YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO OUR SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN THE EVENT THAT ANY LIMITATION ON THE PERIOD OF TIME FOR BRINGING AN ACTION, CLAIM, DISPUTE OR PROCEEDING AGAINST US, LOCATED IN THIS "LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY" SECTION, IS DETERMINED OR HELD TO BE INAPPLICABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE BY ANY COURT, ARBITRATION PANEL OR OTHER TRIBUNAL, THEN THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUCH ACTION, CLAIM, DISPUTE OR PROCEEDING REFERRED TO FINAL OR BINDING ARBITRATION.
Arbitration and Governing Law
You agree that the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal court located in Los Angeles County, California. If you access the Website or use the Service from outside the United States, you waive all rights under the laws and regulations of the territory from which you access or use the Website or Service. Regardless of whether you access the Website or use the Service from outside the United States, all disputes shall be resolved in the United States as described above.
You and FStop agree that any disputes arising out of or related to the Website, the Service, this Agreement and/or any policies or practices of www.FStop.fm (a “Dispute”) will be subject to FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The only exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate Disputes are matters that may be taken to small-claims court or claims of infringement or misappropriation of FStop's copyright, patent, trade secret, trademark, service mark, trade dress or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, which FStop may elect to have resolved by means other than arbitration. Notwithstanding the above, FStop is always interested in attempting to resolve any Disputes by amicable and informal means, and we encourage you to contact us at contact@FStop.fm or by mail at FStop.fm, Attn: Dispute Manager, 1010 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 1105 Los Angeles, CA, 90017 before resorting to arbitration. YOU AND FStop AGREE THAT WE ARE EACH GIVING UP OUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT in connection with any Dispute, and that our rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY.
YOU AND FStop AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OUR OTHER USERS.
If the parties are unable to resolve a Dispute by informal means, the arbitration of Disputes will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), a non-profit organization not affiliated with FStop, in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and if deemed appropriate by the arbitrator, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against FStop (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Los Angeles County, California. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY DISPUTE MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DATE IN WHICH THE INCIDENT GIVING RISE TO THE DISPUTE OCCURRED. FAILURE TO FILE AN ARBITRATION CLAIM AS DESCRIBED ABOVE WITHIN THE APPLICABLE LIMITATIONS PERIOD CONSTITUTES A WAIVER OF SUCH CLAIM AND SERVES AS COMPLETE BAR TO ANY CLAIM BASED ON ANY DISPUTE.
Indemnity by You
You agree that you will be personally responsible for your use of the Service, and you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless FStop, the Company and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ and accounting fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to, use of or alleged use of the Service; (ii) your violation of the Terms or any representation, warranty, or agreements referenced herein, or any applicable law or regulation; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; or (iv) any disputes or issues between you and any third party. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of such claim.
You acknowledge that we may be irreparably damaged if this Agreement is not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you, we shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Agreement. For purposes of this Section, you agree that any action or proceeding with regard to such injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach shall be brought in the courts of record of California, or a United States District Court for California. You consent to the jurisdiction of such court and waive any objection to the venue of any such action or proceeding in such court.
The Company may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to this Agreement, using any reasonable means now known or hereafter developed, including by email, regular mail, SMS, MMS, text message or postings in the Service. Such notices may not be received if you violate this Agreement by accessing the Service in an unauthorized manner. You agree that you are deemed to have received any and all notices that would have been delivered had you accessed the Service in an authorized manner.
Severance and Waiver
If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in this Agreement, as may be amended by us, from time to time, shall survive your acceptance of this Agreement and the termination of this Agreement.
