TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Updated: July, 2023
Please note that the sections titled "Binding Arbitration" and "Class Action Waiver" contain a binding arbitration agreement and class action waiver that affect your legal rights. It is essential to read and understand these sections.
If you are 13 or older but below the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you must review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to ensure mutual understanding. If you are under 13, you can use the Services only with the consent of your parent or guardian.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to deny you access to the Services or any portion of it without prior notice or explanation.
If you wish to save preferences on our platform, you must register for an account. You may log in using third-party login providers such as Facebook or Google. If you choose not to use third-party credentials, you will be prompted to create an account, which will require a sign-in name ("Sign-In Name"), password ("Password"), and potentially additional information to authenticate your identity in future logins ("Unique Identifiers"). When creating your account, you must provide accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password is for the exclusive use of a single authorized user. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and proper use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any activities or communications made using them. Please inform us promptly of any need to deactivate a Password or Sign-In Name or change any Unique Identifier. We reserve the right to delete or modify your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason, without any liability to you for resulting losses or damages. We are under no obligation to accept any individual or entity as an account holder and may accept or reject registrations at our sole discretion. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your account.

The Services and Content are provided "as is" and "as available," without any warranties, whether express or implied. We expressly disclaim all warranties, including but not limited to warranties of title, merchantability, non-infringement of third parties rights, and fitness for a particular purpose. We do not warrant that the information on the Services is accurate, reliable, or error-free, or that the Services will be uninterrupted or free of harmful components.
In connection with any warranty, contract, or common law tort claims: (i) we and our licensors shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages, lost profits, or damages resulting from lost data or business interruption resulting from the use or inability to access and use the Services or the Content; and (ii) any direct damages resulting from your use of the Services or Content shall be limited to one hundred US dollars ($100).
Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, so some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
The Services may contain technical inaccuracies, typographical errors, or omissions. Unless required by applicable laws, we are not responsible for any such errors listed on the Services.
- DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and aim to comply with relevant laws.

The Services may provide access to Third Party Services and External Sites. These links are provided for your convenience and do not signify endorsement of the content on such Third Party Services or External Sites. Accessing Third Party Services and External Sites is subject to their respective terms and conditions. We are not responsible for the content or accuracy of any linked External Sites.

We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification under this section, and you agree to cooperate with our defense.
- CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT
These Terms of service are effective as of the last updated date stated at the top and may change from time to time. Any changes will be posted on the website, and your continued use of the Services after such changes will signify your acceptance of the revised Terms of service. Please check these Terms of service regularly.
- TERMINATION OF THE AGREEMENT
We reserve the right to restrict, suspend, or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Services, or any part thereof, at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability. Sections 4 to 18 of this Agreement shall survive its termination.
- CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the dispute between you and us individually. No arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other, and class action procedures are not permitted. You may only bring claims against us in your individual capacity and not as part of a purported class or representative proceeding.
- EQUITABLE RELIEF
You acknowledge that any breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential information may cause irreparable harm to us. In such cases, we are entitled to seek injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement in addition to other remedies available. We may request interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief from any court having jurisdiction to protect our rights and property pending arbitration.
Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement does not waive that provision or any other provision herein. No waiver shall be effective unless made in writing. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us concerning the subject matter and supersedes any previous or contemporaneous agreements, written or oral, between the parties. Section headings are provided for convenience and do not carry legal significance. This Agreement benefits our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
