5. Description of the Service
Givingli provides a service for Users to send personalized digital greeting cards and the option for the recipient to redeem virtual credit towards digital gift cards.
A. Giving with Givingli
The Service is a platform that allows a person (the “Sender”) to buy a gift for another person (the “Recipient”). These terms apply to you as a Sender or as a Recipient.
The Service provides the ability of the Recipient to redeem virtual currency (“Givingli Cash”) for one or more digital gift card products (each a “Product”) from one of the available participating merchants (“Merchant”). The Service allows the Sender to select a digital greeting card (“Greeting”) and purchase Givingli Cash. The Service allows the Sender to suggest a Product for the Recipient to exchange for Givingli Cash (“Redeem”). The Service will process the payment for Givingli Cash from the Sender and allow the Recipient to make his/her gift Redeem decision(s), at the Recipient’s option.
B. Suggested Gift
Givingli does not accept Payment for anything other than Givingli Cash, which may be Redeemed by the Recipient for Products. Recipient does not purchase anything using the Givingli Service and Givingli does not sell Products, i.e. digital gift cards. The sole way for any User to obtain a Product is by Redeeming Givingli Cash in exchange for a Product.
The Sender will pay an amount, as described below, for Givingli Cash (a “Payment”) by using a payment method offered through the Service (e.g., a credit card) (“Payment Method”). In connection with the Payment the Sender may choose to suggest a Product for the Recipient to Redeem with their Givingli Cash (the “Suggested Gift”). The Sender does not purchase a Product, regardless of if Sender chooses a Suggested Gift or not. Sender may only purchase Givingli Cash and under no circumstances does Givingli accept any money in exchange for a Product. Upon Payment, the Service makes available the Payment amount to the Recipient (“Givingli Cash Value”). The Recipient may use the Givingli Cash Value to select the Suggested Gift or any other Product offered by the Givingli at that time, as offered to the Recipient by the Service. When a Recipient uses the Givingli Cash Value to select one of these options, the selection is called the “Gift”. Each Payment is subject to Givingli’s fraud process and evaluation, which may result in a rejection of the Payment (“Payment Rejection”). Payment Rejection for any reason, including but not limited to suspected fraud, will result in a full refund to the card-holder plus any applicable fees. Givingli has sole discretion to reject any Payment for any reason or for no reason.
C. Recipient Notice
The Service will offer the Sender one or more mechanisms to provide the Recipient notice that the Recipient has received Givingli Cash Value from the Sender (“Recipient Notice”) which may include SMS text message, email and/or social media communications. Depending on how the Sender chooses to provide the Recipient Notice, the Sender may be required to enter contact information for the Sender and/or the Recipient. The Sender is solely responsible for sending the Recipient Notice. The Sender acknowledges that any person with access to the Recipient Notice or the Givingli Cash Value may be able to Redeem the Givingli Cash Value, regardless of whether Sender intends such person to receive the Recipient Notice or the Givingli Cash Value. Givingli is not responsible for any incorrect contact or other information provided by the Sender. If Givingli is informed that the contact information provided by the Sender is invalid (e.g., phone number of the Recipient is returned undeliverable), Givingli will make reasonable efforts to contact the Sender to obtain updated contact information to resend the Givingli Cash Value.
D. Using the Givingli Cash Value
The Recipient Notice will inform the Recipient of the Sender’s Suggested Gift and a mechanism to access the Givingli Cash Value to obtain the Suggested Gift, if the Recipient chooses. The Recipient may Redeem the Givingli Cash Value for the Suggested Gift or any other Product issued by another entity as offered to the Recipient by the Service. If the Recipient chooses to redeem the Givingli Cash Value for a Product, such Product is priced at the time of the Givingli Cash Value redemption and is subject to availability. The use of Givingli Cash Value to Redeem for any Product is governed by the Merchant Terms.
If the Recipient chooses to redeem the Givingli Cash Value for a Gift other than the Suggested Gift, Recipient may email Givingli at hello@Givingli.com to obtain a different gift.
E. Cancelling the Givingli Cash Value Transaction
The Givingli Cash Value transaction may be cancelled for the following reasons:
(i) by Givingli or the Merchant as permitted by law, this Agreement, or Merchant Terms or in order to prevent fraud or money laundering or other illegal uses of the Service or uses that pose excessive legal, financial or security risk to Givingli or its suppliers;
(ii) by Givingli acting on behalf of the Sender, Merchant, or Recipient for the purposes set forth in this provision at Givingli’s sole discretion, or
(iii) as otherwise required or permitted by law.
Upon cancellation of the Givingli Cash Value, the Service will notify the Sender and, if appropriate, the Recipient of the cancellation. Givingli will also issue a refund of the Sender’s original Payment Method for the appropriate amount, if Givingli determines a refund is appropriate. We reserve the right to charge a fee to the Sender if Sender cancels the transaction and such fee, if any, will be disclosed to Sender at time of cancellation request.
The Sender may not use the Service to purchase any Givingli Cash Value with an aggregate value of greater than $2,000 on any single day. Some Merchants might have a lower daily and/or transactional limitation.
We do not charge any activation, service, dormancy or inactivity fees in connection with Merchant Gift Card Products. Your Gift Card Products are subject to the Terms of each Merchant and have no expiration date nor does the value on your Gift Card Product ever expire.
H. The Merchant’s Responsibilities
You acknowledge and agree that any stored value product issued in connection with the Service (e.g., Merchant gift card selected by Recipient) is issued only when the Recipient Redeems the Givingli Cash Value for a gift card. You also acknowledge and agree that any such gift card is issued by the Merchant. You agree that the Merchant, and not Givingli, is solely responsible for any and all Merchant Terms or other terms and conditions relating to Gifts, including, without limitation, the following: (i) Products provided by the Merchant, including price, advertising, providing accurate names, descriptions, and pictures, fulfilling and shipping all orders for Products made by the Recipient, etc.; (ii) escheat and any unclaimed property issues regarding Products purchased or Merchant gift cards; (iii) complying with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including those regulating gift cards, gift certificates, stored value, and prepaid access issued by Merchants or any other third party; (iv) returns, exchanges, defects, and any other issues regarding Products; and (v) redeeming Gifts directly if your access to the Service has been suspended or terminated or you are otherwise unable to use the Service. Any questions or issues regarding order or shipment errors, returns, exchanges, defects or problems with the products or services provided by the Merchant, or any other issues that are the responsibility of the Merchant should be directed to the Merchant, not Givingli. Any return or exchange of Product will be subject to the Merchant’s then-current return process or policy and Merchant Terms and any accepted returns will result, as applicable, in a credit with or refund from the Merchant.

22. Governing Law and Arbitration.
A. Negotiations. Subject to the exceptions set forth in Section 21(D) below, before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding, you and Givingli agree to first attempt to negotiate any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or related to this Agreement informally for at least thirty (30) days. Negotiations will begin upon written notice. Givingli will send its notice to your billing address and email you a copy to the email address you have provided to us. You will send your notice to Givingli at 9701 Wilshire Blvd. 10th Floor Beverly Hills, CA 90212
B. Arbitration. Subject to the exceptions in Section 21(D) below, In the unlikely event that Givingli has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Givingli claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Givingli agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND Givingli ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. You can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate (“opt out”) by sending Givingli a written opt-out notice (the “Opt-Out Notice”) to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. The Opt-Out Notice must state that you do not agree to this agreement to arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number, and email address. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply.
C. Governing Law. You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Givingli, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, or any other exception set forth in Section 16(D) below.
D. Exceptions to Negotiation and Arbitration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Agreement, nothing in Sections 16(A) or 16(B) shall prevent either party from (i) seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights; (ii) pursuing any claims seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of either party’s Intellectual Property Rights; (iii) pursuing any claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; or (iv) any other claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for claims that are within the scope of such courts' jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
23. Givingli Cash
Any balance in your Givingli Cash account represents a virtual amount, that is not secured by an fiat currency, until Recipient Redeems for a Product. Funds held in a Givingli Cash account are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Givingli combines your Givingli Cash account balance with the balances of other Givingli Cash account holders and invests those funds in liquid investments in accordance with state money transmitter laws. Givingli owns the interest or other earnings on these investments. However, the claim against Givingli represented by your Givingli Cash account balance is not secured by these investments and you do not have any ownership interest (either legal or beneficial) in these investments. You are responsible for all risks associated with maintaining Givingli Cash. Givingli may hold, cancel, or reverse any transaction we determine to violate this policy.
If you have opened a Givingli Account, Givingli Cash sent by someone else to your personal Givingli account will automatically be placed in your Givingli Cash balance, creating a total of your unredeemed Givingli Cash. If you receive Givingli Cash you may redeem it in the Givingli App or any other method offered to you by the Givingli Service. You may be required to create a Givingli Account in order to Redeem Givingli Cash.
A. Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Givingli without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
C. No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Givingli as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Service.
D. Attorneys’ Fees. In the event any litigation is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the prevailing party in such litigation shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys' fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
E. Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that Givingli would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
F. Entire Agreement/Severability. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Givingli in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Givingli concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
G. No Waiver. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Givingli’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
H. Trademarks. Givingli’s name, Givingli and Givingli Cash trademarks, Givingli’s logos, and any other Givingli product, service name, or slogan included in the Service are trademarks of Givingli and may not be copied, imitated, or used (in whole or in part) without Givingli’s prior written permission.
