MAYFIELD ROBOTICS TERMS OF USE


Last Modified: December 16, 2016

 

Please read these Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) carefully because they govern (a) the pre-order or purchase of any products (“Products”) from Robert Bosch Start-Up Platform North America, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (d/b/a Mayfield Robotics, Inc.) (“Mayfield,” “Company,” “us” or “we”) and (b) the use of Mayfield’s website (and any subdomains thereof) (the “Website”) and the related services (collectively the Service”), unless you have signed or otherwise executed a separate agreement with us that supersedes these Terms. Any software installed in our Products is licensed to you, not sold.

 

You may only use this software for its normal, intended use with our Products and in accordance with the Software License section below. When we say “sell” and “purchase” in these Terms, we mean “sell” and “purchase” only with respect to the non-software elements of the Product. These Terms apply whether or not they are included with the Products sold hereunder. By accessing or using the Service, or clicking a button or checking a box marked “I Agree” or something similar, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms, to the collection and use of your information as set forth in the Company Privacy Policy, which is hereby incorporated by reference. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who pre-order or purchase the Products and/or access the Service (“Users”).


Please read this agreement carefully to ensure that you understand each provision. These Terms contain a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.

 


1. USE OF OUR WEBSITE; PRE ORDERS AND REFUNDS


A. Eligibility
This is a contract between you and Company. You must read and agree to these terms before using the Service. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service. You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with Company, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 is strictly prohibited and in violation of these Terms. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by Company.


B. Ordering Products
Our Products are now available for pre-order. If you would like to pre-order Products from us, simply click the “pre-order now” button and follow the instructions. Once you place your order, we’ll email you with a pre-order confirmation (“Pre-Order Confirmation”) that indicates that we have received your pre-order request. With your Pre-Order Confirmation, we’ll confirm the quantity of Products you ordered, their price, and an estimated shipment date (“Estimated Shipment Date”). Pre-orders will not be accepted for delivery to locations outside of the U.S. and otherwise may not be accepted for delivery to certain addresses and territories based upon your location. We may contact you (via email or phone) if additional information is required to accept and process your order. Invalid order information may result in delays processing your order.

 

Your receipt of a Pre-Order Confirmation does not constitute Company’s acceptance of your pre-order. Our acceptance of your pre-order is expressly conditioned on your unconditional acceptance of these Terms, even if you communicate with us otherwise and Company may refund your pro-order amount instead of sending Products, in its sole discretion. We do not accept any changes to or rejections of these Terms that you may communicate to us in any form and all such terms and conditions will be null and of no effect Without prior notification, Company maintains the right to limit the Product order quantity and the right to refuse to sell or accept pre-orders of Products to any customer for any reason or no reason at all. Company reserves the right not to sell to resellers, dealers, or distributors. If your order is canceled, we will attempt to notify you using the email address you have given us with the order.

 

C. Refunds and Cancellations
You may cancel your pre-order any time before your purchased Product ships and, if your payment has already been processed, receive a full refund. We may also cancel your pre-order at any time and for any reason and if your payment has already been processed, you will receive a full refund subject to the following:

 

  • You acknowledge and agree that you are providing a deposit for a Product that is due to be shipped on or about the Estimated Shipping Date. If in the sole discretion of the Company, it cannot timely ship or deliver the Product, the Company may elect to refund your payment method, or may send you notice of a later delivery date; provided, in the event of such a notice, you may reach out to us at info@heykuri.com for a refund of your payment method. If you do not reach out to us for a refund following notice of delayed delivery, you hereby consent to such later delivery date.
  • You have the affirmative obligation to keep the Company informed regarding your location and the place of delivery of the Product (or refund, as applicable). If your payment method changes, or is cancelled, we may still refund to the original payment method. However, if you have cancelled the card or method, you must notify us so that we can make alternative arrangements to refund to you.
  • If we have not heard from you within three (3) years from the date on which we were to refund your payment method (assuming we determined that we could not timely ship or deliver the Product), and we cannot locate you, you agree that any amounts paid pursuant to these Terms shall be provided in accordance with the requirements of the California Unclaimed Property laws and we shall have no liability to you for any failure to refund your deposit to you.


We may provide a single shipping method and carrier, or multiple methods and carriers, for Product delivery, at our sole discretion. You will be responsible for all freight, packing, insurance and other shipping-related costs and expenses, and these will be noted on your order screen before you make your purchase. Once the Product is sent to the carrier, ownership of the Product and the risk of that Product’s loss passes to you.


You understand that all Estimated Shipment Dates are estimates only. We’ll make reasonable efforts to meet the scheduled shipment dates, but in no event will we be liable for any loss, damage, or penalty resulting from any delay in shipment or delivery, nor will the carrier be deemed our agent. If you have made a pre-order for multiple Products, we may send you your Products in installments and charge you separately for each installment. We have the right to allocate our available inventory of the Products among other purchasers in such manner as we see fit. If we’re not able to charge your payment method or you fail to pay for your purchase, we have the right to delay or suspend shipment of the Products.


The prices for the pre-order of Products will be as specified during checkout and in your Pre-Order Confirmation. Prices are stated in U.S. dollars with a separate subtotal for all typically applicable sales tax for purchases made within the United States. You agree to pay the applicable sales tax relating to the Products. You are also responsible for any other taxes imposed by you in connection with your purchase and use of the Product.

10. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER

 

A. Governing Law.

You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Clara County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.


B. 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 Company. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at info@heykuri.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Company has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Company agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) 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. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Company from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.


C. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver.

With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, 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 Company 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 of any kind.

Company reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms.

C. Entire Agreement/Severability.

These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Service. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in 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.


D. No Waiver.

No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Company’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.


E. Expiration of Claims.

Any claim or cause of action you may have with respect to Company or the Service must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arose.
