15.1 General. Wisely respects the rights of copyright owners and expects its users to do the same. Therefore, as required by the Terms, infringing content may not be submitted to the Services or used in, whole or in part, in any User Content.
15.2 User Content. If you upload User Content that contains any copyrighted work, including literary works, visual works, musical works, sound recordings, audiovisual works, or other work or any combination of the foregoing, then you must be the owner of such works or have all required rights, licenses, consents, and permissions to use such works on the Services and grant the rights granted herein. In addition to being grounds for removal of your User Content, termination of your account, and any other remedy Wisely may have against you, your failure to own or obtain such rights may subject you to civil and/or criminal liability, the damages for which can be significant.
15.3 Copyright Owner Rights. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof, and you believe any content submitted to and hosted on the Services infringes your copyrights, then you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing Wisely’s Designated Copyright Agent with the following information in writing:
(i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on the Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works on the Services;
(iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Wisely to locate the material;
(iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Wisely to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
(v) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (for example, “I am under the good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted content that is identified herein is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”); and
(vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed (for example, “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner, of the copyright(s) that is/are allegedly infringed by the aforementioned content.”).
Please consult your legal counsel (or see 17 U.S.C. § 512) to confirm these requirements and your compliance therewith. It is Wisely's policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA. In addition, Wisely will promptly terminate without notice the accounts of Users that are determined by Wisely to be “repeat infringers.” If Wisely receives more than three takedown notices regarding a user’s User Content, then that User will be considered a repeat infringer and their account will be terminated.
15.4 Designated Agent. Wisely’s Designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications and counter-notifications of claimed infringement can be reached by electronic mail at email@example.com. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Designated Copyright Agent. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support or other communications should be directed to Wisely customer service through firstname.lastname@example.org. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
16.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Wisely in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Wisely agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WISELY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
16.2 Exceptions; Injunctive Relief; Waiver of Jury Trial. Notwithstanding subsection 16.1, Wisely and you both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims. You acknowledge that a breach of these Terms may cause irreparable injury to Wisely for which monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Accordingly, we shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief and other equitable remedies via the court system in the event of such breach, in addition to any other remedies available, without the necessity of posting a bond.
16.3 Arbitrator. All disputes, controversies or claims between you and Wisely arising out of or in connection with the Services or these Terms shall be finally settled by binding arbitration governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules“) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Wisely. The number of arbitrators shall be one (1). The place of arbitration shall be New York, NY, USA. The language of the arbitral proceedings is English. The parties shall endeavor to mutually agree upon the selected arbitrator. However, in the event the parties are unable to reach mutual agreement, the AAA shall appoint an arbitrator based on familiarity and experience with the cause of action and governing law.
16.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice“). Wisely's address for Notice is: Wisely Inc., 535 W William St., 2nd Floor North, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand“). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Wisely may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Wisely shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
16.5 Fees. The filing fees, arbitrator fee and other administrative costs associated with any arbitration proceeding shall be borne equally by the parties. If the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then you agree to reimburse Wisely for all monies previously disbursed by it in connection with the arbitration proceeding. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
16.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND WISELY AGREE THAT EACH 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, unless both you and Wisely agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
16.7 Modifications. In the event that Wisely makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Wisely’s address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Wisely's address for Notice, in which case your account with Wisely shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, shall survive.
16.8 Enforceability. If only Subsection 16.6 of this Section 16 or the entirety of this Section 16 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 16 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction described in Section 18 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
Wisely has financial relationships with some of the credit cards and/or financial institutions represented on the Services. We may be compensated if you or any other consumers or users of the Services choose to apply for a credit card or other third-party financial products or services via the Services.
These Terms: (i) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law; and (ii) will not be governed by the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The relationship of the parties under these Terms is that of independent contractors, and these Terms will not be construed to imply that either party is the agent of the other. Any notices under these Terms must be sent to:
535 W. William St.
2nd Floor North
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
You may contact us by sending correspondence to the foregoing address or by emailing us at email@example.com.
