DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
MINDFUL OF THE HIGH COST OF LEGAL DISPUTES, NOT ONLY IN DOLLARS BUT ALSO IN TIME AND ENERGY, BOTH YOU AND SERVICEUP INC. AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS, YOUR VISIT TO THE SITE, OR TO ANY PURCHASE, TRANSACTION, RETURN OR OTHER INTERACTION WITH SERVICEUP (INCLUDING CLAIMS RELATING TO SERVICEUP’S ADVERTISEMENTS AND DISCLOSURES, EMAIL AND MOBILE SMS MESSAGES SENT BY SERVICEUP, OR SERVICEUP’S COLLECTION OR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION) (“DISPUTE”) SHALL BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT. THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO THIS AGREEMENT.

IF WE ARE UNABLE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT TO RESOLVE THE CLAIM WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE NOTICE IS SENT, EITHER PARTY MAY COMMENCE ARBITRATION.
IF YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE ANY SERVICEUP INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT (AS DEFINED BELOW), WE MAY BRING SUIT IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. YOU CONSENT TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN THESE COURTS.

ServiceUp respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users and visitors to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide ServiceUp with the following information required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the DMCA, 17 U.S.C. § 512 (“DMCA”). Please be advised that to be effective, the Notice must include ALL of the following:
a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
identification of the copyright work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party;
a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law and a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Notices of claimed copyright infringement and counter-notices should be directed to:
20 N Santa Cruz Ave Suite A
Los Gatos, CA 95030
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
(For both mail and email notices, please include “Notice of Infringement” in the subject line.)
Upon receipt of notices complying with the DMCA, ServiceUp will act to remove or disable access to any material found to be infringing or found to be the subject of infringing activity and will act to remove or disable access to any reference or link to material or activity that is found to be infringing.
It is often difficult to determine if your intellectual property rights have been violated. We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter. We may give you notice that we have removed or disabled access to certain content or material. If you receive such a notice, you may provide counter-notification in writing to the designated agent that includes the information below. To be effective, the counter-notification must be a written communication that includes the following:
your physical or electronic signature;
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;
statement from you under the penalty of perjury that you have a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
your name, physical address and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of a U.S. Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your physical address is located, or if your physical address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which ServiceUp may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of allegedly infringing material or an agent of such person.
