PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING OR USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE.

 

These Website Terms of Use (the “Terms of Use”) apply to your access to, and use of, all or any part of the Group Mobile Int’l LLC (together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, “Group Mobile”) website, www.groupmobile.com, and all other Website, mobile Website, services, applications, platforms, and tools where these Terms of Use appear or to which they are linked (collectively, the “Website”). These Terms of use do not alter in any way the terms and conditions of any other agreement you may have with Group Mobile for products, services, or otherwise. This agreement contains disclaimers and other provisions that limit our liability to you.

 

In the event that there is any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms of Use and any other terms of use that appear on the Website, these Terms of Use will govern. However, if you navigate away from the Website to a third party site, you may be subject to alternative terms and conditions of use, as may be specified on such site, which will govern your use of that site.

 

While we make reasonable efforts to provide accurate and timely information about Group Mobile on the Website, you should not assume that the information is always up to date, or that the Website contains all of the relevant information available about Group Mobile.

 

Group Mobile reserves the right to change or modify these Terms of Use or any policy or guideline of the Website, at any time and in its sole discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms of Use, we will inform you by posting a notice on the Website. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions to the Website, and you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your continued use of the Website will confirm your acceptance of such changes or modifications; therefore, you should frequently review these Terms of Use and applicable policies to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Website. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you must stop using the Website.

 

You agree to use the Website only for purposes that are permitted by these Terms of Use, and any applicable law, regulation, or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions.

Restrictions on Use

 

The Website may include interactive areas in which you or other registered users may create, post, send, or store messages, materials, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, video, graphics, applications, tags, code, links, or other items or materials on the Website (“User Content”). By using the Website, you agree not to post, upload, transmit, distribute, store, create, or otherwise publish through the Website any of the following:

 

  1. Unless specifically requested by Group Mobile, any “sensitive” personally identifiable information about yourself or another person (including, but not limited to, information that relates to health or medical conditions, social security numbers, credit cards, bank accounts, or other financial information, other information concerning trade union membership, sex life, political opinions, criminal charges or convictions, religious beliefs, racial or ethnic origin, or other sensitive matters);

 

  1. User Content that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent, otherwise objectionable, or which threatens our relationships with our employees, partners, customers, or suppliers;

 

  1. User Content that may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party;

 

  1. User Content that impersonates any person or entity or otherwise misrepresents your identity or affiliation with another person or entity;

 

  1. Spam, direct marketing communications, or any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, or other forms of solicitation or commercial content;

 

  1. User Content that constitutes, encourages, or provides instructions for a criminal offense, violates the rights of any party, or that creates liability or violates any applicable local, state, national, or international law;

 

  1. Viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, Easter eggs, or any other harmful, disruptive, or destructive files; and

 

  1. User Content that violates these Terms of Use, or, in the sole judgment or Group Mobile, is objectionable, restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Website, or which damages the image or rights of Group Mobile, other users, or third parties;

 

You further agree not to (i) use technology or other means to access Group Mobile or the Website or Site Materials that is not authorized by Group Mobile, (ii) use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers,” to access Group Mobile or the Website or Site Materials, (iii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to Group Mobile computer networks or user accounts, or (iv) attempt to damage, disable, overburden, or impair Group Mobile servers or networks.

 

Group Mobile does not control, take responsibility for, or assume liability for any User Content posted, stored, or uploaded by you or any third party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is Group Mobile liable for any user conduct or any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography, or profanity you may encounter. The interactive areas of the Website are generally designed as open and public community areas for connecting and sharing with other people. When you participate in these areas, you understand that certain information and content you choose to post may be displayed publicly. You are solely responsible for your use of the Website and agree to use the interactive areas at your own risk.

 

If you become aware of User Content that you believe violates these Terms of Use (with the exception of copyright infringement, which is addressed in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice section of these Terms of Use), you may report it by emailing legal@groupmobile.com. Enforcement of these Terms of Use, however, is solely in our discretion, and absence of enforcement in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the Terms of Use in other instances. In addition, these Terms of Use do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Website will not contain any content that is prohibited by these Terms of Use. Although Group Mobile has no obligation to screen, edit, or monitor any of the User Content posted on the Website, Group Mobile reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen, or edit any User Content on the Website at any time and for any reason without notice. You are solely responsible for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Website at your sole cost and expense.

Limited Warranty

 

YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, ITS CONTENT, AND ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEBSITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE WEBSITE, ITS CONTENT, AND ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEBSITE ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. NEITHER GROUP MOBILE NOR ANY PERSON ASSOCIATED WITH GROUP MOBILE MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE COMPLETENESS, SECURITY, RELIABILITY, QUALITY, ACCURACY, OR AVAILABILITY OF THE WEBSITE.

Limitation on Liability

 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Group Mobile and its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, or agents shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of income, profits, goodwill, data, contracts, use of money, or loss of damage arising from or connected in any way to business interruption, whether in tort (including, without limitation, negligence), contract or otherwise, arising out of or in connection with the use of or inability to use the Website, the content or the materials contained in or accessed through the Website, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from reliance on a user on any information obtained from Group Mobile, or that result from mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, errors, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of God, communications failure, theft, destruction, or unauthorized access to Group Mobile’s records, programs, or services. In no event shall the aggregate liability of Group Mobile, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive, or imputed), product liability, strict liability, or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of or inability to use the Website, exceed any compensation you pay, if any, to Group Mobile for access to or use of the Website. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability in contracts with consumers, so some or all of these limitations of liability may not apply to you.

 

 

Indemnification

 

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Group Mobile, its independent contractors, service providers, and consultants, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, parents, subsidiaries, and other affiliates, from and against all claims, suits, damages, costs, liabilities, penalties, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to (a) your use of the Website; (b) any User Content or Ideas that you provide to Group Mobile, (c) your violation of these Terms of Use, (d) your violation of any rights of any third party, or (e) your conduct in connection with the Website.

Group Mobile reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Website or any features or portions thereof without prior notice. You agree that Group Mobile will not be liable for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Website or any part thereof.

 

 

Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration

 

YOU AND GROUP MOBILE ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.

 

Any claim, dispute, or controversy, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims, between you and either Group Mobile, its agents, employees, successors, assigns, direct and indirect subsidiaries, or any third party providing any products or services to you in connection with your purchase arising from or relating in any way to your purchase of products, these Terms of Use, their interpretation, or the breach, termination, or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Use (including relationships with third parties who are not signatories to these Terms of Use), Group Mobile’s advertising, or any related purchase, shall be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision of the Terms of Use is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or JAMS (or a substitute forum if both are unavailable). Arbitration proceedings shall be governed by this provision and the applicable procedures of the selected arbitration administrator, including any applicable procedures for consumer-related disputes, in effect at the time the claim is filed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may assert claims in a small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms of Use.

 

You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR GROUP MOBILE SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration clause is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).

 

The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Information on AAA or JAMS and their applicable rules are available at the following numbers and URLs: American Arbitration Association, (800) 778-7879, www.adr.org; JAMS, (800) 352-5267, www.jamsadr.com.

 

Applicable Law and Jurisdiction

 

Access to and use of this Website and these Terms of Use are governed the Federal Arbitration Act, U.S. federal law and/or the laws of the State of New York, without resort to conflict of law provisions. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall have no applicability.

 

Group Mobile controls and operates this Website from its headquarters in the United States of America and makes no representation that these materials are appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you use this Website from other locations, you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.

 

Termination

 

Notwithstanding any of these Terms of Use, Group Mobile reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Website and to block or prevent your future access to and use of the Website. Group Mobile’s failure or delay in taking such actions does not constitute a waiver of its rights to enforce these Terms.

 

 

Severability

 

If any provision of these Terms of use shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
