0. SNAPCHAT™ TOS
Where possible, Casper has endeavoured to ensure our products and services adhere as closely as possible to the Terms of Service as provided by Snapchat™ Inc, however the use of this type of tool is inherently incapable of meeting these fully. More specifically the following terms provided by Snapchat™ will be broken:
Use of any scraping, data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods;
Accessing the Snapchat™ API with an unauthorized or third-party client
Depending on the particular use of Casper’s products and services others terms may be broken
By using Casper’s products and services you acknowledge that you are breaking these terms and furthermore agree that you will not hold Casper or LIAM COTTLE accountable for any damages that may result from the use of our products and services.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Casper and LIAM COTTLE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE PRODUCTS; (B) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT.

For any dispute you have with Casper, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If Casper has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration by the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand (“AMINZ”) under the Arbitration Act 1996, then in effect for the AMINZ, except as provided herein. Unless you and Casper agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. Each party will be responsible for paying any AMINZ filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AMINZ rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND Casper ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
11. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
This website, any information contained on it, and these terms and conditions of use will be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, New Zealand law. The New Zealand courts have exclusive jurisdiction to hear any disputes concerning matters involving this website.
Our Products are controlled and operated from New Zealand, and we make no representations that they are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
12. GENERAL TERMS
Notification Procedures and changes to these Terms.
Casper reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, and you agree to receive legal notices electronically if we so choose. We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you. By continuing to access or use the Products after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Products.
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Casper’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
