We disclaim all copyright and ownership in such works and all responsibility for them. Although we cannot make an absolute guarantee of system security, Gynzy.com takes reasonable steps to keep our services safe and secure. If you have reason to believe system security has been violated, contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for help. If our technical staff finds that a member’s files or processes pose a threat to the proper technical operation of the system or to the security of other members, we reserve the right to delete those files or to stop those processes. If our technical staff suspects that a user name is used by an improper user, that user’s access may be disabled in order to preserve system security. In all such cases, Gynzy.com will contact the member as soon as feasible. We have the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to:
(i) Edit, redact or otherwise change any User Content;

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and to cancel user access at any time.
5.2. Rights and Responsibilities of Gynzy.com Users or Other Posters of User Content.
You are legally and ethically responsible for any User Content – writings, files, pictures or any other work – that you post or transmit using any of our Services. In posting User Content, you agree to honor the rights of others, including intellectual-property rights (copyright, patent and trademark), the right to privacy and the right not to be libeled or slandered. For example, if you wish to post a copyrighted work as User Content, you are responsible for first obtaining the copyright holder’s permission. Under United States federal law, you retain copyright on all works you create and post as User Content, unless you choose to renounce such rights expressly.
Because the jurisdiction law as to online systems is unsettled, we urge you to consider the possible effect of laws outside Gynzy.com’s locality or your own residence. Gynzy.com is open to members worldwide (and works published on the World Wide Web are accessible to anyone on the Internet). We cannot guarantee that you will not run into legal trouble in other jurisdictions over your posting.
You agree not to use the Site in any way that could damage, disable, or impair any Services provided by Gynzy.com (or the network(s) connected to the Site), violate the privacy and security of other users, or interfere with any user’s use and enjoyment of any of the Site. You agree not to attempt to gain unauthorized access to any services offered on the Site, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to the Site, through hacking, password mining or any other means. You agree not to obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through the Site.

Providing your real name is required to sign up as a user of Gynzy.com. Anonymous or pseudonymous accounts are not allowed. Sharing your account login information (e.g., username and password) is also strictly prohibited. Any violation of these rules will result in the termination of your account.
Gynzy.com is not legally responsible for your behavior or that of other users. Your access to other users’ postings, as User Content, is for your personal use only. If you want to redistribute postings found as User Content, it is your responsibility to obtain permission from the poster (and any other person with rights in such work).

13. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
Gynzy.com and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
(i) Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
(ii) Claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
(iii) Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
(iv) Claims that may arise after the termination of this agreement.
This agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this agreement.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.
Notwithstanding any provision in this agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Gynzy.com makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a registered user of our Site, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
YOU AND GYNZY.COM AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, UNLESS BOTH YOU AND GYNZY.COM AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
For any claim related to this agreement or our Service, excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, where the total amount sought is less than ten thousand U.S. Dollars ($10,000 USD), either we or you may elect at any point in or during a dispute or proceeding to resolve the claim through binding nonappearance-based arbitration. In such an event, the arbitration shall be conducted at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online or based solely on written submissions. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
14. Governing Law; Venue.
If for any reason, the foregoing Arbitration Agreement shall not apply, by using this Site, you expressly agree that your rights and obligations shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with New York State law, excluding its choice of law rules. Any legal action or proceeding relating to your access to or use of the Site or Materials shall be instituted in a state or federal court in the State of New York, County of New York. You and Gynzy.com agree exclusively and irrevocably to submit to the jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, these courts in any such legal action or proceeding.
