20 ELECTRONIC CONTRACTING AND NOTICE

Your affirmative act of using this Site and/or registering for the Site or the Services constitutes your electronic signature to the Terms of Use and your consent to enter into agreements with us electronically.

21  ENTIRE AGREEMENT

This agreement and any supplemental terms, policies, rules and guidelines posted on the Site, including the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of the Terms of Use is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of Krossover to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

23 DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Agreement to Arbitrate

If a Dispute (as defined below) of any kind arises, we want to understand and address your concerns quickly and to your satisfaction. Please contact us in the event of any Dispute. If we cannot resolve your concerns, we agree to an informal and inexpensive dispute resolution process requiring individual arbitration. For the purpose of this Agreement “Disputes” include any claim, controversy, or dispute (whether involving contract, tort, equitable, statutory, or any other legal theory) between you and Krossover including but not limited to any claims relating in any way to this Agreement (including its breach, termination, or interpretation), any other aspect of our relationship, Krossover advertising, and any use of Krossover software or services. “Disputes” also include any claims that arose before this Agreement and that may arise after termination of this Agreement.

You and Krossover agree to arbitrate all Disputes. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced. All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) or JAMS (www.jamsadr.org) according to this provision and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. Unless otherwise required by law, any arbitration hearing will occur in New York, New York, U.S.A. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim where you are seeking relief, Krossover will not seek to have you pay its attorney’s fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Krossover also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of Krossover services.

Judicial Forum for Disputes.

In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply, you and Krossover agree that any Dispute will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of New York County, New York, and both parties consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.

No Class Actions.

ALL DISPUTES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE RESOLVED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION OR REPRESNTATIVE ACTION AGAINST US.

24 ASSIGNMENT

We may assign this contract at any time to any parent, subsidiary, or any affiliated company, or as part of the sale to, merger with, or other transfer of our company to another entity. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense the Terms of Use to anyone else and any attempt to do so shall be null and void.

25 ELIGIBILITY

You must be 18 years of age or older, or the legal age to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction if that age is greater than 18 years of age, to register with us or use the Site and the Services. If you are under the age of 18 or the applicable legal age in your jurisdiction, you can use the Site or Services only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of, your parent or guardian who has agreed to the Terms of Use. If you do not qualify under these terms, do not use the Site or Services. Membership in the Services is void where prohibited by applicable law, and the right to access the Site is revoked in such jurisdictions. By using the Site and/or the Services, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into the Terms of Use and to abide by all of the terms and conditions set forth herein.
