- WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
The failure of Perris Group to exercise or enforce any rights or provisions in these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

- DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION, NO CLASS ACTIONS
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
You and Perris Group agree to be bound by the following procedure to resolve any and all disputes between us. This provision applies to all users of the Site and consumers to the fullest extent allowable by law. By accepting these terms, you and Perris Group expressly waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This agreement is intended to be interpreted broadly. The arbitrator, and not any local, state or federal court, has the exclusive authority to resolve any and all disputes arising between us, including any dispute relating to the interpretation, scope, enforceability, or formation of this agreement to arbitrate, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this agreement to arbitrate is unenforceable. This Section covers any and all disputes between us (“Disputes”), including without limitation:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before this agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms and Conditions.
The only disputes that are not covered by this Section are the following:
- a claim to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Perris Group’s (or any of Perris Group’s licensors’) intellectual property rights;
- a claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of intellectual property; and
- in addition, nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from initiating a small claims court action.
References in this Section 22 to " Perris Group," "you," and "us" include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, corporate parents, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Site and Products under this or prior agreements between us. This agreement to arbitrate evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This agreement to arbitrate provision shall survive termination of these Terms and Conditions.
- Informal Negotiations/Notice of Dispute. You and Perris Group agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least 30 days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon receipt of written notice from one person to the other (“Notice of Dispute”). Notices of Dispute must: (a) include the full name and contact information of the complaining party; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). Perris Group will send its Notice of Dispute to your billing address (if you provided it to us) or to the email address you provided to us. You will send your Notice of Dispute to:
3, Avenue des Citronniers – MC 98000, Principauté de Monaco.
- Binding Arbitration. If you and Perris Group are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days after receipt of the Notice of Dispute, either you or Perris Group may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY THIS PROVISION, YOU AND PERRIS GROUP ARE FOREGOING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and, where appropriate, its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, or if you send PERRIS GROUP a notice to the Notice of Dispute address above indicating that you are unable to pay the fees required to initiate an arbitration, then Perris Group will promptly pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and shall provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. You and Perris Group may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
- Restrictions. You and PERRIS GROUP agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between PERRIS GROUP and you individually, regardless whether the relief sought is monetary or injunctive relief, and any relief awarded in arbitration shall be applicable only to you in your individual capacity. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) no Dispute shall be arbitrated on a class basis or utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or on behalf of any person other than yourself. YOU AND PERRIS GROUP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and an authorized representative of PERRIS GROUP agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void.
- Location. If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the Southern District of New York, United States of America, and you and PERRIS GROUP agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
- Limitation on Arbitrator’s Authority. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
- Changes to This Provision. PERRIS GROUP will not enforce material changes to this agreement to arbitrate against account holders absent express agreement to the changed terms.
- APPLICABLE LAW/VENUE
The laws of the State of New York, U.S.A. without giving effect to: (i) New York’s conflict of laws provisions; (ii) the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; (iii) the 1974 Convention on the Limitation Period in the International Sale of Goods; and (iv) the Protocol amending the 1974 Convention, done at Vienna on April 11, 1980, will govern these Terms and Conditionsand any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Perris Group (as such term is defined in Section 22, above); and to the extent applicable pursuant to Section 22, above, you expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute shall be in the Southern District of New York, U.S.A., and you further agree and expressly consent (to the extent applicable pursuant to Section 22, above), to the exercise of personal jurisdiction in such courts in connection with any such dispute not precluded by Section 22 above including any claim involving Perris Group, subsidiaries, corporate parents, contractors, vendors and content providers. You also agree to comply, at your expense, with all applicable local, state, federal and international laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, U.S.A. export restrictions that relate to your use or activities on this Site. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the controlling language, at all times, for these Terms and Conditions is English, U.S.A.
- FORCE MAJEURE
Neither party shall be liable or responsible to the other party, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement (except for any of your obligations to make payments to us hereunder), when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts beyond the impacted party's ("Impacted Party") reasonable control, including, without limitation, the following force majeure events ("Force Majeure Event(s)"): (a) acts of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake, or other potential disasters, or explosion; (c) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest; (d) government order, law, or actions; (e) embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement; and (f) national or regional emergency; and (g) strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns, or other industrial disturbances; and (h) telecommunication breakdowns, power outages or shortages, lack of warehouse or storage space, inadequate transportation services, or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials; and (i) other similar events beyond the reasonable control of the Impacted Party. The Impacted Party shall give notice within 14 days of the Force Majeure Event to the other party, stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue. The Impacted Party shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized. The Impacted Party shall resume the performance of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause. In the event that the Impacted Party's failure or delay remains uncured for a period of 30 days following written notice given by it under this Section 18, the other party may thereafter terminate this Agreement upon 90 days' written notice.

(e) A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of the Federal District court for the district where you reside (or of New York County, New York if you reside outside of the United Sates) and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of the person.
Before you file a counter-notification, please carefully consider whether or not the use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court determines your counter-notification misrepresented that the content was removed by mistake. If you are unsure whether use of the content at issue constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney.
Copyright Agent. Our Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:
Perani Pozzi Associati
Piazza Armando Diaz, 7 - 20123
Milano (MI), Italy
By telephone: +39 02 4070 1644
The Copyright Agent will not remove content from the Site 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 the 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 the infringement is occurring on the Site. All other inquiries directed to the Copyright Agent will not be responded to.
