Welcome to outRise.
We want you to know and understand your rights and our rights relating to the provision of the Services (as defined below). Please review them carefully. Here are a few highlights:
- Our services are currently available in Canada and The United States of America.
- You own your content, but give us the right to use it.
- We expect members to act with respect and we can cancel your account if you act inappropriately.
- outRise is not liable for your activities and no warranties are made by outRise.
- When using navigation it is your sole responsibility to maintain situational awareness. outRise provides navigation on an as-is basis. You understand that any navigation product is imperfect.
- You agree to arbitrate if there is any dispute between us.
Terms of Service
If you access or use the Services on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent that you have authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms and that it is fully binding on them. In such case, the term “you” will refer to such entity and its affiliates. If you do not have authority, you may not access or use the Services. These Terms contain disclaimers of warranties and limitations on liability that may be applicable to you.
The OutRise Services cannot be provided and the Agreement described in these Terms of Service cannot be performed without OutRise processing data about you, and other OutRise members, including your location data. Processing of the data you share with OutRise, including location data, is essential to the Services which we provide and a necessary part of our performance of the Agreement we have with you.
Notice Regarding Dispute Resolution: These Terms contain provisions that govern how disputes between you and OutRise are resolved, including an agreement to arbitrate, which will, unless you reside in the European Union, with limited exception, require you to submit claims you have against us to binding and final arbitration and limit you to claims against OutRise on an individual basis, unless you opt-out in accordance with the instructions below.
Registration and Accounts
The Services are intended solely for persons who are 13 years old or such higher age required in your country to use the Services. If you are under the legal age to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction, you represent that your parent or legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to these Terms on your behalf.
To use the Services, you must register. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (“Member Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Member Data. You agree that OutRise may use your Member Data to provide Services that you access or use and as otherwise set forth in these Terms. If you provide any Member Data that is inaccurate or not current, or OutRise has reasonable grounds to suspect that such Member Data is inaccurate or not current, OutRise has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse current or future use of the Services. In consideration of your use of the Services, you represent that you are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password associated with your account and for restricting access to your password, your computer, and mobile device while logged into the Services. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or from your computer and mobile devices. We endeavor to use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your account. However, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your account, your Content (as defined below), or the personal information you provide, and we cannot promise that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally accessing the Services or its contents. You agree to immediately notify OutRise of any unauthorized use of your account or password or any other breach of security, and confirm that you understand all risks of unauthorized access to Member Data and any other information or Content you provide to OutRise.
You may register for or log-in to your account via a third-party network, such as OutRise or Google. If you do so, you hereby authorize OutRise to pre-populate the registration and other relevant information fields of your account and/or to use such third-party credentials to log you into your account. If you connect your account to a third-party network, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions and policies applicable to such third party.
You may user our built-in navigation product or link to a product provided by the Third Party though outRise. If you do so, you hereby authorize OutRise to use your location to provide directions to the best of our abilities. You must use common sense while using any of the navigation products made available to you on outRise as map data may be imperfect or inaccurate. Motorists, pedestrians, bikers, hikers, etc. need to pay attention to road signs, trail signs, markers and must look where you are going, and use common sense so you do not put yourself or others into dangerous situations. If you receive directions you’re not comfortable with, stop immediately and assess your situation. Situational awareness is imperative, and your responsibility while using outRise. outRise services are imperfect, and all members must be aware of the dangers of executing any experience.

Claims of Infringement
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. OutRise also reviews claims of trademark infringement. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by OutRise infringe your copyright or trademark rights, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work or trademark claimed to have been infringed (or, if multiple copyrighted works or trademarks located on the Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow OutRise to locate the material on the Services; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright or trademark owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Please be advised that OutRise will not respond to complaints that do not meet these requirements. If OutRise determines that the materials alleged to infringe your copyright or trademark rights do not require removal, OutRise will remove those materials only pursuant to a court order declaring the Content or use of the materials unlawful.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Counter-notices must include the following information: (a) your name, address, and telephone number; (b) the source of the Content that was removed; (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good-faith belief that the Content was removed in error; (d) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located; or, if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which OutRise may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original complaint; and (e) a physical or electronic signature (for example, typing your full name).
Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Services must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see https://copyright.gov/title17/92appb.html) and should be sent to the agent identified below. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there may be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

Notice for California Members
Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, California Services members are entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, 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 that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only, and not as a class action, on behalf of the public, as a private attorney general, or other representative action. Except for this class action waiver, this clause may be severed or modified if necessary to render it enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act.
Exception—Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
Thirty-Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration- and class-action-waiver provisions set forth in this section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: OutRise, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 294 Pearl Rd, Brunswick, OH 44212 USA. The notice must be sent within 30 days of registering to use the Services; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, OutRise also will not be bound by them. In addition, if you elect to opt out of these arbitration provisions, OutRise may terminate your use of the Services.
Time Limitation on Claims
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with OutRise and these Terms must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred. This provision does not apply if you are based in the European Union in which case time limitations shall be determined in accordance with governing law for EU users mentioned below.
You acknowledge and agree that any violation of the Agreement may result in irreparable injury and damage to outRise or its licensors that may not be adequately compensable in money damages, and for which outRise will have no adequate remedy at law. You, therefore, consent and agree that outRise may obtain injunctions, orders, or decrees as may be reasonably necessary to ensure compliance with this Agreement. You hereby waive any requirement of the posting of a bond that may apply for issuance of any injunctions, orders, or decrees.
Choice of Law and Forum

Subject to the Section entitled “Dispute Resolution”, the parties irrevocably consent to bring any action to enforce this Agreement in the federal or state courts embracing Medina County, Ohio ,and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts embracing Medina County, Ohio. If any party hereto brings any suit or action against another for relief, declaratory or otherwise, arising out of these Terms, the prevailing party will have and recover against the other party, in addition to all court costs and disbursements, such sum as the court may adjudge to be reasonable attorneys’ fees. Except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, the parties agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. This paragraph does not apply to users who reside in the European Union.
