Terms of Service
Last updated: 12/1/2020
Palapa, Inc. (hereinafter “Palapa,” “we” or “us”) provides this website (the “Site”), computing application (the “App”), the storage functionality associated with the Site, and the associated data, services, information, tools, functionality, updates and similar materials delivered or provided by us (collectively, the “Service”), subject to your agreement to and compliance with the conditions set forth in this Terms of Service agreement (the “Agreement”).
This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions governing your access to and use of the Service. By accessing or using the Service or otherwise entering into this Agreement, you are creating a binding contract with us. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you may not access or use the Service.
We may revise or update this Agreement by posting an amended version through the Service and making you aware of the revisions, which may be through posting to the Service or otherwise. Your continued access to or use of the Service following an update to this Agreement (or other acceptance method) is considered acceptance of the updated Agreement. Please refer to the “Last updated” date above to see when this Agreement was last updated.
We do not represent or warrant that access to the Service will be error-free or uninterrupted, or without defect, and we do not guarantee that you will be able to access or use the Service, or its features, at all times. We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice.
The Service may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We reserve the right to correct any such errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice.
The following additional terms are incorporated into this Agreement as if fully set forth herein:
Among other functionality, the Service provides users access to a crowdsourced machine learning platform. Users may assist in creating custom artificial intelligence algorithms based on data sets that such user uploads through the Service or are uploaded by other users through the Service that are invited to do so via the Service. Users may then access and utilize such artificial intelligence algorithms by running them on the App. Users of the Service are collectively referred to as “Users” or “you.”
You must be at least thirteen (13) years old to use the Service. By using the Service, you represent that you meet the applicable minimum age requirement.
Some parts or all of the Service may not be available to the general public, and we may impose eligibility rules from time to time. We reserve the right to amend or eliminate these eligibility requirements at any time.
By requesting to use, registering to use and/or using the Service, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and you commit to abide by all of the terms and conditions hereof. You also represent and warrant that you are not a competitor of Palapa.
As long as you are in compliance with the conditions of this Agreement and all incorporated documents, we hereby grant you a limited, revocable, non-assignable, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license to access, receive and use the Service. No rights not explicitly listed are granted.
As more fully described on the Site, access to certain elements of the Site or Service may require your payment of fees (“Fees”).
We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to charge Fees to you through your registered account for use of the Service. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for errors made by the Payment Processor. You agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges for purchases made by you, and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (e.g., credit card) (your “Payment Method”).
We will automatically charge your Payment Method when payments are due, as more fully identified on the Site. If you purchase a subscription for Service, it may result in recurring charges to your Payment Method, and you agree that we may charge such amounts until such a time as your subscription expires, is terminated or you cancel the subscription, depending on the subscription type.
WE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AS PROVIDED HEREIN, OR PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE WE REASONABLY COULD ACT.
Your account will be considered delinquent if payment in full is not successful when a charge is initiated. Unless specified in an invoice, amounts due are exclusive of all applicable taxes, levies, or duties, and you will be responsible for payment of all such amounts. If you believe that any specific charge under this Agreement is incorrect, in order to obtain a credit, you must contact us in writing within thirty (30) days after the payment due date, and set forth the nature and amount of the requested correction; otherwise charges are final.
In addition to other applicable remedies, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate your access to the Service and/or terminate this Agreement if your Payment Method is declined or fails and your account therefore is delinquent. Charges to delinquent accounts are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs.
SUBSCRIPTIONS AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UNTIL CANCELLED BY YOU, UNTIL THE SUBSCRIPTION IS CANCELLED BY US, OR UNTIL WE TERMINATE ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. THE LENGTH OF ANY SUCH RENEWAL PERIOD SHALL BE THE SAME AS THE PRIOR TERM UNLESS OTHERWISE DESCRIBE ON THE WEBSITE. FEES OR CHARGES DURING ANY SUCH RENEWAL PERIOD SHALL BE THE SAME AS THAT DURING THE PRIOR TERM UNLESS OTHERWISE DESCRIBED ON THE WEBSITE, IN WHICH CASE THE INCREASE SHALL BE EFFECTIVE UPON RENEWAL AND THEREAFTER. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME.
TO CANCEL, YOU CAN EITHER (I) EMAIL US AT PRIVACY@PALAPA.AI AND FOLLOW ANY INSTRUCTIONS, IF ANY, WE PROVIDE TO YOU IN RESPONSE TO YOUR CANCELLATION REQUEST; OR (II) INITIATE A CANCELLATION THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS ON THE WEBSITE. Any Fees incurred prior to cancellation are non-refundable.
If you upgrade your subscription, you will be charged the difference in your current subscription Fees and the upgraded subscription Fees when you upgrade, and you will be charged the Fees for the upgraded subscription on an ongoing basis as provided herein. If you downgrade your subscription, you will be charged the reduced Fees at the beginning of the renewal period.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a court shall find that the above disclaimers are not enforceable, then, to the maximum extent permissible by law, you agree that neither we nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, members, shareholders, officers or directors shall be liable for (1) any damages in excess of the greater of (a) $500.00 or (b) the amounts paid to, or by, you through the Service within the last six months, or (2) any indirect, incidental, punitive, exemplary, special, or consequential damages or loss of use, lost revenue, lost profits or data to you or any third party from your access to or use of the Service. This limitation shall apply regardless of the basis of your claim, whether other provisions of this Agreement have been breached, or whether or not the limited remedies provided herein fail of their essential purpose.
This limitation shall not apply to any damage that we cause you intentionally and knowingly in violation of this Agreement or applicable law that cannot be disclaimed in this Agreement.
SOME STATES MAY NOT PERMIT CERTAIN DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS, AND ANY SUCH DISCLAIMERS OR LIMITATIONS ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
You agree that any claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to the Service will be resolved solely and exclusively by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. The laws of the New Jersey shall govern this Agreement, and shall be used in any arbitration proceeding.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the following address: Legal Department, Palapa, Inc., 1438 York St, Mahwah, NJ 07430.
Arbitration under this Agreement will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules then in effect, shall be conducted in English, and shall be located in Trenton, New Jersey. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
You and Palapa agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both you and Palapa agree that each have waived any right to a jury trial.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property or other proprietary rights.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
To the extent arbitration does not apply, you agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to the Service, or to us, may only be brought by you in a state or federal court located in Trenton, New Jersey. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THIS VENUE AS INCONVENIENT OR INAPPROPRIATE, AND AGREE TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN NEW JERSEY.
The Service is not directed to individuals under the age of 13. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to us, we will make efforts to delete the child’s information if required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Please see the Federal Trade Commission's website for (www.ftc.gov) for more information.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to 47 U.S.C. Section 230 (d), as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections are commercially available to assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. More information on the availability of such software can be found through publicly available sources. You may wish to contact your internet service provider for more information.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found for any reason to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision will be given its maximum enforceable effect, or shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision.
Revisions. This Agreement is subject to change on a prospective basis at any time. In the event that we change this Agreement, you may be required to re-affirm the Agreement through use of the Service or otherwise. Your access to and use of the Service after the effective date of any changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Service.
Assignment. We may assign our rights under this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign the Agreement without our prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.
No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
Notices. All notices given by you or required under this Agreement shall be in writing and addressed to: Legal Department, Palapa, Inc., 1438 York St, Mahwah, NJ 07430.
Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that we would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
Force Majeure. In no event shall we or our affiliates be liable to you for any damage, delay, or failure to perform resulting directly or indirectly from a force majeure event.
