THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN HYKSO AND YOU.
You agree that any dispute between you and Hykso arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, the Hykso Service, or any other Hykso products or services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Governing Law: The Terms of Service and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
Informal Dispute Resolution: We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Hykso, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting [email protected]. We’ll try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after submission, you or Hykso may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate: You and Hykso agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting [email protected] within 30 days of first accepting these Terms of Service and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement. Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, San Francisco, California, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Hykso will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. Hykso will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or Hykso may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Orange County (CA) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Hykso products or Hykso Service, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
No Class Actions: You may only resolve Disputes with Hykso on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed under our agreement.
Judicial Forum for Disputes: In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Hykso agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California. Both you and Hykso consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Limitation on Claims: Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Hykso products or Hykso Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Hykso and you regarding the Hykso Service, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Hykso and you regarding the Hykso Service and Hykso Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Hykso’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Hykso may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Hykso under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Hykso Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt on the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Hykso’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Hykso. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.

You acknowledge that you have verified the compatibility of the Products you are purchasing with other required equipment (e.g., ensuring that your mobile device and/or operating system system is compatible with the Product). You are solely responsible for determining the compatibility of the Products with other equipment, and you accept that lack of compatibility is not a valid claim under the warranty provided with your Products and does not otherwise constitute a basis for receiving a refund after the 30-day refund policy identified above.
LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL HYKSO BE LIABLE FOR ANY PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF REVENUE, USE, PROFITS, DATA, OR GOODWILL) OR COSTS OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS, ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE PURCHASE, SALE, USE, OPERATION OR PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED UPON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER OR NOT HYKSO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. HYKSO AND YOU HAVE AGREED THAT THESE LIMITATIONS WILL SURVIVE AND APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY SPECIFIED IN THESE TERMS IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL HYKSO’S LIABILITY TO YOU ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, EXCEED THE ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID TO HYKSO’S BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCT THAT GIVES RISE TO THE CLAIM. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

If you are a copyright owner, or are authorized to act on behalf of one, or authorized to act under any exclusive right under copyright, and believe that any material available on or through the Hykso website, including applications, products, user-generated content, posts or materials on user forums, or any other content (collectively referred to as “Content”), infringes upon your copyrights, you may report alleged copyright infringements by providing the information in the following DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement (“Notice”) and delivering it to Hykso’s Designated Copyright Agent identified below. Upon receipt of the Notice, we will take whatever action, in our sole discretion, we deem appropriate, including removal of the Content. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we may notify the owner or administrator of the Content so that he or she can make a counter notification.
Please note that filing a report of intellectual property infringement is a serious matter with legal consequences. Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing could be liable for damages pursuant to section 512(f) of the DMCA or similar laws in other jurisdictions or countries. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the notice requirements below, your copyright notice may not be valid.
