You can file your complaint at support@darkinertia.com, and we will make reasonable and good faith efforts to respond to such claims within 14 days.

Arbitration for Less than $10,000. For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) under this Agreement where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000 USD, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The party electing such arbitration will initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (i) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, as selected by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (iii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

You agree that any claim asserted in any legal proceeding by you against Dark Inertia Studios shall be commenced and maintained exclusively in any state or federal court located in San Francisco County, California, having subject matter jurisdiction with respect to the dispute between the parties and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts. In any dispute arising under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorneys’ fees and expenses. YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

If you are located anywhere other than the United States, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by Irish law, except for its conflicts of laws principles.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER. This provision only applies to Users in the U.S. and Canada. YOU AGREE THAT WE CAN ONLY BRING A CLAIM AGAINST EACH OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND YOU AGREE NOT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR COLLECTIVE ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT OF THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM AND NOT OTHER DARK INERTIA STUDIOS USERS AND CANNOT BE USED TO DECIDE OTHER DISPUTES WITH OTHER USERS. If a court decides that this provision on “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” is illegal or unenforceable, you agree that it shall be severable from the Agreement and any claim or dispute would be resolved in court. You have the right to opt out ad not be bound by the class action waiver by sending us written notice of your decision to opt out through support@darkinertia.com or by physical mail as stated in “Our Contact Information.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Service or availability of this opt-out, whichever is later; otherwise, you shall be bound by this class action waiver.
