Upon a request by Clip, User agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold Clip and each of Clip’s Affiliates harmless from all liabilities, amounts, damages, claims, alleged claims, costs and expenses, including attorney’s fees, that arise from, involve, are related to or otherwise are connected with (i) User’s use or misuse of the Platform, the Site, the App and/or any of the other Services; (ii) any misrepresentation, fraud or other act or omission that is inconsistent with the requirements of the Platform, the Site, the App or any agreements entered into between Clip and User; (iii) any breach of or noncompliance with any provision of these Terms of Service; (iv) any violation of applicable law by User; (vi) any infringement or violation of any intellectual property rights by User (or by User’s actions or omissions, equipment or other property), whether Clip’s rights or those of any other Platform user or other third party; (vii) any User Content that User imports, uploads or otherwise provides to the Service; (viii) any User Offerings; (ix) any use or reliance of, or any claims in anyway related to, any Provided Content or User Content, and (x) any claims from any third parties that may be impacted by, arise from or relate to your use of the Services (including any data or information obtained via the Services), whether authorized or unauthorized. Clip reserves the right, at Clip’s own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by User, in which event User will cooperate with Clip in asserting any available defenses.
14. International Use.
Although the Platform, the Site and/or the App and/or other Services may be accessible worldwide, Clip makes no representation that (i) use of the Platform, the Site, the App or any other Services are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and (ii) use of the Platform, the Site, the App, or any other Services, or content made available via the Services, are compliant with foreign law. Users who choose to access the Platform, the Site, the App or other Services from other locations do so on User’s own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws and requirements. Any offer for any product, service, and/or information made in connection with the Platform, the Site, the App or with any of the other Services is void where prohibited.
15. Law; Venue.
User agrees that the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Service and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between User and Clip, except as otherwise stated in these Terms of Service. All claims under these Terms of Service or related to User’s relationship with the Platform, the Site, the App or the other Services shall be brought in San Francisco, California.
16.1 Agreement to Arbitrate. This Section is referred to as the “Arbitration Agreement.” User agrees that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between User and Clip, whether arising out of or relating to this Agreement or in connection with Users use of the Platform or other Services, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that User may assert individual claims in small claims court, if User’s claims qualify. User agrees that, by agreeing to this Agreement, User and Clip are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. User’s rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Arbitration Agreement shall not preclude either party from pursuing a court action for the sole purpose of obtaining a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction in circumstances in which such relief is appropriate; provided that any other relief shall be pursued through an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
16.2 Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. User and Clip agree that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both User and Clip agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s).
16.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. Clip is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most concerns can be resolved quickly and to the participant’s satisfaction by emailing Clip’s support team at email@example.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Clip should be sent to Clip at firstname.lastname@example.org Attn: Legal (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Clip and User do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, User or Clip may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Clip or User shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which User or Clip is entitled.
16.4 Arbitration Procedures. Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under this Agreement and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. Unless Clip and User agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If User’s claim is for $10,000 or less, Clip agrees that User may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If User’s claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
16.5 Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
16.6 Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
16.7 Severability. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement other than clause 16.2 above is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of clause 16.2 is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of this Agreement will continue to apply.
17. Entire Agreement.

19.1 Assignment. User may not assign User’s rights and obligations under these Terms of Service to any third party, and any purported attempt to do so shall be null and void. Clip may freely assign Clip’s rights and obligations under these Terms of Service and transfer, assign or novate these Terms of Service.
19.2 Force Majeure. In addition to any excuse provided by applicable law or under this Agreement, Clip shall be excused from liability for non-delivery or delay in delivery of products and services available through the Platform, the Site or the App arising from any event beyond Clip’s reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable by either party, including but not limited to, labor disturbance, war, fire, accident, adverse weather, inability to secure transportation, governmental act or regulation, and other causes or events beyond Clip’s reasonable control, whether or not similar to those which are enumerated above.
19.3 Enforceability; Severability. If any part of these Terms of Service is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
19.4 No Waiver. Any failure by Clip to enforce or exercise any provision of these Terms of Service or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision or a waiver of Clip’s right to enforce or exercise any such provision of these Terms of Service in the future.
19.5 Intended Beneficiaries. These Terms of Service are strictly between Clip and User. There are no intended third party beneficiaries of these Terms of Service.
19.6 Government Sales. If User is a branch or agency of the United States Government or a contractor thereto, the following provision applies. As defined in FAR section 2.101, the Site and Services and related documentation are “commercial items” and according to DFAR section 252.227-7014(a)(1) and (5) are deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation.” Consistent with DFAR section 227.7202 and FAR section 12.212, any use modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or disclosure of such commercial software or commercial software documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by the terms of these Terms of Service and will be prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms of these Terms of Service.
