Last Updated April 02, 2021

These terms of use and our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference (collectively, “Terms of Use”), govern the relationship between you and Avoroast LLC, a California limited liability company doing business as Ninjobu, and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates (collectively, “Ninjobu” or “we” or “us”) relating in any way to your use of any online, mobile, or downloadable product or service to which you have access, any product or service that requires an internet connection or Ninjobu account to access, install, use, or play, any Ninjobu account you use to access online or mobile products or services, and any Ninjobu website, including but not limited to ninjobu.com, and any service accessible from a Ninjobu webpage (collectively, the “Ninjobu Services” and individually a "Ninjobu Service”) offered by Ninjobu. Each Ninjobu Service may have its own specific Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and if you download, access, or use a Ninjobu Service, you agree to also be bound by its specific Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

You acknowledge that you may access and/or download some Ninjobu Services for free, and while you may purchase a subscription which will unlock additional content options (“Subscriptions”), such Subscriptions are entirely voluntary and not required to participate in or advance within Ninjobu Services. You also acknowledge that you may not access and/or download other Ninjobu Services without executing a separate agreement with Ninjobu which may require you to pay for content or services (“Service Charges”).

2. LIMITED LICENSE, LOGIN INFORMATION, AND YOUR ACCOUNT AND ELIGIBILITY.

Subject to your agreement and continuing compliance with these Terms of Use and Ninjobu’s policies, Ninjobu grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable limited license subject to the limitations below to access and use Ninjobu Services. Unless otherwise specified, Ninjobu Services are for your personal and non-commercial use.

You may create an account with us (“Ninjobu Account”) by providing a username and/or email address and a password (“Login Information”). With some Ninjobu Services, we may also allow you to create an account through third party social networks or services (such as Facebook) with whom you maintain an account (a “Third Party Service”).

You shall not share your Ninjobu Account or your Login Information, nor let anyone else access your account or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Login Information, and you will be solely responsible for all uses of your Login Information, including any purchases, Subscriptions, Service Charges, or other changes to your Ninjobu Account and/or Ninjobu Account status, whether or not authorized by you. Ninjobu will not be responsible for anything that happens through or to your Ninjobu Account and/or Ninjobu Account status as a result of you allowing any third party to access your Login Information and/or Ninjobu Account.

Ninjobu reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights.

Eligibility

There are limitations on who may download and access Ninjobu Services. You may not download or access Ninjobu Services if you are under 13 years of age. If we learn that a user under 13 years of age is accessing a Ninjobu Service despite this restriction, we will immediately delete their account and all personal information we have related to their account.

You also may not use Ninjobu Services if: (i) you cannot enter into a binding contract with us and your legal guardian has not agreed to these Terms of Use on your behalf; (ii) you are a convicted sex offender; or (iii) we have previously banned you from using a Ninjobu Service.

If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, or under the age of majority where you live, you may not use Ninjobu Services unless your parent or legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to these Terms of Use and the specific Terms of Use for that Ninjobu Service.

3. MODIFICATION OF TERMS OF USE

We reserve the right to modify these Terms of Use from time to time by posting updated versions in Ninjobu Services or otherwise notifying you of changes through Ninjobu Services. Unless we state otherwise, changes are effective when we post or notify you of them. By continuing to use a Ninjobu Service after the posting of changes to these Terms of Use, you agree to the changes and the updated Terms of Use.

You acknowledge that any purported transfers of Ninjobu Service Accounts or Subscriptions in violation of this Section, including but not limited to transfers in exchange for money or other compensation, are void and breach these Terms of Use, and that we have no responsibility to assist you in connection with completing any such transaction. We may terminate or suspend your Ninjobu Account and/or your right to access or use Ninjobu Services if we discover or reasonably believe that you have attempted to buy, sell, rent, lease, license, or transfer your Ninjobu Account or Subscription, or used or accessed an account or Subscription transferred by another user, or linked to or otherwise endorsed or identified any websites, organizations, or persons that attempt to buy, sell, rent, lease, license, or transfer accounts or Subscriptions in violation of this Section.

If you live outside of California, you waive any other statute, law, or rule of similar effect in your jurisdiction.

8. USER FEEDBACK

While we are continually working to develop and evaluate our own product ideas and features, we pride ourselves on paying close attention to the interests, feedback, comments, and suggestions we receive from the user community. If you choose to contribute by sending us any ideas for products, Ninjobu Services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, refinements, technologies, content offerings (such as audio, visual, games, or other types of content), promotions, strategies, or product/feature names, or any related documentation, artwork, computer code, diagrams, or other materials (collectively “Feedback”), then regardless of what your accompanying communication may say, the following terms will apply, so that future misunderstandings can be avoided.

14. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE; CLASS ACTION WAIVER

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND INCLUDES WAIVER OF A TRIAL BY JURY IN A COURT AND OF THE ABILITY TO BRING ANY CLAIM ON BEHALF OF OTHERS.

Overview

This Section 14 (i.e., the “Agreement to Arbitrate”) applies to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If the laws of your jurisdiction prohibit the application of provisions of this Section 14 notwithstanding Section 15 below, those prohibited provisions will not apply to you. IF YOU LIVE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, NONE OF THIS SECTION 14 APPLIES TO YOU.

In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination or breach thereof, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. Most user concerns can be resolved by contacting our customer support team at support@ninjobu.com. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your concerns and a dispute remains, this Section explains how you and we agree to resolve it. As explained in more detail below, we each agree to resolve any dispute between us through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.

Agreement to Arbitrate; Exceptions

If we cannot resolve our dispute through customer support, YOU AND WE AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN US IN INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION, INCLUDING CLAIMS CONCERNING ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US, YOUR DECISION TO DOWNLOAD OR ACCESS A NINJOBU SERVICE, YOUR USE OF A NINJOBU SERVICE, OR YOUR ACCOUNT. This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly, and applies to all legal claims under any legal theory (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory), and applies to any disputes or claims that you assert or that arise even after you stop using or delete your Ninjobu Account for an Ninjobu Service, stop using a Ninjobu Service, or delete an Ninjobu Service application from your mobile or other device. This Agreement to Arbitrate also applies to any claims that are currently the subject of a purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. You and we agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of the terms or formation of this contract, including whether any dispute between us is subject to this Agreement to Arbitrate (i.e., the arbitrator will decide the arbitrability of any dispute) and whether all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.

An arbitration is a proceeding before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and provides more limited discovery. It follows different rules than court proceedings, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND WE ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND THE RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.

This Section 14, however, does not apply to the following types of claims or disputes, which you or we may bring in court in accordance with Section 15 below:

(1) claims of infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, including such claims seeking injunctive relief; and

(2) claims for preliminary injunctive relief for violations of sections 4 and 6 herein.

This Section does not prevent you from bringing your dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agencies that can, if the law allows, seek relief from us for you. Also, any of us can bring a claim in small claims court either in Los Angeles County, California or the county where you live, or some other place we both agree on, if such claims meet all the requirements to be brought in that court.

The Federal Arbitration Act applies to this Section 14. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (including Rule 1(g) of those Rules that provides for arbitration through the submission of documents only/desk arbitration where no disclosed claims or counterclaims exceed $25,000), as modified by these Terms of Use, The Rules are available at www.adr.org. The arbitrator will be bound by these Terms of Use.

To start an arbitration proceeding, use the form on AAA’s website (www.adr.org) or call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

Any arbitration under this section that is required to take place in person will take place pursuant to the Rules, which provide that face-to-face proceedings be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances.

If your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your filing fee promptly upon being notified of the filing, or pay it for you if you are unable to pay it and we receive a written request from you. Also, if your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your share of the arbitration costs, including your share of arbitrator compensation, at the conclusion of the proceeding, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous or your costs are unreasonable as determined by the arbitrator. If you seek more than US$25,000, the arbitration costs, including arbitrator compensation, will be split between you and us according to the Rules. Irrespective of the amount you seek, neither party shall be entitled to have their attorneys’ fees or costs paid by the other party, provided, however, that either party may seek to recover their attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration if the arbitrator determines that the other party's claims (or counterclaims) are frivolous or the other party's costs are unreasonable.

For EU Users

In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination or breach thereof, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. If they do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by any party to the other(s), any unresolved controversy or claim shall be settled by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”) in accordance with the provisions of its International Arbitration Rules. The place of arbitration shall be in London, England. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor its representatives may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of Ninjobu.

Class Action Waiver

For disputes arising between Ninjobu and you, or any other user, that are subject to this Agreement to Arbitrate, you and we agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis. NEITHER YOU NOR WE CAN BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT COMBINE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIM INTO A SINGLE CASE, AND CANNOT PRESIDE OVER ANY CONSOLIDATED, CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, UNLESS WE BOTH AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING. THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION OR AWARD IN ONE PERSON’S CASE CAN ONLY AFFECT THE PERSON WHO BROUGHT THE CLAIM, NOT OTHER USERS OF NINJOBU SERVICES, AND CANNOT BE USED TO DECIDE DISPUTES WITH OTHERS.

If a court decides that this “Class Action Waiver” subsection is not enforceable or is invalid, then Section 14 shall cease to have effect, however, the remaining portions of the Terms and Conditions will remain in full force and effect.

Service of Process

To initiate arbitration or any legal proceeding against Ninjobu, you must serve initiating documents on Ninjobu’s registered agent for service of process at: David Lizerbram, David Lizerbram & Associates, 3180 University Avenue, Suite 260, San Diego, California 92104.

Changes to this Section 14

Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future change to this Section 14, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to: support@ninjobu.com.

15. APPLICABLE LAW.

For Users other than EU Users

You agree that these Terms of Use shall be deemed to have been made and executed in the State of California, U.S.A. and that any dispute arising under the Terms of Use, as well as any other dispute or claim that may arise between you and us, shall be governed by and resolved in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions or principals.

For claims not required to be arbitrated under Section 14, or in the event the arbitration provision in Section 14 is deemed unenforceable or voided, you agree that any claim asserted in any legal proceeding by you against us shall be commenced and maintained exclusively in any state or federal court located in Los Angeles County, California having subject matter jurisdiction with respect to the dispute between the parties and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts. In any dispute arising between us, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorneys’ fees and expenses.

For EU Users

You agree that these Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of England, excluding the law of conflicts and the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). However, where the laws of England provide a lower degree of consumer protection than the laws of your country of residence, the consumer protection laws of your country shall prevail. In any dispute arising between us, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorneys’ fees and expenses.

16. OWNERSHIP; TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS

All rights, title and interest in and to Ninjobu Services (including without limitation any titles, content, computer code, themes, objects, catchphrases, concepts, artwork, animations, sounds, musical compositions, audio-visual effects, methods of operations, moral rights, documentation, in-Service chat transcripts, and recordings) are owned by Ninjobu.

17. MISCELLANEOUS

Except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, in the event that any provision of these Terms of Use shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining portions of these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use constitute and contain the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior oral or written agreements. You agree that these Terms of Use are not intended to confer and do not confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties to these Terms of Use.

If we provide a translated version of these Terms of Use or any other terms or policy incorporated or referenced in these Terms of Use, it is for informational purposes only. If the translated version means something different than the English version, then the English meaning will be the one that applies.

If we do not enforce a provision of these Terms of Use, that does not waive our right to do so later. And, if we do expressly waive a provision of these Terms of Use, that does not mean it is waived for all time in the future. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by both you and us to be legally binding.

Ninjobu is subject to existing laws and legal process, and we may comply with law enforcement or regulatory requests or requirements notwithstanding any term to the contrary in these Terms of Use.

We may notify you via postings on ninjobu.com or via e-mail or via any other contact information you provide to us. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all notices given by you or required from you under these Terms of Use or the Ninjobu Privacy Policy shall be in writing and addressed to: Avoroast LLC. Attn: Legal. Any notices that you provide that do not comply with these requirements shall have no legal effect.

Ninjobu shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Ninjobu, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond Ninjobu’s control, such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
