Acceptance of Terms.
These Terms of Service (the “Terms” or the “Agreement”) are an agreement between you (“User” or “you” or “your”) and Kinetic Aesthetic, Inc. (“Kinetic Aesthetic,” or “we,” “us” or “our”). By using any of our products and services, you represent that you are at least 18 years old, legally able to enter into a contract and have read and agree to these Terms.
If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not permitted to use the Services and must delete any software associated with Services and deactivate any user accounts associated with the Services.
Description of the Service.
We provide a mobile application called Whorl, which offers a way for users to create a variety of generative artworks to share or print on physical products. The Services include any associated websites and downloaded mobile application or any other software or services provided by us.
We may modify these Terms from time to time. Any changes to the Terms will be effective when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter.
Grant of Limited License.
While you comply with this Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, limited, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Services as described in these Terms (the “License”).
You may use the Services on any platform, including but not limited to cell phones, tablets, or computers that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the iTunes App Store Terms of Service.
Any rights not specifically granted in this Agreement are reserved by us. The Services are licensed, and not sold, to you. Your use of the Services confers no title or ownership in or to the Services and should not be construed as a sale of any rights in the Services.
The License Term begins with your first use of the Services and shall continue until the earlier of either termination or until your account is otherwise deactivated.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and at any time, to terminate the License and the User's access to the Services.
Apple App Store Terms.
This Agreement is between you and Kinetic Aesthetic only, and not with Apple, and Kinetic Aesthetic, not Apple, is solely responsible for the Services. You acknowledge that Kinetic Aesthetic, not Apple, is responsible for addressing any of your claims or any third party claims relating to the Services, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Services fail to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. In the event of any third party claim that the Services infringe third party’s intellectual property rights, Kinetic Aesthetic, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim. You acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.

Limitation of Liability
Kinetic Aesthetic disclaims liability for any loss, injury, claim or damage related to your use of its Services, including without limitation, those resulting from errors or omissions, a site or application being down, or data loss. We will not be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, consequential, reliance, punitive or special damages. In no event will we be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages resulting from possession, use or malfunction of the Services, including damages to property, loss of goodwill, computer failure or malfunction and, to the extent permitted by law, damages for personal injuries, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Our liability shall not exceed the actual price paid for the license to use the Services.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the Services is at your sole risk and that the entire risk as to satisfactory quality, performance, accuracy and effort is with you. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Services are provided “as is” and “as available”, with all faults and without warranty of any kind, and Kinetic Aesthetic hereby disclaims all warranties and conditions with respect to the services, either express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties and/or conditions of merchantability, of satisfactory quality, of fitness for a particular purpose, of accuracy, of quiet enjoyment, and non-infringement of third party rights. Kinetic Aesthetic does not warrant against interference with your enjoyment of the services, that the functions contained in, or provided by, the Services will meet your requirements, that the operation of the services will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that defects in the Services will be corrected. No oral or written information or advice given by Kinetic Aesthetic or its authorized representative(s) shall create a warranty. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so the above exclusion and limitations may not apply to you.
We may provide links to other websites from time to time. These links are provided for your convenience. Kinetic Aesthetic does not endorse or take responsibility for the content of these other websites and will not be liable in any for any damages or losses which you may suffer by using those websites. If you choose to access such linked websites, you do so at your sole risk.
You agree to indemnify and defend Kinetic Aesthetic, its partners, affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, agents and assigns from all damages, losses and expenses arising from your acts and omissions while using the Services and from any breach of any representations and/or warranties contained in this Agreement.
Kinetic Aesthetic may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Notwithstanding, you may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under the Agreement without our express prior written consent.
Because Kinetic Aesthetic would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, you agree that Kinetic Aesthetic shall be entitled, without bond, other security or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to Your breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as Kinetic Aesthetic may otherwise have under applicable laws.
You may provide feedback, suggestions, and ideas about the Services. You grant us the irrevocable right to use your feedback and incorporate your suggestions into our Services without any obligation to provide attribution or compensation to you or any third party.
