Terms of Service

Last updated: September 18, 2022

Welcome! Collab.Land is a community tool available for your Discord and Telegram that helps get your fellow token holders together. We begin with the initial verification, confirming that each potential member of your community possesses the required token(s) to join and participate in your community, and follow up with routine checks to confirm they maintain those requirements during the course of their participation.

These Terms of Service (these "Terms) set forth our legal obligations to each other. They govern your access to and use of our Services. Please reach these Terms carefully before accessing our Services. By accessing and using our Services, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms and our Privacy Policy, found at https://collab.land/privacy, incorporated herein by reference.

Services provided "as is":

We work hard to provide the Services in a dependable and consistent manner, but there are certain aspects of our provision of the Services that we cannot guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ABRIDGED INC., ITS AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. THE LAWS OF CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS OR STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES. TO THE EXTENT SUCH WARRANTIES CANNOT BE DISCLAIMED UNDER THE LAWS OF YOUR JURISDICTION, WE LIMIT THE DURATION AND REMEDIES OF SUCH WARRANTIES TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER THOSE LAWS.This warranty disclaimer does not affect any consumer rights you might have under applicable law, including the legal guarantee in certain places such as the European Union that products and services must comply with these Terms and your rights in case of non-conformity of a product or service.

Governing law and jurisdiction. The Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and Colorado law will apply to these Terms and any disputes related to these Terms or our Services, regardless of conflict of laws rules. Any of these disputes that are not subject to arbitration will be resolved exclusively in the state or federal courts in Denver, Colorado, and you and Collab.Land both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in these courts.

Agreement to arbitrate:

IF YOU'RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:You and Collab.Land agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. Except for the circumstances described below, if we cannot resolve a dispute informally, you and Collab.Land agree to resolve any dispute or claim relating to these Terms or our Services through final and binding arbitration in the U.S. state where you reside.

Arbitration rules:

The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator, governed by these terms and the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class or representative actions (the "JAMS Rules"). These Terms will govern if there is a conflict between these Terms and the JAMS Rules. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding on you and Collab.Land, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Collab.Land agree that dispositive motions will be allowed in the arbitration. Except as explicitly set forth in this arbitration section, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration, and any dispute regarding the payment of JAMS administrative or arbitrator fees (including the timing of such payments and remedies for nonpayment). The arbitrator must follow these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. Finally, if Collab.Land's or your claim is for monetary relief of $10,000 or less and doesn't request any equitable remedy, the party bringing the claim may, based solely on the documents submitted to the arbitrator, choose whether arbitration will be conducted through a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing under the JAMS Rules. The Streamlined Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration may be accessedat https://www.jamsadr.com/ or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They 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.

Arbitration costs:

Collab.Land will pay the additional cost if the arbitration filing fee exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit provided your claim does not exceed $10,000. For claims that do not exceed $10,000, we'll also bear the cost of any arbitration fees, unless the arbitrator finds your claims, defenses, or other fee-generating activity to be conducted for an improper purpose or frivolous (under the standard set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11). For claims above $10,000, fees and costs will be determined in accordance with JAMS Rules. In all arbitrations, unless otherwise required by law or the JAMS Rules, you are responsible for all other additional arbitration costs incurred, including attorney's fees and expert witness costs.

Opt-out:

You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing an opt-out notice to support@collab.land within 30 days of the "last updated" date above or when you first elect to use our Services, whichever is later, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Collab.Land also will not be bound by them.

Class waiver:

IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU AND COLLAB.LAND AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If this specific paragraph is found unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate will be null and void. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular remedy, then that remedy (and only that remedy) must be severed from the arbitration and may be sought in court. The parties agree, however, that any adjudication of remedies not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending the outcome of any arbitrable claims and remedies.You have certain rights that, by law, can't be limited by these Terms, and we in no way intend to restrict those rights in these terms.

Entire agreement:

These terms cover the entire agreement between you and Collab.Land for your use of our Services.

Additional terms:

Where additional terms apply to our Services, the additional terms will control with respect to your use of that Service to the extent of any conflict with these Terms.

Security reporting:

We support the responsible reporting of security vulnerabilities. To report a security issue, please send an email to anti-scam@collab.land.

Waiver, severability, and assignment:

If you fail to follow these Terms and we don't immediately act, that doesn't mean we're giving up any of our legal rights (such as acting in the future). If any part of these Terms ends up being invalid or unenforceable based on a decision by any court or competent authority, the rest of these Terms will not be affected. You may not assign these Terms to anyone else without our written consent. We may assign our rights to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with our services.

Survival:

Any part of these Terms that by their nature should survive after termination of these Terms will survive.

Updates:

We may decide to update these Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. If you continue to use our Services after the changes have taken effect, it means that you agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
