If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to uninstall or discontinue using the Services. This Agreement will also govern any software upgrades and/or updates provided by M2 that upgrade and/or supplement a Service, unless such upgrades and/or updates are accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that separate license will apply.

12. Disclaimer of Warranties
THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. M2 DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM M2 OR ELSEWHERE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT. M2 DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT: (I) THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR WILL BE ERROR FREE OR THAT ANY ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; (II) THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED; OR (III) THE ACCURACY, TIMELINESS, COMPLETENESS, OR ADEQUACY OF THE SERVICES AND ANY DATA ACCESSED THEREFROM. INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICES MAY BE DELAYED, INACCURATE, OR CONTAIN ERRORS OR OMISSIONS, AND M2 GROUP (DEFINED BELOW) WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT THERETO. M2 MAY CHANGE OR DISCONTINUE ANY ASPECT OR FEATURE OF THE SERVICES OR THE USE OF ALL OR ANY FEATURES OR TECHNOLOGY IN THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE TO YOU. YOUR ONLY RIGHT OR REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY PROBLEMS OR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICES IS TO UNINSTALL AND CEASE USE OF IT. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
13. Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL M2, ITS AFFILIATED ENTITIES OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR AUTHORIZED AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “M2 GROUP”) BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES FOR LOST DATA, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOST REVENUE, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE INSTALLATION OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING PRODUCTS LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY AND NEGLIGENCE), AND WHETHER OR NOT THE M2 GROUP WERE OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OR ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY STATED HEREIN. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, IN NO EVENT SHALL M2’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT POSSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU FOR THE SERVICES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SUCH AS FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold M2 harmless from and against any and all claims, suits, losses, liability, costs or expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys fees) arising from or incurred as a result of your use of the Services, including your downloading, installation, or use of the Services, or your violation of these Terms.
15. Applicable Law
These Terms shall be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions.
16. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
This section applies to any dispute EXCEPT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE A DISPUTE RELATING TO THE ENFORCEMENT OR VALIDITY OF M2’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. Dispute means any dispute, action, or other controversy between you and M2 concerning the Services (including their price) or this agreement, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
If you and M2 do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation, any effort to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration. You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor M2 will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and in many cases its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. For more information, see www.adr.org or call 1-800-778-7879. You agree that arbitration shall be held in Orange County, California.
To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute against M2 relating to this Agreement or the Services must be submitted by you to binding arbitration as described above within one year. The one-year period begins on the date when the claim or dispute first could be filed. Any claim or dispute that is not filed in an arbitration proceeding within that time is permanently barred. This section applies to you and your successors and assigns.
17. Term and Termination
Your license to use the Services under these Terms shall continue until it is terminated by either party. You may terminate these Terms at any time, by discontinuing the use of all or any of the Services. These Terms and the license granted to you under these Terms will terminate automatically if you breach any term of these Terms. Upon termination, you must promptly destroy and/or delete all copies of the Services in your possession or control, if applicable. Sections 2, 3, 4, 6 through 16, 18 and 19 shall survive the termination of these Terms.
(a) These Terms and all the policies referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between M2 and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and it may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of M2.
(b) The section titles in these Terms are provided solely for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance.
(c) The failure of either party to enforce any rights granted hereunder or to take action against the other party in the event of any breach hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver by that party as to subsequent enforcement of rights or subsequent actions in the event of future breaches.
(d) If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of these Terms shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect. M2 reserves the right, at our discretion, to update or revise these Terms.
(e) Except as required by law, the controlling language of these Terms is English. In the event of inconsistency or discrepancy between the English version and any other language version, the English language version shall prevail.
(f) You may not assign your rights under these Terms to any party without M2’s consent.
(g) If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
(h) Nothing in these Terms will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship between you and M2, and you do not have any authority to create any obligation or make any representation on M2’s behalf.

19. Third Party Beneficiaries
You acknowledge that third party application marketplaces, including but not limited to Google Play, may be third party beneficiaries of these Terms and upon your acceptance of these Terms such stores or marketplaces may have the right to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary. You further acknowledge and agree that such parties are not parties to these Terms other than as third party beneficiaries and are not responsible for providing maintenance and support services with respect to the Services.
