We may amend this Agreement. Any such amendment will be effective thirty (30) days following either our dispatch of a notice to you or our posting of the amendment on the All-American Model UN website.

Termination of Membership and Access Restriction
All-American Model UN reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to downgrade or terminate your access to the Services, for any reason and at any time without prior notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of some or all of the Services if you violate these Terms or use the Services in a manner that may expose us to legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others’ use of the Services.

All-American Model UN also reserves the right to modify or discontinue, either temporarily or permanently, any part of its Services with notice.

THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
Release and Indemnity
By using our Service, you, on behalf of yourself and your heirs, executors, agents, representatives, and assigns, fully release, forever discharge, and hold All-American Model UN, its partners (including any third-party companies engaged by All-American Model UN to fulfill business formation, registered agent or other business filing orders), your Program Sponsor (if applicable) and its affiliates, and its and their respective officers, employees, directors and agents, harmless from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, and actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services.

You agree to indemnify and hold All-American Model UN, its partners (including any third-party companies engaged by All-American Model UN to fulfill business formation, registered agent or other business filing orders), your Program Sponsor (if applicable) and its affiliates, and its and their respective officers, employees, directors and agent harmless from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of any third party claims relating to your use of the Service, your violation of these Terms or your violation of any rights of another.
Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our Customer Service Department at 1-857-400-9525. Y
However, if All-American Model UN is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to your use of the Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through binding arbitration under the auspices of JAMS Alternative Dispute Resolution (“JAMS”). JAMS will administer any such arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Boston (MA), or any other location as to which we may then mutually agree. A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute.
You may only resolve disputes with All-American Model UN on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.
Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate our disputes as provided above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
Either you or All-American Model UN may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Cambridge, MA or in any United States county where you live or work without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
All-American Model UN may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of the Services or intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
In the event that the agreement to arbitrate provided herein is found to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, then as a condition to your use of the Services we agree that any resulting judicial proceedings will be brought in the federal or state courts of Boston, California, and by your use of the Services you expressly consent to venue and personal jurisdiction of the courts therein.
All-American Model UN may, in the future, make changes to these provisions regarding dispute resolution and arbitration by providing notice in accordance with the “Modifications” section below. You may reject any changes to this section made during your Membership by sending us written notice.
These Terms are governed by the law of Massachusetts, U.S.A., unless preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and All-American Model UN with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms.
Waiver, Severability and Assignment
All-American Model UN’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting the intent of the unenforceable language as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Rocket Lawyer may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. We encourage users to periodically review the Terms to ensure that you understand them in their entirety.
You may reach us by phone at 857-400-9525 from 9AM-7PM Monday through Friday Eastern Time.
