8.2 CANCELLATION POLICY. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SERVICES AT ANY TIME WITH 30 DAYS ADVANCE WRITTEN NOTICE, SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS. IN ORDER TO CANCEL, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN IN THE SERVICES. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELLING SERVICES MAY BE OBTAINED BY EMAIL REQUEST TO HELP@SMARTSEND.COM
8.3 Modification and Termination of Platform and Services. We may modify or terminate the Platform or the Services, your access to the Services, in part or as a whole, at any time, for any or no reason, and without notice or liability to you. You acknowledge that Company may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the Services, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Services that you are using on your mobile device or otherwise. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that these Terms will apply to all such upgrades. You agree that Company will not be liable to you for any such modifications.
8.4 Suspension or Termination. We may deny you access to all or part of the Platform at any time for any reason (including if you violate these Terms, as determined in our sole and absolute discretion) or no reason at all.
8.5 Effect of Termination. If you terminate your account, you will remain liable under these Terms for any outstanding fees accrued prior to termination. Such fees shall be due and payable within five (5) days from the date of termination. If we terminate your right to access the Platform, these Terms will terminate and all rights you have to access the Platform will immediately terminate. The following provisions will survive termination: 1.4 through 1.5, 1.9, 2.2, 2.3, 3.1, 4 through 6, 7.5, 8 and 9.
You and Company agree that any claim or controversy that arises between us relating in any way to any breach, enforcement, or termination of the Terms or your use of or access to the Platform or Service (each a “Covered Matter” and collectively, “Covered Matters”), will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section 9.
- Informal Resolution. If you have any dispute with Company, you and Company agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us at legal@com provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including the email address associated with your account, if your dispute relates to an account), and allow sixty (60) days to pass, during which Company will attempt to reach an amicable resolution of any issue with you.
- Applicable Law. You and Company agree that United States federal law including the Federal Arbitration Act, and (to the extent not inconsistent with or pre-empted by federal law) the laws of the State of Iowa, USA, without regard to conflict of laws principles, will govern all Covered Matters. Such body of law will apply regardless of your residence or the location of where you use the Company Services.
- Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. You and Company agree that these Terms and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Any Covered Matter must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (including the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, if applicable). You and Company further agree that:
- The arbitrator will utilize desk, phone, or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel.
- The arbitrator will not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals.
- The arbitrator, and not any federal, international, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable or a particular claim is subject to arbitration.
- The Arbitrator’s Award. You and Company agree that for matters where the relief sought is over $5,000, the arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. You and Company agree that the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.
- Exceptions To Our Agreement To Arbitrate Disputes. There are only two exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate:
- First, if either party reasonably believes that the other party has in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights of the other party, the party whose rights have been violated may seek injunctive or other appropriate interim relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- Second, each party will retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court within the United States for disputes or claims brought on an individual basis within the scope of the jurisdiction of such courts.
- Who Bears the Costs of Arbitration. You and Company agree that payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $5,000 or less, at your written request, Company will reimburse you for the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration following the earlier of the arbitrator’s decision or settlement, provided that you make your request no more than thirty (30) days following the earlier of such decision or settlement. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous or without merit, you agree that Company is relieved of its obligation to reimburse you for any fees associated with the arbitration.
- Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and Company agree that if Company makes any amendment to the agreement to arbitrate under this Section in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Company prior to the effective date of the amendment. However, the amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the agreement to arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and Company. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may close your account within thirty (30) days of the posting or notification of such amended terms and you will not be bound by the amended terms.
- Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless you and Company agree otherwise and except as described in Section 9(5)(b) (Small Claims Court), in the event that the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, or because you are an international User to which this agreement to arbitrate does not apply, you agree (except as otherwise provided by law) that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between You and Company must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Scott County, Iowa. You and Company agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Scott County, Iowa for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
- Arbitration Opt-Out Procedure. In order to opt-out, you must email your name, address (including your street address, city, state, and zip code), email address(es) associated with your account(s) to which the opt-out applies, and an unaltered digital image of your valid driver’s license to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 9. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of the Terms and this Section 9 will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with Company.
- YOU WAIVE CERTAIN RIGHTS. BY AGREEING TO THE TERMS, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE (i) TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED ABOVE), (ii) TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES, AND (iii) TO A TRIAL BY JURY EVEN IF ANY ARBITRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE TERMS.
10. GENERAL TERMS.
10.1 Force Majeure. Under no circumstances shall Company or its licensor or supplier be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from an event beyond its reasonable control.
10.2 No Waiver; Severability. No waiver of any term of these Terms will be binding unless in writing, no waiver of any term of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and the failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or remedy in these Terms does not waive that right or remedy. If an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be invalid, the parties agree that the court should endeavor to give effect, to the maximum extent permitted by law, to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
10.3 Miscellaneous. These Terms (and all policies, terms and conditions referenced herein) constitute the entire agreement between you and Company and govern your use of the Platform and Services provided by Company and supersede any prior agreements between you and Company on the subject matter.

A party’s failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege under these Terms will not waive its rights to exercise such right, power, or privilege in the future, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power, or privilege, or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege under these Terms.
