weight loss or wellness or related to the avoidance, prevention, diagnosis or treatment of any injury, illness, disease or condition (collectively, Healthcare Services).
Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider with questions regarding any medical condition or health or fitness program. The Service is not a substitute for professional Healthcare Services. The Service is intended only as a tool, which may be useful in achieving your overall health and fitness goals.
Pacts may not be appropriate for all persons. Before entering into any Pact and on an ongoing basis, each Client should consult with his or her physician or other qualified healthcare professional to determine whether any particular Pact would be safe and effective for them. Clients are expressly prohibited from engaging in any Pact against medical advice or if doing so might pose any health risk.
Pact does not recommend or endorse any specific Healthcare Service, provider or Pact.
THE SITE, APPS AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE SERVICE, AND ALL PACTS AND OTHER TRANSACTIONS AND PRODUCTS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". THE SITE, APPS AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE SERVICE, AND ALL PACTS AND OTHER TRANSACTIONS AND PRODUCTS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, INTEGRATION, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. PACT AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS DO NOT WARRANT THAT: (A) THE SERVICE OR ANY PACT, PRODUCT, CONTENT OR OTHER INFORMATION WILL BE TIMELY, ACCURATE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; (B) THE SERVICE WILL BE SECURE OR AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR PLACE; (C) ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; (D) THE SERVICE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; OR (E) ANY RESULT OR OUTCOME CAN BE ACHIEVED.
User agrees that Pact shall not be responsible or liable for: any unauthorized access to, delay, alteration or use of User's account, transmissions or data, any material or data sent or received or not sent or received; any Indirect Transaction entered into through the Service or any Indirect Product received pursuant to any Indirect Transaction; or any injury, loss or damage related to your participation in any Pact. User agrees that Pact is not responsible or liable for any threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, illegal or other content or conduct of any other User or third party or any infringement of another's rights, including intellectual property rights.
IN NO EVENT SHALL PACT (OR ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE CONCERNING ANY SUBJECT MATTER RELATED TO THE SITE, APPS OR OTHER ASPECTS OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, PACTS AND OTHER TRANSACTIONS AND PRODUCTS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ANY CLAIM OR ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), FOR ANY (A) MATTER BEYOND ITS REASONABLE CONTROL, (B) DELAY, LOSS OR INACCURACY OF DATA, DELAY, LOSS OR INTERRUPTION OF USE, OR COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE TECHNOLOGY, GOODS OR SERVICES, (C) INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, RELIANCE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF BUSINESS, REVENUES, PROFITS OR GOODWILL, OR (D) DAMAGES, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF AMOUNTS PAID TO PACT BY USER DURING THE PRIOR 3-MONTH PERIOD OR US $100.00, WHICHEVER IS GREATER, EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THESE LIMITATIONS ARE INDEPENDENT FROM ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY REMEDY PROVIDED HEREIN.
SOME STATES AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
User agrees to (a) defend Pact and its officers, directors, employees, contractors and representatives against any action or suit by a third party that arises out of any Indirect Product or Indirect Transaction (or any other dealings with any other User, Site Affiliate or other third party) in which User is involved, User's use or misuse of any aspect of the Service, or User's breach of any of his or her representations, warranties or covenants under the Terms of Service and (b) indemnify Pact for settlement amounts or damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) awarded and arising out of such a claim. Pact reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by User, in which event User will assist and cooperate with Pact in asserting any available defense.
Pact makes no representation that the Service is accessible, appropriate or legally available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing and using the Service is prohibited from territories where doing so would be illegal. Users that access the Service from other locations do so at their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
A printed version of the Terms of Service and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms of Service to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. User and Pact agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the Service must commence within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
The Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America. In the event of any conflict between US and foreign laws, rules and regulations, US laws, rules and regulations shall govern. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to the Terms of Service.
Except that either party may seek equitable or similar relief from any court of competent jurisdiction, any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or related to the Service or these Terms of Service that cannot be settled amicably by agreement of the parties shall be settled in accordance with the JAMS streamlined arbitration rules and procedures then in force, by one neutral arbitrator appointed in accordance with the rules. The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California, USA. The proceedings and all evidence shall be in English, and the governing law shall be as set forth herein. The arbitrator’s decision shall be in writing and shall comply with all terms and conditions in the Terms of Service. The decision and award rendered shall be final and binding on both parties. The parties acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and any award rendered pursuant hereto shall be governed by the UN Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. All disputes in arbitration will be handled solely between the named parties, and not on any representative or class basis.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COURT OR TO A JURY TRIAL.
Use of the Service is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Terms of Service, including without limitation, this section.
The Terms of Service (including then current Policies) are the entire agreement between User and Pact with respect to access, use and operation of the Site, Apps, Pacts and other aspects of the Service, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications, proposals and agreements (whether oral, written or electronic) between User and Pact with respect to the Service. If any provision of the Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
User's rights and obligations under the Terms of Service are personal to User, and are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by User except with Pact's prior written consent. Pact may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without consent. All waivers, consents and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the Service or Terms of Service, and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect.
