If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration agreement shall be null and void, but the rest of this Agreement, including the provisions governing where actions against mitú must be pursued, will remain in effect.
20.4. You and mitú agree to maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and shall not disclose the fact of the arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the arbitration, the arbitrator’s decision and the existence or amount of any award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or court order.
20.5. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.
21. Operation of Services; Availability of Products and Services. Mitú provides the Services in the United States of America. Mitú does not represent that the Services or any content on the Services are appropriate (or, in some cases, available) for use in other locations. If you access or use the Website or the Services from a location outside of the United States, you agree that you do so of your own initiative, and you are responsible for complying with local laws as applicable to your access and/or use of the Website or the Services from such location. The Services may not be available worldwide or accessible nationwide, and mitú makes no representation that you will be able to obtain any portion of the Services in any particular location, either within or outside of the United States.
22. Indemnity; Waiver of Injunctive Relief. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless mitú, its subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors and assignees and their respective officers, directors, managers, agents, partners and employees, from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages and demands, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of (i) your access to and/or use of the Services, including, without limitation, any, services and/or products offered thereby or in connection therewith; and/or (ii) a violation or breach by you, or any user of your account, of any terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, a breach of any of the representations, warranties or agreements set forth in this Agreement. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the expiration/termination of this Agreement and/or your use of the Services. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS (WITHOUT LIMITATION) THAT, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR CLAIM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN, ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF THE WEBSITE, THE SERVICES, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY MITÚ. However, you acknowledge that any breach or anticipatory breach by you of this Agreement may result in harm to mitú not capable of a remedy of money damages alone and accordingly in addition to any action at law for damages, mitú will be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief.
23. Survival. Following the termination of your account or your use of the Services, the provisions of this Agreement and all rights, liabilities and obligations acquired hereunder by you and/or mitú shall survive in perpetuity and remain in full force and effect.
25. Reporting of Violations. If you become aware of any misuse of the Services or any violation of this Agreement, please report such misuse and/or violation by sending an email to at Info@mitunetwork.com or by clicking on the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the mitú Website pages.
