Order and Payment Information
If you use the Sites or other means to purchase a product, payment must be received by uVodi prior to uVodi’s acceptance of an order, unless otherwise agreed by uVodi. All uVodi products are subject to sales tax which will be applied to your order total. uVodi may need to verify information you provide before uVodi accepts an order, and may cancel or limit an order any time after it has been placed. If payment has already been made and your order is cancelled or limited, uVodi will refund any payment you made for the product that will not be shipped due to cancellation or limitation of an order in the same tender as the original purchase. uVodi expressly conditions its acceptance of your order on your agreement to these Terms and Conditions.
In ordering products through the Sites or otherwise, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current, and complete information. You hereby certify that any email account you provide to uVodi is registered to you. uVodi shall have the right to bar your access to and use of the Sites or its other products or services if it has reasonable grounds to believe that you have provided untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete information to uVodi, or for any other reason it, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. You agree that if you are ordering or purchasing products on behalf of a company, that you have sufficient authority to bind that company to the Terms and Conditions.

uVodi does not directly sell certain uVodi products in any jurisdiction other than the United States of America as these products may not be approved for sale in other jurisdictions. While uVodi may choose to accept orders for the purchase of its products from non-residents of the U.S., the acceptance of such orders and the sale of such products will only be based on the following conditions precedent:
· you agree that the purchase of any uVodi products by you, as a non-resident of the U.S., shall be (a) ex works uVodi facilities in the U.S. per Incoterms 2010, with all title risk and loss in the products passing to you in the U.S. and (b) for your own personal use only and not for further resale or distribution in any manner;

· the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to any purchase or sale, and uVodi expressly opts out of such application.
Unless otherwise noted, uVodi will use commercially reasonable efforts to ship products within a reasonable time after receipt of your properly completed order. Although uVodi may provide delivery or shipment timeframes or dates, you understand that those are uVodi’s good-faith estimates and may be subject to change. You further understand that product availability may be limited and particular products may not be available for immediate delivery, in which case the products will be delivered when they become available. uVodi shall not be liable for any loss, damage, cost, or expense related to any delay in shipment or delivery.
The delivery time for shipments to P.O. Boxes within the United States or for shipments outside the United States, including to U.S. territories, Alaska and Hawaii, may take up to 7-21 days.
The Subscription Contract Between You and Us
uVodi offers various subscription types, including rebillable monthly subscriptions (“Monthly Subscriptions”).
Automatic renewal terms
With respect of uVodi subscriptions subject to automatic renewal, you agree that uVodi may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) to your chosen payment method without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice that you wish to terminate this authorization or to change your payment method. You agree that such notice will not affect charges submitted before uVodi reasonably could act.
By purchasing a Monthly Subscription, you agree and acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment charge at the then-current subscription rate and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including where applicable any charges processed by uVodi after the expiration date of your payment card.
Automatic monthly renewal terms
Your subscription will be automatically renewed for successive monthly periods and your payment method will automatically be charged for each successive monthly period at the then-current subscription rate until you cancel your Monthly Subscription renewal.
Cancellation policy for monthly subscription renewals
To cancel your Monthly Subscription at any time, you may (i) logon to your account and follow the cancellation procedures there, or (ii) send us a message at email@example.com and we will do it for you.

It is the express intent of the parties that the Terms and Conditions and all related documents have been drawn up in English.
DISPUTES, BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS
Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and uVodi. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and uVodi arising under or relating to the Products, the Sites, this Agreement, or any other transaction involving you and uVodi, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND UVODI AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU OR UVODI FOR (A) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (B) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (C) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR MISUSE, AND (D) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT OR DILUTION. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, you agree that a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
Binding Arbitration. You and uVodi further agree: (a) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in this Agreement; (b) this Agreement memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce; (c) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section; and (d) this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction could, and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. In addition, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court.
Dispute Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or uVodi must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to uVodi must be addressed to: uVodi, Inc., 55 North 3rd Street, Campbell, CA 95008, U.S.A., Attn.: Sheila M. Riley (the “uVodi Notice Address”). The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If uVodi and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or uVodi may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.
WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS. YOU AND UVODI AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. ACCORDINGLY, UNDER THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS SECTION, AN ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT COMBINE OR CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY’S CLAIMS WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL AFFECTED PARTIES TO AN ARBITRATION PROCEEDING.
Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration shall be governed by the rules of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”), available at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267, and under the rules set forth in this Agreement, except that JAMS may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration shall be limited to the resolution only of individual claims. If there is a conflict between the JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement shall govern. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to federal, state, or local laws. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is for (a) trade secret misappropriation, (b) patent infringement, (c) copyright infringement or misuse, or (d) trademark infringement or dilution, which are excluded from the definition of “Disputes” as stated above. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence, or in Santa Clara County, California, at your option.
(a) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If either you or uVodi decide to arbitrate a Dispute, we agree to the following procedure:
(i) Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Dispute and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at http://www.jamsadr.com (“Demand for Arbitration”).
(ii) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to:
(iii) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party at the same address as the Dispute Notice, or as otherwise agreed to by the parties.
(b) Hearing Format. In all hearing formats, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision that explains the essential findings and conclusions on which an award, if any, is based. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by uVodi or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or uVodi is entitled. The discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute may be allowed during the arbitration.
(c) Arbitration Fees. The prevailing party shall pay for all JAMS filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration commenced (by you or uVodi) pursuant to provisions of this Agreement.
(d) Opt-out. You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Agreement by sending a written letter to the uVodi Notice Address within thirty (30) days of your assent to this Agreement (including the purchase of any Product or the use of the Sites) that specifies (i) your name, (ii) your mailing address, and (iii) your request to be excluded from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Section. In the event that you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms shall continue to apply, including the requirement to provide notice prior to arbitration.
Amendments to this Section. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you and uVodi agree that if uVodi makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to uVodi’s address) in this Agreement, uVodi will notify you and you will have thirty (30) days from the date of notice to affirmatively opt-out of any such amendments. If you affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Section as stated in this current Agreement, without any of the proposed amendments governing. If you do not affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you will be deemed to have consented to any such future amendments.
Severability. If any provision in this Section is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of this Agreement remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions; if the prohibition against class or representative actions is found to be unenforceable, this entire Section shall be null and void. The terms of this Section shall otherwise survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
Exclusive Venue for Other Controversies
uVodi and you agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Agreement (other than an individual action filed in small claims court) shall be filed only in the state and federal courts of Santa Clara County, California, and each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy.
The Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between uVodi and you with respect to your use of the Sites, your purchase of products and services through the Sites, and as applicable any products or services of uVodi. Any cause of action you may have with respect to the Sites or uVodi’s products or services must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises, notwithstanding any statutes of limitation to the contrary. The section titles used in the Terms and Conditions are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and uVodi, and you do not have any authority to create any obligation or make any representation on uVodi’s behalf. You may not assign or transfer any rights or obligations of these Terms and Conditions, by operation of law or otherwise, without uVodi’s written consent. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms and Conditions will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable against you and uVodi and their respective successors and assigns.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
Other important terms

We may assign, transfer, or sub-contract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions to any third party at our discretion. No delay by us in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms and Conditions shall operate as waiver of that right or remedy or shall affect our ability to subsequently exercise that right or remedy. Any waiver must be agreed by us in writing.
