DISCLAIMER

YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY AND EFFORT IS WITH YOU. THE SERVICE AND CONTENT ON THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. WE DO NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE SERVICE, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN OR SERVICES PERFORMED BY THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT ANY SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO BE MADE AVAILABLE, THAT DEFECTS IN THE SERVICE WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS OR THIRD PARTY SERVICES. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY US OR AN APPROVED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED through THE SERVICE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. TIGERTEXT CANNOT ENSURE THAT ANYTHING YOU DOWNLOAD FROM THE SERVICE WILL NOT CONTAIN VIRUSES OR OTHER DESTRUCTIVE ELEMENTS. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Except where prohibited by law, in no event will TigerText or any of its affiliated entities be liable for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages that result from: (1) the use of, or inability to use, the Service; (2) the performance of the services and materials available from the Service; or (3) the conduct of other users of the Service, even if TigerText has been advised of the possibility of such damages. You assume total responsibility for your use of the Service. Your only remedy against TigerText for dissatisfaction with the Service or any Content is to stop using the Service. If, notwithstanding these Terms, TigerText is found liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Service or any Content, TigerText’s liability shall in no event exceed $1.00. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.

SERVICE TERMINATION

TigerText may at anytime cease to provide the Service for any reason including without limitation your violation of these Terms.

CONTROLLING LAW AND SEVERABILITY

This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to any conflict of law provisions. Any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively by the state and/or federal courts of the State of California, County of Los Angeles and/or the Central District of California. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of these terms and conditions unenforceable, the remainder shall continue in full force and effect.

MISCELLANEOUS

TigerText administers and operates the Service from its location in Calabasas, California USA. Although the Service is accessible throughout the world, not all services or features provided or offered through the Service are available to all persons or in all geographic locations. TigerText reserves the right to limit, in its sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any service or feature to any person or geographic area. Use of the Service is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms and any offer for any feature or service made through the Service is void where prohibited.

The failure of TigerText to enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. We may provide notice to you relating to the Service and/or these Terms by sending an email to your last known email address, and any such notice shall be deemed given and received on the day it is sent. You agree that any cause of action that you may desire to bring arising out of or related to these Terms and/or the Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arises; otherwise, such cause of action shall be permanently barred. You may not use the Service or export the Content in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. If you access the Service from a location outside the United States, you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.

TERMINATION

These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by TigerText. TigerText may terminate these Terms at any time and may do so immediately without notice and, accordingly, deny you access to the Service, in TigerText’s sole discretion. The terms relating to Intellectual Property, Indemnification, Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability and Controlling Law and Severability shall survive termination.

You also agree that any breach or violation by you of any of the Terms will cause TigerText irreparable damage, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to TigerText obtaining injunctive or equitable relief, without being required to post a bond, if TigerText seeks such relief under the circumstances. Such injunctive or equitable would be in addition to any other remedies that TigerText might have at law.

COMPLETE AGREEMENT

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding the same. No amendment to or modification of these Terms will be binding unless in writing and signed by us.
