If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Yogi-Go a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see www.copyright.gov for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Service should be sent to Support@yogigofitness.com. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

18. Dispute Resolution.
a. Mandatory Arbitration. Please read this carefully. It affects your rights. YOU AND YOGI-GO AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE CORPORATE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, SUCCESSORS, AND PERMITTED ASSIGNS AGREE TO ARBITRATION (EXCEPT FOR MATTERS THAT MAY BE TAKEN TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT), AS THE EXCLUSIVE FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR BELOW, FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
i. Commencing Arbitration. A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other by mail or electronic mail, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “Notice”), or, in the absence of a mailing address provided by you to Yogi-Go, to you via any other method available to Yogi-Go, including via e-mail. The Notice to Yogi-Go should be addressed to Yogi-Go, Inc., 5305 Windbrush Lane, Tampa, Fl 33625 Attn: President or Support@yogigofitness.com (the “Address”). The Notice must (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If the claim is not resolved within 30 days after the Notice is received, then you or Yogi-Go may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”) IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (THE “Rules”), AS MODIFIED BY THESE TERMS. The Rules and AAA forms are available at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee to commence arbitration against Yogi-Go, then Yogi-Go will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon Yogi-Go’s receipt of Notice at the Address that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt for the filing fee, unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed in bad faith.
ii. Arbitration Proceeding. The arbitration will be in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator with his or her primary place of business in Hillsborough County, Florida, will be appointed pursuant to the Rules, as modified herein. You and Yogi-Go agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties: (A) 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; (B) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (C) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
iii. No Class Actions. YOU AND YOGI-GO AGREE THAT YOU AND YOGI-GO MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND THAT IF THIS SPECIFIC PROVISO IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THIS ENTIRE MANDATORY ARBITRATION SECTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
iv. Decision of the Arbitrator. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this deadline by 30 days in the interests of justice. Arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential, and all related records will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the award. The award will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the claim’s disposition. The arbitrator will apply Florida state law during the arbitration. You agree that these terms and your use of the App evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the Mandatory Arbitration clause in These Terms. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Yogi-Go will pay you the highest of the following: (A) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (B) the last written settlement amount offered by Yogi-Go in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (C) $1,000.
b. Equitable Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 18 do not apply to any claim in which Yogi-Go seeks equitable relief of any kind. You acknowledge that, in the event of a breach of these Terms by Yogi-Go or any third party, the damage or harm, if any, caused to you will not entitle you to seek injunctive or other equitable relief against Yogi-Go, and your only remedy will be for monetary damages, subject to the limitations of liability set forth above.
c. Claims. You and Yogi-Go agree that, notwithstanding any other rights the party may have under law or equity, any cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms or the Service, excluding a claim for indemnification, must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
d. Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Yogi-Go must be resolved in accordance with this Section 18. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 18 will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 18, Yogi-Go may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $5,000, provided that Yogi-Go has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
e. Enforceability. If only Section 18.a.iii or the entirety of this Section 18 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 18 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
19. Governing Law; Choice of Forum. The laws of the State of Florida, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern these Terms and your use of the Service. Your use of the Service may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Hillsborough County, Florida and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
20. Feedback. While our staff continually works to develop and evaluate our own product ideas and features, we pride ourselves on paying close attention to the interests, feedback, comments, and suggestions we receive from our Users. If you send us or our employees any ideas or suggestions for products, services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, promotions, strategies, or product/feature names, or any related materials (collectively “Feedback”), then regardless of what your communication may say, the following terms apply, to avoid future misunderstandings.

c. Yogi-Go will be entitled to unrestricted use of the Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you or any other person.
21. Entire Agreement; Variation. These Terms and any license contained in Yogi-Go’s products set forth the entire agreement between Yogi-Go and You with respect to the Service; provided, however, that: (1) Instructors will also be required to enter into the Instructor Agreement; (2) Yogi-Go may enter into additional agreements with you. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Fitness Instructor Agreement, the terms of the Instructor Agreement will govern.
22. Severability. Except as specifically set forth herein, if any provision of these Terms is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provisions will be modified, or if not possible, severed, to reflect the fullest valid, legal and enforceable expression of the intent of the parties and the remainder of these Terms will not be affected thereby.
23. Relationship of Parties. Nothing herein will be deemed to create an employer-employee relationship between Yogi-Go and you, nor any agency, joint venture or partnership relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the right to bind the other to any obligation, nor have the right to incur any liability on behalf of the other.
24. Waiver. No delay, omission, or failure to exercise any right or remedy provided herein will be deemed to be a waiver thereof or an acquiescence in the event giving rise to such right or remedy, but every such right or remedy may be exercised, from time to time as may be deemed expedient by the party exercising such remedy or right.
25. Assignment. Neither these Terms nor any of the rights granted to you herein may be assigned or transferred by you, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the express prior written permission of Yogi-Go and any attempt to do so will be null and void. However, Yogi-Go may assign or transfer these Terms at any time without your permission.
26. Third-Party Beneficiaries. The provisions of these Terms relating to the rights of Yogi-Go content providers are intended for the benefit of such content providers, and such content providers, as third-party beneficiaries, will be entitled to enforce such provisions in accordance with their terms, irrespective of the fact that they are not signatories to these Terms.
