WELCOME TO THE LIVEPEER, INC. ("LIVEPEER," "WE," "US" OR "OUR") USER REGISTRATION WEBSITE ("SITE"). THE PURPOSE OF THE SITE IS TO ALLOW YOU TO REGISTER TO RECEIVE LIVEPEER TOKENS ("LPT" OR "TOKENS") SOLELY FOR USE ON THE LIVEPEER NETWORK ("NETWORK") AS A STAKING TOKEN FOR TRANSCODING OR DELEGATION. THIS PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT ("AGREEMENT") IS IMPORTANT AND AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, SO PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. NOTE THAT SECTION 15 OF THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF CERTAIN DISPUTES.
By registering to receive Tokens, you agree to be bound by this Agreement and all of the terms incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to this Agreement, you will not receive Tokens. This Agreement governs your use of Tokens on the Network. The Tokens are for use solely and exclusively on the Network and may not be used for any other purpose. Without limiting the foregoing, the Tokens are subject to the transfer restrictions set forth in Section 9 below.
This Agreement does not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us in respect of any products, services or otherwise. You represent and warrant that you are registering for LPT in your individual capacity as the prospective beneficial owner of the LPT and not as a representative or agent of a third party or a third party entity (i.e. non-natural person) and you acknowledge and agree that Livepeer reserves the right to prohibit persons and third party entities from registering for LPT if they are domiciled in a jurisdiction (domestic or foreign) which prohibits and restricts such participation, including but not limited to any sanctions program administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
Livepeer reserves the right to change or modify this Agreement at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make changes to this Agreement, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Site or updating the "Last Updated" date at the beginning of this Agreement. By continuing to access or use the Site or LPT, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Agreement and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference. We encourage you to review the Agreement frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Site or LPT. If you do not agree to the revised Agreement, you may not access or use the Site or LPT.
For purposes of this Agreement, "LPT" refers to a general purpose cryptocurrency, implemented on the Livepeer decentralized blockchain-based computer network (the "LPT Platform"). LPT are intended to be used to as a staking token for participation in the Network [in the roles of transcoding live video, providing quality assurance, and governance of the distribution of LPT] (the "LPT Ecosystem").
3. Purchase Procedure, Registration, and Communication Preferences
To receive LPT from Livepeer directly, you will be required to register on the Site. [As part of the registration process, you will be required to view a short video on the expected use of the LPT, you wil be required to accept the terms of this Participation Agreement, you will be required to enter your first name, last name, and email, you will be required to click a captcha to prove your humanity, and you will then be required to "cryptographically sign" a message using the Ethereum address you would like to register with proving your ownership of that account. At that point, your registration will be complete.]. By registering, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about yourself, (b) maintain and promptly update from time to time as necessary your information, (c) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the information you provide to us, and (d) immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to the Site, the LPT, or your provided information. Livepeer will block multiple registrations by the same user.
You acknowledge and agree that to ensure the safety of the users' information, to counteract money laundering and to enforce is internal security policy Livepeer by default shall use internal controls and programs for such control to be maintained. Livepeer, through these programs and controls, shall collect and store information about the users and their transactions, including personal information about you, provided to us upon registration or requested by Livepeer upon transactions effected, as well as indirect information, including IP-addresses, information about the operating system used, software configuration and other information collected with the use of "cookies" technology to create statistical reports. For the avoidance of doubt, you acknowledge that any such collected information shall be used solely for OFAC, know your customer ("KYC") and anti-money laundering ("AML") compliance purposes, and any email address collected shall be used solely for contact purposes.
Livepeer may require identification information depending in case of any suspicious activity that may be indicative of illegal activity. Identification of bank accounts may also be required. You accept and agree that in cases where Livepeer has valid reasons to believe that your Ethereum address is used for money laundering or for any other illegal activity, or that you have concealed or reported false identification information and other details, and also if there is a valid reason to believe that the transactions effected via your Ethereum address were effected in breach of this Agreement, Livepeer shall be entitled to require you to provide any additional information and documents to clarify the circumstances. Transactions may be frozen until the documents are reviewed by Livepeer and accepted as satisfying the requirements of the legislation for counteracting laundering of incomes from criminal activities and financing or terrorism.
Livepeer can request from you any additional identifying information and support documents at any time at the request of any competent authority or in case of application of any applicable law or regulation, including laws related to anti-laundering (legalization) of incomes obtained by criminal means, or for counteracting financing of terrorism. In this case, if you do provide incomplete or false information and documents, Livepeer shall be free to unilaterally refuse to provide its services to you.
By registering, you also consent to receive electronic communications from Livepeer (e.g., via email or by posting notices to the Site). These communications may include notices about your registration and are part of your relationship with us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.

9. Transfer Restrictions
You agree that you are registering to receive LPT solely and exclusively for use on the Network, and that you will not sell, transfer, assign, donate, encumber or otherwise dispose of any LPT received pursuant to this Agreement on any exchange or by any other means for a period of twelve (12) months following receipt of the LPT (the "Lockup Period"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Livepeer may extend the Lockup Period if it determines, in good faith after consultation with legal counsel, that an extension of the Lockup Period is necessary to comply with applicable Law, including but not limited to, Securities Law. Upon such determination by the Company to extend the Lockup Period in accordance with the previous sentence, you agree that you will promptly enter into an acknowledgement of the Lockup Period extension and any such further terms, conditions or provisions related to the Lockup Period extension as Livepeer may reasonably request.
10. Public Token Delivery
Livepeer will distribute LPT on the Network via a publicized product launch (the "Public Token Delivery") of the Livepeer platform (the "Platform"). Livepeer will regulate the volume of LPT distributed in the Public Token Delivery in proportion to the level of functionality and decentralization achieved. Specifically, at the time of the Platform Launch, only a very limited number of LPT will be distributed to participants as part of the Public Token Delivery. As the Livepeer Protocol is tested, upgraded and further decentralized both in technology and governance, more LPT will be distributed as part of the Public Token Delivery.
LIVEPEER MAY ELECT IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION TO NOT INITIATE THE PUBLIC TOKEN DELIVERY, TO CHANGE THE INTERVALS OR AMOUNTS OF LPT TO BE DISTRIBUTED AT ANY TIME, AND/OR TO DISCONTINUE THE PUBLIC TOKEN DELIVERY, ALL FOR ANY OR NO REASON AND IN THE SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION OF LIVEPEER.
You can submit questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, original or creative materials or other information about Livepeer, the Site or the LPT (collectively, "Feedback"). You agree that submission of Feedback is at your own risk and that Livepeer has no obligations (including without limitation obligations of confidentiality) with respect to such Feedback. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to submit the Feedback. You hereby grant Livepeer a fully paid, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute, adapt, modify, reformat, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially or non-commercially exploit in any manner, any and all Feedback, and to sublicense the foregoing rights in connection with the operation and maintenance of the Site and LPT.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Livepeer, and our respective past, present and future employees, officers, directors, contractors, consultants, equity holders, suppliers, vendors, service providers, parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, predecessors, successors and assigns (individually and collectively, the "Livepeer Parties"), from and against all actual or alleged Livepeer Party or third party claims, damages, awards, judgments, losses, liabilities, obligations, penalties, interest, fees, expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and expenses) and costs (including, without limitation, court costs, costs of settlement and costs of pursuing indemnification and insurance), of every kind and nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, matured or unmatured, or suspected or unsuspected, in law or equity, whether in tort, contract or otherwise (collectively, "Claims"), including, but not limited to, damages to property or personal injury, that are caused by, arise out of or are related to (a) your use or misuse of the Site, Content or LPT, (b) any Feedback you provide, (c) your violation of this Agreement, and (d) your violation of the rights of another. You agree to promptly notify Livepeer of any third party Claims and cooperate with the Livepeer Parties in defending such Claims. You further agree that the Livepeer Parties shall have control of the defense or settlement of any third party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Livepeer.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED TO THE CONTRARY IN A WRITING BY LIVEPEER, THE SITE CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN, AND LPT ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. LIVEPEER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT AS TO THE SITE, CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN AND LPT. LIVEPEER DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT CONTENT ON THE SITE IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE, CURRENT OR ERROR-FREE. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF ANY KIND FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN OR TAKEN IN RELIANCE ON MATERIAL OR INFORMATION, CONTAINED ON THE SITE. WHILE LIVEPEER ATTEMPTS TO MAKE YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE, CONTENT AND LPT SAFE, LIVEPEER CANNOT AND DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SITE, CONTENT, LPT OR OUR SERVERS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; THEREFORE, YOU SHOULD USE INDUSTRY-RECOGNIZED SOFTWARE TO DETECT AND DISINFECT VIRUSES FROM ANY DOWNLOAD. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY DATA THAT YOU DISCLOSE ONLINE. YOU ACCEPT THE INHERENT SECURITY RISKS OF PROVIDING INFORMATION AND DEALING ONLINE OVER THE INTERNET AND WILL NOT HOLD US RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BREACH OF SECURITY UNLESS IT IS DUE TO OUR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS AND TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY USE OF LPT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY LOSSES, DAMAGES OR CLAIMS ARISING FROM: (A) USER ERROR SUCH AS FORGOTTEN PASSWORDS, INCORRECTLY CONSTRUCTED TRANSACTIONS, OR MISTYPED ADDRESSES; (B) SERVER FAILURE OR DATA LOSS; (C) CORRUPTED WALLET FILES; (D) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO APPLICATIONS; (E) ANY UNAUTHORIZED THIRD PARTY ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF VIRUSES, PHISHING, BRUTEFORCING OR OTHER MEANS OF ATTACK AGAINST THE SITE OR LPT. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT EXCLUDES OR LIMITS LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE, FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LIABILITY WHICH MAY NOT OTHERWISE BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
LPT IS AN INTANGIBLE DIGITAL ASSET. LPT EXIST ONLY BY VIRTUE OF THE OWNERSHIP RECORD MAINTAINED IN THE ETHEREUM NETWORK. ANY TRANSFER OF TITLE THAT MIGHT OCCUR IN ANY LPT OCCURS ON THE DECENTRALIZED LEDGER WITHIN THE ETHEREUM PLATFORM. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT LIVEPEER OR ANY LIVEPEER PARTY CAN EFFECT THE TRANSFER OF TITLE OR RIGHT IN ANY LPT.
Livepeer is not responsible for sustained casualties due to vulnerability or any kind of failure, abnormal behavior of software (e.g., wallet, smart contract), blockchains or any other features of the LPT. Livepeer is not responsible for casualties due to late report by developers or representatives (or no report at all) of any issues with the blockchain supporting LPT including forks, technical node issues or any other issues having fund losses as a result.
Nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or limit liability of either party for fraud, death or bodily injury caused by negligence, violation of laws, or any other activity that cannot be limited or excluded by legitimate means.
SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED TERMS IN CONTRACTS WITH CONSUMERS, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Livepeer MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR THIRD PARTY SITES AND/OR SERVICES, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL LIVEPEER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR COVER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR THIRD PARTY SITES AND/OR SERVICES OR ANY AMOUNT IN EXCESS OF THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR THIRD PARTY SITES AND/OR SERVICES THAT GIVE RISE TO ANY CLAIM.
We reserve the right to change any and all Content and to modify, suspend or stop providing access to the Site or Content (or any features or functionality of the Site) at any time without notice and without obligation or liability to you.
Reference to any products, services, processes or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, vendor or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof, or any affiliation therewith, by us. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied terms in contracts with consumers, so some or all of the disclaimers in this section may not apply to you.
14. Assumption of Risk
You accept and acknowledge:
You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your LPT token transactions. Neither Livepeer nor any other Livepeer Party is responsible for determining the taxes that apply to LPT token transactions.
We do not make any representations about the value of LPT. LPT you receive pursuant to this Agreement is to act as a staking token for participation on the Network.
Our Site does not store, send, or receive LPT. This is because LPT exists only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on its supporting blockchain. Any transfer of LPT occurs within the supporting blockchain and not on this Site.
There are risks associated with using an Internet based currency, including but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your wallet. You accept and acknowledge that Livepeer will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the LPT, however caused.
A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the LPT Ecosystem and therefore the potential utility of LPT.
As a result of the open source structure of the LPT Ecosystem protocol, the LPT Ecosystem may be susceptible to developments by users or contributors that could damage the LPT Ecosystem and affect the use of the LPT Ecosystem and LPT.
The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the LPT Ecosystem and the utility of LPT.
The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the LPT, which may also be subject to significant price volatility.
15. Limitation of Liability; Release
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL LIVEPEER OR ANY OF THE OTHER LIVEPEER PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR FOR LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME OR PROFITS, LOSS OF USE OR DATA, LOSS OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE OF ASSETS OR SECURITIES, OR DAMAGES FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE ACCESS OR USE OF THE SITES, CONTENT OR LPT OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY OR RESULTING FROM RELIANCE BY ANY USER ON ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM LIVEPEER, OR FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELETIONS OF FILES OR EMAILS, ERRORS, DEFECTS, BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, WHETHER OR NOT RESULTING FROM ACTS OF GOD, COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO LIVEPEER'S RECORDS, PROGRAMS OR SYSTEMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SIMPLE NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE).
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF LIVEPEER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE CONTENT, LPT, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PURCHASED FROM US EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 AND THE AMOUNT RECEIVED BY LIVEPEER FROM THE SALE OF LPT THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Some jurisdictions also limit disclaimers or limitations of liability for personal injury from consumer products, so this limitation may not apply to personal injury claims.
16. Modifications to the Site and LPT
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Sites (or any features or parts thereof) or suspend or discontinue issuance of LPT at any time and without liability therefor.
17. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Livepeer and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
17.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Site or Content, to the LPT, or to any aspect of your relationship with Company, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Livepeer may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH Livepeer, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST Livepeer ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST Livepeer IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
17.2 Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent The Corporation Trust Company, 1209 Orange Street, Wilmington, DE 19801. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys' fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS's rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Livepeer will pay them for you. In addition, Livepeer will reimburse all such JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Livepeer will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
17.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement and (b) to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Livepeer. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum's rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
17.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND Livepeer HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Livepeer are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 16.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
17.5 Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (a) representative actions for public injunctive relief may be arbitrated on a class basis, and (b) in the event that the foregoing sentence is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute for recovery of damages, neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitration of such claim or dispute and instead the applicable claim or dispute shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 17.
17.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Livepeer, 85 Broad Street, New York, NY 10004, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. You may also submit your decision to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to register (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
17.7 Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
17.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Livepeer.
17.9 Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Livepeer makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to Livepeer.
18. Governing Law and Venue
