PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 15.B (THE “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION IN SECTION 15.C (THE “CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER”) THAT REQUIRE, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT PURSUANT TO THE INSTRUCTIONS IN SECTION 15.B, THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND REV, INCLUDING ANY CLAIMS THAT AROSE OR WERE ASSERTED BEFORE YOU AGREED TO THESE TERMS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are between you (“you,” “your,” “Customer” (with respect to a business, organization or other legal entity) or “User” (with respect to an individual)) and Rev.com, Inc. (“Rev,” “we,” “our” or “us”) and govern your use of the Services procured through the Rev.com website (the “Site”) and related desktop or mobile applications (each, an “App,” and collectively with the Site, the “Platform”). As used in these Terms, “Services” means Rev’s transcription, captioning, translation, automated speech recognition (“ASR”) and related hosting and other services, including technical support and other services specific to Rev’s and our affiliates’ products and services.
These Terms, any Order Forms (as defined in Section 3.A (Orders for Services) below), and any policies, conditions and disclaimers referenced in these Terms or otherwise required to access certain features of the Services (the “Additional Terms”) form the “Agreement” between you and us with respect to the Services. If there is a conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control with respect to the specific feature. In the Agreement, the words “include” and “including” will not be construed as terms of limitation.
Changes to these Terms We may update these Terms from time to time. If we materially update any portion of these Terms, we will notify you, at the email address provided in your Account profile, or other reasonable means (for example, by posting a notice on the Site). We will also post the updated Terms on the Platform. Your renewal of your Term (or, for Services without a set Term, your ongoing use of the Services) after we publish or send a notice about changes to these Terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms.
Users. Users must register an account on the Platform (an “Account”) to access certain features of the Services. Users agree to: (a) not share your Account or transfer any part of it to anyone else; (b) provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and keep your Account up-to-date; and (c) keep your password secure and confidential. You agree to notify Rev immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account and are responsible for anything that happens through your Account. Rev is not liable for any losses by any party caused by an unauthorized use of your Account. You agree to keep your contact and billing information (including but not limited to email address) up-to-date, and to comply with all billing procedures, including providing and maintaining accurate and lawful billing information on your Account.
Account Access. Customer is responsible for ensuring that access to and use of the Services comports with any limits stated in the applicable Order Form, including by (a) protecting all authentication keys and access tokens for the Services, as applicable, in accordance with the usage limitations; (b) prohibiting access to or use of the Services by anyone other than authorized Users; and (c) ensuring that the authentication keys or access tokens are used solely as necessary to exercise your rights granted under the Agreement. Customer is responsible and liable to Rev for all activity that occurs with the authentication keys, access tokens or otherwise through or in connection with your Account, including any associated User Accounts.
Provision of the Services
Orders for Services. Services may be procured through the Services interface (or in some cases, via a mutually-executed order form) (each mechanism for procuring Services, an “Order Form”). During the Term (as defined in Section 8.A (Term and Renewal) below), Rev grants you a revocable, nonexclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, limited license to (a) access and use the Services described in the applicable Order Form solely in accordance with any usage or license limitations set forth in the Agreement, including the Order Form; (b) install, run and use the Apps on a device that you own and control, in executable, machine-readable, object code form only; and (c) access any and all documentation related to the Services that Rev may make available from time to time (the “Documentation”) internally and solely in connection with your authorized use of the Services. You agree that your execution of an Order Form is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Rev regarding future functionality or features.
Fees. Fees for Services (“Fees”) are payable by credit card or other payment method permitted by us from time to time, in U.S. dollars (unless another currency is specified in the Order Form), and you authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for all fees payable during the Term as set forth in your Order Form (which includes, for subscription Services, at the start of the applicable billing period specified in your Order Form). You represent and warrant to Rev that all payment information you provide is accurate and that you are authorized to use the applicable payment instrument. You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party. Except as otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form, Fees for the Term are non-refundable, including in the event of a suspension or termination pursuant to Section 8.B (Termination or Suspension) below, and may only be used for future Services. Customer is responsible for any wire transfer fees.
Invoicing. Rev may choose to bill through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Rev thirty (30) days after the mailing date of the invoice, or the Services may be suspended. Unpaid invoices are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower. If you dispute any charges you must provide written notification to Rev within thirty (30) days after the date that Rev invoices you, or such charges shall be deemed valid and due.
Usage Limitations. The Services may be subject to certain additional limitations, such as, for example, (a) limits on the number of Users per Customer Account; (b) limits to named (not concurrent) devices or persons; or (c) limits on content storage capacity. We reserve the right to charge or invoice you for any additional usage (including to upgrade you to a higher Services tier for your then-current usage, as applicable), on a prorated basis, commencing on the first day of the month of the Term in which the usage exceeded the applicable limit or, for Services without a set Term, immediately upon overage of the applicable limit).You are responsible for all taxes, duties or other fees imposed, assessed or collected by or under the authority of any governmental body (“Taxes”) imposed on the transaction or the delivery of Services (except Taxes based on our net income), and acknowledge and agree that the amount billed under your Order Form may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your billing plan at the time of renewal (in accordance with this Agreement) or changes in Taxes, and you authorize us (or payment processor, as applicable) to charge your payment method for the changed amounts. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for payment for any Services performed because of an accidental duplicative upload of Your Content.
Services Updates. Your use of the Services includes the right to access all functionality available in the Services to which you subscribed in the Order Form, on the effective date of such Order Form. Rev may enhance and modify the Services and introduce new Services from time to time but will not make changes to the Services that materially reduce the functionality you purchased for the Term if a set Term applies to your Services. We reserve the right to change Rev's prices at any time without notice. Rev’s pricing will be reflected on the Platform, and your continued use of the Service after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount; provided, however, that if pricing modifications would negatively impact your then-current Term, e.g., for a subscription-based offering, these modifications will not apply to you until the start of the renewal Term, if any. To the extent Rev makes available any new or different features, functionality or enhancements to the Services, Rev may market these separately and may require the payment of additional fees. You agree that Rev will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification of the Services in keeping with this section.
Additional Terms for Apps. To use an App to access the Services, you must have a mobile device that is compatible with the applicable App. We do not warrant that an App will be compatible with your mobile device. You may use mobile data in connection with the Apps and may incur additional charges from your wireless provider for these services. You agree that you are solely responsible for any such charges (subject to your App settings impacting mobile data usage). You acknowledge that we may from timetotime issue upgraded versions of the Apps and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the App that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device and agree that these Terms will apply to all such upgrades.
Apps from Apple App Store. The following applies to any Apps you acquire from the Apple App Store (“Apple-Sourced Software”): You acknowledge and agree that these Terms are solely between you and Rev, not Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and that Apple has no responsibility for the Apple-Sourced Software or content thereof. Your use of the Apple-Sourced Software must comply with the App Store Terms of Service. You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Apple-Sourced Software. In the event of any failure of the Apple-Sourced Software to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the Apple-Sourced Software to you; to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Apple-Sourced Software, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by these Terms and any law applicable to Rev as provider of the software. You acknowledge that Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims of you or any third party relating to the Apple-Sourced Software or your possession and/or use of the Apple-Sourced Software, including, but not limited to: (a) product liability claims; (b) any claim that the Apple-Sourced Software fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation; and all such claims are governed solely by these Terms and any law applicable to Rev as provider of the software. You acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the Apple-Sourced Software or your possession and use of that Apple-Sourced Software infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Rev, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms. You and Rev acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms as relates to your license of the Apple-Sourced Software, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as relates to your license of the Apple-Sourced Software against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
Governing Law. You agree that: (a) the Services will be deemed solely based in Texas; and (b) the Services will be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Texas. This Agreement will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration Agreement in Section 15.B (Arbitration) and preempts all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA is found to not apply to any issue that arises from or relates to the Arbitration Agreement, then that issue will be resolved under and governed by the law of your state of residence. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the city of Austin and in Travis County, Texas for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in Section 15.B (Arbitration) below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Travis County, Texas is the proper and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM REV. This Section 15.B (the “Arbitration Agreement”) applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and Rev that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) this Agreement, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of the Services, including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (c) any transactions through, by, or using the Services; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with Rev, directly or indirectly, as a consumer (“Claim” or collectively, “Claims”). The Arbitration Agreement will apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your agreement to this Agreement. If you are a new Rev user, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement within thirty (30) days of accepting this Agreement by emailing Rev at email@example.com with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Note that opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect any other part of this Agreement, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought. For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Rev has not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement will control. AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available. The arbitration will be conducted in Austin, Texas, unless you and Rev agree otherwise. If you are using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Rev agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator will also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Agreement, or any provision of the Agreement, is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel. Nothing in this Section will be deemed as: preventing Rev from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights; or preventing you from asserting claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances on only an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, will be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, will have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Agreement, which will remain in force, or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement will be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AND REV AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER REV USERS. YOU AND REV FURTHER AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND REV ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER.
