U.S. Government End Users. The Mobile Software was developed by private financing and constitutes a “Commercial Item,” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. §2.101. The Mobile Software consists of “Commercial Computer Software” and “Commercial Computer Software Documentation,” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. §12.212. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. §12.212 and 48 C.F.R. §227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, all U.S. Government end users acquire only those rights in the Mobile Software that are expressly provided by this Agreement. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. §12.211, all U.S. Government end users acquire only technical data and the rights in that data as expressly provided in this Agreement.

You acknowledge and agree that your threatened or actual breach of this Section 17 shall cause REPUBLICAN SINGLES irreparable damage for which recovery of money damages would be inadequate and that REPUBLICAN SINGLES therefore may seek timely injunctive relief to protect its rights under this Agreement in addition to any and all other remedies available at law or in equity.
- PAID SERVICES
Should you purchase any Services that we offer for a fee (the “Paid Services”), such as a subscription to our Services or virtual coins or credits (as described below), you thereby authorize REPUBLICAN SINGLES and our designated payment processors to store your payment information and all other related information. You also agree to pay the applicable fees for the Paid Services (including and without limitation periodic fees for ongoing subscriptions (the “Subscription Fees”) as set forth on the Services) as they become due, plus all related taxes (including and without limitation, use and sales taxes, duties or other governmental taxes or fees), and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for any partially used Paid Services (including partially used subscription periods) except (i) as expressly set forth in this Agreement, (ii) as otherwise required by applicable law and (iii) at REPUBLICAN SINGLES’s sole and absolute discretion. Fees for the Paid Services may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage or as otherwise described when you initially purchase the Paid Services. All prices for Paid Services are subject to change without notice (except as otherwise described in this Section 18).
Current Information Required. You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete billing information and agree to promptly update all such information (such as changes in credit card number, credit card expiration date, billing address, or) as necessary for the processing of all payments that are due to REPUBLICAN SINGLES. You agree to promptly notify REPUBLICAN SINGLES if you become aware of a potential breach of security related to your Payment Method or if your Payment Method is canceled (for example, due to loss or theft).

You authorize REPUBLICAN SINGLES to charge you for Paid Services through any payment method(s) you select when purchasing the Paid Services (the “Payment Method”) and you agree to make payment using such Payment Method(s) (we may, from time to time, receive and use updated payment method information provided by you or that financial institutions or payment processors may provide to us, to update information related to your Payment Method(s), such as updated expiration dates or account numbers). Certain Payment Methods, such as debit cards and credit cards, may involve agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Methods (the “Payment Method Provider”). If we do not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to directly pay all amounts due upon demand from us. Your non-termination or continued use of the Paid Services reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method. REPUBLICAN SINGLES’s Paid Services may also be purchased through your accounts with certain third-parties, such as your Google Play account, Apple iTunes account, your or your Amazon account (a “Third-Party Account”). If you purchase any Paid Services through a Third-Party Account, billing for these Paid Services will appear through your Third-Party Account.

UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED IN ANY APPLICABLE ADDITIONAL TERMS OR COMMUNICATIONS WE SEND TO YOUR REGISTERED EMAIL ADDRESS, SUCH RENEWAL WILL BE AT THE SAME SUBSCRIPTION FEE AS WHEN YOU FIRST SUBSCRIBED, PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES, UNLESS WE NOTIFY YOU AT LEAST 10 DAYS PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR CURRENT TERM THAT THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE WILL INCREASE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT UPON EACH SUCH AUTOMATIC RENEWAL YOUR PAYMENT METHOD WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED FOR SUCH SUBSCRIPTION FEES, PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES.

YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE AMOUNT OF THE RECURRING CHARGE MAY CHANGE IF THE APPLICABLE TAX RATES CHANGE OR IF YOU ARE NOTIFIED THAT THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE IN THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEES.
Change in Amount Authorized. If the total amount to be charged varies from the amount you authorized when purchasing any Paid Services (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of taxes, including without limitation sales and use taxes, duties or other governmental taxes or fees), REPUBLICAN SINGLES will provide notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the transaction. You agree to pay the increased price for the Paid Services if you do not cancel your Paid Services before the increased price goes into effect. You agree that REPUBLICAN SINGLES may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charge during or at the end of each billing cycle.

Unless otherwise stated, you may exercise any rights applicable to you by providing written notice to us (which includes your REPUBLICAN SINGLES user name and the email address used to register for the Services) by mail at REPUBLICAN SINGLES, LLC., Attn: Refund Request, PO BOX 6115, La Quinta, CA 92248.
California. The following additional provisions(s) apply if you are a California subscriber (as determined by the zip code you use at the time of your subscription):
If by reason of death or Disability (as defined below) you are unable to receive all services for which you have contracted, you and your estate may elect to be relieved of the obligation to make payments for the Services other than those received before death or the onset of disability. If you have prepaid any amount for Services, so much of the amount prepaid that is allocable to Services that you have not received shall be promptly refunded to you and your representative. “Disability” means a condition which precludes you from physically using the Services specified in the contract during the term of disability and the condition is verified in writing by a physician designated and remunerated by you. The written verification of the physician shall be presented to REPUBLICAN SINGLES. If the physician determines that the duration of the disability will be less than six months, we may extend the term of the contract for a period of six months at no additional charge to you in lieu of cancellation.
You acknowledge that the Services are accessible online and are offered in many locations internationally and that therefore, there is no physical dating service office. Thus, you acknowledge and agree that for purposes of California Civil Code¬§ 1694.3(b), the term “Dating Service Office” shall mean any location where the Services are available. If you relocate your primary residence further than 50 miles from REPUBLICAN SINGLES’s Dating Service Office and you are unable to transfer the contract to a comparable facility, you may elect to be relieved of the obligation to make payment for services, other than those received prior to that relocation. Upon such election, if you have prepaid any amount for dating services, so much of the amount prepaid that is allocable to services that you have not received shall be promptly refunded to you If you elect to be relieved of further obligation pursuant to this subdivision, REPUBLICAN SINGLES may charge you a fee of $100.00 or, if more than half the life of the contract has expired, a fee of $50.00, not to exceed the amount of the refund to which you are entitled. Such fee shall be deducted from any refund which REPUBLICAN SINGLES is required to make to you.
Illinois. The following additional provision(s) apply if you are an Illinois subscriber (as determined by the zip code you use at the time of your subscription):
You acknowledge that the Services are accessible online and are offered in many locations internationally and that therefore, there is no physical dating service office. Thus, you acknowledge and agree that for purposes of the Illinois Dating Referral Services Act, the location of an “enterprise” shall mean any location where the Services are available. If you relocate your primary residence to a location that is more than 25 miles from where our Services are comparably offered, you may cancel this contract and shall be liable only for that portion of the charges allocable to the time before reasonable evidence of the relocation is presented to REPUBLICAN SINGLES plus a fee equal to the lesser of (1) 10% of the unused balance or (2) $50. Such fee shall be deducted from any refund which REPUBLICAN SINGLES is required to make to you.
If by reason of death you are unable to receive all services for which you have contracted, your estate may elect to be relieved of the obligation to make payments for the Services other than those received before death. We shall have the right to require and verify reasonable evidence of the death.
New York. The following additional provisions(s) apply if you are a New York subscriber (as determined by the zip code you use at the time of your subscription):
If you subscribe for any Paid Services, REPUBLICAN SINGLES will provide a minimum of one match to you each month. In the event we do not provide at least one match for two or more successive months, you shall have the option to cancel this agreement by notifying us in writing at the address stated in this Agreement and to receive a refund of all monies paid pursuant to the cancelled contract; provided, however, that REPUBLICAN SINGLES shall retain as a cancellation fee 15% of the cash price or a pro rata amount for the number of referrals furnished to you, whichever is greater. This shall be your sole remedy for failure to provide the minimum number of referrals.

You acknowledge and agree that if you post any information, including photographs, to the Services for posting on your profile or other areas of the Services, such information will be publicly accessible, and you are consenting to the display of such information on the Services.
If you permanently relocate your primary residence further than 50 miles from any area in which REPUBLICAN SINGLES offers the Services, you may elect to terminate your subscription by notifying us in writing at REPUBLICAN SINGLES, LLC., Attn: Refund Request, PO BOX 6115, La Quinta, CA 92248.

You have the right to place your subscription on hold for a period of up to one year at any time. To do this, you must notify REPUBLICAN SINGLES in writing (which includes your REPUBLICAN SINGLES user name and the email address used to register for the Services) at REPUBLICAN SINGLES, LLC., Attn: Refund Request, PO BOX 6115, La Quinta, CA 92248.

We shall have the right to require and verify reasonable evidence of the death or disability.

- GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION; WAIVER; INDEMNIFICATION
Our goal is to resolve any disputes amicably and quickly and we encourage you to contact us and explain your complaint as soon as it arises.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, the interpretation and enforcement of, and proceedings pursuant to, Section 24(b) of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16), and we expressly recognize and acknowledge the continuing applicability of our right to contract for binding arbitration and waiver of any right to participate in a class Action or jury trial, as set out in Section 24(b) hereof. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against REPUBLICAN SINGLES must be resolved in a federal or state court located in Riverside County, California, USA or as described in the Arbitration provision below. Both you and REPUBLICAN SINGLES retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, violation, or misappropriation of copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, patents, or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that the state or federal courts located in Riverside County, California, USA are the exclusive forum for any proceeding to confirm or vacate an arbitration award rendered in accordance with Section 24(b) hereof (or for any proceeding seeking relief in aid of such arbitration) or in the event that the Arbitration provision below is for any reason held to be unenforceable.
Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM REPUBLICAN SINGLES. For any dispute with REPUBLICAN SINGLES, you agree to first attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally by contacting us within 30 days of when the dispute first arises at email@example.com. In the unlikely event that REPUBLICAN SINGLES has not been able to informally resolve a dispute it has with you within 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief described in Section 24(a)) arising out of or in connection with or relating to the Services or this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, including disputes related to the applicability, enforceability, formation, or interpretation of this agreement to arbitrate (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“JAMS”) under the JAMS Optional Expedited Procedures then in effect, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. You will have the right to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. If the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator, one may be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or by the procedures provided by JAMS. The arbitrator shall be an attorney licensed to practice in the location where the arbitration proceedings will be conducted or a retired federal or state judicial officer who presided in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted, unless the parties agree otherwise. The arbitration will be conducted in Riverside County, California, USA (or the nearest office to Riverside County), unless you request a hearing in your hometown area or you and REPUBLICAN SINGLES agree otherwise. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by JAMS rules, but if you are unable to pay any of them, REPUBLICAN SINGLES will pay them for you. The award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys’ fees and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. REPUBLICAN SINGLES will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights. You may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and REPUBLICAN SINGLES submit to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing.
CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER. YOU AND REPUBLICAN SINGLES AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND REPUBLICAN SINGLES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold REPUBLICAN SINGLES, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their directors, officers, managers, agents, contractors, partners and employees harmless from any loss, liability, claim, damages, costs, debts, expenses or demand, including reasonable attorney’s fees, due to or arising from (i) your use of or access to the Services, including any data or content transmitted or received by you, or your inability to use the Services; (ii) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any User Content that is submitted via your account (iii) your conduct in connection with the Services or our users, (iv) your violation of any of the terms of this Agreement, including and without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above, (v) your violation of any rights of a Third-Party, including without limitation any right of privacy or intellectual property rights; (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Services with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code or (viii) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
Severability. If any clause within this Section 24 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this section and the remainder of the section will be given full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
