Alohar Mobile Inc. Terms of Service
The Effective Date of This Agreement is June 5, 2013
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE COMMENCING YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED BY ALOHAR MOBILE INC. THESE TERMS SET FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR YOUR USE OF THESE SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND ALL RELATED FEATURES, CONTENT, AND APPLICATIONS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE PLACEME APPLICATION, PLACEUS APPLICATION, AND SDK.
Introduction; Your Agreement To These Terms of Service.
The terms and conditions below (the "Terms") govern your access to and use of the Alohar Mobile Inc. websites, software, mobile applications (including but not limited to Placeme and PlaceUs), products, SDK and services (collectively, the "Service"), excluding any services provided to you by us under a separate written agreement.
These Terms constitute a legal agreement between you and us. You may terminate the prospective application of these Terms at any time by uninstalling the Software (if any), cancelling your account with us, and no longer accessing our Service. Some provisions of these Terms will nevertheless remain in effect after such termination.

If you are between the age of 13 and 18 years old, you may use the Service but only under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms of Service.

Disputes and Mandatory Arbitration Clause.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE. IT PROVIDES THAT YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO SETTLE ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THROUGH ARBITRATION, EVEN IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS BEFORE A JURY. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL THE DECISION, MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION OR MAY BE MORE LIMITED.
a. The Federal Arbitration Act applies to these Terms. Except as otherwise set forth herein, a ny dispute, controversy or claim between us, regardless of whether the legal theory is based on these Terms, another common law theory, a statute or another ground, will be settled by neutral arbitrators before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). You can also bring any issues you may have to the attention of federal, state, or local government agencies and they can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
This arbitration provision is not mandatory in the event of claims below the applicable small claims limit in your jurisdiction. You or we may bring any such small claims matters outside of the arbitration setting, provided they are not brought in a court of general jurisdiction. This arbitration provision is also not mandatory to actions and claims by us to protect or redress the alleged misuse of our intellectual property, (including but not limited to those relating to alleged trademark infringement or theft of trade secrets) or in which we are seeking injunctive relief.
b. Forum Selection and Applicable Procedure. Unless you and us agree otherwise, the arbitration will take place in Santa Clara County, California. For claims over $10,000 the AAA's Wireless Industry Arbitration ("WIA") rules will apply. In large/complex cases under the WIA rules, the arbitrators must apply the Federal Rules of Evidence and a party may have the award reviewed by a panel of three new arbitrators. For claims of $10,000 or less, the complaining party can choose either the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes or individual action in small claims court. You can obtain procedures, rules and fee information from the AAA or from us. Each of us may be required to exchange relevant evidence in advance. For claims of $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing. To initiate arbitration under these Terms, contact the AAA, which will provide the necessary forms for you to submit. In the case of a conflict between any arbitration rules and these Terms, these Terms govern.
c. NO CLASS ARBITRATION. THESE TERMS DO NOT PERMIT CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF AAA OR WIA PROCEDURES OR RULES WOULD. The arbitrator may award monetary or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. IF THIS PROHIBITION ON CLASS ARBITRATIONS IS DEEMED UNENFORCEABLE UNDER APPLICABLE STATE LAW, THEN THE ENTIRE ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL BE DEEMED UNENFORCEABLE AND ANY CLASS CLAIMS SHALL BE BROUGHT AND ADJUDICATED IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. IN NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL CLASS CLAIMS BE BROUGHT OR ADJUDICATED IN ARBITRATION.
d. Claim Notices. If you have or believe you have a claim or grievance against us that arises from or relates to the Service, the Software, the services, your account, any prior account you had with us, your application, or the enforceability of these Terms, before initiating, joining, or participating in any lawsuit, arbitration, or other legal proceeding, you shall give us: (1) a written notice of the claim (referred to below as a "Claim Notice"), at least 30 days before initiating any such proceeding, explaining in reasonable detail the nature of the claim and any supporting facts; and (2) a reasonable good faith opportunity and not less than 30 days' time to work with you to resolve the claim and thereby avoid the need for a lawsuit, arbitration, or other legal proceeding. Any Claim Notice directed to us shall be sent to:
Alohar Mobile Inc.
Attn: Legal Department
1032 Elwell Court, Suite #111
Palo Alto, California 94303
e. Use of Arbitration Award or Judgments in Subsequent Cases. An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it only applies to the arbitration in which it was awarded and cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself.
a. U.S. Government Restricted Rights.
The Software, mobile application, and Service are provided with Restricted Rights. Federal, state and local governments agree to the terms and conditions of this commercial license.
b. No agency.
