Further, in the event you have a dispute with one or more Nomad Users, you hereby release the Protected Parties from claims, demands and damages (actual, direct and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, foreseeable and unforeseeable, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
FOR CALIFORNIA, USA RESIDENTS: You further agree that these Terms waive and release any claims that would otherwise be preserved by operation of section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” You understand that you are releasing us from all claims, whether known or unknown to you, and whether or not you suspect that those claims may exist at this time.
6.1 Force Majeure. Except for obligations to pay money hereunder, no delay, failure or omission by either party to carry out or observe any of its obligations hereunder will give rise to any claim against such party or be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement if and for as long as such failure or omission arises from any cause beyond the reasonable control of that party.
6.2 Service Discontinuance/Modification. We may from time to time modify or discontinue access to, temporarily or permanently, the Site or any Service thereon (or any part, feature, or functionality thereof, as well as internal rules of operation, eligibility, pricing, gamification, visibility to or accessibility of the public, and other aspects). We will not be liable for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance, even if certain features or functions, your settings, and/or any Content you have contributed or have come to rely on, are permanently lost.
6.3 Account Termination. We may terminate your or any other Nomad User’s account for cause, including without limitation for: (a) violation of these Terms; (b) abuse of Nomad resources or any attempt to gain unauthorized entry to the Nomad Solution; (c) use of the Site or any Service in a manner inconsistent with the purpose of the Services; (d) such Nomad User’s request for such termination; or (e) requirements of or for failure to comply with applicable law, regulation, court or governing agency order, or ethical requirements. We may in addition terminate the availability of the Nomad Solution for our own business reasons, including if we elect to cease being in the business of providing it. Our termination of any Nomad User’s access to the Nomad Solution may be without notice and, on such termination, we may immediately deactivate or delete any Nomad User’s account and Content, and/or bar any further access to the Site and Services. We will not be liable for any termination of Nomad User’s access to the Site or Services. After account termination, you will not attempt to register a new account without our permission.
6.4 US Government Restricted Rights. Services are provided with “RESTRICTED RIGHTS.” Use, duplication, or disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in applicable laws and regulations. Use of the Services and related materials by the U.S. Government constitutes acknowledgment of our proprietary rights.
6.5 Trademarks. You are granted no right, title or license to any third party trademarks by these Terms, or to any of our trademarks or servicemarks. We reserve all right, title and interest in and to our trademarks, servicemarks, trade names, trade dress, domain names, and similar identifiers, including without limitation NomadTM.
6.6 US DMCA. If you believe that your work has been copied and is accessible via the Nomad Solution in a way that constitutes copyright infringement in the United States, you may notify us by providing the following in writing:
The above writing must be electronically or physically signed by you as the owner of the content claimed to be infringed or the owner’s authorized agent. If we receive such a claim, we may refuse or delete the applicable content, or terminate the applicable user’s account in accordance with these Terms. Our designated agent to receive notification of claimed infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 is available at:

We may remove content alleged or in our judgment to be infringing or otherwise illegal, without prior notice and at our sole discretion. In appropriate circumstances, we may also terminate a user’s account if the user is determined to be a repeat infringer.
If you believe that a notice of infringement has been improperly submitted against you, you may submit a counter-notice, electronically or physically signed by you, and containing the following:
6.8 Dispute Resolution.
(b) Except for actions or claims described in section 6.8(e)(ii), we will first try to resolve dispute(s) between us informally and neither of us may start a formal arbitration proceeding for at least 30 days after one of us notifies the other of a dispute in writing. Notice of the dispute will include a brief written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested.
(c) The arbitration will be conducted without in-person appearances in a live hearing if (i) the credibility of testifying witnesses is unnecessary to the resolution of the dispute; (ii) the parties agree to waive in-person appearances; (iii) the AAA rules permit waiver of or otherwise don’t require in-person appearances; (iv) the claim does not exceed $10,000; or (v) the arbitrator determines that in- person appearances are unnecessary or unhelpful, or would be burdensome to any of the parties to the arbitration or to their staff. If in-person appearances are required, such hearing(s) will be held via videoconference unless the arbitrator determines, in the arbitrator’s reasonable discretion, that a videoconference hearing is not suitable. For clarity, nothing in these terms abrogates either party’s right to a transcription of all arbitration proceedings at such party’s own expense.
(d) The parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury and agree to only bring claims in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. All disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions. The validity and effectiveness of this subsection (d) is not arbitrable.
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this section will preclude the right and ability of either party to bypass arbitration and file and maintain at any time: (i) an individual action in small claims court; and (ii) an action for recovery of injunctive or provisional relief in any court of competent jurisdiction under the laws applicable thereto. Such actions, either party’s right to pursue such actions, and the validity and effectiveness of this subsection (e) are not arbitrable. For clarity, nothing in these Terms will be construed as either party’s consent to the exercise of the jurisdiction of any court except as set forth in section 6.7.
(f) Subject to subsections (d) and (e), all claims and disputes between the parties relating to the Subject Matter must be resolved using arbitration in accordance with this section 6.8. Should either party file an action contrary to this section, the other party may recover lawyers’ fees and costs associated with enforcing this section, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the claim in a timely fashion.
(g) Except to the extent required by law or in order to enforce arbitral awards in court, the parties shall keep confidential, make no public announcements regarding, and shall not disclose the existence of (i) any dispute, (ii) the existence or details of the arbitration proceeding, and (iii) all related documents, materials, evidence, judgments and awards therein.
(h) The arbitrator will apply the law specified in section 6.7, without regard to conflicts of law rules. The parties agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section 6.8.
(i) The parties acknowledge that if one or more provisions of this section 6.8 is found to be unenforceable, invalid, preempted or unlawful for any reason, the parties’ intention is to (1) maintain the enforceability of such invalid or unenforceable provision in any circumstances other than those this in which the provision is held to be unenforceable, (2) modify such provision to the extent the provision can be rendered enforceable, and (3) sever such invalid or unenforceable provision from the remaining section 6.8 so as to preserve as much of the remaining as possible, so that such provision will not impact the ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis. To the extent that any claims must proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims will be litigated in the state or federal courts described in section 6.7, and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
6.9 Assignment. These Terms will not be assigned, delegated, or transferred by you, in whole or in part, whether voluntary, involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, sale of assets, or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any such purported assignment, delegation or transfer without such written consent will be void. We may at any time assign these Terms without prior consent or notice. These Terms will be binding on, and inure to the benefit of, the parties and their respective and permitted successors and assigns.
6.10 Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that breach of these Terms, or any unauthorized use, disclosure or distribution of the Nomad Solution or Content, may cause irreparable harm to us, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain, and that we will be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief (in addition to any other available remedies), in any court of competent jurisdiction under the applicable laws thereto
6.11 London, United Kingdom – Based Site. The Nomad Solution is controlled by Nomad from its offices in London. We make no representation that the Nomad Solution is appropriate for use in other jurisdictions. Your use of or access to the Site will not be construed as our purposefully availing ourselves of the benefits or privileges of doing business in any other country, state or jurisdiction other than London, United Kingdom.
6.12 Limitation. You agree that regardless of any statute of limitations to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the Subject Matter must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period established by applicable law.
6.13 General. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and govern each Nomad User’s use of the Nomad Solution, superseding any prior agreements, understandings, communications or proposals. Each Nomad User may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when that Nomad User uses affiliate services, third party content or third party software. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and any website page controlled by us (including any page describing or summarizing your or our rights, obligations, and/or these Terms), these Terms will control. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will be deemed a further waiver or continuing waiver or such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Nothing herein will be deemed to create an agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship of any kind between us and any user or other person or entity, nor do these terms extend rights to any third party. The parties hereto confirm that they have requested that these Terms and all attachments and related documents, if any, be drafted in English
