Terms of Service


SUMMARY OF TERMS

WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT? We here at Yonomi Inc. ( “Yonomi”) are super excited that you have decided to use our mobile application that enables you to integrate and manage your smart devices (each, a “Device”) through one seamless experience (our “Application”). Like most mobile applications, we have some legal terms that you need to agree to – our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The main purpose of the Terms of Use is to describe the permitted uses of the Application, while our Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and share data from users of the Application.

GIVE ME THE GIST. The following Terms of Use can feel like a legal document, because, well, it is a legal document. You should read it all, but here are some key points you should be aware of:

  • Use. You may use our Application for your personal or internal organizational use in connection with your Devices. You MAY NOT resell, distribute, disassemble or use our Application for your own commercial purposes.
  • No Fees. Our Application is free to download and use, though we may offer premium features and/or services in the future for a fee.
  • Limited Liability. In order for us to keep our Application free, we don’t offer any support or warranty services, and our liability is limited.
  • Arbitration. You are agreeing to waive any right to a class action suit and a jury trial. So, if there’s ever a dispute between us that we cannot resolve informally, we will both submit to arbitration to resolve it.

TERMS OF USE

These Terms of Use ( “Terms”) are a legal agreement between you and Yonomi Inc. ( “Yonomi”“we”“us”, or “our”). Please read these terms carefully. By clicking the “I agree” (or similar) button or downloading, installing or using the application which accompanies these Terms (the “Application”), you represent and warrant that (1) you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms, (2) you are of legal age to form a binding agreement with Yonomi, and (3) you have the authority to enter into these Terms personally or on behalf of the entity you have named as the user (in which case, “you” includes that entity), and to bind that entity to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not use the Application.

THESE TERMS INCLUDE A CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND A WAIVER OF JURY TRIALS, AND REQUIRE BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES. THESE TERMS LIMIT THE REMEDIES THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TERMS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY YONOMI IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION AT ANY TIME. When changes are made, Yonomi will make a new copy of the Terms available at www.yonomi.co (the “Website”) and from within the Application. We will also update the “Last Updated” date on the Terms. If you have registered with us to create an Account (as defined below), we may also send you an email to the last e-mail address you provided to us. We may require you to provide consent to the updated Terms in a specified manner before further use of the Website, the Application or the services made available via the Website and Application (the “Services”) is permitted. If you do not agree to any change(s) after receiving a notice of such change(s), you shall stop using the Application and/or Services. Otherwise, your continued use of the Application and/or Services constitutes your acceptance of such changes. PLEASE REGULARLY CHECK THE WEBSITE TO VIEW THE THEN-CURRENT TERMS.

Your use of, and participation in, certain services may be subject to additional terms ( “Supplemental Terms”) and such Supplemental Terms will either be listed in these Terms or will be presented to you when you sign up to use the supplemental service.

You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and Yonomi, and do not involve the App Store company. Yonomi, not the App Store, is solely responsible for the Application, including the content thereof, maintenance, support services, and warranty therefor, and addressing any claims relating thereto (e.g., product liability, legal compliance and intellectual property infringement).

    2. Assignment. You may not assign or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, any of your rights under these Terms (including any licenses granted herein) to any third party without our prior written consent.

    4. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution. These Terms will be governed by and construed under the laws of the United States and the State of Colorado, without giving effect to any principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.

    8. Export Control. You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Application or Services except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Application, and any other applicable laws. In particular, but without limitation, the Application may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States 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’s Denied Persons List or Entity List. By using the Application, you represent and warrant that (i) 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 (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You also will not use the Application or Services for any purpose prohibited by U.S. law, including the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons. You acknowledge and agree that products, services or technology provided by Yonomi are subject to the export control laws and regulations of the United States. You shall comply with these laws and regulations and shall not, without prior U.S. government authorization, export, re-export, or transfer Yonomi products, services or technology, either directly or indirectly, to any country in violation of such laws and regulations.

  12. Dispute Resolution. Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with Yonomi and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
    1. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by Yonomi that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and Yonomi, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.
    2. Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to Yonomi should be sent to the address noted herein. After the Notice is received, you and Yonomi may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and Yonomi do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
    3. Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider ( “ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise. If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearing. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
    4. Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
    5. Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Yonomi, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the JAMS Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Yonomi.
    6. Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and Yonomi in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND YONOMI WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
    7. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Arbitration Agreement or Terms, neither you nor Yonomi is entitled to arbitration of such claim or dispute. Instead, all such claims and disputes will then be resolved in a court as set forth in the Terms.
    8. Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
    9. Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
    10. Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
    11. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Yonomi.
    12. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Yonomi may bring an individual action in small claims court.
    13. Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
    14. Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Denver County, Colorado, for such purpose.
