YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SERVICES AND ALL THE MATERIALS, INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, CONTENT AND OTHER SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, WE AND ANY SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATED COMPANIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON‐INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE IN TRADE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR‐FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SITE, APP STORE OR THE SERVERS THAT MAKE THE SERVICES AVAILABLE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. IN ADDITION, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE CONTENT ACCESSIBLE VIA THE SERVICES ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, AVAILABLE, CURRENT, OR THAT THE RESULTS OF USING THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS.

6. Governing Law. By using the Services, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act of the United States, applicable United States federal law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us. If you reside outside the U.S., and to the extent applicable law does not allow the aforementioned, then the applicable laws of the country in which you reside will govern these Terms, and any disputes will be submitted to the courts of competent jurisdiction of the country in which you reside.
7. Dispute Resolution. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND US MAY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act of the United States and U.S. federal arbitration law apply to these Terms.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the following: Citadella Media, LLC, 1821 Stanford Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404, Attn: General Counsel. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer‐Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1‐800‐778‐7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
8. Entire Agreement; Severability. These Terms supersede all prior agreements, oral or written, and constitute the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter of these Terms. However, you acknowledge that other aspects of your use of the Services may be subject to separate agreements with us, including, for example, contest and sweepstakes rules. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
9. How to Contact Us. If you need to get in touch with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Citadella Media, LLC, 1821 Stanford Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404.
10. Notice Regarding Apple. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms are between you and us only, not with Apple, and Apple is not responsible for the Services or the content thereof. Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to Splish (the “App”). In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, then you may notify Apple and Apple will refund the purchase price for the relevant App to you; and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App. Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. Apple is not responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights. You agree to comply with any applicable third party terms, when using the App. Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms. You hereby 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.
