1.2 As the provider of the Flyp Platform, Flyp does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Lots, nor is Flyp a buyer, reseller, broker, wholesaler, manufacturer, or retailer. Clients alone are responsible for the Lots they submit and properly and honestly listing their Lots on the Flyp Platform. When a Client accepts an application made by a Pro Seller to sell the Client’s Lot, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Flyp is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Client and Pro Seller. Flyp is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Client or Pro Seller.
1.3 Flyp has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, accuracy, quality, or legality of any Lot, or (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Lot uploaded to the Flyp Platform, or (iii) the safe transport of Lots, or (iv) the performance or conduct of any Client, Pro Seller, or third party.

Flyp may restrict the availability of the Flyp Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Flyp Platform. Flyp may improve, enhance, and modify the Flyp Platform and introduce new Flyp Services from time to time.

4.13 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
4.13.1 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Flyp is committed to participating in a Client- and Pro Seller-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Flyp’s customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) using its specially designed Client Arbitration Rules (as modified by this section). Specifically, the Client Arbitration Rules provide:
Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org);
Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party;
Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;
The initial filing fee for the Pro Seller or Client is capped at $200;
The Pro Seller or Client gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents;
The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party’s individual claim.
4.13.2 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Flyp each agree to first notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact Flyp’s customer service team by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
4.13.3 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Flyp mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or relating to the use of the Flyp Platform, or the listing, shipping, or sale of any Lot (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Flyp agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
4.13.4 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Flyp each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
4.13.5 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Client Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
4.13.6 Modification of AAA Rules - Attorney’s Fees and Costs. You and Flyp agree that Flyp will be responsible for payment of the balance of any initial filing fee under the AAA Rules in excess of $200 for claims of $75,000 or less. Either party may be entitled to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if they prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules.
4.13.7 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
4.13.8 Jury Trial Waiver. You and Flyp acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
4.13.9 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Flyp acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or defendant in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and Flyp both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If the “class action lawsuit” waiver or the “class-wide arbitration” waiver in this Section 4.13.9 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute and the Dispute must proceed in court. If the “private attorney general action” waiver or the “representative proceeding” waiver in this Section 4.13.9 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, those waivers may be severed from this Arbitration Agreement and you and Flyp agree that any private attorney general claims and representative claims in the Dispute will be severed and stayed, pending the resolution of any arbitrable claims in the Dispute in individual arbitration.
4.14 Severability. In the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
4.15 Survival. This Section 4 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Flyp Platform or terminate your Flyp Account.
4.16. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
Regardless whether your country of residence or establishment is the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 4 must be brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, California, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in San Francisco, California.
4.17. General Provisions
4.17.1 Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, these Terms constitute the entire Agreement between Flyp and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Flyp and you in relation to the access to and use of the Flyp Platform.
4.17.2 No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Flyp as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Flyp Platform.
4.17.3 These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.
4.17.4 If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
4.17.5 Flyp’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
4.17.6 You may not assign, transfer, or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without Flyp's prior written consent. Flyp may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at its sole discretion, with 30 days prior notice. Your right to terminate this Agreement at any time remains unaffected.
4.17.7 Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Clients permitted or required under this Agreement, will be provided electronically, and given by Flyp via email, Flyp Platform notification, or messaging service (including SMS and push).
