Trademarks

A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services. Also, as trade dress, it can be the appearance of a product or its packaging, including size, shape, color, texture, graphics, and appearance (e.g, retail store or website).

When using the marks in publications that will be distributed only in the United States, include the appropriate ™, ℠, or ® symbol on first use. For publications that will be distributed outside the United States, do not include trademark symbols. Instead use the appropriate trademark attribution notice..

The list also includes a suggested generic term for each trademark. For all publications, include an appropriate generic term after the trademark the first time it appears. Thereafter, the generic term should appear frequently with the trademark. (These generic terms are only suggestions, and there may be other words that are equally appropriate.)

Trademarks are adjectives, and should not be made into verbs or made plural or possessive.

Limitation of Liability

Except where prohibited by law, in no event will CleverPet be liable to you for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental or punitive damages, including lost profits, even if CleverPet has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

If, notwithstanding the other provisions of these Terms of Use, CleverPet is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Site or any Content or User Content, CleverPet’s liability shall in no event exceed the greater of (1) the total of any subscription or similar fees with respect to any service or feature of or on the Site paid in the six months prior to the date of the initial claim made against CleverPet (but not including the purchase price for any CleverPet hardware or software products or any CleverPetCare or similar support program), or (2) US$100.00. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold CleverPet, its officers, directors, shareholders, predecessors, successors in interest, employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates, harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against CleverPet by any third party due to or arising out of or in connection with your use of the Site.

Violation of These Terms of Use

CleverPet may disclose any information we have about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) CleverPet’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Site, including CleverPet’s customers. CleverPet reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that CleverPet deems necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. CleverPet also may disclose your information when CleverPet determines that applicable law requires or permits such disclosure, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection purposes.

You acknowledge and agree that CleverPet may preserve any transmittal or communication by you with CleverPet through the Site or any service offered on or through the Site, and may also disclose such data if required to do so by law or CleverPet determines that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with legal process, (2) enforce these Terms of Use, (3) respond to claims that any such data violates the rights of others, or (4) protect the rights, property or personal safety of CleverPet, its employees, users of or visitors to the Site, and the public.

You agree that CleverPet may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your access to the Site and/or block your future access to the Site if we determine that you have violated these Terms of Use or other agreements or guidelines which may be associated with your use of the Site. You also agree that any violation by you of these Terms of Use will constitute an unlawful and unfair business practice, and will cause irreparable harm to CleverPet, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to CleverPet obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that CleverPet deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies CleverPet may have at law or in equity.

You agree that CleverPet may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your access to the Site, for cause, which includes (but is not limited to) (1) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (2) a request by you (self-initiated account deletions), (3) discontinuance or material modification of the Site or any service offered on or through the Site, or (4) unexpected technical issues or problems.

You agree that CleverPet will not be liable to you or to any third party for termination of your access to the Site as a result of any violation of these Terms of Use.

Governing Law; Dispute Resolution

You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions. You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the state and federal courts in Santa Clara County, California, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue. The preceding provision regarding venue does not apply if you are a consumer based in the European Union. If you are a consumer based in the European Union, you may make a claim in the courts of the country where you reside. Any claim under these Terms of Use must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. Claims made under the separate terms and conditions of purchase for goods and services are not subject to this limitation. No recovery may be sought or received for damages other than out-of-pocket expenses, except that the prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees. In the event of any controversy or dispute between CleverPet and you arising out of or in connection with your use of the Site, the parties shall attempt, promptly and in good faith, to resolve any such dispute. If we are unable to resolve any such dispute within a reasonable time (not to exceed thirty (30) days), then either party may submit such controversy or dispute to mediation. If the dispute cannot be resolved through mediation, then the parties shall be free to pursue any right or remedy available to them under applicable law.

Void Where Prohibited

CleverPet administers and operates the Clever.Pet Site from its location in San Diego, California USA; other CleverPet sites may be administered and operated from various locations outside the United States. Although the Site is accessible worldwide, not all features, products or services discussed, referenced, provided or offered through or on the Site are available to all persons or in all geographic locations, or appropriate or available for use outside the United States. CleverPet reserves the right to limit, in its sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any feature, product or service to any person or geographic area. Any offer for any feature, product or service made on the Site is void where prohibited. If you choose to access the Site from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.

Miscellaneous

You may not use or export or re-export any Content or User Content or any copy or adaptation of such Content or User Content, or any product or service offered on the Site, in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including without limitation United States export laws and regulations.

If any of the provisions of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and CleverPet with regard to your use of the Site, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and CleverPet with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled. Other than as provided in a purchase agreement you enter into with CleverPet, CleverPet will not accept any counter-offers to these Terms of Use, and all such offers are hereby categorically rejected. CleverPet’s failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver by CleverPet of any provision or any right it has to enforce these Terms of Use, nor shall any course of conduct between CleverPet and you or any other party be deemed to modify any provision of these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.

CleverPet provides access to the Site worldwide and, therefore, the Site may contain references or cross references to CleverPet products, programs and services that are not available in your country. Such reference does not imply that CleverPet in your country intends to make available such products, programs or services in your country.

Unsolicited Idea Submission Policy

CleverPet or any of its employees do not accept or consider unsolicited ideas, including ideas for new advertising campaigns, new promotions, new or improved products or technologies, product enhancements, processes, materials, marketing plans or new product names. Please do not submit any unsolicited ideas, original creative artwork, suggestions or other works (“submissions”) in any form to CleverPet or any of its employees. The sole purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes when CleverPet’s products or marketing strategies might seem similar to ideas submitted to CleverPet. If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still submit them, then regardless of what your letter says, the following terms shall apply to your submissions.

Terms of idea submission

You agree that: (1) your submissions and their contents will automatically become the property of CleverPet, without any compensation to you; (2) CleverPet may use or redistribute the submissions and their content for any purpose and in any way; (3) there is no obligation for CleverPet to review the submission; and (4) there is no obligation to keep any submissions confidential.
