DEFINITIONS AND INTERPRETATION
You represent that you are at least thirteen (13) years old, but in any event of a legal age to form a binding contract. Children under the age of thirteen (13) are not permitted to use BREADCRUMB or App. If you are between thirteen (13) and eighteen (18) years old, you must review this Agreement with your parent or guardian.
Pre-Orders. In pre-ordering a BREADCRUMB product directly from Breadcrumb, you understand that you are contributing (that is, making a donation) to a campaign for a product in development and has not yet been manufactured, and that you are not making a purchase (a “Pre-Order“). “Pre-Orders” can be initiated by clicking a button on the homepage of http://Breadcrumbtech.com which redirects to the order completion page. The button may list multiple forms of terminology such as: “ORDER NOW”, “BE THE FIRST TO OWN IT!”, “GET IT BEFORE ANYONE ELSE!”. Regardless of terminology, all orders on the Breadcrumbtech.com website are considered Pre-Orders and the terms and conditions of a Pre-Order apply. Breadcrumb reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject a Pre-Order. If Breadcrumb accepts a Pre-Order, you may be charged immediately for the Pre-Order, and your reward under the Pre-Order will be the number of BREADCRUMB products you pre-ordered. Our estimated shipping date for your BREADCRUMB will be noted on the order page of our online store, but we may be in contact with you nearer the time of estimated shipping to update you about any delays. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that Breadcrumb alone, in its sole discretion, will determine whether it is able to fulfill your reward. If Breadcrumb determines that it is unable to fulfill your reward, then: (a) it will use commercially reasonable efforts to explore if there are reasonable alternative rewards it can provide, but there is no assurance that these will be possible; and (b) both you and Breadcrumb agree that this Agreement (including, but not limited to, the Controlling Law and Dispute Resolution provisions below at Sections 21 and 22) will still apply. If you cancel your Pre-Order, you will not be entitled to any refund. Please contact info@Breadcrumbtech.com for all inquiries about Pre-Orders.
General. Unless stated otherwise, all pricing will be quoted and payable in US Dollars. Breadcrumb will charge the payment method you select at the time of pre-order, and you hereby authorize Breadcrumb to charge the corresponding payment sums to such payment method. If you pay with a credit card, Breadcrumb may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your order to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your order. Your order will only be deemed complete once you have received an order confirmation (not just an order acknowledgement). It is your responsibility to provide accurate billing, contact and shipping information when placing your pre-order (and to cooperate with Breadcrumb in any post-order requests for additional information) in order for Breadcrumb to process and ship your pre-order, and Breadcrumb will have no obligation to make efforts to determine the correct billing, contact or shipping information. Any shipping dates or times provided by Breadcrumb (or a courier) are estimates only and are not guaranteed. The risk of loss of, and damage to, any BREADCRUMB you order, and the responsibility to insure BREADCRUMB, passes to you upon its delivery to you.
Taxes. Except for taxes based on Breadcrumb net income, you are responsible for any and all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges relating to your order, including without limitation VAT, GST, or any other any sales, use, or consumption tax.
In order to purchase BREADCRUMB and download the App you will need to set up an account (“Account“). You must provide accurate and complete information during the registration process, and keep such information up-to-date at all times. You agree to immediately notify Breadcrumb (via an email to info@Breadcrumbtech.com) of any unauthorized use of your Account. You are solely responsible and liable for the security of your computer system or mobile device, as well as all activity on or in your Account (even if such activities were not undertaken by you). Breadcrumb will not be liable for any unauthorized use of your Account.
If you are downloading the App from a third party app-distribution platform (“App Platform“), please be aware that the App Platform may have established usage rules which also govern your use of the App (“Usage Rules“). We specifically refer to the Usage Rules of certain App Platforms below in Annex 1, but other Usage Rules may be applicable depending on where the App has been downloaded from. You represent that, prior to downloading the App from an App Platform, you have had the opportunity to review and understand its Usage Rules, and you warrant that you will comply with its Usage Rules. The Usage Rules that are applicable to your use of the App are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference. You also represent that you are not prohibited by any applicable Usage Rules and/or applicable Law from using the App; if you are unable to make such a representation you are prohibited from downloading or otherwise using the App.

References in this Section 6 (License Restrictions) to “Software” shall be taken to mean (a) the Software, whether in whole or in part; and (b) any Documentation.
You have no obligation to provide us with any feedback, ideas or suggestions concerning BREADCRUMB or the App (collectively, “Feedback“). Nevertheless, to the extent you provide us with any Feedback, you hereby grant Breadcrumb and all Breadcrumb Affiliates a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicensees), and assignable license to use, copy, distribute, transmit, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise commercially exploit such Feedback, in any media format and through any media channels (the “Feedback License“). The Feedback License shall survive any termination of this Agreement. Breadcrumb will not treat Feedback as being confidential or sensitive to you.
Neither BREADCRUMB nor the App is intended to, and will not operate as, a data storage product or service, and you must not rely on BREADCRUMB or App for the storage of any Content whatsoever. You are solely responsible and liable for the maintenance and backup of all Content on (or otherwise accessible via) BREADCRUMB and the App.

The Firmware and the App may each include or utilize third party, including open source, software components (“Third Party Software“), which may be governed by third party terms and conditions (“Third Party Terms“). You agree that your use of such Third Party Software is also governed by the applicable Third Party Terms, and that to the extent of any conflict between this Agreement and any Third Party Terms, the latter shall control. Breadcrumb may make available in the Documentation a list of any such Third Party Software and related Third Party Terms and acknowledgements, and will comply with any valid request you submit to us for exercising your rights under such Third Party Terms.
THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE
The App may present, or otherwise allow you to view, access, link to, and interact with, Content from third parties and other sources that are not owned or controlled by Breadcrumb (such Content, “Third Party Content“). The App may also enable you to communicate with the related third parties. The display or communication to you of such Third Party Content does not (and shall not be construed to) in any way imply, suggest, or constitute any sponsorship, endorsement, or approval by Breadcrumb of such Third Party Content or third party, nor any affiliation between any Breadcrumb and such third party.
THIRD PARTY CONTENT
You are solely responsible and liable for the Content that you create, upload to, or otherwise link to your Account (“Account Content“). You hereby grant Breadcrumb and all Breadcrumb Affiliates a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicensees), and assignable license to use, copy, distribute, transmit, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise use your Account Content for the purpose of providing, making available, and promoting the App and any other items or services under this Agreement (the “Content License“). The Content License shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR CONTENT
The App contains various functions, features and tools (collectively, “Features“). Breadcrumb reserves the right to remove, modify, and/or add Features at any time, without any notice to you, and for any reason whatsoever. Some Features may in any event be limited, suspended or restricted by geography, volume, duration or any other criteria decided by Breadcrumb. Moreover, if Breadcrumb determines that you are in breach of any provision of this Agreement, we reserve the right to block you from certain Features, as well as block your presence and your Content from other users. We make Features available because we believe it enhances the user experience of the App; but you acknowledge and agree that just because we make a Feature available, it does not mean we endorse, or can otherwise control, every manner in which such Feature is used. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you use all Features in accordance with the restrictions described in this Agreement as well as with applicable Laws.
We may from time to time provide updates or upgrades to the App (each, an “Update“), but are not under any obligation to do so. Such Updates will be supplied according to our then-current policies, which may include automatic updating or upgrading without any notice to you. You consent to any such automatic updating or upgrading of the App. All references herein to the App shall include its Updates as well, and this Agreement shall govern any Update, unless the Update is accompanied by separate or additional licensing terms, in which case such terms will (also) apply.
You hereby acknowledge that the Device, Software and Documentation are or may be protected by intellectual property (and similar) Laws, treaties, and conventions. Any rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved by Breadcrumb and its licensors. As between you and Breadcrumb, Breadcrumb is the sole and exclusive owner of all Intellectual Property Rights in and to the Device, the Software, the Documentation, and any related services provided pursuant to this Agreement.

- Arbitration Rules and Governing Law
- Notwithstanding your and Breadcrumb’s agreement that Illinois law governs this Agreement and its interpretation and application, you and Breadcrumb further hereby agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (“FAA“), applies to this agreement to arbitrate, and governs all questions of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration.
- Unless you and Breadcrumb expressly agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration shall be administered by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS“), pursuant to JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Streamlined Rules“), as modified by this Agreement (that is, the terms of this Section 22 govern if they conflict with any of the JAMS Streamlined Rules), and consistent with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness(“JAMS Consumer Fairness Standards“). The arbitrator must honor the terms and limitations in the Agreement and can award damages and relief, including any attorneys’ fees authorized by Law. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND BREADCRUMB ARE HEREBY EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION (OR OTHER CLASS-WIDE PROCEEDING).
- Notwithstanding JAMS Streamlined Rule 8(b), you and Breadcrumb agree that any dispute as to the arbitrability of a Dispute brought by either you or Breadcrumb shall be resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction.
- THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE PROCEDURES OR RULES OF JAMS WOULD. RATHER, YOU AND BREADCRUMB ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. FURTHER, AND UNLESS YOU AND BREADCRUMB EXPRESSLY AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S DISPUTE WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S DISPUTE(S), AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
- The Arbitrator’s Decision
- The arbitrator will render an award in accordance with JAMS Streamlined Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. In the event any litigation should arise between you and Breadcrumb in any court of competent jurisdiction in a proceeding to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND BREADCRUMB WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the proceeding be resolved by a judge. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable Law. Breadcrumb will not seek, and hereby waives all rights Breadcrumb may have under applicable Law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if Breadcrumb prevails in arbitration, unless you assert a frivolous claim.
- The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the FAA.
- Location & Fees
- Unless you and Breadcrumb expressly agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will take place in-person at the following locations: (a) if you are a resident of a country in North America, Central America or South America, the arbitration will take place in Naperville, Illinois; or (b) if you are a resident of any other country in the world, the arbitration will take place in Naperville, Illinois.
- If you initiate an arbitration for a Dispute, you will be required to pay $250 of the fee required to initiate the arbitration and Breadcrumb will pay any remaining JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services; you will remain responsible for your respective costs relating to counsel, experts, witnesses, and travel to the arbitration.
- If Breadcrumb initiates an arbitration for a Dispute, Breadcrumb will pay all administrative fees and costs related to the arbitration, including all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services; you will remain responsible for your costs relating to counsel, experts, witnesses, and travel to the arbitration.
- Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in a small claims court for Disputes within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the Law allows, seek relief against Breadcrumb on your behalf.
