Please check the applicable Additional Terms for such Websites and Services for further information. You may be asked to verify that you are over the applicable age limit during your use of the Websites or Services and you hereby agree that you shall not misrepresent your age.

We will communicate with you in a variety of ways, including, without limitation, by e-mail, text, in-app push notices, or by posting notices and messages on the Websites or through any of the Services.

6. Using The Services
Delivery and Pick-Up Orders
Proper may provide users with the ability to transmit orders for cannabis-related products and arrange for delivery or pick-up of such products through third-party, unaffiliated vendors (“Proper Orders”). Proper Orders is a third-party online marketplace platform for customers (“Customers”) to transmit such orders with participating vendors (the “Retailers”). Proper Orders provides order transmission services only and serves purely as a communications medium. Proper Orders is not a merchant of cannabis-related products, or provider of any pick-up or delivery services in connection therewith, and does not control the Retailers or the production of any cannabis-related products, or any pick-up or delivery services in connection therewith.
The Retailers have entered into agreements with Proper or its applicable affiliate where they have made representations that they currently are compliant with applicable law and will comply with applicable law in their use of Proper Orders. Proper and its affiliates do not in any way independently verify the credentials or representations of any of the Retailers, the authenticity or quality of any of their products or services, or any Retailer’s compliance with applicable law.
Customers using Proper Orders must make themselves comfortable through the information provided by the Retailers on the Websites, by contacting the Retailers directly, or through such other means or methods as they may deem appropriate, as to the quality and reliability of the Retailers and the Retailers’ compliance with applicable law. Proper, including the Websites and the Services, do not in any way guarantee the quality of any Retailer or any cannabis-related product, or any pick-up or delivery service in connection therewith, or any Retailer’s compliance thereof with applicable law. In addition, a Retailer may represent certain standards with respect to their cannabis products (or other services), such as labeling such products as “organic”, “pesticide-free”, achieving a certain potency level, undergoing certain testing procedures, fungus levels, containing specific terpene or cannabinoid profile or contents (including THC or CBD levels), having certain medicinal or other effects, or otherwise. Proper and its affiliates do not investigate or verify any such statements. Furthermore, any such statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Proper and its applicable affiliates make no claims meant to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease or medical condition. Customers should consult their doctor before starting any treatment or using any cannabis-related product during pregnancy or if they have a serious medical condition. Proper and its affiliates shall not be liable or responsible for any cannabis-related products, or any other services, offered by the Retailers or any errors or misrepresentations made by them (including on the Websites and through Proper Orders or other Services).
User Representations, Warranties, and Covenants Regarding Orders
By using Proper Orders, you represent, warrant and covenant that your use of the Websites and the Services, including Proper Orders, does not violate any applicable state or local law, including any legal requirements for orders you place through Proper Orders. Upon delivery or pick-up, as applicable, you agree to present a government-issued identification card evidencing your age as well as your original recommendation if you order cannabis. If you do not comply with these terms regarding Proper Orders, you agree that cannabis products may not be released to you by the applicable Retailer, and you may forfeit the cost of such products.
Employee Participation in Orders
Third Party Materials
The Website or Services might display, include, or make available Third-Party Content (including data, information, articles, applications or other products, services, and/or materials) or contain links to third-party websites, services, and advertisements for third-party Offers (as defined below) (collectively, the “Third-Party Materials”). You acknowledge and agree that Proper is not responsible for Third-Party Materials, including their accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality, or any other aspect thereof. Proper does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person or user for any Third-Party Materials. Third-Party Materials and links thereto are provided solely as a convenience to you and you access and use them entirely at your own risk. When you link to a Third-Party Material, the applicable third-party’s terms and policies apply, including the third-party’s privacy and data gathering practices. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such Third-Party Material.
The Website or Services might display, include, or make available coupons, promotional codes, giveaways, samples, and other offers from listed dispensaries or other third parties (collectively, the “Offers”). Offers constitute “Third-Party Materials” under these Terms. Proper displays these Offers on the Website and Services as a form of advertisement for the listing dispensary or other third party (the “Offeror”) only. All Offers are made directly by the applicable Offeror, and may be subject to additional terms, conditions, or restrictions of the Offeror or under applicable law, whether or not such terms, conditions, or restrictions are expressly included on the Website or Services. The Offeror, and not Proper, is solely responsible for: (a) redemption of the Offer; (b) compliance of all aspects of the Offer with applicable law (including, without limitation, the advertisement, redemption, and terms, conditions, and restrictions related thereto); (c) all goods and services it provides to you in connection with the Offer; and (d) all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities, and costs it may cause you to suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, whether related to the use or redemption of an Offer or not.
Indemnity and Release
If there is a dispute between users of the Websites or Services, including between Customers and Retailers (each, a “Dispute”), you understand and agree that Proper and its affiliates (including the Websites and the Services, including Proper Orders) are under no obligation to become involved in such Dispute.
You hereby release and forever discharge Proper (and its owners, directors, managers, officers, partners, employees, independent contractors, and agents, and successors and assigns of itself or its affiliates) from, and hereby waive and relinquish your rights with respect to, each and every past, present, and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action, and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to, any interactions with, or act or omission of, other Websites or Services or Third-Party Materials. For the avoidance of doubt, this release includes a release of any dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action, and cause of action arising out of or in any way related to a Dispute, regardless of whether such dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action, and cause of action are known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed. If you are a California resident or resident of a state with a similar applicable law, you hereby waive California Civil Code section 1542 in connection with the foregoing (or such other similar applicable law in your state), which states: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
7. Ownership; Proprietary Rights
As between you and Proper, you own your User Content. We own the Proper Content, including but not limited to visual interfaces, interactive features, graphics, design, compilation, including, but not limited to, our compilation of User Content and other Website Content, computer code, products, software, data, aggregate user review ratings and all other elements and components of the Websites but excluding User Content and Third-Party Material.

As such, you may not use, modify, duplicate, obscure, rent, lease, loan, sell, manipulate, reproduce, copy, republish, download, post, transmit, scrape, reverse engineer, distribute, create derivative works or adaptations of, publicly display, or in any way exploit any of the Proper Content, Websites, or the Services or any of the IP Rights of Proper, in whole or in part, unless expressly authorized by us in writing. Except as expressly and unambiguously provided herein, we do not grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights in and to the Websites and the Proper Content are retained by us.
8. Copyright Infringement

Identify the material that you claim is infringing (i.e. the material you want removed, or material that you want all access disabled to) and provide information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material, including at a minimum, if applicable, the URL of the link shown on the Websites where such material may be found.
3. Provide your mailing address, telephone number, and, if available, email address.
4. Include both of the following statements in the body of the Notice:

5. Provide your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature.
6. Deliver this Notice, with all above items completed, to Proper by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a Notice automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us in connection with the Notice and allegation of copyright infringement.

Updated November 13, 2018
Temerity Media Inc. Advertising Program Terms
These Temerity Media Inc. Advertising Program Terms (“Terms”) are entered into by Temerity Media Inc. (“Proper”) and the entity executing these Terms or that accepts these Terms electronically (“Customer”). These Terms govern Customer’s participation in Proper’s advertising programs and services (i) that are accessible through the account(s) given to Customer in connection with these Terms or (ii) that incorporate by reference these Terms (collectively, “Programs”). Please read these Terms carefully. They require the use of binding individual arbitration to resolve disputes rather than jury trials or class actions. If Customer wishes, Customer may opt out of the requirement to arbitrate disputes by following the instructions in Section 13(F) below within 30 days of the first acceptance date of any version of these Terms containing an arbitration provision.
Customer authorizes Proper and its affiliates to place Customer’s advertising materials, feed data, and technology (collectively, “Ads” or “Creative”) on any content or property (each a “Property”) provided by Proper or its affiliates on behalf of Proper or, as applicable, a third party (“Partner”). Customer is solely responsible for all: (i) Ads, (ii) Ads trafficking or targeting decisions (e.g., keywords) (“Targets”), (iii) destinations to which Ads direct viewers (e.g., landing pages, mobile applications) along with the related URLs, waypoints, and redirects (“Destinations”), and (iv) services and products advertised on Destinations (collectively, “Services”). The Program is an advertising platform on which Customer authorizes Proper and its affiliates to use automated tools to format Ads. Proper and its affiliates may also make available to Customer certain optional Program features to assist Customer with the selection or generation of Targets, Ads, or Destinations. Customer is not required to authorize use of these optional features and, as applicable, may opt-in to or opt-out of usage of these features. However, if Customer uses these features, then Customer will be solely responsible for the Targets, Ads, and Destinations. Proper and its affiliates or Partners may reject or remove a specific Target, Ad, or Destination at any time for any or no reason. Proper and its affiliates may modify or cancel Programs at any time. Customer acknowledges that Proper or its affiliates may participate in Program auctions in support of its own services and products. Some Program features are identified as “Beta” or as otherwise unsupported or confidential (“Beta Features”). Customer may not disclose any information from Beta Features or the terms or existence of any non-public Beta Features.
3. Ad Serving
(a) Customer will not provide Ads that contain or connect to malware, spyware, unwanted software or any other malicious code, or knowingly breach or circumvent any Program security measure. (b) For online display Ad impressions billed on a CPM or vCPM basis (“Display Ads”), if Proper’s applicable impression count (“IC”) for a Program is higher than Customer’s third-party Ad server (“3PAS”) IC by more than 10% over the invoice period, Customer will facilitate reconciliation efforts between Proper and 3PAS. If this discrepancy is not resolved, Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim within 60 days after the invoice date (“Claim Period”). If Proper determines that the claim is valid, then Proper will issue to Customer advertising credits equal to (90% of Proper’s IC minus 3PAS’s IC), multiplied by Proper’s reported campaign average CPM or vCPM, as applicable, over the invoice period. Any advertising credits issued must be used by Customer within 60 days of issuance (“Use-By Date”) and Proper may suspend Customer’s permission to utilize that 3PAS provider and may suspend or void the effectiveness of the discrepancy resolution provisions of this Section for that 3PAS provider. Metrics from 3PAS whose Ad server tags are provided to Proper will be used in the above discrepancy resolution calculations. Proper may require that discrepancy records be provided directly by 3PAS to Proper. Customer will not be credited for discrepancies caused by 3PAS’s inability to serve Ads.
Customer authorizes Proper and its affiliates to periodically conduct tests that may affect Customer’s Use of Programs, including Ad formatting, Targets, Destinations, quality, ranking, performance, pricing, and auction-time bid adjustments. To ensure the timeliness and validity of test results, Customer authorizes Proper to conduct such tests without notice or compensation to Customer.
5. Ad Cancellation
Unless a Policy, the Program user interface, or an agreement referencing these Terms (an “IO”) provides otherwise, either party may cancel any Ad at any time before the earlier of Ad auction or placement, but if Customer cancels an Ad after a commitment date provided by Proper (e.g., a reservation-based campaign), then Customer is responsible for any cancellation fees communicated by Proper to Customer, and the Ad may still be published. Cancelled Ads will generally cease serving within 8 business hours or as described in a Policy or IO, and Customer remains obligated to pay all charges resulting from served Ads (e.g., fees based on conversion). Customer must effect cancellation of Ads (i) online through Customer’s account, if the functionality is available, (ii) if this functionality is not available, with notice to Proper via email to Customer’s account representative, or (iii) if this functionality is not available and Customer does not have an account representative, with notice to Proper via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Customer will not be relieved of any payment obligations for Ads not submitted or submitted by Customer after the due date provided by Proper. Proper will not be bound by a Customer provided IO.
6. Warranty, Rights, and Obligations
Customer warrants that (a) Customer holds, and hereby grants Proper, its affiliates and Partners, the rights in Ads, Destinations, and Targets for Proper, its affiliates and Partners to operate the Proper Programs (including, in the case of feed data, after Customer ceases to use the Programs), and (b) all information and authorizations provided by Customer are complete, correct and current. Customer authorizes Proper and its affiliates to automate retrieval and analysis of, and create test credentials to access, Destinations for the purposes of the Programs. By providing any mobile or other telephone number to Proper in connection with the Programs, Customer authorizes Proper, its affiliates and their agents to call and send text messages (for which standard message and data rates may apply) to the provided telephone numbers, including by an automatic telephone dialing system, for purposes of the Programs. However, Proper will not rely on this permission to initiate autodialed calls or text messages for marketing purposes. Customer further authorizes Proper, its affiliates and their agents to send electronic mail to Customer for purposes of the Programs. Customer warrants that it is authorized to act on behalf of, and has bound to these Terms, each third party, if any, for which Customer advertises in connection with these Terms (“Advertiser”) and any references to Customer in these Terms will also apply to Advertiser, as applicable. If for any reason Customer has not bound an Advertiser to these Terms, Customer will be liable for performing any obligation Advertiser would have had under these Terms had Advertiser been bound. If Customer is using a Program on its own behalf to advertise, for that use Customer will be deemed to be both Customer and Advertiser. Customer will provide Advertiser with reporting data no less than on a monthly basis, that discloses absolute dollars spent on Proper and performance (at a minimum cost, clicks and impressions of users on the account of that Advertiser) in a reasonably prominent location. Proper may, upon request of an Advertiser, share Advertiser-specific information with Advertiser.
For reservation-based Display Ads, Proper will deliver any agreed on aggregate number of Display Ads by the end of the campaign, but if Proper fails to do so, then Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim during the Claim Period. If Proper confirms the accuracy of the claim, then Proper will not charge Customer for the undelivered Display Ads or, if Customer has already paid, at Proper’s reasonable discretion, Proper will provide for (i) advertising credits, which must be used by the Use-By Date, (ii) placement of the Display Ads in a position Proper deems comparable within 60 days of Proper’s confirmation of the accuracy of the claim or (iii) an extension of the term of the campaign. Proper cannot assure that any auction-based Ads will be delivered and therefore make-goods do not apply to auction-based Ads.
Customer will pay all charges incurred in connection with a Program, using a payment method approved by Proper for that Customer (as modified from time to time), within a commercially reasonable time period specified by Proper (e.g., in the Program user interface or IO). Late payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. Customer will pay (i) all taxes and other government charges and (ii) reasonable expenses and legal fees Proper incurs in collecting late payments that are not disputed in good faith. Charges are based on the billing criteria under the applicable Program (e.g., based on clicks, impressions, or conversions). Any portion of a charge not disputed in good faith must be paid in full. No party may offset any payment due under these Terms against any other payment to be made under these Terms. Proper may, in its sole discretion, extend, revise or revoke credit at any time. Proper is not obligated to deliver any Ads in excess of any credit limit. If Proper does not deliver Ads to the selected Targets or Destinations, then Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Proper will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use-By Date. Customer understands that third parties may generate impressions or clicks on Customer’s Ads for prohibited or improper purposes and if that happens, Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Proper will issue the credits following claim validation, which must be used by the Use-By Date. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, (A) CUSTOMER WAIVES ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO ANY PROGRAM CHARGES UNLESS A CLAIM IS MADE WITHIN THE CLAIM PERIOD AND (B) THE ISSUANCE OF ADVERTISING CREDITS (IF ANY) IS AT PROPER’S REASONABLE DISCRETION AND IF ISSUED, MUST BE USED BY THE USE-BY DATE.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, PROPER, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS PARTNERS AND AFFILIATES, DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING FOR NON-INFRINGEMENT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE, AS WELL AS ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PROGRAMS AND PROPER AND PARTNER PROPERTIES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS,” AND CUSTOMER USES THEM AT ITS OWN RISK. PROPER, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS PARTNERS DO NOT MAKE ANY GUARANTEE IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAMS OR PROGRAM RESULTS. PROPER MAKES NO PROMISE TO INFORM CUSTOMER OF DEFECTS OR ERRORS.
10. Limitation of Liability
EXCEPT FOR SECTION 11 AND CUSTOMER’S BREACHES OF SECTIONS 3(A), 14(E) OR THE LAST SENTENCE OF SECTION 1, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OR TYPE OF CLAIM: (a) PROPER, CUSTOMER, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS FOR ANY DAMAGES OTHER THAN DIRECT DAMAGES, EVEN IF THE PARTY IS AWARE OR SHOULD KNOW THAT SUCH OTHER TYPES OF DAMAGES ARE POSSIBLE AND EVEN IF DIRECT DAMAGES DO NOT SATISFY A REMEDY; AND (b) OTHER THAN CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE TERMS, PROPER, CUSTOMER, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR DAMAGES UNDER THESE TERMS OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO PERFORMANCE OF THESE TERMS FOR ANY GIVEN EVENT OR SERIES OF CONNECTED EVENTS IN THE AGGREGATE OF MORE THAN THE AMOUNT PAYABLE TO PROPER BY CUSTOMER UNDER THE TERMS IN THE THIRTY DAYS BEFORE THE DATE OF THE ACTIVITY FIRST GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
Customer will defend and indemnify Proper, its Partners, agents, affiliates, and licensors against all liabilities, damages, losses, costs, fees (including legal fees), and expenses relating to any third-party allegation or legal proceeding to the extent arising out of or related to Ads, Targets, Destinations, Services, Use or any breach of these Terms by Customer. Partners are intended third-party beneficiaries of this Section.
12. Changes to Terms
Proper may make non-material changes to these Terms at any time without notice, but Proper will provide advance notice of any material changes to these Terms. The Terms will be posted at aproperhigh.com/terms. Other than changes made under Section 13(G), the changes to the Terms will not apply retroactively and will become effective 7 days after posting. However, changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately upon notice. Either party may terminate these Terms at any time with notice to the other party, but (i) campaigns not cancelled under Section 5 and new campaigns may be run and reserved and (ii) continued Program Use is, in each case, subject to Proper’s terms and conditions then in effect for the Programs (available at aproperhigh.com/terms). Proper may suspend Customer’s ability to participate in the Programs at any time. In all cases, the running of any Customer campaigns after termination is in Proper’s sole discretion.
13. Dispute Resolution Agreement
A. Arbitration of disputes. Proper, Customer, and Advertiser agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between Proper and Customer or between Proper and Advertiser that arise out of or relate in any way to the Programs or these Terms. This agreement to arbitrate (“Dispute Resolution Agreement” or “Section 13”) is intended to be broadly interpreted and includes, for example:
claims brought under any legal theory;
claims that arose before Customer or Advertiser first accepted any version of these Terms containing an arbitration provision;
claims that may arise after the termination of Customer’s or Advertiser’s Use of the Programs;
claims brought by or against Proper, Proper affiliates that provide the Programs to Customer or Advertiser, Proper parent companies, and the respective officers, directors, employees, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns of these entities; and
claims brought by or against Customer or Advertiser, the respective affiliates and parent companies of Customer or Advertiser, and the respective officers, directors, employees, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns of these entities.
This Dispute Resolution Agreement does not preclude any party from seeking an individualized preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order until a claim is arbitrated, or from bringing an individualized action in small claims court, in any court that has jurisdiction; provided that, as limited by Section 13(C) below, the arbitrator will have exclusive jurisdiction to finally resolve claims not within the jurisdiction of a small claims court. Nor does this Dispute Resolution Agreement bar any party from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies.
Proper, Customer, and Advertiser agree that, by entering into this arbitration agreement, all parties are waiving their respective rights to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Dispute Resolution Agreement. With respect to all disputes or claims that arise out of or relate in any way to the Programs or these Terms, this Dispute Resolution Agreement supersedes any contrary terms regarding dispute resolution in any other agreement between the parties.
B. Notice of disputes. If any party intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other party with notice in writing (“Notice of Dispute”). This Notice of Dispute to Proper must be sent to the following address (“Proper’s Notice Address”):
Temerity Media Inc.
Legal Department - Ads Arbitration
1507 7th Street #176
Santa Monica CA 90401
Proper will send notice to Customer or Advertiser at the e-mail and mailing addresses associated with Customer’s account. Customer and Advertiser each agree to receive notice at those addresses. In addition, Customer agrees to notify Advertiser promptly of any such notice. Customer’s or Advertiser’s Notice of Dispute to Proper must provide, as applicable, (a) Customer’s or Advertiser’s name and mailing address, (b) the email address Customer or Advertiser uses to log into Customer’s account, (c) the Ads Customer ID(s), (d) the Case Number(s) assigned by Proper to track previous attempts to resolve the dispute, (e) a description of the dispute, including identification of the relevant campaigns and/or AdGroups, and (f) a statement of the relief requested. If the parties are unable or unwilling to resolve the dispute within 60 days after the Notice of Dispute is submitted, the dispute will be resolved by arbitration upon one party sending the other party or parties and the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) a demand for arbitration. For the avoidance of doubt, no arbitration demand may be submitted until at least 60 days after submission of the Notice of Dispute. Unless the parties agree otherwise, Customer’s or Advertiser’s demand for arbitration must be sent to Proper’s Notice Address and entitled “Demand for Arbitration.” Proper will send demands for arbitration to Customer or Advertiser at the e-mail and mailing addresses associated with Customer’s account.
C. Arbitration procedures. The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules ("AAA Rules"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the Expedited Procedures of the AAA Rules will apply to any claim of $75,000 or less. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties will agree to another arbitration provider or the court will appoint a substitute. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any evidentiary submissions made in arbitration will be maintained as confidential in the absence of good cause for its disclosure. The arbitrator’s award will be maintained as confidential only to the extent necessary to protect either party’s trade secrets or proprietary business information or to comply with a legal requirement mandating confidentiality.
Unless the parties agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of Customer’s principal place of business (or, if the arbitration is commenced by Advertiser, the county (or parish) of Advertiser’s principal place of business). If the value of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim is $25,000 or less, Customer or Advertiser may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephone, or by an in-person hearing. If the value of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision is based. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that only a court of competent jurisdiction may decide issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision, the arbitrability of disputes, or the interpretation of Section 13(E). The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in other arbitrations in which Customer or Advertiser is not a party. The arbitrator can award the same individualized damages and relief that a court can award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction.
D. Costs of arbitration. The AAA’s fee schedule is subject to change and may be found in the AAA Rules (available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). Proper will pay all AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration that Proper commences. If Customer or Advertiser commenced arbitration at least 60 days after submitting the Notice of Dispute to Proper, and the value of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim is $75,000 or less, Proper will pay Customer’s or Advertiser’s share of any such AAA fees. If the value of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim is between $75,000 and $300,000, Customer’s or Advertiser’s share of any such fees will be capped at $200 (unless the law of Customer’s or Advertiser’s state requires Proper to pay all such fees). If the value of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim exceeds $300,000, the allocation of AAA fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. But the arbitrator may reallocate the fees to require Proper to pay all fees if Customer or Advertiser cannot afford to pay them. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of Customer’s or Advertiser’s claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all AAA fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such cases, the arbitrator may direct Customer or Advertiser to reimburse Proper for amounts that Proper paid on Customer’s or Advertiser’s behalf.
E. No class or representative arbitration. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim without affecting other PROPER users or other customers or advertisers. CUSTOMER, ADVERTISER, AND PROPER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless all affected parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one Advertiser’s or Customer’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
F. 30-day opt out period. Customer (both for itself and for any Advertiser that Customer represents) and Advertiser have the right to opt out of this Dispute Resolution Agreement. A Customer or Advertiser who does not wish to be bound by this Dispute Resolution Agreement (including its waiver of class and representative claims) must notify Proper as set forth below within 30 days of the first acceptance date of any version of these Terms containing an arbitration provision (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Customer’s or Advertiser’s notice to Proper under this subsection must be submitted via webform available at aproperhigh.com/terms. An opt-out notice does not revoke or otherwise affect any previous arbitration agreement between Customer and Proper or between Advertiser and Proper.
G. Future changes to Dispute Resolution Agreement. If Proper makes any changes to this Dispute Resolution Agreement (other than a change to Proper’s Notice Address), Customer or Advertiser may reject any such change by notifying Proper via webform as set forth in Section 13(F) within 30 days of the change. It is not necessary to submit a rejection of the future change to this Dispute Resolution Agreement if Customer or Advertiser had properly opted out of arbitration in compliance with the requirements of Section 13(F). By rejecting a future change, Customer or Advertiser is agreeing that it will arbitrate any dispute in accordance with the language of this Dispute Resolution Agreement, as modified by any changes that Customer or Advertiser did not reject.
