Terms of Service (“Terms”)

 

Last updated: January 5, 2017

 

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”) carefully before using the http://www.spf.io website (the “Service”) operated by TheoTech LLC (the “Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”).

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use the Service. These Terms supersede any previous Terms of Service.

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.

All disputes between you and the Company will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. See the “Resolving Disputes” section for more detail.

If you register on behalf of a business, you represent that you have the authority to bind that business and that your acceptance of these Terms will be treated as acceptance by the business.

Disclaimer of Warranties

While the Company attempts to make User Content available through the Service, the Company does not guarantee access to, or hosting of, your User Content. You agree that the Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for termination of your access to the Service for any reason.

You understand that use of the Service is at your own risk and the Service is provided “as is”. The Company makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, the Company does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the Service and/or User Content, or on any sites linked to this site.

 

Limitation of Liabilities

In no event shall the Company be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the Service and/or User Content, even if the Company has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

 

Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold the Company harmless from any claim or demand, including attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms, your improper use of our Service, and/or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

 

Resolving Disputes

Before filing a claim against the Company, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting spfio@theotech.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days of submission, either you or the Company may bring a formal arbitration proceeding.

You and the Company agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to ATTN: Legal 8810 35th AVE NE Seattle, WA 98115. Arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The AAA’s rules will govern the payment of all arbitration fees. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, in person in Washington state, or at a mutually agreed location.

 

Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Washington in the United States.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.

 

Modifications to Terms

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.

 

Complete Agreement

The Terms above as well as the Privacy Policy set forth the entire understanding between the  user and the Company. Unless stated otherwise, if any portion of these Terms is held unenforceable or invalid, the remainder of the Terms remains enforceable and in full effect.
