Our Service allows you and other users to create and join public groups (“Public Groups”). Public Groups enable users who have a common interest or affiliation to chat among themselves.

As such, you grant us (Autonomous, its subsidiaries, and affiliates) the non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers), transferable right to use Your Content for any purpose (including, without limitation, the rights to use, reproduce, publicly perform or display, distribute, adapt, publish, modify, translate, incorporate into other works in any form, media, or technology, and create derivative works of Your Content, in whole or in part, throughout the world in any media).

We reserve the right to remove, screen, edit, or disable access to any of Your Content, without notice to you, that we consider, in our sole discretion, to be in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Services.

d. Reporting Violations

While we are under no obligation to review Your Content, we reserve the right to do so at any time. We may report any activity that we suspect violates any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other appropriate third parties, and we may cooperate with such authorities as they may request, all without liability to us.

8. Limitation of Liability

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, SINCE IT LIMITS THE LIABILITY OF AUTONOMOUS. EACH OF THE SUBSECTIONS BELOW ONLY APPLIES UP TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. NOTHING HEREIN IS INTENDED TO LIMIT ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE WHICH MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY LIMITED.

A. YOU AGREE THAT THE SERVICE IS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE RISK THAT YOU MIGHT BE EXPOSED TO CONTENT THAT IS OFFENSIVE, INDECENT, INACCURATE, OBJECTIONABLE, OR OTHERWISE INAPPROPRIATE). WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICE, THE SAFETY OR SECURITY OF THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONTENT INCLUDED OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

B. WE MAKE NO CLAIMS OR PROMISES ABOUT THE CONDUCT OF THIRD PARTIES. ACCORDINGLY, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT MIGHT ARISE FROM THE ACTIONS OF THIRD PARTIES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IF ANOTHER USER MISUSES YOUR CONTENT OR IDENTITY, OR IF YOU HAVE A NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE WITH A THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICE).

C. YOU AGREE THAT OUR MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES THAT YOU SUFFER IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES OR CONTENT, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, WILL BE LIMITED TO AND WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (I) THE AMOUNT, IF ANY, YOU PAID DIRECTLY TO AUTONOMOUS IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY, OR (II) $100.

D. AUTONOMOUS AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, RELIANCE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO REPUTATION TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE, COSTS OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR CONTENT, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, OR ANY COMMUNICATIONS, INTERACTIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICES OR OTHER PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU COMMUNICATE OR INTERACT AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES), WHETHER BASED IN WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE OR CONTENT, EVEN IF AUTONOMOUS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, THE SERVICES, OR THE TERMS OF USE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITES AND SERVICES.

9. Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Autonomous, its affiliates, its officers, directors, members, employees, agents and representatives from and against any claims, suits, proceedings, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees) in any way related to or arising out of: (i) your access to or use of the Products and Services, (ii) Your Content, (iii) your violation of any of these Terms; or (iv) the infringement by you, or anyone using your account, of the intellectual property rights or other rights of any person or entity. Autonomous reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims at your expense. You agree not to settle any matter for which you are required to indemnify us without our prior written consent in each case. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action, or proceeding once we become aware of it; however, our failure to notify will not affect your obligations hereunder (except to the extent that our failure to notify you materially prejudices your ability to defend the claim).

10. Copyright and Trademark Disputes

We respect copyright law and expect our members to do the same. We have adopted and implemented a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of registered members or other account holders who repeatedly infringe or are believed to be repeatedly infringing the rights of copyright holders. If you believe any Content or materials on the Services infringe your copyright, you agree to abide by the notice and takedown procedures set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

11. Our Policy Toward Children

Our Service is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect, solicit, or store personally identifiable information from, or about children under the age of 13. For that reason, we ask you to confirm your age when you sign up for the Services by providing an accurate age. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her under 13 child has provided us with personally identifiable information without his or her consent, he or she may delete the child’s entire account.

12. Governing Law and Venue

These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without prejudice to that State’s conflict of laws provisions. Subject to Section 13 below (Binding Arbitration), for any claim, cause of action, or dispute that may arise between us and that is not subject to the binding arbitration provisions (i.e., if you choose to opt out of arbitration under Section 13(d)), you accept the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the Southern District of California. The parties expressly exclude application of the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods to these Terms. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of our or any third party’s intellectual property and/or proprietary rights. Some countries (including those in the European Union) have laws that require agreements to be governed by the local laws of the consumer's country and or require that their substantive laws, including privacy laws, apply. This section does not override those laws.

13. Binding Arbitration

a. Informal Negotiation

In the event of any dispute, claim, or cause of action that you may have against us arises out of or relates to your use of the Services (“Dispute”), you agreed that you will first contact us in writing of the Dispute at the contact information below (“Notice”). The Notice must describe 1) Your legal name, 2) Your phone number; 3) the basis and nature of the Dispute; and 4) the specific relief sought. Upon our receipt of your Notice, the parties will attempt in good faith to informally resolve the Dispute within 30 calendar days before initiating arbitration proceedings (“Informal Resolution”).

b. Mandatory Arbitration

If the parties are unable to resolve the Dispute through the Informal Resolution process, then you agreed that the Dispute shall be exclusively resolved and settled by confidential binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and where applicable and appropriate, the AAA Supplementary Procedure for Consumer Related Disputes (www.adr.org) The initiating party may decide the arbitration to be conducted in person, online and/or be based on written submission. In the case of in-person arbitration, then it shall be conducted in California, Orange County. The language shall be English. Any judgement on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

c. No Class Action

THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND AUTONOMOUS AGREE, NO ARBITRATOR OR JUDGE MAY CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF.

d. Arbitration Opt-Out

You have the right opt out mandatory arbitration by sending us a written notice of your decision to opt out, within 30 days of the date you first accepted these Terms, to our physical address listed below. Your written notice must include your phone number, your legal name, country of residence, and your email address. If you send us a written notice or if this binding arbitration provision is invalidated, in whole or in part, then the mandatory arbitration provisions in this Agreement will not apply, and the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 12 above shall apply. IF YOU DO NOT SEND THIS WRITTEN NOTICE, THEN YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS IN THESE TERMS.

14. Termination

You may terminate these Terms at any time by closing your account, discontinuing your use of the Services, and providing us with a notice of termination at the address provided below.

We may close your account, suspend your ability to use certain portions of the Service, and/or ban you altogether from the Service for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. If we close or suspend your account for violating these Terms, such closure or suspension shall be deemed a termination with cause. We may also modify or terminate the Service without prior notice.

In the event of termination, whether by you or us, Sections 1, 3, 4, 5, and 7 through 15 of these Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect, including our right to use Your Content as detailed in Section 4.

15. General

We may provide you with notices by email, regular mail, push notifications or communications through the Service. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically (to the email address you provide in your account profile) satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

You will comply with all applicable laws and regulations governing your use of the Services and posting of Your Content (including, without limitation, all applicable laws governing export control). In particular, but without limitation, you agree that:

  • If you are located in a country embargoed by the United States, or are on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Denied Person's List or Entity List, you will not engage in commercial activities on or with Autonomous;

  • You will not export or re-export the Services or the Mobile App into any United States embargoed countries where receiving products, services, or software from the United States is prohibited.

By using the Services or the Mobile App, you represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo that prohibits receiving products, services, or software from the United States, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You will also not use the Services or the Mobile App for any purpose prohibited by U.S. law, including, but not limited to the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons.

You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense these Terms without our prior written consent. We may assign, transfer, or sublicense these Terms without restriction, and without notice to you. Any assignment, transfer, or sublicense attempted in violation of these Terms will be void.

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding your use of the Service, and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and us regarding the Service. The parties acknowledge that no reliance is placed upon any representation made, but not expressly contained in these Terms. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of that right or provision on our part.

If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect, and any unenforceable portion will be construed and enforced in a manner that most closely reflects the intent of the original language.

The parties are independent contractors, and nothing in these Terms is intended to or shall create any type of joint venture, partnership, employer/employee, fiduciary, or franchise relationship between us.

The Site is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Autonomous makes no representation that the Sites, Site Content, Comments, Services, products, information or other materials available on, in, or through the Site is appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Sites from other locations do so on their own volition and are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.
