TERMS AND CONDITIONS
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TOS SHALL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCESS DESCRIBED IN THE SECTION TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION AND APPLICABLE LAW” BELOW. PLEASE READ THE SECTION TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION AND APPLICABLE LAW” CAREFULLY.
Youbetme provides users with a global platform to list and accept bets (”Service”). Bets made on Youbetme are made on the honor system which means that bettors are not obligated to pay when they lose, although it is our hope that they will, not because they have to, but because they should want to. In any case, bets made on Youbetme carry no term, express or implied that winning bettors will be paid when they win.
Payments on wins are not guaranteed. Betting on Youbetme is between individual bettors and groups of bettors. Youbeme does not take bets itself nor does it endorse or recommend any bettors. Bettors always retain the right not to pay their losses. An individual bettorsr protection against that possibility is your reputation or “street cred”(sic) i.e., you leave negative feedback when/if you run into a welcher, and that feedback makes it that much less likely that other people will do business with your welcher in the future. Youbetme does not take a side in bets, one way or the other. And just like when you bet with your pals in the real world, there is no guarantee that losing bettors will pay their losses.
The Company operates the Site so you can place and track non-monetary wagers made among members of your designated social network (”Services”). Depending upon the setting you choose, your bets can either be private (viewable only by the individuals wagering in the bet) or public (viewable by all members of your designated social network). The Site allows you and your friends to monitor and update ongoing bets either online or via text message. We reserve the right to modify or change our Site or any of the Services, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to you, and we are not obligated to support or update the Site or any Services. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party in the event that we exercise our right to modify, change or discontinue the Site or any Services.

Binding Arbitration and Applicable Law (Continued from Section titled “Binding Arbitration” above)
Arbitration shall be conducted by and submitted to a single arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) selected from and administered by the San Francisco, California office of JAMS (“JAMS”), in accordance with its then-existing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive or indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Arbitrator and JAMS; however, the Arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the Arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the Arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Each party shall fully perform and satisfy the arbitration award within fifteen (15) days of the service of the award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a claim or dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.
