ResponderRel8 shall not be liable to App User for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the i Services.
Due to the open nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure, and thus ResponderRel8 cannot guarantee that communications between any App Users, on the one hand, and ResponderRel8, on the other, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.

ResponderRel8 and iRel8, on the one hand, and any App User, on the other hand, agree first to contact the other to advise of any such Dispute. The party alleging, asserting and/or initiating the Dispute shall contact the other party or parties who is or are alleged to be liable or responsible for such Dispute, and provide a written description of the Dispute, all relevant documents/information and the proposed resolution (the “Claim Notice”). App User, as applicable agrees to contact iRel8 as contemplated above by calling or writing to:
Claims Administrator, ResponderRel8
1801 Wewatta Street, 11th Floor
Denver, CO 80202
The Claims Administrator for ResponderRel8 and iRel8, on the one hand, and App User, on the other hand, shall then seek in good faith to resolve the Dispute. As part of this process, each party to the Dispute shall provide a monetary amount that, if paid to the party alleging, asserting and/or initiating the Dispute, would settle the Dispute (the “Settlement Amount”). If the parties do not agree to a Settlement Amount, or the parties are otherwise unable to settle the Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date of delivery of the Claim Notice, then the parties shall proceed to arbitration, as set forth below.
The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”), 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16. Any award by the arbitrator may be entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction. Any arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, subject only to those exceptions under the FAA. ResponderRel8 and App User, as applicable, agree the FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration.
Unless ResponderRel8 and App User, as applicable, agree otherwise, the foregoing arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator selected by utilizing the process provided in the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect when Claim Notice is duly filed. The arbitrator shall be a licensed attorney and/or retired judge. Except as otherwise provided below, the arbitration shall be conducted in the county where the principal address of the party against whom the Dispute is initially commenced is located – and for any claim against ResponderRel8, that address shall ResponderRel8, 1801 Wewatta Street, 11th Floor, Denver, CO 80202.
The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, consequential or other monetary damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute or as otherwise provided below.
The award of the arbitrator shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion.
For Disputes of $10,000.00 or less that are initiated by App User, as applicable. (“Small Disputes”), the following rules shall apply notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the procedures or rules of the AAA:
The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the AAA’s Expedited Procedures.
The arbitrator shall include a finding as to whether the initiation of such Dispute was frivolous. If it is determined by the arbitrator not to be frivolous, then ResponderRel8 shall pay the fees and costs assessed by the AAA in administering the arbitration.
If the arbitrator finds that ResponderRel8 is liable to App User, as applicable for an amount greater than the Settlement Amount presented by ResponderRel8 prior to the commencement of arbitration (after all offsets and counterclaims are applied), then ResponderRel8 shall be required to pay in addition to any award of the arbitrator an amount equal to the greater of (x) $500.00, or (y) the amount of App User’s, as applicable, reasonable attorneys’ fees.
App User, as applicable, may choose to conduct the arbitration in the state of its principal address.
RESPONDERREL8 AND APP USER, AS APPLICABLE, EACH AGREE NOT TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS. ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
The restrictions on disclosure in this section will not apply to Confidential Information: (i) for which there is documentary evidence that: (A) the other party knew it before it was disclosed; (B) the other party developed it without use of the Confidential Information; (C) it is publicly known; or, (D) it was obtained from a third-party, who disclosed it without breaching its confidentiality obligations; (ii) for which disclosure is required by law (provided that if a disclosure is required by law, the disclosing party will give ResponderRel8 prompt written notice of such requirement, permitting ResponderRel8 to seek a protective order or take such action it deems necessary, and provided further that in such case the disclosing party will only disclose the limited Confidential Information expressly required to be disclosed).
For the avoidance of doubt, at all times, all Confidential Information is the sole property of ResponderRel8, even if its disclosure is authorized under this section, and all other restrictions in these ResponderRel8 Terms and Conditions will continue to apply to such Confidential Information.
Non-Disparagement: App User agrees not to disparage ResponderRel8 or its respective vendors, and promises to refrain from engaging, directly or indirectly, in any action, communication or conduct negligently, recklessly or intentionally undertaken to damage the name or reputation of ResponderRel8 or its respective vendors or App Users.
