Nothing in these Terms removes or limits Spotify's liability for fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, death or personal injury caused by its negligence, and, if required by applicable law, gross negligence.
12.2 DISCLAIMERS. NO CONDITIONS, WARRANTIES OR OTHER TERMS APPLY TO THIS AGREEMENT OR TO ANY GOODS OR SERVICES SUPPLIED BY SPOTIFY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT UNLESS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SPOTIFY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY CONDITIONS OR WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY CONTENT DISTRIBUTED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT.
Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Spotify and its Affiliates, and each of our and their respective directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents, suppliers, partners, contractors, third-party licensors and representatives from and against all actions, damages, claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, that arise from or relate to: (a) Your activities on the Spotify Ad Analytics Platform; (b) Your violation of any law or the rights of a third party; or (c) any breach or alleged breach of any of Your representations, warranties or obligations set forth in this Agreement.

The indemnifying party's obligations under this section are contingent on the indemnified party: (x) promptly providing written notice of the claim to the indemnifying party; provided, however, that any delay in providing such notice shall not relieve the indemnifying party of any of its obligations except to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by such delay, (y) giving the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, and (z) providing the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party's expense, all reasonable assistance in connection with such claim. In no event will an indemnified party be liable for any settlement that admits any fault of or imposes any monetary liability on an indemnified party without its prior written consent (such consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
14.1 Term. This Agreement shall commence on the date on which You accept these Terms, and shall continue until terminated in accordance with these Terms or until Customer is no longer using the Spotify Ad Analytics Services, whichever is later (the "Term").

15.4 Order of Precedence. With respect to the following documents, in the event of any conflict, the order of precedence shall be as follows: any controlling agreement for the Services dated after June 13, 2023; these Master Terms and Conditions; and any applicable Spotify Ad Analytics or Spotify policies. For any Megaphone gated features provided by Spotify Ad Analytics, the Megaphone Terms of Service shall hold precedence over all others.
15.5 Assignment. This Agreement is personal to You, and is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by You except with our prior written consent. Spotify may assign, transfer or delegate any of our rights and obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, without Your consent and without notice to You.
15.6 Force Majeure. Neither party is liable for delay or default under this Agreement if caused by conditions beyond its reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable (e.g., technology malfunctions, outages of Internet Service; outages in third party hosted services, e.g., Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Services, or the like), or any other Force Majeure Events.
15.7 Modifications. We reserve the right to modify or otherwise change this Agreement at any time by posting the updated Agreement to our website(s) or through a notice provided through the Services, via email or by another appropriate means of electronic communication. Any such changes will not apply to any dispute between You and us arising prior to the date on which we posted the revised Agreement incorporating such changes, or otherwise notified You of such changes. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the updated Agreement will be effective immediately, and Your continued access to or use of our Services after we post the updated Agreement or provide other notice of such updated Agreement will confirm Your acceptance of the changes. If You do not agree to the updated Agreement, You must stop accessing and using our Services.
15.8 Publicity. Except as otherwise permitted in this Agreement, neither party will use the other party's name or trademark in any advertising, written press release and/or other public communication without the other party's prior written consent (email to suffice). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Spotify shall have the right to identify Customer as a customer of the Services by using Customer's name and trademark in the performance of the Services, and for general marketing and promotion of Spotify Ad Analytics and related services.
15.9 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. Customer shall provide Spotify with prompt written notice of any alleged breach by Spotify or such breach shall be deemed waived, and Spotify shall have thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice to cure such breach. Customer and Spotify agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy ("Dispute") between Customer and Spotify arising in connection with or relating in any way to this Agreement or to Customer's relationship with Spotify (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of this Agreement) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. Customer and Spotify agree that prior to initiating any such arbitration, the parties will first endeavor to settle the Dispute by informal settlement discussions between representatives with authority to resolve the dispute; and if that is unsuccessful, then through a confidential mediation conducted in the County of New York and administered by JAMS or its successor ("JAMS"). If a Dispute is not otherwise resolved through direct discussions or mediation, it shall then be resolved by confidential arbitration conducted in the County of New York, and administered by JAMS in accordance with its Comprehensive (for claims over $250,000) or Streamlined (for claims under $250,000) Rules and Procedures. The arbitration shall be held before a single neutral (i.e., mutually approved or otherwise appointed) arbitrator. Customer and Spotify further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on the arbitrator's own jurisdiction pursuant to this Agreement, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, that the parties have waived, including any waiver set forth herein, or that benefits anyone but the parties to the arbitration. Upon conclusion of any arbitration proceedings hereunder, the arbitrator shall render findings of fact and conclusions of law and a written opinion setting forth the basis and reasons for any decision he or she has reached. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any state or federal court in the County of New York having jurisdiction of the matter thereof if necessary to ensure performance in accordance with the award. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
15.10 Notices. All notices under this Agreement must be in writing and sent via internationally recognized delivery service or US mail to Spotify USA Inc. Attn: Legal Department, 4 World Trade Center, 150 Greenwich Street, Floor 62, New York, New York 10007, USA, with an electronic copy sent to email@example.com.

15.11 No Waiver. Spotify's failure to enforce any part of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of this Agreement. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will waive compliance in the future. In order for any waiver of compliance with this Agreement to be binding, we must provide You with written notice of such waiver through one of our authorized representatives.
15.12 Entire Agreement. This Agreement represents the entire agreement between Spotify and You with respect to Your use of the Services. As between Spotify and You, this Agreement expressly supersedes all prior agreements and understandings regarding these Services and any subject matter contained in this Agreement that are presented or provided by either Customer or Agency.
