UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE TOTAL AGGREGATE AMOUNT THAT THE IDEAMIX INDEMNIFIED PARTIES ARE LIABLE TO YOU EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) THE TOTAL AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID TO IDEAMIX BY YOU DURING THE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE ACT, OMISSION OR OCCURRENCE GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY OR (B) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100).

14. International Users.
The Services are based in the United States. Ideamix makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Services from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
15. Dispute Resolution.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It requires you to arbitrate most disputes with Ideamix and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
15.1. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute between you and us relating in any way to the Services, our advertising or marketing practices, or this Agreement, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (a) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (b) you or Ideamix may seek equitable relief in court for infringement, misappropriation or other violation of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH IDEAMIX, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST IDEAMIX ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING COVERED CLAIMS AGAINST IDEAMIX ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
15.2. Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim addressed to Ideamix at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any dispute shall be submitted to confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS and conducted pursuant to its Streamlined Rules, including its rules governing selection of an arbitrator and exchange of information and documents.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision of the Streamlined Rules, any dispute is subject to the applicable statute of limitations under New York law. The arbitrator will have the authority to decide whether any dispute is barred by the statute of limitations, and, if so, to dismiss the arbitration on that basis. The arbitrator shall have the authority to determine the extent of his/her authority under this Agreement. No discovery shall be had or conducted in any arbitration commenced hereunder except pursuant to the provisions of the Streamlined Rules.
15.3. Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Ideamix. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other proceedings or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. 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 arbitral forum's rules, and this Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which any award (or decision not to render an award) is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator shall follow the applicable law. 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 us.
15.4. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND IDEAMIX HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PERMITTED HEREIN) AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.
You and Ideamix are instead electing that all covered claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 15.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
15.5. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE FOR CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the event that this Section 15.5 is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute, neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitration of such claim or dispute and instead the applicable claim or dispute shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 16.4.
15.6. 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending a timely written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: , within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any), the email address you used to set up your account (if you have one), and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have with us, or may enter into in the future with us. If you do not provide Ideamix with a timely notice of your decision to opt out, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any dispute except as expressly set forth in Section 15.1
15.7. Severability. Subject to Section 15.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
15.8. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination or expiration of the Agreement or your relationship with Ideamix.
15.9. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Ideamix makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) of which you had already provided notice to Ideamix.
16. General Provisions.
16.1. Electronic Communications. The communications between you and Ideamix use electronic means, whether you visit the Services or send Ideamix e-mails, or whether Ideamix posts notices on the Services or communicates with you via e-mail.

This Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without Ideamix’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Ideamix may freely assign or transfer this Agreement without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
16.3. Force Majeure. Ideamix shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
16.4. Exclusive Venue. To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in a court, both you and Ideamix agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the state courts in New York, New York or federal courts located in the Southern District of New York.
16.5. Governing Law. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of NEW YORK, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any conflict of law or other principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
16.6. Notice. Any notices or other communications provided by Ideamix under this Agreement, including those regarding modifications to this Agreement, will be given by Ideamix via e-mail or provided through the Services. Where Ideamix requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Ideamix with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Ideamix is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by this Agreement, Ideamix’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to Ideamix at the following address: email@example.com.
For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted, and for notices made through the Services, the date of access of the Services with such notice will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
16.7. Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
16.8. Severability. Subject to Section 15.5, if any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
16.9. Export Control. You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Services except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Services, and any other applicable laws. In particular, but without limitation, the Services may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries, or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Denied Person's List or Entity List. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (x) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country and (y) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You also will not use the Services for any purpose prohibited by U.S. law.
16.10. Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
