By accessing or using our Services, you acknowledge and, as applicable, consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries.
Please read the following section carefully because it requires users who are U.S. residents to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Lyrebird Studio and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. Except for small claims disputes in which you or Lyrebird Studio seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Lyrebird Studio seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Lyrebird Studio 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. This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent [include name and address of registered agent here]. The arbitration will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or requests for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Lyrebird Studio will pay them for you. In addition, we will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conduced by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You may choose to have the arbitration conduced by telephone, based on written submissions or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Lyrebird Studio. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND LYREBİRD STUDİO HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Lyrebird Studio are instead electing that all disputes, claims or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited. Review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS. ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
30-Day Right to Opt-Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to: firstname.lastname@example.org, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any), the e-mail address you used to set up your account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
You and Lyrebird Studio agree that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States sitting in Santa Clara County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Severability. Except as provided in this Section 14 above, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Lyrebird Studio.
Modification, Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Lyrebird Studio makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Company at the following address: email@example.com.
This Agreement and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of California, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the Agreement. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in Santa Clara County, California.
By accessing or using the Services, you also consent to receive electronic communications from Lyrebird Studio (e.g., responses to your requests, questions and feedback, announcements, updates, and security alerts through a push notification or by posting notices on our Services). You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing.
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of this Agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from this Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The following terms apply if you install, access or use the Services on any device that contains the iOS mobile operating system (the “App”) developed by Apple Inc. (“Apple”).
Users may not download, use, export or re-export any materials or Content (including User Content and Lyrebird Studio Content) posted or submitted on or through the Lyrebird Studio Services or any software utilized or available in connection with the Lyrebird Studio Services in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including, without limitation, United States export laws, regulations and controls.
The Lyrebird Studio Services may include fee-based subscriptions giving you access to enhanced levels of Lyrebird Studio Services and additional Lyrebird Studio Content. A Lyrebird Studio Fee-Based Subscription is sold to an individual Lyrebird Studio user, and you may not share that subscription with anyone else. Payment of a fee to Lyrebird Studio for enhanced levels of Lyrebird Studio Services does not change the service license Lyrebird Studio grants to you under the Terms. You may access and make use of such enhanced Lyrebird Studio Services on up to ten devices on a single operating system.
The Lyrebird Studio Services that may be accessed after payment are subject to a payment of certain fees as determined by us from time to time, which shall be made via credit card or such other payment method as accepted or directed by Lyrebird Studio. All subscription fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise specified by Lyrebird Studio. The subscription fees are exclusive of all taxes, which shall be borne by you.
The paid subscription to these Lyrebird Studio Services is based on an auto-renewal basis. As such, your subscription will automatically renew upon the end of your applicable subscription period (e.g., annual basis) corresponding to the term of your subscription unless cancelled in accordance with the terms of your subscription. If your subscription renewal begins on a day not contained in a given month, then we will charge you on the last day of such month. You acknowledge and agree that the timing of when you are billed and the amount billed may vary due to free trials and other promotional offers, credits applied to your account, and changes in your subscription, and you hereby authorize us to charge you for the corresponding amounts. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your billing and payment information is correct to prevent your subscription from being cancelled. If we cannot charge your payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), and you have not cancelled your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and we will attempt to charge the payment method as you may update your payment method information. This may result in a change to the start of your next subscription period and may change the date on which you are billed for each period. We reserve the right to cancel your subscription if we are unable to successfully charge your payment method to renew your subscription. When your subscription ends, you will lose access to the Lyrebird Studio Services that require a subscription.
If we offer you a promotion or a promotional price for your subscription, the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed or made available to you when you select your subscription plan and agree to the Additional Terms that will be provided to you and describe the particular promotion for your selected subscription plan. In the case of promotional pricing, after your promotion ends, we will begin billing you for your subscription at the regular price after the promotion ends unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the promotion.
We reserve the right to change, modify or vary the price, package and features of the Lyrebird Studio subscription plans that we make available from time to time. If we change or modify the price and package of such subscription plans, we will provide you with advanced notice of the applicable changes or modifications. You may discontinue to use the Lyrebird Studio Services offered under a subscription plan and request the cancellation of your subscription to such Lyrebird Studio Services at any time. We will not be liable for reimbursing you for the cancellation of your Lyrebird Studio subscription.
You may cancel your subscription by accessing your account information and following the posted instructions for cancellation of your subscription. By cancelling your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. Upon cancellation of your subscription, you may continue to use the applicable Lyrebird Studio Services through the remainder of your subscription term, as well as any Content that you previously created or reproduced through use of such Lyrebird Studio Services as of the date of cancellation of your subscription, provided that such use must be in compliance with these Terms.
