Arbitration Agreement
DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Skydance (including its affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns) and you agree that any Dispute (as defined below) between you and Skydance, regarding any aspect of your
Page 14
relationship with Skydance, will be resolved in a binding, confidential, individual, and fair arbitration process, and not in court. Each of you and Skydance agrees to give up the right to sue in court. The term “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any dispute, claim, demand, count, cause of action, or controversy between you and Skydance, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, or any other intentional tort), or any other legal or equitable theory. The term “Dispute” specifically includes, but is not limited to, any and all claims between you and Skydance in any way related to or concerning this Arbitration Agreement, any other aspect of this Agreement (including their applicability and their conformance to applicable law), any products or services provided by Skydance, any billing disputes, and any disputes relating to telephonic, text message, or any other communications either of us received from the other. The only exceptions to this Arbitration Agreement are that each of you and Skydance: (a) retains the right to sue in small claims court; and (b) may bring suit in court against the other to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Disputes over whether these exceptions apply shall be resolved by the court in which such action has been brought; all other disputes over arbitrability shall be resolved by the arbitrator. Each of you and Skydance also agrees to give up the ability to seek to represent, in a class action or otherwise, anyone but each of you and Skydance (see Paragraph 6 (Declaratory or Injunctive Relief; Third Party Proceedings) below). There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator must follow this Agreement. The arbitrator, however, can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief, or statutory damages). This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement.
JAMS. Any arbitration between you and Skydance will be conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator, and if you and Skydance cannot agree on who that single arbitrator will be, the arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the JAMS Rules, with the participation and involvement of Skydance and you pursuant to JAMS Rule 12. The JAMS Rules are available on its website at The JAMS Consumer Arbitration at Standards . The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Page 15
Notice. If either you or Skydance wants to arbitrate a claim, you or Skydance must first send by mail to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving notice, the specific facts giving rise to the Dispute, the Platform to which the Notice relates, and the relief requested. Your Notice to Skydance must be sent by mail to:
Skydance Interactive, LLC 2900 Olympic Blvd., 3rd Floor Santa Monica, CA 90404 USA Attn: Legal Department
Skydance will send any Notice to you at the contact information we have for you or that you provide. It is the sender’s responsibility to ensure that the recipient receives the Notice.
Settlement Period. During the first 45 days after you or we receive a Notice to the other, you and we may try to reach a settlement of the Dispute. If you and we do not resolve the Dispute within said 45 days, either you or we may initiate arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Rules.
Demand for Arbitration. Further instructions on submitting a Demand for Arbitration at mand.pdf. In addition to filing this Demand for Arbitration with JAMS in accordance with its rules and procedures, you must send a copy of this completed Demand for Arbitration to Skydance at the address listed above to which you sent your Notice of Dispute.
RULES. You and Skydance acknowledge and agree to abide by the following rules for arbitration:
Arbitration Costs. Skydance will pay arbitration costs as required by the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards and consistent with Paragraph 6 (Declaratory or Injunctive Relief; Third Party Proceedings) below.
Page 16
Award. The arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law.
Fees. Each side pays his, her, or its own attorneys’ fees, except as otherwise provided in Paragraph 5 (Attorneys Fees; Arbitration Fees) below. JAMS charges filing and other fees to conduct arbitrations. Ordinarily, the claimant has to pay the filing fee to initiate arbitration, but if you wish to commence an arbitration against Skydance, you and Skydance acknowledge and agree to abide by the following:
If you are seeking to recover less than $10,000 (inclusive of attorneys’ fees), Skydance will pay the filing fee on your behalf or reimburse your payment of it;
If you are seeking to recover $10,000 or more, you will have to pay the filing fee charged by JAMS, but Skydance will reimburse the filing fee if you prevail on all claims decided upon by the arbitrator;
Skydance and you agree that, if the claims to be arbitrated total less than $10,000 (inclusive of attorneys’ fees), the claim ordinarily should be decided on written submissions only, without a telephonic or in-person hearing. Skydance will not request a hearing for any claims totaling less than $10,000. This provision shall not be construed by the arbitrator to deprive you of any rights you may have to a telephonic or in-person hearing in your hometown area pursuant to the JAMS Rules; and
Skydance and you agree that, if the claims to be arbitrated total $10,000 or more, the arbitration will occur in a manner and place consistent with the JAMS Rules.
DISCOVERY; DECISION. Regardless of how the arbitration proceeds, each of you and Skydance shall cooperate in good faith in the exchange of non-privileged documents and information as necessary in accordance with the JAMS Rules, and the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain his or her findings and conclusions.
ATTORNEYS FEES; ARBITRATION FEES. Each of you and Skydance may incur attorneys’ fees during the arbitration. Each side agrees to pay his, her, or its own attorneys' fees unless the claim(s) at issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its attorneys' fees, and in such instance, the fees awarded shall be determined by the applicable law(s). In addition to whatever rights you may have to recover your attorneys’ fees under applicable law, if you prevail in the arbitration, and if Skydance failed to make a settlement offer to you before the arbitration, or the
Page 17
amount you win is at least 25% greater than Skydance’s highest settlement offer, then Skydance will pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees in addition to the amount the arbitrator awarded. If Skydance wins the arbitration, you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees. In addition, if the arbitrator, at the request of the winning party, finds that the losing party brought a claim or asserted a defense frivolously or for an improper purpose, then regardless of the amount in dispute, the arbitrator must order the losing party to pay both sides’ arbitration fees and may order the losing party to pay the winning party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, unless such an award of fees is prohibited by Applicable Law.
DECLARATORY OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF; THIRD PARTY PROCEEDINGS. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. The arbitrator may not order Skydance to pay any monies to or take any actions with respect to persons other than you, unless Skydance explicitly consents in advance, after an arbitrator is selected, to permit the arbitrator to enter such an order. Furthermore, unless Skydance expressly agrees, the arbitrator may not consolidate other persons’ claims with yours, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, multi- claimant or class proceeding.
CONFIDENTIALITY. You and Skydance agree to maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and shall not disclose the fact of the arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the arbitration, the arbitrator’s decision, and the existence or amount of any award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or court order.
SEVERABILITY & SURVIVAL. With the exception of Paragraph 3.a. (Rules – Claims) (i.e., the waiver of the ability to proceed on behalf of multiple claimants or a purported class), if any part of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the balance of this Arbitration Agreement shall remain in effect and be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, or illegal provision were not contained. If, however, Paragraph 3.a. (Rules – Claims) is found invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, but the rest of this Agreement, including the provisions governing where actions against Skydance must be pursued, the choice of governing law, and our mutual waiver of the right to a trial by jury, will remain in effect and apply to any claim that, for this or any other reason, proceeds in court rather than in arbitration.

Waiver and Severability

Your California Privacy Rights

Under California Law, California residents may have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship: (a) a list of the categories of Personally Identifiable Information and the type of services provided to the customer, that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes and (b) the names and addresses of all such third parties. To make such requests, if entitled, please email us at [email protected]

Information We Collect on the Website

COLLECTION OF USAGE INFORMATION. When users come to our Website, we automatically collect “Usage Information” which include among other things, which pages of our Website were visited, the order in which they were visited, when they were visited, and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” We also collect information from the URLs from which you linked to our Website. Collecting such information may involve logging the IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for your computer, phone, tablet or other device used to access the Website (any, “Device”), operating system and browser software used by each user of the Website. Although such information is not Personally Identifiable Information, we may be able to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity. Whenever we associate Usage Information or a Device Identifier with your Personally Identifiable Information, we will treat it as Personally Identifiable Information.

TECHNOLOGY USED ON THE WEBSITE. We also use or may use cookies, web beacons and/or embedded scripts to help us determine and identify repeat visitors, the type of content and sites to which a user of our Website links, the length of time each user spends at any particular area of our Website, and the specific functionalities that users choose to use. Essentially, cookies are a user’s identification card for the Skydance servers. Web beacons are small graphic files linked to our servers that allow us to track your use of our Website and related functionalities. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Cookies, web beacons and embedded script allow Skydance to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience at our Website. Cookies, web beacons and embedded script are not used to retain Personally Identifiable Information. You should be able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of this Website may not work properly, but you do not have to accept our cookies in order to use many functionalities of the Website.

California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b)(as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how Skydance responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings. Skydance does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. In order to access certain features and benefits on our Website, you may need to submit “Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., information that can be used to identify you). Personally Identifiable Information can include information such as your name, address, telephone number and email address. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to Skydance. Inaccurate information may affect your ability to use the Website, the information you receive when using the Website, and our ability to contact you. For example, your email address should be kept current because that is one of the primary manners in which we communicate with you. We may collect Personally Identifiable Information in connection with various functionality and services offered via the Website, including the following:

  1. UPDATES & NEWSLETTERS. Skydance may offer you the ability to receive email updates and newsletters. In order to subscribe to these services, you may be required to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information such as your name, email address and zip code.
  2. PARTICIPATION IN CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES, AND OTHER PROMOTIONS. Skydance may offer you the opportunity to participate in a contest, sweepstakes, or other promotions on or through the Website. If you desire to participate in any such contest, sweepstakes, or other promotion, you will be asked to provide us with certain information necessary to conduct such contest, sweepstakes, or other promotion. This information may include, among other things, your name, age, mailing address, email address, and phone number.
  3. COMMUNICATIONS WITH SKYDANCE. We may receive Personally Identifiable Information when you send us an email message or otherwise contact us.
  4. SOCIAL MEDIA INTERACTION. We may receive Personally Identifiable Information when you engage with our Website on or through third-party social networking sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, and allow us to have access to information from your profile (e.g., name, email address, photo, gender, birthday, location, friends, followers, the posts or the ‘likes’ you make). You can control what data you share through privacy settings available on some social networking sites. For more information about how you can customize your privacy settings and how such third-party sites treat your Personally Identifiable Information, please refer to their privacy policies and terms of use.
  5. METADATA. Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using other’s APIs then, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if you make your photo public by posting it on our Website.

We do not endorse and are not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third Party Sites.

Public Forums/User Content

When you post User Content (as defined herein and in the Terms of Use on the Website) you do so at your own risk. Skydance cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your content and Personally Identifiable Information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Website will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to websites, blogs, message boards, chat rooms or any other public forums, such information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications. If you choose to “like” content on our Website or to otherwise post information from or via our Website to third party web sites, features or applications, that information will become public and the third party web sites may have access to information about you and your use of our Website.


We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personally Identifiable Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your use of the Website and these transactional messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from marketing communications.

Ad Serving

Skydance may use third party network advertisers and similar vendors to serve our advertisements across the internet and third party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Website and viewing of our content. We do not share Personally Identifiable Information with these third parties, but ad network providers and analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts on your Device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information.

With regard to advertisements, we and our network advertisers may target advertisements for products and services in which you might be interested based on your visits to both the Website and other web sites.

We may share Usage Information about visitors to the Website with third party advertising companies for the same purposes. We may use a variety of companies to serve advertisements. You may wish to visit, which provides information regarding the “opt-out” procedures of certain third party ad servers we may use.

Google Analytics

Skydance uses a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, what other sites they used prior to coming to this site, and user demographic data, such as age, gender, and interests. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information, unless you explicitly submit that information through our website. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.
