Summary: Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and we make no warranties of any kind with respect to our Platform.

7.1 Warranty Disclaimer. Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and on an “as available” basis. We disclaim all warranties and conditions of any kind, including but not limited to statutory warranties, and the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We also disclaim any warranties regarding (a) the reliability, timeliness, accuracy, and performance of our Platform, (b) any information, advice, services, or goods obtained through or advertised on our Platform or by us, as well as for any information or advice received through any links to other websites or resources provided through our Platform, (c) the results that may be obtained from the Platform, and (d) the correction of any errors in the Platform, (e) any material or data obtained through the use of our Platform, and (f) dealings with or as the result of the presence of marketing partners or other third parties on or located through our Platform.

7.2 Limitation of Liability. You agree that in no event shall any Dokusa Parties be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if any Dokusa Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages) arising out of or in connection with (a) our Platform or this Agreement or the inability to use our Platform (however arising, including our negligence), (b) statements or conduct of or transactions with any member or third party on the Platform, (c) your use of our Platform or transportation to or from Dokusa events, attendance at Dokusa events, participation in or exclusion from Dokusa groups or Dokusa events and the actions of you or others at Dokusa events, or (d) any other matter relating to the Platform. The limitations set forth above in this Section 8 will not limit or exclude liability for our gross negligence, fraud, or intentional, malicious, or reckless misconduct.

8. Dispute Resolution

Summary: If you have a dispute with Dokusa, you agree to try to work it out directly with us first. If we can’t work it out, with limited exceptions, you must submit any dispute with us to a neutral arbitrator instead of taking the claim to a court of law. Claims can only be brought individually, and not as part of a class action. Dokusa has no obligation to get involved with any disputes you have with other members, although we may try to facilitate a resolution.

8.1 Informal Resolution. Before making any claim, you and Dokusa agree to try to resolve any disputes through good faith discussions. We use the term “claim” in this Section 9 to mean any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of our Platform or this Agreement, including your participation in Dokusa events. You or Dokusa may initiate this process by sending written notice according to Section 10.1 describing the dispute and your proposed resolution. In the event that we cannot resolve the issue within 30 business days of receipt of the initial notice, you or Dokusa may bring a claim in accordance with Section 8.2.

8.2 Arbitration Agreement. Except as set forth in Section 9.5, you agree to submit any claim to JAMS, Inc., or its successor, (“JAMS”) for final and binding arbitration. In arbitration certain rights that you or we would have in court may not be available, such as discovery or appeal. You and Dokusa are each expressly waiving any right to trial by judge or jury in a court of law. This agreement to arbitrate shall apply regardless of whether the claim arises during or after any termination of this Agreement or your relationship with Dokusa.

8.3 Arbitration Time for Filing. Any claim subject to arbitration must be filed within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.

8.4 Arbitration Procedures. Either party may commence arbitration by filing a written demand for arbitration with JAMS, with a copy to the other party according to the notice procedures in Section 10.1. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures and any other applicable rules that JAMS requires (“JAMS Rules”) in effect as of the demand for arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law govern the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. Any arbitration hearings will take place in New York County, New York or elsewhere as required by JAMS Rules. Your responsibility to pay any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the JAMS Rules. The parties will cooperate with JAMS and each other in scheduling the arbitration proceedings, and in selecting one arbitrator from the appropriate JAMS list with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and contract disputes. The arbitrator shall follow this Agreement and, to the extent permitted by JAMS Rules, can award costs, fees and expenses, including attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party, except that the arbitrator shall not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

8.5 Exceptions. You or Dokusa may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York County, New York or any U.S. county where you live or work. You or Dokusa may seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in New York County, New York as necessary to protect the intellectual property rights of you or Dokusa pending the completion of arbitration. Dokusa may take action in court or arbitration to collect any fees or recover damages for, or to seek injunctive relief relating to, Platform operations, or unauthorized use of our Platform or intellectual property. Nothing in this Section 8 shall diminish Dokusa’s right to modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to our Platform under Section 2.2.

8.6 Arbitration Opt Out. You may decline to resolve disputes through arbitration by emailing us at legal@dokusa.com within 30 days of the date you first agree to this Agreement. Your email must include your full name, residential address, the email address registered to your Dokusa account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out according to this process, then Sections 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 of this Agreement do not apply to you. This opt-out does not affect any other sections of this Agreement, such as Sections 8.5 (Exceptions), 8.7 (Class Action Waiver), 10.4 (Governing Law), 10.5 (Judicial Forum), and 10.6 (Time for Filing).

8.7 Class Action Waiver. You agree to resolve disputes with Dokusa on an individual basis. You agree not to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated or representative action. You are expressly waiving any right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, private attorney general actions and consolidation with other arbitrations.

9. Intellectual Property

Summary: You agree not to use our intellectual property without our prior consent. Also, don’t infringe on anyone else’s intellectual property. If you believe your intellectual property is being infringed somewhere on the Dokusa Platform, please contact us at legal@dokusa.com.

9.1 Intellectual Property of Dokusa. Dokusa trademarks, logos, service marks, and service names are the intellectual property of Dokusa. Our Platform, including our material on the Platform, are also our or our licensors’ intellectual property. Except as otherwise permitted by law, you agree not to use our intellectual property without our prior written consent.

9.2 Intellectual Property of Others. Dokusa respects the intellectual property of others, and we expect our members to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, remove or disable access to material that infringes on the intellectual property rights of others. We may also restrict or terminate access to our Platform to those who we believe to be repeat infringers. If you believe your intellectual property rights have been violated, please contact us at legal@dokusa.com.

10. Other Stuff

Summary: This section contains terms we have added for miscellaneous purposes. Please continue to read this section carefully.

10.1 Notices.

Any notice to you shall be given to the most current email address in your account.

10.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Dokusa, superseding any prior agreements between you and Dokusa on such subject matter.

A member of the Dokusa Platform is not Dokusa’s representative or agent, and may not enter into an agreement on Dokusa’s behalf.

10.4 Governing Law. This Agreement and the relationship between you and Dokusa shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, except as set forth in Section 8.

10.5 Judicial Forum. If our agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, or if you opt out of arbitration pursuant to Section 8.6, you and Dokusa agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in New York County, New York, and you and Dokusa agree to venue and personal jurisdiction in those courts.

10.6 Time for Filing. Any claim not subject to arbitration must be commenced within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.

10.7 Assignment. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with Dokusa’s prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us to any affiliate or subsidiary, or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of Dokusa’s assets, or similar transaction.

10.8 No Waiver. A party’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision and does not waive any right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

10.9 Severance. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, you and Dokusa nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
