By (1) registering for an account, or (2) downloading or using the Software, or (3) otherwise accessing or using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least 16 years old and you have all necessary consents and authority to enter into these Terms, and you acknowledge and agree that you have read the Terms and you accept and agree to be bound and abide by the Terms. If you do not agree with the Terms, you must immediately cease all use of the Services and un-install any Software from your hardware.

1. General.

1.1. Business Users. If you received an “Entitlement” (which is defined as the right to use, access, and consume the Software and Services) from an organization or group, including but not limited to a business or any other commercial entity, government entity, non-profit organization, or educational institution (each, a “Business”), then (A) you are a “Business User” of such Business; (B) your Future Stage profile associated with such Entitlement is a “Business Profile”; and (C) all references to “you” in these Terms will mean such Business. If you are a Business User, you agree that, due to your receipt of Entitlements from such Business, (1) we may provide such Business with the ability to access, use, remove, retain, and control your Business Profile and all Content therein whether uploaded or imported before or after the date these Terms were last updated; (2) your use of the Services and Software is governed by such Business’s agreement with us; and (3) we may provide your personal information to such Business. If you are a Business User with Entitlements from multiple Businesses, you may have separate Business Profiles associated with each Business. As a Business User, you may have different agreements with or obligations to a Business, which may affect your Business Profile or your Content. We are not responsible for any violation by you of such agreements or obligations. If you did not receive Entitlements from a Business, then (a) you are a “Personal User”; (b) your Future Stage profile is a personal profile; (c) you maintain sole access and control over all Content in your personal account or personal profile (except as otherwise indicated in the Privacy Policy); and (d) all references to “you” in these General Terms will mean you as an individual. If you received Entitlements through a personal plan and from a Business, then you are both a Personal User and a Business User. You are a Personal User when you utilize the Entitlements you obtained through your personal plan, and you are a Business User when you utilize your Entitlements provided by a Business.

1.2.  Business Email Domains. As a Personal User or a Business User, you may create a Future Stage account using an email address provided or assigned to you by a Business (such as your work email address). If the Business establishes a direct relationship with us, they may want to add your account to such relationship. If this happens, the Business may roll your account into the Business’s account. This means the Business may (A) access the account; (B) take control over the account and any Content therein whether stored, uploaded, or imported before or after the date these Terms were last updated; and (C) recommend any non-Business Content associated with such account to be moved to a new account that utilizes an email address not associated with such Business. You, as an individual or a Business User, also acknowledge that we may provide your personal information to such Business, such as your name or email address. If you do not want a Business to access, use, remove, retain, or control an account or profile, then do not use a Business email address with that account.

1.3.  Updates to Terms. We may make changes to the Terms from time to time, and if we do, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the Terms and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice. You should look at the Terms regularly.

By granting these licenses, you waive any so-called “moral rights” that you may have.

Subject to Section 13.4 below, any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of the Terms to arbitrate shall be exclusively resolved via binding arbitration. JAMS will administer the arbitration in San Francisco County, California pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. There will be one arbitrator that you and EEP mutually select.

13.4. Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of your or others’ unauthorized access to or use of the Services or Software in violation of the Terms, you acknowledge that such activity above may result in material irreparable injury to the EEP for which there is no adequate remedy at law, that it will not be possible to measure precisely damages for such injuries and that, in the event of such a breach or threat thereof, we shall be entitled, without the requirement to post bond or other security, to obtain a temporary restraining order and/or injunction restraining you from engaging in activities prohibited by the Terms or such other relief as may be required to specifically enforce any of the covenants contained herein, and EEP may seek such relief in any court with competent jurisdiction.

13.5. Choice of Law. Unless preempted by U.S. federal law, the laws of the State of California, USA, will apply to all matters relating to the Terms and the Services without regard to the conflicts of laws principles nor the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.

Access to certain Services (or certain service features or Sample Files) in certain countries may be blocked by us or foreign governments. It is your responsibility to make sure your use of the Services is legal or available where you use them. Services are not available in all languages.

15.10. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation (other than your payment obligations to us) under the Terms if the delay or failure is due to unforeseen events, which occur after the effectiveness of the Terms and which are beyond the reasonable control of the parties, such as epidemic, strikes, blockade, war, terrorism, riots, natural disasters, refusal of license by the government or other governmental agencies, in so far as such an event prevents or delays the affected party from fulfilling its obligations and such party is not able to prevent or remove the force majeure at reasonable cost.
