These Terms are void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the xiaovv Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
3. Member account, password and security
You will create a password and account designation during the xiaovv Service's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to properly protect your account by, for example, exiting from or logging out of your account at the end of each session. You will also immediately notify us of unauthorized use of your password or account.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 3. We may refuse registration of or cancel xiaovv account designation in its discretion.
4. Third-Party content
The xiaovv Services give you the ability to access media content controlled by third parties ("Third-Party Content") over which we exercise no editorial or programming control. You understand the following:
(a) Third-Party Content providers may restrict or revoke access to their content at any time;
(b) To the extent possible under the governing law, we are not responsible for and have no editorial control over any Third-Party Content; and
(c) xiaovv has no control over the distribution of Third-Party Content.
You agree that we will have no liability to you or anyone else who uses your xiaovv System with regard to any Third-Party Content. You also agree and declare that any and all Third-Party Content accessed or transferred using the xiaovv Services is for personal, non-commercial use and that the xiaovv Services will not be used to illegally copy, illegally display, or otherwise make illegal use of Third-Party Content. Generally, authorization from the appropriate rights holder is needed prior to displaying, using, or copying Third-Party Content. Unauthorized copying or distribution of copyrighted works may constitute an infringement of the copyright holders' rights.
We may terminate the accounts of users of any xiaovv service or software who infringe the copyrights, trademarks, or intellectual property rights of others. In addition, steps intended to defeat or bypass security measures designed to prevent intellectual property infringement may be illegal under U.S. law or comparable foreign laws. We may terminate the xiaovv accounts of users who develop or use methods to defeat or bypass such security measures and may take any other necessary or appropriate action to prevent infringement of intellectual property holders' rights.
5. Changes to your xiaovv Service
To the extent possible under the governing law, we may, at our discretion and without notice or user permission, change, add, or remove features and functionality of the xiaovv Services. If you are dissatisfied with any material changes to the xiaovv Services during a subscription, you may immediately terminate your use of the xiaovv Services and be entitled to a pro-rated refund of any of your paid for, but unused, subscription. We are under no obligation to provide any or all features and functionality to your xiaovv System and may, at our discretion, discontinue the provision of software updates to certain xiaovv Systems. Because different xiaovv Systems may support different features and functionality, the level of service we provide may not be the same for each xiaovv System.
6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH AGREEING TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND ARE THEREFORE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
BINDING ARBITRATION. To the extent possible under your local law, both you and the Company agree to arbitrate any and all disputes or claims out of or relating to this Agreement, any xiaovv Services, or your relationship to xiaovv. All disputes concerning whether a claim is subject to arbitration (including disputes about the interpretation, breach, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of this Agreement) shall be decided by the arbitrator. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury to resolve claims. Arbitration is less formal than a traditional court proceeding and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts.
EXCEPTIONS TO ARBITRATION. Not withstanding the foregoing, each party will have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator. For all purposes of this Agreement, for any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the United States Federal Courts located in the Northern District of California.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. The parties agree that they both give up the right to a jury trial, and that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit: CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER ARE OPTIONAL. You may decline or opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by sending written and signed notice to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) calendar days of agreeing to these Terms.

Any liability for negligence is limited to direct losses usually and typically foreseeable in such case. Should the claim for damages be based on willful or grossly negligent breach of contractual duty or obligation on the part of xiaovv, the preclusion and limitation of liability mentioned in the preceding sentences will not apply. The preceding preclusion and limitation of liability will also not apply to claims for damages arising out of loss of life, bodily injury, or health impacts for which the Company may be liable, or for non-contractual liability.
