  1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, OUR PARENTS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, OWNERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER LEGAL THEORY A) WITH RESPECT TO THE WEBSITE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES (HOWEVER ARISING), OR B) FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF (IN THE AGGREGATE) OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR INJURY RESULTING FROM HACKING, TAMPERING OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF THE WEBSITE OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.

The limitation of liability reflects the allocation of risk between the parties. The limitations specified in this section will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed its essential purpose.

The Website is controlled from its facilities in the United States. We make no representations that the Website is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Website from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to, export and import regulations. You may not use the Website if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government.

  1. TERMINATION

We may terminate or suspend the Website, in whole or in part, with or without prior notice or liability, for any reason or for no reason. All provisions of this Agreement, which by their nature should survive termination, shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.

  1. DISPUTES

We are committed to User satisfaction, so if you have a problem or dispute, we will try to resolve your concerns. If we are unsuccessful, you may pursue Claims as explained and defined in this section. You agree to give us an opportunity to resolve any disputes or Claims relating to the Website, this Agreement, or our Privacy Policy (“Claims”) by sending an email to support@blockchains.com setting forth the details of your Claim(s). If we are unable to resolve your Claims within 60 days of receiving your email, you may seek relief through arbitration or in small Claims court, as set forth below.

Any and all Claims, except for those described in the following paragraph, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except you may assert Claims on an individual basis in small claims court if they qualify. This includes any Claims you assert against us, our parents, or our subsidiaries, which are beneficiaries of this arbitration agreement. This also includes any Claims that arose before you accepted these Terms of Use, regardless of whether prior versions of the Term of Use required arbitration.

Equitable remedies or injunctive relief (including appropriate restraining orders and injunctions) may be sought and obtained by us from a court of competent jurisdiction. However, all other disputes or Claims arising out of or under any of the terms of this Agreement shall be determined exclusively by mandatory, binding arbitration.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including statutory damages, attorneys’ fees and costs), and must follow and enforce this Agreement as a court would.

Arbitrations will be conducted by the JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS’ rules, except as provided in this section. If your total Claims seek less than $10,000, we will reimburse you for filing fees you pay to the JAMS and will pay arbitrator’s fees. You may choose to have an arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the state where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claims to Attention: Legal Department at Blockchains, LLC 610 Waltham Way, Sparks, Nevada 89434. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice based on the information we have available. The JAMS’ rules and filing instructions are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267.

Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.

  1. GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the state of Nevada, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state or federal court located in Reno, Nevada, for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, or if for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration.

  1. MISCELLANEOUS TERMS
