Terms of Service

1. Introduction 

This is important, so please read carefully! Thank you.

This is a binding legal agreement between the natural person or legal person (“Customer” or “you”) agreeing to these Terms of Service (“Terms”) and Prezi Inc. (“Prezi,” “us,” or “we”). By accepting these Terms, signing an Order, or using the services subject to these Terms of Service (collectively the “Service(s)” or “Prezi Service(s)”), you represent that you have civil and legal capacity, that you are of legal age and have the authority to bind the Customer to the Order, these Terms and the following additional terms and conditions and policies, which are hereby incorporated by reference (collectively, the “Agreement”):

Your use of and access to the Prezi Service, and the licenses granted herein are expressly conditioned upon your compliance with and acceptance of this Agreement.

If you register on behalf of a legal person, you represent to Prezi that you have the authority to bind that legal person and that your acceptance of this Agreement will be treated as acceptance by that legal person. The Prezi Services are not available to persons who are not legally eligible to be bound by this Agreement.

Changes and Modifications. Prezi may change or amend these Terms. If we make material changes, we will notify you, either through the user interface, in an email notification, or through other reasonable means. Your use of the Service after the date such change(s) become effective will constitute consent to the changed terms. If you do not agree to the changes, you must immediately stop using the Service. Otherwise, the new terms will apply to you.

As long as you comply with this Agreement, Prezi grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Service as it is intended to be used and in accordance with this Agreement and applicable law. We grant you no other rights, implied or otherwise.

Links to Other Sites. The Service may contain links to or allow you to interact with and make use of other independent third-party websites, products or services (“Third-Party Sites, Products and Services”). Access to Third-Party Sites, Products, and Services are provided solely as a convenience to our Visitors and Customers. Such Third-Party Sites, Products, and Services are not under Prezi’s control and Prezi does not necessarily endorse the content, advertising, products, services or other materials on or available from such Third-Party Sites, Products and Services. Your use of any Third-Party Sites, Products and Services may be subject to the third-party provider’s terms and conditions and privacy policy and may involve the disclosure or transfer of information from or about you to the third-party provider. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your use of and interaction with any Third-Party Sites, Products and Services. You acknowledge and agree that Prezi is not responsible for the availability of any Third-Party Sites, Products and Services and that Prezi shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with your use of or interaction with any Third-Party Sites, Products and Services.

You agree that your failure to adhere to any of the above conditions, or any other provision of these Terms of Service, shall constitute a breach of these Terms of Service on your part.

System requirements. Use of the Prezi Services may require one or more compatible devices, Internet access (fees may apply), and certain software (fees may apply), and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time. Because use of the Services involves hardware, software, and Internet access, your ability to access and use the Services may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is recommended. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are your responsibility.

4. Age Restrictions on Use of the Service 

You may not use the Service if you are under 13 years of age. You represent that you are 13 or older, and that you will not permit a minor under the age of 13 to use the Service, your Prezi account, or otherwise interact with the Service. Prezi will never knowingly solicit or accept personally identifiable information or other content from a user or visitor who Prezi knows is under 13 years of age. If Prezi discovers that a user under 13 years of age has created an account, or that a user or visitor under 13 years of age has posted personally identifiable information or other content to the Service, Prezi will terminate the account and remove the information or other content.

Users between 13 and 18 (each a “Teen”) may not access or use the Service unless (i) both the Teen and their parent or legal guardian have first agreed to these Terms of Service; and (ii) the Teen uses an account established by their parent or legal guardian, under such parent or guardian’s supervision, and with such parent or guardian’s permission.  If you permit a Teen to use the Service, you hereby agree to these Terms of Service on behalf of both yourself and the Teen. You further agree that you are solely responsible for any and all use of the Service by your Teen regardless of whether such use was authorized by you.

5. Account Types 

Prezi offers a variety of user accounts. You can find out about all the types of accounts, as well as their features and pricing, here. Services, features, account types and pricing are subject to change. 

6. Beta Services

Prezi may, from time to time, offer access to services that are classified as 'Beta version'. Access to and use of Beta versions may be subject to additional terms of service, policies and other agreements. Prezi makes no warranties and representations that a Beta version will ever be made generally available and reserves the right to discontinue or modify a Beta version at any time without notice. Beta versions are provided AS-IS, may contain bugs, errors or other defects, and your use of a Beta version is at your sole risk.

7. User Content & Options 

7.1 GENERAL

Prezi offers a number of ways to share, or not share, your User Content, including presentations, videos, with others.

We will not view, access or process any of your Private User Content, except:

  1. as required to provide the Services or as otherwise necessary for purposes of Prezi’s legitimate interests (including evaluating and responding to security incidents and legal requests), or

  2. as authorized or instructed by you or your users in this Agreement or in any other agreement between the parties, or

  3. as required to comply with our policies, applicable law, or governmental request, or

  4. as required to conduct research and development for the further development of our Services in order to provide the Services to you and others (including account, service usage, and survey information).

Prezi Public (free) Accounts. If you have a Prezi Public (free) account, all of the User Content you create, including all of the information within your presentations, your videos, your other content, and your username will be available to anyone who has access to the internet (“Public User Content”). Public account holders with specific licenses may be able to create Private User Content, as defined below, including the option to create unlisted/private videos. Public User Content, including presentations or videos, can be viewed by other Prezi users, will appear in the searchable Prezi database, in publicly available search engines and will be available for others to access and view online. Accordingly, you hereby do and shall grant to each Prezi user and to the public, a worldwide, non-exclusive license to access, view, publicly perform, publicly display and communicate to the public your Public User Content. This license ends one year after you delete the Public User Content, including the presentation or video, or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the Public User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.

Paid Prezi Accounts. If you are making use of the Service to display or edit User Content (including presentations, videos, and other content) that you do not wish to be accessible or viewable by other Prezi users or the public (“Private User Content”) – or if you wish to display or edit your User Content – you are required to have a paid Prezi account. If you have an educational or paid Prezi account, your user name may be shared by Prezi with others who we think might be interested in you, but you can choose to designate your content Public User Content or Private User Content. Presentations designated as Private User Content will not be available to the public. Rather, they will be available to you, and to those Prezi users with whom you have chosen to share the User Content. You may invite one or more people (a “Viewer”) to view your presentation or video by sending them a “share” or “invite” link. You can learn more about sharing here. You hereby do and shall grant to each Invited Viewer a worldwide, non-exclusive license to access, view, publicly perform, publicly display and communicate to the public your Private User Content. This license ends one year after you delete the Private User Content, including the presentation or video, or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the Private User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.

Sharing with edit rights. Regardless of whether your User Content has been designated as Public User Content or Private User Content, you may choose to share a presentation, video or other User Content in a manner that allows the person you’ve shared such User Content with (a “Co-editor”) to reuse or edit that User Content, or portions thereof as permitted by the Prezi Services. You can learn more about sharing with edit rights here. You hereby do and shall grant to each Co-editor a worldwide, non-exclusive license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the content of which they are Co-editors. This license ends one year after you delete the content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the User Content has been shared with the Co-editors and they have not deleted it.

Allowing Re-use. If your content is designated as Public User Content, you may choose to “allow re-use” of that content (in the case of videos that are designated Public User Content, you are required to allow re-use). When you allow re-use of your Public User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to each user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit your User Content, and portions thereof as permitted by the Prezi Services. This license ends when you delete the Public User Content, including presentation or video, or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the Public User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it. The “allow reuse” option is enabled by default for Prezi Public accounts when creating new presentations and videos; the option can be disabled for presentations, but not for videos.

Prezi Videos. You may create, stream, record and share videos using the Prezi Services. These videos may feature, among other things, the image of you, Prezi presentations, and other User Content. Live video feeds (including via Facebook Live and Zoom) are supported as well. As with all online activities, please exercise discretion in deciding what to post. 

Integration with Other Services. Prezi supports sharing with other Third-party Services. You hereby grant to Prezi all rights necessary to connect your social media and other third-party accounts, and to effectuate your User Content sharing (including without limitation video streaming) with these platforms. Please be aware that third-party services are governed by their own terms and policies; it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with them before posting.  

Prezi for Teams Accounts. If your account is part of a Prezi for Teams account, your account is subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement between Prezi and the owner of the Prezi for Teams account, i.e. the entity (the “Team Administrator”) that is financially responsible for any fees associated with the Prezi for Teams accounts belonging to that entity and which assigned your Prezi for Teams account to you. Those terms may be in addition to or different from the terms and conditions in this Agreement. Please note that the Team Administrator controls your Prezi for Teams account and may, among other things:

  • manage your account, including changing the privacy settings;

  • suspend or cancel your account;

  • grant, restrict or block access to your account;

  • view your account’s usage, including how and when your account is used;

  • view your account’s profile data;

  • read, copy, modify, export, share, store or delete Content (both Public User Content and Private User Content) in your account;

  • make Public User Content private;

  • make Private User Content public.

Please ask your Team Administrator about the specific conditions applicable to your Prezi for Teams account. You hereby do and shall grant to the Team Administrator a worldwide, non-exclusive license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the Public User Content or Private User Content of your Prezi for Teams account. This license ends one year after you delete the presentation or your Prezi for Teams account is closed (either by you, the Team Administrator or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.

Business Accounts. If you sign up for a Prezi Public Account or a Paid Prezi Account with an e-mail address using a domain owned by an organization (“Organization”) then, depending on your country of habitual residence and the agreement entered into between us and the Organization, your account (a “Business Account”) is subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement between Prezi and the Organization. Those terms may be in addition to or different from the terms and conditions in this Agreement. Please note that the Organization controls your Business Account and may have the same rights with regard to your Business Account that a Team Administrator has with regard to a Prezi for Teams account.

If you convert your account to a Business Account, the Organization may prevent you from subsequently converting your account to another account type. Please ask your Organization about the specific conditions applicable to your Business Account. You hereby do and shall grant to the Organization a worldwide, non-exclusive license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the Public User Content or Private User Content of your account. This license ends one year after you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.

The Organization may request Prezi to block your account until you either convert your account to a Business Account or you associate a personal e-mail address with your account.

Your Accounts. You are solely responsible for (i) all use of the Services by you and your users, (ii) obtaining consent from your users to the collection, use, processing and transfer of User Content, and (iii) providing notices or obtaining consent as legally required in connection with the Prezi Services. We do not send emails asking for your usernames or passwords, and to keep your accounts secure, you should keep all usernames and passwords confidential. We may suspend the Prezi Services or terminate the Agreement if you, your users, or attendees are using the Services in a manner that is likely to cause harm to us or to third parties. You agree to notify us immediately in the event you become aware of a security breach. 

Trials and Free Services. Your right to access and use the Prezi Services is not guaranteed for any period of time and we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to limit or terminate the use of any Prezi Service at any time. If you are using the Services on a trial or promotional basis (“Trial Period”), your Trial Period and access to the Services will terminate (i) at the end of the Trial Period stated in your Order, or (ii) if no date is specified, 14 days after your initial access to the Prezi Services, or (iii) upon your conversion to a subscription. We may modify or discontinue any trials or promotions at any time without notice.

7.2 LICENSES YOU GRANT TO PREZI FOR USE OF PUBLIC USER CONTENT AND PRIVATE USER CONTENT

In order to provide the Service to you in accordance with the Agreement, we need certain licenses from you in order for us to, e.g., host, store and display the User Content. For example, we need the right to (i) publicly display/perform the User Content to allow us to display it on the computer monitor of any party who is not the copyright holder, or  (ii) reproduce the User Content so that it can be saved to our servers, or (iii) prepare derivative works based upon the User Content and modify the User Content, for instance, when transcoding an uploaded image into a format that will work most efficiently with the Service.

With respect to Private User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to Prezi (and its successors, assignees, and third-party service providers) a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the content for the purpose of providing you, and those with whom you have shared your Private User Content, including but not limited to presentations, videos, with the Service. This license ends one year after you delete your Private User Content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except (i) to the extent that your Private User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it, (ii) that if you are a habitual resident of a Member State of the European Economic Area, we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Private User Content for three years and (iii) that if you are not a habitual resident of a Member State of the European Economic Area, we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Private User Content indefinitely.

With respect to Public User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to Prezi (and its successors, assignees, and third-party service providers) a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate to the public, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the Public User Content (1) for the purpose of providing you, and those with whom you have shared Public User Content, including but not limited to your presentations, videos (including the public), with the Service; and (2) in connection with promotion and marketing of Prezi products and services, including without limitation allowing third parties to search or index the content, in connection with email promotions, product demonstrations, and the like. This license ends one year after you delete your Public User Content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except (i) to the extent that your Public User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it and (ii) that we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Public User Content indefinitely.

Regardless of whether you designate content public or private, Prezi makes no claim of ownership to your User Content and obtains no rights to your content other than as provided for herein.

7.3 EXPIRATION AND REVOCABILITY OF LICENSES

Prezi makes it easy for users with qualified accounts to change a presentation’s public/private, and “allow reuse” status at any time.

However, uses made of your presentation, video or other User Content, whether by Prezi or its users, are subject to the licenses that were in place at the time such use was originally made by the person or entity who originally made the use. For example, licensed uses of Public User Content, or content that allows reuse, may continue to be made after such content is designated Private User Content, by those users who previously used the content under the prior license.

7.4 THIRD-PARTY AND LINKED/EMBEDDED CONTENT

Prezi gives you the option, when creating or editing a presentation, to search for and insert third-party content, including but not limited to images and content from other web-based platforms (such as Infogram), into your User Content (presentations, videos, etc.). Such third-party content is subject to the license terms and contractual provisions that accompany it, and you are solely responsible for compliance with all such terms and provisions. For example, if you use an image that is licensed pursuant to a Creative Commons license that prohibits commercial use, you may not use the image for commercial purposes. Similarly, if you use Infogram charts, custom images, YouTube videos, or other third-party content in your User Content, including presentations, videos, your use must be consistent with the terms of use provided by those third parties, and the licenses applicable to that content. Some license terms and contractual provisions may limit the manner in which you are permitted to use your User Content, such as share it with others, or allow re-use of presentation, video. 

7.5 PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

If your Prezi account includes design services, training services or other professional services, (collectively, “Professional Services”), this section applies to your account.

Prezi will perform the Professional Services in a competent and professional manner.

You will provide all assistance and cooperation to Prezi reasonably necessary to permit Prezi to perform the Professional Services. You acknowledge that failure to provide such assistance and cooperation may impair Prezi’s ability to provide the Professional Services and may result in additional charges being invoiced to you as a result of additional time or expenses incurred by Prezi as a result. You will be responsible for making, at your sole expense, any changes or additions to your hardware and software systems that may be required to support Prezi’s performance of the Professional Services or the installation, implementation and/or use of any deliverables specified (each, a “Deliverable” and, collectively, the “Deliverables”). You will assign a project manager to (i) assist and coordinate with Prezi in connection with its performance of the Professional Services, (ii) serve as a principal point of contact with Prezi and (iii) perform the review, analysis, and acceptance of the Deliverables.

Upon payment in full of the fees for your Prezi account which includes Professional Services, or upon payment in full of Prezi’s fees for the Professional Services if such fees are separate from the charges for your Prezi account, you will have a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive right and license to use the resulting Deliverables solely in connection with your Prezi account on a trial basis for sixty (60) days from the date your Prezi account is activated (the “Trial Period”). You may terminate the Trial Period prior to its scheduled end by issuing a written termination notice to Prezi. Upon Prezi’s receipt of the termination notice, the Trial Period will terminate, your license to use the Deliverables will terminate, you may not make any further use of the Deliverables and you will be entitled to a credit for the portion of the fees which you paid which are applicable to the Professional Services which directly relate to the applicable Deliverables. If you do not issue Prezi a written termination notice before the scheduled end of the Trial Period, you will have a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive right and license to use the resulting Deliverables solely in connection with your Prezi account until your Prezi account expires or is terminated.

Prezi reserves all rights to the Deliverables that are not expressly granted in these Terms of Service. Nothing in these Terms of Service will be construed as granting you any property rights in or to the Deliverables or in or to any invention or any patent, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights that have been issued, or that may issue, based on the Deliverables. The Deliverables are licensed hereby, not sold.

8. Payment Terms 

8.1 PAYMENT FOR SUBSCRIPTION

You agree to pay the then-current fee for your account type. Some Prezi accounts are offered with a free trial period. Such free trials are limited to one-per-user. Users must not fraudulently obtain (or attempt to obtain) additional trial periods beyond the single free trial term.

If your account began with a free trial, the current fee for the account type you have selected will automatically and immediately be charged to your payment instrument or account on the date your free trial expires. If your account did not begin with a free trial, the current fee for the account type you have selected will automatically and immediately be charged to your payment instrument or account on the date you signed up and then every 30 or 365 days after (depending on the billing cycle which applies to your account). Fees charged for one account type may not be credited towards other account types. All currency references are in U.S. dollars.

8.2 FRAUD PROTECTIONS

To protect against potential fraud, Prezi may take steps to verify the validity of the credit card information you provide to us. The verification process may include debiting an amount between $0.01 and $0.99 from your credit card account and then immediately crediting the same amount back to your credit card, as well as asking you to verify the amount debited in order to confirm that you are in possession of your credit card. Prezi will only use this process to screen for fraud and will not otherwise debit your credit card account except as part of a transaction conducted through your account for the Service. By providing Prezi with your credit card information, you authorize Prezi to debit and credit your credit card account for an amount less than one dollar for such verification purposes. Prezi may also engage third parties to provide fraud detection services.

8.3 CANCELLATION OF SUBSCRIPTION

Payment for subscriptions is non-refundable. If you cancel your recurring payment option, your account will remain active until its next renewal date. If you delete your account before the end of the term for which you paid, your cancellation will take effect immediately. In either case (cancellation or deletion), you will not be given any refund.

8.4 TERMINATION

If your payment method is invalid or rejected for any reason and a free Prezi Public version of your paid Prezi account type is available, your paid Prezi account will revert to the free Prezi Public account version and will be subject to the limitations of a free Prezi Public account, provided, however, that Prezi reserves the right to cancel your account entirely in such case. You will have the option of deleting any User Content from your account prior to its reversion to a Prezi Public account. In the event your paid Prezi account reverts to a free Prezi Public account, any content you previously created with a paid Prezi account and designated as Private User Content will remain Private User Content, but you will not be able to edit such content. New content you create with such an account will become Public User Content, which means any new content you create from that point forward is going to be public.

If your paid Prezi account began with a free trial and you do not purchase a subscription to the same or an upgraded version of those services before the end of the trial period, your paid Prezi account will automatically terminate at the end of the trial period. If your paid Prezi account is terminated for any reason or expires, any content you entered into the Service, and any customizations made to the Service by or for you, which are associated with your paid Prezi account will become unavailable.

Prezi further reserves the right to cancel, or revert to Prezi Public account status, the account of any user who attempts to fraudulently obtain Prezi educational pricing.

9. Abuses, Warranties 

If you believe that Prezi, or any user of the Service, has violated your rights, including privacy, copyright, trademark or other rights, please submit an abuse report using our form.

10. Prezi’s Intellectual Property 

All intellectual property, e.g. text, fonts, graphics, pictures, icons, user interfaces, visual interfaces, photographs, trademarks, logos, design marks, sounds, music and its accompanying words, artwork, content, computer code, programs, software (collectively, “Prezi Content”), including but not limited to the design, structure, selection, coordination, expression, “look and feel,” and arrangement of such Prezi Content, contained on the Service is owned, disposed, controlled, or licensed by or to Prezi, and is protected by trade dress, industrial design, copyright, patent, and trademark laws, and various other intellectual property rights.

11. Termination; Breach of this Agreement 

You agree that Prezi may, at its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your account, your access to the Service, and/or block your future access to the Service. By way of example, but not by way of limitation, we may terminate your account if we determine that you have violated this Agreement or other agreements or guidelines that may be associated with your use of the Service. Please note that it is Prezi’s policy to terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly violate the intellectual property rights of third parties. 

If Prezi takes any legal action against you as a result of your breach of this Agreement, Prezi will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to Prezi.

12. Disclaimer of Warranties 

While Prezi attempts to make User Content available through the Service, Prezi does not guarantee access to, or hosting of, your User Content.

15. Please Review User Content for Appropriateness Before Use 

Prezi has not reviewed the User Content featured on the Service to determine whether they are suitable or appropriate for your intended audience. Before using any of the User Content (including presentations and videos) featured on the Service, please PREVIEW THEM CAREFULLY to ensure that the materials are appropriate for your audience, and for any other uses you intend to make. Prezi is not responsible for any User Content on the Service. If you find any content on the Service that you believe is objectionable, or that violates these Terms of Service or Prezi’s conduct guidelines, please report us an abuse by filling up the form or feel free to notify us at abuse@prezi.com.

16. Indemnification 

You agree to indemnify and hold Prezi and/or the Prezi Affiliates harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs (including reasonable attorney’s fees) incurred by Prezi and/or the Prezi Affiliates in connection with any claim arising out of your breach of the Agreement. Prezi reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you.

17. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration 

  • Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you aren't a member of a certified class; and

  • Claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

References to "Prezi", "you", "we", and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under this or prior agreements between us. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court if its claims are within that court’s jurisdiction and are pending only in that court. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Prezi are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. 

(2) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Prezi should be addressed to: Prezi Inc, 450 Bryant Street San Francisco, CA 94107 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Prezi and you don't reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Prezi may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Prezi or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Prezi is entitled.   

(3) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 800.778.7879. 

The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision. Unless Prezi and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in San Francisco, California. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. 

(4) 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 claim. YOU AND PREZI AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. Further, unless both you and Prezi agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. 

(5) Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Prezi makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) during the term of these Terms of Service, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you're agreeing that you'll arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with this provision. 

(6) HOW TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION: You may opt-out of this arbitration provision by sending a letter to the Notice Address referenced above, and providing each of the following pieces of information: (a) your full name; (b) your address; (c) your phone number; (d) the URL where you found this agreement; and (e) a clear statement that you wish to opt-out of this arbitration provision. This opt-out notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept these Terms of Service.

(7) If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the state and federal courts in San Francisco, California, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.

18. General Terms 

Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the whole legal agreement between you and Prezi. It governs your use of the Service and completely replaces any prior agreements between you and Prezi with respect to the Service. You may also be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase other products or services from Prezi.

Governing Law. The laws of the State of California, excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Prezi Services.

Severability of Terms; Non-waiver of Terms. If any portion of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be stricken and the remainder of the Agreement enforced as written. If Prezi does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy including those contained in the Agreement or arising under applicable law, this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of our rights. 

Miscellaneous. Both parties are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement creates a partnership, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. No person or entity not a party to the Agreement will be a third party beneficiary. Our authorized distributors do not have the right to modify these Terms of Service or to make commitments binding on us. 

19. Additional Terms

High-Risk Use. Except as otherwise set forth in a Prezi Service Description, you understand that the Prezi Services are not designed or intended for use during high-risk activities.

Recording. Certain Services may provide functionality that allows you to record audio and data shared during presentations, webinars or sessions. You are solely responsible for complying with all applicable laws in the relevant jurisdictions while using any recording functionality.

Assignment. You may not assign your rights or delegate your duties under these Terms of Service either in whole or in part without Prezi’s prior written consent. Any attempted assignment by you without Prezi’s consent will be void. Prezi may assign these Terms of Service or delegate its duties hereunder without restriction and without the requirement of prior notice to you.

Summary:

Most disputes can be resolved informally. If you have a concern, please contact us. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your concern to your satisfaction (or if we haven’t been able to resolve a dispute that Prezi has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small-claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. It uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision, and in making it you should not rely solely on the information in this agreement. You may opt-out of this arbitration provision by following the instructions below.  

Arbitration Agreement:

(1) Prezi and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted and expressly includes claims brought under any statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory. It includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;

  • Claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
