Clause 4 - Content

a. Your Content

By providing input to Ssebowa ai virtual friend services, users gain access to an output generated and returned based on their input ("Content"). All input belongs to the user, while Ssebowa ai virtual friend assigns all its rights, title, and interest in the output to the user. This grants users the freedom to use content for any purpose, including commercial endeavors, as long as they comply with these terms. Ssebowa ai virtual friend reserves the right to use content to provide and maintain the services in addition to complying with applicable laws and enforcing policies. Ultimately, it is the users' responsibility to ensure their content does not violate any laws or terms.

b. Similarity of Content

Due to the advanced capabilities of machine learning, systems such as Ssebowa ai virtual friend or other third-party services will likely yield the same or comparable results when presented with the same input. For example, supposing someone were to ask a system "What color is the sun?" they would most likely receive a response of "The sun is yellow." Similarly, other users who posed the same query would presumably be given the same answer. It is important to note that users who submit identical or similar requests cannot claim ownership of the generated response as they are not considered the creators of the content.

c. Use of Content to Improve Services

We do not make use of the content provided to or received from our API, otherwise known as "API content". To provide top-notch services, we may use non-API content from other sources like you to develop and improve our services. This allows us to take advantage of feedback from a wider user base as well as explore data from various sources to develop and improve our services. This use of external content helps us ensure that our services remain up-to-date and continue to offer our users the best possible user experience. If you would prefer that your non-API content not be used to improve our services, you can decide not to allow us. Please note that refusing us to use your non-API content may restrict our ability to offer an ideal solution tailored to your specific needs.

Clause 5 - Accuracy

The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is advancing rapidly. We are continually striving to perfect our services to ensure they are accurate, reliable, and beneficial for end-users. As machine learning is based on probabilistic methods, there will be occasions where the results generated will not be completely accurate or correctly reflect real-world scenarios. Consequently, you must take care to carefully evaluate the accuracy of output for any use case before implementation, which may include manually reviewing the output too.

Clause 6 - Fees and Payments

a. Fees and Billing

Payment of fees and billing are subject to the prices and conditions indicated on applicable pricing pages or as specified in writing between us. We reserve the right to amend any pricing errors or misapprehensions even if payments or invoices have already been issued.

We will post charges to the payment method at agreed intervals but may modify the date of posting at our discretion.

b. Taxes

Unless mentioned, charges may not incorporate federal, state, regional, and foreign levies, duties, and other similar charges ("taxes").

e. Free Tier

The generous free tier of our services is to be enjoyed responsibly. We kindly ask that users do not attempt to circumvent this by creating multiple accounts to benefit from the credits provided in the free tier. We reserve the right to take action if we suspect that users have acted against this in bad faith, for example by charging them standard fees or suspending access to the services.

Clause 9 - Dispute Resolution

Mandatory arbitration has been established as a means of resolving disputes between Ssebowa ai virtual friend and its users relating to these terms or services. Both parties agree that any past or present claims that arise out of the usage of Ssebowa ai virtual friend's services will be resolved through final and binding arbitration, except for certain rights of the user to opt out should they wish to do so. If a user wishes to opt out of the arbitration terms or any future changes to them, they must fill out the relevant form within 30 days of agreeing to the arbitration terms. This then will allow a user to choose another mode of dispute resolution, such as litigation or mediation.

b. Informal Dispute Resolution

Before taking any formal legal action against Ssebowa ai, we would like to help you address your concerns. You are encouraged to reach out to us at info@ssebowa.ai with your name, a full description of the issue, and the outcome you desire. We will strive to find a solution to the conflict within 60 days. Any applicable statute of limitations for bringing a lawsuit will be extended for the duration of the 60-day resolution period.

c. Arbitration Forum

Arbitration is an effective method of resolving conflicts without resorting to litigation. Both parties may opt to initiate arbitration through a third-party arbitration provider such as ADR Services. The two individuals involved in the dispute shall each pay half of the total cost of conducting the arbitration. However, should it be determined that one of the parties is unable to afford the cost of arbitration or obtain a waiver, Ssebowa ai virtual friend may step in and pay the fees on your behalf. It is also important to note that Ssebowa ai virtual friend will not attempt to collect attorneys' charges or expenses unless the arbitrator determines the claim to be frivolous.

d. Arbitration Procedures

Arbitration procedures will take into account a variety of methods. These may include telephone conversations, written submissions, video conferencing, or face-to-face meetings held in Cheyenne, Wyoming, or at any other mutually agreed-upon location. All disputes will be resolved by an individual arbitrator provided by ADR Services, operating under prevailing rules. The only exception would be for a Wyoming court to determine the enforceability, scope, and arbitrability of this particular agreement along with the mass filing procedures outlined in the clauses. Additionally, the amount of any settlement offer will remain confidential between the parties until after the arbitrator renders their final decision.

e. Exceptions

This article outlines what claims are not subject to arbitration as outlined in the arbitration section. Specifically, individual claims brought to small claims court and injunctive or other equitable relief required to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the services or infringement of intellectual property are exempt from arbitration. Consequently, litigants have the option to pursue these exceptions in small claims court or to seek equitable relief outside of arbitration.

f. No Class Actions

These Terms of Use do not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture between you and Ssebowa. You agree that you will not take any action at law or in equity for any claim arising out of these Terms of Use, the use of our ai virtual friend, or our services. You hereby waive any right to file or participate in any class action lawsuit against Ssebowa related to our ai virtual friend or the Terms of Use.

g. Mass Filings

If a large number of identical claims are brought forward against Ssebowa ai virtual friend or connected entities (known as a mass filing), ADR Services will allocate consecutive numbers to each of these filings. The first ten submissions (also known as 'Initial Test Cases') shall be afforded precedence and proceed to arbitration. Within 120 days after the inaugural pre-hearing conference, the arbitrators will deliver a conclusive ruling barring a prior resolution or if both sides agree to extend the timeline. This will be followed by a 90-day Mediation Period during which the outstanding cases should be mediated based on the judgments from the aforementioned Initial Test Cases. If a conclusion cannot be achieved during this interval, parties are at liberty to opt out of the arbitration process and instead pursue court proceedings. Written notice of this decision must be submitted within 60 days of the end of the Mediation Period. In any other eventuality, the remaining cases will move forward as per their assigned order. The statute of limitations applicable in each instance will be put on hold until the date on which the Initial Test Cases are decided.

h. Severability

If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable according to applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed superseded by a valid enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding the Ssebowa ai virtual friend and supersede any prior agreements. You may also be subject to additional Terms of Use that may apply when you use certain services, third-party content, or third-party software. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
