In the event that the pre-authorization is greater than the final amount, the difference will be released after your order is completed or cancelled; depending on your bank, it may take up to 5 business days to receive access to these released funds. Bevz also places an initial temporary pre-authorization hold on each new payment method you add to your account. Bevz reserves the right to request additional information from you if we have reason to believe, in our sole discretion, that a payment method may be fraudulent.

7. User Content
(a) User Content. Bevz may provide you with interactive opportunities through the Platform, including, by way of example, the ability to post User ratings and reviews (collectively, “User Content”). You represent and warrant that you are the owner of, or otherwise have the right to provide, all User Content that you submit, post and/or otherwise transmit (“Make Available”) through the Platform. You hereby grant Bevz a perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, fully paid, royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully sublicenseable right and license to use, copy, display, publish, modify, remove, publicly perform, translate, create derivative works, distribute and/or otherwise use the User Content in connection with Bevz’s business and in all forms now known or hereafter invented (“Uses”), without notification to and/or approval by you.

(c) Ratings and Reviews. To the extent that you are asked to rate and post reviews of Retailers or other businesses (“Ratings” and “Reviews”), such Ratings and Reviews are considered User Content and are governed by this Agreement. Ratings and Reviews are not endorsed by Bevz and do not represent the views of Bevz or its affiliates. Bevz does not assume liability for Ratings and Reviews or for any claims for economic loss resulting from such Ratings and Reviews. Because we strive to maintain a high level of integrity with respect to Ratings and Reviews posted or otherwise made available through the Platform, you agree that: (i) you will base any Rating or Review on first-hand experience with the Retailer or business; (ii) you will not provide a Rating or Review for any Retailer or business for which you have an ownership interest, employment relationship or other affiliation or for any of that company’s competitors; (iii) you will not submit a Rating or Review in exchange for payment, free food items, or other benefits from a Retailer or business and (iv) your review will comply with the terms of this Agreement.

8. Intellectual Property Notice
Bevz hereby grants to you, subject to these Terms, a personal, nonexclusive, nontransferable, limited license (without the right to sublicense) to access and use the Platform (including updates and upgrades that replace or supplement it in any respect and which are not distributed with a separate license, and any documentation) solely for your personal use on a mobile or other device that you own or control. These Terms do not permit you to install or use the App on a mobile or other device that you do not own or control and you may not distribute or make all or any portion of the Platform available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.

10. Termination and Suspension
Bevz has the right to suspend or terminate your account or access to all or any part of the Platform at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. Bevz reserves the right to refuse Platform to anyone for any reason at any time.
All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.
11. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
(a) This is a Class Action Waiver. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Bevz in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Bevz agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding individual arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. While the parties will be permitted to engage in discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the dispute, arbitration may allow for more limited discovery allowed for in court. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, the Platform, or your relationship with us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms.
YOU AND BEVZ 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 ACTION.
Unless both you and Bevz agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The court may award 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.
Any arbitration between you and Bevz shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, governed by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures (collectively, “JAMS Rules”), as modified by these Terms, and administered by JAMS. The JAMS Rules and fee information are available at www.jamsadr.org or by calling JAMS at 1-800-352-5267. The arbitrator is bound by these arbitration terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrabilty of this Section 11.
(b) Notice. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”).
Bevz’s address for Notice is:
The Notice must: (1) Describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) Set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Bevz may commence an arbitration proceeding.
(c) Opt Out. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by submitting a request here. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your creating an account with Bevz or the effective date of the first set of Terms containing a Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section, whichever is later; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Bevz also will not be bound by them.

We will not be liable for damages or losses arising from your use or inability to use the Platform or otherwise arising under this Agreement.

15. Third-Party Interactions
(a) We may link to or be linked from other websites and the Platform may contain third-party advertisements (collectively “Third Party Websites & Advertisements”) that are not maintained by, or related to, Bevz. We do not endorse, and is not responsible for, the content of any of those Third-Party Websites & Advertisements. You acknowledge Bevz has not reviewed and does not endorse the content of all sites linked to from the Site or App and is not responsible for the content or actions of any other sites linked to, or advertisements contained on the Site or App. We do not promise that the contents of any Third-Party Websites & Advertisements are accurate, compliant with local, state or federal law, including any intellectual property laws.
