Important Notice Regarding Arbitration
When you agree to these terms, by creating an account or by using the Site or any of the Services, you are agreeing, with limited exception, to resolve any disputes between you and Para through binding individual arbitration rather than in court. Please carefully review the section entitled “Dispute Resolution” for details regarding arbitration and the procedure to opt out of arbitration, should you choose to do so.
Changes to Terms and Services
Our Services are evolving, and hence we may update them and the Terms from time to time. If we modify the Terms, updates will be provided either by posting the updated Terms on our Site or App or through other communications. It is important that you review the Terms whenever we update them. If you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms, you are agreeing to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then, except as otherwise provided in the section entitled “Effect of Changes on Arbitration,” you may not use the Services anymore. We may, at our sole discretion, change or discontinue all or any part of the offerings we provide via our Services, at any time and without notice.
By using the Service, you expressly authorize and direct Para and our third-party service providers, on your behalf, to electronically retrieve your account information maintained by third-party data sources with whom you have a contractual relationship (“Your Account Information”). You agree that when Para retrieves Your Account Information, Para is acting as your agent, and not as the agent of or on behalf of any third party. You agree that third-party account providers shall be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization, agency and power of attorney granted by you. For purposes of this Agreement and solely to obtain and provide Your Account Information to you as part of the Service, you grant Para a limited power of attorney, and appoint Para as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third-party sites, servers, or documents, retrieve Your Account Information, and use Your Account Information.
