PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY.
Arbitration NOTICE. Except for certain kinds of disputes described in Section 19, you agree that disputes arising under these Terms will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, and BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AND DCloud ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

- NO DCloud WARRANTIES
DCloud DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITE, PLATFORM OR THE SERVICE COMPLIES WITH ANY LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, IS FREE OF INACCURACIES, ERRORS, BUGS, OR INTERRUPTIONS (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION SERVICE SUSPENSIONS), OR IS RELIABLE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR OTHERWISE VALID. THE WEBSITE, PLATFORM AND THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITH NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND AND DCloud EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, LEGALITY, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, TITLE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

- INDEMNITY AND WAIVER
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold DCloud and its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, service providers, partners, and employees harmless from any claim, demand or allegation made by any third party, and all related losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees), that it is any way related to:

- Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
You can submit a complaint to DCloud by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the dispute is serious and you wish to apply for arbitration, the dispute shall be adjudicated in accordance with the laws of Singapore.
19.1. Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and DCloud in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Section 19.2, you and DCloud agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court.
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND DCloud ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
19.2 Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 19.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims tribunal; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
19.3 If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section 19 within 30 days after the date that you agree to these Terms by sending a mail to service@DCloud that specifies: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the Service, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once DCloud receives your Opt-Out Notice, this Section 19 will be void and any action arising out of these Terms will be resolved as set forth in Section 19.3. The remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.
19.4 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and DCloud will be settled under the Arbitration Act and administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) under Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (collectively, “SIAC Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The SIAC Rules and filing forms are available online at https://siac.org.sg/, by calling the SIAC at +65 6713 9777, or by contacting DCloud. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
19.5 Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified mail (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). DCloud’s mail address for Notice is: email@example.com. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or DCloud may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or DCloud must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by DCloud in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, DCloud will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $1,000.
19.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND DCloud AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and DCloud agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
19.7 Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If DCloud makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to DCloud’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to DCloud’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with DCloud will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
20.1. General. These Terms govern your use of the Website, Platform and the Service and constitute the entire agreement between you and DCloud regarding the subject matter hereof. These Terms supersede any prior agreements between you and DCloud relating to your use of the Website, Platform and the Service (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of these Terms). The failure of DCloud to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that right or provision, and a waiver of any default is not a waiver of any other default. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be invalid, the provision shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the parties’ original intentions as reflected in the provision, and so that the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. All headings in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The Terms are personal to you and may not be assigned or transferred for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, by operation of law, merger, reorganization, or as a result of an acquisition or change of control involving you) without DCloud’s prior written consent and any action or conduct in violation of the foregoing shall be void and without effect. DCloud expressly reserves and shall have the right to assign the Terms and to delegate any of its obligations hereunder.
