Welcome to Neura! We truly hope you’ll enjoy the value Neura delivers. Neura enables third-party products that have integrated our technology (“Neura-Enabled Product(s)”) to deliver a personalized experience and functionality to you based on your behavior, habits and activity. By using a Neura-Enabled Product or by activating the Neura services upon request within a Neura-Enabled Product, the user of that Neura-Enabled Product (“User”, “you”, or “your”) enables Neura to collect information about you such as, but not limited to location, motion and activity (collectively, “Raw Data”) through one or more of your devices (primarily, but not limited to a mobile phone, each a “Device”), which we process and analyze through our proprietary system and data algorithms to turn it into meaningful knowledge (e.g., understanding when you run, drive, or are at home) (collectively, “User Insights”) and then make certain portions of the User Insights (e.g., behavioral insights), for which a Neura-Enabled Product has subscribed and for certain portions of the User Insights you have also given your permission (“Permission”), available to the respective Neura-Enabled Product so it can personalize its functionality to you (our actions collectively, including providing our website, our “Services”).

 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE NEURA SERVICES.

This Agreement shall apply to all Neura Services with respect to your interaction with any Neura-Enabled Product, inclusive of the initial Neura-Enabled Product and any other Neura-Enabled Products in which you subsequently activate the Neura Services.  If you do not accept and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you may not use the Neura Services.  For any questions, please contact us at info@theneura.com.

  • Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to access, use or connect any Device to our Service or grant any Permission for a Neura-Enabled Product. If you are not yet 18 years old, your parent or legal guardian must enter into this Agreement on your behalf.
  • You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the full and unrestricted power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out the actions contemplated hereby; (ii) there is no legal reason why you should be prevented or restricted from using the Services; and (iii) your actions hereunder do not and shall not conflict with or result in a breach of any other agreement or any judgment, order, or decree by which you are bound.

The way User Insights are shared is further described in our Privacy Policy.
  • You may be required to create login credentials (“Credentials”) for your Neura Account and/or the Neura-Enabled Product activation process.

ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE ONLY TO OUR USERS. IT REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION OF ALL DISPUTES WITH US, EXCEPT FOR THOSE THAT INVOLVE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY DISPUTES AND EXCEPT THOSE THAT CAN BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. THIS MEANS YOU ARE WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO HAVE SUCH DISPUTES RESOLVED IN COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY. THIS SECTION ALSO LIMITS THE TIME YOU HAVE TO START AN ARBITRATION OR, IF PERMISSIBLE, A COURT ACTION. FINALLY, THIS SECTION WAIVES YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE SUCH DISPUTE HEARD AND RESOLVED AS A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR A REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.

  • Excluded Dispute” means any Dispute relating to the enforcement or infringement of your or our Intellectual Property Rights (such as copyrights, trademarks, domains, logos, trade dress, trade secrets, and patents). For clarity and notwithstanding the foregoing, those Disputes relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connected with your rights of privacy and publicity are not Excluded Disputes.
  • The United States Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 14, including any question whether a Dispute between us and you are subject to arbitration.
  • Both parties agree to waive the right to a trial by judge or jury for all Disputes, except for the Excluded Disputes. Both parties agree that all Disputes (except for the Excluded Disputes), including those relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with your rights of privacy and publicity, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration. Both parties agree not to combine a Dispute that is subject to arbitration under this Agreement with a Dispute that is not eligible for arbitration under this Agreement.
  • The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is started, including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (together, the “AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be presided over by a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The AAA Rules, information regarding initiating a Dispute, and a description of the arbitration process are available at www.adr.org. The arbitrator will decide whether a Dispute can be arbitrated. The location of the arbitration and the allocation of fees and costs for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules. Notwithstanding the AAA Rules, we will reimburse you for all the AAA administrative fees in Disputes that are subject to the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, unless the arbitrator determines that a Dispute was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous.
  • You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither party can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing postmarked within thirty (30) days of the later of: (i) the date that you first accepted this Agreement; and (ii) the date you became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt-out:

Neura, Inc.
102 Persian Drive, Suite 203
Sunnyvale, CA 94089

  • You must include: (1) your name and residence address; (2) the mobile phone number associated with your Neura Account; and (3) a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Agreement’s requirement to arbitrate.
  • As an alternative to arbitration, if permitted by your local “small claims” court’s rules, you may bring a Dispute in his/her local “small claims” court, as long as the matter advances on an individual (non-class) basis.
  • Both parties agree that for any Dispute (except for the Excluded Disputes) we and you must commence an arbitration proceeding within one (1) year after the Dispute first arose; otherwise, such Dispute is permanently barred. This means that if we or you do not commence an arbitration within one (1) year after the Dispute first arose, then the arbitration will be dismissed because it was started too late.
  • Both parties may bring Disputes against the other only on our or your own behalf, and not on behalf of any other person or entity, or any class of people. Both parties agree not to participate in a class action, a class-wide arbitration, Disputes brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated Disputes involving any other person or entity in connection with any Dispute.
  • If the prohibition against class actions and other Disputes brought on behalf of third parties is found to be unenforceable for a Dispute, then all of the provisions above under the caption “Arbitration” will be null and void as to that Dispute.
  • If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, if your Dispute is an Excluded Dispute, or if the arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, you agree to be subject to the provisions regarding Dispute resolution set forth in Section 13.6 above.
