Apple Not a Party.


If you have downloaded the App from Apple Inc. ("Apple"), you acknowledge that this Agreement is an agreement between you and Autocar, and not with Apple. As between Autocar and Apple, Autocar (not Apple) is solely responsible for the Services and the content, unless stated otherwise. Any Services obtained through Apple's App Store must be used only on an iOS device that you own or control, as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the App Store Terms of Service. You acknowledge and agree that Apple is not responsible for (i) providing any maintenance or support services with respect to the Services and that, as between Autocar and Apple, Autocar and its affiliates and partners (and not Apple) are responsible for providing such maintenance and support services; or (ii) any claims related to the Services or your possession and/or use thereof (including product liability claims, infringement claims, claims that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation), and that, as between Autocar and Apple, Autocar and its affiliates and partners (and not Apple) are responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any such claims. In the event of any failure of the Services purchased through the App Store to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple and Apple will refund you any access fee paid by you for those Services. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligations 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, as between Apple and Autocar, will be the Autocar’s sole responsibility. You further represent and warrant that (a) 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 (b) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. Apple and Apple's subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement and, upon your acceptance of this Agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce them against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.


Entire Agreement. This Terms of Use constitutes the entire agreement between you and Autocar and governs the terms and conditions of your use of the Services, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Autocar with respect to the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may also be subject to additional terms and conditions (including, but not limited to the Telematics Agreement), posted policies (including but not limited to the Privacy Policy), guidelines, or rules that may apply when you use the Services. Autocar may revise this Terms of Use at any time by updating this Agreement and posting it on the Site. Accordingly, you should visit the Site and review the Terms of Use periodically to determine if any changes have been made.
