MOBER Terms of Service
Last revised: August 2015
MOBER provides an online platform that caters to customers who wish to interact with other like-minded people. Although MOBER’s Services are provided for free, additional data charges may apply to you for use of the Services through your mobile device and/or internet service provider. MOBER reserves the right to charge for any or all portions of their service in the future, with proper notice to you.
2. Important Disclaimers and Release.
(a) You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any interaction or transaction with any other client, user, customer, service provider, individual and/or subscriber (“Client(s)”). Your interactions with other Clients are solely between you and such Clients and MOBER will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions. If there is a dispute between you and any Client, we are under no obligation to become involved. MOBER does not conduct criminal or other background checks on its Clients, but reserves the right to do so at any time.
(b) You hereby release and forever discharge us (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from, and hereby waive and release each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage) that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to, any interactions or transactions of you with our Site, App and Services, or act or omission of you in relation to other Clients, including Third Party Sites & Ads.
(c) You understand that your use of the Services may involve known and unanticipated risks that could result in injury or illness, including, but not limited to, dangers that may be caused by the acts of other Clients or other third parties, or occurrences beyond the control of MOBER. By using the Services, you assume all such risks and dangers and all responsibility for any losses and/or damages. You voluntarily release, waive, discharge and hold harmless MOBER from any and all claims, demands or causes of action for bodily injury, property damage, wrongful death, sickness, other health issues, loss of services or claims that in any way arise from or are related to your use of the Services. The Services are intended only as personal, location-based services for individual use.
(d) If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 in connection with the foregoing, which states: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, MOBER will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide all the Services described in this Agreement.
In order to use the Service, you must register for an account with MOBER (“Account”) and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the Site registration form. You represent and warrant that all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate, and that you will maintain the accuracy of such information. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree to provide MOBER with proper identification documents which MOBER may request from you in regards to a dispute or other violation(s) of this Agreement or otherwise required by law for the purposes of verifying your identity. You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by contacting MOBER. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify MOBER of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security which is based on your negligence. MOBER cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. We reserve the right to remove or block any Clients and delete their accounts if they are interacting with other Clients or otherwise acting, posting or using the App in a manner deemed to be inappropriate or contrary to the primary purpose and/or spirit of the App (to be determined in the sole discretion of MOBER). Complaints can be made to MOBER using our online customer service drop down menus or by contacting support@MoberApp.com.
4. Client Content.
(a) “Client Content” means any and all information and content that a Client submits to, or uses with, the Site, App or Services. Client Content can include all text, photos, videos, sounds, posts, links, mini-shares, reviews, testimonials and any and all other information provided by any Client. You are solely responsible for your Client Content. You assume all risks associated with use of Client Content, including any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your Client Content that makes you or any third party personally identifiable. You hereby represent and warrant that your Client Content does not violate the Acceptable Use Policy (defined below in Section 5). You may not state or imply that your Client Content is in any way provided, sponsored or endorsed by MOBER. Because you alone are responsible for your Client Content (and not MOBER), you may expose yourself to liability if your Client Content violates applicable rules and regulations such as the Acceptable Use Policy. MOBER is not obligated to remove any Client Content from the Site unless required by applicable Law, but retains the right to remove, screen, edit or reinstate any Client Content in its sole discretion. MOBER may, but is not obligated to, backup any Client Content, and Client Content may be deleted at any time. You are solely responsible for creating backup copies of your Client Content if you desire.
(c) Video content will be limited to one minute, or to any length as restricted by the video storing and displaying technology utilized or under the sole discretion of MOBER. No Client Content found on the Services may be re-posted anywhere else by any Client without express written permission from MOBER.
(d) Clients desiring to revise or remove any Client Content should contact MOBER at email@example.com.

(e) Clients agree to help build a community of trust and safety by not only abiding by the rules and regulations herein, but by protecting the safety and integrity of the community and the Site, App and Services by reporting any improper use, harassment or other violations by other Clients.

Our Agent for Notice of Copyright Claims can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

10. No Warranty and Limitation of Liability.
MOBER PROVIDES THE MOBER SERVICES ON AN "AS IS" AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. MOBER DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, INTEGRATION, INTEROPERABILITY OR QUIET ENJOYMENT. MOBER MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED ON THE MOBER SITE, APP AND SERVICES OR ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED. MOBER DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SERVICES OR THE SERVERS THAT MAKE THE SERVICES AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
You understand and agree that you use the Services at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damages that arise from such use. In no event shall we be liable to you or any third party for any lost profit or any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages arising from or relating to this Agreement or your use of, or inability to use, the Site, App or Services, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Access to, and use of, the Site, App or Services are at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting therefrom. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions may not apply to you.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed solely and exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any law that would result in the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Except for either party’s claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes between you and MOBER arising under or related in any way to this Agreement, must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to your use of any of MOBER’s Site, App or Services. You agree that by entering into this agreement, you and MOBER are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You and MOBER agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and MOBER must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) will take place in Los Angeles, CA, unless otherwise mutually agreed upon by both parties. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California. Claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall be exclusively brought in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California.
This Agreement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we may notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us (if any) and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Site. Any changes to this agreement will be effective upon the earlier of thirty (30) calendar days following our dispatch of an e-mail notice to you (if applicable) or thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on our Site. These changes will be effective immediately for new users of our Site, App or Services. You are responsible for providing us with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. Continued use of our Site, App or Services following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Site, App or Services. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word including means “including without limitation”. If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Your relationship to MOBER is that of a Client and/or consumer of services and will never be construed to be that of an employee, agent or partner of the other. This Agreement, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without MOBER’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon assignees.
