B. Anonymized, Aggregated Data. We automatically collect certain usage data and information generated by or submitted or uploaded to the Service relating to certain user actions taken in the platform, such as the number of times users access or use certain Service features. We process such data for the purpose of generating anonymized, aggregated statistical data. Such anonymized, aggregated statistical data is used for benchmarking purposes and to improve our products and services. Such data does not contain any text which is or was part of Customer Content, your Confidential Information, or data or information that can be used to identify you.
A. Billing Policies. Certain aspects of the Service may be provided for a fee or other charge. If you elect to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to the terms and conditions in this Section 6, as we may update them from time to time, or as otherwise provided by Company in writing.

Any change to our pricing or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in this Agreement.
B. No Refunds. You may cancel your account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation. In the event that Company suspends or terminates your account or this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or credit (including for any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Service, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else).
C. Late Payments. If you fail to make payments (not disputed in good faith) when due under these Terms, and after continued non-payment for a period of fifteen (15) days after we provide you with written notice and an opportunity to cure, we may suspend provision of the Service until payment is received and may charge you the overdue amount together with our costs incurred in collecting such payment. As a nonexclusive remedy, we are entitled to withhold performance and suspend provision of the Service until all undisputed amounts due are paid in full. In the unlikely event our collections efforts are unsuccessful, and we are required to obtain a third party or parties to collect Fees not reasonably disputed in good faith, you agree to incur the reasonable costs associated with such third-party collections efforts.
D. Taxes. Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties, export or import fees, or other governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added sales, use or withholding taxes, imposed or assessed by any jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”).

You agree to cooperate with us and provide us with timely and accurate information as may be required for the calculation and withholding of applicable Taxes. If we have a legal obligation to collect and remit Taxes for which you are responsible, we will invoice you and you will pay us that amount unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
7. No Professional Advice
If the Service provides professional information (for example, accounting, medical, legal, or financial), such information is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as professional advice. No action should be taken based upon any information contained in the Service. You should seek independent professional advice from a person who is licensed and/or qualified in the applicable area.

Company and you (respectively, a “party,”) may have access to the other party’s information, which will be deemed “Confidential Information” if identified as such by the disclosing party or if the information by its nature is normally and reasonably considered confidential, such as information regarding product, methodology, research, customers, business partners, business plans and any information that provides a competitive advantage. Your Confidential Information includes User Content; Confidential Information of the Company includes all non-public aspects of the Service and this Agreement and all Order Forms (including pricing).
B. Standard of Care. The receiving party will use the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a like nature, but not less than a reasonable degree of care, to (a) prevent use or copying of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than to perform its obligations or exercise its rights as provided under this Agreement, and (b) prevent disclosure of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information other than to its employees (or agents bound by similar confidentiality obligations) with a need to access the Confidential Information for purposes consistent with this Agreement. Confidential Information will remain the property of the disclosing party and will be returned or (along with all copies) destroyed upon request, at which time the receiving party will provide to the disclosing party a written certification of such return or destruction. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to its obligations under this Section, the receiving party will be responsible for the acts and omissions of its employees, contractors and agents to the same extent as if those acts and omissions were those of the receiving party.

You acknowledge and agree that such third parties are not our agents, that we are not responsible for their services, compliance, actions or omissions or for their maintenance or treatment of the information you submit to the Service, that other than as set forth in the DPA, we will not be liable for and specifically disclaim liability for any damage or loss caused thereby, that access to a third party via the Service does not imply any endorsement by us, and that any of your information submitted to such third parties via the Service will be governed by your agreement (if any) with such third party. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of information submitted to the service resulting from access by such third party.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Company and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any that is submitted via your account; or (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.

If we believe our intellectual property is or may become the subject of a claim of infringement or misappropriation, we may, at our option and expense, procure for the right to use the intellectual property, or modify or replace the intellectual property to make it non-infringing and functionally equivalent. If we reasonably conclude that neither of these alternatives is reasonably available, we may require the return or destruction of its intellectual property upon written request and the termination of this Agreement to the extent performance is based upon or involves the use of such intellectual property, in which case you would be entitled to a refund of any prepaid fees for the period after termination.

14. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
A. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that San Francisco County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
B. Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM COMPANY. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Company has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco County, California, unless you and Company agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Company from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
C. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
A. Electronic Signatures. You hereby acknowledge and agree that your electronic signature provided in connection with the Service shall have the same legal effect as your handwritten signature.

D. Entire Agreement/Severability. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
E. No Waiver. A. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Company’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

G. Public Announcements. You grant us the right to use your name, logo, trademarks and/or trade names in press releases, webpages, product brochures and financial reports indicating that you are a customer of ours. All other public statements or releases will require the mutual consent of the parties.

Neither these Terms nor the cooperation of the parties contemplated under these Terms will be deemed or construed to create any partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party is, nor will either party hold itself out to be, vested with any power or right to bind the other party contractually or act on behalf of the other party as a broker, agent or otherwise.
