By accepting this TOS or by accessing or using the Services or our website located at UnchainedLogistics.co (the “Site”), you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this TOS. If you are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company, business or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to this TOS, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this TOS, you must not accept this TOS and may not use the Service.
1.2. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of this TOS at any time. If we do this, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We will also notify you, either through the Service user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means. Any such changes will become effective no earlier than fourteen (14) days after they are posted, except that changes addressing new functions of the Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Service after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new TOS.

You shall also be responsible for maintaining the security of the Equipment, your Account, passwords (including but not limited to administrative and user passwords) and files, and for all uses of your Account or the Equipment with or without your knowledge or consent.
3.7. The failure of Unchained Logistics to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this TOS shall not be a waiver of that right. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between you and Unchained Logistics, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and Unchained Logistics, and it governs your use of the Service and takes the place of any prior agreements between you and Unchained Logistics.

In addition to any other remedies we may have, Unchained Logistics may also terminate this TOS upon thirty (30) days’ notice (or ten (10) days in the case of nonpayment), if you breach any of the terms or conditions of this TOS. Also, Unchained Logistics may terminate this TOS immediately without notice if you violate any provision of the AUP, as determined in Unchained Logistics’s sole reasonable discretion. Unchained Logistics reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof). Except as provided above, upon any termination of your account, Unchained Logistics may store all of Your Content on the Service (if any), or it may be permanently deleted by Unchained Logistics, in its sole discretion. If Unchained Logistics terminates your account without cause and you have signed up for a fee-bearing service, Unchained Logistics will refund the pro-rated, unearned portion of any amount that you have prepaid to Unchained Logistics for such Service. However, all accrued rights to payment and the terms of Sections 4-22 shall survive termination of this TOS.
7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.
The Services may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, either by Unchained Logistics or by third-party providers, or because of other causes beyond our reasonable control, but Unchained Logistics shall use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice on the Site or by email of any scheduled service disruption. HOWEVER, THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE SITE, SOFTWARE AND CONTENT, AND ANY SERVER AND NETWORK COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND Unchained Logistics EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT Unchained Logistics DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE OR SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE, NOR DOES IT MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM USE OF THE SERVICES OR SOFTWARE, AND NO INFORMATION, ADVICE OR SERVICES OBTAINED BY YOU FROM Unchained Logistics OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TOS.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
8.1. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 14, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL Unchained Logistics BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA, OR (B) ANY DIRECT DAMAGES, COSTS, LOSSES OR LIABILITIES IN EXCESS OF THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU IN THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO YOUR CLAIM, OR, IF NO FEES APPLY, ONE HUNDRED ($100) U.S. DOLLARS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS TOS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS TOS.
8.2. Some states do not allow the DISCLAIMER OR exclusion of CERTAIN warranties or the EXCLUSION OR limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations and DISCLAIMERS may not apply OR BE ENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT to you, and IN SUCH CASE, Unchained Logistics’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY SUCH APPLICABLE LAW. IF YOU ARE A USER FROM NEW JERSEY, THE FOREGOING SECTIONS 11 and 12 are INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AS IS PERMITTED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY. IF ANY PORTION OF Sections 11 or 12 IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION SHALL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF Sections 11 and 12..
You shall release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Unchained Logistics and its directors, officers, employees, agents, licensors, affiliates, successors and assigns (each, an “Indemnitee”) from and against any claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from your breach of this TOS (including but not limited to your representations and warranties in Section 5.2), any of Your Content, or your other access, contribution to, use or misuse of the Service. Unchained Logistics shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit or demand. Unchained Logistics reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting Unchained Logistics’s defense of such matter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will have no obligation to indemnify or hold harmless any Indemnitee from or against any liability, losses, damages or expenses incurred as a result of any action or inaction of such Indemnitee. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
At Unchained Logistics’s or your election, all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the TOS or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration to be conducted before JAMS, or its successor. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in San Francisco, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS, and will be conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by JAMS unless specifically modified in the TOS. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the TOS and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under the TOS, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND COMPANY 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 Company agree otherwise in writing, 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. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing party) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the introductory section above, if Unchained Logistics changes this ‘Arbitration’ section after the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS ), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Date of Last Revision” date above or in the date of Unchained Logistics’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Unchained Logistics in accordance with the provisions of this section as of the date you first accepted this TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to this TOS).
11. U.S. Government Matters.
You may not remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of the Services or anything related thereto, or any direct product thereof in violation of any restrictions, laws or regulations of the United States Department of Commerce, the United States Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, or any other United States or foreign agency or authority. As defined in FAR section 2.101, the software and documentation installed by Unchained Logistics on your Equipment (if applicable) are “commercial items” and according to DFAR section 252.227 7014(a)(1) and (5) are deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation.” Consistent with DFAR section 227.7202 and FAR section 12.212, any use modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or disclosure of such commercial software or commercial software documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by the terms of this TOS and will be prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms of this TOS.
You may not assign this TOS without the prior written consent of Unchained Logistics, in which case, Unchained Logistics may charge a transfer fee. Unchained Logistics may assign or transfer this TOS, in whole or in part, without restriction.
If any provision of this TOS is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this TOS will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Both parties agree that this TOS is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this TOS, and that all waivers and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this TOS and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Unchained Logistics in any respect whatsoever. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this TOS, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. All notices under this TOS will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or email; the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service; and upon receipt, if sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. These terms may change from time to time in accordance with Section 1.2, and when you agree to use the Services, you consent to the then-applicable TOS.
14. Governing Law.
This TOS shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to the principles of conflicts of law. Unless otherwise elected by Unchained Logistics in a particular instance, you hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within San Francisco, California for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to your access to or use of the Service.
