These Terms & Conditions of Use (this “Agreement”) apply to all of the products, services and websites offered by Omstars, the mobile or tablet versions thereof, any Omstars software, and any applications created by Omstars whether available through a social networking site or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies. Please note that the availability of any Omstars applications on a social networking site, mobile or tablet device, internet television or other technology platform does not indicate any relationship or affiliation between Omstars and such social networking site, mobile or tablet device, or internet television or other technology platform.
You agree to the Arbitration Agreement and class action waiver described in Section 15 to resolve any disputes with Omstars (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court).
- The Omstars service is provided by Omstars, Inc., or one of its affiliated companies.
- Ongoing Membership. Your Omstars membership, which may start with a free trial, will continue month-to-month or year-to-year, based on your membership type and automatically renew unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") to use the Omstars service. We will bill the monthly or yearly membership fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month or each year in order to avoid billing of the next months or next years membership fees to your Payment Method.
- Free Trials
- Your Omstars membership may start with a free trial. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. Free trials are for new members only. Omstars reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility.
- We will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your membership and your membership will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your membership, including monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the "View billing details" link on the "Your Account" page. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
- CLICK THE "YOUR ACCOUNT" LINK AT THE TOP OF ANY Omstars WEB PAGE TO FIND CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your membership fee until you cancel or change to an annual membership in which you will be billed year-to-year from the date you switch to the annual option.
- Recurring Billing. By starting your Omstars membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly or yearly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Omstars service, such as taxes or possible transaction fees, to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month or year may vary from month to month or year-to-year for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly or yearly in one or more charges.
- No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
- Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the "Your Account" link, available at the top of the pages of the Omstars website. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
- Cancellation. You may cancel your Omstars membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Omstars service through the end of your monthly or yearly billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH OR PARITIAL YEAR MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED Omstars CONTENT. To cancel, go to the "Your Account" page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click "View billing details" on the "Your Account" page. If you signed up for Omstars using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to cancel your Omstars membership at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, including by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from, the Omstars service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Omstars membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.

Passwords & Account Access
Disclaimers of Warranties and Limitations on Liability
- The member who created the Omstars account and whose Payment Method is charged is referred to here as the Account Owner. The Account Owner has access and control over the Omstars account. The Account Owner's control is exercised through use of the Account Owner's password and therefore to maintain exclusive control, the Account Owner should not reveal the password to anyone. In addition, if the Account Owner wishes to prohibit others from contacting Omstars Customer Service and potentially altering the Account Owner's control, the Account Owner should not reveal the Payment Method details (e.g., last four digits of their credit or debit card, or their email address if they use PayPal) associated with their account. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the truth and accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account.

- You should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. Providing your information in response to these types of communications can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the Omstars website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official. Omstars reserves the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity.

Waiver of Liability
- If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to Omstars, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Omstars must be addressed to: General Counsel, Omstars, Inc., 9036 SW 152 street, Miami FL 33157 ("Notice Address"). If Omstars initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Omstars, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Omstars and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Omstars may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
- You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Omstars receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, Omstars will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
- The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Omstars and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence.
- If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. All arbitration proceedings under this Agreement shall be held exclusively in Miami, Florida. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Omstars’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Omstars did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Omstars will pay you the amount of the award or US$5,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
- YOU AND Omstars 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 Omstars agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
