    • Additional Terms - Your use of the Service is subject to any and all additional terms, policies, rules, or guidelines applicable to the Service or certain features of the Service that PhotoSpring may post on or link to on the Service (the “Additional Terms”), such as end-user license agreements for any downloadable applications that PhotoSpring may offer, or rules applicable to particular features or content on the Service, subject to Section 11 below.

The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, data, computer code (including source code or object code), products, software, services, and all other elements of the Service (the “Materials”) provided by PhotoSpring are protected by all relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights and applicable laws. All Materials contained in the Service are the property of PhotoSpring Inc or its third-party licensors. Except as expressly authorized by PhotoSpring, you may not make use of the Materials. PhotoSpring Inc reserves all rights to the Materials not granted expressly in these Terms.
  13. Indemnity - You agree that you will be responsible for your use of the Service, and you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless PhotoSpring and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents (collectively, the “PhotoSpring Inc Entities”) from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to, use of, or alleged use of the Service; (ii) your violation of these Terms or any representation, warranty, or agreements referenced herein, or any applicable law or regulation; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; or (iv) any disputes or issues between you and any third party.

  14. Disclaimers; no warranties - The service and all materials and content available through the service are provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis, without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied. Photospring disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, relating to the service and all materials and content available through the service, including but not limited to (i) any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, quiet enjoyment, or non-infringement; and (ii) any warranties arising out of course of dealing, usage, or trade. The photospring entities do not warrant that the service or any part thereof, or any materials or content offered through the service, will be uninterrupted, secure, or free of errors, viruses, or other harmful components, and do not warrant that any of the foregoing will be corrected.
No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from the service or any materials or content available on or through the service will create any warranty regarding any of the photospring entities or the service that is not expressly stated in these terms. You assume all risk for all damages that may result from your use of or access to the service, your dealings with other service users, and any materials or content available through the service. You understand and agree that you use the service and use, access, download, or otherwise obtain materials or content through the service and any associated sites or services at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your property (including your computer system used in connection with the service) or loss of content or data that results from the use of the service or the download or use of such materials or content.
Some jurisdictions may prohibit a disclaimer of warranties and you may have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
  15. Limitation of Liability - In no event will the photospring entities be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, content or other intangible losses) arising out of or relating to your access to or use of, or your inability to access or use, the service or any materials or content on the service, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), statute or any other legal theory, whether or not the photospring entities have been informed of the possibility of such damage.
You agree that the aggregate liability of the photospring entities to you for any and all claims arising out of relating to the use of or any inability to use the service (including any materials or content available through the service) or otherwise under these terms, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, is limited to the greater of (i) the amounts you have paid to photospring for access to and use of the service in the 12 months prior to the claim or (ii) $100.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. Accordingly, the above limitation may not apply to you.
Each provision of these terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is to allocate the risks under these terms between the parties. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these terms. The limitations in this section 15 will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.
  16. Governing Law - These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and PhotoSpring agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
  17. General - These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference herein, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and PhotoSpring regarding your use of and access to the Service, and except as expressly permitted above may be amended only by a written agreement signed by authorized representatives of all parties to these Terms. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights hereunder, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without PhotoSpring’s prior written consent. PhotoSpring may assign these Terms at any time without notice. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect PhotoSpring’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms or any provision of these Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and shall not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions. In the event that any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Upon termination of these Terms, any provision that by its nature or express terms should survive will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 2, 4, and 5 through 19.
  18. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
    • Generally - In the interest of resolving disputes between you and PhotoSpring in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and PhotoSpring agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with these Terms shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. The parties’ agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that, by entering into these terms, you and photospring are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
    • Exceptions - Notwithstanding subsection 18.1, both parties agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of the parties’ right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
    • Arbitrator - Any arbitration between you and PhotoSpring will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting PhotoSpring.
    • Notice & Process - A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that PhotoSpring does not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”). PhotoSpring’s address for Notice is: PhotoSpring Inc, 3111 Via Mondo, Compton CA 90221 USA. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). PhotoSpring agrees to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if PhotoSpring does not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or PhotoSpring may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or PhotoSpring shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. In the event the parties’ dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, PhotoSpring shall pay you (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by PhotoSpring in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $1,000.00, whichever is greater.
    • Fees - In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, PhotoSpring will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Los Angeles County, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse PhotoSpring for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
    • No Class Actions - You and photospring agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and photospring agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
    • Modifications - In the event that PhotoSpring makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to PhotoSpring’s address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to PhotoSpring’s address for Notice, in which case your account with PhotoSpring shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject shall survive.
    • Enforceability - If Subsection 18.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 18 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 18 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 16 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
  19. Feedback - PhotoSpring welcomes your comments about our Service. However, if you send us a business idea or suggestion (for example, about how to improve or expand PhotoSpring’s products and services), you agree that PhotoSpring will be completely free to implement, use, or modify, in any way, your idea or suggestion (or any part of it), without any payment or other obligation to you.
  20. Consent to Electronic Communications - By using the Service, you consent to receiving certain electronic communications from us as further described in the PhotoSpring Privacy Policy. Please read the PhotoSpring Privacy Policy to learn more about your choices regarding PhotoSpring’s electronic communications practices. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that PhotoSpring sends to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing.
