TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
These Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms”) govern your use of the virtual reality (VR) and other content the Virtual Reality Company and its subsidiaries (“VRC”) makes available through various platforms, including but not limited to web and mobile applications (“VRC Content”), as well as our website located at www.thevrcompany.com (the “Site”). By accessing the Site, downloading, installing, or otherwise using any VRC Content, you accept without limitation or qualification these Terms, which is a legal agreement between you and VRC. If you are accepting these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to the Terms, and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.
VRC may revise the Terms at any time, which revisions will be binding upon you should you continue to use the Site or download, install, access, or continue to use any VRC Content. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, please exit the Site now and refrain from further use of the Site and any VRC Content.
Health and Safety Notice: Read and follow all setup and operating instructions and safety warnings provided with any virtual reality equipment you are using in connection with the VRC Content. Virtual Reality (“VR”) content (“VR Content”), such as the VRC Content, produces an immersive virtual reality experience, and users may have reactions to that experience, including motion sickness, nausea, eye strain, disorientation, vertigo, seizures, general discomfort, headaches, anxiety, or other physical, mental or health-related injuries. These reactions may be triggered when viewing VR Content for a brief or sustained period of time. Immediately stop viewing VR Content if you experience any of these symptoms. Do not drive or operate machinery until you have recovered from any symptoms you experienced. See a doctor before viewing VR Content if you have a history of experiencing these symptoms or if you are prone to seizures. Anyone viewing VR Content should take frequent breaks while doing so. Remain seated whenever possible when viewing VR Content and take special care to be aware of your surroundings to ensure you do not injure yourself or other people around you while you are viewing or immediately after viewing VR Content. Viewing VR Content is not recommended for children without adult supervision.
I hereby, for myself, and on behalf of my heirs, executors, administrators, assigns or personal representatives, release and forever discharge VRC and its affiliates, members, partners, representatives, directors, employees, contractors, licensors, agents, and their successors and assigns (collectively, the “VRC Parties”) from and against any and all losses, damages, injuries (including death) or other liability financial or otherwise that may arise from my use of the VRC Content.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL SURVIVE AND APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY SPECIFIED IN THESE TERMS ARE FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
10. Export Laws. You agree to comply fully with all U.S. export laws and regulations to ensure that neither the VRC Content, the Site, nor any technical data related thereto, nor any direct product thereof are exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of, or used for any purposes prohibited by, such laws and regulations.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
