THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONSTITUTE AN ENFORCEABLE LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ALGORITHMIA. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY. BEFORE YOU MAY ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES, YOU MUST AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, ALGORITHMIA DOES NOT GRANT YOU THE RIGHT TO USE THE SERVICES.
Algorithmia reserves the right at any time to modify these Terms and Conditions and to impose new or additional terms or conditions on your use of the Services. Algorithmia will notify you of the modifications and/or new or additional terms or conditions by revising the date at the top of the Terms and Conditions and, in some cases, may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to the Algorithmia homepage or sending you an email notification). Such modifications and/or additional terms and conditions will become effective at the end of the 30 day period beginning when Algorithmia posts the changes via the Services (“Notice Period”). If you disagree with any changes, you must stop using the Services within the Notice Period. Your continued use of the Services after the Notice Period will be deemed acceptance of the changes. You should review these Terms and Conditions whenever you access the Services and at least every 30 days to make sure that you understand the terms, conditions, and restrictions that will apply to your use of the Services.
Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, Algorithmia reserves the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to the Services or any content or other materials comprising a part of the Services at any time without notice. In no event will Algorithmia be liable for making these changes. Algorithmia may also impose limits on the use of or access to certain features or portions of the Services, in any case and without notice or liability.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to certain Services. When you use a Service offered by Algorithmia, you will also be subject to the guidelines, terms and agreements applicable to that particular Service (the “Service Terms”). In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and any particular Service Terms, the Service Terms will control.

You and Algorithmia will arbitrate any dispute, claim, or controversy arising from or related to these Terms and Conditions or the Services, except that neither you nor Algorithmia is required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU AND ALGORITHMIA FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and Algorithmia will notify each other of any dispute within 30 days of when it arises and attempt informal resolution before any demand for arbitration. Arbitration will be conducted confidentially in Seattle, Washington, by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS (or its successor). Except as expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. The arbitrator will render a written opinion including findings of fact and law, and the award and determination of the arbitrator will bind the parties and will not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties will equally share the expenses of the arbitration unless the arbitrator determines to apportion fees and expenses differently. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, WHETHER THE DISPUTE IS HEARD IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, NO ARBITRATION OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SERVICES, AND NEITHER YOU NOR ALGORITHMIA WILL COMMENCE AGAINST THE OTHER A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
You can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate (“Opt-out”) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days after the date you agree to these Terms and Conditions for the first time. The Opt-out email you send to us must state that you do not agree to this agreement to arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number, and email address. Providing an Opt-out notice is the only way you can opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you Opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms and Conditions will continue to apply.
