  1. Disputes with TVM

The following rules will govern any legal dispute involving our Services:

  1. Governing Law. The Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the State of Virginia, without regard to its conflict of laws rules, and the laws of the United States of America. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live.
  2. Arbitration. You and TVM agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms of Use shall be finally settled by arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section). Our arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under the Terms of Use will take place on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms of Use, you and TVM are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
  3. Forum. TVM is based in Mclean, VA so any legal action against TVM related to our Services must be filed and take place in Virinia. That means the seat of any arbitration shall be Mclean VA. For any actions not subject to arbitration, you and TVM agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Alexandria, VA or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

If you are a government agent or entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity, and you are legally unable to agree to the clauses in this section, then those clauses do not apply to you. In that case, the Terms of Use and any action related to the Terms of Use will be governed by the laws of the United States (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 State of Virginia.

  1. Changes to the Terms of Use

TVM may update these Terms of Use from time to time. If TVM believe that the changes are material, TVM will inform you by the following: (1) posting the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms of Use.

  1. Terms of Use

The Terms of Use, including all of the policies that make up the Terms of Use, supersede any other agreement between you and TVM regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms of Use is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms of Use will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms of Use is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms of Use. TVM may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms of Use.

  1. Intellectual Property Policy

TVM has adopted this intellectual property policy in accordance with industry best practices, general U.S. intellectual property laws, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA).

  1. Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement

TVM strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When TVM removes or disables access in response to a notice, TVM makes a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about counter notification. TVM may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.

  1. Counter Notification

If TVM receives a DMCA counter notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs TVM of this action. TVM sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.

  1. Repeat Infringement

TVM terminates account privileges of members that are subject to repeat notices of intellectual property infringement in appropriate circumstances and at TVM ’s discretion.

Please use email legal@theveteranmarket.com to provide notice of claimed infringement to TVM who will provide it to the appropriate counsel.
