When we make changes, we’ll post the revised Terms on our apps and/or website, and except as provided herein, changes will be effective immediately when we post them. If the changes are material, we’ll also notify you in accordance with applicable law. Notice may go to the email address associated with your account, so please make sure you keep that up to date. Material changes will be effective 30 days after we post them (or upon your affirmative acceptance if sooner). Except as stated in the Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section, your continued use of or access to the Service after any changes are effective constitutes your acceptance of all revised Terms.

You represent and warrant that all information you provide to us is truthful and accurate and you will keep it up to date. You can update certain of your information at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org . You agree not to share your password or account with anyone else, including anyone in your household. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs (including any charges incurred) on your account, and we may assume that any activity under your account was made by you. You must notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password, or any other suspected unauthorized activity. We will not be liable and you may be liable for losses, damages, liability, expenses, and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or a third party arising from someone else using your account regardless of whether you have notified us of such unauthorized use. You understand and agree that we may require you to provide information that may be used to confirm your identity and help ensure the security of your account.
The Premium Service
You may have access to certain features and functionality in the Service for free. In addition, you may choose to subscribe to our paid, premium service, where you’ll have access to additional, different and exclusive content and features (the “Premium Service”).
You may purchase a Premium Service subscription directly from Luminary on our website, or through a third party, such as the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. When you purchase a subscription through a third party, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that third party. When you purchase a subscription directly from Luminary, we will ask you to provide a payment method. You are responsible for keeping your payment method up to date and you authorize us to charge any new or updated payment method. If we are not able to successfully charge your payment method, we may, in our sole discretion, charge any other payment method associated with your account, or pause or suspend your access to the Premium Service, provided that you will remain liable for all uncollected amounts. We are not responsible for fees or penalties charged to you by your bank, credit card company, or issuer in connection with processing your payment.
By signing up for the Premium Service, you authorize us or the applicable third party to automatically charge your payment method monthly, annually, or otherwise in accordance with the terms of the subscription you purchased for the then applicable subscription charge, plus any applicable taxes and fees. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AT THE END OF THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, UNLESS YOU CANCEL. If you purchase your subscription directly from Luminary, you can cancel here. If you purchase your subscription through a third party, such as the Apple App Store, Apple Podcasts, Google Play Store, or Amazon Alexa, you must cancel through that party. ATTEMPTS TO CANCEL BY ANY OTHER MEANS WILL NOT BE IMPLEMENTED. Your cancellation will be effective on the first day immediately following the end of the current subscription period for which you have paid. You will continue to have access to the Premium Service until the end of your current subscription period and then your Premium Service will automatically end. All payments are non-refundable unless stated otherwise in writing. If we do provide a credit or a refund, we do so in our sole discretion and without obligation to do so again in the future.
We may offer you a free trial subscription to the Premium Service for a certain subscription period. Trials are only available to new subscribers unless stated otherwise. We reserve the right to determine your eligibility for our Premium Service, including free trials, in our sole discretion. AT THE END OF THE TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE PREMIUM SERVICE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED MONTHLY, ANNUALLY, OR OTHERWISE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF THE SUBSCRIPTION YOU PURCHASE. THIS MEANS THAT WE WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE THE THEN APPLICABLE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE TO THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU PROVIDED. If you purchase your subscription directly from Luminary, you can cancel here. If you purchase your subscription through a third party, you must cancel through that third party, such as the Apple App Store, Apple Podcasts, Google Play Store or Amazon Alexa. We may revoke or modify your trial subscription at any time in our sole discretion. Void where prohibited. Offer not available for residents of Quebec.
If you sign up for the Premium Service through a promotional offer, code or discount (including, without limitation, pursuant to a free trial offer), you may also be bound by additional or different terms communicated to you at sign up or otherwise in connection with the applicable offer. You agree to comply with those terms. Certain offers cannot be combined.
4. Modifications to the Service
We may update, modify or discontinue the Service, or any part or feature thereof (including, without limitation, any Content), at any time or from time to time in our sole discretion without notice or liability to you. We also reserve the right to change the price of our Premium Service from time to time in our sole discretion. We’ll notify you about any price changes, and they will be effective on the first day of the next subscription period. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to subscribe to the Premium Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not wish to agree to the price changes, you must cancel your Premium Service subscription before the end of the current subscription period.
If we discontinue the Premium Service permanently prior to the end of a subscription period for which you have already paid, we will provide a refund for any prepaid fees applicable to the time period after the effective date of discontinuation, provided that you cooperate with us in providing any information needed to accept such refund.

15. Governing Law
These Terms, and all disputes, claims or controversy (collectively, “Disputes”) between you and Luminary relating to these Terms, the Service or the Content, are governed by and construed exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of law principles.
16. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
In the event of any Dispute relating to these Terms, the Service or the Content, including disputes before creation of your account or after termination of these Terms or your account, you and Luminary agree as follows:
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this section. Prior to initiating arbitration as described in this section, the party alleging a Dispute will first send a written notice to the other party with a detailed description of the nature of the Dispute, including all relevant facts, and the requested relief. All notices to Luminary must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and by certified U.S. mail to Luminary Media, LLC, 250 Park Avenue South, Suite 230, New York, NY 10003, ATTN: Legal. Luminary will send all notices to the email address associated with your account. We will both use reasonable, good faith efforts to resolve any Dispute via discussion and negotiation within 60 days from receipt of such notice, but if we are not able to resolve the Dispute within the 60-day time period, either party may initiate arbitration as described in this section.
Arbitration is an alternative method of dispute resolution which is determined by an arbitrator, unlike litigation which is determined by a judge or jury. Arbitration awards are subject to limited court review. All Disputes shall be determined by a single arbitrator in binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) , as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and other information about arbitration are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties. All issues in dispute between the parties are for the arbitrator to decide, including, without limitation, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver provision.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA Rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against Luminary, then Luminary will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by AAA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous according to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, you agree to reimburse Luminary for all such costs and expenses that Luminary paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA Rules.
If you are a U.S. resident, arbitration will be held in the U.S. state in which you reside. If you are not a U.S. resident, arbitration will be held in New York, New York. You and Luminary further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in New York, New York in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
If a claim is solely for monetary relief of US$10,000 or less (and does not include a request for equitable relief), then the claimant may decide whether the arbitration will be conducted through a telephone or in-person hearing, or based solely on documents submitted to the arbitrator. If a claim exceeds US$10,000, AAA Rules will govern the right to a hearing. The arbitrator shall issue a written reasoned decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the decisions and award are based.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all Disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for Disputes within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
30-Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending (from the email address you used to register for your account) written notice of your decision to opt out to email@example.com with the subject line, "ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Service or the effective date of the first set of Terms containing an Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section, whichever is later; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Luminary also will not be bound by them.
Class Action Waiver: You and Luminary agree to resolve all Disputes in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of or as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative action. You further agree not to participate in any class, consolidated or representative proceeding brought by a third party. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver in this Section is unenforceable, then that Dispute will not be subject to arbitration and must be brought in court.
Changes to This Section: Luminary will provide thirty (30) days' notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Service, sending you a message, or otherwise notifying you when you are logged into your account. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on the Service or sent to you.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on "Changes to This Section" is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver,” and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Service.
Survival: This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your account or the Service.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms or any of your rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms, or any of our rights or obligations hereunder, at any time in our sole discretion, including without limitation to an affiliate or an acquirer of all or substantially all of our assets or equity. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, these Terms will be binding on and inure to the benefit of each party’s respective successors and assigns.
Headings are for reference only. If any provision is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be deleted or limited to give effect to the remaining provisions of these Terms.
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Luminary’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
20. No Third-Party Beneficiaries
You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
