16. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
If you are having a problem with the Service, many issues can be resolved on one of our forums. You may find resolution by clicking on the “Support” link on that game’s page or on our website. Before bringing a formal legal case, first contact our Customer Support team at https://goodmood4u.com support. Most disputes can be resolved that way.
Dispute Resolution - Agreement to Arbitrate
An arbitration proceeding is held before a neutral arbitrator, so you and GoodMood PBC are giving up our rights to a trial before a judge and jury. Arbitrations have different rules than lawsuits in court. They are less formal than lawsuits in courts, and provide limited opportunity to force the other side to share information relevant to the dispute—a process called discovery. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. But, if any of us does not like the arbitrator’s decision, the courts only have a limited ability to change the outcome of arbitration or make the arbitrator reconsider his or her decision.
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if we have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate is enforceable and/or applies to our dispute, we hereby agree that the arbitrator will decide that too.
Furthermore, if you and/or GoodMood PBC brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or any of us refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other one can ask the court to force us to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (e.g., compel arbitration). In addition, You and/or GoodMood PBC may also request a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
The Arbitration Process
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration between you and GoodMood PBC, and the AAA’s then-current rules and procedures (including their Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes) will be used for such arbitration. If these Terms of Service conflicts with the than AAA’s rules and procedures, then these Terms of Service shall govern and will be utilized during the arbitration. You can view the AAA’s rules and procedures, via their website at www.adr.org, or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879.
You can start an arbitration proceeding, by using the applicable forms found on the AAA’s website (www.adr.org), or by calling them at 1-800-778-7879.
No Class Actions
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, we all agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis.
- Neither you nor GoodMood PBC can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action or representative action.
- The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s claim into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative arbitration proceeding (unless we both agree to change this).
- The arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact the person who brought the claim, not other GoodMood PBC players, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other players.
Changes to Section 16 on Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver
We will give you at least 60-days’ prior notice by email or through the Service, if We change Section 16 on our Agreement to Arbitrate and/or our Class Action Waiver terms.
17. APPLICABLE LAW
The Federal Arbitration Act (including its procedural provisions) is the law that will be applied to determine whether Section 16 (Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver) can be enforced and how it should be interpreted.
Apart from that, if you are United States resident, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by Delaware law, except for its conflicts of laws principles.
20. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
These Terms of Service, and any other policies or rules We reference in these Terms of Service, make up the entire agreement between you and Us relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service, whether those prior understandings were electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and Us.
21. LANGUAGE OF THE TERMS

You agree that We may notify you by posting something on www.goodmood4u.com, or in the GoodMood PBC game(s) you play, and sending you an e-mail or using other ways of communicating with you based on the contact information you provide to Us.
Any attempted notice that does not follow these rules has no legal effect.
24. EQUITABLE REMEDIES
You hereby agree to limit your claims to claims for money damages, as limited by Section 14 (Limitations; Waivers of Liability). Furthermore, you agree not to seek injunctive or equitable relief or otherwise seek to stop Us from operating any aspect of the Service or any GoodMood PBC Game.
25. FORCE MAJEURE
We are not liable for any interruptions, changes, damages and/or any kind of problems caused by any act, thing or person not within our control, including but not limited to interruptions, changes or problems caused by natural disasters, hackers, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, power failures, network infrastructure failures, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
