You are solely responsible and liable for: (i) any breach of your representations, warranties, covenants or obligations under these Terms and for the consequences of such breach, including any resulting loss or damage incurred by us or third parties; (ii) all activities that occur under your registration or account to the Athlete CRUSH Inc. App; and (iii) any actions and omissions by any of your personnel and/or other persons and entities under your control or supervision.
19) How Disputes Are Resolved and What Law Applies
When you accept these Terms, you and we are entering into a binding contract. That contract and our relationship with one another arising from your use of the Athlete CRUSH Inc. App will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware (USA) applicable to contracts entered into and performed exclusively in that State.
If you and we have any sort of legal dispute or claim arising out of or relating to your use of the Athlete CRUSH Inc. App, and it can’t be resolved by friendly discussion, then you agree that it will be submitted to final and binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Athlete CRUSH Inc. App, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
19.1) Exceptions:Notwithstanding the language above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (A) bring an individual action in small claims court; (B) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (C) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (D) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
19.2) Arbitration Rules:Arbitration under these Terms will be conducted in Delaware (USA), under the Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association, by a single arbitrator selected under such rules. The arbitrator will have full power to subpoena and to fashion appropriate remedies, including to grant equitable, injunctive and/or declaratory relief. Neither punitive damages nor trebled or otherwise escalated damages shall be awarded. Judgment upon the award rendered in any arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof, or application may be made to such court for a judicial acceptance of the award and enforcement thereof as the law of such jurisdiction may require or allow. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
19.3) Notice; Process:A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail (“Notice”). Our address for Notice is: P.O. Box 373, Pine Valley, California 91962, Attn: Rick Chapo. The Notice must: (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or us must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by us prior to selection of an arbitrator, we will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by us in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $5,000.
19.4) Fees:If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, we will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $5,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Delaware, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (A) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (B) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (C) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
19.5) No Class Actions:YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this subsection is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 19is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 19will be null and void.
19.6) Modifications to this Arbitration Provision:Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, if we make any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice, then you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to our address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and us.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to the Athlete CRUSH Inc. App or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
If disputes arise between you and anyone other than us (including other users), we have no obligation to participate or assist either party.

- b) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
