We reserve the right to remove Content alleged to be infringing or otherwise illegal without prior notice and at our sole discretion. In appropriate circumstances, we will also terminate a Chuck User account if the Member is determined to be a repeat infringer.

If you believe that a notice of infringement has been improperly submitted against you, you may submit a counter-notice, electronically or physically signed by you, and containing the following:

  1. identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

6.5  Governing Law. These Terms, the Chuck Offering, Content, and any disputes related to or concerning any of the foregoing (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual), will be governed by and settled in accordance with the laws of Delaware, notwithstanding the choice of laws rules of any jurisdiction to the contrary. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms, the Chuck Offering, or Content, must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred.

6.6  Dispute Resolution. Any disputes between or claims brought by you or us arising out of or related to these Terms, the Chuck Offering, or Content (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual, as well as the arbitrability of any disputes) will be referred to and finally settled by binding arbitration before the JAMS (jamsadr.com) in accordance with JAMS streamlined rules and procedures (available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/) in effect at the time of arbitration except as inconsistent with this section. The arbitration will be conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. If in-person appearance is required, such hearings will be held in New York City unless another location is mutually agreed upon by the parties. In all such cases, the arbitration will be administered by JAMS in accordance with their applicable rules. The arbitrator will apply the law specified in section 6.5 above. All awards may if necessary be enforced by any court having jurisdiction. The existence of any dispute, the existence or details of the arbitration proceeding, and all related documents, materials, evidence, judgments and awards therein, will be kept confidential. Except as required by law, no party will make any public announcements with respect to the proceeding or the award, except as required to enforce same. The parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury and agree to only bring claims in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this section will preclude the right and ability to file and maintain at any time an action for recovery of injunctive or provisional relief in any court of competent jurisdiction under the laws applicable thereto. All claims (excluding requests for injunctive or equitable relief) between the parties must be resolved using arbitration in accordance with this section. Should either party file an action contrary to this section, the other party may recover lawyers’ fees and costs, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the claim in timely fashion.

6.7  Assignment. These Terms will not be assigned, delegated, or transferred by you, in whole or in part, whether voluntary, involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, sale of assets, or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any such purported assignment, delegation or transfer without such written consent will be void. We may at any time assign these Terms without prior consent or notice. These Terms will be binding on, and inure to the benefit of, the parties and their respective and permitted successors and assigns.

6.8  Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that breach of these Terms, or any unauthorized use, disclosure or distribution of the Chuck Offering or Content, may cause irreparable harm to us, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain, and that we will be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief (in addition to any other available remedies), in any court of competent jurisdiction under the applicable laws thereto.

6.9  Delaware-Based.  Your use of the Chuck Offering will not be construed as our purposefully availing ourselves of the benefits or privileges of doing business in any other country, state or jurisdiction other than Delaware.

6.10  General. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and govern each Chuck User’s use of the Chuck Offering, superseding any prior agreements. Each Chuck User may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply in the use of affiliate services, third party content or third party software. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will be deemed a further waiver or continuing waiver or such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Nothing herein will be deemed to create an agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship of any kind between us and any user or other person or entity, nor do these terms extend rights to any third party. The parties hereto confirm that they have requested that these Terms and all attachments and related documents, if any, be drafted in English.
