The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between us and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure.

Unless you indicate otherwise, we may notify you under such circumstances using your most current email address on record with us.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION; NO CLASS ACTIONS
You and we agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Services, the App and/or this Agreement will be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court, at your choosing. You agree that, by agreeing to this Agreement, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action lawsuit. This arbitration provision and your class action waiver shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your use of the App or the Services.
To seek arbitration or to file a small claim court action against us, you must first send to us, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim, including a description of the basis for the claim and the relief being sought, to: AudioStreamTV Inc., 19 W 21st Street, Suite 402, New York, NY 10010, Attention: General Counsel. If we initiate arbitration, we will send a similar written notice to the email address used for your Services account. Following either party's receipt of such a written notice, the parties agree to first use reasonable efforts to reach an amicable resolution to the claim. However, if the parties cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. You can also write to us (including by submitting a request with your written notice for the dispute) and we will provide them to you. The arbitrator will be bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues will be for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement.
Unless we agree otherwise in writing with you (at our discretion), you agree that any arbitration hearings or small claims court actions will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York. However, if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address.
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES AND/OR THE APP MUST COMMENCE WITHIN SIX (6) MONTHS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OR THE APPLICABLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PERIOD. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED.

You hereby agree to waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non-convenience and agree that process may be served in a manner authorized by applicable law or court rule. If any term or provision of this legal notice is for any reason held to be invalid, such invalidity shall not affect any other term or provision, and this legal notice shall be interpreted as if such term or provision had never been contained in this legal notice.
User agrees that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between User and us as a result of this Agreement and/or User's use of the App. User may not assign any part of its rights and obligations under this Agreement without our prior written consent. No waiver of any obligation or right of either party shall be effective unless in writing, executed by the party against whom it is being enforced. The terms of this Agreement are severable and may be construed to the extent of their enforceability in light of the parties' mutual intent.
