Such products, services, and applications must be purchased and/or obtained directly from such third parties pursuant to the applicable third-party terms. The inclusion of any third-party links or third-party technology, services, software, or applications on the Fisker Properties does not imply endorsement by Fisker of the linked site(s) or third-party offerings. If you decide to use any such third-party website or offerings, you do so at your own risk.
5. User Content
A Your Responsibility for Your Content
By using the Fisker Properties, including any features that facilitate the sharing of content on the Fisker Properties or to or from third-party sites, you understand that you are solely responsible for any graphics, photographs, video, images, text, and other information and content, or hyperlinks to any of the foregoing, that you provide, post, upload, publish, transmit or distribute on or through the Fisker Properties for access or use by other Users of the Fisker Properties (“Your Content”). Fisker does not own Your Content, and you, not Fisker, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of Your Content. You represent and warrant that (a) Your Content and Fisker’s use thereof will not violate any federal, state or local law, regulation ordinance, court order, or other legal process (“Applicable Law”), or infringe any rights of any third party, including but not limited to any intellectual property rights and/or privacy rights; and (b) Your Content is accurate and truthful. You acknowledge and agree that Fisker has no obligation to post or store Your Content. As such, we recommend that you take measures to preserve copies of any content you post through the Fisker Properties.
B Our Right to Use Your Content
C Our Right to Remove Your Content
We have the absolute right to remove or disable access to any content on the Fisker Properties as needed to (a) operate, secure and improve the Fisker Properties (including without limitation for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, and customer support purposes); (b) ensure Users’ compliance with the Agreement (or any Fisker policy), Applicable Law, or an order or requirement of a court, law enforcement, or other administrative agency or governmental body; or (c) as otherwise set forth in this Agreement. If we become aware of any content posted on the Fisker Properties that allegedly violates this Agreement, we may investigate the allegation and determine in our sole discretion whether to act, but have no liability or responsibility to you to do so. You agree to cooperate with us in good faith, as we may reasonably request, in any investigation we choose to undertake with respect to Your Content.
D No Endorsement by Fisker
Fisker acts as a passive conduit for the content provided by Users of the Fisker Properties and has no obligation to screen or monitor such content. Content is provided at Users’ discretion and does not in any way constitute our endorsement. We use commercially reasonable efforts to monitor and remove Users who violate this Agreement, but have no obligation to monitor Users and disclaim any representation, warranty or undertaking in relation to the truthfulness, accuracy or reliability of the content provided by Users.
E Infringing Content
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available through the Fisker Properties infringe your copyright, you (or your Influencer) may send us a written notice by mail or e-mail, requesting that we remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send Fisker a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Fisker’s DMCA agent as follows: By mail to Legal Department, 1888 Rosecrans Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266; or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once this procedure has been followed, we will respond to valid and properly substantiated complaints by making all reasonable efforts to remove manifestly illegal content within a reasonable time. We may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Fisker Properties and/or terminate the accounts of Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others.

The state courts of California and federal courts sitting in the Central District of California have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute arising under or relating to these Terms.
15. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY. IT INCLUDES AN AGREEMENT TO MANDATORY ARBITRATION FOR USERS IN THE UNITED STATES, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY DISPUTE RELATED TO YOUR USE OF ANY OF THE SITES TO BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN PROCEED IN COURT. THIS PROVISION ALSO INCLUDES A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO PROCEED WITH ANY DISPUTE INDIVIDUALLY AND NOT AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION. THIS AGREEMENT ALSO INCLUDES A JURY WAIVER.
A Initial Dispute Resolution
We are available by e-mail at email@example.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Fisker Properties. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. You agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
B Agreement to Binding Arbitration
If we do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated, then either you or we may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to the Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the scope of this arbitration clause, the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Fisker Properties shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered on a confidential basis by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), in accordance with the AAA Arbitration Rules and Procedures, as modified herein, and excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. The parties shall select a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of the Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be in writing and provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions, shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. If you initiate arbitration, to the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds Two Hundred and Fifty U.S. Dollars ($250), and the claim is found to be non-frivolous, we will pay the additional cost. You will not be required to pay fees and costs incurred by us if you do not prevail in arbitration.
You understand that, absent this mandatory provision, you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You further understand that the right to discovery and appeal, among others, may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
C Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver
You and we each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in our respective individual capacities only and not as a class action, and you and we each expressly waive our respective right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.
D Dispute Resolution for United Kingdom and European Union Residents
Sections 15.B and 15.C do not apply to Users who are residents of the United Kingdom or European Union. Such Users agree that all claims arising out of or relating to the Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Fisker Properties shall be conducted under and subject to local requirements, and if available, any alternative dispute resolution process the parties may agree to participate in.
The Agreement operates to the fullest extent permissible by law. If Fisker fails to act with respect to your breach or anyone else's breach on any occasion, Fisker is not waiving its right to act with respect to future or similar breaches. If any provision of the Agreement is unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision is deemed severable from the Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions of the Agreement. This Agreement contains the entire understanding between Fisker and you relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements between us. You may not assign or transfer your rights and benefits under this Agreement without our prior written consent, but we may assign or transfer this Agreement without restriction. Nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits, save that our corporate affiliates are deemed express third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
