- PAYMENT AND TRANSACTIONS.
- Speevr is Not a Party to Contracts. Prospective Subscribers may contact Sellers through the Service and indicate their desire to receive a subscription to a Publication offered on the Service by Seller. Any subscription agreement between a Subscriber and a Seller is solely between that Subscriber and that Seller. Speevr will not be a party to any contracts for subscriptions to Publications accessible through the Service. Speevr merely facilitates these contracts by supplying a platform for communication and payment tools. Speevr does not introduce Subscribers to Sellers and does not help Sellers find Subscribers. Speevr merely makes the Service available to enable Sellers and Subscribers to do so themselves. Therefore, Speevr does not charge a fee when you find a suitable Seller or Publication. However, Subscribers and Sellers are obligated to use the Service to pay for and receive payment for any subscriptions order as a result of the Subscriber and Seller identifying each other through the Service. You acknowledge and agree that a substantial portion of the compensation Speevr receives for making the Services available to you is the Processing Fee described in the sub-section titled “Processing Fee Authorization.” You further acknowledge and agree that Speevr only collects this Processing Fee when a Seller receives payment through the Service. Therefore, in consideration for Speevr making the Service available to you, you agree to use the Service as your exclusive method to request, make, and receive payments for any subscription that directly or indirectly originated as a result of a connection made between a Subscriber and a Seller through the Service (a “Speevr Relationship”).
- Payment Process. In consideration for the access rights granted to you under this Agreement, you will pay to Seller the fees set forth in an applicable Invoice. If you provide Speevr with valid credit card information, you authorize Speevr to charge such credit card, or other approved method of payment for fees that you authorize Speevr to satisfy. Invoiced charges are due net thirty (30) days from the invoice date. You authorize Speevr to charge you the full amount owed to any Seller via the Service, as well as Speevr’s Processing Fee (as defined below), if any.
- Processing Fee Authorization. Speevr charges Sellers a processing fee equal to thirty percent (30%) of the cost of an applicable subscription that originated as a result of a Speevr Relationship (the “Processing Fee”). The Processing Fee may be deducted from payments made by Subscriber to Seller prior to deposit in Seller’s bank account. By agreeing to these terms, Subscriber and Seller are giving Speevr permission to charge this fee and are fully aware that it is part of the transaction between the Subscriber and the Seller. For clarity, Speevr does not assess a Processing Fee in regard to any subscription that originated prior to the formation of a Speevr Relationship.
- Responsibility for Payment. You are responsible for all fees, including taxes, associated with your use of the Service. By using the Service, you agree to pay Seller through the Service the amount agreed on in an applicable Invoice. You are responsible for providing us with a valid means of payment. Speevr shall be entitled to (in addition to any other rights or remedies Speevr may have) discontinue the Service and suspend access to the Service for those Users whose corresponding fees are overdue until such amounts are paid in full.
- Audit. You will permit Speevr or its representatives to review your relevant records and inspect your facilities to ensure compliance with this Agreement. Speevr will give you at least ten (10) days advance notice of any such inspection and will conduct the same during normal business hours in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with your normal operations. If any such audit should disclose any underpayment of fees, you shall promptly pay Speevr such underpaid amount, together with interest thereon at the rate specified in the applicable Invoice. If the amount of such underpayment exceeds five percent (5%) of fees actually paid during the audited period, you shall also pay Speevr for Speevr’s expenses associated with such audit.
- MOBILE SOFTWARE.
- Mobile Software. We may make available software to access the Service via a mobile device (“Mobile Software”). To use the Mobile Software you must have a mobile device that is compatible with the Mobile Software. Speevr does not warrant that the Mobile Software will be compatible with your mobile device. You may use mobile data in connection with the Mobile Software and may incur additional charges from your wireless provider for these services. You agree that you are solely responsible for any such charges. Speevr hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use a compiled code copy of the Mobile Software for one Speevr account on one mobile device owned or leased solely by you, for your personal use.
You may not: (i) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Mobile Software, except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (ii) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute or otherwise transfer the Mobile Software to any third party or use the Mobile Software to provide time sharing or similar services for any third party; (iii) make any copies of the Mobile Software; (iv) remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Mobile Software, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the Mobile Software, or features that enforce limitations on use of the Mobile Software; or (v) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the Mobile Software. You acknowledge that Speevr may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the Mobile Software, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Mobile Software that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will apply to all such upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Software is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Software or any copy thereof, and Speevr or its third-party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Software (and any copy thereof).
Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void. Speevr reserves all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement. If the Mobile Software is being acquired on behalf of the United States Government, then the following provision applies. The Mobile Software will be deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” respectively, pursuant to DFAR Section 227.7202 and FAR Section 12.212, as applicable. Any use, reproduction, release, performance, display or disclosure of the Service and any accompanying documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by these Terms of Service and is prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by these Terms of Service. The Mobile Software originates in the United States, and is subject to United States export laws and regulations. The Mobile Software may not be exported or re-exported to certain countries or those persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports from the United States. In addition, the Mobile Software may be subject to the import and export laws of other countries. You agree to comply with all United States and foreign laws related to use of the Mobile Software and Speevr Service.
- Mobile Application Marketplaces. The following applies to any Mobile Software you acquire from the iTunes Store, the Android Market, or any other similar marketplace for mobile applications (“Sourced Mobile Software”): You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between you and Speevr, not the proprietor of such marketplace (each a “Proprietor”), and that Proprietor has no responsibility for the Sourced Mobile Software or content thereof. Your use of the Sourced Mobile Software must comply with the applicable terms of service for the marketplace from which you downloaded the Sourced Mobile Software. You acknowledge that Proprietor has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Sourced Mobile Software. In the event of any failure of the Sourced Mobile Software to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Proprietor, and Proprietor will refund the purchase price for the Sourced Mobile Software to you; to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Proprietor will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Sourced Mobile Software, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by this Agreement and any law applicable to Speevr as provider of the software. You acknowledge that Proprietor is not responsible for addressing any claims of you or any third party relating to the Sourced Mobile Software or your possession and/or use of the Sourced Mobile Software, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Sourced Mobile Software fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation; and all such claims are governed solely by this Agreement and any law applicable to Speevr as provider of the software. You acknowledge that, in the event of any third-party claim that the Sourced Mobile Software or your possession and use of that Sourced Mobile Software infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Speevr, not Proprietor, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement. You and Speevr acknowledge and agree that Proprietor, and Proprietor’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement as relates to your license of the Sourced Mobile Software, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Proprietor will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement as relates to your license of the Sourced Mobile Software against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

- GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER
- Governing Law.You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Clara County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
- Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM Speevr. For any dispute with Speevr, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Speevr has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Speevr agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Speevr from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
- Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND Speevr ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
- Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Speevr to its successor or any entity acquiring all or substantially all of its assets. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
- Entire Agreement/Severability. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Speevr in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Speevr concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
- No Waiver. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Speevr’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
