By pressing the “Confirm Order” button, you will be deemed to have accepted making such payment (including any applicable taxes) by redeeming your LITT Cash, and you authorize LITT Global to reduce the amount of LITT Cash in your LITT Wallet by the value of your order. If your LITT Wallet contains an insufficient amount of LITT Cash to process your payment, LITT Global will not be required to process your order. You may use LITT Cash to directly redeem goods or services from some participating vendors.

Upon redeeming your LITT Points by converting them into LITT Cash, your LITT Wallet will be updated to reflect the redeemed LITT Points as LITT Cash. LITT Cash acquired pursuant to this Section 6.2 is deemed to be acquired on the date on which it appears in your LITT Wallet.

LITT Global does not endorse any goods or services provided by participating Vendors and LITT Global will not be responsible or liable for any goods or services of participating Vendors under any circumstances. In the event that LITT Global cancels or discontinues any portion of the Services and affects the your ability to use or redeem a Gift Voucher that was purchased using your personal credit card, LITT Global will use commercially-reasonable efforts to contact you (using the contact information linked to your Account) and will refund the outstanding value of the Gift Voucher to the extent that your ability to use that Gift Voucher has been affected. If, after using commercially-reasonable efforts, LITT Global has been unable to contact you or refund the outstanding value of the Gift Voucher, that Gift Voucher may be forfeited.
6.4. LITT Deals and Giveaways
a. Surprises, offers, discounts, competitions or incentive programs offered by LITT Global, LITT Global’s affiliates, participating Vendors, or other third parties (collectively, “LITT Deals and Giveaways”) may, from time to time, be available to Users through the Services. The nature, quantity, availability, frequency, and award of LITT Deals and Giveaways are in LITT Global’s sole and absolute discretion. By using the Services, you acknowledge that you do not have any express right or entitlement to participate in or to be offered any LITT Deals and Giveaways.
b. You acknowledge that the availability of LITT Deals and Giveaways will depend on factors such as the time, the day of the week, and your location. The location of a LITT Deal and Giveaway is set by geofencing technology utilized by the Services, which may establish a virtual zone around certain participating Vendors from time to time (“Virtual Zone”). By using the Services, you consent to: (i) your device’s location data being used and accessed by LITT Global; and (ii) receiving notifications from the Services about LITT Deals and Giveaways when you enter into a Virtual Zone. You acknowledge that, if you do not allow LITT Global to use and access your device’s location data, you will not be able to view or be offered LITT Deals and Giveaways.
c. In addition to the terms of this User Agreement, LITT Deals and Giveaways may be subject to particular terms and conditions (“Deals and Giveaways Terms”) that will be communicated to you by LITT Global or participating Vendors at the time when the LITT Deals and Giveaways become available. By participating in any LITT Deals and Giveaways, you will become subject to those Deals and Giveaways Terms. LITT Global urges you to carefully read the Deals and Giveaways Terms before participating in any LITT Deals and Giveaways. You acknowledge that Deals and Giveaways Terms are set by the applicable participating Vendor, and LITT Global is not involved in the preparation or implementation of any Deals and Giveaways Terms. LITT Global will not be liable in any way in connection with Deals and Giveaways Terms.
d. To redeem a LITT Deal and Giveaway, you must follow the instructions provided by LITT Global or the relevant participating Vendor on the Services. Any costs that you may incur in connection with redeeming LITT Deals and Giveaways (i.e., traveling to and from a participating Vendor’s location) are your responsibility. Travel to a participating Vendor’s location is entirely at your own risk. You must redeem a LITT Deal and Giveaway within the timeframe set forth in the Deals and Giveaways Terms for the applicable LITT Deal and Giveaway. If not redeemed within the stated timeframe, the LITT Deal and Giveaway will expire. LITT Deals and Giveaways may be subject to certain limitations or conditions, a Member’s eligibility, time of day, date, availability at a particular participating Vendor’s location, age restrictions, or other similar factors. Subject to applicable law, these conditions and limitations are subject to change without notice.
6.5. LITT Scratch It & Win
a. The opportunity to win bonus LITT Points may, from time to time, be offered to Members that view certain Content (i.e., advertisements) or complete other qualifying activities.
b. Viewing Content or otherwise using the Services does not give you ownership of or legal claim to any LITT Points or LITT Cash offered in connection with the LITT Scratch It & Win feature. LITT Global makes no representations, warranties, or guarantees concerning the probability that qualifying Members will acquire bonus LITT Points through LITT Scratch It & Win, including, but not limited to, representations that Members will acquire a certain number of LITT Points through a LITT Scratch It & Win offer or that Members will win any bonus LITT Points at all through a LITT Scratch It & Win offer.
c. No purchases are necessary for Members to participate in LITT Scratch It & Win or acquire LITT Points through a LITT Scratch It & Win Offer.
7. PURCHASES AND PAYMENT
7.1. Any payments that you make on the Services, excluding those that are made using LITT Cash, are to be made via credit card. Where you elect to make a payment using a credit card, a third-party processor engaged by LITT Global will process your payment.
7.2. Once you press the “Confirm Order” button, LITT Global’s third-party processor will process your payment and any applicable taxes and service charges as itemized on the final screen (“Accepted Amount”). By pressing the “Confirm Order” button, you will be deemed to have accepted making such payment using your nominated credit card, and you authorize LITT Global’s third-party processor to debit the Accepted Amount from your nominated credit card. We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving credit cards are processed in a timely manner by our third-party payment processor, but we make no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing, as that timing is dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system or the U.S. or international mail service.
7.3. If your designated credit card is declined by your financial institution, LITT Global or its third-party processor will not be required to fulfil your order. In these cases, LITT Global may decide to contact you to make alternative payment arrangements. LITT Global may decide at any time not to accept payment from you for any reason. If LITT Global declines to accept payment, LITT Global will not process your order and may not contact you to inform you that your order will not be processed. LITT Global will not process any order until the payment has been received and will not be liable for any delay from banking delays or misdirected payments. LITT Global may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to any purchase you make on the Services to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you have enough funds available on the credit card for which you provided LITT Global with details to make any payments via the Services.
a. Generally, all charges for purchases are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially-used periods, except if the laws applicable in your jurisdiction provide for refunds.
b. In addition to canceling, you must request a refund to receive one.
i. If you subscribed using your Apple ID, refunds are handled by Apple, not LITT Global. To request a refund, go to iTunes, click on your Apple ID, select “Purchase history,” find the transaction and hit “Report Problem.” You can also submit a request at https://getsupport.apple.com.
ii. For all other purchases: please contact customer support with your order number. (You can find the order number in the order confirmation email or, if you purchased from the Google Play Store, by logging in to Google Wallet).
a. The payments addressed in this section do not include any Sales Tax (as defined herein) that may be due in connection with any products, features, or services offered or provided under this User Agreement. If we determine that we have a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this User Agreement, we will collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments addressed in this section.
b. If any products, features, or services, or payments for the same, under this User Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to us, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority.
c. As used herein, “Sales Tax” means any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
8. EXTERNAL SERVICES AND THIRD-PARTY CONTENT
8.1. Third-Party Systems and App Stores
The following additional terms and conditions apply to you if you download the App from a third-party platform such as the Apple App Store and Google Play Store (“Third-Party Store”). To the extent that the other terms of this User Agreement are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of this section, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in this section will apply, but solely with respect to the App and the Third-Party Store. You acknowledge and agree that:
a. This User Agreement is concluded solely between you and LITT Global, not with the providers of any Third-Party Store, and LITT Global (not the Third-Party Store providers) is solely responsible for the App and the content thereof. To the extent that this User Agreement provides usage rules for the App that are less restrictive or in conflict with the applicable terms of service of the Third- Party Store from which you obtain the App, the more restrictive or conflicting terms of the Third- Party Store will take precedence and will apply.
b. The Third-Party Store provider has no obligation whatsoever to provide any maintenance and support services with respect to the App. LITT Global is solely responsible for any product warranties, whether express or implied by law, to the extent not effectively disclaimed. The Third-Party Store provider will have no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our sole responsibility.
c. LITT Global, not the Third-Party Store provider, is responsible for addressing any claims that you or any third party may have relating to the App or your possession or use of the App, including, but not limited to: (1) product liability claims; (2) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; (3) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation; or (4) intellectual property infringement claims.
d. The Third-Party Store provider and its subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of this User Agreement, and, upon your acceptance of this User Agreement, the Third-Party Store provider from whom you obtained the App will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this User Agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
e. In the event of a conflict between a Third-Party Store’s or mobile carrier’s applicable terms and conditions and this User Agreement, the terms and conditions of the Third-Party Store or mobile carrier will govern and control. We are not responsible, and have no liability whatsoever, for third-party goods or services you obtain through a Third-Party Store or mobile carrier. We encourage you to conduct whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online transaction with any of these third parties.
8.2. Third-Party Links and Services
a. LITT Global may provide tools through the Services that enable you to export information, including User Content, to third-party services, including through features that allow you to link your Account on LITT Global with an account on the third-party service or through our implementation of third-party buttons. By using one of these tools, you agree that LITT Global may transfer that information to the applicable third-party service. Third-party services are not under LITT Global’s control, and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, LITT Global is not responsible for any third-party service’s use of your exported information.
b. If you use a service, feature, or functionality that is operated by a third party and made available through the Services (including services we jointly offer with the third party), each party’s terms will govern the respective party’s relationship with you. LITT Global is not responsible or liable for a third party’s terms or actions taken under the third party’s terms.
c. Certain features of the Services may require access to and use of your device’s map features or functionality, such as Google Maps or other External Services. Any use of those features will be subject to the terms and conditions applicable to such External Services. By using the Services, you may also be required to agree to the end-user terms for any such third-party services. It is your sole responsibility to review the terms and conditions that apply to the third-party services before using those services in conjunction with the Services. This User Agreement does not apply to any activities conducted via third-party services.
e. Additionally, your dealings with or participation in promotions of advertisers found on the Services, including payment and delivery of goods, and any other terms (such as warranties) are solely between you and such advertisers. You agree that we will not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort relating to your dealings with such advertisers.
f. Some links to third-party sites may be monetized by third-party services. LITT Global may receive compensation for its role in the purchasing process by referring prospective purchasers to products on third-party sites. This compensation does not affect the final purchase price of such products. This referral disclosure is provided in accordance with the United States Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR § 255.5.
8.3. Third-Party Products
a. Certain product descriptions on the Services are created by third-party merchants or suppliers. As a result, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other third-party content on the Services are in any way accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. LITT Global makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of descriptions displayed anywhere on the Services, or regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services (including, without limitation, the actual size, quality, color, texture, or results of use of such products or services). If a product offered on the Services is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
b. We cannot guarantee availability of any products or services listed on the Services. Certain prices do not include shipping and handling, taxes, applicable tariffs, and other charges associated with the purchase of a product, which may be added to the purchase price and billed to you at the time of purchase. LITT Global displays suggested retail prices for goods or services offered on the Services based on pricing information provided by Vendors or other merchants and we make no promises about the reliability or accuracy of any such information listed on the Services.
c. A product purchased from any Vendor through the Services is governed by and subject to that Vendor’s policies, including applicable exchange and shipping policies. You acknowledge and agree that we are not agents of any Vendor and that Vendors operate independently and are not under LITT Global’s control. Accordingly, your participation in offers or promotions of, or correspondence with, any Vendor is solely between you and that Vendor. We do not assume any liability, obligation, or responsibility for any part of such correspondence, offer or promotion, including, without limitation, the withdrawal or modification of any such offer or promotion. LITT Global is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any Vendor or for any Vendor’s withdrawal from the Services. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides, in relevant part: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
d. Please note that LITT Global has no responsibility for the fulfilment of any orders. You should directly contact the Vendor from whom you have bought an item regarding any questions about the delivery, refund, exchange, or return of any product you purchase.
8.4. External Service Purchases
a. When making a purchase on the Services, you may have the option to pay through an external service and your external service account will be charged for the purchase in accordance with the terms disclosed to you at the time of purchase and the general terms applicable to your external service account. Some external services may charge you sales tax, depending on where you live, which may change from time to time.
b. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your external service account, we may terminate your Account immediately, at our sole discretion. We will retain all funds charged to your external service account until you cancel your subscription through your external service account. Certain Users may be entitled to request a refund.

10.1. The following disclaimers are made on behalf of LITT Global, its officers, employees, directors, shareholders, affiliates, agents, and licensors (collectively, the “Covered Parties”).
10.2. THE SERVICES AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. LITT GLOBAL DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATING TO THE SERVICES AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING: (a) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (b) ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE. LITT GLOBAL DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES, OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICES, WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, AND LITT GLOBAL DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THOSE ISSUES WILL BE CORRECTED.
10.3. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THE SERVICES OR THE COVERED PARTIES, OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING ANY OF THE COVERED PARTIES OR THE SERVICES THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE SERVICES AND YOUR DEALING WITH ANY OTHER USERS. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU USE ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY (INCLUDING YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES) OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, INCLUDING USER CONTENT. THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. LITT Global does not disclaim any warranty or other right that LITT Global is prohibited from disclaiming under applicable law.
10.4. You are responsible for the use of your Account and LITT Global expressly disclaims any liability arising from the unauthorized use of your Account.

If we decide to conduct any screening through a consumer reporting agency, you hereby authorize us to obtain and use a consumer report about you to determine your eligibility under the terms of this User Agreement.
10.6. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS. ALWAYS USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT AND TAKE APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONS. COMMUNICATIONS RECEIVED THROUGH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING AUTOMATIC NOTIFICATIONS SENT BY LITT GLOBAL, MAY RESULT FROM USERS ENGAGING WITH THE SERVICES FOR IMPROPER PURPOSES, INCLUDING FRAUD, ABUSE, HARASSMENT, OR OTHER SUCH IMPROPER BEHAVIOR. YOU AGREE TO USE CAUTION IN ALL INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS, PARTICULARLY IF YOU DECIDE TO COMMUNICATE OUTSIDE OF THE SERVICES OR MEET IN PERSON.
10.7. USERS ARE NOT COVERED PARTIES WITHIN THE MEANING OF THIS AGREEMENT. WE DO NOT CONTROL OR HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL USERS, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY APPLICABLE SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS, OR AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE STATE OR FEDERAL LAW, REGULATION, OR ORDINANCE.
11. INDEMNITY; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
a. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you are responsible for your use of the Services, and you will defend and indemnify the Covered Parties from and against every claim brought by a third party, and any related liability, damage, loss, and expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or connected with: (i) your unauthorized use of, or misuse of, the Service; (ii) your violation of any portion of this User Agreement, any representation, warranty, or agreement referenced in this User Agreement, or any applicable law or regulation; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including any intellectual property right or publicity, confidentiality, other property, or privacy right; or (iv) any dispute or issue between you and any third party. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you (without limiting your indemnification obligations with respect to that matter), and in that case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of those claims.
b. LITT Global reserves the right, at its sole discretion and expense, to assume the exclusive defense of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with the us in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Covered Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression, or omission.
11.2. Limitation of Liability
a. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COVERED PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR ANY OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSS) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF, OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE SERVICES OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT ON THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT ANY LITT GLOBAL ENTITY HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGE.
b. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE COVERED PARTIES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR ANY INABILITY TO USE ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES OR OTHERWISE UNDER THIS AGREMEENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, IS LIMITED TO $100.
c. EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
12. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
a. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND LITT GLOBAL ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND LITT GLOBAL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Further, unless both you and LITT Global agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
b. In the interest of resolving disputes in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Sections 12.3 and 12.5, you and LITT Global agree that every dispute arising in connection with this User Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this User Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this User Agreement.
c. Any arbitration between you and LITT Global will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting LITT Global. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
d. If LITT Global makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to LITT Global’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to LITT Global’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your Account with LITT Global will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
e. If any section or the entirety of this Section 12 is found to be unenforceable, or if LITT Global receives an Opt-Out Notice from you, then the entirety of this Section 12 will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 13.2 will govern any action arising out of or related to this User Agreement.
12.2. Governing Law
a. This User Agreement and any and all claims, disputes, or other legal proceedings by or between you or LITT Global, including, but not limited to, any such claims or disputes that are in any way related to or arising under this User Agreement or your access to or use of the Services, LITT Global websites or platforms, or the App, will be governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any conflict-of-laws principles that may otherwise provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
b. The parties agree that their arrangement under this User Agreement is in interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies to the construction of the arbitration provisions below. For any claim, dispute, or other legal proceeding not subject to the arbitration provisions below, the claim or dispute will be brought and litigated exclusively in the state courts located within Los Angeles County, California or the federal courts in the Central District of California, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes.
12.3. Exceptions to Arbitration
a. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section XX, nothing in this User Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
b. If, for some reason, the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this Dispute Resolution section cannot be enforced, then the entirety of this User Agreement to Arbitrate will not apply. Where this User Agreement to Arbitrate does not apply, the remainder of this User Agreement, and the Dispute Resolution section, will continue to apply.
12.4. Arbitration Procedure and Fees
a. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). LITT Global’s address for Notice is: LITT Global US Pty Ltd, 2511 Brigden Road, Pasadena, CA 91104. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or LITT Global may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or LITT Global must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by LITT Global in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, LITT Global will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $10,000.
b. If you commence arbitration in accordance with this User Agreement, LITT Global will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Los Angeles County, California, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse LITT Global for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
12.5. Opt-Out Procedure
a. If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section 12 within thirty (30) days after the date that you agree to this User Agreement by sending a notice to LITT Global US Pty Ltd, Attention: Legal Department – Arbitration Opt-Out, 2511 Brigden Road, Pasadena, CA 91104 that specifies: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the Service, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once LITT Global receives your Opt-Out Notice, this Section 12 will be void and any action arising out of this User Agreement will be resolved as set forth in Section 12. The remaining provisions of this User Agreement will not be affected by your Opt- Out Notice.
b. For your convenience, we are providing an Opt-Out Notice form that you can complete and mail to opt out of the User Agreement to Arbitrate. You must complete the Opt-Out Notice form by providing the information called for in the form, including your name, address (including street address, city, state and zip code), and the e-mail address(es) associated with the Account(s) to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective.
c. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate.
13.1. General Terms
a. If any clause or provision set forth in this User Agreement is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future law, the clause or provision will be deemed to be deleted without affecting the enforceability of all remaining clauses or provisions.
b.
