The Application may not be exported and persons or entities who access or use the Platform from other jurisdictions are obligated to comply with United States and local laws and regulations. You are not permitted to use the Platform or post any Home if you are, or the Home is situated in a jurisdiction that the United States has an embargo against or has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country, or if you are included on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Denied Person's List or Entity List.

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.
You agree that: (i) the Platform will be deemed to be solely based in the State of Colorado and the United States of America; and (ii) the Platform will be deemed to be a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over SideDoor in jurisdictions other than the State of Colorado.

You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Denver County, Denver, Colorado or a United States District Court, located in Denver, Colorado for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's intellectual property rights, as set forth in the "Arbitration" section below. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
If any dispute arises between you and SideDoor, you agree to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute informally prior to filing any cause of action against SideDoor. If you and SideDoor are unable to resolve the dispute informally, you agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Platform (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect (the “AAA Rules”) and except as modified by this "Arbitration" Section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling 800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. Notwithstanding the above, each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of any intellectual property rights.
Unless otherwise directed by SideDoor, the arbitration will be conducted in English and held in Denver, Colorado before a single arbitrator mutually agreed to by the parties, or by the AAA if the parties are unable to select an arbitrator within seven (7) days of the filing of the demand for arbitration. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date that the party who initiates the arbitration provides the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration in compliance with the AAA Rules (Demand for Arbitration form , or for California residents.) Each party will be responsible for paying their own filing fees, arbitrator fees and other costs in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. The prevailing party will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and costs, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA Rules.
By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that all claims must be brought in your individual capacity and that you are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or similar proceeding. Further, unless SideDoor otherwise agrees in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Arbitration" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Arbitration" section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
The provisions of this "Arbitration" section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If you feel that any User engaged in inappropriate behavior or acted illegally, you should immediately report such person to law enforcement authorities. In addition, please also notify SideDoor by emailing us with your police station and report number at email@example.com. Your report to us will not obligate us to take any action beyond that required by law (if any) or cause us to incur any liability to you.
This Agreement constitutes the entire and exclusive agreement between SideDoor and you regarding the Platform, Content, and any Postings, bookings or Licenses made through the Platform, and supersedes any prior agreements between you and SideDoor with respect to the same.

This Agreement and any agreements, rights and licenses created or granted herein may not be transferred or assigned by You, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without SideDoor's prior written consent. Any attempted transfer or assignment without such consent will be null and void. SideDoor may assign or transfer this Agreement in its sole discretion, without restriction.

SideDoor is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email or physical address you provide us.
The failure of SideDoor to enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of such right or provision. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under this Agreement will be without prejudice to its other remedies under this Agreement or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Platform or this Agreement, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this Agreement and any notice provided in electronic form hereunder, will be admissible in administrative or judicial proceedings to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents or records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Whenever this Agreement provides that SideDoor has a certain right, that right is absolute and you intend that SideDoor's exercise of that right will not be subject to any limitation or review.
