  • your User Content; and
  • your violation of any law or regulation or the rights of any third party.

13. Dispute Resolution

Before filing a claim against Generation Transfer, you agree to try to work it out informally with us first. All formal disputes must be resolved through arbitration following the rules described below, unless you opt out of arbitration following the procedure described below. Claims can only be brought individually, and not as part of a class action.
13.1. Informal Resolution. Before filing a claim against Generation Transfer, you agree to try to resolve the dispute by first emailing_legal@generationtransfer.com with a description of your claim. We'll try to resolve the dispute informally by following up via email, phone or other methods. If we can't resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of our receipt of your first email, you or Generation Transfer may then bring a formal proceeding.
13.2. Arbitration Agreement. You and Generation Transfer agree to resolve any claims arising from or relating to the Services or this Agreement through final and binding arbitration and you and Generation Transfer expressly waive trial by jury, except as set forth below. Discovery and rights to appeal in arbitration are generally more limited than in a lawsuit, and other rights that you and we would have in court may not be available in arbitration._There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.
13.3. Arbitration Opt-Out. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing us [at_arbitration@generationtransfer.com] within thirty (30) days of the date that you first agree to this Agreement ("Opt-Out Period"). Your email must be sent from the email address you use for your Account, and must include your full name, residential address and a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out of arbitration pursuant to this Section 13.3, then Sections 13.2, 13.5, 13.6 and 13.7 of these Terms do not apply to you. This opt-out doesn't affect any other sections of the Terms, including without limitation Sections 13.8 (Judicial Forum For Disputes; Time For Filing), 13.9 (No Class Actions) and 14.2 (Controlling Law). If you have any questions about this process, please contact arbitration@generationtransfer.com.
13.4. Arbitration Time for Filing. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim. If applicable law prohibits a one year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
13.5. Arbitration Procedures. JAMS, Inc. ("JAMS") will administer the arbitration in accordance with the_JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures("JAMS Rules") in effect at the time of the dispute. You and Generation Transfer agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce, so the US Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply and govern the interpretation and enforcement of these provisions (despite the choice of law provision below). Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Delaware, in English, and shall be settled by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and costs), except that the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
13.6. Arbitration Fees. The JAMS Rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. We won't seek our attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
13.7. Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. Either you or Generation Transfer may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Delaware or any United States state where you live or work. Either you or Generation Transfer may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement or misappropriation (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described above.
13.8. Judicial Forum for Disputes; Time for Filing. If our agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, or if you opt out of arbitration pursuant to Section 13.3, you and Generation Transfer agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts of Delaware and you and Generation Transfer consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in those courts. Any claim not subject to arbitration must be commenced within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim. If applicable law prohibits a one year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.

14. Additional Terms

This Agreement is the whole agreement between us regarding your use of Generation Transfer. If we ever change it in a way that meaningfully reduces your rights, we'll give you notice and an opportunity to cancel. Also, if you're reading this in a language other than English, note that the English language version controls.
14.1. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Generation Transfer regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, and supersedes and replaces any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement creates no third party beneficiary rights.
14.2. Controlling Law. This Agreement and the Services shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
14.3. Waiver, Severability And Assignment. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement is not a waiver of our right to do so later. If any provision of this Agreement is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement, and any such attempt will be void. We may assign our rights under this Agreement to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
14.4. Modifications. We may modify this Agreement from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our site. If a modification meaningfully reduces your rights, we'll notify you (by, for example, sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice within the Services). The notice will designate a reasonable period after which the new terms will take effect. Modifications will never apply retroactively. By continuing to use or access the Services after any modifications come into effect, you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using the Services.
14.5. Translation. This Agreement was originally written in English (US). We may translate this Agreement into other languages. In the event of a conflict between a translated version and the English version, the English version will control.
