You and Canal Circle™ agree that any dispute or claim between you and Canal Circle™ arising out of or related to the Canal Circle™ platform shall be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (i) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify and (ii) Canal Circle™ may bring actions in court to enforce its intellectual property rights. The U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim, to:


Canal Circle Pte. Ltd.

80 Raffles Place #32-01 UOB PLAZA

Singapore

Attn: Legal / Arbitration Notice


The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA rules. If you are a User, Canal Circle™ will reimburse you for those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. Also, if you are a User, Canal Circle™ will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you are domiciled or at another mutually agreed location.

YOU AND CANAL CIRCLE™ EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, YOU AND CANAL CIRCLE™ EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

SEVERABILITY

If any provision contained in these Terms is held by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed modified in such manner as to render such provision valid, legal, and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law in such jurisdiction, and the remaining provisions contained in these Terms shall not be affected and shall remain in full force and effect.

NO WAIVER

A failure by Canal Circle™ to exercise or enforce any right or provision under these Terms of Use does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. A waiver of any right or provision under these Terms of Use will only be effective if it is in writing and signed by Canal Circle™.

AFFILIATE DISCLOSURE
