THEFANS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS, CONTENT, INFORMATION, OR DATA OF THIRD PARTIES, AND YOU RELEASE US, OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST ANY SUCH THIRD PARTIES.
You (and also any third party for whom you operate an account or activity on the Service) agree to defend (at TheFans's request), indemnify and hold the TheFans Parties harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with any of the following (including as a result of your direct activities on the Service or those conducted on your behalf): (i) your Content or your access to or use of the Service; (ii) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms of Conditions; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation, any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; (iv) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; or (v) any misrepresentation made by you. You will cooperate as fully required by TheFans in the defense of any claim. TheFans reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of TheFans.
Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to: (1) your or TheFans's intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents); (2) violations of the API Terms; or (3) violations of provisions 13 or 15 of the Basic Terms, above ("Excluded Disputes"), you agree that all disputes between you and TheFans (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with TheFans, including without limitation disputes related to these Terms of Conditions, your use of the Service, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the England Arbitration Association's rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and TheFans hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor TheFans will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if TheFans is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the England Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either TheFans or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Conditions. You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor TheFans can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify TheFans in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out: TheFans, 52a Marlborough Hill, HARROW, Greater London and on the email firstname.lastname@example.org You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your TheFans account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with TheFans.
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with TheFans must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
These Terms of Conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED KINGDOM CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE. For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these Terms of Conditions, the Excluded Disputes or if you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, you agree to resolve any dispute you have with TheFans exclusively in a state or federal court located in United Kingdom, London, and to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in London County for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
If any provision of these Terms of Conditions is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable during arbitration or by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Conditions and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. TheFans's failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. TheFans reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with TheFans.
If you are using the Service on behalf of a legal entity, you represent that you are authorized to enter into an agreement on behalf of that legal entity. These Terms of Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and TheFans and governs your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and TheFans. You will not assign the Terms of Conditions or assign any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the prior written consent of TheFans. Any purported assignment or delegation by you without the appropriate prior written consent of TheFans will be null and void. TheFans may assign these Terms of Conditions or any rights hereunder without your consent. If any provision of these Terms of Conditions is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the parties nevertheless agree that such portion will be deemed severable from these Terms of Conditions and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions, and the remaining provisions of the Terms of Conditions remain in full force and effect. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify the Terms of Conditions. These Terms of Conditions do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights.
