2. REGISTRATION.

a. Registering Your Account.  In order to access certain features of Demiplane Properties you may be required to become a Registered User.  For purposes of the Terms of Use, a “Registered User” is a user who has registered an account on the Website (“Account”) or has a valid account on the social networking service (“SNS”) through which the user has connected to the Website (each such account, a “Third-Party Account”).

b. Access Through a SNS.  If you access the Demiplane Properties through a SNS as part of the functionality of the Website and/or the Services, you may link your Account with Third-Party Accounts, by allowing Demiplane to access your Third-Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account.  You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third-Party Account login information to Demiplane and/or grant Demiplane access to your Third-Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein) without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third-Party Account and without obligating Demiplane to pay any fees or making Demiplane subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third-party service providers.  By granting Demiplane access to any Third-Party Accounts, you understand that Demiplane may access, make available and store (if applicable) any information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags and/or other materials accessible through Demiplane Properties (collectively, “Content”) that you have provided to and stored in your Third-Party Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through Demiplane Properties via your Account.  Unless otherwise specified in the Terms of Use, all SNS Content shall be considered to be Your Content (as defined in Section 3) for all purposes of the Terms of Use.  Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on Demiplane Properties.  Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Demiplane’s access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then your Account and SNS Content will no longer be available on and through Demiplane Properties.  You have the ability to disable the connection between the Demiplane Properties and your Third-Party Accounts at any time by deleting your Account.  PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR TERMS OF USE(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND DEMIPLANE DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THAT MAY BE PROVIDED TO IT BY SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS IN VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY SETTINGS THAT YOU HAVE SET IN SUCH THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS.  Demiplane makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement, and Demiplane is not responsible for any SNS Content.

c. Registration Data.  In registering an account on the Website, you agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.  You represent that you are (i) at least thirteen (13) years old; (ii) of legal age to form a binding contract; and (iii) not a person barred from using Demiplane Properties under the laws of the United States, your place of residence or any other applicable jurisdiction.  You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account.  You agree that you shall monitor your Account to restrict use by minors, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of Demiplane Properties by minors.  You may not share your Account or password with anyone, and you agree to (y) notify Demiplane immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or any other breach of security; and (z) exit from your Account at the end of each session.  If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Demiplane has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Demiplane has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of Demiplane Properties (or any portion thereof).  You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself.  You agree that you shall not have more than one Account per platform or SNS at any given time.  Demiplane reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights.  You agree not to create an Account or use Demiplane Properties if you have been previously removed by Demiplane, or if you have been previously banned from any of Demiplane Properties.

d. Your Account.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you shall have no ownership or other property interest in your Account, and you further acknowledge and agree that all rights in and to your Account are and shall forever be owned by and inure to the benefit of Demiplane.

Necessary Equipment and Software.  You must provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to Demiplane Properties, including but not limited to, a mobile device or computer that is suitable to connect with and use Demiplane Properties.  You are solely responsible for any fees, including Internet connection or mobile fees, that you incur when accessing Demiplane Properties.  By providing your cellphone number and using the Services, you hereby affirmatively consent to our use of your cellphone number for calls and texts in order to perform and improve upon the Services.  Demiplane will not assess and charge for any calls or texts, but standard message charges or other charged from your wireless carrier may apply.  You may opt out of receiving text messages from us by emailing privacy@demiplane.com.

3. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CONTENT.

a. Types of Content.  You acknowledge that all Content, including Demiplane Properties, is the sole responsibility of the party from whom such Content originated.  This means that you, and not Demiplane, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, e-mail, transmit or otherwise make available (“Make Available”) through Demiplane Properties (“Your Content”), and that you and other Registered Users of Demiplane Properties, and not Demiplane, are similarly responsible for all Content that you and they Make Available through Demiplane Properties (“User Content”).

b. No Obligation to Pre-Screen Content.  You acknowledge that Demiplane has no obligation to pre-screen Content (including, but not limited to, User Content), although Demiplane reserves the right in its sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse or remove any Content.  By entering into the Terms of Use you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such monitoring.  You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the transmission of Your Content, including without limitation chat, text, or voice communications.  In the event that Demiplane pre-screens, refuses or removes any Content, you acknowledge that Demiplane will do so for Demiplane’s benefit, not yours.  Without limiting the foregoing, Demiplane shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the Terms of Use or is otherwise objectionable.

c. Storage.  Unless expressly agreed to by Demiplane in writing elsewhere, Demiplane has no obligation to store any of Your Content that you Make Available on Demiplane Properties.  Demiplane has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or accuracy of any Content, including Your Content; the failure to store, transmit or receive transmission of Content; or the security, privacy, storage, or transmission of other communications originating with or involving use of Demiplane Properties.  Certain Services may enable you to specify the level at which such Services restrict access to Your Content.  You are solely responsible for applying the appropriate level of access to Your Content.  If you do not choose, the system may default to its most permissive setting.  You agree that Demiplane retains the right to create reasonable limits on Demiplane’s use and storage of the Content, including Your Content, such as limits on file size, storage space, processing capacity, and similar limits described on the Website and as otherwise determined by Demiplane in its sole discretion.

19. DISPUTE RESOLUTION. 

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully.  It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Demiplane and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

a. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement.  You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Demiplane, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify,; and (2) you or Demiplane may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).  This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Terms of Use or any prior version of this Terms of Use.

b. Arbitration Rules and Forum.  The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent: Corporations Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, DE  19807.  The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider.  Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/.  JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267.  If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Demiplane will pay them for you.  In addition, Demiplane will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

c. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location.  Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

d. Authority of Arbitrator.  The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable.  The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Demiplane.  The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Terms of Use (including the Arbitration Agreement).  The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded.  The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have.  The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.

e. Waiver of Jury Trial.  YOU AND DEMIPLANE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.  You and Demiplane are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 19.  An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Terms of Use as a court would.  However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.

f. Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief.  ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.  If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of Wisconsin.  All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.

g. 30-Day Right to Opt Out.  You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: legal@demiplane.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement.  Your notice must include your name and address, your Demiplane username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Demiplane account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement.  If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Terms of Use will continue to apply to you.  Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.

h. Severability.  Except as provided in Section 19(h), if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

i. Survival of Agreement.  This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Demiplane.

j. Modification.  Notwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Use to the contrary, we agree that if Demiplane makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Demiplane at the following address: legal@demiplane.com.
