Salvo System Description: Salvo has designed and developed the Salvo System, which is a grassroots volunteer organization and mobilization tool, providing a productivity tool that maximizes volunteers’ time, and effort.

You agree to (a) immediately notify Salvo of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. Salvo will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
Location Based Services: The Salvo System features require the enabling of location-based services while using the App. For features to work as intended, the Salvo System must be permitted to communicate with the phone/tablet and or computer (the “Device”) on which the App is used. When enabling Location Based Services for the Salvo System, the App collects, uses and shares the real time geographic location of the device with the Salvo System.

YOU ARE HEREBY AUTHORIZING THE SALVO SYSTEM, TO COLLECT AND USE YOUR LOCATION DATA IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SERVICES WITHIN THE APP.
Modifications to Salvo System: Salvo reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Salvo System (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

You agree that Salvo has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Salvo System.

In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Salvo and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your Salvo account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.

Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
A. Agreement to Arbitrate This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Salvo, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Salvo System, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. You agree that, by entering this Terms of Service, you and Salvo are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
B. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief YOU AND SALVO AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SALVO AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
C. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution Salvo is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at email@example.com.
D. Confidentiality 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.
E. Severability If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
F. Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement Notwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Service to the contrary, Salvo agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Salvo System, you may reject any such change by sending Salvo written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user, individual or entity in connection with the Salvo System and Salvo will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Salvo reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Salvo System, individual or entity.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Salvo and govern your use of the Salvo System, superseding any prior agreements between you and Salvo with respect to the Salvo System. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Salvo agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Broward County, Florida. The failure of Salvo to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Salvo System or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign this Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Salvo, but Salvo may assign or transfer this Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Salvo System may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Salvo System.
At Salvo, we respect the privacy of our users. By using the Salvo System, you consent to our collection and use of data as outlined therein.
