Lokalise Terms of Service
Last Updated: May 31, 2023
Welcome to Lokalise! We are glad that you are here, and we hope you enjoy everything we have to offer.
Please read these Terms carefully before accessing the Platform, because they contain important information about your rights and obligations while using Lokalise.
These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) govern access to, and use of, the Lokalise Platform and/or the Services by visitors to the Website, individuals or entities who create Accounts or purchase Subscriptions, and their Authorized Users. Hence, any persons being invited to a workspace set up by a Customer. Please see Section 1 “The Parties to these Terms” and Annex “Definitions” for details.
1. THE PARTIES TO THESE TERMS
By using the Platform and/or Services, you as a Customer or Authorized User accept these Terms whether on behalf of yourself or a legal entity you represent. Customers and Authorized Users may be referred to in these Terms as “you” and “your” as applicable.
When accepted by you (as defined below), these Terms form a legally binding contract between you and Lokalise.
By accepting these Terms, you are entering into a contract with Lokalise, Inc., a Delaware company with its registered address at: 3500 South DuPont Highway, Suite BZ-101, Dover, DE 19901, the USA (“Lokalise”, “we”, “us”).
Signing Up on behalf of a Legal Entity
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity (e.g., by using your corporate email domain), such as your employer or the company you work for, said organization or entity will be deemed to be the “Customer”. In this case, you agree that you have the legal authority to bind that entity and that the entity is duly incorporated and in good standing under any applicable law.
Signing Up in a Personal Capacity
If your workspace is being set up by someone who is not formally affiliated with an organization, a Customer is an individual who paid for the Subscription. For example, if you signed up using a personal email address and invited a couple of friends to work on the localization of your startup materials, but haven't formed a company yet, you are the Customer.
In this case, you must be at least 18 years of age and have the full legal capacity to accept these Terms. Check out the limitations of minors accessing the Platform here.
2. EXECUTION OF THESE TERMS
By accessing the Platform and/or using the Services in any manner, you agree to the Terms and any other related Contracts. Once accepted, these Terms remain effective until terminated as provided for in Section 17 "Term and Termination".
If you do not agree to the Terms or any other Contracts, you are not permitted to use our Services and you should not access the Platform.
If you do not understand these Terms, you are advised to seek independent legal advice or contact us with your questions at: email@example.com.
Any terms specified with a capital letter have a special meaning for the purposes of these Terms. If you see a word starting with a capital letter, please scroll to the Annex “Definitions” at the end of these Terms in order to clarify the meaning of a particular word and understand the entire context of any term and condition.
4. ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM
The Customer may exclusively provide us with instructions on the requested Services or assign and expressly authorize an Authorized User or Authorized Users as its agent to manage the Team’s Workspace (the “Team Owner”). The Team Owner may configure administration settings, assign access and use authorization, request different or additional Services, may provide access to a Team’s Workspace, enable or disable third party integrations, manage permissions, retention and export settings, transfer and re-assign roles on the Team’s Workspace and otherwise exercise its rights under these Terms.
The Customer may appoint an employee, agent or a third-party business partner, or contractor to act as its Team Owner or Team Owners, and may change their designation at any time through the Team Settings page.
The Customer has ultimate authority to replace you as a Team Owner or remove you from the Team at its own discretion without any notice to you.
Access by Authorized Users
During an active Subscription, adding more Authorized Users and assigning roles to them is fairly easy: an Authorized User who initially created the Team’s Workspace becomes an owner automatically, and invites all the other Authorized Users to the Team’s Workspace. All the other Authorized Users get an email invitation link from the ‘owner’ to join the Team’s Workspace.
Each Authorized User must agree to these Terms and all the other Contracts to activate their Accounts. Сheck out our Contracts for more information on setting up an Account and assigning roles on your Team’s Workspace.
5. PAYMENT TERMS
A valid and activated Subscription allows the Customer’s Authorized Users to access the Platform and use the Services. The Subscription specifies the number of Authorized Users a Customer is allowed to connect to the Platform. A Subscription is generally purchased through the Website, unless we have agreed with you to execute an individual Order Form.
The Subscription is automatically activated once we receive the Fees from the Customer. Your Subscription continues for the term specified in the “Billing” page at your Team's Workspace or the term specified in the applicable Order Form.
You are able to purchase a Plan, and you will be charged as described below. We offer a free Plan, and several Plans appealing to different types of Customers and their different requirements and wishes. Please visit our Pricing page for more details.
The Fees for your Subscription depend on the selected Plan. Lokalise will not change the Fees for Customers during an existing Subscription term. However, Lokalise reserves the right to change the Fees for a particular Plan starting from a new billing cycle, provided Customers have been given advance notice regarding the upcoming changes.
All Fees, refunds and Taxes due hereunder will be paid in U.S. dollars. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as expressly stated in these Terms, the Customer’s payments are non-refundable.
The Fees stated are exclusive of any Taxes. The Customer will be responsible for paying all Taxes and charges made under a chosen Plan, except for those taxes based on our net income. Should any payment for the Services be subject to withholding tax by any government, the Customer will reimburse us for said withholding tax in full.
Lokalise offers a 14-day free trial. Once you sign up for a free trial, you get access to the Enterprise plan trial with the right to invite up to fifty (50) Authorized Users to join the Workspace(s) created. You can sign up and use Lokalise for a trial without entering your credit card details.
At the end of a 14-day free trial, you will be able to continue using the Platform by switching to a paid Plan; otherwise, you will be downgraded to a Free Plan.
Your billing information will be required once you decide to upgrade to a paid Plan, unless we agree to invoicing of the Fees in a specific Order Form. Your first charge will occur on the date you accepted a paid Subscription by filling in billing information in your Account.
If we agreed on invoicing of the Fees in the Order Form, you will pay the Fees by the date specified on the applicable invoice issued by Lokalise. Please note that execution of Order Forms is available only for Customers subscribing annually to either an Enterprise Plan, Essential Plan or a Pro Plan.
Monthly Plan billing
Lokalise’s monthly Plans provide month-to-month access, with monthly charges being paid on each renewal day (the same day of the month that you originally signed up for the Plan). Monthly Plans automatically renew every month. If you cancel before an upcoming renewal day, you will have access to the Platform through to the end of the billing cycle.
Please note that we do not provide Order Form or invoicing options to Customers using monthly Subscriptions.
Annual Plan billing
Lokalise’s annual Plans provide year-to-year access and some savings compared to the month-to-month Plans. Annual Plans automatically renew every year, unless a Customer terminates the Subscription. If a Customer cancels the Subscription before the upcoming renewal date, said Customer will have access to the Platform until the end of the paid Subscription.
Annual charges will be paid on each renewal date (the same date of the year that you originally signed up for the Plan), unless otherwise is agreed in your Order Form. In this case, fees will be charged on the dates specified in the Order Form.
Customers that have executed Order Forms will be invoiced the Fees for each new billing cycle under the terms agreed in a specific Order Form.
Failed charges. Suspension
If the credit card you have on file is no longer valid or the billing information has changed, or if, for any reason, a charge is rejected, you will have to update your billing information on the Platform or provide us with details of a new payment account within a period of fourteen (14) calendar days after the initial charge has failed. Otherwise, we will suspend your access to the Platform
If you are unable to update your Account with the appropriate billing information, you can request that Lokalise at firstname.lastname@example.org send you an invoice detailing the outstanding Fees. If we agree to invoice a Customer by email, full payment must be received within ten (10) calendar days from the invoice date, unless otherwise agreed.
Please note that you will be automatically downgraded to a Free Plan after several failed attempts to charge your credit card, which might cause loss of some Customer Data.
We ask you to notify Lokalise in writing of any changes to your billing information or termination of any authorization at least five (5) calendar days prior to the immediately subsequent billing date.
Auto-Renewal. Cancellation policy. Refunds. Switching to another Plan
A Subscription will automatically renew at the end of the Subscription for a new period equal to the preceding term, unless you cancel the Subscription as set forth herein.
Fees during any automatic renewal term will remain the same as they were during the preceding term unless we have notified you of any change of Fees in advance.
You have the right to cancel the Subscription at any time through the Team Settings page where you can stop the Subscription from automatically renewing. These terms will be deemed terminated once you cancel the Subscription. Please see Section 17 “Term and Termination” for details.
Once a Customer cancels the Subscription, no additional charges will be taken, and the Customer can use the Platform until the prepaid Subscription term expires. However, no refunds (prorated or otherwise) are provided upon cancellation. In the interest of fairness to all our customers, no exceptions will be made.
If the Customer accidentally subscribed to an annual Plan instead of intention to subscribe for a monthly Plan, the Customer will have a right to claim request for a refund and change of a Plan to a monthly basis within 24 hours after the subscription was purchased.
If the Customer voluntarily downgrades or upgrades to another Plan, all the Fees prepaid but not used for the Services during the existing Subscription term will be offset against outstanding Fees of the newly elected Plan. Check out our Pricing page for more information about payment options.
If the Customer decides to increase the number of Authorised Users (seats) available per existing Subscription, he or she is charged (or invoiced) for the extra Fees as follows: extra Fees = the number of new seats * days left until the end of the billing cycle * seat price per day in that billing cycle.
If the Customer decides to decrease the number of seats available per existing Subscription, he is not refunded or credited with any amounts, and the seat number stays the same as outlined in the active Subscription until the end of the billing cycle. Then, on the next billing date, the Customer will be charged (or invoiced) for the new seat count, and the Fees will be decreased per the Customer's request for a reduced number of seats.
Customers that would like to switch Subscriptions from an annual to a monthly basis must contact us at: email@example.com, or via the in-app web support, for additional information. We will review each request on a case-by-case basis. Lokalise reserves the right to decline your application to change the annual billing cycle to a monthly one.
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that a voluntary downgrade to another Plan will result in a decrease in certain features and functionality of the Platform, as illustrated by comparing the Plans in our Pricing page and potential loss of access to Customer Data.
Downgrade for Non-Payment
If any Fees owed to us by the Customer (excluding amounts disputed reasonably and in good faith) are overdue by fourteen (14) calendar days or more, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, at our sole discretion cancel the unpaid Subscription with immediate effect and downgrade said Customer to a Free Plan until those amounts are paid in full.
In the case of a downgrade to a Free Plan your Content will be available for editing by all Authorized Users in your Team. However, you will be restricted from Transferring your Content (i.e., the Export/API functionality won't be available) through the Platform until you pay the outstanding Fees and upgrade to a paid Plan.
In the event of the foregoing, Lokalise shall not be obligated to provide any and/or all of the Services until such Fees are paid in full. Your terminated Subscription may be reactivated if valid payment information is entered and the card can be successfully processed for all Fees accrued on said Subscription since the failed credit card charge.
Payments for Translation Orders
Lokalise provides Customers with the opportunity to carry out translations of Customer Data by using translators available on the Platform. A Customer can define the scope of work and choose the languages that require a translation in order to receive an instant quote from the selected translation vendor.
Customers have the option to pay the quote immediately via the credit card linked to the Account. An alternative option is to top up the Account with Team credit and use this to pay for translation orders. In order to top up the Team credit, Customers can contact firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the amount that needs to be topped up in their Account. Lokalise will issue an invoice for the specified amount and will top up the Customer's Team Credit once the invoice is paid or the proof of payment is provided to Lokalise.
Lokalise for Intercom
Lokalise provides a multilingual support live chat for Intercom users. You can use the Lokalise for Intercom app in the Intercom App Store to enable this Service.
Please note that use of the Lokalise for Intercom app is governed by these Terms. You will become bound by these Terms by accessing and using the Lokalise for Intercom app.
Lokalise for Intercom is free of charge for its users, except for the "Lokalise for Intercom Pro" plan. Please contact us at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to enable "Lokalise for Intercom Pro".
Lokalise Apps Available at Third-Parties’ Resources
Please note that these Terms govern the use of Lokalise apps available at third-parties resources (e.g., online software stores, app stores, marketplaces). You will become bound by these Terms by accessing and using the Lokalise apps available at third-parties’ resources.

We also reserve the right to claim any damages or losses that we incur as a result of your violations of user restrictions. We also reserve the right to contact any law enforcement authorities in order to assess the liability of the persons involved.
9. THIRD-PARTY SITES, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Our Platform may include links to other third party applications, websites, products and services that could be integrated with our Services (the “Integrated Products”) solely as a convenience to our Customers. These Integrated Products may have their own terms and conditions of use and privacy policies and your use of these Integrated Products will be governed by and subject to their documentation.
These are not our Services, so we do not endorse any Integrated Products, and, are not responsible or liable for the behavior, features or content of any Integrated Products, and ultimately the Customer (and not Lokalise) will decide whether or not to enable them.
Furthermore, Lokalise makes no express or implied warranties with regard to the information, material, products or services that are contained on or accessible through Integrated Products. Any access or use of an Integrated Product is solely at your own risk, directly governed between you and the applicable third-party provider.
“Confidential Information” means (a) for Lokalise: the Lokalise Services; (b) for the Customer: Customer Data; (c) any other information relating a party that is disclosed in writing or orally and is designated as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure (and, in the case of oral disclosures, summarized in writing within ten (10) calendar days of the initial disclosure and delivered to the recipient), or that due to the nature of the information the recipient would clearly understand it to be confidential information of the disclosing party; and (d) the specific terms and conditions of these Terms, and any amendment and attachment thereof, agreed between Lokalise and a Customer in writing.
Restricted Use and Nondisclosure
If Lokalise is required by law to disclose Confidential Information, Lokalise will give prompt written notice to the Customer before making the disclosure, unless prohibited from doing so by the legal or administrative process, and assist the Customer to obtain, where reasonably available, an order protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure.
11. SERVICE LIMITATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS
Lokalise will not modify the functionality (e.g., tools, functions and features) of the Platform agreed with Customers per existing Subscriptions. However, Lokalise reserves the right to change the functionality of the Platform available under a specific Plan.
Any of these changes will be made for the Customer starting from a new Subscription period after the expiration of the current billing cycle, provided prior notice of upcoming changes in the functionality of the Platform available under a specific Plan has been given.
Lokalise will make commercially reasonable efforts to keep the Platform and Services operational. However, certain technical difficulties or maintenance may, from time to time, result in temporary interruptions.
To the extent permissible under any applicable law, Lokalise reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the functionality of the Platform and/or the Services for any technical or operational reasons that might adversely affect our Customers.
Such changes to the Platform and/or the Services might be made, depending on the circumstances, with or without notice and without liability to you for any interruption, modification, or discontinuation of the Platform and/or Services or any functionality thereof, except where prohibited by law.
You understand, agree and accept that Lokalise has no obligation to maintain, support, upgrade, or update the Platform or Service, or to provide all or any specific content or information through the Platform. This section will be enforced to the extent permissible by any applicable law.
Please note, that current status of Lokalise’s system metrics can be tracked by visiting our Status page.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR HEREIN, THE SERVICES AND ALL RELATED COMPONENTS AND INFORMATION ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU AGREE THAT USE OF THE SERVICES AND ALL RELATED COMPONENTS AND INFORMATION IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE. TO THE EXTENT YOUR JURISDICTION IMPOSES MANDATORY LAW THAT DOES NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES, THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Your Indemnification of Lokalise
The Customer (itself and on behalf of its Authorized Users) will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Lokalise and its Affiliates, sub-contractors, agents, licensors, content providers and services providers and their current and past directors, officers and employees (the “Lokalise Indemnified Persons”) from and against any and all third party claims, actions, suits, proceedings, and demands arising from or related to Customer’s or any of its Authorized Users’ access of the Platform and/or use of the Services in violation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claims related to any infringement of (i) the third party IP rights; and/or (ii) breach (violation) of any applicable Data Protection Laws (each individually referred to as a “Claim Against Us”), and will indemnify the Lokalise Indemnified Persons for any and all resulting loss, damages, judgments, awards, costs and all reasonable attorney’s fees incurred or finally awarded against the Lokalise Indemnified Persons in connection with or as a result of, and for amounts paid by the Lokalise Indemnified Persons under a settlement the Customer approves of in connection with, a Claim Against Us.
Lokalise must provide the Customer with prompt written notice of any Claim Against Us and allow the Customer the right to assume the exclusive defense and control, and cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting the Customer’s defense and settlement of such a matter. This section states your sole liability with respect to, and the Lokalise Indemnified Parties’ exclusive remedy against the Customer for, any Claim Against Us.
Our Indemnification of Customer
Lokalise will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Customer and its Authorized Users, current and past directors, officers and employees from and against any and all third party claims, actions, suits, proceedings, and demands alleging that the use of the Platform and/or the Services as permitted under the Terms infringes upon or misappropriates a third party’s IP rights (an “IP Claim Against Customer”), and will indemnify the Customer for all reasonable attorney’s fees incurred and damages and other costs finally awarded against the Customer in connection with or as a result of, and for amounts paid by the Customer under a settlement Lokalise approves of in connection with, an IP Claim Against Customer; provided, however, that Lokalise will have no liability if a Claim Against Customer arises from (a) Customer Data or Integrated Products; and (b) any modification, combination or development of the Platform that is not performed by us, including in the use of any application programming interface (the "API").
The Customer must provide us with prompt written notice of any IP Claim Against Customer and allow us the right to assume the exclusive defense and control, and cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting our defense and settlement of such a matter. This section states our sole liability with respect to, and Customer’s exclusive remedy against us for, any IP Claim Against Customer.
Limitations on Indemnifications
The party seeking indemnification will promptly notify the other party of the claim and cooperate with the other party in defending the claim. The indemnifying party has full control and authority over the defense, except that: (a) any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability or to pay any money will require that party's prior written consent, such consent is not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (b) the other party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense.
14. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO RECOVER DAMAGES FROM US.
Independent Allocations of Risk
The limitations under this “Limitations of Liability” Section apply with respect to all legal theories, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, and to the extent permitted by any applicable law.
Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages represents an agreed allocation of the risks of these Terms between the parties. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these Terms, and each of these provisions will apply even if the warranties in these Terms have failed of their essential purpose.
Limitation on Indirect Liability
Neither party will be liable under these Terms for diminution in value, lost profits or revenues or indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, even if the party knew or should have known that such damages were possible and even if direct damages are not a satisfactory remedy.
Limitation on Amount of Liability
Lokalise’s maximum aggregate liability to the Customer for damages of any kind that the Customer suffers in connection with access to the Platform and/or use of the Services is limited to the amount paid by the Customer to Lokalise in connection with the Services in the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the date of the last event giving the rise to the liability. This limitation shall apply whether an action is in contract or tort and regardless of the theory of liability.
Specific Exceptions from Liability
Lokalise shall have no responsibility for the legitimacy and/or accuracy of your Content, IP rights claims related to, or arising from, your Content; or any Transfers of Sensitive Information.
Lokalise has no responsibility and/or liability for any scheduled or unscheduled downtime or unavailability of the Platform and/or the Services for any reason whatsoever.

19. APPLICABLE LAW, MANDATORY ARBITRATION, WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE SET FORTH HEREIN, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LOKALISE WILL BE RESOLVED BY MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT AND/OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
Initial Dispute Resolution
Most disputes can be resolved without resorting to arbitration. If you have any dispute with us, you agree that before taking any formal action you will contact us at: email@example.com and provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information. Except for claims related to or arising from the IP Rights or violation of any applicable Data Protection Laws, You and Lokalise agree to use reasonable efforts on both sides to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with Lokalise, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
If we do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of fifty (50) calendar days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, either of us may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims as set forth below.
Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, the parties' relationship with each other, and/or your use of the Platform and/or the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules for claims that do not exceed $250,000 and the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for claims exceeding $250,000 in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration or the question of waiver by litigation conduct. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Filing a Demand
To start an arbitration, you must do the following: (a) Write a Demand for Arbitration that includes a description of the claim and the amount of damages you seek to recover (you may find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com); (b) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco California 94111; and (c) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fees & Costs
If your claim(s) total is less than US $5,000.00, then: (a) you may choose whether your participation in the arbitration will be conducted on the basis of documents provided to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing; (b) you will cover yourself all filing fees, attorney’s fees and other costs. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
No Jury Trial
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration section, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
Arbitration shall be initiated and take place in San Francisco, California, the United States of America, and you and Lokalise agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in the State of Delaware, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND LOKALISE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property
Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations, or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of intellectual property in any state or federal court with jurisdiction or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its IP rights.
Governing Law & Venue
These Terms will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without reference to its choice of law rules to the contrary.
Notwithstanding our agreement to mandatory arbitration, either party may seek any interim or preliminary injunctive relief, restraining order from a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Delaware, as necessary to protect the party's rights or property pending the completion of arbitration. The Customer and Lokalise submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of Delaware, U.S.A.
Sanctions and Export Policy
You may not access the Platform and/or any Services if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using the Platform or the Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to the Platform and the Services.
Entire Agreement. Conflict
Unless otherwise agreed to by Lokalise and you in writing, the Terms and the applicable Contracts constitute the entire agreement between Lokalise and you concerning the subject matter hereof.
If any part of the Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of the Terms and/or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term and/or condition or any subsequent breach thereof.
You may not assign your rights under the Terms to any other party without Lokalise’s express prior written consent; Lokalise may assign its rights under the Terms without any notice to any of its Affiliates. These Terms will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Except for payment obligations, neither Lokalise nor you will be liable by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of any obligations on account of events beyond the reasonable control of a party, which may include denial-of-service attacks, malware attacks, a failure by a third party hosting provider or utility provider, shortages, riots, fires, acts of God, war, strikes, terrorism, and governmental action.
All provisions of the Terms, which by their nature should survive termination of these Terms, shall survive such termination, including, without limitation, Sections 6, 7, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19 and 20.
No waiver by either you and/or Lokalise of any breach and/or default and/or failure to exercise any right allowed under the Terms is a waiver of any preceding and/or subsequent breach and/or default and/or a waiver and/or forfeiture of any similar and/or future rights under these Terms.
If You are offered or receive access to a Service or features on a free or trial basis, or as an alpha, beta, experimental, pre-release or early access offering (collective, "Betas"), Your use is limited to internal evaluation only and restricted to the time period designated by Lokalise (or if not designated, no more than 30 days).

YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT BETAS MAY BE INOPERABLE, INCOMPLETE, CONTAIN BUGS OR INCLUDE FEATURES THAT DON’T WORK AND ACCESS TO OR USE OF ANY BETA IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE, AND ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” ONLY. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE OR FEATURE IN BETA. ALSO BE AWARE THAT LOKALISE MAY TERMINATE OR SUSPEND ACCESS TO OR USE OF ANY BETA SERVICE OR FEATURE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE, AND LOKALISE MAY NEVER RELEASE A BETA SERVICE OR FEATURE, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. IN ALL CASES AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE TO THE CONTRARY, YOU HEREBY UNCONDITIONALLY UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT LOKALISE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY WITH REGARD TO ANY BETA SERVICE OR FEATURE WILL NOT EXCEED US$50.
