IMPORTANT NOTICE: THESE TERMS INCLUDE A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IN THE SECTION TITLED “DISPUTE RESOLUTION.” THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND QUILLBEE, LLC, AND REQUIRE YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES IN BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN COURT.
1.1 License: Your use of the Service is licensed—not sold—to you on a subscription basis, and you hereby acknowledge that no right, title, or interest in and to the Service is hereby sold or transferred to you. The license is limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and subject to other limitations set forth herein.
1.2 Subscription and Pricing: By purchasing any subscription to the Service, you acknowledge and agree to pay the applicable subscription fees as set forth on the Website. You further acknowledge that Quillbee has the right, in its sole business discretion at any time prior to accepting your offer to purchase a subscription, to withdraw any discount and/or to make any revision to the price of the Service, and that Quillbee may at any time and with or without notice revise the pricing for the Service, including the period at which recurring subscription payments are due and including the introduction, removal, or revision of pricing tiers. You further acknowledge that subscription payments will be processed automatically, and you consent to periodic, recurring charges for subscription fees to your credit or debit card or other payment method.

2.2 Limitations: Support may be subject to limitations, including but not limited to limitations arising from the nature and complexity of the issue, your compliance with this Agreement, the availability of necessary information and resources, and circumstances beyond Quillbee’s control, such as issues with your browser, operating system, other computer software or hardware used by you. Quillbee reserves the right to limit or terminate support at any time and for any or no reason in its sole business discretion.
3. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT OR TO PURSUE CLAIMS IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
3.1 Governing Law: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Tennessee, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
3.2 Arbitration: Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, shall be exclusively resolved by arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
3.3 CLASS AND COLLECTIVE ACTION WAIVER: TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU AND QUILLBEE AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, A COLLECTIVE ACTION, A CLASS ARBITRATION, OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. To the extent that applicable law may prohibit waiver of class action, collective action, or private attorney general claims, but permits them to be arbitrated, the parties agree that such claims shall be resolved in arbitration, whereby the arbitrator shall be empowered to grant such relief as would be available in law or equity before a court of competent jurisdiction, subject to the limitations set forth herein.
3.4 Limitation of Liability: To the maximum extent allowed by law, you agree that in any dispute, your sole and entire remedy shall be monetary damages not to exceed the total fees paid by you to Quillbee for the twelve (12) months immediately preceding your initiation of the dispute. Under no circumstances shall Quillbee or any Quillbee affiliate, officer, director, employee, agent, subsidiary, successor in interest, assign, or other person be liable to you for any amount, in aggregate, however designated or calculated, that exceeds the dollar value of your combined purchases from Quillbee during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding your initiation of the dispute or for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the use of or inability to use the Service. In the event that applicable law prohibits this limitation, Quillbee’s liability shall be limited to the maximum extent allowable by law.
3.5 Exceptions: Nothing in this part shall be deemed or construed to limit either party’s right to seek public injunctive relief, to pursue individual claims before small claims court, to seek injunctive or other equitable relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Service, or to claim or adjudicate any other non-waivable right, pending ruling on the said relief or right from the arbitrator.
3.6 Jurisdiction and Venue: In the event that any action between you and Quillbee should proceed before any court, you consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state trial courts of Tennessee, you agree that Bradley County, Tennessee, is an appropriate and convenient venue, and you agree that all claims shall be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts of Bradley County, Tennessee. Nothing in this part shall be deemed or construed to constitute a waiver of the parties’ agreement to proceed exclusively in arbitration as provided herein.
4. Content; Intellectual Property
4.1 Rights in Content: You provide input to the Service, which input constitutes but is not limited to keywords, topics, context, article briefs, tone, and other content written by you in the Service’s article editor interface or elsewhere prior to employing the Service’s features (“Input”), and the Service returns written output (“Output”). “Output” does not include Input to the extent that the Service may reproduce unaltered Input verbatim. Together, Input and Output constitute “Content.” You represent and warrant that you own all Input and that all provided Input does not infringe, misappropriate, or violate the rights of any person, that all provided Input complies with applicable law, and that the provision of any Input and the use by Quillbee of any Input would not violate any applicable law or infringe, misappropriate, or violate the right of any person or of any person in and to any property, intellectual or otherwise. In order for Quillbee to provide the Service, Quillbee employs artificial intelligence and machine learning, and this requires the transmission of Input to third parties. You hereby expressly consent to the transmission, including to third parties, of all Input provided to Quillbee. Subject to your performance of your obligations pursuant to these Terms, Quillbee hereby assigns to you all its right, title, and interest in and to the Output, provided, however, that Quillbee expressly disclaims certain warranties in these Terms, those disclaimers apply to the Output, and you agree to accept the entire risk of using the Service and using Content provided hereby. You may use Content for any purpose, including commercial purposes such as sale or publication, provided you comply with these Terms. In particular but without limitation, you agree to accept all risk that Output may be factually inaccurate, similar to Content generated by other users of the Service, harmful, defamatory, or that it may infringe upon the intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties. You hereby agree to undertake best efforts to evaluate all Content prior to any reproduction in order to ensure that the Content is accurate and appropriate for your use case, and you understand that you, and not Quillbee, will be liable for all harm arising from your use of or reproduction of any Content, whether foreseeable or not.
4.2 Indemnification: You agree to save, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Quillbee, and all Quillbee affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, successors in interest, assigns, and other persons from and against all claims, losses, choses in action, and expenses (including attorney fees) arising out of or relating to your use of the Website and Service, including all Output and Content and including all products, services, derivative works, or other property you create, develop, invent, make, offer, or sell in connection with the Service, in breach of these Terms, or in violation of applicable law.
4.3 Reserved Rights: Quillbee hereby reserves all rights in and to its name, logos, trademarks, and other proprietary and brand identifying intellectual property without prior written consent.
5.1 Modification of Terms: Quillbee reserves the right to modify, alter, or amend these Terms at any time, with or without notice, whereupon the Terms of Service containing such modification, alteration, or amendment shall constitute a new Terms of Service (“New Terms”). In the event that Quillbee adopts New Terms pursuant to this section, these Terms shall immediately terminate, and the New Terms shall immediately take effect and apply retroactively. In the event that Quillbee should adopt New Terms and you do not wish to be bound by them, you shall immediately cease using the Website and Service. In the event that Quillbee should adopt New Terms, your continued use of the Website and Service thereafter indicates and constitutes your acceptance of the New Terms.
5.2 Modification of Website and Service: Quillbee may at any time, with or without notice, and for any or for no reason change, modify, suspend, or discontinue the Website, Service, or any aspect or feature thereof, including changing or removing features, restricting access to features, or changing the way the Service and features are priced.
