Terms of Service
Adopted: June 15, 2020
Welcome to the Clipper app (www.clipper.exchange), a website-hosted user interface (the “Interface”) made available by Shipyard Software Inc. (“we”, “our”, or “us”). The Interface provides access to a decentralized protocol on the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to trade cryptocurrencies on a peer-to-peer basis (the “Protocol”). Additionally, you can access the Protocol through third-party web or mobile interfaces. You are responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand the fees and risks they present. These Terms of Use and any terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference (collectively, the “Terms”) govern your access and use of the Interface. You must read the Terms carefully. By accessing, browsing or otherwise using the Interface, or by acknowledging agreement to the Terms on the Interface, you agree that you have read, understood and accepted all of the Terms and our Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which is incorporated by reference into the Terms.

Please check the Terms periodically for changes. Any changes to the Terms will apply on the date that they are made, and your continued access or use of the Interface after the Terms have been updated will constitute your binding acceptance of the updates. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, then you should not continue to access or use the Interface.

Accordingly, some of the disclaimers and limitations set forth in the Terms may not apply to you. This limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law.

13. Dispute Resolution

We will use our best efforts to resolve any potential disputes through informal, good faith negotiations.

If we are not able to reach an informal resolution within sixty days of your email, then you and we both agree to resolve the potential dispute according to the process set forth below. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Interface, the Terms, or any other acts or omissions for which you may contend that we are liable, including (but not limited to) any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be decided solely and exclusively by binding arbitration in the State of Delaware., administered by JAMS. Such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then prevailing JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, with the following exceptions to such rules if in conflict: (a) one arbitrator shall be chosen by JAMS; (b) each party to the arbitration will pay an equal share of the expenses and fees of the arbitrator, together with other expenses of the arbitration incurred or approved by the arbitrator; and (c) arbitration may proceed in the absence of any party if written notice (pursuant to JAMS’ rules and regulations) of the proceedings has been given to such party. The parties agree to abide by all decisions and awards rendered in such proceedings. Such decisions and awards rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and conclusive. All such controversies, claims or disputes shall be decided in this manner in lieu of any action at law or equity. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE BECOMES NOT APPLICABLE, THEN EACH PARTY (A) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY AS TO ANY ISSUE RELATING HERETO IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS SAFE OR ANY OTHER MATTERS INVOLVING THE PARTIES AND (B) SUBMITS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE FEDERAL OR DISTRICT COURTS LOCATED IN THE STATE OF DELAWARE., AND EACH PARTY AGREES NOT TO INSTITUTE ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY OTHER COURT IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION. Each party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Safe in the courts referred to in this Section 13.

14. Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver

You must bring any and all Disputes against us in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff in or member of any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding. This provision applies to class arbitration. You and we both agree to waive the right to demand a trial by jury.

15. Governing Law

You agree that the laws of the state of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, govern the Terms and any Dispute between you and us.

16. Force Majeure

We shall not be liable for delays, failure in performance or interruption of service which result directly or indirectly from any cause or condition beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to, significant market volatility, any delay or failure due to any act of God, act of civil or military authorities, act of terrorists, civil disturbance, war, strike or other labor dispute, fire, interruption in telecommunications or Internet services or network provider services, failure of equipment and/or software, other catastrophe or any other occurrence which is beyond our reasonable control and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
