To make these Terms of Use easier to read, the Diverse Cinema Site, Apps, Video Player and our services are referred to collectively as the “Diverse Cinema Services.”

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: BY USING ANY DIVERSE CINEMA SERVICES AND ACCEPTING THESE TERMS OF USE YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. YOU AND DIVERSE CINEMA WAIVE THE RIGHT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH DISPUTES. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION 10 TITLED “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION (INCLUDING THE PROCEDURE TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION).

1. CHANGES TO THE TERMS OF USE BY DIVERSE CINEMA

Diverse Cinema may amend these Terms of Use at any time by posting the amended Terms of Use on the Diverse Cinema Services (available at https://www.diversecinema.com/terms). Any amendment to these Terms of Use will be effective upon posting on the Diverse Cinema Services. Your continued use of the Diverse Cinema Services after any such amendment is posted constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of such amendment. If you do not agree to be bound by the updated Terms of Use, then, except as otherwise provided in Section 10, you may not access or otherwise use the Diverse Cinema Services. Because the Diverse Cinema Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Diverse Cinema Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion and without liability to you.

10. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

(1) Diverse Cinema, including its Affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, and you agree that any Dispute (as defined herein) between you and Diverse Cinema, regarding any aspect of your relationship with Diverse Cinema, will be resolved in a binding, confidential, individual and fair arbitration process, and not in court. Each of you and Diverse Cinema agrees to give up the right to sue in court. The terms of this Section 10 are referred to in these Terms of Use as the “Arbitration Agreement”.

(2) The term “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any dispute, claim, demand, count, cause of action, or controversy between you and Diverse Cinema, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, or any other intentional tort), or any other legal or equitable theory. The term “Dispute” specifically includes, but is not limited to, any disputes, actions, claims, or controversies between you and the Diverse Cinema that arise from or in any way relate to or concern any Content, products or services provided by Diverse Cinema including but not limited to the Diverse Cinema Services (as defined above), this Arbitration Agreement, any other aspect of these Terms of Use (including their applicability and their conformance to applicable law), any billing disputes, and any disputes relating to telephonic, text message, or any other communications either of us received from the other. The only exceptions to this Arbitration Agreement are that (i) each of you and Diverse Cinema retains the right to sue in small claims court and (ii) each of you and Diverse Cinema may bring suit in court against the other to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Disputes over whether these exceptions apply shall be resolved by the court in which such action has been brought; all other disputes over arbitrability shall be resolved by the arbitrator.

(3) Each of you and Diverse Cinema also agrees to give up the ability to seek to represent, in a class action or otherwise, anyone but each of you and Diverse Cinema (see paragraph 9 below).

(4) There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator, however, can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief, or statutory damages); provided that they are recoverable under these Terms of Use.

(5) These Terms of Use evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive termination of the Terms of Use.

(6) Any arbitration between you and Diverse Cinema will be conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this agreement to arbitrate. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator, and if you and Diverse Cinema cannot agree on who that single arbitrator will be, the arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the JAMS Rules, with the participation and involvement of Diverse Cinema and you pursuant to JAMS Rule 12. The JAMS Rules are available on its website at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. The Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/consumer-minimum-standards/. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms of Use.

(7) If either you or Diverse Cinema wish to arbitrate a claim, you or Diverse Cinema must first send by mail to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving notice, the specific facts giving rise to the Dispute, the Diverse Cinema Service to which the Notice relates, and the relief requested. Your Notice to the Diverse Cinema must be sent by mail to: Arbitration Notice of Dispute, 8 The Green, STE A, Dover, DE 19901 USA. Diverse Cinema will send any Notice to you at the contact information we have for you or that you provide. It is the sender’s responsibility to ensure that the recipient receives the Notice. During the first 45 days after you or we send a Notice to the other, you and we may try to reach a settlement of the Dispute.

(8) If you and we do not resolve the Dispute within 45 days, either you or we may initiate arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Rules. Further instructions on submitting a Demand for Arbitration may be found at http://www.jamsadr.com/files/Uploads/Documents/JAMS_Arbitration_Demand.pdf. In addition to filing this Demand for Arbitration with JAMS in accordance with its rules and procedures, you must send a copy of this completed Demand for Arbitration to the Diverse Cinema at the address listed above to which you sent your Notice of Dispute.

(9) You and the Diverse Cinema acknowledge and agree to abide by the following rules for arbitration:

(a) YOU AND DIVERSE CINEMA 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, REPRESENTATIVE OR MULTI-CLAIMANT PROCEEDING, AND THE ARBITRATOR SHALL HAVE NO POWER TO AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (b) Diverse Cinema will pay arbitration costs as required by the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards and consistent with paragraph 10 below; (c) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law and these Terms of Use; and (d) each side pays his, her or its own attorneys’ fees, except as otherwise provided in paragraph 10 below.

(10) JAMS charges filing and other fees to conduct arbitrations. Ordinarily, the claimant has to pay the filing fee to initiate arbitration, but if you wish to commence an arbitration against Diverse Cinema, you and the Diverse Cinema acknowledge and agree to abide by the following:

If you are seeking to recover less than $100, Diverse Cinema will pay the filing fee on your behalf or reimburse your payment of it.

If you are seeking to recover $100 or more, you will have to pay the filing fee charged by JAMS.

Diverse Cinema and you agree that, if the claims to be arbitrated total less than $100 (inclusive of attorneys’ fees), the claim ordinarily should be decided on written submissions only, without a telephonic or in-person hearing. Diverse Cinema will not request a hearing for any claims totaling less than $1,000. This provision shall not be construed by the arbitrator to deprive you of any rights you may have to a telephonic or in-person hearing in your hometown area pursuant to the JAMS Rules.

Diverse Cinema and you agree that, if the claims to be arbitrated total $100 or more, the arbitration will occur in a manner and place consistent with the JAMS Rules.

(11) Regardless of how the arbitration proceeds, each of you and Diverse Cinema shall cooperate in good faith in the exchange of non-privileged documents and information as necessary in accordance with the JAMS Rules, and the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain his or her findings and conclusions.

(12) Each of you and Diverse Cinema may incur attorneys’ fees during the arbitration. Each side agrees to pay his, her or its own attorneys’ fees unless the claim(s) at issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its attorneys’ fees, and in such instance, the fees awarded shall be determined by the applicable law(s). In addition to whatever rights you may have to recover your attorneys’ fees under applicable law, if you prevail in the arbitration, and if Diverse Cinema failed to make a settlement offer to you before the arbitration or the amount you win is at least 25% greater than Diverse Cinema’s highest settlement offer, then Diverse Cinema will pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees in addition to the amount the arbitrator awarded. If Diverse Cinema wins the arbitration, you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees. In addition, if the arbitrator, at the request of the winning party, finds that the losing party brought a claim or asserted a defense frivolously or for an improper purpose, then regardless of the amount in dispute, the arbitrator must order the losing party to pay both sides’ arbitration fees and may order the losing party to pay the winning party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, unless such an award of fees is prohibited by applicable law.

(13) The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief, only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim, only as permitted by applicable law, and only to the extent that declaratory and injunctive relief are permitted by these Terms of Use. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, exemplary, multiplied or consequential damages or any other relief not allowed under this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator also may not order Diverse Cinema to pay any monies to or take any actions with respect to persons other than you, unless Diverse Cinema explicitly consents in advance, after an arbitrator is selected, to permit the arbitrator to enter such an order. Further, unless Diverse Cinema expressly agrees, the arbitrator may not consolidate other persons’ claims with yours, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, multi-claimant or class proceeding.

(14) You and Diverse Cinema agree to maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and shall not disclose the fact of the arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the arbitration, the arbitrator’s decision and the existence or amount of any award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, an order confirming the award, or unless otherwise required by law or court order. In keeping with the confidential nature of the arbitration, You and Diverse Cinema agree that an order confirming award is only necessary if the obligations of the award have not been performed. Therefore, before taking any steps to confirm the arbitration award, the party seeking confirmation of the award must give the other party notice of its intention to confirm the award. If the party who would be the respondent in any such confirmation proceeding performs its obligation under the terms of the arbitration award within 15 business days of such notice, the party who gave notice of its intent to confirm the award shall not seek to confirm or otherwise enforce the award.

(15) With the exception of subpart (a) in paragraph (9) (i.e., the waiver of the ability to proceed on behalf of multiple claimants or a purported class), if any part of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the balance of this Arbitration Agreement shall remain in effect and be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, or illegal provision were not contained. If, however, subpart (a) in paragraph (9) is found invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, but the rest of these Terms of Use, including the provisions governing where actions against Diverse Cinema must be pursued, the choice of governing law, and our mutual waiver of the right to a trial by jury, will remain in effect and apply to any claim that, for this or any other reason, proceeds in court rather than in arbitration.

11. TERMINATION. We may terminate your access to and use of the Diverse Cinema Services, at our sole discretion, at any time and without notice to you. Without limiting the forgoing, we may, at our sole discretion, without notice to you, terminate or restrict your Account or your use of the Diverse Cinema Services, including the Content, or any portion thereof, at any time, without liability, if Diverse Cinema determines in its sole discretion that you have breached these Terms of Use, violated any law, rule, or regulation, engaged in other inappropriate conduct, place an undue burden on our networks or servers or for any other business reason or no reason. We may further use technology to limit activities, such as the number of calls to the Diverse Cinema servers being made, and you agree to respect these limitations and not take any steps to circumvent, avoid, or bypass them.

You may cancel your Account via the functionality provided in Diverse Cinema Services.

Upon any termination, discontinuation or cancellation of the Diverse Cinema Services or your Account, the following Sections will survive 2(b)(ii), 2(f)(ii), 2(g), 2(h), 6, 8, 10, 11, and 12.

12. GENERAL INFORMATION

Export Controls. Software and the transmission of applicable technical data, if any, in connection with the Diverse Cinema Services are subject to export controls. You agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding software and the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

Choice of Law and Forum.

These Terms of Use are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

Except with respect to Disputes to be resolved through an arbitration process in accordance with the Arbitration Agreement contained above, you and Diverse Cinema agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Delaware to resolve any Dispute arising out of the Agreement or the Diverse Cinema Services. YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CLAIMS, COUNTERCLAIMS, CROSS-CLAIMS, OR THIRD PARTY CLAIMS) ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE DIVERSE CINEMA SERVICES, OR CONTENT MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. AFTER SUCH PERIOD, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED.

No Waiver/Reliance. If you see other parties violating these Terms of Use, you may let us know at feedback@DiverseCinema.com (subject line: “TOU Violation”). You may not rely upon Diverse Cinema’s response with respect to one party or one situation as any indication of what Diverse Cinema might do with respect to another party or another situation, even if the parties or situations appear to you to be similar. Similarly, if we fail to act in response to a violation of these Terms of Use, you should not assume that we do not object to the violation or even that we are aware of it. In addition, you may not construe a waiver of any provision of these Terms of Use with respect to any party as a waiver of that provision (or any other provision) with respect to either that party or any other party. Further, Diverse Cinema’s decision to delay exercising or enforcing any right or remedy under these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such right or remedy. Even if Diverse Cinema acts in a way that appears to you to be inconsistent with these Terms of Use, Diverse Cinema’s action will not be deemed a waiver or constructive amendment of these Terms of Use. Diverse Cinema’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Diverse Cinema. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms of Use will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms of Use or otherwise.

Integration, Amendment, and Severability. Please note that these Terms of Use, including any end user license agreement that might accompany Diverse Cinema authorized applications, features and devices, constitute the entire legal agreement between you and Diverse Cinema and govern your use of the Diverse Cinema Services (including your use of the Content) (but excludes any services, if any, that Diverse Cinema may provide to you under a separate signed written agreement), and completely replace any prior oral or written understandings or agreements between you and Diverse Cinema in relation to the Diverse Cinema Services, including Content. Except as set forth in Section 1 above, these Terms of Use may not be amended or varied except in a writing signed by Diverse Cinema. Although we understand that electronic or digital signatures are frequently viewed as the equivalent of traditional written signatures these days, for these purposes, a signature or “signed” writing or written agreement may not include an electronic or digital signature. These Terms of Use operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, you and we agree that the provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect.

Assignment. You may not assign or transfer these Terms of Use, by operation of law or otherwise, without Diverse Cinema’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms of Use, without such consent, will be null. Diverse Cinema may freely assign or transfer these Terms of Use without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms of Use will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns

Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by Diverse Cinema under these Terms of Use, including those regarding modifications to these Terms of Use, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
