GOVERNING LAW; ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH FUNTASTIC AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM FUNTASTIC.

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without resort to any conflict of law provisions. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or the Platform, you and Funtastic agree to consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing your mutual interests, try to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If the parties do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then either of the parties may, by notice to the other demand mediation under the mediation rules of the JAMS/Endispute (“JAMS”) in Los Angeles, California. Both you and Funtastic both give up the right to litigate disputes and may not proceed to arbitration without first trying meditation, but you and Funtastic are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and Funtastic will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.

If settlement is not reached within 60 days after service of a written demand for mediation, any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the rules of JAMS before a single arbitrator in Los Angeles, California. The language of all proceedings and filings will be English. The arbitrator will render a written opinion including findings of fact and law and the award and/or determination of the arbitrator will be binding on the parties, and their respective administrators and assigns, and will not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be otherwise assessed and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys’ fees and expenses by the arbitrator. It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings will be concluded within 90 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit only if failure to do so would unduly prejudice the rights of the parties. Failure to adhere to this time limit will not constitute a basis for challenging the award. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange will be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, carried out expeditiously.

For any disputes that are not handled by arbitration, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms or the use of the Platform.

 

Compliance with Laws

You assume all knowledge of applicable law and you are responsible for compliance with any such laws. You may not use our Platform in any way that violates applicable state, federal, or international laws, regulations, relevant guidance, or other government requirements.

 

Changes to These Terms

Modifications will become effective immediately upon being posted to our Platform, without further notice to you. Your continued use of any of our Platform after such modifications are posted constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of such modifications, and you may not amend these Terms.

 

Other Terms

If any provision of these Terms is determined by a court of law to be unlawful, void or unenforceable for any reason, the other provisions (and any partially-enforceable provision) shall not be affected thereby and shall remain valid and enforceable to the maximum possible extent, and the invalid provision will be modified as necessary to make it valid and enforceable while as closely as possible reflecting the original intentions of Funtastic.

You agree that these Terms and any other agreements referenced herein may be assigned by us, in our sole discretion, to a third party in the event of a merger or acquisition or otherwise. These Terms shall apply in addition to, and shall not be superseded by, any other written agreement between us in relation to your participation as a contributor to our Platform.

You agree and understand that these Terms together with any other applicable click-through agreements you may have entered into regarding our Platform, constitutes the entire agreement between you and Funtastic regarding your use of the Platform, and that any other prior agreements between you and Funtastic are superseded by these Terms.

Any failure by Funtastic to exercise its rights under these Terms or to enforce the terms hereof will not constitute a waiver of those rights. 
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of our Platform or relating to these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
