License Agreement for Using Specific Applications
You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Services on mobile devices is dependent on the third party websites from which you download such Services, e.g., the App Store from Apple or the Android app market from Google (each an “App Store”). You acknowledge that the Terms of Service are between you and Signal Zero and not with an App Store. Each App Store may have its own terms and conditions to which you must agree before downloading the Services from it. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Services is conditioned upon your compliance with, such App Store terms and conditions. To the extent such other terms and conditions from such App Store are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of the Terms of Service, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in the Terms of Service apply.
Your use of the Services and the relating licenses granted hereunder are also conditioned upon your strict adherence to the letter and spirit of the various applicable guidelines and any end user licenses associated with your use of our mobile apps. Signal Zero may modify such guidelines in its sole discretion at any time. Signal Zero reserves the right to terminate your Account and access to the Services if it determines that you have violated any such applicable guidelines.
Apple, the Apple logo and iPhone are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc.
During your use of the Services, Signal Zero may license to you certain virtual goods, such as virtual currency items and services. Unless otherwise specified, these virtual goods shall be deemed an integral part of the Services. These virtual goods may be licensed both for a fee using “real world money” and without any separate fee, as applicable from time to time. These virtual goods may also be licensed by using third party virtual currency, such as Facebook Credits or by using separate activation codes. Any and all virtual goods are licensed to you on limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable basis and limited only for non-commercial use.
Signal Zero may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate virtual goods at any time, with or without notice. Signal Zero shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that Signal Zero exercises any such rights.
The Services may allow you to purchase virtual goods with “real” money, for example, through Signal Zero or third party services, including but not limited to, in-app purchases via your App Store, payment processors hired by Signal Zero, a third party online marketplace, your wireless carrier, your credit card company, etc. Signal Zero will store purchase information cumulatively. If you purchase virtual goods through third party services, such as Facebook Credits from Facebook, such transaction is governed by the agreement between you and such third party service provider and Signal Zero is not a party to the transaction. Any payment for licenses for virtual goods or redemption of third party virtual currency is always FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE. SUBJECT TO MANDATORY LEGISLATION, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SIGNAL ZERO IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR VIRTUAL GOODS FOR ANY REASON, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE MONEY OR OTHER COMPENSATION FOR UNUSED VIRTUAL GOODS WHEN AN ACCOUNT IS CLOSED, WHETHER SUCH CLOSURE WAS VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY.

Third party links are provided solely as a convenience to you and should not be construed as an endorsement by Signal Zero of content, items, or services provided on such third-party sites. You shall access and use such third party sites, including the content, items, or services on those sites, solely at your own risk.
Signal Zero does not make any representations or warranties with respect to any content or privacy practices, or otherwise with respect to such third parties or any items or services that may be obtained from such third parties, and you agree that Signal Zero will have no liability with respect to any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any dealings between you and any third party, or as a result of the presence of links or ads of such third parties on the Services.
If there is a dispute between you and any such third party, you understand and agree that Signal Zero shall be under no obligation to become involved. IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY, YOU HEREBY RELEASE SIGNAL ZERO, ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND SUCCESSORS IN RIGHTS FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND OR NATURE, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO SUCH DISPUTES AND / OR THE SERVICES.
