This Agreement (the “Agreement”) is a binding legal agreement between Vampr, Inc., a Californian corporation (“Vampr”, “we”, “us” or “our”), and the person (“you” “your”) being a registrant on the Vampr App (“the Vampr App”) and additionally a subscriber to the premium Vampr App service (“Vampr Pro”) and applies to your use of services available to subscribers to a Vampr Pro Plan (“the Vampr Pro Account Services”).
This Agreement addresses certain additional rights and obligations associated with your use of Vampr Pro, your Vampr Pro Plan and the Vampr Pro Account Services.
(a) You must accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement before activating your Vampr Pro Plan, accessing or using the Vampr Pro Account Services. Your completing purchase of Vampr Pro presented to you on the App Store indicates your acknowledgment that you have read, understand and accept this Agreement. If you do not accept this Agreement, you may not access or use any of the Services designated by Vampr for subscribers to a Vampr Pro Plan.
(b) Vampr may modify this Agreement from time to time by posting the modified version on the Vampr website and/or the Vampr App. Our right to modify this Agreement includes the right to add, remove or amend the terms hereof. When this Agreement is modified, we will also modify the “Effective as of” date set forth at the beginning of this Agreement.
(i) If and when we modify this Agreement, we will send you Notice, pursuant to Section 12, below, of such modification at least five (5) calendar days prior to its effective date. If you do not accept any modification we have made, your only recourse is to terminate your subscription to Vampr Pro as provided in Section 2(e), below, within five (5) days of our having sent you Notice of such modification.
(ii) Your failure to terminate your subscription to Vampr Pro pursuant to Section 1(b)(i), above, and as provided in Section 2(e), below, or your participation in any Vampr Pro Account Services that are limited exclusively to subscribers of Vampr Pro after the “Effective as of” date of any modification we may make to this Agreement, constitutes your agreement to be bound by all such modifications.
(a) Subject to the provisions of Sections 2(b) and 2(c), below, the term of this Agreement shall commence on the date you purchase Vampr Pro and shall remain in full force and effect during the Subscription Term, or until terminated. This Agreement will automatically renew at the end of each Subscription Term for another Subscription Term of the same length unless you terminate your Vampr Pro account prior to the end of such Subscription Term. The Subscription Fees applicable to such renewal shall be set at Vampr’s then-current rate for Subscription Fees applicable to the then level of your Vampr Pro subscription with Subscription Fees charged unless and until you terminate your subscription to Vampr Pro. You may terminate your subscription to Vampr Pro, at any time, for any reason, in the manner provided in Section 2(e), below.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, and without limiting Vampr’s other rights and remedies set forth in this Agreement, Vampr reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability, to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to or use of all or any part of Vampr Pro and/or to take technical and/or legal steps to prevent you from accessing and/or using the Vampr Pro Account Services. In no event shall Vampr be liable to you or to any third party should Vampr exercise this right from time to time.
(c) Upon any termination or expiration of your subscription to Vampr Pro whether pursuant to Section 1(b)(i), 2(a) or 2(b), above, you will no longer have access to or the benefit of the features available exclusively to Vampr Pro subscribers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, upon expiration or termination of your subscription to Vampr Pro, Vampr may remove your Music Tracks from any monetization opportunity that is exclusively reserved for Vampr Pro subscribers (and you shall not be eligible for Fees applicable to Vampr Pro subscribers for any monetization opportunity, either prior to or after the time of such expiration or termination); provided, however, that your Music Track(s) may, nonetheless, continue to be available for participation in services that are not limited to subscribers to the Vampr Pro Account Services.
(d) No termination of your subscription to Vampr Pro pursuant to this provision shall affect any license for your Content, including, without limitation, your Music Tracks, issued through or by means of any applicable Vampr Agreement and that commenced prior to such termination.
(e) To terminate your subscription to the Vampr Pro Account Services, you must complete the process to manage your subscription via the point of purchase (for example, the App Store).
(f) In the event that you terminate your subscription to Vampr Pro your account will transition back to a non-premium registration with the Vampr App unless you act to delete that registration by following the instructions in “Settings” in the Service. Vampr will transition your account to non-premium registration by modifying your Content according to Vampr policies and procedures and you hereby give permission for Vampr to make those modifications to your account acknowledging that you may then operate and modify your non-premium account in accordance with the Vampr Terms & Conditions applicable to non-premium registrations.
(g) Your and our rights and obligations set forth in Sections 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, and 16, and any right or obligation either you or we have in this Agreement which, by its express terms or nature and context is intended to survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, shall survive any such termination or expiration.
The subscription plan for Vampr Pro you select for purchase (“Vampr Pro Plan”) and the terms and conditions of this Agreement define the features of Vampr Pro that you may access and use and the applicable fees (“Subscription Fees”) for your Vampr Pro Plan. Your subscription to Vampr Pro and the Services applicable to that subscription may be chosen by you as a monthly, six-monthly or annual subscription or for such other period as Vampr may designate (each, a “Subscription Term”).

PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. You agree that any claim or dispute that may arise between you and Vampr with respect to this Agreement will be resolved in accordance with this Clause 11.
(a) Applicable Law. You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or pre-empted by federal law, this Agreement and any claim or dispute that may arise between you and any Related Party under it shall be construed under the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
(b) Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Vampr agree that any and all claims and disputes arising between us pursuant to this Agreement and your use of the Vampr App, subscription to a Vampr Pro Plan or the Vampr Pro Account Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration. Alternatively, you may assert your claims and disputes in small claims court, if the claim or dispute so qualifies, so long as the claim or dispute remains in small claim court and advances on an individual (non-class) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern this agreement to arbitrate.
(i) Class and Representative Actions Prohibited. You and Vampr agree that each of us (or any other Related Party) may bring claims and disputes against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and Vampr agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s or entity’s claims or disputes or preside over a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award relief only to the individual bringing the action and any relief awarded may not affect other Vampr users.
(ii) Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable) as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. The AAA’s rules shall govern the number of arbitrators assigned to conduct the arbitration. The party intending to seek arbitration shall send to the other, by certified mail, notice of the dispute. Such notice should be sent to Vampr, Inc., 3110 Main St, Building C, Santa Monica, 90405, CA, USA, Attn: Legal. Vampr shall send any notice to you at the email address on file associated with your Vampr Pro Account. If you and Vampr are unable to resolve any of the claims or disputes described in such notice within 30 days after such notice is received, either party may initiate arbitration proceedings. The form for initiating arbitration is available at www.adr.org, and the party initiating arbitration must both file this form with the AAA and mail a copy of the completed form to the other party at the same addresses as set forth earlier in this paragraph. Any settlement offer made by you or Vampr shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. The arbitration hearing shall be held in a mutually agreed location. The arbitrator’s award shall be consistent with this Agreement and final and binding, and judgment shall be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees shall be governed by AAA’s rules.
(iii) Invalidity. With the exception of Section 11(b)(i) above (“Class and Representative Actions Prohibited”), if an arbitrator or court decides that any portion of this Clause 11 is invalid or unenforceable, all other portions of this Clause 11 shall continue to apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that Clause11(b)(i) is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Clause 11(b) and its subparts shall be null and void, but the rest of this Clause 11 shall continue to apply.
(iv) Opt-Out Procedure. If you are a new Vampr user, you can opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate by mailing a written opt-out notice postmarked no later than 30 days after the date you accept the terms of this Agreement for the first time. The opt-out notice should be mailed to: Vampr, Inc., 3110 Main St, Building C, Santa Monica, 90405, CA, USA Attn: Legal. The opt-out notice should state that you are opting out of the agreement to arbitrate in the Vampr Pro Account Services Agreement and provide your name, address, phone number, Account information, electronic mail address, signature and date.
(v) Amendments to Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Vampr agree that if Vampr amends this agreement to arbitrate in the future, the amendment shall not apply to a claim or dispute filed by either party prior to the effective date of the amendment.
(c) If the agreement to arbitrate does not apply to you, either because you opt-out or as a result of a decision by an arbitrator or court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen between you and Vampr will be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Los Angeles, California. You and Vampr agree to submit to personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Los Angeles, California for purposes hereof.
(a) Unless otherwise specifically provided elsewhere in the context in which it applies, any notice required or permitted to be given to any party to this Agreement, or any other agreement between you and Vampr, shall be in writing and shall
(i) If to Vampr, be either personally delivered by hand, delivered by prepaid courier or sent by prepaid registered mail and shall be deemed received upon delivery, and
(ii) if to a Member, be delivered either via email, or by being posted as a notification to the Member’s Account.
(b) Any such notice shall be delivered or sent:

You may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement, or any other agreement between you and Vampr, without the prior written consent of Vampr, which consent Vampr may withhold in its sole discretion, and any such attempted assignment or transfer without such prior written consent shall be null and void.
