If a dispute arises between you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com or our Affiliates, our goal is to resolve the dispute quickly and cost-effectively. Accordingly, you, PicMiiCrowdfunding.com, and our Affiliates agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, the other Terms of Service, your relationship with PicMiiCrowdfunding.com, the termination of your relationship with PicMiiCrowdfunding.com or the Service (each, a “Claim”) in accordance with this Section. For the avoidance of doubt, Claims include, but are not limited to, all claims, disputes, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service, any payments or monies you claim are due to you from PicMiiCrowdfunding.com or its Affiliates or successors, trade secrets, unfair competition, false advertising, consumer protection, privacy, compensation, classification, expense reimbursement, termination, discrimination or harassment and claims arising under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act as enacted in any state, state statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other federal or state legal claims arising out of or relating to your relationship with PicMiiCrowdfunding.com or the termination of that relationship. Only with respect to the Arbitration Provision, Claims do not include disputes arising out of either party’s intellectual property rights for which a provisional remedy or equitable relief is sought or disputes that may not be subject to a pre-dispute arbitration agreement as provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Public Law 111-203) and are excluded from the coverage of the Arbitration Provision. You agree that any Claim must be resolved as described in the subsections below titled “Informal Dispute Resolution” and “Mandatory Binding Arbitration”. You understand and agree (i) that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration and (ii) that you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court.
11.2 INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, you agree to first notify PicMiiCrowdfunding.com of the Claim addressed to PicMii Crowdfunding, LLC, PO BOX 5292, Lancaster PA 17606 or by email to support@PicMiiCrowdfunding.com, and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”) and seek informal resolution of the Claim. Any Notice from you must include your name, pertinent Account information, a brief description of the Claim and your contact information so that we may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Any Notice from PicMiiCrowdfunding.com must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com’s contact information, so that you may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Both you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.
11.3 MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION
Any unresolved controversy or Claim between you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Terms of Service and not resolved informally, except as (i) otherwise provided in this Agreement, or (ii) any such controversies or Claims arising out of either party’s intellectual property rights for which a provisional remedy or equitable relief is sought, shall be submitted to arbitration. You and PicMii each irrevocably submit all disputes arising under this agreement to arbitration in the City of Lancaster, State of Pennsylvania before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitrator shall be selected by application of the rules of the AAA, or by our mutual agreement. Each party shall be responsible for its own costs associated with the arbitration, except that the costs of the arbitrator shall be equally divided by the parties. The award issued by the arbitrator may be confirmed in a judgment by any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction. You and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com each consent to personal jurisdiction for any equitable action sought in any court of Lancaster County, State of Pennsylvania, having subject matter jurisdiction. You agree that this dispute process is the EXCLUSIVE method of resolving all such disputes.
11.4 CHOICE OF LAW
This Agreement, the other Terms of Service, and any Claim will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless PicMiiCrowdfunding.com, our Affiliates, and our respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, and agents (each an “Indemnified Party”) from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses) arising from or relating to any claim, suit, proceeding, demand, or action brought by you or a third-party or other User against an Indemnified Party relating to: (a) use of the Site and the Service by you or your agents, including any payment obligations incurred through use of the Service; (b) failure to comply with the Terms of Service by you or your agents; (c) failure to comply with applicable law by you or your agents; (d) negligence, willful misconduct, or fraud by you or your agents; and (e) defamation, libel, violation of privacy rights, unfair competition, or infringement of Intellectual Property Rights or allegations thereof to the extent caused by you or your agents.
13. AGREEMENT TERM AND TERMINATION
13.1 EFFECTIVE DATE; METHOD OF TERMINATION
The Terms of Service, as amended from time to time, will become effective on the later of the Effective Date or on your first visit to the Site and will remain in effect for the duration of your use of the Site or Service. Upon termination of your User Agreement for any reason, except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement and all Terms of Service will be terminated, and you will not be permitted to use the Site or Service unless and until a replacement User Agreement and other Terms of Service are executed by both parties. You may provide written notice of termination to support@PicMiiCrowdfunding.com. We may provide written notice of termination to your email address on file.

Without limiting any other provisions of the Terms of Service, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release you or PicMiiCrowdfunding.com from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination. Those portions of the Terms of Service necessary to implement the foregoing survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.
13.2 ACCOUNT SUSPENSION, REVOCATION OR CLOSURE
(a) Without limiting PicMiiCrowdfunding.com’s other rights or remedies, we may temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or permanently revoke your access to the Site and refuse to provide any or all Service to you if: (i) you breach the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement, the User Agreement or other parts of the Terms of Service; (ii) we suspect or become aware that you have provided false or misleading information to us; or (iii) we believe, in our sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, our Users, or PicMiiCrowdfunding.com or our Affiliates or may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the User community or may involve illicit activity. If your Account is suspended or closed, you may not use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without PicMiiCrowdfunding.com’s prior written consent. If you attempt to use the Site under a different Account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available bank account or charge or debit card or other Payment Method you have provided to pay for any amounts owed by you to the extent permitted by applicable law.
(b) If your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files, and other material you keep on the Site.

However, you understand that any closure of your Account may involve deletion of any content stored in your Account for which PicMiiCrowdfunding.com will have no liability whatsoever.
13.3 CONSEQUENCES OF AGREEMENT TERMINATION
(a) Termination of this Agreement and/or closing of your Account will not relieve you of the requirement to pay Fees incurred before termination of this Agreement, which Fees, together with any applicable taxes, you hereby authorize PicMiiCrowdfunding.com to charge to your financial account or credit or debit card pursuant to Section 5 of this Agreement (Payment Terms).
(b) Except as otherwise required by applicable law, we will notify you if we close your Account, unless we believe, in our sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage.
After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement and the other Terms of Service that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance after the Agreement terminates or expires will survive and continue in full force and effect. For example, the provisions protecting Confidential Information, requiring arbitration, protecting intellectual property, indemnification, payment of Fees, reimbursement and setting forth limitations of liability each, by their nature, contemplate performance or observance after this Agreement terminates.
14.1 ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This Agreement, together with the User Agreement and other Terms of Service, sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and PicMiiCrowdfunding.com relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between you and us, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof and thereof. The section headings in the Terms of Service are included for ease of reference only and have no binding effect. Even though PicMiiCrowdfunding.com drafted the Terms of Service, you represent that you had ample time to review and decide whether to agree to the Terms of Service. If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation of the Terms of Service arises, no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring you or PicMiiCrowdfunding.com because of the authorship of any provision of the Terms of Service.
14.2 SIDE AGREEMENTS
The terms and conditions of this Agreement and the other Terms of Service will govern and supersede any term or condition in any previous agreement or subsequent side agreement that purports to expand PicMiiCrowdfunding.com’s obligations or restrict PicMiiCrowdfunding.com’s rights under the Terms of Service.
You will not violate any applicable foreign, federal, state, or local laws or third-party rights on or related to the Site or Service.

This Section 14.4 (Modifications) does not apply to amendments to the Terms of Service posted by PicMiiCrowdfunding.com to the Site from time to time.
14.5 NO WAIVER
The failure or delay of either party to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and will in no way affect that party’s right to later enforce or exercise it, unless such party issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorized representative of such party.
User shall not assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the written consent of PicMii in the form of a written instrument (and, for the purposes of this section, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications such as email and electronic notices).

Subject to the foregoing restrictions, the Terms of Service will inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement or the other Terms of Service is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
14.8 FORCE MAJEURE
The parties to this Agreement will not be responsible for the failure to perform or any delay in performance of any obligation hereunder due to labor disturbances, accidents, fires, floods, telecommunications or Internet failures, epidemics, pandemics, strikes, wars, riots, rebellions, insurrections, blockades, acts of government, governmental requirements and regulations or restrictions imposed by law or any other similar conditions beyond the reasonable control of such party. The time for performance of such party will be extended by the period of such delay. Irrespective of any extension of time, if an event of Force Majeure occurs and its effect continues for a period of 60 days, either the party may give to the other a 30-day notice of termination. If, at the end of the 30-day period, the effect of the Force Majeure continues, the Agreement and the other Terms of Service will terminate.
14.9 COMMUNICATIONS DECENCY ACT
We are not liable for any defamatory Content posted on the Site by any third party.

If you are considering attempting to circumvent these defenses by filing suit against us in another country for Content that a third party has posted to the Site, we recommend that you review the Securing the Protection of our Enduring and Established Constitutional Heritage (SPEECH) Act as passed by the United States Congress, which makes foreign libel judgments unenforceable in U.S. courts unless those judgments comply with the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
