Term and Termination
These Terms shall commence when you first visit thunkable.com or use any feature of the Services, and shall apply to all of your subsequent visits and uses. Thunkable may, at its sole discretion, terminate your access to and use of the Services, with or without cause, immediately, and without notice.

In addition, we may permanently remove or otherwise dispose of Your App and your Account unless we receive, no later than thirty (30) days from the effective date of the expiration or termination of the Services or your Account, a written request for delivering the then-most recent back-up of Your App to you. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver the latest back-up of Your App to you within thirty (30) days of our receipt of such a written request. You will be responsible to pay all reasonable expenses incurred by us in returning Your App to you.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this “Dispute Resolution” section, the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Thunkable are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and you and Thunkable each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Thunkable agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Thunkable agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and Thunkable are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.
As limited exceptions to the “Agreement to Arbitrate” section above, (i) we both may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules, and we won’t seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
Injunctive and Declaratory Relief
Except as provided in the “Exceptions” section above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and 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. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
Class Action Waiver
YOU AND THUNKABLE 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, if the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another 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 “Dispute Resolution” section shall be null and void.
With the exception of any of the provisions in “Class Action Waiver” section above, if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Thunkable, Inc. and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Thunkable and you regarding the Services and Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Thunkable's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Thunkable may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Thunkable under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Thunkable's failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Thunkable. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
