Terms of Service
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) were last updated on August 24, 2020.
AudioEye, Inc. (“AudioEye”, “us”, “our”, or “we”) offers various services (“Services”) and software (“Software” and, together with the Services, “Offerings”) to end users (“Users”) through this online platform (“Platform”).
These Terms are agreed to between AudioEye and you or, if you are accessing the Platform or using the Services on behalf of another individual, organization, or entity (“Entity”), that Entity (in either case, “you” or “your”).
These Terms are effective upon the date you first agree to these Terms by clicking “[I agree]” to these Terms or by accessing or using any Offering (the “Effective Date”). By accessing or using any Offering, or by clicking “[I agree]” to these Terms, you agree to enter into and be bound by these Terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE GENERAL TERMS, OR DO NOT MEET ANY OF THE QUALIFICATIONS INCLUDED IN THESE TERMS, AUDIOEYE IS NOT WILLING TO PROVIDE YOU WITH ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE PLATFORM OR ANY OFFERING AND YOU MUST NOT ACCESS OR USE THE PLATFORM OR ANY OFFERING.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of an Entity, by accessing or using any part of the Platform or any Offering, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind that Entity to these Terms. If you do not have such authority, or you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, do not access or use any part of the Platform or any Offering on behalf of such Entity.
THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION PROVISION, WHICH LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS TO BRING AN ACTION IN COURT AND HAVE DISPUTES DECIDED BY A JUDGE OR JURY, AND PROVISIONS THAT LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU.
Capitalized terms used in these Terms have the definitions given in the context in which they are used. All other terms used herein have the plain English (US) meaning.
Your access to and use of any Offerings made publicly available by AudioEye is subject to your compliance with these Terms. If You have placed or later place an order through the Platform seeking to access and use of any Offering (an “Order”), your access to and use of that Offering is also subject to that Order.
All Orders will be governed by the terms of these Terms. AudioEye will have no obligation or responsibility with respect to any Order until accepted by AudioEye. Acceptance of any Order is in AudioEye’s sole discretion. Once accepted by AudioEye, each Order will constitute a part of these Terms. Only the terms of each Order accepted by AudioEye will constitute a part of this Agreement and any terms contained in any other document that you may provide to AudioEye, including any other terms provided in connection with any Order, are void, of no force or effect, and will not be enforceable against or otherwise bind AudioEye. If there is a conflict between these Terms and the terms of any Order, these Terms will control unless the Order expressly indicates that it is intended to supersede the provisions of these Terms.
Unless you have entered into a separate written agreement with AudioEye expressly providing otherwise, these Terms and each Order together comprise the entire agreement between you and AudioEye with respect to the Platform and each Offering made available to you by or on behalf of AudioEye and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communication and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and AudioEye with respect to the Platform and each Offering.
If the Platform through which you are purchasing access to, accessing, or seeking to access an Offering is the [AudioEye Marketplace], then these Terms also apply to your access and use of the Platform.
If the Platform through which you are purchasing access to, accessing, seeking access to any Offering is a third party marketplace or platform, then the applicable terms and conditions provided by such third party (“Third Party Platform Terms”) apply to your access to and use of the Platform and these Terms apply only to your access to and use of the Offerings.
If there is a conflict between these Terms and any such Third Party Platform Terms, these Terms will control in all respects to your access to and use of any Offering and such Third Party Platform Terms will apply with respect to your access to and use of the Platform.
We reserve the right to make changes to these Terms or to the Platform or any Offering at any time, with or without prior notice, by making those modifications available to you or by providing notice to you as otherwise permitted herein. You are solely responsible for checking the Platform for any changes. Your continued use of the Platform and any Offering following any such changes to these Terms or to the Platform or any Offering constitutes your acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree with any changes, you may withhold your consent by not accessing the Platform or any Offering or by terminating these Terms as permitted herein. You agree that AudioEye and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including their respective directors, officers, members, employees and advisors, will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification of these Terms or the Platform or any Offering, suspension of your access to the Platform or any Offering, or discontinuance of the Platform or any Offering.
We can make necessary deployments of changes, updates or enhancements to the Services at any time. We may also add or remove functionalities or features, or we may suspend or stop the Services altogether.
We require that the Platform and the Offerings be accessed and used only by individuals who are not minors and who can legally enter into binding contracts with AudioEye under applicable Laws (typically persons 18 years of age or older, depending on the Laws applicable to you). By accessing or using the Platform or any Offering, you represent and warrant that you are not a minor and are legally permitted to enter into a binding contract, including these Terms, with AudioEye under applicable Law. We reserve the right to refuse to provide you access to the Platform or any Offering for any reason.

For any Third-Party Offering specifically indicated by AudioEye to be subject to the terms of a Third-Party Agreement, the terms of the applicable Third-Party Agreement will apply to the Third-Party Offering independent of the terms of this Agreement. All other Third-Party Offerings provided to you may be used only under these Terms.

Approval of your request to establish an Account will be at the sole discretion of AudioEye. Each Account and the user identification and password for each Account, including any private keys or other codes associated with or used to access each Account (the “Account ID”) is personal in nature. Each Account is for your personal use and each Account ID may be used only by you alone.

We also reserve the right to suspend or limit your access to the Platform or any Offering(s) for any reason or no reason in our sole discretion. During any such suspension, you may not access or use the Platform or any such Offering(s) or any related Content.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THROUGH MANDATORY ARBITRATION WITH A FAIR HEARING BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY OR THROUGH A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Arbitration Terms. You agree that any dispute or claim arising out of or in any way relating to these Terms or the Platform or any Offerings (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration as specified in this Section.
Arbitration Procedures. Before commencing arbitration you must first present any claim or dispute to us in writing to allow us the opportunity to resolve the dispute. If the claim or dispute is not resolved within 60 days, you may request arbitration by serving a completed Commercial Demand for Arbitration Form on us and the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“). You can contact the AAA at 800-778-7879 or www.adr.org. The arbitration shall be conducted by the AAA in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and, when deemed appropriate by the arbitrator, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, except as expressly set forth in these Terms. There shall be one arbitrator who will be a licensed attorney or a former judge and will have at least 10 years of legal experience in the resolution of commercial disputes. The arbitrator shall be chosen by written mutual agreement of the parties. If, after 7 days, you and we are unable to agree upon an arbitrator, the AAA will appoint the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the state of Arizona, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. All face-to-face proceedings shall take place in an agreed-upon location in Phoenix, Arizona.
Award. Arbitration is final and binding. In making any award, the arbitrator will be restricted by the “Limitation of Liability” provision in these Terms and will not have jurisdiction to make an award to any party to the arbitration contrary to the “Limitation of Liability” provision. You expressly agree that the rulings of the arbitrator, including any award, shall be binding, non-reviewable and non-appealable.
Confidentiality. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Any party shall have the right to prevent any actual or threatened breach of this confidentiality provision by temporary, preliminary or permanent injunctive or declaratory relief.
Costs of Arbitration. The party requesting arbitration must pay the applicable AAA filing fee. Each party shall pay its own expenses of the arbitration, including the expense of its own counsel, witnesses, and presentation of evidence at the arbitration. If any party files a judicial or administrative action asserting a claim that is subject to arbitration and another party successfully stays such action or compels arbitration, the party filing that action must pay the other party’s costs and expenses incurred in seeking such stay or compelling arbitration, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
Waiver of Jury and Class Action and Other Representative Proceeding.
THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THERE SHALL BE NO JURY TRIAL OR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, OR RIGHT TO ANY OTHER PROCEEDING TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE IN ANY COURT. THE PARTIES ALSO EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE IS PERSONAL TO THEM, AND ANY SUCH DISPUTE SHALL ONLY BE RESOLVED BY AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. NEITHER PARTY AGREES TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ARBITRATION WHERE A PERSON BRINGS A DISPUTE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS. NEITHER PARTY AGREES THAT A DISPUTE CAN BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OUTSIDE OF ARBITRATION, OR ON BEHALF OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A DISPUTE MAY ONLY BE RESOLVED THROUGH AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND SHALL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, A CLASS ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
