Dispute Resolution; Arbitration.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH KLG AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and KLG (a) waive your and KLG respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to this Agreement or the Services resolved in a court, and (b) waive your and KLG’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and KLG will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
Any Dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Services is personal to you and KLG, and will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
Each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to KLG will be sent by e-mail to KLG at hello@KLG.com. Notice to you will be by email to the then-current email address in your Account. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, email address and telephone number, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and KLG cannot agree on how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or KLG may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 17, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 17.1, file a claim in court.
Any arbitration will occur in Spain. Arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference. The state and federal courts located in Spain will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county where you reside if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court. This Agreement and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understood the rules of JAMS, or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
Governing Law and Venue.
This Agreement and your access to and use of the Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Spain, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Spain any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties arising out or relating to this Agreement that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the courts of the Spain.
If any term, clause or provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of this Agreement.
Termination or Suspension.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement or suspend your right to access the Services. You may terminate this Agreement without notice by discontinuing use of the Services. All rights and licenses granted to you under this Agreement will immediately be revoked upon our termination of the Agreement or our suspension of your access to the Services, and you must immediately submit payment for any fees payable to KLG under the Agreement (as specified in the Storage Terms). KLG users can pay for a lifetime plan. A lifetime plan is in effect for the duration of the account owner or 99 years, whichever is shorter. Lifetime accounts do not come with a standard 30 day money-back guarantee, which covers the rest of our plans. If a user loses access to his or her lifetime account, that lifetime account will be deemed as lost. KLG might sometimes offer “infinite” or “unlimited” lifetime memberships. These memberships are regulated under a fair-use policy. KLG reserves the right to prevent or stop any customer’s use of KLG services that appears to be abusive or is unduly burdensome. For more information on how this policy applies to your service plan, please contact us.
We reserve the right to change the terms of this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. If we make changes to the Agreement, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by posting the revised Agreement terms to the Services and updating the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms and the Storage Terms. Your continued use of the Services will confirm your acceptance of the revised Agreement. If you do not agree to the modified Agreement, you must stop using the Services.
(a) KLG will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the following service level commitment: except for scheduled maintenance, our Services will be available 99.99% of the time. We calculate availability based upon the service records we maintain. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you in advance of any scheduled maintenance.
(b) Our SLA obligations do not extend to any unavailability of the Services that is caused by: (i) any hardware or software that you use in connection with the Services; (ii) misuse of our Services or the Platform, including use in breach of the Agreement or use other than in accordance with any documentation or ther instructions provided by KLG; (iii) circumstances or events beyond the reasonable control of KLG; or (iv) our suspension or termination of your access to the Services pursuant to the rights we have reserved under the Agreement.
The Storage Services enable you to store data and other materials (“Storage Materials”) via a distributed network of third-party devices (“Storage Nodes”) that comprise the Storage Platform. The Storage Platform is an interconnected set of Storage Nodes that independently operate open-source software to facilitate the storage of your Storage Materials. Users acting as Storage Nodes acknowledge that they must comply with EU GDPR Privacy Law. The Storage Services are designed to encrypt Storage Materials locally on your device and then facilitate the distribution of such encrypted data fragments to the Storage Nodes. The Storage Platform and Storage Nodes are not operated or maintained by KLG, and KLG has no responsibility or liability for the Storage Platform or Storage Nodes. The Storage Services enable you to protect against loss of your Storage Materials due to the failure of any individual Storage Node by allowing you to configure the redundancy and distribution of your Storage Materials. You are solely responsible for your use of the Storage Platform, including for configurations that you deem appropriate to maintain access to your Storage Materials in a manner that meets your expectations. In order to use the Storage Services, you will need to register for an account (“Account”). In connection with your creation of any Account, you will (i) provide accurate, current and complete Account information, (ii) maintain and promptly update your Account information as necessary, (iii) maintain the security of your Account, including by not using the same password for the Storage Services that you use for third-party services, (iv) not disclose your password or private keys to any third party, and (v) immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any unauthorized activities in connection with your Account or the Storage Services. You acknowledge and agree that if you lose your password, you may not be able to recover any Storage Materials. One same person cannot hold various free KLG accounts. KLG offers a referral program where users can earn €5 worth of credit that can be used inside KLG’s platform. By referring a friend to join KLG, both parties can earn €5. The person you refer must be an active KLG user, and can sign up in any of KLG’s plans. KLG reserves the right to review referrals and disqualify any referrals that haven’t been active in the platform. A single user can earn a maximum of €100 worth of referral credit.
(a) KLG will not be responsible for any loss, misuse, or deletion of Storage Materials or any failure of any Storage Materials to be stored or encrypted. You are solely responsible for backing up any Storage Materials.
(a) We will provide notice via the Services of the fees applicable to use of the Services (‘Fees’). All Fees are exclusive of any applicable taxes unless stated otherwise, which are your sole responsibility. We will provide notice at least 30 days in advance of any increase to the Fees.
(b) Except where otherwise indicated via the Services, we will charge all Fees to a payment method designated by you via the Services that is acceptable to us. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the payment method you designate via the Services and authorize us to charge all Fees to that method. If your payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your right to use the Services may be suspended automatically. Fees will be charged on a monthly basis based on the prior month’s usage. You can avoid incurring Fees at any time by discontinuing your use of the Services to store your Materials.
(c) Users with a free account who do not log in to their account for a period of one year will be considered inactive. Users will receive an email notice 7 days prior to reaching inactive status. Once a free account reaches that status, its files will be removed from the network in order to free up space for those free users who are actively using their account.
(d) Accounts on any of our premium plans who fail to renew their plan within a period of 7 days will be terminated.
(e) All users who buy any of KLG’s premium plans will be eligible for a 30 day refund, unless they already receive a 30 day trial period of any of KLG’s premium plan. After those first 30 days using any of our premium plans have passed, no refund will be applicable. To request a refund, you should reach out to us via email, at hello@KLG.com.
(f) Storage Nodes agree to let KLG generate invoices on their behalf, so that both parties can legally justify the payment KLG sends to Storage Nodes every month. The invoice will be issued by the Storage Nodes (with the personal details he specifies at sign up), to KLG. Storage Nodes can contact us and request those invoices at any time.
Effect of Suspension or Termination.
If your access to the Storage Services is suspended or terminated, you will no longer have access to the Storage Materials processed via the Storage Services for storage in the Storage Platform, and our Storage Materials may not be recoverable. If we terminate or suspend your access to the Storage Services for reasons other than your breach of the Agreement, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide you an opportunity to retrieve your Storage Materials via the Storage Services. We will terminate any free accounts that have no activity for one year (this includes any account that has not uploaded, downloaded, shared or modified a file in a period of one year). We will also terminate accounts under any of our paid plans, that fail to renew their plan after 7 days from the payment renewal deadline. Appropriate notice will be given to the user to try to avoid account termination.
The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and KLG relating to your access to and use of our Services. We may assign our rights and obligations under the Agreement. The failure of KLG to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under the Agreement where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control. Except as otherwise provided in herein, the Agreement is intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
