Nevertheless, you acknowledge and agree that you shall be responsible for monitoring your own and your Authorized User(s)’s use of the Plex Solution and for maintaining compliance with this TOS and any third party license restrictions for applicable Content. Any breach of this TOS by an Authorized User(s) shall constitute a breach by you. Unless otherwise indicated, references to “you” or “your” throughout this TOS therefore mean you, your Authorized User(s), and the person or entity named on your account with Plex.
LICENSE GRANT RESTRICTIONS. This TOS is only a license and not an assignment or sale. Plex transfers no ownership or intellectual property interest or title in and to the Plex Solution to you or anyone else. Further, Plex reserves all rights not expressly granted by this TOS.

PERMISSION TO USE USER CONTENT. You continue to retain any ownership rights you have in the User Content you make available to Plex and/or the Plex Solution. However, by submitting or making available any type of User Content, you automatically and hereby grant to Plex a royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable and non-exclusive right and license to use or act on any such User Content in furtherance of and in connection with the operation of the Plex Solution. The rights you grant are limited to the purpose of providing and operating the Plex Solution. You specifically acknowledge that the Plex Solution facilitates distribution of the User Content, and as a part of the foregoing grant, you permit any user with whom you share content a non-exclusive license to access and use the User Content through the Plex Solution as permitted through the functionality of the Plex Solution. You represent that you have all necessary rights to make the foregoing grants and to otherwise make User Content(s) available to Plex and for (and through) the Plex Solution.
NO PRE-SCREENING OF USER CONTENT; REMOVAL.

You also acknowledge that Plex has no control over the extent to which any idea, content, or information may be used by any party or person once it is posted, shared, or displayed.

You acknowledge that Plex may not provide controls that restrict the maturity level of content available through the Plex Solution. If you allow your child (under the age of 18 or the legal age of majority, whichever is greater) to access your Plex account, you are solely responsible for monitoring your child’s use of the Plex Solution and determining what maturity level is appropriate for or accessible to your child. You shall immediately notify Plex if you suspect or become aware of any loss or theft of or unauthorised use of your access credentials.

The subscription cost, subscription term, available trial period (if any), renewal information, and permitted payment methods will be specified at the time of order. All subscriptions are billed immediately in advance and are final unless otherwise indicated by Plex or as may be required under applicable law. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months, upgrades/downgrades, or nonuse.
9.2. Subscription Changes & Renewal. Subscription fees are subject to change (with prior notice) and shall apply to the upcoming renewal period (if any) as indicated. Such notice may be provided by email or by posting the changes to your Plex account, the Plex website, or through the Plex Solution. When you enroll in any recurring subscription arrangement, you authorize Plex to automatically charge the billing source you provided Plex at the time you enrolled for the subscription term specified (at the time of enrollment) until the subscription ends or you cancel your enrollment. To avoid being charged for the next renewal period, you must cancel at least one (1) day prior to the end of the then-current Plex subscription term. You may cancel by clicking here. For any change (upgrade or downgrade) in your subscription that you make or request, your fee and method of payment will be automatically adjusted and charged (as applicable) at the new rate on your next billing cycle. Downgrading your subscription may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account.
9.3. Payment. Plex shall charge and you shall be responsible for payment of all taxes, tariffs, levies, or duties (except that Plex does collect VAT in certain countries). Unless otherwise indicated by Plex in writing, all amounts are immediately due and payable upon order (or renewal). Upon placing an order, you therefore agree to pay using the payment method indicated and grant authorization to Plex to charge the applicable (fee) to your payment provider. All transactions, however, are void where prohibited by law and Plex may request particular information in order to confirm the order and method of payment. Plex also reserves the right to terminate or suspend access to the Plex Solution if you fail to pay any amounts when due. Unless otherwise specified herein, all obligations with respect to the amounts due to Plex under the TOS shall survive any expiration or termination of the TOS.
CONFIDENTIALITY. You acknowledge and agree that the Plex Solution contains confidential or non-public information that is the trade secret(s) of Plex and/or its licensors (the “Confidential Information”). You agree to secure and protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of Plex (and/or its licensors) in a manner consistent with the maintenance of Plex’s rights therein, using at least as great a degree of care as you use to maintain the confidentiality of your own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event using less than reasonable efforts. You shall not, nor permit any third party to, sell, transfer, publish, disclose, or otherwise make available any portion of the Confidential Information to third parties, except as expressly authorised in this TOS.
FEEDBACK. Plex welcomes your feedback and suggestions about Plex’s products or services or with respect to how to improve the Plex Solution. By transmitting any suggestions, information, material, or other content (collectively, “Feedback”) to Plex, you represent and warrant that such Feedback does not infringe or violate the intellectual property or proprietary rights of any third party (including, without limitation, patents, copyrights, or trademark rights) and that you have all rights necessary to convey to Plex and enable Plex to use such Feedback. In addition, any Feedback received by Plex will be deemed to include a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, non-exclusive right and license from you for Plex to adopt, publish, reproduce, disseminate, transmit, distribute, copy, use, create derivative works of, and display (in whole or in part) worldwide, or act on such Feedback without additional approval or consideration, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed for the full term of any rights that may exist therein, and you hereby waive any claim to the contrary.
MOBILE USAGE. The Plex Solution offers a tool(s) or display functionality that is available to you via your mobile phone or other mobile computing device (“Mobile Plex Solution(s)”). Please note that your mobile carrier’s normal messaging, data, and other rates and fees will apply to your use of the Mobile Plex Solution(s). In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Plex Solution(s) may be prohibited or restricted by your mobile carrier, and not all Mobile Plex Solution(s) may work with all carriers or devices or at all locations. Therefore, you are solely responsible for checking with your mobile carrier to determine if the Mobile Plex Solution(s) are available for your mobile devices; what restrictions, if any, may be applicable to your use of the Mobile Plex Solution(s); and how much such use will cost you. Nevertheless, your use of the Plex Solution shall be strictly in accordance with this TOS.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES OR APPLICATIONS. Plex may provide links, in its sole discretion, to other sites or applications on the Internet, including to the Plex Store. Such other sites are maintained by third parties over which Plex exercises no control. These links do not imply an endorsement with respect to any third party or any third-party website or the information, products, or services provided by any third party. Plex encourages review of the applicable terms, conditions or notices governing use of these third party sites or applications.
THIRD-PARTY PLATFORMS & NETWORKS. Certain features allow you to synchronise your content across third-party platforms and networks. These features will enhance the performance of the Plex Solution and allow you to better integrate and harmonise the Plex Solution with information stored on or used with third-party networks. Using this functionality typically requires you to log in to your account on the third-party service, and you do so at your own risk. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on these networks and platforms before linking or connecting them to the Plex Solution. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Plex is in no way responsible or liable for any such third-party services or features.
REPRESENTATION(S). You represent and warrant that (i) the person accepting this TOS has the legal authority to bind the named person on the account, and (ii) he or she has the right, power, and authority to (a) enter into this TOS, (b) make the respective and applicable representations and warranties contained herein, and (c) commit to and perform the respective duties, obligations, and covenants set forth hereunder.
DISCLAIMER. THE PLEX SOLUTION IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND MAY INCLUDE ERRORS, OMISSIONS, OR OTHER INACCURACIES. PLEX MAY MAKE MODIFICATIONS AND/OR CHANGES IN THE PLEX SOLUTION AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY REASON. OTHER THAN THE RIGHT TO FULFILL ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS TOS, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PLEX EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF INTERFERENCE WITH ENJOYMENT OF INFORMATION, SECURITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MOREOVER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT PLEX DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE PLEX SOLUTION WILL OPERATE FREE OF VIRUSES, MALWARE, OR HARMFUL PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE (OR CODE), ERROR-FREE, UNINTERRUPTED, OR IN A MANNER THAT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR MEET ANY LEGAL, TECHNICAL, OR CERTIFICATION STANDARD. BECAUSE THE PLEX SOLUTION IS BASED ON YOUR CONTENT AND DATA, THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PLEX SOLUTION IS WITH YOU. IF THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY IS HELD TO BE UNENFORCEABLE BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION IN ANY MANNER, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND/OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES MANDATED BY SUCH COURT SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO A PERIOD OF THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE INITIAL PERIOD FOR THE PLEX SOLUTION AND NO WARRANTIES SHALL APPLY AFTER THIS THIRTY (30) DAY PERIOD.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. YOU EXPRESSLY ABSOLVE AND RELEASE PLEX FROM ANY CLAIM OF HARM RESULTING FROM A CAUSE BEYOND PLEX’S CONTROL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY HARDWARE, FILES, SYSTEMS, SOFTWARE, SERVICES, OR NETWORKS OUTSIDE THE CONTROL OF PLEX. PLEX IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR YOUR OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S USE OF ANY INTERFACING SOFTWARE (OUTSIDE ITS CONTROL). MOREOVER, ALL USER CONTENT (OR OTHER DATA OR CONTENT) YOU ACCESS THROUGH THE PLEX SOLUTION IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PLEX SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE (OR DELAY IN USE) OF OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY DATA OR CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE PLEX SOLUTION AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY USE OF ANY USER CONTENT BY OTHERS, INCLUDING YOUR AUTHORISED USERS. MOREOVER, IN NO EVENT SHALL PLEX BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF THE PLEX SOLUTION OR WITH THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE PLEX SOLUTION, EVEN IF PLEX HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, TOTAL LIABILITY OF PLEX FOR BREACH OF THIS TOS IS CESSATION OF USE OF THE PLEX SOLUTION AND FOR ANY OTHER REASON RELATED TO OR ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE PLEX SOLUTION WHATSOEVER FOR AN AMOUNT NOT EXCEEDING $100 OR THE TOTAL AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO PLEX DURING THE PAST THREE MONTHS IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR INDIVIDUAL USE OF THE PLEX SOLUTION, WHICHEVER IS GREATER. You and Plex agree to only bring claims arising from this TOS on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless you and Plex agree otherwise, more than one person’s or party’s claims may not be consolidated. You and Plex agree that relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) may be awarded only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s).
INDEMNIFICATION. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Plex (and its affiliated companies, contractors, employees, agents, and suppliers and partners) harmless from any and all claims, suits, actions, liabilities, losses, costs, damages, expenses, and any other liabilities, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related in any manner to your breach or alleged breach of this TOS, your Interfacing Software, or for any violation or alleged violation of the rights (including, without limitation, patents, copyrights, or trademark rights) of any other person or entity by your User Content.
ARBITRATION. You agree that all disputes between you and Plex (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with Plex, including, without limitation, disputes related to this TOS, your use of the Plex Solution, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration. Without limiting Plex’s right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief (as set forth below), any disputes arising with respect to this TOS between you and Plex (“parties”) shall be referred to an arbitrator affiliated with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”). The arbitrator shall be selected by joint agreement of the parties. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the initiating party providing the other party with written notice that it plans to seek arbitration, the parties shall each select an arbitrator affiliated with JAMS, which arbitrators shall jointly select a third such arbitrator to resolve the dispute. Arbitration shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of JAMS/ENDISPUTE Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration. The parties specifically incorporate the terms of California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1283.05 with respect to discovery. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration proceeding shall be carried on and heard in Santa Clara County, California using the English language. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this TOS, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees from the other party. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor Plex will participate in a class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this TOS. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
GOVERNING LAW. The Plex Solution is controlled and operated by Plex from its offices within the United States. This TOS has been made in and will be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California as applied to agreements entered into and completely performed in the State of California. You access and use the Plex Solution on your own volition and are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws with respect to your access and use of the Plex Solution. Additionally, Plex’s headquarters are located in the United States. Please be aware that information you provide to Plex, or that Plex obtains as a result of your use of the Plex Solution, may be processed and transferred to the United States and be subject to United States law. Subject to the foregoing arbitration right, any action to enforce this TOS will be brought in the courts presiding in the Superior Court of Santa Clara County and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, and all parties to this TOS expressly agree to be subject to the jurisdiction of such courts. You and Plex waive trial by jury. Moreover, you may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor Plex will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this TOS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if Plex is a party to the proceeding.
COMMUNICATIONS AND NOTICE. Any communication(s) or notice (and any related materials or information) to be sent pursuant to this TOS shall be in the English language and shall be deemed provided: (a) upon receipt if by personal delivery; (b) upon receipt if sent by certified or registered U.S. Mail (return receipt requested); (c) one day after it is sent if by next-day delivery by a major commercial delivery service; or (d) with respect to termination of this TOS or for information applicable generally to end users of the Plex Solution, to the email address designated by you.
EXPORT CONTROL AND LEGAL COMPLIANCE. You represent and warrant that you are not (a) 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 (b) listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You hereby agree that (i) you will comply with all applicable Sanctions and Export Control Laws, (ii) you are solely responsible for ensuring that the Plex Solution is used, disclosed, and/or transported only in accordance with all applicable Sanctions and Export Control Laws, and (iii) you will not re-export or transfer the Plex Solution, in any form, directly or indirectly, to any person or entity based in Cuba, Iran, Syria, Sudan, South Sudan, or North Korea.
ENFORCING SECURITY. You may not use the Plex Solution or any of Plex’s data, systems, network, or services to engage in, foster, or promote illegal, abusive, or irresponsible behavior, including, without limitation, accessing or using Plex data, systems, or networks in an unauthorised manner, attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a Plex system or network, circumventing any Plex security or authentication measures, monitoring Plex data or traffic, interfering with any Plex services, collecting or using from the Plex Solution email addresses, screen names, or other identifiers, collecting or using from the Plex Solution information without the consent of the owner or licensor, using any false, misleading, or deceptive TCP-IP packet header information, using the Plex Solution to distribute software or tools that gather information, distributing advertisements, or engaging in conduct that it likely to result in retaliation against Plex or its data, systems, or network. Actual or attempted unauthorised use of the Plex Solution may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution, including, without limitation, punishment under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 under U.S. federal law. Plex reserves the right to view, monitor, and record activity through the Plex Solution without notice or permission from you. Any information obtained by monitoring, reviewing, or recording is subject to review by law enforcement organisations in connection with investigation or prosecution of possible criminal or unlawful activity through the Plex Solution as well as to disclosures required by or under applicable law or related government agency actions. Plex will also comply with all court orders or subpoenas involving requests for such information. In addition to the foregoing, Plex reserves the right to, at any time and without notice, modify, update, suspend, terminate, or interrupt operation of or access to the Plex Solution, or any portion of the Plex Solution in order to protect the Plex Solution or Plex.
INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. You acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this TOS, including, without limitation, with respect to unauthorised use of Plex proprietary assets, will cause irreparable injury to Plex, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and Plex would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that Plex shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this TOS. Accordingly, you hereby waive any requirement that Plex post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to Plex to enforce any provision of this TOS.
TERM AND TERMINATION. This TOS will take effect (or re-take effect) at the (and each) time you begin installing, accessing, or using the Plex Solution, WHICHEVER IS EARLIEST, and is effective until terminated as set forth below. Plex reserves the right to terminate this TOS at any time on reasonable grounds, which shall specifically include, without limitation, discontinuation of the Plex Solution (or related services) as an offering of the Plex business, nonpayment, termination of account, fraudulent or unlawful activity, or actions or omissions that violate this TOS, subject to the survival rights of certain provisions identified below. In addition, Plex shall have the right to take appropriate administrative and/or legal action in the event of breach or (alleged) criminal activity, including alerting legal authorities, as it deems necessary in its sole discretion. You may also terminate this TOS at any time by providing Plex with notice of cancellation, but all applicable provisions of this TOS will survive termination, as identified below. You may close your account by clicking here. Upon termination and in accordance with law, your right to access and use the Plex Solution shall cease (regardless of the subscription period) and you must immediately destroy all copies of any aspect of the Plex Solution in your possession. Termination shall result in deactivation or deletion of your account with Plex. The provisions concerning Content, License Grant Restrictions, Proprietary Rights, Permission to Use User Content, Proprietary Rights, Feedback, Confidentiality, Additional Terms and Conditions, Disclaimer of Warranty, Limitation of Liability, Indemnification (for a period of one year after termination), Arbitration, Governing Law, Enforcing Security, Injunctive Relief, Term and Termination, Waiver & Severability, and Entire Agreement will survive the termination of this TOS for any reason. Further, Plex shall not be responsible for any damage that may result or arise out of termination of this TOS.
WAIVER & SEVERABILITY. Failure to insist on strict performance of any of the terms and conditions of this TOS will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by Plex of any right under this TOS will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of this TOS is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers, venue, claim, and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable, provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this TOS shall continue in effect.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Plex as a result of this TOS or your utilisation of the Plex Solution, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Plex in any respect whatsoever. This TOS represents the entire agreement between you and Plex with respect to your individual use of the Plex Solution. This TOS is not assignable, transferable, or sub-licensable by you except with Plex’s prior written consent. Plex may transfer, assign, or delegate this TOS and its rights and obligations without consent. Please note that Plex reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of this TOS and the terms and conditions under which the Plex Solution and its offerings are extended to you by posting online a revised TOS or mailing and/or e-mailing notice thereof to you. In addition, Plex may add, modify, or delete any aspect, program, functionality, or feature of the Plex Solution. Your continued use of the Plex Solution following any addition, modification, or deletion will be conclusively deemed acceptance of any change to the terms and conditions of this TOS. Accordingly, please review this TOS found at this location on a periodic basis.
