Last Revised: April 7, 2016

The following Terms of Service (“Agreement”) govern your use of PastureMap, Inc.’s (“PastureMap,” “PastureMap, Inc.,” “us,” “we,” and “our,”) website available at www.PastureMap.com and all content or information therein and any subdomains thereof (collectively, the “Site”), software, mobile applications for mobile devices that we may make available through our Site or a third party app store or site, offering similar features to those available on our Site (“Apps”), and our products and services (collectively, the “Service”).

Please read this Agreement and our Privacy Policy located at www.PastureMap.com/privacy  (“Privacy Policy”) before using our Site and Service. This Agreement is legally binding and governs your use of our Apps, Site and Service. By using or accessing any part of our Site or Service you (“you” or “User”) agree to be bound by this Agreement and the Privacy Policy.

We may amend this Agreement from time to time and we ask you to check the Service periodically as this Agreement may have changed. When we change this Agreement in a material manner, we will notify you by email or by posting an announcement on the Service. Your continued use of our App, Site or Service after any change constitutes your acceptance of the new Agreement. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Agreement, you may not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Service.

THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.

Use of the Service

Eligibility.  The Service is not directed at children younger than 18 years of age. The Service is intended solely for Users who are 18 years of age or older, and any use or access to the Service by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. PastureMap does not knowingly collect, use or solicit personal information about or from children aged 13 or younger. If we learn that PastureMap has collected information from a child aged 13 or younger, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. By using the Service, you represent to us that you are 18 years of age or older and are legally competent to enter into and agree to this Agreement.

Changes, Suspension of Access, and Certain Terminations.  We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to users generally; or create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service (including the right to cancel any mobile application or hosted sites) without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, your right to use the Service will immediately cease, and may result in the immediate deletion of any User Content that you have submitted to PastureMap. If you wish to terminate your use of the Service, you may notify PastureMap at support@PastureMap.com or simply discontinue using the Service to the extent you do not have a subscription with PastureMap.

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, 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. YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE AND ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE.

Limitations on Liability

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL PASTUREMAP, ITS AFFILIATES, OR ITS OR THEIR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PERSON CLAIMING THROUGH OR UNDER YOU FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE, GOODWILL, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS OR LOST DATA, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, ARISING FROM YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE SITE AND APPS, OR ANY OF THE PASTUREMAP CONTENT OR OTHER MATERIALS ON, ACCESSED THROUGH OR DOWNLOADED FROM THE SITE OR APPS, EVEN IF PASTUREMAP IS AWARE OR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, PASTUREMAP SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING FROM OR IN RELATION TO HACKING, TAMPERING OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICE, OR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH PASTUREMAP OR ANY OTHER USE OF THE SERVICE.

YOU AGREE THAT THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER PROVISIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT THAT LIMIT LIABILITY ARE ESSENTIAL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT PASTUREMAP WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO GRANT YOU THE RIGHTS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT BUT FOR THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY; YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY TO INDUCE PASTUREMAP TO GRANT YOU THE RIGHTS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

The Service is controlled and offered by PastureMap from its facilities in California. PastureMap makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold PastureMap, its affiliates, or its or their directors, officers, employees, agents, suppliers or licensors (each, an “Indemnitee”) harmless from any damages, liabilities, claims or demands (including costs and attorneys’ fees) made by any third party due to or arising out of: (i) your use of and access to the PastureMap Site and Service; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that any of your content caused damage to a third party. PastureMap reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify an Indemnitee under this Agreement and you agree to cooperate with our defense of such claims. You agree not to settle any such claim without PastureMap’s prior written consent. PastureMap will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the PastureMap Service.

Arbitration and Governing Law

Arbitration.  ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY.  THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, 9 U.S.C. §§1 ET. SEQ. (“FAA”) AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO THIS AGREEMENT. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED.  HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AS A COURT WOULD.

If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice to PastureMap of your intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to PastureMap should be sent by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to PastureMap, Inc., 11581 Seven Springs Dr., Cupertino, CA 95014. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought.  The arbitration will be conducted by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”), in accordance with the CPR Rules for Administered Arbitration.  The CPR Rules for Administered Arbitration are available at www.cpradr.org or by calling 1-212-949-6490.     

The arbitration will be conducted by a panel of three arbitrators, of whom each party shall designate one, with the third arbitrator to be designated by the two party-appointed arbitrators.  Such arbitration shall be conducted in San Francisco, California, in the English language.  The arbitrators shall establish procedures under which each party will be entitled to conduct discovery.  The arbitrators shall award only such damages as are permitted to be awarded pursuant to this Agreement.  The arbitrators must render their award within 30 days following the last hearing scheduled by the arbitrators and at that time state the reasons for their award in writing.  Except as set forth below, the arbitral award shall be final, binding and incontestable and judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  An appeal may be taken under the CPR Arbitration Appeal Procedure from any final award of an arbitral panel in any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement that is conducted in accordance with such procedure.  Unless otherwise agreed by the parties and the appeal tribunal, the appeal shall be conducted at the place of the original arbitration.

Except as otherwise provided for herein, PastureMap will pay all CPR filing, administration and arbitrator fees.  If, however, the arbitrators find that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is improper or not warranted, as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b), then the payment of all such fees shall be governed by the CPR Rules.  In such case, you agree to reimburse PastureMap for all monies previously disbursed by us that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the CPR Rules.   

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. 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 court for injunctive relief, including to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Governing Law.  This Agreement is governed by the FAA and the internal laws of the State of California, without reference to principles of conflicts of laws or choice of law rules.  For any actions for which either party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, we each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Santa Clara County, California or the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, and you hereby waive all defenses for lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to such courts.

Miscellaneous

Force Majeure.  You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.

Entire Agreement; Severability; Interpretation. This Agreement, together with the Privacy Policy, set forth the entire understanding between you and PastureMap with respect to the matters contained herein and there are no promises, covenants or undertakings other than those expressly set forth herein. In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it. If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other's operation, PastureMap shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force. The headings and captions contained herein will not be considered to be part of this Agreement but are for convenience only.

Non-Waiver.  We reserve all rights permitted to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or the any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.

Assignment.  The rights granted to you under this Agreement are not assignable or transferable, in whole or in part. Any attempt to transfer this Agreement without the written consent of PastureMap shall be void and of no force and effect. PastureMap may freely assign this Agreement, whether to an affiliate or to another entity in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon each party’s successors and permitted assigns.

Amendments.  We may amend this Agreement from time to time. When we amend this Agreement, we will update this page and indicate the date that it was last modified. You may refuse to agree to the amendments, but if you do, you must immediately cease using our website and our Service. You must visit this page each time you come to our website and read and agree to it if the date it was last modified is more recent than the last time you agreed to the Agreement.

Privacy.  You understand that by using the Service you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information and aggregate data as set forth in and in accordance with our Privacy Policy, and to have your personally identifiable information collected, stored, used, transferred to and processed in the United States.

Remedies.  Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise. 

California Users and Residents.  Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of information which we share with our affiliates or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates or third parties.
