(C) Your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation, any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; (D) Your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; or (E) any misrepresentation made by You.

Arbitration

These Terms and Conditions And Policies are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law and will specifically not be governed by the united nations conventions on contracts for the international sale of goods, if otherwise applicable. For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these Terms of Use, the Excluded Disputes or if You opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, You agree to resolve any dispute You have with AfroAvenue exclusively in a court located in the City of London in the United Kingdom, and to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the City of London in the United Kingdom for the purpose of litigating all such disputes. You agree that all disputes between You and AfroAvenue (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to Your relationship with AfroAvenue, including without limitation disputes related to these Terms of Use, Your use of the Service, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under UK law for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and You and AfroAvenue hereby expressly waive trial by jury. You may alternatively bring Your claim in Your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules. You may bring claims only on Your own behalf. Neither You nor AfroAvenue will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if AfroAvenue is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by UK law. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Use. You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If You do so, neither You nor AfroAvenue can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, You must notify AfroAvenue in writing within 30 days of the date that You first became subject to this arbitration provision. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of Your relationship with AfroAvenue.

For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than £8,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final. You agree that any claim You may have arising out of or related to Your relationship with AfroAvenue must be filed within six months after such claim arose; otherwise, Your claim is permanently barred.

Governing Law & Location

AfroAvenue's failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or policy or any other term or condition or policy. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Agreement, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by any AfroAvenue Affiliate shall be deemed legally binding on any AfroAvenue Affiliate, unless documented in a physical writing hand signed by a duly appointed officer of AfroAvenue. AfroAvenue reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of Your transactions with AfroAvenue. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way. Notwithstanding the above, You agree that AfroAvenue shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

If You are a government entity using the Services in Your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to You. For such government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United Kingdom (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the United Kingdom (excluding choice of law). The information provided within the Service is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject AfroAvenue to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.

Any purported assignment and delegation shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially without notice to You.

AfroAvenue supports middleware providers that offer archiving solutions to firms subject to financial services regulation, which, with your permission, facilitate the archiving of your communications and other AfroAvenue activity by a third party for compliance purposes.

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are bidders, buyers or sellers on our sites or other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you provide to them.

Competitions, Polls and Surveys

All entrants must register for the relevant competition by giving their correct name and email address. All competitions are subject to their own terms and conditions. Polls and Surveys may be conducted by AfroAvenue, AfroAvenue Users or third parties. As a User, you may be invited to participate in polls and surveys from the AfroAvenue website. Your selection may be random, or it may be based on your non-personally identifiable information, such as job title, geography, company size and/or industry. Whether or not you decide to participate in a poll or survey is completely up to you. Some third parties may target advertisements to you on the results page based on your answers in the poll. AfroAvenue or third parties may follow up with you via AfroAvenue Mail regarding your participation. Upon registration for competitions or other online services you may, in some cases, be automatically opted-in to receive e-mail marketing, newsletters or partner promotions containing material relevant to the website on which you have registered your details. You will be specifically notified if this is the case and you may unsubscribe to receiving such marketing material at anytime by clicking on the e-mail unsubscribe link. We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. We may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

Privacy Violation Reporting

If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, start by contacting the user and asking them to remove the content. If you can’t reach an agreement with the uploader of the content, you can request removal of content based on our Privacy Policy Conditions. For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable. We consider the following factors, your image or voice, Full name, Financial information, Contact information, Other personally identifiable information to determine whether a User is uniquely identifiable. We also consider public interest, newsworthiness, and consent as factors in our final decision. AfroAvenue reserves the right to make the final determination of whether a violation of its privacy guidelines has occurred. To be considered uniquely identifiable, there must be enough information in the media content that allows others to recognize you. If a privacy complaint is filed, AfroAvenue provides the uploader an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within their video. We issue notification of the potential violation and provide the uploader 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If the uploader removes the content during these 48 hours, the complaint filed will be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the AfroAvenue Team will then review the complaint.

We do not accept claims on behalf of third parties except in the following situations:

If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the complaint will be reviewed by the AfroAvenue Team. If we remove your content for a privacy violation, please do not upload another version featuring the same people. These individuals will likely file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. We suspend accounts that violate people's privacy. We cannot accept or review agreements granting consent before the video was uploaded, so we may still have to remove your video based upon the complaint. Content that makes threats of serious physical harm against a specific individual or defined group of individuals will be removed. People who threaten others may receive a strike on their account and their account may be terminated. If you feel you've had a serious violent threat made against you, please contact local Law Enforcement.
