Introduction; Your Agreement to These Terms of Service. These Terms of Service ("Terms") apply to the web sites, web pages, interactive features, applications, widgets, blogs, social networks, social network "tabs," alternative reality worlds or features, or other online or wireless offerings that post a link to these Terms, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology, manner or means (each, a "Site," and collectively, the "Sites"). The Sites are offered by Hot Mic, Inc. and/or one of its subsidiaries or affiliated companies or other companies associated with Hot Mic, Inc. (collectively, "Hot Mic," or "we", "us", "our").

These Terms govern your rights and responsibilities in connection with the particular Site you are using (referred to sometimes as "the" Site). The term “Site” includes the content on that Site, all of our services provided on or through that Site (the "Site Services"), and any software that we make available on or through that Site (the "Software"), unless otherwise specified. The Terms apply whether you are a user that registers an account with Hot Mic or an unregistered user.

You "use" the Site anytime you access (via computer, mobile device or other technology), view, link to or from, or otherwise interact or communicate with or connect to, the Site (or any parts thereof) or interact or communicate with other users through the Site (including, without limitation, on message boards, chat rooms and/or other communities established on the Site).

Your use of the Site (or any part thereof) signifies your agreement to be bound by these Terms and the Hot Mic Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy"), which is hereby incorporated by this reference into these Terms. When using or opening an account with Hot Mic on behalf of a company, entity or organization (collectively, “Subscribing Entity”), you represent and warrant that you (i) are an authorized representative of that Subscribing Entity with the authority to bind the Subscribing Entity to these Terms and grant the licenses set forth herein; and (ii) agree to these Terms on behalf of such Subscribing Entity. These Terms are a binding legal agreement between you and HOT MIC: please read them carefully before you use the Site.

Do not use the Site if you do not agree with any of the terms contained herein.

Given the nature of the Internet, even though the Site is ordinarily (but not always) targeted to United States of America ("USA") residents, it may be accessed in other parts of the world. If you are not a USA resident and yet use the Site, you acknowledge, understand and agree that you are doing so on your own initiative and at your own risk and that it is your responsibility (and not ours) to make sure that your use of the Site complies with all applicable local laws in the jurisdiction from where you access or use the Site. IF YOU ARE NOT A USA RESIDENT, BY SUBMITTING YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ON THE SITE, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER OF SUCH DATA TO THE USA, AND TO THE PROCESSING OF SUCH DATA ON HOT MIC’s (OR ITS DESIGNATED VENDORS’) USA SERVERS, WHERE YOUR DATA WILL BE GOVERNED BY USA LAWS THAT MAY PROVIDE A LOWER (OR DIFFERENT) LEVEL OF DATA PROTECTION THAN YOUR COUNTRY.

Hot Mic reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, and/or add to these Terms or to the Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, at any time. Changes to these Terms or the Privacy Policy will be effective when posted. You agree to review these Terms and the Privacy Policy periodically to become aware of any changes. Your use of the Site or any part thereof after any changes to these Terms or the Privacy Policy are posted will be considered acceptance of those changes and will constitute your agreement to be bound thereby. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse will be to stop using the Site. Your use of certain Site features, functionality, programs or Services (including, without limitation, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, wireless marketing opportunities, photo or video or other User Submissions (as defined below) uploading/posting opportunities, RSS feeds, etc.) offered on or through the Site may be subject to additional or special terms and conditions ("Special Rules"), and before you use any such features, functionality, programs or Services you may be required to indicate your acceptance of such additional Special Rules. All Special Rules are incorporated into these Terms as if fully set forth herein.

Ownership; Restrictions on Use. The content of the Site and all copyrights, patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names and all other intellectual property rights therein are owned by Hot Mic and/or its licensors and are protected by applicable USA and international copyright and other intellectual property laws. You acknowledge, understand and agree that you shall not have, nor be entitled to claim, any rights in and to the Site content and/or any portion thereof, except: (i) with respect to your own User Submissions (excluding any materials - e.g., key art, title treatment, clips, stills, music tracks, etc. - used in your User Submissions that may have been licensed to you by Hot Mic for use in your User Submissions, for example in connection with a contest or other program or feature offered on the Site (such content referred to as the "Hot Mic Licensed Assets")); and/or (ii) to the extent of your limited rights to use the Site for certain personal (non-commercial) purposes, as set forth below in the section titled LICENSES, subject to the conditions set forth in the YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES section below and the other terms and conditions of these Terms. Except in connection with your own User Submissions (and then only to the extent you control them), or unless expressly authorized by Hot Mic pursuant to these Terms or otherwise, you agree not to copy, reproduce, duplicate, stream, capture, access through technology or means other than those provided on the Site, perform, transfer, sell, resell, download, upload, archive, license to others, edit, modify, manipulate, create derivative works from or based upon (including, without limitation, mash-ups, montages, wallpapers, ringtones, greeting cards, T-shirts or other merchandise), publish, republish, post, transmit, publicly display, frame, link from or to, distribute, share, embed, translate, decompile, reverse engineer, translate, incorporate into any hardware or software application, use for commercial purposes, or otherwise use or exploit the Site or any component part thereof. Any of the unauthorized uses referred to above would constitute an infringement of the copyrights and other proprietary rights of Hot Mic and/or its licensors (including, without limitation, other Site users who have submitted their own User Submissions) and a violation of these Terms and may subject you to civil and/or criminal liability under applicable laws.

Privacy Policy. Your privacy is important to Hot Mic. Please review our Privacy Policy for information relating to how we collect, use and disclose your personal information, and how you can manage your online privacy when you use the Sites.

Hot Mic User Accounts. In order to access some features within the Sites, you will have to create a Hot Mic user account (each a “User Account”). You may never use another person’s User Account without permission. When creating your User Account, you must provide true, accurate, current and complete information, and you may be required to provide a username and password. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your User Account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify Hot Mic immediately of any known breach of security or unauthorized use of your User Account.

Although Hot Mic will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your User Account, you may be liable for the losses of Hot Mic or others due to such unauthorized use.

Unless expressly permitted in writing by an authorized Hot Mic representative, you may not sell, rent, lease, share or provide access to your User Account to anyone else, including, without limitation, charging anyone for access to administrative rights on your User Account. Hot Mic reserves all available legal rights and remedies to prevent unauthorized use of the Sites, including, but not limited to, technological barriers, IP mapping, and, in serious cases, directly contacting your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) regarding such unauthorized use.

Third Party Accounts. Hot Mic may permit you to register for and log on to the Sites via certain third party services. The third party’s collection, use and disclosure of your information will be subject to that third party service’s privacy policy, and not Hot Mic’s Privacy Policy.

The Sites are also not available to any users previously removed from the Sites by Hot Mic. Finally, the Sites are not available to any persons barred from receiving them under the laws of the United States (such as its export and re-export restrictions and regulations) or applicable laws in any other jurisdiction.

BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SITES, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST 13 YEARS OF AGE, THAT YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN AGREES TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS IF YOU ARE BETWEEN 13 AND THE AGE OF LEGAL MAJORITY IN YOUR JURISDICTION OF RESIDENCE, AND THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY REMOVED FROM OR PROHIBITED FROM THE SITES.

Third Party Links; Third Party Content. The Sites may link to and/or contain advertisements about non-Hot Mic owned or controlled Web sites or other Internet or mobile resources. You acknowledge and understand that Hot Mic does not endorse or sponsor such other third party Web sites or other Internet resources and HOT MIC EXPRESSLY AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR ANY CONTENT, SOFTWARE, FUNCTIONALITY, SERVICES OR ADVERTISED PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FOUND ON OR RELATED TO ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY WEB SITE OR OTHER INTERNET OR MOBILE RESOURCES.

Hot Mic does not control or endorse any Third-Party Content and makes no representation or warranties of any kind regarding the Third-Party Content, including without limitation regarding its accuracy or completeness. Please be aware that we do not create Third Party Content, update, or monitor it. Therefore we are not responsible for any Third Party Content on the Sites.

You are responsible for deciding if you want to access or use third party websites or applications that link from the Sites (“Reference Sites”). Hot Mic does not control or endorse any such Reference Sites or the information, materials, products, or services contained on or accessible through Reference Sites, and makes no representations or warranties of any kind regarding the Reference Sites. In addition, your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers found on or through the Sites are solely between you and such advertiser. Access and use of Reference Sites, including the information, materials, products, and services on or available through Reference Sites is solely at your own risk

User Content. Hot Mic allows users to distribute streaming live and pre-recorded audio-visual works, to use services, such as chat, bulletin boards, forum postings, wiki contributions, voice interactive services and to participate in other activities in which you may create, post, transmit, perform or store content, messages, text, sound, images, applications, code or other data or materials on the Sites (the “User Content”).

Licenses to Hot Mic.

Should such User Content contain the name, identity, likeness and voice (or other biographical information) of third parties, you represent and warrant that you have obtained the appropriate consents and/or licenses for your use of such features and that Hot Mic and its sub-licensees are allowed to use them to the extent indicated in these Terms;

With respect to User Content known as “add-ons”, “maps”, “mods”, or other types of projects submitted through Hot Mic related sites (“Submitted Projects”), the rights granted by you hereunder terminate once you remove or delete such Submitted Projects from the Sites. You also acknowledge that Hot Mic may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of Submitted Projects that have been removed or deleted;

With respect to streaming live and pre-recorded audio-visual works, the rights granted by you hereunder terminate once you delete such User Content from the Sites, or generally by closing your account, except:

to the extent you shared it with others as part of the Sites and others copied or stored portions of the User Content (e.g., made a Clip);

Hot Mic used it for promotional purposes; and

or the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup and other systems.

User Content Representations and Warranties. You are solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing it. You represent, and warrant that:

you are the creator and owner of the User Content or otherwise have sufficient rights and authority to grant the rights granted herein;

Hot Mic reserves all rights and remedies against any users who breach these representations and warranties.

Content is Uploaded at Your Own Risk. Hot Mic uses reasonable security measures in order to attempt to protect User Content against unauthorized copying and distribution.

To the furthest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby agree that Hot Mic shall not be liable for any unauthorized copying, use or distribution of User Content by third parties and release and forever waive any claims you may have against Hot Mic for any such unauthorized copying or usage of the User Content, under any theory. THE SECURITY MEASURES TO PROTECT USER CONTENT USED BY HOT MIC HEREIN ARE PROVIDED AND USED “AS-IS” AND WITH NO WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, CONDITIONS, ASSURANCES OR OTHER TERMS THAT SUCH SECURITY MEASURES WILL WITHSTAND ATTEMPTS TO EVADE SECURITY MECHANISMS OR THAT THERE WILL BE NO CRACKS, DISABLEMENTS OR OTHER CIRCUMVENTION OF SUCH SECURITY MEASURES.

You may carry out Promotions to the extent permitted by applicable law and you are solely responsible for ensuring that any Promotions comply with any and all applicable laws, obligations, and restrictions.

You will be classified as the promoter of your Promotion in the applicable jurisdiction(s) and you will be solely responsible for all aspects of and expenses related to your Promotion, including, without limitation, the execution, administration, and operation of the Promotion; drafting and posting any official rules; selecting winners; issuing prizes; and obtaining all necessary third-party permissions and approvals, including, without limitation, filing any and all necessary registrations and bonds.

When you Submit (or attempt to Submit) your User Submissions on or by means of the Site, you automatically grant to HOT MIC and its affiliates, an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, unconditional, unrestricted, fully-paid, royalty-free, transferable, fully sublicenseable to multiple tiers of sublicensees, non-exclusive right and license (the "HOT MIC License") to display, publicly perform, distribute (including, without limitation, through third-party Web sites, blogs, microblogs and other social networking media and Internet and mobile resources and applications), store, transcode, host, cache, maintain, broadcast, webcast, mobilecast, transmit, distribute, tag, track, reproduce, edit, modify, format, re-format, link to and from, translate, delete, create derivative works, combine with other content, categorize, and/or otherwise use, reuse and/or otherwise exploit your User Submissions (or any portions or derivative works thereof) and any names, likenesses, voices, images, digital recordings, performances, and other ideas, concepts, feedback and other materials included in your User Submissions, in any manner, medium or content delivery technology now known or hereinafter devised, for any purpose, as determined solely in HOT MIC's (or its authorized designees/licensees') sole discretion, without the requirement for any compensation to you or anyone else, or the need to require additional consent from you or anyone else, or the need to provide prior notification or any credit to you or anyone else. The HOT MIC License shall survive in perpetuity in accordance with its terms regardless of whether you stop using the Site or HOT MIC terminates your access to the Site.

NOTHING CONTAINED HEREIN SHALL BE DEEMED TO TRANSFER TO HOT MIC OR TO ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES ANY OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN AND TO YOUR USER SUBMISSIONS, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT HOT MIC AND/OR ITS AFFILIATES AND/OR ITS LICENSORS WILL RETAIN SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OWNERSHIP OF ANY OF THE HOT MIC LICENSED ASSETS (IF ANY) INCLUDED IN YOUR USER SUBMISSIONS. EVEN THOUGH BY SUBMITTING YOUR USER SUBMISSIONS YOU ARE GRANTING TO HOT MIC THE BROAD RIGHTS AND LICENSES SET FORTH ABOVE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT NOTHING CONTAINED HEREIN SHALL OBLIGATE HOT MIC AND/OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES OR AUTHORIZED DESIGNEES TO HOST, DISTRIBUTE, DISPLAY OR OTHERWISE EXPLOIT ANY OF YOUR USER SUBMISSIONS OR EXERCISE ANY OTHER RIGHTS UNDER THE HOT MIC LICENSE.

You acknowledge and agree that: (a) you have no expectation of confidentiality of any nature with respect to any of your User Submissions, and (b) HOT MIC and/or any of its affiliates may already have projects under consideration that are similar to your User Submissions or may independently develop projects that are similar to your User Submissions, or other User Submissions transmitted by other users of the Site may be similar or the same as your User Submissions. Because of the viral nature of social media, you should not submit any content or information to HOT MIC that you do not want to be viewed and "shared" or otherwise distributed by others. In connection with all of the User Submissions you Submit to the Site, and any other activities that you conduct on or by means of the Site, you represent, warrant and covenant that: (i) the User Submissions are original to you (in other words, that you own all rights in and to your User Submissions) or, alternatively, that you have acquired all necessary rights in your User Submissions to enable you to grant to HOT MIC the HOT MIC License; (ii) you have paid or satisfied and will pay or satisfy in full all license fees, clearance fees, royalties, and any other financial or third party obligations of any kind, if any, arising from any use or exploitation of your User Submissions, and HOT MIC will not be responsible for such obligations; (iii) your User Submissions do not infringe the intellectual property rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, or any other legal or moral rights of any third party; (iv) neither your User Submissions, nor any of the other activities that you undertake on the Site, are or will at any time be: defamatory or disparaging of any individual or entity, unlawful, pornographic, obscene, threatening, vulgar, indecent, profane, hateful, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, intended to bully or harass or stalk, or resulting in bullying, harassing, or stalking, racially or ethnically or culturally offensive, or otherwise objectionable or encouraging of criminal conduct, or giving rise, or potentially giving rise, to civil or criminal liability, or linking to infringing or unauthorized content, or transmitting unsolicited advertising materials, or intended to result in, or resulting in, any mental or physical distress or injury to any person, violative of any Applicable Laws or these Terms, or violative of any person’s publicity or privacy rights; and (v) your User Submissions are not intended by you to benefit any commercial enterprise associated with you or any third party. You agree to keep all records necessary to establish that your User Submissions do not violate any of the foregoing representations and warranties and to make such records available to HOT MIC upon HOT MIC's request.

HOT MIC is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage of any kind to any User Submissions.

If you remove or delete any of your User Submissions from the Site, that User Submission will be removed from the Site within a reasonable period of time. Nonetheless, a User Submission that you remove may still be available to third parties who previously acquired the link to that User Submission and HOT MIC may maintain copies for archival purposes.

HOT MIC reserves the right to display advertisements in connection with your User Submissions and to use your User Submissions to advertise and promote your User Submissions or the Site (in whole or in part) or any of HOT MIC’s products or services. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right or interest in any of the revenue generated from such advertisements.

These provisions shall remain in full force and effect in perpetuity notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Site.

You may direct copyright infringement notifications to info@hotmic.io. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to Hot Mic customer service through hotmic.io

Counter-Notice. If you believe that your Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your Content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
Your physical or electronic signature;
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;
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
Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Chicago, Illinois, 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 Copyright Agent, Hot Mic 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 Content provider, member or user, 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 Hot Mic's sole discretion.

User Account Termination Policy. Hot Mic will terminate a user's access to the Service if, under appropriate circumstances, the user is determined to be a repeat infringer. Hot Mic reserves the right to decide whether Content violates these Terms for reasons other than copyright infringement, such as, but not limited to, pornography, obscenity, or excessive length. Hot Mic may at any time, without prior notice and in its sole discretion, remove such Content and/or terminate a user's account for submitting such material in violation of these Terms.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Hot Mic reserves the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Sites (including to post User Content), and to block or prevent your future access to and use of the Sites, including where we reasonably consider that: (a) your use of the Sites violates these Terms or applicable law; (b) you fraudulently use or misuse the Sites; or (c) we are unable to continue providing the Sites to you due to technical or legitimate business reasons. This includes the ability to terminate or to suspend your access to any purchased products or services, including any subscriptions, Hot Mic Prime or Turbo accounts. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, your only remedy with respect to any dissatisfaction with (i) the Sites, (ii) any term of these Terms, (iii) any policy or practice of Hot Mic in operating the Sites, or (iv) any content or information transmitted through the Sites, is to terminate your account and to discontinue use of any and all parts of the Sites.

NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM HOT MIC OR THROUGH THE SITES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED HEREIN. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AS USED IN THIS SECTION 15, THE TERM “HOT MIC” INCLUDES HOT MIC’S OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SHAREHOLDERS, AGENTS, LICENSORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS.

Neither Hot Mic nor any of its affiliates make any warranties or representations about the accuracy or completeness of content available on or through the Site or the content of any Web sites, Personal Social Media or other Internet or mobile resources linked to the Site and assume no liability or responsibility for any: (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of the Site (or any parts thereof); (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of Hot Mic's secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Site; (v) any bugs, viruses, Trojan horses, or the like which may be transmitted to or through the Site (or any parts thereof) by any third party; and/or (vi) for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any User Submissions and/or other Site content posted, shared, forwarded, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available on or by means of the Site and/or otherwise through your or any other Site users' exercise of any rights under any of the Licenses granted by Hot Mic herein. Hot Mic reserves the right, in its sole and exclusive discretion, to change, modify, add, remove or disable access to any portion of the Site (including, without limitation any of the Site Services).

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A) IN NO EVENT SHALL HOT MIC OR THE HOT MIC PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF PROFITS OR LOSS OF DATA, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITES, THE CONTENT OR THE MATERIALS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY OR RESULTING FROM RELIANCE BY USER ON ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM HOT MIC, OR THAT RESULT FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELETION OF FILES OR EMAIL, ERRORS, DEFECTS, VIRUSES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, WHETHER OR NOT RESULTING FROM ACTS OF GOD, COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO HOT MIC’S RECORDS, PROGRAMS OR SERVICES; AND (B) IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF HOT MIC, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITES EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU, IF ANY, FOR ACCESSING THE SITES DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE CLAIM OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.

HOT MIC WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITES TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS

Exclusions and Limitations. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you.

Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Hot Mic, its affiliated companies, contractors, employees, agents and its third-party suppliers, licensors, and partners from any claims, losses, damages, liabilities, including legal fees and expenses, arising out of your use or misuse of the Sites, any User Content you post, store or otherwise transmit in or through the Sites, your violation of the rights of any third party, any violation by you of these Terms, or any breach of the representations, warranties, and covenants made by you herein. Hot Mic reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify Hot Mic, and you agree to cooperate with Hot Mic’s defense of these claims.

In the event of such a merger, acquisition, or sale, your continued use of the Site signifies your agreement to be bound by the terms of use and privacy statement of the Site's subsequent owner or operator. This provision shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Site.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you hereby irrevocably waive any right or remedy to seek and/or obtain injunctive or other equitable relief or any order with respect to, and/or to enjoin or restrain or otherwise impair in any manner, the production, distribution, exhibition or other exploitation of any Hot Mic or any Hot Mic affiliate-related motion picture, production or project, or the use, publication or dissemination of any advertising or promotion in connection with such motion picture, production or project. This provision shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Site

Binding Arbitration. THESE TERMS SHALL BE CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITHOUT REGARD TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAWS PRINCIPLES, REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU LIVE.

THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE A CONFIDENTIAL PROCEEDING, CLOSED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL ISSUE A WRITTEN OPINION STATING THE ESSENTIAL FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS UPON WHICH THE ARBITRATOR'S AWARD IS BASED. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL HAVE THE POWER TO ENTER TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDERS AND PRELIMINARY AND PERMANENT INJUNCTIONS. NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE ENTITLED OR PERMITTED TO COMMENCE OR MAINTAIN ANY ACTION IN A COURT OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO ANY MATTER IN DISPUTE UNTIL SUCH MATTER SHALL HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED TO ARBITRATION AS HEREIN PROVIDED AND THEN ONLY FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE ARBITRATOR'S AWARD.

Severability; Waiver. If any provision of these Terms shall be held unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The failure of HOT MIC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Site or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

Governing Law. All questions concerning the construction, validity and interpretation of these Terms and the performance of the obligations imposed by these Terms shall be governed by the internal law, not the law of conflicts, of the State of Illinois.
