This website terms-of-service agreement is entered into between you and AV Registry LLC and Takedown Piracy Inc. (collectively, “Company,” “ClipSentry,” “we,”
). The following agreement, together with any documents it expressly incorporates by reference (collectively, this “agreement”
), governs your access to and use of www.clipsentry.com
, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through www.clipsentry.com
), whether as a guest or a registered user.
This Website is offered and available to users who are 18-years old or older. By using this Website, you state that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with ClipSentry and meet all the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all these requirements, you must not access or use the Website.
This agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.
1.Nature of Website.
ClipSentry is an anti-piracy service for independent artists provided by Takedown Piracy and AV Registry. The Website allows artists, cam performers, content creators, and independent producers who shoot and produce their own content access to anti-piracy and DMCA removal services. ClipSentry and our agents will seek, find, and remove infringements on behalf of the independent producer from Tubes, Search Engines, File Lockers, Torrents, Blogs, Forums, and Social Media using our sophisticated techniques and technology. Also included is the capability to upload and digitally fingerprint content, so that ClipSentry can find and detect pirated content using its automated visual content identification (“Content ID”
). If ClipSentry determines that your content is being pirated, ClipSentry will work to get it removed by issuing DMCA Takedown requests on your behalf through Takedown Piracy. Access and registration to the Website require you to buy a subscription.
2.Changes to the Agreement.
We may revise and update this agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them and apply to all access to and use of the Website from then on. But changes will not apply retroactively to ongoing disputes or disputes arising out of (or relating to) events happening before the posted changes. Your continued use of the Website after the posting of the revised agreement means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page frequently so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

14.Subscriptions, Billing, and Cancellation
(a)Ongoing Subscriptions. Your subscription will continue month-to-month (or any longer-term selected) and automatically renew unless you cancel your subscription, or we terminate it. You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment. Our payment processor will bill the subscription fee to your chosen payment method.

We will disclose any different material terms from those described in this agreement to you at signup or in other communications to you.
(a)Recurring Billing. By starting your subscription and providing a payment method, you authorize us or our payment processor to charge you a subscription fee at the rate in effect when you originally signed up and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Website, such as taxes or transaction fees. Your subscription will continue for the length of the initial term you select, and, at the end of your initial prepaid term, it will automatically renew for additional prepaid periods of the same length. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid billing of the next term’s subscription fee to your payment method. On renewal, our payment processor will automatically charge you at the rates in effect at the time you originally signed up.
(b)Fee Changes. We may modify the subscription fees at any time in our sole discretion. Any subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current term. We will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any changes in subscription fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your subscription before that change becomes effective. Your continued use of the Website after the subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified subscription fee amount.
(c)Billing Disputes. If you believe we charged you in error, you must notify us in writing no later than 30 days after you receive the billing statement in which the error first appeared. If you fail to notify us within this 30-day deadline, you waive any disputed charges.

If you believe exceptional circumstances exist, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and explain the exceptional circumstances that you believe merits a refund. We are not making any promise that we will give you a refund. If we give you a refund, we will issue the refund in the form of a credit to the payment method you used for your purchase; we will not make refunds in the form of cash, check, or free services. The provision of a refund in one instance does not entitle you to a refund in the future for similar cases; nor does it obligate us to give refunds in the future under any circumstance.
(e)Cancellation. You may cancel your subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Website through the end of your current subscription term. We do not issue refunds or credits for any partial-subscription periods. To cancel your subscription, please email us at email@example.com or log into your billing settings page.

19.3The foregoing does not affect any liability that cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
20.Waiver of Section 1542.
With respect to the releases of liability set out in this agreement, you acknowledge that you understand the consequences of entering into the general release and discharge of all known and unknown claims as stated in this agreement and that you are familiar with the provisions of section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which provides that:
A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.
You hereby waive all rights under section 1542 and under any other federal or state statutes or laws of similar effect.
You will pay ClipSentry, its affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”
) for any loss of an Indemnified Party that is caused by any of the following: (a) your access of, or conduct on, the Website, including your User Uploads; (b) your breach of this agreement; (c) your violation of rights of any person, including intellectual property, publicity, and privacy rights; (d) your violation of applicable law; (e) your tortious acts or omissions; or (f) your criminal acts or omissions. But you are not required to pay if the loss was caused by an Indemnified Party’s intentional misconduct.
(a)“Loss” means an amount that an Indemnified Party is legally responsible for or pays in any form. Amounts include, for example, a judgment, a settlement, a fine, damages, injunctive relief, staff compensation, a decrease in property value, and expenses for defending against a claim for a loss (including fees for legal counsel, expert witnesses, and other advisers). A loss can be tangible or intangible; can arise from bodily injury, property damage, or other causes; can be based on tort, breach of contract, or any other theory of recovery; and includes incidental, direct, and consequential damages.
(b)A loss is “caused by” an event if the loss would not have happened without the event, even if the event is not a proximate cause of the loss.
21.3Indemnified Party’s Duty to Notify You.
The Indemnified Party will notify you before the 30th day after the Indemnified Party knows or should reasonably have known of a claim for a loss that you might be compelled to pay. But the Indemnified Party’s failure to timely notify you does not end your obligation, except if that failure prejudices your ability to defend or mitigate losses.
21.4Legal Defense of a Claim.
The Indemnified Party has control over defending a claim for a loss (including settling it) unless the Indemnified Party directs you to control the defense. If the Indemnified Party directs you to control the defense, you will not settle any litigation without the Indemnified Party’s written consent if the settlement (1) imposes a penalty or limitation on the Indemnified Party, (2) admits the Indemnified Party’s fault, or (3) does not fully release the Indemnified Party from liability. You and the Indemnified Party will cooperate with each other in good faith on a claim.
The Indemnified Parties’ rights under this section 21 do not affect other rights they might have.
22.Governing Law and Jurisdiction
22.1Governing Law. Kansas law governs all matters arising out of or relating to the Website and this agreement and any dispute or claim arising from or related the Website and this agreement (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims) without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of Kansas or any other jurisdiction). The predominant purpose of this agreement is to provide services and to license access to intellectual property and not a “sale of goods.” This agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
22.2Jurisdiction and Venue. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, this agreement or the Website will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Kansas, in each case located in the City of Kansas City and County of Wyandotte, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against you for breach of this agreement in your country of residence or any other relevant country. You waive all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by those courts and to venue in those courts.
23.Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
23.1You and ClipSentry are agreeing to give up any rights to litigate claims in a court before a jury, or to participate in a class action or representative action with respect to a claim. Other rights that you would have if you went to court may also be unavailable or may be limited in arbitration.
23.2Any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) between you and us arising from or relating in any way to the Website or your purchase of services through the Website, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration.
23.3The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
23.4The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
23.5If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided in section 24.
23.6You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intent to do so within 60 days of your purchase. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
23.7You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, neither you nor ClipSentry will be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other customers in court or in arbitration or otherwise participate in any claim as a class representative, class member, or in a private attorney general capacity. The arbitral tribunal will not consolidate more than one person’s claims and will not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
23.8If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
In any proceedings between the parties arising out of or relating to the subject matter of this agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party, besides any other relief awarded, all expenses that the prevailing party incurs in those proceedings, including legal fees and expenses. For purposes of this section 24, “prevailing party” means, for any proceeding, the party in whose favor an award is rendered, except that if in those proceedings the award finds in favor of one party on one or more claims or counterclaims and in favor of the other party on one or more other claims or counterclaims, neither party will be the prevailing party. If any proceedings are voluntarily dismissed or are dismissed as part of settlement of that dispute, neither party will be the prevailing party in those proceedings.
25.Jury Trial Waiver.
Each party hereby waives its right to a trial by jury in any proceedings arising out of, or relating to the subject matter of, this agreement. Either party may enforce this waiver up to and including the first day of trial.
26.Class Action Waiver.
All claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and, unless ClipSentry agrees otherwise, the arbitrator will not consolidate more than one person’s claims. Both parties acknowledge that each party is waiving the right to participate in a class action.
27.Limitation on Time to Bring Claims.
A party will not bring a claim arising out of or relating to the Website or this agreement more than one year after the cause of action arose. Any claim brought after one year is barred.
28.2Assignment and Delegation.
ClipSentry may assign its rights or delegate any performance under this agreement without your consent. You will not assign your rights or delegate your performance under this agreement without ClipSentry’s advanced written permission. Any attempted assignment of rights or delegation of performance in breach of this section 28.2 is void.
No waiver by the Company of any term stated in this agreement will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of that term or a waiver of any other term, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under this agreement will not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
If any provision of this agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, that provision will be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent so that the remaining provisions of this agreement will continue in full effect.
