In addition, Authorized Users can invite or enable other Authorized Users to access and use your account. Tomofun does not take any responsibility for the actions of Authorized Users.

You may choose to enable certain parts of our Services that allow you to store video and/or audio footage or photographs in cloud storage for up to 24 hours, download them to your mobile device, or to receive certain types of notifications, by registering for our Subscription Services. If you do not register for the Subscription Services, you will only be able to record for the limited purpose of giving you access to a real-time stream of the area where the Hardware Product is located; you will not be able to access any past recordings nor can you enable the Subscription Services retroactively. If you or an Authorized User delete any data collected as a result of the Subscription Services, the data will be deleted and no longer available to you. Tomofun may charge an additional fee for the use of some or all of the Subscription Services. In our sole discretion, we may modify, suspend, terminate, or change the Subscription Services at any time.
a. Subscription. You can find a description of our Subscription Services on our website, and we will explain which Subscription Service options are available to you when you sign up for the Furbo Dog Nanny or other services we offer. Your Subscription Services will continue month-to-month, annually or based on the other timescale subscription plan (the “Subscription Term) that you select, and will automatically renew until terminated. You will be entitled to access the Subscription Services you purchased for each Subscription Term until such subscription is cancelled. To change or discontinue a Purchase, please go to your account settings or contact us at least 24 hours before the next Subscription Term. To use the Furbo Dog Nanny you must provide us with one or more Payment Methods. "Payment Method" means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time and which may include payment through your account with a third party. You must cancel your Subscription Services before it renews to avoid billing of the next Subscription Term’s fees to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation" below).
b. Free Trial. Your purchase of a Furbo Hardware Product may include a trial period to use the Subscription Service at no cost (“Free Trial”). The Free Trial period of your Subscription Service lasts for three months, or as otherwise specified during sign-up and is intended to allow new subscribers to try our Subscription Service. We will not require you to provide your payment details to start the Free Trial.
Free Trial eligibility is determined by Tomofun at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent Free Trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the Free Trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. Members of households with an existing or recent Tomofun Subscription Services are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment or an account email address used with an existing or recent Tomofun Subscription Services to determine eligibility.
If you would like to continue to access the Subscription Service after your Free Trial ends, you must purchase a Subscription Service. If you do not purchase a Subscription Service, then your access to the Subscription Service will end.
c. Billing Cycle. The Subscription Services will be charged based on the Subscription Term you select to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of the paying portion of your Subscription until your Subscription is cancelled. For example, if you sign up for a monthly subscription on January 15, you will be charged again on February 15 for the next month of the Subscription Services.
d. Payment Methods. To use the Subscription Services you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You can update your Payment Methods by going to the "Account" page. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s). You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your Subscription Services. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the Subscription Services until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
e. Cancellation. To cancel, go to the "Account" page on our website or your account settings on your Mobile App and follow the instructions for cancellation. You can cancel your auto-renewal for your Subscription Services at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Subscription Services through the end of your Subscription Term. You must cancel your subscription-based Services at least 24 hours before the next Subscription Term to avoid further charges. Unless you cancel auto-renewal for your subscription, the Subscription Services will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the Subscription Term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial Subscription Term. If you cancel your Subscription Services, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period for your Subscription Term.
It is your responsibility to backup any data, software, or other materials you may have stored or preserved via your use of the Subscription Services. It is likely that such data, software, or other materials will be lost after your Subscription Services end. Tomofun will not be responsible for any such damage or loss.
Refunds. Payments for Subscription Services are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the Subscription Service through the end of your Subscription Term. You will not be eligible for a prorated refund of your payment for Subscription Services.
g. For Canadian residents only. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are a resident of Canada, you have 7 days from the date you signed up for a Subscription Service to cancel and receive a full refund. Please note that if you signed up for a Free Trial, then the 7-day period runs from the date that you signed up for the Free Trial.

26. Dispute Resolution and Waiver of Class Action and Jury Rights
You understand and agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising under or in connection with this Agreement, including your use and access to the Services or any other content, including, but not limited to, claims as to whether any services rendered by Tomofun or persons employed or engaged by Tomofun were unnecessary or unauthorized or were improperly, negligently, or incompetently rendered, shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s ("AAA") Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures and Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures, and not by a lawsuit or resort to court process, except as California law provides for judicial review of arbitration proceedings. Each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. It is your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees as set forth in the AAA Rules.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT BOTH PARTIES TO THIS AGREEMENT ARE GIVING UP THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO HAVE SUCH DISPUTE DECIDED IN A COURT OF LAW BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER PRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
The parties further agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this agreement to arbitrate. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, unless both parties otherwise agree in writing. The arbitration shall be held in San Francisco County, California, U.S.A.
You may cancel this agreement to arbitrate by giving written notice to Tomofun within 30 days of the date of your acceptance of this Agreement, or 30 days after Tomofun makes material changes to this section of this Agreement. You should send your cancellation notice to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: (i) your name, (ii) your Tomofun account email address; (iii) your mailing address; (iv) a statement of your wish not to resolve disputes with Tomofun through arbitration. Your notice to opt-out of arbitration only applies to this Agreement; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with Tomofun or enter into other such agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration terms of this Agreement shall not affect the other arbitration agreements between you and Tomofun. Should you choose to withdraw from the arbitration provision, all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the state and federal courts of San Francisco County in the State of California or a United States District Court for the Northern District of California located in San Francisco, California, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.
a. Entire Agreement
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written between the parties with respect to any Services provided by Tomofun. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may also be subject to additional terms and conditions, posted policies, guidelines, or rules that may apply when you use the Services, use or access the services, content or software of our affiliates, third parties or collaborating partners, or our enter sweepstakes, promotions, or contests.
b. Term for Cause of Action
Any claim under this Agreement must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred; claims made under the separate terms and conditions of purchase for goods or services are not subject to this limitation.
c. Governing Law
Except to the extent a claim or dispute is preempted by U.S. federal law, any claim or dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to provisions of conflicts of law. Any lawsuit arising from or related to this Agreement shall be brought exclusively before the Superior Court of California, County of San Francisco, and you hereby agree to the jurisdiction of any such court, unless such claim or dispute is required to be arbitrated as set forth in an above section.
The section titles in this Agreement are for your convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
