Smartphone Application End User License Agreement
Welcome to LG&E and KU! The LG&E and KU Smartphone Application End User License Agreement ("Agreement") applies to the smartphone application provided by Louisville Gas and Electric Company ("LG&E") and Kentucky Utilities Company ("KU") (referred to as the "Application"). In this Agreement, we frequently refer to "LG&E and KU" together. However, this Agreement does not have the effect of making an LG&E customer a customer of KU or making a KU customer a customer of LG&E.
The highest priority of LG&E and KU is safety. LG&E and KU support safe driving practices and request that you not use the Application when you are driving a motor vehicle even if doing so is legally permitted in your location.

- You understand, accept, and have received this Agreement and its terms and conditions, and acknowledge and demonstrate that you can access this Agreement.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE COMPANIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF ONE OR BOTH OF LG&E AND KU HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE APPLICATION OR ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE APPLICATION.
You agree to indemnify and hold LG&E, KU and their affiliates, agents, employees, and licensors harmless from any claim, demand, loss, costs, or expense, including attorneys' fees, made by any person arising out of your violation of this Agreement, state or federal securities laws or regulations, or any other person's rights, including but not limited to infringement of any copyright or violation of any proprietary or privacy right.

The Agreement, and all future agreements you shall enter into with LG&E and KU, unless otherwise indicated on such other agreement, shall be governed by the law of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, without regard to conflicts of law principles thereof. This is the case regardless of whether you reside or transact business with LG&E, KU or any of their affiliates or agents in Kentucky or elsewhere. Unless a dispute would be governed by an applicable arbitration clause, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Jefferson, Kentucky. If any part of the Agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

If any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid under law, such invalidity shall not affect any other provision or provisions hereof which are otherwise valid. The failure of LG&E or KU to enforce any provision in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such provision or any other provision.
