IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALMOST ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US ARE SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN THE ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER SECTION BELOW. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, OR TO BE PART OF A CLASS ACTION, TO RESOLVE THESE DISPUTES, AS EXPLAINED IN MORE DETAIL IN THAT SECTION. If you do not agree to all of the terms of the Agreement, you must not provide services, use or access any parts of the Service.
1. Agreement Terms
If you choose to perform the translation, transcription, audio description, media alternative and/or captioning services and deliver the translation, transcription, audio description, media alternative and/or captioning deliverables (“Deliverables”) as requested by the Ai-Media User, who may be referred to as the customer, from time to time (the “Services”), you will be subject to and you must read, understand and comply with these Terms of Service and the Agreement in whole. We ask that you please read the Agreement carefully to ensure you are comfortable with all of its terms and conditions.
Subject to the terms below and in the Agreement, we grant you a personal, non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Ai-Media Intellectual Property Rights, including access to the Service, to perform Services solely for purposes of the Service and as permitted by the features of the Service. Ai-Media reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the Ai-Media Content. You may not, and you may not permit others to, (a) reverse engineer, decompile, decode, decrypt, disassemble, or in any way derive source code from the Service; (b) modify, distribute, or create derivative works of the Service; (c) copy, distribute, publicly display, transmit, sell, rent, lease or otherwise exploit the Service; (d) use the Service for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement; (e) use the Service in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any Ai-Media server, or network(s) connect to any Ai-Media server, or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of any Ai-Media services; (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any Services, accounts, systems or networks connected to any Ai-Media server or any of the Services, through hacking, password mining or any other means. We reserve the right to terminate this License and close your account at any time at will, at any time for any reason or no reason, with or without notice to you. The License will also be terminated if you fail to comply with any term or condition of this Agreement. Upon termination by either party, you agree to destroy any software provided to you as part of the License.
You will need to establish an online account with Ai-Media. An Ai-Media online account gives you access to the Ai-Media Intellectual Property Rights and tools and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion which you may use per the instructions to perform the Services. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open an Ai-Media account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to Ai-Media with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.

As the only consideration payable with regard to the Services or this Agreement, the customer for whom you have performed the Services will pay you the fees less any fees payable to Ai-Media. The net fee payable to you for the provision of Services will be displayed to you on Ai-Media’s websites or platforms when you select Services to undertake, by accepting to undertake the performance of Services you agree to the net fee being the only consideration payable to you for completion of the Services, pursuant to the terms and conditions under these Terms of Service (which includes for clarity’s sake the Contractor Session Rules and Guidelines). Unless otherwise specifically agreed upon by Ai-Media in writing (and notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement), all activity relating to Services will be performed by and only by you or by employees of you and only those such employees who have been approved in writing in advance by Ai-Media. You agree that you will not (and will not permit others to) violate any agreement with or rights of any third party or, except as expressly authorized by Ai-Media in writing hereafter, use or disclose at any time your own or any third party’s confidential information or intellectual property in connection with the Services or otherwise for or on behalf of Ai-Media.

You shall not hold yourself out as an agent of Ai-Media at any time or on any medium.

11. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
a. Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act. Any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or any breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration conducted in the State of Delaware in accordance with the Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act. The award rendered by the arbitrators shall be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction thereof. b. Initial Dispute Resolution. Most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. Ai-Media and you each agree to use its best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with Ai-Media support department, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. To commence this procedure, you hereby agree to contact Ai-Media’s support department at onlinesupport at ai-media.tv, or Ai-Media may contact you using the last available information it has for you. c. Binding Arbitration. If Ai-Media and you do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, then both Ai-Media and you hereby agree to resolve by arbitration any and all controversies, claims, or disputes arising out of, relating to, or resulting from: (1) your consulting relationship with Ai-Media, (2) the termination of your contractor relationship with the Ai-Media, (3) the performance or breach of the Agreement, (4) any other aspect of the Agreement, including the classification of you as an independent contractor, or (5) without limiting the foregoing, any city, county, state or federal wage-hour law, unfair competition, compensation, breaks and rest periods, expense reimbursement, termination, harassment and claims arising under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (except for claims for employee benefits under any benefit plan sponsored by Ai-Media and covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or funded by insurance), Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, and state statutes, if any, addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other similar federal and state statutory and common law claims, in each case, by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in the State of Delaware, unless you and Ai-Media agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. d. Exclusions. The Agreement is intended to require arbitration of every claim or dispute that lawfully can be arbitrated, except for those claims and disputes which by the terms of the Agreement are expressly excluded from Section 11. The claims not covered by this Arbitration Provision are claims that are not arbitrable by law, which include claims under the California Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”) only for so long as PAGA claims are held to be not arbitrable by law by the California Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, or the United States Supreme Court. e. Filing Fee. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Ai-Media will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Ai-Media will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not seek more than US$75,000. Both Ai-Media and you hereby agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to award any remedies available under applicable law, and that the arbitrator shall award attorneys’ fees and costs to the prevailing party, except as prohibited by law. Both Ai-Media and you hereby understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. Ai-Media and you each further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. Whether or not you are a resident of the United States, arbitration shall be initiated and conducted in the State of Delaware, unless you and Ai-Media agree otherwise, and you and Ai-Media agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court the State of Delaware in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. While Ai-Media will not take any retaliatory action in response to any exercise of rights you may have under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, if any, Ai-Media shall not be precluded from moving to enforce its rights under the Federal Arbitration Act to compel arbitration on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. f. Class Action Waiver. Both Ai-Media and you hereby further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action (subject to the portion of Paragraph 11(d) above with respect to PAGA claims), and both Ai-Media and you each expressly waive its respective right to file a class action, seek relief on a class basis, or join or serve as a member of a class action. YOU AND AI-MEDIA 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. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class or representative basis, then this Section 11 shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the Parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. g. 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by this version of Section 11 by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to onlinesupport at ai-media.tv with the subject line, “ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the first date on or after 6 February, 2018 that you agree to any version of this Agreement that contains this version of Section 11. If you do not opt out, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this Section 11. You have the right to consult with counsel of your choice concerning this Section 11. You understand that you will not be subject to retaliation if you exercise your right to opt out of coverage under this Section 11. If you opt out of Section 11, Ai-Media also will not be bound by it in its disputes with you. h. Changes to this Section. Ai-Media will provide (60) days’ notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective on the sixtieth (60th) day, and will apply prospectively only to claims arising after the sixtieth (60th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on “Changes to This Section” is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from Section 11, and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section you agreed to.
12. Limitations to this Arbitration Agreement
Section 11 (Arbitration and Class Action Waiver) shall be limited as follows: a. Administrative Agencies. Claims may be brought before an administrative agency, but only to the extent law permits access to such an agency notwithstanding the existence of an agreement to arbitrate. Such administrative claims include without limitation claims or charges brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the National Labor Relations Board. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party’s obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration. This Arbitration Provision does not restrict my rights to engage in concerted activities under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. b. Dodd-Frank. Disputes that may not be subject to pre-dispute arbitration agreement as provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Public Law 111-203) are excluded from the coverage of Section 11. c. Intellectual Property Claims. Notwithstanding either Ai-Media’s or your decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either Ai-Media or you may bring an action in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights. d. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the Ai-Media’s or your decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either such party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
13. Third Party Websites
The Service may provide, or third parties may provide, links or other access to other sites and resources on the Internet. Ai-Media has no control over such sites and resources and Ai-Media is not responsible for and does not endorse such sites and resources. You further acknowledge and agree that Ai-Media will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, events, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource. Any dealings you have with third parties found while using the Service are between you and the third party, and you agree that Ai-Media is not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against any such third party.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “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.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
