6. Fees; Term and Termination.
6.1 Fees. Some features of the Service may only be accessed and used upon the payment of applicable fees (“Fees”). Fees may vary depending on usage in accordance with our current pricing policy available in the Service or on our website. If Customer does not initially register for a version of the Service that requires the payment of a fee, Customer will only be permitted to use those features of the Service for the trial period that are expressed when signing up for the trial period use of the Service (“Free Trial Period”). NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING CONTAINED HEREIN, ANY SERVICE PROVIDED DURING THE FREE TRIAL PERIOD IS PROVIDED “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR INDEMNITIES. Upon the expiration of the Free Trial Period, Customer will only be able to access and use those features of the Service the use of which does not require the payment of a Fee, unless Customer subsequently upgrades to a paid version of the Service.

Nandi will not refund or reimburse Customer if Customer’s Account is terminated for cause, including (without limitation) for a violation of these Terms or Nandi Policies.
6.3.2 By Customer. Customer is solely responsible for properly canceling Customer’s Account. If you cancel your account before the end of your current paid up applicable subscription term, Customer’s cancellation will take effect immediately, and Customer will not be charged again.

6.3.3. Effect of Termination. Once Customer’s Account is terminated, Nandi may permanently delete Customer’s Account and any or all data associated with it. If Customer does not log in to their Account for 12 or more months, Nandi may treat such an Account as “inactive” and permanently delete the Account and any or all data associated with it. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under these Terms. All sections of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination will survive, including without limitation, accrued rights to payment, use restrictions and indemnity obligations, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
7. Confidential Information. From time to time, each party may disclose Confidential Information to the other party. The receiving party shall not disclose the disclosing party's Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the receiving party's employees, agents, or subcontractors who have a need to know the Confidential Information for the receiving party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder and who are required to protect the Confidential Information in a manner no less stringent than required under these Terms. The receiving party shall protect the disclosing party’s Confidential Information using the same care as the receiving party uses to protect its own Confidential Information of similar importance, but in no event will the receiving party use less than reasonable care. The receiving party shall only use the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under these Terms. The parties agree that their mutual covenant not to disclose or use Confidential Information of the disclosing party shall not apply to any information to the extent that the information: (i) is, or at any time becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the receiving party; (ii) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to or use of the Confidential Information of the disclosing party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the receiving party from a third party without any restrictions or obligations of confidentiality; (iv) is already known by the receiving party without any obligation of confidentiality prior to obtaining the Confidential Information from the disclosing party; (v) is approved for release in writing by the disclosing party; or (vi) is required to be disclosed in response to a valid court order, authorized government agency, or to establish a party's rights under these Terms, including to make required court filings; provided, that notice is given promptly to the party whose Confidential Information is to be so disclosed and the parties shall cooperate in seeking a protective order and engaging in other such efforts. Each party's obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the date such Confidential Information is first disclosed to the receiving party and will expire two (2) years after termination of the Agreement, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.
8. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify and hold Nandi, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, suppliers, and licensors (each, a “Nandi Party” and collectively, the “Nandi Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of any and all of the following: (a) Customer Content; (b) your use of, or inability to use, the Services; (c) your violation of the Agreement; (d) your violation of any rights of another party, including any Authorized Users; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. Nandi reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with Nandi in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Nandi Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Services provided hereunder. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your Account, the Agreement and/or your access to the Services.

10.4 Basis of the Bargain. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN NANDI AND YOU.
11. International Users. The Service may be accessible from countries other than the United States and may contain references to services and content that are not available in Customer’s country. These references do not imply that Nandi intends to announce or promote the availability of such services or content in Customer’s country. Services are controlled and offered by Nandi from the United States. Nandi makes no representations that Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use Services from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
12. Dispute Resolution. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Nandi and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
12.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with Nandi, 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; and (2) you or Nandi 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.
12.2 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 our registered agent United States Corporation Agents, Inc., 1521 Concord Pike, Suite 301, in the City of Wilmington, County of New Castle, 19803. 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, Nandi will pay them for you. In addition, Nandi 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. 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.
12.3 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 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 Nandi. 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 Nandi.
12.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND NANDI 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 Nandi are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 12.1 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.
12.5 Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES 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 CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of Delaware. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
12.6 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 email@example.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Nandi username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Nandi 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.
12.7 Severability. Except as provided in subsection 12.5, 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.
12.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Nandi.
12.9 Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Nandi 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 Nandi at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn: DISPUTE NOTICE.
13. General Provisions.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” The foregoing release does not apply to any claims, demands, or any losses, damages, rights and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death or property damage for any unconscionable commercial practice by a Nandi Party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false, promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Services provided hereunder.
13.3 Assignment. The Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by Customer without Nandi’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
13.4 Force Majeure. Nandi 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.
13.5 Questions, Complaints, Claims. If you have any questions, complaints or claims with respect to the Services, please contact us at: email@example.com. We will do our best to address your concerns. If you feel that your concerns have been addressed incompletely, we invite you to let us know for further investigation.
13.6 Exclusive Venue. To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in a court, both Customer and Nandi agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to the Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Delaware.
13.7 Governing Law. THE TERMS AND ANY ACTION RELATED THERETO WILL BE GOVERNED AND INTERPRETED BY AND UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE, CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY PRINCIPLES THAT PROVIDE FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE LAW OF ANOTHER JURISDICTION. THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS DOES NOT APPLY TO THE AGREEMENT.
13.8 Notice. Where Nandi requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Nandi with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Nandi is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by the Agreement, Nandi’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to Nandi at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn: DISPUTE NOTICE. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Nandi by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
13.9 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.
13.10 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.
13.11 Entire Agreement. The Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
