Certain digital apps, app addresses, tools, and third-party software and devices (“Third-Party Fees”) may also charge you a fee, including a per transaction or transfer fee, which are non-refundable. You are responsible for satisfying any such fee(s). You should note that any such fees may significantly reduce your rewards and therefore you are responsible for managing the selection, use, rate and frequency of your receipt of rewards to any such Third-Party Fees.
9.4. Transactions. The Joyride Services may enable you to make purchases through the Site and/or Joyride Apps, such as purchasing additional features and/or functionality for games, paying an entrance or other fee in connection with your participation in a Contest, or purchasing a Virtual Good in the Marketplace (each such purchase, a "Transaction"). In order to make Transactions through the Joyride Services, you will be required to connect your account with a third party payment platform (e.g., Stripe) approved by Joyride (as specified in our FAQs) and add funds to your in-app wallet linked to your Account (the "In-App Wallet"). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any payment method(s), credit card(s) and/or payment platforms you connect to your In-App Wallet or otherwise utilized in connection with any Transaction. By submitting such information, you grant Joyride the right to provide such information to our third party service providers for purposes of facilitating the completion of Transactions and/or adding funds to your In-App Wallet initiated by you or on your behalf. Verification of your information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction and/or adding funds to your In-App Wallet.
9.5. Adding Funds to In-App Wallets. All funds added to the In-App Wallet are denominated in the currency of the United States of America (unless otherwise provided by your applicable payment provider). Note that your payment provider and/or bank or card provider may charge you a separate fee if you are using a credit or debit card or other accepted payment method to add funds to your In-App Wallet outside of the U.S. Joyride does not receive any portion of, and does not have any control over, any such fee. Once you have added funds to your In-App Wallet, you may transfer the funds back to your linked payment provider subject to Joyride’s current minimum transfer amounts. For more information regarding adding and transferring funds to and from your In-App Wallet please see our FAQs.
9.6. Payment Terms. You agree to, and shall, pay Joyride the fees for your Transactions, in accordance with the payment terms specified therein. All fees and Transactions that occur through the Joyride Services are denominated in U.S. Dollars. Currency conversions are based on currency exchange rates applicable on the date of the Transaction. In addition, you remain responsible for any taxes that may be applicable to your Transactions. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and international laws (including minimum age requirements) related to your Transactions. The fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value-added and other taxes, or other similar charges, and you will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on Joyride’s income), and any related penalties and interest, arising from the payment of the fees, the delivery of the Joyride Services, Joyride Apps, Site, or performance of any services by Joyride. POTENTIAL USERS OF NFTS OR DIGITAL REWARDS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BITCOIN, ARE FOREWARNED OF POSSIBLE FINANCIAL LOSS AT THE TIME SUCH REWARDS ARE EXCHANGED FOR FIAT CURRENCY DUE TO AN UNFAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE. MOREOVER, A FAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE AT THE TIME OF EXCHANGE MAY RESULT IN A TAX LIABILITY. USERS SHOULD CONSULT A TAX ADVISOR REGARDING ANY TAX CONSEQUENCES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PURCHASE, SALE, TRADE, RECEIPT OR OTHER USE OF DIGITAL REWARDS.THE FEES PAID BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO BY YOU ARE NON-RETURNABLE AND NON-REFUNDABLE.
9.7.1. The Joyride Services may include a marketplace for you to buy and sell Virtual Goods purchased or earned through the Joyride Services (the “Marketplace”). If you wish to sell a Virtual Good, you must create a listing with an accurate and complete description of the Virtual Good offered for sale (including the price you are selling the Virtual Good for) (a “Listing”). If you wish to buy a Virtual Good in the Marketplace, you must follow the instructions provided on the Platform to purchase the Virtual Good set out in the Listing and pay the purchase price indicated by the seller.
9.7.2. You understand that the Platform provides an introductory platform only, and that our responsibilities are limited to facilitating the user functionality and availability of the Platform. We are not a reseller of Virtual Goods in the Marketplace. We are not a party to any agreement entered into between a buyer and a seller. We have no control over the conduct of buyers, sellers and any other users of the Marketplace. We accept no liability for any aspect of the buyer and seller interaction, including but not limited to the description of Virtual Goods offered for sale and the delivery of the Virtual Goods.
9.7.3. We set out a number of payment methods on the Platform. You may use any of these payment methods to complete a transaction on the Marketplace. You understand that each time you use a smart contract to conduct a transaction on the Marketplace, you will pay us commission on the total value of that transaction, in addition to any Blockchain Transaction Fees. Such commission will be transferred directly to us through the Flow Blockchain as a part of the transaction.
9.7.4. Where you are selling a Virtual Good and a buyer has paid for the Virtual Good via credit card, you appoint us as your limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the payment for the seller. You agree that payment by a buyer to us (as your limited payment collection agent) is to be considered the same as payment made directly by them to you and you will provide the purchased Virtual Good to the buyer as agreed, as if you had received payment directly from the buyer. We guarantee payment to you only for such amounts that we have successfully received from the buyer in accordance with these Terms. In accepting appointment as your limited payment collection agent, we assume no liability for your acts or omissions.
10. THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS, SERVICES & WEBSITES
10.1. Third-Party Services & Websites. The Joyride Services may enable you to connect your Account with certain third party products and/or services (for example, if you connect and/or log-in to the Joyride Services using your social media account or if you connect your Account with a third party payment provider), or we may integrate or enable access to, or otherwise distribute and/or make available games, content, services, and/or applications through or in connection with Joyride Services that are controlled and operated by third parties and not Joyride (all of the foregoing, collectively, "Third Party Services"). In addition, the Joyride Services may contain links to other third party websites which are not controlled or owned by Joyride ("Third Party Sites").
10.2. Use of Third Party Services & Third Party Sites. The Third Party Services and Third Party Sites are not part of the Joyride Services and are operated and controlled by the applicable third party providers of the Third Party Services and/or Third Party Sites. If you decide to access and use such Third Party Services and/or Third Party Sites, be advised that your use is governed solely by the terms and conditions of such Third Party Services and/or Third Party Sites. In addition, those third party providers may collect, access, and use your content, personal information and/or data submitted in connection with the use of the Third Party Services and/or Third Party Sites in a manner differently than we do and we do not control their use of such information.
10.3. DISCLAIMER – THIRD PARTY SERVICES & THIRD PARTY SITES. JOYRIDE DOES NOT ENDORSE, IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS AS TO ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES, THEIR CONTENT, OR THE MANNER IN WHICH THE APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS HANDLE ANY CONTENT, DATA AND/OR INFORMATION THAT MAY BE COLLECTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES. JOYRIDE IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO, OR IN ANY WAY MONITOR, ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OF SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES. JOYRIDE IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS CAUSED OR ALLEGED TO BE CAUSED BY OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES, OR YOUR RELIANCE ON THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OR OTHER POLICIES OF SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWING THE PRIVACY NOTICES FOR SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES.
11. INDEMNIFICATION – OR WHAT HAPPENS IF WE GET SUED. We hope this never happens, but if Joyride gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. This means that you agree to defend Joyride, its employees, contractors, and/or agents, and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, actions, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, expenses, and costs (including reasonable attorney fees) arising from (a) your breach of these Terms, including, without limitation any Additional Terms, (b) your breach of any license or other agreement applicable to any Third Party Services, (c) your use or misuse of the Joyride Services (or any part thereof), (d) your breach of any law or the intellectual property and/or privacy rights of a third party, or (e) any disputes between you and any other User. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you hereunder, in which case, you agree to cooperate with us in the defense of the claim. Some jurisdictions limit consumer indemnities, so some portions or all of this indemnity provision may not apply to you.
12. RELEASE & WAIVER
12.1.

13. DISCLOSURES, DISCLAIMERS, AND RISKS.
13.1. No Investment. Joyride Services are not an investment product, and no action, notice, communication by any means, or omission by Joyride shall be understood or interpreted as such. Joyride has no influence whatsoever on the Flow Blockchain, the transactions and consensus protocols, or the NFTs, cryptocurrencies, or digital rewards, including the Joyride Reward.
13.2. Digital Rewards. Digital rewards are not considered legal tender, are not issued or backed by any government, and have fewer regulatory protections than traditional currency. Moreover, digital rewards are not insured against theft or loss by any insurance corporation or any investor protection, including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation.
13.3. Market Risk. The value of NFTs, cryptocurrency, and digital rewards are derived from supply and demand in the global marketplace, which can rise or fall independent of any government currency. Holding NFTs, cryptocurrency, and digital rewards carries exchange rate and other types of risk. The value of NFTs, cryptocurrency, and digital rewards may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange traditional government currency for digital rewards, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular digital reward should the market disappear. The volatility and unpredictability of the price and value of NFTs, cryptocurrency, and digital rewards, relative to government currency, may result in significant loss over a short period of time. Joyride cannot guarantee or warrant the value of any NFT, cryptocurrency, digital reward or blockchain, including the Flow Blockchain and Joyride Reward, and explicitly warns you that that there is no reason to believe that any NFT, cryptocurrency, or blockchain reward will increase in value, and that they may hold no value, decrease in value, or entirely lose value.
13.4. Regulatory Risk. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of virtual NFTs, cryptocurrency, and blockchain rewards. The regulatory status of cryptographic tokens, digital assets and blockchain technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect cryptographic tokens, digital assets, blockchain technology and its applications. Such changes could negatively impact the Joyride Services in various ways, including, for example, through a determination that any of the above are regulated financial instruments that require registration. Joyride may cease any distribution of any of the above, the development of the Joyride Services or cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that governmental actions make it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue to do so. The industry in which Joyride operates is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There can be no assurance that governmental, quasi-governmental, regulatory or other similar types of (including banking) authorities will not examine the operations of Joyride and/or pursue enforcement actions against Joyride. Such governmental activities may or may not be the result of targeting Joyride in particular. All of this may subject Joyride to judgments, settlements, fines or penalties, or cause Joyride to restructure its operations and activities or to cease offering certain products or services, all of which could harm Joyride reputation or lead to higher operational costs, which may in turn have a material adverse effect on the Joyride Services.
13.5. Technology Risk. Virtual NFT and digital reward transactions may be irreversible and losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some virtual transactions are deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which may not necessarily be the date or time the user initiated the transaction. The nature of such virtual transactions may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber-attacks.
13.6. THE JOYRIDE SERVICES, THE CONTENT, AND/OR ANY OTHER MATERIALS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY JOYRIDE, ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". JOYRIDE AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SATISFACTORY PURPOSE, ACCURACY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. JOYRIDE, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE DELETION, FAILURE TO STORE, OR ANY LOSS OF ANY USER DATA, INCLUDING BLOCKCHAIN DATA, NFT, DIGITAL REWARDS, OR CRYPTOCURRENCY DERIVED, MAINTAINED, OR TRANSMITTED THROUGH USE OF JOYRIDE SERVICES. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR SECURING YOUR CUSTOMER DATA AND DIGITAL REWARDS. NEITHER JOYRIDE, ITS AFFILIATES, NOR ITS SUPPLIERS, WARRANTS THAT THE OPERATION OF JOYRIDE SERVICES, FLOW BLOCKCHAIN, OR ANY OTHER SUPPORTED BLOCKCHAIN WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. JOYRIDE, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR OPPORTUNITY COSTS RESULTING FROM BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK AND PROTOCOL OR THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE ISSUES, WHICH MAY IN TURN RESULT IN THE INABILITY TO PROCESS TRANSACTIONS ON ANY BLOCKCHAIN AT ALL OR WITHOUT INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL FEES.
13.7. JOYRIDE AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS DO NOT WARRANT OR MAKE ANY GUARANTEE THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED OR THAT THE JOYRIDE SERVICES (OR ANY PART THEREOF), THE CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER MATERIALS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY JOYRIDE: (A) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (B) WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR HOME NETWORK, COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVICE, OR ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICE AND/OR THIRD PARTY SITES); (C) WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE BASIS; OR (D) WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM JOYRIDE, ANY THIRD PARTY, OR THROUGH THE JOYRIDE SERVICES, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY.
14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL JOYRIDE BE LIABLE OR OBLIGATED, WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS, THE JOYRIDE SERVICES (OR ANY PART THEREOF), THE CONTENT, AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS AND/OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY JOYRIDE, WHETHER UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY AND EVEN IF JOYRIDE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LIABILITY OR OBLIGATION: (A) IN THE AGGREGATE, FOR ANY AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF THE FEES PAID TO BY YOU TO JOYRIDE FOR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO HEREUNDER IN THE SIX (6) MONTHS PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OR LIABILITY, OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00); (B) FOR ANY COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, TECHNOLOGY, SERVICES OR RIGHTS; (C) FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, RELIANCE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; (D) FOR INTERRUPTION OF USE OR LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA; OR (E) FOR ANY MATTER BEYOND JOYRIDE’S REASONABLE CONTROL. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THESE TERMS OR ANY LIMITED REMEDY SPECIFIED HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. JOYRIDE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY OF ANY KIND OF JOYRIDE’S AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS.
15. APPLICATION OF LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS TO CONSUMERS. Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages with respect to consumers (i.e., a person acquiring goods otherwise than in the course of a business), so the disclaimers, exclusions and limitations set forth in Sections 13 and 14 above may not apply to you if you are a consumer in such state and/or jurisdiction. The limitations or exclusions of warranties and liability contained in these Terms do not affect or prejudice the statutory rights of a consumer. The limitations or exclusions of warranties and remedies contained in these Terms shall apply to you as a consumer only to the extent such limitations or exclusions and remedies are permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction where you are located.
16. BASIS OF THE BARGAIN. The warranty disclaimer and limitation of liability set forth above in Sections 13 and 14 are fundamental elements of the basis of the agreement between Joyride and you. Joyride would not be able to provide the Joyride Services on an economic basis without such limitations. The warranty disclaimer and limitation of liability inure to the benefit of Joyride’s suppliers.
17. AVAILABILITY OF THE JOYRIDE SERVICES. Information describing the Joyride Services is accessible worldwide but this does not mean the Joyride Services, or certain portions thereof, are available in your country. Joyride may restrict access to the Joyride Services, or portions thereof, in certain countries in its sole discretion. It is your responsibility to make sure your use of the Joyride Services is legal in your country of residence. The Joyride Services may not be available or accessible in all languages.
18. THIRD PARTY RIGHTS
18.1. Third Party Rights. You acknowledge and agree that certain distributors (such as app store providers) are intended beneficiaries of these Terms and have the right to enforce these Terms directly against you. Other than as set out in this Section 18, these Terms are not intended to grant rights to anyone except you and Joyride, and in no event shall these Terms create any third party beneficiary rights. Furthermore, the rights to terminate, rescind, or agree to any variation, waiver, or settlement of these Terms are not subject to the consent of any other person.
18.2. iOS App. The following additional terms and conditions apply with respect to any Joyride Apps provided or made available to you by Joyride hereunder designed for use on an Apple iOS-powered mobile device (an "iOS App"): You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and Joyride only, and not with Apple, Inc. ("Apple"). Your use of the iOS App must comply with Apple’s then-current App Store Terms of Service. Joyride, and not Apple, is solely responsible for the iOS App and related content available thereon. You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation to provide maintenance and support services with respect to the iOS App. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the iOS App. You agree that Joyride, and not Apple, is responsible for addressing any claims by you relating to the iOS App or your possession and/or use of the iOS App, including, but not limited to: (a) product liability claims; (b) any claim that the iOS App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation, and all such claims are governed solely by these Terms and any law applicable to Joyride as the provider of the iOS App. You agree that Joyride, 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 the iOS App or your possession and use of the iOS App. You represent and warrant that you: (i) 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) are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You agree to comply with all applicable third-party terms of agreement when using the iOS App (e.g., you must not be in violation of its wireless data service terms of agreement when using the iOS App). The parties agree that Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries to these Terms as it relates to the license granted herein to you to use the iOS 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 the license granted herein to you to use the iOS App as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
19. GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
19.1. Governing Law. These Terms shall be governed in all respects by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods in its entirety is expressly excluded from these Terms, including, without limitation, application to the Platform and Joyride Apps. Furthermore, these Terms (including without limitation, the Platform and/or Joyride Apps) will not be governed or interpreted in any way by referring to any law based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) or any other act derived from or related to UCITA.
19.2. Disputes. Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms, you agree that any dispute between you and Joyride arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Joyride Services, Content, and/or any services provided by Joyride hereunder (or any part thereof) (collectively, "Disputes") shall be governed by the provisions set forth in this Section.
19.3. Notice of Disputes. A party who intends to seek arbitration or bring other action permitted under this Section 19, must first send a written notice of the Dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail ("Dispute Notice"). Joyride’s address for Dispute Notice is: Joyride Games, Inc., Attention: Notice of Dispute, 3790 El Camino Real No 1111, Palo Alto, CA 94306. The Dispute Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought.
19.4. Informal Resolution. You and Joyride agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the Dispute directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or Joyride may commence an arbitration proceeding or other permitted action, as set forth in this Section 19.
19.5. Agreement to Arbitrate. In the interest of resolving Disputes between you and Joyride in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Section 19.8, you and Joyride agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding individual (not class) arbitration (the "Agreement to Arbitrate"). Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. 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 includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, 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 these Terms. THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE MEANS YOU AND JOYRIDE WAIVE YOUR/ITS RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED.
19.6. Opting-Out of Arbitration. If you do not wish to resolve Disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate within 30 days after the date that you first agree to these Terms by sending a letter to Joyride Games, Inc., Attention: Arbitration Opt-Out, 3790 El Camino Real No 1111, Palo Alto, CA 94306, that specifies: your full legal name, the email address used to register an Account (if applicable), and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration ("Opt-Out Notice"). Once Joyride receives your Opt-Out Notice, the Agreement to Arbitrate will be void and the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19.10 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms. The remaining provisions of this Section 19 will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.
19.7. Arbitration. Any Disputes between you and Joyride that cannot be resolved through informal resolution in accordance with Section 19.4 above shall be resolved exclusively through final, binding and confidential arbitration and administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS") under its Rules of Arbitration then in effect (the "Rules") as modified by this Section 19.7. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in San Francisco, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, to the extent feasible, the parties agree to have parties and witnesses participate by video conference, telephone conference, or other telecommunication means. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator's decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in these Terms and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under these Terms, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing part) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. Any judgment on the arbitrator’s rendered award may be entered in any court with competent jurisdiction. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. The Agreement to Arbitrate and this arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
19.8. Exception to Arbitration. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any of Joyride’s intellectual property rights, Joyride may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court with competent jurisdiction in any country, including in the State of California, United States of America, without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute process set forth in this Section, and you hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in such courts. In addition, despite the Agreement to Arbitrate, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; or (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration.
19.9. No Class Actions. YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH JOYRIDE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED UNDER THESE TERMS.
19.10. Enforceability; Venue. If the Agreement to Arbitrate is found not to apply to your or our claim, you and Joyride agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts located in San Francisco County, California. Both you and Joyride consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
19.11. Time Limitation to Bring Claims. Notwithstanding any statute or law to the contrary, you expressly acknowledge and agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of Joyride Services (or any part thereof) or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, otherwise that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
20. COMMERCIAL ITEMS. The Joyride Apps, Platform, and any related end user documentation are "Commercial Items", as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. §2.101, consisting of "Commercial Computer Software" and "Commercial Computer Software Documentation", as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. §12.212 or 48 C.F.R. §227.7202, as applicable. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. §12.212 or 48 C.F.R. §227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, as applicable, the Commercial Computer Software and Commercial Computer Software Documentation will be licensed to U.S. Government end users (a) only as Commercial Items and (b) with only those rights as are granted to all other end users pursuant to these Terms.
21. GENERAL. Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under these Terms are assignable by you, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms must be in writing and executed by both parties. The failure of either party to exercise any right provided for by these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of that right. If any term or provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid in whole or in part for any reason, that provision shall be stricken from these Terms and shall not affect the legality, enforceability or validity of the remainder of the provisions set forth in these Terms. The parties acknowledge and agree that they are dealing with each other as independent contractors and nothing in these Terms and/or its performance shall be construed as creating a joint venture or agency between Joyride and you. Joyride may delegate the performance of any services hereunder to its affiliates and contractors. These Terms, any Additional Terms, including, without limitation, the Privacy Notice, the Content Standards and Community Guidelines, and Joyride Contest Rules, and any other policies or terms and condition referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between the parties regarding the subject matter, and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements or communications with regard to the subject matter described. Any notice to you may be provided by email. The headings of Sections of these Terms are for convenience and are not to be used in interpreting these Terms. As used in these Terms, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.” You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Joyride by virtue of having drafted them. The official text of these Terms (and any notice submitted hereunder) will be in English. The parties acknowledge that they require that these Terms be drawn up in the English language only. In the event of any dispute concerning the construction or meaning of these Terms, reference will be made only to these Terms as written in English and not to any translation into another language. Any delay in performance of any duties or obligations of either party will not be considered a breach of these Terms if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, telecommunications or Internet failure, plague, epidemic, pandemic, outbreaks of infectious disease or any other public health crisis, including quarantine or other employee restrictions, or any other event beyond the reasonable control of such party.
22. QUESTIONS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about these Terms.
