Tellie.TV Terms of Service
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT IS SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN SECTION 14 BELOW
By signing up for, installing and using the App in any manner, you agree to these Terms of Service and all other rules, policies, and procedures that may be published from time to time through the App by us, each of which is incorporated by reference.
Certain of the Services, may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time; your use of such Services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference, including without limitation the Tellie.TV Official Contest Rules applicable to the Contest you are entering.
These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Services, including, without limitation, users who are contributors of content, information, and other materials or services, registered or otherwise. ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION BELOW (SECTION 14), YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
You represent and warrant that you are an individual person at least 18 years old. If you are under age 18, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, use the Services. We reserve the right to verify your eligibility before, during, or after any contest. Employees, agents, and contractors (collectively, "employees") of Strimmerz and its respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotion agencies and any other entity involved in the development or administration of its contests, and all persons residing in the same households as employees, including but not limited to immediate family members, are not eligible to win prizes in contests while the employee is employed or engaged by Strimmerz and for six months following the employee’s last day working with or for Strimmerz. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time before the beginning of a Contest.
You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Service comply with all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to you. You are not permitted to access or use the Services from a location where these Terms of Service or use of the Services is prohibited, or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Services conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation. Further, the Services are offered only for your use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. You are not eligible for our contests if you violate any provision of these Terms of Service or the Tellie.TV Official Contest Rules, as determined in our sole discretion.
To sign up for the Services, we may require you to register for an Account on the Services (an “Account”) or another authentication mechanism (a “Third Party Account”). You must provide accurate and complete information and keep your Account information updated. If you provide any information that is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Strimmerz has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Strimmerz may deny you access to contests, areas requiring registration, disqualify you from contests, revoke Prizes, and/or terminate your Account, at its sole discretion.
You shall not: (a) select or use as a username a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; (b) use as a username a name subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization; or (c) use, as a username, a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.
You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and for keeping your Account password secure and login credentials. You may never use another person’s user Account or registration information for the Services without permission. You must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use the Services, breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. You should never publish, distribute or post login information for your Account. You can delete your Account, either directly or through a request made to one of our employees or affiliates.
You may establish, maintain, use and control only one Account on the Service. Each Account on the Service may only be owned, maintained, used and controlled by one individual. For the avoidance of doubt, users may not “co-own” accounts on the Service. If Strimmerz determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one Account, in addition to any other rights that Strimmerz may have, Strimmerz may suspend or terminate any or all of your accounts and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any Prizes.
Each year all winners over the previous year may be required to provide updated address and social security (or other tax identification number) details to Strimmerz. These details will be used to allow Strimmerz to comply with tax regulations and may be shared with appropriate tax authorities. You, not Strimmerz, are responsible for filing and paying applicable state and federal taxes on any winnings. Strimmerz does not provide tax advice, nor should any statements in this Agreement or on the Service be construed as tax advice.
We may offer bonuses to new users and for other marketing purposes, such as a referral program (“Referral Program”). Users may be able to earn Goods (as defined below) or other prizes (“Referral Program Rewards”) by inviting their eligible friends to register as new Strimmerz users (“Newly Referred Users”) using a unique referral code (“Referral Program Codes”). Certain Referral Program Rewards may be provided based upon the participation and performance of the Newly Referred Users. Referral Program Codes must be used for the intended audience and purposes, and may not be sold or transferred in any manner or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Strimmerz. Except as permitted by Strimmerz, Referral Program Rewards are non-transferrable, may not be resold, and are not redeemable for cash or other consideration. Strimmerz reserves the right to limit the number of Newly Referred Users a given user can earn Referral Program Rewards from. If a user fails to login to the App for 60 consecutive days, any Referral Program Rewards provided to that user will be considered forfeited and Strimmerz may, at its option and sole discretion, choose to remove the Referral Program Rewards from the user’s account. You agree we may change the terms and conditions of the Referral Program, terminate the Referral Program, or expire, deduct, limit, or modify your Referral Program Rewards at any time for any reason, including but not limited to, the event that Strimmerz determines or believes that your participation in the Referral Program or use or redemption of Referral Program Codes was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or otherwise in violation of these Terms. You can learn more about the Referral Program here.
You understand that all Content made available on the Service by a user (“User Content”), including but not limited to profile information and communications with other users, whether privately transmitted or made publicly available, is the sole responsibility of the person from which such User Content originated. You, not Strimmerz, are entirely responsible for all User Content that you upload, post, share, email, transmit, or otherwise make available via the Service. Under no circumstances will Strimmerz be liable in any way for any User Content.
You acknowledge that Strimmerz may or may not pre-screen User Content, but that Strimmerz and its designees have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, permanently delete, undelete, modify and/or move any User Content available via the Service. Without limiting the preceding, Strimmerz and its designees shall have the right to remove any User Content that violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable in Strimmerz's sole discretion. You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to User Content that you may consider to be offensive or objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use or disclosure of any User Content. You further acknowledge and agree that you bear the sole risk of reliance on any Content available on or through the Service.
With respect to User Content you submit or otherwise make available on or to the Service, you grant Strimmerz an irrevocable, fully sublicensable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such User Content (in whole or in part), and to incorporate such User Content into other works, in any format or medium now known or later developed. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Service. Strimmerz reserves the right but has no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other users.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, OTHER THAN ANY LICENSE GRANTED TO YOU BY THESE TERMS, YOU SHALL HAVE NO OWNERSHIP OR PROPERTY INTEREST IN ANY OF OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ACCOUNTS OR GOODS.

Through the App, you may be able to purchase (“In-App Purchases”), earn, be rewarded with, or otherwise procure certain virtual goods and items designed to enhance the performance of the Services (“Goods”) including, without limitation, items that permit you to marginally improve scores, gain a second chance, or virtual currencies. When you purchase Goods, you are doing so through either Apple iTunes service or the Google Play service, and by purchasing, you agree to their respective Terms and Conditions. (http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html; http://play.google.com/intl/en_us/about/play-terms.html). If you are unsure about your rights in purchases made through either service, you should check with your respective service before making a purchase.
All payment related requests should be directed to Apple or Google through their respective service, and are subject to their respective Terms and Conditions. We are not a party to any In-App Purchases. Termination and we have no obligation to, and cannot, provide refunds or credits. All sales of Goods are final. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, except as required by law.
You agree that Goods have no monetary value and cannot be exchanged for real money, real goods, or real services from us or anyone else. Goods are non-transferrable, may not be resold, and are not redeemable for cash or other consideration. You do not own Goods, but instead you purchase a limited, personal, revocable license to use them. Any balance of Goods does not reflect any stored value. The use of Goods within the Services may be limited as described in the applicable Tellie.TV Contest Official Rules. We reserve the right to control, regulate, change, remove, expire, limit, or modify any Goods at any time without any liability to you. If your Account is cancelled for any or no reason, you may forfeit any pending, current, or future Goods and any other forms of unredeemed value in or associated with your Account without prior notice to you.
We may revise the pricing for Goods offered through the Services at any time. We may limit the total amount of Goods that may be purchased at any one time, and/or limit the total amount of Goods that may be held in your Account in the aggregate. You are only allowed to obtain Goods from us or our authorized partners through the Services, and not in any other way.
All payments required by these Terms are stated exclusive of all taxes, duties, levies, imposts, fines or similar governmental assessments, including sales and use taxes, value-added taxes, goods and services taxes, excise, business, service, and similar transactional taxes imposed by any jurisdiction and the interest and penalties thereon, excluding taxes based on Eventbrite’s net income (collectively, “Taxes”). You shall be responsible for and bear Taxes associated with its purchase of, payment for, access to or use of the Services. Taxes shall not be deducted from the payments to Strimmerz, except as required by law, in which case you shall increase the amount payable as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings, Strimmerz receives and retains (free from any Tax liability) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made.
7. Subscription Plans and Payments
We may offer subscription plans that automatically renew each month or year (“Tellie Subscriptions”). By signing up for a Tellie Subscription and providing us with your payment account information, you are signing up to an auto-renewing subscription requiring recurring payments and agree to pay the then-current applicable fee listed in the agreement unless and until you cancel. All subscription fees and charges are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
If you sign up for the monthly subscription, you will be charged your first monthly subscription fee and any applicable taxes on the date you purchase your subscription or, if your subscription includes a free trial, on the day after your free trial ends. Your subscription will automatically continue on a monthly basis, and you will continue to be charged on a monthly basis at the then-current price (including any applicable taxes), until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. If you sign up for the yearly subscription, you will be charged your first upfront, non-refundable yearly subscription fee and any applicable taxes on the date you purchase your subscription or, if your subscription includes a free trial, on the day after your free trial ends. Your subscription will automatically continue on a yearly basis at the then-current price (including any applicable taxes), and you will continue to be charged on a yearly basis until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You can find your monthly and/or yearly subscription billing date in your account settings.
If your subscription includes a free trial, you will not be charged the applicable fee during your free trial. To obtain the free trial you will be required to provide a credit card in order to ensure uninterrupted access to your Tellie Subscription and continued use after the expiration of the free trial. Upon completion of your free trial, your subscription will automatically convert into a paid Tellie Subscription and your payment method will be charged the applicable fee unless you have cancelled your Tellie Subscription. You may cancel your Tellie Subscription as described below. You may not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended or that the paying portion of your Tellie Subscription has begun. You are only permitted one free trial. If your Tellie Subscription is ever terminated for any reason, and you purchase an additional Tellie Subscription, you shall not be eligible for a free trial on any subsequent Tellie Subscriptions.
If you signed up with a promotion, your renewal rate may be higher than your initial rate. Please refer to your account settings page within the App to review details about the renewal amount and the date of the next renewal.
Your Tellie Subscription includes one or more additional features as compared to the standard Tellie account. From time to time, Strimmerz may choose in its sole discretion to add, modify, or remove benefits and features from the Tellie Subscription. Strimmerz does not represent or warrant that particular benefits or features will be offered indefinitely and reserves the right to change the subscription terms or fees associated with the Tellie Subscription. If the pricing for your subscription increases, we will notify you, and provide you an opportunity to change your subscription before applying those changes to your account or charging your payment details in connection with an automatic renewal. The notification will inform you of how long you have to change your subscription before the changes become effective. Your continued use of your Tellie Subscription after the changes become effective will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you do not wish to continue subscribing with the new fees or features, you may cancel your subscription. If you accept the new subscription, its terms and conditions will apply for that renewal and all renewals going forward.
You may cancel your subscription at any time in your account settings or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by following your AppStore procedures to cancel. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid billing of the next periodic subscription fees to your account. However, if you cancel a pre-paid yearly or monthly subscription, you will not receive any refund. If you cancel your monthly or yearly subscription, you will be able to use your Tellie Subscription for the remainder of your pre-paid subscription term.
We reserve the right to suspend, disable, cancel or terminate your Tellie Subscription or convert your Tellie Subscription account to a standard account at our discretion and without any notice. If we cancel your yearly subscription, we will give you a prorated refund based on the amount of time remaining in your pre-paid subscription; provided, however, that we will not be obligated to grant you a refund if we terminate your account or your subscription because we determine, in our sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the Service violates these Terms or has harmed another user.
If upon termination of your Tellie Subscription you possess a quantity of a Goods greater than the amount allowed for a non-Tellie Subscription account, you may keep those Goods, but once used, you will not be permitted to possess a quantity greater than the permitted amount.
By subscribing to a Tellie Subscription, you consent to receive notifications from Strimmerz electronically. You agree that all notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing or be delivered in a particular manner and Subscriber agrees to keep Subscriber’s email address information current.

14. ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER–IMPORTANT–PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
14.1. Binding Arbitration
14.1.1. Either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including their formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the JAMS in accordance with the provisions of its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
14.1.2. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
14.1.3. The Commercial Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1.800.352.5267. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Strimmerz will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Strimmerz will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases. The parties understand that absent this mandatory provision; they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
14.2.1. If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. You and Strimmerz agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Los Angeles County, California, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
14.3. Class Action Waiver
14.3.1. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
14.4. Exception–Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small-Claims Court Claims
14.4.1. Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small-claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
14.5. 30-Day Right to Opt Out
14.5.1. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: ADDRESS. The notice must be sent within 30 days of 04/20/2018 or your first use of the Service, whichever is later.
