The Platform will display suggested retail prices for products offered on or through the Platform based on pricing information provided by vendors, retailers and manufacturers and we make no promises about the reliability or accuracy of any such information listed on the Platform.

Although we are not obligated to screen communications or postings in advance and are not responsible for screening or monitoring the Platform, or any element or component thereof, you acknowledge and agree that we have the right to monitor the Platform in our sole discretion, and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Privacy Notice, to disclose information as necessary or appropriate to satisfy any law, regulation or other governmental request, to operate the Platform properly, or to protect itself or other users. If we are notified of communications or content that allegedly violates this Agreement and/or any applicable law, rule or regulation, we may investigate the allegation and determine in our sole discretion whether to remove, or request the removal of, the content or to terminate the use of the Platform by the user who posted such content, but we have no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities. Without limiting anything set out elsewhere in this Agreement, if a user views content or receives communications allegedly inconsistent with this Agreement, the user may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating, in reasonable detail, the observed behavior. Following receipt of such correspondence, a decision will be made by us, in our sole discretion, regarding the appropriate action to take, if any, to address the concern set out in such e-mail. Any action or inaction by us does not imply or impose any responsibility or liability on us for the form, intent or accuracy of the original or any subsequent content posted by, or communications between, users.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any Third Party Sites you access.
2.4 Notice for Claims of Intellectual Property Violations and Agent for Notice
If you believe in good faith that any material in the Platform infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send our Agent for Notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement (“Agent”) a written notice requesting that we remove or block access to the infringing material.

(b) Wireless Carrier Considerations
To use or otherwise access the App, you must have a mobile device that is compatible with the App. We do not warrant that the App will be compatible with your mobile device. We do not charge for the App, but your wireless carrier's normal messaging, data and other rates and fees will still apply.
(c) Consent for Text and Mobile Messaging
By using the App, you expressly agree that we may communicate with you by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means directed to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the App may be communicated to us. Our communications to you may include, among other things, special events, news, promotions and offers. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile device telephone number, you agree to promptly update your Account information to ensure that messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.
(d) User End Licenses
We grant you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to install and use one copy of the App downloaded directly from a legitimate marketplace (such as the Apple iTunes store), solely in object code format and solely for your personal use for lawful purposes using your Account, on a single mobile device that you own or control. You may not:

- remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the App, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the App, or features that enforce limitations on use of the App.
The foregoing limited license is not a sale of the App, and we otherwise retain all rights, title and interest in and to the App. We may terminate your license to the App at any time, in our sole discretion. Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided by this Agreement, is void.
You acknowledge and agree that from time-to-time we may issue updates to the App. If the settings on your device are set to automatically update the App, you expressly consent to such automatic updating, and agree that this Agreement (as it may be amended) will apply to all such updates.
(f) iTunes App Terms
(i) The following additional terms and conditions apply to you if you are using the App from iTunes. To the extent the other terms and conditions of this Agreement are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of this Section, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions of this Section apply, but solely with respect to the App from iTunes. Simon and you acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple's subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
(ii) Simon and you acknowledge that this Agreement is concluded between Simon and you only, and not with Apple, and Simon, not Apple, is solely responsible for the App and the content thereof. To the extent this Agreement provides for usage rules for the App that are less restrictive than the Usage Rules set forth for the App in, or otherwise is in conflict with, the iTunes Terms of Service, the more restrictive or conflicting iTunes Terms of Service usage rules apply.
(iii) Simon and you acknowledge that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App.
(iv) Simon and you acknowledge that Simon, not Apple, is responsible for addressing any claims of you or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
(v) Simon and you acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party's intellectual property rights, Simon, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.
(vi) You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
