The term “you” refers to a Visitor or Consumer.
Additional Terms. The disclaimers, terms and conditions on these pages are of general application and may be supplemented by additional policies, procedures, disclaimers, guidelines, rules, terms or conditions of specific application disclosed by us, including through a registration process or other means.

The information specified above must be sent to FinLocker’s Designated Agent, whose contact information is as follows: FinLocker, LLC, Attention: DMCA Designated Agent 168 N. Meramec Ave, Suite 250, St. Louis, Missouri 63105. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act may impose liability for damages on any person who knowingly sends meritless notices of infringement. Please do not make false claims. Any information or correspondence that you provide to us may be shared with third parties, including the person who provided us with the allegedly infringing material. Copyright owners and agents acknowledge that failure to comply with all of the requirements of the foregoing may result in an invalidity of the DMCA notice.
Counter-Notice. If you believe that the content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent: (a) your physical or electronic signature; (b) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (c) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (d) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in St. Louis County, Missouri, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the person providing such content, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Removal of Content. Please note however, such content may not be completely removed or may otherwise still be available to others in the following circumstances: (a) your content has been incorporated into derivative works or compilations created by us or other parties; (b) such content has been retained in our data backup systems or for archival purposes; or (c) to the extent such content has been sold to or downloaded by other persons and such persons retain your content.
Waiver/Severability. No waiver of any term, provision or condition of this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or shall constitute, a waiver of any other term, provision or condition hereof, whether or not similar, nor shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver of any such term, provision or condition hereof. No waiver shall be binding unless executed in writing by the party making the waiver. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, then such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the other provisions will remain fully effective and enforceable.
Notice. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices shall be in writing and shall be deemed to be delivered when sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid, or when sent by facsimile or email to either party’s last known post office, facsimile or email address, respectively. You hereby consent to notice by email. We may send you via such email address our newsletters, product updates, service-related information and other offers and information from us or our business partners, and you hereby consent to such emails. We may also contact you by email to respond to any customer service or other inquiries you submit.
Law/Agreement to Arbitrate. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri, without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of law. All disputes arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement (including formation, performance, breach, enforceability, and validity of this Agreement) or our operation of the Site shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration to be held in the English language in St. Louis, Missouri pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part, of this Agreement is void or voidable.
WAIVER OF RIGHTS. YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION UNDER THIS SECTION, INCLUDING GIVING UP ANY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO HAVE THE DISPUTE DETERMINED BY A COURT OF LAW OR BY A JURY AND ANY RIGHT THAT YOU MAY HAVE UNDER ARTICLE 13 OF THE STATE BAR ACT TO HAVE A TRIAL DE NOVO BY A COURT AFTER NONBINDING ARBITRATION OF A DISPUTE CONCERNING FEES OR COSTS; THAT DISCOVERY OF INFORMATION IN ARBITRATION MAY BE LIMITED; AND THAT THE ARBITRATION DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING, EXCEPT TO THE LIMITED EXTENT THAT JUDICIAL REVIEW MIGHT BE AVAILABLE. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS OR THROUGH PARTICIPATION IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLAIMS OR DISPUTES OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER.
Without prejudice to the agreement to resolve disputes in binding arbitration set forth in the previous paragraph, either party to this Agreement may obtain preliminary injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction, for the purpose of enforcing any of the terms of this Agreement pending a final determination in arbitration or permanent relief for the purpose of enforcing arbitral awards.
Equitable Relief / Fees. The parties agree that breach of the provisions of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the unauthorized use of the Services, would cause irreparable harm and significant injury to us which would be both difficult to ascertain and which would not be compensable by damages alone. As such, the parties agree that we have the right to enforce the provisions of this Agreement by injunction (without necessity of posting bond), specific performance, or other equitable relief without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have for your breach of this Agreement. If any action in law or in equity is necessary to enforce the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to reasonable fees of attorneys, accountants, and other professionals, and costs and expenses in addition to any other relief to which such prevailing party may be entitled.
Force Majeure. If the performance of any part of this Agreement by either party (other than the payment of money) is prevented, hindered, delayed or otherwise made impracticable by reason of any flood, riot, fire, judicial or governmental action, labor disputes, act of God or any other causes beyond the control of either party, that party shall be excused from such to the extent that it is prevented, hindered or delayed by such causes.
Survival. The terms and provisions of Sections 4, 7 – 9, 12 – 14, and 17 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Assignment. You shall not assign or transfer this Agreement or any rights or obligations under this Agreement. Any unauthorized assignment or transfer shall be void and constitutes ground for immediate termination of this Agreement by us. This Agreement binds and inures to the benefit of us and our respective permitted successors and permitted assigns.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties with respect to the Services and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous communications, representations, statements and understandings, whether oral or written, between the parties concerning the Services. The captions and headings of this Agreement are included for ease of reference only and will be disregarded in interpreting or construing this Agreement.
