Choice of Law

If there is any dispute arising out of these Terms, the parties expressly agree that any such dispute shall be governed by the laws applicable in the state of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver

Any dispute arising out of or relating to the Terms, the Services, or any relationship between the parties, or any of their parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, officers, directors, or employees, heirs and permissible assigns, without limitation, no matter how described, pleaded or styled, will be resolved through final, binding arbitration under the substantive and procedural requirements of the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator chosen by the parties. The arbitration shall be conducted under the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures and expedited procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Information about the AAA arbitration process and the AAA Consumer Rules can be obtained at www.adr.org The arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties. The parties agree that the arbitrator, and not a court, will have exclusive jurisdiction over the interpretation, validity, and scope of this arbitration agreement. The costs of the arbitration filing fee, arbitrator’s compensation, and facilities fees will be paid by Paper. Each party will pay for its own attorneys’ fees and costs. Any dispute or claim will be brought solely in that party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, representative proceeding, mass action or consolidated action. The fact of and all aspects of this arbitration and the underlying dispute will remain strictly confidential by the Parties, their representatives, and the AAA. The Parties agree that any actual or threatened violation of this provision would result in irreparable harm and will be subject to being immediately enjoined. If this arbitration agreement is declared unenforceable and cannot be administered, interpreted, or modified to be enforceable, the parties agree to waive any right to a jury trial for any dispute to which this agreement applies and any dispute will be commenced and maintained exclusively in the state or federal courts in Delaware and the parties each consent to the personal jurisdiction of the courts. This provision survives the termination of the Terms. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, you retain the right to pursue any claim in a small claims court and proceed on an individual basis for any such claim that is within the court’s jurisdiction.

BY ACCEPTING THE TERMS YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE TO BRING ANY CLAIMS ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, CONSOLIDATED OR MASS ACTION BASIS.

Time Limitation on Claims

You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to the Services or your relationship with Paper must be filed within one year after the claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.

Consent to Receive Notices Electronically

You consent to receive any agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications (collectively, “Notices”) to which these Terms refer from us electronically, including without limitation by e-mail or other electronic communication technology that may hereafter be developed. You agree that all Notices that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirements that those communications be in writing. Also, please note that your consent to receive notices is separate from any election you make regarding receipt of marketing communications.

Consent to Receive Marketing Emails

You agree to receive periodic commercial/promotional communications from us electronically, including email to any email addresses you provide to us, to the extent permissible by law including, without limitation, information and offers from us and our participating merchants, partners and sponsors, or for such other purposes as we deem appropriate and as permissible by law.

Paper may restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Services at any time and for any reason in its sole and complete discretion. Paper reserves the right to exercise whatever means it deems necessary to prevent unauthorized access to Services. If Paper terminates your account, you will not create another account without our permission.

These Terms will remain in full force and effect while you use the Services. Any provision in the Terms that by its nature should survive the termination of your license to access the Services or any termination of the Terms (including, without limitation, provisions governing arbitration, indemnification, limitations on liability, disclaimers of warranty, and ownership of intellectual property) will continue to remain in full force and effect after any termination.

Legal Notices

These Terms may not be transferred or assigned by you without Paper’s prior written consent. Paper may assign or transfer the Terms to its affiliates or concerning a merger, sale, reorganization, or other change of control. Paper’s affiliates, contractors, and service providers may exercise Paper’s rights or fulfill its obligations under the Terms. Waivers must be in writing and no waivers will be implied. If any provision of this Terms is held by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. The Terms are the final, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us relating the Services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements relating to this subject matter, whether oral or written. Headings are for convenience only and the term “including” (and similar terms) will be construed without limitation.

Changes to Terms

You agree that Paper may, at its sole discretion, modify the Terms at any time without notice by adding new terms or amending existing terms. Such modifications will be effective as of the date that the updated Terms are posted on the Services (“Effective Date”).
