Last Updated: 2nd November 2020
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT IS SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN SCHEDULE B. PLEASE READ THE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
"Push”, "we,” "us” or "our” provides an experimental open source protocol comprising a set of Ethereum based smart contracts (the "Push Protocol”) that enables any service / DApp or Ethereum based smart contract to create channels, whereby they may display, publish or distribute decentralized and incentivized notifications to subscribers to those channels (each with a unique wallet addresses). Each user/subscriber (unique wallet addresses) will be able to control what notifications they opt in to receive, or are rewarded for indirect opt in by channels. Users may interact with the Push Protocol directly via the smart contracts, or the dApp located at app.push.org or at staging.push.org or any other subdomains associated with push.org, including any mobile application or any similar frontend interface that can interact with blockchain smart contracts (the "App”). Channels and subscribers/users interact directly in a peer to peer manner via the Push Protocol (for example, transaction requests and notifications are sent directly from each channel to the subscriber), and Push is not, under any circumstances, a party or intermediary to that process.
The content of the notifications will be created by you, is presented to the subscriber/user in a variety of ways including images, data, text, messages, video or audio (collectively, the "Content”). All Content created by you is solely your responsibility and you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use and distribution of any of your Content.

3. STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Services or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
1. INITIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
The parties shall use their best efforts to engage directly to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to either party initiating an arbitration or lawsuit.
2. BINDING ARBITRATION
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision begins, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the provisions set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including their formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration.
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without our prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of Singapore, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled in Singapore, in English, in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (the "Rules”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Section, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. The seat of the arbitration shall be Singapore.
Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Despite the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Singapore. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND PUSH ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION
3. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND PUSH AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this Pgraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
