To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither Apple, Google, Amazon, or any other platform from which you downloaded the Service is a party to this Agreement or your purchase or license of the Service. None of the foregoing entities make any warranties, or assume any obligations whatsoever with respect to: (i) the Service; or (ii) any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses from the Service, including any warranties arising from claims of infringement of intellectual property or personal rights, products liability, or failure of the Service to perform, execute, or conform to any standard.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.

You expressly understand and agree that Spiralburst Studio is not liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including damages for loss of profits, goods, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if Spiralburst Studio has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from the use or the inability to use the Service or any other matter relating to the Service.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, the liability of Spiralburst Studio and its affiliates will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.

13. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify Spiralburst Studio and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees against any claim, demand, loss, costs, or expense, including attorneys’ fees, made by any person or entity arising out of your violation of this Agreement, state or federal laws or regulations, or any other person’s rights, including infringement of any copyright or violation of any proprietary or privacy right. Under no circumstances, including any negligent act, will Spiralburst Studio or its affiliates or agents be liable for any damages of any kind that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the Service.

16. Governing Law; Mediation; Jurisdiction

The Agreement, and all future agreements you enter into with Spiralburst Studio, unless otherwise indicated on such other agreement, will be governed by the laws of the State of Pennsylvania. This is the case regardless of whether you reside or transact business with Spiralburst Studio, or any of its affiliates or agents, in the State of Pennsylvania or elsewhere. Unless a dispute would be governed by the terms of Section 17 below, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.

For EU users only: In the event of a dispute relating to the interpretation, performance, or validity of this Agreement, an amicable solution can be sought before any legal action. You can file your complaint with Spiralburst Studio by sending a message via email to support@spiralburst.com. In case of failure, you can, within one year of the failed request, have recourse to an Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure by filing an online complaint on the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution website: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage. In the event that out-of-court dispute resolutions fail, the dispute may be brought before the competent courts.

17. Binding Arbitration

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Service (each, a “Claim”) will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court (except that you may assert claims in small-claims court if your claims qualify). You agree that each Claim must be brought individually.


The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement and this binding arbitration clause.

Arbitration is a process with no judge or jury – an arbitrator will review the arguments in the dispute and award damages and other relief just like a court would. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement as a court otherwise would. Court review of the arbitration award is limited under the Federal Arbitration Act.

To start an arbitration, you must send an email to support@spiralburst.com describing your Claim and requesting arbitration, or we may do the same by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to your address. The proceedings will be conducted through JAMS, using their Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. You can view these rules at jamsadr.com or by calling 800-352-5267. The payment of the initial filing fees will be made by the party filing the Claim, and any other filing and other fees will be apportioned as directed by the JAMS rules. The arbitration will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, unless the parties agree to video, phone, or internet connection appearances.

Except as otherwise set forth below, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and Spiralburst Studio will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given (including any attorneys’ fees and costs awarded), and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based.

Nothwithstanding the terms of this Section, either of us may bring a lawsuit in court for equitable relief, for any misuse or infringement of intellectual property rights, or for any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use of the Service.


You and Spiralburst Studio agree that if any portion this Section is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed and the remainder of the Section will be given full force and effect.
