Limitation of Liability

TL;DR: It's really important to highlight how our liability is limited when it comes to issues you may encounter with our service. Please read the whole section carefully.
Under no circumstances shall we or any of our officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, or subsidiaries be liable to you for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including (but not limited to) damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible property, arising out of or relating to any access to or use of our Products, nor will we be responsible for any damage, loss, or injury resulting from hacking, tampering, or other unauthorized access to or use of our Products, or from any access to or use of any information obtained by any unauthorized access to or use of our Products.

Accordingly, some of the disclaimers and limitations set forth in the Terms may not apply to you. This limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

TL;DR: A third party arbitrator will help us resolve any disputes we might have. This means that any dispute will be resolved outside of class-action litigation. Hopefully, disputes will never be an issue, but you should read this section carefully for details on how it works.
Binding Arbitration. Except for disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and the TokenDAO: (a) waive the right to have any and all disputes or claims arising from these Terms, your use or access to our Products or any other disputes with the TokenDAO (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in a court; and (b) waive any right to a jury trial. Instead, you and the TokenDAO agree to arbitrate Disputes that are not resolved informally (as described below) through binding arbitration (i.e. the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it) instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and the TokenDAO agree that any dispute is personal to you and the TokenDAO and that any such dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. Neither party agrees to class arbitration or to an arbitration in which an individual attempt to resolve a dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and the TokenDAO agree that a dispute cannot be brought as a class, or other types of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
Process. You and the TokenDAO agree that each will notify the other, in writing, of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises so that the parties can attempt, in good faith, to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to the TokenDAO shall be provided by sending an email to [email protected]. Your notice must include (1) your name, postal address, and email address; (2) a description of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (3) the specific action that you are seeking. If you and the TokenDAO cannot resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days of the TokenDAO receiving the notice, either you or TokenDAO may, as appropriate pursuant to this Section 9, commence an arbitration proceeding. You and the TokenDAO agree that any arbitration or claim must be commenced or filed within one (1) year after the Dispute arose; otherwise, you and the TokenDAO agree that the claim is permanently barred (which means that you will no longer have the right to assert a claim regarding the Dispute).
Choice of Law. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the Texas, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, govern the Terms and any Dispute between you and us. Any Dispute under this Terms shall be finally settled by Binding Arbitration (as defined below). Any unresolved Dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this Section 9 to the extent they are consistent with it. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled in London, United Kingdom, in English, in accordance with the LCIA Arbitration Rules. Unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate your claims with those of any other party. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction, to the extent a court therein would be deemed to be a court of competent jurisdiction other than any court located in the United States of America. You further agree that our Products shall be deemed to be based solely in the Texas and that, although our Products may be available in other jurisdictions, its availability does not give rise to general or specific personal jurisdiction in any forum outside the Texas.
Authority of Arbitrator. As limited by these Terms and applicable arbitration rules, the arbitrator will have: (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute; and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. The arbitrator may only conduct 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.
