We endeavour to ensure that Client Messages are processed correctly and delivered by The Application to the applicable network.

The Application transmits and receives text messages via major telecommunications companies and mobile network operators, and thus The Applications influence over the timing of the transmission of your Client Message and broadcasts are within the technical constraints imposed upon The Application. While The Application uses commercially reasonable efforts to transmit your Client Message and broadcasts to the applicable network for final delivery to your designated recipients as fast as possible, The Company cannot commit to, and do not guarantee, a specific maximum delivery time. Such times depend on various network and system-related factors among the various entities involved in the transportation of your Client Message and broadcasts across the public switched telephone network and/or Internet. You should know that communications carriers assign text messages with a default lifetime and any client message or broadcast that cannot be delivered successfully within the lifetime assigned to it will be discarded by the applicable communications carrier without any notice. The Company is not liable for any loss incurred by the failure of a Client Message or broadcast to be delivered, and you acknowledge that damages for financial or other loss resulting from delivery failure cannot be claimed from The Company for any such non-deliveries.

Customers are required to keep a valid credit/debit card on file to charge for recurring monthly or annual subscription fees, SMS or MMS charges or any other service fees.
(b) Subscription billing is based on availability of The Application, not based on usage. However, certain fees may be usage-based such as SMS and MMS usage. Disabled applications will incur monthly subscription fees, regardless of availability of product in the case of a breach of online terms including but not limited to delinquent accounts.
(c) The Customer is responsible for keeping all credit/debit card details and contact information current. This can be done online via 'Settings' in the customer Application account. To access 'Settings', customers should log into The Application, click on "Settings" and then click "My Account".

25. Choice of law, mandatory arbitration and venue
(a) Governing Law / Jurisdiction. Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law, the Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims arising out of or in connection with them) are subject to the laws of New Zealand, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
Further, the Customer and The Company agree to the jurisdiction of the New Zealand High Court to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that arises in connection with the Agreement (and any non-contractual disputes/claims arising out of or in connection with them). In some cases, that jurisdiction will be “exclusive”, meaning that no other countries’ courts can preside over the matter; have jurisdiction; in other cases, the jurisdiction is “non-exclusive”, meaning that other countries’ courts may have jurisdiction as well. The Company does not accept any codes of conduct as mandatory in connection with the services provided under this Agreement.
(b) Class Action Waiver. ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNING LAWS AND JURISDICTION OUTLINED IN 25 (A), THE CUSTOMER AND THE COMPANY 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 ACTION. Unless both The Customer and The Company agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
(c) Arbitration. If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in a jurisdiction in which this Section 25a is enforceable, the following mandatory arbitration provisions apply to you:
(d) Dispute resolution and arbitration. The Customer and The Company agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between the Customer and The Company arising in connection with or relating in any way to this Agreement or to your relationship with The Company as a user of The Application (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.
(e) Exceptions. Notwithstanding clause (25d) above, the Customer and The Company both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in small claims court, (2) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (3) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (4) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
(f) Arbitration rules. Either the Customer or The Company may start arbitration proceedings. Any arbitration between you and The Company will be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre (the “NZDRG”) then in force (the “NZDRG Rules”) by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the NZFRG Rules, as modified by these Agreements, and will be administered by the New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre. Any arbitration will be conducted in the English language. The law to be applied in any arbitration shall be the law of the New Zealand, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
(g) Time for filing. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
(h) Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail, or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). The Company's address for Notice is: MOBIT Technologies Ltd, Attn: General Counsel, P.O Box 300548 Albany, AUCKLAND 0632, NEW ZEALAND. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand").
We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, the Customer or The Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by the Customer or The Company shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. In the event our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, The Company shall pay you (1) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, (2) the last written settlement amount offered by The Company in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (3) USD$1,000.00, whichever is greater. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law. Except as required to enforce the arbitrator’s decision and award, neither the Customer nor The Company shall make any public announcement or public comment or originate any publicity concerning the arbitration, including, but not limited to, the fact that the parties are in dispute, the existence of the arbitration, or any decision or award of the arbitrator.
(i) Modifications. In the event that The Company makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to The Company’s address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to The Companies address for Notice, in which case your Application account with The Company shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, shall survive.
(j) Enforceability. If the class action waiver at Section 24b is found to be unenforceable in arbitration or if any part of this Section 24c is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 25c shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 25a shall govern any action arising out of or related to the Agreements.
The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for hereunder will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
No agency, partnership, joint venture or employment relationship is created as a result of the Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind The Company in any respect whatsoever.
The Agreement shall constitute the complete agreement between the parties. No terms and conditions stated in or attached to your communications to The Company are applicable to the Agreement in any way and are not to be considered your exceptions to the provisions of the Agreement.
All notices required hereunder shall be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given: (a) when received, if personally delivered; (b) when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; (c) the day after they are sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service; and (d) upon receipt, if sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. The Company may give notice to you by means of a general notice posted by and through The Application, electronic mail to your e-mail address on record in The Company’s Account information, or by written communication sent by personal delivery, fax, overnight courier, or certified or registered mail to your address on record with The Company.
