To access the Online Services or some of the resources they have to offer, you may be asked to provide registration details. It is a condition of use of the Online Services that all the details you provide be correct, current, and complete. If we at UPHE believe the details are not correct, current, or complete, we have the right to refuse you access to the Online Services, or any of their resources, and to terminate or suspend your account.
You may not either directly or through the use of any personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (each a "Device") or other means remove, alter, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent (a) any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on the Online Services or Content, (b) any digital rights management mechanism, tool, technology or other content protection or access control measure associated with the Online Services or Content, or (c) any advertisement on the Online Services and/or within Content. You may not either directly or through the use of any Device or other means copy, download, stream, reproduce, duplicate, archive, distribute, upload, publish, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, display, sell, transmit or re-transmit Content unless expressly permitted by UPHE in writing. You may not incorporate Content into, or stream or retransmit Content via, any hardware or software application or make it available via frames or in-line links, or scrape or aggregate Content from the Site or Online Services. You may not build a business, in whole or in part, or create derivative works or materials utilizing any portion of the Online Services or Content, whether or not for profit.
To the extent that UPHE makes Content available to you via a widget, embedded player or other technology that allows you to embed or stream Content on or to another site, you may not modify, enhance, remove, interfere with, or otherwise alter in any way any portion of such technology, any digital rights management mechanism, tool, or other content protection or access control measure associated with Content, or any advertisement delivered with Content.
You are also prohibited from disabling, modifying, interfering with or otherwise circumventing any technology to allow users to view Content without: (i) displaying visibly both the Content and all surrounding elements (including the graphical user interface, any advertising, copyright notices, and trademarks); and (ii) having full access to all functionality permitting viewing of Content, including, without limitation, all video quality and display functionality and all interactive, elective or click-through advertising functionality.
UPHE may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Sites or Online Services at any time without notice or liability.
You are responsible for any charges incurred in obtaining access to the Sites and Online Services. The Sites and Online Services are currently provided for free, although you may be given the opportunity to purchase products or services through the Sites or Online Services from UPHE. UPHE reserves the right to change the nature of this relationship at any time.
If you establish an account with UPHE, you agree to provide true, accurate and current data. Any usernames and passwords used for the Sites and Online Services are for individual use only. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of the password you use to access your account. You agree to immediately notify UPHE of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. You understand and agree that the Sites and/or Online Services may include a social network and your activities (e.g., video viewing, interactions with members and/or advertisers) may be shared with others both on and off the Online Services.
Purchases of usage subscriptions (including credits, points, and/or virtual currency) or any virtual items made available on the Online Services, if any, are nonrefundable, have no monetary value (i.e., are not a cash account or equivalent), and are purchases of only a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, personal, and revocable right to use, whether or not such purchase included a durational term (e.g., a monthly subscription). Accordingly, you have no property, proprietary, intellectual property, ownership, or monetary interest in your usage subscriptions or virtual items, which remain our Content. Your right to use may be immediately suspended or terminated for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability. We may modify usage subscriptions and virtual items at our sole discretion, and such modifications may make the usage subscriptions or virtual items more or less common, valuable, effective, or functional.
We do not recognize the transfer of usage subscriptions or virtual items (including for "real" money or any other consideration or items of value whether inside or outside of the Online Services). Accordingly, you may not purchase, sell, barter, or trade any usage subscriptions or virtual items, or offer to purchase, sell, or trade any usage subscriptions or virtual items. Any such attempted transfer will be null and void.
If we suspend or terminate any usage subscriptions or virtual items, then you will forfeit the suspended or terminated subscription or items, except as may be set forth in any Additional Terms (such as any refund policies that may apply to a subscription service). Likewise, except as may be set forth in any Additional Terms or as required by applicable law, we are not responsible for repairing or replacing such usage subscriptions or virtual items, or providing you any credit or refund or any other sum, in the event of our modification of any usage subscriptions or virtual items, or for loss or damage due to error or any other reason.
(a) Wireless Features. The Online Services may offer certain features and services that are available to you via your wireless Device. These features and services may include the ability to access the Online Services' features and upload content to the Online Services, receive messages from the Online Services, and download applications to your wireless Device (collectively, "Wireless Features"). Standard messaging, data, and other fees may be charged by your carrier to participate in Wireless Features. Fees and charges may appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features and certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Device. You should check with your carrier to find out what plans are available and how much they cost. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues.
(b) Terms of Wireless Features. You agree that as to the Wireless Features for which you are registered for, we may send communications to your wireless Device regarding us or other parties. Further, we may collect information related to your use of the Wireless Features. If you have registered via the Online Services for Wireless Features, then you agree to notify UPHE of any changes to your wireless contact information (including phone number) and update your accounts on the Online Services to reflect the changes.
In addition, where any UPHE Mobile App collects precise information about the location of your Devices, it will be used to provide requested location services, and, depending on the particular Mobile App it may be used, among other uses, to allow tagging or to check-in.
Some Mobile App(s) or feature(s) allow for you to disable location-based features or manage preferences related to them. However, you can terminate Device location tracking by us by uninstalling any Mobile App(s) or feature(s). The location-based services offered in connection with our Mobile App(s) or feature(s) are for individual use only and should not be used or relied on as an emergency locator system, used while driving or operating vehicles, or used in connection with any hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, or any other situation in which the failure, inaccuracy or incorrect use of the location-based services could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or property damage. The location-based services are not suited or intended for family-finding purposes, fleet tracking, or any other type of business or enterprise use — other non- UPHE products exist today that may be used specifically for these purposes.
(d) Social media plug-ins. Social media plug-ins of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus (among others) are integrated into our Sites and other Online Services. Where our Online Services contain a plug-in to a social network, these are clearly marked (e.g., with a Facebook button). If you choose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant social network. The social network directly transmits the content of the plug-in to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant social network and logged into your respective account the social network receives the information that the web page was used by you. If you interact with a social network plug-in (e.g., you press the Facebook "Like" feature, the Twitter "Tweet this" feature, the Google Plus "+1" button or equivalent) or leave a comment on the relevant web page, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to the relevant social network from your browser. If you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out before you visit our Online Services, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the social network. If you interact with us through a social media platform, plug-in, etc., then you may be permitting us to have ongoing access to certain limited information from your social network profile (such as your name, social networking ID page, email address, photo, gender, location, the people/websites you follow, etc.).

- Don't Damage Anyone's Device. You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to other Devices, computer systems or networks connected to the Online Services or use the Online Services, Content or any information contained therein for any unlawful purpose.

Idea Submissions Prohibited: UPHE does not accept unsolicited submissions for motion pictures, television programs, websites, articles, streaming video, e-books, or other products or services. Therefore, please do not make any such unsolicited submissions to UPHE through the Online Services, including posts on our Sites or any third party social network or website, by e-mail, text message or otherwise. However, if you decide to make any such unsolicited submission, you hereby grant to UPHE the right and license to the submission as if it were User Content as specifically set forth above. In addition, UPHE retains all of the rights held by members of the general public with regard to your unsolicited ideas and materials. UPHE's receipt of your unsolicited ideas and materials is not an admission by UPHE of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair UPHE’s right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your unsolicited ideas and materials.
Liability for User Content: User Content posted through the Online Services are provided by users like you who are unaffiliated with UPHE, and the user providing User Content is solely responsible for his/her own User Content. This means that you, and not UPHE, are entirely responsible and liable for any claims, loss or damages relating to any and all User Content that you upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via the Online Services. UPHE is not responsible for User Content, accuracy or opinions expressed on the Online Services, and UPHE does not investigate, monitor or check for accuracy or completeness of User Content. You understand that by using the Sites or Online Services, you may be exposed to User Content that is offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, merchants found on or through the Online Services, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such merchant. UPHE will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such merchants on the Online Services.
The Sites and Online Services are not designed or intended for use by children under the age of 13.

IF APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE IMPLIED WARRANTIES TO APPLY TO YOU, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS WILL APPLY TO YOU ONLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
IF YOU ARE ACCESSING A UNITED KINGDOM VERSION OF THE SITES, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL EXCLUDE OR LIMIT LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY RESULTING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF EITHER PARTY OR THEIR SERVANTS, AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES.
NONE OF THE UPHE PARTIES WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES RELATING TO LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL) OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER THAT RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITES OR ONLINE SERVICES. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF UPHE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THIS WAIVER APPLIES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TO ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY ARISING FROM ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DELETION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, FILE CORRUPTION, COMMUNICATION-LINE FAILURE, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGE, OR THEFT, DESTRUCTION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR USE OF ANY RECORD.

IF APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW ALL OR ANY PART OF THE ABOVE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY TO APPLY TO YOU, THE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY TO YOU TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES, THE UPHE PARTIES' LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE LAW OF SUCH JURISDICTION. IN ADDITION, BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Please act responsibly when using the Sites and Online Services. You may only use the Sites, Online Services and their contents for lawful purposes and in accordance with applicable law. You are prohibited from storing, distributing or transmitting any unlawful material through the Sites and Online Services. You may not collect or store personal information regarding other users. You recognize that storing, distributing or transmitting unlawful material could expose you to criminal and/or civil liability. You agree that if a third party claims that material you have contributed to the Sites or Online Services is unlawful, you will bear the burden of establishing that it is lawful. You understand and agree that all materials publicly posted or privately transmitted on or through the Sites and Online Services are the sole responsibility of the sender, not UPHE, and that you are responsible for all material you upload, publicly post or otherwise transmit on or through the Sites and Online Services.
UPHE makes no representation that Content on the Online Services is appropriate or available for use outside the United States, its territories, possessions, and protectorates. If you choose to access the Online Services from other locations, you do so on your own initiative and at your own risk.
You are responsible for complying with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You specifically agree to comply with all applicable laws concerning the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country where you reside.
Unless otherwise specified, the Content on the Online Services is presented solely to provide information regarding and to promote UPHE's services and other products available in the U.S. The Online Services are controlled and operated by UPHE from its offices within the State of New York. UPHE makes no representation that Content on the Online Services is appropriate or available for use outside the U.S. Those who choose to access the Online Services from outside the U.S. do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent that local laws are applicable.

By using the Online Services, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.
This Section 28 is deemed to be a "written agreement to arbitrate" pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and UPHE agree that we intend that this Section 28 satisfies the "writing" requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 28 can only be amended by mutual agreement. For non-U.S. residents, if binding arbitration is adjudged by a tribunal to be unenforceable, the provisions of Section 29 shall apply to all relevant disputes between you and us.
(a) Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and UPHE (the "Arbitrator");
(c) Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and UPHE; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than US$10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
(d) Governing Law. The Arbitrator (i) shall apply the internal laws of the State of California consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with New York or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
(e) No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or UPHE 's individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
(f) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator's complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an "Award"). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
(g) Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, UPHE will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith;
(h) Reasonable Attorney's Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than UPHE 's last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award UPHE 's reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys' fees associated with the Arbitration, but UPHE shall in all events bear its own attorneys' fees; and
(i) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor UPHE shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
(j) Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. UPHE may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after UPHE has given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from UPHE Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification.
(k) Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim you have against UPHE in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court's jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
(l) Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 28 will not apply to any legal action taken by UPHE to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Online Services, any Content, your User Content and/or UPHE's intellectual property rights (including such rights that UPHE may claim may be in dispute), UPHE's operations, and/or UPHE's products or services.
This Section 29 applies to non-US Residents, where applicable law prohibits arbitration of disputes in accordance with Section 28.
