Please send the following information to our designated copyright agent:

- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief the copyrighted work was removed in error.

We reserve the right to communicate with you via email or other means.
Note that each owner of intellectual property is responsible for protecting their rights and taking any legal or other action they determine to be appropriate to do so, and iVisa does not accept any obligation to take any particular action to enforce or protect any party’s intellectual property rights on their behalf.
This Agreement and any other agreements iVisa may post on the Service or that you and iVisa may execute from to time constitute the entire agreement between iVisa and you in connection with your use of the Service and supersede any prior agreements between iVisa and you regarding use of the Service, including prior versions of this Agreement.
Binding Arbitration / Class Waiver
YOU AND WE EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT ANY LEGAL CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR OTHER CONTROVERSY BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE RELATING IN ANY WAY TO iVISA, THE SERVICE, CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER GOODS, SERVICES OR ADVERTISING BY iVISA, INCLUDING ANY PRODUCTS SOLD THROUGH THIRD PARTY SELLERS OR PAYMENTS MADE TO THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSORS, INCLUDING CONTROVERSIES RELATING TO THE APPLICABILITY, ENFORCEABILITY OR VALIDITY OF ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT (COLLECTIVELY “DISPUTES”), SHALL BE RESOLVED IN CONFIDENTIAL BINDING ARBITRATION CONDUCTED BEFORE ONE COMMERCIAL ARBITRATOR FROM THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”), RATHER THAN IN A COURT, AS DESCRIBED HEREIN. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE AAA'S COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND, IF THE ARBITRATOR DEEMS THEM APPLICABLE, THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (COLLECTIVELY “RULES AND PROCEDURES”). YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY FORFEITING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO OTHERWISE PROCEED IN A LAWSUIT IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN.
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is extremely limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual.
Payment of arbitration costs will be governed by the AAA’s fee schedule, unless you are able to show that your portion will be prohibitive as compared to litigation costs, in which case iVisa will pay as much of your arbitration costs as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation costs. iVisa also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all arbitration costs imposed by the AAA. You and we each agrees to pay our own respective attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a governing statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid attorneys’ fees and expenses. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, iVisa will not seek to recover attorneys’ fees or costs incurred in arbitration from you if you are a consumer. The arbitration shall be conducted in Newark, Delaware, except that, in the event Newark is not within 100 miles of your residence, the arbitration may be conducted within 100 miles of your residence, unless the parties agree otherwise in writing. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at https://www.adr.org.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, to the extent the Dispute arises from: (a) a violation of either party’s intellectual property rights in any manner; and/or (b) any claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, unauthorized use or a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; then you and iVisa agree that a party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in a state or federal court in Newark, Delaware, and both parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts in connection with such proceedings. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Disputes that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration as long as such action remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
ALL DISPUTES SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. NO PARTY MAY BRING ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS PROCEEDING. THE CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE JOINED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONSOLIDATED OR JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim or request for relief, then such claim or request for relief (and only that claim or request for relief) shall be severed from the arbitration and may be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Newark, Delaware, subject to the parties’ respective rights to appeal the decision. All other claims or requests for relief shall be arbitrated. The parties agree that any claims or requests for relief that are severed from an arbitration may not proceed in litigation and shall be stayed until all claims between the parties remaining in arbitration are finally resolved. The parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Delaware for purposes of resolving any claims or requests for relief severed from arbitration pursuant to this paragraph.
You can opt out of the provisions of this Agreement that require the arbitration of Disputes by providing us a written opt-out notice within 30 days of the “Effective Date” at the top of this Agreement. To opt out, you must send your name, residence address, and email address together with a clear statement that you want to opt out of the requirement to arbitrate disputes with the applicable party to: Document Advisor, Inc., 19111 Collins Avenue, Apt 1405, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida 33160 ATTN: Arbitration Opt-Out.
Before you commence arbitration of a Dispute, you must provide us with a written Notice of Dispute that includes your name, residence address, username (if applicable) and email address associated with your User account (if applicable), a detailed description of the Dispute, and the relief you seek. Before we commence arbitration of a Dispute against you, we will provide a written Notice of Dispute to you with a detailed description of the Dispute and the relief we seek. Any Notice of Dispute you send to us should be sent via email to [email protected] with a subject matter of “Dispute Notice”. If we are unable to resolve a Dispute within 30 days after the applicable Notice of Dispute is received, either party may commence arbitration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if we make any future material modification to any provisions of this Agreement that govern the arbitration or resolution of Disputes, such changes will not apply to any Dispute between you and us for which either party had previously provided a written Notice of Dispute to the other in accordance with this paragraph. Further, if we make any future material changes to the provisions of this Agreement that govern the arbitration or resolution of Disputes, you may reject such changes by sending a written notice of your rejection decision to us via email to [email protected] or by mail to Document Advisor, Inc., 19111 Collins Avenue, Apt 1405, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida 33160 ATTN: Arbitration Opt-Out within 30 days of the effective date of such modifications.

All parts of this Agreement apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right.
