SECTION 24 - SMS/MMS MOBILE MESSAGE MARKETING PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Sama is offering a mobile messaging program (the “Program”). By opting into or participating in our Program, you accept and agree to the terms set forth in this Section 24 and you agree to resolve any disputes with us through binding, individual-only arbitration, as detailed in “Dispute Resolution” set forth in Section 25 below (collectively, the “SMS Agreement”).  This SMS Agreement is limited to the Program and is not intended to modify the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy that may govern the relationship between you and us in other contexts.

User Opt In: The Program allows users to receive SMS/MMS mobile messages by affirmatively opting into the Program, such as through online or application-based enrollment forms. Regardless of the opt-in method you utilized to join the Program, you agree that this SMS Agreement applies 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 from us. 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 Our mobile messages are sent using an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS” or “autodialer”). Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency varies. 

User Opt Out: If you do not wish to continue participating in the Program or no longer agree to this SMS Agreement, you agree to reply STOP, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, or QUIT to any mobile message from us 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 one of our employees to remove you from our list, is not a reasonable means of opting out.

Program Description: Without limiting the scope of the Program, users that opt into the Program can expect to receive messages concerning the marketing and sale of Sama products. Messages may include checkout reminders.

Cost and Frequency: Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency varies. The Program involves recurring mobile messages, and additional mobile messages may be sent periodically based on your interaction with Us.

Support Instructions: For support regarding the Program, text “HELP” to the number you received messages from or email us at support@samatea.com. Please note that the use of this email address is not an acceptable method of opting out of the Program. Opt-outs must be submitted in accordance with the procedures set forth above.

MMS Disclosure: The Program will send SMS TMs (terminating messages) if your mobile device does not support MMS messaging.

Our Disclaimer of Warranty: 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 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. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered mobile messages.

Participant Requirements: 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.

Age Restriction: You may not use or engage with the Program if you are under eighteen (18) years of age. By using or engaging with the Program, you acknowledge and agree that you are not under the age of eighteen (18). By using or engaging with the Program, you also acknowledge and agree that you are permitted by your jurisdiction’s applicable law to use and/or engage with the Program.

Prohibited Content: You acknowledge and agree to not send any prohibited content over the Program. Prohibited content includes:

-  Any fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, scandalous, threatening, harassing, or stalking activity;

-  Objectionable content, including profanity, obscenity, lasciviousness, violence, bigotry, hatred, and discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age;

-  Any other content that is prohibited by applicable law in the jurisdiction from which the message is sent.

Miscellaneous: You warrant and represent to us that you have all necessary rights, power, and authority to agree to this SMS Agreement and perform your obligations hereunder, and nothing contained in this Agreement or in the performance of such obligations will place you in breach of any other contract or obligation. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this SMS Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this SMS Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any new features, changes, updates or improvements of the Program shall be subject to this SMS Agreement unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We reserve the right to change this SMS Agreement from time to time. Any updates to this SMS Agreement shall be communicated to you. You acknowledge your responsibility to review this SMS Agreement from time to time and to be aware of any such changes. By continuing to participate in the Program after any such changes, you accept this SMS Agreement, as modified.

ALL PARTIES WAIVE THE RIGHT, IF ANY, TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR ANY OTHER AMOUNT FOR THE PURPOSE OR IMPOSING A PENALTY FROM THE OTHER IN ANY ARBITRATION OR JUDICIAL PROCEEDING OR OTHER ADJUDICATION ARISING OUT OF OR WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, OR ANY BREACH HEREOF, INCLUDING ANY CLAIM THAT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, OR ANY PART HEREOF, IS INVALID, ILLEGAL OR OTHERWISE VOIDABLE OR VOID. IN ADDITION TO ALL OTHER RELIEF, THE ARBITRATOR WILL HAVE THE POWER TO AWARD REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES TO THE PREVAILING PARTY. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED WITHOUT INCLUDING ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES INCLUDED AS PARTIES TO THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, BE IT AS INDIVIDUALS, AS PART OF A COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR AS PART OF A REPRESENTATIVE CLASS, UNLESS ALL PARTIES TO THE ARBITRATION AGREE TO SUCH CONSOLIDATION AFTER A DISPUTE HAS ARISEN. IF ANY PROVISION OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WILL BE UNLAWFUL, VOID OR FOR ANY REASON UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THAT PROVISION WILL BE DEEMED SEVERABLE FROM THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND WILL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY AND ENFORCEABILITY OF ANY REMAINING PROVISIONS. OUR FAILURE TO ENFORCE ANY PROVISION OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WILL NOT BE DEEMED A WAIVER OF SUCH PROVISION NOR THE RIGHT TO ENFORCE SUCH PROVISION.

Class Action Waiver

BOTH YOU AND YOUR AFFILIATES, ON ONE HAND, AND SAMA AND ITS AFFILIATES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ITS 100.CO CO-BRANDED OPERATORS) ON THE OTHER HAND, AGREE THAT ANY CLAIMS OR CONTROVERSIES BETWEEN OR AMONG US MUST BE BROUGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY. THAT MEANS NEITHER YOU AND YOUR AFFILIATES ON ONE HAND NOR SAMA AND ITS AFFILIATES ON THE OTHER HAND CAN BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT COMBINE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR ENTITY’S CLAIMS INTO A SINGLE CASE, AND CANNOT PRESIDE OVER ANY CONSOLIDATED, CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (UNLESS ALL PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE). AND, THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION OR AWARD IN ONE PERSON’S OR ENTITY’S CASE CAN ONLY IMPACT THE PERSON OR ENTITY THAT BROUGHT THE CLAIM, NOT OTHER SAMA USERS, CUSTOMERS OR PARTNERS, AND CANNOT BE USED TO DECIDE OTHER DISPUTES WITH OTHER USERS, CUSTOMERS OR PARTNERS. THE ARBITRATOR DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO VARY THESE CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS. HOWEVER, IF FOR ANY REASON ANY COURT WITH COMPETENT JURISDICTION HOLDS THAT THIS RESTRICTION IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN OUR AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION 25 TO ARBITRATE WILL NOT APPLY AND THE DISPUTE MUST BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN THE STATE AND/OR FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, AND ALL PARTIES CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS FOR SUCH PURPOSE.
