Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. Section 230 (d) as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. Information identifying current providers of such protection is available at http://www.staysafeonline.org.
(a) U.S. Site. The Services are controlled and operated by the Company from within the United States of America, and are intended for use only by residents of the United States. The Company makes no representations or warranties that the content or materials of the Services are appropriate or lawful in any foreign countries, or that any items or applications offered for sale or download through links on the Services will be available outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You may not use or export or re-export any content downloaded from the Services or any copy or adaptation of such content, in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including without limitation United States export laws and regulations.
(b) Governing law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as it is applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within such state, without regard to conflict of law principles.
(c) Initial Dispute Resolution
We are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
(d) Binding Arbitration Agreement
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to THE PARAGRAPH above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the AAA, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
The AAA’s rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1.800.778.7879. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of filing fees should be submitted to AAA along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary FILING fees directly to AAA. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
(e) Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
(F) 30 Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: Penn Interactive Ventures, LLC., 825 Berkshire Blvd. Wyomissing, PA 19610 Attn: General Counsel. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of creation of an account via the Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
(G) Exception - Small Claims Court Claims.
Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
(h) Exclusive Venue for Litigation
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in the federal district court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, or, if federal subject matter jurisdiction is lacking, then in the state courts located in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The parties expressly hereby consent to exclusive jurisdiction in the aforesaid courts for any litigation, hereby also consent to personal jurisdiction in said courts for any litigation and waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction said courts over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) this Agreement or the Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of the Company in connection with this Agreement or the Services.
(J) One Year Time Limit. You agree to commence any arbitration proceeding (or court action if applicable) with respect to this Agreement within one year after the claim arises. You agree that a proceeding commenced after this date is barred.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions shall not be affected. When used in this Agreement, the term "including" shall be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation."
The failure of the Company and its Affiliated Parties to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such term or limit that party's right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim of cause of action arising from or relating to use of the Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred. The "Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability" provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of the Company and its Affiliated Parties as defined herein, and each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
