This Agreement and any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement (“Dispute”) will be governed as to all matters, including, but not limited to the validity, construction and performance of this Agreement, by and under the laws of the state of California, without giving effect to conflict of laws principles thereof.
Each party agrees that before it seeks mediation, arbitration, or any other form of legal relief it shall provide written notice to the other of the specific issues in dispute (and referencing the specific portions of the Agreement which are allegedly being breached). Within thirty days after such notice, knowledgeable executives of the party or the individuals themselves shall hold at least one meeting (in person or by video- or tele-conference) for the purpose of attempting in good faith to resolve the Dispute. The parties agree to maintain the confidential nature of all disputes and disagreements between them, including, but not limited to, informal negotiations, mediation or arbitration, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct these dispute resolution procedures or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision. The dispute resolution procedures in this Section shall not apply prior to a party seeking a provisional remedy related to claims of misappropriation or ownership of intellectual property, or trade secrets.
You agree that any dispute relating in any way to Your use of the Platform shall be submitted to confidential binding arbitration. If there is a dispute about whether this arbitration provision can be enforced or applies to the Dispute, You and Ember Fund agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue. However, any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
Arbitration under this Agreement is under the Federal Arbitration Act which governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) then in effect, except as modified here. Arbitration shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator as selected pursuant to the Rules; the arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The location of the arbitration shall be Los Angeles, CA or a location agreed upon by the parties. Where a Dispute does not exceed $15,000 such Dispute shall be arbitrated solely via pleadings and documents. Each party shall be responsible for their own arbitration fees and costs. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Platform or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever banned (. In the event that the law does not permit the abovementioned dispute to be resolved through arbitration, You agree that any actions shall be brought solely in a court of competent jurisdiction located within or otherwise nearest to Los Angeles, CA. For a copy of the Rules, please visit www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
User has the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date You first accepted this Agreement by notifying us at with a communication labeled “Arbitration Opt Out” to email@example.com or by mail at Ember Fund, Inc. 12130 Millennium Drive 02-174, Los Angeles, CA 90094. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include Your full name, any account information, and must clearly indicate Your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. If You have decided to opt-out of Binding Arbitration, all Disputes shall be heard in a court of competent jurisdiction located within Los Angeles County, CA.

Such claims shall be brought before a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction located within Los Angeles County, CA.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND EMBER FUND MAY EACH BRING CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS (“CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND EMBER FUND BOTH ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PURSUE OR HAVE A DISPUTE RESOLVED AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS SUBSECTION (B) SHALL NOT APPLY TO REPRESENTATIVE PRIVATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL ACT CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST EMBER FUND, WHICH ARE ADDRESSED SEPARATELY.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Arbitration provisions or any associated rules or the, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability or validity of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which: (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable as to any Disputes (defined below), the class, collective, and/or representative action on such Disputes must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the Class Action Waiver shall be enforced in arbitration on an individual basis as to all other Claims to the fullest extent possible.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the Arbitration Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by law: (1) You and Ember Fund agree not to bring a representative action on behalf of others under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (“PAGA”), California Labor Code § 2698 et seq., in any court or in arbitration, and (2) for any claim brought on a private attorney general basis, including under the California PAGA, both You and Ember Fund agree that any such dispute shall be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis only (i.e., to resolve whether You have personally been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law), and that such an action may not be used to resolve the claims or rights of other individuals in a single or collective proceeding (i.e., to resolve whether other individuals have been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law) (collectively, “representative PAGA Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the arbitration section or the associated rules, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability or validity of this representative PAGA Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If any provision of this representative PAGA Waiver is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (i) the unenforceable provision shall be severed from this Agreement; (ii) severance of the unenforceable provision shall have no impact whatsoever on any arbitration provisions or the requirement that any remaining Claims be arbitrated on an individual basis pursuant to the arbitration provisions; and (iii) any such representative PAGA or other representative private attorneys general act claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. To the extent that there are any Disputes to be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction because a civil court of competent jurisdiction determines that the representative PAGA Waiver is unenforceable with respect to those Disputes, the parties agree that litigation of those Disputes shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual Disputes in arbitration.
You agree that we are not responsible to You for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it. Any ambiguities shall be interpreted by its plain meaning.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement or any other agreement You may have with Ember Fund are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, You agree that Ember Fund shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
We reserve all rights permitted to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, content provisions, User representations and warranties, payment provisions, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, dispute, arbitration, PAGA, class action waivers, prohibitions, representations and warranties, and limitations of liability.

Supplement to Terms; No Limitation. This Addendum supplements the Terms and is intended to be read as a part thereof. The Addendum does not (and is not intended to) amend, invalidate, waive, or void any provision of the Terms, and shall be interpreted consistent with the Terms, to the maximum extent possible. To the extent that any provision of this Addendum is found to contradict the Terms or is found to be otherwise in irreconcilable conflict with the Terms, the Terms shall control and any such conflicting part of this Addendum shall be stricken.
IMPORTANT: The Terms contain dispute resolution, limitation of liability, and other Arbitration, Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”), and class action/collective rights of action waiver provisions that affect Your rights. These provisions apply to Your activities related to the Competitions. PLEASE REVIEW THE TERMS CAREFULLY. YOU MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY COMPETITIONS OR OTHERWISE USE OR ACCESS THE PLATFORM UNLESS YOU AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS.
Description and Nature of the Competitions. The “Play” tab of our mobile application takes you to our Competitions. The Competitions are skill-based cryptocurrency fantasy trading tournaments, separate from the actual real-money portfolio and investment mechanism. The Competitions function as an educational and entertainment tool for prospective cryptocurrency investors, as well as an entertaining opportunity to speculate with a fantasy portfolio and win a prize for skills related to the evaluation of the cryptocurrency market. In general, players use their market knowledge and research skills to pick real-world cryptocurrencies for their fantasy portfolios. Players pay an administrative entry fee from their Wallet and are given a choice of 150 different cryptocurrencies or coins to select for their portfolios. Players have a set “pre-game” period to create and balance their fantasy portfolio before the tournament starts and the fantasy portfolio is locked for the game period.
To enter a Competition, you must pay a preset entry fee in BTC that is transferred from your BTC Wallet (“Entry Fee”). The Entry Fee is deemed prepaid and is for the privilege and entertainment value of entering the Competitions. The Entry Fee shall not be refundable under any circumstances.
Certain Competitions have their own special rules and features that are disclosed on the particular Competition’s entry page or otherwise in our How to: Tournaments section.
In general, and subject to the Competition’s particular set of rules, each player’s portfolio competes against other players’ portfolios based on real-world cryptocurrency prices and market data over a pre-set period. The player whose portfolio performs the best (in terms of percentage growth) is deemed the winner and is awarded a predetermined and disclosed prize credited to the player’s BTC Wallet. The winners are determined based on best relative performance, as compared to the other portfolios in the Competition.
Each Competition has a “pot” or prize pool that is divided among the best performing players, with the top finisher receiving the largest share, the second place receiving the second largest, and so on. Each Competition is capped at a pre-set number of participants.
We reserve the right to delay or withhold the distribution of any prize pool pending KYC or similar authentication or investigation that may be required by applicable law, including for the purpose of compliance with tax reporting and payment obligations.
We also reserve the sole right and discretion to delay or withhold the distribution of any prize pool pending our investigation into the integrity of any Competition. We reserve the right to void the results of any Competition and refund the entry fees to the participants for any reason or no reason at all.
As a participant in or winner of any Competitions, you agree to respond to our requests for information or documentation, and to provide us with such information or documentation necessary to ensure your compliance with any Applicable Laws or this Addendum. We will reach out and request such information from you in writing, on an as needed basis. Your failure to respond or to provide us with the requested information is a breach of this Addendum.
Taxes. If you are a United States resident, we may send you an IRS Form W-9 to request your social security number so that we may send you a 1099-MISC or other appropriate form if your Competition winnings total six hundred dollars ($600) or more in any given calendar year. Depending on the state in which you reside, we may also send you additional federal or state tax forms. If you fail to complete and return the IRS Form W-9 when required, we may suspend or terminate your Account. Without limiting the foregoing, we may withhold from your existing Wallet balance and/or delay deposit of any winnings amount. We may withhold any amount required to be withheld by applicable laws, including amounts due in connection with your failure to complete relevant tax documentation. You are solely responsible for paying all federal, state and other taxes related to your winnings in accordance with all laws that may be applicable to you.
No Investment Advice or Intent; For Personal Entertainment Only. We are not financial or investment advisors, do not offer financial or investment advice, and nothing in our Competitions is intended to be construed or taken as financial or investment advice. It is a violation of this Addendum (as well as potentially a violation of the laws of the jurisdiction in which you are located) to use the Competitions for any purpose other than personal entertainment or to use the Competitions for any commercial purpose. You are strictly prohibited from misrepresenting that the Competitions generate any financial advice, or “recommend” any particular portfolio, or otherwise are used or useful for anything other than personal entertainment.
Rules. In addition to the conduct prohibited under the Terms, the following are expressly prohibited and may result in your removal from the Competition, forfeiture of any entry fee, closure or suspension of your account, referral to the appropriate law enforcement agencies, or other action or remedy that may be available to us to the maximum extent permitted by law.
