- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
If a dispute arises between you and DMM, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek an informal resolution through our customer support team. If any dispute cannot be settled informally, you and DMM agree to resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity relating to this Agreement or the Service (a “Claim”) 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, and 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 shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- Applicable Law
This Agreement and any dispute arising out of or related to it or the Service shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Los Angeles County, California in connection with any entrance of an arbitrator’s judgment or decision or any dispute with respect to the arbitration process or procedure or DMM’s exercise of its equitable rights or remedies set forth herein.
- Improperly Filed Claims
All claims you bring against DMM must be resolved in accordance with this Legal Disputes Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to Section 8.2 shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to Section 8.1, DMM shall be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $5,000, provided that DMM has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
- GENERAL PROVISIONS
DMM may publish additional policies related to specific services such as applications for mobile devices, forums, contests or loyalty programs. Your right to use such services is subject to those specific policies and these Terms of Service.
These Terms of Service, including the DMM Agreements which are incorporated herein, contain the entire understanding of you and DMM, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and us with respect to the Service.
Except as expressly and specifically set forth in this these Terms of Service, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by DMM shall be deemed a modification of these Terms of Service nor be legally binding, unless documented in physical writing, hand signed by you and a duly appointed officer of DMM.
Any notices that you provide without compliance with this Section on Notices shall have no legal effect.
Notwithstanding the binding arbitration provisions hereof and any contrary provisions herein, DMM has the following equitable rights and remedies.
You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms of Service to DMM are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm DMM and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone. Accordingly, DMM shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you.
You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages (if any).
You and DMM agree that if any portion of these Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such unenforceability, and the remaining Terms shall continue in full force and effect.
No Third Party Beneficiaries
Except as otherwise expressly provided in the Terms, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to these Terms.
