About This Agreement
Modifying this Agreement
We may modify this Agreement, for example, to reflect changes to our Service or for legal, regulatory, or security reasons. If you do not agree to the modified terms, you should remove any Content you have uploaded and discontinue your use of the Service.
Continuation of this Agreement
If your use of the Service ends, the following terms of this Agreement will continue to apply to you: “Other Legal Terms”, “About This Agreement”, and the licenses granted by you will continue as described under “Duration of License”.
If it turns out that a particular term of this Agreement is not enforceable for any reason, this will not affect any other terms.
If you fail to comply with this Agreement and we do not take immediate action, this does not mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as the right to take action in the future).
In these terms, “include” or “including” means “including but not limited to,” and any examples we give are for illustrative purposes.
Governing Law and Arbitration
All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Service will be governed by Georgia law, except Georgia’s conflict of laws rules. Consistent with Matthew 18, any claim or dispute between the parties concerning questions of law or fact or both arising out of or relating to this Agreement, its interpretation or performance, or its alleged breach, which is not disposed of by agreement of the parties, shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Atlanta, Georgia. The parties covenant to keep such questions and arbitration proceedings confidential except as necessary to effectuate and/or enforce arbitration. The parties covenant and agree that they will not sue or otherwise bring actions against each other in any courts, that arbitration is their sole and binding remedy, that they expressly waive their rights to sue or to appeal or to other remedies (except to the extent necessary to enforce the final award or finding), and that if this covenant not to sue and waiver are not legally effective then such arbitration is a prerequisite to any other remedy. The parties covenant and agree to abide by, perform, accept, and fulfill the final award or finding concerning such questions without recourse to any other court or tribunal, except to the extent necessary to enforce said final award or finding.
Effective as of May 1, 2021
