3. USAGE RULES
- Temporary Entitlements. A "Temporary Entitlement" is an Entitlement with a license to stream a select Movies Anywhere movie title and its resolution for a limited period of time. For clarity, a Temporary Entitlement will not become part of your My Movies collection.
- Streaming Movies Anywhere Content. Select Content can be streamed through the Movies Anywhere Service over an active Internet connection. The image quality will vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection, the device you use and the software currently installed on such device. Up to four (4) concurrent streams are allowed for each Movies Anywhere account at any time. Up to two (2) concurrent streams are allowed for the same Movies Anywhere-eligible movie for each Movies Anywhere account at any time.
- Downloading Movies Anywhere-Eligible Movies. Movies Anywhere Members may download Movies Anywhere-eligible movies to a maximum of eight (8) permitted Movies Anywhere-Compatible Devices (described further below in Section 6) for viewing. These downloads are in addition to downloads that may be permitted by Digital Retailers like Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, Xfinity, Verizon Fios TV and DIRECTV. The number of times you can download a single Movies Anywhere-eligible movie through your Movies Anywhere account to a Movies Anywhere-Compatible Device associated with your Movies Anywhere account is unlimited, as long as you do not exceed the device limits described in Section 6. Please note that you must connect your Movies Anywhere-Compatible Device to the Internet and login to your Movies Anywhere account at least once every ninety (90) days for your downloaded movies to remain available for playback through your Movies Anywhere-Compatible Device.
- Access Controls. The Movies Anywhere Service provides Movies Anywhere Members with access controls to restrict certain functionality within the Movies Anywhere Service. You may enable access controls by creating profiles within your Movies Anywhere account and managing the ratings that each profile has access to, which will restrict playback of Movies Anywhere-eligible movies from within that profile by rating. There are currently five (5) levels of restricted ratings: G, PG, PG-13, R, and All. However, restricting access to a Movies Anywhere-eligible movie by rating does not restrict access to the bonus materials associated with that movie. Please note that profiles are set on a device-by-device basis. This means that any profile (and its associated access control) you set on one device will not automatically apply to your other devices. To apply that same access control on your other devices, you will need to independently select the profile with the desired access control on each of your devices.
- Future Unavailability. Subject to these Usage Rules, there is no limit to the number of times you can download or stream Movies Anywhere-eligible movies from your My Movies collection; however, it is possible that those movies may not be available for subsequent re-download or stream at any given time. Movies Anywhere will take reasonable efforts to provide you with as much prior notice as possible; however, Movies Anywhere shall have no liability to you in such event.
4. DIGITAL RETAILERS
- Connecting. Currently, Apple iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, Xfinity, Verizon Fios TV and DIRECTV are "Digital Retailers" of the Movies Anywhere Service. Additional Digital Retailers may become available at any time, with or without notice. The total number of Digital Retailers may vary at any given time. If you have an account with a Digital Retailer, you may connect your Movies Anywhere account with your Digital Retailer account. Only one Movies Anywhere account can be connected with one account at each connected Digital Retailer at any one time. These accounts may be individually disconnected by you at any time. However, an individual Digital Retailer account to which a Movies Anywhere account is connected cannot be switched to a different account with such Digital Retailer more than once in any 180 day period. Connecting your Movies Anywhere account with your Digital Retailer account(s) will enable automatic Entitlement Sharing between Movies Anywhere and all connected Digital Retailer(s).
- Independent Rules. While on or using a Digital Retailer's website, application or service, you will be subject to that Digital Retailer's rules and restrictions including its privacy policies. Movies Anywhere assumes no responsibility or liability for any Digital Retailer or its websites, applications or services.
- Transactions. Currently Movies Anywhere does not directly handle transactions for any products. However, you may follow links within the Movies Anywhere Service to purchase products directly from a connected Digital Retailer. All such transactions are subject to applicable license terms and conditions and will be directly between you and the Digital Retailer. You should directly contact the Digital Retailer for any refunds or to resolve any problems with such transactions.
5. PARTICIPATING STUDIOS
Currently, Movies Anywhere brings you titles from The Walt Disney Studios (including Twentieth Century Film), Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. ("Participating Studios"). Additional Participating Studios may become available at any time, with or without notice. The total number of Participating Studios may vary at any given time.

Prizes cannot be transferred (except to a child or other family member) or sold by winners.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MOVIES ANYWHERE, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, AGENTS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND PARTICIPATING STUDIOS AND THE PARTICIPATING STUDIOS' RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES (COLLECTIVELY, THE "MOVIES ANYWHERE PARTIES") EACH EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, COMPATIBILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY AND NONINFRINGEMENT, AND THEIR EQUIVALENTS UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY JURISDICTION.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE MOVIES ANYWHERE PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS AND PROPERTY DAMAGE, EVEN IF WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE CONTENT OR THE MOVIES ANYWHERE SERVICE, HOWEVER CAUSED. NOR SHALL WE BE HELD LIABLE FOR DELAY OR FAILURE IN PERFORMANCE RESULTING FROM CAUSES BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. THE LIABILITY LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 11(K) APPLY UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY (TORT, CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF THE MOVIES ANYWHERE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN NO EVENT SHALL MOVIES ANYWHERE'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES (OTHER THAN AS MAY BE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN CASES INVOLVING PERSONAL INJURY) EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID ANY DIGITAL RETAILER FOR ANY MOVIE THAT BECOMES PART OF YOUR MY MOVIES COLLECTION.
- Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.
- Arbitration of Disputes. You and Movies Anywhere agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and the Movies Anywhere Parties, except for disputes relating to the enforcement of the intellectual property rights of the Movies Anywhere Parties. "Dispute" includes any dispute, action or other controversy between you and us concerning the Movies Anywhere Service or these terms, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis. You and Movies Anywhere empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable.
- Notice. In the event of a dispute, you or Movies Anywhere must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to Movies Anywhere, 500 South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, California 91521-7620, USA, Attention: Movies Anywhere Legal/Arbitration Notice. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Movies Anywhere will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.
- Non-resolution. If you and Movies Anywhere do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by the JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services ("JAMS") in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the "JAMS Rules"). The JAMS Rules and instructions about how to initiate an arbitration are available at www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or Movies Anywhere) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, if the arbitrator issues you an award of damages and: (A) that award is greater than the amount of our last written settlement offer; or (B) if we did not make a settlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator's services, we will reimburse you for the filing fees you incurred.
- Venue. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in either Los Angeles, California or the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, whichever is more convenient for you; provided, however, that if circumstances prevent you from traveling to Los Angeles or New York, JAMS may hold an in-person hearing in your hometown area.
Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California and Manhattan, New York, New York, nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed as consent by the Movies Anywhere Parties, or their affiliates to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes, claims or controversies unrelated to the Movies Anywhere Service, or this Agreement.
- No Class Action. PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor the Movies Anywhere Parties will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
- Choice of Forum. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Movies Anywhere Terms that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.
- Choice of Law These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
- Severability. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
- Survival. The provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall survive such termination.
