THE FORE­GO­ING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIA­BIL­I­TY THAT CAN­NOT BE EXCLUD­ED OR LIM­IT­ED UNDER APPLIC­A­BLE LAW.

Indem­ni­fi­ca­tion

You agree to defend, indem­ni­fy, and hold harm­less the Com­pa­ny, its affil­i­ates, licen­sors, and ser­vice providers, and its and their respec­tive offi­cers, direc­tors, employ­ees, con­trac­tors, agents, licen­sors, sup­pli­ers, suc­ces­sors, and assigns from and against any claims, lia­bil­i­ties, dam­ages, judg­ments, awards, loss­es, costs, expens­es, or fees (includ­ing rea­son­able attor­neys’ fees) aris­ing out of or relat­ing to your vio­la­tion of these Terms of Use or your use of the Web­site, includ­ing, but not lim­it­ed to, your User Con­tri­bu­tions, any use of the Web­site’s con­tent, ser­vices, and prod­ucts oth­er than as express­ly autho­rized in these Terms of Use or your use of any infor­ma­tion obtained from the Website.

Gov­ern­ing Law and Jurisdiction

All mat­ters relat­ing to the Web­site and these Terms of Use and any dis­pute or claim aris­ing there­from or relat­ed there­to (in each case, includ­ing non-con­­trac­­tu­al dis­putes or claims), shall be gov­erned by and con­strued in accor­dance with the laws of the Com­mon­wealth of Vir­ginia with­out giv­ing effect to any choice or con­flict of law pro­vi­sion or rule (whether of the Com­mon­wealth of Vir­ginia or any oth­er jurisdiction).

Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion. Please read the fol­low­ing arbi­tra­tion agree­ment in this Sec­tion (“Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment”) care­ful­ly. It requires you to arbi­trate dis­putes with Com­pa­ny, its par­ent com­pa­nies, sub­sidiaries, affil­i­ates, suc­ces­sors and assigns and all of their respec­tive offi­cers, direc­tors, employ­ees, agents, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives (col­lec­tive­ly, the Com­pa­ny Par­ties”) and lim­its the man­ner in which you can seek relief from the Com­pa­ny Parties.

Applic­a­bil­i­ty of Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment. You agree that any dis­pute between you and any of the Com­pa­ny Par­ties relat­ing in any way to the Ser­vices or this Agree­ment, will be resolved by bind­ing arbi­tra­tion, rather than in court, except that (1) you and the Com­pa­ny Par­ties may assert indi­vid­u­al­ized claims in small claims court if the claims qual­i­fy, remain in such court and advance sole­ly on an indi­vid­ual, non-class basis; and (2) you or the Com­pa­ny Par­ties may seek equi­table relief in court for infringe­ment or oth­er mis­use of intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights (such as trade­marks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copy­rights, and patents). This Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment shall sur­vive the expi­ra­tion or ter­mi­na­tion of this Agree­ment and shall apply, with­out lim­i­ta­tion, to all claims that arose or were assert­ed before the date you accept these Terms of Use (as described in the pre­am­ble) or any pri­or ver­sion of this Agree­ment. This Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment does not pre­clude you from bring­ing issues to the atten­tion of fed­er­al, state or local agen­cies. Such agen­cies can, if the law allows, seek relief against the Com­pa­ny Par­ties on your behalf. For pur­pos­es of this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment, Dis­pute” will also include dis­putes that arose or involve facts occur­ring before the exis­tence of this or any pri­or ver­sions of the Agree­ment as well as claims that may arise after the ter­mi­na­tion of this Agreement. 

Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion. There might be instances when a Dis­pute aris­es between you and Com­pa­ny. If that occurs, Com­pa­ny is com­mit­ted to work­ing with you to reach a rea­son­able res­o­lu­tion. You and Com­pa­ny agree that good faith infor­mal efforts to resolve Dis­putes can result in a prompt, low‐​cost and mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial out­come. You and Com­pa­ny there­fore agree that before either par­ty com­mences arbi­tra­tion against the oth­er (or ini­ti­ates an action in small claims court if a par­ty so elects), we will per­son­al­ly meet and con­fer tele­phon­i­cal­ly or via video­con­fer­ence, in a good faith effort to resolve infor­mal­ly any Dis­pute cov­ered by this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment (“Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence”). If you are rep­re­sent­ed by coun­sel, your coun­sel may par­tic­i­pate in the con­fer­ence, but you will also par­tic­i­pate in the conference.

The par­ty ini­ti­at­ing a Dis­pute must give notice to the oth­er par­ty in writ­ing of its intent to ini­ti­ate an Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence (“Notice”), which shall occur with­in 45 days after the oth­er par­ty receives such Notice, unless an exten­sion is mutu­al­ly agreed upon by the par­ties. Notice to Com­pa­ny that you intend to ini­ti­ate an Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence should be sent by email to: support@​fringe.​us or by reg­u­lar mail to our offices locat­ed at 1717 Sum­mit Avenue, Rich­mond, VA 23230. The Notice must include: (1) your name, tele­phone num­ber, mail­ing address, e‐​mail address asso­ci­at­ed with your account (if you have one); (2) the name, tele­phone num­ber, mail­ing address and e‐​mail address of your coun­sel, if any; and (3) a descrip­tion of your Dispute.

The Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence shall be indi­vid­u­al­ized such that a sep­a­rate con­fer­ence must be held each time either par­ty ini­ti­ates a Dis­pute, even if the same law firm or group of law firms rep­re­sents mul­ti­ple users in sim­i­lar cas­es, unless all par­ties agree; mul­ti­ple indi­vid­u­als ini­ti­at­ing a Dis­pute can­not par­tic­i­pate in the same Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence unless all par­ties agree. In the time between a par­ty receiv­ing the Notice and the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence, noth­ing in this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment shall pro­hib­it the par­ties from engag­ing in infor­mal com­mu­ni­ca­tions to resolve the ini­ti­at­ing party’s Dis­pute. Engag­ing in the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence is a con­di­tion prece­dent and require­ment that must be ful­filled before com­menc­ing arbi­tra­tion. The statute of lim­i­ta­tions and any fil­ing fee dead­lines shall be tolled while the par­ties engage in the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Con­fer­ence process required by this section.

Arbi­tra­tion Rules and Forum. This Agree­ment evi­dences a trans­ac­tion involv­ing inter­state com­merce; and notwith­stand­ing any oth­er pro­vi­sion here­in with respect to the applic­a­ble sub­stan­tive law, the Fed­er­al Arbi­tra­tion Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., will gov­ern the inter­pre­ta­tion and enforce­ment of this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment and any arbi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ings. If the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Process described above does not resolve sat­is­fac­to­ri­ly with­in six­ty (60) days after receipt of your Notice, you and Com­pa­ny agree that either par­ty shall have the right to final­ly resolve the Dis­pute through bind­ing arbi­tra­tion. The Fed­er­al Arbi­tra­tion Act gov­erns the inter­pre­ta­tion and enforce­ment of this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment. The arbi­tra­tion will be con­duct­ed by JAMS, an estab­lished alter­na­tive dis­pute res­o­lu­tion provider. Dis­putes involv­ing claims and coun­ter­claims with an amount in con­tro­ver­sy under $250,000, not inclu­sive of attor­neys’ fees and inter­est, shall be sub­ject to JAMS’ most cur­rent ver­sion of the Stream­lined Arbi­tra­tion Rules and pro­ce­dures avail­able at http://​www​.jam​sadr​.com/​r​u​l​e​s​-​s​t​r​e​a​m​l​i​n​e​d​-​a​r​b​i​t​r​a​tion/; all oth­er claims shall be sub­ject to JAMS’s most cur­rent ver­sion of the Com­pre­hen­sive Arbi­tra­tion Rules and Pro­ce­dures, avail­able at http://​www​.jam​sadr​.com/​r​u​l​e​s​-​c​o​m​p​r​e​h​e​n​s​i​v​e​-​a​r​b​i​t​r​a​tion/. JAMS’s rules are also avail­able at www​.jam​sadr​.com or by call­ing JAMS at 800−352−5267. A par­ty who wish­es to ini­ti­ate arbi­tra­tion must pro­vide the oth­er par­ty with a request for arbi­tra­tion (the Request”). The Request must include: (1) the name, tele­phone num­ber, mail­ing address, e‐​mail address of the par­ty seek­ing arbi­tra­tion and the account user­name (if applic­a­ble) as well as the email address asso­ci­at­ed with any applic­a­ble account; (2) a state­ment of the legal claims being assert­ed and the fac­tu­al bases of those claims; (3) a descrip­tion of the rem­e­dy sought and an accu­rate, good‐​faith cal­cu­la­tion of the amount in con­tro­ver­sy in Unit­ed States Dol­lars; (4) a state­ment cer­ti­fy­ing com­ple­tion of the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion process as described above; and (5) evi­dence that the request­ing par­ty has paid any nec­es­sary fil­ing fees in con­nec­tion with such arbitration. 

If the par­ty request­ing arbi­tra­tion is rep­re­sent­ed by coun­sel, the Request shall also include counsel’s name, tele­phone num­ber, mail­ing address, and email address. Such coun­sel must also sign the Request. By sign­ing the Request, coun­sel cer­ti­fies to the best of counsel’s knowl­edge, infor­ma­tion, and belief, formed after an inquiry rea­son­able under the cir­cum­stances, that: (1) the Request is not being pre­sent­ed for any improp­er pur­pose, such as to harass, cause unnec­es­sary delay, or need­less­ly increase the cost of dis­pute res­o­lu­tion; (2) the claims, defens­es and oth­er legal con­tentions are war­rant­ed by exist­ing law or by a non­friv­o­lous argu­ment for extend­ing, mod­i­fy­ing, or revers­ing exist­ing law or for estab­lish­ing new law; and (3) the fac­tu­al and dam­ages con­tentions have evi­den­tiary sup­port or, if specif­i­cal­ly so iden­ti­fied, will like­ly have evi­den­tiary sup­port after a rea­son­able oppor­tu­ni­ty for fur­ther inves­ti­ga­tion or discovery.

Unless you and Com­pa­ny oth­er­wise agree, or the Batch Arbi­tra­tion process dis­cussed in the sub­sec­tion titled Batch Fil­ing” trig­gered, the arbi­tra­tion will be con­duct­ed in the coun­ty where you reside. Sub­ject to the JAMS Rules, the arbi­tra­tor may direct a lim­it­ed and rea­son­able exchange of infor­ma­tion between the par­ties, con­sis­tent with the expe­dit­ed nature of the arbi­tra­tion. If the JAMS is not avail­able to arbi­trate, the par­ties will select an alter­na­tive arbi­tral forum. Your respon­si­bil­i­ty to pay any JAMS fees and costs will be sole­ly as set forth in the applic­a­ble JAMS Rules.

You and Com­pa­ny agree that all mate­ri­als and doc­u­ments exchanged dur­ing the arbi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ings shall be kept con­fi­den­tial and shall not be shared with any­one except the par­ties’ attor­neys, accoun­tants, or busi­ness advi­sors, and then sub­ject to the con­di­tion that they agree to keep all mate­ri­als and doc­u­ments exchanged dur­ing the arbi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ings confidential.

Author­i­ty of Arbi­tra­tor. The arbi­tra­tor shall have exclu­sive author­i­ty to resolve all dis­putes sub­ject to arbi­tra­tion here­un­der includ­ing, with­out lim­i­ta­tion, any dis­pute relat­ed to the inter­pre­ta­tion, applic­a­bil­i­ty, enforce­abil­i­ty or for­ma­tion of this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment or any por­tion of the Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment, except for the fol­low­ing: (1) all Dis­putes aris­ing out of or relat­ing to the sub­sec­tion enti­tled Waiv­er of Class and Oth­er Non-Indi­vid­u­al­ized Relief,” includ­ing any claim that all or part of the sub­sec­tion enti­tled Waiv­er of Class and Oth­er Non-Indi­vid­u­al­ized Relief” is unen­force­able, ille­gal, void or void­able, or that such sub­sec­tion enti­tled Waiv­er of Class and Oth­er Non-Indi­vid­u­al­ized Relief” has been breached, shall be decid­ed by a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion and not by an arbi­tra­tor; (2) except as express­ly con­tem­plat­ed in the sub­sec­tion enti­tled Batch Arbi­tra­tion,” all Dis­putes about the pay­ment of arbi­tra­tion fees shall be decid­ed only by a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion and not by an arbi­tra­tor; (3) all Dis­putes about whether either par­ty has sat­is­fied any con­di­tion prece­dent to arbi­tra­tion shall be decid­ed only by a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion and not by an arbi­tra­tor; and (4) all Dis­putes about which ver­sion of the Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment applies shall be decid­ed only by a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion and not by an arbi­tra­tor. The arbi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ing will not be con­sol­i­dat­ed with any oth­er mat­ters or joined with any oth­er cas­es or par­ties, except as express­ly pro­vid­ed in the sub­sec­tion enti­tled Batch Arbi­tra­tion.” The arbi­tra­tor shall have the author­i­ty to grant motions dis­pos­i­tive of all or part of any claim or dis­pute. The arbi­tra­tor shall have the author­i­ty to award mon­e­tary dam­ages and to grant any non-mon­e­tary rem­e­dy or relief avail­able to an indi­vid­ual par­ty under applic­a­ble law, the arbi­tral forum’s rules, and this Agree­ment (includ­ing the Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment). The arbi­tra­tor shall issue a writ­ten award and state­ment of deci­sion describ­ing the essen­tial find­ings and con­clu­sions on which any award (or deci­sion not to ren­der an award) is based, includ­ing the cal­cu­la­tion of any dam­ages award­ed. The arbi­tra­tor shall fol­low the applic­a­ble law. The award of the arbi­tra­tor is final and bind­ing upon you and us. Judg­ment on the arbi­tra­tion award may be entered in any court hav­ing jurisdiction.

Waiv­er of Jury Tri­al. EXCEPT AS SPEC­I­FIED IN THE SUB­SEC­TION TITLED APPLIC­A­BIL­I­TY OF ARBI­TRA­TION AGREE­MENT”, YOU AND THE COM­PA­NY PAR­TIES HERE­BY WAIVE ANY CON­STI­TU­TION­AL AND STATU­TO­RY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVETRI­AL IN FRONT OFJUDGE ORJURY. You and the Com­pa­ny Par­ties are instead elect­ing that all cov­ered claims and dis­putes shall be resolved exclu­sive­ly by arbi­tra­tion under this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment, except as spec­i­fied in sub­sec­tion titled Applic­a­bil­i­ty of Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment” above. An arbi­tra­tor can award on an indi­vid­ual basis the same dam­ages and relief as a court and must fol­low this Agree­ment as a court would. How­ev­er, there is no judge or jury in arbi­tra­tion, and court review of an arbi­tra­tion award is sub­ject to very lim­it­ed review. 

Waiv­er of Class or Oth­er Non-Indi­vid­u­al­ized Relief. YOU AND COM­PA­NY AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS SPEC­I­FIED IN SUB­SEC­TION TITLED BATCH FIL­ING”, EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTH­ER ONLY ON AN INDI­VID­UAL BASIS AND NOT ONCLASS, REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVE, OR COL­LEC­TIVE BASIS, AND THE PAR­TIES HERE­BY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY DIS­PUTE BE BROUGHT, HEARD, ADMIN­IS­TERED, RESOLVED, OR ARBI­TRAT­ED ONCLASS, COL­LEC­TIVE, REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVE, OR MASS ACTION BASIS. ONLY INDI­VID­UAL RELIEF IS AVAIL­ABLE, AND DIS­PUTES OF MORE THAN ONE CUS­TOMER OR USER CAN­NOT BE ARBI­TRAT­ED OR CON­SOL­I­DAT­ED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTH­ER CUS­TOMER OR USER. Sub­ject to this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment, the arbi­tra­tor may award declara­to­ry or injunc­tive relief only in favor of the indi­vid­ual par­ty seek­ing relief and only to the extent nec­es­sary to pro­vide relief war­rant­ed by the party’s indi­vid­ual claim. Noth­ing in this para­graph is intend­ed to, nor shall it, affect the terms and con­di­tions under the sub­sec­tion titled Batch Fil­ing” enti­tled Batch Arbi­tra­tion.” Notwith­stand­ing any­thing to the con­trary in this Arbi­tra­tion Agree­ment, if a court decides by means of a final deci­sion, not sub­ject to any fur­ther appeal or recourse, that the lim­i­ta­tions of this sub­sec­tion, Waiv­er of Class and Oth­er Non-Indi­vid­u­al­ized Relief,” are invalid or unen­force­able as to a par­tic­u­lar claim or request for relief (such as a request for pub­lic injunc­tive relief), you and Com­pa­ny agree that that par­tic­u­lar claim or request for relief (and only that par­tic­u­lar claim or request for relief) shall be sev­ered from the arbi­tra­tion and may be lit­i­gat­ed in the state or fed­er­al courts locat­ed in the State of Neva­da. All oth­er Dis­putes shall be arbi­trat­ed or lit­i­gat­ed in small claims court. This sub­sec­tion does not pre­vent you or Com­pa­ny from par­tic­i­pat­ing in a class-wide set­tle­ment of claims.

Attor­neys’ Fees and Costs. The par­ties shall bear their own attor­neys’ fees and costs in arbi­tra­tion unless the arbi­tra­tor finds that either the sub­stance of the Dis­pute or the relief sought in the Request was friv­o­lous or was brought for an improp­er pur­pose (as mea­sured by the stan­dards set forth in Fed­er­al Rule of Civ­il Pro­ce­dure 11(b)). If you or Com­pa­ny need to invoke the author­i­ty of a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion to com­pel arbi­tra­tion, then the par­ty that obtains an order com­pelling arbi­tra­tion in such action shall have the right to col­lect from the oth­er par­ty its rea­son­able costs, nec­es­sary dis­burse­ments, and rea­son­able attor­neys’ fees incurred in secur­ing an order com­pelling arbi­tra­tion. The pre­vail­ing par­ty in any court action relat­ing to whether either par­ty has sat­is­fied any con­di­tion prece­dent to arbi­tra­tion, includ­ing the Infor­mal Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion Process, is enti­tled to recov­er their rea­son­able costs, nec­es­sary dis­burse­ments, and rea­son­able attor­neys’ fees and costs.

Batch Arbi­tra­tion. To increase the effi­cien­cy of admin­is­tra­tion and res­o­lu­tion of arbi­tra­tions, you and Com­pa­ny agree that in the event that there are one hun­dred (100) or more indi­vid­ual Requests of a sub­stan­tial­ly sim­i­lar nature filed against Com­pa­ny by or with the assis­tance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or orga­ni­za­tions, with­in a thir­ty (30) day peri­od (or as soon as pos­si­ble there­after), the JAMS shall (1) admin­is­ter the arbi­tra­tion demands in batch­es of 100 Requests per batch (plus, to the extent there are less than 100 Requests left over after the batch­ing described above, a final batch con­sist­ing of the remain­ing Requests); (2) appoint one arbi­tra­tor for each batch; and (3) pro­vide for the res­o­lu­tion of each batch as a sin­gle con­sol­i­dat­ed arbi­tra­tion with one set of fil­ing and admin­is­tra­tive fees due per side per batch, one pro­ce­dur­al cal­en­dar, one hear­ing (if any) in a place to be deter­mined by the arbi­tra­tor, and one final award (“Batch Arbi­tra­tion”).

All par­ties agree that Requests are of a sub­stan­tial­ly sim­i­lar nature” if they arise out of or relate to the same event or fac­tu­al sce­nario and raise the same or sim­i­lar legal issues and seek the same or sim­i­lar relief. To the extent the par­ties dis­agree on the appli­ca­tion of the Batch Arbi­tra­tion process, the dis­agree­ing par­ty shall advise the JAMS, and the JAMS shall appoint a sole stand­ing arbi­tra­tor to deter­mine the applic­a­bil­i­ty of the Batch Arbi­tra­tion process (“Admin­is­tra­tive Arbi­tra­tor”). In an effort to expe­dite res­o­lu­tion of any such dis­pute by the Admin­is­tra­tive Arbi­tra­tor, the par­ties agree the Admin­is­tra­tive Arbi­tra­tor may set forth such pro­ce­dures as are nec­es­sary to resolve any dis­putes prompt­ly. The Admin­is­tra­tive Arbitrator’s fees shall be paid by Company.

You and Com­pa­ny agree to coop­er­ate in good faith with the JAMS to imple­ment the Batch Arbi­tra­tion process includ­ing the pay­ment of sin­gle fil­ing and admin­is­tra­tive fees for batch­es of Requests, as well as any steps to min­i­mize the time and costs of arbi­tra­tion, which may include: (1) the appoint­ment of a dis­cov­ery spe­cial mas­ter to assist the arbi­tra­tor in the res­o­lu­tion of dis­cov­ery dis­putes; and (2) the adop­tion of an expe­dit­ed cal­en­dar of the arbi­tra­tion proceedings.
