We May Amend the Service and These Terms
We may update the content, materials, and features of the Service from time to time. Please be advised that any content contained on the Service may not necessarily be complete or up-to-date. Any of the material on the Service may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes become effectively immediately when we post them. It is your responsibility to check the Site from time to time so you are aware of any changes. If you continue to use the Service after we post revised Terms, you signify your agreement to such revised Terms. However, we will notify you of material changes to the Terms by posting a notice on the Site and sending an email to the email address you provided to us upon registration. For this additional reason, you should keep your contact and profile information current.
Email is Not Sufficient to Provide Legal Notice to the Company
Communications made through the Service’s e-mail and messaging system, if and when available, will not constitute legal notice to the Company or any of its officers, employees, agents or representatives in any situation where notice to the Company is required by contract or any law or regulation.
You Consent to Electronic Communications
You Assume Any Risk of Using the Service
The information presented on or through the Service is made available solely for general information purposes. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by you or any other visitor to the Site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION
All claims and disputes arising from your use of the Service or these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Any claims or disputes where the total amount sought is less than $10,000 USD may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at Malartu’s election. The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction and the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Malartu. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will 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 these Terms. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of a 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. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Both parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted on an individual basis, and not as a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. Both parties also agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
This provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement or any other agreement.

Although Malartu has no obligation to monitor any Client or User’s use of the Service, Malartu may do so, and may prohibit any use of the Service that it believes may be (or alleged to be) in violation of the foregoing.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
All matters relating to the Service, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of North Carolina without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of North Carolina or any other jurisdiction). Any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Service shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of North Carolina in each case located in the City of Raleigh and County of Wake. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver of by the Company of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company 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.
