Special Terms for Apple Users
Users of any mobile application we offer acknowledge that they have reviewed and agree to the terms of the online app marketplace from which they have downloaded the App. The following additional terms and conditions apply with respect to any App that we provide to you designed for use on an Apple iOS-powered mobile device:
- You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and us only, and not with Apple, Inc. (“Apple”).
- Your use of our App must comply with Apple’s then-current App Store Terms of Service.
- We, and not Apple, are solely responsible for our App and the services and Content available thereon. You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation to provide maintenance and support services with respect to our App. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to our App.
- You agree that we, and not Apple, are responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to our App or your possession and/or use of our App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims pertaining to our App; (ii) any claim that our App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation, and all such claims are governed solely by these Terms and any law applicable to us as provider of our App.
- You agree that we, and not Apple, shall be responsible, to the extent required by these Terms, for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any third party intellectual property infringement claim related to our App or your possession and use of our App.
- You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, 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 and we agree that Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries to these Terms as they relate to your license of our App. Upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as they relate to your license of our App as a third party beneficiary thereof.
You agree that the laws of the state of New York, excluding its conflicts-of-law rules, shall govern these Terms. Please note that your use of the Site may be subject to other local, state, national, and international laws.
Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes/ Jury and Class Action Waiver
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to your use of the Site (including any claim involving us or our affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, contractors, officers, directors, telecommunication providers and content providers) shall be settled by arbitration administered by arbitration through JAMS and their Rules conducted in King County, New York, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You consent to jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located in King County, New York, for enforcement of this arbitration provision.
Our customer service department can resolve most customer concerns quickly and to the user’s satisfaction. Please contact us using the contact information below. Before either of us can begin an arbitration, we must each notify each other about the claim in writing (“Notice”) and try to resolve the dispute informally within 30 days. If you have a claim, you must send us a letter in which you (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with customer service’s solution (or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Unless expressly limited by this provision, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. In arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees from us to at least the same extent as you would be in court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an action in small claims court seeking only individualized relief, so long as the action remains in that court and is not removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies.
If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the JAMS Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules.
Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If you reside outside of the United States, and to the extent that applicable local law prevents certain disputes from being arbitrated in accordance with this Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes provision of the Terms, then you can file those disputes in your local courts. Likewise, if you reside outside of the United States, and applicable local law prevents your local court from applying State of New York law to resolve these disputes, then these disputes will be governed by the applicable local laws of your country, or other place of residence.
