The Services serve as a marketplace where people who seek to get tasks done, including individual consumers as well as businesses, are matched with independent assistants, receptionists, contractors and businesses (“Fulfillers”) who are reasonably capable of executing these jobs, tasks, or offers. Fulfillers are to be distinguished from Users (defined below) herein as “Fulfillers.” Fulfillers may be subject to independent contractor agreements overseen by Wing. The term "Users," on the other hand, will explicitly refer to parties in use of the Application or other Services seeking to get a task executed, subject to the terms of agreement of the user.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and your payment of any applicable fees, Wing grants you, whether as a User or as a Fulfiller, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access and make personal use of the Services.

Failure to do so may result in your inability to access the Services or in other forms of termination of access to the Services.
- Although Wing works to safeguard your account and passwords, you are solely responsible for protecting the confidentiality of your account and passwords.
- This excludes any known or unknown cyber attacks (via denial of service attacks, hacks, malware, worms, or otherwise), data breaches, or data malformation.

- Billing Services.
- As a User, you agree to pay the amounts charged for your use of the Services as described in this Section 5(a) below. “Charges” include any fares described below (“Fares” and other applicable fees), in addition to any voluntary tip you may elect to give to a Fulfiller.
- Fares: Fares consist of a base charge and any adjustments based on location and category of task.
- Market Adjusted Pricing: Fares are subject to change based on demand at a rate determined by either our patented pricing algorithm, market conditions.
- Service Fee: Wing may consider levying additional service fees but the right to do so shall remain retained to Wing itself entirely.
- Cancellation Fee: After you the User requests a task you may cancel it through the Application, but be aware that in certain cases a cancellation fee may apply, as referenced in the Cancellation Policy for Wing.
- Insurance Fee or Safety Fee: There may be a required charge to cover the cost of corporate insurance ensuring liabilities are accounted for and can be mediated in a reasonable manner.
- Toll Fee: Toll fees in some instances may occur if the User does not indicate that toll roads should not be used, as our Fulfillers will assume that Users would prefer convenience and efficiency in terms of the speed with which or time at which the task is done.
- Subscription Fee: Wing, dependent on the use of the Services, will charge a monthly Subscription Fee concurrent with the selected plan.
- Credit Cards and Debit Cards:
- Authorization: Upon the addition of a new payment method or each task request, Wing may seek authorization of your selected payment method to verify the payment method, ensure the task cost will be covered, and protect against unauthorized behavior. The authorization is not a charge; however, it may reduce your available credit by the authorization amount until your bank's next processing cycle. Should the amount of our authorization exceed the total funds on deposit in your account, you may be subject to overdraft or non-sufficient funds charges by the bank issuing your debit or check card. We cannot be held responsible for these charges and are unable to assist you in recovering them from your issuing bank.
- Fraud Prevention: Wing may rely on third-party payment gateways to handle credit card and debit card authorization, payments, and card management and cannot be held responsible for data breaches, data loss, malformation of data as a result of cyber attacks, data breaches, data loss, or malformation of data affecting the third-party payment gateway. Our choice of third-party payment gateways will still adhere to our standards of adequate User payment data security, meaning always maintaining PCI Service Provider Level 1 compliance, utilizing TLS (SSL) connections in data transit, and storing sensitive card information in an encrypted format.
- Certain features of the Services will be provided for a fee. In most cases, you will be given an opportunity to view a price estimate for such features and choose to accept prior to paying the fee.
- Wing has the authority and reserves the right to adjust and modify pricing, based on type of request, time of day, or location. Although we employ methods to make users fully aware of the final price they will be paying, you are responsible for the payment of the final price regardless of your awareness of such Charges.
- All Charges are non-refundable and apply at all times regardless of Application usage or termination of usage, unless a User has a demonstrable basis for a refund - please contact our Support Center to request a refund.
- Wing in its sole discretion may offer refunds on a case by case basis.
- Credit and Task Discounts: You may receive credits ("Wing Credits") that you can apply towards the payment of charges. They may or may not be not transferable or redeemable for cash, except as required by law.
- If you are a Fulfiller, you will carry out or execute tasks as requested by Users within your scope of claimed experience and expertise ("Fulfiller Services") and receive payment for your provision of such Fulfiller Services ("Payment"). Payment and transactions are subject to a commission by Wing, referenced below. You may also receive tips provided by Users to you.
- Commission: In exchange for permitting you to offer your services through the Services as a Fulfiller, you agree to pay Wing (and permit Wing to retain) a fee based on each transaction in which you provide Fulfiller Services ("Commission"). The amount of the applicable Commission may be communicated to you in a Commission schedule through our website. Wing reserves the right to change the Commission at any time in Wing's discretion based upon local market factors, and Wing will provide you with notice in the event of such change. Continued use of the Services after any such change in the Commission calculation shall constitute your consent to such change.
- Pricing: You expressly authorize Wing to set the prices on your behalf for all Charges that apply to the provision of your Fulfiller Services. Wing reserves the right to change the Charges schedule at any time in our discretion based upon local market factors. We will communicate relevant changes to the base fare unit amounts that would result in a change in the applicable Payments or transactions. Charges may be subject to maximum limits as set forth in your market's Wing Cities page or the Wing Support Center.
- Payment Adjustment: Wing reserves the right to adjust or withhold all or a portion of Payment if it believes that (i) you have attempted to defraud or abuse Wing or Wing's payment systems, or (ii) in order to resolve a User complaint (e.g., you took an inefficient route or failed to properly end a particular instance of Fulfiller Services in the Application when a task was completed). Wing's decision to adjust or withhold the Payment in any way shall be exercised in a reasonable manner.
- Carrier Rates: We currently provide our services on our Application for little to no cost, but be aware that your carrier rates, such as text messages and data charges, will still apply, and you will be responsible for such cost.We also provide services on our website for little to no cost, but be aware that your carrier rates still apply, and charges you receive will not signify or entail that Wing is responsible; you will be responsible for such cost.

- Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
- As part of the agreement to lawfully permit the use of the Services in the manner disclosed in these Terms, you the User will be required to resolve disputes with Wing on an individual basis through determent, final, and binding arbitration. By entering into these Terms you fully acknowledge that you have read and understand the provisions of these Terms and have exercised reasonable caution in considering the consequences of consenting to these Terms. YOU AND WING MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BY ARBITRATION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.
- Agreement to Binding Arbitration Between You and Wing.
- This agreement to arbitrate (the "Arbitration Agreement") is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and survives after the Terms terminate or your relationship with Wing ends. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Except as expressly provided below, the Arbitration Agreement applies to all Claims (defined below) between you and Wing, including our affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, successors, and assigns, and each of our respective officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, agents, and shareholders.
- EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED BELOW, ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN US (EACH, A "CLAIM," AND COLLECTIVELY, "CLAIMS") SHALL BE EXCLUSIVELY RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION SOLELY BETWEEN YOU AND WING. These Claims include but are not limited to any dispute, claim, or controversy, whether based on past, present, or future events, arising out of or relating to: these Terms and prior versions thereof (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof), the Services, any other goods or services made available through the Services, your relationship with Wing, the threatened or actual suspension, deactivation, or termination of your User Account or these Terms, payments made by you or any payments made or allegedly owed to you, any promotions or offers made by Wing, any city, county, state, or federal wage-hour law, trade secrets, unfair competition, compensation, breaks and rest periods, expense reimbursement, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, fraud, defamation, emotional distress, breach of any express or implied contract or covenant, claims arising under federal or state consumer protection laws, claims arising under antitrust laws, claims arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act, and claims arising under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (except for individual claims for employee benefits under any benefit plan sponsored by Wing and covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or funded by insurance), and state statutes, if any, addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other federal and state statutory and common law claims. All disputes concerning the arbitrability of a Claim (including disputes about the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement) shall be decided by the arbitrator, except as expressly provided below.
- BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND WING ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ALL CLAIMS, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. The Arbitration Agreement is intended to require arbitration of every claim or dispute that can lawfully be arbitrated, except for those claims and disputes which by the terms of the Arbitration Agreement are expressly excluded from the requirement to arbitrate.
- Prohibition of Class Actions and Non-Individualized Relief.
- YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WING MAY EACH BRING CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS ("CLASS ACTION WAIVER"). YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WING BOTH ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PURSUE OR HAVE A DISPUTE RESOLVED AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS SUBSECTION (C) SHALL NOT APPLY TO REPRESENTATIVE PRIVATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL ACT CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST WING.
- The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Claim or issue any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis.
- Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, the Arbitration Agreement, or the AAA Rules (defined below), disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which: (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action, and (2) there is a final judicial determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable as to any Claims, the class, collective, and/or representative action on such Claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the Class Action Waiver shall be enforced in arbitration on an individual basis as to all other Claims to the fullest extent possible.
- Representative PAGA Waiver. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms or the Arbitration Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by law: (1) you and Wing agree not to bring a representative action on behalf of others under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 ("PAGA"), California Labor Code § 2698 et seq., in any court or in arbitration, and (2) for any claim brought on a private attorney general basis, including under the PAGA, both you and Wing agree that any such dispute shall be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis only (i.e., to resolve whether you have personally been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law), and that such an action may not be used to resolve the claims or rights of other individuals in a single or collective proceeding (i.e., to resolve whether other individuals have been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law) (collectively, "representative PAGA Waiver"). Notwithstanding any other provision of the Terms, the Arbitration Agreement, or the AAA Rules, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of this representative PAGA Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If any provision of this representative PAGA Waiver is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (i) the unenforceable provision shall be severed from these Terms; (ii) severance of the unenforceable provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the Arbitration Agreement or the requirement that any remaining Claims be arbitrated on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (iii) any such representative PAGA or other representative private attorneys general act claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. To the extent that there are any Claims to be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction because a civil court of competent jurisdiction determines that the representative PAGA Waiver is unenforceable with respect to those Claims, the Parties agree that litigation of those Claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual Claims in arbitration.
- Rules Governing the Arbitration.
- Any arbitration conducted pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the "AAA Rules"), as modified by the provisions set forth in these Terms. Copies of the AAA Rules can be obtained at the AAA's website (www.adr.org) or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if requested by you and if proper based on the facts and circumstances of the Claims presented, the arbitrator shall have the discretion to select a different set of AAA Rules, but in no event shall the arbitrator consolidate more than one person's Claims or otherwise preside over any form of representative, collective, or class proceeding.
- As part of the arbitration, both you and Wing will have the opportunity for reasonable discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator may award any individualized remedies that would be available in court. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claims. The arbitrator will provide a reasoned written statement of the arbitrator's decision which shall explain the award given and the findings and conclusions on which the decision is based.
- The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users or Fulfillers but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User or Fulfiller to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof, provided that any award may be challenged in a court of competent jurisdiction.
- Location and Manner of Arbitration. Unless you and Wing agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings between Wing and a User will take place in the county of your billing address, and any arbitration hearings between Wing and a Fulfiller will take place in the county in which the Fulfiller provides Services. If AAA arbitration is unavailable in your county, the arbitration hearings will take place in the nearest available location for a AAA arbitration. If your Claim is for $10,000 or less, Wing agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as determined by the AAA Rules. If your Claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules.
- Exceptions to Arbitration.
- The Arbitration Agreement shall not require arbitration of the following types of claims: (1) small claims actions brought on an individual basis that are within the scope of such small claims court's jurisdiction; (2) a representative action brought on behalf of others under the PAGA or other private attorneys general acts, to the extent the representative PAGA Waiver in Section 9(d) of such action is deemed unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) claims for workers' compensation, state disability insurance, and unemployment insurance benefits; and (4) claims that may not be subject to arbitration as a matter of law.
- Nothing in the Arbitration Agreement prevents you from making a report to or filing a claim or charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, Securities Exchange Commission, National Labor Relations Board, or Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, or similar local, state, or federal agency, and nothing in the Arbitration Agreement shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party's obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration; however, you knowingly and voluntarily waive the right to seek or recover money damages of any type pursuant to any administrative complaint and instead may seek such relief only through arbitration under these Terms. Nothing in these Terms or the Arbitration Agreement prevents your participation in an investigation by a government agency of any report, claim, or charge otherwise covered by the Arbitration Agreement.
- Severability. In addition to the severability provisions in subsection (d) above, in the event that any portion of the Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
- Fulfiller Claims in Pending Settlement. If you are a member of a putative class in a lawsuit against Wing involving Fulfiller Claims and a motion for preliminary approval of a settlement has been filed with the court in that lawsuit prior to the Effective Date (a "Pending Settlement Action"), then the Arbitration Agreement shall not apply to your Fulfiller Claims in that particular class action. Instead, your Fulfiller Claims in that Pending Settlement Action shall continue to be governed by the arbitration provisions contained in the applicable agreement that you accepted prior to the Effective Date.
- Opting Out of Arbitration for Fulfiller Claims That Are Not in a Pending Settlement Action.
- As a Fulfiller, you may opt out of the requirement to arbitrate Fulfiller Claims, pursuant to the terms of this subsection. If you do not wish to be subject to the Arbitration Agreement with respect to Fulfiller Claims, you may opt out of arbitration with respect to such Fulfiller Claims, pursuant to the terms of this subsection.
- Cases have been filed against Wing and may be filed in the future involving Fulfiller Claims. You should assume that there may be in the future lawsuits against Wing alleging class, collective, and/or representative Fulfiller Claims in which the plaintiffs seek to act on your behalf, and which, if successful, could result in some monetary recovery to you. But if you do agree to arbitration of Fulfiller Claims with Wing under the Arbitration Agreement, you are agreeing in advance that you will bring all such claims, and seek all monetary and other relief, against Wing in an individual arbitration provision, except for the Fulfiller Claims that are part of a Pending Settlement Action. You are also agreeing in advance that you will not participate, or seek to recover monetary or other relief for such claims, in any court action or class, collective, and/or representative action. You have the right to consult with counsel of your choice concerning the Arbitration Agreement, and you will not be subject to retaliation if you exercise your right to assert claims or opt- out of any Fulfiller Claims under the Arbitration Agreement.
- Optional Pre-Arbitration Negotiation Process. Before initiating any arbitration or proceeding, you and Wing may agree to first attempt to negotiate any dispute, claim, or controversy between the parties informally for 30 days, unless this time period is mutually extended by you and Wing. A party who intends to seek negotiation under this subsection must first send to the other a written notice of the dispute ("Notice"). The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (2) set forth the specific relief sought. All offers, promises, conduct, and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the negotiation by any of the parties, their agents, officers, directors, independent contractors, employees, and attorneys are confidential, privileged, and inadmissible for any purpose, including as evidence of liability or for impeachment, in arbitration or any other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the negotiation.
- Wing Promotions and Referral Programs
- Wing has discretion and may make available promotions with different features to any Users or prospective Users. These promotions, unless made to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your agreement or relationship with Wing. Wing reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or benefits obtained through a promotion in the event that Wing determines or believes that the redemption of the promotion or receipt of the credit or benefit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable promotion terms or these Terms.
- From time to time, Wing may offer you with incentives to refer new Users to the Wing community. These incentives may come in the form of Wing Credits, and Wing may set or change the incentive types, amounts, terms, restrictions, and qualification requirements for any incentives in its sole discretion.
- Intellectual Property

- Export Regulations; Government End Users.
You represent and warrant that you and your financial institution(s) are not subject to sanctions or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties or owned or controlled by such a party, including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the US Government (e.g., the US Department of Treasury's Specially Designated Nationals list and Foreign Sanctions Evaders list and the US Department of Commerce's Entity List), the European Union or its member states, or other applicable government authority. You will not directly or indirectly export, re-export, transmit, or cause to be exported, re-exported, or transmitted, any commodities, software, or technology (“Items”) to any country, individual, corporation, organization, or entity to which such export, re-export, or transmission is restricted or prohibited, including any country, individual, corporation, organization, or entity under sanctions or embargoes administered by the United Nations, US Departments of State, Treasury, or Commerce, the European Union, or any other applicable government authority. If you are a U.S. Government end user, we are licensing the Software to you as a "Commercial Item" as that term is defined in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (see 48 C.F.R. § 2.101), and the rights we grant you to the Services are the same as the rights we grant to all others under these Terms.
- Liability of Assistant Issues, and Loss Arising from the same.
You affirm that you are aware that all work, duties, obligations, requests, tasks, requirements, action items, etc. (collectively "Assistant Work") seemingly performed by the product marketed titles including "Wing Assistant", "Wing Business Assistant", "Wing for Business" on your behalf are completed by a company that Wing AI Technologies, Inc. has contracted to complete Assistant Work (a "Contracted Company"), however, when communicating with assistants that are employed by the Contracted Company via a Wing AI Technologies, Inc. owned & operated application, you are then, and only then using services & technologies built and rendered by Wing AI Technologies, Inc, ONLY to communicate to these assistants that are employed by the Contracted Company. Therefore, in any instances where assistant issues such as, but not limited to, assistant negligence, assistant failure, assistant error, assistant response times, failure of assistant to perform duties or meet obligations, failure of assistant to respond at all, or any loss of any kind arising from any of these (collectively "Assistant Issues") are the source of issue, Wing AI Technologies, Inc. cannot be held responsible, as Wing AI Technologies, Inc. only provides a communication platform between assistants and business customers, upon which, assistants are controlled, trained, and employed by a Contracted Company. You agree to waive any and all liability associated with Assistant Issues. You acknowledge that using the Services does not guarantee any outcome, and that work given may not be completed.
- Liability of Issues
While Wing is a service that does our best to guarantee security of messages, leveraging partnerships with top security services, you agree that Wing cannot be held liable or responsible for any damages associated with security breaches, breaches of data, or any other kind of technology breach as such. In addition, you agree that in using Wing, you are ultimately responsible for the liability of the tasks that are given, and therefore, liability or loss arising from any issue that is not a technology breach of any kind, or an Assistant Issue, you also acknowledge and agree cannot be attributed to Wing, and Wing cannot be held liable for any liability or loss faced by you, your business, or any affiliate organization or person, incorporated or unincorporated.
- Material Breaches
You agree that a material breach of these Terms of Service may only arise when you have not paid any outstanding invoices, either as a result of one or more unpaid invoices - as defined by an invoice that was never attempted to be paid, or a failed payment for one or more invoices. Wing AI Technologies, Inc.'s obligations only are to provide a communication platform through which you may communicate with assistants that have been assigned to your account by the Contracted Company responsible for Wing AI Technologies, Inc's human assistance services. Both parties agree that Assistant Issues, service outages, and actions taken by the Contracted Company cannot be used as a basis for a material breach of these Terms of Service.
- Refunds, Continued
Wing is under no obligation to provide refunds for any reason. Wing, in good faith, may, on a case-by-case basis, provide refunds for unused time, as defined by the days pre-paid for in the billing period, on a prorated basis, for the days after the date of explicit written cancellation that are remaining in the billing period. It is important to understand that Wing provides a dedicated assistant service, therefore, while you are in the billing period before an event of cancellation, your account has been assigned dedicated resources.
- Communication with Assistants Outside Normal Course of Business
Clients agree that at any point during the relationship with Wing, and for a period of up to three (3) calendar years after, they may not approach any Assistants for any reason outside the normal course of day to day operations. Wing invests a lot of time, money, and effort in building relationships with our Contracted Companies, providing quality training material and training sessions to Assistants, maintaining internal culture, and investing in their futures. You agree that by attempting to contact Assistants outside the normal course of day to day operations for any reason will cause Wing irreparable harm, and result in Wing resorting to injunctive measures to prevent this action, and to seek financial compensation for any damages incurred to Wing associated with your action.
- Your Information is any information you provide, publish, or post to or through the Services or related services (including any profile information you provide) or send to other Users or Fulfillers (including via in-application feedback, any email feature, or through any Wing-related Facebook, Twitter, or other social media posting) (your "Information"). You consent to us using your Information to create a User account that will allow you to use the Services and participate in the Services.
- These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to choice of law principles. This choice of law provision is only intended to specify the use of California law to interpret these Terms and is not intended to create any other substantive right to non-Californians to assert claims under California law whether by statute, common law, or otherwise.
- If any provision of these Terms is or becomes invalid or non-binding, the parties shall remain bound by all other provisions hereof. In that event, the parties shall replace the invalid or non-binding provision with provisions that are valid and binding and that have, to the greatest extent possible, a similar effect as the invalid or non-binding provision, given the contents and purpose of these Terms.
- These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you; any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. However, you agree that these Terms and all incorporated policies or agreements may be assigned by Wing, in our sole discretion, by providing notice to you.
- A party's failure to act with respect to a breach by the other party does not constitute a waiver of the party's right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
- These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Wing with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all previous understandings and agreements between the parties, whether oral or written.
