AS A CONDITION OF USING THE SERVICES (INCLUDING, FOR CLARITY AND WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY SPIN SCOOTER) YOU HEREBY ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THIS “RELEASE OF LIABILITY,” including any defined terms therein.
You acknowledge that use of Spin’s vehicle or other transportation device, including but not limited to, bicycles, electric bicycles, electric kick scooters (collectively “Spin Scooters”), as well as any other equipment, product or services that relate to or concern the rental or use of a Spin Scooter is an inherently dangerous recreational activity that involves both obvious and non-obvious risks of physical harm, including the risk of death to you and others, as well as damage to property, and that these types of risks can be unforeseeable and sometimes cannot be avoided. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, you, on behalf of yourself, your family, your heirs, your agents, your aﬃliates, your representatives, your successors, your guardians and your assigns (collectively the “Releasing Parties”), agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and forever release and discharge the Released Persons (as deﬁned below) from any and all injuries, demands, losses, damages, costs, loss of service, expenses, compensation, claims, suits, causes of action, obligations, rights, and liabilities of any nature, type, or description, whether arising in tort (including negligence), contract, strict liability, or any other legal theory, whether known or unknown, contingent or vested, in law or in equity, whether or not we have been advised of the possibility of such damage, including but not limited to, property loss or damage, personal injury or loss of life, regardless of legal theory, that: (a) relate to, are based on, concern, or arise out of these Terms, your use of a Spin Scooter, the Services, the Site, the App, and/or any of the equipment that Spin provides to You (collectively the “Released Claims”). “Released Persons” as used herein means (i) Skinny Labs Inc., d/b/a Spin ("Spin") (ii) subsidiaries and affiliates of Spin, and (iii) to the fullest extent permitted by law, any (x) governmental entity (including, without limitation, any state, commonwealth, city, town, township, charter township, special district, village, borough, other municipal corporations, and unincorporated communities or jurisdictions) and (y) educational institution (including, without limitation, public and private universities and colleges, high schools, secondary schools, and primary schools) (each of (x) and (y), a "Municipality") with which Spin has contracted or at which Spin is providing Services, and each of Spin's and Municipality's respective current and former parents, subsidiaries, divisions, and current and former aﬃliated individuals and entities, legal successors, predecessors (including companies they have acquired, purchased, or absorbed), assigns, joint venturers, and each and all of their respective oﬃcers, investors, partners, directors, elected officials, servants, agents, shareholders, members, managers, principals, investment advisors, consultants, employees, representatives, legal counsel, accountants, lenders, underwriters, and insurers. This Release is intended to be a general and complete release of all Claims and all Released Persons may plead the existence of this Release as a full and complete defense to any Claim.
You hereby acknowledge that you have been advised of and fully understand the provisions of California Civil Code Section 1542 which provides as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.” Having been so advised, Releasing Party nevertheless elects to and does assume all risks for Released Claims known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, heretofore arising from the use of Spin Scooters, equipment and anything relating to such use, and speciﬁcally waives any rights it may have under Section 1542, as well as under any other statute or common-law principle in any jurisdiction with a similar eﬀect.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ENTER INTO THIS RELEASE FREELY, KNOWINGLY, AND VOLUNTARILY, AND THAT YOU INTEND IT TO BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE AND WAIVER OF ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY DESCRIBED ABOVE SHALL APPLY FULLY TO NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS.
3.2. Accuracy. You represent, warrant, and covenant to Spin that all information that you provide about yourself as requested by Spin or a Third-Party Provider (before, during, and after the account creation process), including, without limitation, your Number and your Card, is, and will remain during your use of the Services, true, accurate, current, and complete, and that you are authorized to provide all such information and use your Card. You are also solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your account, and you agree to notify Spin immediately of any suspected unauthorized use to your account. To the maximum extent allowed by law, Spin is not liable for any losses by any party caused by unauthorized use of your account.
3.3. Confidentiality. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your log-in credentials in order to use the Services and are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your credentials. You agree to notify Spin immediately of any unauthorized use of your log-in credentials or any other breach of security with respect to your account. Spin will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your credentials regardless of whether you have notified Spin of such unauthorized use or loss of your credentials. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us. You understand and agree that we may require you to provide information that may be used to confirm your identity and help ensure the security of your account.
3.4. Restrictions. You may not impersonate someone else to create an account, create or use an account for anyone other than yourself, permit anyone else to use your account, or provide personal information for purposes of account registration other than your own. You may not permit another person to use any Spin Scooter or other Services using your account credentials, regardless of whether that person is a user of the Services themselves, and to permit such use is a material breach of this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, you are responsible for all use of the Services in connection with your account and/or your rental of a Spin Scooter, including, without limitation, death, personal injury, and injury to property, that results from a Spin Scooter that you have rented, that has been used with your account credentials, or that was accessed by you through a Third-Party Provider.
3.5. Termination. We have the right to disable, suspend, or close your account if your account is delinquent, if your Card is no longer valid, or at any other time, for any other reason or for no reason, in our sole discretion, without notice. YOU AGREE THAT WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PARTY FOR ANY TERMINATION OF YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. If we terminate your account, you must immediately return any Spin Scooter, or other property of Spin that you have in your possession. You will be charged for the value of any property of Spin that you fail to return as well as all costs (including attorneys’ fees and costs) that Spin incurs in attempting to recover its property from you.
3.6. Spin Access. In your region, Spin may offer a program giving certain qualified users the ability to utilize the Services without the App and/or at a discount (“Spin Access”). You can learn more about Spin Access here: https://www.spin.app/spin-access. To qualify for Spin Access, we may require you to submit documentation proving eligibility. Any codes or other benefits provided to you in relation to Spin Access must be used for the intended audiences and purposes and are not transferable, redeemable or exchangeable for other things of value, except at our sole discretion. You represent and warrant that all information and documentation submitted is true, accurate, and complete and that you will keep all such information and documentation up to date. Spin may, in its sole discretion and with or without cause, suspend or terminate your eligibility for Spin Access at any time and without any notice to you.
4.1. Fees. You must pay to Spin, or, as applicable, the Third-Party Provider, all charges and fees in connection with your use of the Services, which may vary based on the Services you have selected and may include, without limitation, rental charges, application fees, service fees and/or other charges set forth in these Terms ("Fees"). Spin’s fee schedule is set forth through the App. The fee schedule is incorporated herein by this reference, and you agree to pay the published fees and charges. Spin may alter, amend or make changes to the fee schedule at any time and may provide notice of such changes in the App. You must pay all Fees when due. You authorize us to charge the Card or other payment method provided for all Fees incurred by you with respect to Services (or other services offered by us), including applicable sales, use, VAT/GST/PST and other local government charges. If you dispute any Fees, you must submit any such disputes in writing to Spin within thirty (30) days of Spin charging the Fees. Where permitted by applicable law, failure to submit such dispute within the thirty (30) day deadline will mean that you waive the dispute and the charge for such Fees will be final, non-refundable, and non-challengeable.
4.2. Method of Payment, Stored Balance, and Auto-Reload. You hereby authorize Spin to charge your Card or other payment method via the App or via another authorized third-party payment processor (e.g., PayPal, Stripe, Square, or others). We may seek pre-authorization of your Card or other payment method up to the maximum amount for a single ride prior to charging Fees in order to verify its validity or the existence of sufficient funds in the account tied to such Card and/or credit on the Card. You must provide accurate, current, and complete information when adding a Card or other payment method and it is your obligation to keep such information up-to-date at all times. You must notify us if your Card or other payment method expires or is no longer valid and must replace it with a valid Card or other payment method. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use any Card or other payment method you furnish to us.
We may offer a service where you are given the option to store funds with us for use of our Services (“Stored Balance”). All amounts added to your Stored Balance are denominated in the currency of the country in which it was sold. You may only use the Stored Balance in the currency in which it was sold, unless otherwise indicated in the App.
If the auto-reload setting is enabled, you acknowledge and agree that when your Stored Balance equals or drops below a certain balance, we may automatically add funds to your Stored Balance at a designated amount by charging your Card or other payment method (“Auto-Reload”). You can disable Auto-Reload at any time by updating your account settings, but changes may take a reasonable amount of time to go into effect. In the event you disable Auto-Reload or one of your automatic reloads is declined, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation, expiry of your card, funds will not be added to your Stored Balance. In such scenarios, you may be required to separately load your Stored Balance. Spin may, at any time and in its sole discretion, discontinue Auto-Reload. If you formally close your account with Spin, unless you owe Fees, you will receive a refund of any amounts remaining in your Stored Balance. Please allow up to six (6) weeks for a refund. We will refund the money to the payment method you designated.
You authorize us and/or our third-party payment providers to store information about your Card or other payment method for the purpose of charging you Fees for use of the Services and facilitating Auto-Reload. If we are unable to charge you a Fee or facilitate Auto-Reload with the payment method you previously selected, you authorize us to charge the Fee or add funds to your Stored Balance by charging another payment method associated with your account. If your payment details change, your card provider may provide us with updated card details. We may use these new details in order to help prevent any interruption to your use of the Services. If you would like to use a different payment method or if there is a change in payment method, please visit your account settings to update your billing information.
4.3. Returns and Lost/Stolen Scooters. You are responsible for properly Returning the Spin Scooter in order to end your ride. If you fail to Return a Spin Scooter to a valid area, Spin may, in its sole discretion, charge you an additional pick-up fee up to $100. If any Spin Scooter rented by you or accessed under your account with Spin or a Third-Party Provider is abandoned without notice, you will be responsible for all trip fees until the Spin Scooter is recovered and deactivated, plus a service charge to recover the Spin Scooter. Fees are subject to change. This does not apply if you were unable to return the Spin Scooter without any fault on your own.
Upon Returning the Spin Scooter within the permitted 24-hour timeframe, you will be charged the lesser of (a) the accumulated Fees in such 24-hour time period and (b) $200 per calendar day, which is the maximum daily Fee we will charge for a calendar day. If you fail to Return a Spin Scooter within 48 hours of the time at which you unlocked or otherwise began renting such Spin Scooter, we will consider that Spin Scooter lost or stolen and we may charge you a Fee of up to $1,300 for each Spin Scooter, and a police report may be filed. Spin may also charge a service Fee of $25 for rentals in excess of 24 hours where the Spin Scooter is not lost or stolen.
A Spin Scooter may also be deemed lost or stolen if: (1) the Spin Scooter’s GPS unit is disabled; (2) the Spin Scooter is parked in on unauthorized private property, in a locked area, or in any other non-public space for more than ten minutes after a ride ends; (3) the Spin Scooter moves more than thirty feet after a rental has ended and Spin believes such movement was not caused by another user or authorized third party; or (4) other facts and circumstances that suggest to Spin in its reasonable, good faith determination that a Spin Scooter has been lost or stolen.
Spin and you agree that the last user who rented a Spin Scooter shall be responsible for a lost or stolen Spin Scooter unless facts and circumstances suggest otherwise to Spin in its reasonable, good faith determination. If Spin deems a Spin Scooter lost or stolen, Spin shall have the authority to take any and all actions it deems appropriate (with respect to the last user who rented a Spin Scooter or otherwise), including (without limitation) obtaining restitution and other appropriate compensation and damages and filing a police report with local authorities. You agree the data generated by Spin’s computers and systems is conclusive evidence of the period of use of a user of a Spin Scooter.
4.4.1 You are fully responsible and liable for any Fees that are charged to you by us or a third party (including any Third-Party Provider) in connection with your use of a Spin Scooter or use of a Spin Scooter under your account credentials, including, but not limited to, traffic violations, late payments, fines, penalties, impounding charges, court costs, and/or any other Fees based on improper parking or a result of your violation of any law, rule, regulation, and/or ordinance when using a Spin Scooter.
4.4.2 After providing you with reasonable notice and an opportunity to object, you agree that Spin may, in its sole discretion, pay any ticket, citation, fine, and/or penalty on your behalf directly to the appropriate authority and bill such payment as a Fee to your account, and you will pay us for such Fees plus a reasonable administrative Fee. In the event we use a third-party collection and/or administrative agent to resolve any such tickets, citations, fines and/or penalties, you must pay all costs and collection charges including, without limitation, administrative and legal costs to such agent upon demand without protest.
4.5. Damages. You are fully liable for all damages, losses, claims, consequences, demands, causes of action, injuries, costs, and liability in connection with your use of a Spin Scooter or use of a Spin Scooter rented by you or used under your account credentials or your credentials with a Third-Party Provider, including, without limitation, (i) physical or mechanical damage, (ii) loss due to theft, (iii) physical damage resulting from vandalism, (iv) bodily injury to you or a third party, (v) third party claims, (vi) actual charges for towing, storage and/or impound fees paid by Spin, and (vii) administrative charges, including the cost of appraisal and other costs and expenses incident to the damage or loss. YOUR INSURANCE POLICIES MAY NOT PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR ACCIDENTS INVOLVING OR DAMAGE TO A SPIN SCOOTER. TO DETERMINE IF COVERAGE IS PROVIDED, YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY OR AGENT.
5.1. Limitations on Services. Spin reserves the right to limit in its sole discretion the provision of the Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. There may be times when we need to disable the Site and/or other Services either temporarily or permanently. The Services may be modified, updated, interrupted, suspended, or discontinued at any time without notice or liability to you. Also, from time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Site and/or Services, or the entire Site and/or Services, to users, including registered users. Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that Spin makes no representation, warranty, covenant, or guarantee that the Services (including, for clarity and without limitation, the Spin Scooters) will be available to you at all or any times, and you further acknowledge and agree that Spin may, in its sole discretion, without notice or liability to you, terminate your right to use the Services (including, for clarity and without limitation, the Spin Scooters).
5.2. Electric Vehicle. The Spin Scooter is an electric vehicle that requires periodic charging. You represent and warrant that you have read and understand that: (i) it is your responsibility to check the level of charge power in the Spin Scooter and to ensure it is adequate before initiating using the Spin Scooter; (ii) the level of charge power in the Spin Scooter at the time you initiate a rental or use of the Spin Scooter is not guaranteed and will vary with each use; (iii) the level of charge power in the Spin Scooter will decrease as you continue to use it, the rate at which it will decrease will vary, and as it decreases, the speed and/or other operational capabilities will decrease or cease in their entirety; (iv) the distance and/or time that you may use the Spin Scooter before it loses charge power is never guaranteed; and (v) the Spin Scooter may run out of charge power and cease to operate at any time during your use of the Spin Scooter, regardless of whether you have reached your desired destination. You are prohibited from charging a Spin Scooter, unless otherwise directed by Spin Scooter. By choosing to charge a Spin Scooter, you assume full and complete responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and agree that Spin and all other Released Persons (defined below in Section 6) are not responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by you with respect to any person or property, including the Spin Scooter itself, directly or indirectly related to the charging of the Spin Scooter.
5.3. Obtaining Equipment/App Updates and Upgrades. In order to access the Services, you must have access to a compatible internet browser, computer and/or mobile device, software, and internet connections or service plans. Without limiting the foregoing, you are required to reserve Spin Scooters through the App or, if applicable, a Third-Party Provider and therefore must have a mobile device that is compatible with the App, Third-Party Provider and the Spin Scooters. Spin may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time. You acknowledge and agree that Spin may change system requirements from time to time and that meeting those requirements is your responsibility. We cannot and do not make any representations or warranties with respect to the devices or internet connections you use to access or use the Services, including with respect to device compatibility.
5.4. Feature Availability / Features Subject to Change. The availability of the Services and the features and services included in it is subject to change with or without notice to you. Not all features or services included in the Services are available in all markets and functionality of the Services may be limited, including, without limitation, due to vehicle capability or compatibility, mobile device or network coverage.
5.5. Usage and Data Fees. Your internet service provider or mobile carrier may charge you access, software or data fees for any network use or data transmission by the Services. Contact your internet service provider or mobile carrier for more information regarding usage rates and fees.
5.6. Third Party Sites. As is typical online, the Site and/or Services may contain hyperlinks to other sites. If there are other websites and resources linked to on this Site and/or Services, either by Spin or by you, these links are provided only for the convenience of Spin's users. We have no control over the contents of those websites or resources, and therefore cannot accept responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third-party websites linked to the Site and/or Services, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the user terms and conditions of use and privacy policies for such websites.
5.7. Common Carrier Limitation. You agree that Spin is not a common carrier. Alternative means of public and private transportation are available to the general public and to you individually. We provide Spin Scooters only as a convenience.
THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND YOU USE THEM SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. SPIN DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THE FUNCTIONALITY OF ANY OF THE SERVICES OR THAT ANY SPIN SCOOTER OR ANYTHING RELATING TO YOUR USE OF A SPIN SCOOTER OR THE SERVICES WILL BE IN GOOD REPAIR OR ERROR-FREE OR FREE FROM DELAYS, DEFECTS, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS OR INACCURACIES. ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED BY SPIN AND THE RELEASED PERSONS TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
THEREFORE, WITHOUT LIMITING THE RELEASE OF LIABILITY:

“Us” “Our” “We” and/or “Spin” shall mean Skinny Labs Inc. dba Spin, its successors, assigns, parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions, dealerships, service providers, and their affiliates, and the respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, or shareholders of any of the foregoing.
“You” shall include yourself, in your individual capacity, and any authorized or unauthorized users or occupants of the Spin Scooter, and/or your or their beneficiaries.
You and Spin agree that these this arbitration undertaking is made pursuant to an in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act at 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
This Section 12 is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between Us, including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between Us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before these Terms or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to interactions between users); and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms. Except as provided herein, claims arising out of or relating to the validity, application, scope, enforceability, or interpretation of the Terms, including this Section 12, shall also be decided by an arbitrator. The only Disputes excluded from this Section 12 are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
By agreeing to these Terms, You agree to resolve any and all disputes with Spin as follows:
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: For any and all disputes, claims, or controversies You may have against Spin arising out of, relating to, or in respect of these Terms, including their negotiation, validity, existence, breach, termination, construction or application, or the rights, duties or obligations of any Party, or the rights, duties or obligations of any Party derived from or associated with these Terms (“Disputes”), whether pursued in court or arbitration, You must first give Us an opportunity to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting Us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief You seek. If We do not resolve the Dispute within forty-five (45) days after receiving your notification, then You may pursue resolution of the Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
If the Dispute has not been resolved and is not subject to the exclusions outlined in this Section 12, then either Party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve all Disputes, subject to the terms set forth below.
All Disputes shall be resolved before a single arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures for claims that do not exceed $250,000 and the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for claims exceeding $250,000, in each case applying the rules and procedures in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. You can find the JAMS rules and procedures here at this link.
To start an arbitration with JAMS, You must do the following: (1) write a Demand for Arbitration that includes a description of the claim and the amount of damages you seek to recover (you may find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com); (2) send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to JAMS, 2 Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco, CA 94111; and (3) send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration to Spin at 450 Mission Street, Ste 400San Francisco, CA 94105, ATTN: Legal Department.
You will be required to pay $250 to initiate an arbitration against Us. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Spin will pay all other fees invoiced by JAMS, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
Location of Arbitration: If You live in the United States, You may initiate and litigate the arbitration in your hometown area or through the JAMS office located in San Francisco, California. If You live outside the United States, You must initiate and litigate the arbitration through the JAMS office located in San Francisco, California. Either Party may ask that the arbitration including the hearings, arguments, and all conferences be conducted telephonically or by video conference (e.g., Skype).
The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER: The parties agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or class arbitration or seek relief on a class basis. THIS MEANS THAT YOU AND SPIN AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A LEAD OR REPRESENTATIVE CLASS PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
By agreeing to these Terms, You are waiving your right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. We are also waiving these rights.
Warranty: You and We agree that this arbitration agreement includes any claim arising out of accessing Spin Scooters or Services, including any claims from a breach of an implied or express warranty, or any other claim regarding quality, service or repair, including California-specific warranty protections or so-called “lemon law” statutes including the Song-Beverly Act, California Unfair Competition Law, California Secret Warranty Law, California Consumer Legal Remedies Act and any claims involving pre- or post-sale fraud. The warranty period is not extended or triggered anew by Claims or complaints by You, or repair attempts by Us, or flaws or defects discovered at any point after the time of sale.
Exclusions from Arbitration: Notwithstanding the parties' agreement to resolve Disputes through arbitration, either Party may (1) bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to misuse, infringement, or misappropriation of intellectual property theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights); (2) seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction, (3) file bankruptcy in court; (4) enforce a security interest in the vehicle by repossession or in court; (5) take legal action in court to enforce the arbitrator’s decision; and (6) pursue claims and remedies provided for under the Magnussen-Moss Act in court. You and we agree that to the extent that either Party has a good faith belief that a Dispute falls within the jurisdiction of the small claims court in the U.S. county (or parish) of your residence or in Michigan, either Party may elect to have such Dispute adjudicated in such small claims court. Either Party may make such election even after the other Party initiates an arbitration. To the extent that either you or we elect to have a Dispute resolved in small claims court after an arbitration is initiated, the Party that initiated the arbitration agrees to dismiss or suspend the arbitration and seek to resolve the Dispute in small claims court. You and we agree that in the situation where an arbitration is already initiated and one Party invokes the small claims court option, any dispute regarding whether the Dispute is properly within the jurisdiction of a small claims court shall be resolved by the small claims court in the first instance (unless it is unwilling to do so) and not the arbitrator or JAMS.
30-Day Right to Opt-Out: You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above. You can opt out of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending an email from your registered email address on Spin to Us at email@example.com with the subject line, "ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." To opt-out, You must send the email to Spin with the required language within thirty (30) days of the later of the following: (i) of your creation of a Spin account; or (ii) the date of notice from Spin of a material change to this Section via email to You. To be clear, if You opt out of the arbitration and class action waiver provision, You will be able to pursue any potential claims in a court of law and can participate in a class action or other class proceeding if You so desire. If You do not opt out properly, You agree to arbitrate. If You opt out of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions, We will not be subject to them either with respect to any disputes with You, meaning Spin can also litigate in a court of law and be subject to class action litigation.
Severability: If a court or arbitrator decides that any portion of this Section 12 is invalid or unenforceable, then the portion shall be severed from the Terms and/or deemed modified, only to the extent necessary to make it lawful. Such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provisions of the Terms that are not invalid or unenforceable. To affect the modification of the portion, the portion shall be deemed deleted, added to, and/or rewritten, whichever shall most fully preserve the intentions of the parties as originally expressed herein.
The Terms and the relationship between You and Spin shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Michigan, including warranty law, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. This Section 12 shall survive any termination of your account, these Terms, or the Services.

Except where prohibited by applicable law, a Dispute (as defined above), shall be referred to and determined by a single arbitrator in a final and binding arbitration administered under the rules of ADR Institute of Canada, Inc.’s Arbitration Rules. If the Parties have not agreed upon an arbitrator within 14 days, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties in writing, the Parties shall ask the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc. to appoint a single arbitrator.
The seat of the arbitration shall be the same as the provincial or territorial law governing these Terms. The arbitration shall be heard in the capital of the seat unless the Parties agree otherwise. The costs and expenses of the arbitrator shall be shared equally between the Parties. A Party to the arbitration has no right of appeal from any award of the Arbitrator, whether characterized as final, interim, interlocutory or partial.
All Disputes referred to arbitration (including the scope of the agreement to arbitrate, the law relating to the enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate, any relevant limitation periods, the law governing the procedure of the arbitration, the law relating to available remedies, set-off claims and conflict of laws rules) shall be governed by the law of the seat. Each Party hereby irrevocably consents to venue in the capital of the seat, and to the jurisdiction of competent courts in the capital of the seat for all litigation that may be brought, however it is agreed and acknowledged that the intention of the parties is to arbitrate the Dispute without recourse to the courts.
A Party to these Terms may take such steps as are permitted or required to enforce an award made by an Arbitrator. Except as required by law, and only to the extent that such disclosure is reasonably necessary, or for the purposes of obtaining professional advice, the existence of the arbitration and any element of the arbitration, including any award, shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed to any non-party to the arbitration. No document or other evidence or information prepared for or produced by or on behalf of any Party to the arbitration shall be disclosed to any non-party to the arbitration.
You and Spin agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any dispute under these Terms. Including under Section 12 of these Terms and including any claim or cause of action against You or Spin, must be commenced or filed within one year after such claim arose, in accordance with these Terms; otherwise, the dispute or claim is permanently barred, and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted in that time period.
