The App merely provides the Business with a customized platform. The inclusion of any Content on or through the App does not constitute our endorsement, sponsorship, recommendation or encouragement to suggest, or agree to perform, any service or provide any product, engage in any interaction, activity, transaction or dealings with any you or any third party, or an authorization or representation of affiliation with the Business or any other third party.
Any and all communications and interactions between you and the Business or third parties, and all consequences resulting from the above, are strictly between you and such parties, and you assume full and exclusive responsibility for them.

We may require additional information from you before completing payment transactions.
The Voucher and the Redeemable Product/Service are transactions between you and the Business, and all consequences resulting from the above, are strictly between you and such parties.

Your use of the App may be subject to additional third party terms and conditions that govern that application marketplace from which you downloaded the App, such as Google Play or Apple’s App Store.

Such other third parties are not responsible for providing maintenance and support services with respect to the App.
The following terms apply if you downloaded an App from Apple's App Store. You and us agree and acknowledge as follows:
These Terms are concluded between yourself and us, and not with Apple Inc. ("Apple"). Apple is not responsible for the App. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the App Store Terms of Service then the App Store Terms of Service will prevail, solely with respect to the conflicting provisions.
The license granted to you for the App is limited to a non-transferrable license to use the App on any iOS Products that you own or control, and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the App Store Terms of Service, except that such App may be accessed, acquired, and sued by other accounts associated with the purchaser via Family Sharing.
In the event of a failure to conform to any applicable warranty (if any warranty is applicable), you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the App to you (if you paid any). Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty, will not be at Apple’s responsibility.
Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including (i) product liability claims, (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
In the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s IP Rights, Apple will not be responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such infringement claim.
You must comply with applicable third party terms of agreement when using the App (e.g. you must not be in violation of your wireless data services agreement when you use the App).
Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms. Upon Your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) You are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
For avoidance of any doubt, it is hereby clarified that your use of any of the Apps may be subject to terms and conditions that govern your Device. You bear the sole and exclusive responsibility for complying with any terms and conditions that may additionally apply.
You may, at any time terminate these Terms by doing all the following:
We may terminate these Terms and your license to use the App, at any time by issuing you a notice of such termination, terminate and block your access to and use of the App, or in any other manner contemplated by these Terms. Upon termination by us, you must discontinue any and all use of the App and uninstall the App or Apps from all of your Devices.
The following sections shall survive any termination, or expiration of the Terms: Content and dealings, Your privacy, Intellectual property, Requests to remove Content from the App, Limitation of Liability, Indemnification, Consequences of termination, Governing Law & Jurisdiction, General.
Governing Law & Jurisdiction
These Terms govern your legal relationship with us, not with the Business.
Regardless of your place of residence, where you access or use the App from, the place in which the Business provide you with a service or product, or any interaction you have with the Business, these Terms and your use of the App will be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel, excluding any otherwise applicable rules of conflict of laws, which would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of Israel.
Before submitting any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of, in connection with or relating to these Terms, to adjudication in court, you and us will dedicate at least two weeks to attempt to amicably resolve such matter in an informal dispute resolution process. However, nothing herein shall, in any way, affect either party’s right to seek interim or emergency relief in the court of competent jurisdiction, or our right to lodge a claim against you pursuant to the indemnity clause above, in any court adjudicating a third party claim against us – all, without referring the matter to amicable resolution pursuant to the foregoing.
The competent courts located in the Tel-Aviv-Jaffa district will have exclusive and sole jurisdiction over any dispute, claim or controversy arising from, or in connection with, the Service and its use, and with respect to any matter relating to the validity, applicability, performance or interpretation of these Terms. You and us, each, hereby expressly consent to personal jurisdiction in Israel and expressly waive any right to object to such personal jurisdiction or the non-convenience of such forum.
Whenever used in these Terms, the term "Including", whether capitalized or not, means without limitation to the preceding phrase. All examples and e.g. notations are illustrative, not exhaustive.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the subject matter herein, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous negotiations and oral representations, agreements and statements.
These Terms may only be modified by written amendment duly executed by us. No waiver, concession, extension, representation, alteration, addition or derogation from the Terms by us, or pursuant to the Terms, will be effective unless consented to explicitly and executed in writing by our authorized representative.
Failure on our part to demand performance of any provision in the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any of our rights under the Terms.
You may not assign or transfer your rights and obligations under the Terms without our prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any attempted or actual assignment by you, without our prior consent, shall be null and void. Notwithstanding the provisions of the Assignment of Obligations Law-1969, we may assign these Terms in their entirety, including all right, duties, liabilities and obligations therein, upon notice to you and without obtaining your further specific consent, to a third-party, upon a merger, acquisition, change of control or the sale of all or substantially all of its equity or assets relating to the Agreement. By virtue of such assignment, the assignee assumes our stead, including all right, duties, liabilities and obligations.
The section headings in the Terms are included for convenience only and shall take no part in the interpretation or construing of the Terms.
If any provision of the Terms is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable by a competent court, then the provision shall be performed and enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law to reflect as closely as possible, the original intention of that provision, and the remaining provisions of the Terms shall continue to remain in full force and effect.
