1.3 About this Document
Below is an overview of our Terms of Service for our “Platform”, which means any website, application, or service we offer. You should read the complete Terms of Service because this document is our legally binding agreement. The Terms of Service includes information about your legal rights and covers areas such as limitations of liability, resolution of disputes by mandatory arbitration rather than a judge or jury in a court of law, and a class action waiver.

By using our Platform, you are agreeing to our Terms of Service. The Terms of Service are a legally binding agreement between you and Linkup Point.
If you break the rules, we may suspend or terminate your account.
1.5 Sports, Recreation, and Risk
Using our Platform involves meeting people and doing things in the real world, which can sometimes lead to unexpected situations. We can’t control what happens in the real world, and we are not responsible for it. You should use common sense and good judgment when interacting with others.
Many of the activities listed on our Platform involve risk, which can sometimes lead to injury, or even death. We are not responsible for your participation in any of these activities nor any injuries, damage, or other harms that you or others may sustain as a result of such participation. You should use common sense and good judgement when deciding to participate in these activities, what gear or equipment to use for these activities, and who to participate with to do these activities.
1.6 Your Content and the Content of Others
You are responsible for your “Content”, which means any information, material, or other content posted to our Platform. Your Content must comply with our Terms of Service.
We do not own the Content that you post. However, we do require that you provide us a license to use this Content in order for us to operate, improve, promote, and protect Linkup Point and our Platform for the benefit of you and others.
We are not responsible for Content that members post or the communications that members send using our Platform. We generally don’t review Content before it’s posted. If you see Content that violates our Terms of Service, you may report inappropriate Content to us.
1.7 Our Platform
We try hard to make sure that our Platform is always available and working, but we cannot guarantee it will be. Occasionally things may not go exactly as planned. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
We are continually improving our Platform. This means that we may modify or discontinue portions of our Platform.
By using our Platform, you agree to the limitations of liability and release in our Terms of Service.

Claims can only be brought individually, and not as part of a class action.
You may be based in a country where the laws that apply provide for different or additional rights and obligations. These Terms of Service will point out areas of difference.

For example, the eligibility requirements for an event may be set by the organizer of that event.
3.2 Modification, Suspension, and Termination of Your Account.
We may modify, suspend, or terminate your account or access to the Platform if, in our sole discretion, we determine that you have violated this Agreement, including any of the policies or guidelines that are part of this Agreement, that it is in the best interest of other members on the Platform, or to protect our brand or Platform. When this happens, we will notify you of the reasons for the modification, suspension, or termination. We also may remove accounts of members who are inactive for an extended period of time.
Other users of the Platform, including event, group, and service organizers, have the ability to moderate or manage your access to their accounts, groups, events, and services. We do not have any responsibility to facilitate any of your interactions with any other user.

Also, you agree to maintain the security and confidentiality of your password (or else we may need to disable your account). We strongly encourage you to choose a strong and unique password that is not shared with any other account or online service and practice other healthy password security habits to help avoid unauthorized access to your account. You alone are responsible for anything that happens from your failure to maintain that security and confidentiality, such as by sharing your account credentials with others.

Without limitation to Section 9, Linkup Point is not a party to any offline arrangements made through our Platform. Linkup Point does not conduct or require background checks on members and does not attempt to verify the truth or accuracy of statements made by members.

In addition, you agree that you will comply with the export control laws of your local jurisdiction. You also represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. government embargo or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and that you are not listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

6.7 Third Party Sites and Services.
The Platform may contain links to third party sites or services, and may be integrated with various third party services, applications and sites that could make available to you their content and products. We don’t control these third parties and aren’t responsible for those sites or services or their content or products. These third parties may have their own terms and policies, and your use of them will be governed by those terms and policies. You do not have a license to use the intellectual property of third parties merely by way of your access to our Platform.
Summary: To the full extent permitted by applicable law, you agree not to hold us responsible for anything that happens related to transactions with third parties, member interactions, or in connection with a Linkup Point event or service. You also agree not to hold event or service organizers or other Linkup Point members responsible for their negligence in connection with their Content or conduct during an event or service.
To the full extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release us and our officers, directors, shareholders, agents, employees, consultants, corporate parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, and other third-party partners ( “Linkup Point Parties”) from claims, demands, and damages (direct and consequential) (“Claims”), arising out of or in any way connected with any transaction with a third party, your interactions with other members, or in connection with a Linkup Point event or service. You also agree, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, to release event and service organizers and other members from Claims based on their negligence arising out of or in any way connected with their Content, or conduct during a Linkup Point event or service. The law in some countries and states do not allow the release, so these limits may not apply to you. You waive and relinquish all rights and benefits that you have or may have under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code or any similar provision of statutory or non-statutory law of any other jurisdiction to the fullest extent permitted by law.
You acknowledge that some Linkup Point events and services carry inherent dangers, such as the risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death. By participating in these events or services, you understand and agree that you have freely chosen to assume these risks.
Summary: To the full extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to reimburse us if we get sued in connection with your use of our Platform.

9. Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
Summary: Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and we make no warranties of any kind with respect to our Platform. Our liability in connection with the Platform is limited to the fees you paid to us in the 12 months preceding the claim or $100, whichever is greater.
9.1 Warranty Disclaimer.
Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and on an “as available” basis. To the full extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all warranties and conditions of any kind, including but not limited to statutory warranties, and the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We also disclaim any warranties regarding (a) the reliability, timeliness, accuracy, and performance of our Platform, (b) any information, advice, services, or goods obtained through or advertised on our Platform or by us, as well as for any information or advice received through any links to other websites or resources provided through our Platform, (c) the results that may be obtained from the Platform, and (d) the correction of any errors in the Platform, (e) any material or data obtained through the use of our Platform, and (f) dealings with or as the result of the presence of marketing partners or other third parties on or located through our Platform. You may have additional rights under the law of the country in which you are based. You agree that the duration of such additional rights will be limited to the full extent permitted by such law.
9.2 Limitation of Liability.
To the full extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that in no event shall any Linkup Point Parties be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if any Linkup Point Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages) arising out of or in connection with (a) our Platform or this Agreement or the inability to use our Platform (however arising, including our negligence), (b) statements or conduct of or transactions with any member or third party on the Platform, (c) your use of our Platform or transportation to or from Linkup Point events or services, attendance at Linkup Point events or services, participation in or exclusion from Linkup Point events or services, and the actions of you or others at Linkup Point events or services, or (d) any other matter relating to the Platform. Our liability to you or any third parties in any circumstance is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount of fees, if any, you paid to us in the 12 months prior to the action that may give rise to liability. The limitations set forth above in this Section 9 will not limit or exclude liability for our gross negligence, fraud, or intentional, malicious, or reckless misconduct. Some laws do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability, so these limits may not apply to you. If you are a member based in the EU, you have legal remedies if we cause you loss by our breach or non-performance of our legal obligations, or by our negligence, and these terms do not affect those statutory remedies.
10. Dispute Resolution
Summary: If you have a dispute with Linkup Point, you agree to try to work it out directly with us first. If we can’t work it out, with limited exceptions, you must submit any dispute with us to a neutral arbitrator instead of taking the claim to a court of law. Claims can only be brought individually, and not as part of a class action. Members based in the European Union may have additional or different rights, as provided by applicable law. Linkup Point has no obligation to get involved with any disputes you have with other members, although we may try to facilitate a resolution.
10.1 Informal Resolution.
Before making any claim, you and Linkup Point agree to try to resolve any disputes through good faith discussions. We use the term “claim” in this Section 10 to mean any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of our Platform or this Agreement, including your participation in Linkup Point events or services. You or Linkup Point may initiate this process by sending written notice according to Section 12.2 describing the dispute and your proposed resolution. In the event that we cannot resolve the issue within 30 business days following receipt of the initial notice, you or Linkup Point may bring a claim in accordance with this Section 10. Members based in the European Union may have additional or different rights, as provided by applicable law.
10.2 Arbitration Agreement.
The arbitration procedures described in this Section 10.2 applies to all members, except for members who are based in the European Union. Section 10.6 sets out the dispute resolution procedures that apply to members who are based in the European Union.
a. Mandatory Arbitration.
Except as set forth in Section 11.3, you agree to submit any claim to JAMS Denver for final and binding arbitration. In arbitration, certain rights that you or we would have in court may not be available, such as discovery or appeal. You and Linkup Point are each expressly waiving any right to trial by judge or jury in a court of law. This agreement to arbitrate shall apply regardless of whether the claim arises during or after any termination of this Agreement or your relationship with Linkup Point.
b. Arbitration Time for Filing.
Any claim subject to arbitration must be filed within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
c. Arbitration Procedures.
Either party may commence arbitration by filing a written demand for arbitration with JAMS Denver, with a copy to the other party according to the notice procedures in Section 12.2. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures and any other applicable rules that JAMS requires (“JAMS Rules”) that are in effect as of the demand for arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law govern the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. Any arbitration hearings will take place in El Paso County, Colorado or elsewhere as required by JAMS Rules. Your responsibility to pay any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the JAMS Rules. The parties will cooperate with JAMS and each other in scheduling the arbitration proceedings, and in selecting one arbitrator from the appropriate JAMS list with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and contract disputes. The arbitrator shall follow this Agreement and, to the extent permitted by JAMS Rules, can award costs, fees, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, to the prevailing party, except that the arbitrator shall not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You or Linkup Point may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in El Paso County, Colorado or any U.S. county where you live or work. You or Linkup Point may seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in El Paso County, Colorado as necessary to protect the intellectual property rights of you or Linkup Point pending the completion of arbitration. Linkup Point may take action in court or arbitration to collect any fees or recover damages for, or to seek injunctive relief relating to, Platform operations, or unauthorized use of our Platform or intellectual property. Nothing in this Section 10 shall diminish Linkup Point’s right to modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to our Platform under Section 3.
10.4 Arbitration Opt Out.
You may decline to resolve disputes through arbitration by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date you first agree to this Agreement. Your email must include your full name, residential address, the email address registered to your Linkup Point account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out according to this process, then Section 10.2 of this Agreement does not apply to you. This opt-out does not affect any other sections of this Agreement.
10.5 Class Action Waiver.
You agree to resolve disputes with Linkup Point on an individual basis. You agree not to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. You are expressly waiving any right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations.
10.6 Dispute Resolution Terms Applicable to Members Based in the EU.
If you are a member based in the European Union, the mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are resident will apply. Nothing in this Agreement will affect your rights as a consumer to rely on the mandatory provisions of the local law that applies. If you are based in the European Union, the local laws in your European Union Member State may allow you to take legal action against Linkup Point in your Member State and to invoke certain local laws against Linkup Point. The European Commission provides for an online dispute resolution platform.
11. Intellectual Property
11.1 Intellectual Property of Linkup Point.
Linkup Point trademarks, logos, service marks, and service names are the intellectual property of Linkup Point. Our Platform, including our material on the Platform, are also our or our licensors’ intellectual property. You agree not to use our intellectual property without our prior written consent.
11.2 Intellectual Property of Others.
Linkup Point respects the intellectual property of others, and we expect our members to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, remove or disable access to material that we believe may infringe on the intellectual property rights of others. We may also restrict or terminate access to our Platform to those who we believe to be repeat infringers. If you believe your intellectual property rights have been violated, please contact us at email@example.com.
12. General Terms
Summary: This section contains terms we have added for miscellaneous purposes. Please continue to read this section carefully.
Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement or as expressly required by law, any notice to us shall be given by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any notice to you shall be given to the most current email address in your account.
12.2 Entire Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Linkup Point, superseding any prior agreements between you and Linkup Point on such subject matter.
12.3 No Agency.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship between you and Linkup Point is intended or created by this Agreement. A member of the Linkup Point Platform is not Linkup Point’s representative or agent, and may not enter into an agreement on Linkup Point’s behalf.
12.4 Governing Law.
This Agreement and the relationship between you and Linkup Point shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, except as provided in Section 10.
12.5 Judicial Forum.
If our agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, or if you opt out of arbitration pursuant to Section 10.4, you and Linkup Point agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in El Paso County, Colorado, and you and Linkup Point agree to venue and personal jurisdiction in those courts.
If you are a member based in the European Union, you may bring judicial proceedings against us arising from or in connection with this Agreement in your country of residence. In addition, for members based in the European Union, the European Commission provides for an online dispute resolution platform.
12.6 Time for Filing.
Any claim not subject to arbitration must be commenced within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. This clause does not apply to you if you are based in the European Union.
This Agreement is not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with Linkup Point’s prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us to our corporate parent or any affiliate or subsidiary, or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of Linkup Point’s assets, or similar transaction.
12.8 No Waiver.
A party’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision and does not waive any right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, you and Linkup Point nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
If we terminate your account or access to our Platform, this Agreement terminates with respect to the member account that has been terminated, provided that the provisions listed in Section 12.11 will survive such termination.
Sections 4 (Fees, Payments, and Offers), 5 (Content License from You), 5 (Privacy), 7 (Release), 8 (Indemnification), 9 (Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability), 10 (Dispute Resolution), and 12 (General Terms) of this Agreement, and any other provisions necessary to give effect to these provisions, shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Please report any violations of this Agreement by a member or third party by sending an email to email@example.com.
