9. Indemnification

You are responsible for any and all uses of the site. You also agree to defend (at Aegis’ option), indemnify, and hold harmless Aegis and its officers, directors, employees, contractors, consultants, affiliates, investors, service providers, business providers, subsidiaries and agents from and against every claim, liability, damage, obligation, loss, penalty, action, judgment, suit, disbursement, and expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with a violation of any of the Terms of Use, any representation, warranty or agreement referenced in the Terms of Use, or any applicable law or regulation; a violation of any third-party right (including any intellectual property right or publicity, confidentiality, other property, or privacy right); or any dispute or issue between you and any third-party. Aegis reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and you agree to cooperate with our defense of that claim. If the defense or settlement is assumed by you, Aegis may at any time thereafter elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of the claim. You must not settle any claim without Aegis’ prior written consent.

10. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. THIS SECTION AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

You and Aegis agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, including the existence, validity, interpretation, performance, enforcement, breach or termination thereof or any dispute regarding non-contractual obligations arising out of or relating to the Terms of Use shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. The language to be used in the arbitration proceedings shall be English. You understand and agree that you are waiving your right to a trial by jury as well as to being a participant in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive any termination of other terms, any account you may have with Aegis or this site. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages that are limited or waived by these Terms of Use (such as punitive damages, treble damages, or any other damages, which are not compensatory), to the extent such limitation or waiver is permitted under applicable law, and you and Aegis waive any right to recover any such damages. Further, the arbitrator shall have no power to issue any award that is contrary to or inconsistent with any applicable statute, case law or constitutional law, to modify, change or excuse performance of any material term of these Terms of Use, or to award equitable relief. The arbitration proceedings and decision of the arbitrator shall be kept confidential (and may not be disclosed) by you, Aegis or the arbitrator, except to the extent necessary to compel any award made by the arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS (formerly known as “Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services”) pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or if you reside outside of the United States of America, pursuant to JAMS International Arbitration Rules (in each case, the “Rules”).

YOU AND AEGIS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOURS OR AEGIS’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Aegis agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

11. Waiver

Our failure at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms & Conditions or Terms of Use or to exercise any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of such provisions or such rights. All waivers must be in writing. Unless the written waiver contains an express statement to the contrary, no waiver by Aegis of any breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions or of any right provided for herein shall be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right herein.

12. Severability

You agree and understand that if any provision of these Terms of Use, or application thereof, shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation or by any governmental agency, local, state, or federal, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of the provision to the greatest extent possible under the applicable law.

13. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use (alongside our Privacy Policy and any other legal documents, policies, terms, or agreements governing the site) constitute the entire agreement between you and Aegis with regard to the site and governs your use of the site and its products and services, and supersedes any and all prior negotiations, discussions or agreements between the parties with respect to the subject matter of the Terms of Use.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are visiting the site in your capacity as an agent of an organization or entity that has executed a Client Custodial Agreement with Aegis or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, where there is or may be a conflict between the Client Custodial Agreement and these Terms of Use, the terms of the Client Custodial Agreement control.

14. Modification and Updates to Terms of Use

We reserve the right to modify or update the Terms of Use at any time without prior notice, and except as explicitly provided herein, such changes will be effective immediately upon being posted through the site, except as set forth below. Your use of the site following any such change constitutes your agreement and acceptance to be bound by the modified Terms of Use.

Disputes arising under the Terms of Use will be resolved in accordance with the version of the Terms of Use in place at the time the dispute arose. We encourage you to review these Terms of Use frequently to stay informed of the latest modifications and updates.

15. Modification and Discontinuation of Site

We reserve the right at any time to modify, edit, update, delete, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, this site (or any portion thereof) and/or the information, materials, products and/or services available through this site (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third-party in such an event.
