11 ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
This Section 11 includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt out procedure described below.
11.2 Informal Process First.
You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Core, you will first contact Core and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.
11.3 Arbitration Agreement.
After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining Claim relating in any way to your use of Core’s services and/or products, including the Service, or relating in any way to the communications between you and Core or any other user of the Service, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”) applies equally to you and Core. However, this Arbitration Agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by Core for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Service that is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms of Service or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases. If you are an individual you may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within thirty (30) days of the first date you access or use this Service by following the procedure described below.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Core are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision will survive any termination of these Terms of Service.
If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Core, Inc., Attn: Core Mobile, Inc., 1733 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Suite C, Venice CA 90291 The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules including, if you are an individual, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
The number of arbitrators will be one. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language and California law will apply. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If you are an individual and have not accessed or used the Service on behalf of an entity, we will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, and we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to the “Class Action Waiver” section below.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Core and you are an individual, you may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by sending an email to email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the first date you access or use the Service.
11.4 CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.
If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement, if otherwise effective, will be null and void. 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 that party's individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Core each waive any right to a jury trial.
12 COPYRIGHT COMPLAINTS

Core will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement.

If you believe that User Content that has been removed from the Service is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in User Content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to our copyright agent using the contact information set forth above:

- A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
- Your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in New York and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Core copyright agent, Core may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing such person that it may reinstate the removed content in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider or user, the removed content may (in Core’s discretion) be reinstated on the Service in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice.
We may send you, in electronic form, information about the Service, additional information, and information the law requires us to provide. We may provide required information to you by email at the address you specified when you signed up for the Service or by access to a website that we identify. Notices emailed to you will be deemed given and received when the email is sent. If you do not consent to receive notices electronically, you must stop using the Service. You may provide legal notice to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a duplicate copy sent via registered mail, return receipt requested, to the following address: Core, Attn: 1733 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Suite C, Venice CA 90291 Any such notice, in either case, must specifically reference that it is a notice given under these Terms.
14.1 Severability; Entire Agreement.
These Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by relevant law. If a court holds that we cannot enforce a part of these Terms as written, you and we will replace those terms with similar terms to the extent enforceable under the relevant law, but the rest of these Terms will remain in effect. This is the entire contract between you and us regarding the Service. It supersedes any prior contract or oral or written statements regarding your use of the Service.
14.2 Governing Law
These Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, provided that the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration Agreement. Unless you and Core agree otherwise, in the event that the Arbitration Agreement is found not to apply to you or a particular Claim (except for small-claims court actions), either as a result of your decision to opt out of the Arbitration Agreement or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that the Claim will be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in California. You and Core agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within California for the purposes of litigating such Claims. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
14.3 Assignment and transfer
We may assign, transfer, or otherwise dispose our rights and obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time without notice. You may not assign these Terms or transfer any rights to use the Service.
14.4 Independent Contractors; No third-party beneficiaries
Core and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors. These Terms are solely for your and our benefit. It is not for the benefit of any other person, except for permitted successors.
You must bring any claim related to these Terms or the Service within one year of the date you could first bring the claim, unless your local law requires a longer time to file claims. If it is not filed in time, the claim is permanently barred.
The failure of you or Core to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any of the provisions of these Terms or to exercise any rights or remedies under these Terms will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of your right or Core’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the same will remain in full force and effect.
