7. Limitation of Liability
The Yukon Project and its representatives, agents, and any of their respective officers, directors, equity holders, employees, parent entities, subsidiaries, affiliated entities, representatives, agents and licensors (collectively, the “Yukon Project parties”) will not be liable to you or any third party for any special, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages (such as loss of profits, loss of goodwill, loss of use, loss of data, business interruption, or other intangible losses) arising out of or relating in any way to our services or our content.
Except as expressly provided in section 9 (Dispute Resolution and Arbitration) or required by applicable law (e.g., any non-waivable rights or remedies), in no event will the total liability of the Yukon Project parties to you for all claims arising out of or relating to the use of, or any inability to use any portion of, our services, or otherwise arising out of or relating to the agreement, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, exceed in the aggregate one hundred United States dollars ($100.00).
If any of the foregoing limitations are found to be invalid, the Yukon Project parties’ total liability for all damages, losses, or causes of action of any kind or nature whatsoever shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law.
You will defend (if requested by any Yukon Project Party), indemnify, and hold harmless the Yukon Project Parties from and against any and all claims, losses, expenses, demands, or liabilities, including attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by the Yukon Project Parties in connection with any claim by a third party arising out of or in any way related to: (1) your use of our Services or our Content; (2) your violation or alleged violation of the Agreement or your violation or alleged violation of any applicable law; (3) your infringement or alleged infringement of any intellectual property or other right of any other person or entity; or (4) any dispute between you and a third party, including any provider of Third Party Content. You must not settle any such claim or matter without the prior written consent of The Yukon Project. The Yukon Project Parties reserve the right, at their own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you further agree that you will cooperate fully in the defense of any such claims.
9 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and The Yukon Project in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and The Yukon Project agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with the Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration. You and us further agree that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision; the arbitrator shall apply Texas law to all other matters. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of the Agreement. The arbitrator also has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
You understand and agree that by entering into the agreement and agreeing to arbitration, you and The Yukon Project are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You agree that you have expressly and knowingly waived these rights.
Despite the provisions of Section 9.1, you and us both agree that nothing in the Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit the right of either of us to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court within its jurisdictional limits under Consumer Arbitration Rule 9(b), even after filing an arbitration; (b) file a complaint with the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of a pending arbitration; or (d) to file a suit in a court of law solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of our Services or address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and The Yukon Project will be conducted under the Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules“) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), as modified by the Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
9.4 Notice and Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other by certified mail (“Notice“). The Yukon Project’s address for Notice is: The Yukon Project, LLC, P.O. Box 30963, Oakland, CA 94604, Attention: Legal Department. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand“). You and The Yukon Project agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and The Yukon Project do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or The Yukon Project must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. The arbitration proceedings, including any exchanged materials, shall be confidential and you and The Yukon Project agree to use reasonable efforts to streamline the proceedings, including discovery, consistent with the objectives of efficient dispute resolution.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with the Agreement, the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Fort Worth, Texas, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, or as otherwise required, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your registered account address. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse The Yukon Project for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Likewise, The Yukon Project will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not appealable, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
9.6 No Class Actions
You and The Yukon Project agree that each must bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
Further, unless both you and The Yukon Project agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If The Yukon Project makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to The Yukon Project’s address for Notice), you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to The Yukon Project’s address for Notice, in which case your account with The Yukon Project will be immediately terminated but this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive.
If any provision of this Section 10 is unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
10 Termination of Agreement; Surviving Terms.
The Agreement is effective until you discontinue all use of our Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any section of the Agreement that by its nature is intended to survive termination of the Agreement or your use or access to our Services or our Content will survive such termination.
11.1 Governing Law
The Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Texas, excluding conflicts of law provisions.
11.2 Entire Agreement
The terms of the Agreement (including the Privacy Statement and any Additional Terms) constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between The Yukon Project and you in connection with your use of our Services or our Content.
11.3 Changes to the Agreement
We may modify the Agreement at any time. We will post modifications to these Terms of Service on this page. If a change materially modifies your rights or obligations, you may need to accept the modified terms to continue to use our Services. Material modifications will take effect when you accept the modified terms; immaterial modifications will take effect when published. By continuing to use our Services following any modification to these terms, our Privacy Statement or any Additional Terms, you are agreeing to the Agreement as modified.
11.4 Waiver Only in Writing
The Yukon Project’s failure to enforce any of its rights or act with respect to a breach by you or others of the Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any rights and will not limit The Yukon Project’s rights with respect to that breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by The Yukon Project of any of the provisions in the Agreement will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of The Yukon Project.
The Yukon Project may assign the Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you. You may not assign your rights under the Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our consent.
If any provision of the Agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. Nothing in the Agreement shall affect any non-waivable statutory rights or remedies that apply to you.
