The Site and Services may contain links to other websites, or allow others to send you such links.

You should always read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of a third-party website before using it.

Disclaimer and Limitations on Our Liability

 

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN THIS AGREEMENT, SCHAFHUND PROVIDES SITE AND SERVICES, THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING THE DATA GENERATED BY THE PRODUCT, ON AN “AS IS, AS AVAILABLE AND WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS, AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SCHAFHUND AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS (REFERRED TO COLLECTIVELY AS “AFFILIATES”) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIEDAND CONDITIONS REGARDING THE PRODUCT, SUCH DATA, OR THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING. SCHAFHUND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, TITLE, COMPATIBILITY, SECURITY, ACCURACY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT AND ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN. SCHAFHUND AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE AVAILABILITY OF ANY NETWORKS OR COMMUNICATIONS LINES OR FUNCTIONING OF ANY MOBILE PHONE OR DEVICE NECESSARY FOR THE SITE OR SERVICES, THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY RECOMMENDATIONS OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES). SCHAFHUND AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY: (a) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT OR ALERTS; (b) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM ACCESS TO, INABILITY TO ACCESS, USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR SERVICES; (c) ANY INTERRUPTION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SITE OR SERVICES; (d) ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY FUNCTIONALITY OR CONTENT POSTED, E-MAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES; (e) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SERVERS OR OF ANY PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION; OR (f) ANY COMPUTER VIRUSES OR MALICIOUS CODE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES. SCHAFHUND DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT THE SITE AND SERVICES MAY NOT BE COMPROMISED OR CIRCUMVENTED; THAT THE SITE AND SERVICES WILL PREVENT ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH; OR THAT THE SITE AND SERVICES WILL IN ALL CASES PROVIDE ADEQUATE WARNING OR PROTECTION.  SCHAFHUND’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR DAMAGES FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT (EVEN IF A FUNDAMENTAL BREACH), TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY YOU FOR THE PARTICULAR PRODUCT INVOLVED. No agent or representative has the authority to create any warranty regarding the Site on behalf of SCHAFHUND.  SCHAFHUND reserves the right to change or discontinue at any time any aspect or feature of the Site. Because some states do not permit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.

 

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY MATERIAL OR INFORMATION DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE ARISING FROM DOING SO. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM SCHAFHUND OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE IN THESE TERMS.

 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER SCHAFHUND NOR ITS AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SITE OR SERVICES OR THESE TERMS.

 

YOU USE THE SITE AND SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent Schafhund may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of Schafhund’s liability will be the minimum permitted under such law.

 

Indemnification

 

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Schafhund and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, suppliers, cell phone carriers, including but not limited to, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Nextel, T-Mobile®, Boost, Alltel, Cellular One, Dobson, Virgin Mobile USA and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, and fees of any kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal costs), arising from or relating to: (a) any information (including your User Content or any other content) that you or anyone using your account submit, post, or transmit on or through the Site or Services; (b) the use of the Site or Services by you or anyone using your account; (c) the violation of these Terms by you or anyone using your account; or (d) the violation of any rights of any third party, including intellectual property, privacy, publicity, or other proprietary rights by you or anyone using your account. Schafhund reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. If we do assume the defense of such a matter, you will reasonably cooperate with Schafhund in such defense.

 

Arbitration

 

By accessing or using the Site or Services, you agree: (i) that any and all disputes you may have with, or claims you may have against Schafhund or its Affiliates relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with (a) the Site or Services, (b) these Terms, or (c) the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (a “Claim”), will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may be required by applicable law.

If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Schafhund will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.

 

This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and Schafhund also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and Schafhund retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms of Use.

 

Neither you nor Schafhund may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Schafhund’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.

THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR Schafhund WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section will continue in full force and effect. This Section of these Terms will survive the termination of your relationship with Schafhund.

 

Export Control

 

Schafhund controls and operates the Site and Services from its headquarters in the United States and makes no representation that the Site and Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. You are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws including but not limited to the export and import regulations of other countries. You acknowledge and agree that the data and any other materials made available from the Product may be subject to U.S. and foreign Export Administration Laws and Regulations.

 

Trademarks

 

Schafhund, iCU, iCU Report-it are trademarks of Schafhund, LLC and are protected by the trademark laws of the United States, individual States within the United States, and other countries, international conventions, and other applicable laws. Other trademarks may appear on the Site with permission from their respective owners. Any unauthorized use of trademarks appearing on the Site may constitute trademark infringement, which could subject the user to substantial civil penalties.

 

Other Provisions

Under no circumstances will Schafhund be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control.

 

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of laws rules or provisions.

 

You agree that any action of whatever nature arising from or relating to these Terms, the Site, or any Services will be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California. You consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of any such action.

 

If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions.

 

The failure of Schafhund to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent Schafhund from enforcing such right or provision in the future.

 

We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, a sale of assets, or by operation of law.

 

Privacy

 

To understand our privacy practices, please review our privacy policy that also governs your visit to our Site and Services. A complete statement of our privacy policy can be found at: Schafhund Privacy Policy

 

Changes to these Terms

We may change these Terms from time to time. If we change these Terms, we will inform you by posting the revised Terms on the Site.
