The Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, excluding its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration in Boston, Massachusetts using the English language, in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc.

Localytics has many systems in place to ensure that the Service is operational, but we cannot guarantee that it will always be accessible, timely or accurate. You agree that under no circumstances will Localytics be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from acts of nature, forces, or causes beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to: Internet failures, computer equipment failures, telecommunications equipment failures, other equipment failures, electrical power failures, strikes, labor disputes, riots, insurrections, terrorism, civil disturbances, shortages of labor or materials, fires, floods, storms, explosions, acts of God, war, governmental actions, orders of domestic or foreign courts or tribunals, non-performance of third parties or failures of third party applications, hacks or denial of service attacks, or loss of or fluctuations in heat, light or air conditioning.
Integration and Severability
The Terms of Service are the entire agreement between you and Localytics with respect to the Sites and the Service and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and Localytics with respect to the Sites and the Service. If any provision of the Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
The Terms of Service are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with the prior written consent of Localytics. Localytics may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without consent. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the Terms of Service and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under the Terms of Service, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. Unless otherwise expressly stated herein, all notices under the Terms of Service will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, postage pre-paid, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service.
