1. Acceptance of this Agreement
The Fairiez provides an online marketplace connection, using web-based technology that connects you and other consumers, breweries, restaurants and/or other businesses and independent users who make deliveries (“Followers”). The Fairiez’s website software permits consumers to opt into a network of people who deliver goods from various breweries and businesses (the “Software”). Once a User opts in, The Fairiez software notifies Users that a delivery opportunity is available and the software facilitates completion of the delivery to the consumer. The Fairiez is not a restaurant, delivery service, brewerie, craft beer store, or food preparation business.
If you access any of our websites located at https://fairiez.com/, install or use our mobile application, install or use any other software supplied by The Fairiez, or access any information, function, or service available or enabled by The Fairiez (each, a “Service” and collectively, the “Services”), or complete the The Fairiez account registration process, you, your heirs, assigns, and successors (collectively, “you” or “your”) hereby represent and warrant that:
(a) you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this Agreement;
(b) you are of legal age in the jurisdiction in which you reside to form a binding contract with The Fairiez; and
(c) you have the authority to enter into the Agreement personally and, if applicable, on behalf of any organization on whose behalf you have created an account and to bind such organization to the Agreement.
The terms “User” and “Users” refer to all individuals and other persons who access or use the Services, including, without limitation, any organizations that register accounts or otherwise access or use the Services through their respective representatives. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if you do not agree to be bound by the Agreement, you may not access or use the Services.
Subject to Section 12(h) of this Agreement, The Fairiez reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement or its policies relating to the Software or Services at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version of this Agreement through the Services. You should regularly review this Agreement, as your continued use of the Services after any such changes constitutes your agreement to such changes.

5. Followers and Merchants Are Independent
You understand and agree that The Fairiez provides a technology platform connecting you with independent businesses and others that provide the products offered through the Services (“Merchants”), and independent third-party individuals who may deliver goods to you or other members of the community (“Followers”). You acknowledge and agree that The Fairiez does not itself manufacture or distribute alcohol or offer delivery services, and has no responsibility or liability for the acts or omissions of any Merchant or any Followers. The Fairiez is not the retailer of any products offered by Merchants, nor is it in the delivery business or a common carrier. The Fairiez will not assess or guarantee the suitability, legality or ability of any Followers or Merchant. You agree that The Fairiez is not responsible for the Merchants’ and does not verify Merchants’ compliance with applicable laws or regulations. The Fairiez has no responsibility or liability for acts or omissions by any Merchant or Followers.
6. User Account
You may be required to register for an account to use parts of the Services. You must provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process and at all other times when you use the Services, and to update the information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are the sole authorized user of any account you create through the Services. You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree that you shall monitor your account to prevent use by minors, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of your password or your account. You may not authorize others to use your User status, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your User account to any other person or entity. Should you suspect that any unauthorized party may be using your password or account, you will notify The Fairiez immediately. The Fairiez will not be liable and you may be liable for losses, damages, liability, expenses, and fees incurred by The Fairiez or a third party arising from someone else using your account, regardless of whether you have notified us of such unauthorized use. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or The Fairiez has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, The Fairiez has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). We may enable or require you to use a single pair of login credentials to use the The Fairiez services. You agree not to create an account or use the Services if you have been previously removed by The Fairiez, or if you have been previously banned from use of the Services.
7. User Content
(a) User Content. The Fairiez may provide you with interactive opportunities through the Services, including, by way of example, the ability to post User ratings and reviews (collectively, “User Content”). You represent and warrant that you are the owner of, or otherwise have the right to provide, all User Content that you submit, post and/or otherwise transmit through the Services. You hereby grant The Fairiez a perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, fully paid, royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully sublicenseable right and license to use, copy, display, publish, modify, remove, publicly perform, translate, create derivative works, distribute and/or otherwise use the User Content in connection with The Fairiez’s business and in all forms now known or hereafter invented (“Uses”), without notification to and/or approval by you. You further grant The Fairiez a license to use your username and/or other User profile information, including without limitation your ratings history, to attribute User Content to you in connection with such Uses, without notification or approval by you. You agree that this license includes the right for other Users to access and use your User Content in conjunction with participation in the Services and as permitted through the functionality of the Services. In the interest of clarity, the license granted to The Fairiez herein shall survive termination of the Services or your account. The Fairiez reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove or disable access to any User Content from the Services, suspend or terminate your account at any time, or pursue any other remedy or relief available under equity or law if you post any User Content that violates this Agreement or we consider to be objectionable for any reason. You agree that The Fairiez may monitor and/or delete your User Content (but does not assume the obligation) for any reason in The Fairiez’s sole discretion. The Fairiez may also access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as The Fairiez reasonably believes is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, (ii) enforce this Agreement, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, (iv) respond to User support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of The Fairiez, its users and the public.

You agree that any submission of any ideas, suggestions, and/or proposals to The Fairiez through its suggestion, feedback, wiki, forum or similar pages (“Feedback”) is at your own risk and that The Fairiez has no obligations (including without limitation, obligations of confidentiality) with respect to such Feedback. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to submit the Feedback and you hereby grant to The Fairiez a perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, fully paid, royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully sublicenseable right and license to use, copy, display, publish, modify, remove, publicly perform, translate, create derivative works, distribute and/or otherwise use such Feedback.
(c) Ratings and Reviews. To the extent that you are asked to rate and post reviews of Merchants or other businesses (“Ratings” and “Reviews”), such Ratings and Reviews are considered User Content and are governed by this Agreement. Ratings and Reviews are not endorsed by The Fairiez and do not represent the views of The Fairiez or its affiliates. The Fairiez shall have no liability for Ratings and Reviews or for any claims for economic loss resulting from such Ratings and Reviews. Because we strive to maintain a high level of integrity with respect to Ratings and Reviews posted or otherwise made available through the Services, you agree that: (i) you will base any Rating or Review on first-hand experience with the Merchant or business; (ii) you will not provide a Rating or Review for any Merchant or business for which you have an ownership interest, employment relationship or other affiliation or for any of that company’s competitors; (iii) you will not submit a Rating or Review in exchange for payment, free food items, or other benefits from a Merchant or business; and (iv) your review will comply with the terms of this Agreement. If we determine, in our sole discretion, that any Rating or Review could diminish the integrity of the Ratings and Reviews or otherwise violates this Agreement, we may remove such User Content without notice.
8. Communications with The Fairiez

In those situations, The Fairiez reserves the right to charge your payment method the final price after checkout. You are liable for all transaction taxes on the Services provided under this Agreement (other than taxes based on The Fairiez’s income). Payment will be processed by The Fairiez, using the preferred payment method designated in your account.

The Fairiez reserves the right to modify or cancel an offer at any time.
(d) Fees for Services. The Fairiez may change the fees for our Services as we deem necessary or appropriate for our business. The Fairiez may also charge merchants fees on orders that you place through the services, including commissions and other fees, and may change those merchant fees as we deem necessary or appropriate for our business or to comply with applicable law.
12. Dispute Resolution.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH THE FAIRIEZ AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF. THIS SECTION 12 OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE REFERRED TO AS THE “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”.
(a) Scope of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Services as a consumer of our Services, to any advertising or marketing communications regarding The Fairiez or the Services, to any products or services sold or distributed through the Services that you received as a consumer of our Services, or to any aspect of your relationship or transactions with The Fairiez as a consumer of our Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or The Fairiez may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement.
CASES MAY BE FILED AGAINST THE FAIRIEZ THAT ATTEMPT TO ASSERT CLASS ACTION CLAIMS, AND BY ACCEPTING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT YOU ELECT NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH CASES.
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH THE FAIRIEZ, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY SUCH CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE LAWSUIT. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST THE FAIRIEZ IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR.
(b) Arbitration Rules and Forum. This Arbitration Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act in all respects. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Bienstock Law, LLC, at 401 East Jefferson Street, Suite 208, Rockville, MD 20850. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its rules and pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com (under the Rules/Clauses tab) or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitration fees will be governed by JAMS’s rules. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver of fees from JAMS, The Fairiez will pay them for you. In addition, The Fairiez will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims with an amount in controversy totaling less than $10,000. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, video conference, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
(c) Arbitrator Powers. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and The Fairiez. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other proceedings or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and this Agreement (including this Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator will issue a written statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which any award (or decision not to render an award) is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator shall follow the applicable law. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding on you and The Fairiez.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND THE FAIRIEZ WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND RECEIVE A JUDGE OR JURY TRIAL. You and The Fairiez are instead electing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration, except as specified in section 12(a) above. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.
(e) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU AND THE FAIRIEZ AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO RESOLVE CLAIMS WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute, neither you nor The Fairiez is entitled to arbitration of such claim or dispute. Instead, all such claims and disputes will then be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 20.
(f) Opt Out. You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you do so, neither you nor The Fairiez can force the other to arbitrate as a result of this Agreement. To opt out, you must notify The Fairiez in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your The Fairiez username (if any), the email address you used to set up your The Fairiez account (if you have one), and a CLEAR statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. You must send your opt-out notice to:[email protected] If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may have entered into with us or may enter into in the future with us. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL SUPERSEDE, AMEND, OR MODIFY THE TERMS OF ANY SEPARATE AGREEMENT(S) BETWEEN YOU AND THE FAIRIEZ RELATING TO YOUR WORK AS AN EMPLOYEE OR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT GOVERNING YOUR SERVICES AS A CONTRACTOR. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, IF YOU ARE A CONTRACTOR, OPTING-OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 12 HAS NO AFFECT ON YOUR AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES COVERED BY YOUR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT WITH THE FAIRIEZ.
(g) Survival. This Arbitration Agreement will survive any termination of your relationship with The Fairiez.
(h) Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if The Fairiez makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to The Fairiez.
13. Third-Party Interactions.
(a) Third-Party Websites, Applications and Advertisements. The Services may contain links to third-party websites (“Third-Party Websites”) and applications (“Third-Party Applications”) and advertisements (“Third-Party Advertisements”) (collectively, “Third-Party Websites & Advertisements”). When you click on a link to a Third-Party Website, Third-Party Application or Third-Party Advertisement, The Fairiez will not warn you that you have left The Fairiez’s Website or Services and will not warn you that you are subject to the terms and conditions (including privacy policies) of another website or destination. Such Third-Party Websites & Advertisements are not under the control of The Fairiez. The Fairiez is not responsible for any Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications or any Third-Party Advertisements. The Fairiez does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to such Third-Party Websites & Advertisements, or their products or services. You use all links in Third-Party Websites & Advertisements at your own risk. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices of any Third-Party Websites or Third-Party Applications, and make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
14. Social Media Guidelines.
The Fairiez maintains certain social media pages for the benefit of the The Fairiez community. By posting, commenting, or otherwise interacting with these pages, you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct.
15. Transactions Involving Alcohol
You may have the opportunity to participate in an alcohol exchange or have the option to request delivery of alcohol products in some locations and from certain Merchants or other Users/Followers. If you receive your delivery in the United States, you agree that you will only order alcohol products or participate in the alcohol exchange, if you are 21 years of age or older. If you receive your delivery in another country, you agree that you will only order alcohol products or participate in the alcohol exchange if you are of legal age to purchase alcohol products in the relevant jurisdiction. You also agree that, upon delivery of alcohol products, you will provide valid government-issued identification proving your age to the Follower delivering the alcohol products and that the recipient will not be intoxicated when receiving delivery of such products. If you order alcohol products or participate in the alcohol exchange, you understand and acknowledge that neither The Fairiez nor the Follower can accept your order of alcohol products, and the order will only be delivered if the Merchant accepts your order. The Follower reserves the right to refuse delivery if you are not 21 years old, if you cannot provide a valid government issued ID, if the name on your ID does not match the name on your order, or you are visibly intoxicated. Followers or any person participating in the alcohol exchange agree not to deliver or exchange any alcohol with anyone who is not of legal age to purchase alcohol products in the relevant jurisdiction. Further, Followers shall ensure that the alcohol products delivered or exchanged end up in the hands of the person they are delivering or exchanging too. Followers shall be solely liable for any violation of this policy.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless The Fairiez and its officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates (each, an “Indemnified Party”), from and against any losses, claims, actions, costs, damages, penalties, fines and expenses, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and expenses, that may be incurred by an Indemnified Party arising out of, relating to or resulting from (a) your User Content; (b) your misuse of the Software or Services; (c) your breach of this Agreement or any representation, warranty or covenant in this Agreement; or (d) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations through or related to the use of the Software or Services; or (e) your violation of any law, rule, or regulation with regard to your participation in the alcohol exchange or delivery of alcohol. In the event of any claim, allegation, suit or proceeding alleging any matter potentially covered by the agreements in this section, you agree to pay for the defense of the Indemnified Party, including reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by the Indemnified Party. The Fairiez reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with The Fairiez in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any Indemnified Party for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party, or for such party’s negligence, fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Software or Services, or your participation in the alcohol exchange or delivery of alcohol. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your account, this Agreement, or your access to the Software and/or Services.
17. Disclaimer of Warranties
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF LAW, YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES AND PARTICIPATION IN ANY ALCOHOL EXCHANGE OR DELIVERY IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

18. Internet Delays
19. Breach And Limitation of Liability

You understand and agree to the limitations on remedies and liabilities set forth in this Section 19 to keep the Software and Services simple and efficient, and costs low, for all users.
(b) Cap on Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW THE FAIRIEZ’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY AND/OR DUE FROM YOU TO THE FAIRIEZ IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. THIS CAP ON LIABILITY SHALL APPLY FULLY TO RESIDENTS OF NEW JERSEY.
(c) Disclaimer of Certain Damages. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF LAW THE FAIRIEZ SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR KIND (INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURY, LOST PROFITS, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, AND LOSS OF DATA, REVENUE, USE AND ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE). THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER OF PUNITIVE AND EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, AND THE ENTIRE DISCLAIMER OF DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR FOR ANY INJURY CAUSED BY THE FAIRIEZ’S FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION, SHALL NOT APPLY TO USERS WHO RESIDE IN THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY.
20. Exclusive Venue
To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in a court, both you and The Fairiez agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to the Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Montgomery County, Maryland.
If you violate this Agreement, The Fairiez may respond based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the egregiousness of your actions and whether a pattern of harmful behavior exists.
In addition, at its sole discretion, The Fairiez may modify or discontinue the Software or Service, or may modify, suspend or terminate your access to the Software or the Services, for any reason, with or without notice to you and without liability to you or any third party. In addition to suspending or terminating your access to the Software or the Service, The Fairiez reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal or injunctive redress. Even after your right to use the Software or the Services is terminated, this Agreement will remain enforceable against you. All provisions which by their nature should survive to give effect to those provisions shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
22. Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement.
It is The Fairiez’s policy to terminate membership privileges of any User who repeatedly infringes copyright upon prompt notification to The Fairiez by the copyright owner or the copyright owner’s legal agent. Without limiting the foregoing, if you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our Copyright Agent with the following information: (a) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; (b) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (c) a description of the location on the Services of the material that you claim is infringing; (d) your address, telephone number and e-mail address; (e) a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
(a) No Joint Venture or Partnership. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, The Fairiez or any third party provider as a result of this Agreement or use of the Software or Services.
(b) Choice of Law. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Maryland, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of any other jurisdiction.

(f) Notice. Where The Fairiez requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing The Fairiez with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to The Fairiez is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by this Agreement, The Fairiez’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to The Fairiez by e-mailing us at [email protected] Such notice shall be deemed given on the next business day after such e-mail is actually received by The Fairiez.

You agree to keep your contact information, including email address, current. This subparagraph does not affect your statutory rights.
(h) Transfer and Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by The Fairiez without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. This Agreement binds and inures to the benefit of each party and the party’s successors and permitted assigns.
(i) Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
