In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that anything on our Services infringes any copyright that you own or control, you may notify our designated agent as follows:
Designated Agent: Legal Department Address:
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 E-Mail: email@example.com
Please see 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. Also, please note that if you knowingly misrepresent that any activity or material on our Services is infringing, you may be liable to us for certain costs and damages.
You agree to indemnify and hold Sidewalk and its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, agents, service providers harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees and court costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of User Content you submit, post or make available through the Services, your use of the Services, your violation of these Terms (including your breach of any of the representations and warranties herein), or your violation of any rights of another person. You also agree that Sidewalk will have control of the defense or settlement of any third-party claims subject to this indemnity. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Sidewalk or its affiliates.
We reserve the right to terminate your access to and use of the Services at any time for any reason whatsoever in our sole discretion, including if you are in breach of these Terms or applicable law. Upon termination of the Services, all User Content stored by us in connection with your use of the Services will be deleted. All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Sidewalk and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
You and Sidewalk agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Sidewalk and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Sidewalk seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Sidewalk seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Sidewalk waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services, including claims related to privacy and data security, (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, for any Dispute that you have against Sidewalk you agree to first contact Sidewalk and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Sidewalk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail addressed to Legal Department, Google (℅ Sidewalk Labs), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Sidewalk cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before a single arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in New York, New York. You and Sidewalk agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website (www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/) and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Sidewalk agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 15 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Sidewalk, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
You and Sidewalk agree that the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States sitting in New York, New York have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 15 by sending a written notice to Sidewalk by email at email@example.com or by certified mail addressed to Legal Department, Google (Sidewalk Labs), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 16.
If any portion of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 15 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 15; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 15 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 15 will be enforceable.
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your use of the Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of New York, except to the extent pre-empted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration under Section 16 or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of New York and the United States, respectively, sitting in New York, New York.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Sidewalk regarding your use of the Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and Sidewalk, provided however that these Terms do not otherwise affect any separate customer agreement entered into between the Customer and Sidewalk.
The failure of Sidewalk to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. We may supply different or additional terms in relation to some of our Services, and those different or additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services. If there is a conflict between these Terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict. Any references to “including” will be deemed to mean “including without limitation.”
