Except for the foregoing limited license, no right, title or interest shall be transferred to you.  This license does not allow you to use the 3D Décor Models in any manner except in connection with the Adornably Services home décor visualization mobile application.

6.     Forums
If you have a valid and active Account, you may post communications and other content to the forums section of the Adornably Services (the “Forums”). You agree to abide by the User Rules above. You understand that much of the information included in the Forums is from other users who are not employed by or under the control of Adornably. You further acknowledge that users participating in the Forums may occasionally post messages or make statements, whether intentionally or unintentionally, that are inaccurate, misleading, deceptive, abusive or even unlawful. Adornably neither endorses nor is responsible for such messages or statements, or for any opinion, advice, information or other utterance made or displayed in the Forums by you or the other users.  The opinions expressed in the Forums reflect solely the opinions of you and/or the other users and do not reflect the opinions of Adornably. Adornably is not responsible for any errors or omissions in postings, for hyperlinks embedded in messages or for any results obtained from the use of the information contained in the Forums. Under no circumstances will Adornably be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on the information in the Forums or your use of the Forums. You should be aware that, when you disclose information about yourself in a Forum, the information is being made publicly available and may be collected and used by other users.  When you disclose any information in a Forum, you do so at your own risk.  Adornably reserves the right to, but has no obligation to, monitor the Forums, or any postings or other materials that you or other players transmit or post on the Forums, to alter or remove any such materials, and to disclose such materials and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party.

7.     Links to Other Websites
The Adornably Services may contain links to websites operated by other parties.  Adornably provides these links to other websites as a convenience, and use of those sites is at your own risk.  The linked sites are not under the control of Adornably, and Adornably is not responsible for the content available on the other sites.  Such links do not imply Adornably’s endorsement of information or material on any other site and Adornably disclaims all liability with regard to your access to and use of such linked websites. 

8.    Software Updates
In an effort to improve the Service, Adornably may update its Adornably Services, including its Apps and software, without notifying you.

9.     Fees and Payments

            9.1. Fees and Payments.  Some aspects of the Adornably Services require you to pay a fee. For example, you may purchase personal design consultations and/or physical products through the Adornably Services.  You agree to pay all fees, payments and applicable taxes incurred by your Account you used to access the Adornably Services.  You acknowledge and understand that Adornably does not manufacture any physical products and that most product purchases will be fulfilled and shipped through a third party retailer or manufacturer.  You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide with regards to a purchase, including, without limitation, credit card or other payment information, is accurate, current and complete.  You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us or our payment processor, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when completing a transaction.  We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to (i) discontinue or limit the available quantity of any product or aspect of the Adornably Services, (ii) honor, or impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; and (iii) refuse to allow any user to purchase a product or deliver any product to a user.  When you purchase products through the Adornably Services, you (a) agree to pay the price for such products set forth in the Adornably Services, all shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes in connection with your purchase (the “Full Purchase Amount”) and (b) authorize Adornably to charge your credit card or other payment method for the Full Purchase Amount.  Unless otherwise noted, all currency references are in U.S. dollars. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable.   

            9.2. Return and Refund Policy.  There are no refunds or returns for the purchase of personal design consultations though the Adornably Services.  Each piece of furniture and home décor item for sale through the Adornably Services has its own individual return policy.  The return policy for each furniture and home décor item will be provided after the item is added to the online shopping cart and/or in the description of the item.  If no return policy is listed in the online shopping cart or in the description of the item, then the sale is final and there will be no refund or return allowed.

            9.3. Changes to Products and Pricing.  Adornably may, at any time, revise or change the pricing, availability, specifications, content, descriptions or features of the Adornably Services or any products or services sold through the Adornably Services. The inclusion of any products made available through the Adornably Services at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any other time.  Adornably reserves the right to change prices for products displayed on the Adornably Services at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur.  All such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting of such new product prices to the Site.

            9.4. Order Acceptance/Confirmation.  Once we receive your order, we will provide you with an email order confirmation.  Your receipt of an order confirmation, however, does not signify Adornably’s acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. Adornably reserves the right at any time after receiving your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. Since Adornably does not manufacture any physical products and most product purchases are fulfilled and shipped through third party retailers and manufacturers, each product order is subject to the third party having it in stock at the requested price.  If Adornably or the third party retailer or manufacturer refuses to fulfill the product order for any reason, you agree that Adornably is not liable.  If Adornably cancels an order after you have already been billed, then Adornably will refund the billed amount. 

            9.5. Shipment of Products.  Title and risk of loss for any purchases of physical products pass to you upon delivery to the carrier.

17.  Binding Arbitration

(a)        Arbitration Procedures.  You and Adornably agree that, except as provided in Section (d) below, all disputes, controversies and claims related to this Agreement (each a “Claim”), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party.  Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other.  The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Binding Arbitration Section and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Binding Arbitration Section will control and prevail. 

Except as otherwise set forth in Section (d) below, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action.  As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim.  The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based.  The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) you and Adornably may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law. 

BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND ADORNABLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. 

(b)       Location.  The arbitration will be conducted in the County of Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.

(c)        Limitations. You and Adornably agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between Adornably and you individually. YOU AND ADORNABLY AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.

(d)       Exceptions to Arbitration. You and Adornably agree that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning negotiations and binding arbitration: (i) any Claim seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Adornably’s intellectual property rights; (ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (iii) any claim for equitable relief.  In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.

(e)        Arbitration Fees.  If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee.  If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration.  All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules. 

(f)        Severability. You and Adornably agree that if any portion this Section is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section (d)), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect.  If Section (d) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither you nor Adornably will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section (d) found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County of Los Angeles, State of California, United States of America, and you and Adornably agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

18.  Term and Termination
This Agreement is effective until terminated.  Adornably may terminate this Agreement with or without notice for any reason, or for no reason.  You may terminate this agreement by discontinuing your use of the Adornably Services and notifying Adornably in writing.

19.  General 

Agreement Revisions. This Agreement may only be revised in writing by Adornably, or published by Adornably on the Site.

Force Majeure. Adornably shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Adornably, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Adornably’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.

No Partnership.  You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Adornably as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Adornably Services.

Assignment.  Adornably may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign the Agreement without Adornably’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.

Equitable Remedies.  You hereby agree that Adornably would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.

Entire Agreement.  This Agreement, including the documents expressly incorporated by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Adornably Services and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and us with respect to the Adornably Services.   

I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOREGOING TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT AND AGREE THAT MY USE OF THE ADORNABLY SERVICES IS AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF MY AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT.
