  1. USE OF HEADSETS

You understand and acknowledge that there are certain health and safety risks associated with the use of virtual reality headsets (“Headsets”) and that by using those Headsets, you are assuming those risks.  Please consult your Headset documentation for such risks or visit the manufacturer’s/supplier’s website.

BOULEVARD, NOT BEING THE SUPPLIER OR MANUFACTURER OF THE HEADSETS OR THE SUPPLIER’S OR MANUFACTURER’S AGENT, MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO ANY HEADSETS AND DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH WARRANTIES THAT MIGHT OTHERWISE EXIST.  BOULEVARD EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY ARISING FROM SUCH MANUFACTURERS’ AND/OR SUPPLIERS’ ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY HEADSETS AND/OR YOUR USE THEREOF.

You agree to comply with any and all health and safety-related best practices (and all updates thereto) that may be provided by the manufacturers and/or suppliers of the Headsets.

  1. PAYMENT

You may make Transactions through the Platform, in which case the terms of this Section shall apply with respect to such Transaction.  You may also make certain transactions through third-party distribution platforms, such as Samsung and Oculus, in which case their terms shall apply with respect to such transaction.

As consideration for any Transactions you make on the Platform, you shall pay Boulevard all applicable fees and taxes.  Our third-party payment processor shall authorize your credit card, bank account, or other approved payment facility you provided during the registration process for the full payment of the fees and any applicable taxes, and you hereby consent to the same.  If the mailing address you provided us is in the United States, all payments will be charged and made in U.S. dollars.  If the mailing address you provided us is outside the United States or any of its possessions or territories, all payments will be charged and made in your local currency.

You must provide current, complete, and accurate billing and credit card information.  You must promptly update all Billing Information (such as billing address, card number, and expiration date) to keep your account current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact us if your credit card is lost or stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security, such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your Sign-In Name or Password (as defined below).  You hereby authorize our third-party payment processor to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for your credit card in the event that the credit card you provided us expires.  We reserve the right for our third-party payment processor to charge any renewal card issued to you to the same extent as the expired card.  If payment is not received from your credit card issuer, you hereby agree to pay all amounts due upon demand.  You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance.  In certain instances, the issuer of your credit card may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you will be responsible to pay.  You are advised to check with your bank and credit card issuer for details.

  1. SIGN-IN NAME; PASSWORD; UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS

If a User does not log in to the Platform using a third-party login provider (e.g., Facebook), such User will be prompted to create an account, which includes a sign-in name (“Sign-In Name”), a password (“Password”), and perhaps certain additional information that will assist in authenticating the person’s identity when he or she logs-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”).  When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information.  Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one User.  You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Platform using one or more of them.  You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a Password or Sign-In Name, or change any Unique Identifier.  We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action.  Boulevard will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any unauthorized use of your account.

  1. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

If you violate any part of this Agreement, your permission to access and/or use the Content and the Platform automatically terminates and you must immediately destroy any copies you have made of the Content.

The trademarks, service marks, and logos of Boulevard (the “Boulevard Trademarks”) used and displayed on the Platform are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of Boulevard.  Other company, product, and service names located on the Services may be trademarks or service marks owned by others (the “Third-Party Trademarks,” and, collectively with the Boulevard Trademarks, the “Trademarks”).  Nothing on the Platform should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use the Trademarks, without our prior written permission specific for each such use.  Use of the Trademarks as part of a link to or from any site is prohibited unless establishment of such a link is approved in advance by us in writing.  All goodwill generated from the use of Boulevard Trademarks inures to our benefit.

Elements of the Platform are protected by trade dress, trademark, unfair competition, and other state and federal laws and may not be copied or imitated in whole or in part, by any means, including but not limited to the use of framing or mirrors.  None of the Content may be retransmitted without our express, written consent for each and every instance.

  1. BINDING ARBITRATION

In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement, the Platform, the Services, or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”).  Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL. DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.  All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA.  Any court in New York, New York may enforce the arbitrator’s award.  The arbitration shall be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, if applicable, or otherwise pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules (the “JAMS Rules”).  Such disputes will be resolved by the arbitrator as determined under the JAMS Rules.  The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in New York, New York.  The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.  In addition, Boulevard may litigate in court to seek injunctive relief.

YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
