You agree and must at all times indemnify, defend and hold Singular Sound and its third party suppliers or licensors, each of our and their business partners and each of our and their respective employees, officers, directors and representatives (each an “Indemnitee” and collectively the “Indemnitees”), harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and court costs) suffered or incurred by any of the Indemnitees as a result of any third party claim, action, suit, or proceeding arising out of or incident to (i) any Customer or other person’s use of or access to the Site in a manner not authorized by these Terms, or in violation of any applicable laws, (ii) Content including any claim involving infringement or misappropriation of third party rights or the use, development, design, manufacture, production, advertising, promotion or marketing of Customer Content, (iii) any breach by Customer or any other person of any term or condition of these Terms, including without limitation, any representation and warranty hereunder, or (iv) any act, omission or misconduct of Customer or any other person using or accessing the Site.
We will promptly notify you of any claim which we become aware of and which we believe to be subject to indemnification under this Section; provided that our failure to promptly notify you shall not affect your indemnification obligations hereunder except to the extent that our failure to promptly notify you materially prejudices your ability to defend the claim. At our option, you will have the right to defend against any such claim(s) with counsel of your own choosing (subject to a conflicts assessment), and to settle such claim as you deem appropriate, provided that you (nor any Person acting on your behalf) may enter into any settlement without Singular Sound’s prior written consent (which may be conditioned or withheld in our sole and absolute discretion) and provided that we may, at any time, elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of any claim.
- Dispute Resolution
If you reside in the United States, you and Singular Sound agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other Intellectual Property Rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Singular Sound are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Singular Sound otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
- Rules and Governing Law
This agreement to arbitrate evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Texas and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
- Location and Procedure
Unless you and Singular Sound otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Florida, United States. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Singular Sound submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Singular Sound changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Singular Sound’s email to you notifying you of such change.

- Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and your use of the Site and Singular Sound Services will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Miami-Dade County, Florida or a United States District Court, Southern District of Florida located in Miami, Florida for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision.
- Waiver and Enforceability
The failure of Singular Sound to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Singular Sound. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
- Third Party Beneficiary
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the payment card networks are third party beneficiaries of these Terms for purposes of enforcing provisions related to payments, but that their consent or agreement is not necessary for any changes or modifications to these Terms.
