By accessing or using the Promotional App, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions described in this Agreement. If you do not agree, you are not permitted to use and you must immediately stop using the Promotional App. We may amend this Agreement at any time and from time to time by posting a revised version on the Promotional App. Amended terms are effective at the time we post them and your continued use of the Promotional App constitutes your acceptance of any amended terms. We may provide you with notice regarding upcoming terms changes by email, text message or other means. This Agreement contains a mandatory arbitration provision that, as further set forth below, requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or any other court proceedings, or class actions of any kind.
