Any dispute or claim by you arising out of or related to these Terms shall be governed by Minnesota law, exclusive of its choice of law rules.

You and GameMill agree to waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts (without affecting either party’s rights to remove a case to federal court if permissible), as well as any right to a jury trial. The Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply. Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter will not apply to these Terms. This paragraph will be interpreted as broadly as applicable law permits.
9. BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION; NO CLASS ACTIONS
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Most issues can be resolved quickly and amicably by contacting GameMill, but we understand that sometimes disputes can’t be easily resolved by customer support. This Section explains how You and GameMill agree to resolve those disputes, including (where applicable) by binding, individual arbitration.
Arbitration is an alternative dispute-resolution procedure that allows us to resolve issues without the formality of going to court. Any dispute between You and GameMillis submitted to a neutral arbitrator (not a judge or jury) for fair and fast resolution. Arbitration is more efficient for both you and GameMill.
1. Informal Resolution:
If you have an issue that our customer support can’t resolve, prior to starting arbitration You and GameMill agree to attempt to resolve the dispute informally to help get us to a resolution and control costs for both parties. You and GameMill agree to make a good-faith effort to negotiate any dispute between us for at least 30 days (“Informal Resolution”). Those informal negotiations will start on the day You or GameMill receive a written Notice of a Dispute in accordance with these Terms.
You will send your Notice of Dispute to Madcow, LLC, ATTN: NOTICE OF DISPUTE, 6600 France Avenue South, Suite 680, Edina, MN 55345. Include your name, any relevant account name you use, address, how to contact you, what the problem is, and what you want GameMill to do. If GameMill has a dispute with You, GameMill will send our Notice of Dispute to your registered email address and any billing address You have provided us.
If you reside in the European Union (“EU”), You may also be entitled to submit Your complaint to the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Platform. ODR allows EU consumers to resolve disputes related to the online purchases of goods and services without going to court.
If the dispute isn’t resolved within by Informal Resolution or small-claims court (below), You or GameMill may start an arbitration in accordance with these Terms.
2. Small Claims Court:
Instead of using Informal Resolution, You and GameMill agree that You may sue us in small-claims court in your choice of the county where you live or Hennepin County, Minnesota (if you meet the requirements of small-claims court). We hope you’ll try Informal Resolution first, but you don’t have to before going to small-claims court.
3. Binding Individual Arbitration:
THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS IN THIS SECTION WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY.
You and GameMill agree that Disputes will be settled by binding individual arbitration conducted by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) subject to the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and according to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”) as modified by these Terms.
This means that You and GameMill agree to a dispute-resolution process where we submit any Dispute to a neutral arbitrator (not a judge or jury) that makes the final decision to resolve the Dispute. JAMS uses experienced professionals to arbitrate disputes, which helps You and GameMill resolve any disputes fairly, but more quickly and efficiently than going to court. The arbitrator may award the same remedies to you individually as a court could, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
The arbitrator’s decision is final, except for a limited review by courts under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, and can enforced like any other court order or judgment.
3.1 Disputes We Agree to Arbitrate:
You and GameMill agree to submit all Disputes between You and GameMill to individual binding arbitration. “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy (except those specifically exempted below) between You and GameMill that relates to your use or attempted use of GameMill’s products or services and GameMill’s products and services generally, including without limitation the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Binding Individual Arbitration section.
You and GameMill agree to arbitrate all Disputes regardless of whether the Dispute is based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory.
The Informal Resolution and Arbitration sections do not apply to (1) individual actions in small-claims court; (2) pursuit of enforcement actions through a government agency if the law allows; (3) a complaint or remedy under the EU General Data Protection Regulation; (4) an action to compel or uphold any prior arbitration decision; (5) GameMill’s right to seek injunctive relief against You in a court of law to preserve the status quo while an arbitration proceeds; (6) claims of piracy, creation, distribution, or promotion of Cheats, and intellectual-property infringement, and (7) the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below.
You and GameMill agree that whether a dispute is subject to arbitration under these Terms will be determined by the arbitrator rather than a court.
3.2 Arbitration Procedure:
To start an arbitration, review the JAMS Rules and follow the instructions for initiating an arbitration on the JAMS website. The party starting an arbitration must send JAMS a “Demand for Arbitration” (available on its website), pay a filing fee, and mail a copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the opposing party. You will send a copy to Madcow, LLC, ATTN: NOTICE OF DISPUTE, 6600 France Avenue South, Suite 680, Edina, MN 55345. GameMill will send our copy to your registered email address and any billing address You have provided us.
The arbitration will be conducted by a single JAMS arbitrator selected with substantial experience in resolving intellectual-property and commercial-contract disputes. You and GameMill both agree that the arbitration will be conducted in the English language and that the arbitrator will be bound by these Terms.
If an in-person hearing is required, the hearing will take place either in Hennepin County, MN, or where You reside; you choose.
The arbitrator (not a judge or jury) will resolve the Dispute. Unless You and GameMill agree otherwise, any decision or award will include a written statement stating the decision of each claim and the basis for the award, including the arbitrator’s essential factual and legal findings and conclusions.
The arbitrator may only award legal or equitable remedies that are requested by You or GameMill to satisfy one of our individual claims (that the arbitrator determines are supported by credible relevant evidence). The arbitrator may not award relief against GameMill respecting any person other than You.
Any decision or award may be enforced as a final judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction or, if applicable, application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement.
3.3 Arbitration Fees and Location:
If You start the arbitration, you must pay the JAMS filing fee required for consumer arbitrations.
In some situations, GameMill will help with your fees to (hopefully) get us to a resolution quickly and fairly:
If the Dispute involves $10,000 or less, GameMill will pay all of the JAMS costs, including the fees you otherwise would have been required to pay.
If the above doesn’t apply to You, but You demonstrate that arbitration costs will be prohibitive compared to litigation costs, GameMill will pay as much of your JAMS costs as the arbitrator finds is necessary to prevent arbitration from being cost-prohibitive (as compared to the cost of litigation).
Even if GameMill wins the arbitration and the applicable law or the JAMS Rules allow GameMill to seek our portion of the JAMS fees from you, we won’t.
The fee assistance offered above is contingent upon You bringing the arbitration claim in “good faith”. If the arbitrator finds You brought an arbitration claim against GameMill for an improper purpose, frivolously, or without a sufficient pre-claim investigation into the facts or applicable law, then the payment of all fees will be governed by the JAMS rules.
JAMS costs do not include your Attorneys’ fees and costs and Attorneys’ fees and JAMS costs are not counted when determining how much a dispute involves.
GameMill won’t seek our attorneys’ fees or expenses from you in any arbitration, even if the law or the JAMS rules entitle us to do so. If you choose to be represented by an attorney, you will pay your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless the applicable law provides otherwise.
3.4 Notice and Filing:
If a Dispute must be arbitrated, You or GameMill must start arbitration of the Dispute within two (2) years from when the Dispute first arose. If applicable law requires you to bring a claim for a Dispute sooner than two years after the Dispute first arose, you must start arbitration in that earlier time period. GameMill encourages You to tell us about a Dispute as soon as possible so we can work to resolve it. The failure to provide timely notice shall bar all claims.
3.5 Continuation in Effect:
This Binding Individual Arbitration section survives any termination of these Terms or GameMill’s provision of services to You.
3.6 Future Terms Changes:
Although GameMill may revise these Terms in its discretion, GameMill does not have the right to alter these Terms to arbitrate or the rules specified herein with respect to any Dispute once that Dispute has commenced.
4. Class Action Waiver:
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, You and GameMill agree to only bring Disputes in an individual capacity and shall not:
seek to bring, join, or participate in any class or representative action, collective or class-wide arbitration, or any other action where another individual or entity acts in a representative capacity (e.g., private attorney general actions); or
consolidate or combine individual proceedings or permit an arbitrator to do so without the express consent of all parties to these Terms and all other actions or arbitrations.
If all or any provision of this Binding Individual Arbitration agreement is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then You and GameMill agree that the provision will be severed and the rest of these Terms shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, You and GameMill agree that it will not be severable; this entire Binding Individual Arbitration section will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the venue and choice of clauses specified in these Terms. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without GameMill’s express consent.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, the controlling language for these Terms is English. It is the express wish of the parties that these Terms and all related documents have been drawn up in English. Les parties déclarent qu’elles ont demandé et par les présentes confirment leur desir exprés que cette convention soit rédigee en anglais. Any translation has been provided for your convenience.
11. WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
No waiver of these Terms by GameMill shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition, and any failure of GameMill to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect.
12. NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable law, GameMill has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances as determined by GameMill, users or account holders who are deemed to be repeat infringers of the copyrights of others.
