Survival
The provisions of these Terms shall survive the cancellation, termination or expiry of these Terms.

Legal Action
You agree not to sue CLNAA, or bring any form of legal action to bear against CLNAA And Its Representatives and to indemnify and hold harmless CLNAA And Its Representatives from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney’s fees, that arise from or relate to any person or company or other entity who is not an employee or officer or director of CLNAA, that uses the Site or misuses the Site, including without limitation content sent or posted by them on the Site or through the Services, their connection to the Site and/or CLNAA services, and their non-compliance with these Terms, or their violation of any third-party rights including your rights.

Non-Disparagement
You agree that you will not, in any communication that can reasonably be expected to become public, with any person or entity, including any third-party media outlet or website, make any derogatory, disparaging or critical negative statements, orally, written or otherwise, against CLNAA or its services, or any of CLNAA’s managers, directors, officers, employees, agents and arbitrators, unless you have irrefutable physical evidence that proves beyond any doubt that the communication at issue is true, and you provide that proof to CLNAA immediately upon request. If after three days of being notified of this breach you have not removed the communication at issue or caused it to be removed, you will be considered in breach of the Terms, and you, as liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, will immediately pay to CLNAA the amount of $25,000. Nothing herein shall prevent you from testifying truthfully in connection with any litigation, arbitration or administrative proceeding when compelled by subpoena, regulation or court order to do so.

Operational and Security Requirements
CLNAA, in its effort to perform its identity verification, signing and other functions, is able to collect and retain user input, including all relevant computer data, including but not limited to access logs, IP addresses, user click data, and other user information. If you create an audio or visual recording using the Site for notarization, identification, or other purpose, then we can retain that recording. CLNAA will NOT create any such audio or visual recording without your consent.

Accounts, Passwords and Security
Certain features or services offered on or through the Site may require you to open an account by inputting an email (as a User ID), password, and/or potentially other information. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the information you hold for your account, including your password, and for any and all activity that occurs under your account as a result of your failing to keep this information secure and confidential. You agree to notify CLNAA immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other breach of security. You may be held liable for losses incurred by CLNAA or any other user of or visitor to the Site due to someone else using your User ID, password or account as a result of your failing to keep your account information secure and confidential. You may not use anyone else’s User ID, password or account at any time for any reason. CLNAA will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations.

General Provisions
CLNAA’s affiliates and the directors, officers and employees of CLNAA and its affiliates and representatives are intended third party beneficiaries for the purpose of these Terms. Except as otherwise specifically stated in such provisions, these Terms are for the benefit of you and CLNAA And Its Representatives and not for any other person or entity.
No party is to be deemed to have waived or forfeited any right under these Terms, whether on the basis of failure, delay or any other legal or equitable doctrine, unless such waiver is made in writing signed by an authorized signatory of the party against whom the waiver is sought to be enforced. Waiver of any provision, or any breach of any provision, of these Terms in one instance shall not constitute a waiver as to any other instance.
These Terms are to be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Florida. If you reside outside of the United States of America (“USA”), at the option of CLNAA, these Terms are alternatively to be governed by and construed under the laws of the state of New York, excluding any body of law governing conflicts of law. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby excluded in its entirety from application to these Terms. You irrevocably waive any objection on the grounds of venue, forum non-conveniens or any similar grounds and irrevocably consent to service of process by mail or in any other manner permitted by applicable law and irrevocably consent and attorn to the jurisdiction of the courts located in the State of Florida or the State of New York (the choice of the two at the sole option of CLNAA), as the case may be, for any such claims arising from or related to these Terms. The parties specifically agree that, in the event that there is a dispute under these Terms and such dispute is to be resolved in a court of law, such dispute shall not be resolved by jury trial. The parties hereby waive all rights to a trial by jury in any matter related to or arising from these Terms.
Any disagreement or dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach thereof, which the parties are unable to resolve after good faith negotiations, shall be settled by final and binding arbitration to be conducted in Miami, Florida, USA, using a reputable arbitrator. The parties will agree on an independent third-party arbitrator. Each party shall bear one half of the costs associated with the arbitration proceedings. No dispute between the parties, or involving any person but you, may be joined or combined together, without the prior written consent of CLNAA. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any Court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, CLNAA has the right to institute legal or equitable proceedings, including proceedings seeking injunctive relief, in a court of law for claims or disputes regarding your violation or threatened violation of these Terms.
No joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and CLNAA as a result of these Terms or use of this Site and/or CLNAA services.
To the extent any provision or portion of these Terms is determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by a competent authority in any jurisdiction, then such determination of that provision or portion thereof will not affect: (a) the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms; or (b) the legality, validity or enforceability of that provision in any other jurisdiction, and that provision (or portion thereof) will be limited if possible and only thereafter severed, if necessary, to the extent required to render the Agreement valid and enforceable.
The governing language of these Terms shall be English. If these Terms are translated into a language other than English, the English version will prevail to the extent that there is any conflict or discrepancy in meaning between the English version and any translated version thereof. Unless, and only to the extent, prohibited by law in your jurisdiction, any and all disagreements, disputes, mediation, arbitration or litigation relating to these Terms shall be conducted in the English language, including, without limitation, any correspondence, discovery, submissions, filings, pleadings, oral pleadings and arguments, and orders or judgments.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and there are no provisions, understandings, communications, representations, warranties, undertakings, collateral agreements or agreements between the parties relating to the Site other than as set out in these Terms. These Terms supersede any prior or contemporaneous provisions, understandings, communications, representations, warranties, undertakings, collateral agreements and agreements between the parties, whether oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof, and you acknowledge that you have not relied on any of the foregoing in agreeing to enter into these Terms.
You will, at your expense, obtain and maintain all licenses, registrations and approvals required by the government authorities or applicable law in your jurisdiction for the execution and performance of these Terms or any related license agreements.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment
CLNAA’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. CLNAA may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.

Changes to Site Information
While every effort has been made to ensure technical accuracy, information on the Site is subject to change without notice, and does not represent a commitment on the part of CLNAA. If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict. These terms control the relationship between CLNAA and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

Applicable law
These terms are governed by Florida law.
