Our Service may integrate with other services on a number of platforms provided by third parties, including E-commerce Payment Processors (as defined below). Please be aware that your activities on each of these platforms may be subject to additional terms of service for that particular platform.
Certain parts of the Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time; your use of such Service is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference.

A description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed, including the URL (internet address) or other specific location on the Service where the material you claim is infringed is located. Include enough information to allow Vev to locate the material, and explain why you think an infringement has taken place.
A description of the location where the original or an authorized copy of the copyrighted work exists — for example, the URL (internet address) where it is posted or the name of the book in which it has been published
Your address, telephone number, and email address
A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law
A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf, and
An electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest
If you believe that the content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
Your physical or electronic signature
Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled
A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content, and
Your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within the Central District of California and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Vev will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member, or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Vev has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Vev’s sole discretion, the memberships of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Vev may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, update, or change the Terms of Service ("Updated Terms") from time to time, so you should review this page periodically. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the “last modified” date at the top of this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service. Vev is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us.
Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, we will provide reasonable advance notice before the Updated Terms become effective. Vev may provide such notifications, whether the notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Vev in our sole discretion. Vev reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification by contacting us at email@example.com. You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Service, and that your use of the Service after the effective date of the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms of Service and any Updated Terms before using the Service. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Service from that point forward. The Terms of Service will govern any disputes arising before the effective date of the Updated Terms.
INFORMAL NEGOTIATIONS. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (“Dispute”), you and Vev agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is your billing address, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to Vev. Vev’s address for such notices is Verdensvev AS, Fredensborgveien 24A, 0177 Oslo.
BINDING ARBITRATION. If you and Vev are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, all claims arising from use of the Service (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, Vev will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and Vev may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
EXCEPTIONS TO ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court or to seek injunctive or other equitable relief on an individual basis in a federal or state court located within the Central District of California with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights.
WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and Vev agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between Vev and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND Vev ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Vev otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” Section will be deemed null and void.
LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California. You and Vev agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the California state and Federal courts located in San Francisco, California have exclusive jurisdiction and you and Vev agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Vev without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
The Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance by Norwegian law, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the Oslo District Court, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.
The Service is controlled and operated from its facilities in Norway. Although the Service may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that the Service or the materials on the Service are appropriate or available for use in locations outside of Norway, and accessing the Service from territories where its use is illegal is prohibited. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable Norwegian and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You could be denied access to the service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States and/or Norway, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government and/or Norwegian Government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in Norway.
The Terms of Service represent the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter addressed herein and supersedes all prior to contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written or oral. The Terms of Service shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and lawful assigns.
Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provisions of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our rights to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
In any action to enforce the Terms of Service, the prevailing party shall be entitled to attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and costs.
You agree that Vev's remedy at law for any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement would be inadequate and that Vev shall be entitled to specific performance or injunctive relief, or both, in addition to any damages that Vev may be legally entitled to recover, together with reasonable expenses of any form of dispute resolution, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees.
No right or remedy of Vev shall be exclusive of any other, whether at law or in equity, including without limitation damages injunctive relief, attorneys' fees, and expenses.
No instance of waiver by Vev of its rights or remedies under these terms and conditions shall imply any obligation to grant any similar, future, or other waiver.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER SECTION BELOW. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
