BY ACCESSING OR USING THE APP, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, you will not be allowed to access or use the App. If you access or use the App on behalf of a company, principal, or other entity, you represent that you have authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to this Agreement and that it is fully binding on them.

- Use of the App
Before using the App, you will need to provide a username and password to create an account. We reserve the right to decline to provide the App to any person for any or no reason. If and when you register, you agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information as prompted (including your e-mail address). You acknowledge that, if any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement and your use of the App. By providing the Company with your e-mail address or other contact information, you consent to our use of this information to send you marketing and sales materials or notices related to our products and services, including any notices required by law.
Also, when you register and upload your model data, you could be added to the App “leader board,” so your username or ID could be shown publicly.
You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account. You must keep your account credentials (including username and password) secure at all times. You may not share your account with any third parties without the Company’s prior written consent unless such third party has separately entered an agreement with the Company permitting it to access your account. You must notify the Company immediately of any breach or suspected breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. The Company will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.

- Jurisdictional Issues
The Company makes no representation that the App operates (or is legally permitted to operate) in all geographic areas, or that the App is appropriate or available for use in other locations.

The App is operated from the United States. If you are located outside of the United States and choose to use the App or provide your User Content to us, your User Content will be transferred, processed, and stored in the United States.

If you do not want your User Content transferred to or processed or stored in the United States, you should not use the App.
- Choice of Law and Forum
This Agreement and your relationship with the Company Parties shall be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws principles AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE. The parties irrevocably consent to bring any action to enforce this Agreement in the federal or state courts located in Santa Clara County, California and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Santa Clara County, California.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the remaining provisions will nevertheless remain in full force and effect, and such provision will be reformed in a manner to effectuate the original intent of the parties as closely as possible and remain enforceable. If such reformation is not possible in a manner that is enforceable, then such term will be severed from the remaining terms, and the remaining terms will remain in effect. This is the entire Agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between you and us with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement may not be changed, waived, or modified except by a written instrument signed by the Company. If any employee of the Company offers to modify this Agreement, he or she is not acting as an agent for the Company or speaking on the Company’s behalf. You may not rely, and should not act in reliance on, any statement or communication from an employee of the Company or anyone else purporting to act on the Company’s behalf. This Agreement is between you and the Company; there are no third-party beneficiaries. You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, United States export and import regulations. You may not use the App if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Neither this Agreement nor any right, obligation, or remedy hereunder is assignable, transferable, delegable, or sublicensable by you except with the Company’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, transfer, delegation, or sublicense shall be null and void. The Company may assign, transfer, or delegate this Agreement or any right or obligation or remedy hereunder in its sole discretion.
