Some states prohibit the limitation of warranties as set forth herein. If any part of these warranty disclaimers or limitations of liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason or if we are otherwise found to be liable to you in any manner, then our aggregate liability for all claims under such circumstances for all liabilities, shall not exceed the greater of (1) the amount paid by you to purchase the FiLIP Device from an authorized reseller or (2) one hundred dollars ($100).
Your sole remedies, and FiLIP’s sole obligations, are as set forth under the section entitled “Limited Warranty for the Device”, for you to stop using the FiLIP Service or the dollar limitation set forth above.
Changes: We may change, suspend or terminate the FiLIP Service at any time without notice. In addition, these FiLIP Terms of Service may be changed at any time without prior notice. We will make such changes by posting them on the FiLIP site located at www.myfilip.com/legal/termsofservice or otherwise informing you of such changes. You should check for such changes frequently. Your continued access of the FiLIP Service after such changes conclusively demonstrates your acceptance of those changes.

Governing Law: The laws of the State of New York shall govern these Terms of Service and, subject to the arbitration section below, YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN THE COURTS LOCATED IN NEW YORK COUNTY, NEW YORK FOR ALL MATTERS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF THE FILIP SERVICE. Any claims asserted by you in connection with the FiLIP Service must be asserted in writing to FiLIP within one (1) year of the date such claim first arose, or such claim is forever waived by you. Notwithstanding the arbitration section below, FiLIP may seek an injunction in a court of competent jurisdiction to the extent necessary to prevent any harm to any party or liability to FiLIP.
Arbitration: You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in connection with any dispute relating to, concerning, or arising out of these Terms of Service or the FiLIP Service. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator and will be held at the AAA location in New York County, New York. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this paragraph. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, FiLIP will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitration before the AAA shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. The arbitrator’s authority to resolve and make written awards is limited to claims between you and us alone. Claims may not be joined on consolidated unless agreed to in a writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. If you initiate a litigation or any other proceeding against FiLIP in violation of this paragraph, you agree to pay FiLIP’s reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with its enforcement of this paragraph.
Severability: If any part of these Terms of Service shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms of Service.
Waiver; Remedies: The failure by us to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of any breach of these Terms of Service by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by us or be deemed a waiver by us of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms of Service. Our rights and remedies under these Terms of Service shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit our right to exercise any other right or remedy.
Export: You may not use or otherwise export or re-export the FiLIP Service except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the FiLIP Service was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the FiLIP Service may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By using the FiLIP Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list.
FCC: The FiLIP Device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) The FiLIP Device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This equipment complies with FCC RF radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. For body-worn operation and use near the head, the FiLIP Device has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with the wrist strap supplied with this product. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. The maximum SAR value reported for body worn operation is 1.15 W/kg. The maximum SAR value reported against the head is 0.23 W/kg.
Third Parties: Platform providers, such as AT&T®, Apple®, Google® and other third party carriers, platform or software providers and device manufacturers (“Platform Providers”) are not parties to these Terms of Service. Except as otherwise agreed in writing between you and the applicable Platform Provider, Platform Providers have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the FiLIP Service. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Platform Providers will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the FiLIP Service. Except as otherwise agreed in writing between you and the applicable Platform Provider, You acknowledge that Platform Providers are not responsible for addressing any claims relating to the FiLIP Service or your possession and/or use of the FiLIP Service, including but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the FiLIP Service fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. We, not the Platform Providers, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim by the FiLIP Device. Platform Providers are third party beneficiaries of these Terms of Service, and Platform Providers will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms of Service against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. You represent that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
