Service; (b) the FlashFrame Content; (c) User Content; (d) your use of, inability to use, or the performance of the Service; (e) any action taken in

damages, whether in an action of contract, negligence, strict liability or tort (including, without limitation, whether caused in whole or in part by
negligence, acts of god, telecommunications failure, or theft or destruction of the Service). In no event will the FlashFrame Parties be liable to you or
anyone else for loss, damage or injury, including, without limitation, death or personal injury. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of

FlashFrame is not responsible for the actions, content, information, or data of third parties, and you release us, our directors, officers, employees, and agents from any claims and damages, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any claim you have against any such third parties.

between you and FlashFrame (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with FlashFrame, including without

expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's
rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor FlashFrame will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims
covered by this agreement. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated
claims involving another person's account, if FlashFrame is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal
Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of
filing the case, then either FlashFrame or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services.
Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law
You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor FlashFrame can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding.

You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your FlashFrame account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.

This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with FlashFrame.
Time limitation on claims.
