Unless otherwise specified in the Agreement, all SNS Content shall be considered to be Your Content (as defined in Section 7.1) for all purposes of the Agreement. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on FYI Properties.

Payments Fees and Subscription Terms.
General. You agree to pay all fees or charges in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable, as set forth on FYI’s pricing page available at [https://fyi.me/], or as otherwise provided by you on your FYI landing page. You must provide FYI with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account (“Payment Provider”) in order to purchase any of the options and/or subscriptions offered on the Services. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card or PayPal account, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing FYI with your credit card number or PayPal account and associated payment information, you agree that FYI is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to FYI hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify FYI of any change in your billing address or the credit card or PayPal account used for payment hereunder. FYI reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on FYI Properties or by e-mail delivery to you.
Subscription Automatic Renewal. As a Paid User, you will be responsible for payment of the applicable subscription fee for the Services (the “Subscription Fee”). Your subscription as a Paid User will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement. After your initial monthly subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at FYI’s then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription prior to the Renewal Commencement Date by logging into your Account and going to the “Change/Cancel Subscription” page of your “Account Settings” page. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, you can manage your subscription by logging into your Account and going to the “Change/Cancel Subscription” page of your “Account Settings” page. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Subscription Fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize FYI to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if FYI does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that FYI may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
Payments to You. You have the ability to set the prices displayed to followers for any Products and/or Subscriptions offered on the Services. You acknowledge and agree that FYI is entitled to collect the Gross Revenues (as defined below), and that prior to paying you, FYI will deduct any credit card processing fees associated with the payment by FYI to you of such Gross Revenues, and FYI shall retain a percentage of the Gross Revenues. “Gross Revenues” means all revenue received by FYI from any Product and/or Subscription transaction. FYI will then remit the remaining amount to your Account, at which point you may claim the funds from your Account.
Taxes. The payments required under Section 5.2 of this Agreement do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the Services provided under this Agreement. If FYI determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, FYI shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 5.2 of this Agreement. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to FYI, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify FYI for any liability or expense FYI may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon FYI’s request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
Withholding Taxes. You agree to make all payments of fees to FYI free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to FYI will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide FYI with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
Disputes. You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following address: FYI.FYI, Inc., 10960 Wilshire Blvd., 5th Floor, Los Angeles, California 90024.
Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion that provides Paid level access to the Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of the Services will expire, and any further use of the Services is prohibited unless you pay the applicable Service Subscription Fee for any such Paid User level access.
Relationship of the Parties. Any agreements created between Users are not binding on us. We are not liable for, or obligated to enforce, any agreements between Users, including any Product and/or Subscription. You will not consider FYI, nor will FYI be construed as, a party to such transactions, whether or not FYI receives some form of remuneration in connection with the transaction, and FYI will not be liable for any costs or damages arising out of or related to such transaction. No contractual obligations are created with us with respect to such transactions or agreements, and in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release FYI (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
Responsibility for Content.
Types of Content. You acknowledge that all Content, including the FYI Properties, is the sole responsibility of the party from whom such Content originated. This means that you, and not FYI, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, e-mail, transmit or otherwise share or make available (“Make Available”) through the FYI Properties (“Your Content”), and that you and other Users of the FYI Properties, and not FYI, are similarly responsible for all Content they Make Available through the FYI Properties (“User Content”).

You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the transmission of Your Content, including without limitation messages that you send using the Services. In the event that FYI pre-screens, refuses or removes any Content, you acknowledge that FYI will do so for FYI’s benefit, not yours. Without limiting the foregoing, FYI shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the Agreement or is otherwise objectionable.

Certain Services may enable you to specify the level at which such Services restrict access to Your Content. You are solely responsible for applying the appropriate level of access to Your Content. If you do not choose, the system may default to its most permissive setting.

In addition to terminating or suspending your Account, FYI reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress. Even after your right to use the Services is terminated or suspended, this Agreement will remain enforceable against you.
Termination of Services by You. If you want to terminate the Services provided by FYI, you may do so by closing your Account for all the Services that you use.
Effect of Termination. Termination of any Service includes removal of access to such Service and barring of further use of the Service. Termination of all Services also includes deletion of your password and all related information, files and Content associated with or inside your Account (or any part thereof), including Your Content. Upon termination of any Service, your right to use such Service will automatically terminate immediately. You understand that any termination of Services may involve deletion of Your Content associated therewith from our live databases.

Violations. If FYI becomes aware of any possible violations by you of the Agreement, FYI reserves the right to investigate such violations. If, as a result of the investigation, FYI believes that criminal activity has occurred, FYI reserves the right to refer the matter to, and to cooperate with, any and all applicable legal authorities. FYI is entitled, except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, to disclose any information or materials on or in the FYI Properties, including Your Content, to (1) comply with applicable laws, legal process or governmental request; (2) enforce the Agreement; (3) respond to any claims that Your Content violates the rights of third parties; (4) respond to your requests for customer service; (5) protect the rights, property or personal safety of FYI, its Users or the public; or (6) in connection with all enforcement actions or investigations or other government officials, as FYI in its sole discretion believes to be necessary or appropriate.

International Users. This Website and the Application can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to FYI Properties and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that FYI intends to announce such FYI Properties or Content in your country. The FYI Properties are controlled and offered by FYI from its facilities in the United States of America. FYI makes no representations that the FYI Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the FYI Properties from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
Arbitration Agreement. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires that you and FYI arbitrate disputes against one another. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS SECTION 18 CONTAINS PROVISIONS GOVERNING HOW DISPUTES THAT YOU AND FYI HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER WILL BE RESOLVED. AMONG OTHER THINGS, THIS SECTION 18 INCLUDES AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE WHICH REQUIRES, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND FYI BE RESOLVED BY BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. THIS SECTION 18 ALSO CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION 18 CAREFULLY.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. Subject to the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, you and FYI agree that any dispute, claim, disagreements arising out of or relating in any way to your access to or use of the Services, any communications you receive, any products sold or distributed through the Services or the Agreement and prior versions of the Agreement, including claims and disputes that arose between us before the effective date of this Agreement (each, a “Dispute”) will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that: (1) you and FYI may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if such claims qualify and remain in small claims court; and (2) you or FYI 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). For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, “Dispute” will also include disputes that arose or involve facts occurring before the existence of this or any prior versions of the Agreement as well as claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
Informal Dispute Resolution. There might be instances when a Dispute arises between you and FYI. If that occurs, FYI is committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution. You and FYI agree that good faith informal efforts to resolve Disputes can result in a prompt, low‐cost and mutually beneficial outcome. You and FYI therefore agree that before either party commences arbitration against the other (or initiates an action in small claims court if a party so elects), we will personally meet and confer telephonically or via videoconference, in a good faith effort to resolve informally any Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement (“Informal Dispute Resolution Conference”). If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you will also participate in the conference.
The party initiating a Dispute must give notice to the other party in writing of its intent to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference (“Notice”), which shall occur within 45 days after the other party receives such Notice, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by the parties. Notice to FYI that you intend to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference should be sent by mail to our offices located at FYI.FYI, Inc., 10960 Wilshire Blvd., 5th Floor, Los Angeles, California 90024. The Notice must include: (1) your name, telephone number, mailing address, email address associated with your account (if you have one); (2) the name, telephone number, mailing address and e‐mail address of your counsel, if any; and (3) a description of your Dispute.
The Informal Dispute Resolution Conference shall be individualized such that a separate conference must be held each time either party initiates a Dispute, even if the same law firm or group of law firms represents multiple users in similar cases, unless all parties agree; multiple individuals initiating a Dispute cannot participate in the same Informal Dispute Resolution Conference unless all parties agree. In the time between a party receiving the Notice and the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference, nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall prohibit the parties from engaging in informal communications to resolve the initiating party’s Dispute. Engaging in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference is a condition precedent and requirement that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process required by this section.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND FYI 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 FYI are instead electing that all Disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in the subsection entitled “Applicability of Arbitration Agreement” above. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND FYI AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration”, EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, AND THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE BE BROUGHT, HEARD, ADMINISTERED, RESOLVED, OR ARBITRATED ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR MASS ACTION BASIS. ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND DISPUTES OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. Subject to this Arbitration Agreement, 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 the party's individual claim. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to, nor shall it, affect the terms and conditions under the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration.” Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Arbitration Agreement, if a court decides by means of a final decision, not subject to any further appeal or recourse, that the limitations of this subsection, “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief,” are invalid or unenforceable as to a particular claim or request for relief (such as a request for public injunctive relief), you and FYI agree that that particular claim or request for relief (and only that particular claim or request for relief) shall be severed from the arbitration and may be litigated in the state or federal courts located in the State of California. All other Disputes shall be arbitrated or litigated in small claims court. This subsection does not prevent you or FYI from participating in a class-wide settlement of claims.
Rules and Forum. The Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce; and notwithstanding any other provision herein with respect to the applicable substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement and any arbitration proceedings. If the Informal Dispute Resolution Process described above does not resolve satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after receipt of your Notice, you and FYI agree that either party shall have the right to finally resolve the Dispute through binding arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this section of this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are currently available at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf.
A party who wishes to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a request for arbitration (the “Request”). The Request must include: (1) the name, telephone number, mailing address, e‐mail address of the party seeking arbitration and the account username (if applicable) as well as the email address associated with any applicable account; (2) a statement of the legal claims being asserted and the factual bases of those claims; (3) a description of the remedy sought and an accurate, good‐faith calculation of the amount in controversy in United States Dollars; (4) a statement certifying completion of the Informal Dispute Resolution process as described above; and (5) evidence that the requesting party has paid any necessary filing fees in connection with such arbitration.
If the party requesting arbitration is represented by counsel, the Request shall also include counsel’s name, telephone number, mailing address, and email address. Such counsel must also sign the Request. By signing the Request, counsel certifies to the best of counsel’s knowledge, information, and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, that: (1) the Request is not being presented for any improper purpose, such as to harass, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution; (2) the claims, defenses and other legal contentions are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law; and (3) the factual and damages contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery.
Unless you and FYI otherwise agree, or the Batch Arbitration process discussed in the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration” is triggered, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator may direct a limited and reasonable exchange of information between the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. Your responsibility to pay any AAA fees and costs will be solely as set forth in the applicable AAA Rules.
You and FYI agree that all materials and documents exchanged during the arbitration proceedings shall be kept confidential and shall not be shared with anyone except the parties’ attorneys, accountants, or business advisors, and then subject to the condition that they agree to keep all materials and documents exchanged during the arbitration proceedings confidential.
Arbitrator. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty-five (35) days of delivery of the Request, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules, provided that if the Batch Arbitration process under the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration” is triggered, the AAA will appoint the arbitrator for each batch.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute, including, without limitation, disputes arising out of or related to the interpretation or application of the Arbitration Agreement, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or any portion of the Arbitration Agreement, except for the following: (1) all Disputes arising out of or relating to the subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief,” including any claim that all or part of the subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief” is unenforceable, illegal, void or voidable, or that such subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief” has been breached, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (2) except as expressly contemplated in the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration,” all Disputes about the payment of arbitration fees shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (3) all Disputes about whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; and (4) all Disputes about which version of the Arbitration Agreement applies shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties, except as expressly provided in the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration.” The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Dispute. 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 award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Attorneys’ Fees and Costs. The parties shall bear their own attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the Dispute or the relief sought in the Request was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). If you or FYI need to invoke the authority of a court of competent jurisdiction to compel arbitration, then the party that obtains an order compelling arbitration in such action shall have the right to collect from the other party its reasonable costs, necessary disbursements, and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in securing an order compelling arbitration. The prevailing party in any court action relating to whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration, including the Informal Dispute Resolution Process, is entitled to recover their reasonable costs, necessary disbursements, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
Batch Arbitration. To increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of arbitrations, you and FYI agree that in the event that there are one hundred (100) or more individual Requests of a substantially similar nature filed against FYI by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or organizations, within a thirty (30) day period (or as soon as possible thereafter), the AAA shall (1) administer the arbitration demands in batches of 100 Requests per batch (plus, to the extent there are less than 100 Requests left over after the batching described above, a final batch consisting of the remaining Requests); (2) appoint one arbitrator for each batch; and (3) provide for the resolution of each batch as a single consolidated arbitration with one set of filing and administrative fees due per side per batch, one procedural calendar, one hearing (if any) in a place to be determined by the arbitrator, and one final award (“Batch Arbitration”).
All parties agree that Requests are of a “substantially similar nature” if they arise out of or relate to the same event or factual scenario and raise the same or similar legal issues and seek the same or similar relief. To the extent the parties disagree on the application of the Batch Arbitration process, the disagreeing party shall advise the AAA, and the AAA shall appoint a sole standing arbitrator to determine the applicability of the Batch Arbitration process (“Administrative Arbitrator”). In an effort to expedite resolution of any such dispute by the Administrative Arbitrator, the parties agree the Administrative Arbitrator may set forth such procedures as are necessary to resolve any disputes promptly. The Administrative Arbitrator’s fees shall be paid by FYI.
You and FYI agree to cooperate in good faith with the AAA to implement the Batch Arbitration process including the payment of single filing and administrative fees for batches of Requests, as well as any steps to minimize the time and costs of arbitration, which may include: (1) the appointment of a discovery special master to assist the arbitrator in the resolution of discovery disputes; and (2) the adoption of an expedited calendar of the arbitration proceedings.
This Batch Arbitration provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing a class, collective and/or mass arbitration or action of any kind, or arbitration involving joint or consolidated claims under any circumstances, except as expressly set forth in this provision.
