In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that anything on our Services infringes any copyright that you own or control, you may notify CCN's designated agent as follows:
Designated Agent: Legal Dept.
Address: 7400 E. Monte Cristo Ave, Scottdale, AZ 85260
Telephone Number: 480.285.1600
E-Mail Address: [email protected]
Please see 17 U.S.C. Â§ 512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. Also, please note that if you knowingly misrepresent that any activity or material on our Services is infringing, you may be liable to CCN for certain costs and damages.
Please read this section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with CCN and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
(a) No Representative Actions. Any dispute subject to this section (as described in (b) below) is personal to you and CCN, will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
(b) Arbitration of Disputes. Except for small claims disputes in which you or CCN seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or CCN seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and CCN waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services, including claims related to privacy and data security, ("Disputes") resolved in court. For any Dispute that you have against CCN, you will first contact CCN and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim ("Notice") to CCN by email at [email protected] or by certified mail addressed to CCN, Legal Department, 7400 E. Monte Cristo Ave., Scottsdale, AZ 85260. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and CCN cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Maricopa County, Arizona, unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section 19, you will be deemed a "consumer" if you use the Services for your personal, family or household purposes. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys' fees and interest, will be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available here http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration; all other claims will be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available here http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration (collectively, "JAMS Rules"), which are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
(c) The Parties acknowledge that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 19 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Â§ 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual's claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
(d) The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, CCN, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
(e) For any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee (up to a maximum of $250 if you are a consumer), and CCN will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, CCN will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and CCN agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Arizona and the United States sitting in Maricopa County, Arizona have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
(f) Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and CCN will not have the right to assert the related claim.
(g) You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section by contacting us with the information provided at the end of the Terms. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with the "governing law and venue" section 20 below.
(h) If any portion of this Section 19 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section or the parties' ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 19; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 19 will be enforceable.
These Terms and your use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Arizona, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Arizona or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties not subject to arbitration as set forth above in section 19 shall exclusively be submitted to the state or federal courts of Maricopa County, Arizona, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
We reserve the right to modify our Services or to suspend or stop providing all or portions of our Services at any time. You also have the right to stop using our Services at any time. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to use our Services.
