Last updated July 21, 2020:
Our Services are continually evolving and additional terms may apply to your use of particular Services (“Additional Terms”), along with these Terms. We will post Additional Terms (or a link to Additional Terms) on any Services to which they apply and such Additional Terms are incorporated by reference into these Terms. To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless they expressly state otherwise. Print or save these Terms for your reference.
We may need to make changes to these Terms and any Additional Terms from time to time for many reasons. If we make a material change to these Terms or any Additional Terms, we will notify you by posting a notice on our website. If you have registered to use the Services, then we will also send an email registered to your account about the changes to these Terms prior to the material change taking effect. Any material change to these Terms will be effective automatically 30 days after the revised Terms are first posted or, for users who register or otherwise provide opt-in consent during this 30-day period, at the time of registration or consent, as applicable.
We reserve the right to deny access to the Services, without notice, to anyone who violates these Terms or violated any law, rule, or regulation, engaged in inappropriate conduct, or who, in our judgment, interferes with the ability of others to enjoy this service or violates the rights of others. We may change, restrict access to, suspend, or discontinue the Services and Content (as defined below), or any portion of the Services or Content, to any individual user or all users, for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability, at any time. Upon suspension or termination of your access to the Services, or upon notice from First Look, all rights granted to you under these Terms or any Additional Terms will cease immediately, and you agree that you will immediately discontinue use of the Services. The provisions of these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, which by their nature should survive your suspension or termination, including sections on Services Use, Accounts, Our Content (except for the limited license), Submissions, Notice of Copyright Infringement, Customer Support, Services Features, Disclaimers, Limitations of Liability, Indemnification, Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes and Choice of Law, Waiver of Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief, Miscellaneous, California Consumer Rights and Notices, and Terms Applicable for Apple iOS, will survive.

You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted in this Section. Our receipt of your Submissions is not an admission of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair our right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Submissions. Subject to the rights and license you grant in these Terms, you retain whatever legally cognizable right, title, and interest that you have in your Submissions and you remain ultimately responsible for it.
While we have these restrictions, please be aware that some Submissions may be objectionable, inaccurate, or inappropriate. First Look does not endorse any Submissions, and Submissions that are posted on our site do not reflect First Look’s policies or opinions. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor Submissions and to restrict or remove Submissions that we determine, in our sole discretion, are inappropriate or for any other business reasons, as permitted by law. First Look does not assume any responsibility or liability for any Submissions, and you agree to waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against First Look with respect to such Submissions.
First Look does not accept any unsolicited materials or submissions, such as scripts, story lines, articles, or similar materials. First Look’s policy is to delete any such submission without reading it. Should you send any unsolicited materials or ideas, you do so with the understanding that no additional consideration of any sort will be provided to you, and you are waiving any claim against First Look and its affiliates regarding the use of such materials and ideas, even if material or an idea is used that is substantially similar to the material or idea you sent.
NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
First Look respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects those who use the Services to do the same.

(This address is to be used only to notify us of claimed copyright infringement on the Services. Please direct any other comments or inquiries to the Customer Support address below.)
Please note that we may access and disclose your personally identifiable information in order to address any infringement claim.
SUBSCRIPTIONS AND PRODUCTS
Certain Services require payment on a recurring, subscription basis before you can access them (“Subscriptions”). For example, you may need to subscribe in order to access certain video content on our Services. Subscriptions can be purchased by providing a credit card, debit card, bank account or other payment method accepted by First Look (“Payment Method”) and paying the Subscription fee each month.
By purchasing a Subscription, you authorize us to automatically charge your credit or debit card, or electronically debit the bank account, that you designated as your Payment Method, on a recurring basis starting on the date of your purchase and each month thereafter, for the amount of your Subscription fee (plus any applicable taxes) as shown during checkout (and, if necessary, to credit your Payment Method to correct any erroneous debits). We will email you a copy of your authorization to the email address we have on file for you.
Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each Subscription period, unless you cancel your Subscription by logging into your subscription page and cancelling the Subscription before the last day of the current Subscription period. SUBSCRIPTIONS CANNOT BE TERMINATED BEFORE THE END OF THE PERIOD FOR WHICH YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, AND FIRST LOOK WILL NOT REFUND ANY FEES THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR THAT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. Following any cancellation, we will withdraw your authorization to charge your Payment Method, however, you will continue to have access to the Services through the end of your current billing period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period.
You are responsible for keeping your Payment Method up to date. You agree to notify us of any changes in your Payment Method information (including any replacement Payment Method) as soon as possible by logging into your registered account and viewing your account details. If your bank or credit card company notifies us that your Payment Method information has changed, you authorize us to automatically update your Payment Method to reflect such change and continue charging the updated Payment Method.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your Payment Method and any uncollected amounts. If your payment is not successfully settled, due to insufficient funds, expiration of your Payment Method, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the Services until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. We also reserve the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your Subscriptions, including collection costs, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
First Look may change the price for the Subscriptions, from time to time, by posting the new price on its Services. Price changes for Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling your Subscription prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.
We may offer free trials for certain Subscriptions, subject to Additional Terms provided to you when you sign up. You can view the details of your free trial when you log into your account. First Look reserves the right to determine your eligibility for a free trial in order to prevent free trial abuse, which may vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to, the Services or Subscriptions you select and how recently you redeemed a free trial. We will charge the fee for the applicable Subscription period to your Payment Method at the end of the free trial period and your membership will automatically renew unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period.
If we offer you a promotion, such as a promotional price or bundled Subscriptions, the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed during your sign-up or in other materials, such as Additional Terms, provided to you. We will charge your Payment Method for your Subscriptions at the then-current, non-promotional price after your promotion ends unless you cancel prior to the end of your promotional period or as otherwise disclosed.
We do our best to describe every product or service offered on our Services as accurately as possible. However, we do not warrant that product specifications, pricing, or other content on the Services is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of any errors relating to the pricing or specifications, First Look shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders in its sole discretion. If we charged your Payment Method prior to our cancellation, we will issue a credit to your Payment Method in the amount of the charge. If a product or service you purchased from First Look is not available or otherwise not as described, your sole remedy is to cancel the purchase and receive a credit for the purchase price. Our licensors and content providers are not liable to you for unavailability of content or for your dissatisfaction with the Services.
For any purchases made through third-party platform providers, such as Apple, Amazon, Roku, or Google, please contact their customer support. Their terms, conditions and policies, and not ours, apply and we do not handle returns or refund requests for purchases through those third-party platform providers.
If you have any questions, please send an email to us here. You acknowledge that the provision of support is at First Look’s sole discretion and that we have no obligation to provide you with customer support of any kind. All legal notices to us must be mailed to: First Look Productions, Inc., 114 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10011. When you communicate with us electronically, you consent to receive communications from us electronically. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Third Parties. Throughout our Services, we provide links to websites and other services maintained by third parties. Our linking to such third-party services does not imply that we endorse such services, or the information, products or services offered on or through those services. The Services may also contain or may interact with third-party content that is not owned, controlled or operated by First Look (collectively, “Third-Party Services”). We may also host our content on Third-Party Services. First Look neither endorses nor controls such Third-Party Services, and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible or liable for the information, content, products, or services on or available from such Third-Party Services, or for the results to be obtained from using them. If you choose to access any such Third-Party Services, you do so at your own risk.
Any interactions, transactions, and other dealings that you have with any third parties found on or through the Services are solely between you and the third party. You hereby agree to indemnify First Look against all claims, injury, damages, and costs, including attorneys’ fees that arise out of your use of any Third-Party Service.
As Is. The Services are provided “as is,” and “as available,” with all faults, and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We do not warrant that the Services or any of the functions therein will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that any part of the Services, or the servers that make the Services available, are free of viruses or other harmful components. Any Content downloaded from or otherwise accessed through the Services is accessed at your own risk; you alone will be responsible for any damage to your person or property, including your computer system and any other Device you use to access the Services, which results from accessing such content. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE DISCLAIMERS HEREIN DO NOT EXCLUDE ANY PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS, STATUTORY CONSUMER RIGHTS, OR DAMAGES ASSOCIATED WITH PERSONAL INJURY OR RESULTING FROM COMPANY INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, RECKLESSNESS, FRAUD, OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
If you are dissatisfied with the Services or Content, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Services.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY; RELEASE
Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, will we be liable for any damages arising out of your use of the Services or of any information or Content made available on or through the Services, including indirect, incidental, special, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages, even if we are advised beforehand of the possibility of such damages. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain categories of damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. In such states, our liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by state law.
You hereby release First Look and its affiliates (and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, licensors, successors and assigns) from any and all claims, demands, losses, damages, rights, and actions of any kind, including personal injury, death, and property damage, that is related to or arises from your misuse of the Services, including, but not limited to, any interactions with or conduct of other users or third-party websites or services. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states that “[a] general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY HEREIN DO NOT EXCLUDE ANY PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS, STATUTORY CONSUMER RIGHTS, OR DAMAGES ASSOCIATED WITH PERSONAL INJURY OR RESULTING FROM COMPANY INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, RECKLESSNESS, FRAUD, OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless First Look, our affiliates, and each of our and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, licensors, successors and assigns from and against any and all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise out of your misuse of the Services, violation of these Terms by you, or your violation of any rights of another. We reserve the right to control the defense of any claim for which we are entitled to indemnification under this Section. In such event, you agree to provide us with such cooperation as is reasonably requested by us. We will make reasonable efforts to provide you with notice of any such claim, but our failure to provide such notice will not relieve you of the indemnification obligations. This provision does not require you to indemnify First Look for any unconscionable commercial practice or for First Look’s fraud; deception; false promise; misrepresentation; or concealment, suppression, or omission of any material fact in connection with the Services.
Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes and Choice of Law
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
· WE BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE: You and First Look agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate First Look’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances First Look may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
· WHAT IS ARBITRATION: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
· ARBITRATION PROCEDURES: The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in front of one arbitrator. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in this Terms will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. To initiate arbitration, you or First Look must do the following things:
· (1) Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.
· (2) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to your local JAMS office or to: JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco, CA 94111
· (3) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If travelling to New York is a burden, you may participate in the arbitration by phone or via document submission to the fullest extent allowable by the arbitrator. Each party will bear their own costs of arbitration unless the arbitrator directs that bearing such costs would be an undue burden and in that case, we will pay for your portion of the arbitration administrative costs (but not your attorneys’ fees). Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in the United States in New York, NY under New York law without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
· AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR: The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and First Look, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitration rules, and these Terms (and any applicable Additional Terms). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and First Look.
· NO CLASS ACTIONS: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
· WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and First Look in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND FIRST LOOK WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
· OPT-OUT OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing First Look here with the Subject Line “Arbitration Opt Out” and providing the requested information as follows: (1) your Name; (2) the URL of these Terms; (3) your Address; (4) your Phone Number; (5) and clear statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision in these Terms. The opt-out notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept the Terms by using the Services.
Waiver of Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN AN INJUNCTION OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND, SUCH AS ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, APPLICATION, CONTENT, SUBMISSIONS, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY FIRST LOOK OR A LICENSOR OF FIRST LOOK.
Our agreement under these Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action that you may have arising out of or related to use of the Services or these Terms must be filed by you within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
First Look controls and operates the Services from the U.S.A., and First Look makes no representation that the Services are appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S.A. You agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Software related to or made available by the Services may be subject to export controls of the U.S.A., and, except as authorized by law, you agree and warrant not to export or re-export the software to any county, or to any person, entity, or end-user subject to U.S. export controls or sanctions.
First Look reserves the right to investigate and prosecute any suspected breaches of these Terms or the Services. First Look may disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
The sections on Indemnification, Limitation of Liability; Release, and Disclaimers do not apply to New Jersey residents.
