Third Party Content and Applications
Dispatch Services may contain information and materials provided to Dispatch by third parties (collectively, “Third Party Content”). Third Party Content is the copyrighted work of its owner, who expressly retains all right, title and interest in and to the Third Party Content, including, without limitation, all intellectual property rights therein and thereto.
Also, Dispatch Services may from time to time make available web-based, mobile, offline, online or other applications, tools, products or services that are provided by a third party (“Third Party Applications”), which may include APIs, mapping applications, databases, information and content. Your acquisition and use of Third Party Applications, and any exchange of data between you and any third party provider, is solely between you and the applicable third party. We do not warrant or support Third Party Applications, whether or not they are designated by us as “certified” or otherwise. If you are unable or unwilling to comply with the terms or conditions applicable to your use of a Third Party Application, then you must not use that Third Party Application. Also, you acknowledge that, although some features of the Dispatch Services (including the Apps) may permit integration with third party products, applications and information, your license to use Dispatch Services does not, by itself, convey or imply licensing rights to use any information or products not provided by Dispatch, and separate licensure may be required by third party product providers.
You will not, and will not allow third parties under your direction to: (i) use Third Party Content or Third Party Applications to create, train, or improve (directly or indirectly) a similar product or service, including any machine translation engine, (ii) use or retain translated text or any other data from Third Party Content or Third Party Applications for the purpose of creating, training, or improving (directly or indirectly) a translation system, product, or service, (iii) integrate Third Party Content or Third Party Applications with any applications for any embedded devices such as cars, TVs, appliances, or speakers, (iv) use Third Party Content or Third Party Applications to provide a service, application, or functionality of network transport or transmission (including, but not limited to, IP transit, virtual private networks, or content delivery networks); or (v) sell bandwidth from any Third Party Content or Third Party Applications.
If you enable or use Third Party Applications within the Apps or Dispatch Services, you acknowledge that we may allow providers of those Third Party Applications to access your data as required for the interoperation of such Third Party Applications with the Apps and Dispatch Services. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of your data resulting from any such access by a Third Party Application or its provider.
Dispatch Services may contain features designed to interoperate with Third Party Applications (e.g., email, text messaging, or customer relationship management applications). To use such features, you may be required to obtain access to such Third Party Applications directly from a third party provider or to grant us access to your account(s) on such Third Party Applications. We cannot guarantee the continued availability of such features, and may cease providing them without entitling you to any refund, credit, or other compensation, if for example and without limitation, the provider of Third Party Applications ceases to make the Third Party Applications available for interoperation with the corresponding Service features in a manner acceptable to us.
Certain Third Party Applications and Third Party Content are subject to separate terms and conditions. You must agree to those terms and conditions before accessing or using such Third Party Applications, and you must comply with such terms and conditions. We may modify, remove or replace Third Party Applications and Third Party Content from time to time.

If any charges are not received from you by the due date, then, at our discretion, such charges may accrue late interest at the rate of one and a half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.
If any amount owing by you under these Terms of Service is thirty (30) or more days overdue (or ten (10) or more days overdue in the case of amounts you have authorized us to charge to your credit card using our designated payment processors), we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, accelerate your unpaid fee obligations so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, suspend your access to the Dispatch Services (including the Purchased Service) until such amounts are paid in full and/or terminate these Terms of Service. We will give you at least seven (7) days prior notice that your account is overdue before suspending services to you.
Unless otherwise stated, our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, "Taxes").

Arbitration shall be conducted by and submitted to a single arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) selected from and administered by the Boston, Massachusetts office of JAMS (“JAMS”), in accordance with its then-existing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, and sole and exclusive venue and jurisdiction is so vested and consented to by both parties. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering, or punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Arbitrator and JAMS; however, the Arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the Arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the Arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to seek equitable relief and enforce judgments in any court of competent jurisdiction.
