6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

6.1. LAW AND JURISDICTION FOR LEGAL DISPUTES

This Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute (“claim”) coming out of or associated with this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state and country in which “The Website” has its corporate offices at the time of dispute regardless of your country of origin or where you access “The Website”, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods. You and “The Website” agree that all claims arising out of or related to this Agreement must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as explained in the Arbitration Option text underneath. You and “The Website” agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the state and country in which “The Website” has its corporate offices at the time of dispute for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that “The Website” shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

6.2. ARBITRATION OPTION.

For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000 (or its equivalent in any other foreign currency), the party requesting relief may choose to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution provider mutually agreed upon by both parties.

The alternative dispute resolution provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed upon by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Arbitration Agreement: The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Website shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against “The Website” in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against “The Website” any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.

Notice of Rights: By using “The Website” or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, you give up your right to go to court to assert or defend any claims between you and “The Website” (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). You also give up your right to participate in a class action or other class proceeding. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

7. GENERAL TERMS.

7.1. SEVERABILITY.

If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be altered so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.

7.2. LANGUAGE.

Where “The Website” has provided you with a translation of the English language version of this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and/or any other documentation, you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and any other documentation, including additional terms of service for Premium Services, will govern your relationship with “The Website”.

7.3. ENTIRE AGREEMENT.

You agree that this Agreement constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other “The Website” services, third-party content or third party software.

7.4. AMENDMENTS TO THIS AGREEMENT.

We reserve the right to modify, supplement or replace the terms of the Agreement, effective upon posting at our website or notifying you otherwise. If you do not want to agree to changes to the Agreement, you can terminate this Agreement at any time as per our termination clause. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between you and “The Website” regarding the use of the Website and/or the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

7.5. NO INFORMAL WAIVERS, AGREEMENTS, OR REPRESENTATIONS.

Our failure to act with respect to a breach of this Agreement by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Agreement, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by any “The Website” Affiliate shall be deemed legally binding on any “The Website” Affiliate, unless documented in a physical writing hand signed by a duly appointed officer of “The Website”.

7.6. NO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF.

In no event, or under no condition, shall you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Services or any content or other material used or displayed through the Services.

7.7. BENEFICIARIES.

Entities other than “The Website” that owns a majority interest in (“Affiliate”) are not parties, but intended third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, with a right to enforce the Agreement directly against you.

7.8. ASSIGNMENT, TRANSFER, AND DELEGATION.

You may not assign, transfer, or delegate any rights or obligations under the Agreement. Any purported assignment, transfer, and delegation shall be deemed ineffective. We are free to assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially, with or without notice to you. We may also substitute, effective upon notice to you, “The Website” for any third party that assumes our rights and obligations under this Agreement.

7.9. POTENTIAL OTHER RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.

It is possible that you may have rights or obligations under local law, other than those specified here, if you are located outside the United States.

8. CONTENT.

We primarily designed “The Website” to assist our members in attaining their online networking goals by connecting and sharing with others. In order to attain this objective, we encourage our Users to share correct, honest, truthful, and accurate information. We have great respect for the intellectual property rights of other entities. Accordingly, this Agreement necessitates that information posted by Users be accurate and not in violation of the intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties.

8.1. CONTENT ON “THE WEBSITE”.

Proprietary Rights: “The Website” owns and retains all proprietary rights in the Website and the Service. The Website contains the copyrighted material, trademarks, and other proprietary information of “The Website”, and its licensors. You may not copy, modify, publish, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any such proprietary information.

Reliance on Content, Advice, Suggestions, Offers, Etc: Opinions, advice, statements, suggestions, offers, or other information or content made available through the Service, but not directly by “The Website”, are those of their respective authors, and should not necessarily be relied upon. Such authors are solely responsible for such content. “The Website” does not: (i) guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information on the Service, or (ii) adopt, endorse or accept responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made by any party that appears on the Website. Under no circumstances will “The Website” or its affiliates be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on information or other content posted on the Website or transmitted to or by any Members.

8.2. CONTENT POSTED BY YOU ON “THE WEBSITE”.

You are solely responsible for the Content that you publish or display (hereinafter, “post”) on the Service, or transmit to other Members. You understand and agree that “The Website” may review and delete any postings, messages, emails, photos or profiles (collectively, “Content”), in each case in whole or in part, that in the sole judgment of “The Website” violate this Agreement or which might be offensive, illegal, or that might violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of Members.

By posting Content to any public area of “The Website”, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to “The Website”, its affiliates, licensees and successors, an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully paid, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, reproduce, adapt, modify and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. You further represent and warrant that public posting and use of your content by “The Website” will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party.

9. FREE AND PAID ACCOUNTS.

9.1. FREE ACCOUNTS. You may become a User of the Service at no cost. As a User, you will have the ability to do most of the activities, but not all of the features and services will be available within the Service. In order to access additional features and services, you must become a paid User to the Service. Please see Upgrade page within our site for a description of the current paid plans and their prices.

9.2. PAYMENT FOR PREMIUM SERVICES.

Billing and Payment: “The Website” bills you through an online account for use of the Service. You agree to pay “The Website” all charges at the prices you agreed to for any use of the Premium Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize “The Website” to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”) for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. “The Website” may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer, or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.

Automatic Renewal: If you have opted for automatic renewals, your Premium Service will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial Premium Service commitment period, and again after any subsequent Premium Service period, your Premium Service will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when upgrading to Premium Service. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please log in and go to the upgrade page. If you cancel your Premium Service, you may use your Premium Service until the end of your then-current Premium Service term; your Premium Service will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Premium Service fee paid for the then-current Premium Service period. By upgrading, you authorize “The Website” to charge your Payment Method now and again at the beginning of any subsequent Premium Service period. You also authorize “The Website” to charge you for any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your Premium Service payments. Upon the renewal of your Premium Service, if “The Website” does not receive payment from your Payment Method provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that “The Website” may either terminate or suspend your Premium Service and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new Premium Service commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).

Current Information: You must provide current, complete and accurate information for your Billing Account. You must promptly update all information to keep your Billing Account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, card number or expiration date), and you must promptly notify “The Website” if your Payment Method is canceled (including if you lose your card or it is stolen), or if you become aware of a potential breach of security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your name or password). If you fail to provide “The Website” any of the foregoing information, you agree that you are responsible for fees accrued under your Billing Account. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for you credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer.

Reaffirmation of Authorization: Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that “The Website” is authorized to charge your Payment Method. “The Website” may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive “The Website’s” right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service.

Free Trials and Other Promotions: Any free trial or other promotion that provides Premium Service level access to the Service must be used within the specified time of the trial. You must cancel your Premium Service before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged a Premium Service fee. If you cancel prior to the end of the trial period and are inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact customer service to have the charges reversed.
