Dispute Resolution.

Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with Company and affects your rights.  It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. 

All claims and disputes in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by the Company that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. 

Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. 

This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.

Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. 

Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. 

A Notice to the Company should be sent to: info.bandiki@gmail.com.

After the Notice is received, you and the Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. 

If you and the Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. 

The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award to which either party is entitled.

Arbitration Rules. 

Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association, an established alternative dispute resolution provider that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. 

If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. 

The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms.  The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. 

The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. 

Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. 

For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. 

Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise.  If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings.

Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  If the arbitrator grants you an award that is greater than the last settlement offer that the Company made to you prior to the initiation of arbitration, the Company will pay you the greater of the award or $2,500.00. 

Each party shall bear its own costs and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.

Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. 

If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration.  The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.

Time Limits. 

If you or the Company pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.

Authority of Arbitrator. 

If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities of you and the Company, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. 

The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. 

The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and the Terms. 

The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. 

The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. 

The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and the Company.

Waiver of Jury Trial. 

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. 

Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less expensive than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. 

In the event any litigation should arise between you and the Company in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND THE COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.

Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. 

All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other customer or user.

Confidentiality. 

All aspects of the arbitration proceeding shall be strictly confidential. 

The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law.  This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.

Severability. 

If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

Right to Waive. 

Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. 

Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.

Survival of Agreement. 

This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Company.

Small Claims Court. 

Nonetheless the foregoing, either you or the Company may bring an individual action in small claims court.

Emergency Equitable Relief. 

Anyhow the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration.  A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.

Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.

In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Netherlands County, California, for such purposes.

The Site may be subject to U.S. export control laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries.

  • The rules of our Online Community Forum are to ensure that everyone can participate in the public conversation without fear. Please familiarize yourself with the following tips and rules, which will enable us to help one another, and help our community grow:

  • Be Nice and Respect Each Other. We are all unique, so we might not always share the same opinion, or always agree with one another. Be polite to fellow members and treat other members well. Racism, hate, violence, explicit sex/pornography, or any form of abuse will not be tolerated.

  • You may not threaten any person or a group of people on our forum. We strongly denounce and prohibit the glorification of violence.

  • Child sexual exploitation is strictly prohibited.

  • Only Share Relevant Discussions/Questions Under Relevant Categories. For example; if you want to have a discussion about Rock Music, discuss it under the Rock Music category. This will make it easier for like-minded people to engage in your post.

  • You may not be involved in harassing anyone, or encourage other users to do so, or to wish or hope that someone experiences physical harm.

  • You may not promote or encourage suicide or self-harm.

  • Do Not Repeat Questions. If you want to ask a question, always use the forum search first (next to your profile). Chances are that someone else might have asked your question already. Our moderators might remove any duplicated questions.

  • You may not make use of our forum for any unlawful purpose or illegal activities. This includes the selling, buying, or facilitating of transactions in illegal goods or services.

  • Make Use of Easy Description Titles. By stating directly what you mean in your title, can make it easier for people to see or find your post. For example; “How Do I Increase My Piano Skills?” would be better than; “Please Help Me!”.

  • You may not encourage violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.

  • Short Posts Are Better Than Long Posts. Keeping posts short makes it easy to find answers, and makes the post relevant for more people.

  • You are not allowed to share other people's private information (such as home phone number and address) without their permission.

  • Include The Use of Hashtags to make your topics easier to follow.

  • You may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent.

  • You may not impersonate individuals, groups, or organizations in a manner that is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others.

  • Acknowledge Your Fellow Member’s Help By Marking It With “Best Answer”.

  • You may not threaten or promote terrorism or violent extremism.

  • You may not share violent or adult content in your profile, in a post or header images. Any material that contains sexual violence and/or assault is strongly not allowed. 

  • You may not create and promote manipulated media that are likely to cause harm.

  • Violation of others’ intellectual property rights, copyright and trademark are not allowed.

  • You may not share any content on or through our platform that includes third-party advertising without our prior consent.

  • You may not use our forum for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections.

  • If you have violated any of these terms, we may suspend or terminate your account. We also have the right to terminate your account at any time for no reason, including, but not limited to, if we believe you create risk or possible legal exposure for us, or if your account should be removed due to unlawful conduct or inactivity. If we proceed with suspending your account, we will notify you by the email address associated with your account.

  • We reserve the right to disclose your personal data if we believe that it is necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to protect the safety or integrity of our platform, including to help prevent spam, abuse, or malicious actors on our platform.

  • Please note that nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to provide your personal data.

 

You are responsible for your posts and other information that you provide on our platform. We will not take any responsibility should any legal consequences arise from it.
