You acknowledge and agree that, as provided in greater detail in the EULA:
• The App is licensed, not sold to you, and that you may use the Service only as set forth in this EULA;
• Your use of the Service may be subject to separate third party terms of service and fees, including without limitation the terms of service and data, SMS, MMS, and other fees of your mobile network operator (the “Carrier”), which are your sole responsibility;
• The Service is provided “as is” without warranties of any kind (all express or implied warranties are expressly disclaimed) and CKM’s liability to you is limited;
• Disputes arising hereunder will be resolved by binding arbitration, AND BY ACCEPTING THIS EULA, YOU AND CKM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court). Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury and your claims cannot be brought as a class action.

5. App Terms. The terms of this Section 6 govern your acquisition and use of App.
• Third Party Accounts. In order to download the App, you may be required by the third party who is distributing or providing you access to the App, such as Apple, Inc. (each, a “Distributor”) to create an account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of any logins, passwords, or other credentials that you select or that are provided to you to access your account with any Distributor. Your use of any account with a Distributor is subject to any terms, conditions, and policies, including privacy policies, of that Distributor. CKM is not responsible for any act or omission of any Distributor.
• License to the App. Subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with all the terms and conditions set forth in this EULA (including without limitation compliance with all license restrictions), CKM grants you (1) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use one copy of the App downloaded directly from CKM or from a legitimate marketplace (such as Apple’s iTunes store), solely in object code format and solely for your personal use for lawful purposes, on a single compatible mobile device that you own or control; and (2) permission to access and use the Service, only for your personal use, and solely through the use of a licensed copy of the App. You may not reproduce, distribute, publicly display, or publicly perform the App or any part of the Service. Except if, and solely to the extent that, such a restriction is impermissible under applicable law, you may not (a) decompile, reverse engineer, or otherwise access or attempt to access the source code for the App, or make or attempt to make any modification to or derivative work of the App; or (b) interfere with or circumvent any feature of the App, including without limitation any security or access control mechanism. You may not use the App or the Service for any purpose other than a purpose for which the App and the Service are expressly designed. The term App, as used herein, includes any update or modification to the App made available to you by CKM (unless provided with separate terms). If you are prohibited under applicable law from using the App or the Service, you may not use them.
• Access to the App; Third Party Fees. CKM does not provide you with the equipment to use the App, and has no responsibility to do so. You are responsible for all fees charged by third parties to access and use the App (e.g., charges by mobile carriers). Without limiting the foregoing, you are solely responsible for the payment of all applicable fees associated with any carrier service plan you use in connection with your use of the Service (such as voice, data, SMS, MMS, roaming, other applicable fees charged by the carrier). Accordingly, you should use care in selecting a service plan offered by your carrier. If your device is lost or stolen, you must notify CKM immediately to suspend services. Where your employer provides the equipment and/or third party services necessary to use this Service, you are responsible for coordinating with your employer to ensure such access to equipment and services as may be necessary to use the App.
• Special Terms Regarding Apple. If you download software from Apple, Inc.’s App Store, your use of the software must at all times be in accordance with the Usage Rules set forth in the Apple, Inc. App Store Terms of Service, and you acknowledge that this EULA is between you and CKM only, and not with Apple. Apple is not responsible for the Service and the content thereof. This Agreement is not intended to provide for usage rules for software that are less restrictive than the Usage Rules set forth for “Licensed Applications” in, or that otherwise conflict with, the App Store Terms of Service. Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Service. In the event of any failure of the Service to conform to any applicable warranty, then you may notify Apple and Apple will refund any applicable purchase price for the App to you; and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Service. Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the Service or your possession and/or use of the Service, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) maintenance and support; (iii) any claim that the Service fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iv) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. Apple is not responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any third party claim that the Service and/or your possession and use of the App infringe that third party’s intellectual property rights. You agree to comply with any applicable third party terms, when using the Service. Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this EULA, and upon your acceptance of this EULA, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this EULA against you as a third party beneficiary of this EULA. You hereby represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

• User Content Disclaimer. We are under no obligation to edit or control User Content that you or other users post or publish, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. CKM may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Content that in our sole judgment violates this EULA or is otherwise objectionable. You understand that when using the Service you will be exposed to User Content from a variety of sources and acknowledge that User Content may be inaccurate, offensive, indecent or objectionable. You agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against CKM with respect to User Content. We expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with User Content. If notified by a user or content owner that User Content allegedly does not conform to this EULA, we may investigate the allegation and determine in our sole discretion whether to remove the User Content, which we reserve the right to do at any time and without notice. CKM does not permit copyright-infringing activities on the Service.

All such Additional Terms are hereby incorporated by reference into, and made a part of, this EULA.
11. Modification of this EULA. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change this EULA on a going-forward basis at any time. Please check this EULA periodically for changes.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CKM DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES RELATED TO LOCATION-BASED SERVICES OR ANY LOCATION DATA. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE SERVICE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THE SERVICE OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY REGARDING ANY OF THE CKM ENTITIES OR THE SERVICE THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS EULA.

16. Texas Construction Indemnity Provisions.
• By use of this App and the App services, you agree to indemnify, defend and save harmless CKM, and its officers, directors, shareholders, agents and employees, from and against all claims, demands, lawsuits, causes of action, damages, attorneys’ fees, costs, interest, judgments, liens, bond or lien claims and expenses of whatsoever kind or nature when the same, in whole or in part, result from, arise out of, relate to or concern 1) Your use of the App in the performance (or lack thereof) of any construction contract or subcontract, and all matters required in any contract documents or subcontract work, or 2) any demand or other claim or cause of action may be asserted relating to the App on the Project where the App is used.

17. Governing Law. This EULA is governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to conflict of law principles. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and CKM agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Dallas County, Texas for the purpose of litigating all such disputes not otherwise governed by the arbitration procedures in Section 20. We operate the Service from our offices in Texas, and we make no representation that Materials included in the Service are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
19. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
• Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and CKM in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and CKM agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this EULA will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this EULA, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of this EULA. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS EULA, YOU AND CKM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
• Exceptions. Notwithstanding the above, we both agree that nothing in this EULA will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
• Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and CKM will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules“) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), as modified by this EULA, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting CKM.
• Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice“). CKM’s address for Notice is: 1810 N. Greenville Ave, Richardson, Texas 75081. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand“). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or CKM may commence an arbitration proceeding.
• No Class Actions. YOU AND CKM AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and CKM agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
• Modifications. If CKM makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to CKM’s address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to CKM’s address for Notice, in which case your account with CKM will immediately be terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject will survive.
• Enforceability. If this Section 20 is found to be unenforceable, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 18 will govern any action arising out of or related to this EULA.
21. Contact Information. The services hereunder are offered CKM, Inc., located at 1810 N. Greenville Ave, Richardson, Texas 75081. You may contact us by sending correspondence to the foregoing address or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
22. Open Source Software. The App may include open source software or third party software. Any such software is made available to you under the terms of the applicable licenses.
23. Safety. Use of the App is not a substitute for following the safety protocols and procedures required by federal and state laws, or directions and instructions of your supervisor or company. In an emergency, do not rely on the App, but immediately call 9-1-1 and inform your supervisor of any emergent conditions. CKM or the App is not responsible for the hiring or managing of the workforce present at any job site. By using this App, you expressly agree to, at all times, conducts, direct, control and/or work in complete compliance with federal and state safety standards, including OSHA 1926, site specific safety plans, and any applicable codes and regulations.
