In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas or court orders, or to protect our business and customers, we may access and disclose any information that we consider necessary or appropriate, including your Skafos Account username and password, IP address and traffic information, and usage history.

5. Fees and Payments.

5.1 Fees and Payment Terms. You will pay Skafos the then applicable fees for the Services you purchase, in accordance with the pricing provided to you prior to purchase, which may include the pricing available on our Site (the “Fees”). If your use of the Services exceeds the service capacity restrictions applicable to the Services you purchase, if any, or otherwise requires the payment of additional fees (per the terms of this Agreement), you will be billed for such usage and you agree to pay the additional fees in the manner described in this Agreement.  Skafos reserves the right to change the Fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and Fees at the end of the initial service term or then‑current renewal term, upon thirty (30) days’ prior notice to you (which may be sent by email). If you believe that Skafos has billed you incorrectly, you must contact Skafos no later than 60 days after the closing date on the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit, as determined by Skafos. Skafos may choose to bill through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Skafos thirty (30) days after the mailing date of the invoice. Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate termination of Service. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with Services other than U.S. taxes based on Skafos’s net income.

5.2 Subscriptions. If you purchase a subscription, your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with this Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at Skafos’s then-current price for such subscription.  You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least (a) thirty (30) days  prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from Skafos that your subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty days from the date of the Skafos notice), by logging into and going to the “Change/Cancel Membership” page of your “Account Settings” page.  If you do not wish your Account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact Skafos at 103 W Main Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902, or help@skafos.ai, or log in and go to the “Change/Cancel Account” page on your “Account Settings” page.  If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.  However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.  By subscribing, you authorize Skafos to charge your payment provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period.  Upon renewal of your subscription, if Skafos does not receive payment from your payment provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that Skafos may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your payment provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).

6. Indemnity 

You agree fully to indemnify and hold Skafos and its affiliates, if any, and its/their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, harmless, including costs and attorneys’ fees, from and against any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of (i) your use of the Site or Services; (ii) your violation of this Agreement; and/or (iii) your Applications.  Skafos reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims.  You agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of Skafos.  Skafos will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.

When you link to a Third Party Site or an ad provided by a third party, all of the applicable third party’s terms and policies apply, including the third party’s terms of use, privacy and data gathering practices.  You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such Third Party Sites & Ads.

11. Dispute Resolution.

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully.  It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Company and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

11.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Services, including the SDK, or to any aspect of your relationship with Skafos, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Skafos may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.

IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH SKAFOS, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST SKAFOS ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF.  INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST SKAFOS IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING.  IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.

11.2 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 claim to Metis Machine LLC, 103 W Main Street, Charlottesville, Virginia 22902.  The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider.   Disputes involving claims and counterclaims 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 at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims 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, Skafos will pay them for you.  In addition, Skafos will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.  Likewise, Skafos will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted 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.

11.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim 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 Skafos.   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.

11.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND COMPANY 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 Skafos are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 11.1 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.

11.5 Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 12.2.

11.6 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 the following address: Metis Machine LLC, 103 W Main Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902, Attn: Customer Service, help@skafos.ai, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Skafos username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Skafos 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.

11.7 Severability. 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.

11.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Skafos.

11.9 Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Skafos makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice to Skafos.

12. General

12.1 Changes to Agreement. This Agreement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we may, if we so elect in our discretion, notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us (if any) and/or by posting notice of the changes on our Site.  Any material changes to this agreement will be effective upon the earlier of thirty (30) calendar days following our dispatch of an e-mail notice to you (if applicable) or thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on our Site.  These changes will be effective immediately for new users of our Site or Services.  You are responsible for providing us with your most current e-mail address.  In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice.  Continued use of our Site or Services following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.

12.2 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction.  To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in a court, you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Albemarle County in the Commonwealth of Virginia for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein, we may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect Skafos’s intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.

12.3 Trademarks. All trademarks, logos and service marks (“Marks”) displayed on the Site are our property or the property of other third parties. You are not permitted to use these Marks without our prior written consent of Skafos or the consent of such third party, which may own the Marks.

12.4 Electronic Communications. The communications between you and Skafos use electronic means, whether you visit Services or send Skafos e-mails, or whether Skafos posts notices on Services or communicates with you via e-mail.  For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from Skafos in an electronic form; and (2) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Skafos provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were to be in writing.  The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights.

12.5 Notice. Where Skafos requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Skafos with your most current e-mail address.  In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Skafos is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, Skafos’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.  You may give notice to Skafos at the following address: 103 W Main Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902.  Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Skafos by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.

12.6 Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.

12.7 Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.

12.8 Assignment. The Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without Skafos’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.

12.9 Force Majeure. Skafos shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.

12.10 International Users. The Services can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Services and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Skafos intends to announce such Services or Content in your country.  The Services are controlled and offered by Skafos from its facilities in the United States of America. Skafos makes no representations that The Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations.  Those who access or use The Services from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.

12.11 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (which includes the Privacy Policy and any other rules posted on the Site) constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Site and Services. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means including without limitation.  If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.  Your relationship to Skafos is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other.  This Agreement, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without Skafos’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.  The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon permitted assignees.
