You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

 

Note that these Terms contain a mandatory arbitration provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis and limits the remedies available to you in the event of certain disputes. Please review the arbitration agreement carefully. By accepting these Terms, you expressly acknowledge that you have read and understand the arbitration agreement.

 

Arbitration Agreement

 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH BTC AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

 

Binding Arbitration

Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and BTC agree: (a) to waive your and BTC’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, the Services, or the Content resolved in a court; and (b) to waive your and BTC’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and BTC agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).

 

No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions

You and BTC agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, or the Content is personal to you and BTC and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and BTC agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and BTC agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.

 

Federal Arbitration Act

You and BTC agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this arbitration agreement shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

 

Notice: Informal Dispute Resolution

You and BTC agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within 30 days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to BTC shall be sent to contact@btcmedia.org. Your notice must include: (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your BTC registration and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted; (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with these Terms and will include: (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute; (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and BTC cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within 30 days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or BTC may, as appropriate and in accordance with this arbitration agreement, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for above, file a claim in court.

 

Process

Except for Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and BTC agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or BTC within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and BTC will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and BTC agree that: (a) any arbitration will occur in Davidson County, Tennessee; (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference; and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Tennessee and the United States, respectively, sitting in Davidson County, Tennessee, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.

 

Authority of Arbitrator

As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have: (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable; and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

 

Severability

The Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either: (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the Rules of JAMS; or (b) waive your opportunity to read the Rules of JAMS and any claim that the Rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

 

 

Opt-Out Right

You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Dispute Resolution section by writing to: contact@btcmedia.org. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with the provisions regarding governing law and venue as described in this Agreement.

 

 

 

 

 

Additional Terms & Conditions of Use Specific to Some BTC Websites

 

All general BTC Terms and Conditions of Use (above) as well as our Privacy Policy apply to all BTC Websites, so be sure you have read and understand these terms and policy because your use of any BTC Website binds you to our terms as described above, and it’s important you are informed about the use of your data.

Merchant agrees to deliver its company logo and related information by the deadlines provided in order to be included in promotional initiatives.

Standards

Merchant represents and warrants to BTC that any landing page and/or destination site linked to or referred to from Merchant Listing (“Merchant’s Site”), or any collateral materials, promotional materials, publicity or information materials produced by Merchant relative to its Bitcoin Black Friday Listing(s) will (a) be decent, honest and truthful, (b) comply with the provisions of any applicable law, regulation or code of practice, (c) not be libelous or obscene, (d) not infringe the rights of any person (including any person's intellectual property rights); (e) not be prejudicial to the image or reputation of BTC; (f) be free from viruses, adware, malware, and/or bit torrents, (g) not cause an adverse effect on the operation of our Website, and (h) have a conspicuous privacy policy which complies with all applicable data protection and privacy laws, regulations and codes of practice.

Trademarks/Approvals

Merchant hereby grants BTC permission to use its trademarks solely in the performance of the Agreement. This includes use of the trademarks in Listing as well as creative materials, graphics, artwork, copy or press releases not specifically defined herein.

 Merchant is responsible for delivery of all promotional materials to BTC in a timely manner in accordance with schedules provided by BTC. BTC will make every good faith effort to timely receive and process materials but BTC accepts no responsibility for any interruption or delays in promotional Listings nor any loss or damage to Merchant.                                                          

Reproduction of Merchant Materials

 BTC shall make all good faith efforts to reproduce Merchant materials as needed for the Website according to best reasonable commercial practice industry standards.

If the alternative is not accepted, the Merchant Listing will be cancelled, and the Merchant shall be entitled to an equivalent promotional opportunity via BTC creative services. This shall be the Merchant's sole remedy for any failure to execute the Merchant listing.

Merchant Responsibility for Losses

 Merchant accepts full and sole responsibility for tangible and intangible losses resulting from Merchant Listing, unless loss results from breach of contract on part of BTC that has not been cured within 30 days of notice by Merchant of potential breach.
