Content You Submit
Passwords and Payments
Passwords and Account Access. Every Account has one designated Adult User who must be at least 18 years of age. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account information. You agree (a) that you will provide complete and accurate registration information about yourself and any individual you authorize to access your Account and keep your Account information up-to-date, (b) that you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, (c) to notify us immediately of any unauthorized Account use, (d) that we are in no way responsible for any loss that you may incur as a result of any unauthorized use of your Account and password, and (e) that you will not sell, transfer, or assign your Account or any Account rights. If we learn that an ineligible user has created an Account, we may seek confirmation of the user’s status or deactivate the Account.
Account Fees. For certain types of Accounts, we may charge a fee, such as an Account fee or subscription fee. For existing subscribers, we may change your fee at the end of your subscription period. All fees are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Services for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial subscription, your rights to use the Services are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew according to the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable Additional Terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for new subscribers.
Subscription Renewal. By activating an Account, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the day after your previous subscription ends, and you authorize us to charge you for the subscription term, unless you cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the procedures described in the “Subscription Cancellation” section below. We will charge your credit card each year, month, or other applicable period for the applicable price.
Subscription Cancellation. Unless you purchased your subscription through Apple’s iTunes App Store, to cancel your subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the My Account section or by contacting us. If you do so, please know that we endeavor to have customer requests handled within 24 hours; however, we cannot guarantee that your cancellation will be registered within that time period. We will honor all cancellations received before the renewal date, outside of iTunes App Store subscriptions. If you downloaded our app through Apple’s iTunes App Store, you must follow the cancellation instructions provided in the iTunes App Store. For all Accounts, you will continue to have access to your Account for the period that has already been prepaid. If you activated a paid Account at a discounted or promotional rate, chose to pay in installments, and then canceled that Account prior to all the installments having been paid, the period of time after the cancellation that your Account will continue to be accessible will be calculated based on the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at the time of cancellation. After you cancel your Account, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription. Please note we do not provide full or partial refunds for prepaid sums. In any event, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid.

Access, Change, or Delete Personal Information
Users can review account information via the “My Account” page on the Service. You may change your password. If you would like to change any other account information, or would like to delete your account, please contact us at [email protected] Please remember that if we delete your account, you will lose access to all content associated with your account. We may still store user personal information in our records if our retention policies require it, we need to retain information for internal business purposes, or deletion is technically infeasible.
We believe that any disputes we may have can be resolved between us. However, if we cannot resolve a dispute amicably, both parties agree to have the dispute resolved by final and binding arbitration. Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted by one arbitrator. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules, as modified by this Agreement and by the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes, if applicable. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Company.
Please note: You are waiving your right to sue Appy Therapy in court. The dispute will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator and not by a judge or a jury. The arbitration process is simpler than a court proceeding. An award in arbitration is as enforceable as a court order and is subject to very limited review.
You and Appy Therapy agree that each 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, unless both we both 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. If these arbitration provisions are deemed unenforceable, then the entirety of this section shall be null and void and the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Rockville, Maryland shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms. If the class proceeding waiver is deemed unenforceable, then the arbitration provisions as whole shall be deemed unenforceable.
Termination and Suspension. We reserve the right to discontinue the Services or suspend or terminate your access to it, including any Accounts, Downloads and Content, at any time, without notice, for any reason and without any obligation to you or any third party. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are in violation of these Terms, then we may suspend or terminate your Account or deny you access to all or part of the Services. Any suspension or termination will not affect your obligations to us, including any payment obligations to us, and you will not be entitled to a refund of any payments. Upon suspension or termination of your access to the Services, or upon notice from us, your License to use the Services will terminate immediately.

Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms without such consent will be null and of no effect.

Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
