Terms of Use

Effective Date: May 26, 2024

1. Introduction and Overview

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) set forth a legally binding agreement between you and Loudbyte (“we“, “our“, or “us”) and govern your use of any website, mobile application, or online service location that posts a link to these Terms (each, a “Site”), and all features, content, subscriptions, products, and other services that we own, control, and make available to you that mention or identify these Terms (collectively, with the Sites, the “Service”). These Terms govern your access to and use of the Service.

By visiting the Site or using the Service in any way, including by making any purchases or browsing the Sites, you agree to be bound by these Terms and all applicable laws and regulations, and you acknowledge our collection, use, and disclosure of your information as described in our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with any of these Terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing the Service. WITHOUT LIMITING ANYTHING HEREIN, YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS MEANS YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THE TERMS RELATED TO CONDUCTING THIS TRANSACTION ELECTRONICALLY, DISCLAIMERS OF LOUDYTE’S WARRANTIES, DAMAGE AND REMEDY EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS, BINDING ARBITRATION, WAIVER OF A JURY TRIAL, AND A CHOICE OF California LAW (EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN).

We reserve the right to change these Terms from time to time for any reason, which shall be effected by posting the updated Terms here. Your use of the Service after we post any changes to these Terms constitutes your agreement to those changes from the date of such changes. You agree to review these Terms periodically to ensure you are familiar with the most recent version.

2. Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes; Choice of Law

A. We Both Agree to Arbitrate.

You and Loudbyte agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms, any Additional Terms, the Service, the Content, or our Privacy Policy through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Loudbyte’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights), Loudbyte may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Service, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described below.

B. What is Arbitration.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

C. Arbitration Procedures.

The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS, a reputable arbitration provider. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Service, the Content, or our Privacy Policy shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The JAMS Rules and instructions for initiating an arbitration are available from JAMS at www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267.

To initiate arbitration, you or Loudbyte must do the following things:

  1. Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered.
  2. Send the demand for arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to JAMS.
  3. Send one copy of the demand for arbitration to the other party.

The JAMS Rules will govern the payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees. The other party will cover all costs of the arbitration, including filing, administration, and arbitrator fees. Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in a mutually agreed location, under applicable law, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

D. Authority of Arbitrator.

The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Loudbyte, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitration rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including calculating any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief individually as a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Loudbyte.

E. No Class Actions.

YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. You may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

F. Waiver of Jury Trial.

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to minimal review by a court. In the event that any litigation should arise between you and Loudbyte in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, or otherwise, YOU AND LOUDBYTE WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that a judge resolve the dispute. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

G. Choice of Law/Forum Selection.

In any circumstances where the Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes permits the parties to litigate in court, these Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of the state of California, excluding its conflict of law rules. You further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in California.
