Internet Security. Alpaca Tarot uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the Site and Application are generally available. However, there will be occasions when access to the Site or Application will be interrupted or unavailable. Alpaca Tarot will use reasonable efforts to minimize such disruption where it is within its reasonable control.

Please be advised that Alpaca Tarot does not guarantee that any information sent from our Site or Application will be secure during transmission, nor can Alpaca Tarot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to Alpaca Tarot via the Site or Application or the Internet, including, for example, personal information such as your name or address.
Complaint Procedures. If you believe that any content or postings on this Site or Application violates your intellectual property or other rights, please notify Alpaca Tarot by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a comprehensive detailed message setting forth the following information: (a) your name and the name of your company, if any; (b) your contact information, including your email address; (c) the nature and substance of your complaint, the specific rights at issue, and your basis for making the complaint, including the content or posting that is objectionable; and (d) the following statement: “The statements, representations, and assertions made in this message are true, complete, and accurate and I have the full legal authority to make each and every such statement, representation, and assertion and to make and be granted any demand made in this message.”
15.1 Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”). Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow the terms of these Terms, as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Arbitration shall take place in San Diego, CA unless We elect otherwise.
15.2 The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of CA, without regard to any conflict-of-law rules or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Site users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Site user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, we will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by Us should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your demand for arbitration and We will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, we will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the costs of accessing arbitration from being prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by us on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this agreement to arbitrate shall still apply.
15.3 You can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty days after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. You must complete the Opt-Out Notice form by providing the information called for in the form, including your name, address (including street number and address, city, state, and zip code), phone number, and the email address used to log in to the Alpaca Tarot account to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us
Changes to these Terms; Termination. Alpaca Tarot reserves the right at any time to modify, alter or update these Terms. Your use of the Site or Application following any changes means that you agree to follow and be bound by the terms as changed. Any change to these Terms shall be effective as to any visitor who has visited the Site or Application before the change was made. It is the obligation of users visiting the Site or Application before the change to learn of changes to the Terms since their last visit. Alpaca Tarot may suspend or terminate your account and/or your ability to use the Site, Application, or any services on the Site or Application, for failure to comply with these Terms, for providing Alpaca Tarot with untrue or inaccurate information about yourself, for infringement upon Alpaca Tarot proprietary rights, or for any other reason whatsoever or for no reason.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms represent the entire agreement between you and Alpaca Tarot with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior and contemporaneous written and oral representations, understandings, and agreements, express and implied, and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the CA, without reference to its conflict of law rules. You hereby consent and agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in San Diego, CA, and you hereby irrevocably waive the right to trial by jury and any jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
Miscellaneous. The Site and Application are controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Alpaca Tarot makes no representation that the Site, Application, Site Materials, services, products, information or other materials available on, in, or through the Site or Application is appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site or Application from other locations do so on their own volition and are fully responsible for compliance with applicable laws. The waiver or failure of Alpaca Tarot to exercise in any respect any right provided hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver of such right in the future or a waiver of any of other rights established under these Terms. Headings used in these Terms are for reference only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms. No person or entity not party to this agreement will be deemed to be a third party beneficiary of these Terms or any provision hereof. When used herein, the words “includes” and “including” and their syntactical variations shall be deemed followed by the words “without limitation.”
