You may opt out of the binding individual arbitration and class action waiver as provided below. OVC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify or change these Terms at any time by posting the changes on or within the Application or other parts of the Service. The date of the most recent update will be displayed on the home page. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of such changes constitutes Your acceptance of the revised Terms. OVC may use reasonable commercial efforts to provide notice of material changes to You. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to You, Your only recourse is to discontinue Your use of the Service. You agree that OVC may change any part of the Service, including its content, at any time or discontinue the Service or any part thereof, for any reason, without notice to You and without liability.
3.0 Facebook® Disclaimer:
You agree and acknowledge, as condition of participating in the Service, that Facebook® (“Facebook”) does not sponsor, endorse, administer, and is in no way associated with, the Service. All questions regarding the Service must be directed to OVC, not Facebook. You also agree that as a condition of participating in the Service you shall release Facebook® from any and all liability arising out of your participation in the Service.
To use the Service, You must be a natural person, at least 18 years old, who is assigned to the e-mail address or Facebook Login (as defined below) associated with Your registration. At our sole discretion, we may require proof that You meet this condition in connection with Your use of the Service. Failure to comply with this condition will result in the closing of Your Account and the loss of all Virtual Items (including any alternate currency) (each as defined below) accumulated through Your use of the Service.
6.0 Account Information:
8.0 Virtual Items:
From time to time during Your use of the Service, You may have the opportunity to "earn”, "buy" or "purchase" (a) virtual in-game items; or (b) virtual in-game rewards, including but not limited to virtual alternate currencies, cash or points, all for use in the Service (together with virtual in-game items, "Virtual Items"). You do not in fact "own" the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real points or its equivalent. Rather, by "earning”, "buying”, or "purchasing” Virtual Items (whether through the use of Facebook Credits or an alternate currency), You are granted a limited license to use the software programs that manifest themselves as the Virtual Items. The purchase and sale, with Facebook Credits, of such limited licenses to use Virtual Items, is a completed transaction upon redemption of the applicable Facebook Credits and shall under no circumstances be refundable, transferable or exchangeable including, without limitation, upon termination of Your Account, termination of these Terms, and/or the discontinuation of the Service. OVC prohibits and does not recognize any purported transfers of Virtual Items effectuated outside of the Service, or the purported sale, gift or trade of anything that appears or originates in the Service, unless otherwise expressly authorized by OVC in writing. Accordingly, You may not sublicense, trade, sell or attempt to sell in-game Virtual Items for real money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a game. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void, and will subject Your Account to termination. You acknowledge and agree: (a) that OVC may change the price of Virtual Items at any time, without notice, for any reason or for no reason, (b) that the amount of virtual points necessary to obtain certain Virtual Items may fluctuate, and (c) that OVC has no liability to You for any changes in the price of such Virtual Items and/or the amount of virtual points necessary to obtain Virtual Items. OVC reserves the right, without prior notification, to limit the quantity of the Virtual Items You consent to OVC conducting analysis of Your activity for, amongst other things, suspected misuse of the Services. You can purchase and/or to refuse to allow You to purchase such Virtual Items. You acknowledge and agree that OVC shall have no liability for loss of Virtual Items due to any unauthorized third party activity, such as hacking, phishing, password mining, social engineering, and/or any other unauthorized third party activity. OVC may, but need not, replace such lost Virtual Items at its sole discretion on a case-by-case basis, without incurring any further obligation or liability. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, You agree that You have no right or title in or to any content that appears in the Service.
9.0 Alternate Currencies:
You may have the opportunity to accumulate "Alternate Currencies” through Your use of the Service. Alternate Currencies are virtual in-game points that You can use to "purchase” other Virtual Items within the Service. As with all Virtual Items, You do not in fact own the Alternate Currency You accumulate and the amounts of any Alternate Currency You accumulate do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Rather, by "earning”, "buying”, or "purchasing” Alternate Currency, You are merely granted a limited license to use the software programs that manifest themselves as the Alternate Currencies. In the event OVC encounters issues with the game that impact the accumulation of Alternate Currencies and/or the redemption of Rewards, OVC reserves the right to correct any such errors. If You participate in any of our Rewards Partners’ rewards programs, the Alternate Currency You accumulate through Your use of the Service may be exchanged for items, services or experiences (each a “Reward”) offered by such Rewards Partners through those programs. OVC may, but is not obligated to, permit You to transfer a certain portion of Alternate Currency from existing accounts with a Rewards Partner provided You have downloaded the OVC Service Application (the “App.”) OVC has the exclusive right, in its sole discretion, as to the quantity of Alternate Currency that may transferred, the terms of such transfer(s), and as to what Rewards Partner’s Alternate Currency may be eligible for any such transfer through the App. In addition, OVC may occasionally run promotions relative to such transfers. These promotion may differ and may not be available for all Rewards Partners.
9.1 Accumulating Alternate Currency:
You may accumulate Alternate Currency by taking certain actions while using the Services. For example, You may earn Alternate Currency by posting Your in-game achievements to your Facebook account, "liking” certain aspects of the Service, playing the games for a specified duration, or participating in certain in-game offers. The foregoing list is solely for purposes of example and explanation and is not meant to be exclusive or exhaustive. Alternate Currency is NOT and WILL NOT be awarded or earned in any way related to or based upon the outcome of any game You play during Your use of the Services. You may also receive Alternate Currency when you spin the "Daily Bonus Wheel” in the Application. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY to spin the Daily Bonus Wheel. The official rules for the Daily Bonus Wheel can be found at LINK url.
10.0 Using Alternate Currency:
You may exchange Your accumulated Alternate Currency for in-game Virtual Items in the Service. You may also exchange Your Alternate Currency for Rewards in the "Rewards” area of the Service. The first time you exchange Your Alternate Currency for Rewards, You will be asked to provide Your name and email address. The name you provide must match the name that appears on a government-issued photo identification belonging to the person who has accumulated the Alternate Currency through his/her use of the Service. The identification will be used by our Rewards Partners to verify Your eligibility. Once You have exchanged Alternate Currency for a Reward, You are said to have "purchased” that Reward. After purchasing Your Reward for Rewards that are accessed in the future, You may have a limited period of time in which complete by following a defined “Redemption Method.” Redeeming a Reward that has been purchased in the Service secures that Reward for your specific use at a particular time. When the redemption process is complete, You may then “use” the Reward. A Reward is considered “used” at the moment when it is consumed, e.g., when You check into a hotel room or when You use the Reward to acquire other goods and services. Rewards Partners may, at their discretion, place restrictions on the usage of the rewards they offer in the Service, e.g., a minimum age requirement, reward usage black-out dates, a limit as to the number and frequency of rewards that may be used within a specified period of time, and the requirement to participate in the partner’s own loyalty program, which may exists independently of the Service. Redemption of Rewards are subject to the terms and provisions of the Rewards provider, including limitations on redeeming Rewards if you self-limit or self-exclude with the Reward provider or any regulatory agency, including any gaming regulatory agencies. Because the Redemption Period, Redemption Method, and other terms of Rewards usage may vary, You must review the specific terms and conditions of each Reward You purchase with Your alternate currency. Here is a link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fpr14ciwbo3u904/AABXhb5IPGE7COqEV_Y-b67Ka?dl=0 to some, if not all, of Rewards Providers that issue gift cards. OVC is not responsible for the terms and conditions of the Rewards and bears no responsibility to You for any such unread, misread or misunderstood terms. The selection and availability of Rewards is subject to change without notice and OVC makes no guarantees as to the availability of any Reward.
11.0 Reward Cancellations or Expiration and Refunds:
Refunds or other accommodations for cancelled Rewards that You have purchased are subject to the Rewards Provider’s Refund policy. In the event of expiration of any Reward you have acquired, will be subject to the Rewards Provider’s applicable policy. In no circumstances, shall OVC be responsible for the refund or return of any Alternate Currency to you, or the provision of anything of any sort due to cancellation or expiration of any Reward.
12.0 Inactive Accounts:
If You do not use your Account by logging in using the Service at least once every 30 days, Your Account will be deemed inactive. You can, at any time, reactivate Your Account by logging in and using the Service. When an Account has been deemed inactive, OVC may, at its own discretion, expire any Alternate Currency accumulated by You. Once Your account is deemed inactive, any Rewards, which have been purchased but not yet redeemed, may also be expired at the discretion of OVC.
13.0 Third Party Providers of Goods and Services:

If You are a California resident, You waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." If You are a resident of any other jurisdiction that requires a similar waiver for the foregoing release to be enforceable, You hereby waive any applicable statutes of that jurisdiction.
OVC may terminate or suspend Your Account (including, but not limited to, suspending your ability to purchase, redeem, or consume Rewards) and/or Your access to Service (including, but not limited to, restricting your ability to use the Application) at any time, including for breach of these Terms or otherwise, without notice and without liability to You.

OVC conducts maintenance work on its system from time to time. A portion, or sometimes all, of the features of the Service will not be available during maintenance periods.
21.0 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration:
This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration provision (this "Provision”) facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and OVC. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Provision (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury. Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and OVC (as defined below, for this Provision) shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in court, before a judge or jury, and/or participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorneys' fees). For the purpose of this Provision, "OVC” means OVC and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term "Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and OVC regarding any aspect of your relationship with OVC, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). "Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced. YOU AND OVC EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. Because the Service and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
You or OVC must initiate arbitration in Chicago, Illinois.
You and OVC will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator's costs equally. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that You incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law.
21.02 Class Action Waiver:
Except as otherwise provided in this Provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both You and OVC specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If You choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of this Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you.
21.03 Jury Waiver:
You understand and agree that by entering into this agreement you and OVC are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Provision, You and OVC might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that You would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
This Provision shall survive the termination of Your service with OVC.

IN NO EVENT WILL THE OVC PARTIES' AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, ANY PART THEREOF, OR ANY CONTENT EXCEED FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500). THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN OVC AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to indemnify, save, and hold the OVC Parties harmless from any claims, losses, damages, liabilities, including legal fees and expenses, arising out of Your use or misuse of the Service, any violation by You of these Terms, any of Your User Content, or any breach of the representations, warranties, and covenants made by You herein.
