9. LIMITATIONS OF PRODUCT SOFTWARE
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE PRODUCT AND PRODUCT SOFTWARE ARE NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE OR AN EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM. HBI makes no warranty or representation that the use of the Product or Product Software (with or without any third-party product or service) constitutes medical treatment. You understand and acknowledge that HBI’s Product or Product Software will not dispatch emergency authorities in the event of an emergency. Furthermore, HBI’s Customer Care and Support contacts cannot be considered a medical resource. If you have an emergency or a medical concern, it is your responsibility to seek medical assistance.
The Product Software provides you information (“Product Information”) regarding your baby. All Product Information is provided “as is” and “as available.” We cannot guarantee that it is correct or up to date. In cases where it is critical, accessing Product Information through the Product Software is not a substitute for direct care of your baby.
10. COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
You acknowledge that HBI may, directly or indirectly through the services of third parties, collect and store information regarding use of the Product Software and about equipment on which the Product Software is installed or through which it otherwise is accessed and used, through: (a) the provision of maintenance and support services; and (b) security measures included in the Product Software.
You agree that HBI may use such information for any purpose related to any use of the Product Software by you or on your equipment, including but not limited to: (a) improving the performance of the Product Software or developing Updates; and (b) verifying your compliance with the terms of this EULA and enforcing the HBI’s rights, including all intellectual property rights in and to the Product Software.
“Confidential Information” shall mean the Product Software and all other information disclosed to you that HBI characterizes as confidential at the time of its disclosure either in writing or orally, except for information which you can demonstrate: (a) is previously rightfully known to you without restriction on disclosure; (b) is or becomes, from no act or failure to act on your part, generally known in the relevant industry or public domain; (c) is disclosed to you by a third party as a matter of right and without restriction on disclosure; or (d) is independently developed by you without access to the Confidential Information. You shall use your best efforts to preserve and protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information at all times, both during the term hereof and for a period of at least 3 years after termination of this EULA, provided, however, that any source code you receive shall be held in confidence in perpetuity. You shall not disclose, disseminate or otherwise publish or communicate Confidential Information to any person, firm, corporation or other third party without the prior written consent of HBI. You shall not use any Confidential Information other than in the course of the activities permitted hereunder.
You shall notify HBI in writing immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information or any other breach of this EULA, and will cooperate with HBI in every reasonable way to regain possession of Confidential Information and prevent any further unauthorized use. If you are legally compelled to disclose any of the Confidential Information, then, prior to such disclosure, you will (i) immediately notify HBI prior to such disclosure to allow HBI an opportunity to contest the disclosure, (ii) assert the privileged and confidential nature of the Confidential Information, and (iii) cooperate fully with HBI in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information. In the event such protection is not obtained, you shall disclose the Confidential Information only to the extent necessary to comply with the applicable legal requirements.
12. EXPORT COMPLIANCE
The Product Software and related technology may be subject to U.S. export control laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. You shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export or release the Product Software to, or make the Product Software accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export or release is prohibited by law, rule or regulation. You agree to strictly comply with all such laws, regulations and rules, and acknowledge that you have the responsibility to obtain authorization to export, re-export or import the Product Software and related technology, as may be required. You will indemnify and hold HBI harmless from any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including legal fees) arising from or relating to any breach by you of your obligations under this section. THE FOREGOING INDEMNIFICATION DOES NOT APPLY TO HBI’S OWN NEGLIGENCE, RECKLESSNESS OR INTENTIONAL CONDUCT.
13. GOVERNING LAW; ARBITRATION
The courts in some countries will not apply California law to some types of disputes. If you reside in one of those countries, then where California law is excluded from applying, your country’s laws will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, you agree that this EULA, and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief relating to this EULA, will be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the laws of a different jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any dispute or claim relating to this EULA or the Product Software will be resolved by binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) rather than in court (except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify). The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to the enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. To the fullest extent permitted by law we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THESE TERMS (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out by emailing written notification to HBI at email@example.com that includes: (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with HBI through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Section will have no adverse effect on your relationship with HBI. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your dispute in arbitration or in small claims court. In addition, this arbitration provision does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in any court having jurisdiction to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under this EULA are assignable by you, and any such attempted assignment shall be void and without effect.
Any notice to you may be provided by email to the address that you registered with HBI.
All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given: (i) when delivered by hand (with written confirmation of receipt); (ii) when received by the addressee if sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (iii) on the date sent by facsimile or e-mail (with confirmation of transmission) if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and on the next business day if sent after normal business hours of the recipient; or (iv) on the third day after the date mailed, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid.
If any provision of this EULA is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. The invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision may be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
All waivers by HBI will be effective only if in writing. Any waiver or failure by HBI to enforce any provision of this EULA on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
The Product Software is deemed irrevocably accepted upon your use of the Product Software or Product. HBI will have no responsibility to provide maintenance or support services with respect to the Product Software.
The parties are independent contractors.
You acknowledge that the Product Software contains valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of HBI, that any actual or threatened breach of any provision of this EULA will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to HBI for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach.
The headings of Sections of this EULA are for convenience and are not to be used in interpreting this EULA.
Except as otherwise provided in this section, no amendment to this EULA will be valid unless it is in writing hand-signed by the parties.
