Welcome to the world of Smart Toy®. Our toys allow kids to have conversations and go on magical adventures with their toys. A Smart Toy® will function without any connectivity, but pairing it to your home’s Wi-Fi connection via the parent app ("Smart Toy App") will allow the toy to automatically update with new content and receive firmware updates.

Governing Law; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH SMART TOY AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM SMART TOY.
You and Smart Toy agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from the Terms or relating to the Smart Toy App, except that you and Smart Toy are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable or other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
You and Smart Toy agree that you will notify each other of any dispute within 30 days of when it arises, that you will attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration, that any arbitration will occur in San Francisco, California and that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association. You and Smart Toy also agree that the state or federal courts in San Francisco County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. WHETHER THE DISPUTE IS HEARD IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND SMART TOY WILL NOT COMMENCE AGAINST THE OTHER A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary in the Terms, the following additional terms will apply to the download of the Smart Toy App for use on the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad:
