Last Updated: June 25, 2021
YUR, Inc. (together with our affiliates, “YUR”, “we”, “our” or “us”) offers a personalized and social fitness platform and related products, services, content, and features through websites owned and operated by YUR, including without limitation www.yur.fit, www.yur.energy and www.yur.world (collectively, the “YUR Sites”) and through mobile, desktop, virtual or augmented reality headset, or other device applications, including iOS and Android applications (each, an “App,” and collectively the “Apps”) and any YUR-controlled social media pages (including on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). To make these Terms easier to read, the YUR Sites and Apps, together with the YUR-controlled social media pages, are collectively called the “YUR Service” or “the Services”. By downloading, visiting, browsing, or using the YUR Service in any way, users (“user,” “you” or “your”) accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service (“Terms”), which form a binding agreement between you and YUR.
THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. Please read these Terms in their entirety. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, you may not access or use the YUR Service. Additional or different terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) may apply in connection with certain features of the YUR Service and will be provided or made available to you through the YUR Service or upon request. These Additional Terms are incorporated into and made a part of these Terms by reference.
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately on the date that they are posted to the YUR Sites and/or otherwise made available through the YUR Service, and apply to all access to and use of the YUR Service thereafter. Your continued use of the YUR Service following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then you may not use the YUR Service and you may cancel your subscription as described in these Terms. Because we are always evolving the YUR Service we may change or discontinue all or any part of the YUR Service, at any time and without notice to you, in our sole discretion.

In the event of account deletion for any reason, User Content may no longer be available and YUR is not responsible for the deletion or loss of such User Content.

You represent that all User Content submitted by or on behalf of you is accurate, complete, up-to-date, and in compliance with these Terms and with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. You acknowledge that all Content, including User Content, accessed by you using the YUR Service is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss to you or any other party resulting therefrom. To the full extent permitted by law, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees with respect to any Content that you access on or through the YUR Service.
As between you and YUR, you represent that you own (or have all rights necessary to grant YUR the rights below to) all User Content that you submit to the YUR Service, and that YUR will not need to obtain licenses from any third party or pay royalties to any third party in order to use such User Content. You grant YUR a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable (through multiple tiers), transferable, royalty-free license and right to use, copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform and display (through all media now known or later created), edit, modify, and make derivative works from your User Content (including, without limitation, translations) for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you.

Apple has no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App.
In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the App to you (if applicable) and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App. Any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of YUR.

Apple and its subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and upon your acceptance of the Terms, Apple 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.

COPYRIGHT / DMCA POLICY
YUR respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Each user is responsible for ensuring that their User Content does not infringe any third-party copyright or other intellectual property rights.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If properly notified as described below that any materials published on or through the YUR Service infringe a third party’s copyright, YUR will investigate such allegation and take action in accordance with the DMCA or equivalent laws which are applicable in other jurisdictions. We will take whatever action we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion, including removal of the infringing Content, contacting the relevant user, and/or terminating any user that is determined by us to be a repeat infringer. This process does not limit our ability to pursue any other remedies we may have to address suspected infringement.
If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with a written notice containing the following information: Your name, address, telephone number, and email address; A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; A description of where on the YUR Site(s) the material that you claim is infringing may be found, sufficient for YUR to locate the material (e.g., the URL);
A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; A statement by you UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf; and Your electronic or physical signature.
If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to YUR a counter-notice. You may submit notices of alleged infringement, or any counter-notice, via email, with the subject line “Copyright Notices” to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via mail to the address below.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – APPLICABLE TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW
Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in San Francisco, California, United States of America, before one arbitrator. If the dispute, claim or controversy exceeds $250,000, the arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”), and if not, the arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to the Rules and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures or similar process set forth in the Rules. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
Attorney’s Fees. In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator determines a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AND YUR AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, United States of America, without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act, and the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods shall not apply.
Exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes that are not required to be arbitrated will be the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California, United States of America, and you consent to the jurisdiction of those courts.
INTERPRETATION; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; REMEDIES
Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe these Terms. If any portion of these Terms is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that portion will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and otherwise severed from these Terms. No failure or delay by YUR in exercising any right hereunder will waive any further exercise of that right. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of YUR. YUR’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive.
SUCCESSORS; ASSIGNMENT; NO THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARIES
These Terms are binding upon and will inure to the benefit of both parties and their respective successors, heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and permitted assigns.

These Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties to these Terms and their respective successors and permitted assigns. We and you are not partners, joint venturers, agents, employees or representatives of the other party.
Neither you nor YUR shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance under these Terms (other than for delay in the payment of money due and payable in accordance with these Terms) for causes beyond the party’s reasonable control and not caused by that party’s fault, or negligence, including, but not limited to, “acts of God”, acts of government, flood, fire, civil unrest, acts of terror, pandemics and epidemics, strikes or other labor problems, computer attacks or malicious acts, such as attacks on or through the internet, any internet service provider, telecommunications or hosting facility.
