Dreamship reserves the right to withhold the provision of Services to you until your payment of the Fees is fully settled in Dreamship’s accounts. You acknowledge that you may be responsible for additional fees beyond the Service Fees and Additional Fees, such as processing fees charged to you by payments providers you use outside of our Services (such as PayPal, Shopify, Facebook, or other service providers), as well as all taxes associated with your use of the Services other than U.S.-based taxes assessed directly to Dreamship independent of any transaction with you.
Dreamship reserves the right to pause or cancel payments at any time.

Dreamship may accept or reject Pre-Payment at its sole discretion, and may condition acceptance of Pre-Payment upon your acceptance of additional terms and conditions which may be modified by Dreamship at any time upon written notice to you. If Dreamship reasonably believes that you are violating these Terms or the intellectual property rights or other rights of Dreamship, Suppliers, or third-parties, Dreamship reserves the right to charge your Payment Method or use Pre-Payment amounts in order to cover any fees, charges, or other losses incurred by, or that could potentially be incurred by, Dreamship as a result of your actions or omissions.
- Credits. Dreamship may grant your Account credit that can be used solely to pay Fees (“Credits”) in accordance with these Terms. You acknowledge and agree that Credit is granted by Dreamship’s sole discretion, does not reflect actual amounts paid (either to satisfy Fees owed or as Pre-Payment), and the terms and conditions governing the redemption of Credit can be modified at any time and for any reason. Dreamship reserves the right to reduce Credit in an amount equal to any outstanding balances associated with your Account in order to satisfy amounts you owe to Dreamship.

Dreamship will deduct the Monthly Payment from your Advance until your Advance would be insufficient to cover the next upcoming Monthly Payment, at which point Dreamship reserves the right to request and collect another Payment from you (and treat it as a second Advance) and reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Ad Platform Services during the time such requested Payment remains unpaid. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars or any other currency as Dreamship and you may agree. Except as set forth in Section 4(b) below, all Advances and Monthly Payments are non-refundable.
- Payment to Dreamship: Deposits. In addition to Advances and Monthly Payments, Dreamship may collect a one-time, up-front deposit in the amount of $10,000 (a "Deposit"), which Dreamship will hold for the duration of your use of the Ad Platform Services.

- If you cease using the Ad Platform Services (whether at your election, an Ad Platform removes you from the Ad Platform and Dreamship then terminates your use of the Ad Platform Services, or Dreamship terminates your use of the Ad Platform Services for any other reason in its sole discretion, including, without limitation, for your violation of these Terms), then Dreamship will credit back to you any remaining amounts left in your Advance as of the date your access to the Ad Platform Services is terminated; provided, that Dreamship may retain your Deposit as liquidated damages in accordance with Section 4(g) below
- If you achieve certain volume thresholds with respect to use of the Ad Platform Services (such thresholds to be communicated to you by Dreamship), Dreamship may issue you a credit for use of the Ad Platform Services in an amount communicated to you that may be modified from time to time in Dreamship's sole discretion. For clarity, this credit will have no cash value, and will be redeemable for future use of the Ad Platform Services only.
- Collecting your Payment. All Monthly Payments will be enabled by Dreamship using the preferred payment method designated in your Account. You are solely responsible for maintaining and/or updating the payment information on your Account and if Dreamship is unable to withdraw a Payment from you for any reason, it will suspend your access to the Ad Platform Services until such Payment can be withdrawn. Any failure by you to provide Dreamship with accurate payment information, or to update any changes to your payment information, may result in suspension or termination of your access to the Ad Platform Services.

You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of Your Content or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases necessary to grant Dreamship the license to Your Content as set forth herein; (ii) neither Your Content, nor your submission, uploading, publishing, or otherwise making available Your Content, nor Dreamship's use of Your Content as permitted herein will infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate a third party's intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation. You agree that Your Content will not be false, misleading, inaccurate, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive or inappropriate as determined in Dreamship's sole discretion.
- Dreamship uses data generated from your use of the Ad Platform Services, including, without limitation, any data generated from use of Your Content, to improve the Ad Platform Services.

You further acknowledge and agree that Your Content or any Ad Platform Accounts may be flagged by an Ad Platform and removed from such Ad Platform.

THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES CLAUSE HEREIN IS INTENDED TO COVER REPUTATIONAL AND OTHER LOSSES INCURRED BY DREAMSHIP DUE TO YOUR ACTIONS AND THAT QUANTIFYING LOSSES FROM YOUR ACTIONS IS INHERENTLY DIFFICULT INSOFAR AS YOUR ACTIONS MAY IMPACT DREAMSHIP'S REPUTATION. THE PARTIES FURTHER STIPULATE THAT THE AGREED SUM IS NOT A PENALTY, BUT RATHER A REASONABLE MEASURE OF DAMAGES, BASED UPON THE PARTIES' EXPERIENCE IN THE INDUSTRY AND GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR ACTIONS. IN THE EVENT THAT THE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES CLAUSE SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO BE PENAL IN NATURE BECAUSE IT GIVES THE AGGRIEVED PARTY THE OPTION TO INVOKE IT, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES PROVISION WILL APPLY AND THE OPTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
- Facebook Ads. As part of the Ad Platform Services, Dreamship may create an Ad Platform Account on Facebook ("Facebook Ad Platform Account"). Any such Facebook Ad Platform Account will be subject to, and governed by, these Terms (including, without limitation, this Section 4 and the terms and conditions related to Accounts and Ad Platform Accounts). Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to each Facebook Ad Platform Account, you expressly acknowledge and agree to the following additional terms:
- Any Facebook Ad Platform Account and any of Your Content therein is each governed by Facebook's Advertising Policies (found here: https://www.facebook.com/policies/ads/).

To the extent that Dreamship is required to enter into a contract, agreement, or other understanding with an Ad Platform in order to provide the Ad Platform Services to you, you expressly waive any rights you may have as a third-party beneficiary to such contracts, agreements, or understandings. Accordingly, in no event will the Ad Platform Services (including, without limitation, the creation of any Ad Platform Account) create any third-party beneficiary rights in your (or any other third party's) benefit.
5. Fulfillment Terms.
As part of the Services, Dreamship may provide you access to certain product fulfillment services through which you can place orders for products supplied by third parties (such third parties, "Suppliers", and such Suppliers' products, "Third-Party Products") and Dreamship will provide fulfillment services with respect to such Third-Party Products (collectively, the "Fulfillment Services") as set forth on the Dreamship Site. Your use of the Fulfillment Services is governed in all aspects by these Terms, including, without limitation, this Section 5.
- Payment. In exchange for your use of the Fulfillment Services, you will be charged for the cost of the Third-Party Product, any shipping costs and any other transaction fees communicated to you (collectively, "Product Payments").

You are solely responsible for maintaining and/or updating the payment information on your Account and if Dreamship or the applicable Supplier is unable to withdraw a Product Payment from you for any reason, then the Third-Party Product will not be fulfilled (nor will you be able to otherwise use the Fulfillment Services) until such payment information is updated, accurate and complete. Any failure by you to provide Dreamship with accurate payment information, or to update any changes to your payment information, may result in suspension or termination of your access to the Fulfillment Services.

When such a situation occurs, you will be informed that the applicable Supplier is unavailable.

A Supplier's processing, shipping and delivery timeframes will be communicated to you, either on the Dreamship Site or through another method. If a Third-Party Product is unavailable, then Dreamship will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove it (or cause it to be removed) from the Fulfillment Services; however, Dreamship will have no liability to you if any Third-Party Product is unavailable for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, due to Dreamship's failure to remove it from the Fulfillment Services or any other failure to communicate its status to you.
- Returns; Damaged or Defective Products. All returns and terms with respect to damaged or defective products are subject to the applicable Supplier's return and refund policy.

- DMCA and Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement. When Dreamship receives proper notice of intellectual property infringement, Dreamship will endeavor to respond promptly and, if required to protect intellectual property rights or otherwise by law, remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. Dreamship will make a reasonable attempt to contact the user who uploaded or provided the allegedly infringing material, provide information about the notice and removal (including the name and email address of the reporting party(, and provide information about how to submit a counter notice (if applicable in the case of alleged copyright infringement). Dreamship may request additional information before processing a notice, such as identity verification of the reporting party and documentation confirming that the reporting party has the claimed legal rights with respect to the applicable intellectual property. Dreamship reserves all rights under applicable law to reject notices or counter notices that contain information that we reasonably believe to be false, fraudulent, incomplete, inaccurate, or otherwise submitted in bad faith.
Submitting a Take-Down Notice or Counter Notice. Dreamship will process and investigate all valid and properly submitted notices of intellectual property infringement as required by applicable law, including without limitation the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). Upon receipt of a valid and properly submitted notice under this Section 5(d), Dreamship will take appropriate actions as required by the DMCA or applicable law, including as necessary the expeditious removal of any material claimed to be infringing or claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. We will take commercially reasonable steps to notify the responsible party that we have removed material uploaded or provided by that party.
If you are a copyright, trademark, or intellectual property owner and you have a good faith belief that any Third-Party Content or other materials infringe your rights, you may submit a notification by emailing [email protected] and providing (i) identification of the material claimed to have been infringed, (ii) information reasonably sufficient to permit Dreamship to locate the material, (iii) your contact information, (iv) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material that is claimed to be infringing violates your intellectual property rights, that such use is not authorized by you or anyone else able to provide authorization or otherwise under the law (including without limitation under the doctrine of fair use), and (v) a statement made under penalty of perjury that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the intellectual property owner or authorized to act on behalf of the intellectual property owner for purposes of submitting notice to Dreamship. You acknowledge that failure to follow the process described in this Section 5(d) may result in Dreamship deeming your notice not valid.
If you are the recipient of a copyright infringement notice under applicable law and you have a good faith belief that you received that copyright infringement notice in error, you may submit a counter notice by emailing [email protected] and providing (i) identification of the material that has been removed, (ii) information reasonably sufficient to permit Dreamship to locate where the material was located as part of the Services, (iii) your contact information, (iv) a statement made under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of error, and (v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court in the jurisdiction in which you may be found and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the initial take-down notice relating to the applicable material. If within ten (10) business days of our receipt of your counter notice, the party who submitted the initial take-down notice does not provide us notice of an action in a court of competent jurisdiction alleging infringement of intellectual property rights, the material described in the counter notice may be restored by Dreamship or uploaded again by you. If you have any questions about the above described procedures, please consult an attorney.
7. Indemnity; Limitation of Liability.
- Indemnity. You agree to indemnify and hold Dreamship, its affiliates, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees and representatives, harmless from any claim or demand (including attorneys' fees and any fines, fees or penalties imposed by any regulatory authority) arising out of or related to your breach of these Terms or your violation of any law, rule or regulation, or the rights of any third party.

8. Arbitration Agreement.
- Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Dreamship agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Dreamship arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms or to your relationship with Dreamship as a user of the Service (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and Dreamship further agree that the arbitrator will have the exclusive power to rule on any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, existence, scope or validity of this agreement to arbitrate (this "Arbitration Agreement") or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim, including whether these Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement will survive termination of these Terms.
- Class Action Waiver. YOU AND DREAMSHIP AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Dreamship otherwise agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding.
- Waiver of Jury Trial; Certain Exceptions. You acknowledge and agree that you and Dreamship are each waiving the right to a trial by jury the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and Dreamship each agree that nothing in this Arbitration Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of their rights to (1) bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court or (2) bring an individual action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator.
- Procedure; Rules; Location. Either party may initiate arbitration proceedings by providing the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules (defined in the following sentence). The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be conducted in the county or parish in which you reside.
- Fees. Each party will be responsible for payment of its own fees as set forth in the AAA Rules.
- Choice of Law. Notwithstanding any choice of law provision in these Terms, the parties acknowledge and agree that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules will preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue will be resolved under the laws of the State of California.
- Severability. If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
- Severability and Waiver. Unless as otherwise stated in these Terms, should any provision of these Terms be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability will not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of these Terms, and the application of that provision will be enforced to the extent permitted by law. Any failure by Dreamship or any third-party beneficiary to enforce the Agreements or any provision thereof will not waive Dreamship's or the applicable third-party beneficiary's right to do so.
- Choice of Law. These Terms are governed by the internal laws of the State of California, United States, without regard to its choice or conflicts of laws principles. You and Dreamship agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that relates to or arises in connection with these Terms that is not subject to binding arbitration as set forth in Section 8.
- Assignment. You may not assign these Terms without Dreamship's prior written consent. Dreamship may assign these Terms without your consent to (1) a subsidiary or affiliate of Dreamship, (2) an acquirer of Dreamship's equity, business, or assets, or (3) a successor of Dreamship by merger or operation of law. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section 9(d) will be void.
- Survival. The provisions of Section 2(b), Section 3 through 9 will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms.
