We may own the Content, or portions of the Content may be made available to us through arrangements that we have with third parties. We do not guarantee that any Content you access on or through the Site is or will continue to be accurate. The Content is protected by United States and foreign intellectual property laws. Unauthorized use of the Content may result in violation of copyright, trademark, and other laws. You have no rights in or to the Content, and you will not use, copy or display the Content, including but not limited to use of framing or mirrors, except as permitted under this Agreement. No other use is permitted without our prior written consent. You must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the original Content on any copy you make of the Content. You may not sell, transfer, assign, license, sublicense, or modify the Content or reproduce, display, publicly perform, make a derivative version of, distribute, or otherwise use the Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose. The use or posting of any of the Content on any other website or in a networked computer environment for any purpose is expressly prohibited. If you violate any part of this Agreement, your right to access and/or use the Content and Site shall automatically terminate and you shall immediately destroy any copies you have made of the Content.
4.2 The trademarks, service marks, and logos of Verium (the “Verium Trademarks”) used and displayed in connection with the Services are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of Verium. Other company, product, and service names located on the Site or otherwise used in connection with the Services may be trademarks or service marks owned by third parties (the “Third Party Trademarks”, and, collectively with the Verium Trademarks, the “Trademarks”). Nothing on the Site, in the Services or in this Agreement should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed on the Site or otherwise used in connection with the Services without our prior written consent specific for each such use. The Trademarks may not be used to disparage us or any applicable third party, our or the applicable third party’s products or services, or in any manner (using commercially reasonable judgment) that may damage any goodwill in the Trademarks. Use of any Verium Trademarks as part of a link to or from any website is prohibited without our prior written consent. All goodwill generated from the use of any Verium Trademark shall inure to our benefit.

5. Use of Services
5.1 Upon purchase of Services, subject to all limitations and restrictions contained herein, Verium grants you a term subscription, software as a service (‘SaaS’), nonexclusive, and nontransferable right to access and operate the corresponding Applications (“Application” means Verium’s proprietary software that is licensed to you).
5.2 You shall ensure that the number of active Users of Applications is equal to or less than the number of User Accounts for which you have subscribed. You are responsible for ensuring that access to User Accounts is not shared. Only one individual may authenticate to one User Account. Hardware or software uses to pool connections, reroute information, or reduce the number of users that directly access or use the Software (sometimes referred to as "multiplexing" or "pooling"), does not reduce the number of licenses or active User Accounts you need. A “User Account” subscription license means that the Application licensed may be used by a limited number of individual users, each identified by a unique user id. You may designate different User Accounts at any time without notice to Verium so long as the permitted number of User Accounts is not exceeded.
5.3 In no event will you disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer the Application or permit others to do so. Disassembling, decompiling, and reverse engineering include, without limitation: (i) converting the Application from a machine-readable form into a human-readable form; (ii) disassembling or decompiling the Application by using any means or methods to translate machine-dependent or machine-independent object code into the original human-readable source code or any approximation thereof; (iii) examining the machine-readable object code that controls the Application’s operation and creating the original source code or any approximation thereof by, for example, studying the Application’s behavior in response to a variety of inputs; or (iv) performing any other activity related to the Application that could be construed to be reverse engineering, disassembling, or decompiling. To the extent any such activity may be permitted pursuant to written agreement, the results thereof will be deemed Confidential Information subject to the requirements of these SaaS Terms.
5.4 “Authorized Users” will only consist of: (i) employees of you, and (ii) third party contractors of you who do not compete with Verium (“Permitted Contractors”). You are fully liable for the acts and omissions of Permitted Contractors under this Agreement.
5.5 The Services may contain third party software that requires notices and/or additional terms and conditions. Such required third party software notices and/or additional terms and conditions may be requested from Service Provider and are made a part of and incorporated by reference into this Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you are also accepting the additional terms and conditions, if any, set forth therein.
5.6 By using our Services, you irrevocably acknowledges that, subject to the licenses granted herein, you have no ownership interest in the Services, Software, or any other materials provided to you. Verium owns all right, title, and interest in such Software and materials, subject to any limitations associated with intellectual property rights of third parties. Verium reserves all rights not specifically granted herein.
6. Third Party Sites.
6.1 The Site may contain links to third party websites, services or other resources on the Internet, including but not limited to our sponsors, and other websites, services or resources may contain links to the Site (“External Sites”). These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by us of the content on such External Sites. The content of such External Sites is developed and provided by others. You should contact the site administrator for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or any content located on such External Sites. We are not responsible for the content of any linked External Sites and do not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of any materials on such External Sites. You should take precautions when downloading files from all websites to protect your computer from viruses and other destructive programs. If you decide to access any External Sites, you do so at your own risk. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available on or through any External Sites.
6.2 We may participate in affiliate marketing and may allow affiliate links to be encoded on some of our pages. This means that we may earn a commission if/when you click on or make purchases via affiliate links.
7. IP Infringement.
7.1 We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should notify us of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below. We will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Verium’s Copyright Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject line: “Takedown Request”). You may also contact us by mail at: 1307 Allenford Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90049.

8. Payments; Ordering & Availability; Billing and Continuous Subscription Services.
8.1 You agree to provide accurate and up-to-date payment information at the time you order any Product. We have contracted with a third-party payment processor to facilitate purchases made on the Site. When you make a purchase through the Site, you will provide your payment details and any additional information required to complete your order directly to our third-party payment processor. You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by our payment processor and your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. For your protection, our payment processor uses various fraud prevention protocols and industry standard verification systems to reduce fraud and you authorize it to verify and authenticate your payment information. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this. In some jurisdictions, our payment processor may use third parties under strict confidentiality and data protection requirements for the purposes of payment processing services.
8.2 You agree to have sufficient funds or credit available upon placement of any such order to ensure that the purchase price will be collectible by us. After you place your order, we will send you a confirmation email (the “Order Confirmation”). We strive to provide accurate pricing information regarding the Products available on the Site. We cannot, however, insure against pricing errors. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a Product whose price was incorrectly posted on the Site as a result of an error. If this occurs, we will notify you by email.
8.3 Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery; and (b) value added tax and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable. You agree to pay for taxes, shipping or carriage of the Products as such costs are specified by us when you submit your order.
8.4 Some of the Services that we offer, may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. You will have the ability to specify how regularly you would like to order any auto-replacing products. BY CHOOSING A RECURRING PAYMENT PLAN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) VERIUM (OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A RECURRING BASIS (E.G., MONTHLY) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR STOP PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SITE OR PRODUCTS. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING US AT TEAM@VERIUM.DEV. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ORDER PROCESSED PRIOR TO THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. All recurring payments are fully earned upon payment.
8.5 We attempt to provide accurate descriptions of Products. We do not warrant, however, that the descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.
9.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances and except in the case of pre-orders.
9.2 Your order will be delivered to the e-mail address that you specify when placing your order. Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different e-mail addresses.
10. Returns and Exchanges.
10.1 ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
11. Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer of Warranties.
11.1 EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY US IN WRITING, VERIUM, OUR AFFILIATES, AND OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, OR LICENSORS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “VERIUM PARTIES“) MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE CONTENT OR THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE SITE’S AND SERVICE’S ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS OR RELIABILITY. THE VERIUM PARTIES SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO LIABILITY FOR THE TRUTH, ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE CONTENT OR THE SITE OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION CONVEYED TO THE USER OR FOR ERRORS, MISTAKES OR OMISSIONS THEREIN OR FOR ANY DELAYS OR INTERRUPTIONS OF THE DATA OR INFORMATION STREAM FROM WHATEVER CAUSE. YOU AGREE THAT YOU USE THE SERVICES AND THE CONTENT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
11.2 THE VERIUM PARTIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SITE WILL OPERATE ERROR FREE OR THAT THE SITE, ITS SERVERS, OR THE CONTENT ARE FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES OR SIMILAR CONTAMINATION OR DESTRUCTIVE FEATURES. IF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THE CONTENT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, NO VERIUM PARTY SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.
11.3 EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY US IN WRITING, THE CONTENT AND THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. THE VERIUM PARTIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTIES RIGHTS, AND FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
11.4 IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY VERIUM PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF SUCH VERIUM PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF (IN THE AGGREGATE) $500.00.
11.5 Some jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, THE LIABILITY OF THE VERIUM PARTIES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS AFFECTS ANY LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES YOU HAVE UNDER LOCAL LAW.
12.1 To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Verium Parties from and against any claims, actions or demands, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from your breach of this Agreement, any User Content or Feedback you provide, or your access to, use or misuse of the Content or the Services. We shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit, or proceeding that triggers this indemnification obligation, and you agree to do the same by writing to the Verium Legal Department at email@example.com. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting our defense of such matter.
13. ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER—IMPORTANT—PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH VERIUM AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS SET FORTH BELOW. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IN ADDITION, ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
13.1 YOU AND VERIUM AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES IS PERSONAL TO YOU AND VERIUM AND THAT ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ACTION, AND WILL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
13.2 Except for small claims disputes in which you or Verium seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Verium seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Verium waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or our Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against Verium or relating in any way to the Services, you agree to first contact Verium and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Verium by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail addressed to Verium Legal Department, 1307 Allenford Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90049. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Verium cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Los Angeles County, California or may be conducted telephonically or via video conference for disputes alleging damages less than $500, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
13.3 You and Verium agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 13 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, this Agreement and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
13.4 The arbitrator, Verium, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
13.5 You and Verium agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Verium will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Verium, Verium will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Verium agree that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States sitting in Los Angeles County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
13.6 Any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Verium will not have the right to assert the claim. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 13 by emailing email@example.com. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with Section 18.1.
13.7 If any portion of this Section 13 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from this Agreement; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 13 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 13; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 13 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 13 will be enforceable.
14.1 We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate this Agreement and your access to all or any part of the Site or the Content at any time and for any reason (including if we believe that you have engaged in any suspected fraudulent or abusive activity, or violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement) without prior notice or liability, including the right to reject any order you place for the purchase of Products, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your Account. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Services or the Content at any time without prior notice or liability. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of User Content, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, class action waivers and arbitration.
15. User Must Comply with Applicable Laws.
15.1 You are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction and for abiding by all applicable local, state, provincial, national and international laws and regulations.
15.2 The United States controls the export of products and information. You expressly agree to comply with such restrictions and not to export or re-export any of the Content to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws. By downloading the Content, you are expressly agreeing that you are not in a country where such export is prohibited or are a person or entity for which such export is prohibited. You are solely responsible for compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction regarding the import, export, or re-export of the Content.
16. Transfer and Processing of Personal Data.
16.1 In order for us to provide the Services, you agree that we may process, transfer and store information about you in the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
17. U.S. Government Restricted Rights.
17.1 The Content is provided with “RESTRICTED RIGHTS.” Use, duplication, or disclosure by the Government is subject to the restrictions contained in 48 CFR 52.227-19 and 48 CFR 252.227-7013 et seq. or its successor. Use of the Services or Content by the Government constitutes acknowledgement of our proprietary rights in the Services and Content.
18.1 This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. Any dispute between you and Verium that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in state and federal courts sitting in the City of Los Angeles in the State of California. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by any court having 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. Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation. Any information you submit to or provide through the Site might be publicly accessible, and you should protect important and private information. We are not liable for protection of privacy of email or other information transferred through the Internet or any other network that you may use.
18.2 Except as expressly agreed by us and you, this Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us and you with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between us and you with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement is personal to you, and is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with our prior written consent. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of this Agreement and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices under this Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service. Electronic notices should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
