ALL CONTENT, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” OR “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND VINLI EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND SATISFACTORY QUALITY. VINLI MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE CONTENT IS ACCURATE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED, VIRUS-FREE OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ANY SUCH PROBLEMS WILL BE CORRECTED.

10. Limitation of Liability.

  • a. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT VINLI WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, EVEN IF VINLI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITIES OF THOSE DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, SERVICES OR CONTENT, THE COST OF OBTAINING SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY LOSS OF DATA, INFORMATION, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES OBTAINED FROM PURCHASES OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH THE WEBSITE, OR STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY, OR ANY OTHER MATTER RELATED TO THE WEBSITE, SERVICES OR CONTENT.

11. Electronic Communications. When you visit the Website or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on the Website. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You further agree that any notices provided by us electronically are deemed to be given and received on the date we transmit any such electronic communication as described in these Terms of Use.

12. Dispute Resolution and Governing Law.

  • a. Customer Service and FAQs. At Vinli, we expect that our customer service team will be able to quickly and satisfactorily resolve most concerns you may have regarding Vinli, its products, services, or the Website by contacting Vinli customer service at support@vin.li or by reviewing the FAQ page on the Website at https://vinli.zendesk.com/hc/en-us. In the unlikely event that an issue, concern or claim (including legal claims) remains unresolved, you and Vinli each agree to discuss any issue informally for at least 30 days. You can do that by sending your full name and contact information, your concern and your requested solution to Vinli at Vinli, 2203 Commerce St., Dallas, Texas 75201 USA, Attention: Legal Department. If we would like to discuss an issue with you, we will email you at the email address you used when you registered for your Vinli account.
  • b. Agreement to Arbitrate. If we do not reach an agreed solution after the 30-day discussion period, you and Vinli each agree that any issue, concern or claim (including legal claims) that either of us may have arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use (including formation, performance, or breach of them), our relationship with each other, or use of the Website, must be resolved through final binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association using its Consumer Arbitration Rules, available here (the “AAA Rules”) or available by calling the American Arbitration Association at 1-800-778-7879. As an exception to this agreement to arbitrate, Vinli is happy to give you the right to pursue in small claims court any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction, so long as you proceed solely on an individual basis. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other party, by certified or registered mail, a written notice of dispute. You may download or copy a form notice of dispute and a form to initiate arbitration from www.adr.org. Unless you and Vinli agree otherwise, the arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties as determined by the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules, and the hearings may be conducted in-person, by videoconference, phone or by the exchange of documents. The arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be enforced and entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator rules against Vinli, we think it’s fair that Vinli reimburse you for your reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration. However, if the arbitrator rules in Vinli’s favor, Vinli will not seek reimbursement of our attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration.
  • c. Time Limitation; No Class Actions. To help resolve any issues between us promptly and directly, you and Vinli agree to begin any arbitration under these Terms of Use within one year after the claim first arose; otherwise, the claim is waived. You and Vinli also agree to arbitrate in each of our individual capacities only – not as a representative or member of a class – and each of us expressly waives any right to file a class action or seek relief on a class action basis. Furthermore, unless you and Vinli agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative of class proceeding.
  • d. Confidentiality. All arbitration proceedings are confidential, unless both you and Vinli agree otherwise. Arbitration orders and awards required to be filed with applicable courts of competent jurisdiction are not confidential and may be disclosed by the parties to such courts. A party who improperly discloses confidential information shall be subject to sanctions. The arbitrator and forum may disclose case filings, case dispositions, and other case information as required by a court order of proper jurisdiction.
  • e. Governing Law. The Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law and as applied to agreements made, entered into and performed entirely in Texas by Texas residents, notwithstanding the actual residence of the parties. You and Vinli expressly disclaim the applicability of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). To the extent that the arbitration provisions outlined in this Section 12 are not applicable (for example, when confirming an arbitration award), you and Vinli agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Dallas County in the State of Texas, USA.

13. Password Accounts, Passwords, and Security. If you have been given the option to open an account on the Website that will provide you with access to password protected portions of the Website and you elect to do so, you must complete the registration process by providing us with current, complete and accurate information as prompted by the applicable registration form, and choose a password and user name. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account and for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Vinli of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security of which you become aware, and (b) exit completely from your account at the end of each online session. Vinli will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge. However, you could be held liable for losses incurred by Vinli or another party due to someone else using your account or password. You may not use anyone else’s account at any time, without the permission of the account holder.

14. How to Contact Us. If you have any questions about these Terms of Use or your interaction with our websites or developer portal, you can contact us by email at customerservice@vin.li or by mail at Vinli, 2203 Commerce St., Dallas, Texas 75201 USA, Attention: Customer Service.

15. Miscellaneous. Vinli may give you all notices (including legal process) that Vinli is required to give by any lawful method, including by posting notice on Website or by sending it to any email or mailing address that you provide to Vinli. You agree to check for notices posted on the Website. You agree that all notices to Vinli related to these Terms of Use will be provided by physical mail to the address below: Vinli, 2203 Commerce St., Dallas, Texas 75201 USA, Attention: Legal Department. Nothing in these Terms of Use is intended to construe the existence of a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between you and Vinli. Vinli shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations under these Terms of Use if prevented from doing so by a cause or causes beyond its control. You agree to comply with all applicable U.S. and other worldwide government and regulatory export laws and regulations. No delay or failure to take action under these Terms of Use will constitute a waiver unless expressly waived in writing, signed by a duly authorized representative of Vinli, and no single waiver will constitute a continuing or subsequent waiver. These Terms of Use will bind your successors but may not be assigned, in whole or part, by you without the written approval of an authorized representative of Vinli. Any nonconforming assignment shall be null and void. If any provision is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Use shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You agree that any violation, or threatened violation, by you of these Terms of Use constitutes an unlawful and unfair business practice that will cause us irreparable and unquantifiable harm. You also agree that monetary damages would be inadequate for such harm and consent to our obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that we deem necessary or appropriate. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity. These Terms of Use and other terms referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between you and Vinli with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding such subject matter. No addition to or removal or modification of any of the provisions of these Terms of Use will be binding upon Vinli unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Vinli.
