You may be accessing our Sites from a computer, mobile device, App or by any other means now known or hereafter devised, and these Terms of Use govern your use of our Sites and your conduct, regardless of the means of access. You may be using our interactive services and digital services (“Interactive and Digital Services”) including dashboards, reports, alerts, messages, calendars, profiles, blogs, lists, groups, media, cloud, posts, Q&A, sales and other services whether currently existing or hereafter devised, and these Terms of Use govern your use of all such Interactive and Digital Services.  You may be using our Sites and/or Interactive and Digital Services on behalf of a company or other legal entity.  If so, these Terms of Use govern your and your company’s use of all such Sites and/or Interactive and Digital Services.

We may also provide links to and/or interact with you on third party sites (Third Party Sites). Our Terms of Use provide guidelines, rules and regulations in connection with our Interactive and Digital Services, including services that involve Third Party Sites, but Electra does not control the Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use do not apply to companies that Electra does not own or control, or to the actions of people that Electra does not employ or manage.

In addition, Electra will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any Third Party Sites. By using the Sites, you expressly release Electra from any and all liability arising from your use of any Third Party Sites. Accordingly, we encourage you to be aware when you leave the Sites and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each other Third Party Site that you visit.

General
The Sites and Interactive and Digital Services are created and controlled by Electra in the State of New York, U.S.A. As such, the internal substantive laws of the State of New York will govern these Terms of Use, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. Any claim or dispute arising under or related to the Sites, the Interactive and Digital Services and/or the subject matter of these Terms of Use (including, without limitation, any controversy or claim relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Use and/or the enforceability of this arbitration provision) shall be resolved by binding arbitration by a single arbitrator pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator shall be a former or retired judge. The award or decision rendered by the arbitrator (including liability for the legal costs and expenses of the party that substantially prevails in the dispute as set forth below) shall be final, binding, and conclusive and any court of competent jurisdiction may enter judgment upon such record. The award of the arbitrator shall include the payment of all costs and expenses including, without limitation, attorney fees, arbitration fees and all other legal fees, costs and expenses relating to the dispute, incurred by the party that the arbitrator determines substantially prevailed in the dispute, subject to the arbitrator’s sole determination. All proceedings connected with the arbitration, including hearings, shall be held in the City of New York, borough of Manhattan. This section does not preclude a party from seeking equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction.

It is the express wish of the parties that these Terms of Use and all related documents be drawn up in English.

These Terms of Use, together with the Privacy Policy and any other legal notices published by Electra on the Sites or elsewhere, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Electra concerning the Sites. If any provision of these Terms of Use is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use shall be unimpaired and the unenforceable term or provision shall be replaced by such enforceable term or provision as comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable term or provision. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Electra’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Electra reserves the right to amend these Terms of Use at any time and without notice, and it is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use for any changes. Your use of the Sites following any amendment of these Terms of Use will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms. TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU AND ELECTRA AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITES AND THE INTERACTIVE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN SIX (6) MONTHS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES.
