You may not use or display any trademarks or service marks owned by Slight without Slight’s prior written consent.
    5. Pursuant to Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to legal@slight.co or DMCA Agent, c/o Slight Technologies, Inc., 137 Montague St. #103, Brooklyn, NY 11201. If you have knowledge or evidence or in good faith believe that your or another person’s or entity’s copyrights are being violated, you may request that Slight delete, edit, or disable the infringing information by submitting a takedown request to the DMCA Agent containing the following information (the “Takedown Request”):
      1. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address;
      2. An identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
      3. The exact URL or a description of where the alleged infringing material is located;
      4. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or applicable law;

    6. Upon receiving a valid Takedown Request, Slight will investigate the claims of copyright infringement and will remove content that appears to infringe the copyright or other intellectual property rights of others, and/or suspend or terminate the rights of any person who is determined to have infringed the copyrights of any other person or entity.
  4. Termination

    1. You are free to stop using the Products at any time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to some or all of the Products with notice to you if:
      1. You are in breach of this Agreement, or
      2. You are using the Products in a manner that would cause a real risk of harm or loss to us or other users.
    2. If we do terminate your access, we will provide you with reasonable advance notice via the email address associated with your account to remedy the activity that prompted us to contact you. If after such notice you fail to take the steps we ask of you, we will terminate or suspend your access to the Products.
    3. In certain instances, however, we will terminate your account immediately without first providing you notice. This typically occurs if:
      1. You are in material breach of this Agreement,
      2. Providing you notice of termination would cause us legal liability or hinder our ability to service our other customers, or
      3. We are prohibited from doing so by applicable law.
    4. We may decide to discontinue the Products in response to new laws or regulations or other unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. If we stop offering some or all of the Products, we will give you reasonable prior notice so that you can export your data. If we discontinue a Product before any annual or monthly subscription period is over, you will receive a pro-rated portion of the fees you have pre-paid.
  5. No Warranties

    1. WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE GREAT SERVICES, BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WE CANNOT GUARANTEE. THEREFORE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SLIGHT AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE PRODUCTS. THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” INCLUDING ANY PRODUCTS PROVIDED ON A “BETA TEST” OR SIMILAR BASIS.
    2. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
  6. Indemnify

    1. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Slight, its parents and affiliates, and its and their officers, directors, employees, consultants, and agents from liability for any and all third-party claims, liabilities, demands, disputes, causes of action, losses, damages, and costs and expenses of any kind resulting from:
      1. Any use of the Products in a manner not authorized by this Agreement;
      2. Any material breach by you of the provisions in this Agreement or the Privacy Policy; and
      3. Any acts or omissions on your behalf which infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate the intellectual property rights of any other person.
    2. You agree to notify Slight immediately if you become aware of (i) an act of infringement, violation, or misappropriation of the intellectual property of any other person, or (ii) any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you.
  7. Limitation of Liability

    1. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SLIGHT, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, CONTRACTORS, AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES RELATED TO LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY.
    2. THESE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SLIGHT OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
    3. IF YOU USE THE SERVICES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL, BUSINESS, OR RE-SALE PURPOSE, SLIGHT, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES RELATED TO LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. SLIGHT AND ITS AFFILIATES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES.
  8. Dispute Resolution

    1. Prior to starting any formal legal proceedings, we would like the chance to resolve your issue ourselves. You agree that before filing a claim against Slight, you will contact us by email at legal@slight.co. Upon receiving notice of your issue, we will attempt to resolve the issue informally. If Slight is unable to resolve the problem within thirty days, you or Slight may bring a formal proceeding.
    2. If we cannot resolve your issue as described above, you agree to resolve any claims relating to this Agreement through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of these arbitration-related provisions, including their enforceability, revocability, or validity.
    3. You acknowledge that arbitration is a substitute for litigation, and that you agree to present any dispute to the arbitrator and not a governmental agency, body, or court.
    4. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing us at legal@slight.co within thirty days of first registering your account. However, if you agreed to a previous version of this Agreement that allowed you to opt out of arbitration, your previous choice to opt out or not opt out remains binding.
    5. 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, New York, New York, or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.
    6. You may only resolve disputes with us 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 are not allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section VIII will be deemed void.
  9. Miscellaneous

    1. This Agreement is governed by Delaware law except for its conflicts of laws principles. You and Slight agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to this Agreement or the Products will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York, New York, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions above. Both you and Slight consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
    2. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Slight with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or other terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement creates no third-party beneficiary rights. You acknowledge that any adjustment or amendment to this Agreement must be in writing, signed by you and an authorized employee of Slight.
    3. Slight’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. Our rights under this Agreement survive any transfer or termination of this Agreement.
    4. You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement, and any such attempt will be void. Slight may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
    5. If any part of this Agreement is held or found to be invalid or unenforceable, that portion of the Agreement will be construed to be consistent with applicable law while the remaining portions of the Agreement remain in full force and effect.
