FORCE MAJEURE

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Terms of Use, Roin is not liable for any failure to perform, or delay in performing, any particular obligations under this Terms of Use where the failure or delay arises from any cause or causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature, epidemics, communication line failures, power failures, acts of God, acts of war, terrorism, riots, civil disorders or rebellions (“Force Majeure Event”).  In the event of a Force Majeure Event, the parties agree to meet and discuss how to resolve the issue.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

Roin is an independent contractor and will determine the method, details and means of performing the Services.  No party shall have the authority to bind, represent or commit the other.  Nothing in this Terms of Use shall be deemed or construed to create a joint venture or agency relationship between the parties for any purpose.

Contact information for Roin’s DMCA Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement is:  Roin, Inc.  Attn:  Copyright Agent, 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 1212, Chicago, Illinois 60654.

The Copyright Agent will not remove content from the Services in response to phone or email notifications regarding allegedly infringing content, since a valid DMCA notice must be signed, under penalty of perjury, by the copyright owner or by a person authorized to act on his or her behalf. Please submit such notifications by fax or ordinary mail only and as further described by this Section. The Copyright Agent should be contacted only if you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and that such infringement is occurring on the Services linked to and/or from the Services. All other inquiries directed to the Copyright Agent will not be responded to.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Disputes   We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case.  Before filing a claim against Roin, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us at info@roin.co  within fifteen (15) days  of the incident that is being reported.  We will try to resolve the dispute by contacting you via email, but if we cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days  of submission, you and/or Roin agree to resolve any claims related to this Terms of Use through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or your ability to opt out as described below.

Opt-Out.   You can opt-out and decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting Roin within thirty (30) days  from the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision (i.e.: the date you initially accepted this Terms of Use).  You must write us at Roin Inc., Attn: Opt-Out Arbitration, 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 1212, Chicago, Illinois 60654.  If you opt out, neither you nor Roin can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding.

Arbitration Procedures.   Except as regarding any action seeking equitable relief, including without limitation for the purpose of protecting any Roin Confidential Information and/or intellectual property rights, or except in the event the claim meets the requirements set forth in the ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or if you opt-out of arbitration as described above, any and all controversies and/or claims arising out of or relating to this Terms of Use and/or the Services shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules, in effect at the time the proceedings begin, of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy and/or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be held in Chicago, Illinois , or any other location we agree to. All information relating to and/or disclosed by any party in connection with the arbitration of any disputes hereunder shall be treated by the parties, their representatives, and the arbitrator as proprietary business information. Such information shall not be disclosed by any party or their respective representatives without the prior written authorization of the party furnishing such information. Such information shall not be disclosed by the arbitrator without the prior written authorization of all parties. Each party shall bear the burden of its own counsel fees incurred in connection with any arbitration proceedings. Judgment upon the award returned by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or their assets or application of enforcement, as the case may be. Any award by the arbitrator shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties. The parties hereby waive all rights to judicial review of the arbitrator’s decision and any award contained therein

Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate.    Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, either you and/or Roin may assert claims, if it qualifies, in small claims court in Chicago, Illinois, and Roin may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use and/or abuse of the Services, breach of Roin’s Confidential Information and/or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright and/or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration and/or the information dispute-resolution process described herein.

Judicial forum for disputes.  In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you and/or your claim, you and Roin agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Chicago, Illinois.  Both you and Roin consent to the foregoing venue and jurisdiction.
