2. Account Registration and Security Responsibilities


In order to access certain parts of the PhotographyTrader Service, you may be required to create an PhotographyTrader account (an “Account”) or a seller payment account ("PayPal Account”) with PayPal Holdings, Inc. ("PayPal"). In connection with creating an Account or a PayPal Account, you must provide certain information (“Registration Data”) and answer all questions or fields marked “required.” You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete Registration Data; (b) maintain and update such Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete; (c) maintain the security of your Account and the PayPal Account, including by maintaining the security and confidentiality of your login credentials; and (d) consent to allow PhotographyTrader to contact you for the purpose of confirming some or all of your Registration Data, to conduct research and to resolve disputes, as PhotographyTrader may elect to do from time to time.


3. Purchases From Other Users.


A. Cash and Other Payments Determined by Users. A buyer may, by agreement with the seller, elect to make payment by cash, check or other payment method accepted by the seller. Such payments are made directly between the buyer and the seller when they meet in person to complete their purchase and sale transaction, pursuant to terms they determine. PhotographyTrader is not a party to such transactions, and does not facilitate such transactions, refunds or returns in any manner.


B. PhotographyTrader Payment Solution. A buyer and seller may instead pay with and accept credit cards and other electronic payment methods (each an “Electronic Payment Method”) through the PhotographyTrader Service. PhotographyTrader has integrated with PayPal, a payment processing service, to allow sellers to accept certain Electronic Payment Methods from buyers using PayPal's payment processing services (“PhotographyTrader Payment Solution”). Buyers who wish to use the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution must register an Electronic Payment Method with PhotographyTrader, and sellers must enroll for the service through PayPal. Enrollment in and usage of the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution is voluntary, so buyers should note that some sellers may not accept Electronic Payment Methods, or may only accept Electronic Payment Methods for certain transactions. PhotographyTrader, in its sole discretion, may from time to time impose limits on your ability to make and/or receive payments through the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution. Additionally, PayPal may impose its own limits and limitations on a seller’s use of the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution. For instance, a seller’s enrollment in the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution is subject to PayPal's confirmation that the seller meets PayPal's enrollment criteria. Sellers should refer to Section 2(d) below for information about the impact of failing to meet PayPal's enrollment criteria.


i. Buyers. As with any purchases made using cash, all purchases made using the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution are made directly between the buyer and the seller when they meet in person to complete their purchase and sale transaction, pursuant to the terms they determine. When you initiate a payment through the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution, the seller processes your Electronic Payment Method using PayPal's payment processing service. PhotographyTrader is not a party to purchase and sale transactions completed using the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution, and does not facilitate such transactions, refunds or returns in any manner, except to provide an interface through which you can provide your Electronic Payment Method to PayPal to process on behalf of the seller.


ii. Sellers. By using the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution to accept Electronic Payment Methods, you are entering into an agreement with PayPal subject to the terms of the PayPal Connected Account Agreement, which includes the PayPal Terms of Service (collectively, the "Paypal Services Agreement”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the PayPal Services Agreement, you will not have the right to have PayPal, and will not request that PayPal, transfer any buyer data PayPal collects via the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution to an alternative payment processor. Except for the foregoing restriction that supersedes any rights you may have in the PayPal Services Agreement, the PayPal Services Agreement is separate from these Terms. PhotographyTrader is not a party to the PayPal Services Agreement and will not be liable or responsible for the payment services provided by PayPal. If PayPal discontinues providing services in connection with the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution, you authorize PayPal to share your payment method information with an alternative third-party payment processor that is or will be integrated into the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution.


iii. Seller Fees. You agree to pay the service fees (“Service Fees”) described in the FAQs for the sales transactions you make using the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution. The Service Fees include Electronic Payment Method processing fees to PayPal and service fees to PhotographyTrader. PhotographyTrader reserves the right to change the Service Fees from time to time.


iv. Receiving Sales Proceeds. Upon completion of a sale in which the buyer uses the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution, if you have not previously set up a PayPal Account, then you must set up a PayPal Business Account in accordance with the requirements specified by PayPal to receive the payment via the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution. PAYPAL MUST ACCEPT YOUR APPLICATION TO USE THE PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER PAYMENT SOLUTION BEFORE YOU CAN RECEIVE SALES PROCEEDS VIA THE PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER PAYMENT SOLUTION. IF PAYPAL REJECTS YOUR APPLICATION OR YOU FAIL TO SET UP A PAYPAL BUSINESS ACCOUNT WITHIN 90 DAYS AFTER COMPLETION OF A SALE PROCESSED BY PAYPAL THROUGH THE PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER PAYMENT SOLUTION, THEN PAYPAL MAY DISABLE OR LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO RECEIVE SALES PROCEEDS VIA THE PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER PAYMENT SOLUTION.


v. Acceptable Use Violations. YOUR RIGHT AND/OR ABILITY TO RECEIVE SALES PROCEEDS VIA THE PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER PAYMENT SOLUTION MAY BE REVOKED, DISABLED OR LIMITED IF THE SALE VIOLATES SECTION 7 (ACCEPTABLE USE) OF THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR SALES THAT VIOLATE THE PROHIBITED ITEMS GUIDELINES.


vi. Additional Information. For additional information regarding the PhotographyTrader Payment Solution, see our FAQs.


vii. Transactions Final. Regardless of the payment method chosen, ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL, AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS, UNLESS YOU AND THE SELLER OTHERWISE AGREE AND MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR A REFUND. PhotographyTrader will not be responsible for facilitating refunds.


viii. Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to each transaction you complete via the PhotographyTrader Service, including, for example, sales, use, value added, and similar taxes. It is also your responsibility to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate tax authorities.

H. Errors. In the event of an error in connection with the pricing or charging of Paid Services, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the purchase and refund any amount charged.

19. Arbitration


PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO BINDING ARBITRATION (INCLUDING A JURY TRIAL WAIVER) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES (OTHER THAN SPECIFIED INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CLAIMS AND SMALL CLAIMS) WITH PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM PHOTOGRAPHYTRADER (NO CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS).


A. Binding Arbitration. Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) arising out of or related to a violation of Section 7 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and PhotographyTrader agree (1) to waive your and PhotographyTrader’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, the PhotographyTrader Service or the Materials, resolved in a court, and (2) to waive your and PhotographyTrader’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and PhotographyTrader agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).


B. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and PhotographyTrader agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the PhotographyTrader Service or the Materials is personal to you and PhotographyTrader and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and PhotographyTrader agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and PhotographyTrader agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.


C. Federal Arbitration Act. You and PhotographyTrader agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 20 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.


D. Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. You and PhotographyTrader agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to PhotographyTrader shall be sent by certified mail or courier to ori9ami co. co., Attn: PhotographyTrader Designated Agent, 5750 Amaya Dr. #19, La Mesa, CA 91942. Your notice must include (1) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Account, and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (2) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (3) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent to the email address you used to register for your Account, and will include (a) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and PhotographyTrader cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or PhotographyTrader may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 20, commence an arbitration proceeding, or to the extent specifically provided for in section 20(A), file a claim in court.


E. Process. Except for Disputes arising out of or related to a violation of Section 7 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and PhotographyTrader agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or PhotographyTrader within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and PhotographyTrader will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and PhotographyTrader agree that (1) any arbitration will occur in San Diego County, California, (2) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (3) that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in San Diego County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.


F. Authority of the Arbitrator. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (1) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (2) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.


G. Rules of JAMS. The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (1) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS, or (2) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.


H. Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 20 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 20 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 20(B) are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.


I. Opt-Out Right. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 20 by writing to: ori9ami co. co., Attn: PhotographyTrader Designated Agent, 5750 Amaya Dr. #19, La Mesa, CA 91942. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt-out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 20.


20. Governing Law; Venue.


These Terms, your access to and use of the PhotographyTrader Service and Materials shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in San Diego County, California.


21. Miscellaneous


A. Entire Agreement; Order of Precedence. These Terms contain the entire agreement, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings between the parties regarding the PhotographyTrader Service. These Terms do not alter the terms or conditions of any other electronic or written agreement you may have with PhotographyTrader for the PhotographyTrader Service or for any other PhotographyTrader product, feature, service or otherwise. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and any other agreement you may have with PhotographyTrader, the terms of that other agreement will control only if these Terms are specifically identified and declared to be overridden by such other agreement.


B. Amendments. We reserve the right to make changes or modifications to these Terms from time to time, in our sole discretion. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide you with notice of such changes, such as by sending you an email and/or by posting the amended Terms via the PhotographyTrader Service and updating the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. All amended Terms will become effective immediately on the date they are posted to the PhotographyTrader Service unless we state otherwise via our notice of such amended Terms. Any amended Terms will apply prospectively to use of the PhotographyTrader Service after such changes become effective. Your continued use of the PhotographyTrader Service following the effective date of such changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes. If you do not agree to any amended Terms, you must discontinue using the PhotographyTrader Service.


C. Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and such decision will not affect the enforceability of such provision under other circumstances, or of the remaining provisions hereof under all circumstances.


D. Waiver. Our failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege under these Terms will not operate as a waiver thereof.


E. Relationship. PhotographyTrader is an independent contractor for all purposes, and is not your agent or trustee.


F. Assignment. You may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without prior written consent from PhotographyTrader, including by operation of law or in connection with any change of control. PhotographyTrader may assign or transfer any or all of its rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, without obtaining your consent or approval.


G. Headings. Headings of sections are for convenience only and will not be used to limit or construe such sections.


H. Survival. Sections 15 (Disclaimer of Warranties), 17 (Limitation of Liability), 18 (Indemnity), 19 (Arbitration), 20 (Governing Law; Venue), this Section 21 (Miscellaneous), and any other term that, by its nature, should survive, will survive any termination or expiration of these Terms.
