All rights not expressly granted with respect to the Services and Content are hereby reserved. Apptopia may modify (or cease providing) the Services or Content at any time in Apptopia’s sole discretion.
Content owned by third parties (including, without limitation, logos or trademarks) shall not be used by you for any purpose. Our trademarks and service marks may not be used by you without our consent. All other trademarks and service marks not own by us are the property of their respective owners. Notwithstanding the foregoing, by using the Services as a paying/subscribing User, you authorize Apptopia to potentially list your company, your User Content, or your intellectual property (including but not limited to your logos or trademarks) for promotional purposes.

You agree not to copy, reproduce, sell, transfer, modify, publish, distribute, display, prepare derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile or exploit any portion of the Services, Apptopia Content, or code without prior written consent from us or, upon our direction, from the respective owner of said material.
We take the intellectual property rights of our Users seriously and have procedures regarding allegations of copyright infringement occurring on the Site or with the Services. As required under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), we have adopted a policy that provides for the immediate suspension and/or termination of any User who is found to have infringed our rights or the rights of a third party, or otherwise violated any intellectual laws or regulations. Our policy is to act expeditiously upon receipt of proper notification of claimed copyright infringement to remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing content. If you have evidence, know, or have a good faith belief that your rights or the rights of a third party have been violated and you want Apptopia to delete, edit, or disable the material in question, you must provide us with the following information in writing: (1) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (2) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (3) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material; (4) Information reasonably sufficient to permit Apptopia to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, email address; (5) A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (6) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. The above written information must be sent to our registered Copyright Agent: Copyright Agent c/o Apptopia, Inc., 132 Lincoln St, 3rd Floor, Boston, MA 02111. You may also email this information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to us: (1) Your physical or electronic signature; (2) Identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (3) A statement that you have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the User Content; and (4) Your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If Apptopia receives a counter-notice, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Apptopia’s sole discretion.
Third Party Services
The Services may provide, or Users may provide, links to sites or resources that are not own or controlled by Apptopia ("Third Party Material"). Because we have no control over such Third Party Material, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the availability of such Third Party Material, and do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for any Third Party Material, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such Third Party Material. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such Third Party Material, goods or services available on or through any such Third Party Material. ACCESS AND USE OF THIRD PARTY MATERIALS, INCLUDING THE INFORMATION, MATERIALS AND SERVICES ON OR AVAILABLE THROUGH THIRD PARTY MATERIALS IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
By connecting any third party accounts, including but not limited to developer accounts on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon App Store, ad network accounts, and others that the Site may allow you to connect, you allow us to receive any and all data that you receive through such third party accounts. It is hereby clarified that in case you remove this connection to any such third party accounts, we will be able to use all such data that you received through that account prior to its removal. If you don’t agree, do not connect such third party accounts.
You agree to indemnify and to hold harmless Apptopia from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, due to or arising out of your violation of these Terms.

Disclaimers and Limitation of Liabilty
THE SITES, SERVICES, CONTENT, AND ANY THIRD-PARTY SITES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. APPTOPIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA OR USE, INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT, ARISING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO, OR USE OF, THE SERVICES, ANY CONTENT, OR ANY THIRD-PARTY SITES AND CONTENT. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, APPTOPIA’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. IN NO EVENT SHALL APPTOPIA’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY UNDER THESE TERMS EXCEED THE GREATER OF THE AMOUNT PAID TO APPTOPIA BY A USER FOR THE USE OF THE SERVICES.
Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and all matters arising out of these Terms shall be construed and enforced exclusively in accordance with Delaware law without regard to choice of law provisions. 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 Suffolk County, Massachusetts, before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the award, including the hearing, unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Apptopia shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Apptopia’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation. If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that portion shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with our prior written consent. Apptopia may transfer, assign or delegate these Terms and its rights and obligations without consent. These Terms are the entire statement of the terms that govern your use of the Services.
APPTOPIA MAY MAKE CHANGES TO THESE TERMS FROM TIME TO TIME IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AFTER APPTOPIA POSTS OR OTHERWISE MAKES AVAILABLE MODIFIED TERMS WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THOSE MODIFIED TERMS.
