Welcome to the VIVIQ website. Throughout the website, the terms “VIVIQ”, “we”, “us”, and “our” refer to VIVIQ and any offerings, including information, products, and services that are made available from this website to any and all users of the site, including, without limitation, you, your organization on whose behalf you access the website, users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/or contributors of content (“you”), conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies, and notices stated here.
Please review these Terms of Service carefully before accessing or using our website.
1. Acceptance of Terms.
By visiting, accessing, or using any part of our website or by engaging in any communications or transactions which initiate through our website (“Services”), you represent that you are at least the age of the majority in your state or province of residence, and you agree to be legally bound by, and unconditionally accept, the following terms and conditions that govern your access to our Services (“Terms of Service”, “Terms”) including those additional terms, conditions, policies, and notices referenced herein by hyperlink. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access, use, or engage in any of our Services. If these Terms of Service are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms of Service.
A breach or violation of any of the Terms will result in an immediate termination of your Services.
2. Scope of Service.
We reserve the right to update, change, replace, suspend, or discontinue any part of these Terms of Service, in our sole discretion, at any time, for any reason, and without prior notice to you other than by posting the revised updates and/or changes to our Terms of Service to our website, which are effective upon posting. You may review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time on this page. You shall be responsible for checking this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of or access to the website following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
We shall not be responsible for any charges that you incur from your telecommunications carrier as a result of using our Services.
3. License to Use.
Subject to these Terms and any other agreement between you and us, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use our Services solely in the manner enabled by us. Your license to use our Services is automatically revoked if you violate these Terms. From time to time, we may upgrade our Services or make improvements to our Services without notice. You agree that these Terms will apply to any such upgrades or improvements. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of any of our Services or a sale of a copy of our Services, and we and our partners and suppliers retain all rights and interest in our Services. Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties, or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in these Terms, is void. We reserve all rights not expressly granted under these Terms.
As a registered user of our Services, you agree to receive e-mails from us regarding our offerings. We may, from time to time, send you e-mail messages with information about our Services or notifications which may provide news, alert you to certain new or changed offerings, or confirm certain transactions. You may opt-out from receiving our newsletter by e-mailing email@example.com or selecting to unsubscribe as may be provided in the applicable e-mail correspondence.
As set forth in Section 17, we reserve the right to alter, suspend or discontinue our Services or your access to our Services in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason, without notice.
5. Online Ordering.
We host our products on Shopify, Inc., which provides us the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products to you. You must be a registered user to use our online ordering function. Registration is available at no charge to persons who are eighteen (18) years of age and older and who can form legally-binding contracts on behalf of their organizations under applicable law. Sales of products through our Services are subject to our Terms and Conditions of Sale in addition to these Terms. You understand and agree that, except as otherwise provided in the Terms of Sale, all payments received by us in connection with your use of any Services are non-refundable.
6. Login Credentials.
In order to use some functionality of our Services, such as online ordering, you will be required to register by providing certain information. We may ask you to complete a registration form and create a username and password (“Login Credentials”). During any such registration, you are required to give truthful contact information (such as name and e-mail address) in accordance with these Terms. You are responsible for protecting your Login Credentials from unauthorized use, and you are responsible for all activity that occurs on your account (including without limitation financial obligations). You agree to notify us immediately if you believe that your Login Credentials have been or may be used without your permission so that appropriate action can be taken. We are not responsible for losses or damage caused by your failure to safeguard your Login Credentials.
We may enable you to login using a third-party social networking service. If we enable you to login using a third-party social networking service, the terms in the previous paragraph remain binding.

19. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution.
These Terms, and any dispute between you and us, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to principles of conflicts of law that would result in the application of the law of any other jurisdiction, except that the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration provisions set forth below. Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that Section 20 is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the State of New York, except that you or we are permitted (i) to bring small claims actions in state court in the county in which you reside if such court has a small claims procedure; (ii) to bring claims for injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction over the parties; or (iii) to seek enforcement of a judgment in any court having jurisdiction over the parties. To the extent permitted by law, you and we agree to waive trial by jury in any court proceeding.
20. Agreement to Arbitrate; Waiver of Class Action.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to the arbitration procedures described in this Section 20 (the “Arbitration Procedures”) (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against us prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Arbitration Procedures from these Terms, such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of these Terms not containing the Arbitration Procedures is posted to our website and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against us prior to the effective date of removal.
In accordance with Section 17, this arbitration section will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms in whole or in part to any third party without our consent. These Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties to these Terms and their respective successors, permitted transferees and permitted assigns. We and you are independent contractors and are not partners, joint venturers, agents, employees, or representatives of the other party. These Terms contain the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions and matters contemplated herein, supersede all previous communications, understandings and agreements (whether oral or written) other than any click-through or end user license agreement provided by us, and cannot be amended except by a writing signed by both parties or by our posting of an amended version of these Terms on our website. The headings and captions used in these Terms are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting these Terms. If any part of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
