4.2.4 Additional Considerations
22.214.171.124 Transactions Are Recorded on the Public Blockchains.
Transactions that take place on the Platform are managed and confirmed via public blockchains including but not limited to the Ethereum blockchain. The User understands that its public address on the relevant blockchain will be made publicly visible whenever it engages in a transaction on the Platform. We neither own nor control MetaMask, or any other Wallet, the Ethereum network, or any other blockchain network We choose to interface with, or any other third-party site, product, or service that Users might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling the user to access and utilize the various features of the Platform. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that a User may suffer as a result of its transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties.
All transactions on the Platform are facilitated by smart contracts existing on a blockchain network. Blockchain networks generally require the payment of a transaction fee for every transaction. For example, the Ethereum network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network, and thus every transaction occurring on the Platform through the Ethereum network. The value of the Gas Fee changes, often unpredictably, and is entirely outside of the control of Company or the Platform. User acknowledges that under no circumstances will a transaction on the Platform, including payment of the Pro Fee be invalidated, revocable, retractable, or otherwise unenforceable on the basis that the Gas Fee for the given transaction was unknown, too high, or otherwise unacceptable to User.

Such limited license may be revoked at any time in FLIPS LABS’s sole discretion.

13. GENERAL TERMS
The waiver by FLIPS LABS of a breach of any provision contained herein shall be in writing and shall in no way be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of such provision or the waiver of the provision itself.
13.3 Governing Law & Jurisdiction.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Wyoming, U.S.A. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts in the city of Austin, Texas, U.S.A. in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Website not subject to the Arbitration Agreement outlined in 13.4.
13.4 Dispute Resolution.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with FLIPS LABS and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. It is part of your contract with FLIPS LABS and affects your rights. It contains procedures of MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
13.4.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement.
All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Agreement or the use of any product or service provided by FLIPS LABS that cannot be resolved informally shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and FLIPS LABS, and to any subsidiaries, Affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
13.4.2 Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution.
Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. After the Notice is received, you and FLIPS LABS may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and FLIPS LABS do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
13.4.3 Arbitration Procedure.
Arbitration shall be held in Austin, Texas, and the arbitrator will be agreed upon by both parties. Arbitration of all disputes and the outcome of the arbitration will remain confidential between the Parties except as necessary to obtain a court judgement on the award or other relief or to engage in collection of the judgement. The Parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in Austin, Texas, with respect to this section to compel arbitration, to confirm an arbitration award or order, or to handle court functions. The Parties irrevocably waive defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any such action or other proceeding. The Parties may seek recognition and enforcement of any state court judgment confirming an arbitration award or order in any United States state court or any court outside the United States or its territories having jurisdiction with respect to recognition or enforcement of such judgment. This provision for arbitration will not preclude a party from seeking temporary or preliminary injunctive relief (“Provisional Relief”) in a court of law while arbitration proceedings are pending in order to protect its rights pending a final determination by the arbitrator, nor will the filing of such an action for Provisional Relief constitute waiver by a party of its right to seek arbitration. Any Provisional Relief granted by such court will remain effective until otherwise modified by the arbitrator.
13.4.4 Waiver of Jury Trial.
THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and FLIPS LABS in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND FLIPS LABS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
13.4.5. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
13.4.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out.
You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Wallet address, and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with the Company.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
13.4.9 Right to Waive.
Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.

This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with FLIPS LABS.
13.4.11 Emergency Equitable Relief.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
13.4.12 Claims Not Subject to Arbitration.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state courts located in the city of Austin, Texas for such purpose.
13.5 Attorneys’ Fees and Costs.
In addition to any relief, order, or award that is entered by an arbiter, or court as the case may be, any Party found to be the substantially losing Party in any dispute shall be required to pay the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of any Party determined to be the substantially prevailing Party, and such losing Party, shall also reimburse or pay any of the arbitrator’s fees and expenses incurred by the prevailing Party in any arbitration. In the context of this Agreement, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs shall include but not be limited to:
13.5.1 legal fees and costs, the fees and costs of witnesses, accountants, experts, and other professionals, and any other forum costs incurred during, or in preparation for, a dispute;
13.5.2 all of the foregoing whether incurred before or after the initiation of a Proceeding; and
13.5.3 all such fees and costs incurred in obtaining Provisional Relief.
It is understood that certain time entries that may appear in the billing records of such Party’s legal counsel may be redacted to protect attorney-client or work-product privilege, and this will not prevent recovery for the associated billings.
13.6 Third Party Beneficiaries.
Except as limited by Section 13.7, this Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended to confer upon any person, other than the parties and their successors and permitted assigns, any of the rights hereunder.
