Terms of Service
Welcome to HOLLA!
We've drafted these Terms of Service (which we simply call the "Terms") so that you'll know the rules that
govern our relationship with you. Although we have tried our best to strip the legalese from the Terms,
there are places where
these Terms may still read like a traditional contract. There's a good reason for that: These Terms do
indeed form a legally binding contract between you and EXU (HK) LIMITED. So please read them carefully.
By using the Services, you agree to the Terms. Of course, if you don't agree with them, then don't use the
The following Terms of Service outline your obligations when using our mobile application (“App”) or
Service (as defined herein), or any of the information, text, graphics, videos, or other files, materials,
data or content of any
kind whatsoever created or provided by or through the App or the Service or through your ability to sell
products on the App and generate User Contributed Content (as defined herein). Please also review our
is a part of these Terms of Service and which outlines our practices towards handling any personal
information that you may provide to us.
The App and the Service are owned and operated by EXU (HK) LIMITED. (“HOLLA,” “we,” or “us”) and are
accessed by you under the Terms of Service described herein (“Terms of Service” or “Agreement”). Please read
these Terms of Service
carefully before using the App or the Service. By accessing the App or using any part of the Service, you
agree to become bound by these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to all these terms and conditions,
then you may
not access the App or use the Service. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third party
rights or benefits.
ARBITRATION NOTICE: WE WANT TO LET YOU KNOW UPFRONT THAT THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE A LITTLE
LATER ON. EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES MENTIONED IN THAT ARBITRATION CLAUSE, YOU AND HOLLA AGREE
THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN
US WILL BE RESOLVED BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION, AND YOU AND HOLLA WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A
CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
1. Who Can Use the Services
No one under 18 is allowed to create an account or use the Services. We may offer additional Services with
additional terms that may require you to be even older to use them. So please read all terms carefully.
By using the Services, you state that:
- - You can form a binding contract with HOLLA;
- - You will comply with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international
laws, rules, and regulations.
If you are using the Services on behalf of a business or some other entity, you state that you are
authorized to grant all licenses set forth in these Terms and to agree to these Terms on behalf of the
business or entity. If you are
using the Services on behalf of an entity of the United States Government or Chinese Government, you agree
to the Amendment to HOLLA Terms of Service for the United States Government and Chinese Government Users.
No one under 18 is allowed to create an account or use the Services.
You hereby warrant that you are at least 18 years old. In the event that the information you provide in
this regard is not truthful, HOLLA shall not be liable as it cannot verify the age of its users. If you are
under 18 years old,
do not attempt to register the App or the Service. If you are under the age of 18, you may use the Service,
only with the approval of your parent or guardian. In addition, you should review these terms with your
parent or guardian
to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand and agree with these terms.
2. Rights We Grant You
HOLLA grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, nonexclusive, revocable, and
non-sublicensable license to access and use the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of letting
you use and enjoy the Service's
benefits in a way that these Terms and our usage policies.
Any software that we provide you may automatically download and install upgrades, updates, or other new
features. You may be able to adjust these automatic downloads through your device's settings.
You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services, nor may you reverse engineer
or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless applicable laws prohibit these restrictions
or you have our
written permission to do so.
3. Rights You Grant Us
Many of our Services let you create, upload, post, send, receive, and store content. When you do that, you
retain whatever ownership rights in that content you had to begin with. But you grant us a license to use
that content. How
broad that license is depends on which Services you use and the Settings you have selected.
For all Services, you grant HOLLA a worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to
host, store, use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, edit, publish, and distribute that content. This
license is for the limited
purpose of operating, developing, providing, promoting, and improving the Services and researching and
developing new ones.
Because Local is inherently public and chronicle matters of public interest, the license you grant us for
content submitted to those Services is broader. In addition to the rights you grant us in connection with
other Services, you
also grant us a perpetual license to create derivative works from, promote, exhibit, broadcast, syndicate,
publicly perform, and publicly display content submitted to Local or any other crowd-sourced Services in any
form and in
any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed). To the extent it's necessary, you
also grant HOLLA and our business partners the unrestricted, worldwide, perpetual right and license to use
your name, likeness,
Local content that you upload or send. This means, among other things, that you will not be entitled to any
compensation from HOLLA or our business partners if your name, likeness or Local.
While we're not required to do so, we may access, review, screen, and delete your content at any time and
for any reason, including if we think your content violates these Terms. You alone though remain responsible
for the content
you create, upload, post, send, or store through the Service.
The Services may contain advertisements. In consideration for HOLLA letting you access and use the
Services, you agree that HOLLA, its affiliates, and third-party partners may place advertising on the
We always love to hear from our users. But if you volunteer feedback or suggestions, just know that we can
use your ideas without compensating you.
4. The Content of Others
Much of the content on our Services is produced by users, publishers, and other third parties. Whether that
content is posted publicly or sent privately, the content is the sole responsibility of the person or
organization that submitted
it. Although HOLLA reserves the right to review all content that appears on the Services and to remove any
content that violates these Terms, we do not necessarily review all of it. So we cannot—and do not—take
any content that others provide through the Services.
Through these Terms, we make clear that we do not want the Services put to bad uses. But because we do not
review all content, we cannot guarantee that content on the Services will always conform to our Terms.
We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any
content contributed by users or endorse any of the opinions expressed therein. You agree to waive, and
hereby do waive, any legal
or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against us with respect thereto. You acknowledge that
any reliance on User Contributed Content of any HOLLA user will be at your own risk.
Your privacy matters to us. You can learn how we handle your information when you use our Services by
Services, you agree
that HOLLA can collect, use, and transfer your information consistent with that policy.
6. Respecting Other People's Rights

other intellectual-property right;

any means not purposely made available through the System;
- - asks or offers sexually explicit images or engage in any activity harmful to minors or
otherwise violates these terms.
You must also respect HOLLA's rights. These Terms do not grant you any right to:
- - use branding, logos, designs, photographs, videos, or any other materials used in our Services;
- - copy, archive, download, upload, distribute, syndicate, broadcast, perform, display, make
available, or otherwise use any portion of the Services or the content on the Services except as set forth
in these Terms;
- - use the Services or any content on the Services for any commercial purposes without our
In short: You may not use the Services or the content on the Services in ways that are not authorized by
these Terms. Nor may you help or enable anyone else in doing so.
We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to remove or refuse to distribute any
content contributed by HOLLA users, such as content which violates these Terms of Service. We also reserve
the right to access,
read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to :
- - satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request;
- - enforce these Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof;
- - detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues;
- - respond to member support requests, or protect our rights, property or safety, and that of
our users and the public.
We will not be responsible or liable for the exercise or non-exercise of this right under these Terms of
You understand that by using or accessing the App or the Service you may be exposed to content that might
be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate material, or in some cases, postings that have
been mislabeled or
are otherwise deceptive. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any content or
communications, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any form of User Contributed
Content, or any loss or damage
of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any HOLLA content or content posted by users which are
posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available on the App or through the Service.
7. Respecting Copyright
You agree to only upload, post, submit or otherwise transmit User Contributed Content: (i) that you have
the lawful right to use, copy, distribute, transmit, or display; and (ii) that does not infringe the
intellectual property rights
or violate the privacy rights of any third party (including, without limitation, copyright, trademark,
patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property right, or moral right or right of publicity). HOLLA
respects the legal
rights of others, and asks that its users do the same.
HOLLA honors the requirements set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We therefore take
reasonable steps to expeditiously remove from our Services any infringing material that we become aware of.
And if HOLLA becomes aware
that one of its users has repeatedly infringed copyrights, we will take reasonable steps within our power to
terminate the user's account.
We make it easy for you to report suspected copyright infringement. If you believe that anything on the
Services infringes a copyright that you own or control, please fill out this form. Or you may file a notice
with us: firstname.lastname@example.org

- - contain the physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the
- - identify the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;

- - provide your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and an email
- - provide a personal statement that you have a good-faith belief that the use of the material in
the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- - provide a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of
perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
We try hard to keep our Services a safe place for all users. But we can't guarantee it. That's where you
come in. By using the Services, you agree that:
- - You will not use the Services for any purpose that is illegal or prohibited in these Terms.
- - You will not use any robot, spider, crawler, scraper, or other automated means or interface to
access the Services or extract other user's information.
- - You will not use or develop any third-party applications that interact with the Services or
other users' content or information without our written consent.
- - You will not use the Services in a way that could interfere with, disrupt, negatively affect,
or inhibit other users from fully enjoying the Services, or that could damage, disable, overburden, or

We have the right to investigate and prosecute violations of any of the above, including intellectual

cooperate with law enforcement
authorities in prosecuting HOLLA users who violate these Terms of Service. You acknowledge that we have the
right to monitor your access to or use of the App and/or the Service for operating purposes, to ensure your
with these Terms of Service, or to comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court,
administrative agency or other governmental body.
We also care about your safety while using our Services. So do not use our Services in a way that would
distract you from obeying traffic or safety laws. And never put yourself or others in harm's way.
9. Your Account
You are responsible for any activity that occurs in your account. So it's important that you keep your
account secure. One way to do that is to select a strong password that you don't use for any other account.
By using the Services, you agree that, in addition to exercising common sense:
- - You will not create more than one account for yourself.
- - You will not create another account if we have already disabled your account, unless you have
our written permission to do so.
- - You will not buy, sell, rent, or lease access to your HOLLA account without our written
- - You will not share your password.
- - You will not log in or attempt to access the Services through unauthorized third-party
applications or clients.
If you think that someone has gained access to your account, please immediately reach out to HOLLA Support
10. Purchases and Payments
We may offer various friends making Services that you can purchase and use through the Services. You don't
own these Services; instead you buy enough app gems to use them. You'll always be shown the price for
Services before you complete
a purchase. But HOLLA does not handle payments or payment processing for any purchases; those are handled by
third-party payment providers or service providers (such as, Apple's iOS Store and Google's Google Play
Store, among others).
Some third-party service providers may charge you sales tax, depending on where you live. Please check the
third-party service provider's relevant terms for details.
Subject to any applicable additional terms and conditions, all purchases are final and non-refundable. And
because our performance begins once you tap buy and we give you immediate access to your purchase, you waive
any right you may
have under EU or other local law to cancel your purchase once it's completed or to get a refund. BY
ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE THAT HOLLA IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON.
Some of the Virtual Products we offer are for one-time use only, while others are for repeated use. But
please note that "repeated" does not mean "forever." We may change, modify, or eliminate Virtual Products at
any time, with or
without notice. You agree that we will bear no liability to you or any third party if we do so. If we
suspend or terminate your account, you will lose any Products you purchased through the Services.
It's your sole responsibility to manage your purchases. If you are under 18 (or younger than the age of
legal majority in your place of residence), you must obtain your parent's or guardian's consent before
making any purchases.
HOLLA does not transmit any funds and is not a money-services business. To the extent such functionality is
made available in the Services, it is provided by an unaffiliated third party, and like any other
third-party service, subject
to that third party's separate Terms of Service.
HOLLA offers in-app purchases ("IAP") through iTunes, Google Play or other application platforms authorized
by HOLLA. If you choose to make an IAP, you will be prompted to enter details for your account with your
and your application platform account (e.g. iTunes Account) will be charged for the IAP in accordance with
the terms disclosed to you at the time of purchase as well as the general terms for IAP that apply to your
account. Some application platforms may charge you sales tax, depending on where you live. If you purchase
an auto-recurring periodic subscription IAP, your application platform account will continue to be billed
for the subscription
until you cancel the IAP. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent
subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at
the price you
agreed to when subscribing. If you do not wish your subscription to renew automatically, or if you want to
change or terminate your subscription, you can do so within the HOLLA app or log in to your application
and follow instructions to cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us
or if you have deleted the HOLLA application from your device. If you cancel your subscription, you may use
until the end of your then-current subscription term, and your subscription will not be renewed after your
then-current term expires. Deleting your account on HOLLA or deleting the HOLLA application from your device
does not cancel
your subscription; HOLLA will retain all funds charged to your application platform until you cancel your
Generally, all charges for IAP are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used
periods. We may make an exception if a refund for a subscription offering is requested within fourteen days
of the transaction
date, or if the laws applicable in your jurisdiction provide for refunds. For subscribers residing in the EU
or European Economic Area, in accordance with local law, you are entitled to a full refund during the 14
days after the
subscription begins. Please note that this 14-day period commences when the subscription starts.
To request a refund: If you subscribed using your Apple ID, refunds are handled by Apple, not HOLLA. To
request a refund, go to iTunes, click on your Apple ID, select “Purchase history,” find the transaction and
hit "Report Problem".
You can also submit a request at https://getsupport.apple.com.
If you subscribed using your Google Play Store account: please contact Google Play customer support with
your order number for the Google Play Store (you can find the order number in the order confirmation email
or by logging in to
11. Subscription & Gems
Subscription - If you decide to purchase HOLLA Prime, the payment will be charged to your iTunes account.
Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. You can
turn off auto-renewal
any time by going to Settings in the iTunes Store after purchase. HOLLA Prime subscription starts at $9.99
USD/month. Prices may vary in countries other than the U.S. and are subject to change without notice at any
of the current purchased subscription is not allowed upon the activation of the subscription. If you do not
wish to start your HOLLA Prime subscription, you can still continue to enjoy HOLLA for free.
Gems - In order to reward Users for certain activities, HOLLA may give you the opportunity to earn, and use
credits in HOLLA’s in-app virtual currency (“Gems”) that may be used to acquire virtual goods and services
solely with the
Services. Gems are not real money, do not have monetary value, and may never be redeemed for “real world”
money, or other items of monetary value from outside the Services without our written permission. While we
may use terms
like “earn”, “trade-in”, or “cash-out” in reference to the Gems, we do so only for convenience and such
terms in no way indicate that Gems have monetary value or are real money. You acknowledge that Gems are not
real currency and
are not redeemable for any sum of money from us at any time. We make no guarantee as to the nature, quality,
or value of the features of the Services or any third-party good or services that will be accessible through
the use of
Gems, or the availability or supply of Gems. Gems obtained via the Services are provided to you under a
limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use within the Services.
Gems may not be transferred to other accounts or resold in any manner, including, without limitation, by
means of any direct sale or auction service. You have no property interest, right or title in or to any Gems
appearing or originating
in the Services or any other attributes associated with use of the Services. Any “virtual currency” balance
shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead
constitutes a measurement
of the extent of your license. All Gems are forfeited if your account or access to the Services is
terminated or suspended for any reason, in our sole and absolute discretion, or if we discontinue
availability of some or all of
the Services. We may at any time expire free or promotional Gems given to you. We have no liability for
hacking or loss of your Gems or any goods or services obtained using Gems. We have no obligation to, and
will not, reimburse
you for any Gems that are lost due to your violation of these Terms. We reserve the right, without prior
notification, to limit the quantity of Gems and to refuse to provide you with any Gems. Price,
exchangeability and availability
of Gems are determined by us in our sole discretion and are subject to change without notice. You agree that
we have the absolute right to manage, distribute, regulate, control, modify, or eliminate Gems as we see fit
in our sole
discretion, and that we will have no liability for exercising such right. You agree that under no
circumstances are we liable to you for any damages or claims that may arise from the loss or use of your
Gems regardless of the circumstances.
User inactivity - If your account remains inactive for 3 consecutive months, all of your free virtual Gems
may be frozen. To unfreeze any such virtual Gems, you must email us and request that we unfreeze your free
virtual Gems. Upon
receipt of your request and review of your information, we will unfreeze your free virtual Gems as soon as
You absolve us of any responsibility to maintain or update your account Gems balance. However, if there is
a loss of Gems in your account due to technical or operational problems with the Services, we will refund
the lost Gems once
the loss has been verified. Without limiting any of the foregoing, our maximum liability or responsibility
to you is to refund the Gems lost. You may from time to time be presented with opportunities to redeem Gems.
We will, in
our sole discretion, determine and communicate the availability and exchange rate for any Gems, which may be
modified at any time. We reserve the right to cancel, restrict or terminate Gems at any time for any reason.
are subject to these Terms and all limitations and requirements stated via the Services. All acquisitions
and redemptions of Gems are final. Once Gems have been lost or spent, they will be subtracted from your
account and cannot
be refunded or returned, except in our sole discretion.
12. Data Charges and Mobile Phones
You are responsible for any mobile charges that you may incur for using our Services, including
text-messaging and data charges. If you're unsure what those charges may be, you should ask your service
provider before using the Services.
13. Third-Party Services
If you use a service, feature, or functionality that is operated by a third party and made available
through our Services (including Services we jointly offer with the third party), each party's terms will
govern the respective party's
relationship with you. HOLLA is not responsible or liable for those third party's terms or actions taken
under the third party's terms.
14. Modifying the Services and Termination
We're relentlessly improving our Services and creating new ones all the time. That means we may add or
remove features, products, or functionalities, and we may also suspend or stop the Services altogether. We
may take any of these
actions at any time, and when we do, we may not provide you with any notice beforehand.
HOLLA may also terminate these Terms with you at any time, for any reason, and without advanced notice.
That means that we may stop providing you with any Services, or impose new or additional limits on your
ability to use the Services.
For example, we may deactivate your account due to prolonged inactivity or inappropriate behavior, and we
may reclaim your username at any time for any reason.
Both you and HOLLA continue to be bound by Sections 3, 6, 10, 13-21 of the Terms.
You agree, to the extent permitted under applicable law, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless HOLLA, our
directors, officers, employees, and affiliates from and against any and all complaints, charges, claims,
damages, losses, costs,
liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys' fees) due to, arising out of, or relating in any way to: (a)
your access to or use of the Services; (b) your content; and (c) your breach of these Terms.
We try to keep the Services up and running and free of annoyances. But we make no promises that we will
THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, WHILE HOLLA ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE A GOOD
USER EXPERIENCE, WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT: (A) THE SERVICES WILL ALWAYS BE SECURE, ERROR-FREE, OR
THE SERVICES WILL ALWAYS FUNCTION WITHOUT DELAYS, DISRUPTIONS, OR IMPERFECTIONS; OR (C) THAT ANY HOLLA
CONTENT, USER CONTENT, OR INFORMATION YOU OBTAIN ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES WILL BE TIMELY OR ACCURATE.
HOLLA TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR ANY CONTENT THAT YOU, ANOTHER USER, OR A THIRD
PARTY CREATES, UPLOADS, POSTS, SENDS, RECEIVES, OR STORES ON OR THROUGH OUR SERVICES. YOU UNDERSTAND AND
AGREE THAT YOU MAY BE
EXPOSED TO CONTENT THAT MIGHT BE OFFENSIVE, ILLEGAL, MISLEADING, OR OTHERWISE INAPPROPRIATE, NONE OF WHICH
HOLLA WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR.
17. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, HOLLA AND OUR MANAGING MEMBERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES,
AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR MULTIPLE DAMAGES,
OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE,
GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM: (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR
USE THE SERVICES;
(B) THE CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED
ACCESS, USE, OR ALTERATION OF YOUR CONTENT, EVEN IF HOLLA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT
WILL HOLLA'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICES EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 USD OR
THE AMOUNT YOU PAID HOLLA, IF ANY, IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
18. Arbitration, Class Waiver, and Jury Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH HOLLA,
AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
- - Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes arising out of or
relating to these Terms or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved in small claims court will be
resolved by binding arbitration
on an individual basis, except that you and HOLLA are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which
either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names,
logos, trade secrets,
- - Arbitration Rules.United States Arbitration Law governs the interpretation and
enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the United States
International Economic and
Trade Arbitration (“USIETAC”). If the USIETAC is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an
alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration,
except to the
extent those rules conflict with these Terms.
- - Additional Rules for Non-appearance Arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is
elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, written submissions, or any combination
of the three; the specific
manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any
personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
- - Authority of the Arbitrator..The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction of the
arbitrator and the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and HOLLA. The dispute will not be consolidated
with any other matters or
joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions
dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award
monetary damages and to grant
any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum's
rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of decision describing the
and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The
arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law
would have. The award
of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and HOLLA.
- - Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS
ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS.
CLAIMS OF MORE THAN
ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER
CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or
you nor we are entitled to arbitration.
- - Confidentiality. No part of the procedures will be open to the public or the media. All
evidence discovered or submitted at the hearing is confidential and may not be disclosed, except by
written agreement of the
parties, pursuant to court order, or unless required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no party will
be prevented from submitting to a court of law any information needed to enforce this arbitration
agreement, to enforce
an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
- - Right to Waive. Any rights and limitations set forth in this arbitration agreement may
be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other
portion of this arbitration
- - Opt-out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor
HOLLA can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify HOLLA in writing no later than 30 days
after first becoming

and the email address you used to set up your HOLLA account (if you have one), and an unequivocal
statement that you
want to opt-out of this arbitration agreement.
- - Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or HOLLA may bring an
individual action in small claims court.
- - Arbitration Agreement Survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination
of your relationship with HOLLA.
