We specifically refer to the Usage Rules of certain App Platforms in Schedule 1 attached below, but other Usage Rules may be applicable depending on where the App has been downloaded from. You represent that, prior to downloading the App from an App Platform, you have had the opportunity to review and understand its Usage Rules, and you warrant that you will comply with its Usage Rules. The Usage Rules that are applicable to your use of the App are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference. You also represent that you are not prohibited by any applicable Usage Rules and/or applicable Law from using the App; if you are unable to make such a representation you may not download or otherwise use the App.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Fusit grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, revocable license, during the Term (defined below), to install the App (in executable code version) on a device that you own or control ("Device"), and use the App solely for your own personal and non-commercial use (the "License"). Use of the App must be in accordance with the Documentation.
You may make one (1) backup and one (1) archival copy of the App, provided your backup and archival copies are not installed or used on any device or other equipment, and further provided that all such copies shall bear the original and unmodified copyright, trademark, and other proprietary rights notices or legends displayed or contained on or in the App.
For the avoidance of doubt, the copy(ies) of the App, as well as the Documentation, are only licensed under this Agreement, and no title in or to such copy(ies) (or the App or Documentation themselves) passes to you. Except for the License, you are granted no other right in or to the App or Documentation, whether by implied license, estoppel, patent exhaustion, operation of law, or otherwise.
4.DATA AND PRIVACY
4.1.No Storage. The App is not intended to, and will not, operate as a data storage product or service, and you agree not to rely on the App for the storage of any Account Content whatsoever. You are solely responsible and liable for the maintenance and backup of all Account Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Fusit reserves the right to automatically download Account Content to Fusit's cloud-based database(s).
4.2.Data Stored On Device. You acknowledge that certain Account Content (including without limitation personal information and other information provided by you in connection with your use of the Device) may be saved to or stored on your Device (even if we do not collect that Account Content).
You shall not (and shall not permit or encourage any third party to) do any of the following: (a) reproduce the App; (b) sell, assign, lease, lend, rent, distribute, or make available the App to any third party, or otherwise use the App in a time-sharing, outsourcing, or service bureau environment; (c) modify, alter, adapt, arrange, translate, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, decrypt, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or non-literal aspects (such as the underlying ideas, algorithms, structure, sequence, organization, and interfaces) of, the App; (d) remove, alter, or conceal, in whole or in part, any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notice or legend displayed or contained on or in the App; (e) circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related or technical features or protocols of the App; (f) make a derivative work of the App, or use the App to develop any service or product that is the same as (or substantially similar to or competitive with) the App; (g) disclose to the public the results of any internal performance testing or benchmarking studies of or about the App, without first sending the results and related study(ies) to Fusit, and obtaining Fusit’s written approval of the assumptions, methodologies and other parameters of the testing or study; (h) publish or transmit any robot, virus, malware, Trojan horse, spyware, or similar malicious item intended (or that has the potential) to damage or disrupt the App; and/or (i) use the App to infringe, misappropriate or violate any third party's Intellectual Property Rights or personal rights (such as Moral Rights, rights of privacy, and publicity rights), or any Law. References in this paragraph to "App" shall be taken to mean the App in whole or in part, as well as any Documentation.
Your full compliance with the above limitations is a condition to the License; provided however, that such limitations shall not apply to the extent expressly permitted otherwise in this Agreement, or to the extent any limitation is prohibited by the Law applicable to you or by any Third Party Software Terms and Notices (defined below). You acknowledge that the App contains information and materials that are confidential and proprietary to Fusit (and may even constitute Fusit's, or a Fusit Affiliate's, trade secrets), and therefore you agree that a breach or threatened breach of this Section (License Restrictions) may cause Fusit and/or a Fusit Affiliate to suffer irreparable harm or damage for which monetary damages will be inadequate, and accordingly, if Fusit or a Fusit Affiliate seeks an injunction, specific performance, or other equitable relief to enforce any provision under this Section, Fusit or the Fusit Affiliate (as the case may be) shall not be required to post a bond or to prove the likelihood of irreparable harm.
To the extent you are given the right, under any Law applicable to you, to receive information and/or materials for purposes of making the App interoperable with other software products, you agree to first request from Fusit (in a reasonably detailed writing) access to such information and/or materials, and if Fusit accepts such request, Fusit may (in its sole discretion) impose additional conditions on such access and use (but such use shall in any event be solely for the purpose of achieving the desired inter-operability).
6.THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE
The App may include third party software components that are subject to open source and/or pass-through commercial licenses and/or notices ("Third Party Software" and "Third Party Software Terms and Notices", respectively). Fusit will reasonably comply with any valid written request submitted by you to Fusit for exercising your rights under such Third Party Software Terms and Notices. You acknowledge that your use of the App is also governed by such Third Party Software Terms and Notices, and that to the extent of any conflict between this Agreement and any Third Party Software Terms and Notices, the latter shall control. Any undertakings, representations, warranties, guarantees, conditions, indemnities or other commitments made by Fusit in this Agreement concerning the App (if any), are made by Fusit and not by any authors, licensors, or suppliers of, or contributors to, such Third Party Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence or anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Fusit does not make any representation, warranty, guarantee, or condition, and does not undertake any defense or indemnification, with respect to any Third Party Software.
7.THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND SOURCES
The App may present, or otherwise allow you to view, access, link to, and/or interact with, Content from third parties and other sources that are not owned or controlled by Fusit (such Content, "Third Party Content"). The App may also enable you to communicate with the related third parties. The display or communication to you of such Third Party Content does not (and shall not be construed to) in any way imply, suggest, or constitute any sponsorship, endorsement, or approval by Fusit of such Third Party Content or third party, nor any affiliation between Fusit and such third party.
8.1.Responsibility. You are solely responsible and liable for your Account Content. Needless to say, Fusit is not responsible or liable for your Account Content, or for the way in which it is used by others. For example, when you send someone Content using the App, he or she will have a copy of that Content and will then be able to send it to, or share it with, others (whether via the App, through other online services, or offline). You hereby represent and warrant that: (a) your Account Content does not, and will not, infringe, misappropriate, or violate any third party's Intellectual Property Rights or personal rights (such as Moral Rights, rights of privacy, and publicity rights), or any Law; (b) your Account Content is not, and will not be, disparaging, threatening, offensive, harassing, deceptive, abusive, promoting of violence, and does not, and will not, contain obscenity or pornography; (c) your Account Content does not, and will not, contain any robot, virus, malware, Trojan horse, spyware, or similar malicious item intended (or that has the potential) to damage or disrupt the App; and (d) you have obtained, and will maintain during and after any termination of this Agreement, any and all licenses, permissions, consents, and authorizations required to grant each of the Account Content License, Promotion License, and Cross User Submission License (each as defined below).
8.2.No Obligation by Fusit. Fusit has no obligation to accept, display, review or maintain any of your Account Content. Fusit may, without notice, edit, replace and/or delete your Account Content in our sole discretion, including, without limitation, if we: (a) determine that you are in breach of any provision of this Agreement (for example, if your App Account profile picture contains nudity or impersonates another person, we may replace the picture with another picture we deem appropriate) or have violated (or are suspected by us of violating) any Law; and/or (b) deem it helpful or reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable Law, legal process, or governmental request, to enforce the Agreement (including investigations of potential violations thereof), to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security issues, and/or to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Fusit, our users, yourself or the public.
8.3.Messages. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing subsections, the App may permit you to send messages (such as invitations) or similar Content to Fusit or third parties ("Messages"). You are solely responsible and liable for the Content of your Messages, for the manner in which you send them, for the timing of sending them, and generally for the consequences of sending them. You acknowledge that many jurisdictions have Laws that require a recipient of a Message to give his/her prior consent (and that in certain cases such consent must be express, written and/or signed) to receive the Message, and you agree to: (a) obtain such consent prior to sending the Message; (b) provide Fusit, upon request, with a record or other evidence of such consent; and (c) immediately notify Fusit if the recipient revokes his/her consent. In any event, you agree to hold us harmless, and expressly release us, from any and all liability arising from Messages you send or receive.
8.4.User Submissions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing subsections, the App may permit the posting and uploading of Content (such as mashups) by you and other users to online platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter ("User Submissions"). You understand that whether or not your User Submissions are published, we do not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any User Submissions. You shall be solely responsible and liable for your User Submissions and the consequences of publishing them (including without limitation, for obtaining any consents from individuals appearing therein), and you agree to hold us harmless, and expressly release us, from any and all liability arising from your User Submissions. We have complete discretion whether to permit your User Submissions to be published, and we reserve the right without further notice to you, to monitor, censor, edit, delete, and/or remove any and all User Submissions at any time and for any reason.
You acknowledge that when accessing and using the App: (a) you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that we are not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or Intellectual Property Rights of, or relating to, such User Submissions; and (b) you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable. You hereby irrevocably waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against us with respect to (a) and (b) herein. If you suspect that any crime or other unlawful activity has been, or is being committed, please do not rely on Fusit's ability to edit or delete; rather, contact your applicable emergency services or law enforcement authority.
9.1.General. All references herein to the "App" shall include its Features as well. Fusit reserves the right to remove, modify, and/or add Features at any time, without any notice or obligation to you, and for any reason whatsoever. Some Features may in any event be limited, suspended or restricted by geography, volume, duration or any other criteria decided by Fusit in its sole discretion. Moreover, if Fusit determines that you are in breach of any provision of this Agreement, we reserve the right to block you from certain Features. We make Features available because we believe it enhances the user experience of the App; but you acknowledge and agree that just because we make a Feature available, it does not mean we endorse, or can otherwise control, every manner in which such Feature is used. A new or modified Feature may be accompanied by separate or additional terms and conditions, in which case such terms will (as determined in such terms and conditions) apply instead of, or in addition to, this Agreement. Fusit may in its sole discretion charge for new Features and/or require additional personally identifiable information.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you acknowledge that whereas Features currently make the App compatible for use with your Device, these Features may be removed or modified in the future.
9.2.Search Features. The App may include a search Feature that allows you to make generic searches of other App users (for example, by searching for "David"), which search results list all relevant users that match the search terms, as well as some of their Account Content (such as App Account name, profile picture, and profile video). You expressly consent to other App users making such generic searches that may result in your App Account and certain of your Account Content being made available to the searcher. If you do not wish to be searchable in this manner, you may opt-out of this Feature by turning it off via the App's settings.
9.3.Beta Products. Fusit may from time to time make available, in "beta" mode, new versions of the App and/or new Features that are still undergoing internal development and testing (each, a "Beta Product"). Beta Products may be time-limited, feature-limited, and/or functionality-limited. Fusit may also decide to only make a Beta Product available to closed list of App users. If Fusit makes a Beta Product available to you, you may use it on the following conditions: (i) you only use it for evaluation purposes; (ii) you comply with any specific guidelines issued by Fusit in respect of the Beta Product, which may include a requirement that you provide Feedback (defined below) and participate in surveys about the Beta Product; and (iii) you do not publicize the fact that there is a Beta Product, and you do not show, display, or otherwise make available the Beta Product to any other person (which includes, without limitation, making such disclosures to traditional or social media). For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of this EULA that apply to the App (such as the License Restrictions in Section 5, the Disclaimers in Section 12, etc.) shall also apply to Beta Products.
All references herein to the "App" shall include the Updates we provide as well. Fusit may from time to time provide Updates, but shall not be under any obligation to do so. Such Updates will be supplied according to whatever then-current policies we may have in place, and some Updates may in any event be limited, suspended or restricted by geography, volume, duration or any other criteria decided by Fusit in its sole discretion. Some Updates may include automatic updating or upgrading without any notice or obligation to you, and you consent to any such automatic updating or upgrading of the App. In some cases, you may be required to install the Update manually. An Update may be accompanied by separate or additional terms and conditions, in which case such terms will (as determined in such terms and conditions) apply instead of, or in addition to, this Agreement. Fusit may in its sole discretion charge for Updates and/or require additional personally identifiable information. Fusit is under no obligation to provide any technical support for the App.
11.1.App and Documentation. You hereby acknowledge that the App and Documentation are or may be protected by Intellectual Property (and similar) Laws, treaties, and conventions.

The Cross User Submission License shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
11.3.Feedback. If you provide Fusit with any ideas, suggestions, or similar feedback about performance of the App and/or for improving the App ("Feedback"), you hereby grant Fusit and all Fusit Affiliates a worldwide, assignable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicensees), irrevocable, and perpetual license, in any media format and through any media channels, to use, copy, distribute, transmit, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise commercially exploit such Feedback (the "Feedback License").

("JAMS"), pursuant to JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("JAMS Streamlined Rules"), as modified by this Agreement (that is, the terms of this Section 18 govern if they conflict with any of the JAMS Streamlined Rules), and consistent with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness ("JAMS Consumer Fairness Standards"). The arbitrator must honor the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including without limitation all liability exclusions and limitations), and can award damages and relief, including any attorneys’ fees authorized by Law. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND FUSIT ARE HEREBY EACH IRREVOCABLY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION (OR OTHER CLASS-WIDE PROCEEDING).
●Notwithstanding JAMS Streamlined Rule 8(b), you and Fusit agree that any dispute as to the arbitrability of a Dispute brought by either you or Fusit shall be resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction.
(B)No Class Arbitrations
THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE JAMS STREAMLINED RULES, (OR OTHER PROCEDURES OR RULES OF JAMS) WOULD. RATHER, YOU AND FUSIT ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. FURTHER, AND UNLESS YOU AND FUSIT EXPRESSLY AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING IN RESPECT OF A DISPUTE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S DISPUTE WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S DISPUTE(S), AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
(C)The Arbitrator's Decision
●The arbitrator will render an award in accordance with JAMS Streamlined Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. In the event any litigation should arise between you and Fusit in any court of competent jurisdiction in a proceeding to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND FUSIT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the proceeding be resolved by a judge. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the plaintiff/claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable Law. Fusit will not seek, and hereby waives all rights Fusit may have under applicable Law, to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if Fusit prevails in arbitration, unless you assert a frivolous claim.
●The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the FAA.
(D)Location and Fees
●Unless you and Fusit expressly agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will take place in-person at the following locations: (a) if you are a resident of a country in North America, Central America or South America, the arbitration will take place in New York City, New York, USA; or (b) if you are a resident of any other country in the world, the arbitration will take place in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Israel. In the event JAMS indicates that it is unable to provide, or arrange for, an arbitrator in Israel, you agree that the arbitration will be held in New York City, New York, USA.
●If you initiate an arbitration for a Dispute, you will be required to pay $250 of the fee required to initiate the arbitration and Fusit will pay any remaining JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services; you will remain responsible for your respective costs relating to counsel, experts, witnesses, and travel to the arbitration.
●If Fusit initiates an arbitration for a Dispute, Fusit will pay all administrative fees and costs related to the arbitration, including all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services; you will remain responsible for your costs relating to counsel, experts, witnesses, and travel to the arbitration.
(E)Small Claims Court
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in a small claims court for Disputes within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate 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 Fusit on your behalf.
