3. The Services. The Raydiant Service provides technology through which digital feeds, apps, and content created and provided by you or third parties (collectively, “Digital Displays”) can be hosted and displayed. The Services may also contain links, text, graphics, images, audio, video, information, code, or other materials provided by Raydiant (“Raydiant Content”). We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without the right to sublicense, to access and use the Services (including the Raydiant Content) solely as permitted by the TOS. Your use of the Services and any Raydiant Content is governed by these TOS, and you agree not to use, copy, adapt, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast or otherwise exploit the Services or Raydiant Content, except as expressly permitted in the TOS.

You agree to pay the usage fees set forth in your customer order form or service proposal, as applicable, and any applicable taxes. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time. We may let you pay amounts due under these TOS in arrears. If we do, you will make all of the payments due hereunder in US dollars within 30 days of the date of payment due date. Payment obligations can’t be canceled and fees paid are non-refundable. Unless you have filed a fee dispute, if you are overdue on payment and fail to pay within ten (10) days of the payment due date, then at our sole discretion we may (i) assess and you must pay a late fee of either 1.5% per month, or the maximum amount allowable by law, whichever is less and (ii) suspend our Services to you until you pay the amount you are overdue plus any applicable fees. If you fail to pay any unpaid and due amounts within fifteen (15) days of the payment due date, we may terminate your account. If you fail to pay any unpaid and due amounts within thirty (30) days of the payment due date, we may send your delinquent accounts to collections. Upon payment of all unpaid and due amounts within thirty (30) days of the payment due date, including any applicable fees, Service will be restored at your option. You must notify us in writing if you dispute any portion of any fees paid or payable by you under this TOS. You must provide that written notice to us within 60 days of the applicable charge and we will work together with you to resolve the applicable dispute promptly.

9. Disclaimers. THE SERVICES AND RAYDIANT CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WE EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES RELATED TO THIRD-PARTY EQUIPMENT, MATERIAL, SERVICES OR SOFTWARE. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICES OR RAYDIANT CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES REGARDING ANY CONTENT TRANSMITTED THROUGH THE SERVICES, OR THAT SUCH CONTENT WILL BE FREE OF OBJECTIONABLE OR ILLICIT CONTENT. NO INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM US OR THROUGH THE SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.
10. Limitations. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR OTHER LOSSES (EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES INCLUDING THE RAYDIANT CONTENT. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO US FOR THE SERVICES THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY DURING THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE CLAIM.
11. Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Raydiant harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the Services and/or the Raydiant Content, your breach of any law or the rights of a third party, or your violation of these TOS.
12. Termination. The period of these TOS will commence on the date they are accepted by you and continue for a period of time depending on the Services you have selected (the “Initial Period”). These TOS will automatically renew for additional, equivalent periods (each, a “Renewal Period”), provided that either party may terminate your account for any reason upon 30 days written notice to the other party. Raydiant may also terminate or suspend your account in the event you commit any breach of these TOS and fail to cure such breach within 5 days after written notice of that breach.
13. Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration. If you have any dispute with us, you agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us, and provide a written description of the dispute and your contact information. The parties agree that good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Except as provided herein, if we cannot resolve a dispute informally, any dispute will be resolved only by binding arbitration in San Francisco, CA or another location that we have both agreed to. The arbitration will be conducted under the rules of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (see www.jamsadr.com) (referred to as the “JAMS Rules”) and under the rules set forth in this TOS. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in this TOS, the rules set forth in this TOS will govern. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. You may seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to your state’s law. If you decide to initiate arbitration on behalf of the legal entity you represent, you will be required to pay the arbitration initiation fee as well as any additional deposit required by JAMS. You also agree to pay the costs of the arbitration proceeding. Other fees will be paid in accordance with JAMS Rules. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these TOS including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these TOS is void or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any competent court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its IP rights. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction. Both parties agree that any claims or controversies must be brought against each other on an individual basis only. That means neither you nor we can bring a claim as a member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action. The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s or entity’s claims into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative proceeding (unless we agree otherwise). And, the arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s or entity’s case can only impact the person or entity that brought the claim, not other Raydiant customers, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other customers.
14. General Provisions. You agree that any notice, agreements, disclosure or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any requirement that such communications be in writing. You may not assign your rights or obligations under or transfer these TOS without our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these TOS without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these TOS will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. You agree to comply strictly with all applicable domestic and international laws and economic sanctions regulations. You represent that you are not on a U.S. government exclusion list or under the control of or an agent for any entity on such a list. We shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside our reasonable control, including without limitation any acts of God. These TOS supersede all prior and contemporaneous proposals, statements, and agreements, oral and written. If any provision of the TOS is found invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible by law, and the other provisions of the TOS will remain in force. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed by us in writing. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by the TOS. These TOS shall be governed by the laws of California regardless of any conflicts of law principles. Except for claims that must be arbitrated, all claims must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the Northern District of California. Upon termination or expiration of your account or these TOS more generally, the terms of the following Sections will survive: 5, 6, 9-11, 13 and 14.
