Because some states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for certain damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.


You agree to indemnify and hold harmless ROOTONE and our respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and third parties for any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) relating to or arising out of your use of our ROOTONE Services; breach of these Terms; any User Content provided by you; or your violation of any third-party rights. You will cooperate as fully as required by us in the defense or settlement of any claim.


In case of any disputes between us that cannot be resolved through informal discussions, you agree to submit such disputes to a neutral arbitration organization appointed by the American Arbitration Association and in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final. You and we also both agree not to disclose the contents of the arbitrator’s decisions related to the arbitration to anyone (except as required by law or for the purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award).

Arbitration will cover all disputes and claims regarding these Terms, including tort claims, direct claims, or indirect claims. The arbitrator can issue rulings on any substantive or procedural issues arising in the dispute, including the scope of the dispute. This arbitration clause will continue to be valid even if these Terms are no longer valid for some reason.

If you have a claim or dispute, you must contact us first, so we can try to resolve the matter. You agree to give us 60 days to try to resolve the dispute before requesting arbitration. The arbitration of any dispute or claim will follow the relevant rules of the American Arbitration Association as modified by these Terms.

If you and we have to participate in arbitration of disputes between us, such arbitration shall take place in New York, New York. The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what these Terms provide, order consolidation or arbitration on a class-wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration section is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.

There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration section to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general).

You must contact us within one year of the date of the event or facts giving rise to a dispute or you will have waived the right to pursue a claim based on such event or facts.

Class Action Waiver

Any arbitration will be on an individual basis. By using our Site and Services, you agree that you cannot make “class action” claims.

Unless both you and we agree, the arbitrator cannot group claims together.

If you are a copyright owner or an agent of a copyright owner, and you believe that any content on the Site and Services, mobile apps, or other website or online services infringes such copyright(s), then you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) by providing our Designated Copyright Agent with the following information in writing:
