We reserve the right to update this Agreement at any time. If we make any material changes to this Agreement, we will announce these changes on our Site and notify registered users via email.

You may never use another User’s account without permission. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.

You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in the mobile application. By providing the Edison Service with your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices and receipts, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications regarding activity on our Service to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings.

C. Services & Fees

While the Standard Service is free for use, additional data charges may apply through your mobile service provider. Additional fees may also apply for use of the Premium Version of the Edison Assistant app. If there is a charge associated with a portion of the Services, you agree to pay that charge by accessing or using it. The price stated for the Services may be denominated in your local currency by the Google Play Store or any other applicable app store through which you download the apps by Edison (each, an "App Store") on your device. Fees and charges are collected by the App Store on your device. You should consult with the appropriate App Store to determine if the price charged includes all applicable taxes and currency exchange settlements. You are solely responsible for paying such taxes or other charges. Edison relies on the App Store to collect subscription fees and to report on the status of subscription accounts. Your access to our Services may be suspended or cancelled if you do not make your payment on-time and/or in full.

Edison Services does not have the ability to manage any aspect of your subscription on your behalf, including, but not limited to, initiating, canceling or refunding subscriptions. For step-by-step info on how to manage subscriptions, including information on canceling subscriptions, visit the FAQ

10. General

A. Governing Law

You agree that the Service shall be deemed solely based in and governed by the laws of the State of California, and that the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Edison in jurisdictions other than California. Any claim or dispute between you and Edison that arises from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara County, California, unless submitted to arbitration as described below.

B. Arbitration

For any claim under this Agreement where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The party electing such arbitration shall initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, as selected by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

C. Entire Agreement/Severability

This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Edison in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Edison concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.

D. No Waiver

No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Edison's failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
