Your Account:


If you use the Websites or Applications, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, smartphone or tablet, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. The Websites and Applications sell products to adults, who can purchase with a credit card.

Roovy Technologies has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites, applications or devices. In addition, Roovy Technologies will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site, application or device. By using the Websites or Applications, you expressly relieve Roovy Technologies from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website, application or device. Accordingly, we encourage you to be aware when you leave the Websites or Applications and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each other website, application and device that you visit.


Website and Application Access:


Roovy Technologies hereby grants you permission to use the Websites and Applications as set forth in this Terms of Use, provided that: (i) your use of the Websites and Applications as permitted are solely for your personal, noncommercial use; (ii) you will not copy or distribute any part of the Websites or Applications in any medium without Roovy Technologies prior written authorization; (iii) you will not alter or modify any part of the Websites or Applications other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Websites or Applications for their intended purpose; and (iv) you will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use.

Although Roovy Technologies will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of Roovy Technologies or others due to such unauthorized use.
You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc., that accesses the Websites or Applications in a manner that sends more request messages to the Roovy Technologies servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a convention on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Roovy Technologies grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Roovy Technologies reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

Arbitration


BECAUSE OF THE MUTUAL BENEFITS (SUCH AS REDUCED EXPENSE AND INCREASED EFFICIENCY) WHICH PRIVATE BINDING ARBITRATION CAN PROVIDE, BOTH YOU AND ROOVY TECHNOLOGIES AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, AND/OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE OR THE APPLICATIONS, ANY PRODUCTS SOLD BY ROOVY TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR THE APPLICATIONS, THESE TERMS OF USE, OR THE SCOPE OR VALIDITY OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO AND RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. ALL MATTERS RELATING TO ARBITRATION WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, 9 U.S.C. SECTIONS 1‐16, AND NOT BY ANY STATE ARBITRATION LAW.

 

Any arbitration pursuant to the Privacy Policy or Terms of Use shall be initiated with and conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, both of which may be obtained at http://www.adr.org or by calling (800)778‐7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in Harris County, Texas. Nothing herein shall prevent Roovy Technologies or you from obtaining from a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunctive relief to preserve the status quo or to prevent any irreparable harm pending the arbitration of the underlying claim, dispute, and/or controversy.  


The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted by a single arbitrator. In addition to any requirements imposed by law, the arbitrator shall be a retired state or federal court judge, or a licensed attorney with arbitration experience and at least ten years’ experience as a lawyer and shall be subject to disqualification on the same grounds as would apply to a judge of a court in the relevant jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall follow controlling law and issue a decision in writing within the time allotted and with a supporting opinion based on applicable law. The decision of the arbitrator (the “Decision”) shall be final, binding, and conclusive on the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction; provided, however, that You and Roovy Technologies agree that the Decision may be appealed pursuant to the AAA’s Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules (“Appellate Rules”), which may be obtained at http://www.adr.org or by calling (800)778‐7879. The Decision shall not be considered final until after the time for filing the notice of appeal pursuant to the Appellate Rules has expired. Appeals must be initiated within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Decision, as defined by Rule A-3 of the Appellate Rules, by filing a Notice of Appeal with any AAA office. The single appellate arbitrator, who shall be chosen in the same manner described above, shall review the Decision applying the same standard(s) of review applicable in civil cases in the relevant jurisdiction and shall issue a reasoned award. The appellate arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding and conclusive on the parties, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. At either party’s election, such decision and supporting opinion may be appealed to another arbitrator (“appellate arbitrator”), who shall be chosen in the same manner as described above. The appellate arbitrator shall apply to the underlying decision and opinion the same standard for review of civil cases as an appellate court in the relevant jurisdiction and issue a decision in writing with a supporting opinion based on such review and applicable law. The appellate arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding and conclusive on the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. 


WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT ON A CLASS-WIDE, COLLECTIVE, MULTIPLE‐PARTY, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL BASIS. WE ALSO AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION PROCEEDING BETWEEN US MAY NOT BE CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION BETWEEN ROOVY TECHNOLOGIES AND ANY OTHER PERSON. YOU AND ROOVY TECHNOLOGIES BOTH UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION, BOTH ARE GIVING UP THEIR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY INDIVIDUAL, CLASS-WIDE, COLLECTIVE, MULTIPLE‐PARTY, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR OTHER CLAIM EITHER MAY HAVE AGAINST THE OTHER, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN.


Should any term or provision or portion of this arbitration agreement be declared void or unenforceable or deemed in contravention of law, it shall be severed and/or modified and the remainder of this agreement shall be enforceable; provided, however, that if the provision above prohibiting class-wide, collective action, consolidated, or other group arbitration is deemed invalid, then this entire arbitration provision shall be null and void and shall not apply to that dispute, which shall be resolved in a judicial proceeding in Harris County, Texas.
You agree that the exclusive venue for resolving any dispute between Roovy Technologies and you, including but not limited to any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement, shall be the state and federal courts located in Harris County, Texas, and you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Harris County, Texas. You further acknowledge and agree that many of the witnesses and records that would be relevant to any dispute between the parties are located in Houston, Texas, and that Houston, Texas, would not be an inconvenient forum for the resolution of any dispute between the parties. You hereby waive any objection to Houston, Texas, as a forum and venue for the hearing of any dispute between Roovy Technologies and you.
