As part of your participation in the Program, Lightout will provide you with certain hardware, including but not limited to digital screens that will be installed on the roof of your vehicle and that will display the Advertising (the “Equipment”). Lightout contractors will install the Equipment on your vehicle. You agree that you will not make any modifications to the Equipment that is not explicitly authorized by Lightout in writing. Further, you understand and agree that the Equipment contains tracking mechanisms that gives Lightout the ability to track your vehicle and determine the geographic location of the Equipment.

You understand that Lightout will own and retain title to any and all of the Equipment that is given to you pursuant to your participation in the Program. You agree that the Equipment is not and will not be subject to any lien, encumbrance, mortgage or deed of trust, or any other such interest originating from or through you, and you acknowledge that the Equipment is the personal property of Lightout.
You agree to use all reasonable efforts to protect the Equipment from damage, and agree to keep the Equipment in good condition and abide by all instructions provided to you by Lightout. You understand that, other than in an emergency situation, you cannot remove the Equipment from your vehicle. You agree not to use the Equipment for any other purpose other than as described in these Terms.

You understand that only you may operate your vehicle and while the Equipment display is turned on. You will not be responsible for damages to the Equipment unless the damage is a result of your intentional or reckless actions, or if the damage was caused as a result of your non-compliance with these Terms, as determined in Lightout's sole discretion.

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
YOU AGREE THAT IF YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM AND USE THE SERVICE, YOU ARE DOING SO VOLUNTARILY AND UNDERSTAND THAT LIGHTOUT CANNOT AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY. YOU ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS WITHOUT LIMITATION.
WE ARE MAKING THE SERVICE AND PROGRAM AVAILABLE “AS IS” AND, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE SERVICE AND PROGRAM, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. YOU ASSUME THE RISK OF ANY AND ALL DAMAGE OR LOSS FROM USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE OR PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT OPERATION OF THE SERVICE AND PROGRAM WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR LOST DATA, REGARDLESS OF THE FORESEEABILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: ANY CLAIM RELATED TO PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICE AND PARTICIPATION OF THE PROGRAM; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE OR PROGRAM; ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF DATA; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY INTERACTION WITH EQUIPMENT; AND ANY VIOLATIONS OF APPLICABLE LAWS, RULES, REGULATIONS, AND OTHER AGREEMENTS. THIS LIMITATION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY OR FORM OF ACTION.
IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).
THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND US.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES OR CAUSES OF ACTION, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
In the event that any third party brings a claim against us related to your participation in the Program, or your actions, information, or any other use of the Service by you, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our agents harmless from and against any and all third-party claims, losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) relating to such claim. We will notify you promptly of any such claim and will provide you with reasonable assistance, at your expense, in defending any such claim, provided, however, that our failure to so notify you shall not relieve you of your indemnity obligations, but instead shall reduce those obligations by the amount of damages or increased costs and expenses attributable to our failure to give notice. We reserve the right to approve counsel retained by you, to take control of the defense (at our expense) of any claim for which indemnity is required, and to participate in the defense of any claim (at our expense) for which indemnity is required. You may not settle any claim without our prior consent.
You understand and agree that you participate in the Program as an independent contractor. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you are not authorized to bind Lightout to any liability or obligation or to represent that Lightout authority to do so. You will indemnify and hold Lightout harmless to the extent of any obligation imposed on Lightout resulting from a determination that you are not an independent contractor.
You agree to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy with Lightout arising out of or relating to your use in any way of the Service or your participation in the Program in the following manner. First, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute informally by contacting each other by email (you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Second, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through mediation administered by JAMS, which shall take place in San Francisco County, California, USA, and the costs of which shall be divided equally between you and Lightout. Third, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution and mediation, we both agree to participate in binding arbitration administered by JAMS, which shall take place in San Francisco County, California, USA.
Either you or we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief without first engaging in the dispute resolution process described above.
We both agree that, in the event of arbitration, or in the event of a lawsuit as permitted by this Section or otherwise, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees). Arbitration pursuant to this Section shall be confidential, and neither you, nor Lightout, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration clause to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general). If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
YOU AND LIGHTOUT EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
Nothing contained in this Section shall limit our ability to take action related to your access to the Service as provided in these Terms.
By participating in the Program, you consent to receiving certain electronic communications from us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that those communications be in writing.
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. In the event that a lawsuit is filed where permitted under the provisions above, or in the event that the provisions above are found not to apply to you or to a given dispute, we both agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, USA. Both you and we consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
If, for whatever reason, any term or condition in these Terms is found unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. The failure to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so later, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
Lightout reserves the right to change these Terms from time to time, with or without notice to you. If you continue to use the Service, you consent to the new Terms. Any changes to these Terms will become effective on the “Effective Date” indicated above. If you continue to use the Service after the Effective Date, you consent to the new Terms. Lightout will always have the latest Terms posted on the Service.
You may choose to provide us with feedback and comments regarding ways that you think we can improve the Service and/or Program (the “Feedback”). If you provide us with Feedback, you hereby grant Lightout an unrestricted, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free right to exploit the Feedback in any manner and for any purpose, including to improve the Program and Service and create new products and services.
