The Device and Services may be used together or in ways that may integrate with products and services from third parties. The term “Services” means the Sites, Web Apps, Mobile Apps, Subscription Services, and Embedded Software. The term “Products” means the Services and the Device.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Products. Please read these Terms carefully. They require the use of binding arbitration to resolve disputes rather than jury trials or class actions. The term “you,” as used in these Terms, means any person or entity who accesses or uses the Products and any person or entity who creates an Account (as defined below) and accepts these Terms. These Terms give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights in addition, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under these Terms will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other rights, so those provisions of these Terms may not apply to you.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT. BY ACKNOWLEDGING THESE TERMS OR BY ACCESSING OR USING THE PRODUCTS IN ANY WAY, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT (1) YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS, (2) THAT YOU EITHER HAVE EXCLUSIVE CONTROL OR EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION OVER THE PROPERTY ON WHICH THE WEB APPS OR MOBILE APPS ARE BEING INSTALLED, (3) THAT YOU ARE OF SUFFICIENT LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION OR RESIDENCE TO USE OR ACCESS THE PRODUCTS AND TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS. KOYA IS WILLING TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU ONLY UPON CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD CEASE ACCESSING OR USING THE PRODUCTS.
THE PRODUCTS ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE, AND WHILE THE PRODUCTS PROVIDE INFORMATION, WE CANNOT AND DO NOT DIAGNOSE YOUR HEALTH CONDITIONS. ALWAYS CONSULT A PHYSICIAN OR OTHER HEALTHCARE PROVIDER FOR PERSONAL MEDICAL ATTENTION AND ADVICE; DON’T USE THE PRODUCTS AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR CONSULTING WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. USE OF THE PRODUCTS IS NOT FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO AUTOMATIC SOFTWARE UPDATES OF THE SERVICES AND OF THE DEVICE CONNECTED TO THE SERVICES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE DEVICE OR THE SERVICES.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, SECTIONS 4, 5 and DESCRIBE IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS OF THE PRODUCTS. PLEASE READ THESE LIMITATIONS CAREFULLY, AS YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THEM AND ACCEPTING THEM.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SECTION 11 OF THESE TERMS, BELOW, CONTAINS PROVISIONS GOVERNING HOW CLAIMS THAT YOU AND WE HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY CLAIMS THAT AROSE OR WERE ASSERTED PRIOR TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS AGREEMENT. IN PARTICULAR, IT CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WHICH WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, REQUIRE DISPUTES BETWEEN US TO BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT: (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING; AND (2) YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS.
ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE WILL BE GOVERNED AND INTERPRETED BY AND UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY PRINCIPLES THAT PROVIDE FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE LAW OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION. THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS IS EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED FROM THIS AGREEMENT.
Koya reserves the right to make changes to these Terms. We'll post notice of modifications to these Terms on this page and update the “Last Updated” date above. You should ensure that you have read and agree with our most recent Terms when you use the Products. Continued use of the Products following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgment of such changes and agreement to be bound by the revised Terms. If you have any questions regarding these Terms, you can contact Koya by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

You represent and warrant to us that you have the legal right to post such User Submissions and that doing so will not violate any law or infringe upon or violate the rights of any person or entity.
You understand that all information posted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from which (or from whose Account) such content originated and that Koya will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any content; and that Koya cannot guarantee the identity of any other users with whom you may interact in the course of using the Services.

4. Agreed Usage and Limitations of Koya Services
(a) Intended Use of Services. The Services are intended to be accessed and used for non-time-critical information in connection with your use of a Device. While we aim for the Services to be highly reliable and available, they are not intended to be reliable or available 100% of the time. The Services are subject to sporadic interruptions and failures for a variety of reasons beyond Koya’s control, including Wi-Fi intermittency, service provider uptime, mobile notifications and carriers, among others. You acknowledge these limitations and agree that Koya is not responsible for any damages allegedly caused by the failure or delay of the Services.
(b) Use the Services At Your Own Risk. Our goal is to provide helpful and accurate information in connection with the Products, but we make no endorsement, representation, warranty, or covenant of any kind about any information, services, or recommendations made in connection with the Products (“Product Information”), or that your use of the Products will result in a decreased level of pain. The Product Information is provided “as-is” and “as available.” You agree that it is your responsibility to educate yourself about how to interpret and respond to the Product Information. The accuracy of the data collected and presented through the Products is not intended to match that of medical devices or scientific measurement devices. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Koya is not responsible or liable for the accuracy, reliability, effectiveness, or correct use of Product Information. If you rely on any Product Information, you do so solely at your own risk.
(c) Consult Your Doctor. The Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you have a medical condition, consult your doctor before using the Products. If you experience a medical emergency, stop using the Products and Product Information, and consult with a medical professional. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Koya is not responsible for any health problems that may result from your use of the Products. Any use of the Products is solely at your own risk. Prolonged contact with the Device may contribute to skin irritation or allergies in some users. To reduce irritation, follow four simple wear and care tips: (1) keep it clean; (2) keep it dry; and (3) don’t wear it too long. For more information, refer to the User Manual that came with the Device. If you notice any skin irritation, remove the Device. If symptoms persist longer than 2-3 days after removing the device, consult your doctor.

You acknowledge that the Products may not work as described when the requirements and compatibility have not been met. In addition, you acknowledge that Koya may activate communication protocols on your smartphone or tablet, with or without prior notification, in order to facilitate proper operation of the Products, enable communication with Products, and enable certain features.
(f) Your Warranties.

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the use and availability of the Products may be dependent on third party product vendors and service providers, (ii) these third party products and services may not operate in a reliable manner 100% of the time, and they may impact the way that the Products operate, and (iii) Koya is not responsible for damages and losses due to the operation of these third party products and services.

YOU AGREE NOT TO RELY ON THE PRODUCTS FOR ANY LIFE SAFETY OR TIME-CRITICAL PURPOSES.
(e) App Stores. You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Mobile Apps is dependent on the third party websites from which you download the Mobile Apps, e.g., the App Store from Apple or the Android app market from Google (each an “App Store”). You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and Koya and not with an App Store and that Koya, and not the App Store, is solely responsible for the Mobile Apps and content thereof. Each App Store may have its own terms and conditions to which you must agree before downloading Mobile Apps from it. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Mobile Apps is conditioned upon your compliance with, such App Store terms and conditions. To the extent such other terms and conditions from such App Store are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of these Terms, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in these Terms apply. Koya is responsible for providing any maintenance and support services with respect to the Mobile Apps and the App Store has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Mobile Apps. Koya is solely responsible for any product warranties, whether express or implied by law, to the extent not effectively disclaimed. In the event of any failure of the Mobile Apps to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the App Store, and the App Store may refund the purchase price for the Mobile Apps to you; and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the App Stores will not have any other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Mobile Apps, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be Koya's sole responsibility. You and Koya acknowledge that Koya, and not the App Store, is responsible for addressing any claims relating to the Mobile Apps or your possession and/or use of that Mobile Apps, including, but not limited to: (1) product liability claims; (2) any claim that the Mobile Apps fail to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (3) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. You and Koya acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the Mobile Apps infringe or your possession and use of the Mobile Apps infringe that third party's intellectual property rights, Koya, and not the App Store, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim. 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 agree to comply with, and your license to use the Mobile Apps is conditioned upon your compliance with, all applicable third party terms of agreement (e.g., the App Store's terms and policies and the Usage Rules) when using the Mobile Apps. Koya and you acknowledge and agree that the App Stores and their subsidiaries, are third party Koya of these Terms, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, the App Stores will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
(f) Third Party Website Links and Referrals. The Services may contain links to other web sites operated by third parties (“Third Party Sites”) and referrals to third party vendors (“Referred Vendors”). Such Third Party Sites and Referred Vendors are not under our control. Koya provides these links and referrals only as a convenience and does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to such Third Party Sites or Referred Vendors. Your use of these Third Party Sites and Referred Vendors is at your own risk.

Koya and its affiliates and licensors and suppliers reserve all rights not granted in these Terms. The Services are licensed to you, not sold, under these Terms.

Koya may use, copy, modify, publish, or redistribute the Ideas for any purpose and in any way without any compensation to you.

Furthermore, you understand that we retain the right to reformat, modify, create derivative works of, excerpt, and translate any such data.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Koya and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, licensors and suppliers (the “Koya Parties”) harmless from any damages, liabilities, claims or demands (including costs and attorneys’ fees) made by any third party due to or arising out of: (i) your use of the Products, (ii) your violation of these Terms, (iii) any User Submissions or Ideas you provide; or (iv) your violation of any law or the rights of any third party. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Koya Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Products. Koya reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify Koya and you agree to cooperate with our defense of such claims. You agree not to settle any such claim without Koya’s prior written consent. Koya will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.

(a) Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Products or to any aspect of your relationship with Koya, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Koya may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the effective date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH KOYA, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST KOYA ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST KOYA IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
(b) Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: firstname.lastname@example.org The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Koya will pay them for you. In addition, Koya will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Koya will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(c) Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Koya. The arbitration proceeding 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 arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). 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 us.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND KOYA HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Koya are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in subsection (a) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
(e) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 14(a).
(f) 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: email@example.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
(g) Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
(h) Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Koya.
(i) Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Koya makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to Koya.
