So... we’re going to try to write in the most open and honest way we can about what we do and what we believe at Honey. Hopefully this will create an open dialogue about how we use your data to help negotiate the best possible deals for you that we possibly can. If you have any questions or comments, we are always listening at email@example.com.
Accepting the Terms
By using the Service, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse our websites or use our software without registering) or you are a “Member” (which means that you have registered to create an account with Honey). The term “you” or “User” refers to a Visitor or a Member. The term “we” or “our” refers to Honey. You may not use the Service and you may not accept this Agreement if you are not of a legal age to form a binding contract with Honey. If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it or if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity that you have the authority to bind such entity. If you do not agree to this Agreement, please don’t use the Service.
We really want to make sure you read this next part so we’re going to use all-caps: THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS (1) AN ARBITRATION PROVISION; (2) A WAIVER OF RIGHTS TO BRING A CLASS ACTION AGAINST US; AND (3) A RELEASE BY YOU OF ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGE AGAINST US THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE PROVISIONS.
Privacy and your Personal Information
Description of the Service
As part of the Service, we provide you with a suite of tools that allows Users to locate and obtain deals, coupons, exclusive offers, pricing information, product, and other information to help make informed purchase decisions at attractive prices. We also allow you to make purchases from merchants while you are using the Honey Mobile App. Further details about the Honey Mobile App are described below. The Service also includes our Honey Gold and any other offerings described below.
The Service is provided to you by Honey as a free service. We work on your behalf to locate the best publicly available offers and to negotiate exclusive offers that are better than any publicly available deal. We make money to sustain the service when you purchase or engage with these offers.
Honey Mobile App and Merchant Purchases
The Honey Mobile App is a mobile app that allows you to view information about products listed for sale by third party merchants online, find exclusive offers from those products, track pricing information, and purchase products from those third party merchants while within the Honey Mobile App.
All products you purchase from a third party merchant through the Honey Mobile App are: (a) priced by the applicable third party merchant (including but not limited to whether such prices include applicable local, state, or federal taxes, and any additional fees, such as shipping and handling); and (b) fulfilled, shipped, and otherwise serviced (including but not limited to the processing of returns, refunds, and cancellations) by the applicable third party merchant and not by Honey. Honey is not a re-seller or distributor of any products of third party merchants displayed within the Honey Mobile App.
You agree that your purchase from a third party merchant within the Honey Mobile App is subject to the merchant’s own terms and conditions applicable to such purchase. The Honey Mobile App will present you those merchant terms and conditions prior to making your purchase, and you can also access them from within the legal page of your account section of the Honey Mobile App. You agree that Honey is in no way responsible or liable to you for any products you purchase within the Honey Mobile App, including for any product liability claim, improper charges, delivery failures, pricing errors, or inaccurate product descriptions.
When you purchase products within the Honey Mobile App, you agree to pay the price for such products as set forth in the Honey Mobile App, and all shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes in connection with your purchase (the “Full Purchase Amount”).
Making a purchase within the Honey Mobile App then involves certain steps that we want to make sure you understand. When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, you authorize Honey and its service providers to take the steps outlined below:
- When you first make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, Honey’s third party payment processors will issue a temporary authorization charge (also known as a pre-auth hold) on the payment card that you provided for the purchase. We do this to verify your payment information, and this authorization charge will be released following successful completion of your payment transaction.
- Next, to fulfill your purchase, Honey’s third party service provider will create a temporary single-use payment card (a “Single-Use Card”) that is linked to your name and your shipping and billing information. The original payment card that you provided for the purchase will then be charged the Full Purchase Amount by Honey’s third party service providers, and this charged amount will be used to fund the Single-Use Card.
- Finally, the Single-Use Card will be used to purchase the product(s) that you have selected to purchase in step 1 above, from each of the applicable third party merchant(s). This Single-Use Card is used to facilitate a single transaction, including any corresponding refund, and is not used for any other purpose.
- Please note that, if you’re using iOS version 1.11 of the Mobile App (or older), your payment card information remains stored and encrypted on your mobile device’s keychain feature. On iOS version 2.0 of the Mobile App (and later), and on the Android-based Mobile App, this information is secured through our PCI Level 1 payment processor.
When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, you represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when making a transaction within the Honey Mobile App. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice and in our sole and complete discretion, to refuse to allow any user to purchase any products within the Honey Mobile App. You acknowledge and agree that the Honey Mobile App is not liable or otherwise responsible for any breaches of credit card or debit card security or privacy by any third party merchants.
If you are unhappy with your product purchase, if you wish to return your product, if you ordered a product and it has not arrived, or if you have another customer service inquiry regarding your purchased product, you will need to contact the specific merchant of that product to address such an inquiry. The Honey Mobile App may include functionality that allows you to directly find the merchant’s contact information and return information in order to resolve such inquiry.
While we attempt to be as accurate as we can in our descriptions for the products shown within the Honey Mobile App, we do not warrant that such product descriptions or related merchant information or terms shown within the Honey Mobile App are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. The inclusion of any products within the Honey Mobile App at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any other time.
When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App from a third party merchant, the Honey Mobile App will also forward to your email that you have registered to your Honey account, certain transactional emails about your purchases from that merchant, such as purchase confirmations and shipping notifications. You can check all emails and other notifications sent from a merchant related to your purchase from within your account profile section of the Honey Mobile App. You agree that Honey is in no way liable to you for any emails or other notifications that you fail to receive from the Honey Mobile App or that are not directly forwarded to your personal email address.
You are responsible for providing the mobile device, wireless service plan, software, Internet connections, and/or other equipment or services that you need to download, install, and use the Honey Mobile App. We do not guarantee that the Honey Mobile App can be accessed and used on any particular mobile device or with any particular service plan. We do not guarantee that the Honey Mobile App will be available in, or that orders for products can be placed from, any particular geographic location.
Using the Honey Mobile App from Apple App Store and Google Play Store: The following terms and conditions apply to you if you are using the Honey Mobile App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. To the extent the other terms and conditions of the rest of this Agreement conflict with the terms and conditions of this paragraph, the terms and conditions in this paragraph apply, but solely with respect to your use of the Honey Mobile App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store:
- You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between you and Honey, not Apple or Google, and that Apple and Google have no responsibility for the Honey Mobile App or content thereof. You acknowledge that Apple and Google have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Honey Mobile App.
- In the event of any failure of the Honey Mobile App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple or Google, as applicable, and they will refund the purchase price you paid to install the Honey Mobile App, if any, to you.
- To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple or Google will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Honey Mobile App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by this Agreement.
- You and Honey acknowledge that Apple and Google are not responsible for addressing any claims of yours or any third party relating to the Honey Mobile App or your possession and/or use of the Honey Mobile App, including, but not limited to: (a) product liability claims, (b) any claim that the Honey Mobile App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
- You and Honey acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the Honey Mobile App or your possession and use of the Honey Mobile App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Honey, not Apple or Google, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement.
- You must comply with applicable third party terms of agreement when using the Honey Mobile App.
- You and Honey acknowledge and agree that Apple and Google, and their subsidiaries, as applicable, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement as its relates to your license and use of the Honey Mobile App, and that, upon your acceptance of this Agreement, Apple or Google (as applicable) will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
Account Information from Third Party Sites
With the Service, Members may direct Honey to interact with existing accounts they own and that are maintained online by third party companies with which they have accounts (“Third Party Accounts”) such as Facebook or their accounts on the websites of specific merchants. Honey makes no effort to review the Third Party Accounts for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non- infringement. Honey is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third party sites. If your permission settings allow it, Honey may import information from your Third Party Accounts to help better offer the Services to you. Honey does not control the policies and practices of any third party site or service, including any Third Party Accounts you connect to the Services.
Honey cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Honey cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings.
Honey Offers and Third Party Links
Some parts of the Service are supported by sponsored links from advertisers and the display of “Honey Offers,” which are sponsored product offers that may be custom matched to you based on information stored in the Service, queries made through the Service or other information. We sometimes use specially formatted links for which we receive a commission on resulting sales or clicks from affiliate partners (“Affiliate Links”). If you click on an offer you will be redirected to the partner’s site, or a specific portion of the Honey Mobile App dedicated for the partner’s offerings, and your session will be tracked using affiliate cookies.
Honey has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Honey will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.
If there is a dispute between participants on our Service, or between users and any third party (including a merchant from whom you purchase a product within the Honey Mobile App), you agree that Honey is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Honey, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: ”A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
Honey Gold Offers
Many Honey Offers are made in the form of rewards points that we call “Honey Gold.” Honey Gold is rewarded for completing a certain action using the Service, most commonly by completing a transaction on a specific merchant partner’s website. We can afford to give you Honey Gold because these offers are designed to share with you a portion of an affiliate commission paid by a merchant to us. As such we can only provide Honey Gold to you when a transaction is successfully completed and tracked and after we are paid by a merchant. If we are not paid by any of our affiliate partners or merchants, then Honey shall have no obligation to provide any Honey Gold to you for the transaction that it was not paid for. If there are any difficulties in tracking a transaction due to your use of an ad blocker or for any other reason we may not be able to give you Honey Gold. Additionally, you must be a Member in order to participate in the Honey Gold program. We partially rely on third party tracking systems and if we cannot track a transaction was properly recorded we will be unable to give you Honey Gold. That said, if you have any trouble please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to figure out what went wrong.
In our sole discretion we may choose to award you Honey Gold if you provide enough information about your transaction. Please note that to prevent abuse your account may become ineligible for Honey Gold if tracking your transactions becomes an issue. Basically, we’re going to try to be good people and we hope you choose to do the same. This only works if everyone plays fairly.
You have no property interest in Honey Gold or any other similar rewards we may offer under our Rewards Programs. Honey Gold is not transferable and can expire as further explained below.
Expiration of Honey Gold
To maintain your Honey Gold points, you must earn at least 10 Honey Gold points during each consecutive 12-month period. If you do not earn at least 10 new Honey Gold in each 12-month period, your Honey Gold balance will automatically reset to zero (0). You agree that any disputes about whether your Honey Gold points should expire will be resolved by Honey in its sole discretion, and you agree to abide by Honey’s resolution of such dispute.
Referral And Other Rewards Programs
Periodically Honey may make you offers to receive Honey Gold or other rewards for taking actions to promote the Service (collectively Rewards Programs). In general, if you participate within the spirit of the program you will be rewarded. However, to protect ourselves from seen and unforeseen issues we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to withhold such consideration, including Honey Gold, for any reason at any time with or without any cause. By participating in Honey Rewards Programs you accept this condition. Additionally, we may choose in our sole discretion to institute a limit on how many times you can receive each type of reward. These limits will vary from program to program. If you have questions about how many times you can participate in each Rewards Program please contact us.
In association with Rewards Programs you may be issued Personalized Links that track traffic back to your account so that we can issue you rewards. You agree not to promote these Personalized Links through any unapproved channels which include but are not limited to: unsolicited email (SPAM), search advertising, display advertising, or any paid promotional channel. If you have questions about a specific promotional method please contact us for permission BEFORE you begin promoting your Personalized Link. Failure to do so will result in all rewards being withheld and your account potentially being suspended.
Honey reserves the right at any time to cancel, modify, or restrict any aspect of our Rewards Programs, including any point conversion ratios, redemption offers, expiration terms, etc., and Honey reserves the right to apply such changes retroactively to rewards already accrued under any Rewards Program.

In the future we may offer personalization options in our products that utilize knowledge about what products you are interested in to present relevant content and product offers. As we explore ways to use data to build more powerful product experiences that we believe will increase your chance of time and money savings we may provide ways to opt out of this data collection, though it may result in degraded product capabilities if such data is required to provide the product experience.

Honey may from time to time provide automatic notifications and voluntary account-related notifications. Our basic operating point of view is to do everything we possibly can to avoid annoying you so wherever possible we will minimize unnecessary notifications and provide configuration switches to limit unwanted communications.
Automatic notifications may be sent to you following certain changes made online to your Honey account, such as a change in your Registration Information.
Voluntary account notifications may be turned on by default as part of the Service. They may then be customized, deactivated or reactivated by you. These notifications allow you to choose alert messages for your accounts. Honey may add new notifications from time to time, or cease to provide certain notifications at any time upon its sole discretion. Each alert has different options available, and you may be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your notifications service.
Electronic notifications will be sent to the email address you have provided as your primary email address for the Service. If your email address changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your email address will apply to all of your notifications.
Because notifications are not encrypted, we will never include your passcode. However, notifications may include your Honey login information and some information about your accounts. Anyone with access to your email will be able to view the content of these notifications. At any time you may disable certain notifications, although we may still send you Service-related notices as needed to allow us to provide you the Service.
As part of the Honey Mobile App and to update you regarding the status of deliveries, you may receive push notifications, local client notifications, text messages, picture messages, emails or other types of messages directly sent to you outside or inside the Honey Mobile App (“Push Messages”). You acknowledge that, when you use the Honey Mobile App, your wireless service provider may charge you fees for data, text messaging and/or other wireless access, including in connection with Push Messages. You have control over the Push Messages settings, and can opt in or out of these Push Messages through the Honey Mobile App or through your mobile device’s operating system (with the possible exception of infrequent, important service announcements and administrative messages). Please check with your wireless service provider to determine what fees apply to your access to and use of the Honey Mobile App, including your receipt of Push Messages from Honey.

Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties
WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO INCLUDE A SECTION THAT IS IN ALL CAPS TO GET YOUR ATTENTION SO HERE IT GOES:
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE CONTENT AND ALL SERVICES AND PRODUCTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SERVICE OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE (WHETHER OR NOT SPONSORED) ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. HONEY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE CONTENT OR OPERATION OF THE SERVICE OR OF THE SERVICE. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
HONEY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE CONTENT ON THE SERVICE OR OF THE SERVICE (WHETHER OR NOT SPONSORED), AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. HONEY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE THAT THE CONTENT THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE IS FREE OF INFECTION FROM ANY VIRUSES OR OTHER CODE OR COMPUTER PROGRAMMING ROUTINES THAT CONTAIN CONTAMINATING OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES OR THAT ARE INTENDED TO DAMAGE, SURREPTITIOUSLY INTERCEPT OR EXPROPRIATE ANY SYSTEM, DATA OR PERSONAL INFORMATION. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THE ACCURACY OF ANY USER CONTENT THAT YOU PROVIDE, AND WE DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACCURACY OF SUCH CONTENT.
You understand and agree that any notifications provided to you through the Service may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. Honey does its best to provide notifications in a timely manner with accurate information. However, we neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the content of any notification. You also agree that Honey shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any notification; for any errors in the content of an notification; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third party in reliance on an notification.
Limitations on Honey's Liability
HERE WE GO AGAIN:
HONEY SHALL IN NO EVENT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, LIQUIDATED OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE OR BUSINESS, ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART FROM YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION OBTAINED ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, EVEN IF HONEY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, HONEY’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO $500.00 (FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS).
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 HONEY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THEREFORE, THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY CONTRACT.
Your Indemnification of Honey
You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Honey and its officers, directors, shareholders, and employees, from and against all claims and expenses, including but not limited to attorneys fees, in whole or in part arising out of or attributable to your use of the Service (including any purchases you make within the Honey Mobile App) or any breach of this Agreement by you or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party when using the Service.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Arbitration. YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, WE MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE RELIEF IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to 990 W 8th St, Suite 600, Los Angeles, CA 90017
As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER, YOU AND HONEY ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM THAT EACH SIDE MAY HAVE AGAINST THE OTHER INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Honey and you are an individual, you may opt out of this ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER by sending an email to email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the first date you access or use the Service. Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void.
