The DMCA provides certain “safe harbor” provisions that insulate online service providers (“OSP”) from liability for copyright infringement for infringing activities of its end users. In addition to meeting the requirements for each safe harbor exemption, an OSP must comply with the following to qualify for the safe harbor protection under the DMCA: (a) Give notice to its users of its policies regarding copyright infringement and the consequences of repeated infringing activity. (b) Follow proper notice and takedown procedures. Once a copyright owner provides proper notice of allegedly infringing material to the OSP, or the OSP discovers such material itself, the OSP must remove, or disable access to, the material; provide notice thereafter to the individual responsible for such material; provide such individual with an opportunity to provide proper “counter-notice;” and comply with applicable procedures thereafter. (c) Designate an agent to receive notices of infringement from copyright owners (and provide the Copyright Office with contact information for such agent and make such information available on its website).
20. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.

22. DISPUTE RESOLUTION. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any Dispute, controversy or claim related to these Terms (“Dispute”), you and Moonlighting agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is your billing address, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to Moonlighting. Moonlighting’s address for such notices is Moonlighting, LLC, 971 2ndSt., SE, Suite 508, Charlottesville, 22902 Attention: General Counsel.BINDING ARBITRATION. If you and Moonlighting are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, all claims arising from use of the Platform (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, Moonlighting will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this agreement, you and Moonlighting may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.EXCEPTIONS TO ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court or to seek injunctive or other equitable relief on an individual basis in a federal or state court in Albemarle County, Virginia with respect to any Dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights.WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and Moonlighting agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between Moonlighting and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND MOONLIGHTING ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Moonlighting otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” Section will be deemed null and void.LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in Albemarle County, Virginia. You and Moonlighting agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the Virginia state and federal courts located in Charlottesville, VA have exclusive jurisdiction and you and Moonlighting agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
23. ENFORCEMENT. If Moonlighting takes any action to enforce these Terms, Moonlighting will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees and any cost of litigation, in addition to any other relief, at law or in equity, to which Moonlighting may be entitled.

Your initiation of a Payment will constitute valid and due Authorization for each Sporadic PAD and will constitute delivery of your authorization to your bank to debit your Bank Account for the PAD Amount.
- If any payment is dishonored by your bank for any reason, Moonlighting shall be entitled to issue another debit in substitution for the dishonored debit. We shall be under no liability whatsoever caused by a dishonored debit.
- You acknowledge that your bank is not required to verify that: (a) a PAD has been issued in accordance with the particulars of this Authorization; or (b) any purpose of payment for which the PAD has been issued has been fulfilled by us as a condition to honoring a PAD issued on your Bank Account.
- You may revoke this Authorization at any time by notifying us 30 days in advance.
- Even if you cancel or revoke this Authorization, certain provisions herein may survive and remain in effect between you and Moonlighting. To obtain a sample cancellation form, or for more information on your right to cancel this Authorization, you may contact your bank or visit www.payments.ca.
- You have certain recourse rights if any debit does not comply with this Authorization. For example, you have the right to receive reimbursement for any debit that is not authorized or is not consistent with this Authorization. To obtain more information on your recourse rights, contact your bank or www.payments.ca.
- A PAD may be disputed by you only if: (a) the PAD was not drawn in accordance with this Authorization or (b) amounts were drawn after this Authorization was revoked. In order to be reimbursed, you acknowledge that a declaration must be completed and presented to your bank holding the Bank Account up to and including 10 business days after the date on which the PAD in dispute was debited from the Bank Account. You acknowledge that, after such 10 business day period, a claim that the Authorization was revoked or any other dispute of a PAD is a matter to be resolved solely between you and Moonlighting.
