  1. Access and Use of the Services; Local Storage of Information

  2. You may view a MorphCast in one of two modes: one that involves the use of facial recognition software and one that does not. When using a Browser, Viewers may choose their preferred viewing mode. You must use a Browser to play a MorphCast video. Based upon machine-learning techniques and the personal information that you provide, the Browser collects personal information regarding your preferences in viewing MorphCasts and uses that information to filter the content, vary the music, video focus and effects, and viewing speed of a MorphCast. This personal information is stored only in the Browser on your computer or phone, and is not shared with Cynny or anyone else. Any collection of personal information is governed by our Privacy Policy.

    Users can share and/or view Content via the Services. Users decide what Content to share, but the output of such Content via the Services is based on input from, and tailored to, each viewer-user. Users are required to have the MorphCast App to create Content, but users can view and share the output of the Content on the Browser.

    You are fully responsible for what you copy, share and download via the Services, and all other activities performed with the Services.

    You may not access or use, or attempt to access or use, the Services for any unlawful or unauthorized purpose, to take any action that could harm us or any person or entity (a “person”), interfere with the operation of the Services, or use the Services in a manner that violates any laws.

  8. Indemnification

    You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Cynny, and its affiliates, officers, directors, contractors, agents, employees, successors and assigns from and against any and all demands, claims, damages, liabilities, judgments, fines, interest, penalties, losses, costs, expenses and harms, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and fees of other professional advisers, arising out of or in connection with (i) your use of the Services (including, without limitation, your Content, content owned by Cynny, and your use of any other user’s Content in connection with the use of the Services), (ii) your online conduct, (iii) your violation or breach of this TOU, (iv) your failure to comply with any applicable laws or regulations, (v) your negligence, willful misconduct, or violations of the intellectual property or other rights of any person, or (vi) any of your dealings or transactions with other persons resulting from use of the Services. You shall not settle any such claim without the prior written consent of Cynny. Cynny reserves the right to assume sole control of the defense activities for any such claim.

  9. Integration and Severability

    These TOU, including the Privacy Policy referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between Cynny and you, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us. In the event any provision of this TOU is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.

  10. No Waiver

    Our failure to enforce any provisions of this TOU or respond to a breach by you or other parties shall in no way waive our right to subsequently enforce any terms or conditions of the TOU, or to act with respect to similar breaches.

  11. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Time Period for Bringing Claims

    • Location and Governing Law.These TOU are governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of California, as applicable, without giving effect to their principles of conflicts of law. By using the Services, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other states, countries, territories or jurisdictions. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a court of competent jurisdiction located in San Mateo County, California for any action not subject to Arbitration as set forth below. You agree that: (i) the Services shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Services shall be deemed a passive app that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over the Company, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California.

    • Notice of Dispute.In the event of a dispute, you or Cynny must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and a proposed solution. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to the Cynny at 585 Broadway St., Redwood City, CA 94063. Cynny will send any Notice of Dispute to you by U.S. Mail to your address if we have it, or otherwise to your email address. You and Cynny will attempt to resolve any dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or Cynny may commence arbitration.

    • Binding Arbitration.If we have not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these TOU by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. Any such arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and will be conducted in San Mateo county, California. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, except that the Company will pay for your reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if your claim for damages does not exceed $25,000 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

    • Time Limit for Claims.Claims or disputes must be filed within one year. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under these TOU must be filed within one year in small claims court, or in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute isn't filed within one year, it is permanently barred.

    No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between Cynny and the user or as a result of these TOU or the use of the Services.
