SPPN.TV may have no control over the content, operations, policies, terms, or other elements of Third-Party Sites, and SPPN.TV does not assume any obligation to review any Third-Party Sites. SPPN.TV does not endorse, approve, or sponsor any Third-Party Sites, or any third-party content, advertising, information, materials, products, or services. Furthermore, SPPN.TV is not responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained by or advertised at such sites. Finally, SPPN.TV will under no circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or special loss or other damage, whether arising from negligence, breach of contract, defamation, infringement of copyright or other intellectual property rights, caused by the exhibition, distribution or exploitation of any information or content contained within these Third-Party Sites. Any activities you engage in connection with any of the same are subject to the privacy and other policies, terms and conditions of use and/or sale, and rules issued by the operator of the Third-Party Sites.

B. Dealings with Third Parties. Any interactions, correspondence, transactions, and other dealings that you have with any third parties found on or through the Service (including on or via Third-Party Sites or advertisements) are solely between you and the third party (including issues related to the content of third-party advertisements, payments, delivery of goods, warranties (including product warranties), privacy and data security, and the like). SPPN.TV disclaims all liability in connection therewith.
Certain portions of this Section 8 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and SPPN.TV agree that we intend that this Section 8 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 8 can only be amended by mutual agreement.
A. First – Try To Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of SPPN.TV ’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute,” which includes those actions set forth in Section 8.D), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 8.A. Your notice to us must be sent to:
C/O Ada’s Bail Bonding, Registered Agent
1330 Leyden Street, Suite 101
Denver, CO 80220
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, SPPN.TV and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or SPPN.TV to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and SPPN.TV, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
B. Forums For Alternative Dispute Resolution
If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute, SPPN.TV agrees to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this Paragraph 8, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart 8(B)(iv); and 8F. Furthermore, this Paragraph 8 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. (ii) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act. (iii) Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and SPPN.TV ; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission. (iv) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart 8(F) below, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart 8(F) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor SPPN.TV shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
C. Limited Time To File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 8.A) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES – OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
D. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 8 will not apply to any legal action taken by SPPN.TV to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User-Generated Content and/or SPPN.TV’s intellectual property rights (including such SPPN.TV may claim that may be in dispute), SPPN.TV’s operations, and/or SPPN.TV’s products or services.
E. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded From Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section 8.G.
F. No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitration or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.
G. Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section 8.B, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in Los Angeles, California. Accordingly, you and SPPN.TV consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.

BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES, SPPN.TV ’S LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE LAW OF SUCH JURISDICTION. IN ADDITION, BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

ACCORDINGLY, EACH TIME YOU SIGN IN TO OR OTHERWISE USE THE SERVICE YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH US ON THE THEN APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF OTHER TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THE SERVICE (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER OF NOTICE WHICH WE ELECT), AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR GOING FORWARD AGREEMENT TO THE OTHER TERMS FOR YOUR NEW USE AND TRANSACTIONS. In the event any notice to you of new, revised or additional terms is determined by a tribunal to be insufficient, the prior agreement shall continue until sufficient notice to establish a new agreement occurs. You should frequently check the Site, and the e-mail you provided to us for notices, all of which you agree are reasonable manners of providing you notice. You can reject any new, revised or additional Terms by discontinuing use of the Service and related services.
