If we become aware that any of our Users have repeatedly infringed copyrights, we will take reasonable steps to disable and/or terminate the accounts of such Users.


To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us and each of our respective officers, directors, agents, partners and employees (individually and collectively, "Company Parties") from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, expenses or costs ("Claims") arising out of or related to (i) your Use of Prisma; (ii) your User Content or Feedback; (iii) your violation of these Terms; (iv) your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); or (v) your conduct in connection with Prisma.

You also agree that the Company Parties will have control of the defense or settlement of any third party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and us or the other Company Parties.


We do not control, endorse or take responsibility for any User Content or third-party content available on or linked to Prisma.

Your Use of Prisma is at your sole risk. Prisma is provided "as is" and "as available" without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, we do not represent or warrant that Prisma is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.

The Company and the other Company Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability — whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise — for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if you have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

The total liability of the Company and the other Company Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or Prisma, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to Use Prisma.

The limitations set forth in this Section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of the Company or the other Company Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.


To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release the Company and the other Company Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between the Users and the acts or omissions of third parties.

Transfer and storage of information about you, whilst you Use Prisma, is governed by our Privacy Policy.


Please read the following Section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with the Company and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

Except for small claims disputes in which you or the Company seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or the Company seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and the Company waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or Prisma resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or Prisma will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Santa Clara County, California in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

You and the Company agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or Prisma is personal to you and the Company and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.

You and the Company agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 15 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. ("FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and the Company agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and the Company will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by the Company, the Company will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and the Company agree that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States sitting in Santa Clara County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.


You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 15 by notifying the Company in writing. The notification must be sent to:

In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 16.


These Terms and your Use of Prisma will be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of California, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between you and the Company that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in Santa Clara County, California.


We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will post the amended Terms to Prisma and update the "Effective date" above. We may also attempt to notify you by sending an email notification to the address associated with your account, if any, or providing notice through Prisma. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended terms will be effective immediately and your continued Use of Prisma after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you must stop Using Prisma.


By Using Prisma, you also consent to receive electronic communications from us (e.g., via email or by posting notices on Prisma). These communications may include notices about your account (e.g., payment authorizations, password changes and other transactional information) and are part of your relationship with us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including but not limited to that such communications shall be in writing.


We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to Use Prisma. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to Use Prisma.


If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.


The following terms apply if you Use Prisma on any device that contains the iOS mobile operating system ("App") developed by Apple Inc. ("Apple").


These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us relating to your Use of Prisma. The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The Section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of you and the Company and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
