Proprietary Online Services Any area of this Site that is accessed through any proprietary online service is subject to the rules, policies and guidelines of such proprietary online service.

Law and Jurisdiction These Terms of Use and any dispute that may arise between you and BrainTrust Founders Studio shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law and the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction).

DISPUTES ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF USE AND YOUR USE OF THE SITE SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION AS PROVIDED BELOW. BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE HEREBY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO BRING DISPUTES TO A COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. WE ALSO BOTH AGREE THAT YOU OR WE MAY BRING SUIT IN COURT TO ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER MISUSE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver In the event of any dispute between you and us regarding these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, the Site and/or any products or services purchased from the Site, you and Founders Studio agree to first send the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement setting forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute by e-mail to customerservice@braintrustfoundersstudio.com. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and BrainTrust Founders Studio will attempt to resolve any dispute through informal negotiation within 30 days from the date that the notice of dispute is sent. If we are unable to resolve a dispute by negotiation, you agree that disputes must be resolved through binding arbitration rather than by a court, provided that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms of Use. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and court review of an arbitration award is limited. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us at customerservice@braintrustfoundersstudio.com with “Arbitration Request” in the subject line.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.

ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION. You agree to arbitrate with Founders Studio only in your individual capacity and not as a representative or member of a class or in any consolidated or representative proceeding. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. For certain claims, like violations of these Terms of Use or breaches of intellectual property covenants, we reserve the right to seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. All arbitrations shall be initiated in Manhattan County, New York.
