You agree to hold harmless, defend and indemnify CoralReefMKT and the CoralReefMKT Providers from all liabilities, losses, damages, deficiencies, claims, causes of action, demands and expenses, (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees), that are due to, arise from or otherwise relate to your conduct or your use or misuse of the Service or Materials, including, without limitation, any actual or threatened suit, demand or claim made against CoralReefMKT or any CoralReefMKT Provider that arises out of or relates to: (i) any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights of any third party, (ii) your breach of these Terms including without limitation your breach of any of your representations and warranties; (iii) your use of any of the Service or Materials; or (iv) any content that you store on or transmit through the Service. CoralReefMKT may assume exclusive control of any defense of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you agree to cooperate with CoralReefMKT in such event.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO BINDING ARBITRATION (INCLUDING A JURY TRIAL WAIVER) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES (OTHER THAN SPECIFIED INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CLAIMS AND SMALL CLAIMS) WITH CORALREEFMKT AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM CORALREEFMKT (NO CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS).
A. Binding Arbitration. Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) arising out of or related to a violation of Section 7 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and CoralReefMKT agree (1) to waive your and CoralReefMKT’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, the Service or the Materials, resolved in a court, and (2) to waive your and CoralReefMKT’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and CoralReefMKT agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
B. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and CoralReefMKT agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the CoralReefMKT Service or the Materials is personal to you and CoralReefMKT and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and CoralReefMKT agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and CoralReefMKT agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
C. Federal Arbitration Act. You and CoralReefMKT agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforce-ability of this Section 20 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
D. Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. You and CoralReefMKT agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to CoralReefMKT shall be sent by certified mail or courier to Swift Witted LLC., Attn: CoralReefMKT Designated Agent, 9711 S Mason Road. Suite 125 #254, Richmond, TX 77407. Your notice must include (1) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Account, and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (2) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (3) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent to the email address you used to register for your Account, and will include (a) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and CoralReefMKT cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or CoralReefMKT may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 20, commence an arbitration proceeding, or to the extent specifically provided for in section 20(A), file a claim in court.
E. Process. Except for Disputes arising out of or related to a violation of Section 7 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and CoralReefMKT agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or CoralReefMKT within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and CoralReefMKT will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and CoralReefMKT agree that (1) any arbitration will occur in Fort Bend, Texas (2) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (3) that the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Fort Bend County, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
F. Authority of the Arbitrator. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (1) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (2) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
H. Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 20 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 20 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 20(B) are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
I. Opt-Out Right. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 20 by writing to: Swift Witted LLC., Attn: CoralReefMKT Designated Agent, 9711 S Mason Road. Suite 125 #254, Richmond, TX 77407. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt-out of binding arbitration.

21. Governing Law; Venue.
These Terms, your access to and use of the Service and Materials shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Fort Bend, Texas.
22. Export Controls.
