HAPPIEST BABY, INC.
TERMS OF SERVICE
Updated December 29, 2020
In these Terms, when we refer to "HBI", "we", "us" or "our", we are referring to Happiest Baby, Inc. with registered address of 3115 South La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90016, which is also our main trading address; Phone number +44 808 164 4528; Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The App publication director is Dr. Harvey Karp.
These terms of service (“Terms”) govern your use of our mobile application (“App”) and the services made available via the App and our products ("Products") (together “Services"). This is a legal agreement between you and HBI, so please read these Terms carefully.
By clicking “Submit” to these Terms when installing the App, you expressly agree to, and consent to be bound by, these Terms. You guarantee that you are of sufficient legal age in your jurisdiction or residence to use or access the services, and that you have the right, authority, and capacity to accept and agree to these Terms. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, OR DISAGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, PLEASE STOP USING THE SERVICES IMMEDIATELY.
2. OTHER TERMS
These Terms govern your use of the Services. Your purchase of one of our Products is governed by the applicable Terms of Sale for such Product. We also provide a limited warranty for many of our Products ("Limited Warranty"). If there is a conflict or inconsistency between those documents and these Terms, the Terms of Sale or Limited Warranty will take precedence over these Terms. The software in our Products ("Product Software") is separately licensed and governed by the applicable End User License Agreement (“EULA”). Again, if there is a conflict or inconsistency between the EULA and these Terms, the EULA will take precedence over these Terms.
3. REGISTRATION / ACCOUNTS
To use the Services, you must register for a user account (“Account”) and provide certain information about you, as prompted by the applicable registration form. All required registration information you submit must be truthful and accurate, and you must maintain the accuracy of such information, including your correct email address, so we may send you notifications and other account-related communication.
For German residents: By sending off the registration form, you submit a binding offer to conclude a contract to use the Services. Our provision of the registration form does not yet constitute a binding offer. The contract is only concluded when you activate your Account.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the login name and password that you create. You agree to use strong passwords (e.g. that contain upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols). You are responsible for all uses of your account and login information, whether or not authorized by you (except where any unauthorized use is our fault). You agree to notify us as soon as you can of any unauthorized use of your account, login information or password, and you should immediately change your password to prevent further unauthorized use. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements (except where any unauthorized use is our fault).
The individual who creates an Account is considered to be the “Owner” of the Products associated with that Account and is the “Owner” of that Account. Individuals who are authorized by the Owner to access an Owner’s Products and Services are “Authorized Users.” These Terms apply to all uses of the Services by Authorized Users. Authorized Users may have the ability to use the Services and monitor and control the Products via our App, website or Services. Authorized Users may also have the ability to view information and content across the Owner’s Products and Services. Authorized Users are responsible for their own actions in connection with the Products and Services, but the Owner also agrees to be fully responsible for all actions taken by Authorized Users relating to the Owner’s Account and Products and related Services. If you are an Owner, you should authorize only those individuals that you trust to access your Account, Products, and Services. If you are asked to become an Authorized User and do not wish to be bound by these Terms, please decline the invitation and do not use the Services.
4. TERM & TERMINATION
These Terms remain in effect until they are terminated in accordance with the provisions of these Terms. You may stop using our Services any time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your rights to access or use the Services at any time if you break these Terms (provided that we will give reasonable notice of any suspension or termination, except if not legally possible). For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Services. We may also change or replace or remove at any time any features currently offered as part of the Services, or the Services themselves – however, we will only do that where we are making improvements, and will not do this where it detracts from the Services you are currently receiving.
Upon termination of these Terms, your Account and right to use the Services will automatically terminate. If you transfer a Product to a new owner, your right to use the Services with respect to that Product automatically terminates, and the new owner will have no right to use the Product or Services under your Account. The provisions of Sections 5(d), 6(b), 6(e), 6(h) and 7-13 and any other provisions of these Terms which by their nature or effect are required or intended to be observed by you after termination of these Terms will survive the termination and remain binding on you.

We will do our best to resolve any disputes over these Terms.
These Terms, their subject matter and its formation, are governed by English law, except if you are a French resident (then French law applies) or a German resident (then German law applies). However, if you are a consumer and resident of any other European Union country you will benefit from mandatory provisions of, and legal rights available to you under, the laws of that country. Nothing in these Terms affects your rights as a consumer to rely on these local law mandatory provisions and legal rights.
You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a consumer and resident of any other country you and we may also bring proceedings in that country. For clarity, if you are a French resident, you can always bring proceedings in front of French competent courts, and if you are a German resident, you can always bring proceedings in front of German competent courts.
