PhotoDay is based in the United States; as such, we provide the Digital Services for use only by persons located in the United States. We make no claims that the Digital Services or any of its Content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to the Digital Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Digital Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
PhotoDay offers a mobile messaging program as an option to users (the “Program”), where, if you opt-in to the Program, you agree to these Terms and to receive marketing text messages from us or from photographers and studios that use our Digital Services. The Program is optional and not a condition of purchase. The Program allows Users to receive SMS/MMS mobile messages by voluntarily and affirmatively opting into the Program, such as through online or application-based enrollment forms. The messages we send to you include marketing and promotional messages and messaging frequency may vary. You must have a wireless device of your own, capable of two-way messaging, be using a participating wireless carrier, and be a wireless service subscriber with text messaging service. Not all cellular phone providers carry the necessary service to participate. Check your phone capabilities for specific text messaging instructions.
Regardless of the opt-in method you utilized to join the Program, you agree that these Terms apply to your participation in the Program. By participating in the Program, you agree to receive autodialed or prerecorded marketing mobile messages at the phone number associated with your opt-in, and you understand that consent is not required to make any purchase through the Digital Services. While you consent to receive messages sent using an autodialer, the foregoing shall not be interpreted to suggest or imply that any or all of PhotoDay’s mobile messages are sent using an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS” or “autodialer”). Message and data rates may apply. Please consult your mobile service carrier’s pricing plan to determine the charges for browsing data and sending and receiving mobile messages. Under no circumstances will we be responsible for any messaging or wireless charges incurred by you or by a person that has access to your wireless device or telephone number.
SMS/MMS MOBILE MESSAGING OPT-OUT: If you do not wish to continue participating in the Program, you agree to reply STOP, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, or QUIT to any mobile message from PhotoDay in order to opt out of the Program. You may receive an additional mobile message confirming your decision to opt out. You understand and agree that the foregoing options are the only reasonable methods of opting out. You also understand and agree that any other method of opting out, including, but not limited to, texting words other than those set forth above or verbally requesting that we remove you from our list, is not a reasonable means of opting out.
DUTY TO NOTIFY AND INDEMNIFY REGARDING SMS/MMS MOBILE MESSAGING: If at any time you intend to stop using the mobile telephone number that has been used to subscribe to the Program, including canceling your service plan or selling or transferring the phone number to another party, you agree that you will complete the opt-out process set forth above prior to ending your use of the mobile telephone number. You understand and agree that your agreement to do so is a material part of these terms and conditions. You further agree that, if you discontinue the use of your mobile telephone number without notifying us of such change, you agree that you will be responsible for all costs (including attorneys’ fees) and liabilities incurred by us, or any party that assists in the delivery of the mobile messages, as a result of claims brought by individual(s) who are later assigned that mobile telephone number. This duty and agreement shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to participate in any of our Programs.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND, AND HOLD US HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIM OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM YOUR FAILURE TO NOTIFY US OF A CHANGE IN THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED, INCLUDING ANY CLAIM OR LIABILITY UNDER THE TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq., OR SIMILAR STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS, AND ANY REGULATIONS PROMULGATED THEREUNDER RESULTING FROM US ATTEMPTING TO CONTACT YOU AT THE MOBILE TELEPHONE NUMBER YOU PROVIDED.
Without limiting the scope of the Program, users that opt into the Program can expect to receive messages concerning the marketing and sale of digital and physical products, services, and events. Message and data rates may apply. The Program involves recurring mobile messages, and additional mobile messages may be sent periodically based on your interaction with us. For support regarding the Program, text “HELP” to the number you received messages from or email us at support@PhotoDay.io Opt outs should be submitted in accordance with the procedures set forth above. The Program is offered on an "as-is" basis and may not be available in all areas at all times and may not continue to work in the event of product, software, coverage or other changes made by your wireless carrier. We will not be liable for any delays or failures in the receipt or delivery of any mobile messages connected with this Program. Delivery of mobile messages is subject to effective transmission from your wireless service provider/network operator and is outside of our control.
We endeavor to comply with all applicable telemarketing laws, including but not limited to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), Florida Telemarketing Act, and Florida Do Not Call Act. For purposes of compliance, you agree that we may assume that you are a resident of a certain state if, at the time of opt-in to Program, (1) your shipping address, as provided, is located in that state or (2) the area code for the phone number used to opt-into the Program is an area code for that state. You agree that the requirements of a state’s telemarketing laws do not apply to you, and you shall not assert that you are resident of that state, if you do not meet either of the foregoing criteria or, in the alternative, do not affirmatively advise us in writing that you are a resident of the state by sending written notice to us. You further agree that mobile messages sent by us in direct response to mobile messages or requests from you (including but not limited to response to keywords, opt-in, help or stop requests, and shipping notifications) shall not constitute a “telephonic sales call” or “commercial telephone solicitation phone call” (e.g., for purposes of Florida Statutes Section 501 (including but not limited to sections 501.059 and 501.616)), “telephone solicitation” (e.g., for purposes of the TCPA and state laws such as the Utah Telephone and Facsimile Solicitation Act and Washington Commercial Telephone Solicitation Act), or an otherwise unsolicited call or message that is subject to a telemarketing law, to the extent such laws are relevant and applicable.
MMS DISCLOSURE: The Program will send SMS TMs (terminating messages) if your mobile device does not support MMS messaging.

You further agree that your Customer Content will not contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene material, or contain any computer virus or other malware that could in any way affect the operation of the Digital Services or any related website. You may not use a false email address, pretend to be someone other than yourself, or otherwise mislead us or third-parties as to the origin of any Customer Content. You are solely responsible for any Customer Content you submit. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Customer Content posted by you or any third-party.
Some features of the Digital Services may now or in the future allow you as the photographer or studio to upload, submit, store, sell, send, or receive content, namely photographs taken by you or your studio and uploaded to the Digital Services (“Studio Content”). You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in the Studio Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours, with the below-defined license going to PhotoDay.

The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving the Digital Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using the Digital Services. Some Digital Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Digital Service. Also, in some of our Digital Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Digital Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Digital Services.

This section deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and we agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
We believe that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Digital Services, (ii) any purchases, transactions or relationships related to your use of the Digital Services, or (iii) any data or information you may provide to us or that we may gather in connection with such use, interaction, purchases, transactions or relationships (collectively, “Transactions or Relationships”), you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Digital Services, or engaging in any other Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.
We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. If those efforts fail, by using the Digital Services, you agree that any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms or any Transactions or Relationships shall be resolved exclusively by final, confidential and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) before a single arbitrator administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “Applicable Rules”). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the “AAA”) instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect that would be applicable to the matter in dispute, we agree to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this section, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this section shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies (that is, a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:
a. Single Arbitrator.
The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and us (the “Arbitrator”).
b. Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement.
The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms or these arbitration provisions, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable.
c. Location of Arbitration.
The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
d. Governing Law.
The Arbitrator (i) shall apply internal laws of the State of Florida consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with Florida or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief.
e. No Class Relief.
The Arbitration can resolve only your or our individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
f. Written Award.
The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets.
g. Arbitration Costs.
In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith.
h. Reasonable Attorney’s Fees.
In the event you recover an Award greater than our last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award our reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but we shall in all events bear our own attorneys’ fees.
i. Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause.
With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitrate any dispute between us and you, and must instead bring any claims subject to subsection (k) below and the Dispute Resolution (Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Applicable Law) section.
j. Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice.
We may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after we have given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from Transactions or Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification. If any modification pursuant to this subpart (j) is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the arbitration provisions effective at the time of your agreement to these Terms shall govern any dispute or disagreement between you and us regarding Transactions or Relationships.
k. Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims.
Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim for damages you have against us in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
l. Confidentiality of Arbitration.
You and we agree to maintain the confidential nature of the Arbitration and shall not disclose the fact of the Arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the Arbitration, the Arbitrator’s decision and the existence or amount of any Award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the Arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to such confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an Award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by applicable law or court order.
Dispute Resolution (Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Applicable Law)
This section applies only where applicable law, as determined by a court with appropriate jurisdiction, prohibits arbitration of disputes in accordance with the previous section regarding arbitration.
If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Digital Services, the Content, these Terms or to any of our actual or alleged intellectual property rights (collectively, a “Non-Arbitration Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Non-Arbitration Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to: support@PhotoDay.io.
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, we and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Non-Arbitration Dispute, though nothing will require either you or us to resolve the Non-Arbitration Dispute on terms with respect to which you and us, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
The parties agree that the state or federal courts in Florida shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Non-Arbitration Dispute.
n. Governing Law.
To the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, these Terms and any Non-Arbitration Dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes), will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the U.S. and the State of Florida without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
o. Injunctive Relief.
The foregoing provisions of this section will not apply to any legal action taken by us to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Digital Services, any Content, your User Contribution or our intellectual property rights (including such as we may claim may be in dispute), our operations, or our products or services.
The failure of PhotoDay to enforce any term or condition set out in these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
By accessing the Digital Services, you agree that the laws of the United States and the state of Florida without regard to conflicts of laws principles, will apply to these Terms and all matters relating to the Digital Services.
Subject to the arbitration provisions above, and other than small claims actions as permitted therein, any action or proceeding arising from, relating to or in connection with these Terms will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Orange County, Florida, and you irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and agree that it is a convenient forum and that you will not seek to transfer such action or proceeding to any other forum or jurisdiction, under the doctrine of forum non conveniens or otherwise.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law that establishes a different statute of limitations, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any claim or cause of action (including any arbitration) arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Digital Services, or these Terms, or other Transactions or Relationships must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
We may provide you information regarding your account and the Digital Services in electronic form only. You agree that such notices and other communications sent electronically satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that requirements must be in writing.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at support@PhotoDay.io.
Although PhotoDay will in most circumstances be able to receive your communications, PhotoDay does not guarantee that it will receive such communications timely and accurately and shall not be legally obligated to read, act on, or respond to any such email or other information. Be aware that your email communications to PhotoDay may not be secure and will not be treated as confidential.
