A Note About Your Health
If you or anyone in your family has ever had symptoms related to epilepsy (such as, seizures or loss of consciousness) or headaches when exposed to flashing lights or contrasting visual patterns, consult your doctor prior to using the Game(s). Immediately cease using the Game(s) if you experience any symptoms of dizziness, blurred vision, headaches, eye or muscle twitches, loss of consciousness, disorientation, any involuntary movement or convulsion. If you elect to use the Game(s), you should take certain standard health and safety precautions, such as avoiding using the Game(s) when tired, taking 10 to 15 minute breaks every hour, sitting a reasonable distance from the screen, and using the Game(s) in a well-lit environment.
Upon a request by Jolly Bear, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Jolly Bear and its affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims, losses, costs and expenses, including attorney's fees that arise from (a) your use of, or activities in connection with the Site and/or the Game(s); and (b) any violation of the Agreement by you. Jolly Bear reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with Jolly Bear in asserting any available defenses.
When you use the Game(s)s through certain platforms, such as Pogo.com, you may have the opportunity to purchase virtual in-Game(s) fictional currencies ("VC") through that third party platform which may be purchased with real world currency and can then be exchanged within the Game(s) for limited license right(s) to use a feature of the Game(s) or virtual item in the Game(s). VC and/or virtual items have no real value, and are not transferable or redeemable for any sum of real world money or monetary value from Jolly Bear at any time. You agree that Jolly Bear has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate such VC and/or virtual items as it sees fit in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that Jolly Bear will have no liability to you based on its exercise of such rights. VC and/or virtual items cannot be used for any kind of wagering, betting or gambling either within or outside of our Game(s). You acknowledge that at no time do you own, nor have any right to, the intellectual property affiliated with VC. You are hereby prohibited from reselling or distributing VC outside of the Game(s) without the expressed written consent of Jolly Bear.
Your purchases of VC are non-refundable and are made at your own risk. If you have any billing problem or question, please contact the third party platform through which you made the purchase. If your account is disabled your use of any VC or virtual items will not be returned, nor will any cash or any VC that you used to purchase such items be refunded.
Third Party Content and Ads
Certain information, content and advertisements displayed on or within the Site and/or the Game(s) may be provided by third parties ("Third Party Content"). The Third Party Content is, in each case, the copyrighted and/or trademarked work of the creator/licensor. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to download, cache, reproduce, modify, display (except as set forth in this paragraph), edit, alter or enhance any of the Third Party Content in any manner unless you have permission from the owner of the Third Party Content or as otherwise expressly authorized in these Terms. Jolly Bear is not responsible for the content or nature of any Third Party Content.
Although the Site and/or the Game(s) may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that the Site, the Game(s) or related materials are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing them from territories where the content is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site and/or the Game(s) from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. Any offer and/or information made in connection with the Site and/or the Game(s) is void where prohibited. Without limiting the foregoing, the Game(s) may not be exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national resident of) any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person's List or Entity List. By accessing and using the Site and/or the Game(s), you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under control of, or a national resident of any such country or on any such list.
Termination And Survivability Of Terms
The Agreement set forth herein continues to remain in full force and effect until such time as terminated by either party. You agree and acknowledge that you are not entitled to any refund for any amounts you paid prior to any termination. You retain full discretion to end or terminate your account, if applicable, and discontinue use of the Site and/or the Game(s) at any time, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Without prejudice to any other rights of Jolly Bear, this Agreement shall terminate automatically if you fail to comply with its terms and conditions. Upon termination, you must destroy all copies of the Game(s), if any, and cease all use of the Game(s). Jolly Bear also reserves the right to terminate inactive Game(s) accounts. Jolly Bear may discontinue, either temporarily or permanently, server support for the Game(s). The provisions titled “Disclaimer of Warranties, “Limitation of Liability,” “Waiver,” “Indemnification,” “Miscellaneous,” and “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver” shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
Because Jolly Bear would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, you agree that Jolly Bear shall be entitled, without bond or other security or proof of damages, to take such action as may be required, including seeking an injunction and other equitable remedies, in addition to any other remedies available to it under the applicable law.
This Agreement represents the complete agreement between you and Jolly Bear concerning the Site and the Game(s) and supersedes all prior agreements and representations, warranties or understandings between you and Jolly Bear (whether negligently or innocently made but excluding those made fraudulently), regarding the same subject matter. Jolly Bear reserves the right to amend this Agreement at any time, at its sole discretion. If any part of the Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of the Agreement or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
Jolly Bear may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Notwithstanding, you may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under the Agreement without Jolly Bear's express prior written consent. Jolly Bear's performance of the Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in the Agreement is in derogation of Jolly Bear's right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site and/or the Game(s) or information provided to or gathered by Jolly Bear with respect to such use. In addition to any excuse provided by applicable law, we shall be excused from liability for non-delivery or delay in delivery of the Site and/or the Game(s) or for loss of game progress data or your VC or purchased virtual items arising from any event beyond our reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable by either party, including but not limited to, labor disturbance, war, terrorism, fire, denial of service attack, internet outages, accident, adverse weather, inability to secure transportation, governmental act or regulation, third party acts or omissions and other causes or events beyond our reasonable control, whether or not similar to those which are enumerated above. The parties agree that all correspondence relating to this Agreement shall be written in the English language.
Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
You and Jolly Bear agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
This Section is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us, including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to advertising); and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement. The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
By agreeing to this Agreement, you agree to resolve any and all disputes with Jolly Bear as follows:
Initial Dispute Resolution: Most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. You can reach Jolly Bear's support department at email@example.com. Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with the Jolly Bear support department, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Jolly Bear will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Jolly Bear will pay the fees invoiced by JAMS, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration 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.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration may take place in the county where you reside at the time of filing. For individuals residing outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the State of California, United States of America, and you and Jolly Bear agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in San Mateo 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.
Class Action Waiver: The parties further agree that the 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 Jolly Bear AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS USER 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 provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office 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.
30-Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending (from the email address you use on Jolly Bear) written notice of your decision to opt out to Jolly Bear Games, P.O. Box 7151, Menlo Park, CA 94026, U.S.A., with the subject line, "ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Services; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Jolly Bear also will not be bound by them.
Changes to This Section: Jolly Bear will provide thirty (30) days' notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Jolly Bear Agreement, sending you a message, or otherwise notifying you when you are logged into your account. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on the Jolly Bear Agreement or sent to you.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on "Changes to This Section" is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver,” and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Services.
Survival: This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your account or cessation of use of the Site and/or the Game(s).
This Agreement shall be construed under California law as such law is applied to agreements between California residents entered into and to be performed within California, except as governed by federal law.
