Your use of Add-ons is subject to these Terms and to the applicable fees posted or noted for such Add-Ons. You acknowledge for each Add-on you subscribe to or purchase through the Services, these Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and either Famo.us or if applicable, the third party licensor of that Add-on (“the Add-on Provider”) only.

You acknowledge and agree that Famo.us, and Famo.us’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of the agreement between you and the Add-on Provider for each Add-on, and that Famo.us will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
