You must notify Company immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your mobile phone. Although Company will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your mobile phone, you may be liable for the losses of Company or others due to such unauthorized use.

6. Costs. The Service is free, but message and data rates may apply from your carrier. Check your mobile plan and contact your mobile carrier for details. You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all mobile devices and other equipment and software, and all internet service provider, mobile service, and other services needed to access and use the Service. You are solely responsible for all charges related to them, including charges from your mobile carrier.
7. Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THE COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF THE COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM ANY ASPECT OF YOUR USE OF THE COMPANY’S WEBSITE OR THE SERVICE, WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARISE FROM USE OR MISUSE OF THE COMPANY’S SERVICE, FROM INABILITY TO USE THE COMPANY’S SERVICE, OR THE INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, MODIFICATION, ALTERATION, OR TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE. SUCH LIMITATION SHALL ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY REASON OF OTHER SERVICES OR PRODUCTS RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE OR ANY LINKS ON THE COMPANY’S WEBSITE, AS WELL AS BY REASON OF ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE OR ANY LINKS ON THE COMPANY’S WEBSITE. THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
8. Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the Service shall be settled by binding arbitration. You and Company waive the right to go to court and agree to submit any claims to arbitration. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. Any claim that all or part of this class action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. This arbitration provision is governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended. However, we both retain the right to pursue in a small claims court any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class) basis. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim must be filed within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules issued in Sept. 2014. Please contact the AAA for a copy of the rules. For your convenience, arbitration may be conducted in the federal district where you reside. It may be held by telephone or through written submissions if both you and Company agree. Any award rendered shall include a written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA. This provision survives termination of your subscription or relationship with Company. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable, then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void.
9. Changes to Terms. Our Terms may be modified and/or we may cease offering the Service at any time. YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF NEW TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THE WEBSITE (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER AT OUR SOLE DISCRETION), AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE NEW TERMS.
10. General. No waiver of any of the provisions of these Terms shall be deemed or shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of these Terms, which shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. These Terms survive termination of your subscription or relationship with Company. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Company and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Company. These Terms and your relationship with Company shall be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
