A. Accounts. In order to participate in the online learning activities, games and features offered on our Service, the Service requires an adult user to first register for an account (“Account”) using the Service’s registration form. After an adult user completes the initial registration process and is confirmed as a member of the Service, if such user is a Parent of the child(ren) that will be the primary users of the Account, then the Parent will be prompted to authorize access to the Service for their children. Further, a Parent of the child(ren) that are the primary users of the Account must always be the administrator of the Account. We may provide different account management tools that will permit a Parent to specify different level of user access to certain information in their Account, the functionality and features of which are subject to change from time-to-time. Your decision to provide this information is purely voluntarily and optional; however, if you elect not to provide it, then you may not be able participate on the Service. When you register for an Account, you will select (or we will issue you) your own password at the time of registration and you agree that:
(i) You will not use a username (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else, belongs to another person, violates the intellectual property or other right of any person or entity, or is offensive. We may reject the use of any password, username, or email address for any other reason, in our sole discretion.
(ii) You will provide accurate, current, and complete registration information about yourself and your Child in connection with the registration process and, as permitted, will maintain and update it continuously and promptly to keep it accurate, current, and complete.
(iii) You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, password, and username – whether or not you authorized the activity.
(iv) You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your Device so that others may not access any password protected portion of the Service using your name, username, or password. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account, password, or username, or any other breach of security. You will not sell, transfer, or assign your Account or any Account rights.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage (of any kind and under any legal theory) to you or any third party arising from your inability or failure for any reason to comply with any of the foregoing obligations.
If any information that you provide, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any information that you provide, is false, inaccurate, outdated, incomplete, or violates these Terms or any Additional Terms, then we may suspend or terminate your Account pursuant to Section 4(C) or deny you access to all or part of the Service.
B. Profiles. Your account may allow you to post a profile (a “Profile Page”). We may offer you the ability to set preferences relating to your profile or Service activities, but settings may not become effective immediately or be error free, and options may change from time-to-time. We assume no responsibility or liability for users’ Profile Page material. Profile Pages may only be set up by an authorized representative of the individual that is the subject of the Profile Page. We do not review Profile Pages to determine if they were created by an appropriate party, and we are not responsible for any unauthorized Profile Pages that may appear on the Service. If there is any dispute as to whether a Profile Page has been created or is being maintained by an authorized representative of the individual who is the subject of that Profile Page, then we shall have the sole right, but are not obligated, to resolve such dispute as we determine is appropriate in our sole discretion. Such resolution may include, without limitation, deleting or disabling access to Profile Pages, or any portion thereof, at any time without notice.
A. User-Generated Content.
(i) General. Lola may now or in the future offer users of the Service the opportunity to post, upload, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, or otherwise make available on or submit through the Service (collectively, “submit”) messages, text, illustrations, files, images, graphics, photos, comments, sounds, music, videos, information, content, data, questions, suggestions, personally identifiable information, or other information or materials and the ideas contained therein (collectively, “User-Generated Content”), and subject to the rights and license you grant herein, you retain whatever legally cognizable right, title, and interest that you have in your User-Generated Content.
(iii) License to Lola of Your User-Generated Content. Except as otherwise described in any Additional Terms, which will govern the submission of your User-Generated Content to the extent specified therein, you grant Lola, the non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, and cost-free right and license to use, copy, record, distribute, reproduce, disclose, sublicense, display, publicly perform, transmit, publish, broadcast, translate, make derivative works of, all or any portion of your User-Generated Content (and derivative works thereof), for the limited purpose of operating, developing, providing, and improving the Service, researching and developing new products and services, and making User-Generated Content available outside of the Service. In order to further effect the rights and license that you grant to Lola to your User-Generated Content, you also hereby grant Lola, the right to use and exploit your name, persona, and likeness in connection with any User-Generated Content, without any obligation to you. Except as prohibited by law, you agree to waive, any moral rights (including attribution and integrity) that you may have in any User-Generated Content, even if it is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. To the extent not waivable, you irrevocably agree not to exercise such rights (if any) in a manner that interferes with any exercise of the granted rights. You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted in this Section 3(A)(iii).
(iv) Lola’s Exclusive Right to Manage All User-Generated Content. Lola may, but will not have any obligation to, review, monitor, display, post, store, maintain, accept, or otherwise make use of, any of your User-Generated Content, and Lola may, in its sole discretion, delete, move, re-format, remove or refuse to post or otherwise make use of User-Generated Content without notice or any liability to you or any third party; provided, however, that we reserve the right to treat User-Generated Content on the Service, or on certain portions of the Service, as content stored at the direction of users for which we will not exercise editorial control except to block or remove content that comes to Lola’s attention and is offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, harassing, threatening, abusive, illegal or that violate any right of any third party or are otherwise objectionable to Lola. Such User-Generated Content submitted by you or others need not, however, be maintained on the Service by us for any period of time and you will not have the right, once submitted, to access, archive, maintain, or otherwise use such User-Generated Content on the Service.
(v) Representations and Warranties Related to Your User-Generated Content. Each time you submit any User-Generated Content, you represent and warrant that you are at least the age of majority in the state in which you reside and are the parent or legal guardian, or have all proper consents from the parent or legal guardian, of any minor who is depicted in or contributed to any User-Generated Content you submit; provided, however, that with respect to children who submit User-Generated Content, the Parent authorizing such child(ren) to access the Service accept full responsibility for such submissions and all consents necessary to conform with these Terms and/or any Additional Terms. As to that User-Generated Content, such responsible submitting party represents and warrants that such party: (a) is the sole author and owner of the intellectual property and other rights to the UserGenerated Content, or has a lawful right to submit the User-Generated Content and grant Lola the rights to it that are granting by these Terms and/or any Additional Terms, all without any Lola obligation to obtain consent of any third party and without creating any obligation or liability of Lola; (b) the User-Generated Content is accurate; (d) the User-Generated Content does not and, as to Lola’s permitted uses and exploitation set forth in these Terms and/or any Additional Terms, will not infringe any intellectual property or other right of any third party; and (e) the User-Generated Content will not violate These Terms or any Additional Terms, or cause injury or harm to any person.
(vii) User-Generated Content Rules. Your participation in the activities on the Service is subject to all of the Terms, including these rules: All of your User-Generated Content either must be original with you or you must have all necessary rights in it from third parties in order to permit you to comply with these Terms and any Additional Terms. Your User-Generated Content should not contain any visible logos, phrases, or trademarks that belong to third parties. Do not use any User-Generated Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own; this includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet. If anyone contributes to your User-Generated Content or has any rights to your User-Generated Content, or if anyone appears or is referred to in the User-Generated Content, then you must also have their permission to submit such User-Generated Content to Lola (for example, if someone has taken a picture of you and your friend, and you submit that photo to Lola as your User-Generated Content, then you must obtain your friend’s and the photographer’s permission to do so.). If you choose to submit photos to the Service, link to embedded videos, or include other images of real people, then make sure they are of you or of you and someone you know – and only if you have their express permission to submit it. All of your Service activities must be venue appropriate, as determined by us. Be respectful of others’ opinions and comments so we can continue to build Communities for everyone to enjoy. If you think your User-Generated Content might offend someone or be embarrassing to someone, then chances are it probably will and it doesn’t belong on the Service. Cursing, harassing, bullying, stalking, insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip, and similar actions are prohibited. Your User-Generated Content must not threaten, abuse, or harm others, and it must not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or physical handicap. Your User-Generated Content must not be defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit. If you submit User-Generated Content that Lola reasonably believes violates these Rules, then we may take any legally available action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion. However, we are not obligated to take any action not required by law. We may require, at any time, proof of the permissions referred to above in a form acceptable to us. Failure to provide such proof may lead to, among other things, the User-Generated Content in question being removed from the Service.
(vi) Enforcement. Lola has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights to your User-Generated Content, but you grant us the right to protect and enforce our rights to your User-Generated Content, including by bringing and controlling actions in your name and on your behalf (at Lola’s cost and expense).

These features and services may include the ability to access the Service’s features and upload content to the Service, receive messages from the Service, and download applications to your wireless Internet Device (collectively, “Wireless Features”). Standard messaging, data, and other fees may be charged by your carrier to participate in Wireless Features. Fees and charges may appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features and certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Internet Device.

Certain portions of this Section 8 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Lola agree that we intend that this Section 8 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 8 can only be amended by mutual agreement.
A. First – Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of Lola’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”, which includes those actions set forth in Section 8(D)), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 8(A). Your notice to us must be sent to: Lola, 718 Kingman Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90401 (Attn: Business and Legal Affairs). For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Lola and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Lola to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Lola, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
B. Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution.
(i) Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 8(A) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this Section 8(B). If we cannot resolve an Excluded Dispute as set forth in Section 8(A) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Excluded Dispute to formal arbitration only if you and Lola consent, in a writing signed by you and an Officer or legal representative of Lola, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration. In such a case (and only in such a case), that Excluded Dispute will be deemed a “Dispute” for the remainder of this Section 8(B).
Upon expiration of the applicable sixty-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than fifteen (15) years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Lola elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three-member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party-appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. If you and Lola do not both consent to the arbitration of an Excluded Dispute as set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph of this Section 8(B)(i), then this paragraph and the remainder of this Section 8(B) will not apply to the Excluded Dispute.
If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within sixty (60) days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of Lola consent to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for a the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
AAA: 800.778.7879 JAMS: 949.224.1810
(ii) Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Lola to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 8 to be enforceable, then Lola will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 8 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
C. Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 8(A)) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
D. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 8 will not apply to any legal action taken by Lola to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User-Generated Content and/or Lola’s intellectual property rights (including such Lola may claim that may be in dispute), Lola’s operations, and/or Lola’s products or services.
E. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section 8(G).
F. No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator selected pursuant to Section 8(B)(i) holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 8(B) to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 8(G).
G. Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles County. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section 8(B), and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California. Accordingly, you and Lola consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
H. Governing Law. THESE TERMS AND THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS WILL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES.

The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the foregoing events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if the Lola Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action of contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, acts of god, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Service).
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages of the sort that are described above, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
EXCEPT AS MAY BE PROVIDED IN ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE LOLA PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE AND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS EXCEED AN AGGREGATE OF $10.00 FOR ALL POSSIBLE DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION.
If you claim that you have incurred any loss, damages, or injuries in connection with your use of the Service, then the losses, damages, and injuries will not be irreparable or sufficient to entitle you to an injunction or to other equitable relief of any kind. This means that, in connection with your potential claim, you agree that you will not seek, and that you will not be permitted to obtain, any court or other action that may interfere with or prevent the development or exploitation of the Service, Content, User-Generated Content, product, service, or other intellectual property owned, licensed, or controlled by Lola (including your licensed User-Generated Content) or a licensor of Lola.
A. DMCA Notice. Lola will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), as set forth below. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us a written notice that includes all of the following:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice”;
(ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the Service on which the material appears);
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and
(vii) your electronic or physical signature.
Lola will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, e-mail, or facsimile at the addresses below:
By Mail: Lola Tech Systems, Inc. 2345 Outpost Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068 (Attn: DMCA Agent)
By E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Lola may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and Lola may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification.
Without limiting Lola’s other rights, Lola may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Service and any other website owned or operated by Lola.
B. Counter-Notification. If access on the Service to a work that you submitted to Lola is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”;
(ii) a description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (please include the URL of the Service from which the material was removed or access to it disabled);
(iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the username of your account;
(v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Central District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and
(vi) your electronic or physical signature.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed of disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Service. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Lola Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs, investigations, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, settlements, interest, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that directly or indirectly arise from or are related to any claim, suit, action, demand, or proceeding made or brought against any Lola Party, or on account of the investigation, defense, or settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with: (i) User-Generated Content submitted by you; (ii) use of the Service by you and your activities in connection with the Service; (iii) breach or anticipatory breach of these Terms or any Additional Terms by you; (iv) violation or anticipatory violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances, or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities in connection with use of the Service by you or users of your Account or activities in connection with the Service by you; (v) information or material transmitted through your Internet Device, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates, or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy, or other right of any person or entity; (vi) any misrepresentation made by you; or (vii) Lola Parties’ use of the information that you submit to us (including your User-Generated Content) (all of the foregoing, “Claims and Losses”). You will cooperate as fully required by Lola Parties in the defense of any Claim and Losses. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lola Parties retain the exclusive right to settle, compromise, and pay any and all Claims and Losses. Lola Parties reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claims and Losses. You will not settle any Claims and Losses without, in each instance, the prior written consent of an officer of a Lola Party.
B. Lola’s Consent or Approval. As to any provision in these Terms or any Additional Terms that grants Lola a right of consent or approval, or permits Lola to exercise a right in its “sole discretion”, Lola may exercise that right, in its sole and absolute discretion. No Lola consent or approval may be deemed to have been granted by Lola without being in writing and signed by an officer of Lola.
C. Operation of Service; International Issues. Lola controls and operates the Service from its headquarters in Los, Angeles, California, in the United States, and Lola makes no representation that the Site is appropriate or available for use outside of the United States. If you use the Service from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply. You and we disclaim any application to these Terms of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
D. Export Controls. Software related to or made available by the Service may be subject to export controls of the U.S.A. No software from the Service may be downloaded, exported, or re-exported (i) into (or to a national or resident of) any country or other jurisdiction to which the U.S.A. has embargoed goods (which, as of the effective date of these Terms, includes Cuba, North Korea, Iran, and Syria), or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders. By downloading any software related to the Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of, any such country or on any such list.
E. Severability; Interpretation. If any provision of these Terms, or any Additional Terms, is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms or the Additional Terms, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms or the Additional Terms (which will remain in full force and effect). To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to waive, and you hereby waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter.
F. Communications. When you communicate with us electronically, such as via a Service communication tool, you consent to receive communications from us electronically. Please note that we are not obligated to respond to all inquiries that we receive. 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.
G. Investigations; Cooperation with Law Enforcement; Termination; Survival. Lola reserves the right, without any limitation, to: (i) investigate any suspected breaches of its Service security or its information technology or other systems or networks, (ii) investigate any suspected breaches of these Terms and any Additional Terms, (iii) involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating any of the foregoing matters, (iv) prosecute violators of these Terms and any Additional Terms, and (v) discontinue the Service, in whole or in part, or suspend or terminate your access to it, in whole or in part, including any Accounts or registrations, at any time, without notice, for any reason and without any obligation to you or any third party. Any suspension or termination will not affect your obligations to Lola under these Terms or any Additional Terms. Upon suspension or termination of your access to the Service, or upon notice from Lola, all rights granted to you under these Terms or any Additional Terms will cease immediately, and you agree that you will immediately discontinue use of the Service. The provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, which by their nature should survive your suspension or termination will survive, including the rights and licenses you grant to Lola in these Terms, as well as the indemnities, releases, disclaimers, and limitations on liability and the provisions regarding jurisdiction, choice of law, and no class action.
H. Assignment. Lola may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms and any Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Lola.
I. No Waiver. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms or any Additional Terms, (i) no failure or delay by you or Lola in exercising any of rights, powers, or remedies under will operate as a waiver of that or any other right, power, or remedy, and (ii) no waiver or modification of any term of these Terms or any Additional Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver or modification is sought to be enforced.
