IN NO EVENT SHALL TRUSTED BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY LOST PROFIT OR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF TRUSTED, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, WHERE PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT TRUSTED’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF TRUSTED (FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION), WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100).

    6. You acknowledge that you are familiar with the provisions of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which provides as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” You hereby expressly waive and relinquish all rights and benefits under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code and any law or legal principle of similar effect in any jurisdiction with respect to the releases and/or discharges granted herein, including but not limited to the releases and/or discharges of unknown claims.

  15. Termination

    1. These Terms remain in effect while you use Trusted and, for registered users, as long as your account remains open. You may delete your account at any time. We may suspend or terminate your account or your access to parts of Trusted, for any or no reason, without notice to you. We will have no liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your account or related deletion of your information.

    2. All provisions of these Terms shall survive termination or expiration of these Terms except those provisions granting access to or use of Trusted. For the avoidance of doubt, you agree that these Terms apply to your use of Trusted and any content posted on Trusted at any time prior to the termination or expiration of these Terms.

  16. Changes to Terms

    1. We may revise these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion by posting an updated version on Trusted. The revised Terms will be effective immediately for unregistered users and users registering accounts on or after the effective date. For users who registered accounts before the effective date, they will become effective thirty (30) days after the effective date. Any such changes will not apply to any claim brought prior to the effective date of the revised Terms incorporating such changes. You are expected to periodically review this page for the latest information on our Terms. Your continued use of Trusted is subject to the most current effective version of these Terms. If you do not agree to these changed terms, you may close your account within the 30-day period and you will not be bound by the changes.

  17. Third-Party Discovery

    1. You agree to waive your right to file a pre-suit discovery proceeding seeking a user’s identifying information from Trusted. If you intend to propound discovery seeking a user’s identifying information, you agree to do so pursuant to a valid California subpoena. You further agree that all such subpoenas and discovery proceedings arising from such subpoenas shall be issued from, brought and resolved exclusively in the state courts located within San Francisco County, California or the federal courts in the Northern District of California, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for such discovery proceedings.

  18. Disclaimers and Limitation on Liability

    1. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE TRUSTED GROUP ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND TRUSTED 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.

      1. Governing Law. These Terms and any and all claims, disputes, or other legal proceedings by or between you or us, including but not limited to any such claims or disputes that are in any way related to or arising under these Terms or your access to or use of Trusted, shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any conflict-of-laws principles that may otherwise provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. The parties agree that their arrangement under these Terms is in interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies to the construction of the “Agreement to Arbitrate” provision below. For any claim, dispute, or other legal proceeding not subject to the “Agreement to Arbitrate” provision below, the claim or dispute shall be brought and litigated exclusively in the state courts located within San Francisco County, California or the federal courts in the Northern District of California, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
      2. Agreement to Arbitrate. If you reside in the United States, subject to the Exceptions to Arbitration set forth below, you and Trusted each agree that any and all disputes between consumer users of Trusted and the Trusted Group arising under or related in any way to these Terms and such users’ use of Trusted must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. With the exception of the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this “Dispute Resolution” section, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate will still apply.
      3. Exceptions to Arbitration. If, for some reason, the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this Dispute Resolution section cannot be enforced, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate will not apply. Where this Agreement to Arbitrate does not apply, the remainder of this Agreement and the Dispute Resolution section will continue to apply.
      4. Informal Dispute Resolution. If either of us intends to seek arbitration under the agreement, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating arbitration. Notice to the Trusted Group should be sent to the Legal Department, Trusted Inc., 201 California St., Suite 950, San Francisco, CA 94111. If you have an account on Trusted, notice to you will be sent to the email address or a physical address associated with your account. The notice of dispute (“Notice”) must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If Trusted and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Trusted may commence formal proceeding.
      5. Arbitration Procedure. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), if applicable, as modified by this section. The AAA’s rules and a form for initiating the proceeding are available at www.adr.org. Any settlement offer made by you or Trusted shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. Unless otherwise required by the applicable arbitration rules, the arbitration shall be held in San Francisco, California. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, you and Trusted may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Trusted subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you or Trusted may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Trusted user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
      6. Limitation on Time to File Claims. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR TRUSTED MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
      7. Opt-Out Procedure. IF YOU ARE A NEW TRUSTED USER, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE (“OPT-OUT”) BY MAILING US A WRITTEN OPT-OUT NOTICE (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”). THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THE TRUSTED TERMS FOR THIS FIRST TIME. YOU MUST MAIL THE OPT-OUT NOTICE TO TRUSTED INC, ATTN: LEGAL DEPARTMENT, TRUSTED, INC., RE: OPT-OUT NOTICE, 201 CALIFORNIA ST., SUITE 950, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94111.
      8. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts these Terms and this Dispute Resolution section will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
      9. Changes to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any changes to this “Arbitration” section (other than an change to any referenced notice address or site link) in the future, that change will not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding prior to the effective date of the change. The change will apply to all other disputes or claims governed by this Arbitration section that have arisen or may arise between you and Trusted. We will notify you of changes to this Arbitration section by posting the changes on Trusted at least 30 days before the effective date of the changes and by email. If you do not agree to these changed terms, you may close your account within the 30-day period and you will not be bound by the changes.
  19. Other

    1. Except as specifically stated in another agreement we have with you, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of Trusted and these Terms supersede all prior proposals, negotiations, agreements, and understandings concerning the subject matter of these Terms. No waiver by the Trusted Group of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Trusted Group to assert a right or provision under these Terms.

    2. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect. The Terms, and any rights or obligations hereunder, are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with Trusted’s prior written consent but may be assigned or transferred by us without restriction. Any attempted assignment by you shall violate these Terms and be void. The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect; as used in the Terms, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.”
