Modern Ritual reserves the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Modern Ritual and the other Modern Ritual Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE UNDER CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542 AS WELL AS ANY OTHER STATUTE OR COMMON LAW PRINCIPLES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE LIMIT THE COVERAGE OF THIS RELEASE TO INCLUDE ONLY THOSE CLAIMS WHICH YOU MAY KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN YOUR FAVOR AT THE TIME OF AGREEING TO THIS RELEASE.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH MODERN RITUAL AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
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 17 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 Modern Ritual agree (a) to waive your and Modern Ritual’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, or the Website, Portal, Online Store, Products, and Services, resolved in a court, and (b) to waive your and Modern Ritual’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Modern Ritual 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).
You and Modern Ritual agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Website, Portal, Online Store, Products, and Services is personal to you and Modern Ritual, 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 Modern Ritual 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 Modern Ritual 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. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.
You and Modern Ritual agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 29 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.
You and Modern Ritual 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 Modern Ritual shall be sent by certified mail or courier to P.O. Box 146; 510 Meadowmont Village Circle, Chapel Hill, NC 27517, United States. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Modern Ritual Account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with Section 13, and will include (d) our name, postal address, telephone number, and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (e) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (f) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and Modern Ritual 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 Modern Ritual may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 29, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 29.1, file a claim in court.
EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO A VIOLATION OF SECTION 17 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 MODERN RITUAL AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE MUST BE COMMENCED OR FILED BY YOU OR MODERN RITUAL WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE THE DISPUTE AROSE, OTHERWISE THE UNDERLYING CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED (WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND MODERN RITUAL WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT SUCH CLAIM REGARDING THE DISPUTE). You and Modern Ritual agree that (a) any arbitration will occur in the State of Delaware, New Castle County, (b) 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 (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Delaware and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of Delaware, New Castle, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
As limited by the FAA, these Terms, and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) 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 (b) 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. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 29, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation, and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained in this Section 29, are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by the arbitrator.
The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS, or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
If any term, clause, or provision of this Section 29 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 29 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 29.2 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted these Terms by writing to: email@example.com. 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. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 30.
These Terms and our relationship with you will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its choice of laws rules. You and Modern Ritual each irrevocably agree that any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved on an individual basis exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, or the state courts located in New Castle County, Delaware. You and Modern Ritual each irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of these courts and waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction by these courts and to this venue. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, you and Modern Ritual agree that Modern Ritual may commence and maintain an action or proceeding seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. If any provision of these 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.

31.5. Integration Clause

If there is any conflict between the Terms and a separate signed written agreement between you and us relating to our Website or the Modern Ritual Content, the signed written agreement will control.
31.6. Waiver and Severability of Terms
The failure by you or us to enforce any provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide the matter, rules that any provision of the Terms is invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be removed from the Terms or reformed by the court and given effect so as to best accomplish the essential purpose of the invalid or unenforceable provision, and all of the other provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable. Nothing contained in these Terms will limit the ability of a party to seek an injunction or other equitable relief without posting any bond.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
31.8. Statute of Limitations
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
