Additional Terms for App on Apple iOS Devices

The following additional terms and conditions apply solely with respect to the App that Project Rōnin provides to you designed for use on an Apple iOS-powered mobile device (the “iOS App”). These additional terms supplement and do not exclude or supersede any other provisions of these Terms of Service:

 

·      These Terms of Service are between you and Project Rōnin only, and not with Apple, Inc. (“Apple”). Project Rōnin, and not Apple, is solely responsible for the iOS App and the content thereof.

·      The license granted to you in these Terms of Service, as it relates to your use of the iOS App, is subject to the Usage Rules set forth in Apple’s App Store Terms of Service.

·      Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the iOS App.

·      Project Rōnin has disclaimed all warranties.  However, in the event of any failure of the iOS App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price of the iOS App to you. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the iOS App.

·      Project Rōnin, not Apple, is responsible for addressing any claims of yours or any third party relating to the iOS App or your possession and/or use of the iOS App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the iOS App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.

·      In the event of any third party claim that the iOS App or your possession and use of the iOS App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Project Rōnin, not Apple, will be solely responsible, to the extent required by these Terms of Service, for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.

·      You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

·      Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries to these Terms of Service, as they relate to your license of the iOS App. Upon your acceptance of these Terms of Service, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms of Service against you as they relate to your license of the iOS App as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

 

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Service and Privacy Policy are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule.

 

Waiver and Severability

If any provision of these Terms of Service is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.

 

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms of Service, or if we do not enforce our rights against you or we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

 

Limitation on Time to File Claims

Any cause of action or claim you may have arising out of or relating to the Services must be commenced within one year after the cause of action accrues. Failure to do so will result in the cause of action or claim being permanently barred, and will constitute your complete and final waiving of the cause of action or claim.

 

Agreement to Arbitrate 

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  The place of arbitration shall be San Mateo County, California.

 

Entire Agreement

These Terms of Service and Project Rōnin’s Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and Project Rōnin with respect to the Services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to the Services.
