You hereby acknowledge that the preceding paragraph shall apply to all content, merchandise, products, services and experiences available through the Services.

14. Copyright Infringement; Notice and Take Down Procedures. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that any materials on our websites or mobile applications infringe your copyright, you may request that they be removed. This request must bear a signature (or electronic equivalent) of the copyright holder or an authorized representative, and must: (a) identify the allegedly infringing materials; (b) indicate where on the websites or mobile applications the infringing materials are located; (c) provide your name and contact information; (d) state that you have a good faith belief that the materials are infringing; (e) state that the information in your claim is accurate; and (f) indicate that “under penalty of perjury” you are the lawful copyright owner or are authorized to act on the owner’s behalf. If you believe that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for further information. Our contact for copyright issues relating to the Services (including the notices and counter-notices) is: Diego Abba, CEO, email: legal@ italist.com c/o Orrick, 405 Howard Street , San Francisco, CA 94105. Please note that there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
YOU AND ITALIST ALSO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN ARBITRATION ONLY IN YOUR OR ITALIST’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND IN SO DOING YOU AND ITALIST HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY, TO ASSERT OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS ACTION ARBITRATION, TO ASSERT OR PARTICIPATE IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL LAWSUIT OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ARBITRATION, AND TO ASSERT OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED LAWSUIT OR JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION OF ANY KIND. HOWEVER, ITALIST WILL NOT INVOKE ITS RIGHT TO ARBITRATE ANY INDIVIDUAL CLAIM THAT YOU BRING IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, AS LONG AS IT IS BROUGHT AND MAINTAINED AS AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
Either party may initiate arbitration, which shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplemental Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes in effect on the date the arbitration is filed (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on the AAA’s website www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will be held at a place chosen by the AAA in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to your then current billing address, or at some other place to which you and Italist agree in writing. A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten (10) years experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the AAA rules. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to you or us. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect your customer account information and other confidential information if requested to do so by you or us. The payment of administrative and arbitrator’s fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on the parties. Any Claim you have must be commenced within one (1) year after the Claim arises.
