12. RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES.

If a dispute arises between you and SpinSpotter, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and SpinSpotter agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Toolbar License or our services (a "Claim") in accordance with one of the paragraphs below or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by going to the "Comments or Questions" help page http://spinspotter.com/feedback. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation; however, the ultimate choice of resolution procedure shall be at SpinSpotter’s discretion.

Law and Forum for Disputes - This Toolbar License shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against SpinSpotter must be resolved by a court located in Santa Clara County, California, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

Arbitration Option - For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Improperly Filed Claims - All claims must be resolved in accordance with this Resolution of Disputes Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to the Resolution of Disputes Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to the Resolution of Disputes Section, SpinSpotter may recover attorneys' fees and costs, provided that SpinSpotter has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

13. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.

If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of this Toolbar License to be illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, such portion(s) shall be limited or excluded from this Toolbar License to the minimum extent required so that the remainder of the affected provision(s) and the other provisions of this Toolbar License will continue in full force and effect. Sections 2-7, 10, 12, and 13 of this Toolbar License will survive any termination of this Toolbar License. This Toolbar License constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede and replace all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. To the extent that there is a conflict between the terms of this Toolbar License and the terms of the SpinSpotter Privacy Policy or SpinSpotter Terms of Service, this Toolbar License shall have precedence as to the subject matter of this Toolbar License. Except as otherwise provided in Section 9, any modifications of this Toolbar License must be in writing and agreed to by both parties. Any waiver of any provision of these Toolbar License will be effective only if in writing and signed by SpinSpotter.

6. COPYRIGHT POLICY

It is our policy to terminate membership privileges of any SpinSpotter Member who repeatedly infringes copyright upon prompt notification to us by the copyright owner or the copyright owner's legal agent. Without limiting the foregoing, if you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our designated copyright agent (“Copyright Agent”) with the following information: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Services; (iv) your address, telephone number, and email address; (v) a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
Once proper bona fide infringement notification is received by the Copyright Agent, it is SpinSpotter’s policy: (i) to remove or disable access to the infringing Content; (ii) to notify the Content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the Content; and (iii) that repeat offenders will have the infringing Content removed from the system and that SpinSpotter will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the service.

The procedure to supply a counter-notice to the Copyright Agent is as follows: if the Content provider, member or user believes that the Content that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the Content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such Content from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, member or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent listed below: (i) a physical or electronic signature of the Content provider, member or user; (ii) identification of the Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the Content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (iii) a statement that the Content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Content; (iii) a statement that the Content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Content; and (iv) content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or if the Content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which SpinSpotter is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, SpinSpotter may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at SpinSpotter’s discretion.
