Effective Date: May 4th, 2020
ACCEPTANCE OF OUR TERMS
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) constitute a binding contract between you and Joseph Studios, LLC (“us” or “we” or “Joseph Studios”) governing the use of and access to the products and services offer in connection with a paid or trial subscription (“Products” or “Services”) to you and any authorized individuals engaged by you to use the Products on your behalf (each, a “User,” and collectively, “Users”). By using our services, or authorizing us to act on your behalf, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company, organization, or other legal entity (“Entity”), you agree to these Terms for that Entity and represent to Joseph Studios that you have the authority to bind such Entity and its affiliates to these Terms. In such case, “you” or “Customer” shall refer to such Entity and its affiliates. If you are a Customer’s User, then these Terms will apply to you to the extent they are applicable to Users. If Customer is an agency, then a User may also be an agency client as described in Section 10 (Agencies). If you do not have the authority to bind the Entity to these Terms or do not agree to these Terms, do not accept these Terms or use or access the Products.
You represent and warrant that the information you provide in registering and onboarding is accurate, complete, and rightfully yours to use.
You will either pay for your Plan in our Application, or upon receipt of an invoice issued by us.
Payment in Application
Monthly Plans. For monthly Plans, we will charge you on the first day of your subscription term and automatically on the same date of each subsequent month (“Monthly Pay Date”). We will continue to charge you for your Plan, including any Add-Ons, on a monthly basis until the plan is changed or canceled. If you cancel during the subscription term, you will not be issued any refunds or credits of any prepaid and unused fees for the remainder of the subscription term and you will continue to have access to the services for the remainder of the term.
Annual Plans. For annual Plans, we will charge you on the first day of your subscription term and automatically on the same date of each subsequent year (“Annual Pay Date”). We will continue to charge you for your Plan, including any Add-Ons, on an annual basis unless you decide to cancel prior to the Annual Pay Date by contacting your account manager or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel during the subscription term, you will not be issued any refunds or credits of any prepaid and unused fees for the remainder of the subscription term and you will continue to have access to the services until the following Annual Pay Date.
Payment By Invoice
If we invoice you for your Plan, your subscription term will be detailed on the service order and your payment will be due upon receipt of the applicable invoice. Unless otherwise specified on your service order, if we do not receive payment within thirty (30) days of us issuing you the invoice, your account may be suspended, you will lose access to the services, and any unpaid fees will be sent to collections or remitted by a court order. Unless otherwise specified on your service order, your Plan will automatically renew at the end of the subscription term. If you would like to cancel your Plan, you must provide such notice via email to email@example.com and comply with the cancellation terms.
Changes To Your Plan
If you choose to upgrade your Plan or add any Add-Ons to your Plan during your subscription term, you will be charged for the then-current price for the upgrade or Add-Ons prorated based on the number of days remaining in your subscription term. Unless otherwise specified on your service order, any upgrade or Add-Ons that you add will be coterminous with the existing Plan and automatically renew at the end of the subscription term along with your Plan. If you choose to downgrade your Plan or remove any Add-Ons from your Plan, you will not be issued any refunds or credits for the unused and prepaid fees in connection with the downgrade or removal. In-kind, you must comply with the cancellation terms. Downgrading your Plan may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account and we do not accept any liability for any such loss.
Credit Card, Stripe, and Paypal Authorization
By submitting your credit card or Paypal information to Joseph Studios, you authorize Joseph Studios to store this information with its third-party service providers and to charge the credit card or Paypal account you have provided to us until your account is terminated. In addition, you authorize us to use a third-party payment processor in processing payments. If your credit card expires, or is declined or your Paypal information requires an update, we will provide you notice via email. If for any reason, your payment cannot be completed through credit card or Paypal, we may suspend your services until we receive payment and all unpaid fees will be sent to collections or remitted via court order.
Disputes and Late Payments
You must notify us in writing of any amounts you wish to dispute prior to the date such amounts would otherwise be due. Any undisputed amount not paid when due shall be subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid. You will also be required to reimburse us for any costs or expenses (including any reasonable attorneys’ fees) we incur to collect past due amounts. Any amounts due under these Terms shall not be withheld or offset by you against amounts due to you for any reason.
All payments you make are exclusive of federal, state, local, and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings, and similar assessments (including, without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes, and value-added taxes). You agree to be responsible for the payment of all such charges, excluding taxes based upon our net income. All amounts payable by you hereunder shall be grossed up for any withholding taxes imposed by any foreign government on your payment of amounts to Joseph Studios.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
Termination by You
You may terminate your account GIVEN 30 DAYS (“notice period”) that you will be canceling services. Meaning, you will provide 30 days notice that you intend to cancel after 30 days, at which time the remainder of your current subscription will run its due course without further renewal after the notice period is over. Example: If for instance the date is March 15th and your subscription renews on March 20th, and you inform your account manager you wish to end services. Your subscription will still renew on March 20th, your notice period will end on April 15th, and your subscription will end on April 19th (one day prior to renewal date).
Termination must be given in writing to your account manager and payment for the final month (transition phase) must be made at the same schedule as in previous months. You will not be entitled to any refunds of any prepaid and unused fees, and any unpaid fees under your Plan for the applicable subscription term will become immediately due and payable. You may terminate your account and receive a prorated refund of any prepaid and unused fees if we fail to cure a material breach of these Terms within thirty (30) days of our receipt of written notice from you describing the breach.
Termination by Us
We may restrict the functionality of the services or temporarily suspend your account if we reasonably believe that you have violated these Terms. Unless we believe the need to restrict or suspend service is time-sensitive and requires immediate action without notice, or we are prohibited from providing notice under law or legal order, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you by email prior to such suspension. We will not be liable to you or any third parties for any of the foregoing actions.
We may terminate your services for any of the following reasons: (i) you fail to comply with these Terms, (ii) you do not pay your fees in accordance with the payment terms under your Plan, (iii) at the expiration of the subscription period of your Plan if we provide prior written notice to you, (iv) you become the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (v) if we determine you are acting or have acted in a way that negatively impacts or reflects on Joseph Studios or our current or prospective partners or customers. In no event will any termination by us for the foregoing reasons entitle you to any refunds of any prepaid and unused fees or relieve you of your obligation to pay any fees payable to us prior to the date of termination, and any unpaid fees under your Plan will become immediately due and payable. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, hateful, discriminatory or illegal activity may be grounds for immediate termination of your use of the service and may be referred to law enforcement authorities.
If your account is terminated, Joseph Studios reserves the right to delete any Content on our systems with no liability or notice to you. Once your Content is deleted, you will not be able to recover such Content, except any Content that remains on Third Party Services pursuant to the terms and conditions of such Third-Party Services.
The Indemnifier will hold harmless and indemnify the Indemnitee against any and all claims and actions arising out of the participation of the Indemnitee in the Activity, including, without limitation, Expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred in connection with any liability, suit, action, loss, or damage arising or resulting from the Indemnitee’s participation in the Activity, subject to the limits on indemnification described in the section titled Exceptions to Indemnification. Where prohibited by law, the above indemnification does not include indemnification of the Indemnitee against a claim caused by the negligence or fault of the Indemnitee, its agent or employee, or any third party under the control or supervision of the Indemnitee, other than the Indemnifier or its agent, employee or subcontractors.
In the case of a criminal proceeding, the Indemnifier will indemnify the Indemnitee against all amounts including, without limitation, Expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred by the Indemnitee subject to the limits on indemnification described in the section titled Exceptions to Indemnification.
Exceptions to Indemnification
The Indemnitee will not be entitled to indemnification from the Indemnifier for any Expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts incurred as the result of the Indemnitee’s participation in the Activity where:
- in the case of a civil claim, the Indemnitee did not act in good faith and in a reasonable manner;
- in the case of a criminal action, the Indemnitee had reasonable cause to believe its conduct was unlawful;
- the actions or conduct of the Indemnitee constituted willful misconduct or was knowingly fraudulent or deliberately dishonest;
- the Indemnitee will or has received payment under a valid and collectible insurance policy or under a valid and enforceable indemnity clause, bylaw or agreement, except where payment under this insurance policy, clause, bylaw or agreement is not sufficient to fully indemnify the Indemnitee in which case the Indemnifier will be responsible for any shortfall in payment received; or
- an action or proceeding was initiated in whole or in part by the Indemnitee whether alone or along with one or more other claimants unless the action or proceeding has the written consent of the Indemnifier.
Notice of Claim
In the event of any claim or action, the Indemnitee will promptly provide the Indemnifier with written notice of the claim or action and will notify the Indemnifier within five (5) business days of the commencement of any legal proceedings relating to the claim or action. The Indemnitee will provide the Indemnifier with all available information known to the Indemnitee relating to the claim or action.
Authorization of Indemnification
In any case where the Indemnitee requires indemnification, the Indemnifier will make the determination of whether indemnification is appropriate having given consideration to the terms described in the Exceptions to Indemnification section. If the Indemnitee disagrees with the determination of the Indemnifier then the matter must be referred for review and determination to independent legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee. In all cases the Indemnifier will bear all costs of any independent determination.
- The Indemnifier will bear the burden of proving that indemnification is not appropriate.
- The termination of any claim or action by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent will not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a reasonable manner or, in the case of a criminal action, that the Indemnitee had reasonable cause to believe that the Indemnitee’s conduct was unlawful.
Assumption of Defense
On being notified of any impending action or claim, the Indemnifier may, at its own Expense, participate in the defense of any action or claim and may, alone or with any other indemnifying party, assume the defense against the action or claim using counsel that are reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee.
Once the Indemnifier has notified the Indemnitee of the intention to assume the defense, the Indemnifier will no longer be liable to the Indemnitee for any further legal or other Expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnitee in relation to the defense of the claim. Once the Indemnifier provides notice to the Indemnitee that the defense of claim has been assumed by the Indemnifier, the Indemnitee may employ or continue to employ its own legal counsel however any fees or Expenses incurred by the Indemnitee subsequent to the notice of assumption of defense by the Indemnifier will be the sole responsibility of the Indemnitee.
Failure to Defend
If the Indemnifier elects not to assume the defense against the claim or action then the Indemnitee may defend against the claim or action in any manner the Indemnitee deems appropriate. The Indemnifier will promptly reimburse the Indemnitee for Expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and any other amounts actually and reasonably incurred in connection with the defense of the claim or action subject to the limits on indemnification described in the section titled Exceptions to Indemnification.
Settlement and Consent of Indemnifier
The Indemnitee will not settle any claim or action without first obtaining the written consent of the Indemnifier. The Indemnifier will not be liable for any amounts paid in settlement of any claim or action where written consent of the Indemnifier was not first obtained. The Indemnifier will not unreasonably withhold consent to any settlement.
Settlement and Consent of Indemnitee
The Indemnifier will not settle any claim or action without first obtaining the written consent of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee will not unreasonably withhold consent to any settlement.
The Indemnifier agrees to cooperate in good faith and use best efforts to ensure that the Indemnitee is indemnified and reimbursed for any and all Expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred in connection with the defense of any claim or action resulting from the participation of the Indemnitee in the Activity.
The Indemnitee agrees to cooperate in good faith and provide any and all information within the Indemnitee’s power as required for the defense of any claim or action and also to provide any and all information within the Indemnitee’s power as required to help in a determination of indemnification as described under the Authorization of Indemnification section.
No costs, charges or Expenses for which indemnity will be sought under this Agreement may be incurred without the Indemnifier’s written consent. Any required consent must not be unreasonably withheld.
All reasonable Expenses incurred by the Indemnitee to enforce this Agreement, and all costs of defending any Third Party claims or actions brought against the Indemnitee under this Agreement will be the sole responsibility of the Indemnifier subject to the limits on indemnification described in the section titled Exceptions to Indemnification.
Advances of Expenses
At the written request of the Indemnitee, the Indemnifier will advance to the Indemnitee any Expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the Indemnitee in defending any action brought against the Indemnitee. Where reasonable, and to minimize hardship to the Indemnitee, advance payments may be made prior to the disposition of any claim.
The Indemnitee agrees to repay to the Indemnifier any advance payments on Expenses where a determination is ultimately made that the Indemnitee’s behavior is not entitled to indemnification for reasons described under the Exceptions to Indemnification section.
The Indemnifier must take out and maintain insurance coverage with an insurer reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitee on terms reasonable and sufficient to indemnify the participation of the Indemnitee in the Activity.
If the Indemnifier fails to maintain adequate liability insurance, the Indemnitee may take out insurance and charge all costs to the Indemnifier.
The rights and obligations of the Indemnitee and the Indemnifier under this Agreement will continue: so long as the Indemnitee is or will be subject to any possible claim or threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, arbitrational, administrative or investigative that results from the participation of the Indemnitee in the Activity; or until terminated by an agreement in writing signed by both the Indemnifier and the Indemnitee.
Under this Agreement, indemnification will be unlimited as to amount.
Only payment and satisfaction in full of all amounts and charges payable under this Agreement and the due performance and observance of all terms, covenants and conditions of this Agreement will release the Indemnifier and the Indemnitee of their obligations under this Agreement.
No action or proceeding brought or instituted under this Agreement and no recovery from that action or proceeding will be a bar or defense to any further action or proceeding which may be brought under this Agreement by reason of any further failure in the performance and observance of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Agreement.
In the event that any indemnity payment is made under this Agreement, the Indemnifier will be subrogated to the extent of this payment to all of the rights of recovery of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee will take all action required and provide all information necessary to secure these rights and to fully enable the Indemnifier to take any action to enforce these rights in the recovery of the indemnity payment.
This Agreement may only be amended, terminated or canceled by an instrument in writing, signed by both the Indemnifier and the Indemnitee.
- Assignment of Indemnifier Rights and Obligations
- The rights and obligations of the Indemnifier as existing under this Agreement may not be assigned, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee.
- Assignment of Indemnitee Rights and Obligations
- The rights and obligations of the Indemnitee as existing under this Agreement may not be assigned, either in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the Indemnifier.

NEITHER PARTY NOR ITS AFFILIATES WILL, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY, UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, REVENUE, BUSINESS, OR DATA; BUSINESS INTERRUPTION; OR LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PARTY IS APPRISED OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING OR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE.
Monetary Cap on Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF JOSEPH STUDIOS AND OUR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTY CLAIMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY ACTION OR CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO JOSEPH STUDIOS UNDER THE APPLICABLE PLAN DURING THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL NOT IN ANY WAY LIMIT YOUR PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 4 ABOVE.

Independent Allocations of Risk. EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS OF THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES.

THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
State Prohibition of Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer of Implied Warranties. Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply.

These Terms will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of Georgia, U.S.A., without reference to its choice of law rules and not including the provisions of the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes.
You and Joseph Studios agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Joseph Studios’ Intellectual Property Rights. Under such limited circumstances, Joseph Studios may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Products, or intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described herein. In all other cases, both parties hereby agree to submit to arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rule with one (1) arbitrator to be selected by mutual agreement of the parties. If we cannot agree on the arbitrator selection, then the American Arbitration Association shall choose an arbitrator for us from the National Panel of Arbitrators. You agree that an arbitrator cannot award punitive damages to either party and to abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, which shall include, but not be limited to, the courts within Cherokee County, Georgia.
Waiver and Severability.
The waiver by Joseph Studios of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall not be deemed a further or continuing waiver of any other provision of these Terms, and any failure of Joseph Studios to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal for any reason, such provision shall be limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
Except for any service order, these Terms are the final and complete expression of the agreement between these parties regarding your use of the Products and Application. These Terms supersede, and the terms of these Terms govern, all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into these Terms. Joseph Studios will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to these Terms (whether or not it would materially alter this agreement) that is proffered by you in any receipt, invoice, acceptance, purchase order, confirmation, correspondence, or otherwise, regardless of Joseph Studios’ failure to object to such terms, provisions or conditions.
Relationship; Independent Contractor. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to constitute the parties as principal and agent, employer and employee, partners or joint venturers, nor shall any similar relationship be deemed to exist between the parties. Neither party shall have any power to obligate or bind the other party, except as specifically provided herein.
This Agreement contains all terms and conditions agreed to by the Indemnifier and the Indemnitee. Statements or representations which may have been made by either Party in the negotiation stages of this Agreement may in some way be inconsistent with this final written Agreement. All such statements are declared to be of no value to either Party. Only the written terms of this Agreement will bind the Parties.
Any failure of either Party to enforce any of the terms, covenants and conditions in this Agreement does not infer or permit a further waiver of that or any other right or benefit under this Agreement. A waiver by one Party of any right or benefit provided in this Agreement does not infer or permit a further waiver of that right or benefit, nor does it infer or permit a waiver of any other right or benefit provided in this Agreement.
This Agreement will pass to the benefit of and be binding upon the Parties’ respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and permitted assigns.
The clauses, paragraphs, and subparagraphs contained in this Agreement are intended to be read and construed independently of each other. If any part of this Agreement is held to be invalid, this invalidity will not affect the operation of any other part of this Agreement.
All of the rights, remedies and benefits provided in this Agreement will be cumulative and will not be exclusive of any other such rights, remedies and benefits allowed by law or equity that the Parties may have now or may acquire in the future.
Time is of the essence in this Agreement.
