7.4 Indemnification. By entering into these Terms and accessing or using the Services, you agree that you shall defend, indemnify and hold CIBO Entities harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred by CIBO Entities arising out of or in connection with: (a) your violation or breach of any term of these Terms or any applicable law or regulation; (b) your violation of any rights of any third party; (c) your access to or use of the Services, including any interaction with other users of the Services; (d) Your Content (e) your use of User Content that is not Your Content, or (f) your negligence or wilful misconduct.

8. ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
8.1 Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and CIBO Entities, you will first contact CIBO and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation, any court action.
8.2 Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver. After the informal dispute resolution process, any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of CIBO’s services and/or products, including the Services, will be resolved by arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the Claim. You and CIBO agree that any Claim will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. You agree that the arbitration shall be held in Boston, Massachusetts, unless the arbitrator shall determine that venue in such city is unreasonably burdensome, in which cause the arbitrator shall select a venue that is not unreasonably burdensome to both you and us. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis – class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to these Terms, you and CIBO are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and CIBO will have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative and non-class basis.
8.3 Costs of Arbitration. Payment for any and all reasonable JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the JAMS Rules. If the value of your claim does not exceed $10,000, CIBO will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose.
8.4 Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to info@cibotechnologies or to the U.S. mailing address listed in the “How to Contact Us” section of these Terms. The notice must be sent to CIBO within thirty (30) days of your registering to use the Services or agreeing to these Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, CIBO also will not be bound by them.
9. Additional Provisions
9.1 Updating These Terms. We may modify these Terms from time to time in which case we will update the “Last Revised” date at the top of these Terms. If we make changes that are material, we will use reasonable efforts to attempt to notify you, such as by email and/or by placing a prominent notice on the first page of the Website. However, it is your sole responsibility to review these Terms from time to time to view any such changes. The updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the updated Terms. Your continued access or use of the Services after the modifications have become effective will be deemed your acceptance of the modified Terms.
9.2 Termination of License and Your Account. If you breach any of the provisions of these Terms, all licenses granted by CIBO will terminate automatically. The term of the Personal License shall commence upon the earliest moment you access the Services, including downloading, installing or using the App, and shall terminate upon the earliest of: (i) your failing to comply with these Terms; (ii) CIBO terminating the Personal License in accordance with these Terms and (iii) your requesting CIBO permanently cancel your Account. Upon the termination of the Personal License, all rights and licenses granted to your hereunder, including the Personal License, shall immediately terminate and you shall cease to access and use the Services, and shall delete and permanently delete all copies of the App from any electronic device on which you have stored or installed it. Additionally, CIBO may suspend, disable, or delete your Account and/or the Services (or any part of the foregoing) with or without notice, for any or no reason. If CIBO deletes your Account for any suspected breach of these Terms by you, you are prohibited from re-registering for the Services under a different name. In the event of Account deletion for any reason, CIBO may, but is not obligated to, delete any of Your Content. CIBO shall not be responsible for the failure to delete or deletion of Your Content. All sections which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect subsequent to and notwithstanding any termination of these Terms by CIBO or you. Termination will not limit any of CIBO’s other rights or remedies at law or in equity.
9.3 Injunctive Relief. You agree that a breach of these Terms will cause irreparable injury to CIBO for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and CIBO shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or at law without a bond, other security or proof of damages.

Code § 1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112 Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.

You agree that you will not export or re-export, directly or indirectly, the Services and/or other information or materials provided by CIBO hereunder, to any country for which the United States or any other relevant jurisdiction requires any export license or other governmental approval at the time of export without first obtaining such license or approval. In particular, but without limitation, the Services may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or any country that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country, or (b) to anyone listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties, including the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List.

9.6 Miscellaneous. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms and the licenses granted hereunder may be assigned by CIBO but may not be assigned by you without the prior express written consent of CIBO. Any purported assignment, transfer or delegation without such consent will be null and void. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for reference only and shall not be read to have any legal effect. The Services are operated by us in the United States. Those who choose to access the Services from locations outside the United States do so at their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. We are not liable for any failure to comply with these Terms as a result of any factors or failures outside our reasonable control. These Terms are governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to conflict of laws rules, and the proper venue in which each action these Terms expressly permit to be brought in court will in all cases be the state and federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts. You and CIBO agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to the interpretation or construction of these Terms. These Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ successors and permitted assigns. These Terms and any policies or operating rules published on the Services constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and CIBO and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals whether oral or written, between you and CIBO (including, but not limited to, any prior version of these Terms).
