You are prohibited from doing any act that has the effect of undermining the integrity of our reputation or our users’ reputations, our computer systems and network infrastructure, the Site or the method by which we provide our services to our users, including:
By using the Site, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless The Trust, its affiliates, licensors and service providers, and its and their respective Trustees, officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors and assigns (collectively the “The Trust Parties”) from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses or fees (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of these Terms or your use of the Site, including, but not limited to, any use of our Content, information and services other than as expressly authorized in these Terms.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TRUST OR ANY OF THE OTHER THE TRUST PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME OR PROFITS, LOSS OF USE OR DATA, LOSS OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE OF ASSETS OR SECURITIES, OR DAMAGES FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE ACCESS OR USE OF THE SITE OR CONTENT OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THESE TERMS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY OR RESULTING FROM RELIANCE BY ANY USER ON ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE TRUST, OR FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELETIONS OF FILES OR EMAILS, ERRORS, DEFECTS, BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, WHETHER OR NOT RESULTING FROM ACTS OF GOD, COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO THE TRUST’S RECORDS, PROGRAMS OR SYSTEMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SIMPLE NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE).
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH THE TRUST AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
All matters relating to the Site and these Terms and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California in the United States without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and The Trust agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within San Francisco County, California for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THESE TERMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT. YOU AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND THE TRUST AND THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AND THE TRUST ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages).
If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claims court action, you must first send to The Trust, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (a “Notice”). The Notice must be addressed to: Justin Jacobs Jr. Charitable Trust, Attn: Cynthia R. Rowland, 235 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94104 (the “Notice Address”). A Notice, whether sent by you or The Trust, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the dispute, claim or controversy; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought including a detailed explanation of how the amount of any monetary relief was calculated (the “Demand”). If The Trust and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or The Trust may commence an arbitration proceeding or, if applicable, file a claim in small claims court.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision, this arbitration provision shall govern. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision. The arbitrator must strictly construe and apply these Terms as written and must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
YOU AND THE TRUST 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 The Trust agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void (for removal of doubt, the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void only if this specific provision regarding the requirement that claims be brought only in your or The Trust’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, is deemed unenforceable. If any other clause or provision of this arbitration provision is found to be unenforceable, then pursuant to Section 12 below, that specific clause or provision shall be struck, and the remainder of this arbitration provision shall be enforced). 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.
Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use the Site, at any time and for any or no reason, and you acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability or obligation to you in such event, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms: all defined terms and Sections 4 through 13.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement relating to your access to and use of the Site. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and privileges under these Terms (including any information provided by you to us), without your consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or to an affiliate, or in connection with a change in control. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
