THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND ALSO LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Except for a claim by Propeller of infringement or misappropriation of Propeller’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes between you and Propeller arising under or related in any way to these Terms must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section.

YOU AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND PROPELLER ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND PROPELLER AGREE THAT EACH 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 OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and Propeller must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in San Francisco, CA The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, California or Northern District of California, as applicable. Claims of infringement or misappropriation of Propeller’s patent, copyright,trademark, or trade secret shall be exclusively brought in the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California or Northern District of California, as applicable.
The laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law rules that would result in the laws of a State other than California, govern this license and your use of the Platform.
Propeller and you acknowledge that this Agreement is concluded between Propeller and you only, and not with any Third Party Service. Propeller, not any Third Party Service, is solely responsible for Platform and the content thereof. Legal Compliance
You represent and warrant that (a) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (b) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. Third party Beneficiary
You acknowledge and agree that any Third Party Service, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, such Third Party Services, as applicable will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
You agree to indemnify, defend, release, and hold harmless Propeller, its partners, licensors, affiliates, contractors, officers, directors, employees and agents from all damages, losses and expenses arising directly or indirectly from (a) any negligent acts, omissions or willful misconduct by you, (b) your use of the Platform or any Third Party Service, (c) any breach of these Terms (including any representations or warranties set forth herein) by you, and/or (d) your violation of any law or of any rights of any third party.
You hereby agree that if the terms of this Agreement are not specifically enforced, Propeller will be irreparably damaged, and therefore you agree that Propeller shall be entitled, without bond, other security, proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect any of this Agreement, in addition to any other available remedies.
