IV CONTESTS AND SWEEPSTAKES
V MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Before using any of our mobile applications ("App" or "Apps"), we may ask you to install a valid copy of the App on your mobile device, register for an account (e.g., a member account), input your personal and/or account information into the App as requested, and meet certain hardware, software, and connection requirements which may change as the App evolves. You are responsible for any internet connection fees and/or mobile carrier charges that you incur when accessing or using an App. Should you uninstall an App from your mobile device, you may not be able to use all or some of the features of the App. We use reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of any photographs or other content in products that you order or provide through our Apps, including the colors of those photographs or other content; however, the actual color you see is dependent upon your mobile device, and as such we cannot guarantee that your mobile device will accurately display such colors, nor that the products you order through our Apps will have the same color or hue that you observed through the App on your mobile device.
SUBSCRIPTION MAGAZINE APPS
Our Apps for the Recently subscription services (also referred to herein as a "Subscription Magazine App") offer you an opportunity to have photos from your smartphone or other device shipped to you in a photo magazine book on a periodic basis. By purchasing, downloading, using, or receiving a Subscription Magazine App (including The Recently App), you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not use any subscription services offered through any Subscription Magazine Apps.
Services provided through Subscription Magazine Apps, which may start with a free trial, will continue month-to-month unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. Your device must be able to support the Subscription Magazine Apps you use, and you must provide us with current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") to use Subscription Magazine Apps. We will bill the monthly subscription fee to your Payment Method. The monthly subscription price may include shipping and handling, but does not include any applicable taxes. We may change the price for the subscription from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use Subscription Magazine Apps, after the price change takes effect, you accept the new price. If you reside in a country that is part of the European Union and have purchased a subscription, you have the right to change your mind and receive a full refund within fourteen (14) days of purchase (the "Cooling-off Period"), but only if you have not logged in or otherwise redeemed or started to consume it. Any cancellation of your Subscription Magazine App, or any subscriptions associated therewith, will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period. However, if you cancel your payment and/or terminate the Terms after the Cooling-off Period is over (where applicable), and/or before the end of the subscription period, we will not refund any fees already paid to us, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.
In certain jurisdictions, gift subscriptions for our Apps, or services provided through our Apps, may be available for purchase, which are one time use cards and are only redeemable for the Apps or services in countries where the service is offered in the currency denominated on the gift subscription. Gift subscriptions are assigned a fixed monetary value (e.g., $25 USD). The entire value of the gift subscriptions will be applied to your Subscription Magazine App account upon redemption. Gift subscriptions are not refundable (whether cash or otherwise), except to the extent required by applicable law. Gift subscriptions cannot be used to purchase other gift subscriptions, and cannot be reloaded, resold or transferred for value. Gift subscriptions will expire in the time period specified on the gift subscription. Title to the gift subscription and the risk of loss, destruction or deterioration pass to the purchaser upon purchase. We are not responsible for any gift subscriptions that are lost, stolen, destroyed or used without your permission. In the event a gift subscription is non-functional, your sole remedy, and our sole liability, will be the replacement of such gift subscription.
From time to time, other types of promotional codes may be available, including those provided as part of a third party promotion. Promotional codes may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion. Promotional codes can only be used once, cannot be redeemed for cash, and may be subject to certain restrictions as determined by us in our sole discretion. If you received a promotional code through an offer by a third party, additional conditions may apply.
We may offer trials of our Apps, for a specified period without payment (a "Trial"). We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial, and to withdraw or to modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability. For some Trials, we will require you to provide a Payment Method to start the Trial. At the end of such Trials, we may automatically start to charge you for the Apps, beginning on the first day following the end of the Trial, on a recurring monthly basis. By providing a Payment Method in conjunction with the Trial, you agree to this charge. You will not receive a notice from us that your Trial has ended or that the paying portion of your subscription has begun. If you do not want this charge, you must cancel your App, or the subscription associated therewith, by contacting customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org, before the end of the Trial.
The monthly subscription fee for our Apps will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of your subscription and each month thereafter unless and until you cancel your subscription. We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying subscription. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. We may contact you via e-mail if there is a problem with your Payment Method, or you can view this information at any time from within the App. You may also contact customer service at email@example.com at any time with any billing questions. In the event your paying subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started your Subscription Magazine App on January 31st, your next payment date will likely be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date.
Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used subscriptions. Following any cancellation, access to the subscription and/or the App, will be terminated immediately. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
We will make reasonable efforts to keep our Apps operational. However, certain technical difficulties or maintenance may, from time to time result in temporary interruptions. We reserve the right, periodically and at any time, to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, functions and features of our Apps, with or without notice, all without liability to you for any interruption, modification, or discontinuation of the Apps or any function or feature thereof. You understand and agree that we have no obligation to maintain, support, upgrade, or update our Apps.
Our Apps are developed by, for, or on behalf of us and are designed to enable your Subscription Magazine App ready device to upload and create photo magazines. This software and your ability to upload photos may vary by device and medium, and functionalities may also differ between devices. By using our Apps, including using The Recently App, you acknowledge and agree to receive, without further notice or prompting, updated versions of the Apps and related third-party software. If you do not accept the foregoing terms, do not use our Apps. We do not take responsibility or otherwise warrant the performance of these devices, including the continuing compatibility of the device with our Subscription Magazine Apps. If your Subscription Magazine Apps ready device is sold, lost or stolen, it is your sole responsibility to cancel the Apps immediately. If you fail to cancel your Subscription Magazine Apps, you will be responsible for recurring monthly charges until cancellation. Your sole and exclusive remedy for dissatisfaction with a Subscription Magazine Apps photo magazine is to obtain a reprint or credit (to be determined at our sole discretion), and your sole and exclusive remedy for dissatisfaction with our Apps, is to stop using the Apps.
The Recently App is licensed, and not sold, to you for your personal use only, and we retain ownership of all copies and versions of App software applications even after installation on your device. We may assign these or any part of them without restrictions. You may not assign them or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under this license, to any third party. We may terminate or restrict your use of our Apps without compensation or notice if you are, or if we suspect that you are in violation of any of these Terms or engaged in illegal or improper use of the Apps.

If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through our Sites and Apps infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on our Sites and Apps; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding our Sites and Apps should be sent to our designated agent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via physical mail to:

XXI ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Recently, Inc., by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Recently, Inc. must be addressed to: Attn: Legal, Recently, Inc., 47 Bergen Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11201 ("Notice Address"). If Recently, Inc. initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Recently, Inc., must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Recently, Inc. and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Recently, Inc. may commence an arbitration proceeding.
You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Recently, Inc. and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in New York, New York.
If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND RECENTLY, INC. AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Recently, Inc. agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
